  1. Hello my name is rich and i am currently building a 2000 Mercury Mountaineer my daily driver into a 10k daily driver. I have been doing car stereo since i was 15 and this is going to be the second most advanced system that i have ever put together. So need as much help and criticism as possible. Want to learn as much as i can and have a nice build. If you haven't read my other build log i started building a 97 hyundai Tiburon and after having my system up and going for a little over a month the trans blew. was loud as hell needed work but oh well. so had to find another daily driver and wasn't going to give up system so decided to go truck route (5 kids 4 girls, 1 boy) My goals for this car are upper 150 dbs (if possible and musical) (not metered yet) to learn as much as possible (fiberglassing, body work, vinyl work) decent sq (don't want subs to over power everything) start with equipment that i have and slowly but eventually build to bigger and better equipment Build it better then my 03 mitsubishi lancer oz rally (that i miss like a child) alpine iva-d310, pxa-h701, 420i, audiocontol matrix plus, ps2 slim in glovebox, cf Vr804, 2 Vr1000d, excessive amperage 200 amp alt, 2 kinetic power 2400, 1 run tsunami 0, big 3 0 Tsunami, 2 sets of cf x6s one front one rear, 2 mtx 9500 12in d4s, tons of dynamat extreme, varad 1000 color leds in front foot wells, yellow leds in pocket under radio, yellow florescent lights in door pockets walker front bumper canary yellow Loud and Clean daily driver (final goal) (demos, car shows, and competitions) Here is the list of the equipment that i currently have HU: pioneer deh 80prs (network mode on active) RCAs: SHCA Tripleshielded (mids and highs and both cockboxes), Connection(hu to sub cockbox) SBC cockbox (black) 1 in 4 out (subs), 2 in 16 out (white metal)(mids and highs) Singer 340 six phase hairpin amp alternator battery delete painted to match limitless battery with toolmaker battery terminals 1/0 Gauge 4 runs SHCA OFC Big 4 double 1/0 OFC SHCA OFC Distrobution Blocks S.M.D., and Knukonceptz 2 Stinger SVMR Voltmeter (Red) (one for front battery delete and one for rear Battery bank) Skar sk85.4 85x4 @ 4 ohms on 2 sb acoustics neo dome tweeters MMATS Sq4100 100x4 @ 4ohms on 4 silver flute 8s (4ohm) Subs: 6 fully built ascendant audio mayhem 12s d1.4 Sub Amp: 2 DC 5ks with TM dual Inputs and TM quad speaker imputs Limitless lithium 70 ah with limitless and tool maker bars, and toolmaker battery terminals Here is a list of equipment that i want or need may change L.E.D.s for interior and amp rack Cooling for amps in rear More mids and highs for shows Another dc5k Another limitless 70ah or bigger More interior speakers???

  2. *************[Note: Since photobucket decided to nerf everyone's accounts, a lot of the pictures in this thread are gone. I intend to fix all of the posts but it will take quite a while. Photos start on page 29 currently. In the meantime all of the photos are available on Facebook by searching #projectflexington and many are on Instagram under the same hashtag. Thanks for looking and please don't be afraid to comment! ]************* So figure it is time to start a build log for my 6th order wall. Been working on it for a few weeks now. I'll start by posting the equipment I'm using for the build.

  3. Ok, before I do anything, I want to be 200% sure how I can and should go about this. First off I have an AQ 3500.1 2 SSA ZCON 18's Dual 1OHM 1 singer 350amp alt installed 1 xs d3400 in the front 1 xs d3400 in the back 2 runs of SHCA 1/0 positive (fused respectively), 2 run negative What I want to do is have a dual alt setup. 1. Reinstall the original alt for the vehicle; leave the singer alt for the audio system. 2. Install regular battery for vehicle, place front batt with back batt. Then add 2 more batts in back. 4 total in back. So I guess I’m confused as how to wire it all up. Or I might know but just need to write it down to understand and maybe get some input. Regular alt and battery: install as it was just stock with no audio at all. Singer alt: Alt to fuses>back batteries>amp. Where I think I’m stuck is getting two alts to run. Also the two negatives I had from front batt to back batt, do I just ground them to singer alt? Can both alts share negative grounds? Not sure how all that works as far as negatives. If all batts for audio are in the back, would I have to run grounds to the front to engine? or just to frame and then the singer alt ground? I think I covered it all.
  4. For Sale: 275a Singer Alternator It was installed in a 2005 Dodge Stratus. Was in there for around a year with no problems. I had two Sundown X 12s on a Powerbass 3k. Never had any issues with voltage. Was originally $489, I would like to get $300 for it. I do not know if the warranty is transferable, but I know SInger honors his work, so I am sure that whoever buys it can just shoot him an email and find out. He did send me a list of what other vehicles the alternator can be installed on. The alternator is plug and play with these cars and engines only. It also comes with the belt that I bought for it. 2005 Dodge Stratus R/T Coupe 2-Door 2.7L 2700CC 167Cu. In. V6 GAS DOHC Naturally Aspirated 2005 Dodge Stratus SXT Coupe 2-Door 2.7L 2700CC 167Cu. In.

