    Very nice!!! Love the red port. I feel ya on MDF prices. In Japan, sheets are smaller (3' x 6') and cost almost $80/sheet! I'm also looking forward to the release of the Evil crossovers. Where on the door cards are you going to mount the tweeters? I originally planned to mount mine on the door card but ended up getting some pods and put them on the a-pillar.

    Welcome back! Can't wait to see your build progress. I have a 2012 Subaru Forester and did almost the exact same thing (evil tweets in the A-pillar, 6.5 Evils in front and rear doors ran off SSA IC150.4) but have a SSA Icon 12 in the cargo area. That Evil 15" is going to destroy your car, lol.

    Aiming Tweeters

    First time going active and need some help with aiming tweeters. My vehicle is a JDM '12 Subaru Forester XS. H/U is Alpine CDA-9887. I've got SSA Evil tweeters in my A-pillars (in swiveling metal pods) and SSA Evil 6.5 mids in the front and rear doors. They're all being ran off a SSA IC150.4. Tweeters are on CH 1/2 and mids (x4) are on CH 3/4. Where should the tweeters be pointed/aimed? I've read several articles but they all say something different (point at the driver, point at opposite headrests, aim between seats up at the headliner, etc). Is it just trial and error? Anyone with these tweeters or helped with a system with these have any advice? Thanks. Oh yeah, currently the sub is an OG SSA 12" ICON ported (2.5ft^3 @ 30hz) but I might change to 2 12" Adire Audio Brahma Mk II sealed later.
  9. I'm not an expert but I wouldn't think there's too much of a difference, if any. Only way to find out for sure is to email/talk with Sundown Audio (https://sundownaudio.com/support/contact-us/) I've emailed them before and they got back to me within 1-2 days. I don't have Facebook but they might respond faster using that platform.
  10. Here's the manual: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/554907/Sundown-Audio-Saz-1500d.html?page=4#manual
  11. The amp is rated 800W RMS at 2 ohms so your sub will be fine. The 3000W at 2 ohms you listed is with 2 amps linked.

    Icon Amps?

    From what I was told, the 1800 woofers site isn't correct as they haven't updated it yet to match the SSA site. I wanted another IC2200.1 too.

    Wanted: SSA IC2200.1

    Thanks! I don't have Facebook but got in contact with him.

    Looking for a new or slightly used IC2200.1 in good condition physically and mechanically. Thanks!

    OG 12" ICON

    Thanks Lithium for the advice. I thought about swapping the outputs and using the HPF from the HU and the LPF on the amp but then I wouldn't be using the sub output. Would it really matter if I didn't connect the sub to the sub output and just connected it to the rear? Right now I have it connected to the sub output with my amp's gain set (with 40 Hz 0 dB test tone) with the sub level at +15 (0 ~ +15, pg 13). If I connected it to the rear outputs, I wouldn't be able to increase /decrease the sub level if it was too loud or not loud enough. I guess I could use the fader to try and control it. I still have some time before the MDF gets here (takes about 2 weeks). If the difference in power between the 2 amps is going to be negligible, I might just swap amps (probably the easiest fix). The temps are freezing and I hate working on the car in the cold weather without a garage.
