hey guys..
new to the site. well posting but not reading. anywways im starting my build today. after finding out about all these other companys besides kicker and rockford and jl and such and some coaxing by my freind (chewie on here) i decided to upgrade my audio system.

previously i had two l7s in a ported enclosure on a brutus bxi1610 it was good but i wanted something a little more. so upon my buddys reccomendation i looked at t3 audio first but then it being a little out of my budget range decided on two sundown audio z15s. i must say for the price they are preety nice. and will probably purchase some nighshades later on down the road.

as for my amp i ditched the 1600 watt bxi and found a good deal on a xxv collossus.

i will be running tsunami 1/0 guage power and ground wire along with a redtop optima up front and two kenetik 800 series batterys out back.
also to back up the batterys i will be adding a high output alternator.

the box i am building will be made out of 1 inch mdf with a double baffle front approx 8 cubes total tuned to approx 32 hz .

STAY TUNED PICS LATER TODAY OF PROGRESS!!!

its only 1 ohm stable if wired 1 ohm at each channel.
we will be wiring the subs for a final 2 ohm load bridged that should give us around 3200 watts rms

not sure if we should build one big box or two seperate boxes.. both tuned the same as the big box.

nope not stock electrical red top optima out front and two kinetik 800s out back. and 250 ho alt.

Box building is taking MUCH longer than expected.

In 6 hours hardly got anything done due to this inclimate Michigan weather.

Have close to half of the wood all cut out, and just got back inside, its freezing cold.

I'll post up some pictures of the box tomarrow :)

My box in the makings :D
Posted Image

So yeah, I'm almost done with the box just need to slap on the portface. So I decided to see if it could fit in my trunk now..

Chewie and I measured my trunk and little did we notice, the corners are rounded -_-. So I'm outside in the freezing cold beating the living crap out of my trunk trying to fit my box in. I'll get some pictures of me mutilating my trunk


if anyone wants the box cuts here they are

41 wide
27 1/2 deep
18 high


bottom plate - 27.5 x 18
top plate - 27.5 x 18
left plate - 17.25 x 39.5
right plate - 16.5 x 39.5
back plate - 27.5 x 39.5
front plate - 24.25 x 39.5

port L1 - 14 x 39.5


We had a little extra wood, so why not make a battery box lol

Edit: Just beat the crap out of my trunk, trying to make room for my box corners

no room for subs back port back. or subs up port back.. this is all that would really work..

the box once found to work well will be painted with textured paint and double baffled

his trunk isnt normal its not flat like your trunk is.. its got a really deep well with a really high hump behind the seats. (the gastank is there) so we couldnt have really put subs forward.

Oh dude trust me, if I found my sledge hammer it would have been ON. I would have been standing in my trunk taking fullswings lol.

The trunk was such an insane biotch, it ended up tearing a nice gash in each corner lol. I used ice(roofing material/tar based roll) heated it up and stuck it to the corners to seal it, looks pretty nice and did the job. Also welded the outside so nothing gets in to my trunk lol, so its completely sealed.

Woohoo at knukonceptz battery term block

Well guess thats a perm wire with that block.

Nothing to do with thread but we did it an hour ago lol, fried radio
Posted Image
We call it, Alpine Falls. Lets hope they take it back for warranty =P


So update on the car what we did today,
This is taking a lot longer due to this cold weather, but we jacked up my car at like a 30degree angle (neighbors laughed when they drove by, lol), and ran the 0 guage through the frame. Did the big 3 with 0 guage, finished the battery box and parralled the two batterys with 4 guage. Made some adjustments to my car for the system, I'll take pictures tomarrow after school. About to sound deaden the whole trunk tomarrow before the box goes in.
