  1. Seems strange. What's the specs on the box? So you hooked your amp and sub up in another vehicle and it acted the same? What about when you had the hifonics? Have you tried hooking your sub up to someone else's amp in another vehicle? Different subs and amps in your vehicle?

    In need of help on subwoofers

    Yea I have never heard a HCCA setup I liked for everyday music. Burping sure. But not for music. Your box for the w7s was all wrong. Either way good luck with your new setup. Please give it proper port area this time

    In need of help on subwoofers

    Your seriously low on port area. That's your main problem. Up your port area and you'll get more output as well. And you'll have a better box for later when you try to upgrade subs. Also any w7 I have ever used has always sounded better in a larger than jl recommended box. Your 5 cubes is probably about right. But once you increase your port area, and then increase your port length to stay with your 32hz tune, you will likely be closer to 4.5 if not 4 cubes. I would try increasing your 2- 4" ports to 2-6" or 4-4" ports.
  4. Wow... that looks great! You might be expecting too much output from 4 8s sealed. Maybe try the current subs ported? Or bigger 8s and a bigger amp.

    That JBL 2 12 box is probably tuned really high as well. High 30s if not low 40s. That Geazy song is a higher bass note as well so that would explain part of that

    Need sub help

    Havent seen much for the k2xx platform when it comes to subs that fit. I refuse to use a premade box, also no shallow mounts for me. So a small seat lift and 2 big 8s ported is my game plan. Probably be fine with the sundown SD3 10s and the sub thump box though. Doubt it has enough airspace for 2 12s.

    DD Audio Hidef tuned subs 2000 series

    SQ build, you should look at the SI shallow mount 12. Pretty much any sub will have to be a shallow mount under these rear seats, I'm doing a 2" seat lift to fit 2 8s forward fire
  8. Well you wont be doing a 4th order... you'll be lucky to get them in a normal ported box. Most 18s want 6-7 cubes net each. So 12-14. You barely have that.

    6.5 preferences

    I wish I could find a way to fit HLCD in my doors. W I built a Eminence Beta 8CX with asd1001 compression driver in a sealed bullet pod for wakeboard tower speakers. A Lpad to tame the horn down a little and they were amazing. Havent heard anything like it again. I been running 250 rms to silver flute 8s and vifa ring rads passive and it's a pretty sweet combo. Will be doing them again in my new truck when the audio bug bites again.
  10. The only thing I dont like is the 3 ohms impedance. Hard to get good power at 3 ohms... It's a really good sub. Built a few boxes for it. Buddy has 1. We tried the JL spec ported box and it was good, but a little larger and tuned a little lower sounded much better. Cant remember the specs though. I know we tried a 25hz box and it was too bottom heavy. I think right at 30hz was about right.
  11. My MA Audio days were just a little late to see this thing. 04-06 I ran a bunch of MA Audio. That's awesome they have 1/2 ohm specs and 1 ohm bridged specs. Cant wait to see this on the dyno!
  12. Can you not use the amp crossover? If your looking for something more complex, I would change the radio as well
  13. Is this a little console between the bench and front console? Or are you putting some sort of buckets in the back? I vote down fire

    His radio probably has a rear/sub pre out. Look in the settings on the radio and change preout from sub, to rear. Then you will get a full range signal. Then go to the amp and set the crossovers appropriately.

    Need new box design for HCCA 15's

    Why are you making the box only 48" wide? If I recall you have like 56 to work with. I had 2 15s in my old sierra. 2000 ext cab. Did subs forward, port to the side. Worked good for me
