  1. Hey guys, I am new to this forum and would appreciate all the feedback I can get! Decided to go with sundown because of all the positive reviews and great community! Anyways I want to build something that will give me the bump I am looking for in my daily driver. I had 2 15 kicker l7s previously with rated rms. This will be for a 2012 chevy Tahoe with alot of room to work with. After tons of research I have decided I really like the X series. I am thinking about ordering 2 x15's with an either sundown4000.1 or the skar 4500.1 (little cheaper) (student loan life) and building a custom ported box to spec. Now with it tuned correctly and installed correctly, do you guys recommend upgrading electrical for this set up? All feedback is greatly appreciated, and suggestions are welcomed.
  2. Can anyone tell me the freq. that the SA-12 single box design...http://www.sundownaudio.com/index.php/products/subwoofers/item/sa-series.html is? According to my calculations, it is around 27hz, but I'm using a port calc, and I'm not even close to being a port expert. Thanks in advance!
  3. Hello, Im from Belgium so sorry for my bad English Im new in box making etc, bud i tried something out on sketch up using torres box calculator. Next week i will buy 2 Sundown SA 12's and i'll be running them on a Massive Audio N3 (1400w rms). I would like to have a box tuned to 30Hz ( i love the very lows ) , subs facing up, port facing up, box same height as my backseats so if i look in my mirror i can see the subs( i hope you ounderstand what i mean) I made a box design on sketchup and i wonna hear what you think about it and what should be changed about it. Here in belgium we work with cm's/mm's and liters, so for the torres box calculator i needed to add 0.2mm on each site of the box because on torres i can only use 19mm MDF and here in belgium we have 18mm MDF.. the only thing that could be wrong is the volume that the subs have, its 1.3783ft³/sub NET volume.. :s here are screen shots from sketchup and torres.. the torres screenshot are the specs for 1 chamber plz help me?
  4. Hey guys, this is my first ever post on this form. scratch that, any form ever! so take it easy on me. Im in seach of adivce or thoughts or comments on what to do with my next system setup. Im currently running 2 American Bass XFL 12's dual 4's off of a hifonics brz2400d (not my top choice but i was on a budget and hey i can't lie, it does the job) wired at 1 ohm, with a kinetik khc 2400 in the trunk to help things run smoothly. Now, i have a stupid pre fab box, and am building a new one sometime in the next couple of weeks, already have the diagram drawn up. My question to you all is i plan on switching to a Sundown SAZ2500D amp, for obvious reasons, the thing is awesome. But I kinda want to sell the XFLs and try out 2 SA12's? what is yalls input? I know the XFLs have more power but that's not a problem becausae the sa12's can take every part of 2500 rms. I just feel as if the SA12's are a better quality sounding sub from what i've heard, and produce better numbers. All thoughts, Comments, Concerns, Stories, and funny jokes are encouraged! thanks ahead guys!
  5. im playing around with torres and trying to design a box for my wagon trunk. i measured the trunk area i want to use my box for an input into Torres.. the back seat goes on a Wedge so imeasured it and entered it accordingly.. im playing with the tuning but need to inputthe Woofer displacement for 2 SA-12 into torres... what do i put? Gonna be running the SA12's on most likely a crescendo bc2000d or a DD 2k something along those prices used w.e i can find when i go amp shopping.. just planning eveerything out ahead of time
  6. Hi guys, I'm new to the forum and I wanted to get some suggestions to add more bass to my set up. I currently have a 2013 Chevy Camaro with the following gear: Stock Head unit Audio Control Processor Alpine 4.100 4ch Amplifier Alpine PDXM12 Mono Amplifier rated at 1200 to 1400 RMS Polk RM component for highs Kicker L7(2008 Model) in a sealed 1.5 cubic enclosure I've heard that Kickers are loud but not good for SQL, but I've never had a frame of comparison and in my opinion it sounds good. I'm looking to do an upgrade the subwoofer to add more bass and if I follow what I've been told any of the brands I'm looking for will have better SQL. An custom enclosure will be built for the sub I choose but I have at mat 1.5 cubic feet sealed to work with (If it can be smaller that a plus). I would like some suggestions on which set up will sound louder and have better SQL when compared to the L-7. I listen mostly to rock music and in some occassion R&B. I want to buy the subwoofer new and I have a $550 budget. The set up can be dual sub or single sub and I want to keep the airspace as low as possible (1.5cubic or less. I also want a good name brand with good customer support..... Thanks in advance for your input......
  7. my friend found a sa15 for sale brand new on CL put i just found 2 sa12s for like 20 bucks more.. and idk what he should get.. he wants to be really loud but he probably wont want to pay the money for a amp to power 2 sa12s at least not a good one, so my question is what should he buy and why?
