hey just a quick question and wanted to see if you guys think the set up is lame or not thanks (

Lookin good! I would clean up the wiring a little bit to get it looking extra sharp. How hard does that pound?

well i would sound great but that amp calls for 4ohms and thoes are 2 ohm subs :( so that amps now for sale now lol thanks

Before you sell it....

What model amp is it? Is it a mono amp, 2 channel, or...?

How do you have the subs wired to the amp?

If you can load the amp properly or is rated to take a 2 ohm or 1 ohm load you might be ok with what you have.

I've never been a fan of the generic sub box, and the wiring definitely needs some attention.

lol i know about the wiring and if i had the money id do a ill fiberglass set up but its a lanzar max power 282

when its bridged to 2 ohms it only delivers 450rms and i need at least 600 and yeah its a 2 channel

If those are 2 ohm speakers, and you are wiring them parrallel, you will have 1 ohm into each sub. Most likely you're going to have to upgrade your amp and spend a bit more. But oh God will it ever be worth it.

yea im workin on the cash aspect to that i just got hired today so new amp is on the way !

if they are 2 ohm, you could just wire them in series and get 4ohms, so no need for a new amps other than a better one :)

its not lame, but its not that custom either.
time for fiberglass.

06-16-2007, 01:32 AM
yeah I know I wish I had the money/skills for fiber glass maybe if I have some spare cash towards the end of the summer and wiring them in series..hmm

06-16-2007, 04:49 PM
so i tried wiring it in series and it worked but their was a high pitch noies along with the bass and then when i took out the car again it stopped working and whenever i went to turn the input level up the subs whould just like randomly move up and down to full extension? wtf i tihink im just gonna ____ can this thing

sounds like a bad ground to me, check it real good and you don't need much money for fiberglass just practice.

06-18-2007, 05:47 AM
Sorry bro but boxes are lame. Do something custom or not as bulky.

06-18-2007, 07:43 AM
its ok, looks like two boxes in one but over all not bad. BULKY for sure, you could go fiberglass and get more airspace and a harder hit with less mass. As for wires just remeber this if it were a show or something....wires are bad, never see wires unless you cant help it and if then make them look super smooth and organized tied down etc
