Have been planning this for a lil while now. Being busy with school and what not, it has been a long time coming. I finally started the other day though.:D

Just a heads up: Being in college full time, with a ton of papers coming up soon, this will not be a fast build. Just gonna work on it when I can between class, gf, and other things until its done.

What's going in:
4 DP21"s
4 SAZ-3000d's (new heat sinks)
Maxx-Link
200+ ft. Tsunami Competition 1/0 (5+ 5- runs back)
9 Deka 9a31's (1 up front, 8 in back)
1 DC Power 270 amp alt (for now)
4th order designed by iamamp3pimp
Other misc. things
All in an '03 Expedition XLT

Big thanks to Robin for the design. Since this will be my first big 4th (2nd ever), I'm glad he could help me out with it.

Pics uploading.

Crimping my old 1/0 for redoing my big 3.

I love my new crimpers so much that I decided to hack saw a terminal in half to see how it looks (this one was actually not a very good one compared to my new ring terminals and after having some experience). Ended up hitting my thumb and slicing half way up my thumb nail lol...And sorry, the pic's crappy. But it looks like a solid chunk of copper that's fused together. Hydrolic crimpers ftw.

Test fit for the buss bars on the back battery bank. I kinda just wanted to see how they looked back there too. They will be in a box with a cover when finished.

upgrading suspension?

Waiting to see. With all the batteries back there it's taking it like a champ. There has been maybe a 1/4" sag, and I'm not even exaggerating lol. I think the rear is beefed up a lil for towing heavy trailers. I was gonna use it to tow my race trailer.

That's all my progress up to today. Hopefully I'll run a couple more runs back tomorrow depending on when we get back from on the boat.

try to put a piece of tint over your volt meter if you think it is too bright. That could help. whats the worst that can happen ;)


also nice build thus far. I was not expecting you to actually have all the gear. I figured this was going to be another dream build log but you are actually accomplishing this so mad props to you ;)

Maybe I'll have to try that. I still may have to cover it though, I like to drive with it as dark as can be. The light on the Sundown gain know was too much for me, so I taped over it lol.

And thanks, some of it is from my last setup. I won't start a log unless I have all of the major components. I still need a fair amount of fuse holders though.

Haven't been on here in a while, been really busy doing papers.

But I was out working in the car and decided to take the door panels off to see how much more room it would give me. Well it gave me a ton more room. So I'm gonna change things up a lil. Gonna go with a flat wall ported in the center, show off the subs a lil lol. I'm putting the finishing touches on the design now.

I'll probably start a new thread when I do it because the title would now make no sense, and there is a chance that it will be dead for a while because I still have one more big term paper due at the beginning of May.

HighTQCummins
04-20-2010, 02:34 PM
so the 4th order isn't happening? man, I would have just stayed w/ the 4th, you have enough port area for people to glance back and see some 21" monsters, 4 21DP's in a 4th order would have been nutz

rmzsuzuki89
04-20-2010, 02:39 PM
I'm still in the design phase just playing with a couple ideas. 4th's, ported, I was even looking at a 6th for a couple seconds, but kinda threw that idea out lol. I'm liking the look of the ported so far.

rmzsuzuki89
04-21-2010, 01:17 AM

Anyway you can do port on drivers side? Game over if so....

rmzsuzuki89
04-23-2010, 01:32 AM
I can, but then the port has to do a few funky bends. It's just a daily/demo and will probably only see a meter when I get curious lol. It has been refined a little since that pic though.

rmzsuzuki89
04-23-2010, 01:32 AM
Here are some pics of what the wall will/may look like. I'm still tweaking the inside a lil with 45*s and whatnot.

http://i42.tinypic.com/53u7g3.jpg

May do the port bracing a little differently, I just don't know if that will be enough lol. I'll probably move that one down and do another one as well.
http://i42.tinypic.com/na4z.jpg

The sides that look to be hollow will have 2x4's in them. It will be understood better when the box build starts.

There are a couple reasons I decided to go this route instead of the 4th. I feel that I can make this a lot stronger since it gives me more room to work with bracing and such. Also, it was what I had originally wanted to do, but didn't have the room until I took the door panels off.

It was also a lot of fun to design. I have been doing it little by little when I get sick of working on my last paper for school lol.

I wouldn't suggest mounting the fuses to MDF under the hood, it's no fun when MDF gets wet.

i was going to say this too.

Go buy a small sheet of plexi. Imo it will look pretty clean with it. Im trying to think of a way to do it with my car actually

That's a good idea. I was thinking about using any extra piece of melamine I have left over when I finish with my tegu enclosure.

that would work well also

nice build by the way. I LOVE all of the runs of wire :D I cannot wait to install my 2 runs of 1/0 hyperflex now even though its going to look meager compared to your 10 runs :uhoh:

Can't wait to see the build of this. You're definitely better off doing the ported instead of the bandpass.

i still say BP just for wow factor. But u said its just a demo/DGP so ported is probably better for what you want it to do

Sorry guys, a lot of **** piled up at the end of the semester with finals and term papers. That is all out of the way now so I can start back to work.

Since this is no longer a bp, I'm gonna start from the beginning with a new thread, including today's work haha.
