Was pretty busy today but managed to get some work done. Removed the 2 piece port and the port divider that was too short:20160926_200409_zpsxiaj404z.jpg

Fitted the new Port piece and test fitted the dual layer baffle:

Got the holes drilled for the rest of the bracing for the front chamber and the braces that will run along the bottom of the port:

That's it for tonight but hoping to bust out a bunch more tomorrow night.

Love the drill press on the tailgate, Doubles as a workbench ftw! lol

Hahahahahaha, it's perfect height for a lawn chair too! I had to get creative, work bench area is almost non existent in my garage and I won't do anything about it because everything is at my shop. Normally I would do a build like this there but it's all torn apart because I am currently looking for a bigger one. Plus it's kinda nice having a project I can work on at home vs driving 15min every time.

Man... Im in for this one. I just picked up a 96 Hardbody. I would like to see your alt set up installed. No one makes a replacement HO alt so I have to make a bracket. Im planing on a small blow through with 2 12's nothing this big. LOL

Unfortunately I'm not running the stock KA24. I have a small block chevy 350 swap.

Although the 96 hardbody has a single cam ka24, which should have the same mounting points as the ka24e in the 90-91 240sx which would mean that I actually have a bracket for a second alternator that I made a few years back for my old 240 if you're not worried about a/c. I'm no longer using it so I'd consider selling it if you're interested assuming that it will work. It's made to use a 125 amp nissan quest alternator

Also, check out the blowthrough link in my sig, that was a blowthrough I did in this truck with 2 12s

Awww damn.. I need ac down here in the desert is F**king HOT during the summers LOL. I guess ill have to do some building or maybe a swap in the future. But keep the pics coming. Im going to be stealing ideas from you lol. Like what you have for seats. Ill get rid of the bench seat soon.

Damn, that's unfortunate lol. Yeah, getting rid of the bench is huge, talking about couple of db with it folded forward vs back with my blow through. I'm making custom brackets this week to mount the seats, if theyou end up being bolt on it can probably make a second set pretty easily

just curious, any relationship you use on port area on the rear chamber vs port area on the front chamber? i´ve found that double port area on front works better for me, for 2 12s i had a 3 4" aeros on rear chamber and a 10" aero on front chamber, worked awesome for sure

      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

      So...
       
      The plans have changed a little bit, no wall but two 12's now
      The reason for making this new thread.
       
      Old thread  https://www.stevemeadedesigns.com/board/topic/205731-my-first-audio-build/

      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

      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!
