  2. I recently bought a crescendo 3500 for my American bass hd 12s dual 1ohm I know they’re underpowered and noticed my clipping light comes on yet I can hear the subs distorting I haven’t tuned the amp quite frankly never tuned any in the past yet never blown a sub or amp just wanted to know if a little clipping is bad?
  3. I’m buying 4 2ohm subs yet I’m putting them in two separate boxes I’m going to wire it down to 1 ohm but the problem is how would I do it since there’s two separate boxes?

    American bass xd12

    Can someone be nice enough to help me with a ported box plan for one American bass xd12 on 500 watts. It will be my first box build so something simple to follow. I found one for a sundown audio e12v3 I think it is...I know it' is not the exact sub but it' s a ballpark figure to go off of...any help is greatly appreciated. It's going in to a 14 hyundai sonata so the trunk is rather big so no space problems
  5. Installed a couple weeks ago my cpillar slide in wall For 6 ab xfl 1222s on 2 dc 5ks. 3 top on 1 dc5k @1.3 ohms and 3 bottom on another dc5k @ 1.3 ohms. Have blown the bottom middle woofer now twice. First time thing I went to hard on it being that it took months to finish and killed the coil. 2nd one was rushing to get it playing for slammology. Broke it in for 3 hours @ 40 and 30 hz on a dc5k @ 4ohns 900 something watts Went to install it the next day screwed up poked surround like a idiot. Fixed it with shoe goo Played fine all weekend till my 4th demo at slammology then that infernal slinky sub sound. What am I doing wrong? 1. this is my first wall 2. First time running 6 subs 3. First time running this kind of power and running 2 dc5k to 1 enclosure 4. Set amps with dd-1 to older 5k cause seemed to be lower of the 2 amps. Set with -5 db track 5. Gain matched both amps to the older 5k with cc-1 6.slide in wall is top L port 7. Almost seems like bottom 3 subs move more then top ones ( but not 100 percent on this ) 5 broken in subs and one new one as soon as I buy another one from ab. Please help I am pulling my hair out trying to figure this out and can't afford to keep replacing subs. Now have 5 good and 3 bad subs.
  6. Running 6 ab xfl 1222s on 2 dc 5ks and had one coil start to come undone. now I have 5 broken in subs and one new so what is the best and quickest way to break this sub in so I will be all good for slammology?
  7. Hello I am new to the box building world. I tried to make a box for these xr 15s I bought. It was like tuned wayy to high and I can't hear any kind of low notes. That's what's I'm trying to go for. I have a older grand cherokee so I have room. I'm just trying to figure out what I need to cut too. I was going to use 3/4 inch mdf. Im ringing a cheap amp at the moment. Just a ssl 5000 eco but was going to run a skar 2200 eventually.. I'm trying to make the box tunes fairly low like 30 to 32 hz if possible ! Pleasssseese help! I was going with subs up port firing toward hatch. Please let me know if you guys can help.
  8. I need some help, im building a box for my american bass hd 12. Im running on a jl audio jx1000/d putting out about 1200 watts cleanly on a 40 hz test tone. When looking for any information on building a box for that speaker, i couldnt find any. My speaker came with a spec sheet and that was it. I can post the spec sheets if it would help. The only information i could find online was that it was very similar to the old stiff style soundqubed hdc3's. Then when looking for those i came across a forum where someone said the optimum enclosure size would be 3 cubic feet net, with 18 square inches of port area per cube, tuned between 34-39 hz. Im just trying to find the optimum size box for that speaker for spl and sound quality. The box i have planned now is an aeroport box design. The external dimensions are 15"x17"x30" with a 6 inch aero 16" long. My question is ive never built an aeroport box before and im wondering what size diameter aero shoulf i use and how long should it be?
  9. Just finished my wall for 6 American Bass xfl 1222s on 2 dc 5ks Each set of 3 subs on a dc5k @ 1.3 ohms tuned with Dd-1 (-5db) and gained matched with a cc-1 Broke in the sub for around 2-3 hours with a dc5k @ 4ohms on a 40hz test tone and then 30hz test tone thru the dd app Just finished wall and have 5 subs broken in 1 wasn't so broke the one new sub then. Replaced sub with this new one I broke in for 3 hours seemed fine and was moving fine. So took it to slammology and was doing demos no issues then on 4th demo alsudden heard that infernal slinky sub noise. So my question for you experts one what did I do wrong to blow the sub and what could I have done to prevent this? What should my next step be? 1. replace the sub? And break it in complety this time before putting it in the wall 2. Send the subs out get reconed by Paul Pierce, psi, etc. With legit American coils and dual. 7s so they will take more power 3. Cut my losses and trade or sell the 5 good ab xfl 1222s and 3 blown xfls for 6 good 12in. subs that will take the Power.
  10. So I just swapped my old 2001 Honda Accord sedan with a new 2017 mazda3 hatchback. I need help finding a way to get deminsions for a box that I'm going to be making for my subs. I have 2 American bass xr12s left over from my old build in the Honda but the problem is I need space in the trunk because it sucks having to pack my rear seats with groceries and craming family members in who have decided they want to bring there big ass purses and back packs with them. So the trunk deminsions I've measured out are 42 inches wide, 24 inches deep, and 20 inches high. I learned from my last build that I want a sealed box but I'm not sure what I want to tuneing frequency to be. I'm open to using 1 sub in the mean time if need be. Also I'm curious that if I invert the woofers would I be able to fit both in. I'm hopeing to keep about 26 inches of width in the trunk. I'll be giving singer alts a call but If anyone knows where I can get an ho alt otherwise I would really appreciate it considering I'll be running about 1100-2200 watts off of my crescendo bc2000.
  11. Single 15 in a Dodge Mega Cab. Took some creative box design but it slams!! About 4 cubes and tuned to 34 hertz. Seats have to be down to allow for excursion. Seat just touches surround when it's up.
  12. So I purchased a 04 Jeep Liberty Rocky Mountain edition just recently and of course the stock sound system had to go lol. Right now the jeep has a 4" lift and some 31" tires on some M/T SideBiter wheels. Tinted 35% all the way around except for windshield which has a 35% 5" strip. Stock Radio (Lame) New Radio Okay here we go Sub box 2 15's in a 7ish cuft box tuned to around 30.5ish hertz. Kind of messy lol 2 american bass HD 15s dual 2 ohm Okay so I still got tons of work to do lol should have way more pics tomorrow. Right now the sub box has about 1/2 a gallon worth of fiberglass resin and all corners and joints where wood meets wood have 2 layers of fiberglass and to top it all off I bed lined the whole inside of the sub box.
  13. ***WALL STARTS ON PAGE 19*** Alright.. So basically, EVERYTHING is coming out. Literally the only equipment that'll be reused are the Singer alt, batts, HU, subs, and tweeters. Thats it.. like even the voltage meter is coming out. I wont have any progress for about a month when I go back home for summer break.. But I figured Id get this thread started.. The weather is warming up, so that can only mean one thing.. Heavier oil. Next, I got these in the mail.. Instead of sleeping at 1am what am I doing?
  14. I have two alpine type X's with a American bass vfl 4480 hybrid amp. I forget what model my head unit is but it has 5v pretty outs. I plan to put these in a 2002 Bonneville so I can have a car for music. Will the amp be enough to power both? Any tips or trick to get louder is always appreciated.

