great post vitamin, especially about foam stocks going up and down
1: yes, I am embarrassed to say i forgot to reconnect the factory ground to the front battery after I disconnected everything to install the Iraggi HO alt. Everything was still grounded through the "Big 3" runs from the engine block and chassis to the front battery as well as the rear two, but it was enough to create slight volateg drop. Hooked it back up and everything was fine
2: Ive been using EQ more and more, currently the subs are maxed with a center at 22Hz +9dB... still gets quiter on the extreme lows on some songs, then another song it may be too much... learnin as I go!
3: Thats hillarious. i got a LOT of **** for foam, I learned a LOT on this build, but if I ever get to do it again, I will use Great Stuff again... but i will apply it in less quantities over more time...give it time to expand and cure, say 4 cans per side every other day, rather than 6-14 cans at a time every couple of hours. My car is non-biodegradeable... in 2 million years the metal and wood will all be gone, the rubber and plastic thin...but that foam will live on!
4: I retuned to 27Hz and it failed miserably. I think the large diameter vs short length made it a giant leak, almost free aired them
5: Thank you! I wish I had a career that lots of ambition translated directly to BANK lol. I don't.
6: I just rode around with perfect_prefect twice tonight, his single pair of coaxials HURT me... they are crossed at 5.3kHz and are LOUD... I can only take SPL like that from 14k on up and 35Hz on down
7: I have the amp's HP all the way down (off I believe) but with the PXA-H701 I have them HPed at 20Hz 6dB/oct to be safe, though I can disable it even with Bass I Love You and have plenty of room
I think 10 100 farad banks would help, if I happened to have them Id hook them up, but I would never spend money on caps ever again. The cost vs batteries is the same but batteries help so much more. I do need at least 2 more batteries and to install my other alt. If I could just save up and get the brackets and belt, my system would be so much better off. Almost blew my stuff up several times today due to voltage drop clipping my amps sending them into protect and almost killing the subs
