as stated above, this is for two dual 4 type r 15s, with a xx herc @ 2 ohm on each. the gains will be set appropriately. hyperflex 1/0, monster rcas, yada yada yada. hopefully 2 monsters and an iraggi alt soon if all goes well.

here's the truck:

8 cubes after ALL displacements, @ 32 hz. right at 100 sq in of port.

i picked up two sheets of MDF today, but i feel like **** right now so no work started today.

pics will start tomorrow most likely.

indeed. lots of people run 2k daily but i wouldnt trust that at all.

i'm going to set the gains for around 1300-1400 @ 2 ohm probably.

generally the Rs will tell you by their smell whether you are pushing them too hard.

lilmaniac2
01-23-2007, 07:36 PM
yup but that was a true 1800 watts... daily your impedence rise is going to be alot more hopefully... but the rs are gonna get stinky after a little bit tho

very nice design.... but i do have one thing to say

yup, 200 or 250 amp right before the amp will be fine.

PSturmer
01-23-2007, 09:28 PM
ok so then 250 is what people are using? i just dont want to fry the amp. is one yellowtop going to be enough? eventually i will get a new alt, but not untill summer.

Lil_KB
01-23-2007, 09:33 PM
i'm using 250, dunno about others...

and i ran mine on a stock 90 amp alt and stock battery, it had hella voltage drop but never below 12v...but this time i'm gonna do it right and upgrade my electrical.

PSturmer
01-23-2007, 09:40 PM
i just dont have money right now. thats why i am going to go with only one 10'' right now to play around with. my friend has a bxi 1606d off a stock electrical and **** those lights dim. its a 15'' L7. the day my termlab comes i am metering it for sure.

h/u - pioneer deh-7700mp...i traded an alpine 7893 for this thing plus cash...and now i love it. the tunability surprises me considering its nowhere near the best pioneer has to offer, and it's much better with skipping and scratched cds than my alpine was...

http://i25.photobucket.com/albums/c81/Lil_KB/Picture006.jpg

just a little 1/0 :)....i'll be getting another run, ground, and fuse soon.

whats the distance from the port, to the side wall of the truck interior?
is that 8cubes after all displacements are accounted for?

it'll have about 8" to breath...should be enough.

and yes, i counted all displacements. it's like 8.4 after port, then after subs and bracing it should be right on 8 cubes.

PowerNaudio
01-23-2007, 09:59 PM
seems fine since the port is the width of the enclosure and the port has to be no higher then 7.5" since you said you have 100sqin of port area, then 8" of clearance should fit just fine.

ya, port is 6.5" x 15.5"...

Lil_KB
01-23-2007, 10:26 PM
anyone have any ideas for a finish on the enclosure?

i was gonna just carpet it, but now that i think, this box is gonna be used for a while so something unique would be nice....i want it flow with the interior of my truck, whatever it is...

01-23-2007, 10:32 PM
hmm port to the side? most people have good results with porting up or forward in trucks. did you find that porting to the side was better?

Lil_KB
01-23-2007, 10:33 PM
yup, i personally liked the ports to the side better.

i'll get meter time and find out which is louder in my truck one day, but port to the side is a lot more convienent to design imo.

Sweet setup LiL_KB, everything looks great. What made you decide to go back to Type R's? It will be interesting to hear your review on how these 15" type R's in 8 cubes compare to your 12" type R's in 5.5 cubes.

As for box finish I'm gonna hafta recomend doing the glossy black mirror look like I do to my box's, it's hard to do and takes time, but in the long run I think it's worth putting the time into it. If you want you can buy a different color lacquer then black, maybee glossy white would be tight to match your truck, that would be very unique looking box if you did that.

Imagine this finish, but in white...

forgot to respond to this...

IMO after playing with type r's, and a few high end subs, you just can't beat type rs when you are trying to stay on a budget. i LOVED the way they sounded personally, and my last setup got pretty loud considering that it was pretty conservative. it was a perfect DD.

so now i'm gonna try and squeeze some numbers out of teh 15s.

lol, come on, you should give it a shot. You can do it probably 5 days total.

This is what my plans are for painting my 18" BTL box...

Saturday:

7am - slop on wood filler all over the cut edges of the MDF and on all of the nail holes.

8am - sand the entire box hella smooth with 80 - 120 grit

9am - primer the entire box (white spray primer made for wood).

11am - apply 1st coat of black lacquer.

2pm - apply 2nd coat of black lacquer.

6pm apply 3rd coat of black lacquer.

let cure over night.

Sunday:

8am - apply 4th coat of black lacquer

For the rest of the day just marvel at you giant black box.