    American Bass xr series

    Anybody ever tried these subs out? They're rated at 1200 watts rms and priced at $180. Are they worth it in terms of quality and durability?
  16. I'm looking to get an amp to push 2 MTX Audio 9515-44s at 1ohm. They are both 1000 watts rms and wondering if the American Bass PH4000-MD would be a good match for the pair. If anyone knows if they are worth the money I would appreciate feedback. Gracias
  17. Sup Guyz, Names Rob from Hawaii, new here figured I would start a build log of my 2005 Mazda 3i. I have a long way to go but I am pretty happy with the way my system sounds right now. I don't compete the scene isn't that big where I live and I did the entire build on my own. Its nothing special compiled with things I have acquired over the years. My system right now it consists of - Head Unit - Pioneer DEH-X6500BT EQ - Clarion EQS746 Steering Wheel Interface - PAC SWI-PS Front Sound Stage - West Coast Customs/Diamond D6 X-Over running Polk DB Tweeters and WCC/D6 6x8 Mids Rear Fill - Pioneer TS-A6880R Sub stage- 2 DD1512a in 3.15cu box tuned to 38hz (This is actually a replica of the specs of the Attrend approved enclosure on DD's website ) Amps- Front & Rears on Alpine PDXF4 Subs Rockford Fosgate P1000X1D

    Rockford Fosgate vs. American Bass

    Hey all on this forum. I have a debate whether I want to use 2 old school Rockford Fosgate 1001BD power amps to push 2 MTX Audio 9515-44s or instead go for an American Bass PH-4000 MD to push them @ 1ohm. Power consumption isn't really a concern but I want to know if it's worth getting 2 RF amps or just having one amp to push them both.

    American Bass VFL 150.1

    I have an American Bass VFL 150.1. I have heard that this amp is underrated and will do a ton of power, and I have also heard that this thing will only produce around 2200 watts. I was just wondering if anyone has had actual experience with this amp? Has anyone ever had one clamped or one dyno'd? Thanks for the help!
