  1. Hi Guys Im trying to build my own underseat box for my 2020 F150 Supercrew. i will do the construction my self can someone help me some a basic shape and some exploded panel views of the enclusure I will mess around with the kerfing and adjustments my self I would like a center port for 2 x Skar Audio ZVX-8s on Taramp HD3000.1 Double front baffle 3/4 Inch Plywood Max dimensions Width - 53 Rear Height 8.5 Top Depth - 14 Bottom Depth 16.5 Appreciate the help
  2. I understand that much but my real question was why pick those frequencies and not pay any attention to the tuning of the box, or manufacture specs.
  3. Guys Can you help explain to me how cross over points work in a nutshell so I can understand where to set my freqencies. I dont want you to tell me where to set them just the theory behind where is best to set them based on the specs of the speakers/amps. Subwoofers Example : Taramp HD3000.1 2 x Skar Audio ZVX-8 manufacture says 40-500hz if my box is tuned to 36hz my question is is this speaker even capable of playing that low ? Should my Crossovers be set right at the 36hz, or should i be right on the 40hz or should i choose a value right below where my mids start and let the subs cover everything below that. For example at the 55Hz most ppl say Cross are 80hz Mids example Taramp DS800x4 Sundown 6.5 Components Manufacture says 55- 20khz Sundown 6.5 Coaxials manufacture says 60-20khz This is where I get confused. If I set my crossovers to the exact point the manufacture says would I not be having some overlap between the subs and mids ? So how it this ideally done Note my amplifier for Mids only has a Low, High or Full Pass Switch no dials to set. I will likely get an external crossover pending how you guys help me understand this.
  4. Not installed yet but found out that the crossover on this thing sucks nothing to fine tune just high , low or full . and even with that the highpass is from 90hz upwards. low is 80 below . full is 10 upward. so no way around it your subs will be playing way to much of the pass and your mids loosing out on the 60 to 80 frequencies .. an external crossover is in my near future. as to hooking it up i will try using the shared positive terminal and see how it goes.
  5. I dont know if this matters on the front doors im using the sundown 6.5 components that has its own crossover. On the rear doors I'm using the sundown 6.5 coaxials Can someone recommend an external crossover for under $200
  6. If i understand you guys I can use it on the bass amp and just add some processing for the stereo amp ? Recommendations?
  7. Hi Guys so we all know what these two are used for did I waste my money ? Plan on using Taramp HD3000.1 for my subs Taramp DS800X4 for my doors The DS800X4 only has a switch High, Low pass or Full Range. No crossover settings to fine tune. - CC1 not needed correct ? The HD3000.1 also only has Highpass 10hz to 80hz and a Low Pass of 80Hz to Full Confusing ?? Besides setting gains is the CC1 useful to me in any way ?

  9. can you just imagine how much cost savings this company made by taking away 2 screws jeez
  10. never seen this in all the amps ive had i just found it strange
  11. Can anyone else confirm is this normal ? from the manual i wanted to belive this think wants me to parallel the speakers
  12. a normal 4ch would have 4 sets of speaker terminals this one has 3. if you notice the second screw from the left is +/1 is this a shared connection or something ?
  13. Hi Guys I purchased this based on its size and rated power also price that got my attentions. 4ohm x 136rms ok great i can run 4 x 100rms speakers 1 to each door simple. i got the amp and opened the box now im looking at 3 pairs of speaker terminals and a very confusing spanish manual. anyone understand how this really works it i look at it seems like its a 4ohm bridge mode 2 channels x 400RMS it makes no sense to me why does it only have 3 sets of speaker terminals and 1 of them is a +/- ??? is this the wrong amp for me. I plan on using it in my F150 2020 supercrew just to run a set of components up front and regular midrange in the rear. Do I have to run them in parallel or something but that would give my speakers down to 2ohm but the bridged mode is only 4 im very confused. Technical Specs • Number of Channels: 4 • Max Output Power: @ 12,6 VDC - 1 OHM: 800W RMS (4 x 200W RMS) @ 12,6 VDC - 2 OHMS: 500W RMS (4 x 125W RMS) @ 12,6 VDC - 4 OHMS: 240W RMS (4 x 60W RMS) • Signal Noise/Ratio: >96dB • Frequency Response: 10Hz a 25KHz • Input Impedance: 10K OHM • Minimum Supply Voltage: 9 VDC • Maximum Supply Voltage: 16 VDC • Idle Consumption: 1.0A • Maximum Musical Consumption: @ 12,6 VDC: 38A • Sinusoidal Signal Maximum Consumption: (1KHz) 12,6VDC: 76A • Dimensions (WxHxD): 184 x 54 x 190mm • Weight: 1.40Kg
  14. Hi Guys its been a while I had my 2018 F150 supercrew fitted with Dual SKar ZVX-8s box designed by mark from car audio fab. seat was lifted 2.5 inches to get it to fit. Ported box on Hifonics BRX 2000.1D was not happy at all my door speakers were louder, Eminence 8inch and 6.5 Inch betas . So new truck new drawing board 2020 supercrew. I can re lift the seat if needed or I can keep it stock. Open to suggestions should I try a sealed box for the Skar ZVX or add 2 more with more power ? should I just keep the existing box and just add more power im really puzzled for such beefy subs why they were so quiet. Should i go with multiple 6.5 inch subs. I cannot afford a gately box but something built similarly that would get me close to my previous 4 cubed ported box that housed dual 12 inch RE audio re coned subs would be ideal ported or sealed.
