  2. I'm not saying that Rockville sucks by any means. Let me start off with that. However, I am going to say that Rockville is by far unable to accept judgement or constructive criticism. If you haven't been following them, let me fill you in on what has been happening. About a year ago, a YouTuber by the screenname of EXOContralto bought one of their K9 subs. It was a 12" D2 DVC sub, put in a custom built bandpass ported box, with specs nearly perfectly matching the sub's airspace rating. The sub was not overpowered, it was wired properly, and the whole install was done exactly how it should have been. It was broken in before any music was played (which is not actually required, but can be a good idea for maximum performance. I have a set of Skar VD 12 D4 subs and I didn't break them in at all before using them. They were hooked up to a Skar RP2000.1D amp that is overpowering them already, sending 1000 watts RMS to a 750 watt max sub and the subs are sounding great still to this day. I blew up the amp by accident as the gain knob came unplugged sending 2000 watts to the subs, and they are still doing just fine they are now hooked up to a old school Precision Power ProMos 50 Art Series. Gotta love old school PPI amps. So clean.) and the day it was installed, the sub was blown. Now, I will say that Rockville was very quick to put out a revised version of this sub called the K9v2, a year later. Props to Rockville for seeing a problem and making an attempt to fix it. Shortly after, EXO purchased the v2 and started testing. Again, EXO did everything right. The sub blew even faster than the first one did! After the testing, he stated that Rockville has a good sound and the build of the sub was good, but that they needed a little more work on the coils and then they would have it down. Not a bash right? Well that's not how Rockville saw it. They not only said that it was EXO's fault that the sub was blown, and for COMPLETELY invalid reasons at that, but then proceeded to bash him and his channel! Rockville claimed that their subs are CEA compliant and are meant to matched with an amp's CEA rating. Well if you look at the the video yourself, you will see the name of his video which shows that he had a 1000 watt amp hooked up to it, 1000 watts below the RMS rating of the sub, and 3000 watts below the max rating of the sub. This is the exact compliant wattage for the CEA rating of the subwoofer. EXO with one point, Rockville with zero. Their next reason was that EXO tested the sub in free air and not in a box. If you know anything about boxes, you will know that a ported box is the equivalent of free air testing when we are talking about resistance and back pressure on the sub. You will also see on the Rockville website that the sub has a ported box size spec. Again, this point is now invalid. So then Rockville claims that the sub blew because of a test tone. They then claimed that "any sub, ANY sub will blow after more than 30 seconds on a test tone." WRONG! Literally all three of their main reasons they claim EXO messed up are invalid and far fetched. EMF audio tested their cheapest sub they make on a test tone on an uncut, unedited livestream. Their Lowballer subwoofer was hooked up to an amp that was very capable of pushing WAY more than the RMS and max wattage of the sub. He started with an RMS test on a test tone, playing 63 hertz (The most difficult test tone for a subwoofer to play) for ten minutes straight. Then without giving it a rest or time to cool down, he threw 1000 watts at it for 5 minutes. Then without giving it a rest or time to cool down, he threw a whopping 4000 watts at it for another round of 5 minutes. Then without giving it a rest or time to cool down, he played music on it for 10 minutes at 1000 watts. He then proceeded to let a 63 hertz test tone play at 1000 watts for an hour straight, livestreaming the whole time. Sundown Audio then pushed 4000 watts through an SA subwoofer (also their bottom line) with a 63 hertz test tone for a solid ten minutes. Keep in mind this sub is only rated for 250 watts RMS. Both the Sundown and the EMF are still in functioning order after both test. As if that wasn't enough, sundown then stripped the sub down and pulled the coil. The coil never went above 110 degrees celsius. The world of car audio started to take EXO's side, doing things like buying the rockville subs just to BURN THEM IN BARRELS!!! Rockville retaliates. They buy a sundown subwoofer, hook it up to a cheap, crappy amp, sending lots of dirty power through it, simply to blow it up. Sundown now has every right to lash back, but they reply with "we don't agree with the testing methods or the quality of the amp that was used in the test." Not bashing Rockville at all, but just stating that they don't agree with their methods. I decided to do some research myself, and so I went to YouTube, since that is where the beef began. I typed "Rockville K9v2" into the search bar, and I found that the first things that pop up are all something along the lines of exposing cheap subs or blown subs or something of that nature. Rockville is literally having subs blow left and right on the RMS power and even less than that, the CEA power, yet they are bashing EXO and Sundown? Seems to me like Rockville needs to do some work on their products. I then started searching for the Rockville audio forum, and that was when I discovered they are one of the only car audio groups without a dedicated forum on their page. I wonder why! (Sarcasm in case you were wondering) This just adds to the case against them, and makes me chuckle if they can't even have a forum to help their customers with their products that are malfunctioning so quickly. I would definitely say that Rockville Audio is not only in need of a remodel to their voice coils, but also a remodel on how they handle criticism and competition. Rockville, if you are reading this, the world of car audio is very disappointed in you. Not for the low quality subs that you are producing. All companies have to start somewhere and make improvements. Even Skar audio, the world record holder for SPL currently at 179 dB, has had flukes in their products. We are disappointed at your lack of class and poor judgement. Get it together Rockville.

