Unprotected wires going through chassis holes, heavy Audyn caps unsecured and poor soldering from the photos.

Can you take some better images? Might be the camera lens is mucky

Since this isn’t an automotive intended build are those protections for the wires needed? Or you have so much bass in your setup that you are afraid it will shake the wires inside so much and damage their isolation?

Anyway nice build!

Regards.

I used rubber grommets to put in those holes on my tube build
You can get various sizes at the local hardware store.
