  1. Its been a while since I started working on this. I've been working a physics project for a while now (making a 2D Ruben's Tube, I get to play with fire and sound at the same time ) but since we ran out of flux core wire for the welder today I got a little work done on this build. I was able to get the amp rack almost done, all I need to do after this is install the cooling fans for the amps. And put in a couple notches to run in the wires and RCAs. Q4-120 and Q1-1200 sitting in the amp rack Sub Boxes sitting on top of the rack. Just how they will be installed in the Jeep when I'm finished. This is with the everything set in the Jeep. Showing how the final project will look. Now once everything is complete there will actually be drawers behind the subs, and it will look like all one big unit.
  2. Hey guys, I just recently got my Jeep Cherokee XJ that I will be using as a daily/off road rig. I will soon be upgrading it to a 4.5" lift on 32s, also should hopefully be getting around to making the roof rack. But with having an off roading rig I have to downgrade my system from a soundqubed 18" to some 10's. I wanted to run run a single Fi Q-12, but I had these two laying around so I decided to just use these subs instead. I will be running: x2 Rockford Fosgate P3D4-10 x1 Soundqubed Q1-1200 x1 Soundqubed Q4-120 x1 Pioneer DEH-80PRS Headunit x4 Some MTX Coaxial speakers that were in the car when I bought it (I will eventually be replacing those with some kind of components) I have all the pieces cut out here. Because of the way I am putting these in my car I decided to make two separate boxes and later make it look like one through the use of beauty panels. If I had designed it to be one single box it would have deprecated sound quality or I would have had to changed the layout inside my car. Neither of which I wanted to do. Test fitting the box together. Speaker hole cut out. Gluing the box together. I did not use NEARLY enough clamps. I let the glue set a little then replaced the clamps with some screws and this box is pretty much finished. The second box is completely identical to this one. Playing around with some trim panel ideas. I liked this one a lot. It has a fogged plexiglass insert that can be LED it. More to come!
  3. eh...may be easier to go active. Maybe a external electronic crossover. Look at the precision power 3-way component set a lot of people seem to like it. Smaller footprint too. Hmm, okay... I'll look into that, thanks!
  4. Hey thanks for all the responses. Sorry it took me so long to get back on here. I have a 97 Jeep Cherokee that I am going to be turning into a part time off road rig so thats why i wanted to go with a smaller foot print then a SPL build would have. I am currently thinking about running a 1-1/8" tweet, 6" mid, and 8" midbass in the doors on a three way passive crossover. Then running a ten as my sub
  5. Hey guys. So I'm coming from more of the SPL world, but I am now stepping down from that and wanting to go more toward sound quality in my new car. Now I don't want anything insane, but i want something that does sound really good. So here are my questions. Would you guys suggest a signal processor like the 3sixty? Will a well design ported box be good, or should i go with sealed? And lastly do I need to run rear speakers in a SQ build? Thank you.
  6. If your going to SQ multiple areo ports will be the way to go, because this will allow you to lower the port diameter. You always want to go with as small of a port as possible when going with sound quality, yet of course you want to still avoid port noise
  7. Oh that's interesting... I have a pair of coax just laying around, I could throw those in and see what happens?
  8. Hey guys, So my friend went to Best Buy to install a new headunit and they fucked up big time. It has a Bose system with OnStar. The system sounds fine when the head unit is really low, but as soon as you turn it up it starts to sound terrible. Now I've never heard it, but from what they are saying it sounds like clipping almost. It has zero depth to the music, there is no low end, and it has a constant static in the background Have any of you ever experienced this?

  10. Hey guys, I haven't been on here in a while. But anyway. I decided I'm going to finally bit the bullet and stop messing around in my tiny ass corolla and get a dedicated comp car. Right now I'm looking at a 1988 4runner. Just to start out with I want to run two 18in Fi BL SPL subs on a Q1-2200. I don't know what I'm doing for the mids and highs yet. What do you guys think?
  11. It will just sound less then perfect really. You won't end up damaging the sub unless you do something stupid. But the best box in the world can't protect against stupidity.
  12. Kids in my town that drive around blasting there shitty $200 system giving car audio a bad name. And I'm here with a good system and I am purposely turning down the volume through the down town.
