  2. the bass is a little muddy and desoite being a sealed box it is a bit peaky around30- 35hz
  3. yes you could do that , if you can find abs that small it is black already . pex tubing is another option you will find it in the plumbing department , it is flexible and can be pulled and ran like wire and is very durable .
  4. anybody else care to chime in with some helpful how to on porting my box ? i am really clueless as to what i should tune for to get the best overall sound out of my sub set up .
  5. i got some bogus email kind of like that accept they posing as paypal ,saying that needed my info or to confirm my info or something to that effect . this has been a while ago , at that same time i heard of some email people were getting claiming to be us postal service with a package for delivery and when opened would load maleware or a virus ?
  6. i like to use a piece of solid copper wire like you would use for residential wiring (just 1 wire) push it through an existing grommet that looks usable and then wrap the fish wire around the power cable to pull and then tape shit out of it so it don't come loose . after i have this done i spray the grommet and power wire with silicone spray lube the stuff that leaves a dry film and then pull it through . sometimes i have had to chew a little bit out of the existing grommet to make it fit . if you have to trim the grommet to get a better fit you can seal it up good with silicone gasket make or sealant . if you don't want to go that route i don't see why a guy shouldn't be able run power under the car , definatley want to make sure you get the routing right to avoid anything that can damage you power cable and if it were me i would put the power cable inside a peice of garden hose or something to protect it from the elements .
  7. here's a few ideas for amps . probably best to figure out what amp you are gonna run before ordering subs so you get the right ohm load when it all comes together . as for figuring the power and ohms , add the rms power of the number of subs together and that is that . 2 subs @ 500 watts rms each = 1000 watt rms together . your ohms can go 1 of 2 ways depending on how you wire , if you paralell 2 coils the ohm load drops by half , 2-4 ohms coils paralell = 2ohm , if your wire 2 coils in series it doubles , 2-4ohm coils in sereis =8ohm load . hope this helps . http://www.woofersetc.com/p-9255-saz-1000d-sundown-audio-1000w-1-channel-monoblock-amplifier.aspx http://www.woofersetc.com/p-9258-sax-1200d-sundown-audio-1200w-1-channel-monoblock-amplifier.aspx http://www.woofersetc.com/p-9395-brz12001d-hifonics-1200w-brutus-series-1-channel-monoblock-class-d-amplifier.aspx http://www.woofersetc.com/p-8840-brz17001d-hifonics-brutus-series-1700w-rms-1-channel-monoblock-super-class-d-amplifier.aspx
  8. i guess i am not sure where t-3 is between low end and high end ,never heard of t-3 until joining smd . the woofers don't look so hot but the components look like they might not be a bad purchase

  10. all the shipping companies can be janky . and what alot of people don't know is that it can be tough to be reimbursed by insurance if the item damaged was packed in questionable way. the only way i know of where there is almost no chance insurance will give you a hard time is when: the item is in manufacture packaging and then packed inside a larger box with peanuts separating the inner and outer box .

  12. that looks to be steal which can be bent back fairly easy , but as someone else said earlier in this thread don't do anything just yet
  13. what ever anybody is willing to give in all reality . but me if it is in good condition i would shoot for half of retail
