  1. Hello! I have a BMW 523i E39 sedan that I think has the most basic sound system offered in the E39 which I want to upgrade. The stereo is currently always off as the stereo or antenna isn't working cause it can't get a good connection to any channel. The stereo also has the common E39 pixel problems and it lacks a way to connect the phone which I want to do. I'm therefor planning on upgrading the audio in the car. I would like to get a double din stereo with Apple Car Play which would allow me to use Google Maps along with playing music from my phone. This is my first car and first stereo upgrade and really don't know what's good and what isn't but I'm doing all the research I can. Audio quality is my top priority and if the stereos with Apple Car Play are noticeably worse than ones without I'll opt for audio quality rather than Car Play. I also want to upgrade the speakers and add 1-2 subwoofers to the car. I want to be able to play with high volume but audio quality and clarity are my main priorities. I've tried to do as much research as possible lately and I have a hard time finding what the best combinations for a set budget is as this is my first stereo upgrade and I don't know which brands are good etc yet. I'm now wondering if any of you guys here have any recommendations in different price ranges that you'd be willing to share? I have three different budgets in mind as I don't know how much I want to spend yet but they are $500-1000, $2000-2500 and $3-4000. I know that this is a very broad question that might not get many answers but I wouldn't get any if I don't post it so I made the decision to try Thanks in advance!

  3. Hello everyone I had a shop custom build me one and told them i listen to rap, decaf and would like it tuned low. It seems that it is tuned pretty high because the box is very peaky and wont play anything below about 36-37hz. So i decided on trying to build my own box to get the results im looking for so i downloaded some programs and have been playing around with hornresp and winisd trying to design me a box for my 4 skar evl 12s. I cant seem to get the results im looking for on the graph so im wondering if anyone thats good at designing boxes could help me. This is my very first design and honestly have no clue what im doing haha! Im wanting a box that plays low and hard trying to do some hair tricks if possible.
  4. In a quest to find a powerful amp under $75 for the $150 SPL challenge, I came across this amp which seemed too good to be true. I've never heard of DTI, but this amp promises 2500 watts at 1 ohm, 14.4 volts at 2% THD. If true, it would be the best watt per dollar amp I've ever tested...but, is it true? Heck, even at 1/2 of rated power it would still be a supremely good deal. Let's take a closer look at the amp and try it on the Amp Dyno. Is it the deal of the century or just a bad joke?

