    Hey, I was trying to find the thread you had for your Colorado when you were testing the signal coming out of the stock head unit. Can you send me a link to the some how? I’d like to check it out again. Thx!

    Hi fourthmeal,

    i am writing you in regard to the JBL MS-8 discussion i found on the forum. May i ask you about the way you are fine tuning your system - do you play pinknoise/whitenoise and observe the graph of the speakerson REW? If yes how do you play it - burn it on a CD/AUX source, play it and check the mobile app?

    Many thanks in advance

    Ok ,thanks for getting back to me . Ive got one sealed @ .6 and it sounds pretty good in a wrangler under the front pass. seat . Im really limited behind the seat of this truck but I think 1.5- 1.7 is pretty doable . Ive been talking to cherryman and Brian Fisher about doing itfor me . Fisher is only about 30min from me . Neither one of them have done this in a truck like mine . If i go that route Ill let you know how it turns out .

    I saw one of your posts on a ported box with a SD-3 10 . I was wondering if you ever built one of these and what the results were ? Im trying to decide to go sealed or ported on these behind the seat of a ford SD crewcab .

    Man, just playing with WinISD models (not exact I know), if you put this in a ~1.7 cube box and tune way down in the 24hz range, you end up with a ruler-flat response clear out to infrasonic frequencies.

    Would make a good home theater sub as well as a good option possibly for a vehicle with poor cabin gain, I think.

    Gotcha! I'll be sure to check that one out. Thanks so much for your reply! Oh, was going to ask you too...how did you route your speaker wire to the doors? I was looking at my doors last night and noticed Ford still has that damn plug that attaches to the from the door to the car. GRRRR! Thanks!

    Hello!

    Hopefully I'm not intruding. I was given your username by another member, percy072. I am about to embark on my most intensive install to date (been into car audio since I began driving at 16...40 now! LOL!). I recently purchased a 2014 Ford Fusion. I understand you're running an MS-8 (did watch your video...great install!). From previous discussions surrounding our stock Ford Sony systems, I've read that the MS-8 requires the outputs after the Sony amp to keep all the functionality of the stock amenities. In your video I notice you have the outputs from the HU going into the inputs of the MS-8. By doing so, are you retaining your SYNC chime, bluetooth, and other SYNC features?

    I am very new to these "new" cars with integrated everything, so any advice you have time to provide I'll appreciate very much!

    Would the post be good for the system in my 2005 ford escape? I am from escape city. I am also getting deadening material from Don for all the doors.

    What tools and materials would you suggest having/purchasing for putting fiberglass in a door build in an 09 escape?

    I noticed the excellent work on the Sentra you did. I just got a 2010 Sentra SL (Non-Rockford) and I've been bitten by the car audio bug, again. Problem is, I can't seem to find a straight answer about what size speakers will fit in the front doors. (I don't want to modify anything, just change out what's in there. I'll use an adapter plate if I have to) So, since you've been there, what size fits? Thanks in advance.

    I wanted to thank you for recommending I contact Nick about the mkIII as an alternative to the 13.5 inch JL Audio. He did let me into the group buy (I think I was one of the last). And I am a happy camper. The 0.5cf requirement allows for all kinds of options.

    I can send you the sub if you need it for 180 plus shipping. Or if there is anything else that you require on my list, I will be willing to cut it for you...except my tweeters :)
