  1. Recently witnessed my mail and other neighbors mail being stolen the other day... Half the burger patty on the bun. Some people that aren't educated enough to be on this forum, spreading around misinformation... people at work that barely do their job, or not at all. It's the little things they don't do so you gotta do it to satisfy your job.

    Box builders or someone who sells designs?

    Port area and port length is just as important as the internal volume itself, if you want the sub or subs to sound good. He was doing an install for someone he knows which utilized some JL shallow mounts. Which sounded ok to both of them but then he threw in some Audiofrog subs he had in his garage and sounded much better in the box.

    I've seen this Foxbox in person and the supposed cu ft for them isn't true. I went to a buddy's house and he was doing exactly what you're wanting to do. I'm curious as to how your gonna modify an already prefab enclosure?

    Glad I got rid of my SS amps. It was time to upgrade anyway, and being sneaky about going with cheaper components in the amp is just being cheap and lying about the product and to the public. On the good news side, I managed to get my better 4 ch working and set the other day.....sucker can get pretty loud and solid power on my Polk Audio speakers whereas the SS didn't even come close.
  9. LOC is Length Of Cut. Lol...sorry coming from a machinist. But on a serious note, LOC (Line Output Converter) is an aftermarket unit to use in any stock vehicle to hook up anything after market HU: Amp(s), subs, etc. As for adding front speakers and making them sound worse, not really, but would be better with a nice 4 ch amp, it'll make them 1000x better when they have power. I'm in the process of doing the same. Also takes some tuning to make the speakers sound good as well as location.

    Bass only on 1 side

    Vehicle, box orientation, tuning the system, etc all factor in. Never heard of bass on 1 side before. Elaberate more please.
  12. Sounds like your sub/amp combo is overpowering your front speakers. Are you running an LOC by chance? Stock HU? I highly doubt they set the gain for ya on the amp to the sub to match everything else, which could also be another problem.

    Interesting. It was the 4 ch amp boner for awhile. People bought them and loved it. I wonder what's going on now.... @Jeffdachef any insight on this?

    Where do you plan on putting this sub at? Behind the rear seat? Under the rear seat? @shredder2 can prob cook you up a design for ya. Just need some more info that will more than likely get asked.

    ?- Are spl subs capable of tight bass?

    Wrong section bro. A sealed box will tend to need a lot of power to get it to sound good vs. a good designed ported one. I might suggest a ported box tuned to 36Hz should have nice SQ.

    too much power? need upgrades?

    What do you mean basic? Which model are they because they have like 4 revisions for that particular model. You can "limit" an amps output by setting the gain properly. I would pass on the amp as I'm not too fond of them and the output power might be inflated. Lets say those subs are 300 rms....set the gain from DMM to 17.32 Or lets say the subs are 400rms set the gain to 20.00 or close to it on the DMM.

    Looking for sub recommendations

    Can I join in on the party?! A buddy of mine has a SQ/SPL set up in his Dodge ext king cab. 2 15's ported to 36Hz for SPL and a single sealed 12" JL sub for SQ. A master switch can be used to listen to either. Paired with an assortment of Hybrid Audio speakers mids/tweets, it's pretty loud but not blow the doors off loud. Lastly, no matter what volume it's at, it sounds good overall. Case in point, the fact that sealed sounds better than ported isn't true. Some factors that play into a good sounding box is prob the most important is a good design, then the tuning and bracing to prevent any standing waves inside. Take Jeffs suggestion and run with it. You're not gonna get any louder with the same subs in another sealed box on 500 watts. You want louder, go ported. Or go home. Take ya pick. Lastly, I'd like to know what these sealed boxed subs you have heard that were insanely loud to you. Pics would be great. A link works to.
