    2004 dodge neon build

    I know the vehicle isn't a prime one for a good sub build. Its what I have at the time, until college is out.

    mods: Big 3 in OFC 0, stock 85amp alt (for now, will be upgrading to a 220 soon), interstate bat under hood, kinetik hc2400 in the trunk, OFC RF 4 front to back (until my 0 arrives in the mail).

    radio: Kenwood excelon x595

    speakers: dash 3.5" infinity kappa's....front doors 6.5" audioque coaxils....rear deck 6x9" vibe slick v2's

    amps: new AQ1200D for substage (soon to be upgrading to the Crescendo BC2000D), and oldschool soundstream p205 for mids and highs.

    substage: 1 15" AQ HDC3 D2 copper coil, wired down to 1 ohm. 8 gauge stinger hpm speaker wire.
    custom box: ~4.2 cubes before all displacement (~3.76 after all displacement). 3/4" mdf, double front baffle, 1" dowel rod bracing, 1 6" aero port tuned at ~35 hertz. sub forward port forward, had to go low on height (15.75" tall box) to fit in the trunk.

    what do you guys think so far? This is my first major system so to me its amazing so far. Need a new speaker amp sooner or later, i like the oldschool sound though.

    pics are on my phone, if you wanna see them or suggest things just pm me

    comments and suggestions welcome!!!!

    sounds like a pretty good build . will you be sealing off the trunk firing sub forward like that?

    just a fyi, you can get alts of other chryslers that are the same exact same case but higher amperage, a ram 318 has a 138a (i think), i run a 160a in my intrepid off of a durango with a 360 (firetruck package) just get the plug from the donor vehicle and cut yours off and wire it in, you may even find one with the same plug

    Also, I still am having dimming problems with my headlights and interior lights. Is this just because of my alt, or lack of haha. or could it be something as simple of grounds? my windows going up or down also make them dim.

    yeah unless yoru sealed but sound waves need a certain distance be he heard properly kinda like when you hear a car bangin far away then when its close up its not as loud if that makes sence. yeah let me know how it sounds when you turn box around. Also it helps jsut having your port and sub loading off something before the sound makes it into the cabin it increased the travel
