  1. I appreciate the review, I ordered a Ford Maverick awhile ago don’t expect it till spring but been looking for subs and it’s between DD 506 or Sundown SA6.5 , I’ve been a DD guy for life don’t care about cost . Not a lot of small subs in here, I also been looking at 2 8’s but my box size is .67 each side so ported needs to be small, been eyeing the Sundown U 8’s no specs yet or if possible Gatley 6.5’s or 8’s and even DD 1506 which would kill anything in the small sub category. Still need the truck to get real specs this is from Ford . Will post build log whenever I get the truck.
  2. I’m willing to bet that dealer got that from the Sundown yard sale , that’s the stuff they put on there or he tried to recone it himself. That is differently not Sundown quality been buying Sundown for over 12yrs and never had stuff like that. I’ve even bought yard sale subs that weren’t that bad of a glue job .
  3. I’m not bitching just Jelly , built my last custom door pods from scratch but I know you’ve done 100’s like me , If you got the equipment use it that’s the game love it make it 1 of 1 that’s what I do with all my cars. Made a custom grill on my wife’s SUV just to make it different and my cars always different.Hate to pull up to a red light and some D Bag has the same ride as me , always make changes to make sure that doesn’t happen. Great work like always Steve.
  4. I’ve always ran Alpine Type R mids , they can take a lot of power and sound great, that’s the only mids I’ve ran for about 12yrs now on 4 different builds . Maybe I’m to afraid to try something new but just know what to expect from these.
  5. My system got louder by ear after just replacing the factory ALT to a 320AMP ALT, Big difference .
  6. Your probably getting what you can out of those subs with your electrical those subs can handle 1k each on good electrical all day , your amp is ok not great but I’d try a second battery and big 3 first then maybe a better amp. I’ve been a Bass Aholic for 20yrs and all I see is your happy but want more been there that’s why your on this site love it . Build looks good Sundown subs love Sundown amps. Still need good electrical that’s step 1. I ran 3 SA 10’s on 1k each but had 320amp alternator and 6 batteries but was running at .6 ohms. Shit slammed.
  7. Good start nothing wrong with Skar the Evil line is great and the RP line makes good power . Great job.
  8. I used Raptor liner , it worked great box was under my rear seat in a truck , it kept it water proof . Us as many coats as you want it should spray pretty thick.
  9. Can’t find x6.5’s in stock anywhere , Don’t even know if they make them anymore no one has them but EBay
  10. Can also go with DD 1500 6.5 which is what I’ve been told the best 6.5 on the market.
  11. I got no room .65 cubes looking either Gatley Audio Relentless 6.5 which I love or 2 Sundown SA 6.5 subs . All would be ran off Skar RP1200.1 . Or I can get an SFB 1000 not a big deal but I have the Skar laying around . Both will be ported what will be louder and sound more like real bass.
  12. Did you check all connections, doesn’t make sense it won’t take a jump that has nothing to do with the ALT . But I’d recheck every connection and you need more then 1 battery with a 390 AMP ALT we all no that . Maybe the smaller pulley is putting shit into protect mode .
  13. I would choose DD subs over Alpine all day, I run DD right now and Alpine mids , Alpine makes great mids but have never seen them set records or break windshields like DD. Alpine is not bad but can’t compare to DD. Your also comparing Alpine top of the line Type R to DD lower 600 series.
  14. I use this stuff pretty happy with it . Started using it last year.
  15. We had a meeting at work and gonna have to start servicing Tesla vehicles now , not to happy about this but will try to charge accordingly .
  16. Very impressed with how it turned out, but why know SMD on that empty battery box from XS, that’s your design put your name on it. LOL , great work you deserve more credit for that design.
  17. I feel for you, me and my wife both agreed we would never get married again because it’s hard . I’m an asshole and she knows it but she’s the boss and can control me pretty good. I need a baby sitter. Your progress is slow but that’s what I like about your build my A D D wouldn’t allow me to take my time . Keep it up and stay positive.
  18. Not on here much but love seeing your updates, stay strong I feel for you , sometimes shit doesn’t work out it’s sad but I’ve told my wife both agreed we would never get married again, we both love each other but marriage is tuff people just stay true to themselves, it’s hard to change and if your loved one doesn’t see it or won’t change themselves it makes life hard. My wife is like a dude I can tell her anything and it’s like a guy responding that’s why I love her. I got lucky but she still doesn’t understand the car audio addiction but she deals with it.
  19. Not shitting on FI but would have went with Sundown, you’d be bumping and happy already.
  20. If I ever go out to dinner with my wife and protesters ruin our dinner I will go to jail . This shit is getting out of control.
  21. I understand U liked the sound from the the JBL , U heard it not me but for that price Of that sub U could buy 2 Sundown SA’s or one X Sub and U wouldn’t believe the difference in sound , it would shit on that JBL. Just trying to save U money and be happy , I’ve already made all those mistakes and wasted money.
  22. Just read this and never herd of that JBL sub but for 500 dollars and 700RMS fuck that , same price you could get a real sub , I wouldn’t waste my time.
  23. Happy 4th fellas, Thank You all Military stay safe but have a good time. I know I’m gonna.
  24. When people claim Toyota makes the best cars , The shit I work on.
