Just bought this car about 2 weeks ago and I'm selling my truck. I'm going light on this setup, for now, and we all know how that can change but for now I'm sticking with 1 1508 and my Orion XTR 1000. I might be purchasing MisterGibbs' HX2 8's on CACO and try those out on this amp, I had some HE2's back in the day and was honestly always impressed by them no matter how much more higher end stuff I've had, so I'm curious what those little things can do and I'm sure some members on here wouldn't be disappointed to see that little test :D. I'll get pics of the car some time this week and I'll be building the box next weekend and installing all the wiring I think, might take me a little bit to find what I need/want.

Sweetness. I'm ordering the wiring now. It's so strange, I don't even know what 4 gauge wiring looks like :D. I'm used to 0 gauge.

Looks like you won't be "goindef" anytime soon. lol...I suppose I'll still be looking forward to this build!

Why you gotta remind me :(. I'll probly just start with this, I just really like having trunk space. For now the most I'll do is 2 8's. still gonna get pretty decent though.

You'll change your mind again....I've gone from loud to SQ builds about 6 times now and I think I've finally figured out that I want my bass more than trunk space (that's what my back seat is for..lol) while still maintaining good sq. I'll be working on 3 Audiopipe 15001D's on 3 RE SE 12's sealed and surprisingly it should leave me with decent space in the back as well as decent spl. I'm surprised you're not going with SA-8's.

I have an 01 as well, and I'm goin ith 1 10" RE SE to save trunk space, my build is going nowhere tough, I can't figure out how to power the **** thing on

Goindef154
04-14-2010, 01:09 AM
I've had E8's and they sounded good and got low for sure, I've just really enjoyed these subs and like how they sound, I've had a lot of different setups and just kinda feel like sticking with these for now.

To the guy with '01. You mean you can't decide on what amp to go with?

I love it so far, only been a couple weeks, there are things that go wrong with them but as long as you take care of it it'll last forever is what I've gathered. Gas is pretty good, gotta keep your foot off the gas though. Very clean looking cars too, pretty easy to work on for the most part.

Update: Ordered my wiring last night also ordering my deck and a spare tire cover that flushes the floor in the trunk. Stuffs starting to come in.

04-14-2010, 10:50 PM
Thanks man, should be fun. Still haven't decided what to do yet, I want to keep my Orion but I need an amp that's gonna give out some decent wattage at 4 ohm for this sub, just gotta look around.

Goindef154
04-14-2010, 11:35 PM
Box for now is gonna be downfiring with 2 ports on each side facing back and a false wall to make it look flush, did a similar box in my cousins lexus and it sounded amazing I thought for one 8 and 200 watts, can't wait to see what mine sounds like.

Nothing really for pics, I ordered a bunch of stuff just haven't got them in yet. I'm going to run the wiring either today some time or tomorrow and hopefully put the box together before 11:30 today. Still looking for a carbon cone DD and a different amp but haven't had a whole lot of luck so far, just gotta keep searching tho :D.

Toward the end and test fitting, fits like a glove, will be perfect when it's carpeted.

Gonna put a false wall up, not sure how I'm gonna design and carpet that just yet. I still want to out this one in and then put in a downfiring one and see what it sounds like.

Platinum yes, only single 4 tho, this will tide me over. May actually even be selling it if I go buy a 10" local.
