    It was the crossover that came with the Infinity components. I know the final impedance is 4 ohms and the only way to do this is with (2) 8 ohm speakers in series or (2) 2 ohm speakers in series, correct? I could be mistaken.

    nope, two drivers will be playing different frequencies so the wire configuration doesn't exactly work like hooking up two subs plaything the same frequencies. does that make sense? i'm not sure if i explained it correctly

    Hey guys im new to this site but i figured id put in my two cents on this post. I have a single 10 inch pioneer sub with .7 cubic feet of airspace, i have a 460 watt dual amp that is bridged to run my sub, i bought my wireing kit at walmart(lol) for 800 watts, all this for 130 bucks. it sounds great but i have a camaro with the sub in the back(hatch does alot). its loud as hell and ive been heard from a very long distance away. so just sayn that you dont have to get an expencive shallow mount sub to make up for airspace. mine was 45 bucks and im impressed. but im not goin to say get the same system what sounds good in one vehicle can sound completly diff. in another vehicle. but good luck with yor system. Latr-Z.

    Theres a program out there that for PC's it will show and let you listen to a perfect sine wave starting out at 10hz upto 22KHz

    I used it to set my 5.1 audio on my computer for gaming, what i did was listen for "dead" sound or jumps from one octave to the next (mimic this by humming real low and slowly rising to higher sounding humm- an "untrained" volcal chord will reach a spot that has "dead" sound) the same holds true with car audio from any source

    the program is called TrueRTA

    this is a great program, especially if you are going to some kind of sound comp that says bigger and louder is better,, you can dial in an exact frequency digitally and blam, isnt a cd or bass track out there that can compare to the source of it all ^_^

    those subs still require the same amount of air space as regular subs....

    a sub doesn't take up that much air space in all reality....if you're having an issue where that much air space is going to make a difference, I'd think you have other concerns.

    I'm sorry if my post my comes off too general but it's important. You cannot get anywhere without a goal in mind. How do you figure out what your goal should be? Should you rely on others advice? or marketing babble? Not saying you can't get good advice from others, but truly only YOU know what you want, but you have ot be careful to be able to determine fact from fiction. What if the advice given doesn't fit your own goal? This was taken from someone whom I find very wise.

    1) Understand product performane by sampling
    2) Vision
    3) Strategy
    4) Execution.

    The key here is 'vision'. Who has a vision of what they want? Most
    people don't understand what they want, they want to be told what
    is cool.

    If you were successful in finding your vision, do you have a strategy
    and can you execute it?
    If you follow that, there is no "wrong" answer, but there could other or better ways of executing.

    im talking about the space you have left for a stock appearance. the space im working with is about 5 inches out from the wall to the end of the wheel hump. the way i want to build the box give is waaay more than enough air space. ive shttly calculated the space i will have to play around with.

    all that tape is going to be the base and wall of the box. i want to fiberglass those shapes, then build a wood frame onto that so i have a good wooden box, with a fiberglass shape of the area its going in to it fits in perfectly. the entire box is going to go flush with the wall of that wheel hump so it goes all the way back and over the hump. that way there is room to stuff the truck still. i believe the onstar models of these has that side filled with the onstar equipment.
