Hello all I tried to find this question already asked which I am sure it has been but don't spend a lot of time on the forum and for some reason find it really complicated to search for stuff.
My equipment Dc Audio level 6 18 m4, Sundown Audio Scv7500.
Question #1 What is a good setting for my low pass crossover?
Question #2 My old amp is a Scv3000 it suffered water damage several mosfets were destroyed in the event. Would sundown be the best place to send it for repair?
I stepped up quite a notch from the 3000 to the 7500 but its bad ass! Love the woofer I have had them all seems like and before reconing this one it was the M2 series which lasted longer than anything I have ever had. I reconned it maybe 2 months ago I probably would have never blown it but my 3000 watt amp was clipping like fu. I purchased a cheap pos oscilliscope for $60 off amazon after the recone and found out my amp was clipping by the time I turned it up to 10 on my deck. This is the reason I purchased the 7500 so my now M4 woofer could enjoy clean power.
Thanks for your time I appreciate anybody answering this question one more time.
whats up smd! its been a good while. feels good to be getting back into car audio, the hobby that made me into a commercial/industrial electrician. the last system i had was in a 98 oldsmobile intrigue with a single 15" in the trunk. first was obsidian audio on a hifonics brz1200, then went with a skar vvx 15 after that. ive had other equipment before those, played around with jl, sundown, audioque, t3 audio compnents, hertz speakers... so that was like 5 years ago. had to sell everything because we were in need of money. our first child was going to be born soon and i was the main person bringing in income working at ace hardware. well, now, thanks to the love of car audio, i signed up for an electrical apprenticeship program here in california and started my career as a general electrician. needed more than 12v sparks in my face lmao. finished the 5 years as an apprentice, took the state exam and passed! officially a certified general electrician. i currently work for anderson pacific as a journeyman electrician in the bay area. but anyways, enough of my history. i want to build!
so i have somewhat an idea of what im looking to get for my 2012 honda accord. i commute a lot! ha so this will mainly be a daily setup. maybe compete just for giggles in the near future. because of my job and not owning/commuting in a pickup i need my trunk space. all of it haha. and also would like to have my spare tire easily accessible. so that being said i am willing to sacrifice my rear seats for the sub(s). im only keeping one seat available for a car seat but the rest will be used to fit a box. so i have something like 25"w 24"h 18"d to work with. i already have a pioneer deh-80prs installed and replaced the stock front speakers with a set of skar TX65C and the rear with a pair of skar fsx 6.5s. yup, i think im going with skar all around. i had good experience with their sub and components in the past. and theyre very reasonably priced for what you get. unless someone can persuade me to go with others lol...
i will be running the stock alt for now (130a) thinking about getting a mechman later on.
1-xs power d3400r for the front
1-xs power xp3000 for the back
with that im hoping to supply a skar rp2000.1 and possibly a sk100.4
already stated what i have for mids n highs
a single zvx15 ported @ 33hz or 2- evl12s @ 32hz (i know go with the 2 12s more cone area.. but idk something about having a 15..)
will be all sky high wiring and sound deadening (had some left over knu deadening from prior build that i put on the front doors.)
big 3 of course w/ 1/0
and im sure there will be more as we go on. theres always more lol
so what you think? just something simple for daily. my old lady is giving me a budget of 3k lol less is better tho. any recommendations, suggestions, comments, thoughts, some schooling would be grrreat!
heres a simple box design i was messing around with on torres and sketchup. 4cu ft after all displacements including fiberglass. tuned @ 33hz. will be 3- 4" aero's
thats it haha sorry didnt get a chance to get any pics of the speakers. i will next time around when i open up the door panels again. same for the rear deck. thanks guys...
Hello all! New to the forum, but have followed for a long time of course.
I am in need of help with creating a ported enclosure for a single nsv3 12
My maximum outer space limit is 13"H x 30"L x 25"D. Looking for a 32hz tune or suggested.
Can this be done? I'm ok with any slot port design. Thank you in advance for the assistance!!
Hi, i'm designing a box for my zv5 15", i've do a project with google sketchup but i don't know if my design is good or not(i leave the google sketch project). I've do my project Seeing this video:
net cu.ft= 4,25cu.ft
W(28,74") - H(21,5") - D(20,75")=OUTER DIMENSIONS
driver displacement= 0.25 cu.ft
port displacement= 1,57 cu.ft
port dimension = W(3,4") - H(20") - LENGTH(33.6")(carstereo.com)
my question is: IS GOOD THIS TUTORIAL?IN WINISD THE PROJECTS CHANGES (the port length is different on winisd) For this reason I am doubtful on my design. Can you eventually crete your own design if my box is not good?
