    Sealed kick panel enclosures

    Couldn't find my old thread so I started a new one. Finally took a video of the progress on my kick build. The hardest part of this build has been keeping my patience. It's probably going to be a couple more months until it's on the road again but it will be worth it.

    So I managed to find a few more hours to work on the little smurf. The bottom is done on the left so going to move over to the right. Yehaa!!!

    Gain on an amplifier to meant to be matched to the output voltage of your headunit. Think 3 volt, 4 volt, 5 volt pre out specs you see on headunit specs. This is how gain works for a given pre out(5 volt) theoretically. However most head units clip(start to distort) at around 80% of your volume so your 5 volt pre out wont give 5 volts Cleanly. You will most likely get 4 volts out at something like 33/40 on your volume knob and would thus set your gain to 4 volts. (these things can be measured with a GOOD Multimeter. )
    80% of your total volume is (max volume) X 0.8.
    Example is 40(is your max volume so, 40 X .8=32

    That's pretty ambitious. Hope it sounds good enough to justify all the cost and effort.

    It should sound alright. I'm not expecting perfection. They're going to be solid, well damped and large enough I think. .5 after bracing. Not ideal but what else is in a car. The imaging was descent before. Should be better with this. High hopes I guess. Could probably put 8" if I wanted to change setup after a while too.

    Cost hasn't been too high. After everything it's under $300 Canadian. And that's over a few months so whatever.
