  1. So, ive had a build, or 8 on this forum..... I thought why not do it again. I went for a build in the runner some time ago, and gave up. Well, im starting it yet again. For now, (and those that know me, .. NO, this is not some spl monster) me and my team, are just going to focus on the mids, and highs, some amps, deadening, then electrical shit. Nothing crazy at all. That said, some gear has rolled in...... and more is on the way. Damore E type boards, Dayton audio DSP, Second Skin dampner, XS power wire, with some of Steve's distro blocks and fusing, as well as KNU. Again,

  5. hello this is the first time posting anything I thought I would share a project I've been working on. It's not quite finished yet. Hopefully I have put this in the right area.

  6. I made a few changes to my new amp rack. Had to make room for the 5th battery (on the way) plus a few other mods. Multiple layers of 1/2” and 1/8” acrylic (Clear, mirror, white and black) were used. The pieces are still loose, i will probably bond them together tomorrow. I have a lot more to do of course before it will take shape, but this is where it’s at right now. I can’t wait to see how it looks in the Caddy! These D'Amore Engineering amps are gonna look nutty when those displays light up!

  7. Starting on a build for this spring/summer. I have an 04 pt cruiser i think i will do it in. Just have to figure out why the hell the engine loses power randomly. Anyway, this will probably be a slow build until it gets some traction then hopefully it will be of to the races. The plan will be 2 Ascendant audio mayhem 12's each on a skar sk2500.1 at .5 each. Not sure about front stage yet. Thinking about doing a 3 ways with stevens audio stuff. Pics to follow.

  8. Starting some upgrades to my current system. Daily driver 2014 cruze. I did Door speakers when i first got it, Alpine Type-s Coax 6.5. Kept the stock tweeters on the dash. Alpine MRV f300 powering the doors, 50 x 4. I have had a few different subs in the vehicle. One 12, then two 15s. Now one 15 and planning on two 12's. Bunch of amplifiers and now i have an SFB 8000 from Sundown Before upgrades i had an Autocraft AGM (Advanced auto parts brand) and one D1200 from xs power. Not enough for 800 watts. Upgraded the alternator to 200 Amp

  10. Bummer. Guess we'll see. I'm not really doing all that much with it. Guess time will well. Maybe I'll hook it up, inside right now and see what happens. Mids and tweets got in,.. Satori, and Scanspeak. They both look awesome. Time will tell on those (performance wise) also.

  11. I was gonna put a pair on a bass 15k. Platinums are the shit. I just wish they were lower impedance, like .7-.8 per coil instead of a true 1 ohm. The guys at resilient sounds are the shit. They looked out for me. I’m not gonna say, but just know, they are the shit, not just the owners. Plus I’ve called them just to talk about car audio options and things like that and they are there to help and don’t brush people off. Now let me talk about subwoofers. Sundown x subwoofers aren’t spl subwoofers. I was sporting sundown before I went to deaf bonce. And before I was sporting sundown, I was sportin

  13. Them resilient platinums would outdo any of them subwoofers you listed and would do well in smaller enclosures if needed unlike the other subwoofers you listed. Plus resilient sounds owners are cool as shit. That aab 7900 is better than a sfb 8k. Sfb amps are so current hungry. So now that I’m talking about current. What are you thinking on an alternator and battery setup?

  14. She wants to have the loudest stereo at school, she powerlifts so she can make the boys look like girls, gets straight a's in college prep classes and does beauty pageants. A local club wants to have their guy build it so she can be part of the club but she wants her myself and my wife to build it so she can say she did it.. I guess we're going to add box builder to her list of things

  19. Today I made a lot of progress on the install. I removed all the stock speakers and ran new wire to each door. Of course with each step forward is two steps back. I don't have the speakers in the doors installed just yet, hopefully tomorrow. I do have the amp wired and sub playing, but that's all so far. When I took the pic the amp wasn't hooked up (clearly) so that's why you can see the ground wire. I really hope to have everything back together tomorrow, cause snow is coming starting tomorrow night and I don't have a garage. Now it's time to rest and figure out what my next move is.

