SWEET MAN!

I'm glad you went with the SUNDOWN/BOSTON combo, it works really well together. This is just insane though! haha

From the pictures, this has went above my expections! I'm feeling like a kid at christmas! Yeah I haven't made up my mind on the 1000d or 1500d yet. James says that the four of them slam with just the 1000 but I was thinking that if I used the 1500 it would put less stress on the amp. It may also be a good choice in case I want to change the subs out for something different years down the line. Don't worry Dizzle and t22a80. I'm not going to think on this a whole lot and I will be ordering the amp from James the first week in December.

This looks top notch James. Great work!

The 1000D is the way to go... If you ever need more power you can always add another 1000D and strap em... The little 1000D is nasty at 1 ohm...

That box does look killer!! Just another example of James awesome box building skillz...

The 1000D is probably all that you NEED however I'm a fan of more than you need when it comes to power. But I'm not talking about a 8000 watt Jensen amp. I'm talking CLEAN power that a quality amp can provide. As long as you have a good clean signal from a decent source and an amp with proper gain setup that isnt clipping you can run almost any speaker double of what its RMS rating is. For example my sub is only rated at 500 wrms but my Arc XXK-2500 bridged is supposed to put out 1100rms. Now if the electrical system can support that is a different story however I am giving the sub way more power than its rated for and its not hurting anything. My CDT comps are powered by another XXK-2500 and getting 275wrms each side and they love it.

HEADROOM is your friend, distortion is the enemy, remember its distortion that blows speakers not watts!

Get the 1500 but you should consider upgrading your alternator too if you plan on giving it a real workout! Or do what dizzle said. You could strap 2-1000D's or wire one up to each set of subs.

What about the 1500 with an capacitor? Would I still need to upgrade the alternator then? If so, than I will just go with the 1000.

With a healthy battery, big 3 upgrade and grounding kit you should be fine. The 1500D is efficient...

How large are the dimensions on the 1000d vs the 1500d?

You are seriously making me consider going with 4 10's as well. :D

Big 3 upgrade? I'm not sure if I know what this is?

Big 3 are the grounds on the truck. You could probably just get away with the active tuning grounding kit if you didnt want to make one yourself. Thats what I did and I have no dimming lights with the factory battery and alternator.

I wasnt saying you MUST upgrade your alternator but it woudlnt hurt. The 1500 is one of the most efficient amps on the market so you have that going for you!

Caps are a joke... save your money. They do help in some situations, but typically not enough to say so.

The active kit makes a huge difference. You can really tell a difference in the way the truck starts and the power windows won't make the lights dim. Uprgrading the power between the alternator and battery won't hurt either. I have installed both the active kit and home made kits. The active kit is worth it especially if you don't have the proper rings, heat shrink, cable and crimpers. It also comes with a bolt to add a ground to the alternator.

I think that for what the Active kit costs its not worth the effort to make a set yourself. Stillen makes a kit too but its a lot more money for the same product.

Here is the link. Its 50 bucks with free shipping.

So you can teach an old dog new tricks. I have never heard of doing this. Does this really slightly improve horse power and fuel consumption also?

I wouldn't take it that far. The reason adding grounds helps the Titan is because our trucks are very poorly wired.

Hey dizzle and any other installers on here. what would charge to build this enclosure. this is a test. because someone said i was crazy high on this enclosure. Just want to make sure I am in line on pricing this thing. You know i try to keep prices very fair.
