  1. When you use use bolts or screws in wood, you want to use some super thin CA glue in the hole and as mush as the wood will take. Give it a minute or two to dry and use a drill or impact to run the screw or bolt in and out a few times with some gloves on as it will heat really quick and really hot, now what you have done is to make the wood as strong as metal with threads that act like they are nuts. EDIT: You do want to run the screw or bolt in the hole first to cut some threads.
  2. Get a nice set of passive components to start with, and over time get a dsp and amps to power them with and try active.
  3. Exact size or nothing. You do not want to risk your life to something that may not fit exactly, you want something that will fit exactly.
  4. Depends on the ohm load your are running, 4 ohm will get warm to hot, and start going lower and you will certainly get to really hot.
  5. Class A/B amps run hot. As long as it doesn't shut down it is normal, you can make a box to hold it with an opening on both ends and put a fan on one side to pull air through to cool it.

    Mosconi Amp - BS?

    Is the box ported or sealed? Can you post pics of the box? EDIT: Do you have another amp to try in place of the one in the car now? It helps to have known working equipment when trying eliminate possible problem areas.
  8. How exactly are they wired? Each sub wired in series and then in parallel? Or Each sub in parallel and wired in series? I always wire each sub in series and then parallel, so each sub sees power at the same time.
  9. Set the amp as you should and adjust the sub output on the H/U lower.

  11. http://www.reyaudio.com/large-e.html These are 2 ways used in studios to make the music we listen to, if you think a 5 way, 7 way or something more complex is better, then be my guest and learn the hard way. EDIT: I would run a set of 5 1/4" comps with some midbass drivers and leave it at that.
  12. The K.I.S.S. rule applies more than ever in complex audio systems, and there are reasons car manufacturers use oval speakers in a system to cover as broad a range as possible. I once thought about multiple drivers in a setup as your wanting to try, but quickly ran into issues with crossover points where you could have holes and peaks and driver issues themselves. A single driver is the xanadu people have sought to achieve for decades without success.
  13. Costs less to do it right the first time, just saying. EDIT:https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l1313.TR11.TRC2.A0.H0.Xplate+amplifier.TRS0&_nkw=plate+amplifier&_sacat=0
  14. They sound amazing compared to my 15 year old cans i have.
