  1. I am looking into purchasing two 15inch speakers. The manufacture is "Ultimate" model is PW1550. The speakers were originally made in the nineties. I was mainly wondering, for 300watts, is the 50oz magnet good enough? The xmax is .5inches...... Is fifty dollars worth it?
  2. Finally started my build!!! I am starting out by putting two Power Acoustik Mofo 154X subs in my charger. I'll Be hooking them up to a BAMF 5500.1D amp. I'll tryto post pics as i go but i don't have many yet. (btw i know that power acoustik is crap but i'm 17 and a little limited on $$) got my power and ground done it's to easy to run wires in my trunk... didn't take any pics while i was building my box... here's a quick test fit before i put on the outer baffle which will also serve as a foot/stand and hold it parrallel attaching the outer baffle didn't have the money for the integration kit and a new headunit so I decided to go with an LOC... got a good one from my boss for pretty cheap. here it is along with my amp turn on wire and switch just another pic of the switch I'll try to get more pics as i continue my build and update as i get them.
  3. I'm looking to make a ported enclosure for my vmax 15. In the manual it says that the internal volume for both the recommended sealed and ported enclosures are the same, 2 cubic feet. From my experience, I've always seen the recommended ported enclosures to be larger than the sealed. So my question is, has anyone had any experience with these subs and found/know if the 2 cubic feet volume for a ported enclosure would work? Or should I go with one a little larger...
  4. Need some help and/or designs for a box for a P3D4-15. It's going into the back of a 92 Hyundai Sonata. I've tried mocking up a template cardboard box with RF's recommended specs. Height 18' X Width 28' X Depth 12' It's a wee bit to large at 18inches tall, everything else fit fine. If someone could rework the numbers or even a different box design I would appreciate it immensely.
  5. This is probably a dumb question but it's been bugging me for a while. I seen that you are not supposed to charge the 12 volt XS Batts at more than 14.4 Volts. I also see alot of peoples systems with a voltage in the low 15's range. Does that harm the Batteries or only when using a charger over 14.4?.
  6. Alright so I have the opportunity to trade my 4 kicker comp 15's for a zv4 12 from sundown. I don't know if it would be worth it. I'm running the four 15's with a 1000w Memphis amp at 1ohm since the kickers rms are 250w each. In a Tahoe if that matters.
  7. I just got my brand new DC Level 4 15" sub today and Im going to put it on my DC 3.5k for daily use along with competing in spl. I have a 1991 Nissan Maxima and was wondering if I could get some box suggestions, (on net volume, port size and length and tuning frequency ect..). I'll be overpowering it by quite a bit so I wanted to make sure I made the box right. I was thinking something around 3.25 cu.ft. so itll fit in my trunk. Thanks.
  8. I am slowly counting down the days in anticipation for the day when the dc level 3 15s arrive at my doorstep. I will post a video when they arrive to show how much I support the whole dc team
  9. please read the for sale section rules.
  10. Hey everybody. If you could please review my measurements and calculations in Torres' Calculator and let me know if I am on the right track. it would be much appreciated. Building a box for a single 15" Alpine Type R. SWR-1541 powered by about 400w ALSO... I have a question about woofer placement on my design. It is going to be a rear firing and rear facing slot ported box, with 3 common port walls. Where should the woofer be located on the face of the box. If you could take a look at the image below and let me know the best design taking into account my rather long port running along the back inside wall of the enclosure. Ideally, I'd like to use design #3, as I will have to play around with my measurements if I have to use either of the first two designs... Thanks!
  11. Looking for these old Image Dynamics subs. They only come in 15"s. There is also a newer IDSPL they made, but I want the old one. You can tell it apart because the one I want has a stamped steel basket. It looks like an IDQ but has a double stacked motor. Not sure how many are floating around out there, but I want one or two more. Give me a PM if you can help me out, thanks.
  12. I just ordered a skar zvx 15 and didn't know what kind of box to make. So I figured who better to get deminsions that the owner Kevin who has a zxv15. If anyone could help me I'm really intrested in acquiring the deminsions and tuning of Kevin zvx15 box!!! Thanks...
  13. I'm curious to know that if an alpine mrp-m1000 (1000watt peak) amplifier will successfully push 2 JBL 15"s (1200watt peak) without any distortion/crackles but still hit hard. Wired to a 2 or 4 ohm load also?
  14. alright i have 2 options for what i can do with the box, 1. 3.94 cubic feet @ 32 hz with 3 4" wide areo ports= about 37 inches of port area 2. 3.54 cubit feet @ 34 hz with 4 4" wide aero ports = about 50 inches of port area Can anyone explain pros and cons of either, weaknesses and strengths. SPL or for trying hairtricks? and i can tune the amps subsonic frequency 7 below the box tuning or is it 3?
