  1. Hey guy. I’m really struggling to understand if the sundown audio sa-12 with work for this box. Sundown audio SA-12 1.5-2.0 ft^3 @ 35hz Ported sub box Volume: 1.75 cu.ft net Vented Box Standard Port Configuration: 12.5"x2.5" x 24" Long Tuning: 33 hZ Does it matter that the hz is off by two? And if it does what could i do to make it match? Also on I saw that on the sundown audio website that it says .14 ft^3 displacement for a ported box. What does that mean and will this box still be ok for it. It seems to fix other wise. Subwoofer Ported box Thanks!

    iso of two 12” subwoofers that can handle at least 3500rms a piece...could be sundown audio dc audio PSI etc but let me know whats out here for sell...for shipping purposes for price on sub with shipping my zip code is 06105
  3. So I have a zv3 12 now. Im upgrading parts to a 15" zv4 frame, zv4 spl soft parts/zv4 coil, and night shade spider. Im only keeping the zv3 motor. I am looking for a zv3, any size, 10 through 18. I just need the motor, also if its blown or working, i still want it. Id rather get a blown one for the price difference though. If you have a blown zv3 or know anyone with even just a zv3 motor, let me know. Thanks guys

    Sub/box wiring

    Ok, so I searched the forum, and actually did kinda find a thread with what was prolly a good answer...but the pix posted were hosted through photofuckit, and can't be viewed. So now I'm asking, because of all the searching I've done, I've not got a clear picture, not to mention so much reading I'm confused a bit. I've recently purchased 2 12" SA e12 dual 4ohm subs, and an SAE 10001.d v2 amp. I knew I had to parallel the subs inside the box to bring the ohms to 1. I did that and as a reference I looked over the wiring guide in the user's manual that came with the amp, and the diagram shows wiring in parallel like you should, but it shows 4 wires going into the amp. I know it's a mono amp, was just under the impression I should use the jumpers from each speaker in the box, and just plug 1 + and 1- to the amp, not 2 + and 2 - So I wired it as the diagram showed. My question is, is this ok? Or should I just have one set of wires from the terminal cup going into the amp, not all 4 wires from the cups to all 4 spots on the amp? Sorry if this question seems dumb, I'm just really confused now. Also, I've heard some mono amps will do something with the wires after their connected, inside. Like if each sub is wired parallel inside the box, but not jumped together, it will cut the 2ohm load connected to the amp, to a 1ohm load. Not sure if the SAE 1000d is one of those, google wasn't very fourthcoming :/
  5. This has been in for a while but there was a mix up regarding the second pair of Components that literally just got here an hour ago. I don't think I've ever had an all matching amps/speakers/subs setup. @Incriminator came through with a huge prize. Literally a whole system minus Head Unit and Wiring. Equipment List: Head Unit: Pioneer S6010BS Doors: I65C Components, 2 per door and A pillar Subs: I Series 12s Amps: I30.4 and IA10.1
  6. So i figure i should post some of my own car audio setuo here on SMD istead of just commenting on others stuff and posting "random pic's" Did alternator upgrade for the 2nd time (from a 170 G series mechman to 250 Elite) & wiring upgrade yesterday (for the 3rd time) i think it turned out ok. Not much to see in the cab but it does the job, My source unit, the istreamer i'm using is mounted to the backside of the side slider. I've got some running around to do this afternoon, will post some more pictures of the setup later.
  7. I'm looking to start building a battery bank since I bought a crescendo bc5500 recently and won't be able to use it for a while. So far all I have done is the big 3 in my vehicle with the stock alt and added two extra batteries. Some walmart battery a friend gave me and an xs power xp750. They power a Skar rp-75.4 and an audiopipe apdl2001d "2krms". I have two crescendo symphony sc-650 6.5" component sets and two sundown x15 v.2's in a custom box tuned to 32 hz. The goal is to eventually have a c1100.4 power two 6.5"s, three tweets, and one 8" fiberglassed in both front doors with three x15s walled off on the bc5500. I want to replace the stock battery and have at least 4 batteries in the back. Just not sure of which batteries to get. I was hoping to not have to spend upwards of 400$ per battery. I'm still a car audio newb so I went to the xspower website and typed 7500 watts in the audio calculator and it told me one d7500 and three xp2500s would be sufficient. Thoughts?? I'll post some pics / more info soon
  8. I have a 2014 Sierra crew can, and i have listed my seats 3" higher with steel tubing and grade 8 bolts.i did this to build the best and buffer box for this truck. I previously had 2 sundown x8 prior to me lifting the seats and i want to make something better that i can really feel. What's the best subs and what size that i can put in my truck to get deeper lows? Should i go with 4 8s, 2 10s, or 2 12s?

