  • About me
    Biggest bass head I have ever met. I truly have an unhealthy obsession with bass. Haven't met the guy, but EXOcontralto is the closest I've "met" to someone who's as obsessed with bass as me.

    Only problem is, I don't know **** about how it works. I can't build boxes, barely know how the wiring works, can't install worth ****...I just love skull crushing bass. I want to learn though. Haven't found anyone that's willing to teach me yet though. I feel like the best way to learn about the in's n out's of installing, building boxes, etc. Is to watch someone else doing it.

    Box builders near Fort Worth/Dallas?

    4 hours...****. That's quite a drive haha. I'll consider it. If I don't get any better offers I'll take you up on it. How long does it take you to build a box? 'Cause I don't really want to drive down to have you look at my sub/measure my trunk etc., then drive back home. Then drive back again once the box is finished. So if it's possible to finish it in a day that'd be awesome.

    Box builders near Fort Worth/Dallas?

    I want to get a new box built for my 18". Anyone around DFW (or within an hour and a half drive from there) build good boxes? For a decent price? Every box I've ever had built was $250 (whether I go to car toys or have a buddy build them) but there's gotta be SOMEONE who'll do it cheaper??
  3. I was at a comp a week or so ago and some of the guys told me about a store called Mr. Battery where I could get a good battery for like $70. I googled this place and couldn't find it though, so I don't even know if it exists. But if it does, if someone could tell me where the hell it is that'd be awesome lol. Also, since stores always charge ridiculous installation prices, could anyone help me install it for free? I'm sure it's not hard, but I'm remarkably dense when it comes to this ****.

    any basheads near ft worth??

    Massive Fort Worth basshead right here sir!
  5. I don't know the size of my alternator. I know it's pretty small, but I've been out of state for college since mid august without my car and I won't be able to take a look at it until next week. But I think I'll just go to a honda dealership and find out, I'm sure they'll know how to help me with that. And yeah I was thinking that finding a 200+ alt for a honda fit would be hard, and certainly not cheap....I don't know. I'll get the best alternator I can within my price range, and upgrade the battery as well. So upgrading the battery to that Shuriken is ok? Or should I go with like an optima yellow top? I've been told by many people that if I'm gonna upgrade my battery, the optima yellow top's are the way to go. And as for the motor on the sub, all I know is that the guy who made them has 4 of the exact same ones and he's pushing 4,000 watts to each. But that's not really important since I'm only putting 2200 to mine.

  7. Well I'm pretty sure the guy who made the sub said it was hx2...I could be wrong, but I know that he has 4 of the same ones walled off in his van running off of 16,000 watts. And I would like to get 2 of those batteries, but that's just out of my budget...could I get the two batteries and keep the alternator stock? I mean, I feel like that wouldn't be optimal, but would it be alright for a few weeks until I got the money for the alternator? I guess I just mainly want to know what's the best way to mix and match the alternator/battery situation for the first few weeks: stock alternator + upgraded battery up front + extra battery in back or stock alternator + upgraded battery up front + no battery in back or upgraded alternator + stock battery up front + extra battery in back or upgraded alternator + upgraded battery up front + no battery in back I mean, no matter which one I do I'm eventually gonna have upgraded alternator/battery and extra battery in the back, but I just wanna know which one would be less harmful to my electrical system.
  8. Ok so I don't know a TON about all this stuff, but I feel like I get the basic idea. I've done some research, asked around on websites, and talked to some installer friends, and I think I've put together a pretty decent system. I just want to see if all this would be ok? By the way, I have a 2010 honda fit (sport model) 1 X 18" custom-made subwoofer w/ rockford hx2 motor. ~4,000w RMS 1 X soundstream DTR1.2200 1 X 140 amp Delco Marine alternator 1 X Shuriken SK-BT100 (cranking amps-2250, Amp hours-100) in the trunk and stock battery up front. I'm iffy about the batteries because that's what I know least about....should I have one really powerful battery in the back? Or 2 pretty powerful batteries in the back? OR 2 pretty powerful batteries, one in the back, one to replace the stock? The problem is my budget though. I CANNOT spend any more than $100 more than what I have listed above.

    Sundown vs. Soundstream?

    My friend made it. He has 4 of the same ones running off of 16,000 watts. And yeah yeah I know it seems like i'm comparing "apples to oranges," but I know that certain brands are better than others. I previously had a 1600 watt lanzar amp for $120, are you (dragnix) saying that that ****** $120, 1600w lanzar is better than a ~$400 1200w sundown amp? I really doubt that.

    Sundown vs. Soundstream?

    I'm comparing them because i'm looking for a 2500-3000 watt amp, and a 3000 watt sundown is way out of my price range, but I've heard they're extremely reliable, so I thought a 1200w sundown might be better than a 3000w soundstream. You people need to learn to read....

    Sundown vs. Soundstream?

    and what are you talking about "mixing different amps powering the same sub"? Soundstream VS. Sundown. I'm trying to pick between the two.

    Sundown vs. Soundstream?

    Ok well my questions still stands. The sundown is more expensive and supposedly less power.

    Sundown vs. Soundstream?

    I'm looking at a Soundstream DTR1.3400D and a Sundown SAX-1200D to power my 18" with 4,000 watts RMS. I don't think i'm ever going to be able to fully power it because of the car I have, and i'm on a budget, so I found the sundown for $630 and the Soundstream for $350. The Soundstream says 2200W @ 1 ohm, and the Sundown says 1200W @ 1 ohm. But seeing as how the sundown is considerably more expensive, I was thinking, even though it puts out less power, if maybe it's more reliable than the Soundstream that puts out more power? Which one should I get? Side note: the soundstream is also 3400W @.5 ohms, but idk much about amps and stability and all that crap, is that dangerous to have it at .5 ohms?

    Yo James, so unless I sell the subs I have by then, i'm not gonna have the money to afford that 18 by this show, but you still gonna let me rock it for the day?
