  1. Im looking for a subwoofer either 8,10, or 12 inches with a low fs under 30. A qts between 5 and 5.6, also a decent xmax to support music down to 20 hz. I ask these requirements because i had 2 rockford p3 10s which i would buy again in a heartbeat if it werent for the fact that it can only go as low as 28 hz accord to sonicelectronix. i can vouch that it doesnt hit low notes without a loud sharp sound which i thought was coil hitting magnet. So the sub must also play down to 20 hz full power and be at or under 250$. I have also used a morel primo 12 which was a decent replacement but needs more xmax and a bit higher qts but it does hit 20 hz. I am considering buying a cadence s1 w8 but want some feedback from everyone here to see if they have any helpful experiences with similar taste in subwoofers.
  2. 2005 Mitsubishi Eclipse GTS Rockford Fosgate T1000.1BDCP amp American Bass XR 12" subwoofer 102lb Pumpkin with 6"x22" Bigass Port tuned to 48hz Pioneer Head unit Kinetik HC800 battery in the trunk Another fun year putting this together. I did get the inspiration to do this from Steve SMD Meade, and have been doing it the last 5 years around Halloween. I waited until the 28th of October to build it for a MECA audio competition. It definitely turned some heads and people loved it. It surprised a few with how loud it got during some demos. MECA measured at the head rest and it did a 137. Not too bad. Also, earned an award for loudest single 12" setup and loudest in my class. I wasnt there for the second day of the comp, so not sure if there was anyone else in my class. A W is a W i suppose. We clamped my power and apparently this pumpkin caused severe box pumpkin rise and it took my amp from 1ohm to 6ohms! Severe loss of potential power out of my Rockford Fosgate T1000.1BDCP amp. I took it to Audio Anarchy and put the meter in the kick and did a 139. Big E wanted to see what it would do in the port/inside the pumpkin. 162!!!! I played it hard until I could hear a couple of the bolts come loose and duck tape start to flap.

  7. Hey guys new to the forum here, found a lot of good info here, Just a quick question what do yous think of the soundstream t7 .122 12'' and the Soundstream EGA900D, I know they're a bit oldschool but I have the chance to get them for 1000$ AUD and I'm just wondering would they be any better than a mid range set or rockfords or anything like that around the same price? Thanks!
  8. I have recently just purchased a Rockford Fosgate P3 12" inch sub. I want to build a box but not really sure if it's best to stay within the manufactures recommended dimensions of .75 to 1.25 for a sealed box. And then the subject of what provides better sound, from a box thats taller than long, or longer than tall. Then the subject of facing the sub towards the back seat or out into the trunk. Can some one help me out? I'm very knowledgeable to car audio, just not at going beyond manufacturers recommended volume and trunks.

  11. ok so i bought this memphis mojo5 12" used the guy i got it from said there was nothing wrong with it and that it only had a few hours on it and when i got it i believed him because it looked brand new so i hooked it up it was making a popping sound so i took it back out and was looking at it and not everytime but every once in a while when i would push down evenly on the cone it would pop very loudly like in this video i checked the ohms on both coils and they are both where they should be and i cant smell a burnt coil. So obviously i was pissed and called the guy that sold it to me and he said that it forsure had nothing wrong with when he had it. The guy works at a car audio shop and seems like a good guy and he is trying to help me figure out what happened and after i sent him the vid he said that it seems like the pole could have shifted if ups dropped it. Does anybody know what the sound is caused by?
  12. DD 3512 preferably blown

    In search of a DD 3500 12 sub, preferably blown because i need a second one that im going to powder coat and do a custom recone. Needs to match this.
  13. ok, to start i want to reiterate that is for an SQL build, i have a car for SPL already. i have a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a stock set up besides the HU so its time to upgrade now that its getting nice outside. the "PLANNED" set up as i have no bought anything yet....

  14. Amp suggestions (Dual 1.5ohm 12" 1500RMS)

    Title says it all. Just looking to upgrade and get a new amp to replace my current Hifonics BRZ1200.1. The sub is a dual 1.5ohm custom 12 that needs 1500RMS. Any help is appreciated thanks in advance.
  15. Brand new to the world of car audio, but am really interested in getting into it. Here's my first system. Bought all the parts at various local audio shops, and installed it on my own. I know it's not much, but Im really looking foward to where this is gonna go. Single Kenwood KFC-W12svc Ported Box Planet Audio 600w 2-channel amplifier Kenwood KDC-248U Deck
  16. Well I broke down and went and bought a fully loaded custom rebuilt 12" Fi BL sub from a guy off caraudioclassifieds.org. I have decided that I want to start entering into some comp's as soon as there is one near me. I have always wanted to compete but have never owned a sub/amp setup like this until now. Just looking for all the advice/help that I can get right now to design/build a box for both competitions and daily. Vehicle: 2000 Ford Taurus Max Height: 14in Max Width: 34in Max Depth: 36in Comp Box Specs 2.5cuft tuned @45hz Double Baffled/Flush Mount Sub Daily Box Specs 3cuft tuned @30hz Double Baffled/Flush Mount Sub Powered by Hifonics BRZ1200.1D Any and all help with this build will be greatly appreciated. I did look into having woofer warehouse or RamDesigns to do a custom design for me. I would design it myself but I have no way to design it myself right now. I want to do a kerf port on my daily box for looks if thats not too much to ask for. Building the box is the best part and I want to make sure that it is done right and match the sub as best possible. Below are some pics and specs of the custom Fi Bl 12 Custom rebuilt FI BL 12 with a TI basket 2. Specs: Dual 1.5 ohm 1500 rms *FI BL motor *TI Basket *Sundown Zv2 cone *2 stiff linear 10" spiders *D1.5 ohm flat wound 8 layer coil *Genesis Carbon Fiber Dust Cap
  17. Kicker CVR 12 recone?

