Well if u check overall cost it would be more than that.. so its technically not a budget build lol.. but is just stuff I accumulated over the years I using, minus the amp and dsp which on its own is about 3k..

So as my car is a hatch, I'm utilizing the two sides of the trunk area, one side will have an amp rack and the other will have the sub.. want to maintain the depth of trunk for my ppe and work stuff.. and I will modify the trunk floor so it can still be lifted up and have access to the spare..

One more thing I looking for is like a 4 gauge quick disconnect connector.. it have anything like that locally?.

Sorry eh I havent done anything music wise in about 10 years lol I real fish out of water lol

best you might get is a fuse block where you can remove the fuse to kill the wire and probably remove the wires after

He can probably visit modern electrical or likewise to see what options they would have or rig up something DIY
E.g those wire couplers with some heat shrink or plexi casing to prevent a short

I know there are options on Amazon but not sure of the amperage those are rated for on those quick connects

There are different versions of these available in some electrical shops. Rig it to suit? the 4guage terminal size I believe is the grey ones but they are pretty clunky like 4x2x1 inches if I remember correctly

He needs to get the one that is rated for 150 amps or more
Most are 50-60
