  1. Ok, so then what is the cost I'm looking at?
  2. Gotcha. How much do you charge for them and do they come in different colors?
  3. So you ends will fit in a standard PVC tube then, right? Then why the different diameters? I guess the inner fits on the inside of the tube and the outer fits on the outside? What makes them for SQ, sorry but I don't understand. Will a 5" port be okay for only a 12" subwoofer? I guess it doesn't matter as long as the box is built correctly and you have the right port length to achieve the tuning frequency you desire I'm assuming. Recalibrate my brain if I'm going in the wrong direction please.
  4. Those are sweet looking!!! I guess you make them in different sizes and colors? What does SQ 125mm mean? Depending on my box I may use a 3 or 4 inch.

    Any one using Pioneer 2400NE

    Was going to go with the 80prs but decided on the touch screen for my daughters car since that would better suited her. She wouldn't understand all that one offers so I do have to sacrifice some audiophile stuff. But anyway, does it have good audio adjustments and setting abilities-thats more my thing cause I want to have the ability to tune it and make some setting choices for her depending on what type of music she's listening to. Also since she's an Apple user, how is the phone integration, pretty user friendly with voice text and calling in the hands free mode? I know it's only 4 volts out and my amp is capable of 6, but.does it give a.good clean and strong signal; I'm not going to be using a DSP.
  6. For sure more efficient. That's what I'll go with, plus you can have fun with design and paint it for accent or whatever.

    Need help chosing a SQ woofer

    Yeah the case is out of the price range due to the budget. $250 is where I really need to be.

    Anyone use the new Sony head unit MEX-GS820 BT?

    You're right I'll be amping it up using a NVX JAD1100.5
  9. Yeah, the groundshaker thing was just something I saw, that's all.
  10. Sorry about the bad typing, all thumbs on the phone you know. I love that box ... she's purty
  11. Lol ....for women. The Groundshaker thing was just something I saw while looking at stuff, I'll most likely build one. O was just reading see articles about porting and was wondering about differences and if people have seen better results going one way or the other. I was just throwing a few things out there for discussion purposes to see what feedback was out here and to have fun seeing what people's opinions, experiences, and ideas are.
  12. If the speaker sits in the center for asthetics the port will be off to the left or the right of it. So as you look at it you'll see the speak and the hole for the port, does that help?

    Are Groundshaker boxes any good?

    Yeah, sorry it's for a 2001 Toyota 4runner
  14. I've only ever built or bought a box with an Aero port. Since I've been looking at installing a new system I thought might try something new and go with a slotted port. I'm not sure what the advantages or disadvantages of using the slot port are. I've only "heard" they are a more "boomy" in their exhaust of air hence creating more spl? I know I'm probably wrong, but that's okay, that's why I am asking this question. Not sure of the benefit or if there is one, I'm sure there has to be or why not just keep using traditional aero ports, right? I do understand turbulence, port noise, friction, so those things we'll say aren't factored in-maybe they're not, I don't know. I'm not talking about a 4th or 6th order box, just a normal box with a slot port in it. I'm sure there is some debate about this and I'd like to see what's out there about this topic. This is all to help me build/buy a new box. Not sure what variables all go into the decision between the two or if the actual speaker is part of that. Let's say if need be for example sake without manufacturer preference, you have a quality 12" subwoofer that isn't really biased between spl or sq, a $250 dollar offering, you have the space for the box and it will be rear firing in a suv, that's all the information you get on this one. Have fun with it, I'm looking forward to seeing this debate/discussion.

    Which amp for Image Dynamics

    I've got an IDQ 10" and only giving it 460rms at 2ohms; I would recommend this one vs. the entry level. It's in a Camaro firing up at the back glass like a hatch back and it really does a number. I recommend getting the IDQ series, it's very musical and does thump pretty good and will take all that those amps can give. If you go on their website they've got the specs all listed there for each speaker. If I remember correctly it was a little awkward to find but it'll have everything you need and more. They give you 3 different scenarios of box sizes based on what you want out of the speaker. I called them, asked for the tech department, and the guy went over each box sizing, what it meant and how to "tweak" it to get the best out of it. I went with the largest ported volume to accomplish my goal. Also he unofficially told me what they could really take if I "happened" to overpower them. As you can see by my numbers I haven't, but that's only as of today....tomorrow may change things. If you're going with the pair get the IDQ's and use the Kicker at 2ohms.
