  1. Would i benefit from upgrading my alt.? The goal of course is to be louder and hit harder... Besides straining the system, electrical, alt.etc.. would it be a noticable difference in the a actual sound-bass db's... I Kno I'm not pushing the roughly 300ish amps to power my SKAR sk3500 and 2 DC lvl4 12's .. my setup is 120 ALT.. yellow top ... 0 gauge.. big 3. ...Would i benefit significantly in performance by buying 220 amp alt or a better battery like a XS d3400 or even both? Or would i just be buying upgrades to keep from frying everything in the future by straining what i already have?? Thanks in advanced
  2. 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. 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
  5. 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.

  8. So here's the deal guys, i've got room for 2 12's (but one higher quality one would be ok) and their corresponding box, the amp, and all the wiring. I need to know for about 1400 bucks what is the best complete setup combo(not powered subs , just individual components) that i can get for loud bass that still adds to sound quality. Anything you got would be fine, just need to know the subs and what to rms power them with all for 1400 bucks
  9. here is the btls closing doors for me...whats cant these things do..lol

  12. Well, I'm a poor college student.. And I had a few vector designs I made a while back.. Decided I would put some on some shirts and see what happens. And for the accord lovers: I'd link to the site and shirts, but I'm scared that would cause this to get deleted.. So I guess I'm asking you guys if you'd be interested in them at $12.40 each? I'll probably be making more soon, and I'm open to creating shirts for teams, etc.
  13. With 2 P3's running at 600 watts rms in a ported box, will this drown out the mids and highs and make the system sound shitty with too much bass? Or will it sound clean with all that bass with the mids and highs still quality?
  14. so I'm going upgrade my system to 2 fi ssd neo 15s and I was wondering if someone help me design a box for them. I have a 99 blazer and I would like 2 acrylic glass windows. Thank you for all the help.

  17. I'm very impressed with the quality of the Skar VVX series. I definitely haven't been disappointed. For only two 12s in a Full size SUV there is decent flex and air movement. I have them on just a HiFonics Hfi1000.1 D So they are not getting even the 600RMS each they are recommended. Plus If I'm careful I could probably put 750 to 1000 watts on each sub and they would take it easily. These subs can definitely take a beating and they love hitting nasty lows. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UzT9-IlwbhY

  20. 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?

  21. Ok, I'm looking into buying either a XS D2700 or an XS D3100 battery.... Issue is that I am only allowed one battery in the class that I am running. I can barely fit the D2700 in the stock battery location, and the D3100 is way to big to fit. Question is: Should I just deal with the D2700 and keep it in the Stock location, or go with the bigger D3100 and just put a distrobution block under the hood and run the battery in the trunk? Thanks guys
