  1. So I have already built a 6 cubic inch box with 3/4 MDF. Box Specs Width-40" Height-18" Depth-19 1/2" Right now its just a sealed box, but i want to port it to about 28 hz. Can anyone help me figure out the port size and all of that? Iv never done a port. Thanks in advance!
  2. So me and my uncle are building a wall enclosure in the back of a 1997 expedition, and we made a little mistake of making the box 18 inches long when I feel it should be way longer so I can tune it to 29-31 hertz, we already glew'd the sides bottom and back together but we were curious if it's possible we could glue/caulk or anything to add on more wood to the sheet if it's possible, I was told it would fuck with the frequency and told it would work if done right, right now I can only tune the box to 35 hertz when I'm trying get lower This is how the box looks right now, there is a opening in the back for plexy glass to be installed.
  3. i saw this the other day lol very clean in stall. sounded amazing haahhahahaaha like nails on a chalkboard or cats burning alive. he was only clipping a little bit. it might have sounded horrible but it was so loud u get dizzy next to it lol i never want to here or see it again

    BL 18 in a 4th Order

    I'm gonna be building a new box for my BL 18 soon and I really wanna build a 4th so I can have ability to play a wide range of music. Anyone designed a 4th for a BL 18 before or know someone who has? I'm currently running it off a SQ2200 and the max dimensions I can fit are about 20 x 41 x 25 (H x W x D). Do I even have enough room for a 4th?
  7. Here is a link to my youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/Fuzzy336 https://www.facebook.com/CentralNCBassheads I started a Facebook page for us bass heads in the Central North Carolina area from the Triangle area to the Triad area and every small town in between and surrounding those areas. I plan to start hosting Bass competitions real soon because I managed to buy a Termlab for only $120. It's an older model but it still works great. Also, on the page I will let people know about other local competitions and any sales/specials being offered by local stores. I'm just trying to help bring the bass community together 1 step at a time. So on to the videos! The newest and most updated walk around video will always be the top embedded video with all of the older walk a-rounds listed beneath it. Tahoe walkaround #1: ---------------------------- Below are the flex videos I have uploaded in order from newest to oldest. Flex Video # 7 - Supafreak (decaf): Flex Video # 6 - I Cook (decaf): Flex Video # 5 - Rich as Fuck: Flex Video # 4 - Itchin: Flex Video # 3 - Bars on me: Flex Video # 2 - Air Forces: Flex Video # 1 - Swimming Pools: ---------------------------- So tell me what you guys think so far, thanks! Feel free to ask any questions or give any suggestions, ill gladly take any help being offered lol.
  8. Long time no post guys, Hopefully someone can help me tune this 6th order. My gross dimensions are (rear chamber) 6.58 cuft and (front chamber) is 4.17 cuft. These dims do not include woofer displacement. I would like to use 6" aeros for porting if possible. Now what do I tune the rear chamber @ and what do I tune my front chamber to? Please help me. thank you in advance
  9. *if in wrong section please move it to the right one* I recently acquired a Termlab from a shop that closed near me, at the bottom of the post there will be a pic. This termlab is an older model and I was curious, is it possible for termlabs to become un calibrated over time to where it doesnt show the correct DB level? if so can you re calibrate it to make it correct if that is the case? Also now that I have this termlab I want to start hosting local competitions, what all do I need to know about hosting events? whats the best way to advertise them locally? do I need to get a permit from the town I'm hosting the event in to not get shut down with noise ordinance complaints? how do I go about doing that? and is there anything else i need to know? I just want to start having local fun events for people around my area to be able to compete for trophies and maybe cash prizes if it picks up enough. any and all advice is welcome, thanks! Here is the pic:
  10. Before I even get started with this build I just want to give big thanks to Jeremy (AKA FLDataTeK) for helping me out with my build. Anyway since GetDown, Reel, specially Regizzle -he invented it- (an another forum) keeps on calling me CB might as well make it my build log's name. My Vehicle: Toyota Corolla LE 2009 1.8l ----------------------------------------------------- Let's all get started with my previous system that I just took out. It was pretty good, but wasn't for me. JL Audio 500/1 Slash - (2) 12w3v2 in a JL Audio H.O Box JL Audio 300/4 - C2 650 and C2 690tx Pioneer 6500bt So out with the old, in with the new.. yada yada.. ----------------------------------------------------- Okay then here comes the good part. Let's start off with some electrical. Front Battery: XS Power D2400 Alternator: Singer 310A Wires: Sky High Car Audio 2/0 OFC (Garden Hose According to Jeremy) Here it is after I've installed them and the "big 3" with Jeremy and his crimpers. The only problem that I do have -well kind of- is that I need a better buss bar than this for my alternator. (So I need to get a better one soon). I also bought a "got decaf?" sticker from Decaf for support and the stickers add deebbeezzzzz! Grommets are bulky enough for me to use as a club just incase somebody wants to mess with me. I have 2 runs of 2/0 inside the car to the trunk. I must say for a couple of amateurs we didn't do that bad at all. Going into the trunk: Pretty clean. We're impressed ourselves on how it turned out. Now let's go into the head unit. My choice is Pioneer 80prs.
  11. Ok, I have super limited space in my RX7, I have probably about 2 1/2 to 3 cu ft of useable space in the hatch of my 1994 Mazda RX7. Right now I have 2 - Kicker L7 Truck Boxes in it (model 08TS10L72), and they barely fit. They aren't not loud, but I'm looking for as loud as I can fit in there. I used to have 4 - 12's in my Ford Probe, and that was LOUD, I just don't have the same space available in here to fit much. If you had 2 - 3 cu ft of space to use... what would you choose?
  12. hi guys, my name is christian and i am from germany. my english isn´t very good, but i´ve heard this forum here is the biggest car-audio forum of the world and i hope you can help me. sorry for all grammar und writing- mistakes . i´ve used the searching option of this forum here, but there isn´t that what i am searching for. to my question: all of you who installed a wall know the phenomenon, that there isn´t any bass-feeling at deep music when the doors are closed. there is just a bit of wind in the car, but no feeling on the body. but when doors are open you can´t breathe and you are thinking, that you must die, if you know what i mean. i´ve heard a lot of wall buildings in germany and simply three or four car´s here can play deep music with doors closed and there is simply the same feeling inside like doors open. i talked with the designers of this installations, but they wouldn´t talk about it because they spent a lot of time to their enclosures and so they wouldn´t tell other people about. my plan for the future is to build an enclosure with about 10-12 12´s, probably ETON-sub´s and i wouldn´t must open the door´s that i can feel the full power of the sub´s. I will sit in my car, doors and windows closed and will feel the "pain" from high and low frequencies to my body and perhaps to someone who is geting a demo from me. what kind of enclosure is the best for such a plan? 4th order wall, enclousure like gary kilians car or.... or do you think a wall is here not the best thing that i can do, because the deep frequencies can´t spread good in the car with a wall? i would be glad about an answer. thank you for reading this text in this bad english
  13. well I know im going bring a few friends, sadly no ones besides me has anything to compete with. Yet. but im trying to find out who is all coming out, and maybe we could setup a SMD meet n greet sometime after or before the show, if after maybe hit up a bar or something. who knows everyone chime in!
  14. I am seriously looking into upgrading my single 15" p3 and getting a single 18" sub. What would be the best sub for the money if I only wanted to spend $500 absolute tops on the sub itself?? Thanks in advanced!

