    Q bomb box

  2. 3 points
    You know how I know you are clipping? you are playing 20ish hz material which is usually rebassed music and that sh*t is -5 to -1 db recording levels and you set the gains with a -10 db recording level. Just because you used an oscope doesnt mean its clean or its a correct gain setting. Its only correct for playing that test tone, not correct for playing music. Music is dynamic not a test tone, Its not the same when its 1 ohm or 4 ohm. 4 ohms you have box rise up to 8 ohms or higher thats the power you see out of your amp, i'm guessing you've never clamp tested the setup ever. You then run into the issue of not having clean dynamic headroom aka when some music has higher bass strength in the recording levels than others. WHen you wire to 1 ohm, you have all the headroom in the world for this. You also just set the gains via voltage drop so there's no excuse if you dont have the electrical. I have two 15ks off one single battery right now at 1 ohm each because my other batteries died in an accident. Its running completely fine because i found the proper level, none of the subs nor amps nor electrical system is stressed. When you wired to 4 ohms you were literally maxing out the amp 100-120% vs running 1 ohm the amp would be barely lifting a finger. which lasts longer? which gives a cleaner overall signal? I dont know how to make this any clearer to you.

    Want advice now? I quote you in that other thread... "lol your funny i have a high output alternator actual one is pictured here , 4 batteries , i dont need to tell you these details .. im just looking to build a box and got a lecture about sealed isnt good..lmao forget i asked you guys.. i know now never to ask for help here again.. its fine with me i got my box designs through email direct from orion audio... see ya later and its a adjustable box. sealed and ported" Then this nugget... "went with ported... sorry sealed ...lol" Why ask for advice if you're just going to do whatever you are bent on doing anyways.

    Got the meter today and finally learned what incredible deebeez this thing is hitting. 141.8 lol Keep in mind that my electrical system is bone stock and I'm running these on an audiopipe APMI-2K wired @ 2 ohm. With box rise, realistically these things are only seeing about 700-800 watts (if that). In the video I had a brain fart and said they were wired @ 4ohm. Anyways, here's the video:

    Looking for sub recommendations

    There is a search function on this site and Google still works I believe, ported vs sealed has to be the subject of hundreds of threads, or even a simple recommendation has turned into exactly that subject. There have been some hard-headed folks lately and they've been less than willing to learn as well... just getting tedious... that's all. There has been a rash of these type of questions lately on this site, hopefully this time the subject does not degenerate into a roasting like it has pretty much every-time.

    I can't remember the name of the box but it's the one that comes with a saw and a circle jig.

    Do you remember how we used to be able to joke with someone or have a conversation with someone and they understood the joke or the context of the conversation? It is almost painful for me to talk to anyone at work these days. We have one guy (That guy who modifies everything with the best of everything) that just traded in his Miata for a 2008 Mustang GT. Already he says he has "installed a supercharger" on it that he can turn on and off with the push of a button. The night before last he almost wrecked his new car after we clocked out and headed home. My boss, a Man who desperately wants to be a Woman and is doing everything possible to be a Woman... hormones, laser hair removal, forcing a higher pitched voice... has avoided contact with society so much that even the most normal conversations or humor bounces off and is returned with "I'm sorry" or some other weird response. Someone cranked the sensitivity level on this one to 12 on the 1 - 10 meter as well. I actually told my boss that people today are way to sensitive about everything. The response I got was "Join us on this side" I said no thanks, I don't feel the need to cry because the color of the sky reminds me of a puppy somehow or get upset because someone spoke to me and I don't have the mental capacity to understand what was said but instead automatically take a conversation, almost any conversation and make it negative somehow so I have a reason or excuse to show the world how I identify. The other boss who is dating a co-worker but doesn't want anyone to know because she is not allowed to do so. She likes to talk to everyone as loud as she can and like we are all 10 years old. You know this one... the one who bitches at or about us and how we need to be doing this or that but stands her ass in the back stuffing her face with free food or talking to her secret boyfriend instead of being upfront where she is supposed to be helping the customers who ask me for help and I have to go find her... to which she tries to yell at me for not doing her job. Ahhh the co-workers who kick it into slow motion when they are in between deliveries. These assclowns that move so damn slow that they get damn near nothing done and leave so much work for the closers... usually my brother and myself 4 days a week. One of these fucktards took a delivery, he should have taken two because the two were going to the EXACT same address, he takes one of them because he is so damn mentally slow that he can't comprehend that the two addresses are the same. I take the other... two minutes behind him. As I get there, he is backing out of their driveway and he passes me as I park. I go deliver the food and as I am walking back to the Jeep... he passes me going the other way, deeper into the neighborhood away from the exit. I just kind of look at him continue to drive down the road and shake my head. I head back to work... he is not there. 10 MINUTES LATER HE WALKS IN!! HUH?!?!?! The girl at work who won't accept that her boyfriend would rather play his online games than spend time with or have sex with her. If she didn't show signs of herpes, I would have already tapped this one as she has been to my house several times complaining about her boyfriend... but them cold sores.... lol nope!!! What has happened to people?

    Looking for sub recommendations

    The sealed vs ported subject seems to be constantly brought up by folks who have heard generalizations, have preconceptions, are scared to attempt designing/building one and have zero experience hearing a properly designed enclosure. It's easy to just make statements but to actually expand one's knowledge it takes some willingness to learn, facts are facts.... sometimes those facts might be unpleasant but they're still facts. I'd suggest you demo someones well setup system that is actually loud... it is not the 90's anymore I've heard sealed pretty loud as well, cone is king and they're inefficient and huge wastes of space and power imo.... as long as the driver is one that will work in ported I'd do it. My .02 I'm out Maybe subjective can be a bad thing if actual facts are not considered... Idk

    Anybody know what this is?

    some classes of commercial vehicles require a sound be emitted when in reverse. it was probably used in a job that requires that kind of compliance in the past. oh its a e250, those things are notorious for healthcare use. definitely a backup alarm and a passive sensor probably on the left and right of the rear bumper or the front/back bumpers does the interior smell like old people?
