  1. Hi everyone, I made a custom GPT on OpenAI, just search for BoomBoomBoxBuilder,. You can ask it questions or you can have it guide you step by step through the entire process. It doesn't matter if you've never designed an enclosure before or if you've designed 100. It will also provide detailed graphs, charts, simulations, 3D rendering, Cut Sheet and much more. Just ask. It uses WinISD, REW and more to help design the most optimal enclosure possible for your build. Please try out and leave me a review. This is my first try at ever doing something like this so please let me know how it works out for you and I am open to suggestions on how I can make it better. Here is a direct link to it https://chatgpt.com/g/g-6HLhjOa1w-boomboomboxbuilder-ai-subwoofer-enclosure-designer Thank you.

  2. I know I can strap two compatible amps together for double the power, so two 2000w 1-ohm stable amps should be 4000w 2-ohm, right? So could I wire the D1 sub to a 2-ohm load to the strapped amps at the 2-ohm load, or should I just buy the D2 ver. and run the amps to a single voice coil, or like wire the D2 sub to a 2ohm load. I'm using two CT-2000.1d amps and a single SunDown zv6 12 D1. Should I buy new parts or could I hook them up? I don't wanna blow this expensive gear, I can return them if I've made any mistakes in my calculations so.
  3. The D'Amore Engineering AF subwoofer line is shipping now! Just in time for the holiday. We are running Black Friday Week starting tonight at 8pm. These are single 4 ohm coil, LOW Bass in a small enclosure, very low distortion, VERY musical subwoofers. The coils are around 3.5 ohms making them great for a single woofer on a single Class A/B amp bridged, or a 3 or 4 subwoofer system on a 1 ohm stable mono amplifier. EVERY single one of these is fully tested before they leave here and come with the ACTUAL T/S parameters for that specific woofer!!! An industry first? Take a look at them here: http://www.damoreengineering.com/subwoofers.html For the sale, here is what we are doing: Buy 1, get 1 at 50% off Buy 2, get 1 free!
  4. Check out our 10 gauge pure copper speaker wire! 12 gauge is usually too small for high powered subs, and 8 gauge is overkill, and usually wont fit in most terminals... 10 gauge is just right, and it's two stranded and super flexible for easy routing. Check it out!! only $75 shipped for a 100 foot spool anywhere in the 48 united states. Contact us for per-foot pricing! www.mechman.com http://www.mechman.com/accessories/cable/10-gauge-heavy-duty-pure-copper-ofc-speaker-wire-100-foot-spool-blue/
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. does anybody have two aa mayhem dust covers for sale? Needed asap for a 18" subwoofer!
  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. So i made an earlier thread and decided to just make a single larger aeroport. originally it was a puny 4" with a shit rigged set up. so i went to Lowes and picked up a 2' tube of 6" PVC pipe and here's the difference. now the green PVC is just the left over pipe and the rest is of course installed. i had a 40"x16"x16" box, and a gross with displacement an overall ~4.5ft^3 box. now with that puny 4" this called for a 4"x~4.5"(35Hz) aeroport. this was horrendous with port noise and low output. i changed out to the 6" which called for a 6"x~14.5"(32Hz) aeroport and it made a world of difference. it was much louder on lower volumes, and before i could only feel the bass in my hands when they were vibrating with the rest of the car. with the 6", i can literally feel my throat caving in(not really) and my ears having sharp pain. now this was just a box upgrade(doing the Big 3 upgrade with 0AWG and a Kinetik HC1800) but it was felt almost twice as loud!!
  10. Since im shrinking my box from 10 cubes to 8.5 do i still need both 8 " aero ports I had two 8" aero ports in a box that was 9.83 to 10 cubes net but now im shrinking my box to 8 to 8.5 cubic ft net. Can i get away with only using one 8" aero port. I seen a guy who had a box that was like 9 cubes net with four sundown niteshade 12s on about 8k and it was nasty loud. so im wondering since im going to 8-8.5 roughly on the same power this should work rite????
  11. alright so this guy was telling me something that i disagreed on, and well, you guys can just read it and put your own input. Heres the Arguement, just let me know what you guys think.
  12. I have 2 PSI Platform 2 12's at 1800 watts rms 1 ohm powered by DS18 Hooligan 5000 watt rms amp to power them, I used to have Soundstream arachnid 8000 watt max 4000 watt rms until it crapped out. Pretty sure it lied about it's output but could have been user error. They are run in a series-parallel circuit. The box is 4 cubic feet tuned to 40hz. The left sub's cutout is a little small so there is a little bit of air leak coming through there. the speaker wire is 8 gauge and the power wiring is all 0 gauge. I have a line converter as well. They've start to smell funny when I turn up the music and play a song for more than 30 seconds, at first I thought it was a power issue so I just installed a new 360 amp alternator from apex alts. the setup is running in a 2013 Mazda 6. I have 3 batteries at 650 cca plus the high output alt to power the setup but I am still having this smell. I'm not saying I couldn't have done something wrong, but I would like to know the source of the issue, any help would be great. The smell is like when you buy a new video game and open up the case. Nothing smells burnt just odd. My subs do not feel hot at all, just slightly warm, like they should. I have had this set-up for 3 years roughly, and just keep my gain turned down as I do not want to damage anything. Except for when I installed the new alt, I then re-adjusted my gain. Any help would be greatly appreciated, please let me know if I screwed up doing something. Thanks
  13. 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