  10. Some of the pics were lost to my old desktop that shit the wasn't very interesting. The speaker install (Helix Espirit 6.5 components in the front and 5.25 coaxes in the back doors), Dynamatted the doors, hatch, and roof, Installed the Eclipse CD5030, and ran the 0 gauge front to back. I also tinted the car (doors are 35%, quarters and rear are 20%) and removed the roof rails. With this build I'm trying to use some tips and methods I'm not used to...Some I picked up from you guys and some from CAF. I want to finish the box with trim panels vinyl and carpet that match the interior. The amps will be under a false floor so all you'll see is the sub box. As far as glass goes, Ill probably be doing none....although it tends to find it's way in my builds somehow. Set up won't be huge power since my bank account wouldn't like it but I'll try to make it different. box will be 3 SA-8 V2s on my Atomic 1600.1 (still for sale, but won't sell so Ill be using it until it does) my pics are kinda all mixed up so the first few may be random shit I did before the box.... started with some bus bars....
  11. I have these posted on ebay but I figured I'd post them here too....Selling my 2 SA-8v2s, I have 3 but the last one has a chipped basket (top part that makes no difference). If your interested in all 3 let me know...with the gasket on, you can't tell. I bought these from a member on CACO a while back as motors and baskets; reconed them, and have been running them for 5 months without issues. they have some scuffs/scratches on the motors and paint missing from the previous owner sanding down the old glue, but with the gasket on you can't tell. Coils still look good. Looking to get 130 shipped a piece, they are something like 18lbs. I also made mini-crates for them to ship in since I didnt want to risk it.
  12. Hey guys, I've been looking at the Sundown X8 V2 for a few days now. I don't really need more subwoofers but...who can resist that beasty little monster? Every since I got my American Bass VFL 8" subs and saw people's reactions to them, I've fell in love with using predominantly 8 inch subs. I like trying them out and seeing how they all sound. I was actually about to pull the trigger on a set of PSI 8 inch subs until this Sundown sub caught my eye. This isn't a vs. thread, I'm just looking for some reviews from anyone who has ran, or does run the Sundown X8 V2 subs. I'd be running these with a VFL 2680.1D amp, a secondary XS D1200 battery and stinger isolator. They'd be in a ported box at 32hz. Can anyone tell me if these subs sound as mean as they look? What can I expect? Would the 2680.1D be enough power for them, or will they want more? I see they're rated for 750rms each and the VFL 2680.1D is supposed to provide 1300 RMS. I think that's a pretty close match, right? Any information is greatly appreciated. I'm not looking for anyone to bash all the other 8 inch subs, I just want to know specifically about the Sundown. Feel free to PM if you prefer. Thanks!
  13. I have a 15 inch obsidian audio v3 dual 2 ohm and i need help with the design of a inverted enclosure. I can do the building part its just the technical part im not good at. I would like it to be tuned to 33-36 hz. I plan on putting around 600-700 watts on it.
  14. Hello Guys, I am looking to get some help in designing an Enclosure for Dual sundown audio X 12s v.2 for a hatchback. I don't have too much of space to work with but i am looking for an efficient Box Design. I have been designing Enclosures for years but have always worked with slot Ports and i have a 0% experience with the Aero Ports. This time i want to try Aero Ports and when i searched online i was getting confusing information regarding the Port area and Air Velocity. Can someone please help me with this enclosure? The Max outer dimensions that i can squeeze from the boot are H - 21.5 , W - 39 , D- 15.5 (All in inches) Config wud be Sub up , Port up . I want to go the Aero Port route this time
  15. I aint new in here, but we don't really see such kinda installs here in India. I know walled setups in other countries are common but here in India it is relatively new. Some of you folks might have checked my earlier build log posted here I was using 2 FI SP4 15"s in a ported enclosure in boot of a SUV and managed to do a hairtrick. A vid can be seen here Was already bored of the setup and wanted to try something new.. Went through a thread on CACO regarding 4th orders and decided to try one of those for SP4's (Got impressed by vids posted by soundstreamsilverado), Took his suggestions regarding the enclosure and that's how it all started. Once again the ride in which the setup was done..

