Mid/high amp: JBL PX300.4

http://i.imgur.com/YNtEV.jpg

Mids/highs: (2) 6.5" TC Sounds prototype / (2) Selenium ST350

No pictures, doorpods need finished (which I'll likely never do)

Wiring & electrical: All KnuKonceptz Kollosus Flex 1/0, Memphis 4ga, Redtop under the hood, 110aH shitter in the trunk.

No pictures, why would you GAF about this ****?

Plans for the future: Sell current battery & replace with (2) 110aH batteries, build amp rack for my 3 amps, redo the wooden trunk floor, build battery boxes in the trunk, finish door pods (again, unlikely.. but on the to do list), add deadener to roof & doors.. some other small wiring projects here & there.. nothing huge.


-------------------------------------------


Any and all input is always welcome on my builds. IDGAF if it's negative, positive or neutral. Say whatever you want. http://mwcaraudio.net/forum/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif

I've yet to power them up. They replaced the Discus line which was a VERY solid amp. These seem to built cheaper.. plastic mounting feet and cheap materials. I hope the quality isn't too much worse. Gonna clamp them when I get the chance. I'll post the results from my vehicle after I get the new batteries in.

only way you can strap onyx is a maxxlink iirc

J31Rob
01-01-2012, 07:07 PM
The ONYX series isn't strappable.. :fuuu:

My ******* assumed since they replaced the Discus line that they would be.. but they're not. Just gonna gain match the best I can. It's not impossible, people did it for years before amps started using master/slave.

I know I know.. I just know I can skimp $20 if I buy one used. I just talked to Hank & he still has his from 07 when they first came out. I'm just gonna grab it when I go down there tomorrow to finish this. We're gonna throw it all together tomorrow to see how it sounds. Then I'll probably wrap the box, finish the trunk floor, etc. Gonna have to low gain like a mofo though. I need batteries. :ffffuuu:

---

Put in some work today.. realized my amps just aren't gonna work for my situation. Was thinking of running one amp to begin with, but ended up buying two because the price was good. That however was a boner move on my behalf because 4 dual 2s don't wire to each amp @ 1 ohm. I don't know why but I was thinking the woofers were a different configuration. Slapped 'em in on my old MB Quart DSC1500.1 @ 1 ohm for the time being. Box is going to be rebuilt a tad smaller and a new amp (got my eye on a Sundown SAZ2500).

Bought an Atomic AT3000.1 and scrapped the ONX1500.1s. The Atomic HATES the 8v preouts, however. Going to have to find a solution for that. Amp won't even play at high volume..

Box is being rebuilt ASAP, going to try a 2:1 4th order blow through, sealing the trunk off. So don't mine my **** hole throw-together install I've got there. This was for testing only.

Here is a garbage video I was trying to get of the SA10s pulling a box with 6 L brackets off the trunk floor, no luck though. You can tell when the song drops to 25hz though. Frames get all shaky n ****.

Oh and I did a 143dB driver side door open, mic on dash. 141.3 sealed up, mic on dash with the MB Quart DSC1500.1. Never got to test with the 3k as it wasn't working when the meter was here. Will retest this weekend before ripping it all out & doing the 4th order.

Did some work this weekend.. pulled it all out to prep for the new enclosure. Got the body saw out & did some work in the rear deck to fit this new beast of a box. My poor car hates me. I'm getting new suspension in the rear to handle the added weight too. I gained close to 3" just taking it all out so I figure I probably oughta handle that.

A little testing before taking the existing setup out.. this score is w/the 4 SA10s @ 1 ohm on the Atomic 3k in ~5 cubes @ 33hz. Driver door open, mic on the dash.

A little bit of pretty work to be done to the rear deck still.. but it'll happen when the enclosure goes in & I either glass it in or seal it off w/wood & wrap it.

Here is the new box design:

Port will be firing into the cabin of the vehicle & sealed off from the trunk.

Sub cutouts are just a tad too small, didn't think to check that before hand lol. High grit sandpaper or a small runover with a router should do the trick. Gonna wait to put the top on for ease of dropping woofers in. Its not impossible to add/remove them with the top panel on but its just gonna be 100x easier with it off.

Going to try a port with 2x2s first, then gonna play with different size aeroports with a removable front baffle. It'll be interchangable for music/SPL/whatever.

Nothing yet. I've not even started to add the port. Gonna do it with 2x2s first then build a dummy panel on the front with the ability to be pulled on & off with some simple t nuts or wing nuts.. something. Then I can try aeros, different size slots, whatever I want really.

---------- Post added at 07:55 AM ---------- Previous post was at 07:54 AM ----------

Just build baffle after baffle until I get musical, SPL and the lowz SPL.

The panels will literally bolt onto the front panel with different tuning configurations.

Here are the port pieces:
http://i.imgur.com/4ekFq.jpg

One is 45hz tuning, one is 50 something & the other is purely for SPL. I have all the tunings written down at work.. but I'm posting from home.

Don't have the electrical to run 2 amps @ .5 ohm. I wouldn't trust the Onyx series @ .5 to begin with. The Discus, yes. Onyx, no way.

Haven't had much motivation lately. Life has been throwing me some curve balls & I've been having to eat some **** sandwiches recently so audio has been low on the priority list. Here are some minor things I've done recently.

