Well, I figured "Why not?" and decided to make this.

Started out stock(don't they all?)

Put my first subwoofer in it

12" Kicker CVR
1000w Boss Chaos Amp

Beginning was aimed towards showing a loose connection.


Got that subwoofer in September 2012.


In February I finally bought:
12" American Bass XFL
2.3cf 33hz box
American Bass VFL Hybrid 2680

A week later: sub, box and amp arrived!

Oh no! American Bass sent me the wrong subwoofer! I didn't order a 10" :(

Called AB and sent it back for a replacement.

Decided to hook up the amp:

Met with a user and had him help with tuning the amp to the Kicker CVR to about 600RMS.

Got my subwoofer and hooked it up without changing the amp settings:

Met back up with him and he retuned it for me and here is the final tune:

Amp on no load gets about 14.8v without the big 3 and on a stock battery. I have a big 3 kit that I will install later.


Now I'm on a quest to get some good speakers.
