  1. Bought a kicker L5 8 that turned out to be burnt up, So with a spare magnet off an old MTX and time I found some soft parts that fit reused the surround+cone, basket and dust cap! Double stack MTX magnet gives it a little more height tapped new holes for the basket bought a variety of spiders so I can feel which ones I like best before I glue them in, Everything here is from Lord Of Bass, Including the 4 gauge spring terminals. Coil is rated for 1500+ watts! turns out a ziplock container was the perfect spider ring to apply pressure while the glue dried. Braided 3 tinsel leads together per coil lead aswell cause why not? lookin good ports on point just add glue getting jiggy with the saw with the help of WinISD, it says with all six ports I'm tuned to 55hz, 5 ports is 50hz 4 ports is 45hz 3 ports is 38hz 2 ports is 32hz 1 port is 22.5hz Cant wait to hear it tomorrow when I put power to it
  2. I need some help with my "DMH-A240bt" I'm having problem wiring up my subs... The unit onlt have 1 single female RCA output for subwoofer. And i can't seem to get any audio signal from it. I've tried several diffrent rca splitter and none worked so i went all out and bought an expensive one form amazon. but it still wont work. The amp has power and has worked previously with a different headunit so that should not be the issue. Any help appriciated. Cheers
  3. I have a 12-in ported subwoofer box, the box is tuned to 31.7. What should my subsonic be set at? I was told 25-30 Hz but I am not totally sure.
  4. I plan to purchase some Sundown Audio equipment within the next 2 or 3 days, and I would like some suggestions on where to purchase it. No "brick and mortar" dealers near me, woofers etc. is not an option, 800 woofers is not an option, SSA is looking like my only option, so how is their shipping, customer service? I don't want to order from somewhere that has a ton of old stock, but don't want to wait 2 or 3 weeks for a build either. I have read mixed reviews on SSA's shipping times, but only from one side of course. Any other options other that the ones mentioned? Also would LOVE a coupon code, or forum member discount maybe?! Input appreciated!
  5. im in the process of building a ported box housing 2 15" kicker comps. goin in the back of my s10 ext cab. goin 7 cubes @ 33hz. and im stumped. this will be my first box build so i need ideas on designing this. so far this is what ive got, box width: 41 box height: 24 box depth top and bottom : 18 wood thickness: 0.75 square port height 22.5 square port width 4.3 square port L1 12.95 square port L2 12.95 total port lenght 32.4 square port diameter 11.09 square port area 96.75 box vol. (ft3) 6.662 tuned freq: 31.7 id like to be able to have the port firing forward on the passenger side and subs firing up. but this calculator im using isnt givin me any option but to fire both either up or forward together. what i need to know is how the inside should look or how to direct my air to the port ass efficiently as possible. and is my port to big for these subs. if so please give me any advice you can. thanks
  6. Whats up everyone, i'm new here and I'm really getting into car audio. Right now I have a 2004 Chevy Silverado that I threw 2 shallow P3 12's in. I really want something louder. I'm not quite ready to do a blow through, so I want my first build to be 4 Sundown SA-8's underneath the rear seat, facing the front. I want two 4" ports, one on each side. I'm extremely new to box building, but I learn very fast. I have a few questions, and I would also really appreciate some pointers & tips. Question #1: Since I want 4 subs with a port on each side of the box, am I going to need to put a center divider in the center of the box, so that I create two chambers, each with two subs and a 4" port? Question #2: The SA-8's recommended box volume is .5-.75 cu. ft. so should I simply take .5 and times it by four, giving me a 2 cu. ft. box volume for the 4 subs? That's all the questions I can think of...for now. Any tips or other help is GREATLY appreciated!! Thanks, Mike

  9. I am looking into purchasing two 15inch speakers. The manufacture is "Ultimate" model is PW1550. The speakers were originally made in the nineties. I was mainly wondering, for 300watts, is the 50oz magnet good enough? The xmax is .5inches...... Is fifty dollars worth it?
  10. http://m1091.photobucket.com/albumview/albums/thaiboxing101/photobucket-38535-1339303687264.png.html?o=0&newest=1 One of my best buddies. New project coming together slowly. These go under the massive center channel and 10' tall line array mains. He's known for going overboard, but the moment someone says he'll never use what he has to its potential.....they find out he aint skeered! Cool if ya dig it.
  11. I've always been curious as to if carpeting a box just helps aesthetically, or if it helps acoustically as well.? All input will be respected and honored!
