  1. (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
  2. Alrighty, gunna start an official build log for my Explorer. Got a lot of pictures to upload to get caught up to speed, but there is still more to add to the build, so follow!
  3. Alrighty, figured I would just start a build thread. This one is gunna take a while to get done, but that is what us college students have to do. Anyways, this is going to be a full skar audio build up, planing on doing skar components in front, coaxials in the back, 1 Skar SK 1500.1, and 2 Skar VVX v2 15"s in a ported box. All home built/installed and self designed box. Just a good setup in a car that you wouldn't give a second look.
  4. have a 1999 ford explorer sport with the 4.0 ohv motor. i have a 270a 15v h/o alt installed in oem location. wanting to add my 2nd 270a alt. it can go in place of the ac pump or elsewhere.. anyone got a lead to one?
  5. I've reached "Sub-life Crisis" an decided to upgrade my current system for the summer, and most definitely the local comps coming around the corner. My plan is to keep most of my gear and try to accomplish SPL an SQL. The clock started ticking an hour ago, so without further interruptions here's my current system: Kenwood Excelon Head Unit (4v pre-outs)- About a month old Rockford Fosgate RCA's Hifonics 1000.4 Hifonics Brutus 1700.1d Rockford Fosgate p3 12(2) Rockford Fosgate Punch Pro 6x8(4) Rockford Fosgate Punch Pro tweeters(2) Annddddd STOCK Electrical lol
  6. Due to recent financial situations, change in equipment, and blowing 3 of my 4 subs (lol woops) I am going to be downsizing my setup. I have always ran multiple subs in a big ported box or the most recent wall that was essentially a sealed off ported box. I've never had a single sub setup. I am looking for what some of your best experiences with different enclosures were running a single sub in a suv. My plan is currently a 18 on either 2k or 4k. I can do either but if I need money for more important things then I will stick with 2k and a cheaper sub. I would like to try my hand at a 4th order but after reading a little bit it seems that they work best in a trunk, not sure about a suv. Only thing pushing me away from a t-line is that I want to not worry near as much for the soft-parts of the sub while giving it power So shoot me some ideas! I have essentially as much room as I want

  8. I´ve built and tested over 50 boxes on this explorer since i bought it on 2010, i´ve had a lot of fun doing it, broke tons of records around here and also gave me the knowledge to design a lot of boxes for competitors and even world champions that also own the same awesome truck that i have, but, spending that amount of money, time and effort isn´t practical for me now, so, it´s time for me to build something loud ,low and fun in there without caring At ALL about numbers Car: 1998 4 doors 2 gen Ford Explorer, she´s called the Sexplorer btw lol Electrical: Mechman 270A alternator, XS Power D3100 on front, 4 northstar nsb 110ft on the back for the moment, 2 soundquest 0 GA cca runs for the moment, the plan is, to add 4-8 runs , a second alternator wich i already have at pipo sanchez home and 14v batteries in a few months. Amplifier (subs): Loudforce 10K wired at 1 ohm for the moment, 2 10ks at .5 ohms in a few months Amplifier (mids) : Soundigital 8K at 1 ohm Amplifier (highs) : 2 loudforce lfa-1504s Mids/highs: not sure yet, but tons of them Subwoofers: 8 loudforce 8515s 750 watts 3" VC a piece for the moment, 8 9015s 3200 watts in a few months Box: 4th order bandpass wall , 13 cubic feet sealed / 24 cubic feet ported, port area and tuning will be tested until i found what it works the best, mad props to Dave Leib (strongmandesigns on this forum) , coty eager, dylan kirby, scott bowman, zaim nayor, keith miller and jared gibson for all the inputs, without them, i wouldnt picked up my mind on what sizes i needed to use, i spent more than a week designing this box, wasnt easy at all, specially since i didn´t want to build a shell, wanted a box that i could slide in thru the hatch. THE GOAL!! Easy, want to be able to play a huge bandwith, and of course, play LOW as hell without loosing output on higher frequencies, since 4th order bandpasses tend to have 2 peaks, im trying to get a 23-27 hz peak and a 40-45 hz peak been the higher peak the strongest one, we´ll see!
  9. Ive got a 1993 ford explorer, v6 auto, and was just wondering if anyone has done a system in one of these? Just looking to see what others have done, and get some tips. Plan on doing a full skar audio build, 2 15" vvxv2's on a 1500.1. Like I said, just looking for some insight. Thanks!
