I'm starting my new build now that I've sold most of my old stuff. I'm going with 3 AQSD208's and a AQ1200D or maybe a Sundown 1500D haven't decided yet. I'm downgrading from 2 15's to these so getting loud pretty loud isn't really a priority, it's mostly for saving space and still having some good tunes. I might upgrade to four one day, but not for now.

It's going in this:

I'm gonna lower it 2" in the front and 3" in the rear in about a month and put some '08 Escalade rims on it.

here's the subs:

I'm gonna take the sticker off the one and get a new gasket for it from DJ when I order my 1200D probly.

Here's the wiring:

I'm gonna re-do the big three in the engine bay and clean things up a bit and make everything match, use wireloom and so forth. Should build the box in about 2-3 weeks and I have a sundown 100.2 coming in on tuesday I believe.

Any and all opinions are welcome.

Is that your "fence"????

I love the wall!

Goindef154
04-05-2008, 03:39 PM
Hahaha yah that's at my parents house in AZ, used to be a chain linked fence, but the lady behind us started complaining whenever my dad had parts in the back(he's a contractor) so we put up the cinder block! lol

Party foul on your neighbor, but + points for your Dad for being such a G.


I would've blew up a chunk of her front yard. =|

I should be ordering the other 4 gauge and 8 gauge wire, ring terminals and other stuff today. And hopefully tomorrow the Sundown 100.2 will show up.

Correction, I received my amp today, thought it was tomorrow, it's got some scratches on it but it works great:

Just ordered my amp, more wiring, terminals, wire reducers and I picked up a second Kinetik 600 the other day for a good price. Should get all this stuff in pretty soon.

Should be pretty fun. I say just put the sub with the logo in the middle....

I was thinking just taking it off, or ordering 2 more.

Goindef154

I'm gonna start work on everything this weekend, probably wont be able to build the box until I go back to AZ on the 5th of May but everything else should be done.

04-17-2008, 11:02 PM
Nice stuff, but got ****, is that Sundown amp been used and abused! Glad it still works though.

04-17-2008, 11:09 PM
nice stuff man...what does the 100.2 do?

Goindef154
04-17-2008, 11:16 PM
Haha yah I got for $140 so I'm not complaining, it works perfectly, I just have it powered on my mids, but I would like to see what one audioque sounds like being pushed by the amp, so I'll probably do some testing when I build my other box too.

Goindef154
04-19-2008, 01:10 AM
I'm goign out and running new wiring in my truck, I'll post pics in a while.

Engine Bay's pretty dirty, I'm gonna have it cleaned pretty soon. but here's what it looked like before: http://i173.photobucket.com/albums/w62/Goindef154/DSC04556.jpg

And here's the wiring in the back, I'm going to be changing the position of everything when I build my sub box, building an amp rack and such, but I though I'd clean up the temporary install first. Before: http://i173.photobucket.com/albums/w62/Goindef154/DSC04557.jpg

After: http://i173.photobucket.com/albums/w62/Goindef154/DSC04558.jpg

And then here's the engine bay afterward, I'm gonna clean it up(dirt) soon and get some smaller wire loom, I ordered too big of a size so I'm gonna get some smaller ones soon.

Get some techflex for hte wires... much much nicer than the loom. They have it at parts-express.com.

Goindef154
04-19-2008, 01:50 PM
Techflex, never heard of it before, I'll check that out, thanks man, you don't happen to have any pics of what it looks like installed do yah?

04-19-2008, 01:51 PM
having that much copper sticking out of my distribution block would make me nervous.

Goindef154
04-19-2008, 01:52 PM
Oh, I just looked, that's some nice stuff, I've seen it before but I forgot all about it, that would look really nice.

Goindef154
04-19-2008, 01:53 PM

It wasn't going anywhere, but yah I didn't like it either, looked extremely tacky, still kinda does now but looks a little better

connersdad19

Goindef154
04-20-2008, 10:46 PM

Goindef154
04-25-2008, 01:34 AM
Didn't get around to the crossovers the other night. But I installed my billet grille, let me know what you think.

