  1. Thank you for mentioning that, becuase that is not something I want happening and didn't really consider the bass outperforming the front stage, so I think what I'll do is sell it and buy a more powerfull full range amp and some higher wattage front stage components.
  2. So update, for anyone seing this and going through my idiotic spuel I got an amplifier it was gifted to me and I intend to use it, it's an older rockford fosgate punch 400×4, and I'm getting a new radio that has front, rear and sub outputs. Along with me getting that I'll be pairing the amp with some resilient sounds ES65C mids and EST-1 tweeters. Is this a good match?
  3. Any tips for that part? Cutting the interior automotive body? Or just go redneck with an angle grinder lol?
  4. One thing I would like to point out is that there may or may not be more room than that because I'll be cutting parts of the car off. In order to do the wall build.
  5. Yes but that's my minimum size going off of the box I made for the 3 12s, so I know that when I do the new box I will have MORE than that, tomorrow I'm going to remove some of the trim surrounding my trunk so that I can have more accurate measurements and I'll post those measurements along with the measurements for if i chose to do a whole wall behing the rear seats.
  6. Also I havnt done any measurements yet, I know that at least it will be 40×20x20 somewhere around there
  7. So I've been thinking about alternators, but why don't I use a good quality capacitor? Wouldn't it work the same in terms of providing volts?
  8. I'm also trying to figure out how I can get more output from an Alternator because I'm almost certain I can only have 1 on my car due to engine space. Or a way that I could add an alternator.
  9. Yeah and see I did have 3 12s in a ported box that I made but then I blew one of the 12s and there were some problems with the box and I just kinda wanted more, no needed more bass and bolts loose in my car lol. The problem with the 3 12s tho is it's a really awkward box that would slide around but if I ever tried to take it out of my car it would take 15 minutes to pull it out. So I know I want to do a box that is built into the car and whilst I don't necessarily want to do a rear seat delete I thought about removing the top part of the trunk in my car and doing a full wall build there and either upholdering the box so it's comfortable to be against or making my seats go forward so there's still a place for my friends and everything. I've already found a way to be able to see behind me using the WOLFBOX G840H 12" 2.5K Mirror Dash Cam with Full Touch Screen, Waterproof Backup Camera Rear View Mirror Camera So that I'm still able to use a rearview mirror is I do go that route. I completely agree that airspace and enclosure is a big thing towards making everything sound good.
  10. Yeah, I've been planing this for about a month or 2 now, I've looked at sound deadening, and more wire, I've currently got drawing of how I was going to make a center console, but that fwll through, and I also have picked out a new headliner that I'm going to do so you don't see the sound deadening. I'm still kinda looking at boxes and how I can do the box to spec so that there's hairtricks and busted glass whenever I go full tilt, as well as making it so I can keep using the cooled amp rack I made.
  11. Ok great! I'll look into some of those. I looked at the b2 audio amp "THE GREAT WHITE" and it seems very promising
  12. I wanna say boss, but it isn't that it only has a single rca output and that's it, I plan on getting a different one that has all of the rca outputs and touchscreen and whatnot.
  13. Just by looking I wanna say the Audio Control DQDX has everything I need but I'm not sure.
  14. Nothing, I like Audio Control I just don't know what type of DSP I need, I know I don't need one with the amp built in I just need the low, mid and high output but I don't know what has exactly what I'm looking for.
  15. My other reason for DS-18 is I want to stand out, if that makes sense, JerryAintLoud said it best in a video but basically, I wanna draw heads at a competition and not fall in line with all of other sundown-s and skar-s if that makes sense
  16. Oh I wouldn't say that I took it negative in any way, I just wanted to express how I am not bound by preference to a singular brand and am open to other options. I'm sorry if it seemed as though I took it offensively
  17. I wouldn't say that I'm a DS-18 fan, I just like putting everything in a cart and seeing the subtotal so I have a ballpark idea of what to save for. I've heard alot of good things about their Korean made amps and that's my main thing I like about them, I'm still fairly new to the audio world in general so I don't know every good brand out there, my other reasoning for picking DS-18 is price, but like I said I don't know about many other "SPL" brands so I don't know if there are other options pricewise.
  18. I'm working on doing the big 3, when I get the speakers I plan on getting the DS18 ALT300HD(5-7) Infinite 300HD Alternator With Module And Regulator. And more 2/0 (knuconcepts 1/0 kolossus-fleks-kable) for the electrical upgrades. I plan on going with an Audio control DSP, but I've yet to find one that peaks my interest, specs wise and output wise.
  19. So, in the front it would be 4 L+C+R and in the back L+R However now that I see what you're trying to say I understand and now I'm rethinking the total 6, I might not add the extra 2 anymore and just do my doors. Now that I know a Monoblock won't be good for mids I'm going to look for a different one that is more specific in terms of specs because the other amp is a bit overpowered. Thank you for informing me of this oversight! The only reason I was going to add the ones in the center was so there would be MORE of a surround sound feel when your sitting in the front
  20. I wanna thank every single person thar has helped infor me and given information it's amazing. Hopefully I'll be able to apply this info soon however, I'm waiting on the winning lotto ticket lol. If your wondering what all this information is going towards, here's a list of what I'm wanting to do: Door speakers :DS18 PRO-X6MSE 6.5" Sealed Back Mid-Range Loudspeaker 450 Watts 8-Ohm Custom console with speakers (same as the door speakers) total =6 wired down to 1.3ohms Door frame tweeters:DS18 PRO-TW7L 2.3" High Compression Neodymium Super Bullet Tweeter with RGB LED Lights 240 Watts 1" Titanium 4-Ohm Vc (4) Trunk wall sub box Subwoofers: G2 Dynamics Genesys Series 18" Subwoofer Dual 2 Ohm Mid amp: DS18 GFX-2.2K1 – Full-Range Class D 1-Channel Monoblock Amplifier – 2200 Watts RMS, 1-Ohm Tweeter amp: DS18 GFX-1.4K1 – Full-Range Class D 1-Channel Monoblock Amplifier – 1400 Watts RMS, 1-Ohm Subwoofer amp: SPL 1-Channel Monoblock Car Amplifier, Voltmeter, Clip Indicator 8000 Watts Rms 1-Ohm Made In Korea Oh and did I mention this is all for a 2012 kia forte ex?
  21. Oh if only I could, I don't think that they make amps that push what I'm going for in terms of subs, I'm planning on powering 2 G2 Dynamics Genesys Series 18" Subwoofer Dual 2 Ohm with the DS18 H-KO8 HOOLIGANSPL 1-Channel Monoblock Car Amplifier, Voltmeter, Clip Indicator 8000 Watts Rms 1-Ohm Made In Korea