Monday:

You want to let it cure all day.

Tuesday:

You want to let it cure all day.

Wendsday:

It will be ready to get wetsanded with 2000grit, do this for 1 hour.

Buff it out with buffing compound for 20 minutes.

Polish it out with mcguires gold series wax. 20 minutes.

I wax my box like once a week for the 1st month. It was hella silky smooth by teh end of the month.

Lil_KB
01-24-2007, 05:11 PM
i actually think i will do it.

can you list the exact products you used? i need to make a shopping trip. :)

and yes, glossy white would be GORGEOUS if it turned out right like yours, but i'm not sure how good that'd look in a dark black interior.

Ya I'd stick with black, it will be a good contrast with your trucks white paint.

When do you plan on doing this? If you can wait till this weekend we can do it at the same time.

When I get home from work today I'll tell you what the exact paint is that I'm using.

So far i've done only the port of my box. I used spray lacquer on my last box and spray lacquer of the port of ym new box, but I think I may buy a bucket of lacquer for the outside of the box and just brush it on. It wont look very glossy or even, but as long as you have enough coats of it on there you can wetsand it out to a great shine.

Lil_KB
01-24-2007, 05:27 PM

You may need another day for the box to cure then before wetsanding. My temps are 44 low 65 high.

It's best to let it cure in the sun, I've been told. I'm going to research different ways of curing paint faster right now.

Anyone know of some ways to cure paint faster?

Lil_KB
01-24-2007, 05:55 PM
ya...i'm gonna see where my amp situation is after this weekend, and then i'll determine how fast i want the box done, and if i have to wait anyway, i'll go ahead and take my time. if not, i think i might fleckstone it or just order some carpet.

SHiZNiLTi
01-24-2007, 05:59 PM
Ya, you can allways mount the subs in the box and put it in your truck the day after you get done with the 4th coat. It's just that you need to wait a few days before you wetsand it.

* Where you mounting the amps?

Lil_KB
01-24-2007, 08:11 PM

but its upside down technically... the side with all the numbers, etc is down on the board. guess thats just how its supposed to be...

is it ok making a one pass cut? how many passes should i do?

energizedsbs
01-25-2007, 10:34 AM
you'll eat up your bits in one pass or break them... i would do 4 passes... i usally drill both holes for the jig bit and do one speaker then to the next speaker then i adjust it down a little under 1/4" and go back and start with the first hole agian

I'm rounding my corners tonight. I'll take pics of what bit I'm using etc. check my log later.

01-25-2007, 06:49 PM
Use the 3/8 round over set the depth where you want it then just guide it over the edges. Test the depth on some scrap wood first so it doesnt leave a lip.

Also for cut outs I use a upcut spiral in two passes 1/2" and 1".

lawl.

it'd be too much wood filler and sanding down perfectly to get the whole thing done right...with the "stands" on the bottom theres gonna be a lot of cut edges showing.

UPDATE:

ok before anyone says anything, I know it looks really rough. i still have a LOT left to do. today was just about making it solid and it's definitely solid and airtight.

lots of clamps, screws, glue, and silicone. that's all that today was. i didn't get any build pics, i was in a hurry and the cam batteries had to be charged anyways.

i know i forgot to paint the port, by the time i noticed, it was too late to tear it back apart. everything lines up well though, it's coming along nice.

friday's list of to do's:
-get the bottom "stands" on
-get the 2x4 bracing in
-clean up everything on the box
-sand down the rough edges a little
-try to paint the port
-carpet
-holes for sub wiring

stay tuned.

Nice looking final product. Once your done with those 15" Type R's you should get some efff eye BL 15's :D Honestly though I bet the R's are gonna get crazy loud when you feed them 1krms each.

When are you gonna dynamate your roof? My buddy has the same truck, but with (2) type R's in 5 cubes and his roof sounds like a thin cut sheet of tin bending back and forth.

1k? psshh. try 1500+ to each.

and idk when i'll dynamat it...it doesnt bother me that much...and i'm gonna be getting a new truck in another year or two...so i don't really want to bother...bouncing **** on your roof is fun anyways..:p:

:sigh:...advice time.

pulled the seats out today to begin on my amp rack, and now i don't know where to start. theres a LOT of room between the box and the back of the cab...so it has to all look clean because it's gonna be way more visible than i thought. I don't want something extremely nuts...just something simple and clean that can be done with basic materials...

i'm planning on laying some carpet over the whole white area in the back, probably some jet black from PE. i might make a "false floor from MDF to cover up the bolts sticking up. i'm not hacking them off because my back seats will be needed again from time to time.

the space i'm working with for the actual amp rack is roughly 55W x 13H x 9D.

here's some pics.

that upholstery job to cover the white of the truck looks very good.

you can use the 3 bolts sticking up to secure the rack on to the floor.
you can make a nice enclosure type rack where the amp can be mounted with a plexy glass front panel to view the amp with fans hidden on the side to keep it cool. you can run the fans of off relays hocked to a main power source and kicked on by the remote wire, so the fans kick on at the same time the amp gets power and off when the amp is off, you can also mount all your accessories like power distributor, power cap, if you have one, things of that sort in the rack as well, to keep everything clean looking, organized and safe.

