  1. I got 2 subs and they need to be wired up together. 8g will be too big. 12 maybe..if not 14g. That should be ok i believe
  2. Thanks everyone for your responses. I too was thinking it was way too thin. Like there was maybe only 15 strands or so.. Perhaps it was used out of me. Anyways, Im going to swap it out for 12 to 14g and see what happens.
  3. My buddy used 18g pure copper wire to hook up to 2 jl 12w7s 1000rms each sub and connected it to a 2400rms amp running at 1.5 ohms. The wire was so thin but he assured me its ok and plus its pure copper so it is better than regular speaker wire So..the result was meh from the subs..trying to eliminate possible reasons why they didnt perform could be cuz they were in a sealed box or it could be because the 18g wire is too thin not enough strands so not enough wattage is being carried over.. Would like some opinions on this. Is the 18g wire def a no go and prob causing the lack of performance? Thanks
  4. k thanks ill add a divider. it will act as a brace and i need one so i guess its a good idea to use it
  5. thanks guys.. with my max dimensions im able to JUST perfectly give the subs what they need. They require 2.75 net after all displacements.. and i come up at 2.74 but this is WITHOUT a divider in the middle.. so if i were to add a divider in the middle , that would be another displacement but i dont know how to calculate that displacement.. maybe you can give me a rough estimate? my box is 32 wide x 13.5 high x 16.5 deep, 2 subs each .14 displacement. each sub needs 1.375 net entering in these dimensions into torres and using a double baffle i get 2.74net but i dont know how to calculate the divider displacement..
  6. as title states, i have 2 questions regarding sealed enclosures 1) I know that lining the enclosure with polyfil helps with sound and makes the subs think they are in a bigger enclosure than they really are BUT, if you have ample enough room to build an enclosure that gives the subs their optimal net space required for a sealed box, is the polyfil still necessary or does it serve no purpose at that point? i think i did read once somewhere that even if there is enough space in the box that polyfil should still be added as it helps with the sound in some way.. can someone elaborate on this? 2) when using 2 or more subs, i know using a divider for each sub will be safer because if one blows the other will be safe vs if they are in the shared space if one blows then the other will prob blow as well as the single sub would now be in a too big of airspace and will bottom out. But again, I did read somewhere that using NO divider has another benefit.. i forgot what it was.. can someone elaborate on this as well? Thanks
  7. You should have never posted in the first place loser. You just wasted your time for nothing. I guess u have no life. Well done. You didnt contribute shit except whine moan and make false assumptions. Now on the other hand, look at dibo. Thats a proper contribution. One post straight to the point. Simple. Straight forward. You could really learn a thing or two from him.
  8. Damn 11.8v and thats st 1ohm prob around 2500rms? Ya id prob dip down to low 12s in that case as i have a decent stock alt 110amp and 2 agms..i wish i could get a ho alt but very hard to find one for my car as no one has fabricated a new housing for it as the demand is not great enough to warrant it..thats the reason i have been told by all the top alt makers..
  9. Dude stfu u r so annoying all u r doing is coming here to complain and moan..jusy stop posting. Thats all you been doing since the beginning. I rather u just not post anything if its not contributing to answering my question. As for the video i did not watch the entire thjng i usually just watch the end where he has the paper with all results written down. I am busy so i dony have time to watch enture videos all the time. In this case i just watched the end part.
  10. Perfect. Thanks for the info dibo. Since i am running stock alt and 2 agms would u say the first xtr model that dynos a little lower would be a better choice since its a lower amp draw that my electrical can handle better than the dz line? Unless..they managed to make the dz line pull less current but do slightly bigger other words, unless the dz 2500 is more efficient than the 2500d
  11. I called orion yesterday and tech guy not available.then i came here. I got a chance at getting the older model at a good price but need to buy asap if i want that price. So before i do i want to make sure its worth it or not or if i should hold up and get the new dz modelv nstead.
  12. I do say so..u r either confusing me with soneone else ir u r purposely trying to make me look bad. Im not that guy. I made a first time mistake posting in wrong section and tried to delete post but couldnt so i reposted in correct section. First time doing this. So not sure what u keep getting tired from as if ive done this over and over. Next time, instead of wasting time , if u dont know the answer just dont contribute. Even till now u have done nothing to answer my question. Youve only accomplished making some dumbass assumptions..
  13. Huh? This is the first time i ACCIDENTLY POSTED IN THE WRONG SECTION thus making me repost in correct section so i have no idea what u keep getting tired from? Literally my 1st time doing this.
  14. Ive seen both. And none explain what the difference is between the 2 models in depth. Im not looking for dyno videos im looking for an explanation of what the diffetence is beteeen the old and new dz model. For example the new dz has less draw more efficient better components made in usa, etc etc And btw the dyno vid by orion is their response to other peoples dyno vids as they were not happy with the testing methods by others possibly bigdwiz..they were saying how others are manipulating things to get bigger numbers
