Whoa!!! That's nice. Looks like someone wants to be heard from the next city over.
he will be running a sundown 1500 or 1000d. he has nopt made his mind up yet.FourDoor said:What amp is he running to push those 4 10's?
That looks really good and must sound even better.
That box does look killer!! Just another example of James awesome box building skillz...ecrawford said: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!
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.t22a80 said: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.
With a healthy battery, big 3 upgrade and grounding kit you should be fine. The 1500D is efficient...ecrawford said: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.
Big 3 upgrade? I'm not sure if I know what this is?P-Dizzle said:With a healthy battery, big 3 upgrade and grounding kit you should be fine. The 1500D is efficient...
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?t22a80 said: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.
I wouldn't take it that far. The reason adding grounds helps the Titan is because our trucks are very poorly wired.ecrawford said: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?
