Installed a couple weeks ago my cpillar slide in wall For 6 ab xfl 1222s on 2 dc 5ks.
3 top on 1 dc5k @1.3 ohms and 3 bottom on another dc5k @ 1.3 ohms.
Have blown the bottom middle woofer now twice.
First time thing I went to hard on it being that it took months to finish and killed the coil.
2nd one was rushing to get it playing for slammology. Broke it in for 3 hours @ 40 and 30 hz on a dc5k @ 4ohns 900 something watts
Went to install it the next day screwed up poked surround like a idiot. Fixed it with shoe goo
Played fine all weekend till my 4th demo at slammology then that infernal slinky sub sound.
What am I doing wrong?
1. this is my first wall
2. First time running 6 subs
3. First time running this kind of power and running 2 dc5k to 1 enclosure
4. Set amps with dd-1 to older 5k cause seemed to be lower of the 2 amps. Set with -5 db track
5. Gain matched both amps to the older 5k with cc-1
6.slide in wall is top L port
7. Almost seems like bottom 3 subs move more then top ones ( but not 100 percent on this )
5 broken in subs and one new one as soon as I buy another one from ab.
Please help I am pulling my hair out trying to figure this out and can't afford to keep replacing subs.
Now have 5 good and 3 bad subs.

So figure it is time to start a build log for my 6th order wall. Been working on it for a few weeks now. I'll start by posting the equipment I'm using for the build.
2 nsb170fts and 2 stinger group 31s:
3 banks of super caps:
2 singer 320amp alternators (these came with the truck, I'm currently in the process of redoing the bracket to strengthen it and add a tensioner but I'll elaborate later):
4+ spools of skyhigh 1/0, knukonceptz 4/0 ofc for alternators (will post pictures later)
Terminals, marine grade ring terminals lugs, properly crimped with double wall adhesive lined heat shrink:
Subs are 2 sundown x15s rev 1(will be rebuilding for level 6 18s at a later date):
Sub Amp, kicker warhorse:
Head unit and tweeters, Sony dsx-s210x and 4x Earthquake Screamers, 1.5" 150wrms per pair silk Dome tweeters with replaceable voice coils:
Mid bass, 4x dayton audio 10" pa woofers, 300rms each:
Mids are tbd, probably 2 8" midrange speakers.
Lots of Baltic birch:
If you enjoy, please comment!
This is a slow build log because I need to get the truck running again first.

The Mess as it sits today
And here is the box plan for after the truck runs again
So I happened upon this clean blue beauty and for a price of almost half of all the others of similar year and mileage, I snatched it up.
My build plans with it are to move my current system from the explorer into this since i will no longer own the explorer in a short time. The equipment being:
HU- Pioneer DEH-80PRS
Subs- Two SoundQubed HDS312D2's
Amps- SoundQubed Q1-3500.1; AudioQue 90.4
Mids & Highs- CDT CL61A
Wires- All Sky High 1/0, RCA's, 12ga speaker wire
Power- Haven't decided on an alt yet, gotta contact singer, see what he's got. I don't think I'll go with anything over 300A on the alt. I'll have a D3400 under the hood, and I've got a D4700 i had bought for a cruze that I'll keep by the amps.
Hopefully I can get started on transferring it all this weekend. I've got duty saturday so i'll have all day sunday to knock it out. The only things that need bought are the D3400 and the alt. I'll post pictures as i go through the install.
edit: fixed the pictures
Alright so finally got around to "finishing" a build in one of my vehicles haha. I say "finishing" because it's as close to done without having the new alternator or battery racks built but it's sooo close lol. "Fighter Jet" reasoning will be shown through pictures, hopefully you get the meaning haha. Here are the stats:
2000 Ford Explorer Limited 5.0 AWD
Custom switch/gauge panel
SHCA RCAs, fuse holders, ring terminals, heat shrink
SHCA Green and Black 1/0
DC AUDIO 5K DC AUDIO 10k
4- Soundqubed HDC3 10s 4 - 18" DC Audio Lvl 6 18s, full Carbon fiber option
Anyone want to see some pictures?
