was talking with a friend, i dont know what Gmonks plans are exactly but if i was spending that much money on a build id match my batteries and make a nice battery rack and it also looks like alot of room wasted in between there

If I was spending that much money, I would hit more than 152 with 4 18s on more than 12k in a ******* WALL!

eh stuff happens when your not familiar with the equipment i guess. from my understanding that last build wasnt built really for numbers ever it just moved alot of air and thats it. i dont even know what hz he was peaking at really but i guess in 2010 when it might be done we'll see a finished product and be able to go from there

Numbers? Air mover? From my understanding it didn't do either. That's what happens when you have tons of money but no intelligence.

galacticmonkey
06-20-2008, 06:51 PM
It did move some air... It would do a huge hair trick with both doors wide open on alot of low bass music.

It didnt bassrace great because that was the first time it saw a meter. Didnt know peak note, had never even heard the song before I started the run, and my voltage was wayyy down from playing it for people. I was blasting the heck out of it for a good while, subs were real hot and voltage was real low when the run started.

The song had a note that was like 43-45hz... That was wayyy too high. Im guessing it peaked around 30-35hz. Thats where it was loudest to the ear, but I figured it would meter better a little higher. Guess not. The heat was killing everyone that day. 120 degrees on the blacktop parking lot. Even Jethro Eason could only do a 155-156 in Bassrace, when his van easily does a 158.x. If I was charged, used the right song, and the temperature was better, the score would have been way up. I know thats just a bunch of excuses, but take it for what it was worth. I wouldnt be surprised if it would Bassrace a 154-155 on a good day with the right conditions.

The entire setup was pretty much doomed from the start... Those subs just couldnt handle that much power at that ohm load in that box. Never fried a coil, but I was breaking tinsels all the time. Just wayyyy too much current.

Anyway, the new setup will be great. Will only be seeing about 750rms @ 1ohm a sub, so nothing will be breaking. Will be able to actually play it without worrying about breaking stuff, so thats always nice. Alot of people around here have seen it and say it should be retarded loud. Jethro swung by and checked it out and I guess he was saying that it should be absolutely brutal. And I guess Kicker heard about it from some people around here, and called up whining that I wasnt running Kicker amps in it haha.

The batteries dont look the same... 1/2 are blue, and 1/2 are black. So? Its the same battery, both HC2400s, just different casings. And its not as much as you would think. I got them straight from Kinetik for like $130 or so each shipped, brand new. Now Kinetik competitor pricing is just rediculous. Its double that.

The batteries will be covered anyway, and you wont see them. They are just temporary as well. The amprack is done. Amps mounted, wires ran, speaker wires ran, box finished, etc. Just need a trim pannel on the front of the box and we need subs to install. UPS ****ed the subs up bad, and they were returned to the warehouse before they even got here... Its being taken care of though. Just waiting for the subs to get here and we can wire it up and play it.

And pd, why you being such a douchebag? You used to always message me on AIM, I thought we were cool?

So your system could burp a 150.1 according to your sig. My last non walled system could do at that at 38hz with 3,800rms, tuned to 25hz. So I had less power, a lower tuned box, a bigger car, higher score, and a lower peak note. Your point is?

The 152 wasnt a burp, thats a 30 second AVERAGE. So no, your ghetto Audiopipe system isnt as loud as my non walled system, much less the wall.


And how am I a mommy/daddy boy? I live at their house for now, but worked a full time job and went to school full time, just like everyone else to pay for my stuff.

So memphis flex, lets see a hair trick then. Not a window cracked, roll them both all the way down and record it. If its just as loud, lets see it.

Its my car. I payed for all the equipment. I did the parts that I could of the build. So it is my system.

It can play a 150.1 on a good day on a test tone. Good for you. I was that loud 2 years ago.

When you have a system louder than mine, send me a PM and Ill make a thread and we can have the entire lounge watch. Until then, Im still louder than you, Mr. Gorilla.

Honestly, I can't stand you as you think your **** don't stink and have proved it over and over on these boards. I just want to say, hopefully you don't fawk up all the equipment that is going in that van. If you do, don't post it, because you know what will be waiting for you.

Also I respect people more that do their own installs and actually know how to take care of their ****.

galacticmonkey
06-21-2008, 02:28 PM
Its impressive when people build their own systems... I can build or installs just about anything, but for me to do this build all by myself, at my pace, for the amount of time I have to work on it, it would probably never get done. And if it did, it would be most likely months and months of construction. Even then, it still wouldnt look as good as its going to look, because I just cant do trimwork and fiberglass like he can.

He does some real nice work, I can post pics of some of the cars he has done if anyone wanted to see. I know I cant build anything that looks half as good, so why bother?

