Hello all, I have been away from the forums for some time since graduating college and started working again. Now that I have some money to finally move away from these seemingly low powered setups (6 systems since 2012), I am looking for help with my wall build. I am going to be building the base to the wall in my 2016 Ford Focus sedan in a week or two, and there is a lot of room to work with (over 30 cubes). I will be running 2 18" ZCONs on (undecided) either a 5.5k or 6.5k amp with supporting electrical (batt bank, lots of OFC wire, and HO alt). This is my daily, and I just want a ground pounder with no care to what numbers it'll put up in the lanes. I would like to demo a lot. I'm thinking 8 cubes per sub (16 cubes net) tuned to 32 Hz is a good place to start (recommended by SSA). I'm thinking either a center slot port, or a top port. ** I listen to ALL kinds of music, Decaf/DJSNT, rap, hip hop, metal, rock, 80s/90s pop, jazz, country, movie scores, blues, dubstep/electronic, classic rock, oldies, etc, etc..** Now... my questions are: How much port area do y'all recommend? Is 8 cubes of net volume per sub a good amount? Should I be alright running an underrated 5500 watt amp, or go with the 6500? What port orientation shall I go with? If I think of more questions, I will be sure to post them. P.S. Sorry if I am asking some questions that are common knowledge among these builds, but this is my first "loud" and "high powered" setup. My two loudest systems thus far have been a single Obsidian Audio 15 on about 900 watts, and 2 Sundown Ev3-12's on 1300 watts. Thank you for your time and patients everyone! Cheers.
OK, So I recently aquired a 1996 jeep grand cherokee and am in the planning phase of the project. I am looking at running a 3:1 ratio 4th order with either 4 15" or 18" drivers. The issue I am running into is that I am concerned that the box height will end up too low to mount the drivers on a flat baffle. With this being said I was wondering if anyone has toyed around with angled baffles. With this setup I was going to do a driver's side port and tune around 45-50hz. Would this be too much of a hassle and prove to be a nightmare, or should I try to use a more upward firing baffle to fit the 4 drivers (similar to watt's truck but larger and drivers stacked in a 2x2 config instead of 1x4). By my figures I should have roughly 27 cubes to play with as far as interior box volume. If anyone has any ideas im all ears (i like getting loud but like lows also). Planned power is in the 15-18k range, and since my last build ran 12k and only touched 54s, id like to get as close to 60s as I can. Not really new to box building, just having "writers block". Thanks, Chris
Excursion posted a topic in Newbie Sign INI need some suggestions on what subs to wall up in my 2001 2dr S-10 Blazer. This will be my first real build the only thing I have had that was "loud" was 2 15" Kicker L7s dual 4 ohm wired down to 1 ohm by a 2000 watt hifonics brutus (The only competition I was ever apart of I got 3rd place with this system in 2008 at milan dragway in michigan at some street warriors 2000+ watts class I wasnt even going to enter. I got a trophy for it.) . This was 4 years ago. I have not since then had a system in my ride and have now FINALLY decided to get back into the car audio world and will be trying to go "Big" this time. I want to keep my back seats folded down and or maybe take them completley out so I have all the room behind my front seats to work with. I would like to make this an SPL ride with a some what decent sound quality being a daily driver. I do not know the exact dimensions behind the front seats but I will measure tommorow since I am serious about this build. I plan to take roughly a year to make this build happen, so I am willing to spend the money on it but im sure as most of you know saving money takes a little time. I have been constantly on the internet for about a month now every night trying to learn as much as possible from reading forums to watching videos on YouTube. I am just getting into forums on the internet, so i dont know a whole lot about them but they look like a great place to ask for opinions. I would like input from subs, amps, enclosure types, batteries, wires, head units, even down to what RCA cables are better than others. I dont want to make this a cheap build, but im not going to go out and buy the most expensive equptment available (even though I understand you get what you pay for.) I will be installing most if not all of this on my own or with some friends. I would like to make a wall of subs, but I am totally open to other ideas. I have been looking at FI audios 18s SP4s and 18s BTLs n2, DC audio XL 18s, DAD BD 15s, Obsidian Audio 15s, Sundown NSv3 15s. Those are just some subs I have looked at. Amps I have been looking at are Sundown NS-1, Audioque 3500s, Stetsom 7k, Rockford 2500bdcp. I am open to anything really but would like something that will set me apart from others, and make people WANT to listen to what I have and not say "oh look hes got this and that" and his buddy says, "yeah so does everyone else." or " yeah Ive heard that a million times." I know I am leaving out A LOT and I mean A LOT of other info but this is getting too long. Just ask me questions and you will get honest answers. And remember I am open to ALL opinions and ideas. I just need some ideas or opinions from everyone. I will take everything into consideration! Thanks to everyone!
