RL-p15 Box Part II (D2 with ol’ school cone)

Recommended Posts

I first built this box about six months ago. But when I slid in the box, I noticed that the back seat wouldn’t close properly (the mold had deformed with subsequent layers). At the time, I didn’t really care, since I had no time to repair it. But now that summer is slipping away, I've finally forced myself to reshape that side and fix that defect... as well as add a few other things...

 

Getting that nice fit, courtesy of body filler:

Disgusting, isn't it?

It was a war between man and carpet:

But I think I won:

And I carpeted the backside, this time:

I also moved my amps from beneath the front seats into the spare tire well. This freed up tons of leg room for the back seats. Of course, in order to do this properly, I had to fabricate a false floor, since the stock one was unsuitable. Ignore the hideous black paint job on the amp racks. (They're never visible.) And ignore the fact that I have only one mono Crossfire EQ. I bought a pair off eBay and only one arrived in working condition. However, I feel obliged to take this time and praise the wonderful customer service over at Crossfire. These EQs also shipped without the power plugs in the back (necessary to turn the **** things on, unless you want to solder your new purchase). One call to Crossfire had two plugs at my door in three days, free of charge. And when we hooked them up and found that one didn’t work, a second call gave us an RMA number to exchange the damaged piece for a brand new one. (Also free of charge, minus $8 shipping.) It was an absolute pleasure dealing with them.

Remember what I said about the paint? Oh, and ignore the messy wiring also:

I plan to carpet over that long plastic door at the base of the rear seats, but I ran out of materials. So next time.

Thanks, guys!

 

It's 2.1-2.2 ft^3 after displacments, and it sounds wonderful. I popped in some jazz after installing it (I'd been without the sub for over two weeks, while I was working on this), and just sunk back into the driver's seat for thirty minutes. ;) I mean, my K2Ps can put out some decent midbass, but these tracks just aren't complete without the bottom few octaves. And I've never heard a sub so accurately reproduce an upright bass as the RL-p. :)

XM-Alpine Adapter/Receiver For Sale - 750GB Ext. HDD For Sale

 

Offical Rep for Squeakco Inc.

There's a new sub out called the Squeakinator. 125mm Xmax. 25" cone. Able to kill small animals and annoying children. Plays flat to 1hz in-car.

$1,025 shipped to your door.

I think he should also consider the new Squeaksters.

Nobody's heard them. They aren't in production yet. There is no prototype even available. But he should still consider them. They will rock. I promise.

PS: The new Squeaksters will be a midwoofer addition to my subwoofer line, the Squeakinators

Amazing. Very clean. I love it:thumbsup:


Before poking fun at others at least learn to spell. I won't go into all the gammar mistakes!

 

Irony?

 

Your sig... Im trying to figure out if you think he spelled grammar wrong. Because, he didn't. ;) Irony indeed.

 

:wow:
