  1. Hello my name is rich and i am currently building a 2000 Mercury Mountaineer my daily driver into a 10k daily driver. I have been doing car stereo since i was 15 and this is going to be the second most advanced system that i have ever put together. So need as much help and criticism as possible. Want to learn as much as i can and have a nice build. If you haven't read my other build log i started building a 97 hyundai Tiburon and after having my system up and going for a little over a month the trans blew. was loud as hell needed work but oh well. so had to find another daily driver and wasn't going to give up system so decided to go truck route (5 kids 4 girls, 1 boy) My goals for this car are upper 140s-150 dbs (if possible and musical) (not metered yet) to learn as much as possible (fiberglassing, body work, vinyl work) decent sq (don't want subs to over power everything) start with equipment that i have and slowly but eventually build to bigger and better equipment Build it better then my 03 mitsubishi lancer oz rally (that i miss like a child) alpine iva-d310, pxa-h701, 420i, audiocontol matrix plus, ps2 slim in glovebox, cf Vr804, 2 Vr1000d, excessive amperage 200 amp alt, 2 kinetic power 2400, 1 run tsunami 0, big 3 0 Tsunami, 2 sets of cf x6s one front one rear, 2 mtx 9500 12in d4s, tons of dynamat extreme, varad 1000 color leds in front foot wells, yellow leds in pocket under radio, yellow florescent lights in door pockets walker front bumper canary yellow Loud and Clean daily driver (final goal) (demos, car shows, and competitions) Here is the list of the equipment that i currently have HU: pioneer deh 80prs (network mode on active) RCAs: Streetwires, Connection Singer 340 six phase hairpin amp alternator XS Power D3400 under hood with Custom 1/2 Aluminum Bus Bars (made by me) 1/0 Gauge 3 runs SHCA OFC Big 4 double 1/0 OFC SHCA OFC Distrobution Blocks S.M.D., and directed audio 2 Stinger SVMR Voltmeter (Red) (one for front batt and one for rear Battery bank) Skar sk85.4 85x4 @ 4 ohms on 2 sb acoustics neo dome tweeters MMATS Sq4100 100x4 @ 4ohms on 4 silver flute 8s (4ohm) Subs: 6 12in AB xfl d2s soon to be 6 fully built ascendant audio mayhem 12s d1.4 Sub Amp: 2 DC 5ks with TM dual Inputs and TM quad speaker imputs 4 XS Power D3100s with custom 1/2 aluminum buss bars in rear (made by me) Here is a list of equipment that i want or need may change Cooling for amps in rear More interior speakers???

