  1. Is anyone else getting all their SMD notifications sent to the Spam folder; I've been wondering why I stopped getting notices on posts I'm subscribed to. They are getting marked as phishing spam.
  2. I thought I found this info before, but cant now. What are the differences in the spider options?
  3. I traded that car in this week. Picked up a used Volvo V50. I will be running a single DC L2 15 in this car. Doing a stealth install.
  4. Oh man. I hit a snag. Starting to lean back to my old habits.. Been really thinking of 2 L3 15's sealed. Running 1 Polk Audi PA D1000.1 to each. Only problem is how to get past the electrical issues. There are no aftermarket alt's for the 2.2L motor in my Malibu. I do have a couple of big ass batteries from the UPS at work (CD Technologies, forgot model # at this time). Who needs a trunk when you can add a roof rack..
  5. Yeah.. L2 me thinks also. Gonna make some cardboard templates to see exactly what I can do. Either way, I'll be happy. I ran my 2 L3 12's in 2ft3 total and it was loud. Hope by this weekend I can start building. Pretty much after that 4-8 weeks I can't do jack shit. Foot surgery. Kinda sucks.
  6. I couldn't say what the future holds for a install. I change installs quite a bit. Seems I never finish one cause I end up changing stuff. Playing around on paper, it does seem like I can squeeze out just over 1.75ft3, so I could run ported. The Level2 shows 1.25ft3 for ported. Listening to mainly rap/techno, what should I aim for on tuning the port?
  7. So, I sold my Sundown/DC stuff while back. Been running HU on stock speakers since. I'm planning a new system using a Polk Audio 5 channel amp. Looking at single sub. I was looking a getting either a L2 or L3 12 for this. Sub channel onthe amp will be pushing 500 watts. Will it matter much which sub I get for this. I will be running sealed, ~1-1.25ft3 (maybe a little more if I get creative with my box design). Any input will be helpful on this.
  8. I think I'll get to measuring this weekend. Since I'm no longer working 6 days a week, I got time to do things.
  9. I'm in Austin. We got a quite a few shops here. This was one of the main shops here. I'll call around. But building it myself will at least allow me to make a box fit how I want. I really want to use up all avail space I can to save trunk space. So.. Guess I'll do that next month.
  10. Well, for the $500 I was quoted for a box today.. I'll give it a try and build it myself.
  11. I'm sorry.. What were you saying? Your avatar distracted me.. Thanks for the info. Going to swing by the shop today and see what they can do for me. I just don't trust myself to build a ported box.
  12. So, I'm done with my sealed box. Running 2 Level 3 12's and a SA 1200d. I listen to a lot of rap and rock along with some techno. Decided I'd have a shop build the box for me due to I just want to be lazy. What should I be shooting here for as for port and ft3..
  13. Yeah, I'm just pricing out new fuse blocks to replace what I got. I'm just going to replace my 2 way disto with single ANL holders. I'm trying to decide if I want to dedicate my 1/0 run for 2nd battery then direct to the sub amp and have another run of 4g that runs my front stage amp. This overkill or pointless?
