    FS: SSA XCON D2 Gen. 1

    Me too. That is why I have 4 of them ;)

    FS: SSA XCON D2 Gen. 1

    I decided I'm either going to try something else, but haven't decided yet one what. Try the Evil series when it comes out or something else. But I'm thinking 200 for the sub is a good price plus shipping. I'm thinking the sub is still pretty stiff since I never really put a ton of power to it.

    XCON Bottoming out?

    Yes.

    XCON Bottoming out?

    It is a sealed enclosure. I'll recheck the gains as well. I usually play some music that has been recorded at 0db with the gains all the way down. The turn the volume up about 3/4, then slowly turn the gain up until I hear distortion, and then back it off and leave it there. Everything "sounds" really clean.

    XCON Bottoming out?

    After displacement it is 1.3 cubes. I noticed it more when the sub was doing a quick snap, but videos I have seen it looked like they moved more than my sub and didn't make any sound like mine made. SS is set to 25hz

    Sorry, first time I have posted a video to youtube. Link is fixed.

    XCON Bottoming out?

    I'm assuming this is the sound of the XCON bottoming out? I had little power on the sub before and just got a new Crescendo amp (1500.1) and decided to see what the excursion looked liked and noticed it started making a noise that sounded like it was hitting the backplate. Visually I guess I was thinking the XCON was going to move a little more before bottoming out. The thing still moves quite a bit. Just thought I would see what you all thought. I only did this for the second time in the video, and won't be doing it again.

    Secure Sub Box (anti-theft)

    That is definitely along the lines of what I'm thinking. I don't know if a thief would have this, but I even thought of having the bracket or strip of metal that had a hole in it, secured to the chassis with a lock that needs a key. I have those anchors under my seats for car seats that I could always use. I may have just figured out what I'm going to do. Thanks again for all the ideas!

    Secure Sub Box (anti-theft)

    LOL! I wish I had that option, it would give me a little piece of mind. It's been a long time since I have had a system, since the last one got stolen. So, I'd like to make sure I make it very difficult for the thieves. I live in a much safer feeling area, but you just never know. Thanks for all the ideas. I'm still trying to think of something creative, that would allow me to remove the box without to much trouble. But, if bolting the damn thing down is the only way, I'll just have to live with it.

    Secure Sub Box (anti-theft)

    I have a trailblazer and I'm trying to come up with a way to secure my box for anti-theft purposes. I'm looking for some ideas on what I should do. Right now I'm thinking of laying some 1/2" particle board that I somehow secure and then put some metal slats of some type on the bottom of the box that secure to the particle board. I'm looking for an easier way to be able to remove it and replace it if I need to haul something. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    while the sound is happening, can you try lowering the crossover and see if that helps. I'm curious on the results.

    XCON First Impressions

    So I messed around a lot this weekend fine tuning the best I can. I think I'm going to try a slightly smaller box. I don't have the best EQ to level out the freq, so a smaller box it is. This is just to flatten the low end just a tad. Some metal that I listen to, the bass is just a little off. I already know my midbass's could be better, and that would help with the kick drums, but once the freq goes lower it really comes alive. I noticed on White Zombie, there are some electronic drums that come in once in a while and they just play with more authority than the actual kick drum. I will just use up some of the space in the box right now to lower the volume, so in the future when I can beef up my front stage, I can add the volume back. However I can tell, that the sub just inherently has a strong low end, I may find that I will be forced to upgrade the fronts. Overall, I'm pretty excited that I own a XCON.

    XCON First Impressions

    I have more work to do, but so far I have to say the XCON is a low end beast! I built a sealed enclosure that is 1.25 cubes and have a temp amp right now which is a RF 500.1. I have some fine tuning to do, but right off the bat, I know I will be happy with this sub. Played a couple tracks from Bass 305, some Decaf, and some Lamb of God. The presence of the sub is amazing! Completely transparent and I cannot tell where the sound is coming from most of the time, which is due to the setting I have the crossover at currently. I have the crossover set a little high right now, right around 80hz. I'll start to dial it back after I mess with my comps a bit. I haven't had a sub in a long time, so my comps have been running without the crossover active. So it will take a little time to get the system to blend. I think even with 500 watts most people would be perfectly happy with the output. I'm not quite sure if it is the amp or the sub, or maybe even the crossover, but on rock and turning the volume up pretty loud the sub does make a sound that is a little hard to describe. The closest thing I can think of is "Maybe" it's the center of the dust cap flexing and making a little noise. Kind of like a snapple cap when you press it in, it makes a little pop noise. I noticed the sound free air as well, and could just very well be that the sub doesn't like higher freq. Not sure yet, but I will update if I can get the sound to either go away, or it just ends up getting masked at high volume. Overall, I'm happy with my purchase.
  14. So I mistakenly order a 4 Gauge and an 8 Gauge kit by accident of CCA from Knu. I was going to do a run of 4 gauge to the sub amp and 8 to the amp for the fronts. The sub amp is a Hifonics BRX2400.1D. Would the 4 Gauge be enough for just this amp?

    It just arrived today, so I was just verifying.
