  1. Looking to build a box for a friend of mine for his 2 skar 12s he believes there just the SDRs but he has a trailblazer and likes slot ported either one in the center or one on each end of the enclosure. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Only done one other build for my American Bass XFL1544s.
  2. here is a little video of my 2 12 doing work on 2 Hifonics BRZ 1,700d. this was way before the amps where tuned with the dd1. each sub is getting around 1,200 rms at 2 ohm
  3. I would like someone to design a box for a zvx 15 that is ported at @32hz and is 3 ft^3, the cut out is 13.9, sub woofer displacement is 0.17 ft^3 , and the mounting depth is 9.3. It will be a trunk box so port back sub back and would like it to be double baffled, willing to pay for a good design thanks!!!! Will be running an aq2200 in a 1995 toyota avalon xl 30x18x17
  4. 5 Stars for this guy! Great seller, i see why he is on the Super Seller list! Bought this amp for a killer price, payment and shipping went smoothly, recieved the amp in the original box, with an unused bass knob in perfect condition. I was just expecting an Skar amp in a brown shipping box, wasnt expecting a bass knob either. Amp works flawlessly. Easy to get a hold of, and even messaged me to check up and make sure everything was working correctly! Great seller, hope to do business with him again!
  5. I just bought a dd1 distortion detector and I was wondering what track I should play to tune my amp. They have -5db, -10db, and -15db. I currently use a usb with all songs downloaded at -7.5db and want the loudest and cleanest sound I can get out of it. I have 4 skar ddx 15s on a crescendo 4.5k @ 1 ohm. And will using a dd1 make my system much louder if tuned right?
  6. Hey guys I am looking to start a new build in my 2008 Tahoe. I am set on 4 SA 15's. I was wondering if anyone could lead me in the right direction to get some ideas for an enclosure. I will have the whole trunk to work with. (Behind the rear passenger seat, third row has been removed) Any replies are appreciated !
  7. Finally finished the enclosure. 2 Sundown X 15s on a sundown SAZ-3000d. Running at 1 ohm. Box is tuned to 32 hz. Running 4 neo pro 6.5 in the doors and 4 sundown super tweeters. Sounds awesome!
  8. 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.
  9. Currently I have the Hifonics amp. I am expecting two new Skar VVX 12's tomorrow. I am wondering which amp out of the two would be a better match for the subs, with sound quality and spl in mind. What would the pros and cons of either amp be for this setup or similar ones? I'm asking this, because I am selling one of my old type-r's on craigslist, and I have someone that wants to trade the p1000 for my type-r. This made me wonder if this amp would be a better option for me, or if I should just hold out for cash and either keep the Hifonics or save up for an even more powerful and better amp like an AQ 2200 or similar. I don't mean to start a vs. thread, because it seems like they are rather disliked on this and any other forum. I'm just looking for opinions from others with more experience than I have. Any input would be greatly appreciated!
  10. I was wanting some opinions on whether I should port this box or not. It's right at 3^ft after sub and brace displacement. There will be 4 skar vvx 10s in it running off a crescendo bc2000d. That is an amp rack on top in case anyone doesn't know. Thanks for your time.
  11. First time posting in this thread. Looking for a reliable hard pounding card audio system for around $1k. It is for a chevy Tahoe. So far I am considering getting a pair of Sundown Audio 12" 750W Dual 4-Ohm with the sundown audio 1500.1 or going with the skar audio 2000.1 monoblock (200$ cheaper). Will custom build the box accordingly and have a solid aftermarket head unit. Does this sound like a good set up for someone looking to get some extra bass from using a pair of L7s in the past?
