    front stage: in the roof facing down?

    No questions Sencheezy, just me saying why I did what I did, I am very happy with it... I still hope to bring it to a comp or two someday Posting pictures of really crappily located speakers in order to justify your own system design is a logical fallacy. Just because some other people have done stupid things too, doesn't make stupid ideas more valid. "If everyone jumped off a bridge, would you?" That said, I don't see the point in trying to explain why I personally have issues with your current speaker layout. You won't care, it won't make any difference, not worth the effort. If you are happy with it, more power to you. That's what matters and stop trying to justify yourself to us because, first, most of your justifications don't make much sense and second, it honestly doesn't make much of a difference to us as long as you are happy. Do your own thing and bask in the glory of individuality. Agreed, its your ride dude, do what you feel. If that setup works for you, more power to you. Individuality is one of the things ive always enjoyed most about car audio, lets you put your own "flair" on things.

    15" BTL box size

    Electrical was never an issue as ive put considerable thought into the requirements of both setups, but the single 18" would be alot easier on my electrical. Friend of mine did (2) BTL 15s on a RD D9 (5k) in his 02 Crown Vic and it was nuts. Honestly, the single 18" is looking like the better choice due to the box requirements, id rather run the single sub off a good bit of power in its optimal box as appose to cramming the 15s in a box thats too small for them to perform like I want. Guess the path is clear, lol. Thanks for the reply though,

    15" BTL box size

    Alright, im kind of tossing the idea around between two setups in the trunk of my Crown Vic. Setup one is (1) FI BTL N2 18" in 7 cubic feet net tuned to 32hz. Setup two is (2) FI BTL N2 15s in 8 cubic feet net tuned to 32hz. Here is my problem and question, the first setup with the single BTL will slide right in my trunk with no issues using the box design and cut sheet posted on this forum for it, but the second setup is the issue. Can I run the BTL 15s in a smaller box than 4 cubic feet net each and still get optimal performance? Id like to shrink the box and bump up the tuning to 34-35hz if thats possible. 3 to 3.5 cubic feet per sub would be a much easier fit for me in my car, but wasnt sure the BTLs would like a box that small daily on music. Plans are a Crescendo 5500 for the 15s so about 2500 RMS daily, no comps just music. The single 18" would get a Audiopipe 3k @ 2 ohms. Would I just be better with the 18" or can I go with a smaller box on the 15s? Any input is greatly appreciated thanks.

    I have not posted on this forum in a while, but props for a killer build, 90s Fleetwoods have a special place in my heart. Very nice job on all the custom work, it came together well!

    My doors

    Here are the doors in my 2004 Ford Crown Victoria, Driver side, dont have a current pic of the passenger side but its basicly the same. Im just curious how much i should order to cover the inner and outer skin of the doors with (2) layers? Doesnt have to be a exact number just rough estimate thats all. This will be my first time using a sound deadning product. I plan on using roofing flash to cover the big holes. My drivers (ID oem 6.5s) will be in fiberglassed pods in the bottom of the door panels. Thanks.

    Im sorry to hear about your loss
  13. Beautiful, I love those dust caps, mimics the Havocs I see. What size boxes do these subs like, esp the 15s?

    eD19ov.2 vs. Fi Q and Bl 18s

    Just read the whole thing, and my head is killing me, seriously Im glad your going with the BLs after they were suggested to you about a dozen times, esp after you mention your tuning. I think it will work out fine. Heres a 12" BL off a Nine.1 Hope things work out for you good luck.
  15. Possible about to purchase a pair in a day or two, curious about what would be a optimal box recommendation and tune for these subs? Just looking for a loud, daily, no comps, just something that sounds good on music. Thanks guys.

    Little Sundown System

    Really nice build, its cool you and your dad got a chance to work on it together. Seeing the E8s in action has me really excited about my build

    12 Sundown E8s

    He still got his backseat. He just took it out. In his car, like mine and yours, its just a couple of big bolts that hold it down at the bottom, and the top slids on a set of clips at the top. I took out mine before and the bass difference was like night and day, and I was using my back up subs ( old school Polk DB 12s sealed on 800w) But, I agree, if you going to lose the backseat, why not go all out and do a wall?

    12 Sundown E8s

    My car is currently in the shop awaiting repairs from the recent break in. Since I have the time and I have not posted on this forum before, (I think) I was just wondering how you guys feel about these little guys. Should only need 6 cubic feet net ported, and have almost the cone surface are of (4) 15s Just considering something different for a good sounding daily that will drop low and get fairly loud. Power would be from a 3000d of course. Almost forgot car is a 2004 Ford Crown Vic seen here, old setup, just to give you an idea of how big the trunk was, that box was 4 cubic feet net tuned to 28hz I would have to do subs and port up, but I did that with my single RL-p 15" and liked it better than sub/port back so that doesnt concern me. Just would like to have some feedback from the forum if this seems doable, ive never run 8"s and im kind of curious. Want to break away from the normal, (2) 15s, (4) 12s etc and do something different. Thanks.

    12 Sundown E8s

    Sounds interesting, but honestly I have zero experence with a 6th order bandpass. 4th order I got a little so I understand the physics behind both types. I cant imagine how loud that must be!!

    12 Sundown E8s

    80, do you think I would have the room for (16) in the 4th order vented through the rear deck? Be a little easier to wire and a little more output I wish I could do a wall, but GF has a 2 year old, so need the back seat for the family.

    12 Sundown E8s

    That would be really cool 80 and prob sound great. I wish I could have something like that done and be able to just channel all the output into the cabin. I would have to take it to a really good shop to do that kind of work. I see what your saying though, can you scribble it down so I can get a better picture of your idea for the design?
