  1. Steve, what would you recommend I tune the port for this 4th order just to be able to get as much range as we can while outside? Would a mid 40s be alright? And do you think the lows taken care of by the sealed will be noticed at all when outside? Thanks.
  2. Okay so here are a couple more pictures of the speaker pods, as you can see, the rubber clear coat looks like it kind of 'cracked' while drying. Not very happy with the look so hopefully if I spray another coat on it can help cover this. Let me know if you see any easy fixes. Again, this is not made to the absolute best of my ability because it is just something kind of rough. Used spare bondo we had laying around so didnt use as much as needed thats another reason why it looks so rough.
  3. I will make sure to get on that as soon as spring rolls around! Right now in Wisconsin everything is an icy mess. I will post some more pics of equipment here when I get to work on this for your entertainment. Will I get in trouble with this still being in the subwoofer/enclosure thread?
  4. That was going to be my next question to you guys, but here is my thoughts... For the speaker boxes mounted on the top of the roll cage: I fiberglassed both of these enclosures, then sprayed them with a "clear flex seal" that is supposed to protect from water damage. Then I sprayed over with 5 coats of gloss black, followed by another 2 coats of clear flex seal. I don't think the box will take on any damage (lets hope). For the speakers themselves, I am going to try to stay out of the bad weather as much as possible. But for when I do some serious mudding or something like that, I am going to just take these off from the roll cage. With how the roll cage is made, I will be able to make something that is very easily detachable. I also have 2 speakers wired together coming to bolt terminals on each side that will have covers on them from the elements as well. So taking these off wont be more than just a few minutes. When those are disconnected, I have some old MTX 6x9s mounted under the rear seats, and under driver seat as well as passenger seat. 4 6x9s in total. They're just wired to the head unit so they can play when the other speakers are disconnected. These are something I do not care if they get dirty or whatever because they can EASILY be replaced if need be. For the "trunk": Everything will be made, then covered in a box that I will make covered in a more "nice" bedliner. This will house all the Amps, Battery, fuses, and Subs. I dont think this part of the build will be too tricky because if you follow the theme for the majority of this build. I don't have certain space requirements, or anything. So I will simply get everything where I want it, and created a box around it. Thanks again guys, any help is very helpful for me.
  5. Thanks for the reply Steve, I had something of that nature in mind after watching your build for the orange RZR. What I'm thinking is to do is to aim the ports towards the front through the middle seat in the back because I will RARELY have every seat filled in this thing due to the roll cage taking up so much leg room in the back. And I will still make something that can cover the ports for when I hose this down. I also thing a bedliner is the obvious choice for cover on all the enclosures and such. Thanks again, any input is appreciated!
  6. Alright, I have a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0 inline 6 I recently bought off craigslist that im re doing just for a "fun" vehicle. Im recently doing a stereo build on this thing that pretty basic, but my question is, what kind of enclosure should I build that will be loud, or heard from an outside standpoint? Equipment: - Aftermarket Head Unit - 132 amp Alternator - Big 3 upgrade - 8 JL audio 4" 2 way speakers - Dual 4 Channel amp for the 2 ways (one I found in my attic) - HiFonics Brutus BX1205D amp - 2-12" Alpine Type R (again found in my attic) In a prefab enclosure - Extra Battery in the back, all 4ga Power Wire Everything is pretty much "thrown together" and was found the cheapest way possible. I am pretty good with subwoofer enclosures when it comes to making them, so I dont think there will something that will be too difficult. My goal isn't to get these the loudest I can, but more to make them sound good and be HEARD outside. Does anyone have any experience when it comes to this? Like something from a ranger or any other UTV? Any help is appreciated!! Thanks!
  7. Haha who cares about the looks.. I love the set up tho man! Looks great!!
  8. Yeah ive seen a couple of your vids on youtube when researching IB set ups! I really dont know what brand to go with... stuck between the Dayton, FI IB3, anf tantric LD.. I think im just going to do some research on each brand and see which one i think id personally like more. I love your set up tho!! I wish my ride could fit even 1 18.. but i only have 17" tall... Thanks for the input man!
  9. Have you heard them in person? And do you know pricing on them?
  10. I have been doing some research on a couple a different Infinite baffle subwoofers, and the most common woofers i see that come are the FI IB3 subwoofer and the Dayton Audio IB385-8. Does anyone have any experience with either of these 2 subwoofers? Or have any other IB subwoofer? I am thinking a 2-15" set up in you guessed it, and infinite baffle! Any input is appreciated! Thanks!
  11. I could use ideas on woofer size, and brand along with amp size and brand! But please no versus i do not want this blocked! Im jusr asking for suggestions and peoples experiences!
