Ya, with the (2) 15" SPLC 450's he hit a 147.2, thats with a crappy stock battery under the hood, single run of wire and single d3, great numbers for not haveing any power to back up those subs!

funny you asked, not really trying different freq., but I actually just shortened them up cause the boxes would fit like I measured, just trying to get ready for a show super fast this friday, and had to deal with what I have, so they will get redone and will be tuned the same ;)

Took the van to SVR last weekend, with 10 Brutus subs and one Atomic amplifier, it did a 153.9 burp and I bass raced 149.9, had one perfect run of a 149.9, not too bad for throwing this together in a week and a half, we have another show in Ohio this sunday, should be a good time!

The grill will for sure change, as far as lowering we will see with 22's and all the added weight fromt he stereo where it sits. I am going with a two tone, top will be a bright pearl orange, and the bottom will be a bright pearl blue
