    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    ran into 2 issues, one minor one well shit happens.


    I cut the holes too tight so the subs dont set in there fully, just a lil sanding on the inside and they will drop right in.

    the other issue is when i planned this, i didnt see the hump in the floor in the center on the seat b/c the seat was in the car so now the box will sit up about 3-4" higher than i want.

    pulled the seat, put the back part back in for now, descrewed and some how managed to get the box out with out cutting it out which is great, it is now in the trash and i did notice that i seperated the fiberglass bottom from the front of the box so that i know will cause some sound issues



    stupid hump

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    this rain is really getting on my nerves even though we need it, plus it induces wrecks which bring me work

    i sanded the holes for the subs by hand with 80 grit. the subs fit tighter than a seals, well you know

    drilled the holes for the wire, ill pick some wire up tomorrow, trying to have this thing in tomorrow and wired up and goto but not entering a big car show this weekend.

    still have to make some legs to level it when i get it in the car cuz of that stupid hump

    moved the bass amps and wired them up as soon as i finished the rain came, i like the new location and i had a peice of scrap MDF that fit perfect for what i needed



    mocked up


    secured and wired up


    im prolly going to ditch the side panels in the future and mount those amps below the bass amps...on a good note, I put the subs on the multi meter and they are still reading the correct ohms so it looks like nothing is wrong besides being broke in

    the box is in and it pounds very very hard, it sits up high like i thought and I cant put my seat back as far as i want but for now ill deal with it.

    manage to tear the rear door panel ina few places where the door closed trying to get the 200lb box in. also tore the door weatherstrip but thats an easy replacement part

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    i have to tune one of the amps, the passenger sub is getting hot while the other is fine, prolly hit one of the dials when i pulled the amps out...

    still gonna ride glasshouse, if someone can get the box out of the car more power to them but it wont be easy

    ill try to take a video sometime today, i havent even seen what it looks like full tilt outside the car but yesterday ppl were pointing at me so it must be flexing something

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    made an armature mistake yesterday trying to beat the rain when hooking the amps up...

    there was a reason only one sub dustcap was getting hot andyea the tune was a lil off...i got in the trunk a few minutes ago to retune the amps and found that i forgot to hook the remote wire up for the driverside amp. so done that, fresh new tune and its even nastier now that both subs are thumpin

    just so you dont think im crazy and say well the sub wasnt moving you should have known that it was working. the other subs back and forth pressure moving air, moves the other sub too

    You should go to a car wash or something and make a video of the car shaking. Some old Do or Die or something would have that car going crazy.
