This is the Dist. Block i used (forgot to to take pics, for i had already installed the front fold out cup holder where this resides) the Kicker Amp uses an external fuse 150A,

the Maxi Amp you can only go to 120A so i installed this...

That’s certainly a lot of amps in those cables. Do you use additional charging on a second battery or a bigger alternator? 
Just wondering do those massive capacitors do anything for the subwoofer amplifiers or are they just for show?

ive got some old skool kicker gear, mostly still boxed but not as heavy duty as yours.  It’s original kicker impulse 5 or 6 channel amplifier. Kicker resolution 8” subs, 4” components kit, 51/4” component kit and a 12” impulse subwoofer.  That’s the only American stuff I have. I have an old Alpine headunit (pull out) but no internal amp along with a 6 way alpine active xover. It came fitted to an old jag I bought years ago with 4 Harman Kardon amplifiers.  I was thinking of fitting it to a 91 Range Rover I currently have that needs restoration lol.  All my stuff is old and/or needs restoration.  All looks good on paper though 😉

The plus about the 06 Dodge Ram 5.9L Cummins it does have two batteries, i've looked into a higher output alternator and it's not needed the stock one may get upgraded later.

I've read about capacitors and they are not needed, they only give you a slight boost when the draw is needed and basically as you know they are nothing more than a storage for energy that does not last long thus two batteries are the best alternative.All Alternators charge batteries no matter what, now if i was supplying greater power to  four 12" or 15" subs and or 18"  (A SPL Competition System) than yes a stronger alternator would be needed and even more banks of batteries. Deep cells (Marine batteries) but as long as they recharge any battery will do, it's all suggestive out there and what you need or have to spend, there's a lot of marketing, hype, smoke, mirrors & snake oil out there, when cables has to be the greatest blunder for suckers, now saying that, it is very important to have larger AWG wiring in Car Audio no matter what. 

i use to run telephone wires to two MTX speakers off an old JVC slide equalizer and amp in the patio area years ago (it's all i had for the back yard sound at the time and it Rocked!).

i really don't want the Infinity Midrages on the dash but there's no other place for them, i could fiberglass the map pockets in on the doors but i really do not want to( i use my pockets). that said the sound reflecting off the windshield as i have read that it may not be nice as it bounces into your face, so i can not wait to see if my eyes will crack:D

I wondered what truck the speakers were being fitted to.  As you say if it comes with two batteries already it must have a split charge circuit there already and a good alternator to do that. 
your infinity midranges, is it possible to fit them at the base of the a pillar but firing towards the driver position? Speaker reflection hmmm......it’s like the big no no in car audio but it’s what happens inside a vehicle anyway.  Years ago I had a car with stock dash position speakers shooting straight at the windscreen, I was advised to fit door mounted speakers high up instead with a tilt towards the driver.  I did that and maybe a little more clarity but not much to be honest, probably due to a 2 way speaker than the stock dual cone. Then eventually bought a pair of tweeters fitted those in the stock dash position together with the full range door mounted speakers and that made a huge improvement! So for me reflection off the windscreen worked in that car.  It’s something I’m going to do again with a slight difference. Use 4 tweeters up front via a 4 channel amplifier. So 2 or 3 way door components as per normal then gradually bring in the dash tweeters so they fill in the stereo sound without pin pointing where they are if that makes sense?  I’ll use the amplifier gain for that and in theory the gain will be less than the door mounted tweeters due to sound reflection making them appear brighter.

i've read into the deflective theories enough to know it should be fine.

i had a 2001 Dodge 2500 and the tweeters were in the collums they were quite brite, being these are Mids i'm hoping the 150Hz that these pups can get howling down to will be nice and tight. i could always invert them, left side is possible, the right side the heater box would be in the way (behind the glove box, still doable just take a L o n g  W h i l e to install.

been messing around with some kHz's today with the Morels (35Hz-22000 , they are extremely vocal and thus i have faded to the rear's ever so slightly to keep my ears from bleeding:lol:

i've tried Full Range but bass is still too much and LPF is out of the question and thus the HPF is the singer and these Morels do just that, my Pioneers were a better fit for that much more bass output 29Hz-50K but they would have not taken the extra HP's  the Diamond puts out vs the Pioneer GM-D8604 amp that had been replaced paired up with the Pioneer TS-6900 Pros these 6x9's did not disappoint.

now just waiting for the bass blockers (just in case a low signal squeezes by).

Those look good 👍, what sort of enclosure are you thinking of? 
I had a pair of sealed enclosure Sony 12s in the back of a 2002 focus estate and they were loud!  I think 200w rms per speaker from a kenwood mono amp. At Leman 24hr for a couple of years that car was the sound system for the group I was with.  Then married and divorced within 6 years put paid to nice things until recently.  Big power amps have moved on a lot since the early 2000’s  🙂

oh my i'am dangerous, so like i have had my eyes (and ears) out for these for a couple of years now and i did use their RCA cables because the jackets were so very handsome,

their SW are supposed to be quite slamming and perhaps someday i'll have a pair, their amps are said to be pretty efficient but these may be had here pretty darn soon,

Cause!

You know how you get tickled with RC hop ups?

Well, Audio makes me feel the same way except it's alot louder!
