  1. Hey guys I am looking to start a new build in my 2008 Tahoe. I am set on 4 SA 15's. I was wondering if anyone could lead me in the right direction to get some ideas for an enclosure. I will have the whole trunk to work with. (Behind the rear passenger seat, third row has been removed) Any replies are appreciated !
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. ok baiscly im wokring on a plan to build into my jeep, i just dropped the money on 4 15" HDC4 and 2 q1-4500d.1 amps... i was wondering what all would be needed in front stage to keep up with that at full tilt? i only have the front doors of a 2004 jeep grand cherokee to work with. so far im thinking 2-8" 8ohm crescendo PWX, a 6.5" 4ohm PWX and 2 FT1 4ohm tweets for EACH side. ill be running 2 Q4-90s. Ratings: SPEAKERS 8"pwx 200rms each 6.5pwx 150rms each ft1 tweet 80rms each AMP 4ohm-90rmsx4ch 2ohm-130rmsx4ch bridged 4ohm 260rmsx2ch wiring will go as listed..... LEFT DOOR 2-8" 8ohm PWX parallel to 4ohm on bridged 1/2 channel of amp 1 (260rms to the pair at 4ohms) 6" 4ohm PWX in channel 1 of amp 2 (90rms at 4ohm) 2-FT1 4ohm parallel to 2ohms on channel 3 of amp 2 RIGHT DOOR 2-8" 8ohm PWX parallel to 4ohm on bridged 3/4 channel of amp 1 (260rms to the pair at 4ohms) 6" 4ohm PWX in channel 2 of amp 2 (90rms at 4ohm) 2-FT1 4ohm parallel to 2ohms on channel 4 of amp 2 same on each door, just put to different channels VIEWS, THOUGHTS, ADVICE... all welcomed... i just wanna make sure that would be enough to keep up and hear the music or if im dead wrong. and any advice on good EQ's for the highs? and what i would tune it at. the subs will be tuned at 37hz 16.75ft^3 wall
  7. 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!
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. Alright ive been thinking about this and i want to build a box with two alpine type r 15s and i want them to be on top of the box and the port go across the bottom I have dimensions of w40, h22, d20 which comes out to 8 cubes i need to know how i should make the port depth and width cause im getting so confused on these port and box calculator websites i want it tuned from 28-33 htz i just need help with that and i want to make sure the box will fit in the back of my 97 ford explorer xlt 4 door
  11. 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
  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. 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!
  14. 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.
  15. 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?
  16. As of lately I've been having doubts about my system in regards to installing/putting more into it or just stopping and leaving it the way it is. I have a 2003 Chevy Tahoe with 2 Fi Q 15's on 2K watts. An under-sized Ported Box tuned to 30hz (probably is 4.5 cubes on 2 15's...really small). Stock alternator. 2 Batteries (still dips voltage though). Stock Bose mids + tweeters. Have NO sound deadener installed atm. Anyway I'm just going to list out the things i'd LIKE to do to the truck soon, but don't know how worth it it would be to do so, here it is: single or double layer Murder Mat in the entire truck, get clean+loud mids + highs, get a 7-8 cu ft Ported Box tuned to 33hz (have NO IDEA where port(s) should be - still facing trunk lid OR facing roof? - not to mention id like to keep my middle row seats), and possibly upgrade the alternator to a 250+ amp. My problem is if I decide to do even ONE of those things in that list, I figure i should do ALL of them just to have my system "perfect" as much as it can be and possibly compete hopefully one day soon. You can imagine to do all that it once would cost a decent amount of cash. There's a nerve-wrecking issue I'm having with the overall Sound Quality of my build atm. That would be the front 2 doors + windows rattling / making a heavy amount of unwanted tones. I figured 2 15's on only 2k wouldn't make that much bad noise, but it does in my truck. I literally have to press my leg against the door panel to bring those noises down to a cleaner level of sound. The lows arent as bad as the highs, but it still irritates the heck out of me. Well guys I know this is a pretty lengthy post but if anyone has any advice about sound quality, the box design + space in the vehicle, etc id really appreciate it. I'd HATE to just say that I'm done with the whole bass system after i put quit a bit of time and money into the truck already, but its almost coming down to that. Would anyone with sound-deadened systems be able to tell me how much the deadener helps with door panel and especially window noise? I appreciate whoever can offer anything, thanks in advance.
  17. This is an enclosure I have designed for two fi.x 15s. (in the mail. stoked!) there are 3 cubes per sub and I am shooting for 30Hz. I believe it will sound good but any suggestions are noteable.
  18. 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.
  19. So I recently decided to sell my old set up and buy new. My dilemma is that I can't decide wether I should go with 15 inch subs or 18's. This will be going in the back of a 2000 extended cab gmc Sierra. I'm going to be running a soundqubed 3500.1 on 2 subs for now at 12v. My plans are to buy 2 more and another amp by the end of summer and build a wall. I've decided on PSI platform 2 subs in box tuned to 30Hz because I love that low end bass. I need some input from someone on this.
  20. i have an 01 tahoe with 4 rockford p3 12s. they sound good but i really want something that can hit the lows REALLY well. i have to rockford p1000x1bd amps. the birth sheet says they put out almost 1400 rms each. So basically im looking for the best sub around that power rating that truly excels on the lower end. enclosure size doesn't matter. sub size and price don't matter. i was thinking about 15s because i listen to a lot of rock and metal in edition to rap and stuff and i have heard that 18s have a hard time keeping up with the fast bass drum of metal music. maybe that's a load of crap i don't know. so feel free to school me on that as well. any suggestions are welcome.
  21. 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
  22. 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?
  23. So i ditched the HDC 18 and went for 2 SDC 2.5 15s on my pick up truck, and I was wondering what your guys' opinions are. It will be running on 1400 watts rms Width-50" Height- 23.5" Depth-19" Displacement after bracing and subwoofers- 7.87ft^3 Port Height-17.5" Width-7" Length-29" Port area per foot- 15.57in2 Inside will be fiberglassed for extra strength, subs and port are facing upwards, port on driver side. What do you guys think?
  24. Hello everyone new to the forum want to get peoples opinion on some brands and sizes I am looking into doing I first big build but aren't sure which route to go and wanted some help (if you don't mind). I currently am running 2 Orion 12.4 @ 2 ohms two hifonics brx 2400 and kinetic 2400. what I want to do is go bigger and louder im looking in to Fi sp4s and also sundown caught my eye. is anyone familiar with any of these brands??? Size either 2 18's 4 15's (setup don't know yet) the base is a 2008 jeep commander with the third row pulled out and the center seat on the second row also pulled out.
  25. 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.
