    Dub = Audiobahn

    Definetly not top of the line, but, really, they were $50 each....$75 with shipping to my door.... Can't beat that... even my pioneer sub I DID buy at walmart (lol im poor f u) was $100....and these dub's sound better than the pioneer did....

    Got mine from here http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/default.aspx

    And picked up the one amp off a forum and the other one off ebay.... ended up bein 80 used for the amp, and $100 new, but another friggin $50 in UPS charges the 2nd amp actually cost $150....

    So all in all I spent just over $300 for 1000w rms of bass...not bad!

    That's not bad at all. Don't fret the being poor thing... I too have the same disease. lol If it wasn't for the little things in life, I would have offed myself about it already. lol But yeah, 1000W RMS is not bad at all, man! I really don't need all that much bump, but it would be nice to have. lol I looked at my sub last night, and the mice chewed through the center of it... BASTARDS! Not a huge deal, it was free... lol So, new box, new sub, and I plan on mounting the amp on the box also, maybe on a door, and put it on the inside of the box... Not sure yet. I have so many tricks up my sleeve! ;)

    Keep in mind amp's can get real hot....so putting them inside a box is a bad idea unless you have some sort of alternative cooling going to it.....

    And don't mount it directly to the box unless you use thick mdf (5/8) or so...otherwise the bass-reflex will kill the amp from the vibrations....

    I was planning on having alternate cooling, always! lol I always over cool everything! I was thinking 4-120mm fans, with a passive push pull direct cooling. :D Also, I was planning on making a separate chamber for the amp to reside in. So basically it would be like this:

    |amp|space, sub|

    Then I was planning on also using pretty heavy MDF in between the sub and amp. I know all the do's and don'ts lol :D Thanks for the info though. I should have probably said that I used to build stuff like this all the time, in auto shop. :D

    cool dude , your speakers in the doors look good as :D

    i might do something like that later, whatd your screw them into the door card?
  8. Jimbo246

    Jimbo246 Guest

    I finally remembered how i did it. I used 4 screws that went into those clips that have a hole in them to screw into(cant really explain the clip) and i had a washer before them so it was strong. They are rock solid in there but the best part is that most of the weight is on the map holder. Or thats how i think i did it anyways

    cool :D , i might try it later

    yeah i know what you mean about the clips i get the idea
  10. Jimbo246

    Jimbo246 Guest

    i just remembered that i just screwed in from the back side with some big washers. Let me know if you need any help because they are definitely worth it.

    haha rye do your passengers have to sit on the subbox and ride it instead of a seat?
  14. Jimbo246

    Jimbo246 Guest

    i Just cut out rings of wood that fit the speaker. The speaker is 6.5, i am going to guess around there

    hey , you know behind the speaker did you leave it with a hole so the air from the speaker goes into the door, or so it enclosed
  17. Jimbo246

    Jimbo246 Guest

    its enclosed and made airtight by peel and seal.
