  2. My good friend Aaron, aka Psyph Morrison, has never had a real system in any of his cars before. If you don't know who Psyph is (pronounced Sife), look him up on itunes, spotify or any other music app out there. Youtube as well. I have known him over 10 years and even worked with him on his last 3 albums as an executive producer. Ok, now that is out of the way, the reason he is getting a system is because well, the entire time i have known him and worked with him making music, especially music with a lot of bass, he has never had a system of his own. I don't know anyone who has had more car issues than him so we really never made it to the discussion of a system. Not too long ago he picked up a 2002 Honda Accord 4 door. I knew right then he has a reliable vehicle finally. So i offered to slap some beat in it for him. Watching him pull up, slapping his own music in a (not so great) stock sound system was really bothering me. How can my boy ride around like that if he know's ME? Long story cut short...his car is at my shop for a few weeks while i figure out what i am going to do. I have NO "plans". I just want to get him some good equipment, set it up proper and make him happy! ****NOTE, anything you see here is subject to change as i am totally freestyling this. Trying to just make it work. First i stopped by Arden Audio in Sacramento Ca. They always have what i need in stock over there and if they don't i can get it same or next day. I decided to pick Psyph up a new head unit first and foremost. I also got the dash kit and wiring harness to go with it. Grabbed some SkyHigh 16ga OFC speaker wire to run to the doors. The system will consist of (so far) Pioneer DEH X7800 BHS Head Unit Rockford Fosgate Punch 1000.1 (BASS) Rockford Fosgate Punch 300.2 (Highs) (2) Rockford Fosgate P3 12" subs (ported enclosure) (1) Set Rockford Fosgate T2 6.5" separates SMD Fuse / Grounding Blocks Mechman 1/0 OFC Power Wire Skyhigh 12 and 16ga Speaker Wire I already had a P300.2 but i got him a matching 1000.1 to go with it. These P3 12" subs are not brand new but might as well be. They are in brand new condition! They are my old ones. This box was already finished and just hanging around the shop. I KNOW it sounds good so it should do great in his trunk! The trunk floor is at an angle so i have to make a platform and flatten it out some so the box sits level.
  3. Hey so I've only been having this issue since I switched out my subs and amplifier from a kenwood excelon set up to the rockford amp and subs. Whats happening is the amp BANGS all day no matter what at the lows but the moment it gets to a higher frequency seems like a punchier frequency (I wish i Knew what frequency it was but i Just know its not the low end probably way closer to 80hz), it goes into PROTECTION mode. I thought at first it wasn't getting enough voltage and my battery tested at 50% cause i do have a battery tester at our shop, so I changed my battery today and I'm still having the same issue. I know its not my wiring because i had no problems with others amps and subs ect. Rockfords support tech keeps saying its clipping at this certain frequency, which I'm not eliminating yet, but the thing is I have my gain set to just under 7, and it was still doing the same thing even when i had the gain set to under 5. and it doesnt hit nearly as hard as it should be unless i turn the gain closer to over half. I just want to know what i can eliminate and what i should try if you guys are familiar with this issue. If my amp is clipping why wouldnt it be clipping on the lows and only does it on the highs? Another thing is it hardly does it when I'm parked, mailny does it when I'm driving which is really irritating because I want it when I'm driving I could care less about being parked as this is just my daily driver. Any advice would help. The other 3 installers at my shop said battery and rockford only said clipping.. I also tested my alternator with our snap on tester and it also tested good. All that rockford said was too turn down the gain but I know those subs can handle what I'm giving them at least I would think.. Radio is outputting full 5.0 volts Gain = ~60% Lpf = ~25% Punch EQ = 0 subsonic filter = 50% 2005 Dodge Stratus 2 Rockford Fosgate P3D412s with RF R1200 Prime Amplifier 4 gauge rockford power and ground wire 12 gauge rf speaker wire down to 1 ohm Kenwood Exceleon kdc x501 subwoofer level set to +10 sub lpf set to through
  4. Hey Crew, I have some questions about setting up my system. So far it consists of: 2008 Chevy Trailblazer LS Pioneer FH-X731BT Rockford Fosgate 3Sixty.3 Rockford Fosgate P1000-1bd (2007/2008) Rockford Fosgate PEQ Knob for Bass Rockford Fosgate P500-4 (2007/2008) Rockford Fosgate Punch Pro PPS4-6 Rockford Fosgate Punch P1T-S 2x Kenwood KFC-W3009 Rockford Fosgate 0 Gauge Amp Kit Stinger RCAs Sky High Car Audio Speaker Wire I'm going to be using the 360.3 for active crossovers instead of the passive ones that came with the P1T-S. I'm using 2 channels of the 500-4 for the 6.5" and the other 2 channels for the tweeters in the dash. I'm gonna change that once I get a Punch 200-2. Then I will use the 2 channels that were used for the tweeters to power two rear speakers and use the 200-2 for the tweeters. The first thing I'm wondering is: if it's okay to run the 2 RJ-45 cables used to control the 360.3 and the PEQ next to the speaker wires and RCA cables along the right side of the car. Will this cause any noise in either the speaker wires or RCA cables, or even in the RJ-45 cable? Second question is: what's the best way to ensure that I'm not feeding too much power to the tweeters? They are capable of 60 Watts RMS but my amp is able to do up to 125 Watts RMS. How do I keep the Watts down to keep from blowing them?
  5. As stated in subject I'm looking for a rf t2500-1bd non constant power model. I have several references and I'm ready to buy. Steve Meade himself can vouch for me. Thanks in advance