And I'll get all my wire loom today too, I'm going out of town for the weekend, but this next week is when the build is going to be completed, I'm stoked!!

connersdad19
05-02-2008, 03:15 PM

Goindef154
05-02-2008, 03:26 PM
Thanks, yah I've already been reading up about it I'm gonna get a hot knife end to put on my soldering gun to cut it with and put some heat shrink on the end.

connersdad19
05-02-2008, 04:04 PM
i hope you have better luck with the heatshrink then i did...i didnt even have chance to shrink it to much and the techflex melted...but gl lol its really nice stuff.

Goindef154
05-03-2008, 03:32 AM

05-11-2008, 12:12 AM
So far I've only heard them for a little bit but man these subs are so impressive, they're getting about 350 watts a piece. They hit the lows surprisingly well and I can't wait to break them in. Tuning is about 38 htz.

I love the wall!

yes we use brick walls in AZ instead of chain link.

Goindef154

Haha, yah we mostly have it because our neighbor was *****ing so my dad put it up and made it a little higher, lol.

05-11-2008, 03:20 PM
I'm already wondering what they would sound like with a 2200D :D

Goindef154
05-12-2008, 03:57 AM
I'm becoming more and more impressed with these subs they are little beasts and the 1200D pushes them perfectly!

05-12-2008, 04:28 AM
what size Techflex did you use?

Goindef154
05-12-2008, 04:53 AM
1/2" it seemed to be work perfectly for everything I had to run.

you ran 0g correct?

Goindef154
05-12-2008, 05:22 AM
yep, 0 gauge, had to feed it on there a few inches at a time but it fit perfectly. It also fit snug on 4 gauge and a tad loose on 8 gauge but still looked great. This stuff is well worth the money and I did tons of research, as I always do, before I bought it :).

You know I haven't made any yet and I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to because my neighbor is a real psycho, but we'll see maybe soon.

Goindef154
05-14-2008, 11:11 PM
Plus I'm at school a lot and I'm usually busy on the weekends, but I'll definitely try to make some, have a lot of people asking about them.

bigbangtheory
05-14-2008, 11:13 PM
Looks fantastic! Betcha it sounds real nice in there.

The only thing I am not sure on is where the battery is. Can you still push the seat all the way back with clearence? I would probably not fit in it anyway, lol! 5-10 250 pounds. :(

Just wondering, but looks good!

Goindef154
05-14-2008, 11:17 PM
Thanks man! Yah it does, it sounds pretty unbelievable, shakes the **** out of everything too, I had 2 3515's before so it's obviously not as loud but definitely pretty loud for 3 8's and 1200 watts. The battery is right behind the driver seat, it's only a kinetik 600 so I can scoot my seat back pretty far and have plenty of leg room, I'm 5 7 so I don't need much :D but my uncles 6' 2" and he fit's just fine surprisingly when he has to borrow it. It's funny because he drives a 100k car and he has to borrow my pickup because he doesn't have a truck lol.

bigbangtheory
05-14-2008, 11:32 PM
Cool man! I also have a 600 in my trunk and know how small it is. I just wasn't sure with the wires sticking out like that if it would hit the wires. I should have been more clear, sorry.

Man, your uncle drives a 100k car! WTF is that?

snfsh79077
05-14-2008, 11:49 PM

Oh cool, yah the wires are the only reason why I can't scoot it back a couple more clicks, but it's not bad at all. He drives a '07 Jaguar XK he's let me drive it around for a couple days at a time sometimes, it's such a ****** car. I'm staying with them while I'm going to school out here so sometimes he let's me take it.

Goindef154
05-22-2008, 03:56 PM
Nice, what did you think of them? I'm not gonna be using them for mudding, just a beefier lookin tire is all I was going for

snfsh79077
05-22-2008, 04:01 PM
I liked them...great tire. I didnt do any hard core mudding just little stuff for fun every now and again.

I like it a lot it never gets warm and it gives these things plenty of power.
