    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    Those with truck experience, I need some help here. My truck has quite a bit of room behind the seats. I have an 18" Ultimax I would like to run in there. I am worried about cancellation if I fire forward, so I am going to load it off the rear wall. I've never used this application in a truck before. Does anyone think it will be an issue?

    I wouldn't buy TP from that guy. Too much bad news and mystery behind him. No idea how he's still in business.

    Roush has always made good cars. They do a lot of design, engineering, and manufacturing for Ford Racing as well, so there is a huge factory relationship between the two. I wouldn't hesitate to buy a Roush. I almost bought a Roush Ecoboost before I picked up my '16.

    The car needs some help in the sound department. Nothing crazy, but just wanted it a little louder.

    I don't shop them any longer, so I'm not up to date on pricing.
  6. You're using an LOC on a Boss radio? Does it not have RCA outputs? If the amp works when you give it 12 volts from the battery, then obviously the turn-on lead you are currently using is causing the issue.

    My baby momma spent $33K on an Escape in 2011!

    Recommending a Mustang. If I had that money, I'd only opt for the GT350. There were a couple dealers selling some boosted GTs for like $40K though if you want to save some money. Around 800HP with warranty.

    Started removing my H-pipe today. Broke a couple studs on the PS manifold, so now I have to remove the front suspension and K-member, AND the manifold for repair. I guess this was a blessing in disguise though as when I was removing the suspension, I found both ball joints excessively worn and a broken spring. Never felt an issue or made any noises. Odd.

    I wouldn't even bother.

    I am not a fan of the C8. Perhaps when I see it in person, but, for me, the C7 is the second most beautiful Vette, and the best modern Vette to date. I get why they had to go mid-engine, but to me, it's now no longer a sports car nor grand tourer.

    Further North. Maybe you'll get more snow and can sled more.

    Do you have enclosure specs?

    Smelly subs

    What impedance are the drivers and what is the lowest load the amp can handle?

    Ironically, a guy at work was attacked Thursday after placing a ladder on a wasp nest. The doctor counted at least 28 stings.

    You stated your amp settings were changed as well. Keep in mind the vented enclosure changes how the drivers react as well. You gain cone control in the passband, but go under that and your asking for mechanical issues quite easily. If the speaker wire was an issue, it would be hot or melting. This will only happen if the wire is too small that it causes a resistance increase akin to a bad connection. The wire will heat up and degrade though. THe only thing this will do to the subs is cause voltage drop limiting output.

    Sub going off but it’s not hooked to a fuse

    Do you mean your amp is shutting off? Like, you accelerate and the amp cuts out? If that's the case, it sounds as if you have a loose connection and it's exacerbated by the movement from accelerating.

    The wire is NOT going to do anything. Crutchfield is good to buy stuff from, but unfortunately, their "advisors" do not know much. The 16 gauge is more than adequate. Current is relatively low. You're not going to see the damage. Think about it. The drivers stink and they're not supposed to stink. They're reaching their thermal limits and you're smelling the burning adhesive and/or coil varnish or maybe even the coil itself. I'm almost certain you're reaching mechanical limits as well. I'm guessing you're tuned right around the setpoint of the bass boost circuit on your amp, and the boost is set halfway up. This is just an assumption, but common sense is hitting you right in the nose, so make sure you take heed.

    . . . . Hence why I said you could get a Vette and truck. Last Jeep I saw was over $100K.

    Fuck the Jeep. For that money, you can have the Vette AND a new pickup.

    YOu missed the vented part didn't you. Unfortunately, just looking at the dials on the amp isn't going to give us the info we need. The smell could be harmless or it could be, and more likely IS, that you are reaching the thermal limits on the driver. It may be adhesive or the coil burning. You've likely already caused some damage as well. Given the fact the enclosure is now vented gives the scent a straight path to your nose now, but it's also most plausibly the reason you're reaching their limits in the first place. I would be willing to bet the enclosure is tuned relatively high and you reaching past the mechanical limits as well. It would be great to know your enclosure tuning and vent size also, but we're still at a loss on the power side.

    I wouldn't spend ANY money on a Jeep.
