  1. Well, not much progress to show. I'm still without a system, but I got a new job and haven't been driving, so no big. Did decide to go with (2) new DC Level 2 12's to start. I know they're not the most powerful, but swithched to a DD Audio D5.1500 and the level 2's seem like a good fit. After the holidays I can get back at it. Got the bolts redone and sealed. While the bed was off, decided to spray some underliner under the bed. It's cheap Duplicolor stuff, but should be fine. Also picked up some new goodies!
  2. Great, thanks for the input. Yup, already have the (4) SA's, so I can save my money! Maybe I'll get a new HU instead, haha!
  3. I've been on this site for a while, and while I've noticed that the majority would say "go bigger", I have a dilema that I'm throwing out there. I'm currently in the process of updating my cut through, and decided to go from (3) Sundown SA 8's to (4). I'm currently running a Crescendo S1-v2 and on the (3) subs, it sounded great. However, I also recently picked up a DD Audio D5.1500 thinking I would use it for my whole system. The Crescendo is rated 1650w at 1 Ohm, and the DD is rated 1500w at 1 Ohm. Both amps are underpowered for the (4) SA 8's. So, I'm wondering if I should downgr
  4. Yup, I love it. Sounds great and it's super compact.
  5. I understand this topic is a little dated, not sure if you've purchased an amp yet, but the Crescendo S4 is a small amp and packs a decent punch. It's not overly expensive and you can mount it in a lot of places big amps wont go. I have one and love it.
  6. I agree that 12's will get louder and lower. But I must say that I love my 3 little 8's (soon to be 4 little 8's). In the right enclosure, they can get pretty low and are super punchy which is good for rock and metal, imo. However, if I had the space in my truck, I think I would've gone with 12's.
  7. The box will basically be the same, but instead of carpet, I'm going to sand and paint it. I'm also going to reinforce the mounting bolts on the back of the cab so it's a little more solid. I love the way it sounds, so I really don't want to change much. If I can, I might try and squeeze one more 8 in, but it'll be super tight, so I'll see what I can do. For now I can't do anything until I get the bags installed which will be at least another month or two from now. Just spent the day tearing the whole system out.
  8. Oh, and I know my voltage is crap! Those numbers are with the truck running : ( Next month going to order a new XS battery and Mechman alt. Should improve the voltage greatly!
  9. Finally a shot of it playing! However, ripping it out today...Moving the amps into the center console, and redoing the box. Also taking the truck in to get bagged, so I need to remove the system anyway!
  10. My bigest issue was not thinking and planning out the full project from start to finish. I have a tendency to just start full on something without thinking through the issues. The sleave/flange idea came to me after my second issue with the rubber boot. I was also reading through another post on here and someone mentioned that "one way or another, water always gets in". So I racked my brain and came up with the flange. But I didn't think about mounting the box to the cab, so instead of having the bolts welded directly to the flange before it was welded into the cab, I left it blank and ended u
  11. Thanks man! I started this build in 2007, and I'm hoping to get it done by the end of the year. Would love to see the progress on your Silverado. Don't be nervous, once you make that first cut, it's on, and it's adicting!
  12. That's it for now. I'll get video of the completed interior and of the system playing once I have a chance. As far as changes go, I'm going to build a new box, to the same specs, but cleaner. No carpet, 100% paint, with a trim ring. I'm also going to move the amps to the center consol. As they are now, they restrict my seats going all the way back. It makes the drive very uncomfortable, especially for the passenger. As far as the system goes, it sounds freakin great in my opinion. For my first ported box build, the sound is perfect for my musical taste. I used the CC-1 and DD-1 for