  5. Alright so finally got around to "finishing" a build in one of my vehicles haha. I say "finishing" because it's as close to done without having the new alternator or battery racks built but it's sooo close lol. "Fighter Jet" reasoning will be shown through pictures, hopefully you get the meaning haha. Here are the stats: 2000 Ford Explorer Limited 5.0 AWD Pioneer 80PRS Custom switch/gauge panel SHCA RCAs, fuse holders, ring terminals, heat shrink SHCA Green and Black 1/0 DC AUDIO 5K DC AUDIO 10k 4- Soundqubed HDC3 10s 4 - 18" DC Audio Lvl 6 18s, full Carbon fiber option XSPOWER Batteries SINGER ALTERNATORS Anyone want to see some pictures?
  6. My options are between singer and dc power. I have heard good things about both. I contacted singer and he said that he can make me an 180 amp alternator and it would take between 2 - weeks. I contacted dc and they have the 250 and 270xp for me and said it would take 14 days to build. I want to go with the 270xp because its more amps and heard good things about them but read a lot about how long people have to wait to get alternators from them and when I did try to place my order I can't seem to get in touch with anyone and I have been calling a lot. So my question is should I just go with the 180 from singer or wait on the 270 from dc?
  7. I was hoping to hear a little about what kind of alternators you guys use / have used and what your experience with them is. Like what size is it, for what vehicle, how many, what is it powering, what is it putting out? ...did it fail, is it nearly indestructible, did you have to customize your vehicle to make it fit (and how so?) Basically any information you provide would be really helpful. You can only find so much information from digging on the internet before you have to start asking questions. Anyway, I want to buy a new alternator for my Pontiac g6, but I'm really unsure of what to get. The biggest alt I can find for my vehicle is a 240 amp. Basically I'd like to be able to have a more than sufficient power supply if possible. I don't think there is any room to run a second alt under the hood.. Which would be nice. But I was thinking if there was a way for me to make a custom bracket to mount a bigger universal alternator.. that would probably be best? If anybody has personal experience with a g6 and alternators, please let me know! I would greatly appreciate any personal experiences, suggestions and feedback
  8. So I happened upon this clean blue beauty and for a price of almost half of all the others of similar year and mileage, I snatched it up. My build plans with it are to move my current system from the explorer into this since i will no longer own the explorer in a short time. The equipment being: HU- Pioneer DEH-80PRS Subs- Two SoundQubed HDS312D2's Amps- SoundQubed Q1-3500.1; AudioQue 90.4 Mids & Highs- CDT CL61A Wires- All Sky High 1/0, RCA's, 12ga speaker wire Power- Haven't decided on an alt yet, gotta contact singer, see what he's got. I don't think I'll go with anything over 300A on the alt. I'll have a D3400 under the hood, and I've got a D4700 i had bought for a cruze that I'll keep by the amps. Hopefully I can get started on transferring it all this weekend. I've got duty saturday so i'll have all day sunday to knock it out. The only things that need bought are the D3400 and the alt. I'll post pictures as i go through the install. edit: fixed the pictures
  9. hey guys. i just got done installing my mike singer 250 amp alt and xs power d3400 in my mazda 3 today. voltage is great except for at idle voltage will be 14.2 or so while driving as soon as i stop its like the alt shuts off and my voltage drops to 12.7 roughly.. fans slow down which is annoying becuase winter is coming, but all my lights dim also. the second i rev a bit voltage drops right back up until idle speed again. lights jump back up and i can physically hear the fan speed up on my heater!! any help would be greatly appreciated.. car is a 2007 mazda 3 sedan. 2.3L ill work on uploading some videos
  10. Installed a couple weeks ago my cpillar slide in wall For 6 ab xfl 1222s on 2 dc 5ks. 3 top on 1 dc5k @1.3 ohms and 3 bottom on another dc5k @ 1.3 ohms. Have blown the bottom middle woofer now twice. First time thing I went to hard on it being that it took months to finish and killed the coil. 2nd one was rushing to get it playing for slammology. Broke it in for 3 hours @ 40 and 30 hz on a dc5k @ 4ohns 900 something watts Went to install it the next day screwed up poked surround like a idiot. Fixed it with shoe goo Played fine all weekend till my 4th demo at slammology then that infernal slinky sub sound. What am I doing wrong? 1. this is my first wall 2. First time running 6 subs 3. First time running this kind of power and running 2 dc5k to 1 enclosure 4. Set amps with dd-1 to older 5k cause seemed to be lower of the 2 amps. Set with -5 db track 5. Gain matched both amps to the older 5k with cc-1 6.slide in wall is top L port 7. Almost seems like bottom 3 subs move more then top ones ( but not 100 percent on this ) 5 broken in subs and one new one as soon as I buy another one from ab. Please help I am pulling my hair out trying to figure this out and can't afford to keep replacing subs. Now have 5 good and 3 bad subs.

  18. Alright guys, here's the spill. I bought this alternator for my 2000 GMC Sierra z71 with the 5.3l. I have since wrecked that truck and am putting my system in a different ride. So this alternator is useless to me now. I do however need one for the car I am going to be building. Anyways, this thing is brand new. Never been mounted,test fitted nothing. Sitting in the closet since I bought it. It does have the billet upgrade. Asking price is $700.

  20. Well Its finally time for me to start a build log, won't have too much time to work on it due to school, work, and being broke. Like a glove! yes its printer paper...I was bored at work not too shabby for paper and scotch tape
  21. Who has the cheapest alternator? Does cheap mean no warranties and really poor customer service? I've been told Iraggi is the cheapest with the worst customer service.
  22. ***WALL STARTS ON PAGE 19*** Alright.. So basically, EVERYTHING is coming out. Literally the only equipment that'll be reused are the Singer alt, batts, HU, subs, and tweeters. Thats it.. like even the voltage meter is coming out. I wont have any progress for about a month when I go back home for summer break.. But I figured Id get this thread started.. The weather is warming up, so that can only mean one thing.. Heavier oil. Next, I got these in the mail.. Instead of sleeping at 1am what am I doing?
  23. So i want to upgrade my alternator but haven't had much luck. i've tried to contact a few different companies with no avail. if ANYONE knows if they even exist it would be helpful. would probable require a custom housing. im looking for 210+ my car is 01 A6 C5, with the 2.7 biturbo.
