Default taylorpro's swagger wagon - the quest for 150 legal on one 2500

Well i figured i'd take the time to do a little build log since ive been around for a while now. my car is a 1993 mercury tracer wagon; same as a ford escort. it has a little 1.9L engine that make a factory rated 88hp, but it gets 35+mpg on the highway and has never let me down yet. The stereo as it sits is (2) sundown sa-12s with SPL coils. They're D4's wired at 1 on my solid audio f2500d. got a pioneer HU, stinger voltmeter. i run an active PA setup using dayton audio mids and St200 supertweets from selenium; all run off an alpine mrp-f300. electrical is an xs power d3400 up front, 230A singer alt, 2/0 for the amp, and 1/0 big 3 done. overall im very pleased with the SA's. in my setup im running them in about 4 cubes net tuned around 40 with (4) 4" aeros. best part is they can still dig down to 30 or so. not exactly sure what the future of the builds holds but money will likely be the determining factor. would like to work with these 12's till i can get the most i can out of them under 1800 watts (NSPL class), then go from there. anyway, all criticism and opinions are welcome, thanks for taking a look, here are a few pictures.





































Picture of the subs before i threw the box back in sunday morning before a show. did a 46.6 sealed but i know there is more in it.




my goal was originally a 150 sealed on under 1800 watts clamped but i only know of one person so far who's done it and they're much more experienced than I. if i can hit a 49, i think i'll be happy. and at that point i should still be able to get a 50 at full tilt on this amp. going to be testing more this weekend to see where to go with the next box design as this one is far from ideal. also have alot left to do the car in terms of deadening and testing it itself to see what it likes

its foil tape. AC tape. whatever you wanna call it. the cutout of the SA's were smaller than those of my old XFL's so i used it to make sure they were sealed

yea. isnt my first choice but when there were old screw holes visible around the subs even with the gaskets on i figured it was the best option for now. likely a new box in the works once we figure out the best configuration.
