  2. hello everyone I recently bought two massive hippo xl 64's.I have a old 99 gmc c1500 pickup and was thinking of doing a center console box for them , but instead of building the normal ported box, I was thinking of using a passive radiator,or radiators.I don't know if this is a good woofer for this app,I havent checked the woofers qts or t/s specs at all yet.Just thought i would run it by you guys and see what everyone thought.Opinions or pros and cons welcome.Thanks
  3. Hey guyz just bought a new car and want a budget subwoofers to put in her ass xD Whos up for suggestion?
  4. So I am in need of a amp because mine is just plain bad... Higher bass notes sound muddy and distorted and I really want some good SQ. Money is an issue so i was looking around and found this http://www.savinglots.com/lotprod.asp?item=STL1.600D&gclid=CjkKEQjwqsCcBRDt7_Gts5a91YYBEiQAm-wYEaeYHXj6tqMFNVuKrxDvAt0rGJxgwUnSfGE0ml9IW77w_wcB . Which is a Soundstream STL 600.1. Would this amp match well with JL Audio W1v2-4 12's? In a sealed enclosure? Thanks for your help:)
  5. Hey I was wonder If any of you guys had any experience with DAD subs. I was thinking about getting an 8 inch KMH just for fun. My question is Do they have lots of excursion like the sundown sa 8, do they Handle the wattage they say they do and is it an over all good sub for the price. tI know it say 400rms and 700 peak i was thinking bout running it on 500rms.
  6. 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.
  7. Hope you like the video. There are only the most massive car audio systems in the world which are showed really well on the camera. This is the bass comunity which is joining us together (sorry for bad english) . Enjoy the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jNYge3fWDMM
  8. We are proud to announce our entry into the subwoofer market. We are on pre-order right now, they will be shipping by Oct 15th. The AF (Alta Fedeltà) series of woofers have been optimized for very small sealed or medium sized ported enclosures. They were designed for the highest sound quality in the smallest space. All of the drivers in this series feature: • Aluminum cones, aluminum dust caps, and aluminum voice coil formers for maximum heat transfer from the voice coil to the cone. This helps keep the voice coil cool during high output. • Rubber surround for long life • Tinsel leads woven through spider to minimize unwanted mechanical noise and increase durability • Single 4 ohm voice coil to minimize moving mass and lower distortion • Triple shorting rings to minimize distortion • Nickel plated binding posts • Each driver individually tested before it ships • Detailed Speaker Performance Report with T/S parameters FOR THAT SPECIFIC DRIVER ships with each unit. (An industry first) Sample Performance Report All the info you could want here: http://damoreenginee...subwoofers.html SPY PIC!
  9. Right now i'm running 2"JL basswedge and want more power but for a good price ($700) and a good name what should i be looking at?
  10. Quick question im having a box built for 2 SA 12's i wanted to know if this box would be good enough for the subs. 1 blow through box for 2 sa-12's 30 1/2(w) x 17 1/2 (D) x 15 1/2 (H) 1.6^ft net per sub tuned to 33Hz. do u this that would be good with a DC 3.0K tuned w/ the SMD DD1
  11. i have two shallow mount audiobahn 10's i am planning on getting. i plan to put them in a regular dual 10 ported box for my setup. will the fact that they are shallow mounts affect their performance in a regular box as apposed to a truck box? the cubic feet of the box after displacement is almost an exact match to what the site posts for these subs. im just wondering if i will loose sound from the fact of less excursion or if shallow mounts still have decent excursion. ive never owned any. a little help please?
  12. Hey everybody. Within the next year I'm looking to put a system in my 2000 Chevy Tahoe. I originally planned on doing two Rockford Fosgate T2 12s and a T2500. Well i have been looking around quite a lot and I've become interested in Sundown Audio. Does anyone have any reviews on their x12 dual 2 subwoofer and the SAZ-5000D Amplifier? Also my budget is about 700-900 for subwoofers, and somewhere under the 2,000 range for the amp. So all suggestions are appreciated and taken seriously. But i would like to go with anything above 2500 watts. Any other Companies i should be taking seriously, companies with good pricing? (rockford seems to charge a lot just for their name) P.s Again, if you have any other ideas, please feel free to post them Thankyou, Jon
  13. i need some serious help, I am so unfamiliar with ohms and what not. but anyway the amp only has 1 plug in for negative, and 1 plug for positive, but I have 2 subs. what wire set up do I need? I have heard about parallel, series, and both. im confused. please help me.
