  1. Well, new build has started. Pulled out everything today, and started working on the base. Made a 2x4 frame and started laying down the floor. The frame is bolted down using the seat bolts.
  2. Sooooooo, I did a thing 2 FI Team 18's one needs recone. Was too good of a deal to pass up. Current plan is to put 4 Q3500's to the pair. one per coil
  3. Well, Truck has been parked for a few weeks. Having strange issues. truck will start up great, but stall out after about 5 minutes of idling. hopefully it is a simple fix, but I have tried a couple things so far with no luck. May have to take it in to the shop. Will likely be pretty pricey and set back my build plans a bit. but we shall see. Once i get it up and running again, I got some pretty big plans in store ?
  4. Thank you! The Q4.90 is doing great at 1 ohm. I emailed soundqubed to see what they recommended, and they said that the amp could handle 1 ohm, but may get hot, and recommended putting a fan on it. I ordered a fan, but haven't put it in. Honestly I don't think I need it. I live in Wisconsin so the weather is very cold, which could be helping, but I haven't had a single issue with it!
  5. Also, got either a bad fuel pump, or fuel pressure sensor. Truck keeps dying. So it's parked for a while till I can get it fixed /: hooked up the battery maintainer and there she sits.
  6. Lesson learned. Don't turn up the bass when there is snow on the rear window and roof. Safe to say my rear hatch flexes wayyyy too much. This was what happened after about a 4 second burp
  7. Got a small vid of the new recones. Still able to hair trick fairly well. will do a distance test vid with the doors soon.Just gotta find a spot to do it at. Wasnt able to take a great video since it was hurting my girlfriends ears, but its still moving a good amount of air.
  8. I caved and strapped both amps. I have the sub level at -5 on the head unit and god damn, It is still loud as hell. I dont know if it is just because ive been without bass for so long, but its almost as loud as the stock hdc4's. These are still super stiff, gain turned down, and sub level turned down. Will only get better with time
  9. small update. Switched out one of my 3500's for one of the new ones I got. So now both sub amps have the etched soundqubed and match. Ordered a fan to put on my Q4.90 since I'm running my doors at 1 ohm. That will be installed soon. As well as a relay for everything. Got the custom hdc4's all up and running and they sound great! Breaking them in on one amp for now. But will be going full tilt soon! Also, (shameless plug) if you like my build, it would be greatly appreciated if I could get your vote for this months system of the month!
  10. Also! Just hooked up the 3500 that fell off my dresser and tested it.... it's good!! No protect. No weird noises. Fired up perfectly fine. Super pumped!!
  11. Got my replacement recone yesterday. Got it all glued right now, just waiting for it to cure. Should be back to 100% by tomorrow!
  12. Yeah these doors on the one amp will keep up PLENTY with the two 15's. And I'm sure would hold up just fine to another two with two more amps once I put another Q4.90 on em. And thank you! I quite proud with how they came out. Especially for my first time doing doors, and my first time wrapping anything with vinyl. Just hope my door hinge pins and bushings hold up to the weight. Lol. And yeah. Fingers are crossed on the amp. I'm a little scared to test it. lol.
  13. Also, I'm a little worried. I recently bought 2 more 3500's, and I had them both sitting on top of my dresser. I guess one wasn't on all the way because in the middle of the night, my cat must have stepped on it where it was hanging off, and it fell about 4 feet onto the ground. I took off the back plate and there was a tiny bead of solder that was rattling around. Praying it didn't fuck something up from the fall. That would SUCK. Will be hooking it up to my test bench soon to find out.
  14. Got my doors mounted and playing! And my oh wow. They sound great! Each door is just on one channel of my Q4.90, so each speaker is only getting about 20 watts or so. But man they are loud and clear. Nice and punchy mid bass too actually. I was quite surprised. Also hooked up my A pillars. Was scared they were gonna be too harsh having 2 super tweets in each pillar, but again, those too are nice and clear and go really well with the doors. Very happy with how everything turned out not the best pics, but here are the doors mounted
  15. Both doors finished! Got my doors deadened some more, used damp rope to tame a lot of the rattles too. Ready to be installed tomorrow
  16. Thanks! Definitely did not go as easy as I thought it would. The first piece of vinyl I cut I messed up on and it was a little short. Tried to get it to work, but ended up tearing it all off. Got some 4 stretch vinyl from a teammate local to me and gave that a try. Went so much better. It was still kind of a pain to get it all to stick smoothly, but I agree that it turned out looking good. The shiny black glue you can see above the speakers is black E6000. when I cut the vinyl where it met the panel, you could see some body filler, and it wasnt sticking the best. Laid a bead of black E6000 along it and smoothed it with my finger and it made it look MUCH better. Got the second panel body filled, and going to go out and sand it in about an hour or so. Should be ready for vinyl tonight!