    Punch bass knob replacment

    Looking for an cheaper replacement bass knob for my Rockford Punch700s (2000-2003). I'm sure you guys have covered this topic before on the forum but I'm new and it's driving me crazy. I can't justify spending $60-100 on a simple potentiometer and a phone cable. Thanks in advance.
  7. Right now I have installed: JVC KW-V50BT Indash 2- 12in Rockford P3D4 powered by R1200.1D Cheap ported box 4ga OFC power 2- 5x7 Apline Type S, 2- 5x7 JBL GTO8629 powered by R400.4D Shuriken SK-BT45 As of 9/20/17: I'm laying down some fatmat 50mil in the trunk/backseat area. Skyhigh big 3 0ga upgrade Skyhigh 4ga OFC power and ground
  8. Right now I have a T3 components in the doors, T1652s in the rear (T400-4 amp) and 2 P212s (R5001xd 619 @ 1 ohm birthsheet). Ive been looking all over for an upgrade, first I thought maybe T015s and a T1500 amp. That set up would've costed me 3500 and it would've just been a big ass box in my sedan's trunk, likely not what the subwoofers really want or need. I then bought some 12s HDC3s and I sold them to someone else after being convinced the same thing. I started looking into DD and the size of their boxes are crazy big (and I do not want one subwoofer). So now I'm looking at having four P3D410s in a "show build" powered by 2 prime 1200s. With that said, I'd have more than double the cone area and more than double the power (does this mean I'll increase by 6 decibels?) What do you think of the build in question? Will I be impressed? Should I get a box for this or should I let them just make this "show build"? Meaning they'd want me to appear at shows to show off their work. I'll answer all questions! Links to videos of your own 10s would be acceptable as well.
  9. Hey guys, I'm gonna probably pick up this old silver Rockford Fosgate T2 12" sub, I wanna make a box for. My max dimensions for my hatch is roughly Width=38" Height=15" Depth=20" 3/4" MDF if thats cool T212D2 It would be cool to learn how to properly design a box for myself if Someone can show or tell me how. Thanks in advance
  10. So, I will have a new build coming up soon again. It's not going to be anything fancy, probably I am waiting on recones for these as well as a couple of new baskets(anyone that knows that story, yuck). I should be picking up the amp to power them later today. I know these things will pound, our they should at least. It's difficult to get a box to FIT the damn things since they want so much air compared to most 10s. This is as big as I'm comfortable going and I'll have the power to feed these, so that won't be an issue. Let's see if anyone notices anything peculiar about the specs, particularly the port size.
  11. Since I am looking at making some changes to the system in the 350z I figured I would post what I have now.

    Upgrading my audio!

    I drive a 2015 Toyota Corolla LE. Right now, I have everything stock except my sub and its amplifier. I have 2 12's Rockford's P2D4s powered by their prime amp that shoots 500x1 @ 2 ohms. The birth sheet says 619, so that's 309.5 to each sub when the two of them can take 400 RMS. With my back seat down, and my windows down a little, i get a small effect that i love. It's the massage effect, also it some how improves the sound. Now, I want to multiply that lovely feeling by like 10. So I have been having a problem with deciding, do I want to go to T1D412s at 800 RMS or T1D415s at 1000 RMS. If I do the former, I'll get a 1500 watt amp, i'm sure the birth sheet will show the RMS at around 1620 RMS. If I do the latter though, I thought of having 2 1000 watt amps. I've been told that's better than getting one 2000 watt amp. Anyways, what say you on that notion? FYI: I do plan on getting T1675s in my doors and T1693s powered by 300x4 rockford amp. What would your car audio priority be in this situation? Improve highs and mids first, or shoot for the upgrade (and final change of subwoofers). Thank you! Also, I do have an aftermarket, but it's in the closet for now.

