I have installed systems before... But unfortunately they have been in cars with plenty of trunk space!! This time I need help which is why after countless and reading forums and blah blah blah. So I am asking for help with what to buy. I am installing a brand new system in my truck 2011 Silverado Regular Cab.. I am redoing the whole thing Head unit, Door speakers, Back Speakers, Subwoofer (1 or 2) still in a toss up. I only have $750.00 and would like to have a little left over.
Any advice/ criticism would be great!
The only problem I am really running into is what brand, how many subs 1 or 2, and how do I put it behind my seat as in build my own box or buy a prefab.
O and im sorry in advance if this thread has already been started somewhere else.
Just purchased 2 SA 10's and wanting to go ported.
I have a little 1994 ford ranger regular cab that I use for work. I want to build a custom enclosure for behind the seats, but I really need help with the design. I have 2 Audiobahn AW1000q subs that I would like to put in the enclosure.
Here are the specs on the subs:
Size 10 -inch
Impedance 4 ohms
Cone Material Non-pressed pulp
Surround Material Foam
Ideal Sealed Box Volume (cubic feet) N/A
Ideal Ported Box Volume (cubic feet) 1.632
Port diameter (inches) 3
Port length (inches) 8
Dual Voice Coil Yes
Sensitivity 91.1 dB at 1 watt
Frequency Response 23 - 500 Hz
RMS Power Range (Watts) 50-600
Peak Power Handling (Watts) 1200
Top Mount Depth (inches) 5 1/4
Bottom Mount Depth (inches) N/A
Cutout Diameter or Length (inches) 9 5/16
Vas (liters) 29
Fs (Hz) 30
Xmax (millimeters) 12
I have bucket seats with no center console and I am tall, so I would like to have the subs mounted close to each other so that I don't have to have one of them behind my seat. Rarely does anyone ride in the passenger seat so I can pull it forward as much as I want. I was thinking that I would like to mount them close to each other behind the passenger seat area and have one port facing the driver's side. I want it to be as loud as possible too.
I know that there are a lot of posts about single cab truck enclosures, and believe me I did read probably all of them. I didn't find the answers I was looking for, so hopefully you guys will help me out... I got the subs for free from a friend so I figured I'd use them. I am open to suggestions though, and I have a used Kicker SX900.2 that is fully functional that I would trade for some higher end subs. Thanks a bunch everybody.
I finally made up my mind to keep my truck that's paid off and put some bang in it! I have a 2004 single cab silverado that I currently have 2 12 shallow 12s behind the seats. Honestly they just aren't cutting it anymore so I need your help designing a full out spl system. I am on a very tight budget and I am working with a very small space (im 6'5") so it's going to be a challenge. I can build the box to your recommended specs and I can do the speakers however you think. What I'm looking for is 100% SPL, I could care less about sq. I can post any demensions that y'all ask me for. I have a decent pioneer head unit and wire but I would like new speakers box and amp, also possibly an epicenter if you guys think that's a good idea. I have about $450 to spend on the speakers and amp. I don't think there is a way to fit full sized 12s but possibly 2-3 10s if you get creative??? To be honest I'm very new to this but I've been around systems all my life, just never involved in the technical part. I would appreciate any and all help and feel free to ask more questions if I left out any needed info.
Ok. So for my fifteenth birthday, my parents bought me my second vehicle. Well, I say my second, but the first was an old junk Foxbody Mustang that I hoped to restore. So as my Daily, my dad found a 2000 Ford Ranger. That's cool. It's the one year only color, Mandarin Copper, it has just enough chrome to be nice, but not ghetto. The only problem? It is a single cab! So, when I started talking to my girlfriend, and her dad, who both are serious about their systems (She has a Sundown X-12, and he has an RE Audio XX18) He had a Rockford Fosgate P2D2-12 for sale, and offered to cut me a deal on it because I help him out on different things all the time. He said if I gave him $50, he'd sell it to me and build me a box to fit it in my truck. I was doubtful, but I figured if it ended up not fitting, I could at least sell it for $75 and make my money back on it. Well, he came through, and built me a sealed box for the 12, and that's when I realized that the cheap crap that I called a Dual amp was blown. So, when the next project came around, he offered to buy me an amp from his brother, who also was into car audio. We put a Rough Country 5 inch lift on his 2010 Jeep, and he bought the two amps that his brother had. Well, when I finally installed one, it didn't work. So I tried the other one, and it worked, but it distorted terribly, and only one of the two channels worked. So he offered to buy me a brand new Hifonics HFI 1000.1D, and even gave me some new 4 Gauge Power and ground, and a set of RCA's.
