  1. Holy cow, just wanted to drop in and give y’all an update on where I’ve come with my Honda since the last time I posted here: Everything has been changed out from what I originally started with haha. Current system consists of the following: 2x Sundown Zv5 12s (one installed, waiting to get a box for the second for both) 1x Sundown Salt-6 4x Skar TX65C components 4x Skar TX65C tweeters 1x Skar Skv2-100.4 1x XS power D3400R 1x Limitless Lithium Cyber 12k 1x Mechman 240amp Alt (251 amp on birth tag) 1x Big four with double runs from alt and grounds Double runs of 0 gauge OFC to the trunk 2x SMD Dual XL fuse block 1x SMD Quad XL fuse block Sound deadned the crap out of my trunk and car. That’s basically everything I’ve done to it so far minus a few things like ELD bypass, etc. Nice thing is, even when full tilt, I NEVER, drop below 14.2v! Bare in mind this is Is with only one Zv5 hooked up running at 4ohm. My goal is to get a new box built and installed soon to run the second Zv5 that looks at me everyday in my living room while I work from home during quarantine haha. After that, I’m redoing my component sets to the D4S 65s and a Salt 200.4 when they finally drop. Also going to redo my tweeters to the Sundown SA ones and keep my Skv2-100.4 to run them. Sure have come a long way since running my single Skar EVL-10 and a Rp-1500! Here are a few pictures I have, somethings have changed a bit but, pretty close to how it’s sitting right now. If ya want any more pics or info, I’ll get some. if you have any pointers or question, lmk! I’ll be happy to answer or implement.
  2. Trying keep my install simple.i really dont want to upgrade alt.because of the pcm.was going to go with one or maybe two group 48agm batts.but thinking it might be to hard on alt to keep up..then i seen this sb500.was wondering if a single sb500 would be a better option.my system consist of one ampere 2k and two 150.4.no parking lot demos, just a daily.any input or thoughts?ive emailed xs waiting to gear back.but like opions thanks
  3. wats up guys , im wondering wats the pros and cons of running tool maker dual inputs to a crescendo bc3500 or sundown 3500? like will i see a power increase or is even worth it to buy them.
  4. hey wats up fellow bass heads, im noticing a a drop in my voltage and i was wondering would it make any diffrence if i disconnected the extra runs of 0 guage coming from the back to alt to the front battery then alternator. like basically my extra runs of 0 are connected to my alternator meaning power wire. but i was thinking bout taking them off and connecting them to the front battery then to the alternator., would ait make a diffrence
  5. So I'm planning on running a bc5500 in the future and i have a few questions about what batteries i'll be needing in the trunk. Currently i've got an XS power d1200 under the hood and a DC power 270 amp alt with big 3 and what not. my question is what size batteries should i go for in the back if i'm looking to run the bc5500 at 1 ohm (5500 watts)? Also how many runs of 1/0 gauge should i have going to the rear batteries? I was thinking of xp 3000 but my voltage often runs at 15 volts and even up to 15.4v on cold days and i've heard that xp series doesnt like anything above 15v? Might a D series be better?
  6. Okay so i am wondering because my trucks stock wire mounts on the side of the battery will i be able to run the stock to the side with this and the zero gauge to the top for my alt and other battery?
  7. Got the new Mechman 320 amp alternator installed this morning in 15 minutes!!!! The alternator is right on top so not one issue. Old one was 160 amp alternator 320 is keeping everything in Jeep happy now! Going to run a another power run to back for a total of 2 runs to rear.
  8. PICTURES TO COME ONCE PHOTOBUCKET DECIDES TO WORK PROPERLY So i've had a couple builds on here, time for another lol Some lead-in explanation is needed as always. Started out with a dollar and a dream, bought an 08 Tahoe, pretty well loaded with hopes of a 4-18s c-pillar on 20k with 4 alternators. Leather, heated buckets front and rear, third row (obviously to be removed), the perfect canvas to create a beast system.