  3. 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.
  4. I was thinking about getting a box like this done is it recommendable or a different kind of port? Facing the rear hatch or up? Really want to get some air moving love the lows tho.
  5. I've been helping a buddy install a system in his 2016 Jeep Wrangler JK. I finally have enough pics to start a build log, so I'll be loading all of them up over the next couple weeks. The requirements were simple: he wanted (4) 8's or nothing at all. Silly? Maybe; but we met the requirements and hope to be banging before the end of the year The stock sub (an 8x10) has 4 voice coils Ran some numbers in TermLab at first, but then switched the design over to WinISD. Came up with this size enclosure: That router feels good man Went with PSI-8's with High Performance suspension for 600Wrms per sub We were jammin some of that good techno The original plan was to have a few tube ports, but I had a hunch that they were too small. Thats about the time that Triticum came out with his port velocity calculator, and I realized the port velocities with these small ports would give me the tuning we were wanting, but also gave us almost 100 m/s port velocity (yikes!) Then the design changed to have a properly sized port attached to the back panel, bringing the velocities down to around 25-30 m/s I didnt really trust my kerf skills yet More pics coming tomorrow. Thanks for looking!
  6. iso of two 12” subwoofers that can handle at least 3500rms a piece...could be sundown audio dc audio PSI etc but let me know whats out here for sell...for shipping purposes for price on sub with shipping my zip code is 06105
  7. What do you guys think of running 1 Dc level5 in 1.5 box at 38 Hz on crescendo 3500. Need opinions this sub is not cheap.
  8. I have a quantum 4000 pushing 2 arc 15d4s in a sealed box I did a bandpass in my 03 honda accord. I know that amp isnt giving me 4000 the fuses are only 120 amp total if I went with the dc 2.0k would I notice THAT MUCH of a difference? I hit 135db with this system what can I expect with the dc?
  9. I have an 18" DC level 5 and will be powering it off a Memphis Audio 16-mcd2500 in a 2012 Chevy Suburban. Anybody have experiance with an 18 in different types of boxes in a suburban and can tell me what design works the best?
  10. ok so I have a single 12" sundown x 12 d4 soon to be getting another in the mean time im looking to upgrade form an alpine mrx-m100 (1000 @ ohms [email protected] 1) its a weird amp wanting 2500-3000 rms at 1 ohm or a 2 chl that does 1250-1500 @ 2 ohm ect open to all offers on amps but I do not have 700 bucks to buy one lol you can pm me or reply on this thread ill get back asap thank you for any and all inquiries in advanced. p.s. new to buying on this forum so I will be noobin it up when it comes to buying someone with experience on how its done would be very much appreciated also
  11. I need some help on decision which amp I should get. Ive narrowed it down to crescendo 3500, DC 3.5k, q1-3500d1, and a 1500bdcp...for now I need to run close to 2000wrms at 2 ohms but will be looking to get new subs to play at 1 ohm and more watts in the near future. which of these would be best and any other suggestions for around the same price as these?
  12. I just recently ordered a sundown x12, and need some help on a box design. Want it to be tuned low, since all I mainly listen to is decaf. I don't have much space to play with, only a 36"wide, 13"height, 13"depth. Any ideas??
  13. Alright so finally got around to "finishing" a build in one of my vehicles haha. I say "finishing" because it's as close to done without having the new alternator or battery racks built but it's sooo close lol. "Fighter Jet" reasoning will be shown through pictures, hopefully you get the meaning haha. Here are the stats: 2000 Ford Explorer Limited 5.0 AWD Pioneer 80PRS Custom switch/gauge panel SHCA RCAs, fuse holders, ring terminals, heat shrink SHCA Green and Black 1/0 DC AUDIO 5K DC AUDIO 10k 4- Soundqubed HDC3 10s 4 - 18" DC Audio Lvl 6 18s, full Carbon fiber option XSPOWER Batteries SINGER ALTERNATORS Anyone want to see some pictures?
  14. Hey everyone. Im new to the forum so forgive me for the "newbieness" have always read topics on the forum but decided to finally join! I mean im here all the time so why not. But to get to what I need help with! Have been working on a new build for my truck (2004 silverado ext cab) plans are for 2 dc audio xl 10s under the seat with a dc audio 5k for power. Alternator batterys and all those goodies to come as well. I use bass box pro for designing my boxes. Have played around alot on the program and am familiar with it. Nothing too extensive tho as far as knowledge goes with it. I have tried and tried every way (that I know of) to to get 1 cubic ft of air space (recomended air from the dc website and personally from rob and rusty from dc) but my problem is that in order to have a box be 1 cubic ft and tune it in the low 30s the port is around 50 inches long. Thats just about an average length ive come up with. Tried slot ports pvc/aero ports. Not sure what to do to get 1 cubic ft air space and tune from 31-35 without an insanely long port?? Iike I said im pretty new and its my first post so any help or ideas is appreciated. Hpefuly im just having a brain fart and its a totally easy thing im overlooking haha.
  15. Have a c-pillar slide in wall in my 00 mountaineer for 6 ascendant audio mayhem 12s and need to seal it off. Was told by some people spray foam in garbage bags around box. Question with this because it's right next to windows will regular and big gap foam potentially break a window or will I be fine with it against a window. (sorry never done this) also how should I mount false panels to roof, sides, etc? Any info or help on this would be greatly appreciated Ty. https://flic.kr/p/22bEi6R https://flic.kr/p/21EYhLS

  17. 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

  19. ok so on my quest to find a better amp than the one I have now ( alpine mrx-m100 600 @4, 1000 @2, 600 @1 that's straight out the manual) ive came acros an older alpine mrv1507 the alpine mrv 1507 is near 18 or so inches long and it is a 2 chl amp heres the spec form user manual 12v 20-20khz per chl 4 ohm - 150w 0.08% thd per chl 2 ohm - 300w 0.3% thd bridged 4ohm - 600w 0.3% thd 14.4v 20-20khz per chl 4 ohm - 225w 0.08% thd per chl 2 ohm - 450w 0.3% thd bridged 4 ohm - 900w 0.3% thd ive done some of my own research and everywhere I found says the amp is under rated but how far? and does anything it will handle 2 ohm bridged daily? ( I never drive far or bump to long so about maybe 10 or 15 min runs ) ohh asking price for it is 200 bucks
  20. 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:

  22. Hows it doing bass heads n fellow bass addicts, does anyone have any idea if Sundown discontinued the nightshade line of woofers?? I'm really hell bent on buying some subs and the nightshade's are on my hit list of "must own subs", I have a few friends who are the must see it to believe it type and are so wrapped up in the hype and still think that the kicker L7 and the jl w7 are the best subs in the world and I'm trying to make some believers out of a few of them, I know that the enclosure plays a big role in the subs performance so my plans are to buy a pair of subs from either dc, sundown or skar. still not sure which company i might get with, but if you guys could be willing to help me with advice on which woofers to get, or where I could do a lil more homework, I would really appreciate it and money wise I have about 1500 for the subs if i have to dig a little deeper in my pockets I will, space isnt a major factor I have a van that im trying to get started on so if you guys could help me out and give me some decent info on these subs and companies so I can finally smash these suckers beliefs and finally get them off that bandwagon.
