Sundown Audio

Recommended Posts

Can one of you find the link to the thread? I'm looking for Jacob's post but I cannot seem to find it

use this as a Guide for these subs..

10s : 1.25 - 2 cubes ported
12s : 2 - 3 cubes ported
15s : 3 - 4.5 cubes ported
18s : 4 - 6 cubes ported

At higher power err towards smaller; around rated power err towards bigger.

this is so wrong lol

look at Fi Q an 18 needs 6 - 8 cubs ported and not the 4 -6 you stated.. every sub is different and you should go with manufacturer recommendation

And another subwoofer guru!!!!

No... Use manufacture's specifications as a guide.

Those recommendations are straight from Jacob's mouth which if you do not know that is the owner of Sundown...so yes that is the manufacures specifications...now please shut up....

N9neMillahhh - 4 cubes will be perfect for the two 10's on a 3500Dv2 at 1 ohm; don't listen to Krakin because he obviously has no idea what he is talking about....

thank you.. someone here as been reading the forums..

beaker- I know this sounds like a lot of anime bullshit, but it is true.

Okay I'll fix my post for accuracy...

Orignal: I would recommend doing the math on what the amp will be drawing at it's Ohm load. Then seeing how much much current is possible to transfer through CCA or OFC, cause I don't remember them right now, to see what runs you need to do.

And MOST importantly get a reliable volt meter. I suggest buying a SMD VM-1 especially with the discounts going on for it right now. SMD coupon i think is $10 off, and sending in you old - broken or working - volt meter gets you $25 off each one sent in.

Fixed since I'm an idiot:

Fuck math throw something with metal the electricity is smart it'll get there. Just through some of Kicker's Silver clad OFC IT'S GOT SILVER!!!

Fuck meters just use your dash gauge that shits accurate as hell!

Krakin, are you some sort of mad scientist?

I would have replied earlier, but I was measuring the output of my amp with a yardstick . . .

What you hear is not the air pressure variation in itself

but what has drawn your attention

in the two streams of superimposed air pressure variations at your eardrums

An acoustic event has dimensions of Time, Tone, Loudness and Space

Everyone learns to render the 3-dimensional localization of sound based on the individual shape of their ears,

thus no formula can achieve a definite effect for every listener.

Obviously I wasn't on top of the right thread.... but I'd honestly not recommend all this for OP .... inexperience can cause a lot of mayhem in itself.... I'd say go for mid - lower side to be on the side of safety with all that equipment.... That's just my opinion

those specs are not posted anywhere

edit:on sundown website or SSA where they sell them.

okay. i read it and the specs are of him going on to test them. we need to find where the final specs will be

We'll be doing some real-world testing to dial it in further, of course, but this is what I'd shoot for :

10s : 1.25 - 2 cubes ported

12s : 2 - 3 cubes ported

15s : 3 - 4.5 cubes ported

18s : 4 - 6 cubes ported

lmfao.... well as I read it ... seems he is referring to the z.4 in the specs.... but that's the interpretation since he is answering questions about 2 different woofers in that post
