  1. Alright so I bought a 2 door blazer from a buddy of mine and plan to use it strictly for audio. Im gonna be taking my time with it to be sure everything is how I want it and how it should be. With that being said, money is not really an issue, however I'm not spending $1000 on a single sub or anything like that. But, whatever I decide to put in it, there will be plenty of electrical for the lower demands. I was thinking of doing a 4th with 6 15s but I'm not sure if that will fit. I also thought of doing 4 18s in a 4th...or possibly 4 15s in a 6th. Im in the process of taking the interior out so I have no idea how many cubes I have available. If anyone knows how much space I'd have, could you let me know? But more importantly, if anyone could give me some ideas on a good build setup, that would be helpful. Im looking to make it demo monster that crushes the lows and hurts you on the highs. Hair tricks would be a bonus too lol if anyone has any ideas please let me know. I'm gonna have a builder from Facebook design the box. I just got to get all the measurements and let him know what I plan on running. https://i.imgur.com/yUvH4Sk.jpg
  2. Alright guys, so I've upgrading my electrical in my truck- 290 amp singer alternator, xspower d6500, and big 3. All done in 1/0 wire. I've made a false floor in the back due to the floor being nowhere near level cause of the third row and all. I've got everything installed and hooked up and Oh My! What a difference! I had no idea upgrading just the electrical would make a difference like this. I'm still running the same amp (Rockville db15) but I'm gonna get another one soon. I'm also still running 4 15s (mmats procast, 600 watts per sub) but I'm planning on getting something different. These dont have much authority on the lows the way I want them to. I'm trying to get the most that I can while still keeping the back seats and having a no wall box design. I like the idea of having a really loud no wall setup while still having the backseats. With that being said, I was thinking of going with maybe 6 12s. I've already got a box designed for 6 skar evl 12s. But I'm really wanting the zvx's mainly cause they look alot more beefy. But since they require more airspace I only have enough space for 6 of those. Question is, would it be better to go with 6 zvx's or 6 (POSSIBLY 8 evls? I'm pretty sure I can fit 8 evls but I know for sure I can't fit 8 zvx's. Which would be the better setup? And also, sort of on a side note- if I do go with the evls, will I regret the decision? Will they go low and still have authority on the lows the way I want? I haven't heard neither the evls or the zvx's in person so that's why I'm asking here, hoping someone with experience can chime in.
  3. Decided I'm gonna order a 290 amp from Singer. Gonna order it next week when I get paid
  4. Good news guys, I just got a quote back from usalternators and they have two alternators available for my truck, both at a reasonable price. First one is a 285 amp (285 peak, 250 hot) and the other is a 410 amp (410 peak, 390 hot). Keeping in mind that this is going in my daily driver and I will be pushing 5000-6000 watts, with a d6500 under the hood and a few (3-4) xp3000s in the back (will be getting those later on tho) with 1/0 for power and ground, as well as big 3....will I be fine with the 285 amp?? Or should i get the 410 amp? I've read that for a daily driver, you want to go with a lower amperage alt since they make their power at lower rpms compared to higher amperage alts. If this is true, the 285 amp would be a better candidate, correct?
  5. I'm waiting for a response from Michael. What's the best way to get in touch with the others? Who is Johnathan? What company is he with?
  6. I'm sorry for the personal question and you don't have to answer, but about how much did he charge for yours? I submitted a quote earlier today, just waiting on his response
  7. Been looking around, and I've found a 250 amp and 370 amp from dcpowerinc.com. They are $600 and $900 respectively. Is that a reasonable price for those? Also found a 350 amp from gpcaraudio.com for $675. And a 220 amp for $350 from powerbastards. Anyone heard any good/bad things from these companies?
  8. Alright cool. Just submitted the quote, so hopefully they can help me out. But if worse comes to worst, what should I do if I can't find a good alternator? Risk getting one from Ebay? Keep the stock and just upgrade batteries?
  9. Do you know if they would have one for my truck? Or would I need to email him and find out?
  10. I haven't heard of them. Will definitely check them out and see what they have tho
  11. No I haven't. I haven't personally contacted anyone. I'm going by what I see on their websites. But I read somewhere that some alternators for certain vehicles aren't listed on the sites and that I may have to contact them personally to see if they do have one for my truck or not
  12. I understand lol my problem right now is finding a good alternator for my truck. I can't seem to find one anywhere
  13. I've never heard of them so I wouldn't know. There's another seller by the name of knalternatorparts. I've tried looking on mechmans site but couldn't find anything for my truck. Maybe I need to call or email them? If anyone knows of a reputable company that makes alternators for my truck, please let me know
