NEED MORE SPL IN MY ESCALADE!

Recommended Posts

So I recently build a box and installed my two Sundown X15's D4 wires to 1oh with a Hifonics 3200 watt amp pushing them. The box was designed by caraudiofab it is 8.5 cubes tuned to 32hz the port is currently facing the read barn doors in my Escalade. 

The setup isn't really pushing much air which I'm kind of depressed about. I am looking at options to move more air!! I was thinking of turning this box around so the port is facing the front of the car? Right now the port is about 8 inches away from the back doors which I don't feel like it is enough room? This is my first build and I don't have any friends that do this so I'm just guessing at this point.

I did have my system tuned at a local car audio shop which helped quite a bit but I'm still not super impressed with the SPL.

This is the  Box I am using below.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Great choices. I am trying to remember that twisted sounds amp that does over rated.

Edit: Here it is. The 2.8k does 3.6k. I think the 3.5k does almost 5k.

I would upgrade electrical before I went any further.

And that amp is probably putting out 2000 watts RMS in reality.

My electrical is actually all 1/0 and I'm running two batteries with bnig a big 3 on both which is 1/0 also. I was thinking about adding an alternator since that Hifonics 3216.1d does pull a lot of juice and sounds fairly decent but I want more!! :D

So, should I go with the Skar amp or the refurbished from db-r? I mean I guess i'd be waiting 2-3 or more weeks for it so that would suck but they are both the same price and db-r claims that the after market parts they use to refurb make more power and it comes with a 1yr warranty.  I can add a 3yr plan onto that Skar from amazon for $31. I just don't want to get the wrong one and be let down again lol.
