  1. The MD is the newer version but if you are looking to power a sub then go with their bass line
  2. Solder the - to the shield and+to the pin

    More port?

  4. I'm gonna be honest right now and say that I don't like sealed boxes. That being said I'm not sure what the sundown sa subs are rated. I do know that they can handle rated power and above as long as it's clean power. If you like rock and country music a sealed box will be a good idea. If you like bass music and rap you'll probably want to do a ported box.
  5. Lc2i depends on your hu. Is it factory integrated? Aftermarket? I'm assuming you'll be wiring that sub to 2 ohms so you'll want an amp that makes the subs rated power at 2 ohms. Factor in box rise and you'll want even more power.
  6. It can be even higher than that. Box rise can easily cause 4x the impedance. It will vary with the frequency being played from 1 ohm to 4 or more.
  7. That software is basing port area on the 16 to 17 sq in per cube formula. Triticums calculator uses different parameters.
  8. I run 6k to the sub and 1.2k to the mids and highs. I have a 240 amp alternator, group 31 under the hood and 2 smsagm220 in the back. I stay in the mid to upper 13s at full tilt. Fuse between the batteries at the rating of the wire and from the rear battery to the amp at the amps recommendation
  9. Useless, throw it away. All that thing is is another load on your alt. Supercaps are a different story but those 5 to 15 farad caps are garbage. Most aren't even anywhere near the capacitance that they say they are.
  10. Yes, everything you thought is correct. Wire to 1ohm and use 1 of each.
  11. 0 is just for finding out where your hu clips. You'll definitely notice a difference with either of these tracks.
