  1. First off, I am new. I've spent many hours looking through builds on here and decided i might as well share mine. I know my stuff is nowhere near as nice as a lot of peoples builds. I'm a college student with a job so i don't have all the time/money to work on stuff like i want. I will post everything I can, including stuff that I've previously done. So, enough talking, here are things that I've done in the past. Enjoy. These few pics are from when i built a setup for a Solo X 18. I'm normally not a fan of kicker but I got this one from a friend. Deal i couldn't resist. I didn't take many pics of the build apparently but here are some so you get the idea. I painted the aluminum pieces around the surround and put the box in. I later realized the port facing the front was an awful idea. After it was wrapped I faced it the other way and it improved drastically
  2. This is my little progression build log of my 2012 Chevy Sonic LT got it 0 miles and I voided all electrical warrentys So when I got the car the first week first thing I did was Tint the windows and installed a sub it was a 12" Kicker COMP with a BOSS 1200watt I worked in a pawn shop I so i got both the amp and sub in box for like $60 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------ Quickly felt the need for more... So I got 2 12" Alpine Type R in a Super Bass Probox I got for free from my job also (SCORE) lol Also bought a 1000 Watt JL Audio Amp ($80) and some cheap kicker door speakers front and rear with a eclipse 400 Watt 4Channel amp that was going bad ---------------------------------------------__ Then Well i hit a rough patch and sold the subs and box for $250 And put my kicker back in for abit then taxes came around and I bought this This is what went into the car now Metra Double Din Dash Kit Alpine IVE-W530 Double Din Alpine Controller Alpine Moving Video Bypass Pac-tr7 Memphis 15-MC62 Front Speakers Memphis 15-MC62 Rear Speakers Memphis 15-MC1AM Front Tweeters Memphis MRA 4.480 (To power those doors) Memphis MOJO 512D2 12" Memphis MR 1.1200 Memphis 16-X03 3-Way Crossover And a video I had a problem with that my amp would just for into protect mode and light were dimming So I bought an Optima Yellow top Problem fixed BUT I had no room to put my original cover back on... So I made a shelf and came up with the idea I can kinda show my amps now I have not had time to do some wire managing because simply I SUCK at it http://youtu.be/AXAOByZuRqAhttp://youtu.be/E2-70Bz2kjs http://youtu.be/zPpksB2N8Ec Car BEFORE AND AFTER BEFORE AFTER Thanks for looking through I appreciate all and any feedback I know there is ways to better my system but $$$$ is an issue haha or Id upgrade the alternator as the first to do kinda thing
  3. Hey i have a few questions about 4th order for my hatch. Was at the pawn shop and they were selling two of the new type r 12" for $120... couldn't pass it up. they have a couple small cracks in the cone but both play as they should. As far as design, doing 2cu^ft sealed and 5cu^ft ported 4th order, my questions are as followed. For the two 12's i should have around 80sq inches of port correct. So if i did a 9"x9" port it would be 14.13" long for 45hz tuning. Should i face port toward the roof? Or you think there would be added gain to kerf port toward the rear (cabin gain possible?) Any input is appreciated, ive always ran ported boxes, this would be my first attempt at a 4th order. set up 1991 civic hatch (work car mpg+) jvc head unit 6.5" focal component in front Have two 12" alpine type r (new style) getting Hifonics 2200wrms cea compliant (i know there are haters...) plan on running 800wrms to each sub, want to have room to play with if i change subs in the future. Putting two pairs of 4" speakers up front to help. Focals sound amazing with one sub but i know they wont be able to keep up with the increase in power and addition of another sub
  4. So I'm going to be getting a 12 installed soon and I would like to reduce rattle as much as possible. I was wondering if its possible to do this in some sort of simple manner? It's not a huge deal but if it's possible I'd like to get it done.
  5. Welcome to my build log! my name is Andrew i have a 2012 Hyundai accent hatchback daily ride. i started off with a 1200 watt sony xplod and a 1200 watt sony xplod 12in in a small sealed box. i guess it was decent for me to see if this is something i want to do and it was i was loving the bass! so i wanted to upgrade and thanks to one of my friends i then got 2 12in pb 250rms 500 peak in a powerbass ported pro box still with my same amp pushing them. and it all started. i looked into other cool car mods and i found leds lol. long story short i now have: xkglow underglow and in car with 129 patterns and 7 different colors with remote and box. 1 1200watt sony xplod 2 powerbass 12in 250rms double 12in ported pro box tuned at 35 hz 1 set of blue leds on a frame 1 set of blue leds for hatchback lighting mb wheels turbo 15in v rating tires (just got the wheels and tires a couple days ago!) here are some pics of the ride so far... (lights are green, yellow, blue, teal, red, white and purple) (yes i know they are upside down) today i went over to my friends house and we tried out a different box inverted the subs and put in the 2 4in aero ports. box was tuned pretty low 25 hz i think. fresh new tires and wheels! that is my car doing some flexing! new build coming soon! first piece of the puzzle! rest will come in time!
  6. New car, new build, not new to the forum, ive had a build log from my 00 durango on here for a while now but it was time to get a new car. I got myself an 06 Subaru Outback XT Limited completely stock... for now... I plan on keeping it a clean install all around, from the audio to performance upgrades. start of the audio collection thats going in the subie. Skar zvx18 and Skar sk1500.1 Cant do anything with the factory radio since the climate controls are integrated... so i got this! Rockford 360.2 with a palm to bluetooth to it and control everything! started the amp rack today while everything else is waiting to get ordered or be delivered. 360.2 and XS D375 will be going under the amps. amps will go on top with the plexiglass between them showing the 360.2 and XS battery. and all of this will be under the floor where there will be another plexiglass window showing the amps. not too crazy about how the plexi just ends... maybe ill add a little wood to fix that so it matches the corners on the other end but that was it for today, im designing as i go so its a slow process.
