They are, in fact, optimized for 1500 watts each.

Have several guys in the low 150s on music with a pair of the 15s and 1500 each :)

well i sealed up the hole and i gaind .2 dbs it feels louder cause it actualy hurts to sit in it now. still have to seal off the rest of the wall cause i know im loosing alot of dbbbsssonly doing a 149.8 to music

path2spl
06-08-2008, 11:27 AM
the subs have awesome build quality theres extra glue on some parts to insure they wont come apart

bigbangtheory
06-08-2008, 12:09 PM
Your only doing a 149.8? I thought for sure you would be in the mid 150's off music.

I imagine sealing it up completely will help, but can't see it gaing 4-5dbs. What altenator you running?

sundownz
06-08-2008, 01:10 PM
You'll gain alot sealing it up I'm sure - I have guys in the 150s with just two of the 15s.

path2spl
06-08-2008, 03:35 PM
i have a 200 amp alt. im pretty upset about the score as well i was doing 152s to music with just 2 18s. so im gonna have to see whats going on

80INCHES
06-08-2008, 06:59 PM
well once we get it dialed in and sealed up i think we will be where we want to be....i got a few things in mind that should without a doubt raise his score....but if i get off work early 2morrow i will help dialing it in to see where we at...

Agreed, we were both louder out of our trunks w/ 1 15...

With a proper design it will shine, until then i wouldn't get too excited.

I would like to see what these NS are capable of. :)

NO disrespect but I would have to see it. maybe outlaw. But low 150's to a pair of 15's on music.... Maybe I suppose. But doubt several

Well figure mid prob would be 154 to 156. To music so 156 to 158 legal?? With a daily tuned box with that power. There again doubtful to me off 4 15's and that power with a daily box. Now if you get into special box designs etc . Of course! live wire was doing 163's off about 15kw.

eh with current design I could see 50-51 not mid 50's, didn't notice the mid in your post. With a proper wall I could see it doing mid 150's on music.

well like i said right now if he wanted to bass race in the 149'9 class he definitly can...but the goal is to be at 153 atleast...on music...and with wat i have in mind i think we can do it....spl is test test test...but than again this is not a spl box its a daily box that sounds really good...

80

Yeah and I agree. And I hope it does very well for you. But you are correct. SPL is test test test. If you keep it a daily box and current design 153 may not happen. One thing people forget. 153 is over a 160 on an old lab. Musical that is INSANE

i beg to differ ....he's doing a 149'9 without any tuning and the front is not sealed from the back...and the gains are not 100% correct....so once we do the little things..... that should put us right where we need to be....i have other tricks up my sleeve that will give another db ;)

Well there is always room for improvement.

Not to start a bickering argument but a similar car w/ 4x 15's NO WALL would play music over 155+ and peaked stupid low @ like 36hz or something like that?. A wall with that equipment SHOULD play music nothing lower then a 155+ @ your given note.

I was able to do 153's with 2- 15" RE MT's and 2 SD 3KWs so it is possible.

Also was able to do 150's with 1 15" APX and 2 SD 1500D's

Yea and I for sure hope you do. But sometimes people forget how hard a 153 is. It sounds like such a low number when they hear about old lab scores and audio control scores. So you would have to be doing over a 160 to music on the old lab which is insane.

Yeah about 1 to 1.5 db. Remember that suv's typically are only about 2 to 2.5 db down from walls. And a wall from the back prob is only 1 to 1.5 db down from a wall. I am not dogging it at all. Still impressive score. i think you may be looking for more than what is there

path2spl
06-10-2008, 05:53 AM

audioarsonal
06-10-2008, 05:14 PM
Its all in the box.I think if you tune it at about 40 and peak in the 50's you can get low to mid 50's from back there.Are your rear seats folded down or left up?

path2spl
06-10-2008, 05:43 PM
its tuned at 40 ish maybe a lil less. my seats fold up and i fold them down when i play it

pd8731
06-10-2008, 06:20 PM
Something doesn't seem right. I would check your settings on your CD player, amps, and such. Also, how are you dropping to 10 volts with only 4 1.5ks and having 4 HC2400s. I have a Crunch GP3000D-Pro on my 200 amp alt and stock batt and I drop to about 12.5 volts. I can't see how you drop that low.

path2spl
06-10-2008, 06:25 PM
cause my alt wasnt charging my batteries. i only have 3 hc2400s. nothings set on my amp yet i havet had a chance

OK.Sounds like your on the right track.Just keep messing with little things now and you should get it.Great build.:D
I also recently did a wall with 4 15's except mine is slightly behind the b-pilar.Tuned about the same so I can imagine what it sounds like.
