    I design the mechanical portion of electric motors at work. Here's some Class H (180degC) cable laying across a stator end turn. If anyone appreciates cable porn, its you dirty motherfuckers.

    After sanding and second coat of clear: After sanding and a third coat of clear: And after another sand and a FOURTH coat of clear. Like candy Then threw a fresh coat of white in the trunk until I figure out exactly what Im doing with it Mounted the lithium cooling fan with some sound foam Battery cage: Drying a fresh coat of clear in the sun smooths it out sooo well Here's the spread with poor lighting Neoprene foam on all contact points of the batteries to the cage The batteries slip in the cage from the rear and this piece holds the batteries in All together The JY bus bars come loose without lock washers installed Insulation to prevent air leaks. I want all the air to flow thru the bank Next up: a shit ton of cable cutting and crimping

    It's been a LONG time since I have updated this build on here! Hope my video shows up! 😂 I compete in N.S.P.L. so I only test for that class and don't give out my build specs cause I still compete. My scores are Outlaw with mic in the kick with the subs firing from cargo area. That is how the class I compete in is setup. However for those that like to know I'm about 1db down for a legal sealed score mic on windshield. This video was from start to finish for me reaching my 150db goal I set for my self.

    This is the story of the one day build we did for my dad on his 55 Bel-Air "Dirty Bird" I had already planed on doing a sound system in here but ended up trading it off to have all the pinstripe work done on it. So this is the story on it

    The problem is your port velocity won't be low. It will be over 50 m/sec, you will be throwing 2/3rds of your amp power away to port compression. As far as all the examples you posted, there are two problems. The first is we don't know the specifics of those installs (box size, tuning frequency, input power, etc), so I can't say whether they have enough port area or not. The second problem is just because they are getting good performance with what they have doesn't mean they wouldn't get a lot better performance if they ran more port area. Maybe they would, maybe they wouldn't, again without knowing the specifics no one can say. Its your build, do what you want, I really don't care. I'm only telling you this stuff because I'm trying to help you. Its up to you whether you take my advice or not. I've personally done a fair amount of port optimization testing where I used a calibrated mic to actually measure output and what happens to it when you don't have enough port area. But if you would rather rely on the ear-o-meter or how hard a shirt flaps in a youtube video, good luck with that. If you want to see the testing I've done you can see it here: https://www.stevemeadedesigns.com/board/topic/204068-port-compression-and-optimization/

    Those with a chev, know the way the dash/gauges get when you lean on your loud stuff. Needles go everywhere, lights all come on. Annoying. Cant see RPM revs for competing, or anything. Picked up a OBD2 wifi unit. Fucker was 11 bucks. Loaded the free software, and bobs your uncle. Gonna glass the tablet into the new console that is going in. Unit is a Panlong. There are several. I just nabbed this one. Works tits. Reacts fast, has everything. Rpm, oil pressure, speed, everything on the dash, and, fuck, shows codes and error shit even. Easy peasy, japanesey ..... quicky vid, right as we got it running.....

    This thread could have gone in a completely different direction. An informative and constructive one. But your head is stuck in your ass, so good luck on your endeavors.

    So I get to this point and the bass knob I bought from someone on FB wasnt working on the right side channel. After 5 days of working on this bitch, and you get down to the final step of tuning and you have a bad RCA? UGH. So I took it apart. This one connection looked pretty bad, but wasnt sure if this was the problem or if the problem was in the potentiometer. Checked the bare wire. Nope, wasnt this connection. Bummer. This is a SoundDrive RCA for comparison Well well. Broken lead at the pot At this point, I shouldve known that the burn mark would signify that the pot was likely burnt up. I didnt even think to check the pot, instead, I kept testing at the RCA ends. So I went about pulling the tape off to see how the other connections were. Fucking cold welds/solders And a third. This is NOT a mistake, this is poor workmanship. The solder isnt soaked up well into the wire. Spent the time to reconnect the leads to the pot Then reconnected the RCA cable to the connector But then after testing realized that the pot was actually bad. What a waste of time. Still need to contact the guy on FB. However, I wont be buying anything from him again. Anyway, I'll make my own bass knob at a later date with the parts from this one. Went to Ace Hardware for this adapter FIN Damn, this bitch plays. Im on that half ohm life now