  12. wanting to get some input on these subs hifonics brz15d4 want to put 4 of these in my suv but before i buy want some in put thanks
  13. Hi, I recently purchased and installed my first sub system: Kenwood 9105D Mono-Amp @ 1800w max / 900 rms(2ohm) Dual Kenwood 12" w3013ps subs (bridged @ 2 ohms, 450rms per sub(400rms-1200w peak)) w/ 34-300 freq. response, recommended ported enclosure @ 2 cft tuned to 34hz 4 Gage power wires, 12 gage speaker wire, gold plated terminals etc Got most of it on sale, cost about $350 for everything from sonic electronix and crutchfield. The subs are in a Sound Ordnance dual 12 inch ported enclosure @ 1.63 cft per chamber, tuned at 33hz The subs sound too high pitched of bass, it's LOUD and shakes most of the car, it just doesn't sound quite right, I believe it has to do with the enclosure size and bad box tuning but I wanted to make sure, that's why I'm asking here. So my question is this, is the bass problem the size of the box, the tuning, or the high freq. response of the subs? or a mix of some of these. Right now the subs don't play below 40hz very well which I'm sure is because of the tuning and size of the box. I'm more than willing to build a box for these but I'm not sure if it's worth it if the subs still wont touch anything below 34hz, I see a lot of people here with boxes tuned to 30hz or less and I'm wondering if I should tune that low even though my response is only 34hz. Should I just buy new subs? Most of my music doesn't hit lower than 34hz but still, I want some ground pouding bass every once in a while, can't really afford anything much bigger right now with my financial situation. Any info would be helpful I'm just looking to soak up some data since I'm a beginner, a lot of the topics here are very helpful. Thanks!

  15. i have 4 mofo 15s, i would like to pull some decent numbers and keep it an every day driver. the box will be 22.86 cubic ft, 220 in. port area, tuned to 35 hz. all will be double thick 3/4 in mdf, with bolt bracing. subs and port up port. port by back window or up front? will it work correctly with the subs i have? love to hear your input. new to this big of a set up.
  16. Looking at putting 2 15" Rockford p3's in my car, my trunk space is limited, I'm thinking about going with this simple design with some cheap pvc ports to the side, it should sound fine I would think since the trunk is a pretty sealed enclosure itself, but I was thinking of having the subs facing upward w/ ports facing the rear, any input would be helpful, any ideas? Thanks My trunk space: H-17", W-37", D~40" [or] H-14", W-46", D~40" (lower height would squeeze under the trunk levers or w/e they are called...) Here's a possible design: Box: H-17", W-36", D-22" (tuned @ 28hz w/ port length of 4"x14")
  17. please read the for sale section rules.
  18. I'm new to the game and have done a fair bit of research but still a little lost. I'm looking to get 2 10" subs and an amp for under $1,000. I'm not including the cost of anything other than the subs and amp here. I'm going to construct my own enclosure but I'll either have a 2.8 cu ft enclosure to fit both subs or two 1.2 cu ft enclosures. Subs I've been considering are: Incriminator Lethal Injections Dayton HO's Sundown SAv2 Amps, I'm even more clueless but a few that I've saved are: Sundown SIA 2500D (or 3500D) Hifonics Brutus BRX3016.1D Taramps HD 3000 watt XDX XAD14 3000w any input would be greatly appreciated.
  19. Im going to be using 2 kicker L7T 12" subwoofers in a sealed box in the back seat of my 2017 toyota tacoma. For door speakers im using 4 6.5" Deafbounce Arnold M65AN on a Down4Sound JP23 1000 watt 4 channel amp. Each kicker subwoofer is 600 watts rms a piece and they will be wired down to 1ohm making the final wattage (rms) 1200 watts. My goal is SPL, I want to rattle the doors off my tacoma. The question is which 1200 watt rms amplifier is best for me, I need a high efficient, not a huge footprint, and an amplifier that can produce the 1200 watts under 14.4 volts. If anyone has any suggestions that I should change in my build im open to new ideas. Thanks for the help
  20. hi I got two skar subs one is a sdr which Is rated at 600 rms and I got a skar svr rated at 800 rms can i put this in a box and play them or is it a bad idea they both got the same frequency response
  21. if i have a skar skv2 - 4500.1 WITH A 450 AMP FUSE RATING and it has two power inputs but im using dual inputs on each power input (2 1/0 to 1/0 reducer) what size fuse do i use on each power wire?
  22. Hello. I have Carrozzeria bandpass subwoofer 25cm twin-drive TS-WX2500. that has positive and negative terminals on both sides, and both sides are interconnected, when i connect single side to my amp Kenwood av surround amplifier KA-V6000, one woofer has more excursion than other, do i need another amplifier or there is something wrong connecting those cable to subwoofer. plz help
  23. Ok so i have seen many different answers on this and I am wondering on what is the correct answer. so my head unit is a pioneer FHX-520ui now on the head unit there is a bass Level, not bass boost but bass level it goes from -24 to + 6 its default setting is 0 when i am DD-1 tuning my set up should i set this at 0 or+ 6 or somewhere in between, i'm assuming this is Gain from the rca outputs, and if it does not matter what are the beniffits of tuning at 0 or +6 i just want to tune it for the best possible output, what i am currently running is in my signature as well, I also plan on upgrading to an AVH deck with 4v pream outputs because i feel like i can get better bass response out of these subs.
  24. Well guys, we're back with our second annual Sub Olympics! This is very different than the first time around. The response so far has been mostly positive but I wanted to put all the events up here and get some feedback for next time. Personally, I wanted to do some things differently this year but we were under a lot of time constraints. Let me know what you guys think!
