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.
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
Used alcohol to remove the warranty stickers
Cant wait to get this badboy playing down at half ohm

*************[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.

6 Skar Audio EVL 15s
DB Drive mids/tweets
C-pillar wall built by yours truly
This thing was an absolute blast to put together. It ended up putting up nice numbers for a c-pillar, especially with budget subs. The wall was built for 6 Level 6 15s, and there will eventually be 6 5.0s.
Pictures will be uploaded as soon as they finish uploading to photobucket! There are many, many pictures, as well as a few vids. Stay tuned!
Sealing a wall. Got 2 DC Level 6 in my Subaru and glassed out most every side. Looks sealed but on music you can feel air behind the side. Any good way or method to find the spots that need attention? Top of port glassed now too. FYI, My first wall and I am NOT a professional installer.
Things tried. Fiberglass sides and gaps. Used window seal adheisive where the glassed sided meet the b Pillar. Glassed to floor and above port
