Here are the pics fro my stereo project. It took a few weekends and many trips to Lowe's that they know my first name now. All of this went in an Centurion Avalanche with the Evolution tower. The tower was a PITA but got it completed. Thanks to the Hydrotunes people, Tim White and crew for lending out some advice on my project.

2 WS Syn 4
1 Pair WS Pro 80's
1 Pair WS MB-8's
1 WS 420 EQ

1 Fused Distribution Block 4 in 8 out
1 Ground Distribution Block 4 in 8 out
10' 4 GA JL Wire

Nice, the charger you have. You have some spacers between the charger and the wall, what are the spacers and where can I get those?

Those are just nylon spacers. Most any reputatable hardware stores have them. Ace usually has a good selection of that kinda stuff.

Matt, I get the same and visit the store so much, that I tell other customers where to find stuff and on which isle.

The spacers are white nylon. I used them because I have read and heard that the charger gets real hot and by the boat being in the garage during the summer and no AC, I figured it could use some air circulating to help keep it a little cooler. I used 1/2" spacers for the top and bottom. It helps.

Steve - HateNPain is correct. I used 4 GA instead of 1/0 because my batts are, as you can see in the pics, about 3 feet from the amps. If they were 10' plus then I would have used the 1/0. I used the JL 4 GA and JL 8 GA. great wire BTW and it has 2 sleeves. At first I was WTF is this and how hard it was to cut, but once you figure it out, then it is a snap. It also made it easier to pull through the tower since the inside is rough and the outer sleeve protects the inner sleeve.

Thanks Hate on the compliments. All I have to say is Attention to Detail!!
