  1. Need to add: FREE delivery of the sub box within 100-ish miles once it has been paid for in full. This would be pricey to ship, so please don't ask for a quote on shipping bless you are 100% serious about buying it. Should fit with no problems inside a Tahoe, Suburban, Escalade, Expedition, Excursion, or any large SUV or van. 49" wide, all other specs are in the build thread linked in my sig.
  2. Well, I hate to do it, but I simply need to. Business demands are forcing me to take the sub box out of the back of my truck because I need the space for hauling parts. Totally custom carbon fiber reinforced subwoofer box hand built by me in my carbon fiber shop. Core is 1-1/2" MDF. Box is tuned to 35hz and rock solid. Subs are RE SX D4. $2000 OBO for box AND subs, I spent more that just on materials to build the box! Find a link to the build thread in my sig line.
  3. Selling off my carbon fiber sub box......

      Tongue weight man. It's not about how much weight the truck can pull, it's about how much tongue weight the rear suspension can lift. The tongue weight of a 26' trailers is probably around 600-700 pounds, then add 350-ish for subs and box and I am over what the rear suspension is designed to hold. But honestly, its more for the carrying space in the back of the truck. Tired of hauling shit stuffed into my back seats, barely fitting.

      You have any helper bags, man? With the money from your box, you could grab some helper bags then do a small build with a pair of E8v3's or something of the sort.

      It's an Escalade. It comes from the factory with rear air ride suspension.

  4. Happened this weekend in Georgia. Car gets all four wheels off the ground, with the nose pointed straight up at 118mph!! The parachute mount trips the timing sensor, you can see the scoreboard flash his time in one of the videos! And he sticks the landing. From what I hear, driver suffered no injuries, and the car was able to drive off the track under its own Jere Etheridge Flying at Lights Out 4 VIDEO:
  5. Oh, and I rechecked every single connection, even the speaker wire. Not a single thing loose, so we're good there.
  6. I finally had the chance to take the truck to a secluded spot and sit there with the engine off and the bass all the way up. Damn thing never went into protect, not even once, played for three minutes straight. I didn't want to take the chance of killing the battery and getting stranded with no back-up plan, so I gave up after one complete song. So, I suppose that means its something in the electronics then? Is that what that means? It will go into protect after just a few seconds while the engine is running, but plays off the battery for minutes safely and the truck starts right up like no big deal.
  7. No, I don't. Should I ask them to test it with stereo going full tilt, or will the load tester be capable of testing up to 270a without anything on?
  8. I just went out and checked. It is at 12.9 volts. Truck has been sitting for just over 4 hours. Granted it needs to be load tested but considering it has been sitting for 4 hours and has excellent resting voltage I would say the battery is fine. I'll check again in the morning also, before I start it up, and report back. Now resting at 12.6 volts, 16 hours after being run last.

  10. And vise-versa as well. Sucks. It's acted like this since the alt and battery were new. Both were purchased and installed at the same time. I just never bothered to figure out why I was having the problem because the main amp power wire was shitty undersize CCA 0ga, and I figured that was the issue. Now today, after finally replacing every bit of CCA with the huge Shok Competition OFC, I know that is not the issue. Sure, I could make a second run of 0ga to the amp, but that probably isn't going to help this issue much, if at all.

  12. I will check it tomorrow exactly as you suggested. Thanks for the help. I know all the connections are good because I just put in my new Shok Competition 0-ga today. But I will go over ever connection, every ground, every everything tomorrow with a fine-toothed comb before calling DC on Monday. It could be as simple as one nut/bolt that just isnt quite tight and is wiggling. It is usually something simple that you thought you did and just overlook. I agree, but I have gone over it several times, both recently and months ago. Never hurts to go over everything again, and I will, but my setup is super-simple. Not like there is a lot of connections to get loose. About the only way I could make connections better would be to solder them. All grounds are to the frame, with the frame freshly tapped and sanded down to a bare metal connection. BTW, I drag race a very fast street car and built it all myself. I usually don't leave loose connections or untightened bolts and everything is triple-quadruple checked. Missing something simple on an 8-9 second street car can get a guy killed.

  14. The battery alone should be more then capable of doing this...... with the truck off...if its still having problems and kicking protect your issue is not an alternator issue at all STFU already.
