  1. I am still dreaming of a little plug doo dad like this for my 2007 explorer ..... damn shit acts the same way and when It charges at 13.5 its killing my resting voltages.... 12.1vdc vs the day i left a float charger on it and it rested at 13.2vdc
  2. looks like the cooling fins are still clear so it should still perform as well as it looks..... powder coating an inter-cooler can have some bad results but it looks like your guy knows his sh1t...... the lexus is going to be jealous in a straight line ..... I can always count on you posting things I can only dream about doing!!!!!!!
  3. you know what you have to do then.... set it all up and make a youtube video and be the 1st! I know ill be waiting in line to see what the lvl 1's can do
  4. the bigger one looks like a level 2 M1 it has the newer cap from the recone but no vent holes in the motor and no molded DC audio on the rubber dust boot.... and level 3's never got a rubber dust boot.... I asked rusty about that in another thread because it states in the description on the lvl3 that is has the boot but mine does not...if you remove the boot you should see a double stacked magnet and the level 3 and up has a triple stacked magnet
  5. depending on how mechman sets up the alt they usually install a smaller pulley hence why they say a new belt... they cant say what size you will need because many different cars/trucks use the same alt... your mechanic will see this when he installs this alt and the belt tensioner is either at its outer limits or belt just slips like a bitch when the field is activated.... stock alts consume around 7hp these HO alts take more on the parasitic loss than a stocker you can run a HO alt on everything stock nothing is going to happen does not matter if its drawing on a 1300rms system or 5000rms the alt will not kill anything unless the voltage is too high and steve even did a video bumping up the charge to 15.2 and nothing bad happened.... you are just future proofing the electrical so when you go crazy one day you have it on tap
  6. in my experience and hearing capability's flac audio is pretty much wasted with out all the fancy gear and a highly trained ear.... my HU plays flac and everyone including my self when exposed to a blind test cant tell the difference and a couple friends think the flac audio sounded worse.... ive even done flac vs 128kb audio of the same song and sound quality was a non issue..... do full digital with a processor, correct staging and some $500 comp set fully active and you might have something worthy of lossless
  7. I cant stand knock tests....all they do is show you how anything that is on the shelf at lowes could do if applied to thin metal its more about how it sticks and how hard it is to remove so it does not fall off on its own I tried dynamat pro back in the late 90's and I still have 80% of the roll because It never stuck to anything, most over priced garbage I have ever bought I just did my front doors with a famous youtube version of sound deadening and the difference is amazing and Im sure your roofs is amazing also
  8. cnc and 3d printer.... lets see a build log called "pitching machine" that would be epic!
  9. if they make a matching 4 ch and 2 ch I would dance in the streets
  10. 2 places I would like to take a tour if i am ever in that area is DC and SHCA..... love both brands and have nothing but great experiences from both
  11. if only they made a matching 4 channel now that would be a formula for total epicness! If I ever had a problem in the future I would totally replace my 2 hifonics amps for these!
  12. I didnt get any spec sheets when I ordered my level 3 AR 12" off droppinhz.... pretty sure it was drop shipped directly from DC and they make you look that up on the website... I love how there is almost no cone!
  13. http://www.caraudiobargain.com/new-cab-1600-1-amplifier/ looks like they did this so they could post dyno numbers and have someone trustworthy and reputable have somewhat matching dyno numbers... now I just need to know what kind of lifespan this amp has.... I love these specs on their site! sounds like a perfect amp for cheap burps! NOT RECOMMENDED OHMS: .8 Ohm 3051W @ 14.2v .5 Ohm 4236W @ 14.0v
  14. ford has been using BCI65's for a long time.... they like expensive large batterys!
  15. my first box was 1.25net.... then built another box at 1.75net.... much more happy with the output..... and rusty commented on my post and commented largest he recommends is 1.75 http://www.stevemeadedesigns.com/board/topic/199526-ported-box-volume-lvl3-m2-12/ you can read this post in the link.... the first set of pics are of the 1.25 box then last pics are my current 1.75 box.... both at 33hz
  16. if its a 4th order bandpass and not a conventional ported box that you are asking about...they are both in the same grouping... . only a few people on here can help you in the way you really want... its a real hit or miss kind of box.... you either hit it right and it sounds great and musical or you hit it wrong and it plays 1 note and subs cook.... from what I under stand you want the sealed chamber at the recommended sealed size and the ported side no less than 2x bigger than the sealed and tuned at the resonant frequency of the sealed side.... most people on here throw out ratios but some talk about 3:1 with good results with a high port tune in the 50's.... If I remember correctly in a 4th the sealed side makes the low end bass not the ported side
  17. I would not upgrade the rears to the speakers you mentioned and use that part of the budget for the pro tweeters.... what is currently in the rears and would moving the coax from the front still be an upgrade for the rears..... rear stage does nothing for your sound stage
  18. it said 1/2 ohm.... where did you read .05 ohm...2000.05d does not mean its .05 ohm if they called it 2000.5d then people would think its a 5 ch amp lol .... my guess is 9507
  19. I had a 79 cj7 for years.... and when I started driving it when I was 16 I kept trying to do a nice system in it and by the time I was 18 I moved the system to another truck and only used the jeep for off road and summer time fun.... with the hardtop off you had no sound... and I had the 304 with headers and cherrybombs dumping right infront of the back tire so you could not hear much anyway.... I could not put speakers in the doors because I had those off alot.... 2 6x9's in rear on the side humps and 2 4x6's on the center hump... talk about no sound stage...all my amps were under every seat in this thing and my sub stage was always garbage with the very small amount of space between the rear seat and tail gate.... share some pics and I sure hope you get it all worked out and happy
  20. maybe the OP was trying to make a sweet unboxing video and it went bad.... i know a guy that bought a 15" XL and one coil reads 2 ohm and the other read 4 ohm right out of the box the very first thing I did when my lvl 3 showed up was open box and grab my DMM both coils read 2 ohm... I always tell people to test the coils first because if you install it and then later find out lots of companys will say you burnt them.... I still think the story is a little fishy because he never sent it back after talking to DC and the site he bought it from..... I would think they test everything before DC sends it out but I could be wrong
