  1. You won't find it Kenn, that will be a one off fabrication you're going to need someone to build for you. No companies like DC or Mechman are going to make a bracket. You'd also have to remove some engine accessory to run a triple.
  2. Awesome grave dig on a 5+ year old thread. Resurrection at its finest!
  3. How are you doing your flush trim inner ring? I'm referring to the circle that the speaker sits flush in, not the actual cutout for the speaker. The outer diameter of the mid, that's the ring.
  4. I'll tell you this, the larger of the safe side you can go, the easier it will be to design an enclosure with proper port area. The smaller the enclosure, the longer the port must be to get the desired tune and proper port area typically. Don't get up to 1 cube though, they don't like THAT much from what I've personally heard. .6-.75 per sub is plenty.
  5. I'm curious why there was suspicion in the first place to go through all this work. Most of us would have installed it, and THEN if it exhibited problems, uninstalled to investigate.
  6. You can try Rage Gold or Rage Xtreme, both are made by Evercoat. They are usually $60+ per gallon. It's not even a gallon either, it's like .88 gallons. There are other companies that sell gold fillers, they just sand much easier. U-Pol Gold is Luke $22 per gallon here(again it's actually like .88 gallons), and it's a beautiful filler. It won't build up into big shapes because it's thin and runny and self-levels. The Z grip and normal Evercoat Lite is a great everyday filler. I'd consider a mixing board that isn't cardboard as well. I use a solid flat piece of square aluminum and clean it right as the filler sets up. I've had that same mixing board for 20 years.
  7. Part of the problem is the crappy 3M Bondo. You'd spend less going to an auto body supply shop and buying an Evercoat Z grip filler or U-Pol Gold or something similar. If you could find someone to show you how they mix filler and apply it, I think it would help your future projects greatly.
  8. I have a quick question about your body filler technique. Are you cleaning your applicator/spreader before starting to apply the filler? It looks like your either using a jagged edge to apply the filler, OR you're still spreading after it's starting to set up. Smooth, deliberate strokes is all you need to apply that stuff. Have you ever seen someone that does bodywork apply it in person? I love the build btw, I can't believe this is the first time I've seen it.
  9. Great thread Tony. I would like to have had time-lapsed pics of Juan as well for future reference.
  10. Oh Steve, I'm definitely not talking down on the tool. I've been happy with the results I've seen and there are a few local guys that have them and we clamp results often. I have not seen it ever give wonky results. I've only seen it break hearts with how inefficient some dude's boxes are. My response, if taken negatively or sarcastic at all, was aimed at FasFocus and his response, not the tool.
  11. But would the Level 6s get just as loud on a single 7.5K at half ohm?
  12. I'd be interested in a D'Amore explanation on this. A $400 tool not doing what it was intended to do should be a concern.
  13. If my intuition is correct, he likely sent twice the RMS to the sub like a typical fanboy, because someone told him the sub would "laugh" at 1250W. He likely sent the nastiest, dirtiest 2500W a sub could ever get to to this particular X. God Bless the Sundown Audio Only page on FB.
  14. The fact the amp is 25 years old, still KICKING, and putting up damn close to rated is impressive. Components wear out with age, so it's pretty cool that it's still breathing.