  15. Hey all anyone have experience with the Rockford Fosgate RFP2215 I recently bought two used ones off a guy and want to recone them or at least one but it doesnt seem that there is a kit for them at least I wasnt able to find one. I was able to find some HX2 recones but not HE2 anyone know of a place where I can get a good recone kit for a fair price (under $100) also I live in eastern Canada so shipping has to be factored in as well as border fees etc
  16. Hello there guys, the tittle is pretty much my question.. i'm upgrading next month and i am stuck between the two subs. since i am across the pond in the UK, we really have only 1 legit distributor of sundown audio(Wayne from Hz Audio UK), the rest are a joke, with old stock, and overpriced.. I first saw the ZV5 for 850 English pesos,and was absolutely in love, but then i saw the NSV3 for 10 English pesos cheaper across the range, and that's when i got lost, isn't the NSV3 better? if so then, why is it cheaper?and there seems to be no thread on ZV5 vs NSV3 whatsoever. i'm probably going to have either a 15 or 18, not sure yet! the box will be slot ported ~6-7.5cu.ft tuned between ~25-30hz The NSV3 should theoretically be better? its weirdly got a wider but shorter magnet,yet stands taller than the ZV5, and i heard they both share the same VC and cone assembly. i'm planning to put 5-8k regardless of which sub, my priority is lows and SQ What are your thoughts ? really appreciate any help
  17. QUICK QUESTIONS I PRAY SOMEONE KNOWS... I JUST BOUGHT A PAIR OF BRAND NEW CVX 15'S AND I HEARD ABOUT THE BREAKING IN PERIOD, MY QUESTION IS... IS IT REALLY NECESSARY TO WAIT??? WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE IF YOU WAIT??? AND IF I HAVE TO OR SHOULD WAIT HOW LONG SHOULD IT BE BEFORE I CAN FEED THEM WHAT THEY'RE BEGGING ME FOR??? LAST BUT NOT LEAST WHAT IS A PERFECT TUNING FREQUENCY TO GET THE MOST OUT OF MY CVX 15'S??? THE SETUP IS A BRUITS 2400.1 SUPER CLASS D AMP WITH A SUPER BASS PROBOX HAVING 3.25 CUBIC FT PER CHAMBER IN A 2001 VW JETTA WAGON.
  18. So im stationed at kadena with Stanbro and Bre2ts and let me say they helped me out alot. Been on this site lurking and watching for awhile just thought i'd actually start posting ish. This isn't really a build log since i didn't really build the box. Stanbro and Bre2ts can take the bragging rights for that. I just basically put it in my trunk. All my wiring is KnuConceptz. I have a yellowtop Optima upfront and a xs3400 in the back maybe I need to switch them around idk. Big3 done also. Really no goals just wanted some bump started off with a single power acoustic mofo 12 and a sundown1200 Planning on new sub amp after i visit home in June. Also need to get this bish sound deadened. Gonna try to upload some pics bare with me i dont post often. What is a good image hosting site photobucket is sucking donkey dick right now. sub amp- sundown 1200 4chan-Kenwood eXcelon XXV-02A components- rockford fosgate T2652-S i think bought em from stanbro. Headunit- an older kenwood model
  19. I had my 4 SKAR ZVX D1 15's since October of 2013, the DDX's came out last month, I wanted to change my setup a bit, I now have 4 D4 DDX 15's, the subs dropped right in the box, they look great in it also, I added the "DDX" to the dust cap & removed the magnet boots by my suggestion of my youngest son, been playing only 3 days they sound great so far I'm gonna break em' over time... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j35liwZ7G9I&list=UUtswTQOpcCTsutA-08KrZEA
  20. Hey guys, up for sale I have my tight (well use your imagination)! You can also call or text me @ (717) 679- 6682. to see pics of what Im working with REAAAALLLY would prefer local hookups.
  21. Hey whats up everyone? I am looking at upgrading my 2 12" Q Power Deluxe's to 4 15 Deluxe's. I got 2 12" Q Power Deluxe series subs and I am pushing 2500rms to them, While they are surprisingly taking the power like champs I am looking to upgrade to 4 15" Q Power Deluxe's. Only problem is the Deluxe's only come in D4 subs. I wouldn't be able to run 4 D4's at 1 ohm. I need 4 D2's. So as much as I want to stay with Q Power look like I am going to have change brands so I can get 4 D2's to run at 1ohm. So I wanted to stay with Q Power because I want a system that the everyday person can afford but still compete and carry home a trophy with. I will be competing in the SPL lanes also so this is really an SPL build for my Tahoe. I will be running aero ports on the box instead of the traditional wooden slot port. I want something different and hopefully a little better performing. I will post pics of some boxes I came up with in torres. I will post the Aero Port box and the Slot Port box below. I will adding another Soundstream rub2500.1D to the one I got so I can strap them and run 5k. Also will be adding 2 more batts just so the electrical wont struggle. I will build the box and add the subs before I up my power and electrical. First off does anyone have any D2 15" subs that are around $100-$115? I am looking for something that can handle 1250w rms daily for when I run 5K to them. The 2 12" Q Power's I got now are rated at 700rms but 1500 peak and are taking the 2500w really well. All the subs I have been pricing are $200+. Looking to stay under 500 for all 4 15's. For SPL wouldn't 4 15's post higher scores than 2 18's? if not please correct me so I wont be wasting money on a system that wont post anything near 145 in the lanes. To reach a 145 if I really HAVE to save more and spend more on subs then just let me know. The goal is a 145 @ 35-40hz. Tuning: I am thinking around 30-32hz and have the box around 15.5ft*3. Aero Port: Slot Port: Thanks for any opinions or any help -James
  22. I've always been curious as to if carpeting a box just helps aesthetically, or if it helps acoustically as well.? All input will be respected and honored!
  23. I've decided on buying a Fi Q 15, I just need help on finding an amp that would be best suited for it. I have a Treo amp that pushes 1000 watts that i'll use to break it in.
  24. Hello people, Does anyone have or know the dimensions of the sundown team 15? I'm trying to build a box but can't seem to find the specs on the sub -Thank you
  25. Quick hair trick on the new 15's. The wall hasn't been made air tight yet, so hoping to move more air in the coming days. Running the subs on a Powerbass XA-3000D at 1 ohm. Box is tuned to 28 hz. I haven't metered it yet