  9. So I have a d3400 here that was leaking around the seams earlier last winter and slowed in the spring. Now it seems to be bubbling out liquid around the top and making a squealing noise and it seems to have cracked the casing iteseld, idk if its from pressure or what, but I have never dropped this battery, and it is located in a very secure place so it doesnt move around and is held in nice and tight. This battery see's no more then 14.3v for charging and is setup with a mechman 220 amp alt. All 2/0 gauge wiring, it had started leaking earlier this year but was holding the voltage fine, was told pretty much to keep running it, but I had the option of sending it in, I decided to just run it as it was working alright. Now it has gotten a lot worse and seems to be going all over. Its 34 months old, so 2 months from the warrenty being up, hoping Nathan will chime in, im more then willing to ship it in for warranty. The battery has fans blowing on it as it goes through the amps then the battery, ill post some pictures of how my amp rack is currently setup, I havnt updated my Build log for awhile so you will get to see some new work that hasn't been posted also Battery was part of the 2010 Group Sale buy in December, so 34 months ago. I do still have the original Receipt also! From Today November 4th (Didnt Push on it at all, this was just what it was doing) Back In April 3 - Kicker 650.4 amps mounted in the tire wheel, along with a cooling system, speaker junction, fusing, and battery tray With the top piece it holds it so it doesnt move at all, I have more room then how the stock setup was for a trunk and all my mid/high equipment installed A Lot better and space saving this this old amp rack with the old tire rack not even being used!

  11. Recently I noticed (while charging AGM XS batteries) that my PSC60 makes a chirping/buzzing sound when its in Float Charge mode (13.5V). It sounds kinda like what an amp sounds like when its clipping. I dont recall this noise in the past. Its sounds bad enough that I dont want to leave it on overnight in charge or recovery mode. Cant get a response from XS Power on the matter. Any input? Are your chargers rather quiet? I'll get a video tonight when I get into the garage.
  12. *************[Note: Since photobucket decided to nerf everyone's accounts, a lot of the pictures in this thread are gone. I intend to fix all of the posts but it will take quite a while. Photos start on page 29 currently. In the meantime all of the photos are available on Facebook by searching #projectflexington and many are on Instagram under the same hashtag. Thanks for looking and please don't be afraid to comment! ]************* So figure it is time to start a build log for my 6th order wall. Been working on it for a few weeks now. I'll start by posting the equipment I'm using for the build. Electrical: Batteries: 2 nsb170fts and 2 stinger group 31s: 3 banks of super caps: 2 singer 320amp alternators (these came with the truck, I'm currently in the process of redoing the bracket to strengthen it and add a tensioner but I'll elaborate later): 4+ spools of skyhigh 1/0, knukonceptz 4/0 ofc for alternators (will post pictures later) Terminals, marine grade ring terminals lugs, properly crimped with double wall adhesive lined heat shrink: Subs are 2 sundown x15s rev 1(will be rebuilding for level 6 18s at a later date): Sub Amp, kicker warhorse: Head unit and tweeters, Sony dsx-s210x and 4x Earthquake Screamers, 1.5" 150wrms per pair silk Dome tweeters with replaceable voice coils: Mid bass, 4x dayton audio 10" pa woofers, 300rms each: Mids are tbd, probably 2 8" midrange speakers. Lots of Baltic birch: If you enjoy, please comment!
  13. Does aluminum bus bars give you a better connection than just using power wire to connect batteries... if so wat the best size to use like 1" thick 2" thick etc.
  14. NEED HELP my civic uses a d51r battery and i was going to add an xs power d375 for a little more juice and was wondering will it be ok if i hooked them together or will i need to get another reverse polarity battery ????
  15. Ive seen guys on here talking bout 0 guage welding cable is cheaper than 0 guage power wire, is this true and were to buy. its seems like you can get cheaper 50 ft of 0 guage power wire then welding cable online.
  16. So i have what i think is a pretty simple question. If i have a regular flooded battery as a starter battery can i use an XS power battery as a supplement to my car audio system. for now it would be a saz 1500d at 2 ohms, so only about 800 or so watts, which i know is not much for that battery but when i get some different subs and wire to 1 ohm ill be around 1500 watts. my main question is would i HAVE to run a relay as to separate the batteries when the car is off? would their be a constant push/pull from the two batteries that could potentially cause the batteries to drop below 12.6 while im not using the car. the longest i go without using my car is about 4 to 6 days. its rare that i ever go a full week without at least cranking it and letting the regular battery charge a bit while i listen to some music. Thanks in advance to everyone who answers!
  17. If your into Sundown then this video should definitely hold your attention.. Actually, if your into car audio just the slightest bit, this video will do wonders for you. Filmed and edited by myself. This is Dennis Romasco's Isuzu with a badass 4th order inside. Watch VIDEO Comment Like SHARE and subscribe=]
