    Which vehicle for a build?

    After a few months of bass my Durango is starting to fall apart. Rather than chalk it up as a full blown stereo rig yet and I am getting tired of the wife complaining about the various pieces that have fallen off or broken. So I am in the market for a project to build. Both of these vehicles are local to me. The Focus is an 02, 150k miles and good condition mechanically and cosmetically. The Tracker is a 96, around 200k, good mechanically but kinda rough cosmetically. From the research I have done it seems parts and work on the Geo may be a little more sparse and difficult. I currently have two Sundown U15s and am looking to add a 3rd. These would be ran off 6k or so. Limitless 80ah battery, XS Power Cap Bank and a new alternator on either one. Whuch gets your vote?
  2. So I just got my new box loaded up and wired. When I would turn the bass knob up the amps would go into protect. Equipment is 2 Sundown U15s d4 and 2 Wolfram 3000.1 strapped at 1 ohm. I have a 4 spot SMD terminal and my buddy helping me originally had everything parallel at the SMD terminals And then then Amp + to the + on speaker 2 vc1 and the amp - to the - on speaker 1 vc 2. I switched the Amp + to Speaker 1 VC 2 so the leads from the amps were going to the same VC on the same sub. After doing this it stopped going into protect. With everything wired in parallel should this have made a difference?

    JBL or Infinity subs

    JBL or Infinity subs

    If you are determined to get those pieces, one amp at 2 ohms would probably make more sense than 2 amps at 4ohms. Probably not with $600 to have a second amp. Use that money on box and battery, or upgraded door speakers with an Amp.

    JBL or Infinity subs

    Are you stuck on these subs and brands? For $1000/$1600(depending on if you are getting one amp or two) you could do soooooo much better. You could do a pair of FU750 12s for $380, wolfram 3000.1 for $380 with the coupon code and $200 towards a good box. You are at $960 for subs and an amp with more power than the 2 Kickers. The rest of the money could go towards electrical. There are tons of other choices in that price range...FI Alpha, used Sundown SAs or new Es and loads of amps as well.

    Kicker ZR600

    Probably within 50w either way.

    Kicker ZR600

    Most of the birth sheets on these were around 900w. They actually are rated higher at 4 and 2.66 than at 2. The idea was to run 3 of the single 8ohm Solorbarics on them. They are class AB and will pull a ton of current...horribly inefficient, huge footprint and wonderful sound...great example of 90s car audio. If you do not have some type of upgraded electrical it will wreak some havoc, especially at 2.66 or 2.

    Sundown U Series on sale Down4Sound

    Ha, be that true or not... Still a good price on a good sub and that is quick shipping. I have had great luck on everything I have ordered from there.

    Sundown U Series on sale Down4Sound

    Down4Sound has the entire line of U series on sale for the remainder of July. Picked up a pair of d4 15s for $299 each. Ordered at 1422 and were on a UPS truck within an hour.

    Best budget 2nd battery?

    I like my 80ah limitless But seriously...if you have a Battery Outfitters or similar in your area check with them. Before moving to lithium I had 3 refurbished Odyssey 2150s that worked great. They were around $70 each.

    Getting ready...Wolfram audio

    The swap to d4s will be the first move.

    Getting ready...Wolfram audio

    Strapped at 2ohm...power was at 6.5ohm after rise. The 80ah is more than enough. Currently on the stock alt it stays in mid 13s. My vehicle seems to be regulated at 14v as I have never seen it charge above that, now or pre stereo. I have a 370a CES alternator that should go in this week. Hopefully that keeps me in the high 13s or low 14s. The next step is d4 subs so I can strap at 1. Maybe a different box to try and offset the rise some.

    Newer Cars Can't Fit DIN Or Double DIN

    What features are you looking for out of a new radio? A good dsp/loc combo will get you what you need if you are looking to add amps. Some will have AUX/Bluetooth if you are looking for that.

    Popped a 150.5 @ 36 today, clamping right at 3k.
