  1. This. That's the downside to round ports. But I like throwing a big flare on them if I'm borderline on port area. I know that's how all my boxes go, one compromise for another. But I also try to go for the max in a given area as well...
  2. Could be as simple as a gain problem on the amp. ie gain turned up too high. Try turning it down some and see how it does. Hows the amp get signal? Aftermarket radio or line out converter? If a line out converter, then the gain on it could be too high as well. I have ran subs on 4ch amps many times. Usually doesnt pose a problem. When your broke, and only have 1 amp, gotta use it the best you can lol.
  3. See I'm the opposite. I can build whatever I have in my mind... but I cant always draw it in sketchup. When I built my custom center console for my yukon, I drew it probably 75% close to what it came out to be. But the final product turned out way better. Same thing for my new sierra, I know how to build the box I want with all the curves, but drawing it to spec isnt going to happen lol... Now your standard rectangle, or angled, or similar box I can draw and build. Example below Console https://imgur.com/gallery/aPhaKYJ Console https://imgur.com/gallery/cE9udMD

    6.5 midrange recs

    Oh I have read countless tuning tutorials, even got REW and a UMM1 mic. Just never had the time to pull it apart, rewire and then spend a couple days tuning. Simple as that. Also never bought a second 4ch to bridge it all active. But I sold that car a couple months back, so on to a new build lol

    6.5 midrange recs

    That was my concern with going active. Really didnt want to spend a few days on all out tuning sessions. I was pretty happy with the time alignment and eq results from my pioneer double din. So passive worked for me. You need to check the specs on the crossovers, some like that are 5k or 7k hz and that's really too high for flutes.

    If I recall it the crossovers were 18db at 3500hz. I would run active on the T600 if I were you. Or find some passive crossovers and run the fronts bridged on that amp

    I ran the silver flute 8s 2 way with some vifa ring radiators. Ran passive with some cdt crossovers, never rewired for active. Powered by a T400-4 bridged so 225w per pair. Sounded awesome. My favorite setup to date and it was a budget setup. The flutes can take more power though. If your hanging with a large sub stage, your going to want a good 200w rms to each mid.

    Grille/ Guard

    Honestly I hate the bar style grills, the only thing they protect from is maybe a box or a suitcase. But if you have loose items or groceries back there, they will still hit the sub. That and I personally dont care for the looks either. I try to use the metal mesh grills from parts Express. But you usually have to flush mount the sub, and space the grill out a little. Looks great if you plan for it ahead of time though.
  10. What vehicle? Does it have active noise cancellation?

    Sundown lcs woofers

    Hahahah I know... atleast he has plenty of port area though!

    Sundown lcs woofers

    Hahahahaha I saw that earlier. Pretty sure that's one of the worst attempts at a box I have seen in a long time

    subwoofer noise

    I wonder if there is active noise cancelling on this car. That sounds like it could be the problem as it runs off engine rpm

    whats the best 6"-8" sub

    Awesome! Thanks alot! Pretty sure I will be going with these.
  15. YukonXL04

    Need help choosing a sub

    If you insist on running both amps run each amp at 1 ohm, and you will have some headroom so you wont be clipping your amps Again though. What electrical upgrades have you done to support 3-4k rms?
