Project Flexington: 157.6db @ 37hz Parallel 6th order walk through, DC Neo Elite 18s, 4 DC 5.0ks, JY Lithium, 12 banks of XS CapsBy the_garynator
So figure it is time to start a build log for my 6th order wall. Been working on it for a few weeks now. I'll start by posting the equipment I'm using for the build.
2 nsb170fts and 2 stinger group 31s:
3 banks of super caps:
2 singer 320amp alternators (these came with the truck, I'm currently in the process of redoing the bracket to strengthen it and add a tensioner but I'll elaborate later):
4+ spools of skyhigh 1/0, knukonceptz 4/0 ofc for alternators (will post pictures later)
Terminals, marine grade ring terminals lugs, properly crimped with double wall adhesive lined heat shrink:
Subs are 2 sundown x15s rev 1(will be rebuilding for level 6 18s at a later date):
Sub Amp, kicker warhorse:
Head unit and tweeters, Sony dsx-s210x and 4x Earthquake Screamers, 1.5" 150wrms per pair silk Dome tweeters with replaceable voice coils:
Mid bass, 4x dayton audio 10" pa woofers, 300rms each:
Mids are tbd, probably 2 8" midrange speakers.
Lots of Baltic birch:
If you enjoy, please comment!
Putting a system in my mustang and don't wanna go crazy I just wanna have some decent sound to listen to over the exhaust.
Currently have a PPI PC250 that I had planned to run my subwoofer with and then purchase a cheap 4-channel for the mids and highs ($150 or less budget)
But, searching on craigslist and I come across a guy selling a kicker CX600.5 for $100. Seems like it'll do everything I need, I don't need a butt load of power.
On the other hand I've read that this is Kicker's entry line of amps and I don't know how I feel about that.
The 4 channel that I wanted to add is a Precision Power i1000.4 <-Links to sonicelectronix page
Ultimately I'd like to see what you guys think if I should grab that 5-channel for $100 or just get the 4-channel and run two amps?
What's going on, all?
A month or so ago, I finished up one of my more fun projects for a friend/customer. Here's a build component list:
1998 Ford Expedition
Mechman 270a 12v alt
2 JS 370a 16v alts
2 K2 16v 80ah banks
8 runs Sky High 1/0 OFC (4 pos, 4 neg)
3 DC Audio 5.0 amplifiers
6 Skar Audio EVL 15s
DB Drive mids/tweets
C-pillar wall built by yours truly
This thing was an absolute blast to put together. It ended up putting up nice numbers for a c-pillar, especially with budget subs. The wall was built for 6 Level 6 15s, and there will eventually be 6 5.0s.
Pictures will be uploaded as soon as they finish uploading to photobucket! There are many, many pictures, as well as a few vids. Stay tuned!
Sealing a wall. Got 2 DC Level 6 in my Subaru and glassed out most every side. Looks sealed but on music you can feel air behind the side. Any good way or method to find the spots that need attention? Top of port glassed now too. FYI, My first wall and I am NOT a professional installer.
Things tried. Fiberglass sides and gaps. Used window seal adheisive where the glassed sided meet the b Pillar. Glassed to floor and above port
Im really curious if you guys were going to build a van with a big setup (160+) for demos, to be musical around town etc. The van has to look good and still be very very driveable.
What type of van would you use and why?
Also would like to know what your favourite vans are that are currently competing or have in the past? Favourite by looks, favourite by their setup, or favourite because a mixture of both.
The more pics the merrier....
Thanks for your time
