  1. Yes I do. Sent a PM
  2. Back to the top with rock bottom pricing. DC sub was sold today Sold the RF P1000x5
  3. I have a Rockford Fosgate P300x2 that is like new and very little play time. It comes in the original box, paperwork and birth sheet. Works perfect. 80 bucks shipped to the lower 48
  4. Whew false alarm. Ended up being the rear seat belt was vibrating in its holder. Never ever has happened before but at least I didn't blow the sub.....
  5. I went out today and installed the 5 1/4 tymphany speakers in the kick. They have surprisingly good mid bass. I like them. Then I tried the 4" Faital pro on the dash just open air and they sound great up there. I need to build a temp enclosure for them for some testing.
  6. Iam still here. Lol I still havent made time to put the new speakers in the kicks yet. I will see if I can do it this weekend. Othere wise everything is working good.
  7. I wonder what the 4" and 3" faital pros would sound like wired together would sound like on the dash? Or just the 4" in place of the 3"? HHMMM might have to check it out. I guess it just depends on what the 5.25 midbass woofers sound like in the kick. The 4" might sound better on the dash just because I am lacking midbass from the front stage so I could play the 4" a bit lower than the 3's. I guess it just depends on how high the 4's can play. If they cant play high enough I could incorporate the tweets again and play them with the 4's. Well its fun to play so why the hell not.
  8. Ya I don't mind it because its against traffic both ways so set cruise control and sit back. I had her slamming today. The weather is awesome and window down volume on 45 and bass knob at 100%. Tracking says peerless 5.25s will be here Friday.
  9. Work has been busy and I have been driving 150 miles round trip to work so not a lot of time to do anything. I have been playing the system and learning what settings sound best.
  10. So in my quest to find the best sound for my truck I purchased a set of Peerless by Tymphany 830656 5-1/4" Paper Cone SDS Woofers from parts express to install in place of the 4" Faital pros in the kicks. I feel the system needs more bass or mid bass coming from the front. I don't think the 4" faital pros do a good enough job and would be more suited in an A pillar build and rather than in a kick panel. They are not expensive speakers so just more of a test to see if I can add to the sound quality of the front stage.
  11. No not yet. I know I need to do some tuning though. I have been playing with the crossover settings on the amp but I think I may need to do some playing with the EQ. I don't like the auto EQ feature on the 80prs so either do it my self or find a shop with an RTA. I think one problem with the auto EQ right now is that with the HU set on standard mode the highs are on the rear channel so It may be thinking the dash speakers are rear fill and not tuning them correctly. I think I will see what will happen if I switch back to Network mode and see if it will auto eq better that way. I will have to switch the RCA's around so the fronts are now on the rear channel of the amp (highs) and the rears will now be the mid bass channel so the 4 channels of the amp will play the kicks and doors together. Then I can pass the crossovers on the HU and still use the amplifier.
  12. No the tweeters don't sound good.... Unhooking them and will build pods for the Faital pro 3". Done and done.
  13. DC level 3 12" box design help Joe X

    Just an update, I built the box that Joe designed for me and it sounds real good. Here are some pics of the build. Thanks again Joe
