    2 18's in a RANGER!!!

    Well, this is the build I've been working on, and finally got finished about 3 weeks ago. Everything is finished, except the amps are on their way right now (Hifonics Bxi2608's). Since I'm still in high school, I have unlimited access to pretty much any machine I want. And, since our school recently got a CNC machine, it made cutting the circles out of the baffle a breeze (It took a total of 15 minutes to cut ALL 3 baffles). And all the cuts it made were perfect, which helped out alot. Pretty much all of this started when a kid I work with got a listen to my setup, a Bl12. After that he was immediately impressed and wanted a Fi setup. His old setup was 4 CRV 12's powered by an old Kicker 1000 amp. I believe the highest he hit was a 141.2 on the TL. So, after talking to him about what he could do, we finally decided on this setup:

    Subs: 2 Fi Bl 18 D1

    Sub amps: 2 Hifonics Bxi2608D (will be coming Thursday)

    Speakers: 2 Alpine Type S 5x7 component sets, and 2 Alpine Type S 6x9's

    Speaker amp: Kenwood KAC-6402

    Headunit: Alpine 9881

    Wire: 30 ft. of Knuconcepts 1/0

    Deadening: 63 sq. ft.

    And just some other random stuff: all 14 gauge speaker wire, 4 Everstart Max batteries, and push-button start.


    The first thing I'll start with is the building of the box. The box itself is about 14.9 cubes, with 2 6" aero ports tuned to 32 hz. I used about 2 1/2 sheets of MDF, which I was surprised that was all I used. The demensions on the box are 46" wide, 37" tall, and 18" deep. I really wanted to have the flush mount look, so the front baffle is 2 sheets thick, with a third sheet as the flush trim piece.

    Re: 2 18's in a RANGER!!!

    After I got the box made, I wanted to test fit it into the truck to make sure it fit, but of course it wasn't so easy. The only thing I had to do was make a small notch in the bottom of the box so it would slide over the transmission well inside the truck.

    But anyway, only after I got the box finished did the equipment come in. The headunit was already put in, and so where the speakers, but everything else came in after this point.









    And since this kid's dad is a carpet installer, I covered it in a medium gray felt. If I didn't get it on right the first time, it would have been fine because I cut this off a role that was 12'x50'.

    So, after getting the box carpeted and all that good stuff, we finally got to put it in. If you notice, I've got a dead-blow hammer and a 2" end wrench to pry it into position. It went in perfectly, but the box weighs so much it wasn't easy to move around.

    Re: 2 18's in a RANGER!!!

    And so now we wait on the amps to come in. Once we get them in, I'll be sure to make a video. We did hook it up to my amp (powerbass asa1500.1) at 1 ohm, and it was LOUD. I do have some video, so i'll upload them here in a minute. I almost forgot, here are some random pictures of the tearout and laying of raamat. we did 1 layer on the floor, and 3 layers on the roof. As you'll see in the video, 3 layers didn't help a whole lot, but it's better than nothing.

    Good hell! My buddy had a Ranger x-cab with 4 CrossFire 10's running off a Crossfire 1Kd and I thought that was loud. Nice work indeed. Post some vids.