  7. I am trying to build a box for 4 Sundown Sa6.5s on winisd but i cant seem to get a configuration that doesn't have a ridiculous rear airport velocity. I am building this box to go under the rear seat of my '15 Sierra Double Cab. The shape of the floor makes it hard to do a rectangular port so i am trying to use an aero port. Please help me come up with a config that will work for my application
  8. Hey everyone, currently in the market for some new subs for daily use. Looking at either one level 5 15 on a 3.5k, or 2 xl elite 12’s on a 2k each. what would be better in your opinion, and why? thank you
  9. Hi guy's , just bought a Brand new JVC DRVN 12inch (Black cone) , going to run at 4ohm as is a single voice coil , off a 250 rms jvc amp . Please help me design a box !!! Medium size , Good for music but also hitting low for some shake (Y) maybe 34hz or 36 what you reckon ?? Want a basic rectangular port Please can someone advise me on box dimensions . Either inches or mm for each piece , send me a link to a good box , and help me figure a good HZ tune . Thanks guys Ollie(16) from New Zealand Subwoofer - http://www.jvc.co.nz/CS-G1200.html Subwoofer spec's - http://www.jvc.co.nz/assets/pdf-manual/CS-GD1200.pdf
  10. 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....
  11. what my current system is while I'm in the process of buying and receiving all the new toys that are lined up for the future . http://youtu.be/zA2zhb_z5Hg This will just be a note for progress for further on down the road to show how much i've grown and built up.
  12. Whats going on my friends? I have tried searching through the thread on my question and have found one link that is almost a year old and not sure if anyone besides me has happened to come across it. I posted on there but since the thread has been dead for so long, I am sure that it wont be seen for sometime. My question, I am looking for a good design that will give me nasty loud lows and give good spl. As the title says, those are the subs I am running. I know these subs can achieve decent levels as i had a set back in 96 @ 500Rms each on a gothic 1600 bridged and nailed 142.2. All in a full size custom van. I am working with a set of 12D2 @ 2ohm on a mrx m240 and you can take a look at my pictures and see how it looks... i have my old m1000 in the pics and have redone the wiring so a new pic will be posted soon showing what it looks like now. ( Before you say anything.... I will be getting rid of the Cap as it is useless for my current setup) I would like to keep the subs facing up, and have thought of inverting them as well if it wont totally kill SPL... but I would also like to vent on the drivers side... Either up or to the front... again.... which ever would be better to achieve decent numbers at the meter. I am going to be mounting two kinetic 2400's with it so my measurements will change from what i thought i was going to be able to use... as for now these are the dimensions i have to work with. i have 62.5" side to side. 18" tall and 20" front to back... i am looking for something that will get low and nasty... I am not sure the dimensions of the 2400 so if anyone knows.... please throw in a bone so i can get a better clue of what siz my box is going to be. i could get the smaller 600 or 800 and maybe mount them in the side panels under my xcab windows but still i dont have dimensions and with the power i will need on my m240 i think either of those would be a waste... or should i just mount 2 1200's under my hood and bump up to a 300 amp alternator and call it good? I have done some smaller builds and never had to worry about the things that i am doing now so bare with me on it... I am not completely noob when it comes to wiring.. as i never let anyone else ever install my equipment... just looking for assistance on a box design and maybe placement of secondary batteries and maybe the best way to fuse them to prevent damage to my subs and amps. Thanks everyone!!!
  13. I have 2 12inch DB drive wdx 2k subs that I want to make a box for now the specs say per sub 2.0 cu ft for sealed and 2.7 cu ft for ported. Now if I build it ported does that mean each sub needs 2.7 cu ft or can the whole box be 2.7 cu ft????
  14. My good friend Aaron, aka Psyph Morrison, has never had a real system in any of his cars before. If you don't know who Psyph is (pronounced Sife), look him up on itunes, spotify or any other music app out there. Youtube as well. I have known him over 10 years and even worked with him on his last 3 albums as an executive producer. Ok, now that is out of the way, the reason he is getting a system is because well, the entire time i have known him and worked with him making music, especially music with a lot of bass, he has never had a system of his own. I don't know anyone who has had more car issues than him so we really never made it to the discussion of a system. Not too long ago he picked up a 2002 Honda Accord 4 door. I knew right then he has a reliable vehicle finally. So i offered to slap some beat in it for him. Watching him pull up, slapping his own music in a (not so great) stock sound system was really bothering me. How can my boy ride around like that if he know's ME? Long story cut short...his car is at my shop for a few weeks while i figure out what i am going to do. I have NO "plans". I just want to get him some good equipment, set it up proper and make him happy! ****NOTE, anything you see here is subject to change as i am totally freestyling this. Trying to just make it work. First i stopped by Arden Audio in Sacramento Ca. They always have what i need in stock over there and if they don't i can get it same or next day. I decided to pick Psyph up a new head unit first and foremost. I also got the dash kit and wiring harness to go with it. Grabbed some SkyHigh 16ga OFC speaker wire to run to the doors. The system will consist of (so far) Pioneer DEH X7800 BHS Head Unit Rockford Fosgate Punch 1000.1 (BASS) Rockford Fosgate Punch 300.2 (Highs) (2) Rockford Fosgate P3 12" subs (ported enclosure) (1) Set Rockford Fosgate T2 6.5" separates SMD Fuse / Grounding Blocks Mechman 1/0 OFC Power Wire Skyhigh 12 and 16ga Speaker Wire I already had a P300.2 but i got him a matching 1000.1 to go with it. These P3 12" subs are not brand new but might as well be. They are in brand new condition! They are my old ones. This box was already finished and just hanging around the shop. I KNOW it sounds good so it should do great in his trunk! The trunk floor is at an angle so i have to make a platform and flatten it out some so the box sits level.

  16. hey my mids and highs are playing bass and when I turn up the volume it all distorts and sounds horrible, it was working fine with no bass playing through the mids and highs until we changed over the sub they started to play bass. we didn't change any settings on the head unit just took one sub out and put another in. any ideas what could have happened?

  21. Wylie carving pumpkins the other night my friend told me I should put one of my SQ 8's in a pumpkin. So the next day I went out and got a pumpkin to make my new "box". And since I have nothing else to do right now I figured I would put it up one here. Step 1: get a pumpkin with a flattish side to mount the sub on. Step 2: cut a hole out for the sub. Step 3: scoop out all those insides, but save the seeds bc those must be roasted and eaten. Step 4: file down to get the best fit and mount the sub in the "box". And there it is, the Halloween bass pumpkin. It is roughly .75 cuft and sounds great! Video will be up later today of it playing off of a MB Quart amp. Hope everybody have a happy Halloween!
  22. I don't have my subs quite yet, but I want to know how i can install my car radio in my room. I've seen people use computer power supplies but only like single 12's. Would it be safe to do that with 2 15's at about 2000 rms? I've thought to myself that if i just buy a car battery for this purpose how would I keep it charged at a stable voltage? Are there any other methods of safely doing this? This is a relatively temporary setup (about a year) until i can put it into my car, so i don't want to get to crazy with costs. Any help and advice is greatly appreciated.
