Ported box can get 1 octave deeper or 3 db louder. From my understanding im sure its a lot louder than that depending on how its tuned, cuft of box and the other factors as far as speaker and amp.

Why are you asking if 3 will sound better ported or sealed you already said you have 4 MA's in a ported box.

Uhh, P-unit, whats your frontstage?

P-Unit94
05-23-2006, 08:13 PM
Im gonna take a wild punt and guess that frontstage means front speakers...

I got some JBL 5*7s in the front doors and a kenwood KFCW1202 DFC 12" Sub in the boot. With a new season Pioneer Head Unit with aux input for the iPod.

I am having some sound deadening issues with my doors and boot lid, anyone have any tips on what sort of insulation to use. The rears on the rear dash are fine coz i fixed that up, as you've seen on the pic.

Any tips and tricks i should know about??

Why not put the components in the front in kicks or door pods?

Theres more room in the front for a larger cone, and the hole is oval shaped anyway. I got the splits off a guy for 50 bucks so theres no way i aint using them.

I just put a Jensen MP 5720XM in the mazda. Even with 13 year old speakers it sounds very nice. I will still probably get the better speakers for it. No AMP or Boom Box , since I consider it to be a waste of money and space.

I have 2 12' p5 sony subs and a xm2200gtx amp and i can hit 147.5 in db drag, actually USAC but it is still loud. does any one else ever compete

sound quality, if it is loud enough to spider web a windshield there is no quality only pressure

pimprolla112
07-31-2006, 08:38 PM
And you dont need much sound pressure to "spider crack" a windshield. Anyone who knows car audio knows its almost impossible to crack glass that hasnet already had a crack in it.

Im not going to say you didnt hit 147db cause i did it with 2 10 yo subs and 75 rms to each, in a sealed box. Its not sound pressure you need to crack glass its frequency.

hey so i finaly got my new ride and new sterio i got... a 2003 Dakota R/T and i put: a clarion vrx765vd In dash TV, 4 clarion pxw10" subs, a clarion dpx1150 and a clarion apx4240 and it was all custom installed. havnt herd it yet im going ot calgary for a week and when i get home it should be done. subs are 500 watts RMS and the amp is 1500 RMS so it should thump rather good.

Right now I got...

HU- Alpine CDA-9885

Amp- Alpine MRP-M850 (2 ohm at 800x1 RMS)

Sub- Kicker L7 in a ported box

Rest of speakers are stock nothing too bad but when i get more money plan on doing a component system up front but since college is draining my money right now might be a while

Bassworx for me. Their stuff is awesome. Changing out my old Blaupunkt system to a complete Bassworx system. It's gonna be LOUD Blaupunkt Key West MP36 (staying) Blaupunkt GT4 Special 750 Watt 4 Channel AB amp Blaupunkt PCw1000 x2 Blaupunkt THx 352 x2 Dash speakers Kicker Rear components in place of AC Delco 4x10s Nothing really special and pretty crappy SPL Changing to Bassworx 500.1D amp Bassworx 1200.3D x2 subs (i think) Bassworx pre-made ported box Nice system and should be good SPL

My system cost me $4000 total, it's in a 1996 Chrysler LHS and consists of:

Chrysler Infinity AM Stereo (yes there are still AM Stereo stations out there), FM Stereo, Tape, CD Player Head Unit with a 3 Band EQ

Chrysler Infinity Spacial Imaging Amplifier of unknown total wattage in the trunk

2 Chrysler Infinity 6" x 9" Co-axial Speakers in the rear shelf

2 Chrysler Infinity 5 1/2" Mid Bass, 1 in each front door panel

2 Chrysler Infinity 3" Midrange/Tweeters, 1 at each end of the front dash panel

1 Chrysler Infinity 1 1/2" Tweeter in the center of the front dash panel

1 very clean 1996 Chrysler LHS thrown in at no extra charge!

For a totally factory sound system it sounds awesome never heard a better sounding one unless it was the same setup in a Concorde, Intrepid, or Eagle Vision, loud enough to be heard from a distance even with the windows closed, an imaging soundstage that is a pleasure to listen to with very detailed mids and highs, and enough bass to be felt in your back and blurr the rear view vision in the mirrors even with the EQ set at flat across the bandwidth.

