Default Astro van 9-JL 18w6 and U.S. Amps/American Bass

I already posted the pic of part of the enclosure in another thread, but starting a new one here...This isn't exactly going to be a full build log, mostly just pics of it as things get finished. This is my buddy's van, we have been building it at his house the last few months. What we have been trying to accomplish is an "old-school" type build, full install, LOW LOW extension, move a bunch of air, and do decent SPL (definitely not our main goal). I worked at a shop in Akron, Ohio in the 90's doing mostly big installs, and competed some myself. He used to compete in consumer classes in USAC back then too. (Both of us had world records in the 90's). HACKMUNCH on here was a helper in the design some and some of the tuning...on to the pics...

Posted this one before. sealed portion of the 4th order. 18 cu. ft. sealed, 54 ported, tuned around 46 or so....


Amp rack (almost finished) 3 U.S. Amps VLX-400 for the subs, American Bass VFL-4000 for mids, and a small amp not shown for the tweeters.

Thanks guys, been about ten years since I took on a build this size, so I'm a little out of practice, but I'm really enjoying it! His plan is to show off those U.S. Amps for a bit to people who haven't ever seen them, then swap out for more power....those amps will do 3500-4000 each, but the box rise is killing us so we aren't getting anywhere near that.

I love old JL. I realize the new stuff is over-priced for most people, but still made here and quality, just not known as SPL stuff...good if used for what it is designed for. Still like the old stuff like these better though.
