I meant to ask, but forgot. How did the rebuild turn out? Get everything back together?

Well I haven't had time to build the wall for 4 18s yet. I'm waiting a few more months. I kept the blown x18 and just bought 2 new ones and stored them. I have all the hardware. I just need the time. I'm expecting 155-156db since I'm already tapping close to 152db with this shitty ass box. My goal really is 150+ DB at 20-25hz. I couldn't really care less about SPL, its just a nice bonus. I like low end.



Inverting my subs helped since the jackass didn't calculate for bracing. I really don't like how the panels came out around the sundown logo, but hey all I had was a hand dremmel at the time.



Stacked my amps and it solved my heating problems without having to add fans. Just got them off the carpet. They are running at .5 ohm each. The Mid range and High amps are running @ 4ohm. Both are Sundown 300w and the bass is scv 4000s strapped.



Fabbed up some more speakers up front to replace my alpines. These were expensive as hell and to be completely honest I like the sound of the alpines better. These are much louder though. At least I'm 100% sundown now.



Mechman 370. Bitch cost me 700 bucks but its worth it. I had a ebay "350a" in there before and having this one is like night and day with voltage drops. I may throw the old on back on with the mechman. I have clamped 800a going to my bass amps alone. Clamped 7800w true RMS at .5 ohm so one 370 amp alternator still doesn't cut it. I'm in the realm of dual alts now. This one is working very hard and runs very hot.

Got 3 ohio generator 300 amp alts in now. Mechman 370 is gone.



Took out all the 1/0 CCA and did 4 runs of OFC power 1/0 and 4 runs of OFG 1/0 neg. Also had to make some D blocks. I don't like how they came out but they will work for now. .1 voltage drop from alt to rear bank. 240 ft and 1k later...



This is nowhere near done.. It will have lights, fans, more panels, amp racks, ect but I will be building on this. Electrical is 100% functional right now. All switches and volt gauges are working to the back, just need to hook up relays and go from there.



Box is on point. I will be adding more panels but the cabin is 100% sealed. Its 28 sq ft net and about 35 gross. Tuned to 25 I'm expecting around 156 on 10k but the guy who sealed it and did my roof said it could possibly do 158s. Not at 45hz either we are talking 158 @ 28 hz or so lol

Still waiting on my subs to be built >.>
They are sundown X18 V.2 with upgraded zv5 frames and NS V.3 coils.



More in a few weeks..

Doubling power from 8k to 16k. I got 2 killer deals on two more scv4000s. 620 each for B Friday. Couldn't find any good deals on XS power though. That's all I lack.

Should be 158db'ish@ low 30 hz.

Progress.. Also I bought a house near West Palm Beach, Florida. I can finally keep this puppy locked up in a garage!

1/2 power did a 156 and some change sealed on the dash. I have 8000 more watts that SHOULD be here within the week.. Hoping for 158+ on music @1 ohm nominal and 160+ on .25 burp nominal. But I can'y .25 ohm it until I get a new bank of d3100 XS batteries. That bank will be around 4k..


I haven't been on a real meter yet but I have a SPL labs mini and it's VERY accurate.
Poor truck is seriously getting banged up and I've been trying to be easy.

You know I'm not completley sure. I think the factory x frames are 7 inches pole to pole. Don't quote me on that though. These have the new zv5 frames and nightshade flat coils. The new frame is supposed to make the pole pit bottomless compared to surround travel.

New motor is in, new amps are in. Went from x4 4ks @ 1ohm rising to 1.3 for 158.2 to x2 6ks @.5 ohm nominal rising to .8ohm. Amps are making 5800w x2 clamped. Lost about .5 DB but not having to deal with a shit load of bass amps is nice. Cab peak is 38hz. Making power down to 23hz. 155DB+@23Hz+

EDIT: Hit a 158.2 this morning. Very cold run and batteries topped off.

Notice me making the building dance at the very end. LOL
