wiring 1ohm, 2 12" box design, cap or no cap?

Recommended Posts

2005 dodge ram 1500

I have this massive triple sub 10", shared lower vent, chambered box 16.5x20x49(with port).... port size is 2.25"x49"x12.5". I have 2 alpine swr-10d4(1000rms-3000peak), and one swr-1043d(600 rms-1800peak). all were previously ran in parallel @ 1 ohm (i think) going to a rockford fosgate t1000.1 power series. Suprisingly it hardely even got warm and pushes them hard.

BTW!!= I just yesterday wired in my red top underneath my back seat and i have that wired to the bullz audio 2f cap=> everything wired to that...(i have a normal stock truck battery up front)

My questions: 1.Is my port the right length?(can it sound better if made longer/shorter/complete chamber)

2. Is the box itself too big or is it ok?

3. Where can i find a wiring diagram or does somone know how to do 1ohm to all 3 speakers or just two?

4. [would having a diff rms sub on the same 1ohm wire do anything bad?] if so.

5. i have a 1600 boss amp that i've wired into my truck in my current setup of a center console box i made(but it seems to be having a hard time pushing it because it goes onto "protect" mode alot.)

6. should i get rid of my capacitor and stick with just the two batterys?

And i have a 1600 boss 800.2 amp and two kicker cvr 12" 05cvr124(400rms-800peak) that im selling to a friend and i was looking for a badass ported box design thats loud going into the back of his old jeep...the available space is{length from back seat to rear door}x{width fromside to side of car}x{height} 25"x35"x15" (If i want to be able to slide it in from the back without him having to take off his top or putting it in from the front) if not then 25"x35"x MIN(15")MAX(30")...

My questions:1. I also have some nice component speakers laying around... could i cut holes for them too?[would i need to chamber them completly off from the subs?]

im open to any ideas i can make some crazy stuff.

My current setup is a center console box with the two swr-10d4's (recently attempted to invert the one closest to front and doesnt sound right) going to that rockford fosgate t1000.1bd... and when i inverted i hooked one to the boss amp and another to the fosgate from the capacitor...but just didnt sound right... i have a problem when they are both right side up... the way the box is made all the air space is at the ground and the sub closest to front gets pushed out further and clips...i also beleive the box is just barely over the minimum for sealed air space.

My questions: 1. take out the capacitor= just 2 batteries

2. i tried to invert it? and couldnt find a diagram to reverse polarity but idk if thats what i need to do or what.

3. port it maybe? but how?---

p.s. everything is perfectly sealed on both boxes.

??? You got all those subs in the same vehicle? Or did I not read correctly?

To answer one question....get rid of the cap. It's not needed. That one is easy.

The rest of it I don't understand either. What subs you currently have installed in your truck?

Umm..I think he's saying he has those subs to choose from.

At the moment i am current running the center console box with the two swr-10d4's... but I need help with all 3 setups... i have one of the alpines inverted and it just isnt sounding right... but yes i do have all of those subs to choose from... the two kicker cvr's im selling and LF a cool ported box design.

Yes if you are running two subs. One normal and one inverted you need to reverse the polarity on the inverted sub.

He needs help bad if anybdy can figure out what he has?

My guess as well.

And yes, the cap is NOT helping. Yank it.
