Default Another win for Sundown.

[Edit: I took the subs out of the box two days ago and discovered that only two of them have been working this whole time. I thought it was odd that I was only seeing 1 ohm at the amp. So, keep in mind that all of this is only with (2) SA8's! Well, and a pair of passive radiators. Lol.]

So, I got my "little" SA8's in for my first show of the season. This is the first setup in this car so we are still getting to know each other. That's also the reason everything is still so raw.

After talking to Jacob, I made a few tweaks to the box and went with a single (home made) 8". I was running (3) 4" aeros but the single 8" netted me 1.5db even though it dropped my peak by 7hz. I know there is at least another db in this setup, but it was still good enough for 1st in Stock 0-600w.

Left to right. F3M4, The Fade and Bumpin Dodge. F3M4 also won first in trunk 0-1k and Bumpin Dodge (the Redstick Wreckin Ball) put up a great number and fell to 2nd to SpeakerBox. Team Redstick doin damage.

Thanks to Jacob for all of the help and making such fantastic products. Not bad for 4 little 8's and a "500w" amp.

P.S.- At the show, I clamped a Sundown 2500 doing more power @ 1 ohm nominal than my D5 @ .5. Take that for what it's worth, but I might be making an amp switch

Actually, no. The box is only 9" tall so with the mounting ring, there was no room to flare it. It's rounded over on the inside edge though. And it's just stting flush mounted to the outside of the box.

It's right at 2cf net. If I do any tweaks to this setup, it'll be to shrink the box some to try to get the peak back up. That's probably worth 3-4 tenths. Unfortunately (or fortunately. lol), I'll probably be adding more subs before, or in leiu of, hunting tenths out of this one.

There are a ton of little things to do to the car yet. It's still very raw, but I am really looking forward to this season.