Also, this is an Ascendant demo car, and he is an Ascendant dealer. So why not let him make it all pretty so when its being showed off, people like it more? Hopefully next year Id like to have it in the Ascendant booth in Daytona, so its definately going to get seen. In that case, ugly isnt an option.

1) I ran 4 BTLs.
2) I ran my amps wayyy too low.
3) I kept breaking tinsels.
4) I got tired of it and ripped it out to go bigger.
5) Everyone flamed me.

This is basically all done now. UPS fawked up the order horribly and it was sent back to Scott before it even got here. So as soon as thats taken care of, it will be playing. Box is finished, whole back is finished, amps wired up, all wires ran, even the speaker wire is run through the box. Just a couple little cosmetic things need to be finished up. Besides that, just waiting on the subs to get here. Ready to wire them up and play it.

Oh snapz thats a big PORT.

galacticmonkey

double that. try 24 15"s sealed.

Its not sealed. Its a 4th order.

So yeah, 24 15s in a bandpass, with 6 Sundown 3000Ds. Should be loud. Im 6'5 220 and if I put a stool in the ported chamber, I can sit in it. Not touching the sides or roof. At one point there were 3 people in there and it wasnt even cramped. Loading subs is going to be so easy compared to my last box. With the BTLs I had to take out a seat, have Lil Jon do a headstand in the clam while holding the subs with his feet, lean in on my back and hold the sub up as well, and have Big Mike screw it in.

This will be easy because you can just grab a sub, walk through the port, and mount the sub. You can actually walk around inside there. Last thing it needs is more bracing. Its all 1.5" thick inside, all resined and in some parts even glassed. Most places have 1.5" thick MDF, 2x4s, and then the 2x4s are braced by more MDF and sometimes thats even braced by more 2x4s. This box couldnt not be more solid. Theres like 1" rod going through the box, holding the port on. Its like a fawkin bomb shelter.

Keep in mind, its basically all done now. These are old pics. Just waiting on subs.

Just got home... Was down at the shop from about 11:45am-9pm. It was makin some noise... My camera doesnt work 1/2 the time and I forgot it anyway, so no videos yet.

Theres a problem with one of the amps going into protect when I really get on it, just gotta figure out whats causing that. Havent tried anything with low notes yet, but up at the higher notes, like 45 and up it rattles your teeth. So just gotta figure out whats making that one amp freak out and Ill be in business. Hopefully we can get it taken care of tomorrow so I can make the show Sunday. We'll see what happens though, cant promise anything.

So as soon as we get the mids/highs in and get the amp problem solved, I think Ill be real happy with it. When its sealed up it just about rips the doors off the hinges. Gotta get the problem fixed before I can really crank it and play some music though. When you're putting 24 subs, 6 huge amps, 10 batteries, tons of wire, etc in a car, something is bound to go wrong. Its how it works though... All big systems go through that. My last one took a good bit of tweaking before it started playing right. Johnnys setups with the 18 15s would always freak out before he took a solid day just troubleshooting and tweaking the amps and settings.

We'll see though. Just gotta figure out the amp thing and we're in business. If we can get the amp taken care of, get the front trim pannel on, the mids/highs wired up, it will be totally done. Then when I got everything fully finished and done playing with it, Ill take new pics and make some videos (if my camera works).

Thats the update for now.

Well still havent gotten all the bugs worked out... There is 1 amp that keeps going into protect on low notes, mainly when the doors are open.

But with the deck just over 1/2, EQ volume on 1/2, and sub level on 1/2, its NASTY. Doors closed and windows down is straight up violent. Even completely sealed up its pretty much just as loud.

Got a line driver put in today to help boost the signal. After we put the line driver in so far the rear view mirror came off instantly, and after a couple short tones the emblems/badge on my passanger door broke off. Its just a nasty amount of pressure it creates. For some reason the subs are barely even moving... Maybe 1/2" excursion at most. Not sure why, gotta figure that out. As it is the pressure makes it pretty hard to even breathe. Even just sitting on the floor of the cabin I reach for the steering wheel or door pannel to grab onto because it makes you so dizzy. You can actually feel it **** you in on the higher notes and push you out on the lower notes.

So far Im real happy with the sound it makes, even though its not even playing correctly yet, and hasnt really been turned up much past half. Batteries are sitting at right around 12v, and havent even installed the alt yet or anything like that. So Im guessing if its as loud as it is now, when everything is completely finished, its going to be rediculous.

your amp has a short my friend. had one do the same exact thing, played until half volume then shut off. you need a new amp

galacticmonkey
06-28-2008, 08:56 PM
But its testing out just fine. The weird thing is when we disconnected that 1 amp and tried playing it, all the others went into protect.

We have tested EVERYTHING with a DMM and it all checks out fine... Amp output voltage, remote voltage, battery voltage, speaker impedances, load at amp, made sure they were all in phase, etc.

