Low and behold i get the box finshed, spent 60bucks on aero ports got everything together then another 20 bucks on lag bolts to hold the XXX in place get the XXX bolted in put the access panel on the box bolted that down tilt the box down to put it in the truck and i heard a loud ""SNAP"" so i was like great one of the lag bolts holding the woofer in broke...... if you havent held a 06' XXX you just dont know the weight on this massive thing mine weights in at 95lbs...... anyway took the box back out unbolted the sub, all the bolts were in tack take the subs out and ""vola"" one on the spokes on the basket cracked right in half... so i called up RE they are going to take care of the problem.............by the way i got both sets of the RE components in and they sound freakin rediculas.... iv had DLS Focal and MBquarts and these outplay all of them

i know that.....i can read u know
i was just pointing out snapping bolts....he was snapping bolts be4 but slimmer bolts....now he put thicker bolts and snap thos as well as one of the basket spokes
if he made a magnet brace that would not have happen

the fist statement without the second one is what had me (and probably others) thinking you misread.

i was not familiar with his previous situation.

i totally agree with a magnet brace, or go the easy way and up-fire it :)

You might wanna put the full description in your post, so it doesn't look like you can't read.

I don't think it would be too hard to implement a simple magnet brace...

well iv only got around $675 to play with. im lookin for something i can do a nice install with and it doesnt have to get hella loud just lookin for something that is going to sound good.... more then likely im going to fiberglass onto the rear panels in the cargo area do somthing like that or maybe like a wrap around like the JL audio demo esclade...... and every install i have done with the SE's has sounded awsome we did a box chevy with 6 SE 12's in a blowthrough with 3 Crossfire VR1000's and it was very loud and sounded great doin it... throw me some ideas .... or some pics you can find on the net with some custom installs on SUV's

Not 100% sure but i heard from an RE dealer that the SE doesnt have the same build quality as it did and that their now made in china.
How bout 1 15" MX? And do you not want the XXX or can they not give ya one?

You already built the box. You bought a 15" XXX and that's exactly what you should get. If RE gives you something other than a 15 XXX, then there is something really wrong with their company....

well i can get another XXX if i want or they will trade me out with something else... which i think in going to get somthing else ... remember guys i only have 2k watts to play with so i dont think that is going to be enough for the MX's
