  1. Do you own an Integra that didn't come with stock tweeters? That's okay! The only thing Acura didn't do was cut a small hole in the door. That is all. There are wires in the door for a tweeter, as well as a cutout where the tweeter would've gone. Step 1: Tools All I used was a sharpie and my WEN rotary tool (very inexpensive on Amazon) with a drill bit and then switched to a grinding stone bit. Step 2: Adios! Say goodbye to your old tweeterless door panel Step 3: Measure Tweeter If your tweeters didn't come with a template, measure them. Step 4: Drawing lines There's a small hole directly in the center of the cutout, this is where I centered the lines. TIP: Draw a circle around the lines! I didn't think of it at the time but it would've helped a lot. Step 5: Committed to the hole Using the drill bit, drill a hole through the panel and create a big enough hole to be able to use the stone bit. Go to town with the stone bit, carving away ONLY the plastic (Not the fabric), checking to see if the tweeter will fit every 30 seconds or so, don't stay in one place too long or your circle will quickly become oddly shaped. I didn't carve away the fabric in order to fold it back, giving the tweeter a tight fit. Step 6: Poke it in After a few minutes perfecting your circle, it should finally be just the right size to accommodate your tweeter. (Repeat steps 1 through 6 for other door ) Mission Success! In less than 30 minutes you can turn your lame-o non-tweeter door panel into a less-lame door panel, woot! For my build, I did not use the factory tweeter wires. I have speaker wire routed through the door grommets (NOT FUN) and into crossovers epoxied on the back of the door panel. Running off an NVX mvp4. -JJ30
  2. I can't afford full retail but I definitely want to upgrade. I currently have an HDS 315 on a soundstream 1600 watt amp. Thanks

    2 Hds315s help

    Have you heard of WinISD? It's a very helpful program that most people (to my knowledge) use to observe enclosure response. You must enter parameters specific to your driver, but once you do that, you can mess around with box style (sealed, ported, 4th, 6th), size, and tuning! Compare the response curves yourself and decide which fits your style!
  4. SoundQubed finally shipped out the HDS300's. If they hadn't, I would've taken you up on that offer.
  5. I really need to check this website more often!!
  6. Awwwww I was hoping it was used I wish I could afford a new XFL, they're awesome for the money.
  7. The backorder for the SQ sub I ordered series is killin' me! Anyone selling a sub comparable to a SoundQubed HDS315? Thanks!
  8. bbeljefe: I've taken what you've said into consideration, and peaky bass is the exact opposite of what I want. I'm going to go with the HDS315 unless someone convinces me otherwise, lol. Thank you, bbeljefe.

    my aftermarket system

    Maybe the capacitor is going bad? Does that even happen? lol
  10. Sorry I just re-read my post and I wasn't clear about that. I said "the OA seems more efficient" what I meant was the OA in it's specified enclosure seems more efficient than the SQ in it's specified enclosure. Disregard the woofers & enclosures for a second; would you be satisfied with either of those curves for daily listening? I might still be missing something, because I honestly just use WinISD as a tool, I don't know anything about the calculations it's making.
  11. Hey everyone, here I have 2 response curves plotted on WinISD. The white line represents an OA 15" in a 5 cu ft vented box @ 32hz, and orange is a SQ HDS315 in an 5 cu ft vented box @ 31hz. I'm no expert but, the OA in it's specified enclosure seems more efficient, but since it peaks at a higher frequency, wouldn't the lows be less dramatic in comparison the the SQ in it's enclosure? I hate the subs I am currently running... No impact under 40hz (they're cheap Kenwoods). I really want to move away from that. What I'm really asking: In WinISD, what's the optimal response curve for daily listening? Completely flat? Peak at a low frequency? Thanks!

    Need advice on purchasing a subwoofer.

    Although I don't have any personal experience with the Sundown X series subwoofers, they look like they can pretty much do whatever you want them to do... Lol. X Series

    Soundstream Rubicon RUB1.1600D

    I ran it while it was opened up, couldn't feel much airflow at all. & It's loud for like 10 seconds, then it get quiet.
