    Hi I am currently in the process of updating my entire sound system in my 2014 Ram Crew cab. I have read too many threads to count on this subject, and I would like to get a fresh opinion.

  9. 4th Order Bandpass with Dayton UM12-22

    Long story short is that I'm building a 4th order bandpass enclosure for my car. My plan is to have the enclosure in the trunk and port the box directly into the cab through the rear deck where the 6x9's sit. The theory to my madness is to reduce trunk rattle and overcome certain issues with...

  11. Why do you guys buy raw drivers? Vifa, Dayton, Peer Less......

    System Design: Help Me Choose Equipment For My Car
    I was wondering why there are so many people in these forums who use Dayton, Morel, Vifa, Scan Speak, Peer Less Etc., drivers and use them in there cars. Is this because you get a better value from cost to performance? Are these speakers designed any differently? Thanks,
  12. Dayton USB RTA Mic

    Technical & Advanced Car Audio Discussion
    Has anyone used this mic? I like the fact that it is a USB and not XLR, that way I hook it up directly to the laptop with only the USB cable. Unfortunately it has no reviews on the Parts Express site. Link: Dayton USB Mic