  12. This is the hardest i've ever seen these things move so far. watch in fullscreen 1080p for best quality. enjoy
  13. I had my 4 SKAR ZVX D1 15's since October of 2013, the DDX's came out last month, I wanted to change my setup a bit, I now have 4 D4 DDX 15's, the subs dropped right in the box, they look great in it also, I added the "DDX" to the dust cap & removed the magnet boots by my suggestion of my youngest son, been playing only 3 days they sound great so far I'm gonna break em' over time... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j35liwZ7G9I&list=UUtswTQOpcCTsutA-08KrZEA
  14. Hey guys and gals I have 3 vvx10s on a Hifonics BRZ2400. I was thinking of getting 2 EVL 15s with a RP3500. Unfortunately it seems i dont have the 7 cubes needed for the EVLs. What do you all think of the vvs on the RP 3500? Note: 10s are D 2s
  15. I ordered a Skar Rp800.1d on 4/26 and they called me later in the day and said they were out and I would have to wait. I agreed and I'm not on here to talk bad about Skar, I'm just wondering if anybody else is waiting for them to restock like me.

IT WAS TIME, FROM SKAR DDX BACK TO SKAR ZVX! last year in October I wanted to be able to burp over a 150DB & bass box better at every show this year, I called it "2015, Year Of The 150's" I changed my truck in many ways to make this happen, so far I'm meeting my goal at every show, when I took my 4 SKAR Audio ZVX D2 15's out & put my 4 SKAR Audio DDX D2 15's in on my 2 SKAR Audio SK-4500.1's wired to .5 ohm each, I wanted to bass box over a 150DB average 30 seconds on music & I wanted to burp over 151DB sealed, I was told that I couldn't achieve 150DB on music for 30 seconds that these subs wouldn't take the power, well here's my personal bests since March with the DDX's, Burping-Sealed 152.2(53Hz), Outlaw/Driver Door Open Mic On Dash-153.5(54Hz), Outlaw/Driver Door Open Mic In Kick-155.5(54Hz), Both Doors Open/Mic On Dash-149.2(59Hz), Bass Boxing: Qualifying-150.3, Round 1-149.8, Round 2-151.3, Round 3-145.3, 3 Round Average-148.8 ISPLL Real SPL Burp Sealed Class G 55Hz:151.4DB, 45Hz:151.6DB, 35Hz:150.5DB, Average:151.17DB ISPLL All Around SPL (30 second average on music driver door open) Class NW3 Mic On Dash:151.1DB, Mic At Headrest:152.4DB, Mic In Kick:150.6DB, Average:151.77 I've pushed these subs very hard, gave tons of demos & even competed at a DB Drag/IASCA/ISPLL show in 6 events, I can tricked, bottle tricked, bag tricked, hair tricked & I played lows from 20hz all the way up to 60 HZ, great bandwidth, very musical, I won at Stuntfest 2K15 & I won at the NOPI Nationals in Savannah, I've proven my point with the DDX's, I've hit some good numbers at shows, now it's time to put my ZVX's back in & compare my scores, I'm not in competition with anyone I'm in competition with myself, I do things just because to challenge myself to get better, I put my seats back in & bought one huge battery to be able to take my kids to shows, they watch me work on my truck & are learning that hard work pays off, daily driven 5 seat 150 plus DB ride, I love challenges, Team Deadly Hertz, Team SKAR Audio, It's Not A Hobby, It's A Lifestyle, BASS LIFE!
  20. so im getting ready to do a small budget build in my accord. nothing too crazy just a pair of the new skar audio ix 8's d2 on a jbl cs300.1 amplifier with all execution audio zero gauge plus kinetik powercell and sony 4 channel with pioneer coaxils and sony receiver. i plan on making the box around 1.8 cubes after speaker displacement. i plan on putting in an aeroport. my question is what size port should i get for my pair of 8's? i read a thread on here about ports but i just dont understand everything fully. i was thinking a 4 inch port would be enough for both but im not sure. any help is appreciated. also wondering what i should tune it at as ive never used 8's before and didnt know if tuning them in the mid 30's would sound good or not. i checked the skar website but they dont list box or tuning specs.
