Default New sundown build

Welp, i got tired of the sa8v2, i did build a new box for it and it sounded 10x better, loud enough that im happy with it in the protege so i pulled out the sa12 in there. I found a second sa12 on CL for 120 and now im going to build a aero port box for both of them and stick them on 1200-1500 rms...

I can get 4.04 cuft back there before displacements, this is why i chose aeroport box. I can meet the 1.75 per sub after displacements. Barely, but i can. Lol. Probaby going with 2 4" ports and maybe doing the box in either black, red, or mossy oak. I might be picking up a pioneer gm9106, it does 1200rms at 1 ohm and actually has great reviews and does a little over rated, hes asking 120. Hopefully i can get it all together by next week!!!


Ooh, and it anyone wants a jl 12w7 with a box for 250 in tulsa, and that was his first price. I just gotta get a amp right now. Lol

Looks like a nice box. I hate the boxes available for the CC Rams. Almost everything I've found requires the rear seat to be raised. Mine is currently and it causes a couple of issues that I would love to get rid of.

What kind of issues, just for the comfort of the passengers?

And i was happy with it, it helped that comp out ALOT and sounded so much cleaner.

I got the pioneer amp, its hooked up in my car on my 8" untill i can find time to build the box, it doesnt seem to have quiet the punch the zx750 has, and its rated 800 @ the 2 ohms its on right now, but pretty damn close. Ill have to wait and see how it sound wired 1 ohm on the 2 12s. Still cant complain, i paid 120 for it like new with the protective plastic still on it. But it hasnt shut off or got warm on a hr trip so thts a plus!!!

Oh, and i picked up a kenwood 640 4 ch amp for $20 bucks for my mids, says it does 60rms @ 4 ohms per channel, even if its not quite that, itll be an improvement and worth the 20 bucks i think

If anyone is taller than an average adult male, it feels cramped. The main issue is that it causes the receiver for the seat belts to be very short and sometimes hard to reach.

I finally got around to starting a box of my own after building one for someone else...again....lol.

This is what I got done so far...I just got to trim up half inch on the last piece and I'll be done, then I'll be putting some black carpet on, painting the aero port(heated flared and sanded PVC..lol) red to my truck, and I got the idea to throw in the red LEDs that I've had forever insids facing up thru the ports...I think this is gonna be pretty badass when I'm done!!! whatcha think so far??

Inside



And here's a pic of the second one I did for a 02 Silverado. 1.75cu ft 35hz and fit great behind that lil space behind the seat of that truck. He didn't want his carpeted.
And don't pay any attention to my buddy in the back....lol

It looks great! Any way you could use all of that space between the subs as amp space?
