Roof work,... fully boxed, and welded.....with a few cans of foam........ Fully welded.. (and have more to do) This kid doesnt fuck around. stay tuned for more.... its a big project, and will take time..... but,........ its rolling, so to speak
  2. Hey, all! This is my baby. It's a 2003 Mitsubishi Montero that I drove in high school; I recently bought it back from my folks for a couple grand, and its whole purpose is to be destroyed with bass. She's in decent shape for 140k miles. A few years ago, I had a c-pillar wall in this thing with 2 Fi BTL N2 18s on a n AQ3500.1 at .7. It did 152s with garbage electrical, and was super fun. I've always dreamed of walling this thing at the b pillar, so here we go. All I saw here was potential. Time to rip all this shit out. The process has begun. Carpet cut, headliner removed, and roof braces foamed. There's quite a decent amount of space in this bitch. Maaaany more pics to come. Just gotta get them on Imgur. Stay tuned!
  3. 5 crossfire xsm8 loudspeakers in each door. power comes from a taramp 3000 HD. had them in for a month or so now. no problems. still deciding on when to put the shag carpet on. glassed both sides. made a mess as usual. strong though.
  4. I want to put my crossfire subs up for sale. Hate to let them go but some unexpected things came up and I need to let them go. They are absolutely 100% brand new. Never been out of the box. Except for the 1 you see in the pictures. This was taken out to take pictures and that's it. So they are completely new. They will ship from Texas. They can go for $1900 shipped for all 4. Im willing to split them up in sets of 2 just ask me if this is what you want If you are interested let me know! UPDATE: PRICE DROP TO $1850,- shipped
  5. ***WALL STARTS ON PAGE 19*** Alright.. So basically, EVERYTHING is coming out. Literally the only equipment that'll be reused are the Singer alt, batts, HU, subs, and tweeters. Thats it.. like even the voltage meter is coming out. I wont have any progress for about a month when I go back home for summer break.. But I figured Id get this thread started.. The weather is warming up, so that can only mean one thing.. Heavier oil. Next, I got these in the mail.. Instead of sleeping at 1am what am I doing?
  6. Hey guys, Looking at woofers and amplifiers for a new build, does anyone know what a Crossfire XSv2 15/18 or a Crossfire 8k goes for? I've heard good things about them but haven't been able to find much in the way of pricing.
  7. A little info- I'm 18 years old, car audio is what i love doing and this was all built by me with the help of my dad on occasion. It took a lot of saving and planning and I'm still saving for subs and amps and more batteries right now. First of all, the turd this build is going in to. 2001 Explorer XLT 5.0 The plan is 6 Crossfire C7 15s on a Crossfire XS 8K.
  8. So i have never personally ran Aero ports before. Most of the guys i know who run them are trunk class. Before i decide to port it just looking for any input on running these in a wall. All the walls i have heard personally are ported so i have no idea. Thanks.. Running 2 crossfire c7 18s on 2 c5 1700s flat wall. Currently got a good 10 cubes net after displacement and bracing.

