I am going to rebuild my box for my 2, JL 10w6v3 in my jeep. I like bass but to a point only. I am honestly scared of hearing damage from long term exposure even with a pair of 10's. That kind of noise you are making is definite hearing damage. I am guessing that box is ported?

I'm sure if I jammed at 150db+ all day I would be deaf as fuck after a year. I mainly crank it up for demos or for someone else who thinks they are booming at a stop light or if a chick wants a hair trick.

I'm going on 20 years with some type of 149-153 dB SPL vehicle in play and the last hearing test I took in 2013 when I was at fire academy, they told me I was 95%.

I was born with tinnitus and have noticed that the ringing has gotten louder through this last month's subwoofer break in although.....

As far as your 10s go, unless you are pumping 2000w rms apiece through them into aorted box in a single cab truck with a bed cut I'd suspect your hearing would be fine unless you already have a big underlining problem.

My 2c.

I think you're just lucky. My hearing sucks, and I'm positive it's from all the loud music.

Hoping for 150 or 151.. SPL lab finally is releasing a 200 dollar meter so I'll know soon. Could be in the 149 range though and just moves alot of air.

2 Mack daddy diamond 12s and a pair of dei 1100s in tune ports. It was a lot of fun but tore the truck apart.

my 1200 dollar amp fell apart. literally and they told me they don't cover vibration damage and I was like wtf. He said likely for 200 bucks they will ship me a new one even though the don't warranty vibrations, they take of their customers.

I have another scv4000 coming too from woofers etc. because I don't wait if I can help it.
So soon we will see what these sound at .5 ohm per amp strapped will do to some x18s. They will blow but I will just have to upgrade to the ZV5s or something. I cant afford the nightshades and they want 10k rms each. 8k gonna be my limit and zv5 18s.

Man what a bad ass company. I told the owner Jacob Fuller exactly what I did. My fault and foul admitted the murder of the amp by 150+DB vibration.. He's sending me a new amp for $100 as long as I return the old (cost me $60)! I'm sundown for life now. Just said mount that bitch nowhere near those damn subs lmao.

No other company in audio would do that. This amp is 1200.

is it, the back right door has already been "bass welded shut" I'm also strapping another 4k watts as soon as the owner gets it out with a lot more electrical.

Anyway, here is Yukon 2.0 Anti-vibration. 1/2 MDF with 1' slotted industrial anti-vibration rubber. Works Great, they don't even move now. Ill strap the second 4k right above the other and see how well I can get by on .5 ohm loads per amp 6 optimas and a 350 amp alt.

How about 8000w RMS strapped? I haven't clamped yet but I know for damn sure its getting true 5500k+ RMS with box rise. 151.8 on the DB meter at headrest sealed. Running both 4ks at .5 ohm now.

Wiring looks clean and organized. Good job. What SPF meter are you using?

Yeah, so not my cup of tea and all that but good work on it - especially if you did it yourself.

wall of text warning.

I am going to to hide the 4 pack of 0 in the middle around the back I already have space. but I was told from the owner of sundown put the power to the middle battery and also the 3 Zeros coming from the front from the alt..
I also ran out power of wire..

I'm talking about Jacob Fuller that owns sundown. I communicate directly with him. He just made a line of ZV5s that take 2000rms. He says closer to 4000 on music and that's what I do. He's does do trade ins, so we will see.

My burp was 34 hz SPL lab mobile unit for 3 seconds 1.4 gain on strapped amps. (they are brand new) My friend had one and so far from what I see on YouTube they are about .1 accurate at 150-165db. They are new, 200 bucks and a great deal. I am buying one. Also shows DC amps, voltage and some other stuff.

This 153 was with the gain at less that 1/4. If I give these the full 8000w@ .5 ohm they are bye bye. They can only handle a few seconds anyway with 1/2 bass boost knob up. ZERO clipping from the detector. They dyno at 8000w each at .5 ohm burst, so I figure with gains set with an o-scope they are pushing 5k each.

If I do zv5s, Ill run the at 1 ohm. .5 is hot for daily, even up here in Colorado. OMG and these guys bitch at the heat here, 90deg 6% humidity. I want to slap them lol.

Yes Ceyko I did it all my self minus 30% box work, thanks.



Here are the ZV5s.
http://www.sundownaudio.com/index.ph...ers/zv5-series

or I could go with 2 more x's x2 and do a wall (maybe 4th order). it would bring me up 2-3 db to around 155-156b, in theory.

BTY this while build is CCA wire. Its doing great. I an constantly ay 14.5-14-0 cold. 14.2-13.5 hot, and in neutral drop to 13 sometimes 12.8 depending on the note.
That's BNR alternators from ebay. Check 'em out. They are cheap but I've been trying too blow this one up but it's great. I paid 325 for 350 amps at 1700 and 170 at idle.

Rebuild time lmao... They don't like 8000w RMS.. Looking at PSI re-cones but may get more Sundown re-cones and just be easy on them. 152 DB is a little outta control. If I went 4 X18s I'd be in the 156-157 range and I'm not goin there.

That's a completely burnt and separated 3' voice coil if anyone was wondering.



Ready for me to rebuild. Well, I have to grind the epoxy on the basket and spider area and shim the motor and drop in the coil and spider and glue it, but after that it will be a new sub again.



The other Sundown X18 is ok (impedance test at 3.4 per coil) but I bet it's close to death even with good readings. You can see where the sub coil was bottoming out on the motor on the blown one so I'm sure the other one is exactly the same.
