  1. Past hour
  2. Yeah your completely correct , so right now I'm digging into the head unit . It has far more cross overs and eq adjustments then I realized . I'm pretty confident I'm over driving the speaker with power . I mean it gets pretty hot when ran at the top . If I run it at peak frequency around 40 hz I can slam it no problem and its loud all the way up at the right around where I gain matched the head unit at . . But anytbing with lows in it heats it up very quickly and It starts getting smelly . Any suggestions on that ? Also any help with a procedure on setting my subsonic filter would be helpful . Because I'm not really sure what it's set at .
  3. Today
  4. This is an amazing thread. I have (2) 08S8L72 Kicker Solo Barics and had a KX600.1 powering them. These are the DVC 2 ohm version of the square subs. Is it possible to create an isobaric transmission line enclosure with them and using the KX600.1? Well, I appreciate any help anyone can give me. I used to be in CarAudio back in the 80's-90's but now I am trying to build my 17 year old son a surprise system for his 18th Birthday. Take car, Randy
  5. ^^^^ Home boy above is on it. Your winding/coil is fucked. Meter it. See what it reads. Then, recone it.
  6. Voice coil is toast. You would have to recone it but its roughly same price to get a new one since skar doesnt offer vvx recones as far as i know. You may contact skar directly and see wat they can do for you.
  7. Any suggestions on a amp? I would like to stay at 4ohms yet have enough to to the job
  8. So currently I have 2 comp vr 12s in a sealed box hooked up to the evo 3k at 4ohm which is abt 900-1000watts. But I got a type r 10 a couple months back and took the 12s out and just had the 10.
  9. Hey any body that can help with my problem wod be greatly appreciated. I I one vvx v3 12 d2 and it's about a ur old. Was going to send it in but I been on the diy thing so I tore into it myself. Upon finding two of my tinsel leads were toasted I put some new wire in there and resoldered. Now that being done I reconnected it to amp in Yukon and got nothing. Pushed in on the come and got a small spark. After that I discoverd that if I pushed in on the cone I was now getting a response or signal that was playing thru the sub. But if I let up it goes away. Send help what my problem is around can I fix it.
  10. It shouldn't lower the tuning much. Maybe two Hz. What is the internal height of your box? I'll check your numbers.
  11. Good idea on the wedge. The spec of this box is 14 cu. ft. net tuned at 32 hz for 2 Fi BTL 4 18s. Any ideas how badly it would effect tuning? I don’t care if it drops 1 or 2 hz, just not wanting it to end up in the mid 20s or something. If it were you would you stick with this or entertain a different port style? Your enclosure pics are very nice btw. Thanks for your help.

  13. They have a couple hours of use on them. Have the original boxes and everything. Awesome sounding 8s. 400 shipped for the pair
  14. What's the slope of your infrasonic filter? If you are adjusting eq you should be removing peaks and not boosting dips. Those frequencies don't have anything to do with your sub though.
  15. Thank you. I am 48 and wanted to build a loud system and now i am trying to build a SQ car with the Malibu. 2250 watts i am good with. With subs wiring forward it gets damn loud to me.
  16. Yeah, that will definitely lower your tuning. It shouldn't hurt performance otherwise, but tuning will be affected. If it were my I'd put a wedge deflector on the back panel to improve airflow.
  17. probably feels like driving a new car with that new view nice work love the car old school mitssy, first page is fucked with photobucket so I dont know what it is but I like the older dash lights replaced with LED colors. I bet it sounds badass and balanced im suprised you dont get the more bass itch and freakout with 5000 watts
  18. Battery update: The XS Power D3400 showed up today. Fedex said it would be delivered at the end of the work day but at 3:40 when i checked the progress it was delivered @ noon. So i asked my boss( my oldest Brother) if i could run home to grab the package( i live 3 minutes from work) and glad i did. I live in a good neighborhood but when i got home the Battery was shipped in its Original XS Box. WTF... This battery cost my $465.!!!!! Shipping was the $165 and the Battery was $300. OUCH !!!!! I would have hoped it could have been put in plain box. My dash pad for the Lancer came in too. Double score . Super excited to have this battery, Lancer has Kenetic Energy battery's and i was never really happy with there performance so glad i got the best in the market IMO. Looking at a LimitLess Lithium Cell. I would like the 45 AH but has a $1000 price tag where the 25 AH was $700. The hole system will be around 2800 watts, but i might upgrade in the future and i want the power to not ever be an issue. Not sure if i can swing a Singer alt this year so the factory 150 amp will have to do but next year for sure! More to shop in the next 2 weeks. for now i need to save up for the 45 AH lol
  19. 3000 watts at 2ohm for 200bucks on the smd dyno but it def sounds different than class D. Im ok it makes my wipers dance and my american bass xfl can take the abusive output for the 20minutes i play a day. for a daily drive to work and back with 1 battery it gets the job done. sitting at a car meet playing fucking forget about it, when the amp gets hot it turns to shit on the output and it heats up fast even with fans. im waiting for koreans to perfect the newest brazil style. This video taught me almost everything I know about taramps
  20. Nothing to exciting but makes the car sound a bit better. A COVERKING dash pad at $44 plus shipping came out to be $58. Good fitment and quality. Now to tune the system a bit better. After i put the SQ amps in i just wanted to pound on the system to see what it can take. Now i have T.A. on and need to spend some time tuning. Every Saturday if find a empty parking lot and to crank it up now its time to make it sound better.
  21. Thanks for the response , seems pretty dead here now . And the prefab box is ported and according to the website it is tuned around 40 hz . Also would not having my eq completely flat cause any issues maybe ? Because I think I have some added mis and treble that I never actually adjusted .
  22. Maybe this will make a little more sense, see how the port ends leave the 5 5/8” gap to the rear wall? Sorry I didn’t add the picture before, it was definitely needed. Thanks.
  23. Fucker won’t even update this shit with finished pics can you say rude
  24. I get clipping with Bluetooth on my note 9 so I use aux where I have none. 80 hz is a good starting point for your lpf. Ssf isn't needed if you have a sealed box. If you have a ported box it's really a matter of what it's tuned to.
