well i traded my 2 dd 1508's and my matching PA amps to oxsign for his pair of 18" soundsplinters

so now my plan is to do about 6-8 cubes after all displacement, tipple baffle (2 baffles for strength and one for flush mount), a **** load of bracing, and resined all on the inside (no flexing for me =]) port tuned between 26-30 hz and amp is undecided

i contacted SPY about his 20.1, but idk if he has it yet

ox said he shipped them out a noon today so hopefully ill be getting them by wed or thurs =]

pics soon to come =]

SS recommends 5cubes minimum for a ported box, so I'd try and find more room if you can...

Even though its been mention several times, I would seriously consider more room.

When I was considering them, Mike at Soundsplinter recommend 5 cub ported at a min. That would be a good size for each of them sealed however...

MOAR cubes! i wouldn't put them in any less than 10 net!!! I had one in 5.6 @ 30hz and I would of liked to have had a bigger box.

08-10-2008, 12:07 PM
so would one ported 6 at 32 hz on 1500 rms or 2 sealed 8 cubes w/ 3000 rms?

oxsign
08-10-2008, 12:41 PM
The 6-7cubes sealed would make them low end monsters. Even with 1500 going to both of them. I had them in a 15cubes wall tuned to 30hz. Shook the $hit out the the poor blazer, lol. She's still trembling, lol. 6-7 cubes each tuned to 28-30 will be very nice if you can spare that much room..

08-11-2008, 05:42 PM

ill prolly just do 8 cubes saeld w/ 2500 rms to the pair =]

thats really all i got for now

ill take bettar ones later

thge car is really on its last leg to be honest, still runs, just like ****

failed a compression test, turbo ius fvcked, AWD is gone, now FWD, and leaked oil like a civ

literally, a quart a day =]

but i love her, and im not letting her go w/o a fight

oh yeah not only does it leak oil, but burns it, looks like im doing a burnout when i accelerate =]

snoopysnooper
08-11-2008, 07:46 PM
and i palan on using a niche 3000d (about 2500 rms at 1 ohm, but they say 3150 at 13v at 1 ohm, but idk)

MikeyB
08-11-2008, 08:40 PM
Dude wtf? lol

Ummmm.......take the money you have invested into the audio system of the car, and invest it into the car itself.....

What happens when it breaks down on you? Gonna Fred Flintstone it and bump?

Seriously though....those are words of advice. I would hate to see you put a bunch of money into the stereo just to see the car take a ****.

that was as it is.. it was about 2 weeks ago lol

im going to takw hella pics in a few days

and as for fixing her, the AWD is fixed, well it is FWD now only because AWD to fix was 4k and fwd was 2..

the turbo, not worth it, it runs, they want 1800 to fix the turbo

the compression, it pretty much needs a new head, pistons, cams etc, like i saidm it runs, just low on power..

im am however going to fix the oil leaks, they are the cheapest and is making the car run the shittest.. the oil cap is like 50 bucks, the valve cover seal is like 75 (300 installed) and to fix the burning of the oil i think it just needs a cleaning and a flush

considering i just dropped 400 last week into brakes, i think ill fix it

like i said, just not the turbo cause its not worth it, lol

sorry for the rant

my gf was reading along as i typed and said im a babbler

If its burning oil the piston rings are probably letting oil by

yeah, makes snece, it fail a compression test last year, so i wouldnt be surprised..

as long as it drives okay with no major probs, im happy i guess lol

If the parts matched i could possibly part you out some stuff really cheap but im not sure if they would match

snoopysnooper
08-11-2008, 11:19 PM
yeah dude, i freaking love this car to death, i am def getting another v70 turbo wagon when this one dies..

(knock on wood, **hopefully not soon**)
i love it, i was seriously considering just dishing out 1800 and getting a turbo, and WTH, upgrade the bish w/ a FMIC and a turboxs differental BOV =]

haha

08-11-2008, 11:20 PM

I looked at those prices you posted. Get onto volvospeed.com and talk to the guys on the forum. they'll help you with attaining not only a replacement turbo but a larger turbo like a 19t for your OLO for that price. Tell them Jamaica2G sent you hahaha. I had a 98 S70 T5 and a 1993 940 Turbo wagon.
