I got gain and bass boost at 1/4 and its slamming already at 0.5 ohm....I can not wait to turn it up and see what it really does..but at 14/35 on the volume...the lows are crazy.....


Thanks for an awesome driver Jacob....Can't wait to break it in a bit, and start hammering on it pretty hard at 0.5ohm..

:veryhapp:

Video coming tomorrow, as its raining right now...

I might hammer on it pretty hard for a video, but even at low volumes, I can slowly start to smell the glue burning off...

Sounds very good though....just hammers the lows...

Yea, I know BB is distortion...but it never goes over 1/4 period....Gain will never get over 1/2.
Sub Pre-out at 5/15...

Videos tomorrow....when its daylight....I just now got the monster in...


As far as production I'm not sure...I know he has to custom build the 18's...this one took about a month total time from order to build to get to me...:veryhapp:

Depends on how my money situation goes...I hope so. I'm probably going to the Fort Worth show sunday as long as I can get away pretty early from my family stuff..;)

I should be able to....Im going to play it tomorrow most of the day on low volumes to try and loosen up the quad spiders..:laugh:


I'm very impressed so far though..

You do it your way, I'll do it mine.. :veryhapp:
I have yet to fry any speakers..

They arent dent's, small scratches when i was test fitting. Nothing major. I had to dremel out the cirlce a bit to make the speaker fit. I cut it a TAD too short. And those dent looking dills, I'm not sure...they are small scratches...don't really bother me though.

Easy Fix...

Is the sq pretty good on that thing? I've read that it sounds pretty good too.

Not so much on this one...:veryhapp:

It's got a longer coil...extra spyder, and thicker tensel leads.. and been modified to take 3K + daily...

But it sounds pretty good at low volumes...too..

Yes...it's a huge F'en thing....I love it!:veryhapp:

How about he sets his gains the way he wants. He's obviously not new to the game, so quit posting what his gains/bass boost etc should be set at.
Looks good, hope you make it to Frisco..Id love to see/hear a Nightshade.
I might make it to Ft. Worth this Sunday..depends on who is going.

Thank you...:D

I have yet to blow a speaker.....I did blow up a few 6.5's when I was bored...:laugh::laugh:

I set my gains at 1/2, bass boost at 1/4 for daily...and when I do burps...gain is at 1/4, and bass boost goes to 0/4. You guys do it your way, and I'll do it mine. :furious: I always keep the sub pre-out on the H/U at 5/15 or less....never more unless I deem it necessary...which most of time I don't.

Right now for the break-in process...I've got gain and bass-boost set back to 0/4 and sub pre-out at 6/15 and its stupid loud...Hell...at 0.5 ohm....I don't think I should turn any of it up...:laugh:


I played it some today on some chopped and screwed low Hz songs...and it gets low...and does it cleanly..:veryhapp:


I'll be at the Fort Worth show I HOPE...Not running though, may demo it a bit...but thats about it....and I'll do my best to go to the Frisco show....money situation is pretty badd right now.. :(

you dont get full output from the sub until the sub level is +15. maybe thats why you need to use bass boost

since you all say im wrong, prove it?

You can get full output with the sub level being on 0, it just depends how you have the rest of your stuff set up(ie: higher gain setting). I have the gains on my amps turned all the way down, but I still get full power out of them. :D

since you all say im wrong, prove it?

Ok to prove it. The gain on your amp is used to match the preout level of your HU. The subwoofer volumn on the deck is used to raise or lower this. If you set the gain correctly with the subwoofer at 0 on the deck then you get the same output as if you set the gain with it at 12

08-08-2008, 09:58 AM
so wouldnt that just mean you have to crank the gain way up if you have it at 0?

Had to buy baskets from other companies to make a limited run of 18s since my baskets aren't in stock yet - so they were shipped a few times.

Because they wanna feel like they know something? :laugh:

Sure, I'll set everything on my amp to 0, as well as H/U at 0/15......And its still loud as ****en junk.:D I still flex everything on the whole **** car. :veryhapp:

you could be missing out on so much by refusing to do something as simple as use a dmm.... and by "sub pre-out" do you mean the subwoofer level control on your HU? If so why not have that at 15? If you don't like loud bass then why buy an 18" nightshade.... it should be a crime to use BB.
