  2. Hey there, I have two 15" Earthquake DBXI subwoofers that are currently in a sealed enclosure and I'm looking to go ported. My car is a 2003 Monte carlo - My amp is an Alpine 1k - The trunk space available is 36" wide - 31" Deep - 16" Tall The subwoofers are 6 3/8" from the bottom of the mounting bracket to the bottom of the magnet if that helps I listen to a lot of rap (Gucci Mane, Future, etc) and I'm a huge fan of low bass (Decaf <3) but I'd still like to be able to handle mid range bass also Im not opposed to any style of box I Just want it to sound better Please let me know if you need any more info! Will appreciate any help someone can give!
  3. I'm wanting to go with 4 CVR 15s in a 04 Dodge Ram. I don't need to hear anything about kicker so keep your whining about kicker to yourself. I just need some ideas on a new box for them so if anyone could help I would appreciate it.
  4. This build log will be coming soon, right now I am currently in the design stage. I would love to have your guys input on aesthetic features to add. Basics Two Alpine Type R, each gets a separate chamber with its own port Box tuned to 25hz Aesthetics Black Vinyl with White accents Blue LEDs that will light up the following Apline logo etched into acrylic Frosted acrylic rings around subs glowing ports Anything else you guys thing would look cool on this box?
  5. Hello everyone I'm stuck on wat to run between three 18zv3's or four 15 zv3's. Both setups will have the same size enclousure which will be about 12 cubes after woofer and port displacements. Roughly about 190 to 200 square inches of port . Amplifiers are two crescendo bc3500s strapped @1 ohm. I want interchangeable ports, one for 38 hz and one for 32hz. Also stuck on wether to run aero ports or slot ports . I read that aero ports can get you louder but are expensive. I was told I would need either four 8 inch or seven 6 inch aero ports. I mean is it really worth the extra money or will slot ports work just as well. And this will be going in a jeep Cherokee. My available space is 43 w. 22h. 34L. Any help will be much appreciated.
  6. I'm on a major budget and can't go any higher in price. But I have a Mazda B4000 extended cab truck and I'm going to power either set up on 1200 watts. Which would be louder and hit the lows nice? I have up to 10FT*3 of box space to play with
  7. I don't have my subs quite yet, but I want to know how i can install my car radio in my room. I've seen people use computer power supplies but only like single 12's. Would it be safe to do that with 2 15's at about 2000 rms? I've thought to myself that if i just buy a car battery for this purpose how would I keep it charged at a stable voltage? Are there any other methods of safely doing this? This is a relatively temporary setup (about a year) until i can put it into my car, so i don't want to get to crazy with costs. Any help and advice is greatly appreciated.
  8. Wat are 45s used for in subs boxes, and are the metal thread rods better for bracing than regular wood
  9. Hey everyone! So I've got 6 Kicker L7 15's that I am going to run on 3 - Massive N4 Amps. Basically I need advice for the new box I'm wanting to build. I kind of have an idea of what i want it to look like BUT get stuck when it comes to port sizes. I attached a quick sketch. -This set up is NOT for my daily driver (2005 Cadillac Escalade ESV) and I listen to different music genres but mostly EDM and RAP. -I want them to pound and hit lows well when I turn em up -The maximum space I can use is: W:54in. x H:21in. x D:57in. so up to 32.88 cubic feet of gross volume, if it was one whole box. (The height can vary a few inches.) I was thinking of dividing this into 3 boxes within, for example, have one full piece top, bottom, sides and just have 3 walls inside dividing each set of 2-woofers. -The woofers and port(s) will be facing up. I know Kicker recommends up to 6 cu. ft. of net volume per sub for these subs for "SPL/DeepBass". Overall my questions are: -How many cubic feet should I make my box? -What frequency should I tune my box to? -Any other hints based on my needs? Thanks guys!
  10. First off thanks to anyone who takes the time to read this and offer a helping hand, secondly I am looking for someone knowledgeable and is very good with enclosure designs and getting loud to come up with a 6th order wall design for 4 skar evl 15's in my santa fe. Ive tried a couple free programs but I haven't been any good at making it work. If someone wouldn't mind helping ill get the measurements together as soon as tomorrow. I also don't mind paying a few dollars for the help either. Thanks in advance!
  11. Trying not to start a VS thread but I'm stuck here. I'm doing a budget build for my Mazda B4000 and I want to know which will be a better and louder choice. EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS 2 Soundqubed SDC 2.5 15s or 4 MB Quart ONX304 12s Running on 1400-1600 watts Opinions? Are there any other better options?
  12. So the temperature dropped to about -7 last night when I was getting off work and my car had been sitting for a good 8 hours in the parking lot. When I turned on my system I could barely hear the subs at all. I opened up the trunk and saw that the subs were insanely stiff, is this something that happens to other people in the winter too or could I have a leak in my trunk? I just bought these subs . I was thinking maybe it could be the electronics inside the amp?
