    A small "going active" build.

    Its an s10 with very thin space behind the backseat. The sub that was in it was an Image Dynamics ID8. I'm going to build the box and try all the 8's I have and see which one I like. I'm guessing its going to be between the E8 or ID8.
    Speakers are staying, MB Quart PCE 216, until I get my Adire comps i ordered.

    I'm hoping that active will sound better than passive
    The old: MB Quart 4200 amp, ID8.



    The old out(along with the jack/wrench holder):


    New stuff going in:


    Hopefully everything fits, In my head everything does.
    I'm planning on building the box tomorrow, I've ran the 4guage and grounds.
    box will be roughly .6-7cu/ft tuned to 34-37hz still figuring that one out.

    on that box i got really anxious and just wanted to hear it! lol
    this new box will have a terminal, i'm going to take my time, maybe even finish off with something. All my boxes are MDF finish, it's cheaper that way

    somewhat finished:


    That long blue rca is not there anymore, i have made a fitting rca. I plan to spraypaint the box black in the future. I still have to try the ID8. This set-up is louder than my old set-up and sounds A LOT better.

    Re: A small "going active" build.

    Gotta love single cab builds. I managed to fit 3ft^3 NET at 35hz for two 10's behind my seat lol.

    Downsized to .6ft^3 NET at 32hz for 1 8"

    Should be interesting on the difference of them.
