  1. Whats up bass heads. I recently got a pair of sundown U series 15s, dual 2 ohm. I have a 2006 double cab toyota tundra and obviously, 1st thing i did was took my back seats completely out. Lol. Im looking for box recomendations for these 2 sundown U 15s. I currently have 2 american bass xfl 15s in a 8 cubic box tuned to 32 hertz. Subs up port facing driverside door. Port area is 120 cubic inches. Huge port! They absolutely slam. But im taking them out and installing these sundowns. Could i just drop them in this same box? This is everything i am installing this week- 1 Deaf bonce apocalypse AAK 4000.1 amp 2 sundown U series 15s 1 pioneer DEH-S6220BS head unit 2 DS18 neo pro 6.5 loudspeakers 4 memphis audio 6.5 in the doors 1 Deaf Bonce Apocalypse 1000 watt 2 channel amp For the ds 18 6.5s I already have- 1 brand new agm under the hood 1 brand new yellow top optima inside 1 Xs power 630 farad super cap All 0 gauge ofc and 10 gauge ofc for subs and 14 ofc for speakers. HO alt coming soon. Im currently running the xfl 15s and a taramps md 8k. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks guys.
  2. Alright, I have never done a review for the most part, so excuse me if this isn't to the standards of other people's. For the back story... About a week or two back I got my (single) Sundown E-12 D4 in the mail. Well packed and only a nick in the side of the box, sub was in perfect condition. My first impression of it was, wow, it has more ass than I thought. Just as PWK said, the pictures online really don't convey the real beefyness of this sub. This is pretty much my first real sub haha, I came from a 2011 model Fosgate P2 12". I ran that in mannny different enclosures, but mainly a 1.2 cube sealed box on 500 watts from an RF Prime R500-1. When I got the sub, I had already built the enclosure for it. I have it in a 2.339 cube box tuned to 32 Hz via 4" aero port (right around 11" long). The box was sitting in my bedroom until I built the false floor for my trunk. For all who own a 2000 Civic sedan, you know how flimsy the original floor is. Now it's 1/2" MDF. For an amp, I purchased a BRZ1200. I'm running the E-12 at 2 ohms, and after tuning, I feel as if I am close to around 650-700 watts when I crank it. After playing it for ~40 minutes at that power the dust cap was just warm. Remember this is a 400 watt RMS sub. I read Skip01's review of the E-15 multiple times in anticipation of my purchase of this sub, let me say, I agree with him. On to the real review... I just want to say wow. This being my first Sundown product, I am EXTREMELY impressed. Not only does it get very loud, but it sounds incredible doing so. Maybe I am just hearing what I want, but it sounds so flat in my configuration, its great. The low low bass, mid, and high bass all sound about the same volume, that in its self blows me away. This thing hits so damn hard too. People always told me with my Rockford setup that it hits hard and is super clean sounding, and I agreed. Assuming that was because of the sealed enclosure.... now, I doubt that thought because it hits harder more accurately in this ported box. I can feel the bass in my whole body, mouth, feet... everywhere when I have it way up. I just can't get enough of this thing. Makes me wonder how amazing the rest of the Sundown line is. Also, it eats all the Decaf I throw at it, on some of the lowest of the low notes, with the driver door open, my back windshield flexes a good couple mm. I don't know if this effect will ever wear off, but whenever I know there is a really deep note in a song (28-35 Hz) I expect there to be some roll off and the note to be quieter... Not with this bad boy, flat all the way down. I can't say anything but positive comments about this sub. I recommend it to anybody in the market looking for a sub that has a great combo of SQ, and loudness on a budget. This is by far the best $110 I have ever spent! Thank you so much Jacob for such a fantastic product, I am thoroughly pleased. And if anybody is wondering, I purchased through SundownOnly.com. Now if I could only afford a Sundown amp and the electrical to back it up haha. And if anybody cares, on my ear-o-meter, I'll give it a ~137-138db. And maybe a 140-142db burp. Never TL'd, and don't plan on it.
  3. I am about to build this box in 2 hours with a friend, so any quick input would be nice, I did a lot of calculation, tried to keep port bends as low as possible, only 1 bend, port area I think is good, especially since im putting these 2 subs on 2.5x power daily, a kicker zx2500.1 for 2 Sundown SA-12's Let me know if you would change anything quick, from what I can see its setup well, but when you been working on something for the last 6 hours you sometimes miss stuff in torres calc it wasn't calculating the port area correctly, so I found the box internal volume after all displacements and then acted like the port was external to the box, winISD and torres gave me the same tuning when calculating it that way, I am going for 34hz with 3.22 cubes inside, I would have went bigger with the box but with the extra power I need a bit smaller airspace for sub control, I measured the Port Length right down the middle which is what your supposed to do I believe Just let me know if I messed up on anything, even if you look at it quick, at least say yea or no or something, THANKS A BUNCH GUYS!!!
  4. does anyone know when a new version of the sundown e-12s are coming out or the sa-12 looking to get some but would wait if a new version is coming soon thanks guys
  5. Somebody enlighten me on this, I have two SA-8's that need to be reconed. Can I order recone kit's for them and also buy two SA 12 baskets and convert them from SA-8's to SA-12's? Thanks
  6. I plan on buying 4 SA-8v2s 4 ohm to go behind the seat of my single cab F250, I was wondering Which amp I should buy to give them a good 800 - 1k watts ea and how should I wire them. I don't have much experience with systems so any extra input would be appreciated.
