Get over any fear of buying used kuz you have paypal to protect and reimburse you if anything goes sour. Thats one of the best budget amps out there and thats a great for it, its not gonna last much longer.

    Re: 12" Subwoofer for a 1990 Corvette

    For anyone following this thread I was able to get a Precision Power PPI BK1800.1D brand new on eBay for $199. So, so far I have the SoundQubed HDS312 subwoofer and the PPI BK1800.1D in a small sealed box. This weekend I am building my new box. Which will be one of the following designs. (I will be posting pictures as the day goes on and will be carpeting it also.)

    2cu feet @32hz


    2.5cu feet @32hz


    so I will do some more measuring and we will see how it turns out. Remember my car is very tiny in the back and really close to my head lol.

    About to cut the hole out, will be in the dead center of the front board. Then liquid nail Er and nailgun to finish. Will be good to go! 32hz at 2.5cu feet.

    Re: 12" Subwoofer for a 1990 Corvette

    Finally got done and oh my good lord. Running approx 300-400rms watts from my amplifier (I know its underpowered it only until I get my PPI BK1800 in). It sounds like God is shaking my house down. I'm literally scared for my life when I get my amp in Monday. Carpet comes tomorrow!

    Re: 12" Subwoofer for a 1990 Corvette

    i had a re sx 18" in 5.5 cubes net tuned to 34hz in my vette - on 1200watts it was insane. fiberglass cars do not flex - i realley miss that car and setup.
    i was prett stupid still back then when i had that car - and put a optima yellow top under the hood - still had voltage issues and put a kenetik 800 size battery in one of the behind the seat compartments back there and was good.
    but optima batterys are terrible - and one good agm battery up front would have kept me going.

    also forgot to add - that my rear glass latch would make awfull rattle noise - until one day i decided to go thru it and make it shut as tight as i could make the glass press down against the rubber. then it was much less "noisy" haha
    hope you dont have to much issues with the "rattles" in the rear compartment - on my vette all the plastic trim pieces would vibrate against eachother and make noise - i ended up using 3m foam double sided tape at all the joints where they meet up and screw together as a buffer to keep contact noise from being so annoying

    Holy. I wanted SOME room in my back area. I am going to start flipping my box around to get best sound reproduction when I get this carpet on. That box is massive btw lol.

    So I decided to just staple one corner because I ran out of the 3M adhesive spray and I will say right now it looks phenomenal!





    we had it laying on some boards so my positive and negative terminals didn't get pushed through the table

    Waiting on my new amp to come in!

    Just saw this. I have no rattles what so ever in my vette. These cars were sound proofed so good with all the foam padding and adhesive tape under the carpet.