What would be a good cu feet when im going to run 1100rms on it (alpine mrx m110 )? i was thinking 1.7? 2. when designing, i want to add 45 degree corners. if i add them AFTER designing the box to the recommended cu ft(like not including the 45 angle corners in the blueprint) , will it greatly affect the cu ft of the box? 3. i want to tune my box to 34Hz( or any other recommendations are welcome) , and the subsonic filter on the amp only goes up to 30, how will i go about adjusting that?

  18. I had this vision of getting another 1962 Chevy Biscayne Wagon to build to pull my white Wagon Bis-Kwik to out of state show's. Well I searched for about a year or so and one actually found me! My good buddy from VA had this Wagon for several years and was showing it, It was hooked up at one time, but he got a 62 SS Impala that he started doing and pulled a bunch of parts off the Wagon to go in it. His Wagon sit for over 3 years and he contacted me the other night and told me he was tired of it sitting and going down hill and he wanted me to buy it cause he knew I would get it back on the road. I JUMPED all over it and took a road trip and got it! Now that's it's home I have already gave it a name "Pig-Pen" This is the plans with it, I want to do a Cummin's Turbo 6BT swap in it, put it back on air ride and a nice set of rim's. For system since it already has front bucket seats in it and a console I will build my own console system. Keeping this one a little simple since it will be my hauler. I am going Friday to Sundown Audio HQ to pick up some of my equipment. I will keep yall uptodate on this little build!

  21. I am looking to buy a single 15" subwoofer. I want something that excels at the 30hz-20hz range for under around $640 USD. Sundown is what i want but the shipping to australia always costs WAY too much. Also FI Car Audio does not ship to australia. The Skar Audio ZVX-15v2 costs $360USD + $100USD Shipping and seems to be what i'm looking for but people keep bad talking it. The amp i am getting is a 3200W hifonics amplifier so a higher wattage subwoofer would also be good if it can be found for the price. Does anyone have any suggestions for other brands to look into?
  22. Decided to throw my pioneer AVH-P4300DVD in the new truck, I have more plans also but this will be a slow build. I just pulled the trim about 5 min ago. I'll report back when I'm done For anyone who hasn't seen the truck Stock radio This trim is a pain in the ass I'll post back here when I'm done, working on it now

    4th order help(stuck for weeks) I am wanting to build something like this but can not find any info. Size - Does not matter (2 seater Mountaineer gutted) I have (6) 8" mid bass (2) 6" 3 way component (2) 5.25 3 way component AND 1 hybrid 15" Sundown Audio ZV3 Soft materials using DB Platinum Series 15 hardware I will be running 2000 watts rms
  24. 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.
  25. just finished a build for my buddies Jetta, i really like the way the box turned out. let me know what you think! didn't really get a whole lot of pictures of the actual build but its 3 cubes @ 34hz. got it built from a single sheet of Birch, even got to do a double baffle.
