Finally got it all wired up and playing! It sounds really good so far and that is just on the cart in the middle of the shop floor. It should sound a lot better once it is actually in the vehicle. I hope!
For those wondering why i would take a 100% clear box and make 3 of the panels NOT clear anymore...I did that because even though it looks badass sitting in the shop, once it hits the Caddy i don't need to see carpet (under it) or the factory "jack stowage" or rear AC panel as i look into the box. Two sides and bottom are now mirrors. It's hard to get a good photo because so much going on in this box but what it does is it makes it look like endless subs. I would rather see that than my stock carpet and plastic interior panels. The mirrors are mounted on the outside facing in through the 1" acrylic. This also gives me a nice little recess for the LED's to sit. When all this is done, when it is in the vehicle, it will be trimmed to match the interior and NOT just one big cube plopped into the hatch area. Hang tight, watch me do what i do. Thanks for joining me on this epic journey if you are! :)

About my subs (visit www.b2audio.com/rampage for more info)
RAMPAGE XM
2012 had the seeds planted for the RAMPAGE. A direct derivate from the legendary & innovative X2C subwoofer with a 5″ voice coil. Although the RAMPAGE XM is based on a 4″ coil platform, its performance will not stand in the shade of its heritage. In many ways, it pushes the boundaries even further. The new basket offers better cooling with improved SAFT (Smooth Air Flow Tech) & has the ability of offering even more XMAX than the previous basket . 3.15″/ 80 mm peak to peak handled by the 315 mm / 12.4″ spiders , that are amongst the largest you will find on any traditional 15″ subwoofer (without the use of adapters), in addition the new basket offers a triple landing so you can customize the stiffness and spider size to your application.
OCAF
OCAF version II (Optimized Cooling And Flow) implemented in the new motor design has adapted the large flares from the X2C’s backplate. In addition the pole piece features a dual cooling system that leads the air more efficiently away from the voice coil. Even though the internal diameter of the coil is 4″, the outer diameter of 4.33″ makes this coil a widebody, coupled with an 8 layer tall winding, this design is made for daily abuse or demo days!
The RAMPAGE XM’s motor keeps the same 10.24″ diameter as previous XM subwoofers, but the triple stack ferrite slugs are increased by 25%. Still we are able to keep the entire height of the motor to a mere 10% more than 2nd gen XM. With the longer Xmech, the added 10% comes into play.
Stiffness
Another tool was made for the XL composite dustcaps with embossed B2 logo. The half spherical design with wider wedges stiffens up the cone, offering greater stability, and helps keep that transient response tight. So when the bass drops its on point. Using a slightly wider strech foam surround there’s less mechanical parts that will limit your stroke.

Knipex are good but please put up some of the work you did that actually required them. I wanna see. :) So many people cheerlead for their "favorite" product and don't have any experience other than reading something on the internet. lol
