    Assuming your system was purposely placed above 15volts or does the amp auto draw +15volts? my voltage does not go higher than 14.6 and that's at startup. With current amp, I have dual runs of 0ga, would this be pointless to do same on a taramps amp? If not, id try and machine the dual 0ga copper adapter to fit the taramp. I'm still tripping on price lol.

    The prices are insane. I love to pay less but it just doesnt make sense lolol. I did read on a thread at work (different site) that the taramps can give so much power because they require higher voltage than most. I've seen some dyno test and they are from 12.8-14.8v, there's a lot of mixed reviews on them. I also read where a guy had 3 big amps at a meet or competition and his amp would switch to protect mode. He also claimed others at the meet/show had same issue. I think it was the Stevemadden forum. Same thread, some guy said it's common for taramps to go into protect mode and they blow easily. Have you personally ran taramp amps with success?

    I've read Taramps need more power/electrical, is this true? I also see the Power/Ground terminals look small vs. most amps, is this an issue? Im considering the Taramps HD5k for a pair of X15 v2's
  4. Does the amp power on? Does it have any fuses, might want to check those with a multimeter IF they don't look baked...

    Why send plans?... lol

    If hes not, I gave him a nice tip...
  6. Well that's the size I have so I'd like to use what I got. I don't plan on messing with the SA15 wires but I am starting to think things through for a pair of X15's or U-15's. Knowing I will have to deal with that headache, I would like to solve that issue now Lol. I don't have the amp yet but I'll be in the market for 4k (no more than 5k). Current 10ga is knukonceptz just in case their product is thicker for whatever reason. If buying 12ga would fix it, I'll just buy 12ga.
  7. Was it one SA or dual SA's? Wiring one SA should be fine. Wiring 2 in parallel was such a pain in the arse. More so when three wires needed to go into one terminal I wonder if we can swap out the terminals for some type of dual terminal. That would solve a headache imo.
  8. I have a pair of SA15's and I was told to shave down each wire till they fit... Not sure if this is the proper way but I don't like it. Is there a dual + & - adapter that will not pop out of the subs single terminal out there? I tried to search and google, since I don't know the term of the part, I am getting no where. Tyvm!

    Nice build bro. I have a guy from Offer up that purchased my X10 and he might want a cutout sheet and design. I'll keep you posted, waiting for him to reply.

    drop HZ on a box?

    I had a X10 and was not very happy with the sound. With that said, I later learned the port was made wrong and it's hard to compare a 10" to a 15". I am a bit scared to buy the x15's since I've never truly heard one and I've read people complain about the upper sound during songs where a song could be extra bassy and low volume when the hard bass is not playing (basically semi distorted). This is why I narrowed it down to the best of both worlds but I do love me some low tunning sound. After this build, I'm done with the Sounds Game so I'm taking my time buying the next set of subs.

    Fiberglass List

    Yeah, I plan to hit up Home Depot and check out the discounted wood section. I should be able to find a solid piece of wood for 2.00 (MDF will be backup)

    do i need good speakers for a sub?

    X2 @Jeffdachef to piggyback on Jeff's comment, you might want to keep stock stereo and speakers as most stock speakers work best with OEM stereo. Just add sub amp to OEM HU. Just an idea since you don't plan to get crazy loud. I would buy your friends stuff and sell them. If you are not trying to get loud, I would get a sundown shallowmount. Use the money to fund a sub and custom box. You keep space with a custom box and can maximize on sub sound. Sundown's shallow mount sound pretty damn good imo (had one in my frontier). If you are in SoCal, I might have a SD10 sub laying around if interested.

    Fiberglass List

    LOL haha. Sounds good, I'll grab that today. I did notice I left out the wood dowels, jig and Modelo Especial
  14. pair of SA's is my vote. more cone area is always better. Plus SA's can take a beating. I have a pair of SA-15's in a 2nd gen frontier and they get loud (I just want louder).

    Pioneer AVH-W4400NEX Android Auto and other issue

    When you say video play in motion, do you mean watch movies while driving? If so, you can buy a bypass for pioneers, it works, I have one. No need for parking brake. Can't help with the other issues but I would definatly call Pioneer and speak to someone. The unit might need to be sent to a local Pioneer service center or try and return it at BestBuy. You'll need to talk with a manager since its passed the 14 days if you plan to deal with BestBuy. Also, go to Pioneer info on HU and see if it has latest version
