    18s walled custom 5100s log.

    I thought I'd update CA. on my current project.
    I started by carpeting the wall and making templates for the woofers


    Then the amp rack got wired up.






    Bars for the rear:


    Upgraded the wiring unde the hood:





    Shaped the doors a bit:



    Extended the port


    Did some post port change testing on the response curve:





    Thanks for looking

    Upgraded the power plant:



    The old setup was ~240A (110A in stock location and 130A in the front both OEM) but I decided to put a large GM case 300A peak alt in the front for a total of 400+rated amps of alt power.

    There is always space! trust me, you won't miss it.

    I get crazed looks all the time when people see the drivers.

    TY the port has its ups and downs but always has the unique factor.

    I'll be honest, most of the time I bring in the sub stage just enough to compliment the front stage and not much more. Only at shows to I clip the hell out of them and go full tilt.

    I unwound the coil of the drivers side woofer due to user error, I am starting to line up replacement parts now for a rebuild.

    yeah it was a big gain. I'm mildly disappointed I won't have another shot to test haha.

    These woofers may not be the end all high power all day drivers, but they sure can burp something fierce.
