That's a awesome looking box. I just got my 2 XFL 15 on Friday and in the process of designing a box for my 2007 Avalanche. I have never heard American Bass XFL subs but only heard great things about them. Enjoy, I'm jealous I bet it sounds amazing.

I don't think that 3 Hz is gonna make a noticeable difference unless ur chasing tenths on the meter

And do big 3. Well do big 3 first and test voltage drop while playing full tilt for a few. If still drops dramatically get the batt. I recommend audiotechnix 0/1 ofc for wire

Down here I have NAPA where I got my terminals. But any real parts supplier, (not AutoZone, advance auto, etc) should have 1/0 terminals.. Same with you 12 gauge..
looks nasty bro.. Glad it turned out as good as it did! :)

Yea I thought so.. I never took the time to look them up, but anything that sounds decent for $60 a pair + a box is a good deal. You can sell em on CL for more than that even if theyre junk. Lol
Btw I pm'ed you for final details on your box I believe. :)

The face is painted(obviously), and then my brother-in-law is a graphic designer so I had him cutout vinyl to lay on there.

Nice work man. The lettering really sets the box off!
So, the vinyl has adhesive on the back, or how do you secure it?

Yes sir, my brother in law does outstanding work. I never realized how much one change in font style makes a difference! Lol
By definition, it's a sticker. Lol it's just high quality. I think it's like 5 or 7 year vinyl if I'm not mistaken...
