  1. Custom Dual alternator bracket?

    Thank you guys for input, I am unconfident i will be able to design or even try to make a alt bracket, but i will try. The only way to access the alt is under car Mechman said that i can send i my current 240 amp alt and have them convert it to 320 amp for $125(plus shipping there and back) but that is only 80 amp difference. I want to do it, but for one my car will be out of commission for a bit, and if i get dual alt bracket i will need to purchase a 320 amp alt with in turn is more $$$. I might upgrade alt, and during the time i am getting alt made, i will work on bracket+ saving up for second 320 amp alt, but unsure if this is wise choice Sorry my thought trail is unorganized, perks of being a teen haha
  2. Hello fellow Bassheads, my current system build is in progress, but am having trouble. I have (4) 15s, each one on a American Bass Ph4000MD. I also have a rockford fosgate 150x2 on the midshipmen's and highs. I am unable to reach full potential with them because my electrical is lacking. I have a Mechman 240A alt and a auto zone Durlast battery(group 24). In theory i should be drawing over 580 amps of power, but i suspect it to be less then, due to impedance rise. Still that is a big draw. I usually like to keep my system around 8/10 way up. and then full tilt on some songs or when demoing my questions are. Could someone fabricate dual alternator bracket for me (wich i would pay to have shipped to me) or is there any super high amp alternators out there? Or do i need to buy and build a massive battery bank. P.S i have a 2006 toyota sequoia and the engine bay is fairly tight, i believe it is possible to fit another alt right next to current one but will be tight.

    System has been on half power. Have 4/0 wiring in. Need to seal off top, add more layers to sides, need to move grounds to frame. And need to get dual alternator. My car doesn't flex very much, with is good for sq but doesn't help to show system over video. But check out my instagram at sequoia_bass for a short clip.

    Well it's been along time since i've updated yall, Sub wiring is mounted not plugged into amps yet. sealing off wall, Tonight i just bought the 4/0 power and ground wiring. I should be on half power within 2 weeks(full power once i get dul alternator setup)
  5. My unexperienced self, just played music to test it, i didn't think about the unconsistency that music has, i will retest using a few different tones, and then update you guys.

    You should do the wall! And i painted it black just cause it looked better then plain wood, still not sure on final colors, i'm thinking chalkboard paint in the front so people can leave a instsgram tag or sc or youtube tag or just sign their name, idk i thought it would be unique. and then have normal paint on the other sides.
  7. I'm sorry to get back to you guys so late, i tried measuring the voltages but all of them came under .2 volts, i tried flipping from ac to dc measurming and also tried flipping positive and negative on the rca just incase it was reversed, but all of it failed, but yet my mids and highs are just as loud when i plug it into my amp( gain a tad below halfway)
  8. I do have a DMM, i will check the rca outputs either tonight or tomorrow, and get back to you guys
  9. You think it's time to buy new headunit?
  10. I am having signal issues, I have 1 sub wired parelell with 1 amp, there is cancelation between the rca's somehow, when i plug red rca from headunit to amp it is louder then plugging both in, also white rca from headunit gives no signal, but will reduce volume when plugged int with white one. This is first time this has happened to me, i took out my old system and have been building new one and this happened. using same amps, same subs, same settings same grounds and same power wire and everything is same except box. also i tried other rca cables to make sure the ones i am using wernt just shorting out, also my mids and high amps both rca outputs work just fine for them, and when both plugged in it is louder. Does anyone have suggestions?

    Re did terminals, subs are wired perfect to terms, amps still having problems, found out i have signal issues, not sure if my rca's have broken during the process of getting box in, or my headunit is acting up, or if amps are acting up. I wired subs to house amp and they played perfectly, will update you guys on this issue. *P.S ordered 3rd amp! and will be ordering 4th and last one this weekend!

    Got 3 subs mounted, got amps mounted and port mounted. My wiring terminals are too close together and are shorting out. even though my actually wire terminals have heatshrink, i'm going to mount a peice of wood and redo terminals. might try to just loosen bolts and rearange wires, not sure yet. But the build is prgressing

    I am currently stuck on the project, i'm going to use slot port instead of aero because my local stores do not carry anything above 12 inch. And it's very expensive to have it shipped. I'm deciding on a 10incb wide x 24 inch high port. that gives me 240Sq port area. currently my box is 19.2 cubic feet with subs and braces only thing left is port. is it possible for me to have the port far enough into my box (leaving rest of port outside of box) to reduce my box to exactly 18 cubic feet? And if that works, andmy box is 18 cubic feet how long does my 10x24 inch port need to be to tune it to 32hz! i've tried different calculators but they all give me differen numbers so it would be much appreciated if someone helped me.
