  1. Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    Rockford isn't so nice when you get there either. Where you going?
  2. Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    Contemplating building a Bluetooth boombox myself. For me it is to use on the "trailer" we bring to the lake that holds all our shit.
  3. Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    That is horribly lame. We start after Labor Day which IMO makes sense.
  4. Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    Nice. We made shit too but things like beer pickles, pickles, pickles green beans, rhubarb strawberry jam, banana bread, zucchini bread and cake . I feel like I left off a few too. Home make weekend.
  5. SSA Evil 18 Help

    Yes, turn all that down and set it up right before you destroy your sub. While you are at it you should share some details on the enclosure it is in...
  6. Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    I may unbottle some
  7. Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    I do wish my truck would turn from lock to lock. 305's weren't the best idea for that.
  8. Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    Stupid camera has guidelines you can't shut off. Stereo integrates with my CAN bus and shows the bending ones so I'd rather use those.

    More GM cheap bullshit. Rear view camera pooped. Checked the wiring and it was the camera. Pull off the Applique in the rear to get it out since it screws in from the top. Everything inside rusty and nasty as hell. Bolts spin in the plastic, but comes off fairly clean. Took the $480 GM camera out, cut it in half, epoxied in a $15 Amazon camera, JB Welded the cleaned up bolts in place on the Applique and am now waiting for it to dry. Trying to decide if I just pull a fresh wire the whole way or splice. Probably take the same amount of time and the thing came with a wire.

    I need to redo what is in my boat. Probably will be next spring anyways, but wanted to ask. Already 2 miniDSP's on board
  11. Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    I assume they aren't very marine sealed either because of the phase plug?
  12. B Stock Discounts Damplifier & Damplifier Pro

    What makes it B stock?
  13. Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    Aaron is the phase plug on the Evil mids threaded? ie, any hope for a coaxial mounting of the SSA Evil tweet in the middle?

    Sorry, I wasn't super clear. The Seas Neo that you linked USED to be the defacto driver for your sort of application. I generally have a Seas boner, but that driver I am not terribly impressed with. The Evil tweet would be a better choice. As for the mid, I haven't played with the SI TM65s but am generally not interested in trying. Large Xmax drivers playing higher in frequency is something that is far from trivial to design around and the SI crew does not have a ton of engineering measurement capability at their disposal. It is possible the design is fine, but it is also possible it is a wreck. Taking subjective internet reviews as the gospel is also horribly frightening as the average car audio enthusiast can't hear crap. If I were going to spend SI money on the drivers, for your application I would recommend the Seas ER18. There are other drivers that do other things better, but ease of integration into your system is key and that driver is super easy from that domain. (ie, wide and flat frequency response without anomalies). The Evil mid is priced real aggressively for what it is though so you aren't paying Norwegian markup like on the Seas. The CA18 even integrates easier, but you lose some mid clarity that the ER has.
  15. Morel Hybrid or Focal KRX2

    Not a bad idea. The classic budget Seas Neo is better than the drivers in the sets you were looking at and the SSA Evil is more appealing. Other possibilities are more esoteric as you could fit some depth and something larger than the size of a neo tweet, but it is probably way more hassle than gain. Reducing to a 3/4" driver will improve the off axis but raise the crossover point. Starting off without that limitation would be good IMO.
