  1. Joe, you are a wizard! Thanks a ton! Is the reverse mount required for the pole vent to have proper breathing room?
  2. I can't find anything specific but from photos it looks like it's 1" maybe 1.5" I do see that mounting depth is 8.5" with a motor diameter of 8.6" Also, should I try to do sub and port back or sub back port up? I'm pretty handy with wood cuts so it doesn't matter about slot or round port, I'm easy
  3. Long time no see SMD fam! I've got a 2015 Mini cooper s that I'm currently running 2 DC M3 8s on a Taramps Bass 1200. backed up by a 180 amp alt and a 48ah bank of headways (overkill electrical is best electrical). I find myself wanting more boom. I've been looking at some decent budget stuff and have landed on a single 1500 rms Skar VxF 12 and a Skar Skv2 1500.1 to match with it. Being a Mini, space is at a premium, so I'm wondering if any box pros could help with a design for me? Total dimensions available are: 37" width 13.5" height 17.5" depth at bottom 12" depth at top So kind of a wedge design probably. I'd like to go ported if possible, tuned in the low to mid 30s to still be musical but handle rebassed stuff well too So what do you all think? is there any hope?
  4. @Antheny916 Do posts in the Subs/Enclosures sub not get posted to the recent topics list anymore?  or is it something wrong on my end?

      Thanks, you're a champ!

  5. when using a DD1 on a 4 channel amp you want to hook the positive lead to the positive of channel 1 and the negative to the negative terminal of channel 2, effectively bridging the 2 channels to the DD1, that way you won't have a disparity between them, itll allow you to set them both equally to your max clean volume. as far as the other equipment you're running (maestro, dsr1) I don't have any experience with those, hopefully someone who does can chime in
  6. i've found when setting at the amp it makes it easier to put the DD1 leads in the speaker outputs and actually tighten the output terminals down to hold the leads in place. just my $0.02 that frees up your hands to adjust gain and volume on the HU without losing your output
  7. try reversing the wires on one side of the box, Hook positive to positive and negative to negative on one side of the box, and positive to negative and negative to positive on the other side of the box. many times with a bandpass enclosure of this sort it will increase output by putting the woofers in a push-pull configuration. also be aware that the amplifier you are using is a home theater amplifier and is sending a full range signal to your woofer, not a properly crossed over bass only signal. for best results try to find a subwoofer amplifier (search for a plate style home theater subwoofer amplifier) to get the best out of your subs. also also, this enclosure is not going to be the best choice for a home theater setup, but if it makes you happy, have fun with it
  8. don't watch it too close, good ol forum jesus up there resurrected a 9 year old thread
  9. @Antheny916  figured you'd want a heads up that some chinese spammer hit the site
