Duster Joe's 1976 Plymouth Duster Trunk Build
Customer Joe M. Build Info:
1976 Plymouth Duster 2006 6.1L Hemi 1996 Borg Warner T56 (Viper) Trunk is 53 cu/ft space
Complete car was done with three boxes of Damplifier Pro (90 sqft total). Trunk specially was completed using 8-10 sheets of Damplifier Pro.
The trunk before any Damplifier Pro sound deadening.
Installing the Damplifier Pro butyl sheets.
Interior trunk walls only needed one full sheet of Damplifier Pro each to reduce sound to just a deep thump.
After the Second Skin Damplifier Pro was installed. The Damplifier Pro dropped the sound of the fuel pump to nearly no sound at all.
Here a picture showing the trunk sound deadening completed. It’s totally covering the floor, wheel wells and one full sheet of Damplifier Pro on each inner quarter panel. The rear trunk panel was completely done as well.
First off I wanna apologize for changing my mind so much. My financial situation has changed, so my future setup ideas have too. Even though I have not followed through with other plans ya'll have helped me with, I have learned a lot for each comment or post I read.
On to the enclosure idea. I will be getting a single SA-10 D2 as soon as my current setup sells. I will be running it off of a BRZ1200 @ 1 Ohm (for headroom). My goals are for it to be decently loud (I have had an E-12, hope to be comparable to that), and flat sounding for all music types... From dubstep to decaf to classic rock to country. It will be in my daily which is the trunk of a 2000 Honda Civic Sedan (DX EJ6, D16Y7 Auto). I am planning on building an enclosure that is 1.4 cubic feet, with a 17" long, 4" aeroport, tuned to 34.8 Hz.
My questions are as follows:
Is the box too large? I commonly see Jacob recommending 1-1.25 cubes for a ported SA-10.
Should I keep the 4" aero? It gives 9" of port per cube (high end of the spectrum for an aero)
Or go with a 3", or just go slot port... If I go slot, what kind of port area should I use?
Lastly, is that a good tuning? I would like an F3 around 28Hz.
Thank you for all your help, as always.
This topic is really for my new upcoming build which will be two Sundown Audio SA-12s on a Hifonics BRX 2400.1D sealed off from the trunk. The box is currently being built by Dave The Box Guy, it will have three different tunings with interchangeable ports (20Hz/28Hz/45Hz). For now, while I sit and wait, I am going to post my current set up just to show you all some of the work I have done so far. I don't have all the pictures since some things were done a little while ago such as, deadening, changing my door speakers, wiring etc. but I will eventually tear some things off and show you how I installed everything. Here it is....
Head unit: Kenwood KDC-X995 w/ iPad Mini
Equalizer: Clarion EQS746
Mids/Highs: 4 Infinity Kappa 62.9I (wanted to keep stock look so they are in the stock location of the doors)
Subwoofer: 1 15" Sundown Zv3 D2
3.3ft3 enclosure tuned to 33hz (Sub Up, Port to the side)
Mids/Highs amp: Hifonics Zeus ZXi80.4
Subwoofer amp: Hifonics Brutus BRX 2400.1D
Electrical: Stock 150A alternator, XS Power D6500, BIG 3 to come soon
Deadener: Second Skin Damplifier
***The only thing that will change with the new build will be the sub stage which is listed in the first paragraph, everything will most likely stay the same... for now lol***
This isn't my actual car, but this is what it looks like completely stock on the outside..
Here are some pictures of my car after some cheap mods! Tint is %30 and hubcaps plasti-dipped!
Tinting my tail lights soon! Don't have a pic before the de-badge so here is the after.. If you can tell I replaced the stock antenna with a "shorty"
On to XS POWER, haven't done the BIG 3 yet but that is on the list of things to do.. Here is the stock battery under the hood. I already ran the 1/0 gauge wire through and plan on shortening the wire to the fuse soon as well. I will try and get pics of how I ran it later..
Look how small the stock battery is compared to the XS Power D6500!!
Finally installed, it was a b**** to get into that small space.
So I will be ordering an OA-12v2 D4 very soon after selling my current system (Upgrading from a Fosgate Punch P2 12, 2011 model). I have a Rockford Prime P500-1d to work with, so the sub will see just over 500 watts. I have read in many places that the more power, the smaller that the box can be, and the less power, the larger you can build the box... generally. So I was thinking of doing a 2.5 cuft enclosure for the OA, on the 500w. It will be going in the trunk of my 2000 Civic sedan, most likely sub back, port side. Does this sound appropriate? Is there another way I should approach this? The box will be tuned to 30Hz via 4" aeroport. Thank you for any help, and I apologize if I left out any important details.