  5. Just finished my amp install (brand new memphis prx1000.1 mono) and was going to wiring my Two 4ohm dual coil Sundown Ev3 10" subs in parallel to achieve 1 ohm this morning. After speaking with the authorized dealer for almost an hour yesterdsy, he made it pretty clear that he was sure sundowns love the airspace. And that my sealed underseat box (forward facing twin Chambers w/ 2.33 inside cu ft before sub mount) would work great. After installing everything I get ready to tune my amp and just barely adjusting till clipping and rattles begin to which I backed off immediatly. I have not even played an entire song through them. I pull the subs to check everything out and test the impedences on every coil and am reading a steady 2 ohm across the board. I wish I would have thought to do so before ever evening wiring them. So my question is did I just ruin my brand new subs before I even got to play a song? I can barely even have the gain turned up a hair from being completely turned off. Is this all due to my enclosure size or what? Other notes -memphis 4gauge install kit used -Memphis was ran in left hand side race way, audio and turn on in passenger side raceway. -Have not turned abused them by inpulsive amp maxxing. -After whiting subs in parrelell I tested the wire ends before connecting to amp and couldn't get anything other than 0 impedence. Any input would be great, did I kill after the ohms of my subs? Would that short time testing trying to mess with settings and figure out the problem be enough to do this to my subs. I'm going to add extra walls in my box to achieve .5 cu ft like the specs recommended but worried I won't be able to achieve my 1ohm goal now. Thanks.

  7. What's good? New here, but I'm no rookie to the Bass scene. I've been a Bass-Head since the days of Pyle and EV. I fell out of the game for a few years, but I have always spectated on Youtube to see other builds and try to take note of new designs and products. I'm am more than ready to get back into the game, it's been calling me. I see these brutal, hair-trick, spl vehicles on the Tube and I just feel like I'm missing out. I will be purchasing a Sundown X-15 V.2 D2 in two days and I have run into so many promising amplifier choices, I have seen dozens of Dyno tests on almost every amplifier on the market, and I'm just stuck lol. Never had a problem deciding on an amp before, but I want to do it right this time and I need opinions. Now, before I touch anything in my 2008 G5, I'm going to attack my electrical system from front to back, the biggest, purest, OFC wire I can run, will be running throughout. I even got my eye on some welding cable ( I'm serious) I don't want even a grain of voltage drop. I just found an installer that owns a shop blocks away from me and he knows his stuff I mean he breathes the stuff and does pro work. I've seen his box builds and he gets down. That's going to be a big help to get me back started. He'll be building my enclosure for my Sundown when I get it. I've looked at a lot of amps, everything from, Orion, Skar, DC Audio, Soundstream, Crescendo, Sundown, Deaf Bonce, and many others. My thing is, I haven't heard any of these products in person. I've seen reviews, I've seen the video, but I haven't heard any of these in person sadly, but I know a lot of you guys have. Taramps are even getting my attention, but it's something weird about an amp so small that puts out so much power, how they store big enough components inside those Taramps to support the current and heat is beyond me, but I see them in a lot of competition builds. I'm looking for something in the 3k - 5k RMS range. I know the Sundown X-15 is rated 1500 watts RMS, but I like to leave headroom for box rise and other adjustments, plus, we all know Sundown subs can handle almost three times it's rated RMS. I'm very mindful of my gains and levels also and I will have all levels professionally tuned and adjusted before any serious demos take place. I'm going to get a few secondary XS Power batteries to run whatever amp I get, just to see what it does and if I get even a whisper of voltage drop I'm going to slap a Mechman on it. I'm going to get one in the long run anyway so. Any experienced suggestions on a nice professional amp will be highly appreciated. Going to pick up a Pioneer DEH-80PRS this week also that way I can start off with a clean 5 volt signal to the amp. This is just my back in the game set-up. I'm looking for a used Tahoe or similar that I can build a wall in but one thing at a time. I'm going to do it right this time, pics, videos and updates coming soon.

    Sundown E-15 or American Bass TNT1544

    I'm looking to put two (somewhat cheap) 15's in my Taurus. I mostly have experience with Rockford Fosgate, Cerwin Vega, CT Sounds, and Skar. I've never had any experience with Sundown or American Bass, but I know they are good quality. Nothing is set in stone, so if the American Bass is a better option, I'm happy to buy a bigger amp. The only issue I have is that I cannot seem to find any information on what size of enclosure the American Bass subs need. Any response is helpful, just trying to make a decision I won't regret. I want the loudest and bassiest I can get without spending upwards of a thousand dollars.

    Help! Sub not acting right. Is it blown?

