Following! Just got part of my JLUR done. PacPro to Zapco ADSP-Z8, Hybrid Legatia L3SE in factory dash location, Unity 2 ohm 6.5" in the Metra pods and a Sundown SD3 10" in a sealed box right now. Sub is only getting 240 watts right now and seems way underpowered. Looking to swap out the sub and feed more power to it.

I ordered them too. If he didn't, I definitely will as soon as I get them!

Let me ask you something, could there be a more perfect fit?!?!

The amps drop right in to the storage area and even leave plenty of room under them to store the dsp and all the wiring...

nice fit... it was about an inch to short for my zapco's..
Lucky as fuck fit, huh?! Did you realize that plastic thing IS the body? There is no sheet metal under or around it...

My wife and I have begun divorce proceedings, so I decided to put that dream on hold until I see this drama through... :(

My OCD has sometimes been uncomfortable with some of the wiring in my previous builds, so this one MUST be laid out and routed to perfection...

I'm gonna run power AND ground outside of the vehicle and drill holes in the storage tub with 0 gauge running right into distribution blocks.

How are you going to deaden your hardtop? I got the Hot Heads headliner kit, but not sure what to do otherwise.
I have the factory headliner, but I will probably pull if and add some cld and maybe some ccf to the top and then reinstall the headliner. I did this in my 2016 and it work good.

I would used the thinner, lighter 80 mil KnuKonceptz cld for the top:

Lol dam you thought we were going to but 2 for a deal. Definitely going with the hot head complete kit minus the strips will put my own deadener then then the headliner. Had the factory one in my jk yes it helped but the hotheads one is better. Listen if your planing on deadening your Jeep. Put a sub in the back and play some low notes. Before you strip out interior. Grab some masking tape and start marking all the vibrating spots before you put interior back in.

Sorry man! I ended up buying on black friday on impulse.

I have my sub in now. It isn't generating enough bass to rattle crap. Haha. I am astounded at how quiet it is actually - it isn't like 240 watts is nothing...

That is good advice and exactly what I always do too... I even drive around with a role of tape for the same purpose, so I can tag any rattles I come across.

Any progress on your rig, David?
Not really, just lots of measuring planning and ordering product... I have the sub box designed nailed down, and all of the equipment either in my possession or on the way.

I received the Metra pods for the dash and I also ordered the severely overpriced ScanSpeak aperiodic vents... I was going to make my own, but I don't want to take the time to fiddle around with that.

I'll figure out the metra pod's airspace and post that up when I get a chance, and I am also going to take a look under the dash to see if I can enlarge the pods a little. Just by looking at the pods, I think they might need modifying to fit the Morel's, but that should be easy with a heat gun or a torch. ;)
