*************[Note: Since photobucket decided to nerf everyone's accounts, a lot of the pictures in this thread are gone. I intend to fix all of the posts but it will take quite a while.  Photos start on page 29 currently. In the meantime all of the photos are available on Facebook by searching #projectflexington and many are on Instagram under the same hashtag. Thanks for looking and please don't be afraid to comment! ]*************

 

 

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:

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:

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:

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:

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

Last time I saw his youtube videos he had just got it road worthy.

What made him decide to sell?

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.

He's always had sweet builds, that's for sure!

      I've been helping a buddy install a system in his 2016 Jeep Wrangler JK.  I finally have enough pics to start a build log, so I'll be loading all of them up over the next couple weeks.
      The requirements were simple: he wanted (4) 8's or nothing at all.  Silly?  Maybe; but we met the requirements and hope to be banging before the end of the year
      The stock sub (an 8x10) has 4 voice coils


      Ran some numbers in TermLab at first, but then switched the design over to WinISD.  Came up with this size enclosure:



      That router feels good man



      Went with PSI-8's with High Performance suspension for 600Wrms per sub

      We were jammin some of that good techno

      The original plan was to have a few tube ports, but I had a hunch that they were too small.  Thats about the time that Triticum came out with his port velocity calculator, and I realized the port velocities with these small ports would give me the tuning we were wanting, but also gave us almost 100 m/s port velocity (yikes!)

      Then the design changed to have a properly sized port attached to the back panel, bringing the velocities down to around 25-30 m/s

      I didnt really trust my kerf skills yet

      More pics coming tomorrow.  Thanks for looking!

      Buddy's new (new to us) amp.  Got it used through Cody at Droppin Hz for a good price.
      Brands inside: 
      CapXon
      Samwha
      Samyoung
      On to the pics:
      Very interesting heat sink




      Amp was built one year ago and warranty is non-transferrable, so off comes the warranty stickers

      Sweep shots



      Details







      Used alcohol to remove the warranty stickers

      Cant wait to get this badboy playing down at half ohm

       I have 3 orion HCCA 152 woofers that im running on some off brand 3500 watt amps.  I wanna go with one solid amp to run all 3 at a 1.33 ohm. this is a daily driver 2003 trailblazer but I want it to hump.  the woofer are rated at 2500rms/5000peak, I currently have 5 d3100's in the back, 1 redtop in the front that I want to change out but need to find a battery that will fit due to the dual alt bracket that holds a 240 mechman and a 370 mechman.  out of these 3 amps, which one would you recommend I run on those 3 woofers with my current setup.  thanks for any assistance you can give me.

      I’ve designed an isobaric 6th order series tuned bandpass enclosure for my wife’s car.  I want to build a series 6th for experience and for science. 
      I have a firm grasp of the ins and outs of WinISD, but I am new to BB6.  So I started with measured values from my ported design with (4) 15’s, which I have dialed into WinISD and is pretty accurate.  Then I modeled the same box in BB6 to see the variation between the two programs and measured values.  That gives me a baseline ‘feel’ for BB6.
      Can someone check my design?  I plan to test and modify the design to optimize the performance, and then I’d like to funnel that real data back into BB6 so I can really get a better feel for the 6th order designs in BB6.
      Here’s what I’ve come up with so far… This got me the most area under the curve but also a decent low end response:
      [INSERT PIC HERE.  I COULDNT PLACE IT HERE WITH DIRECT UPLOAD]
      Low port (for the design shown above) is 6”H x 3”W x 33.3”L, with 2 flared ends
      High port (for the design shown above) is 8”H x 3”W x 8.4”L, with 2 flared ends
      Goal was to keep port velocities under 30 m/s, cone excursion within limits, and boost the low end response without getting a severe dip between the two port tunings.  I really couldn’t bring the high tuned amplitude response down, maybe I need to widen the bandwidth?  Figured widening the bandwidth would cause an undesirable dip in the middle. 
      ***
      Here’s the real measured TS parameters (via IM-SG) for the well-broken-in pair of Pioneer TS-W3003D4’s:
      Dual voice coil, wired in PARALLEL (for measurements below) and both subs wired parallel to the amp.
      Re (parallel, each sub) = 1.6ohm
      Fs = 31.4 Hz
      Vas = 2.822 cu ft
      Qms = 3.706
      Qes = 0.494
      Qts = 0.436
      Mms = 126.9 g
      Cms = 0.203 mm/N
      Dia = 10.2”
      Sd = 81.7 sq in
      Xmax = 14mm one way
      I’d like to set the tuning for the low side at 31ish Hz and tuning on the high side at 63ish Hz.  The subsonic filter setting will be determined via testing after the box is built and tuned to its final state.
      I have about 5 cubic feet total to play with for this isobaric series 6th setup.  I can toy with the final XYZ dimensions, I’m mainly looking for a solid set of values for volumes and port areas & lengths (if the ones I calculated in BB6 are not suffice).  Rectangular ports are preferred but I can do aeroports or kerfed circular port if that’s a better route.  I am competent with woodwork.
      I’ll be starting a build log for this box design and its installation.  Planning to include a lot of measured data (IM-SG and AMM-1).  Really stoked for this build.
      Thank you in advance!
