    New subs and Box Designs

    Sub up, port up doesnt seem to work well for much of anything. I have never really heard or seen that design working well.

    New subs and Box Designs

    I have had many setups in my explorer and in the blazer and have done boxes firing up, with the port to the back or to the side and never had a problem hitting the lows. THe only problem with firing back that we have found is sub back doesnt seem to do a good score on the TL. The best box I...

    When is a high output alternator needed?

    you dont need a HO alt for 1000 watts. There are alot more factors that play in there. How much battery bank do you have, what kind of wire do you have, what kind of engine wires do you have upgraded? If you are having electrical problems than upgrade you wire to 1/0 or 2/0 welding cable, add...

    Stock Air Suspension

    My 2000 explorer has stock air suspension but I dont see a point in this. Whenever I turn the switch off I get a light on my dash that says check suspension. Is it ok to replace this with just regular suspension or the adjustable air suspension you can get at auto zone for like $50?

    Amp Question

    wire each sub in parallel and than the subs in parallel to achieve .67 ohm and after impedance rise you will be good. Get an amp that does around 2000 watts at 1 ohm but the bigger the amp the better your electrical needs to be. If you want to get the dual 4 and wire in series/parallel than...

    Running Wire

    Ya I did build my own but I have new equipment and just picked up this truck. I knew my Ranger like the back of my hand but I am not familiar with the explorer at all. I didnt know if there was a certain spot that would fit wire under the carpet or not. I have a new deck that is famous for...

    Running Wire

    I think I am just going to keep 2 runs, 1 power and 1 ground and I am going to ground out my front batt with some 1/0 as well as Big 3. Any tips on doin the Big 3 in this truck?

    Running Wire

    I have a ground run as well as a power run to the front batt which is how I have always done it. I am going to do the Big 3 and see if that helps and if not I will ground my headunit better and that ground out my RCA's, as I do have a excelon and they are famous for bad pre-outs

    Let's See Some Pics of Sub Boxes

    This is just a throw in, an old box I had for my Escape. Right over 3 cu ft tuned to 36 hz with a little more than 50" of port. Here is what is in the box - Nightshade 15 Here is the power for it, havent been able to put it on the meter but I would expect a 45-47 since the tuning is so low.
