    18" FI Q Installed

    Just put it in... Here are some pics...

    Now keep in mind this was a quick install... Used the vinyl more or less for Rattling issues... Didnt want to put the wood box on a piece of 1/4" MDF for the floor board... so I went out and bought some cheap vinyl...Bought all they had left of this color....which obviously wasnt quite enough when you see the pic of the back...but who cares... vinyl was creased...I thought I could stretch it out, or iron it out...none worked.





    So far I have it wired at 2 ohms.... 1/2 gain on the amp already which kinda concerns me, because the amp is rated at 2000W@2 ohms.... So far......its on and working... gonna give it a few days to break in, but DEF. gonna have to turn it up to 3/4gain to really get it movin....whcih doesnt make a whole lot of sence because the sub is rated @1000 watts

    any suggestions lemme know.

    Re: 18" FI Q Installed

    use the right method to set your gains...halfway on the gain knob doesnt mean half the wattage of the amp at a given ohm rating



    2008 TBSS
    Current Build:
    HU: DEH-80PRS
    Front Stage: ID CTX65CS
    Amplifier: Memphis Big Belle
    Subwoofer: TC Sounds LMS-R 12 in a High Output Enclosure 2.5 @ 30

    Too many CA.com transactions to list.

    Re: 18" FI Q Installed

    no, but still its not even close to recommended.. I had my 15" Type R at half gain and it was slammin....which means it was gettin more than 1000watts....

    no vids yet.. pointless.. gotta let it break in a lil bit...right now my rear view mirror doesnt even move much

    someone wanna send me the link for settin the gain with a DMM

    Re: 18" FI Q Installed

    Just because the Type R was "slammin" does not mean 1000 watts. Do it right please and dont blow such an awesome sub, you will be impressed. There are multiple amp setting tutorials on this forum and all of the math is already done for you as well, search.

    That is one FUGLY *** box you got there....

    Gain setting should be a sticky, do a search.

    Re: 18" FI Q Installed

    OK I changed one of the RCA's... (think it was in the wrong spot) but the DMM went from 1.8 to 3.6 (doubled)... but in no way does it read anything close to 63V.. it reads 3.6 3.6------ .36------ when I change the range on the DMM, but never reads 36


    ahhhh,,, someone tune in here.... I gotta leave in 20 min. for work... wanna get this right TODAY!~
