As you can see, dirt, dust and sand can get inside the gap of the T5...which isn't a problem in a car. But in the dunes, it might be. I am MORE worried about sand then water LOL . Anyway, the T3 has a closed cone so it should do a lot better in this environment. Sure wish i could keep running the T5's though!

As you can plainly see, the pods are NOT on the ground but rather up in the air a few inches. You can actually put your foot right under them and brace yourself pretty nicely if you need to. The pods are super solid and bolted in strong...and with the bedliner they are just fine :)

Ok here is the fun part. As you might know, if you paid attention :D, i tossed in my old Rockford Fosgate I-Beam Transducers. They are mounted to the back of the driver and passenger seats. Even with NO woofer at all, these things make my door speakers feel like they are pounding! Anyway, they feel good so i am leaving them in to HELP with the subwoofer response when the box is done. I know it is hard to get good bass in a wide open area so this will help. It really does make the system sound like it has a woofer even before the woofer! These aren't "bass shakers" they are on a totally different level (the I-beams). Anyway, i decided i did NOT want the I-beams to share an amp with the woofers since they will probably chew up the entire 500w sub amp all by themselves...so what should i do? Yup, grabbed another T500.1, moved the 3sixty.3 up, and dropped it in.

IMG_1894_zps0bfa7a01.jpg

Well, channels 5 and 6 on the 3sixty.3 were wide open, nothing on them....now those channels are dedicated to my I-beams. Full control over everything! Rockford style! :)

drilled a hole in the seat bar and ran the wire down through it down to the bottom and put some removable connectors on both sides. This way i can still take the seats out and not have to cut the wire every time :D I would have done a molex plug but it's only 2 speaker wires on each side. Not enough to warrant a 9 pin molex :D

BONUS PICS - i tossed the new SMD v2 on the back just to see what it would look like back there. The RZR is getting 2 Rockford Fosgate P2 10's so don't get all excited, i am NOT putting this in there. This is just for fun :D

this video is 5 years old...i have had one of the I-beams for the entire time and wasn't sure what to do with it...because i wanted at least 2 of them. Well about 6 months ago i scored a 2nd one some how (they are discontinued). Now that i got the RZR a light bulb went off in my head and i was like "cheeea!". :D See i know it's going to be hard to get GOOD bass into the cabin being so wide open, so these are not only fun but will be functional too :D

check out this old teeth rattling video from back in the day (to understand the ibeams a little better)

Todays updates:

I am waiting on my "Side Slider" kit to come from Soundman and this is where i plan on putting my Ipad Mini. Rode hard all weekend and it kicks ass right here! Here is some pics from the ride and then some pics of the box i started.

No lie, we are smasing through the woods and boom, we pop out into a clearing. The worlds sickest personal horseshoe pit. Beat, Bear, whatever else you want - it's there. This place rules.

What it's like to be on the Hill. It's way legit. There's a ride or a seat for everyone when we smash out to the hills.

Fast forward to Tuesday:

Ok here we go with the box. The plan is a 3 chamber, 6th order bandpass. 3, 3" Ports in the center chamber (subject to change after i determine exact final box volume) and a single 4" port in each of the side chambers. It has a nice response curve, i hope it sounds as good as it looks on paper. Ill share more details on the box once i know it sounds right. I plan on porting UNDER the railing and right behind each seat on the 4" ports and in between the seats on the 3" ports. Im doing all i can to get bass in an open air environment while protecting the subs (with the BP design). I need every single square inch of volume i can get so i am not using aeroports. I am using ABS tubes with a nice clean round over on the outside.

**NOTE: Due to the crazy shapes this bed is made of, some of my work looks rough. I had to make some changes along the way and a LOT of this is freestyle off the top of my head (with the exception of box volume). I am planning on making the top part a usable bed to hold items. I plan on glassing it to where it comes down the sides at an angle and looks natural. I will still be able to use my tie downs too! Also, this box will be EASILY removable for access to the hatch below (for engine work).

When it's done it will be a combo of bed liner for durability and whatever else i come up with to make it look good.

Now for the pics.

IMG_2044_zps694d2476.jpg

I ended up cutting these a lot shorter then this.

