Recommended Posts

u do? How u liking those amps? Also do u have urs wired below 1 ohm? And no, highly doubtful that I  am feeding them more than 1500watts rms on stock alt. Can only turn head unit up to 15 outta a possible 28 before distortion. Anything over 15 and voltage drops way to low. Like down to 11 or more.  15 is thw sweet spot until I  can get some lto cells. 

They definitely weight more than 30lbs. I'll have that amp rack out soon.  I'll put them on the scale with a handtowel between. At least 40-50lbs. I can't seem to find their weight on wolfram sight,  u?

I have those same amps. 30 lbs at most, nowhere near 50.

Found the weight on SSA sight. Damn, my guestimation is spot on. Lol

So your electrical is starving. Nice. Audio 1st before any electrical upgrades.

Well damn. Idk, these amps feel heavier. They are nice. I really like them. 

I know. I need better electrical, actual just one h/o alternator would do, but I  have a chevy cavalier and just don't wanna buy  an expensive alternator (270amp I  was thinking) cuz I  don't  plan on having it much longer. The lto cells I  want, but again gotta sell some old stuff before I  can dump the money on it. Or tax time maybe.  That's all my electrical needs is one or the other. Either way I'm looking at around $500 more. Need to sell my old electrical and subs n boxes first. 

All in all though. I'd say I  haven't done very bad after only starting my car audio passion since Jan. of 2017. 

Nxt I  want to learn to recone subs and troubleshoot and fix amps. But first I  am fine tuning my box building. Still curious on ports on them, thickness to watts and different kinds.

Oh I gotcha, taking it easy until you can sell it for another vehicle.

Bass hits and box moves around the trunk.

Different wood isn't going to fix that, what you need to do is figure out a way to firmly secure the box to the floor of the vehicle if you want it to stay put.   That box looked sound enough with the bracing and all.  If panels are flexing add more bracing or double wall that side, if it's just the box itself moving work on bolting it down somehow.   IF you do redesign figure out how to leave yourself room to mount the amp not on the box.
