Short little build log, didnt do a whole lot. Took out the 18'' nightshade and AQ2200 and put in some new gear. Also just put in some peel and seal stuff for deadner. Lowes didnt have it, so I bought some at home depot but it wasnt the Peel and Seal brand (same thing, 6'' x 25'). A lady at Lowes said some guy just came in there awhile back looking for peel and seal to put in his car! I laughed at that...

- 2 "upgraded" Cadence Daytona 12s
- db Drive pt 2000.1

I got the box from the same guy I got the daytonas from, he threw it in for free. He's a great box builder, apperantly he has record builds or something like that. Not sure on the specs of the box, but it has 45s in the corners and sounds VERY nice. Amp is a beast! I have been beatin' on it and hasn't gotten warm. It also doesn't seem to clip easy. Only thing I didnt like were the dual 4 gauge inputs. I had to trim my 1/0 in the first slots but found some 4 gauge for the second inputs. Adapters are coming soon lol.

I hooked everything up yesterday and was very impressed at how loud and clean it was. Much louder than my 18'' and AQ2200 were, lower, and cleaner. Today I put in all the Peel and Seal stuff, think it was 12.5 sq ft. total. Only had enough to do the back wall and a few strips on the floor under the box. I cant believe at how much cleaner it sounds with the "deadner". This was my first time ever having and installing "deadner", I wish I wouldve done it a long time ago. The Peel and Seal has NO odor at ALL! Don't beleive what people say. Its very adhesive and easy to use. I def. will go back to get more for my doors and double layering.

Next upgrade will be my electrical. I need to upgrade the underhood battery and possibly a bigger alt. Overall the 12s are walking all over the single 18' :D Driveer and passenger seat have PLENTY of room which is a major plus!!!!!!!!

I'm working on vids, I only have my 3mp camera phone to use as of now. 1k to the subs seems like nothing for them, 2k would seem about right for daily. Im getting a decent amount of excursion but definitely not what they can do. For burps I can wire down to .25. Not sure if I want to attempt that until I get another battery but maybe... Box is 35hz by the way.

you probably should have applied some real CLD deadener before mass loading that rear panel w/ that peal and seal stuff.

YEa peel and seal is best for floors. I used it in the trunk floor for my car. Smells like **** for a bit then it's good. It does come away a bit during the hot summers though. Looks like a nice new build. Yea +1 on vids.

Yeah, those daytonas are nice. I like your decision.

Thanks to all. Maybe its the actual peel and seal brand that people are claiming smells, but this stuff doesn't. Its only been a day so we'll see how it turns out.

Nice stuff, you mustve been doing something wrong with the nightshade. Id put it against those any day of the week.

I think teh 18 was just way too big for a single cab truck. The 2 12s almost have the same amount of cone area as an 18, so Im not sure why its louder.

If the lowest I go down to is mid to upper 12v at idle with it cranked, is it okay to turn the gain up?

Wow you went from an 18 nightshade and AQ to cadence? I am very surprised at that. Did you not like your previous setup?

Bobby322

18 was too big. Just wanted to try something different. You act like cadence is bad? Just not a nug hugger brand on the forums.

Think I may just run 1 of the daytonas because the current box 3 cubes and wayyy too small for both. They need about 2.5 each, so I may whip up a new box and see how it sounds on just one at .5 ohm. I completely deadened the passenger door, still have the driver door to do.

There is no need to troll, you know what he means, may not be completely deadened but its definitely an improvement.

have fun with the build dude, in it for the vids.

Thanks. I've got plenty of vids but my windows movie maker keeps crashing. I just took the box out, plan on going with 2 10s and just changing the baffle on the box since it fits so well. Maybe i can just get them reconed to 10s? Ill upload amp gut pics later
