    I broke 140 dbs playing DJ Russticals - I'm the man, had my sunroof all the way open so that's a cheater score. With my sunroof closed the loudest I was at was 137 dbs, frequency changed by 1hz. All of this is with the gain low as I'm still breaking the subwoofer in. I love this little thing, it brought fun back to having bass and slamming, trying to guess your score or frequency. Hey Aaron can these be left in the car even when not in use or can certain weather temps cause issues? Thanks

    I almost did at least twice but once I started I knew I couldn't turn back. When I say it took everything out of me, my mouth was dry as hell and one forearm was sore till the next day.

    Mazda CX-5 New build

    Being a Mazda fan, from experience, I am going to suggest you add some sound deadening to the install too.

    Looks like it's time to open the door grab your trusty tape measure and do some investigation/planning.

    Front Stage will be changed out soon, I'm damn sure keeping the horns. Mids will only be in the front doors, no more rear door fill. Options are: Two 8"s per front door (Stevens Audio MB8-2) - Or - One 10" per front door (Faital Pro 10PR300)

    Got it wired up this afternoon, it's on low power as it breaks in. Sounds damn good, glad I went back with Fi. I love how that Audio Control lights up from the top, its pretty dope especially since it matches blue light theme I have going on.

    Once I carried the box downstairs and put it in the trunk I didn't even wire it up. I just closed the trunk and locked the doors. I'm wore out, sheesh.
  16. $3-4K is a lot of money that can also go really quick if you don't have a plan. A few questions to help guide the process. Do you plan on doing the work yourself? Are you willing to learn the details of RMS vs peak power to help build a quality system Are you comfortable with removing panels off your car? Are you comfortable with tools in order to build a quality subwoofer box? If not, do you have a friend that has previously put together systems that would be willing to help? If not, you will probably need to find a reputable shop. Understandably, your $3-4K won't stretch as far due to the cost of labor. What are your real goals? Listen to high quality music? Impressive friends with a rattling trunk? Do you want to maintain trunk space? Reduce road noise to increase your music experience? Just be loud? Any reason why you specifically want 2 12's?

    For my power needs it will come down to weight in space. Not that I'm concerned that much with weight. But if I can keep a spare tire in my car and avoid putting two group 31s down there, then it will be a win win to go lithium.

    I don't understand the lithium craze. To me, the only advantage is less weight. I know it's more than that, but for what I need/want a battery to do,with the cost, it's pointless to me.

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    Yes it can. Thankfully we seem to both be there now. Time will tell. For my own safety I'm waiting to talk to her until she's in solid therapy, because something is obviously very VERY wrong. COVID has made people reconsider a lot for sure. I have been thinking about it a lot, and the one downfall is the now fiancee's family lives here and unless I have something solid to move for, she's not too keen to move. I can understand that, but it's also financially irresponsible. Then again I do enjoy being in a city that has a solid setup for what I enjoy covering most; live events. I grew up with people doing that outside of Buffalo, NY and many still do it now. It can be a great moneymaker if you're happy with the condescension that tends to come with it. The snooty wives who feel like visiting these places is a charitable act. Or that because they 'have money' they can always have it their way. We saw a lot of that. Oddly enough I found a space that is in downtown Augusta, GA that has the bottom rented for a record shop, and the top two floors need reconditioning. Due to the age they are eligible for a shit ton of grants. Top floor studio, middle floor gallery. Rent out the bottom floor as a record shop but make it nicer. Could be a reasonably profitable place if pushed properly. J

    In the process of figuring out how to go lithium, don't want to throw another group 31 on my trunk. Looking into an H/O Alternator as well.

    If the box size is correct now. Why not cut off the destroyed part, re-add the correct length with a butt joint, then box the outside to sister them together? would give a cool plinth effect and solve the problem. If you don't want the plinth, could scab over the seam inside with minimal space lost. Option 2: just rock the size they are and if not satisfied, revert to option 1. If I had my old computer I would have the parameters you gave me. As I had them uploaded in Winisd. I DO have the modeling graphs uploaded on here now that I think about it...

    Mazda CX-5 New build

    Hi, I'm looking to upgrade my new 2021 Mazda CX-5 6 speakers version (non-Bose). I was thinking about 6.5" Component at front and 6.5 Coxial/Mid Bass at the rear doors, connected to a 4 Channel Amp and JBL Basspro Hub at the spare tire ( I don't want to lose space at the boot). Now, it's a bit tricky to know which speakers will fit at the doors as I couldn't find any documentation of depth compatibility for the Mazda CX-5 online. Does anyone know ? Also, without knowing the exact size can you recommend any setup for a very clear & crisp sound without compromise ? originally I was thinking to go with: Front Component:JL Audio C2-650C / Hertz Mille MPK 165.3 Pro / Focal PS165 FSE Rear Coxial: JL Audio C2-650X / Kicker CSC65 / Cervin Wega V465 Amp: JL Audio JD 400/4 / Alpine X-A70F / Focal Impulse 4.320 Sub: JBL Bass Pro HUB 11" Would love any input you guys have, Thanks Leo

    Took the day off to get this done, battery is finally mounted. Box is screwed down to car itself and wedged between foam spare tire holder and car's side panel, used a mallet to get this done. Looks damn good if I say so myself. Time to throw the sub enclosure in
