icweiner

Galant wall, 10 obsidian 10's ported 2 7kw amps. ;)

Recommended Posts

any expectations as far as a # goes? and any ideas as to what it's doing now, in your ear's TermLab?

 

Idk man, ive never had a car that plays that high. It hurt even at 55 hz, it was like a whole body hurt lol, a 151 or so at 35hz just hurts your ears. This HURTS. Im gonna say over a 152 at the headrest. Outlaw usac style i bet its 153+ easy. its not made for numbers either, port on the bottom is good for daily. My car just has no deadning in it at all. So hopefully the resonance will lower when i deaden it.

 

Me and my bro ride in vehicles that do 151's or so on a daily basis and this is on another level.

 

I cant wait to put some real money in this thing and do hdc3's on like 16kw. Gonna break ****. :D

You sure that baffle isn't flexing? Might consider putting another layer on the front. If you flush mount the subs you lose nothing and gain more strength (plus flush mounting usually gains on the meter).

I didnt see any flex. Ill have to look closer next time i test it. I was really just listening to it this time.

 

Id rather put 3 big pieces of all thread on the front hooked to the back. Honestly i hate working with glue and wood. Metal is more my thing.

 

But like i said the face seemed solid, there is so many subs so close to each other on the face i think they add bracing. Every other side has a 2x4 bracing it so i think they are good.

 

My car has never played lows worth a crap and ive had 3 trunk systems in it. So idk maybe the resonance is just really high.

Hmmmm. After some reading it seems i should gain on the lows if i get it sealed off better. So im gonna check the whole wall out tomrrow for leaks. Its seams really sealed tight now though, itll make the sunroof move from pressure shutting the front door with the trunk and back doors open so idk. Might brace the side walls better and see that helps. I really dont wanna tune it lower because i like the way the highs sound now.

 

Well more testing, ill see what happens tommorrow.

Ive had setups where the highs murder but the lows just dont have the same intensity at all. Its great being beat to hell and not being able to see but it leaves such a void without the stout low end

Then obviously I am asking the wrong person, because you don't know how to hook up subs if they sounded like "shit". Maybe learn your ohms and your diagrams before you call something shit. Learn to make boxes to specs and use the right wires and its called dynomat. Then maybe your car wouldn't of sounded like shit, yeah?

Ssf was off. Yea both door open ******. Never tried both windows down or sealed up. I did the frequency testing with 1 door open.

 

Idk maybe these subs just act different. I know when ive switched from sdc 2.5 to hdc3's in the past in the same box it played and sounded lower. Box, wall and car still need alot of work so ill see if i can get the lows. Gonna glue a brace to help the window flex too.

 

Finally decided on amps, going with crescendo symphony's. Gonna order 1 for now and see how it does at .5 ohm. If it isnt protect happy and stays decently cool ill order 3 more.

Yep. Played it full tilt on like 25hz no prob. Subs were probably seeing 500rms a piece. Not enough to bottom them out. If i put like 1k per sub on it like i want id set it up.

No updates yet guys. Got 1 out of 8 amps im gonna run though.

 

Kicker cx 1200., beast *** amp, clamped 1253 watts at 10.5 volts wired @ 1 ohm rising to 2.2. Voltage was a rundown batt just to test lol. So 8 of them ill be seeing 8kw clamped EASY with no clipping.

 

Going to run 4 hx400 batts, 8 cx 1200.1's @ 1ohm and a maxx link to hook them all up. About to order a new HU and a steve meade CC1 to set it all up, going to run that new steve meade clipping indicator too since kicker amps dont have one.

reviving this thread. sold the car like it is to my buddy. he hooked up 2 aq3500.1's strapped @ 1 ohm on it and it plays LOW. peaks at probably 33 hz.

 

I imagine it's doing a 155+ at the headrest. will have vids and meter score soon. oh, it does epic hair tricks too. in the near future he plans on 8 hdc3 10's on 4 3500.1's and 160's :veryhapp:

That build isnt going to do a 160. Not trying to be a ****, but it doesnt have a 160 in it.

You guys are probably right. We'll see what it does at the moment and then we can properly assess what its got in it.

 

We meter at the headrest btw not the dash or kick.

Did some work on the car, has 9 deka batts and 8 hdc310's and 8 shark 2500's @ .5. Car needs a lot more work but with no testing did a 157.8 at the headrest and 158.8 in the kick @ 41 hz.

 

Car is brutal and plays insanely flat. Broke the first windshield in 10 min lol sunroof didn't help. Buddy has a setup that does 158 in the kick with a 4 18 wall and they sound nothing alike, this thing kills.

 

 

He has it on the meter now to get close to that 160 for slamology.
