  1. Uh this is awkward... I may or may not have some PCB's made if you're interested. I wouldn't mind sending you a set :)

    All my Audio friends has settled on down ??

    Pretty much I started a family, bought a house, and travel for work. So I end up getting zero time for audio, plus the financial cost is something I really can't stomach anymore. I have a pair of Icon 12's and an IC2200.1 in my Malibu but that's as far as I've gone and will go for probably awhile.

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    Long time no see ya'll! I recently got into MTB and picked myself up a Specialized Pitch and I absolutely love it.
  4. Another thing to note, since you have such a large battery bank (I assume 5 g31's), charging at 5a each is going to take forever to bring to an acceptable level.
  5. I would wire the stepdown on a relay and attach the trigger wire to the key switch, then attach the radio constant and accessory wire together to the 12v side of the stepdown so you can have a switched source. I can draw a diagram if you'd like.

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    I've personally used this Sony Microphone and its excellent, its pretty great all around and if you do want to use it in a loud location it does not get overwhelmed very easily. I actually used it to record car audio videos, it withstands 160+ dB no problem but is sensitive enough to pick up everything clearly in a quiet location.

    Wanting to upgrade. Icon to x-zcon

    IIRC they are the same except for the cap change, there might be some minor soft part changes but it shouldn't affect much, If you wanted them to match I would just recone your old one and then purchase another woofer.

    Second Skin Audio Spring Sale!

    I edited the title for you as it was just the letter S.
  11. They're pretty easy to make, or you could have ProjectDb or ToolMaker make you some.
  12. Here are my old bus-bars that I made to fit on top of dual post batteries.
  13. It's debatable how necessary 45's are needed for daily use but all in all it doesn't hurt. As long as your 45's aren't gigantic they don't take up much space at all, if you're worried you can calculate it using you can use this website to calculate bracing you can also use this to calculate the brace volume http://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/enclosure-volume-calculator/

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    Stop being a giant? That being said finding shoes for me is a nightmare, I have average size feet but they're a bit wider.. to add on to that my right foot is slightly wider. So I end up with one loose shoe or one shoe too tight.

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    I'd like to get a suit made out here in Tunisia, you can get one made for about 200 dinar which is under $90 but I'm horrible at picking out styles. I'd like to get one nice suit so when I'm in training at Harris I can be a cut above the other people there.

    How much space do you have under the rear seat? If you can weld/fabricate you could make risers and extend the height of the seats for more clearance. Is it a bench seat or a 25/75 split? If so you could pull the 25% out and build an enclosure there.

    No add to cart

    Personally I would prefer one amp over two, strapping amps in my experience has always been a bit of a hassle. The Ampere 3500 would be an excellent match for an Evil, I can personally guarantee you that the Evil can take MUCH more than rated as long as you're smart ;). As long as your electrical is solid there will be no issues there!

    I sent Aaron the link to this thread
  20. I've installed many of the PBR line from Rockford, they are super tiny and put out a lot of power for their size with the only caveat being they can tend to run a little bit hot, though that being said I've never had one shut off.
  21. Honestly there could be a sizable difference difference since you're doubling power however, you would be better off optimizing your enclosure or increasing cone area since that's a much cheaper route.

    Xcon recone question

    Motor changed but the gap size stayed the same, I myself have a first gen XCON and I spoke with Aaron last week about getting a recone and he told me that the soft parts are similar with the spider setup being different and the coil sizes the same.
