    flared 1.5 @ 32hz

    It's not quite a build log, but close enough. this was my first time building a flared box so its pretty crude, but i think it cleaned up nicely (for what it is...). My next flared box will be better i promise. sorry for the fuzzy cell pics.

    some of you might recognize this picture - it was the practice piece. this piece was not used on the box!


    i think i made a lil bit of improvement...


    the left side of the port is pretty ugly, i was pretty much just breaking the wood. however it doesn't really need to be all that strong so i just sanded it smooth and it turned out pretty decent.


    all done! the black material is called "pleather" looks pretty decent and pretty cheap. the rest is just gray carpet.


    i decided to mount the amp in the lil gap that the flare made, made it look pretty stealthy... this side also showcases my carpeting skills


    another one with the amp. its a kicker zx400.1


    and another one of the front.



    all in all i gained a lot of experience in this build. my carpeting skills are still pretty weak, along with my kerfing skills. but i can only get better and i feel confident my next box will be perty good.

    oh, and the sub is an eD 13Kv2

    i dunno, this was gonna be the replacement setup for my fi q 15, but since no one wants to buy it i just might sell this. OR i might build a diff box for my q and use this as a temp. setup. but if i ever hook it up i'll be sure to let u know.

    i know there's a lot of hate goin on around here but i'd figure i'd give em a try since it was only $63.xx shipped

    Re: flared 1.5 @ 32hz

    well i got pretty bored and decided to test out the new shiz. i didn't want to disconnect my current amp and reconnect the kicker, so i just wired it to one channel of my t5002 and backed the gains a lil bit.

    one of the first things i noticed was the lack of low end. however, this was going from a 15" Fi Q to a lower end 12" from eD, so that was to be expected, nothing a lil eq tweaking couldn't fix. drum kicks were tight, and it had a good musical range. the output was pretty much what i expected, it didn't shake my truck apart nor could i feel it from the outside, buy it was only a step or two behind my type argh back when i had it. all in all its a solid sub. definitely a worth the $$$ i spent.
