Possible Hairtrick?

Recommended Posts

I have a DC XL m1 18 that i am wanting to put in my truck (02 Silverado 1500HD). I am thinking about taking the 60 part of my 60/40 back seat and making a box above my amp rack. I am wanting to tune to 30 hz or lower and would like to possibly do a hairtrick. Is it possible to do in my truck with a single 18?

Here is what I have right now:

1 DC XL m1 18 D2

1 Crescendo BC2000D

1 Mechman 270 amp alternator

1 Stinger SPP1500D battery under the hood

All 1/0 for big 3 and running to amp

This is a box I come up with


Would I need more port? Should I change anything else? And where should I place the port? the sub will either be facing up or forward. Should the port face forward, up, or in some other direction?

I would do sub forward and port up. I would also not worry about doing a hairtrick. It either will do one or it wont. I have seen setups that hairtrick like a boss and sound like complete ass.

      Hello and welcome to my daily headaches! I'll start this build log off with my past setup, my current, and finally update throughout December as I work on probably the furthest this little Civic will let me go.
      My instagram: https://www.instagram.com/joshdashef1/
      The Past Build:
      Head unit: Pioneer 80 PRS 
      Mono Amp: Rockford Fosgate Prime 750.1
      Subwoofers: Rockford Fosgate P3D4 12" (two)
      Kicker 4 gauge amp kit OFC
      Stock Electrical (alternator included)
      Did do the big three sometime between here and current build
      Prefab Box: Q-Power Box (Dual 12s)
      Tips: Tesa taping RCA's, Marking RCA's Low/Mid/High or similar, 

      Big Three with loom. Wire was Sky High 1/0 OFC with some 1/2" loom I believe. Old military style terminals (DO NOT USE THESE) they cracked my battery eventually.

      I'm upgrading to a bigger amp dd-m4a

    • By antoinez28
      So I'm been on the web looking at different types of 5k amps that are linkable amps, so I can upgrade my current amp set up...I'm looking for a amp out of these new or used- dd m4a, sundown audio 4500, crescendo bc5500, dc audio 5k, ampere audio 5000.1. It has to be able to do around 3800-4000 wire down to 1.3ohms.
      Running 3-18s DSS ethos box is in the works....
      Electrical is dual alts stock will run the truck, mid, and highs the singer 270amp will run only for the battery bank. 4 juice box blackcherry battery back, two runs of 1/0 wielding wire.
      ( would like more batts if space would allow)
      ( playing music daily and burbs on comps)
      I'm not looking for a father and son conversation here just wanting to know which amp would be better suited for my set up that's all thanks for reading.
