  1. Hello everyone. so i am searching over the internet for some decent components that will match my system but i am a bit confused now.. so at the moment i am using Morel virtus 602 components with JBL GTO19T tweeters(i fried the morel ones and replaced them with the jbl) as for the amp i am using audison SR4 (currently using 4 ch but willing to go for 2ch) the amp gives in 2 ch 175W X 2 @ 4 OHM Running a 1000 RMS DC AUDIO level 3 sub so i am looking for components that will match the system and the amp + people are suggesting that i should add 6/9 speakers and i dont think its a good idea since i have a kia rio sedan and i dont have 6/9 in the rear what should i do? get another components put them on the rear on 4ch get a better components and run them on 2ch or go for the 6/9 in the rear? Thank you all for your time
  2. hello everyone and thank you for your time... i recently installed a new system in my car SETUP : DC AUDIO LEVEL 3(connected on 1 ohm) , Skar skv2 1500D Monoblock , MOREL VIRTUS 602 as for components, Audison SR4 as for 4 channel amp, under the hood is a deep cycle AGM battery, and a 1.5farad capacitor in the trunk jvc kw-v21bt headunit WIRING : 0AWG from the hood battery to the monoblock and the ground is 0AWG from the amp to the chassis (about 20cm) , 4AWG (+ AND GROUND) from the hood battery to the 4 channel amp, and ofc high end cables and RCA from the headunit to the amps... big 3 : NO Problem : when i play at low volume everything works perfectly, as soon as i raise the volume up to half (mono gain is 1\10) the music dies. the amps doesn't go into protection and the voltage doesn't drop! , when i close the gain i can go to full volume with no problems, Notice : i currently using a stock grounding from the battery + a 16AWG to the chassis ( i think its weak), sometimes when the bass kicks really hard without the music dies, i hear a bit of distortion coming out from the tweeters What could be the issue? Thank you all for your time <3

  6. PICTURES TO COME ONCE PHOTOBUCKET DECIDES TO WORK PROPERLY So i've had a couple builds on here, time for another lol Some lead-in explanation is needed as always. Started out with a dollar and a dream, bought an 08 Tahoe, pretty well loaded with hopes of a 4-18s c-pillar on 20k with 4 alternators. Leather, heated buckets front and rear, third row (obviously to be removed), the perfect canvas to create a beast system.
  7. Hey y’all, Looking for some advice on these 3 woofers. Which do you think will sound the best and worth what they are priced. I need a 10inch sub that is taking at least 1000watts rms. These are the 3 options I have come up with: Dc level 3, sundown x10, and an alpine x series 10. Also I heard the new Memphis mojo 10s are pretty good. Which do you guys think sound the best and are worth my money haha.
  8. Hey guys, im planing a new build with a single dc level 6 15 ( daily but still able to do spl runs )but first i have a few questions such as recommendations for a great amp ( i was looking at the crescendo 6k or 8k but still looking around) and also box specs and tuning recommendations.. any help is greatly appreciated. For electrical i have a 370 mechman alt and a custom 80 ah lithium with big 3 and multiple runs of 2/0 with a pioneer 80prs head unit in my tahoe .

  11. cant seem to find a good design layout for a single DC lvl 4 m2 18, I want a ported box tuned around 33-35htz and 6cf any help would be greatly appreciated and the more specific the info the better lol I will be building this myself
  12. Hey SMD! awhile back i posted a thread about coil rub on one of my level 5s. i purchased a reconethrough Cj. but never reconed the sub. i just kept playing on it with the SD8k, then on the k12. i first started noticing this "clanking" sound a couple weeks back when i was demoing a couiple people at a local shop. before i left, i played a song, My shit bang- e-40, i totally forgot that there is a very low note in the song, i broke a dustcap on one sub, and blew off the other. the note was extremely low. after the most recent show i attened, i gave a couple demos, but by the time i was to be metered, the "clanking" noise became louder and output seemed to be less. now its really bad. recone time? heres a vid to help describe the noise. and heres some pic:
  13. I'm looking to build a box like WCA Rusty's in a 2019 Silverado Crew Cab (4 DC M3 8's ported). However, I want to build a cover in front of the subs to protect them from feet. I'm thinking 1-2 layers of 18mm (3/4") MDF with a pressed metal grill in front of each woofer, but I need some information before I can move forward. Does anyone know what the distance is from the mounting surface on the box to the maximum capable excursion of the cone? Or at least the height from the mounting surface to the top of the surround while not powered? (I can figure out the rest of the distance using the Xmax) If the distance is too much I'll have to drop down to ordering 3 subs to reduce the depth of the box and I don't want to ruin the subs by having them hit a metal grill and cut up the surrounds, or worse.
  14. I am looking to buy up to 8 2 ohm 8 inch subwoofers. I am mainly looking for DC Audio level 2 8 inch, Sundown N8V2 or SA-8, maybe Skar or DD 8's as well. So if you have 2 or more subs that I am looking for pm me price and how many you have and condition they are in. I don't want subs that have been abused or ran with over kill of power. Nothing wrong with that just looking for subs that are pretty new, not abused power wise and good looking condition. Looking to start a project with 8 subwoofers in a custom fiberglass enclosure so looking to start buying the subs. I have Items I am willing to trade if interested at all. 18 inch subs, Soundstream Amp, and maybe some other stuff. Thanks