  14. So this last Friday I was robbed of my subwoofers. Nothing special, just two Rockford Fosgate P3D4-12 subs running off a Rockford Fosgate Punch 1000.1 amplifier (I still have everything but the subs). I'm looking to get a new pair of subs for my 2009 Acura TL and was open to suggestions. I'm not looking to get to crazy in my budget but I'm looking to stay in the 1000w @1ohm (total) range. I honestly like the way the Apline Type R sound and I have one in my work car ported at around 34hz that slams pretty good but I'm ot set on buying a pair just yet. But anything in the same price range is fine by me. I'm also running this all off a stock system tuned through a Rockford Fosgate 3sixty.3 DSP (that I'm beginning to hate for tuning reasons) and am also looking to get it tuned nicely for whatever I get if anyone can help with that. My door speakers arent the best out there but I have Polk Audio DB series all around for mids and highs also running off a 4ch Rockford Fosgate amplifier. Anyways any help all around is welcome. Thanks in advance.
  15. No need to say. 4 12s in the back would be outright dumb... So ill do what you guys recommend. 2 12s in the trunk in a good box. That way I can focus on upgrading the door speakers ect. Anyways though. I still dont know how to build the port on the box. Ive uses box calculators and know my sizes but it really confuses me. And any help on how to do so or maybe a diagram you could throw at me would be great guys. By the way in need 3 cubes at 30 hz I think would be pretty good good. This is my first box build. Anyways any replies would be very greatly appreciated.
  16. I am looking to be purchasing two 15's. I was looking at two different subwoofers. Audioque HDC3 15s Kicker L7 15s Which one will be louder. I am looking at sealing off my trunk too.
  17. So right now im working on a build for my 94 Pontiac Gran Prix. Im taking out the rear seat and filling it with subs. I have my amp but i'm still not sold on what subs I wanna go with. Should I go with 4 $100 12"s? Or 2 $150-$200 15"s? I'm gunna build a box so 'i'm not worried about that. I think for 12"s I'm gunna go with SPL Audio. Maybe do there 15"s. Or maybe Sundown Audio? There's to many choices! Oh and my amp is a Audiopipe 1800 watt amp.
  18. Hey smd, i have my hdc3 15 downstairs, d2 wiring. i plan on runnign it at 1 ohm, in my malibu w stock 110a alt,(to be changed) 3 runs of 2awg OFC EB flex, with 2 deep cycles in the rear(Undetermined) and my big ass moto master upfront from the batts--amp i will have 1/0, but from the front batt-- back batt will all be 2awg also big 3 will be done in the 1/0.war I am able to drop 550 bucks on a nice quality amp that will push this hdc3 to its limits. I Would love to buy the aq 2200 brand new off their site, but i have a boy who has a sexy DD m3a amp for 500 picked up. So im debating.... What do you guys think. kinda leaning towards the ddm3a cause its rare where im from.
  19. So in a couple of weeks I'm getting a new t1 12 and building a box for it. The only thing I have yet to decide is what amplifier to power it with. Suggestions? I was originally thinking a hifonics brz1700, but I'm thinking I might want to run my system at 2 or even 4 ohms instead of 1 ohm; that being the case should I be looking for more wattage?
  20. Foes anyone have any idea what one out performs the other or the pros and con's of each sub?. Its only going to be one of these in the back of my car and probably underpowered by an old amp I have laying around.
  21. Hey guys, I have a RF t1000-1bdcp. What subs, or sub, is best for this amp. Should i get like 2 12s or like 1 15 or even 1 18? The amp puts out 1515wrms @1ohm. What would hit harder? And what sub is best? Id really appreciate good feedback.
  22. Which size is woofer would be best for 25-30 hz?
  23. Hi, You guys probably see a lot of stupid questions in here and this might be one, but I gotta ask. So I got a rockfordfosgate 12" dual punch P2 sub/s and two amps, there is only one input on the enclosure. I got this setup from my sister and as of now the amps seem hooked up(I have barely touched it from one car to the other, only ran the wires as they were), but I feel like it lacks the expected punch it should have. Currently the two amps I have is one rockfordfosgate amp and another unknown 1500 watt amp(Dont remember the names so will edit them in later when I check.). They are wired as shown in the pic, I feel like this is not the correct way as it seems illogical and thats why I need help. How SHOULD it be wired so I can fix it?
