oh no look out you are going to get some serious unwanted attention for that statement


as for fitting that many in an eclipse if you got them
make a tunnel or a wall those are your only real options

for an eclipse NO
i was looking in to one for my tahoe 300amp idle 500amp @2300rpm

thats what the use on ambulances but they are HUGE

GearGuy2001

sell the caps and get batteries

and I dont know anyone that makes a single 500amp alt, do you mean 50 or 3 alts that are like 140?

09-02-2008, 06:52 PM
ya i found it here in boise its similar to the ones they use on our ambulances, i was gonna use 2 seperate ones but was told i couldnt if they didnt put out exact same volts

the ones they use about almost 8 inches diameter theres no you you can fit one under your hood.

not to mention they cost about $3k

if you really have the subs there are plenty of people on here that can help design a box to fit them

u should put 2 in your eclipse with one kicker amp and sell the other amps and 6 subs to me for cheap

bones22

pics would be nice. i cant way to see an alternator for an ambulance shoved under the hood.
considering they dont make any mitsu ambulances has to be pretty custom

09-03-2008, 05:41 PM
the biggest Alt I've seen for eclipses is a 140 amp

And you're telling me, you shoved a 500 AMP ALTERNATOR, along with enough runs of 0 guage to go to 4 capacitors, 2 batteries, 3 kicker zx2500.1 so get to run 8 l7"s some how?

I doubt you could do more then 4 in the eclipse anyway, unless your back seat get removed, but even then, your suspesion is going to be *** riding with even 4 in there!!!!!

I ca'nt wait for fail pics of something catching on fire!

I'd strap the batteries the roof and put the amps under the front seats

09-03-2008, 06:12 PM
Ya i really have subs i just need 2 more kx amps, and if i cant find them i gonna go with all 3 of the zx. But i would really like to find 2 more ksxd 2500.1 so that 1 i dont have to buy 3 amps and 2 so i can match my sx mid range amps. Anyways i do need help with the box. I have already tubed my spare tire well and made corner pieces. I have about 25 cubic feet total, my subs need at max 16 so i do have a lil play.

king ranch
09-03-2008, 06:17 PM
25 cubic feet in a eclipse how in the hell did you figure that and wats the measurements

bsizemore
09-03-2008, 06:20 PM
I dont have measurements on me i am at work but without my back seat, a wall with my spare tire well will leave me with 25 cubic feet

09-03-2008, 06:24 PM
4 of those L7s must be riding up front with you I guess.

king ranch
09-03-2008, 06:30 PM
I dont have measurements on me i am at work but without my back seat, a wall with my spare tire well will leave me with 25 cubic feet

there is no way because there isnt more room in a back of an eclipse than a f150 and there isnt that much room in the back of a truck
unless you are talking bout putting subs in the trunk facing up and making a wall in the back seat with subs forward if so i think it will be louder just with a wall in the back facing you with 4 12's or w/e you can fit in there

bsizemore
09-03-2008, 06:35 PM
Werll i was suprised 2 when i found out there was 25 feet back there but my buddy measured it and calculated it and he is an installer here in town, but anyways, thanks man

Very Interesting...

Personally, thats overkill to me...

4 L7s should be enough, that be loud in such a small *** car.

king ranch
09-03-2008, 06:42 PM
yea i would agree i only have 2 12's l7's on 1500rms ported in a f150 and it gets loud

Na not overkill, i got 4 sets of boston pros to keep the bass in line

king ranch
09-03-2008, 06:44 PM
its overkill as in i dobut u will be able to listen at full tilt without it being too loud for your ears but idk it might not be that loud, but i guarntee you will always get stopped by cops for having it that loud

bsizemore
09-03-2008, 06:46 PM
O ya for sure i got 4 15 l7 in right now and thats loud but, i wanna go bigger, and i liked my 12's better so i going back to them

we had 18cuft in this eclipse when we built it 2 years ago. we didnt use much of the cargo area and i could see another 7 cuft if done correctly. so i suggest you only speak on what you know.
3-SSXXX15's and 1-6500XXX, dual alternators, a few batts, 2x4's, mdf, and a shitload of deadener.

he has gone on to get sponsored by a few companies like Soundstream, Kinetik, a local alternator company, and knukonceptz. he was invited to world finals twice, but the birth of his second kid prevented him from attending.

ok so its clear you troll the net trying to get what you think is some of the best equipment you can buy. then say you have had all of it.
you have 4 15" L7s
now you talk about your 12" cvx's

how bout posting at least a pic of this awsome car that you had several grand worth of custom work done for the alt to fit

nobody is saying thats impossible. 8 12's in there can be done. they may be screaming for more air but yea.
the only mention of the subs was the cubic feet he says he has.

i think the main issue with what hes said is a 500amp alt.
i mention ambulances have them.
right away next post he says thats what its from.

kekekeke

I personally drove to my friends house, who has a 95-96 eclipse, and measured the trunk, and the rear seat area.

His is a more RACE-oriented car but non theless I got 21.6 cubes, gross.

so I don't see 25 cubes? But maybe I missed something

Ok, just so you know...I believe 100% that those subs and amps can fit in the car and work and all is well...but just the way you came in here saying you had a 500 amp alternator and initially having 3 amps for 8 subs...and it all pointed to BS

But if youre going through with this Id certainly like to see the results..it would be crazy.

And some people say i cant fit 2 alts in my saturn...but the truth is, I can most-likely fit 3 :)

So, go for it

4 2500.1's you are going to need some serious batts and at least 1 huge alt.
whatever the biggest you can find if not running 2 that are 200-250amp each
