Hello all!! New here and just have a quick question to get me started, picked up an 18" soundqubed sub and i'm going to build a ported enclosure with blueprints from soundqubed; problem is they don't specify what type of wood to use or the thickness, some info here would be greatly appreciated!! TIA! Jesse i included a photo of the build specs for all who is curious!
I would like to introduce myself, I'm Nick from Houston. First, thanks for making an incredible place for someone like myself to learn and discuss audio. I found sundown and that's what led me here. I'm a DIY person but don't have quite as much knowledge as I should and would like to educate myself with the goal of reducing my mistakes. Car audio has changed quite a bit. My last system was 2 used 12's and amp installed in a 91 eagle talon back in high school. Oh, I also had tweeter stuck to the pillars completing my "system". So, Id like to eventually build a complete system that is loud as hell, but done the right way. So far I have 1 sundown x-10 in a 1.3cuft ported box. audio pipe 1500w mono amp. JL audio c2 components in the front doors JL c2coaxial in rear deck powered by JL 700/5 with a audio control DQ-61. 2 Stinger 4/o powers & Grounds for ea. amp. I installed it all myself with lots of trial and error. The only aspect im happy with is the SUB, even with the150.00 amp. Sorry for the long intro. I look forward to all the great advice and I am anxious to learn from everyone willing to offer some advice.
I have been looking around car audio forums and have decided that this would be the best place to join as I am trying to get honest answers to some questions that I have about a system that I want to build.
A bit of background on me. I am a resident of New Mexico and have a degree in EE. I have always enjoyed listening to all types of music and consider myself, at least somewhat, an listening enthusiast.
I had an '03 Toyota Matrix upgraded with two of the OLD Alpine type R 10" subwoofers, Alpine head unit and a whole host of different components powered off a 45W alpine 4 channel amp. Alpine fan at the time.
I currently have an '08 Chevy Cobalt Coupe with fully upgraded exhaust, read LOUD, and completely stock, read SUX, stereo which I am looking to upgrade.
I did the custom look with everything exposed on the Matrix but I am looking to keep everything as stock looking as possible in my Cobalt. (Don't want it to be a target.)
I will be starting another thread to ask about speakers and such for my listening style, hard rock to heavy metal including Double Bass and Violin.