  10. So this is going to be my build log over the next 6 months on a 97 GMC Yukon. Power wire and RCAs is a mixture of SHCA, 2/0 welding cable, and Rockford Fosgate. ​1st thing that is going to be going in will be the HU Thursday. Then Saturday I should be posting pictures of the sub, box, and back battery install. Then on the 19th *fingers crossed* my mids and tweets will be going in. As of right now gonna be a single CT Sounds EXO 15 on a Soundstream TA1.3000d with Kenwood entry level Excelon HU, SBC RCA box, Crossfire mids, Soundstream tweeters, and Soundstream mid amps. Around January the Singer 320a will be installed. Then around May my sub will be switched to a EMF Yolo 18 or a IA Warden 21 and a c pillar wall will done. * add more photos as I get them*
  11. Have never done a build log always just built and enjoyed, this build is going to have some great challenges so thought it would be the perfect time to start a build log. Will be taking lots of pictures will start with the set up I had up until last week. The set up was only in the vehicle for 4 months, it sounded great got fairly loud but as all true bassheads I wanted,,, no needed more. The journey for me started when I was young before I had a car I had a system, and well that fire never died. This will give me a great output to share my ideas and visions with others. Here is a couple pics of my c-pillar wall before tear down. The system consists of 4 northstar 110ft 1 d5100R xs power 1 d3100 xs power 6 Maxwell ultracaps 2.5 2600 farad 2/0 copper wire in rear attaching all battery bank 1/0 runs from front 2 Singer 250+ alternator DDM4 Rockford Fosgate R300.4 4 sets Jl C series 6.5 Audio Control LCi2 2 AQ HDC3 18's Using Stock head unit due to fact everything runs through it. Best meter up to this point was 151.5 Legal at DBDrag show. It ran flat from 33-49 hz tuned at 38 with its peak at 47. This was with no deadener other than factory.
  12. So like it says i am attempting to do 2 Crossfire C7 18s out the trunk in my Camry, yes a Toyota Camry! I have been looking for builds with 18s out the trunk and i haven't found much, probably because most people think its not possible. Well im trying to make it possible. As you can see i have cut tons of metal out of my trunk opening attempting to get enough surface area for subs and port area. Unfortunately i have reached my max width at 41" leaving it impossible to put the subs side by side and have the port on the drivers side. So i am thinking of cutting up more metal out of the rear deck and going port top or even firing the port directly up or at a angle out of the rear deck where my 6x9s were once upon a time. I am currently sitting at about 20" in height without cutting into the rear deck. Got about 45+ inches all the back. I got a easy 16-17 gross cubes. just finding the surface area is the problem. How would port firing up or at a angle through the rear deck sound? I recall Steve actually doing fixer upper on a classic car with port firing through the deck. I am aiming for 11+ cubes net 100-120 Sqr. inches of port area tuned around 30-33hz Subs specs. O.D.18.5" I.D. 16.75" mounting depth 10.5". here is a few pics. any "positive" feedback is appreciated thanks!

    Proud little moment

    I know it's really not a big deal in the grand scheme of things but I was a little proud of my year in MECA. It was my first year as a member and my first year competing in any organization. I started out at a 147.9 @ the headrest and ended at a 151.0 @ the end of the season at the headrest. On the hottest day of the year it only did a 150.5 legal and second hottest day it did a 150.8. In the evening, it does anywhere from a 151-151.5 depending on HOW hot it is in the AZ nights. This is the reason I'm posting this thread: Not only did I win my class in SPL for the year, I guess I won Park and Pound too. The other kind of cool thing is, I qualified for Nationals in Alabama(I didn't go) with the points I gathered throughout the year. I can't wait to get in the lanes next year with an even louder(hopefully) build.
  14. Hello sir. I heard your the box guy! Im working on the rebuild atm this year and im running 2 crossfire c7 18s dual 1 walled in my Toyota Camry. I keep looking over the recommended specs on crossfires website but I thought I would run it by someone whos very knowledgeable like yourself. If you could help any it would be really appreciated. Thanks
  15. not anywhere close to being done. 1 sheet mdf just in case. prolly will need more birch though. gonna be lots more wood going into it still.
  16. (This log is dedicated to my wall build, my other log is very cluttered with old builds and some talking) Okay, so I finally decided to go big and put a wall in my 97 Explorer Sport. I knew I didnt have much space to work with and have wanted to try a bandpass for a while now. So here we go... I built the box to slide in the hatch had to gut the explorer too... and finally in the car