  13. So I'm looking for some dimensions for building a box for two alpine type r's dual 2 ohm there 750 rms each but im trying to build it for a 1997 ford explorer xlt 4 door i dont want to build a huge box because i have to be able to fit it in a car to take it to the explorer but i want it to have a bigger port then it calls for some people where telling me i should make it 8 cubes but that is way to big this is my offroad toy im putting it in only drive it in the winter time and on trails so im gonna use L brackets to hold the box down i have a rockford t1500 that im hooking them up to i just need help with what i should kind of box I should build i heard birch is good wood but im in a budget with this build so need some help

  15. I have a 1 ohm stable amp and a pair of kicker l7 15's dual 4 ohm, I had them running off a kicker zx.2500.1 at 2 ohms but recently sold that amp to my cousin who just bought a hcca and got a good deal on it. So I have another amp right now which is a 5500 watt amp, 3200 rms at 1 ohm and I just wanted to see if you guys could help me wire it down to 1 ohm. I've found bunch of diagrams but everybody keeps saying no its not right, yes it is right, no it isn't. So i'm asking you, what's the correct way to 1 ohm? Thank you!! Also when it comes to the amp, I have a LPF, Bass EQ, Subsonic, and Gain control, what would be the best way to tune? Power acoustik 5500.1 bamf.
  16. Being kind of a noob with car audio still i have a question. Im saving up for two soundstream splx 15's dual 2ohms at 1250rms. With those being the subs im saving for im trying to find a good monoblock amp. My question is i've seen amps that say 2500w rms x 1 channel, does that mean it distributes half of that 2500w to both subs giving each 1250w? I've also seen amps that only say 2500w rms, and nothing about it being one channel. Should i be looking for one that doesnt say anything about the " x 1 channel" or is an amp that says 2500w rms x 1 channel exactly what im looking for? Also im wondering about getting one amp for each subwoofer, what are the pros/cons about doing that and how would i hook them up. Thank you for sticking with me and any help is appriciated.
  17. I'm almost done with my new system. I have 4 cvr dual 4ohm 15s for right now. I have a QZA4100D pushing them and everything is wired down to .5 ohm. I'm waiting on wires to come in so I can upgrade my old ones.
  18. im designing and very soon building a wall for 4-HDC4 15s and would like to learn about putting 45s in all the corners to "improve airflow". now i do plan to coat the entire inside with resin and sand to either 3000 or 4000 grit for smooth as glass finish for those extra few db. but wanted to see if adding the 45 will improve the db at all, or lower port noise or anything. i have a 3D render on google sketchup of the wall and i can upload pics if requested. about the wall: -4 HDC4.0 15s -2 Q1-4500D.1 amps -16.75ft^3 net volume before woofer displacment -270in^2 port area 20" deep for 36hz tuning. -All walls will be 2x4s with mdf inside and some internal bracing -walled from the B-piller back in a 2004 jeep grand cherokee 4.7L v8 plain with no 45s render with the 45s
  19. Alrighty, figured I would just start a build thread in the Skar Audio board. This one is gunna take a while to get done, but that is what us college students have to do. Anyways, this is going to be a full skar audio build up, planing on doing skar components in front, coaxials in the back, 1 Skar SK 1500.1, and 2 Skar VVX v2 15"s in a ported box. Going to be tuned at 31hz. All home built/installed and self designed box. Just a good setup in a car that you wouldn't give a second look.
  20. I am looking to be purchasing two 15's. I was looking at two different subwoofers. Audioque HDC3 15s Kicker L7 15s Which one will be louder. I am looking at sealing off my trunk too.
  21.

  22. I have 2 RF P3D2-15 in a 2004 avalanche midgate that are currently on a free air setup with my bed acting as a huge box. I have tried using a program to design my ported box but it failed miserably and sounded terrible so i threw it out. Now I need professional help, I already have around a 4" wide (may be wider not 100% sure ) 16" tall square hole cut for the port from the old box that i could use but I need the depth, width, port length, etc.. does anyone have a diagram they could give me or some tips? And the perfect height was also 18" so if that could also be a set factor that'd be great. Would like it tuned to the low 30s. Any help is appreciated thanks!
  23. ok, short and simple.... i have 4-hdc4 15s which i know can take 4k each fine... im stuck between the soundqubed Q1-4500d.1 and the crecendo BC3500d... both about the same price, i know the Q!-4500D.1 puts out more power over all but im trying to see if the BC3500d will put out 4k at .5 ohm? anyone have clamp tests? ill be running 2-320A alts, d6500 under the hood and 6 d7500s!!!! in the back so im not worried much about power. im sure i can keep voltage up fine. also im worried that the BC3500s dont strap so it will be harder to tune all the amps to the same power. and tuning
  24. A little info- I'm 18 years old, car audio is what i love doing and this was all built by me with the help of my dad on occasion. It took a lot of saving and planning and I'm still saving for subs and amps and more batteries right now. First of all, the turd this build is going in to. 2001 Explorer XLT 5.0 The plan is 6 Crossfire C7 15s on a Crossfire XS 8K.
