I've been thinking about doing a car trunk build next with 2 12's on a BC 5500 and deadening everything with Alpha Damp Deadener. Thing is: what would be best for LOW-end in a car build, having the enclosure and subs facing the Back of the trunk with the rear seats folded forward? Or, having the subs "sealed off" forward in the trunk? Im allll about Ground Pounding lows, but dont know what would sound best. The other thought that crossed my mind was just saying screw the rear seats and building a wall with 2 18's but i dont really want it to have to come to that. Ok either way im sure with 6000 watts and plenty of sound deadener the system will be nice, but id just like your guys' opinions on the whole situation (especially those with trunk builds themselves, experienced people please, and those who have big wattage like that), thanks!
I want to buy a new car in the next few months but just can't decide on these two vehicles: 1. Subaru Liberty Spec.B Sedan (3.0L 6 Cylinder 180kW (241HP) Engine) 2. Volkswagon Transporter T5 (2.5L 5 Cylinder Turbo Diesel 128kW (171HP) Engine) One day I decide I have to get the van, the next I'd love the thought of having the Subaru. Both vehicles are priced about the same. The Subaru is obviously faster, but the question is, is it really necessary to have a fast car over a practical van that I wanted to do a whole build in the back with power inverters running televisions and home theater. The Subaru I can comfortably carry 5 people in which is great because I often have many people in my car, the van only has two seats in the front, and if I decided to fit more in the back they would be separated from the front since I also was planning a subwoofer wall. In the Subaru Sedan I calculated I have room to fit my two SP4 18's. I should also note I have no problem driving a van as my daily vehicle. I drive vans for work all the time so that's no issue. Keen to hear anyone's opinions on this, Thanks.
2Loud @ Virginia Tech 2Loud @ Virginia Tech is a student run car audio competition team Mission: Our mission is to promote audio engineering at the college level. How we complete our mission: Our hand on experience with car audio equipment will provide our members with a better understanding of audio engineering. Goal: Our goal is to design, build, test, and tune a car audio system for Sound Pressure Level (SPL) Competition. Approach: First, we will define our constraints for competition (i.e. Cost, Class of competition, and number of woofers, etc). Using programs such as AutoCAD, Inventor, and Torres Box Tuning Calculator, we will design a speaker enclosure. Once an optimal enclosure is designed, we will construct the box. We will install the box, speakers, and amplifiers accordingly. When the system is in, we will test the system for optimal tuning and SPL output. Finally, we will take our car to compete in car audio competitions. Vehicle: 1990 Honda Civic DX Hatch The car was purchased by the members, for the members. Upgrades to the vehicle as of now: Pioneer MVH Headunit Sony XSGS 6.5” Speakers Front Sony XSGS 6x9” Speakers Rear Big 3 upgrade with XS Power 1/0 cable 1 run of 1/0 NVX OFC wire to the rear Secondary Knetik HC1200 Battery Stinger 5 Farad Capacitor Stinger Volt Meter 12" Alpine Type X Subwoofer (not for use in competition) Atrend Prefab Ported box (not for use in competition) Alpine PDX1000.1 Amp (not for use in competition) Planned competition for this semester: Compete in the IASCA/IdBL Car SPL competition -Class 1 competition Hatchback -2 12” subwoofers in a ported box, under 2,500 watts Planned Equipment: TBD We have committed ourselves to the Class 1 of IdBL Competition Ideally we have 2 12” subwoofers in a ported box, with one amplifier Sponsors/ Funding: TBA At the moment we are 100% student funded. We are a new organization and have the potential to acquire funding from the university. However, we were not officially founded until after the funding request deadline. This is our official build log. We will be updating with information regarding the car audio build as we go. I look forward to keeping this updated and would love feedback. If you would like to contact me directly, please direct message me. Thank you! Mark Soler, President 2Loud @ Virginia Tech As of now, we do not have any sponsors. If it proves that we cannot afford to build the planned system this semester, I will be donating my system from the Galant build to the cause. That would put is in Class 2 competition at only 3200 watts, however it will be better than nothing.
