    van build 32 hfi12d4s

    well after many weeks of flopping back and forth i finally ****** it up and ordered some equipment at 3am this morning after work.
    equipment list for the van will go as follows
    32 hfi12d4s
    4 audiopipe 1500s at 1 ohm
    4 audiopipe ap2004 each channel at 2 ohms
    32 6.5" speakers< any suggestions?
    still saving for alts
    still looking for cheap batteries

    im basically building a giant budget setup using some pretty well known budget equipment. the only thing i cant find are super cheap speakers that wont sound like **** at loud volumes.
    i am going in the morning to cash my check and pick up some mdf. im still looking for a box design but i figure im going to need a few sheets so i might as well go pick them up. i also will most likely be building a 2x4 cage to hold everything.

    there is going to be nothing budget about a build like this, as the cost the equipment he has listed is only a fraction of the cost of a build like this. The electrical to back up even a "budget" system like this is a huge investment.

    You are planning on putting in 32 mids/highs and you mention low volume! LOL

    dude are you sure you can deal with a build like this? No offence ment, but I see conflict everywhere.

    Re: van build

    you may want to look into going DIY and get mids and highs from someone like parts express...

    possibly for mids:
    Peerless India W6-KA638-SH 6.5" Paper Cone Shielded Woofer | Parts-Express.com or Bravox WFR-06BV02B 6-1/2" Poly Cone Shielded Woofer 6 Ohm | Parts-Express.com

    and for highs:
    Dayton DC25TS-8 1" Titanium Dome Shielded Tweeter | Parts-Express.com or if you have room HiVi TN25 Fabric Dome Tweeter | Parts-Express.com

    And that is the way I say sorry for reading > me and screwing up your thread
