View Full Version : Walling the Jimmy

03-03-2010, 12:52 AM
Im doing 2 18s in a wall in my 99 gmc jimmy. probably wont get the wall built for another week or so but heres the subs i just finished building.

Going to be
2 18s in 11.6 cuft with removable ports. 40hz for comps, 30hz for daily
Clif Designs 4800.1lx
1/0 welding cable(already installed)
250 amp Iraggi alt(already installed)
2 big 125ah batteries in back
XS Power VCM
4 soundstream carbon fiber 6.5 comps
Cadence TXA3004

for the subs I used 2 bravox edx motors, a dual 2 flatwound aluminum coil, 4 medium stiff spiders, 2 nightshade cones and some carbon fiber dustcaps that James (sub2weeker) made for me.



Cadence TXA3004 to run the soundstream comps
Clif Designs 4800.1lx for the subs

heres some pics i took with my phone. once i find my camera, ill get pics of the finished thing and some videos

just test fitting the subs and box. what a pain to get that thing in there. was just .5" too big for my rear opening so i had to put it in at an angle and take my seats out and flip it upright in there


got the sides on and a first layer of resin inside

got it all carpeted and sealed on the sides. still waiting for the resin to dry

pick of the back. put in 2x4s today to add some bracing to the back. was getting some vibrations even with it double baffled and then a third piece of mdf that i mounted the amp to. gonna need to clean up the wiring alittle and figure out where im gonna mount my 4channel amp

still got to put in the comps and cadence amp but its coming along. should finish up this week or next

those are some sweet duscaps!

i like the wall! cant wait to hear it.

Looks nice so far. Bet it will sound good on daily tuned to 30 hz.

03-03-2010, 11:40 AM
should get rediculously low. i didnt make the 2nd port though and this one ended up being tuned to 36hz

03-03-2010, 12:33 PM
Looks good man. Im in for numbers and vids once its done :)

03-03-2010, 12:42 PM
gotta love a wall....looks good so far. How many Sq. inches is the port??

03-06-2010, 12:05 AM
160sqin. it ended up only being 10cuft net volume

finished pic of the wall

and a video. had to use my old crappy camcorder so its not great quality and you cant see the flex real well

so got metered today.

149.5 legal
151.8 in the kick

bad day today for me though. i couldnt get my back batteries to charge at the correct voltage and they were barely at 14v. voltage was droping to about 12.5. when i was testing yesterday, batteries were charging at 14.9v and dropping to 13.8v. should hopefully get a little higher score with the correct voltage.

Very nce build. What number are you hoping to do because at 37hz and 1 amp, that's not bad.

its ok but i have to roll the volume in or else it will protect with my subs wired at .5ohm

Very nce build. What number are you hoping to do because at 37hz and 1 amp, that's not bad.
