I've been helping a buddy install a system in his 2016 Jeep Wrangler JK. I finally have enough pics to start a build log, so I'll be loading all of them up over the next couple weeks.
The requirements were simple: he wanted (4) 8's or nothing at all. Silly? Maybe; but we met the requirements and hope to be banging before the end of the year
The stock sub (an 8x10) has 4 voice coils
Ran some numbers in TermLab at first, but then switched the design over to WinISD. Came up with this size enclosure:
That router feels good man
Went with PSI-8's with High Performance suspension for 600Wrms per sub
We were jammin some of that good techno
The original plan was to have a few tube ports, but I had a hunch that they were too small. Thats about the time that Triticum came out with his port velocity calculator, and I realized the port velocities with these small ports would give me the tuning we were wanting, but also gave us almost 100 m/s port velocity (yikes!)
Then the design changed to have a properly sized port attached to the back panel, bringing the velocities down to around 25-30 m/s
I didnt really trust my kerf skills yet
More pics coming tomorrow. Thanks for looking!
Here we go with another build. This one won't be as slow as the Chevy TB and I'm excited for that. This vehicle is my work car so I work on it profusely week after week. I am hoping to get this one done by end month so until then here are my plans. If what you see sounds familiar it probably is, but I won't tell...🤔 Thanks everyone prematurely for the comments and hope to have some good reviews from this build.
Rockford Fosgate T2500bdcp
Rockford Fosgate T-400/4
Audio Control Matrix
Rockford Fosgate T152-s 5.25" mids
Rockford Fosgate T1D410's
Mechman OFC 1/0
I'm wanting to start some kind of 2.1 home audio build. Nothing 7.1 ultra high tech.
Just want some good ass mids and highs and a decent sub that does lows.
Now I'm wondering, what kind of sub would be nice? I was thinking 250 watts to 500 watts of RMS should be enough to do well right?
Anyways, that brings me to the next question. Are there any affordable mono's to power a suggested woofer?
Anf what mids and highs would be nice, would I need a calculated enclosure for mids and highs?
I'm new to home audio, would love some help.
Buddy's new (new to us) amp. Got it used through Cody at Droppin Hz for a good price.
On to the pics:
Very interesting heat sink
Amp was built one year ago and warranty is non-transferrable, so off comes the warranty stickers
Used alcohol to remove the warranty stickers
Cant wait to get this badboy playing down at half ohm

*************[Note: Since photobucket decided to nerf everyone's accounts, a lot of the pictures in this thread are gone. I intend to fix all of the posts but it will take quite a while. Photos start on page 29 currently. In the meantime all of the photos are available on Facebook by searching #projectflexington and many are on Instagram under the same hashtag. Thanks for looking and please don't be afraid to comment! ]*************