    Okay so I’ve had this Sundown Audio SA-10 v2 in my car for about 1-2 years. It’s been running at 1000 watts rms which is 250 over spec however everything I read up on said these subs could take way more than that. Anyways here in the past few days the sub had been cutting out making very little autible noise in the cab of my car. However it’s still moving and I’ve attached a video of what sound it makes. Thought Maybe tinsel slap or something of the sort? Don’t think it’s overpower and topping out because I’ve ran it exactly like this since I’ve had it. Could it be blown? I’m going to test impedance tomorrow and will update just looking for a quick response If anyone knows what this is. 4D4E29B8-1524-44E0-A390-13CCCD33BA21.MOV
  10. when u get your sound system all hooked up what is the first to last step on tuning your system? i found some people tune the amp then the cd player is that right?
  11. Looking to bang but have limited space. 2015 Dodge Ram Crew Cab. Wanting to run 2 12’s off a Rockford T1500-1. Ready, go.
  12. Hi, this is my first post on this forum and was hoping to get some help in designing my first ported sub enclosure. I have built boxes for subs before but I usually just followed the manufacturers suggested design, this time around I am in a tighter space so I have been stuck with the task of designing my own. The sub is going to go in the trunk of my 2013 WRX which has an unusual 2 level trunk(pictured below) that I am trying to save as much room as possible in. Sub will need to go on the upper level to the left of that little white box you can just barely see. I plan to make a false bottom that follows the angle down so that I can make the enclosure deeper. Dimensions available are about 24 inches wide 12.5 inches tall and 14 inches deep. I was hoping to be able to fit a sundown sa 12 but from what I read it would probably be better to go with 10" at this size of box if I want to stay ported(I do). I plan to power the sub initially with a polk d1000.1, because I have one laying around and should power the D2 version well at 1 ohm. I have been playing around with RE's box calculator and wanted to know what you guys thought of the design I have so far. I think I have the math right to where after displacements should net me about 1.25 cu ft @ ~33 hz. My real confusion lies with the more technical stuff like port length and size. I mostly listen to rap/hip-hop with some rock and folk mixed in. I hope I have given enough information so that you guys can help me out :) Thanks ahead of time!
  13. I wanna know how to calculate this volume effecitently and accurately. Everything you see I’ve done myself! Everything is 2 layered 3/4 mdf so far. Back wall is also thinker than the 1 1/2. Because of 2x4 bracing. This car has every bit of 200$ in foam. Just to keep from splitting body panels. Thanks for all your help guys any advice info would be awesome I definitely should have been on here sooner but I can update photos and share progress through out the whole build. Plan is 2 zv5 18s on 1 Subdown 7500 or 2 saz 3,500 lmk what u think appreciate it! Also looking for another saz 3500 if anyone knows where I can get one! I have one already. Stay bassin ☝?
  14. I have a 2003 PT Cruiser Turbo, it has a stock 136 or 150, conflicting information I have found there. Big Three is getting done tomorrow and I have a new stock battery. I am looking to get the Soundqubed Sa-2250, I am reading and getting conflicting information on whether my car can handle that, I don't drive a lot and don't listen super loud all the time just occasionally, What are your thoughts on how my car would do with this setup? The amp will be driving two Sundown SA-12's 2 OHM DVC subs running at 2 ohms, unless you think I can run at 1 ohm and be safe.
  15. Hello everyone, brand new to the site and excited to start learning. Anyways... I just bought a 2018 Camry XSE with the crappy base sound system. I want to put a sub or 2 in the trunk corners ( preferably just 1 but I'm open to 2) in fiberglass box. I've seen these sealed and ported. My question is what size sub to put in, I prefer sundown but don't know if the small fiberglass custom box is made for this type of sub. Would 1 x8 sound good with that little of space or do I need a sd10 or 12? Anyways I don't know much about fiberglass boxes but I want as much bass as possible while still sounding good. Can someone please recommend what size/type that would work best for this. I am open to the fiberglass box being larger than the normal flushmounted kinds. A big bulky bubble tucked in the side is fine. I'm open to all suggestions that don't take up my whole trunk. Thanks, G

    Sundown sa12 d2 vs d4??

    Ok I need some advice. I plan on getting a pair of sundown sa12 but don’t know if to choose the d2 or d4 I also plan on getting the sundown sae 1500d Can some help me and tell if this is a good setup! Thanks .
  18. Hi, new to this forum, so sorry if this is posted in the wrong place. Anyways, i recently bought a 2006 Chevy Silverado 1500HD and since i've had subs in every vehicle i've owned, i can't stand not having them now haha. So i am looking at putting 4 8" subs under the back seat in a ported box. Looking at 3 different set ups, 1) Rockford Fosgate P2D2 or D4 8s along with a P1000x1 or P1000x2 amp from RF as well. 2) Sundown Audio E8 V.5, but i'm not sure which amp, i've been told i could run the E8 D2s on a SAE-1500D @ 1 ohm and that would be my best option with those subs. 3) Sundown Audio SA 8s, but again, i don't know what ohm subs i should buy, D2 or D4, or what amp i should run with those. Any help would be appreciated!
