Hey guys, I just want to thank all of your for your help, support, and most of all, great prices on used equipment. This system went in my father's Chevy Avalanche and everything except the wiring was purchased from members of this community to stay within a $500 budget. It's been installed for a few months now but I finally got around to taking some photos. Take a look and see how it turned out...
(specs are a little foggy since some gear was purchased over 6 months ago...correct me if I'm wrong about any of this)
Amplifier: NeXT 5-channel 4x30 +1x200 ($145 shipped)
Subwoofer: NeXT 10" ($30 shipped)
Speakers: Dayton Woofers, Seas tweeters (I think), with pods ($215 shipped)
Crossover: PPI X3 3-way crossover ($26 shipped)
Interconnects: Short runs made from CAT5 and Street wires end caps ($13 shipped). Long runs purchased from KnuKoncepts
Other wiring: purchased from KnuKonceptz
Total thus far: $429.
I think the order was about $50 from KnuKonceptz and I spend $50 on a PAC OEM-2 line out converter (could have got one cheaper but I wanted it to be plug-and-play). Then I spent a little more for supplies at Parts Express, Home Depot, and the local fabric store. So the total was probably around $600. Of course, it is wired and ready to go if/when my Dad wants to upgrade the head unit (currently the weakest link in the system).
Ok ok, enough with the mumbo jumbo, How about some pics?

Just an FYI, this wasn't the first time I've installed audio gear before. It was however the first time I pieced together DIY speakers and bought non-car-audio components. It is my second active setup (I am running DLS Iridiums in a 4-way active setup in my car)
