  1. Ohhh & no rear speakers at all, just front stage
  2. Yeah, each door houses two 6.5's with a tweet in the sail. I've got the t1000-4 on just the mids & a t400-2 on the tweets As of now Ive got the 1000-4 bridged to 2ch and treating the two mids in each door as one channel.. wasn't sure if I should go ahead and separate them and get a little more tuning capability with each mid on its own channel
  3. Hey guys, so I've paid so much attention to my bottom end.. I've kinda settled for sub par mids/highs. I've got 2 JBL gti660's in each front door with the matching tweet in the sail. Now, I've got the option to give each mid it's own channel through the dsp & amp. Should I treat the two 6.5's in each door as a single speaker and bridge the amp orrr use all 4 channels thus giving each mid it's own option for time delay/tuning? They aren't separated from on another in the back of the door ...

    Arc Audio 4000SE

    Thanks guys, after reading up a whole lot, I think its a combo of things.. I've got no name batteries, they die within 2min. Going to the store today to grab some bunny's or Duracell. Maybe I'm getting false readings. Gonna try -7.5 and hopefully that'll fix my issues
  5. Hey guys I've got my amp running @ 1 ohm powering a nsv4 18. As of now I've got it set with a -10db tone with the dd1, but I'll smell coil 1/2 way through the song. Yes, it's a 4000+ watt amp.. but I highly doubt the sub is actually seeing anything over 3k & from what I've heard, the nsv4 can take that all day. Which leads me to the logical conclusion... I'm clipping still. The amp is equipped with a clipping LED on the side.. has anyone ever soldered on another LED and ran the wire to the dash.. as a real time clipping indicator? Thoughts if this would work??! Definitely don't want to smoke another expensive woofer (rip tc sounds lms ultra)
  6. Hey guys so I just picked up the dd1 and set my gains to distortion.. amp is an arc audio 4000se. I also had my dmm hooked up as well and got a reading of 72.8v before distortion. does this mean my amp puts out 5,299w at 1ohm?? Is this a cheap way to "dyno" my amp? I'm highly doubtful this amp makes that much power but HELL, I'll be happy if it does..
  7. I'm Interested with what you're gonna go with! I just picked up the same sub with a 4k amp, still building it though
  8. Epoxy Time! Poured it on the top and side pieces, mounted the PR's.. & threw in a few pics of my carbon fiber rocket car powered by a G40 engine that i finished up for some extra content!
  9. Not much done today, kept raining on and off here in NY.. Cut maybe 1/4 of the pieces i need for the front beauty panel, flush trimmed the box & routed abound the curved edge.. also got in some EL wire, i will be laying this around the plexi, around the curve (between top and front panel) and around the window for the amp once its made
  10. Thanks Steve! It's more of a budget stacked fab lol, was able to use all of the wood.. Just really wanted something different & ran with this, pretty happy with it so far though
  11. I don't think it's just cone area, it's loosely based on volume of the box.. 12-16in^2 per cubic ft of volume I think. Don't quote me. I've went past this and while at low volumes I got way more output, (pretty sure larger port makes a more efficient enclosure) but when cranked up, the sub would get sloppy & want to bottom out. I think you'll be just fine with going a little more than the 47.25 but I wouldn't go to 90 in music
  12. Nice sub! I was between that 18 or a suindown 18.. I think you're gonna be just fine, i've heard those subs can take a bit over rated power. Youre gonna link the amps though right?
  13. ahhh, so i had to cut the top! i really wish i was able to fit it in in one piece but no shot. Now theres 2 little 'wings' on the side, theyll eventually be leveled out and a nice coat of epoxy poured on top. I really dig the grain where the edge is routed too. also, waiting on a new flush trim bit to cut the top to match the curve of the single piece of wood, on the front
  14. Where'd you get this info? I too am wondering about ground runs up front vs using that extra wire to run more power... Everything I've read seems like an opinion, did you come across any test results?