  20. Made some wire guides out of clear 1/4" acrylic so when the wires tuck under the top amp i can keep them straight and even. I didn't want to stick LED's straight to my amp, to me that seems cheesy....so i figured this would also be a great place to mount those. While i was working on this, my son @Antheny916 came over and started making my custom length RCA's for me. At least the first side. Once the processor is ready to be hooked up and the wires routed, we will trim and make ends for them. Thanks

  21. All the rest of the speaker wires will eventually go somewhere. I still have the top rack to wire up and of course the monster power wire to all distro blocks AND the amps. Lots more fun times ahead.

  22. i'm not sure what the Tahoe has to do with this. Sorry man two totally different vehicles, totally different system's. Anyway, as far as the mids/highs and the power i have on tap, it is more about the channels than the power. But i will definitely have an endless amount of headroom. The subs will be slightly underpowered as far as total rated power handling but they will still get stupid busy.

  23. Temp mounted for 4 awg run lengths. Led on. Pos & neg runs on during mock up Grounding. I think i will get the sub in tomorrow to keep mocking up for wrie lengths & location.

  25. You've got tons of reserve. You're way good man! If you have any voltage issues, something else is the matter

  26. Love how you can still simply add the color to them. Mass produced but still have that customizable touch!

  27. A bank of caps isn’t gonna help you. You need more reserve, not quicker charge and discharge, caps don’t offer reserve, just quicker charge and discharge rate, which helps voltage. But if you don’t have the reserve to feed that hungry ass amp then that amp won’t eat and won’t put out what it’s suppose to. Point blank. Stop trying to find answers and spend hours reading what you find on Google search and watching videos when you were told the answer to save you from doing that needless searching. That’s crazy dude. And your voltage is probably lower in the rear because your rear battery isn’t g

  28. not really an OG but i was around for awhile a few years back. I miss all yall. I miss the forum bein litty titty. I've popped in and out here and there for the last few years... Haven't had a build for awhile. Have a stock Harley Davidson F150 and that sorta does it for me. Ive been putting all my time into trying to learn stunt riding on a Grom and a supermoto, but I do miss audio a bunch. on a side note I'm almost 25 lol, i remember lurking here when i was 16ish.

  29. ooooooooooooo weeeee! Those 2 pics are HOT! Those 12s look so good. If shit was mine i'd do half inverted. The baskets match so good but so do the cones for the build scheme. Its like either way you cant go wrong so why not do both LOL! Big dawg shit @meade916

  30. A square port creates better air flow. And do 20sq” of port area per cubic foot of the ported section if you are looking to get louder. And if you want better bandwidth, then do a smaller ratio like a 2:1 ratio. Tune it to 45hz. Port area and ratio can differ depending on build but tuning should always stay around 45hz. Tuning has nothing to do with bandwidth. Tuning is what it peaks at. The sealed section plays lower frequencies and the ported section plays higher frequencies. A larger ratio makes it louder but less bandwidth. A smaller ratio makes the enclosures bandwidth better but output i

  31. Haven't logged on in a while, but wasn't seeing any youtube updates... Steve, I hope you never get arthritis lol. All of that cutting, etc... my hands hurt thinking about it. Love watching your work. Absolutely beautiful.

  32. On Titan8 batteries there are built in 2/0 connections on the sides and small tabs on the sides so you can attach them together without having to use typical bus bars. Look up the Titan8 batteries if you dont know what I'm talking about. If you saw the broken calipers he accidently welded together recently thats how he did it... He forgot about the extra connections available and touched them. EDIT: He's actually using some of them to run the 2/0 wires. Each side of a Titan8 has 4 2/0 terminals. There is also another little tab you can use to bus them that he is not using. The T
