  1. Some background: I have always liked the F150 trucks and have owned several of them over the years. I had been planning out a system for those trucks for years and picking up the odd component here and there (most notably the Mechman 320a alternator and the XS Power D6500 XS AGM battery. I had planned on doing a system in a Supercrew 4-door and had also picked up a DM810 thinking I would integrate it into the factory (non-Sony) system. Some time in 2019 I decided I was sick and tired of having payments with wheels and made a few decisions that included trading my 2018 Lariat Supercrew in for a well maintained 2016 Supercab (the one with the funny half suicide doors). I had enough equity in the 2018 truck that I barely had to come out of pocket on the 2016 truck at all and I then had a solid work truck with no payment. Now I've got a solid work truck that I plan to drive until the wheels fall off. I also have a daily driver sedan that most of my mileage goes on and I only use the truck for towing, material pick ups, dirty job stuff - you know - work truck stuff, so I'm hopeful that it has years of life left. The build: 2016 F150 XL Supercab Ecoboost 3.5L Mechman Elite series 320 amp alternator XS Power D6500 XS Series 12V 3900 Amp AGM Battery A ton of KnuKonceptz Kolossus Fleks tinned OFC 1/0 and 4 gauge cable A ton of KnuKonceptz Kord OFC speaker wire (10 gauge - 16 gauge) Kenwood DMX906S + Kenwood DRV-N520 Dash cam (They integrate really well) Cadence DSP4.8 DSP that I picked up as new old-stock so long ago I don't even remember. I went with this instead of the Audio Control DM810 thinking I could save the DM810 for a build down the road where I was integrating with a stock system) 3-way actives in the front doors/A-Pilar DD Audio AW65 Mid bass drivers DD Audio AW3 Mids DD Audio C series silk dome tweeters 2xDD Audio 712D Dual 4 Ω voice coils wired down to a final impedance of 1 Ω across both drivers Custom built ported enclosure tuned to 28Hz (the published FS of the speakers) DD Audio C4.60 class A/B 4 channel driving the tweets & 3" mids DD Audio C2.150 class A/B 2 channel driving the 6.5" mid bass drivers DD Audio DM2500a class D mono block driving the 12s wired at 1 Ω Custom amp rack with 8 be quiet Pure Wings 80mm fans (4 ingress and 4 exhaust) All the sound deadener I had on-hand Ampeak 1000W inverter for running 110v stuff (comes in handy when you get somewhere and realize your battery tools have dead batteries) with the Ampeak remote on/off switch Soft tonneau cover LED bed lights Swing out bed toolbox The whole build spanned over several weeks (maybe even a few months) working on it when I had time and trying not to rush. All the fab work was done with normal power tools with the exception of one box trim piece that I used a 3D printer to make. No CNC or Laser work. I'll stop here and respond to the post with the build log pictures as I don't know if the site will time out if I spend an hour writing up a post
  2. This is my 1998 Honda Accord v6. This will be a kinda slow project for money reasons. will be using a lot of my old equipment. just getting back into car audio. Yes i know it needs to be washed but its winter in Michigan so waiting till spring.
  3. So i have what i think is a pretty simple question. If i have a regular flooded battery as a starter battery can i use an XS power battery as a supplement to my car audio system. for now it would be a saz 1500d at 2 ohms, so only about 800 or so watts, which i know is not much for that battery but when i get some different subs and wire to 1 ohm ill be around 1500 watts. my main question is would i HAVE to run a relay as to separate the batteries when the car is off? would their be a constant push/pull from the two batteries that could potentially cause the batteries to drop below 12.6 while im not using the car. the longest i go without using my car is about 4 to 6 days. its rare that i ever go a full week without at least cranking it and letting the regular battery charge a bit while i listen to some music. Thanks in advance to everyone who answers!
