    Re: 01 Explorer Tiny DD setup to (2) 18 AT Stratos in a 4th

    That's about where I'm at right now. Oh also picked up one of these and my life is so much better. Old Lead Acid was also taking a dump.



    As promised, I tried to get pictures of the truck, but she is dirrrtyy (so much salt that the front looks like I dipped it above the bumper). I've got all the plastic trim dipped in grey now, but I don't think you can tell. Tailgate is all black so the rust will keep off of it. Once there's a nice day to wash her off, I'll get clean pictures.





    Only other thing I need to do really is make some trim panels for around the sub box and add another baffle to make the sub flush mounted or swap out the lvl5 for the m3 8s, and get a little cargo area back- still haven't made a final decision on this, but I'm going to at least get them in there. For now though,I'm pretty pleased with where I am. Sounds great, have minimal alt whine (only have a slight slight amount through the founteks that you can hear if the volume is at 1-2 and I think it's just a crap pair of rcas causing it).

    Only other thing I might do between now and then is swap out the z120 for the 80prs and see how things sound, but we'll see. Happy for now.

    Re: 01 Explorer Tiny DD setup to (2) 18 AT Stratos in a 4th

    Finally found a trade offer I liked that was local to me for the lvl 5. Guy was pretty chill- rebuilds amps and just put a BC5500 into his sentra, so I actually got to hear something with a little power to it in this weather. Gonna miss the sub, but I'd rather have a bigger amp than a big sub on little to no power. Plus it's cheaper to sell and ship the M1c when it comes time to get rid of it:



    Definitely more power than what I need, but this will be the perfect amount to get the explorer super loud if I feel that itch. So here's the list in the order of where this is headed next:

    TEMP setup:
    May or may not leave the M1c in- currently fits on the amp rack
    9012 is going back in for the millionth time, BUT there's going to be a new box built for it hopefully within the next week (weather permitting)

    Things that need to be done:
    -Rebuild the amp rack so that the zx will fit
    -Sell the M1c and 9012 to someone as a combo deal
    -Get the m38s fixed from the profits and build a new box
    -Decide on a DSP finally

    ^Not sure if all this ish will happen before I store it for summer or if it'll be something I pick back up in September/October

    9012 is getting Quasi 6th'd come Friday thanks to Buck. Gotta wait for this dumb winter storm to pass for the next two days...



    In the meanwhile, I've got this to entertain me as long as XBL gets it's shit together

    Definitely would not recommend if you've got extreme temps- doors haven't held up well after 2 winters haha. Kind of happy I did it though, because the doors need to be redone, so it's just more motivation to do it. Might try and knock it out before I take my car out of storage for summer.

    15 degrees tomorrow -_- going to try and get everything penciled on so when Friday comes around I can just get up and get to cutting. Think i might need to grab another sheet of mdf though. Not even sure what I still have in the garage.

    Yessir! That's my summer car. Still own it. Different setup now and she's on bags. Still miss that setup though.

    Things were dope- i think they're in a box somewhere in my house still...


    Small update for the night. Got all my wood cut during the day to start the new enclosure, but didn't start building until late this evening.





    Pulled a stupid move and routed the baffles before screwing/gluing them together, but luckily, they weren't off by much.





    Dem 45z (already popped a few in the enclosure before this)









    And here's where I'm leaving it for the night. Need sleep after a 20 hour day of cutting, skateboarding, and building. Drills need charging.

    Finally got this bitch together



    Only had one big issue putting this thing together...



    Talk about WARPED That's what you get when you let wood chill for 7 months though...any who, this of course was the piece I was going to make removable, but I had to put the top on to straighten things out. Back to the pictures.

    whipping up some TBII and saw dust to seal things up...



    Sealing ish



    Sub is in





    DAT ASS



    Ass4dayz


    Dem bolt terms



    Aaand everything together. Kind of skipped a picture of the dowel inside for bracing, but I'll get a picture of that when I get up



    All I need to do is toss it in, wire it up, and get to testing it when I get up. Probably won't be up till 3-4pm though.

    Andddd she's in. I've only had about 20 minutes total to mess around with it, but I'm really digging it for a single 12 off 1200ish watts. Gets loud and sounds nice.



    Internals






    Would love to see how it sounds with 2k to it, but that's not going to happen unless I sell/trade the kicker for something else. For now though, I think this is great until I fix the 8s. Gotta look at the T/S for those still, but more than likely I'm going to put them in a 4th or 6th order.

    Tried to get a picture of the exterior of the truck when it's clean, but couldn't get a good angle, so yolo for now.





    Expect more updates in about a month for the 8s/zx2500 build

    Nice man what'd you think? Kinda miss those days. I think I've only made it out there once or twice in the past two years. Stopped going when the EC car club broke

    Thanks man- i don't think I'll ever be finished with it haha

    @Buck is definitely the best person to ask, but from what I recall, they have a little efficiency over 4ths, but you also have a larger phase shift with 6th orders and sacrifice some of the transient response on the lower frequencies...

    Main reason I went with a 6th over a 4th really just had to do with the driver. I wanted to test out another 4th, but when I looked at the t/s for the 9012, it was 100% suited for a 6th. Might go back to a 4th with the m3 8s once I get them reconed to d4s
