  1. I absolute dislike the body style of the 14' single cabs....I would never buy one. BUT DAMN SON! Pony boy gon' changin' after seeing this

    crescendo bc2000 only doing 1000rms, why?

    I'm assuming the obvious. Everything is LITERALLY THE SAME before and after you sent and received it? I'd triple check your voltage if it's not "sound right" I had the same issue with my build. But i moved my box to a new house, put it back in and came to find out that the subwoofer wiring was loose touching each other inside the box. It was screwing up the ohm load.
  3. 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?

    3. deathcards


      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

  4. Yea the second loop is 97.9% cosmetic hahaha. If I had 3 gpu’s Then yea it’d be a weeee bit cooler separating them. I’ve been patiently waiting for the TM-1 to come back out so I can modifie that and I already got the vm-1. Think I’m going to place both of them on the cover plate I have that hides the drive cages.
  5. Thanks man! Much appreciated. Still stare at it for a solid 5 minutes before I go to bed, it's nice to get some positive input from others.
  6. I've come to the conclusion in the PC world that certain companys NEED to stay in their lane. Once they start stepping out there zone, they ruin their reputation. Bitspower has the most AMAZING fittings, the heaviest/sturdiest and reliable as hell. As for everything else? Yea not so much.I got the wrong ones from Amazon and had no issues. I try to stick with Amazon with most of the stuff or Newegg. Luckily I haven't had to call Bitspower. I never knew they made blocks, i'm such a huge EK nuthugger that i don't go anywhere near any blocks/radiators unless its from EK. Although, I wouldn't touch there fittings thats about it. Only thing I want to change about this build is switching reservoirs...Singularity Computers makes some gnarly looking ones. I almost tossed this case lol. I bought it 3 years ago thinking I would build on it but just sat forever. I'm so OCD about the inside of the case to a point where if i couldn't seperate my loops(GPU/CPU) I would literally just phoney out the 2nd reservoir. Luckily, after many holes drilled and a million dollars in fittings, it all worked out. You can plan a build all day long, but when you start bending those tubes half your ideas go out the window hahaha.
  7. 1 slim ekwb 480mm rad on the top, 1 thick ekwb radiator in the basement, 1 240mm in the basement as well and a 240 on the front of the case. Love the 900D SO MUCH SPACE! Glad I kept the 900D instead of going caselabs. All that extra money went to good use. I used a false floor to cover all the ugly stuff. I routed the basement soft not because hard line would be hard, but it allows me to move things around if needed and i won't have to drain the loop every time i need to remove the floor or maneuver wires underneath. Bypass fittings saved my ass on this build. allowed me to drill a hole in the sheetmetal, which made it possible for me to convert hardline to soft very easily
  8. SOOOO EXCITED MY BUILD IS FINALLY COMPLETE!!! I've been wanting to build a liquid computer for almost 10 years now...at age 13 I knew it's something that had to be done. I'm FINALLY financially stable and was able to complete this build that took over a month just building it after receiving all the parts. I never knew I was capable of doing a build like this so it definetly shined light on what i'm capable of doing when I really set my mind to something.

  9. AMAZING! can't get over how sexy these fuckers are.
  10. 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 :)

    What do ppl think of ct sound meso componets

    i love them so much that I got 4 sets of the 5.25. Solid build quality and when tuned right they sound so damn good for such a low price.

    This is absolutely amazing. Keep on keeping on man!

      Been waiting to see what that SCV7500 does for you.

  14. Bass has taken its first victim on my expedition...fuel tank strap snapped right in half HAHAHAAH. Time to break out the ol' miller dynasty
