    Need ideas! Get Crazy!!

    Hi everyone! I have had a thread going on in General discussion about a new audio setup I would like to do. I am still a little bit of a noob but I am reading and learning as much as I can as I go along. Jeffdachef and a few others helped me out a ton on choosing speakers etc for my new setup. Well everything is already on the way and I am good to go in that department and will be starting my doors soon. I wanted to get some ideas from you guys on different sub locations other then the trunk. I have a Alpine Type SWR-1242D ( I am not opposed to going to another sub or size really as long as it will really fill in those low notes, but would be great using the one I have already ) that I am running currently and was trying to think of places other then the trunk itself for an enclosure. Now that my dad is disabled I really really need my trunk space for medical devices etc. So far I've thought about redoing my armrest area and extending it ( tearing out current one and making a new one from wood / fiberglass) to meet the back seats and using it as a sealed sub enclosure with some drink holders and other stuff that I would love to have in my armrest area ( phone holder, smoke spot, etc etc ). I have also thought about maybe the rear deck with an enclosure built underneath it that does not go all the way to the trunk floor but maybe like halfway or something like that. Another idea someone had mentioned was placing a sub or two in the actual seat cushion that your back rests against, with the rear of the speaker into the trunk free air. So I am looking for crazy ideas!!! I have tried looking up civic installs for my type of car but have not really found much. So.....Post your crazy ideas here please!! If you know someone who has actually done it or have pictures of examples, please share them!! Know someone that makes crazy boxes for cars in odd places? Let me know who it is!! Any info is good info! I do truly appreciate everyone's input! Thank you guys!!! My car 2005 Honda Civic LX 4 door The back seats fold down, one is the size of a passenger seat, the other is passenger seat plus the middle seat ( The parts that fold down ). I maybe have passengers in the back seat twice a year if that. I will try to attach some pics of the interior below. Wanted to post some pics of mine but it is pouring out at the moment so... Now I would prefer sealed as it doesn't require as much space, don't have to worry about a port, so can make some crazy shapes if needed and I do enjoy the tighter accurate sounding tones. But! Let me hear all of your opinions and ideas, even if they sound crazy! It may lead to giving me another idea lol!! I really want to do something different and unique with this if I can. I couldn't find a great rear deck pick, but the 01-05 models I believe are all the same.

    Which amp is best

    Hey guys, I'm in need of some help in the form of picking the right amplifier for my sub. It's pioneer TS-A300B with around 500WRMS @ 2 ohms, I'm looking to run it at about 300-350wrms, I'm thinking a monoblock amp because it's less stuffing around, I need an amp wthat has a LP Filter however . What would you guys suggest?, any and all help is greatly appreciated cheers

    Amplifier -- Sub -- PSU -- Speakers

    Hi, do you connect the amplifier to the 2 jacks (RED-WHITE) behind the radio and the sub do you connect it to the amplifier? having a 250w psu is enough for sub amplifier and a 2x 60w speakers? car radio aiwa 40Wx4 Thanks Regards
  8. I have 2 Kicker comp Rs in separate prefab enclosure. they can't hit low and are very peaky..im looking for a good box design with a big port in the middle. Ive looked around a lot online and haven't been able to find anything specific other than http://www.caraudiofabrication.com/box-designs . I would be willing to pay the 65$ for the box design but is it worth it? I can use all of my trunk space so size isn't an issue.

    DS18? Newbie alert

    Hey Audiophiles!! I'm looking to buy a fresh pair of subs and amp for my new car and came across these DS18, 2 12's with a built in amp, I'm on a bit of a budget but want to know what is right to look for! I figured this is the right place to come for help! https://www.amazon.com/DS18-BPX212A-Complete-Package-Enclosure/dp/B01LAXBKK4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1544320922&sr=8-1&keywords=BPX212A BPX212A Thank you
  12. I have two separate Kicker compR loaded enclosures, both 2 ohms 500 rms. I currently have one set up and am looking for a new amp to wire up the other, looking around i can't find anyone talking about how to wire this considering its an enclosure, i was wondering how they would be set up using a mono amp, or would i need a 2 channel? any help is appreciated thanks.
  13. Hello friends. My amp and sub setup in my trunk works well except that the amp overheats regularly. It's a 4-channel amp, so I have two options for wiring the sub: bridged and unbridged. When it's unbridged, it's weak but it doesn't overheat as much. When it's bridged it sounds awesome but overheats after a few minutes, depending on the temperature outside. At first I thought that the ground wasn't good enough, so I moved it to the one of the bolts on the rear strut tower and sanded down every surface until shiny metal. I also cut the ground wire down to 18" or less. It still overheats. Maybe I need a higher gauge wire? I went to this audio shop and this guy told me to try switching the sub from channels 1 and 2 bridged to channels 3 and 4 bridged. So I did. Not sure what it did. I also might need to tune the setup more accurately, but I don't know that that has much to do with overheating issues. My car (95 Civic if you're wondering) came wired by the previous owner for a subwoofer. 4 gauge power wire from the battery to the trunk, 4 gauge ground, and a remote wire and RCA cables from the radio to the trunk. Power and ground are both OFC. Back in April, I got a used amp and a sub and put it in my trunk. I don't know much about audio/electrical, but I'll list what I know about my setup below: The amp I got is a PlanetAudio 4-channel amp (I know it's meant for speakers, but it at least works for the sub and I got it for $50). Here it is. The sub is a Pioneer. Don't know the model number, but the reading on the multimeter at the terminals tells me it's a 4-ohm sub. It's a single voice-coil subwoofer. What I don't understand is what bridging does to the impedance of the circuit. From my understanding, you want to match the impedance as close as you possibly can. So, if my amp is 4 ohms, I want a 4 ohm speaker to match it. Does bridging channels 1 and 2 put the impedance at 2 ohms and make it unstable? Or does running the sub on 1 channel put it at 8 ohms and make it more stable? I don't quite understand. Another quick few things. I have no money, but I still appreciate advice like "get a new amp" or "get a fan to blow air on it" even though I won't be able to follow through with it until I pay for college. Advice concerning the wiring will be much more valuable to me. Thanks for the help, guys.
  14. Hello all, I work for a special effects company and we are interested in testing out a "hairtrick" on camera for potential use in an upcoming film. If you live (or know someone who does) in the Los Angeles area and have a set up capable of producing a "hairtrick," please send me a message! Thanks for your time!
  15. Dodger Charger 2016, 6 speaker alpine stock I wanna run NVX JAD 1200.1 amps with Dayton Audio RSS315HO-44 12" and i was going to have a custom ported box built. Was wondering if I should go dual 12" or just a single 12". And would the difference be that big? Also, what line out converter should I run? *4guage OFC knuconceptz wires*

    Subwoofer break in period 🔊

    hello everyone. I am new to car audio so I have a quick question. I just one kicker cvx 15 to pair with my alpine mrx m110 amp. I just got an email from kicker saying that they recommended 30 hrs of low bass or low gain play for break in. Is this true? Who breaks in a subwoofer? I thought this was a myth? What do u experience guys think ��?

    Subwoofer and Amp pairing

    Hello,I am completly new to setting up my own system and could use a little bit of help. I currently have a set of Alpine E type 10 inch subwoofers and I am a little unsure of what am to use with them. I have a polk audio pa880 and a pa660 which amp would be better to use for them? The pa880 is a mono amp that can hold two speaker at 4 ohms each. Would this make it a 2 ohm load or two 4 ohm loads? Each sub has an rms of 250 allowing me up to 750 watts am I right about this?
