That has nothing to do with his question. He's saying you need more port area for four 15" subs. You should probably throw another pair of aeros on there.

Sure is a popular basket now a days. DD9500 series, AQ HDC3s, the AB HDs. All the same basket, and all similar motors, the AQ and AB are look-a-likes. At least the DDs have a slightly different motor assembly.

Outward appearance of motor doesn't really mean much.

And is that pathfinder a 2wd or 4wd. Never seen one that year...that I realized would look good sitting on the ground :D:respekt:

Its a 4X4. Thing is a trooper.


Eventful day today... Got rearended @ a stoplight today after my drug test for my job.

It was the other vehicles fault so we swapped insurance and I got a police report and all. Looks like im going to have to take it to a shop to get an estimate fix figure. Then his Insurance will wrie me a check. The damage isn't bad at all. He was in a newer model tahoe and of course his big plastic bumper had nothingbut a dent and scratches. My back bumper was folded in on half of it... Making my license plate face the ground. So I think I can just pull out and hammer some fixes. And pocket the check. So good day in that sense.



Bad news is I found out today I'm suspended from financial aid to college now. So im gunna take a semester off and raise my GPA with the local university here in Edmond.



So looks like I can make a few bucks off this accident and I start my job @ Target probbaly next week. So things are getting rocky right now... But hopefully in the end it will all work out.

Still planning on getting this setup done soon.


and S_B: were you speaking of lowering the car? lol if so I thought about it... But this thing is a beater it needs to get alot of body work and repaint if I want to make it anythin presentable in that fasion. I think im going to keep it a beater car and SPL machine and leave it @ that. Hopefully a new car is in my future anyways.

I have nothing that will drill a hol big enough for 6 runs of 1/0.... Plus I got a new saw and wanted to use it lol. It cut really nicely... the reason its kinda jagged is because the drilling for the beginings of cuts.

But yea the hole is large. and didn't u know... they make grommets in that shape now ;]

But for real, what are you gonna do to seal that up? :crazy:

You don't want these idiots to criticize you. Most of them have junk and they don't know what they are talking about.
You have top quality equipment and you are doing a nice install. If I may add a minor criticism, I would have doubled the box all the way around.
Best of luck.

Good internal bracing is just as good and better. I have never seen the use for doubling all around unless you doing a 160-170db system

I have not seen them. I've only seen a video of these once. I think it was lilmaniac's or something.


Link me.

Also did you ever run them in the lanes?




Yes stuckinok i want to be flamed lol. It feels pointless to upload all these pics and then no1 says anything... IM DOING THIS FOR YOU GUYS! lol

s'all good tho <3



And yea I was thinking of doubling the box's sides. But I had plans of keeping my back seats originally. Then after i built the box. I realized it would be a ton easier to just get rid of the seats... So now I have the room to double it up, but probably wont as the box sits high as it is. At least the top is doubled.

And I feel as my XYZ brace is very sturdy. I can stand on any sides of the box and there is little to no play in the wood

Dr. Feelgood
08-19-2008, 10:30 PM
With that much power, screwing into 2x4s will sometimes losen. Threaded rods would have been better, but again, I like your set up.

I have no idea on cost... I had some of the stuff from my Havoc build too. But... defintely ALOT of money :crying: But it's soooo worth it when you're done! :greedy:

Several times during the build, during times I was without seats in my car and building materials all over the garage I wanted to just say "you know it's not worth it" and hang up the drill and hit the classifieds.


But I kept on it and I am so glad I did. I love it!


Time log... hmm let's see - I decided I would do this back in March... Started buying gear in April. Building was off and on throughout the entire summer when I had time. I work overnight so I would get off in the mornings then sleep through the day to go back @ night. So finding legit time to build was difficult. But easily 6 months for me (granted im lazy and poor, lol)

I found out the wallet doesn't seem to hurt so bad when you buy all of your gear in a dragged out time period! lol
