Just another sealed box build in progress. This time for my ride.

OEM sound system is highly regarded but the 7" free air subwoofer is no more. smile.gif

Had a 600W rms mono Alpine amp from a previous system. It will be happy pushing a 12" Dayton wired at 2 Ohms.

Internal box volume should put the system Q at 0.7 but I can add some polyfill and tune it somewhat.

That is cool! I need to purchase a sub(s) and build an enclosure for my Ford Explorer. I wonder how a pair of Dayton HO12's would sound compared to the 12" Kicker Comps or Alpine Type S 12" subs?

Got is all screwed, glued and wired up. Breaking it in and boy can this thing move some air. The leather interior tends to absorb or block the bass but with the stock sub removed and the arm rest / trunk port open it lets the SPL flow. smile.gif

Here is some finished pics along with the stock Mark Levison amp.

Here's some more " In Progress " stuff. wink.gif






Props to AudioControl for making great products with great application flexability.... I think this EQXII is vintage now. lol

Is that an Audio Control EQ device? If so, what are you doing with it to your sub? Boosting the low end?

I am using the Audio Control as it has high level inputs, using its RCA out to the Alpine. Could have bought a line converter but had this from a previous build.

I input the sub channel and a front woofer. This let's me mix the bass frequency and output to the mono amp.

I can boost or trim 31.5Hz, 45Hz, 62hz & 90Hz etc.. if need be. Still dialing everything in. smile.gif

I ended up using a cutting board to make a gasket that keeps the speak grill from hitting the woofer during large excursions.

I figured wood might be too fragile. I could not find any plastic stock at the local big box hardware stores other then clear polycarbonate. Too thin and way over priced.

I got this cutting board from Target. It's 14" x 17" x 3/8" or so. Already black to no need to paint afterwards. Cost like $12.

Grill is made by Peavey and grabed in from PE.
