  1. Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    drive by....... wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
  2. Welcome to the IHoP

    awe hell, I got the first post, seems only right I get the last one! Go mrray, go! wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
  3. R.I.P. grandpa

    Just over three years ago, my family went through the same thing. I know your pain, and I, along with my family, wish you and yours strength and peace during this tough time. Grandpa was the center of our family, and it's been quiet without him. He was my son's best friend. I wish you all well, and my your grandfather rest in peace. wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee (for even though this is a sad time, we must remember, and rejoice, in the good times.)
  4. SSA Customer Rewards Program

    Very nice guys!! wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
  5. This Ship Has Sailed!

    Wow, talk about a car audio loss! Mike set the bar so high in terms of customer service, very few, SSA being one of the few, will ever get close. Mike, you will be missed as much as your stellar products, if not more so. Was it really 7 years ago I took a chance on a relatively unknown company called SoundSplinter and rolled the dice on the rl-p 12 for the wife's car? A subwoofer I still own to this day. A subwoofer, that coupled with Mike's customer service absolutely won me over. Sealed, ported, didn't matter, it produced. Then I got the first rl-i8, signed by the man himself, available for the public. A sub I still own, and use in a small, .17ft^3 net sealed box on my gaming tv/stereo set up. Everyone freaks out when they hear it, and realize it's just an 8. It, like Mike, is just that badass! Mike, I can't believe this has happened to such a great guy. I hope you get the financial side figured out, and like the other's have said before, I hope you find a way to get back into the business! We, and the business as a whole, will miss ya man! Stay in touch, my email hasn't changed! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
  6. Anyone Ever seen this sub??

    In a world where the biggest wheel seems to always win, regardless of how practical it is, I'm sure this woofer will deliver. Like Tirefryr mentioned, it's all about marketing, and guess what this thread is doing? Yep, marketing that sub. It's being talked about, which means Cadence is being talked about, which means this thread will show up on a search engine somewhere, and the cycle will continue. So, how is that sub not working? Sure looks like it's delivering to me, lol, albeit in a way most of you aren't used to talking about. Even Clarion had a huge sub at one time, and it was installed on a boat. Who knows? Maybe some rapper with a 'burban on 30's will want a 32" sub?? wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
  7. Looking for a set of 8" midbass speaker

    I happen to have a set of Kicker RMB8s, NOS, just sitting on my office floor in box looking for a home.
  8. Welcome to the IHoP

    Well, I was going to say something. Yet, I have nothing to say. Perfect for the IHoP, eh? Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
  9. The ZR1 is a monster, I really like the Z06 too!! While not the SLP variant you have on your desktop... It's my Rally Yellow 1LT/RS. It has been massaged a bit, with an Injen CAI, ARH long tube headers and hiflow cats, Flowmaster Super 44 mufflers and Trifecta tuned ECM and TCM. It has run 9.1 @ 82mph in the 1/8th and has seen it's limited top speed of 155mph. Currently sitting with ~280rwhp and ~250lb-ft of torque. Not bad for a 3700pd automatic 3.6ltr v6, lol! wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee I had saved up enough cash to get one of those. Unfortunately I got cancer and was out of work for almost a year, and my wife was going back to school. So i used almost all that money to survive for that year. So now we are going to Rome in April with what is left over... so no Camaro for sandt. Getting well and going to Rome kinda trumps the Camaro bro. Stay well and enjoy Rome, that is priceless, cars are a dime a dozen! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
  10. Welcome to the IHoP

    I have no clue what to say in here...so... Hey. wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
  11. Somewhat. I've moved the IAT sensor back to the factory location, so the car is seeing intake air temps slightly above ambient, instead of 10* below. That, with always running 91 minimum, has pulled it in to where I'm seeing 6-8* being pulled instead of 12-14* on the big end. I still think some of it has to due with my exhaust being a bit too free flowing, and the resonance from it is tricking the knock sensors into pulling timing that doesn't need pulled. I'm going to head to the track here soon, and see what happens officially. I think, too, that by losing so much back pressure, I've lost some top end, and might try a resonated x-pipe to both tone down the exhaust and add some back pressure over the factory h-pipe. What do you think? Thanks J! It's my DD toy, lol!! wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Can you hear it knocking? I hate knock sensors as they are easily skewed due to harmonics. Many times they sense something that isn't there. I'd try and unplug them or shut them off if possible. As for the exhaust, reducing back pressure will free up top end power and lessen the torque. Nope, can't hear it knocking at all. The sensors are really sensitive I think. That's due to the fact this motor has 11.3:1 compression, but can run on 87. The DI helps by cooling the pistons, but it also hurts trying to to hear subtle stuff as the injectors tick loudly. At around 500-700psi at idle, and upwards, if not more then, 1200psi on throttle, I can see why, lol. I might try and unplug them and see what happens. As to the back pressure, be it topend, or torque, I think I'm a bit too freeflowing. Even if a resonated x-pipe only cures the harmonic problem I think I have, it'll be worth it!! wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
  12. Trunk Setup Positioning

    This, +1. With extreme power levels, and I consider 3500+ as extreme, the absolute loudest, lowest system I ever built was side firing. It was in a Nissan Maxima, a pair of 12 Solo Xs, each one fired into a corner of the trunk with it's port. With a MA Audio HK4000d, two batteries and a hipo alternator, that car was beyond sickening to sit in. Like mentioned above, this was a taller, almost trunk filling enclosure, so that played a role. Also, you are going to have to play around with it yourself as well. Although for me, side>rear>front, for sound and output.
