  1. Its definitely not a phasing issue. I have a 2015 chevy Silverado ltz and ran all my own speaker wire to avoid any in line crossovers and whatever else they add in the bose system. My system is completely independent and ive tried endless amounts of different configurations. I even placed these in my sisters civic with a sq build and they still sounded terrible. Any recommendations on a new set of speakers that aren't overpriced and insanely underwhelming? So who wants a b2 3 way and a reference 4 channel amp?
  2. Oh boy where do i start...I'm so insanely disappointed. I've wanted a b2 setup for so long and now i had the funds. So i spent some serious cash on a B2 Reference 4 channel amp{$1400} and a b2 Reference 3 way kit. Tweets, mids and woofer in the kit. I WAS SO EXCITED! I hooked everything up while cutting my wrists because i just spent over $2000 on a 4 channel amp and a 3 way kit. I dialed everything in, dd1, cc1 i did my proper placement with my tweets and all that jazz. Everything was wired up ready to be fired up. Turn the radio on and well...i was...i was so upset. I

  5. Just broke up with my girl...MORE MONEY FOR MY BUILD WOOOO BABY!

  6. Latest Crescendo Audio Bass Clef 4k....WOW. This amp is built like a brick shit house, heavy, allen key screws(THANK GOD), tiffany RCA's. Only thing i'd probably change is the orange cover plate, i'll end up painting it gloss green or something. 4 Sundown SA8 V.3(500w) These things are beefy and heavy for only being an 8" I know its overkill BUT...My old SA15 was handling double the power with no issues for over a year...SO i'm thinking of running 2ohms(2k RMS) to them until they break in and then switch over to 1 ohm. Aim at the mid-lower 3k range. They'll be in a Bob Gately B
  7. Shortly After i bought my truck, I bought my dream bike. a 2018 Husqvarna TE300. Seeing this in the bed of my truck literally made me cry in happiness, i've always wanted these two but never would think it was remotely possible. All the hard work, the 60-70 hours a week ever since i was 17(24 now) finally paid itself off.
  8. MY DREAM TRUCK!!!! 2015 Chevy Silverado LTZ @ 38k miles I just so happened to drive past this on my way home from work...Literally had everything I've always wanted in Chevy. The exterior color, interior color(Cocoa Dune or Tan seats Brown dash), sunroof, etc etc. Not bad for only being 24 and having NO co-signer and NO help from mommy or daddy or anyone like a lot of people around me. I've waited forever and got made fun of for driving beaters, but this was all worth it. Wait till the build log comes up.
  9. HELL YEA! I got the same one, but the Matte black version and it was the best purchase i've ever made. Sure as hell cleaned out and organized my garage. SO much room.
  10. Wonder if I should keep my 01’ Ford Expedition (187k) 4.6 THATS already all wired up OR buy a newer, lower mileage Tahoe ? regardless either one will get beat up from my future build.

      just a warning ford starts filtering out parts after 8 years unless the part is popular

      Whatya mean filtering out? As in getting rid of the extra shit that doesn’t get used a lot?

      right and its sucks cause some of this stuff shows up at my work i go to look up the part, and obsolete sometimes i can get it through other dealers (10% price increase) aftermarket is sometimes forgiving and has something that works and sometimes it doesn't have anything. :/ gotta say though i used to be big on chevy but after working here i must say v8 chevy or ford will last a long time with proper maintenance

  11. Smoke coming from box, it's not a coil smell but more just a normal rubber smell...none of my wires are hot and my cap is only a little bit warm. Any suggestions?

      Too much power is your cap is getting warm... SA's don't handle 1300 watts IMO, I'd tone it down a bit, but that could be me. I ran an SA as well on 1000 watts and it ran fine. Could depend on box size etc.

      The 1.3K's and all of the Twisted amps are a bit underrated. I want to say the 1.3k will do 1600ish watts rms @ 1ohm.

      SA's can take some serious power for being only a 2.5 inch coil, but typically as you go up in power and push them far beyond their rated rms you need to start shrinking box volume (as with any woofer).
      You can throw gobs of power at it in a box that is ideal to what they ask for, but prolonged periods of time your just going to be asking for issue.

      I had a pair of the old rev 1 SA 12s in a 4th order bandpass powered by a SAZ-4500 and they took it fine for the longest time until one day they had enough and the surrounds tore, coils where still good though.

      Granted even though the power is clean there will be a point that too much power is just too much, and an quality 3 inch coil is by far more forgiving than a 2.5 inch coil.

      thank you! little delayed on the reply...i know it's throwing 1.5k consistently at the subwoofer, I toned the gain down and kept certain songs out of my daily tunes. Haven't had an issue since :)