  4. So I have a d3400 here that was leaking around the seams earlier last winter and slowed in the spring. Now it seems to be bubbling out liquid around the top and making a squealing noise and it seems to have cracked the casing iteseld, idk if its from pressure or what, but I have never dropped this battery, and it is located in a very secure place so it doesnt move around and is held in nice and tight. This battery see's no more then 14.3v for charging and is setup with a mechman 220 amp alt. All 2/0 gauge wiring, it had started leaking earlier this year but was holding the voltage fine, was told pretty much to keep running it, but I had the option of sending it in, I decided to just run it as it was working alright. Now it has gotten a lot worse and seems to be going all over. Its 34 months old, so 2 months from the warrenty being up, hoping Nathan will chime in, im more then willing to ship it in for warranty. The battery has fans blowing on it as it goes through the amps then the battery, ill post some pictures of how my amp rack is currently setup, I havnt updated my Build log for awhile so you will get to see some new work that hasn't been posted also Battery was part of the 2010 Group Sale buy in December, so 34 months ago. I do still have the original Receipt also! From Today November 4th (Didnt Push on it at all, this was just what it was doing) Back In April 3 - Kicker 650.4 amps mounted in the tire wheel, along with a cooling system, speaker junction, fusing, and battery tray With the top piece it holds it so it doesnt move at all, I have more room then how the stock setup was for a trunk and all my mid/high equipment installed A Lot better and space saving this this old amp rack with the old tire rack not even being used!
  5. So I'm planning on running a bc5500 in the future and i have a few questions about what batteries i'll be needing in the trunk. Currently i've got an XS power d1200 under the hood and a DC power 270 amp alt with big 3 and what not. my question is what size batteries should i go for in the back if i'm looking to run the bc5500 at 1 ohm (5500 watts)? Also how many runs of 1/0 gauge should i have going to the rear batteries? I was thinking of xp 3000 but my voltage often runs at 15 volts and even up to 15.4v on cold days and i've heard that xp series doesnt like anything above 15v? Might a D series be better?
  6. Got the new Mechman 320 amp alternator installed this morning in 15 minutes!!!! The alternator is right on top so not one issue. Old one was 160 amp alternator 320 is keeping everything in Jeep happy now! Going to run a another power run to back for a total of 2 runs to rear.

  12. I'm looking for new batteries and I'm between (3)xs power d6500 or (5) kinetik 1400 what's better for my hifonics maxximus?
  13. Ive seen guys on here talking bout 0 guage welding cable is cheaper than 0 guage power wire, is this true and were to buy. its seems like you can get cheaper 50 ft of 0 guage power wire then welding cable online.
  14. wats up guys , im wondering wats the pros and cons of running tool maker dual inputs to a crescendo bc3500 or sundown 3500? like will i see a power increase or is even worth it to buy them.
  15. hey wats up fellow bass heads, im noticing a a drop in my voltage and i was wondering would it make any diffrence if i disconnected the extra runs of 0 guage coming from the back to alt to the front battery then alternator. like basically my extra runs of 0 are connected to my alternator meaning power wire. but i was thinking bout taking them off and connecting them to the front battery then to the alternator., would ait make a diffrence
  16. Does aluminum bus bars give you a better connection than just using power wire to connect batteries... if so wat the best size to use like 1" thick 2" thick etc.
  17. Trying keep my install simple.i really dont want to upgrade alt.because of the pcm.was going to go with one or maybe two group 48agm batts.but thinking it might be to hard on alt to keep up..then i seen this sb500.was wondering if a single sb500 would be a better option.my system consist of one ampere 2k and two 150.4.no parking lot demos, just a daily.any input or thoughts?ive emailed xs waiting to gear back.but like opions thanks
  18. Recently I noticed (while charging AGM XS batteries) that my PSC60 makes a chirping/buzzing sound when its in Float Charge mode (13.5V). It sounds kinda like what an amp sounds like when its clipping. I dont recall this noise in the past. Its sounds bad enough that I dont want to leave it on overnight in charge or recovery mode. Cant get a response from XS Power on the matter. Any input? Are your chargers rather quiet? I'll get a video tonight when I get into the garage.
  19. I am starting my first build log. I've been doing car audio for about 15 years but this is first build over 3k. I have been meticulously researching and planning every detail and stacking up my purchases little by little for about 10 months but have waited to put everything all in at once. I've always done my own installs but this one I will admit I was a little over my head. I wanted to find someone that would work hand and hand with me threw the entire job who was familiar with higher spl builds, custom wood working and knew what they we doing. Out of all people whom I touched base with including several car audio install shops I was most impressed with my consultation with Brad Van Valkenburg from Jackson, MI. He has the experience, a carpenter by trade and a heck of a passion for car audio and getting things right the first time. We worked together for 5 days straight sun up to sun down and I couldn't be happier with the ending result. Enjoy!
