Default My budget build

I have two 15" Q Power Deluxe (traded some car parts for) they are 2000 max/ 750 rms each. 4 ohm DVC wired down to 1 ohm to a Crunch GP1600.1.Each sub is seeing about 400 rms. I have a small cap, 4 awg wires and a big 3 upgrade with 0 awg.

I've read up a lot about them online it's kinda a 50/50 split on reviews. Some say they are garbage, some say they are great. I guess it depends on what you can afford. They seem pretty well built compared to other subs I've owned.

They came in a 5 cu ft sealed dual chamber box ( hit pretty good but I always go ported). So I started planning out my designs. In order to get the airspace needed for them I had to build two separate boxes since one big one wouldn't fit through my trunk opening. Each sub has it's own 3.7 cu ft ported box tuned to 31 hz made out of 3/4 MDF, sound deadened inside of boxes with undercoating and carpeted outside. Subs back/port back. Took me over an hour to get them in the trunk due to 1/2" miscalculation.








I sound deadened my whole trunk with one layer (still more to come). I borrowed a buddies amp to see what they would do with 2k rms and I was very impressed. Pretty much everything flexes including my back window, lost my rear view mirror within minutes and my bumper was literally about to fall off.

I can't really complain about my budget system. I have about $400 total invested for everything. I do plan on up grading this summer though, really wanting 4 12" Alpine type R's.

I have a MB Quart DSC 1500.1d - Maxxsonics and no complaints.
Also have a Crunch 1500.5, also Maxxsonics, and its 'ok' but certainly not like the MB.
Funny thing is I've had these for quite a few years now and no issues but maybe I'm just lucky Too bad the newer MB stuff seems to have fallen off, at least in the lower lines.
Ever funnier yet is I have a RF power t-600 sitting in my basement doing nothing, I'd love to use it but class A/[email protected] watts is more than my alternator can handle. LOL

And yes I'm certain that GP DOMINATES my power series!!!

Ya I have no complaints with it at all, it's been a great amp so far. I am looking for one that will do 1500 watts rms at 1 ohm though. I've also been thinking about changing my set up. Subs/ ports firing in the cabin sealed off from trunk. I've been watching and reading a lot of stuff on a sealed trunk and looks like something I want to attempt. My trunk rattle is absolutely driving me nuts!!!!!