Swapped out the TC Sounds 6.5s for some Memphis MSync 6.5s (I'm going to finish the door pods come spring and yes I know the ST350s are FILTHY):
http://i.imgur.com/uv72o.jpg

http://i.imgur.com/ONlLJ.jpg

Moved the 4 channel into the spare tire well for the time being. Going to build a beauty panel to put over the top of it when I GAF about looks:
http://i.imgur.com/VFeeh.jpg

Added ~160aH to the trunk in form of 2 new batteries. May not be the best batteries, but they were freebies & are better than the one I had in there:
http://i.imgur.com/cApxd.jpg

http://i.imgur.com/wN63c.jpg

Also cleaned up all the wiring in the trunk. Once everything becomes more "permanent" (lolyeahright) the rat's nest will get cleaned up even more:

J31Rob
02-18-2012, 09:40 PM
I'm really battling the idea of scrapping the 4th order if it doesn't perform the way I'd like it to, adding 2 more SA10s (or selling off and buying 8-10 SA8 v2s) and getting a 4k. Put all those in a big *** ported. I'm also wanting to keep it all in the trunk. I don't wanna wall even though my bros keep trying to talk me into it.

J31Rob
02-18-2012, 09:59 PM
Hey no way man!! No take backsies. LOL.

Like I said in that PM I sent you when I got 'em.. they're giving me the motivation to finish my pods. I'm gonna have my panel bro cut me some rings to mount on the busted *** pods for now, then sand it all down & carpet them. Hell, I've been considering redoing the entire door panel in 1/4" MDF or something similar. Then I can put everything right where I want it & carpet it all the same.

edit: I tuned in the amp & headunit today to get those MSyncs really singing too. They sound absolutely amazing on 125wrms, crossed @ >100hz.

J31Rob
02-19-2012, 10:45 PM
Got one of the ports in & playing today. Did a little playing on the Term Lab & got the Flukes out.

My Atomic 3k clamped 1395wrms @ 3.9ohm.. 4x rise. Not terrible.. but still :(

Keep in mind this is my FIRST shot at any port in this box. A lot of testing and tinkering is going to be done here so these numbers are definitely just a starting point. I have already gained from my ported, however.

Legal score @ 32 hz

http://i.imgur.com/Hzo7J.jpg

Mic on the dash, driver door open @ 32 hz

30 second average on music. Take a look at the peak frequency.. 29 hz. Whole 30 seconds was 28-34 hz. Everything above that was car noise. :laugh:

New port, still haven't installed t-nuts. Audibly louder. Sounds even more so amazing down low, even though I'm tuned higher. I think it made a huge difference going external with the porting too.

http://i.imgur.com/OW3sB.jpg

Old one has all the screws in it (6x6x10, made tuning ~45hz), new one is on top (7x7x10, makes tuning ~52 IIRC)

I'm considering reverting back to a simple ported, but going with either 10-16 Sundown E8s or possibly doing 6-8 Sundown SA10s. Might even consider getting some of the new SA8s.

Depends on whether I make Team Sundown when I apply or not.

Yeah right! They get loud bro. They're only getting louder with each new port. Gotta keep in mind.. none of the ports have been geared toward scoring as of yet. Gonna try some aeroports & really tweak it.. hopefully my score pops up. If not, time to add more power.

Nice build... Should get loud once you get it all dialed in! Try some long/big *** aeros and cut them down til it gets loud. :D

I'm considering reverting back to a simple ported, but going with either 10-16 Sundown E8s or possibly doing 6-8 Sundown SA10s. Might even consider getting some of the new SA8s.

Depends on whether I make Team Sundown when I apply or not.



Yeah right! They get loud bro. They're only getting louder with each new port. Gotta keep in mind.. none of the ports have been geared toward scoring as of yet. Gonna try some aeroports & really tweak it.. hopefully my score pops up. If not, time to add more power.

Videos, don't mind me trying to talk over the bass like an idiot in the first video:

More port means more FLEX. pt. 1 - YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6No4Fl3gppo&context=C385f4ebADOEgsToPDskIM7QY1-Crwg5BJMP3LbUND)

It seems like you aren't using big enough ports. What is the opening area of the newest one?

I'm still in the testing phase man. None of these are permanent. I'm just starting small & working my way up. I've got 2 more front panels cut to try out a couple more configurations. I'll likely cut some more & try until I'm happy with the bandwidth/score/sound/etc.

My current port is 7"x7" opening by 8" depth. I can't remember whether it's 8 or 10 actually. The last one was 6x6x10.

Oh yeah, that's the next plan. I've got some 6s I'm going to try first.. then I've also got some 10" thin wall PVC I'm going to flare myself & use for an "SPL" port. The square ports have just been easier since I've got a panel guy that does all my cuts for free.

Well yeah, you can't expect much of a number from 27hz tuning. The thing about my setup is I can change my tuning to WHATEVER I want.. WHENEVER I want.

Wonderful news today. My CD7200mkII took a **** on me. About a week ago I left my car running with the heat on and back out to the headunit being off. I turned off the car & turned it back on.. a small bit of smoke comes out from behind the headunit. I turn off & turn on again, headunit powers back on no issue. I've had no issues until today. I turned the car on, music played for maybe 2 seconds & the headunit starts ROLLING smoke. I pop the faceplate off and it stops smoking. It no longer works.

Got a hold of United Radio, shipping it out to be repaired (gonna fix the CD player while I'm at it) and should have it back next week some time.

:(