  7. Hey, I just bought a Sundown SA-12 D2 and a Rockford Prime 750 (I know I will get hate for this). It will be going in a 99 Ford Ranger Supercab. Basically I am just looking for some advice, which way should I fire the subs. I want to build a ported box, but I would need measurements. So, if anyone has a custom box design for a Sundown SA-12 let me know. Also note I am willing to take up as much of the back seat as possible. It would be GREATLY appreciated if I could get some help.
  8. ok im new here but im not new to the sub world ok im looking into putting a sundown sa-12 d4 or d2 but heres my problem i got about 700 bucks for my full system after the the sub and box im going to have 400 still need a head unit wiring and an amp i have full alpine type r componet speakers form my old whip but nothing else can i get some opinions on what amp and should i go with the 2 ohm or the 4 ohm dvc sa-12?
  9. this is the box i made for my new e8v3 subs in a box tuned to 34hz 1.2 cubes
  10. The reason why Im asking is because I have four zv3 18s in 17.5 cubes , subs up port up. I want to invert the subs but i wondering how many cubes will I gain internally with inverting them. Right now they are getting 4.375 per 18.
  11. I just bought a dd1 distortion detector and I was wondering what track I should play to tune my amp. They have -5db, -10db, and -15db. I currently use a usb with all songs downloaded at -7.5db and want the loudest and cleanest sound I can get out of it. I have 4 skar ddx 15s on a crescendo 4.5k @ 1 ohm. And will using a dd1 make my system much louder if tuned right?
  12. I'm looking at building my first 4th order for a sundown zv4 rev2 15"d2. I have experience building custom boxes but have never built a bandpass. I'm not sure on what ratio to go with. I like lows but would really like something musical. It's going in a extended cab f150 powered by a shark 3500.1@1ohm. Could someone tell me how many cubes for the sealed and ported side and how many sqin my port should be and what's the best to tune it at? Any info is greatly appreciated!
  13. I’m debating if I should get 2 12” u series subs or one 15” zv5 sub. I want to be able to feel the most bass. If I got 2 u series subs I would give them 2000 watts each making 4000 watts total and if I had the zv5 series I would give it 4000 watts. Which should I go with?!?
  14. Hey guys I am looking to start a new build in my 2008 Tahoe. I am set on 4 SA 15's. I was wondering if anyone could lead me in the right direction to get some ideas for an enclosure. I will have the whole trunk to work with. (Behind the rear passenger seat, third row has been removed) Any replies are appreciated !
  15. Finally finished the enclosure. 2 Sundown X 15s on a sundown SAZ-3000d. Running at 1 ohm. Box is tuned to 32 hz. Running 4 neo pro 6.5 in the doors and 4 sundown super tweeters. Sounds awesome!
  16. I really need help with a box design for a zv3 15" d1 that I just picked. I have it in a Dodge ram 1500 reg cab. I pulled out the center console and built a box between the seats. The first box I tried was 3ft after disp @34hz using 2-4" ports and running off a sundown sae1200. The sub was facing up and ports coming out the front towards the dash. It sounded OK but would not play Lowe's very well for a 15" sub. So I built another box that is 3.5ft after disp @ 31.5hz using a single 6inch port, same with sub facing up and port forward and it still does not pick up lows like I think it should. Is it the port size? Is it the single cab of my truck? Is it the way the sub and port are arranged???? Any help would be great, thanks!!
  17. 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.
  18. i was going to buy 2 sa-12s, but i just got a offer for 2 soundstream t6-15s. should i take that instead?
  19. Gotta question for sundown and figured I'd post here since someone else probably wants to know too. Ive got an X8 - D2 ordered and would like to model and build a box. I want to double baffle flush mount it so I need to know a few things. T/S specs, cutout diameter, and outer diameter for sexy mounting. Mounting depth wouldnt hurt to know either. Ive searched everywhere and cant find anything. Can you hook a brother up?
  20. 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!
  21. So I got an saz-1200 and would really like to match subs and amps. What you you guys personally recommend? I have plenty of air space. I like hard hitting lows. Most of what I play is below 45hz so I'm not really picky about being loud up higher above that. I really like the lower 30s and upper 20s. So what are some sundown recommendations on that kind of power? And it can either be 1 12, 2 12s, or 1 15. So what dother you think? Single sa 15? X 15? Sa 12s? X 12? Very open to suggestions. I hope this doesn't count as a vs thread. Thanks! Greg
  22. I'm trying to buy some recones for a pair of SA woofers and I having a lot of trouble getting a hold of Sundown to purchase the recones Does anybody know of a quick way to get a hold of them? I've contacted and talked to a couple SA dealers in DFW area (Texas) and I've sent a couple of emails over a period of about 2 weeks. And I realize there busy but it's just a little frustrating..
  23. I'm looking at buying two SA8v1's from a guy off Craigslist and he claims they were blown due to 'clipping'. Does Sundown or somebody else make recone kits for these badass little subs? He wants 70 for each or 120 for both. Good deal bad deal?
  24. i have a 97 ford ranger supercab and im looking for a box size that will fit but bring me its max. currently they are in 2 seperate boxes 2 in each looks like a wall and i believe that they are 3.7 cu ft each they are custom made but idk the lows dont sound to good to me maybe more power?
  25. 1. Product: Sundown SA 12's Dual 4ohm 2. Specs: Re: 7.07 ohms Fs: 33.96 Hz VAS: 24.63 L Qes: 0.55 Qms: 5.15 Qts: 0.49 Le: 4.84 mH BL: 25.67 NA Mms: 237 g Cms: 92.27 uM/N Sens: 84.22 dB 1w/1m 3.
