  1. Well, installed my D3400 today, resting voltage at 12.9 when I put it in, and it's definitely a huge improvement of what I had before! Let it run for about 15 minutes after installing and ended with a resting voltage of 13.5 Those terminals definitely set it off, hats off to XS Power and Geoff for making awesome products! Mechman install should be coming in the next couple of days.
  2. Alright, I've yet to dive into running speaker wire from my 4ch into each door, but I noticed my Explorer has a door molex on the drivers side. Did some searching and for the life of my couldn't find a good guide on how to separate it and pass a run of wire through it. It may be easier thani'm thinking, as i'm familiar with molex locks and terminals from work. Guess i'm just asking if aybody has experience with these and could give me some tips and a heads up for anything unexpected when passing wires through these.
  3. Alright guys, decided to wait until the build was finished to start a log. Gear list is H/u - Alpine CDE-123 Subs- 2 AQ HDC3 15's Aluminum coil Sub Amp - AQ3500d.1 4ch Amp - Alpine mrp-f300 Door speakers - Polk DXI 570 x4 2 Pos and Neg runs of Knu OFC All Knu RCAs Electrical consists of a Mechman 270A alt, D3400 up front, and a D3100 in the back. All connected with ProjectDB battery terminals. Anywho, on to the pictures....i'm sure i'm forgetting something or leaving pictures out. Alt compared to stock D3400 in with stock wiring Double-up of big 3 added, because I know an upgrade is bound to happen It was hard drilling into the Ex All grommets put in place Runs finished to the back Not the prettiest thing, but made brackets to keep my fuse holders in place. (old Droid Eris with no flash FTL) Coming up from under the car, wires were ran of the drivers side. Woo! Alot more time than I thought it was going to take. Shot of the runs covered in conduit from the front Under the car look at the wires coming in the cabin What the runs looked like before the conduit clamps. Free conduit from work FTW! Ya know, looks just a little tidier with the clamps on.... Used the spots that the running boards bolted into since they weren't being used And now a few random shots of the equipment... Amp size comparison to the Zune Yum XS goodness Can't have a badass crimp without these
  4. Anyone ever do it? I am dying to try it because it seems like it works but then I've also read horror stories about it and I heard that you MUST change your spark plugs and oil within 100 miles after doing it, is that true? Any input on this would be great. Just found a tutorial on here. Seems like a good idea, any input from anyone though before I take the plunge?
  5. These are the plans for the new box that i'm building for my 2002 Explorer, and yes it will fit. It's for 4 18" Acoustic Audio 18's, so yes this is a budget build. As in under $800 build... but here's the specs for the box: 1" MDF all around Dimensions: 40 x 39 x 22 Port Dimensions: 20 x 37.5 x 3.5 Gross Volume: 16.27 ft^3 Tuning Frequency: 29.41Hz Port Area: 131.25 in^2 there will be a 1/4 sheet of MDF on top of the face sheet for counter sink... This is similar to lil_wallbangers 4 18 box as far as port design. the subs are "Light weights" and only weigh 17 pounds each... but that's all my budget allows. but ill still build the box up to 1 1/2 to 3" or so.. Let me know what you think http://www.facebook....&type=1 http://www.facebook....&type=1 http://www.facebook....&type=1 I could not get the images posted so you have to use the links, sorry.
