  1. Hey guys. I'm trying to add a Taramps Smart 3K Bass to my system. Currently, I already have 3 amps in place for bass/mids/highs, I would like to replace the bass amp. At the moment, I'm just not sure what exactly needs to be done to achieve this (another 0 gauge run, another battery, etc.) Am I able to just add another run of 0 gauge for the new bass amp from the battery? (Highlighted in green below) Current set up: 2006 Dodge Magnum R/T 345A Autotech Alternator (Custom built/painted) XS D3400R 80Ah AGM Battery upgraded all power/grounds to 0 gauge Taramps TS2000.4 for mids Taramps DS800.4 for highs Hifonics 1600.1 for bass Current voltage sitting in high 13s, no significant drops I've noticed. Feel free to share your opinions. Thanks!
  2. Hey ya'll, I'm looking for some advice. RN I have four 8" kicker Solo-Baric L7S (https://www.kicker.com/solo-baric-l7s-8-4-ohm-subwoofer) under the back seat of my truck, powered by a Soundigital 3300.1D Power (https://soundigitalusa.com/products/3300-1d-power/) The box has a total volume of 2.5 cu.ft. (https://subthump.com/Chevrolet-GMC-Custom-Subwoofer-Boxes/Silverado-And-Sierra-Crew-Cab-Custom-Subwoofer-Enclosures-by-Subthump/20142018-Crew-Cab/20142018-GM-Crew-Cab-Dual-8-Ported-Front-Fire-Box-Lift-Kit-Req39d-New-clone.html?osCsid=d501294e1c960bk0tsdc01fct4) and I have a 2.5" lift on my back seat for more room. My issue is that over the last two years I've had two of the subs fail. Both times one of the voice coils stops working while the other is ok when tested independently. I'm thinking of changing them out but wanted opinions from people who have more experience than me. I'm looking to squeeze as much bass out of the space under by back seat as possible but I want it to be reliable. I don't feel like I'm overdriving the subs or anything but want to know what y'all think. I'm open to different boxes and even considering going ported if I can, also willing to go to different sized subs if they'll perform better. I'm looking at some options myself and have a couple ideas in mind but want to know what y'all think. I don't mind spending money if it means awesome performance with great reliability. Let me know that ya'll think will work good for me. Thanks in advance, any help is greatly appreciated.

  6. 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.
  7. Hey guys, I am new to this forum and would appreciate all the feedback I can get! Decided to go with sundown because of all the positive reviews and great community! Anyways I want to build something that will give me the bump I am looking for in my daily driver. I had 2 15 kicker l7s previously with rated rms. This will be for a 2012 chevy Tahoe with alot of room to work with. After tons of research I have decided I really like the X series. I am thinking about ordering 2 x15's with an either sundown4000.1 or the skar 4500.1 (little cheaper) (student loan life) and building a custom ported box to spec. Now with it tuned correctly and installed correctly, do you guys recommend upgrading electrical for this set up? All feedback is greatly appreciated, and suggestions are welcomed.
  8. my system was loud as shit but after a having it for a couple of weeks it just isnt the same but is still loud.. so i gotta ask is it just me or is something wrong? could i be just getting used to it. it happens everytime i upgrade.
  9. I have a 2011 silverado extended cab and I'm either looking in doing two SA 8 v.2 or two SA 10's what do yall think? What amp also would be best for them, Thanks
  10. The loudest song I have found on the meter is Moan by Lil Wayne Ft. Rick Ross. It was on a decaf zip. Its around .7 db louder then my next closest. I got some new ones I'm going to try at the next comp/test and tune
  11. 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.
  12. here is the btls closing doors for me...whats cant these things do..lol
  13. http://m1091.photobucket.com/albumview/albums/thaiboxing101/photobucket-38535-1339303687264.png.html?o=0&newest=1 One of my best buddies. New project coming together slowly. These go under the massive center channel and 10' tall line array mains. He's known for going overboard, but the moment someone says he'll never use what he has to its potential.....they find out he aint skeered! Cool if ya dig it.
  14. 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
  15. Lookin to see what music everyone listens to. What songs gives the most bass and best sound quality of it?
  16. NEW UPDATE 2-13-12!!!!! IF THE THREAD RUNS UNUSED FOR OVER 6 MONTHS IT WILL BE LOCKED. ANY INQUIRIES CAN BE HANDLED BY P.M. TO THE O.P. NEW UPDATE!!! 2-24-09 YOU MUST HAVE 150 POST TO POST AN ITEM FOR SALE (that also means you CANNOT sell items through your sig or in the chat room below 150 posts) I only have a one, the rest is common sense. If your not looking to buy a product that someone has for-sale, Do Not Post in that thread, no matter how much you think someone wants to much money or what not. if you know they are scamming then that's a different story, otherwise Shut up, I'm tired of seeing peeps trying to tell people what is or isn't a good price on something they DON'T OWN. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I hate to do this but people aren't understanding common sense. 1. Do NOT post dump. - Post dump is an unnecessary post - All items listed for sale must be listed with a asking price for each item - If you hate the price don't complain about, its up to the OP(original poster) to set his price, other wise PM him/her - If you are not interested in purchasing or are interested but do not have the money to purchase the item at the time you see the thread on that item that is for sale, do NOT post - Posts may be deleted without warning - Report to mod button is there for the sake of reporting the thread, USE IT - Repeat offenders will have a short ban from the forum 2. Do not question the moderators - No need to explain this rule, basically don't argue with them 3. Pictures with your name and date on a piece of paper shown with every item being listed is a MUST - if you have time to post you have time to take pics. if not we aren't interested in your thread here. - We have a moderation staff, we don't need 40 members posting that they need pics/150 post minimum or it will be deleted, it just clutters up threads and we have to delete all the random chatter to keep the threads clean. Anyone caught playing Rent-A-Mod will be sent on a 24 hour vacation. The rules are for everyone's benefit, just read them and abide by them its not hard. 4. References will help your sale 5. Do not bump your thread more than once a day - There is a difference between bumping and updating - A bump is a term used to move your thread to the top of the list - Do not BUMP others threads 8. Do not ask us to delete your for sale thread, they will be here for archive, we however can lock the thread. 7. Respect each other 8. NO FEELERS 9. IF you do no have 150 posts you CANNOT sell period. Nothing in sig either. 10. No links to off site sales other than Hot Deals. If you want to sell it here, make sure the post fits all rules for the appropriate section it is listed in. 11. NO RAFFLES WHAT SO EVER 12. DONT ADVERTISE YOUR ITEMS FOR SALE IN A WANT TO BUY THREAD IF YOU DONT MEET THE CRITERIA The rules are for everyone's benefit, just read them and abide by them its not hard. If you are a Vendor here with your own Section these new rules do not apply to you if your in Roscoe's thread below this of Super sellers these new rules do not apply as well.
  17. Anyone like listening to some good ol' classic rock? post some videos with your favorite classic rock tune playing in your car/truck/house/system! This is the last video of all my stuff in the van, its now in a projector room with 5.2 surround sound (dual 18's on 2 channels L R)
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. Anyone in south florida that would be interested in an audio meet up somewhere? Or is there any around?
  21. aye wasup everyone! Its BeetzBum in this B%*ch, but you can call me Beetz for short! I'm new to the forum but have been following SMD on youtube for a bit over a yr now... I'm a hip hop music producer as well as a bass junkie. Im looking to link up with ppl and share my music with you all. Find me on youtube and get some FREE downloads!

If I receive enough good feedback I will take requests and also start uploading more downloadable content. thanks everyone and enjoy the BEETZZZ