JEXTEL
06-29-2008, 10:44 PM

Skip01

My 500.1s did that when i had a blown sub

Would play fine up until about 50% volume than out

galacticmonkey
06-29-2008, 11:07 PM
Now we're thinking it might just be voltage... Dont even have my alt in and havent charged the batteries. So thats the guess for now. Going to put it on a real slow charge and let it soak it up for a while and see how that works.

So If thats the problem, it explains all the "symptoms". I guess that one amp starts clipping out from the voltage (dropping to like 11.2) and shutting off. That would explain that, and also why the subs are barely moving, since if the voltage is sooo low, they wouldnt be getting as much power.

The more we keep playin it, the louder it keeps on getting. As it keeps loosening up, its just getting rediculous. With a full charge its going to be insane. Eventually when I step it up to 16v.... Yeah. :wow:

Well it does build up a SHITload of pressure. I dont see why Bassracing in the high 150s should be a problem... Johnnys van will BR a 157 and mine is quite a bit louder already. Over time when I keep tweaking things and way down the road when I have money to step up to 16v this thing will just keep getting louder.

Even if it doesnt meter worth a ****, it still doesnt change the way it sounds. Its actually hard to even take a breath in there. And keep in mind, we havent turned it up very high yet either.

Well the batteries were sitting so long they wouldnt take a charge... When playing it was dropping to 11v. Even at rest they were only at 12v. We also found that the bussbars were a little curved and werent making the best contact with the batteries, so were going to put some washers on them.

The amprack is off, batteries are out, and they are each individually getting a very slow, deep charge. Basically reviving the batteries back from the dead, because when we tried to charge the entire bank, it just wouldnt take a charge.

So with the bussbars not making very good contact and the batteries at 11-12v, the subs were seeing basically no power. When the battery problem is resolved, and we see some actual voltage, Im guessing it will be quite a bit louder. As it is, the subs were barely even moving. Lets just hope this solves the problem.

I just wish I had the money to go to 16v right now...

Well its all finished... Will be at the DB Drag in Spring Hill thats Sunday the 12th. Only thing left to do is get my alternator on. Hopefully It will be on by the show, because without it I cant really play it too hard.

The batteries were slow charged for 2 days straight and when it was fully charged up it was WAYYYYYYYY louder. Im talking night and day difference. This box with these subs has potention to be a serious Bassraces, just need some battery/amp power behind it. As it is, the amps are doing all they can, but are really limited by my batteries. So Im really not seeing all the power I should be right now but its still pretty loud. It will play loud for ages, and the subs wont even get warm... But the amp will shut off because voltage gets too low. Hopefully that will be solved when the alt goes in. We did find out the problem was battery voltage though, since the amp was just fine when it was charged up.

Did just a few minutes of testing AFTER the batteries were already discharged again (too busy listening when it was charged up :cool:) and it will do a high 156 to low 157 @ 35-40hz range (thats sealed up, mic on dash) until hell freezes over. Subs dont even get warm. When the voltage problem is solved it will be able to do those numbers al day. No reason I wont be able to crank it up that loud, walk away, and just let it play. So thats some rough numbers for now, and they will only go up. When I get a bunch of Powermaster 16vs and some more 16v alts, I dont see why it wont be able to be playing music in the upper 150s, MAYBE even touchin a 160 on music.

Only time will tell though, so we will see how it happens. Ill be at the show, 95% sure I wont be competing though, just playing it for people. Thats only if my alternator is on by then though, it should be.

Ill have finished pics up tomorrow. Ill make a new thread and put a link to it here.

Ill have finished pics up tomorrow. Ill make a new thread and put a link to it here.

Those were just some quick numbers. Toss the mic in the car, play a couple things, and we were done.

When I get the voltage problrm solved, Ill really spend some time dealing with dialing it in, finding my note, doin some Bassrace runs, etc.

Not too worried about numbers though. It does decent numbers now, and they will go way up once I get some real power. Even then, its still just a daily driven ground pounder, so meter is second. Loud to the ear is all I care about, and it sure is.

Its my car. I payed for all the equipment. I did the parts that I could of the build. So it is my system.

It can play a 150.1 on a good day on a test tone. Good for you. I was that loud 2 years ago.

When you have a system louder than mine, send me a PM and Ill make a thread and we can have the entire lounge watch. Until then, Im still louder than you, Mr. Gorilla.

G-monk I have always loved reading about your setups because you put together the type of systems I enjoy. But I will ask you to leave anything related to Gorilla out of your mouth. It is between you and Caylor not Team Gorilla and G-monk. I will leave it at that. Sorry for jumping in on a negative note but I must speak my peace because Team Gorilla effects a lot of people. But understand I was only hear to see your build because I love your builds so please understand I am not trying to start garbage. So more pics please.

