  1. ^^^ Yup, especially when your on a tiny island surrounded by salty ocean like he is because that process is nothing but sped up with that salty moist air!

  2. I am building a bed blow through box for my 3 sundown x15's. Is a 24" wide 12" tall port too small? I have cut the blow through hole and it looks really small for that much air to be pushing through. Will it choke? I have a bucket seat on the passenger side, that I have to keep in the truck(kids). So I can't extend it very far to that side. Thanks!

  4. I've had a week of cloudy days. Is there any alternatives to curing sun flash resin on a cloudy day?

  6. Say you have a 2 channel amp that you can bridge to a single channel and in bridged mode the amp is stable at 4 ohm. Say you have one subwoofer that is 2 ohm per coil, then you connect the coils in series so that it matches the 4 ohm output of the amp. Then you connect the sub to the amp like this: This is just an example and your sub amp may need to be connected differently, an incorrect connection may damage your sub and/or amp. Your sub should have printed how many ohms is each coil, typically for cheap subs you get 2 ohm per coil or 4 ohm per coil. Also post the model of the amp. When you connect your sub to your amp correctly you get more output and a much louder system.

  7. that's why lug connections (with glue lined heat shrink) are the best for battery connections on battery terminal blocks ( especially on under hood batteries and battery deletes ) , the use of wire ferrules w/ glue lined heat shrink for amp inputs . tinned wire will also help too.

  9. ^^ good advice Wire doesn't degrade unless something causes it to. CCA is a fair bit more sensitive to this on account of galvanic corrosion behavior + aluminum/s propensity to form oxide layers in air. Old aluminum home wiring needs grease in the connections for that reason. OFC is more robust in this regard. Tinned OFC, even more so. But even still - your connections should be sealed. Good terminations are gas-tight and impermeable. Either soldered, or crimped with closed-ended lugs, and covered with adhesive lined heat shrink. Normal 'decorative' heat shrink has no place under the hood IMO. If you really need to, toss some (high temp) hot glue in the connection before you put heat shrink over it - that accomplishes the same thing with respect to sealing. Aside from that.... Just inspect stuff periodically. Keep your wires off of sharp objects. Any rub-points should be bolstered with some loom to prevent frictional wear.

  10. periodically check for corrosion for under hood battery connections , for lug connections always use glue lined heat shrink , for direct wire connections (set screw type) use a wire ferrule with heat shrink to better protect wire from moisture .