    amp test request

    i would like to see what the c3-501 amp from crossfire would do on an smd amp dyno
  18. I had never seen a good hairtrick windows up so I attempted to pull it off. Started bass knob all the way down. got it up a little past half and could not focus on the road so left it there. It can go up to full with no clipping. When checking on TL about same on knob was hitting 155. She takes it like a champ.
  19. i decided its about time i post some pics of what im running. gonna be more of a show off til i get my equipment for my doors. anyways here it is: finished enough to run test fit 45s painted port and bracing. thinking of adding some more though turned the port against the glass. helped to get some pressure off the window recent upgrade from 12 gauge to 8 gauge speaker wire. it seems a few dbs louder but no way to measure amps batt and alt stock 90 amp vs. stock 130 amp alt birth sheet eclipse hu. not bad for $300 kenwood rear view some other stuff. if i had an hc1400 i would do this. its a perfect fit bass knob
  20. I am the 1st owner and have had it on a strong electrical. Nothing wrong with the amp I just need more power.. Clamped over 10k out of it. With a starting voltage of 14.9 dropping to 12.9 and a nominal impedance of .5 and reactive of .999 This is the XS-8K (12v version) Has the bass knob and owners manual. I will be shipping from 99205 and the box is 45" long, 14" wide, 5" tall and 54 pounds. It will be shipped in original boxes and insured. if you want a shipping quote all the info you need is right there. Here are some specs copied and pasted from the Crossfire page. The XS-8 amplifier is a raw power machine capable of INSANE POWER LEVELS. The amplifiers circuit board is based on years of high power research and development along with years of experience to make sure every XS-8 amplifier will perform beyond expectations. The XS-8 was designed for competition SPL vehicles in mind, and ridiculously loud street beat machines. The XS-8 is designed and built without compromise, to deliver the strongest amplifier possible. Many years of R&D have been focused on improving the efficiency and durability of such a high-powered amplifier. We have developed a power supply designed to extract maximum power from real world battery voltages, and produce INSANE power when voltages are taken up to the 18-volt range. The Mosfet and output legs are hand soldered to handle the extreme current demands, and ensure reliability. Power supply connections are handled by 3 sets of 0 gauge connectors for maximum current flow. We offer 2 versions of the XS-8 amplifier, models are the XS-8K, and the XS-8X. The XS-8K power supply was designed for the STREET CLASS SPL competitor or the daily ground pounder when voltages are under 16 VOLTS or less. The XS-8X power supply was built for the EXTREME HIGH VOLTAGE competitor looking for maximum power at 18 VOLTS. Therefore, whether you have an extreme vehicle looking to break 180 DB or a street vehicle pounding the pavement, CROSSFIRE has made sure we got you covered. Product Features · Digital Class-D Strapable Mono Block Amplifier · Dual MOSFET PWM Power Supply · Stable Into 1 Ohm Mono Load · 24 dB/oct, Variable Low Pass Filter · 24 dB/oct, Variable Subsonic Filter · 9 dB/oct, Variable Bass Boost · 180 Variable Phase Shift · 4 Way Protection Circuit · Subwoofer Level Controler Included · XS-8K Working Voltage from 8.5V ~16V And some pics....
  21. This is my first ever custom designed and cut box. it's nothing spectacular, but I definitely think it's a good start and I am sure there's PLENTY of room for improvement. The box is holding a single Crossfire XS 12" driver. The box is going to be carpeted and put in. A YouTube video will soon follow. Volume: 2.57 Cubic Feet Tuning Freq: Approx. 30Hz (after displacement) Dimensions: 26"W x 14"H x 16"D Port: 12.5"H x 2"W x 33"L
  22. Maybe this is just a quick rant but what the hell has happened to customer service at these companies over the last couple years? I need 8 4" coiled 18's and have cash in hand for them but wanted to actually talk to a person at the sub company before I ordered them to see if they will be a good fit, can be built in short order, and if I can get a little price cut for buying 4-5k in subs. Only phone # I have for Fi has been turned off it seems, no response to emails so obviously they can care less if I buy from them these days. I used to be able to call up and order directly from Scott but that's not an option anymore. Called Crossfire, got somebody who wasn't allowed to sell subs and he gave me an email address to somebody who was guaranteed to get back to me within a day...that was 4 days ago. I even called DC who has been really good to me in the past and left a voicemail.....been 2 weeks, customer doesn't want DC subs anymore. Guess I'll go to walmart and drop 5k on kicker? I know that CES is going on and there are customers who are much more high profile than I am but give me a break. Well, that's it, dont feel much better.
