  1. I've built the sealed box that was diagrammed above.

    Do I need a 'gasket' between the Fi Q 12" and the box?

    Also with trunk mounting a sealed sub in my Ford Fusion - where should I place the sub in the trunk and which way should I face the sub?

    Thanks guys!

    The sub will come with gasket, so you won't need one. As for placement, you will have to test that out (unless someone here has experience with a Fusion?).

  2. If he dont set the gain and filters right 1600 for a 1200rms subs total it to much. why does everybody think they can over power their subs?

    Because they can? If his subs can handle the power and his electrical setup can provide the power then there is nothing wrong with running more power than...whatever random number you wanna pick.

    The influence that youtube has had on car audio is horrifying.

    Hey...I learned how install an amp on youtube. I learned what the Big 3 is, I learned how to install a head unit...all kinds of things I'm probably forgetting.

    You have to look in the right places. I'd still be rocking my Duals & my Lanzar amp if not for youtube lol

  3. Yeah, well and differentiators in the world of 2.5" chinese sourced drivers is not so much either. "Amazing cooling" isn't a parameter that I'd call very quantitative nor something that would influence my purchase decision.

    What I think he meant was....the SA is a proven design. It holds it's own in the SPL world and it holds it's own in daily installs. It has repeatedly been proven to not burst into flames in situations where it's specs say it should. Whether that's a product of it's design or a product of marketing is... irrelevant really, considering it's price.

    There are hundreds of people who are satisfied with the SA series so to count it out with something as simple as "Oh, the GCON has 3 inch coil, it'll take more power" is ridiculous. There are some subs out there with 4" coils...does that mean they automatically take more power than anything with a 3" coil? Nope.

    EDIT: And I'm not downing the GCON in any way. I'm just saying that coil size alone is not enough to make one woofer better than another.

  4. I have a brand new set of VIBE Audio SPACE3D midrange+Tweet setup (THERE IS NO 6.5 INCLUDED IN THIS SET. ONLY THE MIDRANGE AND TWEETER ARE INCLUDED) that I was going to use, but I'm changing vehicles so it won't work. I only tested both sides to make sure they work and they both do. I paid 89.99 and you can have them for $65 plus shipping to your door. I bought them from http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_31677_VIBE-Audio-SPACE-3D.html.




    I also have a pair of Rockford Fosgate T1692 6x9's. There were under the back seats of my car and were only used for a few shows that I went to. I took them out after barely using them for two months and they've been sitting ever since. One grill has a dent and two spots where the paint flaked off because I dropped it (just the grill, not one of the speakers). They look, smell, and perform as brand new. Ill let them go for 75+ shipping. Here is all the info http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_19509_Rockford-Fosgate-Power-T1692.html?SearchClickout%5Bquery_id%5D=11771181&SearchClickout%5BIgnore%5D=1








    If you want something PM me! I may be able to go a little lower considering I'm not using any of this stuff. Thanks for looking!

  5. I have an Audiopipe AQX-1800d in GREAT condition. I paid 226 and they go for over 250 on eBay but you can get it for 175+ shipping to your door. It will ship in the original box with both the bass knob and knob cable. It has a tiny scuff on the silver pipe on the top of the amp but is flawless other than that. It's the best amp I've ever owned and withstood the hottest summer in Central Texas history without protecting once. It beat the hell out of my Sundown SA-12's.
