    I've used the jvc and kenwood. Jvc has a better display and the kenwood has a slightly nicer dsp.

    Linear Power In The Lambo!

    It is a modified factory bracket with a 1" mdf plug resined and glassed into it. I don't have any pics of the mod but its pretty stiff. This build is happening at my other store and I haven't been getting pics as often as I like.

    It's built for the wee folks. My 6'4" frame won't fit. The guy in the pic isn't me though. He's 6'6"

    Linear Power In The Lambo!

    So it appears that this thing shares the same crappy speakers that come with a base Jetta. We found something to fix it though. The mid barely squeeks in between the glass and the door panel. Clearence on either side is minimal. The subwoofer location can be seen in this shot too. Underneath the carpet was some bracing, foam and a couple modules that we where able to relocate. We will be tucking a single Blues 8 sealed under a grill to maintain a factory look.

    The owner actually drives it. It was dumping rain when he came in.

    Linear Power In The Lambo!

    Got a 2011 Lamborghini Gallardo in the shop today. Build will likely be as follows, Audiocontrol Lc2i, 2 LP2150s Titanium, Blues 6.5 passive, Blues 8 in the passenger footwell.
  9. I've finally got nearly all my equipment so its time for the build log! As it stands currently, mid level JVC 7" head, Blues 6.5 passive in stock location, tweets in the pillar or sail panel (undecided), 2 12" Mmats Pro (ported, possibly iso loaded, tuned 28ish), Lp2150 on the doors Lp2250 on the subs, coustic xm-2 and an epicenter (Ray almost has me talked out of these). Curious on the benifits of iso mounting, aside from the obvious box size thing. Pics later tonight

    I agree this is the first setup that I've felt didn't need a sub. I just wouldn't feel right without one though.

    I think I'm settled on ditching the epicenter. It'll stay put until I have my box ready for installation. My high pass on my deck doesn't go low enough to give a good demo for the mid basses. The epicenter is providing a subsonic at 30 hz and customers are floored when the hear Blues audio chew up Bassnectar and spit it out.

    The pro's remind of the original JL W6. The problem I have with mmats subs is their recommened enclosures. They are always tuned too high and sound really peaky. That and almost all their subs are SPL oriented monsters.

    It drives me crazy that I had to install them with the logos vertical. The binding posts whould hit the window regulator if I put them in horizontal. Temporary mount so I can have something to listen too. The epicenter is being used as my high pass filter, 33 hz, but the knob does some pretty impressive things to the 6.5's. I never get sic k of trying to see how deep I can get them to go. This stuff showed up in the mail last week!

    Deadened the doors with whatever scrap I had laying around. The plates are 3/16" steel wrapped in dynamat.

    Pexiglass Bending

    I've actually used one of those for a cat toy-hideout-scratch post-carpeted-thingy. It's going to have to be a little over 7" in diameter and be extremely rigid. I those are the right size the could be fiberglassed to stiffen it up. The plexi thickness is almost 1/4"(0.220) and was thinking of letting it protrude from the from of the console and lighting it up.. I will have to make a cylinder out of a couple of plywood circles and some sheet metal. The vid showed the 0.220 being molded around a 4" pvc pipe, looked almost easy. I figure if I make the mold slightly larger I can make the ends line up when I squeeze it together to glue it. I'll have to photo doc the process and share if it works. Good luck! I'm curious to see the results if you're successful

    Have you considered concrete tube forms? I don't know if they'll work but they are only about $8 at lowes
  17. I'm already saving my pennies for a 2400. I think it's going to take a lot of them.

    Wtb Inexspensive Sq 8" Or 10" Sub(S)

    Mmats p2 or pro's are really nice sounding woofers at a pretty modest price. I'm in the process of doing a build with a pair of pros.
  19. Are you just selling their pro audio drivers or are you doing the rest of their line too

    Diesel Section For Our Diesel Guys!

    I've been kicking around the idea of swapping a 4-53 t Detroit Diesel in my 49 Pontiac. If I do it'll save me a fortune in stereo equipment.
  21. I found a DIYMA thread where Ray was mentioning that the 2250 could run this way an they were making insane power. However this was before production models where ready. Can this be done with adequate cooling?

    New Amps 2 Ohm In The 4 Ohm Taps

    Ray told me the amps would run fine until the protection circuit ruins the fun so there is no point in trying with the new amps. All I was looking for was an actual answer. I understand what the taps do and how they do it and why they do it. I was only curious because of the exremely overbuilt nature of the amps.

    New Amps 2 Ohm In The 4 Ohm Taps

    I don't have any real intention of doing this. I was just curious because I heard that the prototypes where making over 1000 watts at 12volts in this configuration and where stable doing this with a cooling fan.

    Sorry. I didn't notice at the time that I was bringing a topic back from the dead.
