Default A little build log

A few weeks ago I built a new box for my 12" Audioque HDC3 D1. Got the sub wired down to .5 ohm. Box is 2.3ft^3 and tuned to 32hz. I also just ditched my wet-cell Ever-Start Maxx battery and picked up a Deka 9A31s for inside the cab. For a single sub setup, this thing does work. Ok enough talking, onto the pictures.

Box almost done:


Glued up, sub in, and glue drying:


Ditched the old box:


New box in:




The business end of things:


Got my Deka installed. Still need to make a mount for it. It's just sitting there for now:


Sexy ring terminals:


I'll try and get a video or two this weekend. Got all kinds of flex with this little thing. Let me know what you think.

Nah there's a lot more room than you think.

Oh and the passenger side jumpseat is back in there now. I just forgot to take pictures of everything when I put it back in.

dnt think that battery inside the cab is safe, lol
I personally have seen a battery blow up and completely remove the hood in explosion.

The wet-cell battery that was in there wasn't safe. This new battery is fine. Many, MANY people run batteries like this one inside their vehicles without any problems.

Update. Put some carpet on my box today:


And I picked up a little something:


It's a Sundown SA-8 D4. I'll be building a box for this thing next weekend and it'll get the same carpet on it that my other box got today.
