    Some new equipment to help calm my OCD
  3. Hello, My FI neo 4.x 15" will be arriving soon and I'm trying to get some ideas for the enclosure ill be building. I was thinking around 4.5 cubes tuned to 30-32 htz with an 8 inch versa tune aero port. Going to triple baffle the box and have some internal bracing. max dimensions for my GTI are 30x28x28 Still new to car audio so id really appreciate if someone could verify that the enclosure im building would sound good. my sub is the neo 4.7 15" with an extra spider and omega coil, yes i know i should have gone with the 4.9 oh well... thanks

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    I always think it's worth interviewing. Sometimes you get to interviewing and you realize it's not at all what you think it is but way better. Sometimes it's just worth talking yourself up for a bit or getting some leverage on a current employer. I may post on a similar topic in the RTMS

    I wont be linking them in this build but both will go under the hood, one for main power run to the back and one for the power run between battery and alternator. I do wish I was doing something special with them and taking advantage of their features but maybe in the future when I upgrade power but that wont be anytime soon.

    It was a different hiring round and I decided not to continue then.

    A three year gap in interviews? Did you lose out barely to someone in 2018 and now they are circling back? Distance is a huge factor and important too. Hopefully whatever decision you make proves very fruitful for you!!! J

    Thanks man. Love covering fight. It's great to shoot and when watching in person it's less stressful and very relaxing. J

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    Average rent here is 4x lower than in Vancouver, and where I live rent is the highest in the country. Average pay for my position is 6x lower compared to Vancouver. Let's say I want a new Wrangler, I'd pay here as much as in Canada/US. Or even more. So ignoring the real-estate, consumer goods are really closely priced.

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    It's just an invitation to the interview, would be the second one, I already had a first interview with them in 2018. On one side, I can't complain about life here, in-laws are close, we're getting ready to build the house, the city and country is safe, I can spend time with the kid and wife instead of slaving away on a job. On the other side, the pay has way more potential than here, there are other opportunities for all 3 of us on the other side of the pond (jobs, education, travel, hobbies). I think the biggest factor would be distance from the in-laws.

    It means they need to sharpen their pencils on their offer.

    Now, after the papework is done for the house and we have everything lined up to start building next spring, Amazon emails me for a job in either Toronto or Vancouver.... Such a tough decision...

  21. Is this even worth trying? I have a 19 Ram Crew Cab and it looks like the 10" GCON is probably one of my few options as far as a shallower mounting depth and smaller enclosure size. I know recommended is 1-.1.5 ported, but I just had to ask. .84 will be after driver displacement, probably end up doing an external port against the back wall of the cab somehow. I am trying to retain a little space under the rear seat for junk, so I do have room to go bigger if its going to be the difference between meh and good. Power will come from an Arc XXK1500 (roughly 1000wrms). Im just worried a single 10 sealed will not give me the output I am looking for. Thanks for any input.

    Im not going to lie, I thought the blue would clash with the red cluster and panel lights. But it pops real nice, especially with the two tone seats. The side picture with the doors closed and windows up, shows you how bright lights are because that's 5% tint on those windows.

    I did all the interior lights Blue LEDs and it turned out great.

    Oh, I forgot the Audiopipe TXX-BDC3-15 sitting in my car too, I need to decide where I'm sticking that. I'm also buying 4 NVX VS15's to stick in the Aztek, just haven't decided how they're going in quite yet. I'd love to do a wall build with them but not exactly ready to be bombarded with the "Why would you use such a low end sub in a wall build" opinions so for now, they're going in a box.

    I'm socially retarded thanks to an abnormally high IQ that turns me into a useless potato of a genius. Medical professionals call me Autistic, I'm not convinced yet. If I ever say some overly dumb [excrement] just know I'm not trying to be stupid, I literally just don't understand what's going on. With that out of the way, I live near Seattle. I've been involved in car audio in some manner since I was a kid, lately I've been trying to learn anything and everything I possibly can about automotive specific sub-bass acoustics. In the last year I've gone through more drivers than I can remember, designed and built more enclosures than I can count, and have been investing in tools and training to try to improve the craft. I have 8 years experience as an automotive technician with a self-hatred, I mean focus in electrical. I'm hoping I can learn even more here. Currently drive a 2003 Pontiac Aztek. No, I didn't buy it because of that TV show, I bought it because it sat at my friends dealership for 8 months and I needed space for my kiddo's so I got a killer deal on it. Project list: I have 2 EVL-65's in 0.60cuft tubes with 6.28in2 of port area tuned @ 40-somthing hz that I designed and built, selling those this weekend. 1 Kicker Comp 10 in a 1.38cf Net enclosure with 9.42in2 of port area tuned @ 35hz, currently the setup I'm using because I built the enclosure to prove a point and I'm enjoying rubbing the point in someone's face. I feel like this post needs photo's... Photo is the waveform from the left and right rear channels on a headunit, buy a cheap Dual and that's what you get... Video is the Kicker making my sunglasses jump around on the dash, so exciting. Posting is actually really difficult for me because I am on the Autism Spectrum. I'm not even remotely joking, I struggle with social interaction, BADLY, so go easy on me here. This is my best effort at being "normal." Thanks! 78D80BD8-CC45-4FAC-A579-8CB867357C92.mp4

    How did you guys find SSA???

    I always search here first for advice on those tiny, intricate, detailed anomaly's that I'm sure someone's ran into in the past. After reading so many threads, I decided to finally shed my cloak of anxiety and join the conversation. That, and watch M5 engage in battles of wit against the wit-less has become a small-time hobby of mine.

    These are some real nice fuse holders, you can link multiple holders for a huge distribution power point or even turn them into ground blocks, really cool. I'll be using this one under the hood and may get another one for my battery to alt power run down the road from now.
