  1. Nice setup, where neighbors I'm at 127th and Heggs. Best of luck with the sale.
  2. Congrats Rob! Well done glad your liking your subs. It was fun seeing these come together.
  3. Great post! I agree with what your saying there's so many variables involved and everyone's setup is different which makes everyone's situation hard to trouble shoot but it can be fix and resolved in the end. That's what I like about these forums everyone jumps in and helps and all you have to do is check off each one at a time when you have problems until you find it and correct it.
  4. I read that thread along with a lot other threads including one that's going right now from my buddy Pete on Avsforum. To fix my problem is to buy better cables there's a certain rca to xlr cable that can be bought (I'll find out which one and post) to quiet it down. I have 5 external amps in my setup and don't want to buy all new cables so I followed advise from a friend that designs speakers from diysg that lives by me and it worked so I went that route. All my outlets are grounded by a separate ground wire going into each outlet 2-20 amps and one 15 amp outlets with 3 ground wires going from my panel to my HT room rack outlets. I also checked my ground outside my house that feeds my panel and that was fine to. There's several was to fix a humm I like my idea and haven't had a problem since I did it. I'm open to hear any suggestions on a cheap fix though[emoji3]
  5. The boxes look great! Can't wait to hear what you think of them once you get them going. I had a nasty humm through out my speakers and subs. The way I fixed them and there's many way to do it... was I daisy chained a 14 gauge wire to each of my audio components in my rack. I stripped the end of the wire installed a spade fitting on the end of it and screwed it into a screw on each sub amp going all the way up to both surge protectors. As soon as I did that the humm was completely gone. Maybe try that. I had thread on Avsforum with pictures on how I did.
  6. I've personally never tested any of my drivers before putting them into cabinets but I've heard guys breaking there subs in by putting test tones through them. When I bought mine my buddy Matt ran his DATS through them and they all measured fine and were identical. I'm sure there fine you will know Once you do a fq sweep on each one to see if anything looks off. I also never ran into a buying a bad driver but you never know these are buy outs from parts express. I have heard of guys having Quality control issues and subs for a while the Dayton Audio UM-18 22 had some issues but that seems to be under control now from the factory. I wouldn't be to worried about it being bad.
  7. I would go to menards or Home Depot and grab them. Also try to use 12 gauge wire to subs. I bought mine from Menards I think they were few bucks per pack.
  8. On the spade fitting itself the wire gets crimped onto it. The other end of the wire that goes to your amp needs a xlr fitting you can screw that one in to it like the picture I posted a few posts above. But yes crimp the wire in to it.
  9. I just went through your thread inuke 6k and using one channel on this amp. Sorry about that [emoji15] So basically the back of sub box A will see two sets of wires. One from box two and one from your amp. Sorry for the confusion I should of re read from the beginning of this thread again.
  10. What amp are you using? Sorry if I missed this. A plate amp or a pro audio amp.
  11. Your options if your going to wire these to your amp having each of these subs going into the back of your amp. One wire coming off the back of the sub into the back of the terminal. These are dual 4 ohm subs. So basically if your doing one sub per channel follow the chart I posted which is from the12volt.com. You will only need one wire from the sub to the terminal if wired like that. Mike
  12. I agree with Derrick and use some tape all around the box so no black paint goes on the finish part of the box that you already finished.
