Starting him off early with DC

Recommended Posts

This is amazing, its kinda sad that your kid has a better system than I do right now....

will it depress you even more saying i did a quick test on it, and it did a 161 at 38 hertz on a termlab with 800 watts. But that is the mic right outside the port. The box is way to big at 1.3 cubic feet. so i am going to drop it down to about .75 so i can get the frequency up to mid 50's and hopefully produce a better number. In Midwest SPL the meter is put 12" out of the port so i still have a lot of testing to do and get it dialed in

Kids these days want iPhones and Xbox ones, I think that this power wheel blows both of those out if the water. This is awesome man and can't wait to see the results of the meter.

thanks for the props. it has definally been a fun build. and little man loves to drive this all over the place. now this one is built just for MidwestSPL since the meter is 3" above the window/dash line.

So he is able to be competitive in USACi and MECA, i am building a 2nd powerwheel using a single 12" sub. In both of these organizations the meter is put in the kick panel. So this is going to be a forth order build. with a plexi glass access cover for the sub

Approximate box design


And what it will be going into

wife just popped out kid number 2 about 30 days ago. so this will be his in a few years to run.

As far as equipment i am running (2) DC lvl 3 12" subs and an American Bass ph4000 in my Blazer. so i will just remove one sub and amp for now to run in the firetruck at shows. Until it comes time to upgrade my blazer. Then the equipment will stay in there.

I am debating about doing this on the side. so if anyone needs something build for their kids or has questions just shoot me an email. Surprisingly these powerwheels are very easy to fix up and repair. I buy the ones off craigslist that have small damage and repair them.
