  2. 4- new VFL8's behind the seat of my standard cab Dodge on a Sundown SFB3K. The box is 4.1 cubes net tuned to 33 hz. and peaks at 29 hz. in the truck. Big 3, AGM, and a Mechman 320. It's also got 4- 6-½" coaxial and two 3-½" super tweeters in factory locations on a 400 watt American Bass 4 channel amp. My recent daily driver build.

  3. Time to start wiring up the terminals. For this i am using an SMD DCL 4.2 and a SMD TX-2. The DCL 4.2 will help me wire up the series/parallel stuff clean. It might look straight forward (and it is kinda) but it is a little more complicated than it looks. These subs are dual 1's. They are each wired in parallel. Then they are wired in series (each group of 3) to bring that set down to 1.5 ohms. The amps they are being hooked to are rated at 2ohm bridged so this is a little lower than i am supposed to but that should be OK. More power! Both the DCL

  4. Yesterdays Progress: I started working on remote knob installation. And this is what i ended up with. A very functional but ugly arrangement. There just wasn't the time or place for a better solution so this will have to do. I will look at ordering a new GM piece this spring for when i sell the car down to road if ever! lol Another look. I had to modify the sound deadening to have panel fit properly and i put a strip of velcro on the bottom to help it adhere to the carpet.

  8. I start work Monday so progress will be even slower. I did start the Malibu at the beginning of the week, she fired right up and I let it get to temp to run for 15 minutes.

  9. I personally would save up for a better amp, more electrical, and have someone design me a box specifically for those subs and I'd build it. but if that's the direction you want to go, go for it. Nothing wrong with upgrading. That's a big part of the fun

  10. Agreed. You need a big 3 on that amount of rms. 1500 rms or more is when a big 3 needs to be done, at least. And at 2000 rms or more is when an extra battery should be added with a big 3. Honestly, 1500 rms an extra battery should be added too. But I’m guessing you are probably using a hifonics amp or something like that, so you just need to do a big 3 upgrade with 1/0 ofc.

  12. I put the back corner panels in. Wires have loom on them and the Damp Pro is Velcro around the edges. Rear Seat Frame and belts installed. That is as far as i will go with the rear seat assembly to be able to get to the wires just in case. WOW what a leap from where i was last week. I love it, work on HU and dash install tomorrow.

  13. Update: After a week of not looking at it, & -1 with wind chilly i decided not to go anywhere this weekend. I can keep the Malibu slide over and pull the Lancer out to work on it. Parts rooms are a mess so i cleaned basement first. Not too bad but i had to clean it up. Haven't touched downstairs in 2 weeks. Much better. Haven't seen this for awhile. I pulled all the equipment out to start putting factory panels in tomorrow.

Pac interface all done. Few more cables to run, then work on rear deck and start charging battery for a test run in the next couple of days. Really bummed today with it being V-day and my annive

  19. Yesterdays Updates: Bought a product to protect and shine. First product was a cleaner. After a hour and half i got both doors and pillar panel. Console not done. Clean this shit up good as it goes back in. I love this look, i came up with spotlighting the sub or light at the bottom for illumination. Here i have cut a piece of CCF for the console to help with road noise. I cut it the same size as the panel. Removed front bolt to get CCF in place

  20. Yesterday updates: Working on center console electrical, and everything else up front. wire management for putting panels back on. Clean ass channel if you ask me lol First panel to go back in for a long time now. Cleaning up wiring for center console to go in. Another look under dash. Console in but not mounted. I was getting froggy and forgot carpet on passenger side.

  21. An smd x-1 and some shca 4 gauge ofc to wire up my subwoofers. I’ve never wired up subwoofers with 4 gauge wire. I love this smd x-1 because of the clean way I can wire series parallel on it because of the back. So no double 4 gauge wires in any push pin terminals on my subwoofers. I could do that on regular aluminum binding posts, but not as good as an x series terminal cup. And plus they look clean and good.

  26. And you need dual positive 1/0 runs on that big 3 upgrade and dual positive 1/0 runs coming from that front battery to that rear secondary battery if you get a bigger alternator than a 320. And no matter the alternator size, you need dual 1/0 runs from that rear secondary battery to that subwoofer amp. And you never mentioned what you are gonna do about your mids and highs and an amp on those too. Because on that amount of subwoofer rms, you need more rms on aftermarket speakers and tweeters. And you need to put some sound deadening in your trunk, at the very least, if you dont wanna sound lik

  27. Now that i know that works, it is time to go the extra mile and do a complete 1 piece wrap around with laser cut and bent tabs. I will pop-rivet it together once they are all in place. a nice little 90 on all the tabs. Not gonna lie. It was kinda a bitch to get them in there. At least the first set. It got easier as i got to the more open area.

  28. Remember that since you didn’t buy that gear from that shop, even if they retune it and hook it up, if it messes up, then they aren’t held accountable and won’t pay out anything or give you new gear. So it’s best to just buy a fuse there and buy a dd1 and wait for it and hook up your setup then. There is no such thing as cutting corners or being cheap when it comes to achieving a good or decent car audio setup.

  29. Thanks man! Didn't see you had commented, i hope your shit is better than mine. lol I am way better than i was last sunday when i found out my wife went to Maui with her lover over V Day and the next day was our anniversary.

The Lancer has a bad lifter so really babying it and just need to get the Malibu at least driving with rear fill playing while i finish the trunk. No tunes what suck a dick so thats the goal,

  30. I agree. I almost went with 2 zero.4 falcon amplifiers instead of 2 Salt 4's for my build. That white is something to look at! But I haven't heard anyone say they where disappointed in any B2 product yet

  31. A lot of clipping, quick. Not "a lot" of clipping, could be quick, could be slow. The only true way of knowing you're not sending a clipped signal through your amp to your speakers is with a distortion detector or an oscilloscope.

  32. Damn. They should consider it in white as an option lol The LEDs on sold me. That looks good. I'm a bit jelly lol With the sub clearance, you worried about any box flex and them hitting? I know nothing about Plexi, so... asking for a friend? lol

  39. Some catch up progress. After laying down resin then next day I primed the port walls. The next morning we had a freak cold front. Well I woke up to this crap. I guess the second can or second tube of hardener was bad. The sides,inside and top of the port wall that were done with the first can. Dried perfect and no cracking. Ended up having to strip and grind down to wood. Then bindo and glaze again. This time it went as planned. I am using interior washable paint for the enclosure. The color is granite grey and seems to fit decently.

  40. Where I am at right now. Will have to make more braces to make sure I have no flex or sag over time. This enclosure will be in here for many years. The added 200lb braces on top are results of my error not the designer. When I took the measurements it was with the back seat in. I had to cut it out due to broken latches. Well after removing it I found out the floor raised 1" from the seat back. When I removed the headliner to make support brackets to secure the enclosure. I found out the factory braces were in the way and took up another 1". So I lost the double walls on top and bottom. Bottom

  41. List of available upgrades: AR Cone- Stronger/reinforced cone/surround Direct Leads- 8ga wire applied directly to the lead wire instead of soldered to the push terminals Black Carbon Fiber Dustcap Red or Blue and Black Carbon Kevlar Dustcap- Both options obviously have cosmetic value but also add strength to the cone. Level 4 upgrade for Level 3 subs- Level 4 coil and 1 extra spider if necessary. Xl upgrade for Level 4 Subs- XL coil and 1 extra spider if necessary. I think thats all of them.
