Put a pair of sundown sa10v2 in and have since pulled them out. They sounded fine but the 3inch seat lift made it difficult to line up my 5th wheel hitch. Gonna do 4 6.5s next so I don't need a seatlift

Also pulled the Memphis viv mids out and swapped to the silverflutes 6.5mids.

It never ceases to amaze me how much performance you can get out of these $30 speakers. They blow the Memphis out of the water until you get above 3khz.

Definitely an authoritative midbass. I finally have what I would consider good midbass. I've got them playing 0-3khz right now because of my lack of subs and they play down low just fine.

Next up I think I'm gonna swap the Memphis viv tweeters for some DD at-28a ceramic domes. I've screwed up and accidentally sent pure base at 125w to one of the Memphis tweets and well it's gone now so new tweeters are required.

Idk what I want to do amp and sub wise.

I want some compact amps so I can mount them easily but I also want at least 2kw for the sub amp.

I like matching amps otherwise idk which direction I'm going.

Sundown SIA2500 is pretty compact. It's my installers new favorite line of sub amps.

Thanks for posting a build log and following up on it. This forum needs more build logs and less politics.

I agree, some of you guys just talk in circles though. I just try to stay out of the drama. Alot of older members aren't active anymore and most of the new members don't know how to research before asking questions

I don't think i mentioned it prior but it shows in the pic. I put aftermarket carpet in and removed the factory vinyl flooring. The aftermarket carpet had a heavy mass loaded vinyl backer on it.

This made legitimately the biggest difference in my sound stage I think so far. It quieted road noise significantly and reduced reflection distortion alot since carpet absorbs and traps stray sound waves.

I've also done the pcm bypass to control my alts voltage. It's set at 14.8v for the agms I'm using now but I can set it up to 15.5v

Don't know if I posed it before but I had a pair of DD 506 in a custom built box. It was a rushed build so it didn't look pretty but it sounded damn good.

This was the first time I had tried any of the 6.5inch subs and I was more than impressed.

1 cube at 36hz with a single 3 inch aero

Any of course we can't forget this isn't a show truck it serves a purpose. Dragging my RV around this country since I travel for work. Its never really spotless and super clean but it's a work truck
