Default Infinitely Baffled The Do-Over. :P

The goal 140. My previous attempt netted me a 135 and change at 32Hz. This time I'm upping the anty with a pair of 18s and double the power. A mind boggling 900 watts. That's 900 old school class A/B watts via US Acoustics USB line. Why you ask? Because, they're cheap. The 2150 average about $100 bucks on ebay and the 2080 were about $40, which includes shipping. Here is a run down of the setup:

The car: 1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cierra A.K.A The Cream Puff

Head Unit: JVC KD-HDW10 A basic CD player with a built in HD tuner and RCA outputs

Amps: 2 US Acoustics USB-2085 both at 80 watts x 2 @ 4ohms (mids and highs) 2 US Acoustics USB-2150 both at 450 watts x 1 @ 4 ohms (subs)

Fronts: Powerbass 3.5" coax in stock location

Rear: MTX Thunder Axe 5-1/4" components

Subs: 2 Fi IB3 18"

Electical: Stock

Here's a pic of the whip. I roll incognito, keeps the fuzz from looking my direction. :P



Random pics of the previous build can be seen here.

I'll start off with a quick tear down.

Amps coming out. My beloved US Acoustics USB-4085. They'll be back later on for a fully active system experiment.


Bye, bye Ascendant Audio Atlas 15s. You were truely one of a kind. You will be missed.


Here is my artistic shot from the trunk.


The great wall coming down.


This on is at a funny angle


A side by side of what going in versus what came out.


Here is a side shot. the 18 dwarfs the 15.


Here is the backside.


I've got my fingers crossed that these 18s will make some serious noise. More to come.

was your rear deck sealed off completely? I ask because I see holes in it. Im not sure if that is just because your redoing it or if they were left that way before?

Either way I love ib builds so im tuned in

The rear deck isn't air tight sealed. Yeah, there are some holes and what not. They get covered with with the factory cover, which is a piece of fiber board with sound insulation on the side that goes up against the sheet metal and upholstery on the passenger cabin side. It's on the heavy side with all the sound insulation and it did a decent job with my previous build. For now I'll focus on getting the subs in and the system up and running. Once that is done I can look at weak areas and address them one at a time.