  17. Sky High doesn't have a 2/0 ANL fuse holder yet and I have their 2/0 OFC and I'm going to need a fuse holder. I really don't want to buy a 1/0 fuse holder and modify the plastic for it to fit, any other suggestions?

    I have four 15 CVX's in a 20 cube ft enclosure that has a divider making it two chambers. I plan on getting a new amp with more power cause my MA Audio 4000d isn't cutting it. I figure I'm pushing 500 watts per sub and it hits pretty hard but I want more power and skull crushing bass. My question is will more power help me figuring 1200 RMS watts per sub? Oh and I have 3 batteries in the back linked together
  19. I've reached "Sub-life Crisis" an decided to upgrade my current system for the summer, and most definitely the local comps coming around the corner. My plan is to keep most of my gear and try to accomplish SPL an SQL.

  21. So for starters, its a 99' Honda Civic DX Hatchback that currently has an Alpine head unit, and stock speakers that have been replaced by Kenwoods (all in the current holes nothing else has been added). Currently, the build idea is put a single Alpine Type R 15 subwoofer with an amplifier to fit it, and then sound deadening the whole car, also planning on using the Big 3 as well after everything is settled. (Dimensions of the trunk coming later) (Not trying to win any SPL drags, just have a nice sounding car that bumps.) [The Budget currently is under $1000] Now, onto the interesting part/questions. For the maximum amount of SPL a single 15, or two 12's? Which direction of the port and sub(s)? What brand of Sub/Amp would you recommend or personal favorite? Would you use a capacitor or go with a second battery if any? What type of box would you build? And other then using MDF then fiberglassing it, would you do anything other then that? [feel free to post responses of what you would do personally, no opinions will be shot down, and all will be carefully looked over and thought about.,] So on the fact of sounding like a total noob about everything, some help would be great. Please and thank you, and much love and help as well.
  22. I am slowly putting together my American Bass system. I have 2 AB TNT 12s and will be getting 2 more and 2 AB VFL 100.1s and will be rebuilding a 4 12 enclosure. The box I have now is temporary and was used to test the aero ported style enclosure. Really dig how low this mofo goes. I plan on doing all AB highs and mids too. Slowly but surely this is getting done lol. I tried linking pics of the build from facebook but none of them worked. I will make a youtube vid of the pics and post link later.
  23. Hey so i'm new to the spl competition world and want to ask a few questions. So i have a jetta wagon and have a 39" by 24" by 15" area in my trunk for a box (that will keep the port if facing back about 5 inches from the hatch.) So i was wondering what woofer size and # of woofers i should run to have the most out put? What i can think of so far is 2 12's 1 15 2 15's - (maby like SA 15's or Z 15's who like smaller boxes) 1 18 (will probably get around 6 cubes max after port displacement) aero or slot also i plan on running 2 batteries in total and one amp AQ2200D for now (3500 if i can get a HO alt) I have ran one 15" and scored a 144 Db and now have a daily box with two 15's but is above the window line so i cant compete. so the last question i ask is what classes can i compete in if i have 2 batteries no wall and with the variably being the # and size of woofers? If you can answer any of this and have advice from a vet it would be much appreciated.