    I came across a good deal and wondering if I should buy it or not. The guy has 5 subs total. All are kicker cvr 12s, 2 are silver/grey with one blown in a kicker specific ported box and the other 3 are the newer black ones and 2 of those are blown. He was asking 150 but i managed to talk him down to 125. Should I buy these to replace my pioneer TSW304r's? And also would it be possible to recone one of the bad black ones with the good silver working driver to have both working subs with the black plastic part? Pics are below.
  18. After much toil and measurements (including plotting everything in winisd pro) i have decided on a box design for my Orion Hcca 12.2 with a new black coil. Can anyone critique this design/ give me any last pointers? Any pointers will be appreciated!
  19. HELP BUILDING BOX!!

    Hello everyone i am new to this building a custom box car audio stuff, previously i would just buy an normal sealed but now i want to get a custom box built. I really need help i recently bought a 12 inch DB Drive WDX 2k Subwoofer i have someone that knows how to cut perfectly the only problem is I NEED DIMENSIONS! i have no clue what dimensions to use for the speaker box i am trying to achieve some deep bass i mostly listen to music that has that deep bass. Thanks!
  20. What's up everyone, I've been brainstorming around for a little bit and I would love some advice and guidelines about a project I've been thinking about undertaking!! Check this out: I've been needing a system for the home, and threw together a rather "ghetto" set-up to power an extra amplifier, with the signal coming from a soundbar, hopefully explained by the photo haha. Anyways, just today I received two 14" x 8' sheets of 1/2" plexiglass, and i totally want to construct an enclosure for my clarion 12", out of pure plexiglass. To anyone who has dealt with acrylic extensively: I could really use advice over the cutting, bonding, and finishing!!
  21. Can anyone tell me the freq. that the SA-12 single box design...http://www.sundownaudio.com/index.php/products/subwoofers/item/sa-series.html is? According to my calculations, it is around 27hz, but I'm using a port calc, and I'm not even close to being a port expert. Thanks in advance!
  22. I'm looking for suggestions for a 12" sub-woofer with the following specs: 500-1000 watt RMS, I have a ported box tuned to 32 hz, listen to 20-70 hz music range, dubstep, rap music daily, NOT for competitions, but with SPL still as important a factor as SQ, $200-$300 range per sub. I've looked really hard at Sundown SA12, DC Audio Level 3, Soundqubed HDC3, American Bass HD. Almost everytime I think I've made my decision, I find a "spec" that is better on another brand. I fear I am over thinking it now, and feel more lost than I was when I began my search! I'm not looking to build a 10k watt system, so I feel, at the price range I'm looking for, I should be getting a pretty "high end" sub. Not top of the line maybe, but VERY far from a starter sub. Any other brands I should look into? Or suggestions that narrow the ones I've already listed? With SPL, SQ, build quality, and customer service all being very important factors. Thanks guys, and gals if applicable.
  23. Hey guys, just got an RE audio xxx 12 dual 2 ohm 2012 model. I'm gonna be powering it on a dd m4a. Gonna be going in a extended cab mini truck and was thinking to do an enclosure with sub up port facing driver side and wanted to tune around 28 to 30 hz. I looked up the recommended specs that re says and I know there's no way a sub that big can sound good with only 2.2 cubes. I was thinking about going up to 3.5 cubes and not sure how much port area they like. Thanks for the help
  24. Hey guys, I'm currently building my system for my 2008 BMW 328i. I want to build around a thousand watt system. I just ordered a JBL 1000 watt mono block. I know it will do more as Steve showed the 500 on YouTube putting around 750, so I'm assuming mine will do more than rated as well. I was thinking of either getting 2 JBL GTO 12's (I kinda like the all JBL thing) or going with a 12" PSI re-coned RE Audi SE-X that should hold 1000 watts all day. So anyway is it better to have 2 decent subs or one good sub.??? Oh and my box is going to be Sealed. My BMW trunk is pretty darned sealed up so I'm trying to get as loud as I can with either the 2 decent subs or 1 good one. ---The GTO 12's are 350 RMS each and from previous experience with these subs, they can def. hold more than that and sound good ---The RE Se-x is a blown sub of mine that I was thinking of re-coning from PSI. After re-cone it should hold 800 to 1000 i was thinking. It held power very well until I turned gain up too much and clipped the **** out of it. I hope all this info helps. Thanks guys! btw I was looking at the JBL GTI 12 but it is too deep for the custom box I'm getting for my trunk
  25. Hey all, I need some opinions on some subwoofers for my system. I am looking at getting a 12" woofer and I would would prefer it to be at least 1500 watt capable. Also, preferably with 1ohm. I am currently looking at the Sundown Audio VZ4 12" and the Fi Audio BL 12". If anyone has any other suggestions, throw them at me, any and all are appreciated. Oh and one more thing, well, two more actually. First thing, the highest I can go on price is around $650. Second thing, in the future I am planning on getting the SP Audio 12" 8000 watt subwoofer, does anyone have any experience with this sub, of know much about it?
