    Small Kicker Build. 4 12's, 10k, etc.

    I will edit this much more over the weekend. It will also be a bit of time before I actually get much more work done on it as funds are scarce.

    To start though, I will soon be wiring this up 8ohm on what I currently have and running them on about 4k as opposed to the 2800w they were seeing the last 5 years. Should be fun.

    Forgot to mention, will eventually have 2 sets of Kicker QS components ran on 1 (maybe 2) SX900.4

    30cu. below window, some of box going into the bed for the air space. subs forward, port up.

    Tuned to 34. Ridiculous amount of port area.

    It isn't. I'm running 16cu before displacement as it is. Comes out to a bit over 5cu per sub after. Going to shoot for 5 cu per sub after displacement again.

    It gets WAY down considering 36hz tuning.

    Updates. I was in such a hurry to get it running (had somewhere to be yesterday evening), forgot to take many pics. I am running now, however. Still have some tuning to do. Thing puts out ridiculous power, even at 4ohm. Saw white smoke from my system for the first time ever. I then backed the potentiometer down...






    Looks like spaghetti, I know, but this is very temporary and I was just trying to get it running for the time being. When we get the actual build done, this will look a lot cleaner.
