  1. I built mine with a slot port tuned to 40hz. Also built a box for three with the recommended port in the recommended volume for all of them and it hit lows but didnt really like anything besides that. Id still with the slot port.

    Ill get you some measurements of the port if your interested?

    The three 8's


    And the single 8 for the girl


  2. Already stated the the amp and sub setup. Have three XS's and a AQ 120.4, Q-Logic Kicks. Duel DC Power 300 amp alty's that hold between 13.8-14.5 full tilt, at half Ohm(;

    Hands down one of the cleanest install I've witnessed in a truck. All Knu OFC wires, DD and CC-1 everything in the car. We demo the car for hours when people and friends want to hear it and not a single thing gets hot.

    Here are some pictures of the box and DC's


  3. What's the lowest size fuse you think I can get away with? Will a smaller fuse result in me getting a lower score?


    Run some solder under a 60amp and call it good. :spiteful:

    This guy lol...why not just hide a copper bar there also..... pretty sure that's cheating i don't run fuses never have..thats cheating

    Im aware. I am not guilty of this, but it is a route some take to Sand Bag a class which we all know is no better then running a lower fuse rating as well..

  4. More port area, right now you currently have 9-10" or Pa to Cube. Need between 12-16" on average. So pretty much make the dimensions of the port smaller, as its going to mostly free air the subs, but make it longer to gain more Port area per cubic feet.

    Spl mainly revolves around three things; how you designed the system, how efficient the system is, and what amount of power you through at it. You need efficiency in order to put the power to use. I.e. a glass like finish inside the box, 45's placed in proper places, sanded corners, blah blah blah. The less effort the sub has to use to move air a higher score will produce.

    Pretty isnt always loud.

  5. Depends on what type of bandpass the box is. Most 6th order build tune the back chamber low(below 35) and the front chamber gets tuned high(above 40). Regardless of how you tune it bandpass boxes are efficient, but the box performs how you build it. So its best to take your time and do it right.

  6. Everything BUT rap.

    Avenged sevenfold



    Jason Mraz

    Meg and Dia

    Michael Buble


    Eminem (kind of rap, just more (hateful)


    Bullet for my valentine


    Art of dying

    System of a down

    Most country music

    And so on. Rap music is just very boring. Every song is the same, jus a different beat. Listen to older stuff sometimes. I do like Kane west just can't stand him as a person. But hes creative.

    Some nice stuff in there Sir.

    Im going to have to disagree on the rap stuff though. I can agree on the same story different beat, but that is in the mainstream world. I bet if you maybe to a deeper look into the old school stuff you can find some good stuff. It be like me saying Country is just about Horses, girls leaving, and sipping Bud. Haha its ignorance to the music.

    Try this?

  7. What do you guys listen to? I know we like Waka, Young Jeezy and the others for the basslines and seeing how loud it is..But what music do you listen to relax or after work?

    I may be the only one on this, but the music I play in my car and on my ipod are two totally different things.

    So post up some videos and a little comment about the artist. Always down to listen to something new.

    Some rockabilly-punk

    And some Blu, look into him. If you like real hip hop with record tracks Im pretty sure youll did it.

  8. Just out of curiosity... Why did you get a $500 sub just to skimp out on an amp that won't even utilize all of what this thing has to offer?

    Point made.

    But money is rather tight. Have day and night school...which means a vary scarce income. Ive looked into the hifonics and will propably go with the 1700 or the 2400. Just trying to get my bang for the buck.

  9. Possibly a dirt signal?

    I had a strapped set of amps that the rca's where touching that cause the same noise. Try organizing the wires to see what will happen. I know power cables next to rca's can cause the same thing.

    Probably not a lot of help, just some ideas to take in.

  10. If you secured your amp down tight enough it shouldn't move.. at all. With your box being mounted as well nothing should move. I am suuuure there is something you can do, but that's something someone else can tell you, not all that wise on the legal stuff.

    The MDF walls are flexing, not the box moving..
