  1. Hi guys, I was wondering if any of you knew of any ways to create or anywhere to buy leds that pulsed with your music (really the bass). I know that wiring led strips to your amp isn't safe. So what other way can I do it?
  2. Hi everyone, this is my first post, so I thought I'd take a minute to say hi. I was hoping you guys could help recommend me a sub? I'm going to use a ported enclosure, I don't want to spend too much over 150, but specifically the kind of sub I want is a 12" and I want it to hit as low as or as close to as low as 20 hz. So far this is what I found that I may buy, I was hoping you guys could help recommend any others that could be better/cheaper. http://www.sonicelec...TS-W3002D4.html Edit: Oh yeah, and I'm planning on using 2 if that helps.
  3. I had my car taken in recently to do some work. When i picked it up the guy told me that I wired my VCM wrong for some reason. I fallowed the directions that Mechman sent me so I don't think I was wrong. A couple days after I got my car back the check engine and SRS light came on at the same time. I was going wait a little longer to take it back to my mechanic but now I have horrible voltage. I am running around 12.9 when at cruising speed. The only time it goes into the 14s is when I accelerate. When I am holding my speed it is right around 13. I was wondering what this could be from? I read that my SRS light can come on from my voltage being between 12.4 and 12.9 while running. I have an 2001 eclipse
  4. Why is the sp4 cheaper than the btl ?? Not sure if I can post this next question here about I give it a try please don't lock me Got Rockford 2500.1bd I was told to get two bl but I was looking in to the btl or sp4 what's best
  5. Just got my Rockford Fosgate T1s in today and i'm a complete noob since this is my first time installing mids and crossovers and what not. I took out my old stocks speakers and just have this wiring left in the door. What do i do cut it off and connect it to the crossover. I'm lost on this. Any help would be great. Thanks
  6. Just got a new HID Kit from Sharp hid and was going good until i turned one side on and it started smoking and getting hot so hot that i burnt my hand from the actual bulb. What can be the problem maybe? Came with a battery harness that i didn't used i don't know that could be it. Also the kit is a 55 watt and installing this on a 2000 Honda Accord. Thanks
  7. Well, to start it all of, I made a post very similar to this about 3 months ago. That was me just bored one day and hoping for things. now that isn't really the case, I have a steady job and i need something to look forward too while doing tedious work. Here is my "dream", I'm set on a kicker l7, 12" that's just the sub i want, its different and I've read its a very nice sub. I'd prefer make a box myself with my dad, as we don't really have much in common and these little projects are always nice, but if a pre-made one is really needed i guess i understand. For a head unit, I've already found one i like and that puts out good power, but of course expert opinions are always great; (Keenwood Kdcx396; http://www.amazon.co...wood+kdc+x396..) and for the speakers, I'm freaking lost. I had the dimensions but lost them, had the build written done but lost it during a fresh install of windows. i have a 2001 mercury sable ls sedan. Now that the stories out of the way, we are going to the quick version of this. Budget: Id like to spend less than $800, I'm going to call $800 the absolute cap, but i would greatly prefer working for less time to get this thing. Headunit: $139 http://www.amazon.co...nwood+kdc+x396. Speakers: ? (id like something that isn't overpowered by the sub, but runs without loosing quality when the sub actually hits, aswell as not needing a separate amp, and would just run off the head units rms) Sub: Any type of L7 12", i heard something about the 4ohm being better idk, like my name says i'm pretty clueless.. (a link to a good explanation of how ohm's work would be nice too (: .) Side notes: i know that i'm going to need a dash kit, i've got that part figured out, but if anyone has suggestions on that aswell its appriciated. Finally, i appreciate all time given here and am not going to abandon this thread like i did the last one. Thanks to anyone who replys (: Oh, and if this build isnt possible with $800 just tell me please, and I'm in Ohio if that has anything to do with choices on stores or shipping etc.
  8. Any suggestions for a 12" sub that handles double bass, just as well as rap? I need sound quality.
  9. Okay I need help deciding which is better, dc level 5s or Rockford fosgate t2s, I know where to order the t2s but I can't find any website to order the DCs, I'm wanting to get 4 15 inch t2s but all the videos on YouTube show the DCs. Are stupid loud n I wanna know where to order some and the prices...any help?
  10. I fried one of my sub amps, so im pulling them both out and going with a single 2channel amp. I need help deciding what to get. Im on a VERY tight budget, $100, maybe $150 absolute tops, and would like to get the most power output for my money as possible. For the near future im less concerned with quality and more about wattage. Im thinking of getting a Lanzar MXA284, its fused at 140amps, which is more than other amps at the price. Does anyone else have any suggestions for an amo with the same / more power for around the same price? (dont suggest amps over $150, cant afford it anytime soon).
  11. I have two l515 kicker solobarics dual 2 ohm and they are wired to 2 ohms on a kicker zx1500.1 amp. Everything is wired correctly and the gains are set with the dd-1. So everything is exactly how it should be. I re wired my subs with some nicer 10awg speaker wire yesterday and hooked it all back up and once I started playing it loud for a while my subs got the bunt voice coil smell, I double checked to make sure it is all wired the right way and it is. The gain is still set where it has been, but I'm still getting the smell, it didn't start till after I re wired the subs so I'm thinking the wiring may be the cause. Im not sure. Help me out!