    Toyota Corolla 2015 LE

    Ladies and Gentlemen, audiophiles alike, I am driving a Corolla as my first car and of course i hurried into a system. Right now I have 2-P2D4 12"s in a ported prefab box. The amp powering it is a R5001xd that is 500 watts at 2ohms. The subs are 400 watts RMS. I use a stock head unit, with a Pioneer X4800BS in my closet until I can get the insides (that'll be like $200) to hook the baby up. For a month now I've been looking at subwoofers to replace the ones I have. I want to spend less than $2500. I prefer to stick with Rockford Fosgate but am open to suggestions. The 2 12s do bang, but they don't bang as hard as I wished they did. They disappoint me so that instead of going up to P3 I was thinking maybe a T1 15 but I don't think two of those will fit in my car. Can anyone shed some light onto me and some ideas maybe? Also, how much would YOU pay for someone to build a box in your trunk to accommodate 2 15s? Rockford does have a T2 13 that takes 2000 watts RMS but the monster runs for $1,299. The T1 12s are 800 Watts RMS but that doesn't seem like a big enough jump for me (that would be a 400 watt jump on each). Anything is appreciated people! Thank you.
  14. hey guys im new to the forum. I need help designing a box for hdc3 18s. I want to build a box with a removable port for music and spl if that's possible. im running a RF 2500bdcp dc power 270 alt and big 3 with 2kinetic battery's my max demotions are H= 21"(wanted to keep below window line) W= 45.5",D=37" in a 2006 explorer Any help would be much appreciated.
  15. Disclaimer: Prepare yourself. Gratuitous amount of amp porn coming up! I bought the amp used from a friend in 1994 and it was built in 1993 which makes it a lot older then most of you on this forum... I popped the board out, here's a walk-around: Pic of the output FET's. IRF540's. Good for 100V and 33A each. In case you're curious: These conduct alternately from the positive and negative power rail to the speaker outputs. Pic of the Power Supply FET's. IRFZ40's. Good for 60V and 50A each. In case you're curious: These pulse the 12-14V from your electrical system through the primary of the power supply toroid transformer. They help turn DC voltage into AC which the toroid then can use to create a higher voltage AC. Power Supply Rectifier Diodes. U1610/U1610R. Good for 16A each. In case you're curious: These "rectify" that AC voltage that has been boosted by the toroid and turn it back into DC (power rails). One rectifies for the positive rail and one for the negative. Since its was a good 20 years old I wanted to refurb it since electrolytic caps tend to dry out and degrade with age.....or do they? I went to Mouser.com and ordered up a bunch of different replacement caps to see which ones I liked best. The amp was originally built with Nichicon brand caps (which most old school amps were) and they are great caps but it is possible for good caps to go bad after 20 years of intermittent use. I have access to a nice LCR meter at work. An LCR meter can measure impedance, capacitance and inductance at various frequencies and is very handy in determining whether components meet their specifications or not. Here are the old Nichicon's (from the power rails) on the LCR: They're rated at 3300uF so to my complete surprise they are still well within initial specs (+/-20%). (3mF = 3000uF). Here's the best available replacement cap from Nichicon since that series of cap is no longer available. As you can see, brand new, out of the bag and they measure ~2800uF and a slightly higher ESR (Equivalent Series Resistance). Here's another brand (Cornell Dubilier 3900uF): Here is a new cap from Panasonic which is rated at a higher base capacitance (3900uF): You an see it takes a higher rated cap to even come close to that original rating of 3300uF. Really justifies the saying: "They sure don't make 'em like they used to..."

