  1. 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!
  2. Components that count for this question are as follows: Amp: JBL GTO-751ez Sub/Box: Sundown SA-8v2 dual 4 ohm in 1.4 cubic feet net @ 33hz I know the enclosure's too big, especially for the power. That's why I've been GENTLE with it. I've got a lot of amp gain to go UP before it's 'tuned' (a long, long way)-- I tuned it up using the JBL setup cd and then proceeded to crank it way the hell down (to about 1/3rd of where the setup CD put it) because I didn't need any more to get full excursion. Max (tuned) volume at the Head unit is 30 (out of 50). I only rarely break 20...never played full tilt (can't stand the highs anymore past 25, rockfords are loud as hell!) Anyway, the sub cut out today on the way home. Dual 4 ohm sub is now reading 2.3 ohms and 3.5 ohms on the respective coils. I pulled the sub out of the box, and the coils look fine, as do the tinsels and spider so I'm hesitant to think I did any mechanical damage from the big box, but there's no burnt coil smell either. Actually smells like MDF sawdust and new woofer still. Only a few months old. Checked my connections (first thing I did, actually) and everything's good there. Anyone have any input? EDIT: Just measured the coils again. Dead-on 4.7 ohms per coil now. Perfect match. Either my DMM sucks (probably) or I'm a retard.
  3. Would a ct sounds 1400.1d be too much for a pair of sa8v2's to handle? The box is 2.2 cu ft with a 4in aero port tuned to 35hz and of course the gains will be set with a dd-1
  4. Astro van with 16 sa 12's in a 4th, on 8 saz1500's @16volts http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7B3ogBVZR2M http://youtu.be/Pr1poGYAnsY http://youtu.be/vr5tgjc2t8A
  5. basically as the title says. i was planning on a .75 ft^3 box for a single 8, but have been reconsidering that option since most people have been saying that the box has to be huge because of the port. I wanted the ported vs the sealed cause i didn't want to lose out on the low stuff 30 Hz and below.
  6. What if any are the differences in the sax-1200D and the saz-1200D? Thanks,
  7. I am awaiting the arrival of my new sundown audio x-12 that should arrive any day now. I have a couple questions if anybody has the time and is willing to help me out a little. 1) The box I have isn't built to spec. I am going to be limited on funds after these next purchases, so I would rather just use it unless I absolutely have to get another one. http://www.atrendusa.com/atrend/pro-series/vented-enclosures?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage.tpl&product_id=229&category_id=35 I know it won't perform to peak potential but as long as it doesn't sound like total poo or have the potential to hurt the sub somehow then I'll deal with it later, thoughts? 2) The amp I have is a decent one I think. It is the Kicker CX1200.1 (seen here: http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_64241_Kicker-CX1200.1-12CX12001.html?SearchClickout%5Bquery_id%5D=22023689&SearchClickout%5BIgnore%5D=1). The birthing sheet that came with it says at 2 ohms it is throwing out 1297 watts constant. It is pushing the hell out of a Fosgate T2 d4 12" right now and has barely gotten even warm to the touch.... The x-12 is rated at 1250, which on paper would look perfect for this build. However I realize that it could take much more with no problem. My question is, approx. at what power does the sub stop producing tangible benefits. In other words, once I reach "x" watts being pushed to my x-12, raising that amount anymore is a waste of money and/or will def harm the sub woofer. If I end up getting another amp, I can trade mine out plus a little cash and score a Rockford Fosgate t1500-bdcp. It's birthing sheet says at 2 ohms it does over 1600 rms. How much better would that be over my amp?? Thanks in advance for any CONSTRUCTIVE criticism that is offered. Please don't even bother to reply if u are just saying something like "Kicker sucks, get a Sundown amp." or "Your brand is awful you are wasting your money." And I know I am stupid so no need in telling me because my wife has already beat you to it. I already have 1/0 guage wiring through out and my deck is a Pioneer DEH-80PRS that I run active with my Rockford T2 6.5" component set. It's powered by an Image Dynamics 4 channel amp @ aprox 75w @ 4ohm. All this in a 2004 Mazda Tribute that is a daily driver (got an 18mo old son so I only get to bump sometimes Thanks again.
  8. I've heard the latter can handle the impedance but the former just simply can't. I know they both need big power so for the sake of conversation let us assume they do. Which will hold out longer or do the job at about half gain. My future build: (2) Skar ZVX 18's D2 wired in parallel @ 0.5 ohms Electrical: 370 amp Iraggi H/O Alt, Yellow Top front, XS Power D7500 back. (Any better ideas on the back battery support?) and Knu Koncepts 0ga. Unfortunately, due to Christmas aha, I only have the Yellow Top and one ZVX. Hopefully have everything by Feb if not sooner. Would love some ideas! This is all in a 2001 Impala.
  9. So I love my setup but it's time for a little downgrade, it takes up way too much space and I am changing cars within the next year or so. Looking to get a Lexus IS350 or a Acura TLX A-SPEC. Currently have a 13' Accord coupe EX-L, bought it with 22k miles, had it for 5 years and it's only at 56k so I want to keep it for a little longer.. My current setup is a 12" Sp4 Plus and a Wolfram w4500 which I am in the process of getting rid of and replacing it with a b2 riot 7500 and the 2 subs I am torn between. The b2 amp is on the way and I will NOT be wiring to 1 ohm. I'm going to be wiring it to 3 ohms. I'm looking to get 3 8's. The 2 subs I'm choosing between: 8" B2 Rampage XM 8" Sundown X v.3 I know both can take over rated. Just want some advice/insight on which would be better running at 3ohms, what's more of a sq or spl, etc. I never owned B2 before and I honestly want to experience it because I've read nothing but amazing things about their product. I'm just guessing I can get anywhere from 3500-4000w.. at that impedance? Which would be perfect for my electrical I currently have. The enclosure I am looking to get will be less in all dimensions which I really need because the box, along with the amp. literally takes up my entire trunk. And I don't want it to take my next car's trunk as well. The specs of the riot 7500: Power @ 4 Ω 12.8 V: 2500 w Power @ 4 Ω 14.4 V: 3000 w Power @ 2 Ω 12.8 V: 4500 w Power @ 2 Ω 14.4 V: 5500 w Power @ 1 Ω 12.8 V: 7500 w Power @ 1 Ω 14.4 V: 8500 w Also, just a little side note. The amp is an investment, I am future proofing myself with this amp. If I ever want to go back to monster sub(s) at to 2 ohms or even 1 ohm, I have the power to do so lol. So that's the reasoning for me buying it and also the price.. I paid only $649 for this beast. Even the dimensions of the amp is perfect it's like half the size of the Wolfram.. With all of that said, I'd appreciate any feedback or help. Thank you in advance!
