  1. I would love to see a video of some one setting up a 3sixty.3 with a DD-1 It would be really nice to see how it would work with the OEM hu. and the blutooth op on it any word of advice would be great thanks
  2. Hey, I just bought a Sundown SA-12 D2 and a Rockford Prime 750 (I know I will get hate for this). It will be going in a 99 Ford Ranger Supercab. Basically I am just looking for some advice, which way should I fire the subs. I want to build a ported box, but I would need measurements. So, if anyone has a custom box design for a Sundown SA-12 let me know. Also note I am willing to take up as much of the back seat as possible. It would be GREATLY appreciated if I could get some help.
  3. 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.
  4. My build: 2007 Pontiac G6 GTP 2 Rockford Fosgate P2D412 in a competition box 2 Rockford P300.1 (bass) Pioneer mids and highs amp Kenwood DDX-418 6.1" touchscreen head Big 3 upgrade interior LEDs Strobe lights Black Spyder halo projector headlights Remin Carbonfiber dash kit www.youtube.com/fluentsarcasm1 PICS TO COME!!
  5. New system in the planning stage! Hoping to have it most of the way done by the end of the summer. The new system i am planning is going to have: 4 obsidian audio 18's alpine ida x305s head unit shok industries 0 gauge second skin roll on deadener xs power batts( unsure on size and quantity) dc power alts db link dblocks stinger voltage meters street wires zn7 rca cables all around Rockford Fosgate t1 speakers front and rear Rockford fosgate t2 tweeters in the a pillars and front and rear doors Unsure on the mids and highs amps (possibly Rockford) Now is where I need some help from you! As soon as school gets out I am going to buy my new vehicle, either a 2000 ford explorer or a 2001 chevy tahoe. And as soon as I get the vehicle i am goin to put up the dimensions and have a fellow memeber help me design a box if you are willing. Also want to know the popular vote on what amps to run and what you guys think would be the best for the wiring on the subs. thanks for any help!

  7. Planning to add a crescendo c1100.4 when I start my build and wanting to run some rockfod pps 6.5s. My questions is should I get the 4 or 8 ohm versions? They are 100 watts rms and the c1100.4 does 180 watts at 4 ohms. I know I don't need to over power the mids but would I get enough power at 8 ohms?
  8. Hi I'm planning on building my own box for a ROCKFORD FOSGATE T2. I was wondering if someone could help me with a diagram with the dimensions, because I'm not sure how to incorporate a port into the box and where to put it for the best sound. I wanted it ported and it has to be small enough to fit in a sedans trunk. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks
  9. Needing some help/advice on my set up and I can't an answer from anyone. I currently have 2 Rockford Fosgate t-1500bdcp amps I am taking out my 2 Sundown x-12v3 subs with each amp powering them at 1-ohm per sub. I am in the process of getting a single Z or X Sundown 18 in a bigger box. How would I got about wiring 2 non-strappable amps to 1 sub? Is it possible? If so, what configuration (DVC-4 or DVC-2) and wiring? Thanks!!
  10. Hello everyone! New to this particular forum. I am looking to replace my old Rockford Fosgate T1 10D4 with something new. I ran the T1 for a long long time then stopped. I just don't feel it hitting in my chest like I remember. So hence the need to upgrade. I am running a Rockford Fosgate Prime R500x1d. Birth sheet says 633 RMS so real world I'm estimating 560 RMS. I have seen the SA-10 rated at 500 RMS but I've seen conflicting details. I do not want to under power this sub. I know the sd.3 is supposed to be more SQ based and has an rms rating of 500 rms. Obviously I would like whichever speaker I decide to have good SQ but I also want to feel it in my chest. I miss that feeling and watching everything in my truck shake. Any opinions or advice in either direction would be much appreciated. Thank you
  11. There is a local show coming up for me on June 30th in PA...12v thunder hosted by 12v Dave... I had a box built a while back for two DAD bd 12's (fs of 28hz) (I wanted an enclosure that complimented the low end)..The enclosure ended up being 5.0 cubic feet after displacements tuned to 26hz (confirmed with an IM-SG1). The original build was this enclosure with the two DAD bd 12's on their own Skar audio 1500's at 1 ohm...It played VERY flat with a peak of 145.5 db at 31-33hz with the mic on the dash and driver side door open (termlab) and also a 137.7db at 17hz....I also clamped 1800 watts coming from the pair of 1500's... I had purchased four powerbass XTA 6000D's just for the hell of it and out of curiousity put one on the two DAD bd 12's at 0.5 ohms....Sounded to me like a 150+ at around 30hz...although the drivers didn't last long on that power (DAD bd's have two spiders total and are spaced apart...Here is a video of what it did on the 6k though... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUHmK_1ZTXQ A few months back I picked up a pair of Pierce Audio 1k 12's (fs of 37hz) for a client who wanted a build....I tossed em in this enclosure on a rockford 1500 bcp at 1 ohm just to break them in and did a 144.8 at 31-33hz on music (mic was in the same confirguarion as last time). The Pierces sounded good in this enclosure but definitely lacked the low end performance that the DAD's had....I wanted to demonstrate what two 12's can do at 20-30hz in the proper enclosure at this upcoming show, but the current subs wern't gonna cut it.. So I did a little bit of digging and ended up talking to Bryan Chamberlein from Sundown and told me had a pair of sundown X 12's that were there chilling at Sundown HQ and had some coil rub from testing. He agreed that he would recone them both for me with production soft parts and a deal was made. I am the proud owner of a pair of Sundown X 12's, he told me I will have em' before the show so now I just need to play the waiting game... The enclosure was temporarily sold in between set ups and was butched by the temporary owner and I bought it back from him at a reduced price...The enclosure is going to get a makeover and some threaded rod to add some support because I am going to invert the subs which will put quite a bit of weight on the front baffle (front baffle is a doubled up with 3/4" mdf too). The set up will be the pair of x 12's (dual 2 ohm coils) each wired to their own rf 1500 bdcp at 1 ohm. I am very excited to see this enclosure sounds with a pair of subs that are made for low end extension. Sorry about the rant, will upload pics and vids as stuff comes along. The enlcosure needs quite a bit of work done on it so posting this will give me some motivation to get work done (;
  12. I have one Rockford Fosgate 12" T0, model # T0D412, that I bought several months ago. I decided to just buy a pre fab ported box and there was always port noise at most lower frequencies. It has finally bugged me to the point where I'm building my own box. Any ideas or dimensions other than the one recommended in the manual? Since I only have one sub, I'd prefer a ported or 4th order bandpass type enclosure for the most bang for my buck.
  13. This is my first system and build. I am in high school so i do not have much money so everything comes in installments. I have it pretty much close to being done.
