Hi all! Thanks for having me! My name is Brandon and I drive a '94 F-150 I've always been into car audio but its always been major brands like Kicker and Alpine. I finally decided to get some SA-8s. I got a good deal on a new set on V1s. I have 2 Sa-8 V1s. The box I am using is a Ground Shaker SPQ28 http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_62689_Ground-Shaker-SQP-2-8.html. My amplifier is a Hifonics HFI1500 @ 2 ohm. They are brand new and have about 3-5 hours of play time on them. On some songs there is what sounds like a mechanical sound. Like its slapping inside of itself. Also the dust cap gets a pretty warm. I want to eventually rewire them down to 1 ohm but i want to make sure im not going to break the subs also... Other then that I LOVE these subs. People don't believe they are 8s until they see them...
Hi guys new to this site, and I seem to be having a problem, I have 3 SA-8's been running them for a few months, love em, but the other day, I noticed one of them wasnt playing, and one of the other was moving very little compared to the other, so I figure a terminal connection had come loose, so I pull it out of the box to find that the tinsel leads are burned right through, on both subs near the center, , now when I depress the center I get no scratching whatsoever, and looking through the vents the coil looks prestine, and im very much wondering why this has happened, as I have an alpine pdx m-12 so the subs aee getting rated power, as well they are in a 2.1 ^3ft tuned at 34 hz port are 29 square so its all to spec, and I let them break in gently, and I am very frustrated, anybody got ideas, or what to do ?
I currently have a 2005 single cab Dodge Ram 1500. I recently ordered a Sundown Audio SA-8 D4 v.1. I have a 1k Hifonics Mono Amp i was hoping to push this sub with. Im having issues getting a box design. I built my own and friends boxes but only merely guessing needed airspace and very unfamiliar with tuning. I under stand its got to do with the driver, box volume and port length and size but beyond that im a noob. From reading around I've seen that these subs need about .5-.75 cubs of box at about 30 to 40hz? My first box attempt was around .6cubs but the port was about 1"x8" and only 27" long which im almost positive is incorrect because the sub will not even do any notes below 40hz with tones. I need some assistance on where i should start box wise and if it would be possible to fit 2 of these subs in the back of my truck. To give and idea of what the space is like I currently have a 4.cub box with 2kicker 12's behind the seats. the box is around 40+"x11x14. Im sure there's room is mainly the videos from YouTube with these subs with ports bigger than the actual box space is what scares me. I appreciate the future help.