Sure I can toss in my Pioneer DEH-P77DH Exact Fit Head Unit in the dash and get even better sound from it but for a stone stock factory setup, it's pretty darn nice sounding and loud enough for my needs, won't win any dB awards but i don't care about those kind of things anyhow, like someone else said in the thread, SPL contests are just for bragging rights for those who spend megabucks for the right to brag that insanely high dB number.

Ok, laugh if you want to, but for me this is one of those rare instances where the factory did such a bang up job with an audio system to make it good enough that a person who does enjoy audio SQ along with decent SPL would not want to change anything about it.

You can't really say there is a brand that is the best. there are all different types of products out there and some of them do things better than others. I do agree that there are worthless, don't waste your money on em' brands. (Sony, those thin paper coned "subs" with the different color surrounds at flea markets everywhere:disappoin ). I never like answering questions like that b/c it all depends on your prefrence.

toolfan8102
07-18-2007, 01:28 AM
Anyway, I am running

JVC KD-SH99 Head
MTX RT402? amp rated 40x2 actually 59x2
Infinity refrence 6 1/2 componants
JBL BP 300.1 Sub amp
Infinity Refrence 12" DVC sub

All in all it sounds really good. Great spl, good clarity.
I would put its SQ up against just about anything(except the really top end stuff). The best part is I was able to get some good deals, so I only spent about $600 on the whole thing.

Il go against it, im waiting for a chance to get the SPL checked again ive made a few changes

Its been awhile il post my new list

2-15" ascendant audio Atlas
9.5 cuft ported to 28 hz, rhino liner on the inside
2x autotek MM75.4 one for subs and one for the fronts
6.5 re-re audio comps
panasonic cq-dfx983u
120sqft of secondskin dampifier, 50 sg ft luxury mat
0 gauge knu conceptz wire, knuconceptz rca's, 12 gauge speaker wire, 10 guage subwoofer wire(overkill).
0 gauge big three
dual optima red tops
standard output alt (lights will not dim)

All this in an 89 s10 blazer.

i hit just under 140db with no sound deadener, the box was not coated, had 4 guage wire, and 12 gauge for all speakers. II should be able to hit around 145-147, maybe higher.

Hmm, i dont have the setup yet but everything is ordered.
2003 diamante ls

HU-Alpine IDA-x100(since i mainly listen to my ipod or radio)
Amp- Kicker 600 watts rms
Subs- Kicker comp vr 12s

The stock speaker set up sounds pretty nice(inifinty system) so im probably going to leave to speakers connected to the stock amp for now.

Sorry for the delay. I don't hang out here much.

Thanks. I find the mids are awsome. Strong midbass when fed a lot of power and they have a natural sound. The tweeters had no "sparkle". They wern't what i would call "alive" they were just kind of making sound (which isn't totally a bad thing). Swapping to a Zuki amp made them a bit more dynamic but I think that some other tweeters would be a better value. I would like to experiment with other tweeters, but i ran out of money.

I've swapped the D5 and Tantrum for a 4 channel zuki audio amp due to size constraints

two 12 inch kickers in a ported box with tweeter and speakers hooked up in the box--found at junkyard for 40 bucks
and i have a 1000 watt lanzar amp that i got off ebay for 70 bucks.
and a 40 buck phase linear head unit from pep boys, everything works like a dream, except for the cdplayer, everytime i hit a bump its pausing for 3 seconds, and sometimes when i start my car up the song wont start for like fifteen seconds. but besides that my system is ok. my trunk and roof rumbles, but i want it to start shaking crazy

bmorebuick88
07-18-2008, 03:20 PM
im bout to do an ugrade on my current system, i recently removed the phase linear head unit and put in a dvd player, and in a couple minutes im going to purchase two 12 kicker cvx or cvr off of ebay, i dont know which i should get?

i want the cvx cause they hit harder, but would it be worth the price, when i can get two 12 cvrs for like 100 dollars?