    Simple Ported Box

    Hey Guys, Longish Backstory, I have been working on getting my system dialed in with my current car(01' Chevy Monte Carlo SS)It's great and I used the advice from here and some other forums to build my last box and it went great,Been using it for about a little over a year now and impresses all of my buddies. With me living in Wisconsin where there is snow there is salt and the poor monte is getting really bad in the rust department. So I found a Chevy Avalanche with 4 wheel drive for the nasty winters here. I just want to transplant my system from the monte to the Av. I don't want to do anything crazy in depth yet on the box because I would like to get another woofer to match the other because I have the space in this vehicle, but for now just one. The Box, I want to build a box to fit into the midgate space of a 02' Chevy Avalanche Z71. I have already a RF P3 D2 15 from my previous car and really want to stick with this woofer for budget reasons. I was playing around in WinISD and got a box that looked good to my untrained eye. Ported 6 Ft^3 Tuned to 25hz for a nice flatish freq response for the space I have available ( Around 6 cubes ) Port - 6in circle port, 15.8in long Link to Graph - http://imgur.com/Rhlk3cl What do you guys think? Am I way off?
  17. I have recently just purchased a Rockford Fosgate P3 12" inch sub. I want to build a box but not really sure if it's best to stay within the manufactures recommended dimensions of .75 to 1.25 for a sealed box. And then the subject of what provides better sound, from a box thats taller than long, or longer than tall. Then the subject of facing the sub towards the back seat or out into the trunk. Can some one help me out? I'm very knowledgeable to car audio, just not at going beyond manufacturers recommended volume and trunks.
  18. Got a great offer on my kenwood subs so I sold them, looking to upgrade to some 15" fosgates, I already have a 1800w kenwood mono amp. Just wondering how much of a difference there is between the p1 and p3 models I'm looking at, the p1 rms is 250 4 ohm, p3 rms 600 2 ohm. I can get 2 p1's brand new for $200, or 2 p3's for $300, worth the extra $100? Does anyone have personal experience with both subs? Thanks!
  19. The reason that I am making this forum post is to check my thinking with the pros so I do not waste any of my budget in building a bad box. Setup: 01 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS , (2) RF Punch P3 15 D2 , (2) Pioneer GM-9601 , In a trunk 4th order (hopefully) I used WinISD to get these numbers and I wanted a flat freq response rate from the box , so to achieve this I tuned both chambers to 30hz (Is this a bad thing to do?) The first front facing chamber is ported @ 6.43 cubes and the rear sealed chamber (subs mounted into this chamber) @ 11.7 cubes. Does all this seem Ok or do I really need some major help? Thanks!
  20. the t5 RF 6.5" comps are MSRPed at $1700 why so freaking much. 150rms so im assuming 300rms for the pair. has anyone heard these in person? anyone actually own these?
  21. I have 2 RF P3D2-15 in a 2004 avalanche midgate that are currently on a free air setup with my bed acting as a huge box. I have tried using a program to design my ported box but it failed miserably and sounded terrible so i threw it out. Now I need professional help, I already have around a 4" wide (may be wider not 100% sure ) 16" tall square hole cut for the port from the old box that i could use but I need the depth, width, port length, etc.. does anyone have a diagram they could give me or some tips? And the perfect height was also 18" so if that could also be a set factor that'd be great. Would like it tuned to the low 30s. Any help is appreciated thanks!
  22. This is my first true build by myself. I'm expecting some props and hate from this type of community and I'll take everything with a grain of salt. No butt-hurt here. For this build I didn't have all the proper tools or even the knowledge to know what the hell I was doing. So after countless YouTube videos and questions I've asked on Facebook these are the results that are presented. (FYI - My 2-chan amp blew the 1st channel and so my subs are actually just for show and aren't hooked up.) 2011 Kia Forte Koup SX Pioneer AVH-3500BHS head unit T600-2 amp 2x Punch P3D410 subs T400-4 amp 4x Punch P1562S component speakers NVX sound deadener in the trunk Custom false floor Of course this could have been done better, but I've had a lot of praise from car enthusiasts at the last two events I've been to. So for a first time this is pretty good I'd say.

  25. This build is expected to move slow. My plans for this build are to keep it small with a little bump and some clarity, but do it right and keep it clean. I want every thing done in a way that I can easily return the vehicle to factory stock. My thoughts on equipment Items I have Head unit - Alpine CDA-9887 http://www.alpine-usa.com/product/view/cda-9887/ Subwoofers - 2 x Massive Summo 64 http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_74658_Massive-Audio-SUMMO-64.html vehicle deadening - KnuKonceptz Kno Knoise Sound Deadening Door Kit 14sq ft 80mil http://www.knukonceptz.com/mobile-audio/sound-deadening/kno-knoise-resonance-control/sp/kno-knoise-resonance-control-2-door-kit-14sq-ft/ Rockford Fosgate T400.4 http://www.rockfordfosgate.com/products/details/t400-4 Items that I still need to work on acquiring Sub Amp - Undecided but I know it will be Rockford. Either a P300-1 or one of those new PBR500X1 they bothe do 300 rms @ 2ohm The Box - Still undecided on the design but have been sketching up a few ideas. Speaker wiring - I will be on the look out for some 12 gauge OFC Power and Ground - Although overkill I will be saving for the Rockford Fosgate RFK1D DUAL AMP 1/0 AWG Amplifier WIRING KIT Door Speakers - Still debating a nice set of components for the front doors. Kick panels - Wanting to do a Mid bass driver in one of those Q-form kick panels that they already make for the F-150 Still trying to recover financially from my wife's trimalleolar fracture on her left leg. Thankfully she did heal well and is back to work now. That being said I have been collecting a little here and a little there when ever I had some spare change. Now on with the build and a few pictures. 2004 F-150 Crew cab (toreador red) This truck was equipped with the factory subwoofer under the rear seats. You will also see that I got the really nice floor mats to protect the carpet . And the very first and only thing I have done so far is change out the factory radio for an Alpine CDA-9887.
