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.

Electrical:

Batteries:

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):

20160910_092544_zpsbkpoyvku.jpg.fab06ea67c47df08829a2eaa4933b7e8.jpg

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):

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:

20160816_181437_zps2deprp6a.jpg.eed12aae65df8e9e41948b07c6f7bf11.jpg

Mids are tbd, probably 2 8" midrange speakers.

Lots of Baltic birch:

Started by ripping out the blowthrough shell that came with the truck, link in my signature to a series tuned 6th I built in it previous to this if you want to see it.

Started by building the loading wall / port for the small high tuned front chamber. I ended up shrinking this due to space issues, 10s will be sealed in 1.9ft3 per pair:

20160915_214155_zps3iilubrk.jpg

Test fitting, made some other changes after this:

20160915_215553_zpslmppm4do.jpg

Picked up some metal for internal bracing and some fasteners, got more fasteners not pictured including lag bolts:

Did a mockup of the new alternator setup, I ended up deciding to use a different tensioner but I'll post about that later:

Shot a light coat of paint over the bed, Redid the bottom layer, and laid some expanding foam:

Got the box partially assembled:

20160923_025740_zpsnpno8zwf.jpg

I'll be ripping out the port and replacing it with a single sheet and longer divider tomorrow

My new seats came in, test fitted the driver seat:

20160924_164311_zpstrhyqqqj.jpg

Started making wood floor, still not committed to this route for reinforcing the cabin and will probably pull it out and use metal to reinforce the floor boards and fire wall but we'll see:

20160924_190818_zpso2exluxr.jpg

Started building and fitting the bracing for the front chamber, I will be tacking these together, removing and welding them solid:

And that's where I'm at currently. Feel free to comment if you like what you see, gives me motivation to keep the updates coming lol

I really don't know but he said something about considering doing a build in the Ford Ranger he recently got back that was his first vehicle he had gotten from his grandfather back in the day. Also mentioned a crx, which he bought after but I saw that up for sale the other day.

      The purpose of this thread is to evaluate and discuss the internal resistance of various batteries and (possibly?) test methods.
      I’ll start this off by using the DC Load method to test some XS AGM, some K2 73Ah cells, and some K2/JYP 80Ah cells.  The DC load method was used because that’s all the equipment that I had available or was able to purchase quickly and on the cheap.  Here’s a link for more information on Load Test Methods.
      http://batteryuniversity.com/learn/article/how_to_measure_internal_resistance
      Calculation used was Rint = ((Vrest/Vload) -1) x Rload)
      Where
      Rint = internal resistance
      Vrest = Voltage at rest
      Vload = Voltage once load is applied
      Rload = resistance of the load resistor
      Now onto some pictures of the setup.  If there is something amiss please chime in so we can figure it out.
      1ohm load resistors (although they test out at 0.9ohm)

      I connected them in series on one end, and I can change the resistance by simply connecting my jumper wire differently. I have the opportunity to connect at 0.45ohm, 0.9ohm, and 1.8ohm.  Here's proof of half(ish) ohm, although I didnt use this low of a resistance for data collection:

      So this connection would be 1.8ohm

      This connection would be 0.9ohm

      Here's the 73Ah K2 cells (not JY collaboration batteries)

      The day before testing, I topped off all the batteries, including the JYP's in the back and the AGMs to the right. 

      24 hours later, I actually took measurements.

      Data for the lithiums:

      Data for the D3400R AGM

      Looking forward to some comments, suggestions, etc.  Thanks for looking!

      Its time to refresh this build log!  Been a busy summer with Slam, Heatwave, Photobucket took a sh*t, sold my other car, etc etc.
      Here's some pics from the last build log, since the PB pics arent visible anymore:


      Cant fit more tire in this car.  Bass squat.

      But that flush tho

      Roll bar

      The reason for making this new thread.
       
      Old thread  https://www.stevemeadedesigns.com/board/topic/205731-my-first-audio-build/
       
       
      The car

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      Still a lot more to deaden!
      Btw i've used Silent Coat and STP ak04 premium
       
       
       
      So the new plan(setup) will be as following:
       
      HU: ?? don't know yet
      Subs: 2 Phoenix Gold Elite.12D4
      Subs Amp: Rockford Fosgate Power T2500.1
      Mids and Highs: Phoenix Gold Elite.65CS Components
      Mids and Highs Amp: Rockford Fosgate Power T400.2
      Electrical:
      Ground Zero GZBP 12.3500X battery under the hood
      XS Power XE 12-110 battery in the back
      180 Amp Alternator
      OFC 0 awg power/ground/big 3
      OFC 4 awg power/ground
      OFC 8 awg subwoofer wire
      OFC 10 awg speaker wire
      Rockford Fosgate Fuses
      Rockford Fosgate Fuseholders 6x
      Rockford Fosgate RCA’s 10feet 2x
      Rockford Fosgate PEQ remote controller
      Some dual inputs
      Stinger voltmeter
       
       
      Some parts

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
       
      I'm now waiting on the 0awg and 10awg OFC wire to come thru the mail, then its all complete..
       
      Box is finished just need to wrap it.
      Thanks to JOE X for the box design!!
      It's for 2 zv4 12's but i'm hoping it will work fine with the Elite.12's
       
       
      You'll be hearing from me soon, as soon as ive done some more work

      I've seen quite a few write-ups on 4th order ratios and what not, but am struggling to find anything on 6th orders. what would a 1:1 compared to a 2:1, 3:1, etc. ratio 6th order sound like? Thanks!
