just got done with my chevy trailblazer build. here are the specs
Mechman 250 Amp Alternator
XS D3400 under hood
XS XP3000 in rear
big 3 upgrade
0 gauge GP Car Audio wire throughout
heatshrink and lugs crimped by me
2- Skar EVL 15's wired to 1 ohm
1- Skar SKV2 3500 watt monoblock
4- Skar PAX65 6.5's in all 4 doors
1- Skar RP 150.4 4 channel amp to the doors
Amps are bolted down with socket head allen screws into spiked t-nuts
fuseblocks are also bolted down with allen screws into spiked t-nuts
Subs are also bolted down with allen screws into spiked t-nuts
all lugs are hydraulic crimped by me
all heatshrink done by me
my 2004 Chevy Trailblazer only 56000 miles on it.
Sony MEX XB100BT radio. It puts out decent power
ripped out the wimpy stock speaker and put in the skar PAX65
installed back in stock location modified the speaker ring BINGO
mechman 250 Amp alternator. Out with the old in with the new.
Installed. Took more time to put belt back on. 1/2 shorter
under the hood battery
big 3 done. 0 gauge GP Car Audio wire
couple of fuseblocks ran
starting of box build 3/4 birch
got the Skar EVL 15's fitted in there
monster box in back LOL
started some wiring. box has angle brackets which is bolted to wood
and wood is bolted to frame the rca's are covering the bolt other bolt
is under battery.
got speaker wire and rca's all tesa taped and zip tied down even put a
fire extinguisher in.
used 8 gauge subwoofer wire to subs and 14 gauge to door speakers
all 0 gauge to amps. Even used that Bluetooth voltmeter that ExoContralto
recommended. works pretty well.
EDIT (10/23/17): SOLD
I bought a bank of 73Ah K2 Lithium two months ago. I couldn't find more than a single bank. Since then, I've sold my car and have decided to add 3 banks of lithium to my build, so I am buying all JY Power. I already have 2 banks of JY, so I'd like to sell this K2 bank to get a third JY.
The bank with the copper bars is the one for sale. I made the bus bars, and the neat thing about them is that you can configure the cells in any configuration, unlike the JY bars.
Here's a thread I created concerning internal resistance. These batteries measure 3.3milliohms. One JY bank I bought measures 3.3milliohm and the other 2.7milliohm. So these K2's are in good shape.
Here's another thread detailing a conversation I had with Cameron at K2 concerning the good health of these cells:
Talk about boosting your resting voltage! I had 395Ah of XS Power AGM installed in my car already. When I added the 73Ah cells, the system voltage rose to 13.3V and stayed there strongly. I ran these for about a week before I sold my second car and decided to go bigger.
Asking $700 shipped to the lower 48 with bus bars included. $650 delivered to (almost) anywhere in central/east Texas and Lousiana.
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!
Project Flexington: 160.3db @ 37hz!! Parallel 6th order walk through, DC Neo Elite 18s, 4 DC 5.0ks, JY Lithium, 12 banks of XS CapsBy the_garynator
*************[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.
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):
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):
Sub Amp, kicker warhorse:
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:
Mids are tbd, probably 2 8" midrange speakers.
Lots of Baltic birch:
