    BWAHAHAHA...audio dave...that guy turned DIY into a WAR ZONE for about a month. That guy is such a fraud. Kicks look good though; glad you got your stuff.

    Yea, i don't know whatever happened to him, he took great care of me and sent a bunch of extras and such to make sure i had extra of everything i needed...Guess i got him at the right time lol. LMK about the box and ill pay for shipping, my local shops are garbage and id love to have those hooked up @ 425 w rms and those things will slam! Worth every penny for quality work!

    I pm'd ya. I think it'd probably be best for me to give you the dimensions of the box and contact someone like Mr. Marv who can make your box, he lives in cali also. Shipping will probably be a lot cheaper and his work is outstanding! Very easy going guy and great to talk with.

    Last night, my PXA-H700 came back from repair. I didn't get to test the output of the unit since its been raining here in hawaii off and on, however I did get to see if the display on the controller works. Now its just beautiful! Hopefully i'll install this soon, maybe the weekend? I'm gonna play around with the imprint more and see if I can get something that sounds really good to me and use my RTA to record the frequency response. I'll try to replicate that as much as I can with the PXA-H700.

    cmytacoma - sounds good. Just give me a couple weeks to come up with the design. I'll grab the dimensions of the box that I currently have and send them over your way. However, I think i'm going to change some things with this design because I may have tuned it a little too low.

    silvaboi - what you need help on? If its fabricating the pods, I can give you direction but i'm not gonna do this again. Its just a lot of work and time. I'm actually still working on the pods for the mids and tweets. I guess its cause I wanna get them perfect and trying to find time to do it!

    I'm more then happy to meet up if you wanna see it in person...PM me your number and I'll give you a call when I have some time.

    Do you have any pics of the full sub box installed? I think I'm going to do a single ported 10" and like what you have done.

    How's the rest of the install coming?

    Actually its been coming along slowly. I finally had a chance to work on it a little further after most of the rains have subsided. Here are some progress pics of the tweeter pods with everything installed where it should be.

    The tweeter pods have brought up the stage height a lot! I still have a lot of tuning to do right now... Anyone got any pointers for setting time alignment? Right now i've measured all the distances and have input them into the H700, but it still needs fine tuning. The frequency response of the system is pretty decent without too much equalization. I think I may have to work on the crossover tuning a bit more. I'll play around with everything as I find more free time.

    BTW, one of the dayton 8" drivers started to make some mechanical noise. Maybe its a defect? Anyways, I ordered two more and should be here soon. Maybe its the reason why the Midbass frequency response was quite wacky on the drivers side. I used my RTA to measure the frequency response and there was a huge dead zone from 120hz down to about 70hz. However, anything above 120hz it was decent. The passenger side is silky smooth with a pretty flat response from 70hz to 300hz.

    Call PE about it. They are VERY good with the warranty of the Dayton product line. Like I was saying before, my friend blew up a few of those and they just kept replacing them.

    As for tuning tips, phase setting will get you most of the way there. Do that first and then do TA.

    So basically after phasing, just increase/decrease time alignment until the image gets centered. I'm assuming the measurements of the distance of the speakers from the listening area doesn't matter as much? Also, I have noticed that when changing the time alignment, I can hear a frequency response change every 0.05ms. Am I hearing things or is this right?

    Measure out your distances first only as a starting point. Then, assuming you can do the phase switch easily I'd do it next. Throw that disc I mailed you in and run the phase track over and over. Get things as right as you can that way.

    Then, throw a little time alignment on it again. If you can listen to JUST the tweeters or JUST the mids or midbass drivers on their own (in pairs) it's MUCH easier to tune that way I find. I play the number track (counting from 1-25) for that one. The TEEN's and Twenties are great for tuning the tweeters since there is a little more HF content. Do them individually and you'll get a rock solid center.

    If you have trouble getting a center you might try changing the phase of one of the drivers. In fact, that's what I'd look at first if it gives you trouble. Hopefully you can do this all from the computer or you'll want to pull your hair out.

    Is there any issue with having the tweeters so far away from the mids in the kick panels? I have never done it personally, but I have heard others say that it should be avoided. Maybe it was just their preference since it supposedly pulls the stage down quite a bit.

    The fiberglass work looks like it turned out good. Are you planning to paint it or cover it with something like vinyl?

    Well, it depends on the music. On songs where there are low male vocals, It brings the stage down. However, for most music the stage is set fairly high due to my tweeter locations. I wanted to make some pillar mids and tweets, but I was told to avoid it since its a lot harder to tune. I may try a pillar mid/tweet combo in my other car. I have an extra set of everything. LOL Speakers, Amps, Wiring, processors....

    Thanks for the compliment! In reality, I barely used any fiberglass. There's only one layer on the kicks and none on the sails. Its mostly resin, duraglass, and rage extreme. I figured that the tweeter pods didn't have to be too strong to its just purely resin, duraglass, and rage extreme. Its really sturdy and I doubt it'll ever give me any trouble. Everything is pretty damn strong and I know will not give me any problems. I'll be finishing the pods with texture and paint. The kicks will be painted the matching OEM SEM color and the sails will be painted Landau Black (SEM). It'll be nice....I hope.

    Great build man. That will be a sweet setup when everything is done. Hopefully someday I can build a custom system for my taco. Good job on all the custom speaker mounts, they look great.
