  1. Hi! I'm rebuilding my Punto for next year events. I bought it 5 years ago so let's start from there: First system including Ultimate T2 12" subwoofer, Twister TW1000 "1000W" amplifier and Hertz low end 6,5" coaxials and JVC head unit. Then there was Pioneer DEH-P5100UB head unit, better Hertz 6,5" coaxials with Focus Acoustics Formula FX-4150 amplifier, SPL Dynamics XTR-380D2S 15" subwoofer, Focus Acoustics Formula FX-1500D 1500W amplifier and Optima 55Ah battery. In the next step I upgraded speakers to 6,5" Hertz Energy ESK163L.4 3-way component system, made bigger and better subwoofer box, added 20Ah BSB battery and some tuning parts. Next I changed Kenwood KDC-BT92SD head unit, added another set of 6,5" Hertz Energy ESK163L.4 3-way component system speakers to rear, changed FX-4150 amplifier to SPL Dynamics ICE-150.4 and 15" XTR subwoofer to Focus Acoustics Black MK5 15D2 15". Then I upgraded the whole system and started to work with the interior. New system: Optima YELLOW TOP 55Ah and 38Ah batteries Focus Acoustics FX-2500D 2500W amplifier Focus Acoustics Black MK5 15D2 15" subwoofers x2 SPL Dynamics ICE-150.4 amplifiers x2 Hertz ESK163L.4 component speaker systems x2 SPL Dynamics SPL-HD25T Horn Loaded Compressor Tweeters x2 Match PP72W-D subwoofers as midbasses at front x4 To be continued in new post
  2. Hey guys, thought I would share my new build here. 05 Acura TL Pioneer avh-4800bs Vifa XT19 tweets Silver flute 8's Rockford T400-4 bridged DD 9518g DD M2a 7 cubes net, 32hz, 2 6" ports through rear deck. Diy flared 2/0 Lincoln Electric welding cable Started out with 1 stereo integrity HT18 infinite baffle on a jbl bp600.1 Loved how clean and smooth it was, could hit any note. Played 10hz test tone effortlessly. Just not enough output for me. Also had to angle the baffle back quite a bit to fit it. So I caught a good deal on the DD sub and amp from a buddy, and proceeded to make it fit. Had to cut some metal out. And since my back seat doesn't fold, just the arm rest. I decided to port through the rear deck. Had to build the box in 2 parts to fit it in the trunk. Ended up reusing my baffle from my IB setup. 2 layers with a 3rd flushed. The DD next to the SI The 8s in the doors. Pain in the rear!! The box. 7 cubes net. 32hz. 2 6" flared ports. Tried for a 3rd, couldn't get it to clear the magnet... Might try again later. And here is the sub and amps in Backseat and amp cover in I forgot pics of sealing the box off with foam. Sealed the deck off with ram mat. Overall I am very happy with it so far. Broken windshield Edit: fixed all the pictures and added the broken windshield
  3. How many batteries, alternators, does a system need to run properly? Is their an equation to calculate what you need, what type of batteries, what size alternator you need? For example i'm going to get 2 9512's by digital designs and also an m3b by digital designs. Im just seeing if anybody actually knows.
  4. Hi! Anyone got ideas for 4th order enclosure Digital Designs 512b woofer? I have made some calculations with Winisd but im not quite sure of the chamber volumes. I want to get the box peaking around 40Hz, witch i believe is the peak frequency of the car. So what kind of chamber volumes you would suggest to one 12" woofer? Port will be 6" or 8" depending of length and tuning.
  5. I don't know many people who build bigger stereo systems in a Subaru WRX, so I thought I would share this for fun. I will post pics up as I work on it more throughout this cold ass Wisconsin winter! Head Unit - Pioneer AVH1500DVD(soon to be upgraded to the DEH-80PRS) Charging System - DC Power 250 Amp High Output Alternator - 0 gauge Stinger power/ ground wire(upraded since alt pic) - Duralst Platinum AGM Group 35 (temporary until I get a couple XS Power 3400's) Amplifiers - Mmats 2000.1D (subwoofer) - Kicker IX500.4 (front stage) Subwoofer - Digital Designs 3515 with a carbon fiber dust cap upgrade - Custom built 4.5 cu ft box with a single 8" Aeroport tuned to 30hz Front Stage - 2 Crescendo Audio Pro Audio PRX 6.5's - 2 Crescendo Audio FT1 Super Tweeters
  6. 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):
  7. Here is the last of the 12's. Its all ripped out now. Moving on to bigger things. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=LqkInkQzq38

  9. Hey guys im trying to build a new box for my DD9518. Im looking at doing a slant face box design sub/port forward firing into the cabin of my chevy cobalt sedan. Two 6 Inch aeroports tuned to about 41-42HZ or so...(havent decided yet) My MAX dimensions are 32 W x 16.5H x 32-34 Depth. I was thinking of making the face 19" H and slanting it back to 15"H . (0.75+0.75+15=16.5) What do you guys think?? like this design... Current box:

