You can see my previous build here:
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"
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.
