Yea I am going to be building a new front piece from a old box I have had made a while back and trim it down some to make it to right spec. I am still convinced it is the box and not the sub which is still no biggie got warranty. I will find out soon when I test the 2 used subs vs the 1 new sub.Slow down. You aren't even done with your $20k "competition" system in your corolla and now you're thinking about a corvette and a completely different install.
Yes I am right now on the corolla. I am in a stand still on some things like I cant finish some of the sound deadener cause I drive the car for school and work and time has been short for me lately. I am still waiting on my A-Pillars to come back. So I really cant do to much until I get my A-pillars back.
Spend less time posting threads (especially speculative threads about cars you don't currently own) and go work on your car. Sound like you've got a pretty ****ed up subwoofer situation. Step away from the internet and go solve that issue.
I know how to tune what implies to you I dont know how to? Just cause I ask some odd dumb questions doesnt mean I dont know how to tune by ear. It's hard for me to understand everything ppl write b/c my english voc. and lit. is not that good.several sets of something cheap. Don't wanna have another car with $20k worth of gear in it and no clue how to properly tune it now do ya:laugh:
I would think less internet warrioring and more working on the car would be an even better choice.
And don't freakin bump a thread 8Hrs after you posted it especially when its what ****ing components should I get? When its been asked a million times, and answered the same!!!!!!!!!!!
LOL I think 99% is your attitude about tuning. Lets be honest you know the difference between a woofer/Tweeter/ and midrange(maybe), but have no idea how to tune them. There is nothing wrong with not knowing how, hell even a few big guns have someone else tune their cars just to get a fresh set of ears in on the action. It is your attitude of "I know all and you can not tell me other wise because I spent big money$$$$ on my equipment and car" That is funny. Not Funny Haha, but funny Ghey. That sir is were you are ****ing up. Hell questions are great. That is how you learn, and guess what there is nothing wrong with admitting that you haven't a ****ing clue of how something is being explained......just admit to your ignorance and ask a question without tryting to then follow it up with you know how to tune......because that verys from speaker to speaker and set up to set up. We all came here to learn something, and a few even came here to reach out and teach.....so let the ones in the know do their job.I know how to tune what implies to you I dont know how to? Just cause I ask some odd dumb questions doesnt mean I dont know how to tune by ear. It's hard for me to understand everything ppl write b/c my english voc. and lit. is not that good.

Roger that. LOL!*closes briefcase and logs off computer. This thread is done*
Your correct there is alot I am still learning.STOP.
Trunks_9-You need to evaluate what you are doing. You have spent a ton of money to build a comp car. You jumped in both feet first without testing the water. Guess what the water is cold and deep.
Most people even the comp. guys have spent years learning, started out small and gone through many systems by the time they get ready to try and pull off what you are trying to pull off.
Many of even the big names get help from many different friends.
Above goes with many of the guys on this and other forums.
I admire what you are trying to do but you need to really assess your skills and current knowledge.
I am not trying to put you down just giving you reality check.
To build a top level comp car these are things I have found you need.
Top level installer and wiring guru if you are not.
A way to test different/listen to drivers before making the final decision
A great tuner
A plan to accomplish the above
I have found its best to find a top installer that will let you help with the build and be involved in the every aspect.(This helps you accomplish the below statement)
For the car to be successful you yourself need to have a good knowledge of the build, speaker, design and car audio knowledge. No sense in having spent $20k if you cannot answer questions about your audio set-up or basic or advanced audio questions.
Remember the best answer if you really do not know the answer is "I don't know", then gain the knowledge or ask someone that does know. This will allow to answer the question if it asked again.
I have read about 99% of the threads you have started and build log stuff. It is clear you are learning as you go which is fine. However at the end and you have spent a **** ton of cash and it does not sound worth $20k you have a major problem. Which is ripe the entire or portions of the install out to try and fix the problem. That is why it is best to find the guys that build successful comp. cars and have them help. You have already spent the cash might as well spend a little more for the help.
I to tried to do what you are trying.
Now I am doing it the right way.
Money is the easy part if you have it.
