  1. Was doing some testing and tweaking on my setup yesterday, metering it with a spl lab mini meter, plan to compete just for fun come December 13. NW2 class 30 second average. Best I'm able to maintain on MUSIC is a 147 for a first run. 146.8 on consecutive runs. This is with the vehicle fully sealed, meter on passenger side windshield. I'm dropping from 14.5 to 13.2. highest I hit was a 147.8 on a bass music track at 40hz. I'm running full tilt for 30 seconds straight each run with a constant bass line. My amp is still turned down but after a couple runs the subs are getting pretty
  2. Sorry for the late update, been fishing everyday i could, and had some ASE tests to study for and take... Just been busy. Anyways... I added deadener to the plastic cover, and surprisingly it made a huge difference in the back hatch rattling from the outside... But i think it made my roof flex even more LOL... And taking the headliner off is a chore i dont want to take on. I have plenty enough deadener for the roof.... But screw that. I looked up the process on this vehicle and it looks like a pain in my ass LOL. Loving this setup! It plays great on bass songs, but als
  3. First off... Sorry for the novel below... Started typing and didn't realize how much I was typing Yeah the rear speakers are not really helping anything at this point, the bass drowns them out... sucks a little because I did put aftermarket speakers in those locations when I did all the doors... But I'm not putting speakers anywhere except in the stock locations.... I really don't want to cut into anything to add them. Or pay an arm and a leg for custom door covers... I've worked pretty hard to keep this vehicle nice and want the inside to look stock as much as I can
  4. Perfect size for the grill!! I put a little deadener on the back hatch, Wasn't much.... Surprisingly there is not a lot of places i could put it. There are speakers on the back hatch door, plus the rear hatch window rolls down, which i didnt even think about... That alone prevents most of the metal area from being deadened as it wont allow enough room for the window in the down position... Hell im thinking about adding the deadener to the plastic cover... i could cover more area... much more.... Just dont know how well it works on the plastic like that.
  5. Of fishing or the system? There's not enough bandwidth to handle all of my fishing pictures lol... Here's a few from the last couple weeks.
  6. Hit them up on Facebook. I never got tracking until I asked them on Facebook... Then they gave it to me and I was able to call FedEx and ask them to hold the packages so I could come pick them up.
  7. I fish at least once, sometimes 3-4 times EVERY week nearly year round. I'm addicted. I have a kayak, a bass boat and a MicroSkiff. I go through phases of freshwater and saltwater... But really I fish both pretty regularly. Lately I been tearing up the redfish, snook, trout and sharks. And as it gets colder the redfish bite will keep getting better. Caught a big spanish mackerel a couple days ago too. Went out this evening and the motor wouldn't start. Changed the spark plugs and noticed the oil had just as much gas in it as oil. The motor is a 2016 four stroke.
  8. For me it would be fishing, I love fishing more than car audio... Hell i would go fishing in Xmas day if my wife and kids wouldn't kill me when I got back LOL No vids yet... I haven't ever posted a car audio video... I'll give it a try some time though. Haha, man a buddy of mine from Facebook told me that too... I had to create a Instagram account just to check it out. A few people took my pictures off one Facebook group and posted them on like 7 other Facebook groups and on instagram. I guess they like my setup lol
  9. LOL I can't take presents on credit... I'll be tapped out until my death
  10. LOL no worries bro. I would of just sat back and laughed And you were 100% right. It's a mandatory thing now. I'll have to wait until after Xmas though. My son's birthday is in a few days and then Thanksgiving and Xmas... Money will be tight..... Or maybe I'll ask the wife to get me a mids and highs amp for Xmas hmm.... That sounds like a good plan lol And thanks brother!
  11. Man... Where was this golden advice at 10 weeks ago... 1 dual 12 and 1 Sony xplode 10 would of been AWESOME I've upgraded my speakers before starting on the bass... Nothing fancy, Just with some Kenwood's, but I do really like how they sound... But now the bass is over powering them... I'm hoping just adding a mids/high amp will make them loud enough to hear the words over the bass lol
  12. Yeah, to be fair, the Sundown SA classics 12s had less cone area, were only rated at 750rms each, only a 3K watt amp, and no lithium, just a regular 60ah SLA battery... So even setting the the 5k amp to 2500 watts it's still likely doing just as much or more power with the increased cone area on subs rated at 1500 each and electrical upgrades to support it. Technically they should... Scratch that... THEY BETTER BE AN UPGRADE LOL. And I'm finally, truly, happy with this setup. I will keep this setup for a good long time unless I turn the amp up and the subs blow... The
  13. First the good..... I got them in and set the amp to about 2500 watts. I want to break them in for a bit on clean low power. They're already louder than the 2 Sundown 12s even just sharing 2500 watts. But what's really nice, and what really makes me happy is the sound quality, they sound so clean and deep. The sound also travels further and shakes my metal garage more too. I've only tested from 30-50 hz tones and it played all of those with ease. I don't really listen to anything that really plays under 30hz much, but I'll test some mid to high 20s in the d
  14. I'm all set now! Time to get them in the 4runner and start tuning.
  15. Good deal bro! According to the tracking, My subs may be here tomorrow. Did you finally get an email, or did you ask for it directly on Facebook?
  16. First things first.... What amp? And will the sub be dual 2 or dual 4 ohm? That listing is for a dual 2 ohm sub, which can not be wired to 2 ohm. Just wanting to make sure they match up before anything else. Also note that even if you got a dual 4 ohm sub and wired it to 2 ohms on a very efficient amp, after impedance rise the sub will never see a real 1000 watts RMS. As frequencies change impedance changes and the amp produces different amounts of power, same thing with voltage, as voltage drops the amount of power produced by the amp drops... So even with a 1000 rms amp, even
  17. Yup. I got that email Friday... Still no tracking number though. I sent an email asking for a tracking number over the weekend, but haven't received a reply yet.
  18. Ok thanks man, hopefully I get the tracking Monday then LOL Ah, that makes sense. I will have to set that up as well... Be useful for future deliveries.
  19. Did you get your tracking number at the same time as this email?
  20. I got the "your order has shipped" email but no tracking number...
  21. They definitely play by their own rules when designing motors. I'm torn... I am kind of glad I ordered the SSDs before the switch coming up, but kind of not at the same time... New subs mean more orders and they already are having a hard time keeping up.. plus they're still debating having a black Friday sale... So if I waited, it would've taken EVEN LONGER... Plus I like the look of the motor on the version I got... Triple+ stacks just make me happy... Not that I'll ever see that once in the box... So that's not really a deciding factor... But I love the
  22. Looking great. Loads of storage space now. Maybe it'll last you a few months before every shelf is full and you need more room again LOL... We need you to cut some subwoofer keychains, even incorporate a bottle opener in em, with those machines and sell them on the site!!
