  1. This will be my first post here on the site. Im currently running the American bass xfl 12" subs in a q bomb pro box off a hifonics brz 2400.1 with a red top under the hood in a 95 Avalon. So I need help designing a box where my subs face the rear but my port is facing the cab. I want the port in the center bc I want it blowing through the "arm rest hole" of the back seat. I will be posting a few drawing of what I have drawn up. no measurements yet, just ideas im playing with. This box I've designed is an L shaped ported box with the port in the back. what do you guys think??? will it work?? *******The blue represents the air flow. I also drew braces in the back....
  2. What's your guys opinion on the american bass hd 15 subwoofer. I don't know much about the company but i stopped by a local shop and a guy was talking them up pretty good and wanted to sell me one for $500. Is that a good price? How is the quality? Is it worth the $500 being asked?
  3. Another fun year putting this together. I did get the inspiration to do this from Steve SMD Meade, and have been doing it the last 5 years around Halloween. I waited until the 28th of October to build it for a MECA audio competition. It definitely turned some heads and people loved it. It surprised a few with how loud it got during some demos. MECA measured at the head rest and it did a 137. Not too bad. Also, earned an award for loudest single 12" setup and loudest in my class. I wasnt there for the second day of the comp, so not sure if there was anyone else in my class. A W is a W i suppose. We clamped my power and apparently this pumpkin caused severe box pumpkin rise and it took my amp from 1ohm to 6ohms! Severe loss of potential power out of my Rockford Fosgate T1000.1BDCP amp. I took it to Audio Anarchy and put the meter in the kick and did a 139. Big E wanted to see what it would do in the port/inside the pumpkin. 162!!!! I played it hard until I could hear a couple of the bolts come loose and duck tape start to flap.
  4. Currently have a Crescendo BC2000 powering 2 XFL 12s in a box 15in tall x 37in wide x 21.5in deep with a port 25.25in in length and 4.75in wide. I am trying to get the loudest I can on music with this setup. Wondering if a new box is going to get me there. The max dimensions being 15in tall x 36in wide x 30in deep. Thank you for any help its much appreciated
  5. Hey guys right now I'm in the process of designing a new box but I'm not sure If I want my port on the drivers side, or in the center. Currently my box is firing forward sealed off with the port on the drivers side. It gets nasty low with both front windows down. Will having a center port change that? Im sure it will but I just dont know How or What its going to change.

  11. Hi so I was looking at a AB VLF 110.1 on craigslist which was their now discontiued 2k. They simply removed that wattage line, they still have the 100.1 and 120.1 etc. I went into researching whether they do rated or not and found some comments saying they don't/are rated at 16v, and some that they have been clamped for more than rated (although brobably improperly in VA not W). I then realised they use the same exact boards (a common thing) as many well known and renowned manufacturers. example, a VFL 1100.1 a DC 9.0K the dillemma, the dc is rated at 9000 watts (albiet underrated), and the VFL is rated at 12,500 watts. Is the AB built with THAT much better components or is it just overrated by 30%. Thanks for the responses.
  12. Hey guys I have had this amp for a while, It was in my friends car for years with no issues, then I purchased his whole setup when he got rid of the car. I used the amp in my car for several months and then one day It just lost output. Turns on like it wants to play, doesnt protect. No pop or any signs of plugging anything into the speaker outputs. Since the amp isnt externally fused I cant check that possibility. I took all the panels off to see if I can get the board out easily and thats not possible due to all the epoxy (stock picture until I can get a decent one) The board looks immaculate still. No signs of any major failures or blown components, I dont want to hack away to get the board out for no reason. Upon closer looking I see a jumper socket in between the power inputs and speaker inputs (left in picture above) I have no clue what that could possibly be for, nothing plugs into that from the chassis or side panels. I dont know much about newer technology in these incredibly tiny and powerful amps. Is it possible that that jumper is just a "reset" socket or something they use for testing? Any input anyone has would be greatly appreciated!
