  1. if your looking for dimensions i had a box designed at 16Hx40WX14D with a double baffled front. and a 1.5 inch thick center to seperate the two chambers
  2. optimal being ported sounds the best? i love the way it sounded when i had it set up with the port. i just cant come to terms with a box that big in a smaller trunk. what i mean by that is i dont want the subs to sound like their trapped inside of a shell or something being that they are so close to the back seat.
  3. ok so to explain it best i am going to attach pictures of my old system setup.not sure how the pics are going to show up on the message so bare with me. so i would like to do something similar to this but in a sealed box manner, same idea with the subs facing the back of the back seat. Just wondering if it will work. am thinking 3ft^3 1.5 cubes per 12"gcon. I am just wondering weather or not the fact that there is a port guiding the air into the cabin is the only way in which the subs air will travel ( ie... i dont want to have to have the rear seats down all the time.)
  4. hey guys, I have recently purchased a 2006 subaru legacy 2.5i. my previous car i had 2 12 inch gcons on a sundown 1500 amp, a 6 cubic foot box that i sealed into the cabin. was wondering what would be effected if i were to seal the box instead of port it and still reverse the subs facing the cabin. so run a 3 cubic foot box sealed off from the trunk with the subs facing the cabin. i just am wondering if this would work. or if it would sound like shit. haha. i have the box designed to fit into the trunk so i can seal it off. I am trying to save space (i snowboard in the winter) roof racks can only carry boards. id have more than half the trunk left with the box ive designed. but im still trying to figure out the electrical. was looking at the mechman 105high output alt for the engine and a dc 2700 (i think). maybe switching my amp to a rockford 1000 that apparently draws less power off the electrical (we'll see). i would take any advice given as long as you dont lead me in the wrong direction haha. if M5 or any of the vets read this, Ill answer whatever questions you have. correctly. thanks guys.
  5. if you can find a used one for sale, get a sundown 1500d, I have 2 12" gcons as well and it works great.
  6. whats shipping to 04105?
  7. ill take it if it hasnt sold yet
  8. yeah same here they work well, you should be ok though, might wanna wait for a second opinion just incase
  9. I cant say for sure but I think it could work, As long as the ballasts put out the same wattage that the bulb requires then there shouldn't be an issue. I just had to have 2 ballasts replaces under warranty and they sent me the same voltage ballasts for both my low beam and fog light.
  10. i believe its the voltage that the bulb receives from the ballast
  11. jig saw for the fiberglass (with a fine tooth blade) . A router for the plexi glass.
  12. I have A full set of Xenon headlights, and they are amazing, especially in the rain and winter time. They were 80 per kit (a little above your price range but worth the 15 dollars to me!) here's the link: http://www.xenonheadlights.net/
  13. Hey guys, I am starting to save up some money to put into a system for my car and I am trying to decide on subs. Ive never had a big power setup before but I wanted to take a shot at it. My car is a 2002 hyundai XG350L. I want to do the setup to either have the port going thorugh a skipass or ported through the rear deck. I want to seal the box from the trunk to maximize potential. My original thoughts were to go with 2 12" xcons. But now that I've been starting to shop around im thinking that a single 15 might work better. Im really having a tough time deciding because 12's and a single 15" xcon would both be good setups. I know that there is a major power difference between the two setups and that there is more cone space with 2 12's, I just want to know if a single 15 will play loud and low but still sound good. I am looking for chestpounding bass but good sound quality as well. I know that the xcon has potential to do so, but would 2 12's get as low? may be worded weirdly im half asleep writing this. lemme know what you think and if theres any questions just ask. thanks.
  14. So a more accurate response curve can be made, and they will finally realize that snake oil and fairy dust does not make an enclosure sound good. They are winning competitions, not really needing to know if their design works or sounds good, and you are wanting to know what brand of snake oil and fairy dust they used ??? You docked me 2 rep points and this is all you can come up with Duran ??? Sounds like you are the one trying to discredit their build ... not M5 ... I didn't vote anything down, I most certainly cannot vote you down twice either. you personally giving duran shit, I hope they ban you. It's what you want anyways. EDIT: Didnt mean to point that banning comment at you, reread the comments and saw it was someone else, didnt mean to be a dick. I just dont think that you should comment to the people that run this forum like that. You got to understand something bro ... Me and Duran has had plenty of discussions before and came up with great conclusions every time ... You've got alot more reading to do bro, not just on this forum ... I do not have anything against Duran, His post are very logical, professional, and clear to understand ...and this is why I questioned him on this one ... This set of post you quoted me on here has been corrected, Don' worry about it bro ... Yeah I know I probably have more reading to do, I am on here for about 4 hours a day going through updated posts and what not. I just feel like this topic really should end because all its doing is ripping apart this forum. I chose to use this forum because everyone on here seems to be here because every other forum sucks ass. This was the one that got filtered out as a great forum in my mind. I am not worried I'm sure you and duran have worked it out. I am here to gain knowledge not argue. I hope that it can continue that way.
