As like the rest of us I change my mind constantly on what I want in my truck, so for now I decided to go a different route and actually stick with it this time lol.

These would DD SW6.5's, I have 2 and 2 more on the way as soon as my subs sell or tax returns come in.

How would these do free air in a door panel?

Goindef154
02-20-2012, 05:27 PM
From what I've read (no personal experience) not very well. I've heard of guys with a lot of tuning getting them to sound "good" but if you really want them to shine then you need to build a small enclosure for them in the door panel out of fiberglass or something. That's completely what I've gathered, someone can chime in if they know different, they usually do ;).

because if you look at post 4 the second pic you can see the foam from the packing shifted and was pushing the surround down the whole time.. hopefully if returns to normal

wrong.. you can clearly see its warped from the being pushed in by the packing material..

The 2 get decent loud on 400 a piece. They do retail around $200, I got them for a little better ;)

He's right, it's from the shipping box, should go back to normal soon.

Thanks man, I just wanted to try something new and different, gonna head to CA next month for finals, not gonna compete obviously but I might get it metered just to see what they do.

Same here, about $199 from DD and I got them a little cheaper than that.

They're stacked little things lol, That's the plan, need a new amp first though probably around 1500 watts. I ran some 1508's a while back and man those things got loud too, I'm really excited to order 2 more of these things in the next couple weeks and see what they do.

For sure man, anything can be done :). That's a lot of power, wish he would've made a vid.

Thanks man, they're definitely beefy. They retail around $199 from DD and I'm gonna send about 400 to each.

Yeah definitely dropping a little, the subs are the most expensive though, everything else I've been able to budget my way through. Yeah buddy! Can't wait to use that thing for sure.

Goindef154
02-23-2012, 10:10 PM
Just a little review of the 2 subs so far, both getting around 400 rms tuned to about 35hz. The first couple days I didn;t really like the sound of them but I knew DD was notorious for having to break in, much like other brands I'm sure, the last few days they have loosened up and are playing much lower and with more excursion. What's funny is I seem to hear more bass for when I'm listening to rock or country, the first few days there wasn't much coming out but now that they're loosening up they seem to be sounding better and better.

Ordered some ED 6.5's and trying to find some deadener for my price range, hopefully tax returns come in soon so I can upgrade the amps. I like the amps I have now actually, both clean sounding just kind of want matching and a little more power for when I get all 4 woofer

Does anyone have the true specs on the DDs? I really am looking at trying 4 of them in a bandpass, but cant get true specs to see what they would work in. Ive had 4th orders, but I think a lot of the DD line when done bandpass ends up in a 6th order.

What's the net air space per chamber if u don't mind me asking. I'm contemplating the same setup and I have 1 cube a chamber ported to 30hz and I'm trying to decide if I want to stuff an sd10 in each or maybe a setup like this

Goindef154
03-14-2012, 02:34 AM
That's about what I have, a little less than a cube net, per chamber, my port needs to be a little bigger but it sounds good for now. I would use 10's or 8's and maybe I will eventually, I like the way these are sounding now though. I wasn't too sure how I was going to like them after just having the 2, they sounded good and impressive but the other 2 I added today just took it to a whole new level.
