So far I have two 15 inch american bass XFL 1544 dual four ohm. 1 american bass VFL 150.1.
Rockford T2652-S components that will be powered by a Rockford Fosgate P400-4.
Rockford Fosgate RFK1 1/0 AWG Power Only Install Kit. Rockford Fosgate RFK4X 4 AWG Complete Amplifier Install Kit
Rockford Fosgate RFIT-16 16 feet Premium Dual Twist Signal Cable
GLS Audio Premium 12 Gauge 50 Feet Speaker Wire for subs (might get 10 gauge and use the 12 for the components instead)
That was I have at the moment.
I will be ordering a mechman alternator, having a bigger box built, and buying everything for buss bars. On top of that I have about $1,500 to complete this build. Cant wait to start the install but its going to be a bit cause car audio is not cheap.
Comment tell me what you think



220 Oz magnet 1000 RMS (under-rated)

Yea Rockford fosgates guilty is top notch. If you have never seen there 1/0 Gauge wire you should get some.

those xfls could take 1800+ RMS each and that BBox isnt to bad i had one i would guess the tuning is around 37-39hz though so it has nice range but wont kill the lows like those subs should good luck looks good!

Its been a while since I did an update so I thought I would share a little progress. I redid the box but its not done yet. I still have another coat of trunk liner and Im painting the port white. This box is just holding me over until I get the money to have one built or build one myself.

Custom enclosure would definitely hit better. Nice choice on the gear though, just not a fan of the prefabs. Nice work on the build as well.

Well I got my system all hook up but Its just temp for now and my voltage is dropping low because I need to find a better ground. Its kinda hard to see in the video but its hitting hard and went to a few car audio stores and they all said I was hitting in the high 140s so after I fix the ground and get my high out alt then I should be able to hit a 150 or so.

Not bad but I highly doubt that one 150.

I didnt say 150 in this video I said high 140s and maybe 150 when I get my voltage right and my alt. It dont seem like it but its slamming

Thanks man I had to redo it again because I blew the back of the box off the first day of pounding lol



What's the sub amp?

Its 2 american Bass XFL 15s dual 4 wired down to 1 ohm on an american bass VFL 150.1 I have a XS Power D5100 up front and two HC2000 In the trunk. All rockford and XS power 1/0 gauge. Rockford T2652-S components powered by a Rockford Fosgate P400-4.

I bolting my trunk shut and sealing the subs in the trunk so stay tuned

I know, I was saying I highly doubt that 150 even if you get that voltage up. Its really hard to do a 150 out of a trunk. Well, maybe if you get yourself a better enclosure then you might be close to it. :)

...which means nothing.

I could say you're in the 180's but unless you've been metered it's just nonsense.

I dont really care about getting metered and Yea I understand what your saying but the people who said that was people who are big into spl competitions so Im sure they know what they are talking about plus I never said I was hitting a certain number just a ballpark.
The reason you cant tell from the video is because most cameras slow fast moving objects down.

The reason we can't tell from the video is because you cannot measure SPL from a ******* video.

No ******* **** **** head. Where the **** did I say I could measure SPL with a video. I said the the reason you cant tell how hard its hitting is because its a video. How may times do I have to say I don't give a **** about getting metered. If you have to comment with something negative then don't read my posts.
