  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. I have a single 12" american bass godfather DVC 1ohm subwoofer and a Audiopipe 1800.1d mono amplifier to power the sub. Head unit is typical pioneer deh3500 model. This is in a 06 Ford Escape XLT, needing suggestions and ideas on a box build for this setup. I'm open to any idea's except, sealed enclosures. Seems to look like it'll be easier to blow a sub using a sealed enclosure . Keep in mind the Escape is my daily driver. Thank yall for any tips or ideas.
  4. Question for any person, I'm building a box for a friend. He has 2-JL Audio W7(not the AE) svc 3ohm subs with a Taramps 5000.1 mono but switching to a JL 1000 mono amplifier. He wants a sealed enclosure but he likes loud so I suggested a ported box. Doesn't want that, so I had mentioned having both types either going 4th order being sealed and ported or go with a 6th order. By experienced ppl out there, which type enclosure would be best for these 2 12W7's? The system is going in a 06' Buick Regal. Thank yall if any ideas on this
  5. 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????
  6. I was contacted by Massive Audio a couple of months ago to check out their new subwoofer line, the "BOA" subs. These are 6000 watt RMS subs available in 12 and 15" diameters. These subs have 4" voice coils and massive motor structures. In this video, I take a closer look at the BOA121, the 12" strontium magnet version. Note: This is NOT a sponsored video! Massive Audio sent me the subwoofer free of charge knowing I would provide my honest opinion and feedback of the speaker. I accepted as it would be helpful in future videos testing large amplifiers with a subwoofer capable of handing the tremendous power of some amps I test.
  7. Need enclosure specs and power ratings for old school Lanzar pro plus 10” single voice coil, 8 ohm
  8. No, it's not a porn title... Long time since I've posted. About 8 years. Life hit hard and I'm just getting back on my feet and into some car audio again. So I've owned small Craigslist set ups over the past few years and I'm really wanting to finally just build and buy my own. I did a temporary cheap set up but am ready to plan a real one. I'm currently running a MOFO 10" powered by a planet audio trq3000. Probably 800 rms at most. Amp will be upgraded to a better quality amp. But that's not where I'm stuck. Where I'm stuck is finding the perfect 10". My box is currently at 2 cu ft with a 4" aero at 32 hz. My goal is to find a 10" that's better quality. I know 12s, 15s, and 18s would be better for lows but with the space I have, small is better and I like to be a little different. I'd like to stay around $200 for a 10" but may save another $100 if it's well worth it. Staying around 1k Watts rms and a sub that likes it low. I have a few brands in interested in but with being out for so long, idk what's what anymore. I'd be willing to build a new box too but can't get too big. Here's a few 10s I had picked out Skar evl-10 Seven SS1000 Massive summoxl 10 AB xfl 10 AB TNT 10 Dark audio DKI 10 PSI series 2 10" (with boosters) NEP advanced 10" Soundqubed HDS3 10 Thank you all! Feels good to be back into car audio.
  9. I search to Songs who hits in the 40s to the 50s .
  10. Heres wat we got. I got a blazer with 37" width 20" depth n extensive heighth dimensions. I have a sheet of 3/4 in mdf. Im looking to build a box for my two alpine type r 15s. I plan on the subs and port to face up. A simple single slot port design would be awesome and ill likely run an mbquart 1000w onyx monoblock with them at 1 ohm. Anyone who could provide the dimensions and a diagram for a carpentery dummy it would b appreciated thank you.
  11. 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
  12. 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....