  8. need u guys to help me out with a box design. trunk box facing front of car subs and port forward use - spl on music mostly rap and dubstep max measurments 30 deep 39 wide 19 tall there going to be on a old school rf t1000bd, puts out like 1400 rms slot port thanks for you input, i hope it gets louder then my aq lol i will take picks when done and videos thanks again
  9. just bought van and want to put 8's up front and my 12's in the back will i have problems with cancellation.
  10. After plenty of research, i came down to my final two options i'm considering: 1.) 1 ssa icon 15 w/ aq 1200d 2.) 2 sa12s w/ soundstream 1600d I'm going for more sq than spl since i have a small car (05' corolla) and i really appreciate great sounding bass. Just to answer the basic questions, i like bass heavy music, both choices would be ported in a proper custom enclosure (which i will build) and i really wanna use less power since i dont wanna invest too much in my electrical system. Thx a lot for any input and u guys really helped
  11. So i've read many threads asking a similar question on a variety of sites but i never saw a good "educated" response which didn't sound like it was written by a 15 year old. Just to clear things up, is there a negative to going with 1 "good" 15" sub, instead of 2 "crappier" 12"s?? I don't have the power, budget or cabin room to run 2 sa12s so im deciding between 1 sa15 or 2 e12s. It's a really hard decision to make, due to the many myths u hear about 15" subs, so any help will be greatly appreciated! Also just to support my decision, does anyone here think that 2 sa12s on 1700 watts is just too overkill for a corolla 15"??
  12. looking into maybe purchasing two sundown SA-12'' subs... what's the proper or best amp for me to properly run these two subs at full power if need be? sundown, dc audio, kicker, alpine... what's my best options amp wise?
  13. I need help on the port tuning the box will be going through the arm rest so port can be too big. Read pic The box so far
  14. How big of a hole should I cut to invert a sa12 with causing surround tear.
  15. I like any people have a car with rear seats that don't fold down. Does anyone have any advice or can anyone share what they have done to make the bass louder in the cab of their car?
  16. Would a Deka 9a31 + xs d1200 + 1 under the hood battery with a stock alt be enough to power a True 1800rms amp???
  17. So the past couple of days I've been re building my set up. I got another sa12 so I had to make a new box so decided to redo everything. Im really bad at taking pictures when I work and always forget so I didn't get that many. Now I don't have anything crazy so i don't expect people saying my set up sucks blablabla because i know its not amazing. I'm just here to share my shit. So here are some pics. I'll get some more tomorrow once i finish the front beauty panel. first off, heres the car. Its a 98 oldsmobile Aurora. Shes a sleeper. Got a 4.0 32 valve northstar V8 under the hood. Heres the box I made for the 2 sa12's. Its about 4.8 cubic feet tuned to 30 hz. I like the lows lol (nothing is glued together in this picture) Painted the port white. You'll see why later I had to build the box in my trunk because my trunk opening is really small and the box is really big haha. 5 inch wide port Just decided I'd snap a shot of the Alpine Type R 6x9's while I was under there Heres the box pretty much all together. You can't see in the picture but I have supports in the middle from front to back and top to bottom. The amps on top..I took a piece of 1/4'' smoked plexi glass and put sliding rails on the side then mounted it to the box and then mounted the amps to that so I can slide the amps in and out when i need to access them or show them off. Both subs in! Heres the amp rack slid out a little bit. they slide out more but i didn't have anything screwed down at this point so didn't want the amps falling off. Night shot And this is the reason I painted the port white. I'll upload more pictures tomorrow after I finish the beauty panel. I'm gonna wrap it in black vinyl. Hopefully will come out good. Let me know what you guys think of my build! I know its not "amazing" but im happy with it for now. Hopefully getting an aq2200 soon to replace the hifonics.
  18. I have two sa12s on a saz1500 but I only have an xs d1200 in my trunk everything stock under the hood! My system dosen't seem very loud to me but my voltage commonly drops to 11.5, if I have a higher voltage like 13.5 on full tilt will my subs be louder. So my main question is does low voltage effect the output of watts on a amp?
  19. So I put something in my trunk and it hit my SA12 while it was playing and fucked up the surround, its not broken, still plays, but ik after a little while it will eventually break and sound like shit. Do I need a whole new recone kit now or can I just put some speaker glue on it?
  20. This is my first box build, It's for 2 Sundown SA12's. I wanted to use Torres but it wouldn't let me download it so I used RE box calculator. Do you guys think these subs will sound good in this? I've been working on this box for a couple days and am gonna wrap it in black vinyl tomorrow. Let me know what you think please!
