Default Quick rant.

Weekends like these make me want to quit spl! AH. I got my new and shiny, sexy sundown z v.3 with spl coil and ns v.3 spider. Yummy! Threw that baby in my magic box, after playing low volume for about an hour, decided to burp it. Cracked the second baffle off the first one ftl...

Then today, Had one of my test boxes in there. Sundown was ready to go. Well.....the side of the box was only held by 4 screws due to moving it in and out to find the sweet spot. Well....screws weren't I guess centered in the wood and when I burped it, totally blew the side out. Tried to put it together, but couldn't repeat the number it gave me when I first built it, dang it!

I'm trying to repair my magic box. But i'm so close to tearing out everything, wires, sound deadener, everything and start over again now that I have a meter. Oh well...I just want high numbers! Is that too much to ask!? Lol.

Tried something new for today, and burp only to have my score .8 down from Before. Go back to it was, and its still .7 down. I guess cuz Of heat but whatever. Lol. Sometimes I just wanna get more cone and power and say **** it and just make somethin loud as balls regardless

yeah man shit makes no sense sometimes. and worst part is, i've put my self in a situation where i cant mess with box size and orientation because i've crammed so much shit in so little space. i know it would come alive with more power, but it's just not what i want to do with this. i want it more efiicient and i really cant get it with my space and equipment

Built a box for the zv3 18's, ugly as hell, dug the lows heavy..
My buddy built me a pretty box, shrunk the volume to 9.5 , gets retarded loud in high 30's low 40's, but doesn't do shit on the low 30's high 20's...

Crap part is the ugly box, split a baffle and broke a few braces, hence the new box...
I'm sure the new box will meter better as it actually makes my ears hurt, but ol' ugly flexed so much more ...

Time to try an duplicate ol'ugly
