I wasn't going to start a build thread on here yet since I will not actually be returning from Afghanistan until sometime in January, but I want everything to be in one place for this build so f**k it...
Here is what I am thinking, but I want some help/advice/opinions... I want to build something that will have good SQ for daily bumping, but be able to pull a respectable SPL as well. Also trying to stay around 1K for subs and amps.
So I think I am going to go with 12 of these... http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...ME+R1S410.html
And want run 3 of these.... http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...F2000-1D-.html
Each amp will power 4 subs wired in series producing a 4ohm load like so...http://akamaipix.crutchfield.com/ca/...4-ohm_mono.jpg
I am going to build the box myslef, making 3 rows of 4 subs netting 1 cubic foot per sub in a sealed box. Think this is too much space? I heard these particular subs like a little bigger box.
I can not exactly remember what head unit is in the truck, nothing too high speed though. I think it is a kenwood maybe, it was in the truck when I bought it. It will probably get an upgrade though eventually as well as the speakers.
My vehicle of choice will be my trusty ole 1987 Suburban with a 4" Rancho suspension lift sitting on 35x12.50x16.5 BFG ATs which I off road on a regular basis.
I am pretty set on the subwoofers but open for suggestions.
At this point I will probably go with these amps, but since I am not to familiar with power acoustic, id deff be open for better suggestions. I just need and amp that will give me 600-750 watts RMS @ 4ohms, but dont want to spend more then 250 per amp.
I think this about covers it, though some of you may be asking yourselves, WHY? Simple answer really..I DO NOT like doing things the same way as others. I have nearly re-invented the wheel on every project I have done. Like said before, I think this combo should produce some pretty good SPL while retaining good SQ for daily bumping.
OK guys...I'm open for opinions/thoughts/suggestions/put downs/trash talk and any other thing you can throw at me.
The truck I will be using for this build...
