So I'm planning on upgrading my door speakers and I want to add 2 of the same speakers to the system by making a center console so the front would be set up like this- ][. However I havnt found any information on how I should build the speaker section of the center console. Do I build it so that they are enclosed, opened up so they share the same air within the interior of the console? Also should I use seperat tweeters and a horn (the speakers going into the door have built in tweeters)? Here are the speakers going into the doors and center console DS18 PRO-HY6.4B 6.5". Thank yall so much for the help!
I have 2 PSI Platform 2 12's at 1800 watts rms 1 ohm powered by DS18 Hooligan 5000 watt rms amp to power them, I used to have Soundstream arachnid 8000 watt max 4000 watt rms until it crapped out. Pretty sure it lied about it's output but could have been user error. They are run in a series-parallel circuit. The box is 4 cubic feet tuned to 40hz. The left sub's cutout is a little small so there is a little bit of air leak coming through there. the speaker wire is 8 gauge and the power wiring is all 0 gauge. I have a line converter as well. They've start to smell funny when I turn up the music and play a song for more than 30 seconds, at first I thought it was a power issue so I just installed a new 360 amp alternator from apex alts. the setup is running in a 2013 Mazda 6. I have 3 batteries at 650 cca plus the high output alt to power the setup but I am still having this smell. I'm not saying I couldn't have done something wrong, but I would like to know the source of the issue, any help would be great. The smell is like when you buy a new video game and open up the case. Nothing smells burnt just odd. My subs do not feel hot at all, just slightly warm, like they should. I have had this set-up for 3 years roughly, and just keep my gain turned down as I do not want to damage anything. Except for when I installed the new alt, I then re-adjusted my gain. Any help would be greatly appreciated, please let me know if I screwed up doing something. Thanks
