    I am the newest n00b...

    I like seeing a lot of F-body guys on the boards. My buddy has a '95 Z and I'm constantly working on it, so it's nice to have ideas ready when problems arise.

    BONER!!! If only I could find a nice GN to compliment the Cobra, I'd be the happiest person on the Earth!!! Wait, I'm broke.

    Subs Amps or Enclosures A Vs B Vs C

    And I have to disagree with that. Application comes first.. You can take the best install and the best equipment and the best MILK but it is no good if the application is wrong.

    30+ Band EQ's

    I just picked this up off Ebay, basically brand new for $100. Do I need it, no, but for the money, I just couldn't beat it. Now if I can find a 4-way active crossover I'll be set.

    She looks good...

    SWEET!!! But man, in that pic, your head looks almost as big as the driver. And Clarke just wants a clean shaven man of his own!

    low end comparison

    Density is the key in enclosure material. MDF is quite dense and inexpensive. If you are intent on using plywood, I would suggest birch ply for strength and density, but this is rather expensive, around $40 a sheet depending on location. Hence the widespread use of MDF.

    The Infrasonic (subsonic) filter IS a high pass filter. Okay here is an example. You take your multi-channel amp and turn the high pass filter on. Let's say this filter is set at 80Hz. Now everything from there up will be heard through the drivers, but nothing below 80. The infrasonic is the same thing. It will block frequencies below a set point to avoid dmamging the driver. When you play a driver in a vented enclosure you run the risk of losing cone control if playing frequencies below the tuning. Now I have never had this problem with any driver just playing normal music. But that does not mean you will not. Test tones are a different story. I myself like to tune my enclosures as low as possible, so this is never really a problem for me, but a lot of the common pre-fab boxes are tuned rather high (35-40Hz), and you can damage the driver playing them below tuning. So, if you have a Magnum D2 in a 4 cube enclosure tuned to 30Hz, you would set your infrasonic around that point to avoid playing anything below 30. This is not something that is a necessity for all applications, but rather a precautionary measure. Now about that flux capacitor....................

    An infrasonic filter (subsonic) is basically a high-pass filter that will block frequencies below a certain point much like any normal high-pass filter. The idea is to block frequencies below tuning to avoid unloading the driver.

    Yes, for the time being, I will be just mounting to a baffle suspended below the deck. I may actually build a new deck at some point, but I hate to cut that much steel out. I started the car with IB in mind last year, but was going to use different drivers. The cabin and trunk have both been sealed completely already, so all I have to do is build the baffle, mount,and seal. good to go. I fell in love with IB 2 years ago when I had 4 Tempests in my attic. Now THAT is a good way to piss the neighbors off!

    Good to hear. Only thing I'm worried about is power. Guess I'll just start out small and see how it does. Look for pics soon!