So i worked all day and then my doors showed up. HMMMMM, go home or put them on? Yup, i couldn't help myself. I got PRP Doors, they are amazingly sick!!! The latches are incredible...smooth as butter. Took me 2 hours 15 min to put on. 2 Hours to do the driver side, 15 minutes to do the passenger side. No thanks to the worlds shittiest instructions. LOL. But the quality of this product is great so i quickly got over it!

As if building a 3 chamber 6th order bandpass in a crazy shaped box isn't a pain in the ass enough, you have to remember, being a BP box you have to make an access panel. So now i have to make part of this removable....uhhhgggg. Maybe ill put a plexi window here. Time to frame it out.

Also, the side walls of the bed will be taped over and then glassed in so i can take advantage of every little bit of air space i can. You will see. Tomorrow is glass day!

IMG_2092_zpsbb8fd9f8.jpg

Even though it is just a 10 degree difference, it's still so much nicer if you actually make the cut.

IMG_2093_zps2421c07a.jpg

IMG_2095_zps76968793.jpg

IMG_2096_zpsee8a3014.jpg

IMG_2097_zps0807f4d3.jpg

IMG_2099_zps790317f6.jpg

IMG_2103_zpsc4796673.jpg

Again, the back sides of each of the side chambers (where you see the ABS plastic) this will be taped off and then glassed in. That's tomorrow.

IMG_2104_zps0f445872.jpg

Those ports arent going in THAT exact spot...i know it's too high. I was just doodling and checking for space when i drew those on. They will be dropped about 3-4" down from what you see here.

IMG_2106_zps6da2a2f0.jpg

IMG_2108_zps8e189949.jpg

IMG_2109_zps6c0a453e.jpg

IMG_2111_zps994bdc82.jpg

I know it's UGLY but let me get my shit handled, it will look good once i get to the "make it look good" stage. Most of this is freestyle so it's just me experimenting and doing what i can to make it happen.

IMG_2113_zps14d9728e.jpg

IMG_2114_zps4e4fd517.jpg

IMG_2116_zpsffa636ff.jpg

IMG_2119_zps56b8368d.jpg

The ports should be nice and loud coming up under this bar. I am going to seal it off too it so hopefully it will help channel that bass into the vehicle some.

Since the box volume changed a little bit and i didn't have the room i thought i would for the 4" ports, i ended up using 3" ports.

IMG_2125_zps1cb30a35.jpg

IMG_2129_zps92101c52.jpg

IMG_2133_zps1780c125.jpg

There will now be 2 3" ports in the center chamber. I wanted to do 3, 3" ports but the volume changed a little and the numbers just didn't look right to me. I guess ill find out! It's just 2 P2 10's they shouldn't have any port noise but i will also do a FAT round over on them once i am ready to do so.

IMG_2134_zps593d7c9f.jpg

Time to start thinking about fiberglassing. Blue tape, spray glue, and some plastic....and i am ready to glass.

IMG_2135_zps1d7a34ce.jpg

Cutting a few port holes. Like i said above, once i am at that point, i will throw a nice round-over on these. I went with traditional tube ports because i need every bit of space i can get in this box. No real room to do Aero-ports. Plus, their location and where they are aiming played a big role in my choice to use them. Tubes work great so no problem!

IMG_2138_zps26fe1fd4.jpg

IMG_2139_zps90b96fde.jpg

IMG_2140_zpsa1b6b60c.jpg

Looking from this angle it starts to become apparent that this is a complicated box to build. Being a 6th order bandpass is already a pain in the ass but this crazy shaped bed is really challenging. I decided to use the bed wall as the actual enclosure wall. No sense in using a bunch of wood scraps...plus, as i said, i need all the space i can get.

SMD Sunflash FTW.. Take my sweet time, no rush at all. When i am ready, back it out to the sun and it locks up in about a minute or so...usually well under a minute. In case you are wondering, this is the color of it. No catalyst. No mixing. Right out of the container into your cup onto your project. Easy.

here is the port location. As stated 3 times, these will be rounded over soon.

IMG_2166_zps0079598a.jpg

Time to drop the lid on. It is also going to serve as the new "bed". I plan on glassing the top really strong so it can take abuse..then bedline the entire thing.

This will be weather sealed up against the bar and fastened down (somehow). This way the ports don't collect water if it does rain or if i hose it out. The box will be waterproofed and THEN bedlined for even more waterproofing.