  13. Altered music isnt allowed anymore
  14. Hi all , what does amp hours mean for a battery For example 110AH Thanks
  15. I'm not a pro in this area so please be patient. I recently had my sub installed at a shop in my area along with an amp and a lc7i. Whenever I crank the volume up I get this low rumbling sound from the sub. It makes this noise even when there is no bass in the music I'm listening to (i.e. intro, outro). However, it doesn't make this noise while the music is paused. When I looked in my trunk i noticed that they ran all of my signal cables with my power and ground, so I figure there's a ground issue. I went back to have it looked at and the guy told me that since my car is so small it will make that noise due to the amount of bass that I have, and if it was in the trunk of a small car instead of the back of an suv I wouldn't hear it. None of this sounds correct to me, am I correct in assuming that he was just being lazy? I also noticed that my bass knob does not turn my amp all the way off. When the knob is all the way down I can still hear my sub, just at a much lower volume. Is this normal? Oh yeah, due to my sub being a 2ohm and my amp not being 1ohm stable I am forced for now to operate at a 4ohm load. This is only pushing 750 watts to a sub that 1100 watts is recommended for. The instructions say that I can safely power it with 500-1200 watts rms. Could this be a contributing factor? 2009 BMW X3 single Kicker Comp Q 15 Kicker ZXS1500.1 Audiocontrol LC7i
  16. I recently purchased 2 12 American Bass VFL comp, looking for a amplifier to push them to the max potential at the meter and to play music occasionally seeing I don't drive the car every day. I have been recommend to buy a 1100.1 AB or a 750.1 AB. Should I get something smaller? An suggestions?
  17. So..everything started in january 2012 with this white Vw T4. First 13 pieces of 50x50x2,5 rectangular steel where bought and the next day the welding started. The box will sit in a steel frame made in the shape of the van. The empty space between the steel and the walls,roof will be filled with expandable foam. On the steel frame sit 4 layers of tego. This first series of photos will show the box being built: Frame started: Old car being stripped out(4x15 in a bandpass):
  18. So, I have these 2 Alpine SWS-15D2 woofers that I have in a living room in separate 3.0 cu ft boxes (a bit too large) and I'm looking for a better way too power them. Each has a 500W RMS rating and right now I am using a 1000W computer power supply unit connected to an Audiobahn AMA24002 (600W RMS x 2 channels). Are there any receivers out there that can provide the wattage necessary to power the speakers without having to wire together a bunch of components in a tacky, ghetto fashion? Thanks
  19. i have an 01 tahoe with 4 rockford p3 12s. they sound good but i really want something that can hit the lows REALLY well. i have to rockford p1000x1bd amps. the birth sheet says they put out almost 1400 rms each. So basically im looking for the best sub around that power rating that truly excels on the lower end. enclosure size doesn't matter. sub size and price don't matter. i was thinking about 15s because i listen to a lot of rock and metal in edition to rap and stuff and i have heard that 18s have a hard time keeping up with the fast bass drum of metal music. maybe that's a load of crap i don't know. so feel free to school me on that as well. any suggestions are welcome.
  20. I just became a amp dealer for amazing company called "TARAMP". The technology inside these amps are insane and they are not big and bulky either. We carry a large variety of amplifiers and have very good pricing. PM me for any further info. I am very fast at responding back. 400 watts to 50,000 watts Some of these amps are capable to work at .5 ohm STABLE thanks for reading!!!!!
  21. So just to state this is not a VS thread. I just want to know what the advantages or disadvantages of say running 2 12s that are 1k rms ea over say a single 12 at 2k rms or even a single 15 at 2k rms
  22. here is my setup in the way of bass. 2X Jl Audio 12w6v2 1200/1 HD amp Does anyone know if it is possible to get the full 600 watt rms to each of the subs? The person ho installed said that it isn't possible because the amp is only 1.5 ohm stable or something like that. Any JL Audio people out there that can help me out? Im getting maybe 400 watts to each sub and one of them just blew. I am thinking that may have had something to do with it being underpowered?? Thanks
  23. I have 1 Atomic APX 18 D2, Atomics enclosure calculator says to use 6 cft net enclosure with 40 sq inch port 10 inches long, I built this enclosure and is stupid loud!!!! Now my question is this what size round port can i use, and how long to be around the same as the square port? thank you all in advance.
  24. 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.
