Re: More GP bass

Its not awful. The bass setting actually works as a pretty good bass nob and I added an aux in

Damn, I forgot you still have a stock HU. Get that outta here lol

Re: More GP bass

So finally finished a new box. Simple ported at like 29/30. So now I can't hear anything else and need to do some front stage work. Wanting a new HU asap because I tried setting my gain with a DMM and even cranking it doesn't get the right voltage. Remembered seeing some settings on the level converter but they are maxed too. Not sure how much I can spend right now either because I need new tires and I'm now a freshman in college

Good First
- Hard shift from 1st to 2nd is gone. Possibly the PCM reset for having the battery disconnected for so long.
- Annoying check engine light is off again. Only on due to high flow cat. Code p0420
- Current sub sounds better. It has more punch and on longer notes it seems like it holds it better. Both most notably at low volume
- No carpet bulges besides where it comes through the firewall.

Zee Nasties
- Rattles. Not due to misfitting panels
- Alt is still derpy. Basically when I start the car it goes up to where it used to normally charge at: 14.5v or so. After a couple mins it starts to drop slowly, .1v every 3 or 4 seconds untill its down to the resting voltage of the battery. Turn headlights on and it climbs back up to 13.8v. Never more never less. It doesn't matter how many things are on (radio, defrost, seats whatever) it does it so I'm not drawing to much current

New Box Ideas
I dislike higher bass frequencies coming from the back so I'm going to redesign a 4th that doesn't include that as a concern. Better efficiency by doing that and possibly smaller too. Something like 60hz down for subs and 60 up covered upfront eventually.

Would love to find another one of these Pioneers too. Does extremely well for what it is TS-W12PRS

Re: More GP bass

Its almost 11 and this is what I've been doing all day. When will I be done!?!

Ran next to stock in engine bay. Still need to do the big 3 obviously.

Re: More GP bass

Yes its 8 gauge, yes its a saz-1500, yes its terrible but it works for now...save the hate ok. I know that this is not at all good but its temporary until it gets warmer and I get off my arse.

Its overdue but +1 to Nkrell for the amp. Finally tested it today and no problems at all. And because it worked I went craiglist shopping and found a pioneer ts-w12prs for a decent price so thats what I'm using to hold me over till I get a box built and whatnot. Its in a sealed box and is in nice condition besides the small dent on the dustcap. Sounds better now that I fixed the amp settings that the guy I bought it from messed with. He put the gain and bass boost all the way up and adjusted the LPF after putting his ear up to the sub for about a second. Nice job sir

Re: More GP bass

Pretty decent fuel economy
The problem with a system is the extra weight totally decreases fuel economy.

Or just get lots and lots of greens. IIRC yours isn't a GTP either. Haven't had it on the highway with the new cat yet

Re: More GP bass

I get 30-35 mpg on the highway but 90% of my driving is in the city and it evens out at about 22 according to my DIC. You must drive a little bit slower than I do :P

Re: More GP bass

Got a couple things done.
1 - Added an aux jack but haven't figured out where I want to mount it. Just added on to the XM input to the radio but the quality from it and my phone is worse than radio. Would a DAC make it closer to CD quality?
2 - Replaced factory catalytic converter that was clogged with one from ZZP. Gas milage is back: 13 city to 17 average like it should be. Got 23 driving for an hour like a grandma yesterday
3 - Swapped out the interior lights with white LED's. Simple and I think it looks pretty sweet.

Weather is getting nicer earlier than normal and I've got a better paying job so I'm getting closer to putting it all together. Just need to buy an amp, connectors, fuses, misc stuff and build the box.

Re: More GP bass

Not much time on my hands recently but here is a small non audio update.

Got the hubs and breaks put on last Thursday. Took 2 and a half hours total.

All off


All back on


This junk never comes off completely


Cost of labor wasn't bad

Re: More GP bass

Parts goin on tomorrow!! Might takes pics during install if my hands aren't total grease the entire time.

$400 laying on my floor right there.


Here she is nice and shiny. All $150 of her...

I know that feel bro. I'm rebuilding my computer right now, adding some new parts and what not. I don't have the right parts on hand and the only hangup is my damn fan controller which has turned a 1 hour job into a three day extravaganza. It makes me want to explode with rage...

Toss no spare time because of work and school and stress from money issues into that mess and you've got me right now lol.

Re: More GP bass

Well my car just took a sht on itself and both front wheel bearings when out. Anything I was going to buy in the next couple weeks is put on hold for now. There ~$150 a piece. +1 for doing the work myself tho

Bought brass!


1/4" and 1 1/2" long is largest I could find at local stores. After buying them I used the search bar and found these that Sintorman recommended someome. Would one work better that the other or are my brass bolts fine?
You will be fine with the brass bolts.

Outside dimensions are 29L X 20 D x 14H. Before any displacement they are 2 sealed and 1.44 ported cubes. Port is 2.25 x 12.5 x 13.5L which gives a tune of 69.
Here it is all drawn up with a couple errors. (port length) I'll check it all over later in more detail and should have it built in the next couple weeks.
Looking good... If your interested in the 6th conversion here is what the graph looks like:



SSF at 25 hz (upper end tuned to 69 hz and lower to 33 hz), power at 1200W RMS... From the graph the response isn't all that bad either.

Re: More GP bass

OP I would say adjust the port as 3.25" will hardly fit your sub (that will hardly fit my crescendo 6.5's mounting depth)... That's having the sub basket in the 1 cu ft section.

It will cool better this way

Re: More GP bass

I feel like I've got it now. Horrible rendering in sketchup but it does the job well enough for me. It is slightly larger by about .1 cubes either side than what I need but I don't want to mess with it anymore tonight. Important thing is I have it in Torres with proper dimensions.
Being out .1cuft doesn't matter. IF you have too little volume stuff it with a little polyfil. If you have too much volume make some 45s and put them in the corners.
Quick math, more detailed tomorrow when I'm not running on red bull.
Sealed is 2.14 and 1.99 cubes before and after sub displacement. Ported is 1.14 and .89 before and after port displacement. Port is 5.25 x 5.25 and 12.5 long
Sounds about right.
The baffle for the sub is only 3.25 inches from the port wall, does it matter at all or is she fine there?
Personally it's a little close for my tastes. I prefer slot ports. You could do 12.5"x2" and it would be roughly the same port area, but you'd have a good 6" of clearence.

This would allow you to mount the sub motor in the vented chamber.(I don't think the 3.25" clearance will let you mount it this way)
Mounting with the sub motor in the vented chamber has several advantages. It makes it easier to get the sub in and out of the box, since an access hatch can be put in the sealed chamber. If the hatch is in the vented chamber you have a port to maneuver around. It also means the heat generated will be vented into the environment. You've essentially got a 1kW space heater, sticking that into a 2cuft sealed box sounds like a bad idea.

Good luck with the build. If your external dims are close to Beck's just use the design I drew up . (well assuming that tuning works well for you. You can modify it as you see fit.

Port velocity. Peak around tuning is 22.3 m/s
Excellent.
And lastly the horrible render. I've never been a big fan of sketchup and could wip up this box in about 2 mins with the CAD program I've been using at school for a couple years.
I love sketchup, I find it alot more intuitive than solid edge/autoCAD (the stuff we use at school).
