Got a box in the mail from @papageno21 today. Here's what was inside the box:
Didn't even have the decency to spell it out -_-
And inside that were these:
Gonna do these this weekend. Also gonna visit Lowe's and snag some washers for my PR's. Gonna tune it down, and actually set my gains.
Also sent out the Levi today.
LOL did he really write that on the outside of the package?

So, first thing I did after work was tune this box down. Added 20 washers to each PR. Don't know the weight of each washer, but I know the count, so it's not super important right now.
Did the cone resonance test again, and found my tuning to now be at 27Hz.
Next thing I did was set the gain on my 5.0k. Used a 50Hz -5dB tone. First I found what I was at, then I adjusted gain until I was at my target voltage of 65V, which is about 4200W RMS. Here's my findings:
Before adjusting gain:
A/C Voltage: 36V
After adjusting gain:
A/C Voltage: 65V
Yep, all those videos above (and what you heard @FamousMassacre and @myjaja ) are with these two subs on 1300W, so roughly 650W to each sub. Tuning was at 35Hz.
This tuning is much better. I'm not missing notes down below, and I can hear the peak that was around 36-45 flatten out a little. Playing 27Hz at 4200W, my PR's are crying. Just screaming for mercy. These things are moving a LOT. Thinkin about tuning down just so I can have a little leeway in their movement. On the other hand, part of me just says fuck it, if they shred I'll have PSI build them better next time.
More to come, haven't played it barely at all. Need to find somewhere to go where I won't piss everyone off lol. But things are moving around on my vehicle much more now.
the amp inside the box...
is it okay to have speaker wires passing in/around near the power wires?
nice build I wish I had the space for all of that
Front Stage: Rainbow SLC 265
Front Stage Amp: Image Dynamics i2600
Sub: Dayton RSS210HF-4 8"
Sub Amp: Image Dynamics i2300
Got my buss bars installed this morning.
Kudos to @PapaGeno21 , he made these, and they were perfect, dropped right on to the terminals without me having to move the batteries at all. Wiring still isn't real clean, but better. Can't really do TOO much with that temp amp in there. I'll be doing cable management once the Levi gets back and I can get that MTX out of there.
Really the only thing left to do is figure out how I'm gonna cover the mids.
By the way this tuning is so much better for my tastes.
Finally vacuumed and cleaned the truck too. Gonna head down to the weekly car meet tonight, we'll see what happens.
Went to the local weekly car show tonight, gave a couple demos. I'm starting to get the feeling I don't have enough PR area for my power. At tuning (which is 27Hz right now), at full tilt (which is 4200W right now), the PR's are making mechanical noises. Traveling a buttload, has to be at or damn near their 3.5" p-p rating. Not sure my subs really like 4200W either though, the motors are getting warm. Then again it's fucking 92 degrees at 10 o'clock. Fuck Texas.
Also noticed that it's not really that loud outside the car, but once you close the hatch, inside the car is decently loud. Loading is an amazing thing.
I can't wait until I get my Levi back. Because then I can start worrying about tuning the front stage and blending everything, and that means lower sub levels. Right now all I really care about are the subs.
I already want to be louder.