  11. What's up guys, I got a quick question. I have an old dd2512 that needs a recone. I've reconed as sub's before and even built some hybrids. I was wondering if dd still reconed sub's as is rather just have them do it if price was right. I've tried contacting them directly but never get a reply. I know they used to do it. Does anyone have any info or contacts? If not, does anyone know where I can get a complete drop in? I have 2matching subs so I'd prefer dd parts so theyd match. Not lookn to build a Frankenstein from scratch. Thanks in advance
  12. Not trying to bash any companies out there in any sort of way so this isn't a "vs" thread. BUT. Come summer I'm about to start a build. Here's the rundown, I have an 06 F150 (Yes I know their hard to get loud /: ) crew cab, I have already decided on two DD 3512's or 3515's so they are the woofers I will be buying but I need advice on electrical and opinion on which amp I should run. No budget limits too if that helps. First choice, just stay with one brand and get a DD M3B Second choice, a Arc Audio KS2500.1 Third choice, Crescendo Bass Chef 3500 Final choice, a Sundown SAZ 3500 Any help or criticism lol is accepted, thanks guys!
  13. Leave what you have for sale below and a price or pm me!
  14. Here is a short flex vid of my system. everything sounds clear in person. So anyways tell me what you think. http://youtu.be/9iYRXABDh84
  15. I'm sure ZiggetyZag (on SMD)- Ron... has some pics of the rest of the car... but I wanted to post a few up I had... last night I finished the trunk off a bit for tbe ... here is a quick vid showing the old trunk setup... as well as some scores for ya... remember this car is tuned LOW for music and it's a daily driver. I built the enclosure for the subs and now the "finish in the trunk". but the radio, batteries, box install/subs and old amp rack setup was done by Ron. Ron's car starts at 6:50 Demo of the Monte pix... ron and crystal (old rims) new rims
  16. Okay so like i said yesterday i got my DD9518H supercharged with dual .5 coils they read a perfect .5 on the multimeter but when i do parallel or series they only read .2 or .1 i want to get a 1ohm load only what could be going on any advice etc... ?

    i have to dd m3a amps and 2 dd 9512s. wat power will i truely get outta the amps with the subs bein dual 2
  18. So here is a build I did for someone over the winter. it is 2 9512g's on 2 m1b's. soundstream mids and highs, soundstream x3 4 channel on mids and highs. anyways here is a short vid of it. http://youtu.be/_MNMMvEtVzc
  19. Hey folks, its been a long time. Im finally getting to do something I've wanted to do for a while! And that's a fatass quarterwave enclosure for a beefy 10 tuned lowwww. I recently acquired a DD audio ESP 10 with 9500 soft parts and a 9000 series motor. I have no idea what the T/S parameters are and frankly i dont give three shits! 30hz is the line length we are shooting for. UPDATE: line length ended up being 29hz. Right now I im running 2 memphis m5 10s at 25hz on a STEG k203. My M2c should be in tomorrow so I can start doing sloppy things and making more bass. Box is built for the DD !
  20. If you had 700$ to buy a sub or subs and amp what would you personally get it can be 2 12s or 1 15! To be louder than my previous 2 sa12s on a saz1500d
  21. ok so I talked about this in my status and thought I would create a thread. anyways so sometimes one of my subs looks like it is moving more than the other. it isn't always the same one. sometimes its the right sub and sometimes its the left. but sometimes it is in sync. so I'm not sure. I checked each coil, all my wiring, and everything checks out. my subs are identical (DD likes to mess things up sometimes). I'm thinking this is just an illusion but like I said I am not sure. my electrical is still supper weak so idk maybe my amp doesn't like it. anyways anybody have any ideas?
  22. Today i am gonna get a DD9518i supercharged dual .5 coils which will be getting powered by my DDM2b but i want to know if it would be safe to run at .25 i have the big 3 all my wires are Phoenix gold 0 gauge and my front battery is stock and in the back i have a XS POWER XP3000 i dont really drop volts lowest i see is 13.8v and that was with my old set up a regular DD9518G on a hifonics bxi 2608D at 1ohm my volts wouldnt really move would it be safe to run my DDM2B at .25 or should i just keep it at 1ohm
  23. Hi, I recently purchased 1x 2512 dual 2 and I will amp it with RF T1001BD @1ohm. Can you give me some infos about the box, i listen to rap/trap/chillout/electronic music so i guess i need some combined low-medium frequencies. what specs do you recomend? the sub and the port i was thinking to face forward to trunk or inside the car. One of the recomendation i got is to go with: 34x16x15, port width 2.8-3 and length 30" that will give me about 2.4ft3 net, port area of aprox 40in3 and frequency of 36hz. I have a Subaru Legacy Sedan (40inches max width, for depth i can go as much as 50inches and the height is a little problematic, 15inches max) Please excuse me for bad english. Thank you
