Option 1 - Rockford t2500bdcp at 2 ohm.

Option 2 - buy the right subs

Only option. Don't run amps at .5 ohm

Why not get 2 1000 watt amps and strap them at 2 ohms?

Especially with 4 gauge... If you buy an amp that will actually do 2k at 2 ohms it will def. need 0 gauge

2 AQ 750s could do this for $400 I think. Forget what they cost.

you serioisly dont need to use 4awg for speaker wire... seriously, 8awg is plenty enough overkill.

Did you say your using 4 gauge wire on your subs or to the amp? If its your subs thats way overkill. Plus Im sure you had to cut the strands just to get it to fit and the size it is at the connection point now on the sub is probably more like 10 gauge if that. Just use some 10gauge wire to the subs and as for the amp,I would probably use the RF t2500bdcp since it will give you the 2000 you need at 2 ohms without putting a strain on your electrical. Thats your best option in my opinio

      Decided to start a thread about my quest for dbzzzz in my daily driver. I told myself I would not be doing anything big with this car but I am learning not to trust myself with that kind of promise lol!
      Here is the car's actual build log: http://www.stevemeadedesigns.com/board/topic/205951-sotm-build-2000-honda-civic-ex-140db-daily-build/?p=3124379
      So I had a little setup in the car that only did 140.8db at about 34hz dB Drag style. Grabbed some equipment from my Jeep (currently being rebuilt) and got some subs to play with from Jeff Vue of JVF Customz.
      So here is what I'm working with as of December 2016:
      Car - 2000 Honda Civic Ex 5 Speed w/ sunroof, ac, bla bla bla.
      Electrical - Stock 70a Alternator, $60 G51R stock under hood battery, Big 3 done with SHCA 4 gauge cca, 4 gauge Xs cca to the rear, G34 battery in the rear. So basically shit for electrical but its kool...but I did get some supercaps! BIGGG help with those.
      Subs - 2 JVF Customz 3.3 12's, 3" 8 layer coil D1.4, 10" spider???, fat motor (same as my 18's in the Jeep) on 12 spoke.
      Box - 3.4 cube, subs forward, port forward, 8" aero.
      Power - 1 DC Audio 3.5k
      DAT AZZ!!

      3.5k with caps in spare tire location. Caps did not get used until later. Decided this was a bad location for the amp so it's going to move asap.

      Makeshift setup. Box hardly fits and I don't like the subs up at the deck lid. This box is named the "bitch box" mostly because its been in about every "loud" street stock car in NorCal since like 2011. I won West Coast championships with it in 2015.
      So now lets get on with testing! I'll just post as I go with it!

      I currently have a sundown scv-4000d on two dc xl 15's my question is can the dc's handle another scv-4000 or should I replace the one I alreddy have with a scv-6000
    • By Nkhegler316
      Looking for anyone that can provide dimensions and a cut sheet list for a single sundown audio zv4 15. Wanting around a 7 cubic foot box, The box will be in a 1995 Yukon so I have a good bit of space to work with as far as measurements go, don't have exact measurements off the top of my head. Any help would be nice.

      Ok so i need advice from the pro's for my build! I currently have 2 12's in a 6 Cube ported box, now in order to make more room for my aux batteries and 4 channel amp i will be adding i was wondering if this would be the one exception to front firing a subwoofer box. I was going to build a platform to set the box on which would leave no gap between the roof and the box, I was also going to seal the 2 inchs on each side off as well. So in this repect i could put my batteries and four channel underneath the sub box by letting the platfoor have a higher back the subs would be above the rear seats pointing forward would this result in a good positioning of the subs i currently have the subs facing up[ and ports up i would of liked to have subs up ports back but i would of been choking them off if i would of done so. Its ok if its a fucked idea i can handle it.