Lil_KB
02-06-2007, 07:28 PM
lol...that is a very sick idea, but like i said, i'd like to keep it simple with basic materials...i don't really want to spend more on this project on fans, etc.

today i started big 2 but its so **** cold here. tomorrow it should be 26 as the high. i got all my wood cut at school today in less than 30 minutes and i got that new gorilla glue with a 1 hour set time. so tomorrow i hope to glue most of my box and then finish the big 2 and drill threw my firewall.

nah, still not installed.

the Mojo 2000d i recieved was blown. i'm about to go ship it out, and he's gonna send another in working condition back. probably won't be hooked up until next week sometime.

i haven't been worried about a system much lately, got too much other **** going on.

but i did recieve my terminals in from Knu today, lol.

Lil_KB
02-20-2007, 02:50 PM

i'm definitely gonna keep the 15's for a while though, then i'll find something under the seat when i'm ready.

0 to 4 awg reducers. i find it odd that an amp this caliber was only made to accept 4 awg...

no offense dude, but if you wanna post pics of your build, theres nothing stopping you from making your own thread. no need to clutter mine.

and gl with getting your amp. i waited a month for my herc from them. every email reply was "itll be in in 1-2 days". they're just feeding you bullshit. i'd ask for a refund immediately.

do what you gotta do man...don't try and come back on me when i'm trying to help you. i've been in your situation, and all indoaudio will continue to do is feed you the "1-2 days" bullshit. and now hercs are discontinued, so i'd love to know where they're getting shipments of bnib ones from.

How does it compare to your old type R 12's? Are these 15's hitting the lows really good.

Is it honestly what you expected?

How's the flex, more than any other setup?

Lil_KB
03-03-2007, 12:07 AM
sorry fellas, just getting in...plenty vids tomorrow for sure.

it hits the lows very well, and it's WAYYYY louder than the 2 12s. it's louder than i expected. i think i finally reached the "too much" point for daily. noticeably louder than the BTL and Mojo. loudest setup i've sat in besides a 153.xx. i think i'm definitely gonna have to get it metered just because. i've heard so many ********* today trying to brag that they've hit 133 or 138 like it's loud....so i need to get a number on this. it's surprisingly loud in the 30 hz range...but like all of my other systems nothing beats the old Jeezy...which peaks at 41 iirc.

i'm definitely gonna have to get a headrest score on this one. :)

a little less vids than i hoped to get...my neighbors were getting pissed...i was in an empty lot about 200 yards from their house. i'll make more when they aren't home. the kids at the end were my little cousins...they were riding their bikes around and wanted to know what was making all that noise. :)

songs used are:

oomp camp - don't make us
mikes jones - what you know about
jeezy - hypnotize
jeezy - thug motivation 101

Nice! Thats some good mirror flex. Looks like that design worked out pretty good. When to you plan to throw some dynamate on that roof?

Make a vid from outside of the truck focusing on the rear of the cab under the back window, this way we can compare it to the other setups.

don't plan on dynamatting it. this truck will probably be sold after i'm out of high school, no reason to dump more money into it now.

and it doesn't flex the rear of the cab as much because i have 35-40 lbs of amp/wood mounted on it.

SHiZNiLTi
03-03-2007, 10:10 PM
Ahh yes thats right, I forgot about that wood amp rack you made for it. Does it feel like alot more air is flowing out of the cab? Hang some paper of a shirt on the window in your next vid. Those 15's are really movin!

a LOT more air moving. you can actually feel it pressurizing up when it's cranked.

i haven't tried a shirt trick or anything yet...i will tomorrow.

edit: there is more flex in other areas though. most roof flex i've had even though a funky pup could flex my roof. this is the only system i've had that could really move my rear view mirror well, and the side mirror flex is better as well.

the window flex is sweet. i didnt get a good vid of it, but it actually made my window go down a little playing "no problems". at like 30 hz it flexes my whole door control switch area like its a twizzler. i'll get it on vid tomorrow.
