  1. You think a 250 and a extra batt will do the trick? So when running the 250, is it plug and play with stock? Does it no longer fluctuate voltage like the stock does? What do you recommend I do for wiring? And what did that 250 cost if you dont mind sharing?
  2. Nice. I'm battling voltage now on my truck. Not sure how I want to go about it. Running a DD m2a so a underrated 2k at .67 LOL. Voltage hog right now. I need to figure out an alternator solution. But I'm not sure how that works with the voltage reg clamp on the ground.
  3. Bigger battery, more capacity, more amp hours. CCA doesnt do you any good as your not starting your engine with them. Your using them for capacity
  4. If your looking for a battery at Sam's, this deep cycle g31 marine is what you want https://www.samsclub.com/p/duracell-agm-deep-cycle-marine-and-rv-battery-group-size-31dtmagm/prod3590232?xid=plp_product_1_11
  5. Interesting, never knew those existed. Still I would probably just kerf it. Never had a problem with strength. I always fill the cuts with wood glue before I bend it and it ends up pretty solid. But I havent done it one large sub builds. Just a single 10 or some speaker pods.
  6. Lol I sold my wife on 4 12s for her yukon xl. Been in there about 2 years now
  7. Yea they are both pvc. Both white too. But the 1 is thinner than the sch 40. Any chance you could do 2 6"? It is easier to source 6" locally. Check plumbing supply house and definitely try to find the long radius 90. It's a longer smoother bend. Also you can flare the thinner 6" yourself. Just worried about the long skinny slot port. They work, done them before, but they are terribly inefficient.
  8. So buy a big ass port and a 90. Pretty sure BAP uses SDR 35 pipe. Not sch 40. It's much cheaper. I think my long radius 6" sdr 35 90° was like $16 at a supply house. Not bad at all. And with a very oddball shape box, it was easier to use a aero than a slot in my scenario.
  9. So why not use an 8" port on the same face as the subs and 90 it inside the box?
  10. You can try the 6" but I think it's too small. It's a little small on my 3 8s on 2k ish... It's going in a yukon right? Make it full width 48-49.5" wide and use all 4 subs and the 8" port on the same baffle. Then use a 90 on the port to turn and travel the length of the box.
  11. Because I can crimp with a hydraulic crimper in a whopping 10 seconds. Why waste the time soldering it? I have had mixed results with my propane torch on 2/0. 4ga and smaller I dont have a problem soldering.
  12. So teir 1 I would say the soundqubed Teir 2 the F8L or the AA Teir 3 the B2 or the X8 The DC really should be in teir 2. As should the SA. I have never heard the SA8s but I'm just not a Sundown fanboy. I'm sure my F8Ls are on the same level or better as the SA8s. I think they are a in between the SA and the X. The ampere appear to be extremely similar to the F8L but I couldn't get any information out of them like physical specs. So I chose the F8Ls. I wouldn't mind trying the B2s but I'm not paying that much for 8s lol
  13. Yea I'm really not sure how people are getting 4 8s with proper air space and port area under these seats. I pretty much maxed every dimension I could and ended with 1.95 net which is slightly high for these 8s, but with the 6" port is a little low on port area for 3. Let alone 4. So I'm thinking the 4 8 boxes are really low on port area and bare minimum on airspace. I always prefer to go on the high end of recommended airspace as apposed to the minimum.
  14. Oh it bangs. Shocking for 8s. But now it's time to upgrade the alt and add a second battery. Having voltage problems at .67 so I have just been running it half volume or so. I built a seat lift for a buddy ext cab like 6" or so. Put 2 12s ported on 1600w and mine is atleast as loud. Its amazing how much these 8s love the lows.