    I had NO idea. Holy perspective. ... scramblesmy Mellon. * One Top Fuel dragster 500 cubic-inch Hemi engine makes more horsepower than the first 4 rows at the Daytona 500. * Under full throttle, a dragster engine consumes 11.2 gallons of nitro methane per second; a fully loaded 747 consumes jet fuel at the same rate with 25% less energy being produced. * A stock Dodge Hemi V8 engine cannot produce enough power to merely drive the dragster’s supercharger. * With 3000 CFM of air being rammed in by the supercharger on overdrive, the fuel mixture is compressed into a near-solid form before ignition. Cylinders run on the verge of hydraulic lock at full throttle. * At the stoichiometric 1.7:1 air/fuel mixture for nitro methane the flame front temperature measures 7050 degrees F. * Nitro methane burns yellow. The spectacular white flame seen above the stacks at night is raw burning hydrogen, dissociated from atmospheric water vapor by the searing exhaust gases. * Dual magnetos supply 44 amps to each spark plug. This is the output of an arc welder in each cylinder. * Spark plug electrodes are totally consumed during a pass. After 1/2 way, the engine is dieseling from compression plus the glow of exhaust valves at 1400 degrees F. The engine can only be shut down by cutting the fuel flow. * If spark momentarily fails early in the run, unburned nitro builds up in the affected cylinders and then explodes with sufficient force to blow cylinder heads off the block in pieces or split the block in half. * Dragsters reach over 300 MPH before you have completed reading this sentence. * In order to exceed 300 MPH in 4.5 seconds, dragsters must accelerate an average of over 4 G’s. In order to reach 200 MPH well before half-track, the launch acceleration approaches 8 G’s. * Top Fuel engines turn approximately 540 revolutions from light to light! * Including the burnout, the engine must only survive 900 revolutions under load. * The redline is actually quite high at 9500 RPM.

    Slowly making progress. Got one door almost done with body filler. Last coat of filler is drying now and then it will be ready for vinyl. Then to do it all again on the passengers door. Lol. Also, got two sets of soundqubed super tweets installed. Will have to wait till it's light out to get a good pic of those. But here's the one door thats almost ready for vinyl.

    Few small updates. We finished the front wall where the loading wall will sit. It's 6" thick and isn't going anywhere. Of course, we had to test fit one of these things to make sure the motor wouldn't hit our 45-degree angle floor. We managed to get one to sit and it cleared it with ease. Loading these things is something else. We also added our back plates (2) sheets. Metal cage will weld around it. The box is coming along. It's almost time for paint.

    You are correct that lower tunings will have lower port velocity compared to a higher tuning, but are you aware of how much lower? In your case it won't be enough. Here it is in WinISD: The green line is your Skar 15 in a 4.16 cu box, tuned to 21 Hz, with a 6" round port. The yellow line is the same thing tuned to 32 Hz, for comparison. As you can see the port velocity is less with the lower box, like you said, but its still WAY TOO HIGH. You need to be under 30 m/sec, and even lower would be better. Now if you still want to debate with me why you think I'm wrong, that's fine. But I'm only going to participate if you are able to come up with some actual evidence to support your opinion, and by evidence I mean measured results.

    Haven't been able to get full numbers but the box is tuned to 29Hz and so far seems to peak at 31Hz. Should be good for a 140dB+ daily after some testing! Would be higher but there's a lot of cabin space to fill in that Suburban. Everything sounds great and I couldn't be happier. The timing was awesome as well since I literally just got this truck and was planning to put in a system. Nothing's better than that SOTM WINNER Banner though! 😎

    Wow that looks really nice, looks very high quality like you said. No hate or anything - Are you going to use it a lot? I know you said there are some comparable that cost thousands but it just seems like a lot of money to me. I've been using the $40 yellow case one from amazon for years and has worked just fine, but I'm not an everyday installer or anything - just used on my systems.

    Still need to do some cosmetic shit like put the fender well covers in, finish the relayed fuse block, etc etc. but here's the bank and the wiring. Keep in mind I wanted to be able to pickup someone from the airport with their luggage, so maintaining about half the trunk space was paramount. These coils measure somewhere between 0.3 and 0.4 ohm. Every time I've measured a single sub with coils in parallel, I've never read below 0.8, so I think the coils are closer to 0.4. But I guess I'm living the 1/3 ohm life. Couldnt get out til after dark since I was setting my SSF when I got home, but here's a quick vid. Didnt drop below 12.8V at idle. Not bad for 2 5Ks at 1/3 ohm each. I'll get some vids in the daytime soon. This damn early sunset sucks

    The Sniper v.2 box is already built. My daughter did the artwork on this one as well. I run in a 0-24" class so we decided to run 3-6.5's in a larger box this time. I've had this box put up cause I set my goal to do a 150db with just 2 by the end of the year and a 147db with just a single 6.5 before I bring out the Triple Threat in the Sniper v.2 box. It's hard to capture all the fine details my daughter puts in here art work by pictures but she spends hours on her work. I will begin testing this setup at the first of the year.
