the subs are SA12s and the amp is a SAZ1500d. and i must say i LOVE these woofers they get hella loud and sound amazing doing so! but enough of the talk lol and onto the pics


saz1500 sexyness ;)


decided to felt the box all black and do gray trim to match the interior of my truck!


SA12's sexyness ;)


a lil kameleon paint goodness (changes 3 diff colors) black, red, and blue, there are diff hints of other colors also when sun hits it at diff angles but those are the 3 main colors!

Interesting terminals on the amp, :D

But, install looks hella clean, I like it alot. Congrats.

Lolz on the power/ground terminals. But the rest looks nice. I would have done nut and bolt terminals comin out of the box but hey it's personal pref. I like the ports rattle can color change? And yea stickers only advertise what u have

03-06-2010, 06:05 PM
looks nice...post some vids!
so what's the point of the terminals on the power and ground? for added runs of wire in the future or something? cuz the wire you have should fit in the terminals right?? looks kinda tacky..would make since if it were 4 gauge terminals and using 1/0 wire....

03-06-2010, 06:15 PM
thanks guys! i love how it turned out, as far as the ports go no its not a rattle can, my uncle is a painter at a body shop, and he hooked me up. as far as the terminals go yea they would fit in the inputs of the amp with out em, but this makes it easier to add more runs later like already said. and its just something i like doing. and i contimplated on the doing nut and bolt speaker wire terminals also, how eva just neva got round to it. will prolly be adding those later! but again thanks and im very happy how it turned out!

oh and specs are 4.2cubes before all displacment tuned to 37hz.

03-06-2010, 07:00 PM
why do that to the ports and use a countersunk screw? you new some panheads

03-06-2010, 07:15 PM
the screws arent counters sunk on the ports. they are a polished aluminum looking pan head screw.

03-06-2010, 07:43 PM
Looks nice and clean. I like.

03-06-2010, 07:45 PM
Not bad. Simple yet effective. Personally if it were me I would be building an MDF cover for the front of that box so you can cover all that wire.
but if you are going to leave it like that...maybe get some black tubing at walmart and make it look even nicer...

Those weird *** terminals look tacky as hell, might hurt the voltage some. Other than that the build looks great man, i love the little rangers. Im itching to get one of the sundown 1500s too but cant afford it right now :(

03-06-2010, 09:07 PM
it dont hurt the voltage none, i drop a whole .7v full tilt! im not the only one that uses those, i got the idea from randy aka Assman on SMD forums, and i no a lot of ppl that use em on there too. there niice when it comes time to have more than 1 run on 1/0 wire. which i will have in the near future. its coverd up by the seat neways. i do plan on covering the wires, just still debating on how i want to that. but for the most part this is finishd.

03-07-2010, 09:24 PM
Hey on those terminals what exactly are those? just threaded bars? Thats genious and ive never seen that before. nice build too man. I like the ports and never thought of painting ports before.

I like it.

Also, to hide the wires. Just make an mdf baffle that covers them that will show the Sundown amp as flush.

So i'm guessing a false floor type of thing except vertical. Probably will only take about 4 inches including mdf and carpet. Plus the final look will show 0 wiring and only the face plate of the amp.

Just an idea.

Once again, nice build. And I like the ports. Hope you tint those windows so not just anyone will see those things shining in the sun haha.

thanks guys! yea i am debating on doing a panel to cover everything and flush the amp. the windows on the truck are tinted (20%) all the way round, how eva it is not as dark as id like so i will be doing a layer of 5% over the 20% here sometime in the future.

Pm me mang.....we need to do some talking since you too are a ranger owner. I currently have 1 15" DC LVL4 in mine on a SAz-1000d and am contemplating going to 2 SA12s....PM ME.

Very nice setup. I had the same exact setup in my BMW for awhile.

03-08-2010, 04:29 PM

Very, very nice but you don't need anymore runs for 1500 watts. It'll be a waste of time and money but to each his own. Best of luck.