Well its all finished... Had to take the line driver out (wasnt mine), so now it has no line driver in it. Mine should be here tomorrow though. Without it, each amp is only seeing like 1.5 volts. :verymad:

Anyway, its still pretty loud, but nowhere near as loud as it will be with the line driver/alternator in. Ill take some pics in a bit, but gotta wait for my camera to charge.

Still need to clean it up, wash it, and get all the saw dust and crap off everything so it looks better. Pretty dirty right now though. Not finished though. Going to have more highs inside the cabin when I get money (obviously), glassed doors, glassed center console, and some extra stuff on the amprack like more speakers and some logos on the black thing.

Its not anywhere near "finished", but its all playing, and it looks pretty good now. As said, still need to put the line driver in and hook up my alternator. Will make a huge difference since right now the batteries sit at like 12v and the voltage drops so low that the amps shut off. Havent gotten the subs even close to hot/stinky yet, and I was beating on it pretty good.

So far:
Ive broken my rear view mirror off.
Driver door cant be locked/unlocked from the outside, and cant be opened from inside.
Both sun visors had the clips break off and are kinda sagging.
Knocked the Chevy emblem off passanger door.

I cant play it with the radio in the dash since it skips horribly, so I gotta hold the CD player in my hand. All the in and out disconnected the wire nut on the remote and ground last night, so at one point I turned it on and had no volume Checked the HU connections and there was my problem. Was a 5 minute fix though, so no big deal. Now they have bigger wire nuts, a zip tie holding wires together before it goes into the wire nut, electrical tape over that, then another ziptie on the tape. Real strong now.

Cleaned up the inside a bit just now as well. Doesnt look as dusty anymore. Now Im out to wash the car since it hasnt been washed in literally months. Its got like a 1" thick layer of dust and water spots on the entire car. Going to look much better now that its all cleaned up.

Might try to get my alternator in tomorrow morning before the show.

Low battery voltage. One amp was gained up higher to put out the same as the others, and because of that, it was always the first to go into protect.

Hasnt been happening since I got my alternator in. Still havent really gotten on it loud since Ive gotten the alternator installed though, havent had any reason to. So Im not really sure if its that much louder.... The amps are seeing 12.9-13v at rest now though. Still *****, but is much better than the 12v they were seeing at rest before. I guess the alt and little charger being on all the time IS doing something.

Leave the charger on them whenever you can. :fyi:

That will keep them at full capacity all the time and will raise the float voltage. I charged my 2 yellowtops for 2 weeks straight before MECA finals and had them sitting around 13.7.

Not a bad score all things considered, though I would have messed around with the loading wall before you made it all nice to try and raise that score up. :) 159.9 bassracer would be sick.

Yep, been leaving them on a slow charge around the clock. Its just they were sitting so long they wont even take a charge above 13v. Im workin on it though, just doin a slow, deep charge tryin to nurse them back to where they should be.

Im sure we could get it to meter better if we played with the port, but I dont wanna change it... It sounds great on music. No matter how it meters, this is my daily driver, so Its gotta sound decent on music. It plays everything, from the lows to the highs, and it does it quite loud, so Im happy.

I mean, the install and van is cool and all, but you could have bought a used van for probably 1/3 of the cost of a new one and kept your expedition for daily/nice driving. That way if you destroy the living hell out of the van, like you are, at least you still have a decent vehicle to drive around.

But that's just imo.

Didnt buy the van brand new. Its used. I got rid of the Expo because it was actually a nice car and I knew stuff would break with a bigger system.

So I got a used van and tossed it all in there.

there is a 2001 express near me going for 4500 so they aren't too much in cost used, I was really surprised at that.. not too bad on the pocket at all.

If you don't mind me asking, what did the van cost?

Oh, and when I said for you to keep the expo, it was under the impression that it would remain relatively stock. :)

You have the big van for a ridiculous stereo, the expo didn't need anything.

Van was $16k. They gave us a good deal on my Expo and a real nice warranty on the van. Its an 06 2500 with vinyl seats and the 4.8L... 35,000 miles on it, runs great. Was in awesome condition when I got it. Actually a real good deal compared to prices of other similar vans around here.

Not bad at all for the condition and mileage.

Too bad you are already breaking stuff. :crap:

does the warranty cover broken windshields and the abuse of bass?

Couldnt even tell ya... It peaks right a little below 40hz. Dont even know what song is best, havent tested that much yet.


Try Lil Jon "What U Gon Do Ft Lil Scrappy" from Crunk Juice. Crazy song with bass around 40 Hz.

Marshall told me about it last year. My number one demo song in the suburban which peaked just below 40 Hz.
