Recommended Posts

Well, i decided to trash my old build thread from a year ago, and make a complete new one for 2011, with ALL NEW gear and equipment.

Now, i have been 100% bass-less since september of 2010 (6 months) and it has SUCKED, i sold the setup after TNESPL finals cause i had a few things i had to pay off and i had planned on upgrading anyway.

Now for speakers

Now my original plan was to run Image Dynamics CTX65cs components upfront, unfortunately i can not use them due to mounting issues in my vehicle.

I had even made these nice speaker rings for them:

Here is a pic of one of my Powerbass 4XL 6.5s in there:

and then the ID 6.5" Mids:

582972ae.jpg

I have since sold those, and picked up a pair of these JBL P660c 6.5" Components. Now i know these fit because i had a single mid laying around from the same set (long story) so i was able to test fit that exact mid on spot, and sure enough they fit, so i will be making seperate rings for those soon 8)

so i assume ur subs plan is going to change?


he wouldnt be the first to say they did a 167 with a system like that (one that clearly DOESNT), but i have to say, he didnt beat me anywhere, ive never competed against the guy. If he thinks his does a 167, mine would probably put him in a coma. :hairtrick:

Thanks man :good:

Build may start slow since im a full time college student, and i work.. however i will work mostly on this next week on my spring break from college and hopefully have the majority of the work done (since there is ALWAYS something to upgrade, and issues are always ran into)

really, i just need a box design at this point, past 2 weeks i've been messaging people, i had 1 box design done but that was for a different pair of woofers, last few people i've message have yet to get back to me

so if anyone could hook me up with a design that'd be cool and much appreciated, all i need at this point (well besides the wood) which i am hoping to have my design and wood by the beginning of this week.

yezzir, it IS quite possible, closer to summer time though, 6x sa12s, 2x saz3500ds would be the plan

so i assume ur subs plan is going to change?

actually my mind was set on z12v2s at first, a pair of them but course something comes up and cash is sort so i said i would save some cash now and just get some sa12s and buy what i want in the summer time when i have more money, i was considering buying 2 z12s, or 4 more sa12s which would make 6

either way i go, another saz3500d is in the works :)

but that is all down the road a few months
