    Totally agree, must not be made for actual low end drivers. It's all mushed together or something.

I'll get some better vids when everything is buttoned up. I have to pull it all out on Saturday because we have a road trip on sunday. While everything is out, I will carpet the box and install the better wire (in a much neater manner as well). I realize 8 gauge is overkill but I need it for the HDS3 build that I'm doing next. Also, the HO alt got here today so I'll be installing that as soon as I have time.

    What songs are you guys using these days? I'm still rocking the crap I had from 9 years ago lol
    Lots of EDM.

    Lots and lots of EDM or trap remixes. Then some metal/rock. That's about it lol

    Re: JLJunkie's Retarded Budget Build

    Progress update...... I ripped everything out since everything seems to work quite well. Carpeted the box and updating my speaker wire (8 gauge now instead of 18). I'm also building an amp rack so this thing isn't just bolted to the floor. I think this box needs a logo, way too much open real estate on the front of this thing.

    Box looks great, adding the carpet makes them look like 6.5s lol

    Re: JLJunkie's Retarded Budget Build

    Lol, I noticed that too. The carpet makes the box look way bigger. I am going to rip the carpet off the baffle and paint it. The spaces between the subs are so thin that the carpet doesn't want to stick (even with a metric f u c k ton of adhesive). It's going to be fun scraping this adhesive off to prep for paint haha

    Re: JLJunkie's Retarded Budget Build

    Here's the temporary "amp rack". The carpet I got is almost an exact match to the stock carpet (pardon the dirt and dog hair, haven't cleaned since I started the build). Eventually, I'll design a fancier one on autocad and make it with my 3d printer. One thing I like about this mounting location is that the rear AC vent blows right over the amp. Also, this is the first time I used input adapters and I am very pleased.

    anyone else that ordered these 8's have delay shipping issues? They were suppose to arrive at the store on Wednesday for pickup but the shipping only has the manifest and nothing else.

    Putting that amp next to the air vents, nice, just make sure condensation doesn't drip onto your amp

    I didn't order these 8's, but I did order some subs via WM that shipped out of LA. Took 3 days between printing of the label to being picked up via ups. Sounds like yours is way late though if they were supposed to be available Wednesday.

    Re: JLJunkie's Retarded Budget Build

    Everything is back in the truck. I sealed up a few spots on the box that had some air leaks, also upgraded to 10 gauge speaker wire (couldn't use the 8 gauge, the terminals were too small). I swear it sounds louder than it did before I ripped everything out. Still have a dang ratchet strap holding it in, just need to get some angle iron so I can fab up some brackets. Now I just need to find a meter so I can see what this thing is hitting. I swear, nobody in West Michigan has a friggin' Term Lab (Spooney, any idea where I can get this metered?).

    For a bonus, check out what happens when you hook up one of these Blaupunkt 8's to a wall outlet lol

    You should post a video with those dubstep songs I sent you.

    Re: JLJunkie's Retarded Budget Build

    Alright guys, in true retarded budget fashion, the audiopipe amp has been swapped out for a cheap @$$ maxxsonics piece of crap. Picked up this beautiful Crunch GPV1100.2 on ebay last week for $42.46 (brand spankin new, it was on sale).

    The whole purpose of this... I am competing in the $150 SPL Challenge (facebook group). So we've got the amp @ $42.46, 8 subs - $13.13 x 8 = $105.40, for a grand total of $147.50.

    I tested the amp this afternoon and honestly... it's not half bad for what it is. I was worried that running it at 2ohms bridged would throw it into protect but it took it like a champ. I had it running full tilt for 10-15 minutes, it got hot but kept on beating those subs. This was even being half @$$ installed with speaker wire for power and a jumper cable for a ground lmao. I just need to get a 0 gauge to 8 gauge reducer and this bad boy will be ready to pound. 160db+ here I come! In all seriousness, who wants to take bets on the actual db that this hits? To the ear, I am thinking high 130's if I am lucky haha
