Yep, the cars ordered. 50-90 days. Maybe sooner if he can trade a slot for one thats ready for production. The boat ride over takes the longest.

This might be the ticket for her. She doesn't listen as loud as I do, but she likes it to dig all the way down below 20hz.

She's a little bit of both

With their tiny box requirement, 4 should work in 2 cubes, no?

Sounds a lot like my own wife. Especially now that we always have a 2 yr old riding around with us. When you hear, "I don't like this song. It's too loud!" from the back seat, you have to respect it.

I just listened to this on my ear monitors on the YouTube link you provided. As son as I get done typing this I'm going to search for the CD on eBay! Holy crap!

Actually, can someone help me find a way to purchase this song or the CD that this song is on (preferably the CD instead of the just the single song download)? I'm having no luck finding it.

Guys I've narrowed my choice down to these or Illusion Audio. Either way they will be going in a hatchback. Having never had a hatchback, which way would you recommend they be installed? Down firing....up....front. ..back? Thank you for the input!

All of these methods could potentially sound good (in my opinion and in my experience). The two builds using the mkIII BM's that I clipped photos of above had them firing up in a false floor presentation. I know the one sounded great, and I could imagine Trevor's sounded good in the Volvo. When you weigh out the various compromises - that will likely determine your answer. Space savings, aesthetics, purely best sound, etc.......

Interestingly, I saw this post the other night:

Bigred's New Dodge Ram 1500 build

Concerning the Cirez D......I haven't found CDs either - I think individual tracks can be downloaded from Beatport, but I haven't used them yet.

Here is another one that really impressed me on the mkIV BM. The beginning beats don't seem very interesting until the volume is turned up on a good sub system. There is a lot of detail going on there that the BM played flawlessly. I'm sure me previous dual 12" sub install wouldn't have been able to resolve that.

+ YouTube Video

That settles it then. I hope they blend well with the Brax 3way. Anyone know a top notch installer in East TN/Western NC?

I really want to try this myself, but I live on top of a mountain with no garage or tools. Plus, it's a hybrid (Cargina) and honestly it makes me nervous...and let's not kid ourselves, my install skills are crap

The biggest problem is I'm (soon to be) a single dad and it will be tough for me to leave the Car for large periods of time. I literally drive 5+ hours, plus work, every day to make ends meet so this system will really be a blessing to me & little man.

Default Re: Review of the Stereo Integrity BM mkIV

I have received a question about TS parameters and enclosure modeling, so I thought I would address this now.


When Nick was developing this driver - he had certain performance and sound criteria he was aiming for. The sub + the enclosure type (sealed) + enclosure size (0.5 ft^3 (after Speaker displacement) with fiberglass lining the inside sides of the box and light polyfill stuffing) is a system that has a reproducible quality and quantity. That is why I'm hopefully getting the one I have in that kind of box this week so I can evaluate it as it should be. A consumer can certainly put it in anything they want, but the performance will not be the same as stated by Stereo Integrity.

According to the things I have read and discussions with home audio manufactures, they will either design a Speaker cabinet based on the speaker drivers they want to use, or they will source speaker drivers based on the type of cabinet they are working with. It is a system - the Magico Q7 will likely sound like bullocks if the consumer replaced their drivers with a Scan Speak set of drivers. I remember there was a bit of discussion when the recommendation of 1.0 ft^3 enclosure for the Mag V4 - for the speaker to work as intended - to hit the performance and sound expectations of the system - and I had Ryan Build that sized enclosure for my car.

A good little discussion in a thread that was questioning the enclosure size for the upcoming mkIII BM:

Question about the upcoming BM mkIII sub

For me - that is liberating - I don't have to second guess the manufacturer. If I follow their guidance, and it sounds like ass, then move on to something else. If I don't follow their guidance, and it sounds like ass, is it because of the product or the application of the product. When I was using my 10" Onyx sub - I had no idea what the TS Parameters were, and I never used a woofer tester. In the box my buddy built - it worked perfectly. When I put it in a different enclosure - it constantly bottomed out - guys told me it was blown. I replaced it (fortunately with the Mag V4), and discovered later that it was not blown - just not in the right sized box.

In summary, it is up to the consumer what they do with the equipment they purchase, but there is a probability that it won't perform as well as it could in the recommended enclosure. For me, I want to provide the best opportunity for the piece of equipment to perform - as I recently did with my tweeters, midrange, and mid bass drivers. I'll follow the manufacturer's recommendation for the mkIV BM.

Default Re: Review of the Stereo Integrity BM mkIV

Sorry, on my phone, but I still think ts parameters are needed. You cant just Build a sub for a certain size box and have it sound good in every car. Every Car is different, many of them significantly so. A sub that works well in my Car in a 0.5 cube box may not work well in a truck with the same box. Or a convertible.

For those of you who can't look at a T/S list and look at a few select parameters to see how deep the woofer will play and how it will behave, being able to plug the full list of T/S parameters is nice to have [we have a full T/S list on our forum].

Regardless of any Speaker that you have it will sound different in different vehicles...especially going from a truck to a convertible! A certain vehicles acoustic signature is not easy to duplicate across multiple types of cars.

The BM mkIV performs the best in 0.5 ft^3 to 0.6 ft^3 sealed whether you put it in a home, or in a sedan, or in a hatchback, etc. Frequency response, Power handling, excursion at Power and frequency, etc, are all nicely handled in the enclosure size of what we recommend. Power handling becomes the biggest issue if you try to get the woofer to play lower than it already does by increasing box size.

I definitely see where Jason is coming from. It's refreshing to trust a manufacturer instead of running through multiple enclosures (and maybe burning through multiple woofers) only to find out that the original recommendation was the best overall solution.
