    1994 jeep grand cherokee build

    After building my previous system in my old Toyota pickup (sa8 v2) the drive line took a serious dump so time to start a new.



    Picked up a 94 jeep grand Cherokee for 900$ now im not a jeep guy but what got me was the v8, space inside, the po had installed a brand new 150a mopar alt the week before I bought it, and jeep zj's have some serious insulation and sound deadening from the factory in the doors hatch and fire wall.



    Im still in high school with just a minimum wage job so its gonna be a slow build but my wood tech teacher is letting me build a box for my class project. listen to mostly rap and dubstep, just looking to get as loud as possible and a hair trick would be awesome but don't need to do one. budget doesn't matter it just takes me awhile to save up for parts for the build

    I am considering

    2 sundown sa12's

    1 orion hcca 12

    1 sundown x15's

    2 DC lvl 4 with xl parts

    Its hard to decide lol

    like I said its gonna be a slow build as I gather parts

    I was thinking a 18" would be sweet everyone that drives to school with systems thinks their 2 sony xplodes and kicker comps in terrible sealed boxes are the loudest thing ever. I had my Toyota pickup with a single sa-8 v.2 on clean 700w power in an aero ported box I made and it hammered.

    I have to take measurements to see if I can fit a box for a 18.

    Re: 1994 jeep grand cherokee build

    I decided 3 sa8 v2s having 1 already helped my decision. Going to build my box short and fat like a pancake 2.5^ 45 square port area not shure if I want to tune low like 27-28hz or go with 32hz

    going to mount them in a triangle 2 rears inverted and the front regular. Gotta show off those beefy 8 motors.

    decided on the 8's because they have great response and can play any kind of music well

    Don't get 8's. Get a really good 15. My best numbers in my Jeep have always been single 15. Sub up port out towards passenger side.

    Re: 1994 jeep grand cherokee build

    honestly i've heard a couple of setups all in the same jeep that i currently own. it passed thru a ew hands before i bought it and like the guy above says a 15 will sound great. i had 2 10s in it, my bro in law had 2 12s and the acoustics are very well suited for low rumbling bass

    It's not an SPL build just looking for a daily that gets loud and low

    Low and louds means low tuning and lots of cone area power is power you can fudge it a little by making the box bigger or smaller but 1 18 in 2k will sound great.

    numbers wise hispl is right 1 15 corner ported towards the driver side rear

    1 sundown x 15 it is. I think the X 2k would = 1 mid powered 18 I mean less cone area obviously but if im not mistaken the new x drivers have some wicked excursion so doesn't that make up for less cone area?

    I started cutting the baffle pieces today ill post pics up tomorrow, I only have 55 min a day to work on it because the school changed all shop classes to single periods all year instead of doubles for half the year. They also have a lame no phone policy but I cant have a build thread with no pics so ill snap them as I go along im shure my teacher will look the other way
