  1. Hi again! So was in middle of a father son f150 build when I decided let’s go all out enter in some shows have fun times see some bad a.. rides but most of all as much time with my son as possible! Shit might get lucky and win something at one! original build was four sundownaudio sa 8v3 in a ported under seat enclosure! It wasn’t getting what was possible from these subs anyway! So change of plans! 6th order band pass blow through with 6 8” sundowns tested with an audiopipe 3000d.1 amp in the market for a 8 k sundown just need to sell others first! Let me tell you these little subs don’t know there little! Not one person yet has said what you got in there 6 8s it always 4 15s or 412s box is 1to 1 tuned at 36hz and 61 hrz it’s gonna have 6 separate ported chambers when complete! Testing some tunning with the 3rd set gonna try and tune at 25hz and 50hz and see if I get an even broader sound coverage. also took out all the led lighting to rewire all to a new epicenter which is a full sized amp drawer located under rear seat! I’ve got another two weeks east doing it with son after school and what not and adding some pretty cool details which to the best of my knowledge has not been seen in any other build yet! Everything will be wired in rack in such a way that I will be showcasing the wiring! Here’s a couple pics of box. Every wall of box including vents perimeter walls lid everything is double 3\4 “ thick mdf so in turn all walls are 1 1/2” thick. got some plans for a city scape mural with fiber optic lights lighting up the windows in the box! Visable through acrylic sundown audio logo on the tailgate or rear of box
  2. Starlight ceiling painted sheet of plexiglass with night sky mural 1500 fiber optic leds interior trim outline in led lighted ford signs ground effects lighting and grill led all multicolor and multifunction  Pic of subs was when I first started build and planned on only 3 but now have four all under rear seat center still comes out for ports and will house a 14” screen with ps4 installed IMG_0823.MOV IMG_0825.MOV
  3. So I decided to build a truck for my son.... I picked up a 2006 Ford F-150 super crew . Painted all black black 20” rims on 35’s. I did ground effect lighting in the grill and interior seams as well and also did the rolls Royce star ceiling with some added effects! Replaced all lights with Super bright white leds lighted ford emblems. I went all out he’s pulling awesome grades and is working his ass off and deserves every bit of it! I love sound and power so when it came down to the motor build and audio system I was like a kid in a candy store! system includes 4 [email protected]/2” kicker components pushed by a kicker forgot model 4 sundown sa8 v3 in a under rear seat box that also has a center console that comes out from seat with two ports one on either side box is tunned to 35 hz did the center console add on to gain enough airspace to tune to manufacturers recommended specs excluding sq are of ports. pushing the subs is a 1800.1d kicker amp. 10farad digital capacitor 2 separate single 1 farad capacitors and two yellow top optima batteries! now to my issue.... I wired all the subs in parallel which brought it down to a 1/4 ohm load which the amp is stable for! When wired this way I started to smell the first sub in the lines voice coil heating up! Why? So not able to find any info on the subs if they can be wired to 1/4 ohm I rewired the subs configuration to a 1 ohm load series/parallel. Now I can get through maybe 3 songs with out the amp heating and clipping amp is rated at 1875rms subs 500 each totaling 2000 rms not a drastic difference is the kicker amp really not enough to push these bad boys or what? Lastly if my assumption is right and the amp dosnt have enough juice how will another kicker amp same line but 1200.1 d wired to one sub and the other three subs to the 1800.1 mesh together? Any insights thoughts suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
