SoundQubed/Fi Blazer - 4 Fi Team 18’s on 16k (rebuild time!)


Recommended Posts

Out of curiosity where did you ground the battery at and where did you connect to engine block at? I'm doing the big 3 on my blazer this week and was looking around under there but didn't see a good place to ground batt within 3 ft of post, thinkin I may have to have a longer negative run and tap a hole in the frame, looks like that's what you did?

Thanks man! I have one ground ran from batt negative straight down to the frame. I drilled a hole, and then tapped threads in it so I could bolt the lug right to it. I also believe that I have one from batt negative to a mounting bracket right next to the alt. That acts as the engine block ground.

Here's a pic of where it's grounded to the frame. It's right in the middle of the passenger wheel well.

Thinking I'm going to be going a different direction. Blew one of my sp4's because all of the glue joints on the former cracked and a lead came out. FI said its because of over excursion, but I didn't even play them that hard at all. So if that's what it takes to blow them, then I might reconsider my choice in subs. Not bashing them in any way, just going a different direction. I'm thinking 2 hdc4 or hdc3 18's. But time will tell

On a good note tho, got my second skin damplifier in! Gonna be deadening my doors, and maybe my roof this weekend. Will post pics of the progress.

Ryder approves second skin. Lol

Damn, up until a couple days ago I had always heard fi stuck behind their product, even in sticky situations. This is now the second time this week I've heard of fi not taking action on a warranty because of some stupid "user error". Huh.

It wasn't a warranty issue. And Kyle is awesome for tryin to help me out. I still might be going with the sp4's depending on a couple things.

Didn't get as much done today as I would have liked, but got drivers door deadened, and the back hatch.

Used 2 sheets on the door. You can't see but there's the entire inside of the door deadened, as well as the outside panel.

Quite a few changes since my last update.

Sold 2 of my sp4's for cash and an FI N2 18 in a box. Was just going to flip the n2 quick but buyer backed out so I said fuck it and put it in my blazer. Looks pretty nice and clean. I'll get a pic of it soon. I only have it on about 1500 watts, but metered a 144 on the dash. It's pretty musical, but i have been wanting to go back to some hdc3's.

Well, found a good deal on a new hdc4 18, so I bought it :) will be here tomorrow. Can't wait to break that in and see what I can get with that.

Got the new HDC4 18 installed. Wired at 2 ohm until it is broken in, then will be dropping down to half ohm.

Deadened the entire roof, got both front doors deadened, and the back area deadened. just have the floor to do and there will be 100% coverage of second skin damplifier!