  17. hey everybody. im planning on running two 18 inch ssa zcons running off of two alpine mrx m240's . and a alpine mrx f65 4 channel amp. im planning on getting a 370 amp alternator for my truck and i wanted to get two xs power 3100's but they wont fit up front. so im wondering with a total of probly 500 amps pulling from my electrical if i would be okay. i was thinking of getting a dc power 370 amp alt and two d3400's. instead of the 3100's . i really wont have any room in the back for batterys and im wondering if ill be fine with that alt and the two d3400's up front using 8 runs of 0 gauge to the amps. so four positive and 4 negative. seperate 4 gauge for the component amp. thanks . id love to know how it would match up . ive ran a single mrx 240 but now with the amps going up id thought id make sure before wasting money on stuff i dont really need. this is also just a daily system although i do listen to some bass heavy songs. but no burps , and no competitions. thanks:)
  18. Hey Peeps, Just a quick question on a pair of LVL3 12"'s. Do you think a Crescendo BC2000D would be ok to match up with a pair of lvl3's? Crescendo claims 2250 RMS watts x1 @1 ohm. I did car audio some 18 years ago then got married and stopped. Here we are 18 years later divorced and ready to do another build. Things have changed a bit but I think with a little guidance this should be a good build. $4k budget and i'm looking at getting obviously 2 DC lvl3 12's, Crescendo mono amp(BC2000D) and 4 channel (C1100.4). I'll be running Crescendo mids and highs as well and a Pioneer (AVH-X5500BHS) HU. I'll also be using a Audio control Line Driver for voltage boost. Any advice ???

    Looking for a used dc 5k
  20. Hello guys, I am in the process of getting everything together for a new system for my 2012 Chevrolet Cruze, and I need some help. I am wondering what kind of xs power batteries I need, and how many to power two Crescendo BC3500D's bridged together on two DC XL 12's for a 1 ohm load. The list I have so far for the build is the following: Tsunami PR601R-50 (power wire 0 gauge) Tsunami PRE-GN601-25*2 (ground wire 0 gauge) XS Power D6500*2?? (crescendo amp batteries) XS Power D680?? (american bass amp battery) XS Power D3100?? (under the hood battery) DC XL 12*2 (subs) Sundown NEO PRO 6.5*4 (door speakers) Sundown NEO PRO 8*2 (rear deck speakers) Audiotechnix Deadener 6sq. ft. 60mil*8 American Bass SQ475*2 (speaker/tweeter amps) 300 amp high output alt FT1 Super Tweeter Crescendo*2 Crescendo BC3500D*2 (subwoofer amps) All the information I could get would be very helpful in my process so I can get started on the system build. As soon as I get started (which will be in a few months after I get all the money) I will be uploading pictures, and then videos. Thank you all for your help.

  22. Considering buying a new amp for my truck. I'm running a 12 kicker cvx, dual 4 ohm wired to 2 ohms. Have a kicker zx.300.1 using 2 gauge ofc wire. No electrical upgrades. I was told the audiopipe apsm 1500.1 was a great budget amp.
  23. Hey guys and gals. I need to order a recone kit for my dc level 6 18 m4 I really liked the look of the carbon fiber cone and dust cap till I saw the price. Real shocker right. Any rate what do you all think of the carbon fiber cone for the extra $320.00 plus $40.00 for the carbon dust cap. I am sure it will be more stiff but is it worth the extra. Thanks in advance.
