  1. Okay, got the box built and tested. I'm loving these little crickets more and more every time I do something with them....
  2. Well I got the box built but we only had four of them in stock and Big E sold two of them on Saturday, lol. I have some more on the way though and the box is done so I should have video up on it by Wednesday. Here's the box for four...
  3. I don't know that I'd want to put subs in a door, unless it was an older vehicle with nothing much in there to get in the way because it'd take some work to stabilize that enclosure for sub bass, lol. But it would be pretty cool.
  4. These little fuckers beat! Gonna build a line for four of them tomorrow.
  5. The TW switch is tweeter level. 0db is flat or, full power to the tweeter. -3 & -6db are attenuated settings, in case the tweeter sounds too bright. Mid is the same for the midbass driver. It attenuates the midrange if your midbass doesn't sound right... which is pretty common in doors that aren't properly deadened and sealed. The unlabeled switch is the crossover slope. It changes how much attenuation there is outside the crossover frequency. Set at 12db means that the frequencies outside the crossover frequency will be attenuated 12db per octave. Likewise for 18. There is no "right" or "wrong" setting with the crossovers, there is only what sounds best and what keeps the speakers from breaking up or being over driven. Oh and, those are nice sounding components. You'll enjoy them.
  6. It doesn't have them yet but yes, it will have two squirrel cage fans when we install the second 4500. And thanks!
  7. Door panels. These were originally painted to match the interior (satin gray) but Jason decided he wanted to match the truck.. and be flashy. Changing from Gray to gloss white.... I'm not a big fan of Ford trucks but I have to say, this body style has some sexy ass curves and these door panels are probably my favorite set I've built to date. They were also the second most difficult to shape. To see the MOST difficult set I've done, look for Sam's sexy 1990 Chevy truck in an upcoming post.... Dat white doe! In phase three of this build I'll be transforming the entire interior to match these sexy mufuggers. Fiberglass dash, custom console... crazy! Teh bass amp rack pieces. Highs are now and will remain in the cab but we needed some real estate for the bass amps plus, they be happier when they close to the batteries so there are two amp racks in this truck. This and the one inside the truck are temporary and will be all fiberglassed and painted gloss in phase three... ECTOPLASM BABY!!! Also as a part of phase three we will be installing a body kit on the truck, painting it (probably adding some pearl), airbrushing some Ghostbusters shit on it, removing the engine and cleaning up/painting under the hood AND probably upgrading the bass amps to something new and nastier from Skar. I can't believe I didn't take any video of this thing but here's a short little teaser from last night. I'll put more up after Turkey Drag. Probably from Turkey Drag... if he doesn't get run off for loud music!
  8. Here's one we've been building off and on for over a year. Jason is a lot like me... he's an old, long haired basshead who was out of the game for a while but a mutual friend brought him by my shop one day and that all changed. After a demo in the Evil Goat he had to have big bass back in his life so he brought me a pile of old gear he had stashed away at home. Since then he's become a great friend and supporter of the shop as well as a really good customer. He's also a Ghostbusters fanboi (his nickname is Slimer), which will become apparent when you see this build coming together. This is stage two of ??? of this build so the equipment list I'm providing isn't all in the truck at this point but.... Pioneer DEH-80PRS 2 - Skar Audio SK-4500.1 bass amps 2 - Skar Audio SK-125.4 or maybe a couple of the new v2 amps. Currently has an Art Series A1200 on the mids 1 - Skar Audio SK-85.4 again, or one of the new amps on tweets. Currently an Art Series A204 6 - Skar Audio PAX-10 Neo mids... currently two 8s and four 6.5s 2 - Skar Audio VXT-1 neo bullet tweets... currently some db Drive bullets. 2 - Skar Audio SPX-1 1" dome tweets, not yet installed 4 - Skar Audio ZVX-18s in a ¼ wave t-line back glass blow through Lots of Buzzmat deadener Lots of SHCA 2/0, 1/0, 4g and speaker/primary wire. Epic Lighting RGB lighting kit 2 - HO Alternators (1-OG 300A and one locally built 250A) Custom Audio Anarchy alternator bracket 6 - Xpower (not XS) 110AH AGM batteries and one Diehard Gold AGM starting battery First, a few pics of the first build I did in the truck. This was straight outa 1995, lol. Four 15s in a sealed box that we later ported, two PPI A1200s and an A600 on the front stage. It sounded nice and all but it just wasn't enough. :-D Out with the old and.... Go big or go the fuck home! Mood lighting... More to come...
  9. Been busy and since most of my marketing happens on Facebook, I don't have much time to post to other forums. We also moved the shop and have been covered up with getting things organized and trying to maintain workflow. It's been a pain but we're in about 3 times the space we were before and we have a lot better retail exposure so it was worth it. I'll try to be more diligent about posting here in the future, lol.
  10. Because of how it was constructed. It's an 8' long port. I know what a tline is built a ton of them Go any pics of the line, I'm just not seeing 8 feet in that box, maybe I'm wrong... I don't have build pics of this particular box but if you build a lot of lines, surely you can visualize a snail shaped box. This is a very, very common shape for t-lines. Or at least, it is in the one's I build. Here's a similar box, but for 12s and in a Suburban. Exact same layout....
  11. Here's Rico's 2005 Hoe with an all Skar Audio setup. It ain't done yet but it's playing so, here she is....
