I really like some of the old Tiff hardware, great stuff for the $$. As Blue knows- I am not one to talk, I have a shop on my property with multipule bays, and among other things a lift.
While I continue to purchase and regularly add new hardware to my stock pile, I get as much fun now from rediscovering what I have bought in the past and still haven't used!!

definitely not all going in the pro. also, not in the pictures is the xtant amp i got for my dad. 300x1 for $110. it'll be pushing 2 of the 8's.


dave, i wish i had a lift:( it'd make somethings soooooo much easier. my buddy and i scouted out a place we are looking at opening our shop in. 6 bays, 2 with lifts. i'll get 3 bays for stereo installs, and he'll get 3 for performance parts installation.



you gotta be crazy, man :) ofcourse not..
how much does it cost? a lot! apparently blue got a deal though.

total on the tiff and street wires stuff and the xtant amp was about $250 shipped. so under $150 shipped for all the ring terminals, 125 feet of 4 guage cable, 250 feet of 8 guage cable, 7 ANL fuse holders, 5 sets of RCA's, and a ton of fuses. not bad, especially since 4 guage is normally $1 per foot.



If I remember right he is making like a kit or something for the eights that people could buy.. maybe thats what its for....

i was planning on doing that, which is why i bought all this, but i won't have time for it for a while. i'll be making 2 different small plug and play enclosures, kind of like a bazooka tube or basslink, but better. available in single or dual 8 setups.

glad to hear you finally got your Brahma back... Packing looks pretty darn sturdy.
I am with DAC on this one. I too enjoy rummaging through the boxes downstairs looking for example a gold plated Esoteric (any of you guys remember that name?) rca Y-adapter and finding a brand new Clarion ProAudio 6-disk CD Changer with FM adapter I had completely forgotten about. It's like having Christmas anytime you want?! :)

that'll be determined by the amp i use, but as it's looking, a single 8 with a 200 watt amp in a completely plug and play setup is going to be between $200 and $300. i'm looking to incorporate a line output converter and and amp turn on circuit, so all you have to do is hook up the main positive cable, ground cable, and 4 wires to the rear speakers. the 4 wires to the rear speakers will send the signal to the LOC, as well as turn on the amp. the turn on circuit is $33 from david navone, but i should be able to make one relatively easily. if i can't, i'll just leave that out of it, cause it's not a necessity.



DeanSweet, i don't know how many of these guys know of esoteric, it's usually just the brand names they know.

hey Mike, how's it going?

CCFLs are Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lights. Like neon, but not neon...
If you remember my subwoofer box building experience, I put a blue one in my sub so that only the emmited light is visible through the port.

New audio stuff in the Protege:
I got a new HU - Alpine 9815 :) (I am going to get the 9835 as soon as it comes out)
I got CDT Audio 6.5" components for the front and a US Acoustics USP200 to power them.
Can't think of anything else right now. By the way, I had to send my e12K.44 to eD for a rebuild. Something was misaligned and the sub fell apart (not literally), so I had to send it to them. They sent me a brand new sub within 3-4 days. :)

Wow! That looks awsome! I see you still have Squidword there. My ED subs have been working since I got them. I guess I got lucky. How do you like the CDT's? I wouldn't mind replacing my front speakers for something different with a little more power handling. The Bostons sound great, but I have had them for some time and wouldn't mind a different driver in my kickpanels.

Intruder
01-26-2004, 02:01 PM
I did not find a huge difference between the CDTs and my Alpine Type-S 6.5" speakers. I am a bit disappointed because I expected more. :( I guess I could say that the difference is in the power rating only....

squidward, ah yes... :) that picture is a little old, but he still lies in my trunk. he's like a mascot or something.

I remember last summer you were experimenting with your subs to see if it'll make a difference in the amount your lights dim. If my memory serves me right, you tried using one sub only... My question is: do you find a big difference between the dual setup and the single one? I am thinking of buying a second e12K before they're gone forever.

oops.. looks like eD is not selling the 12K.44 anymore. :(

MisterT
01-26-2004, 03:41 PM
I thought ED wasn't selling just the flat cone subs any more. If they sell the "K" series, it may just be more of a cone versus the flat surface ones. Looks like we have a collector's item.
As for dimming, it didn't make a difference. I didn't try it with the new Class D amp that I got. I got it off of Rider69. The lights still dim, but not as bad as before. I haven't tried the single sub with the JBL amp. I will have to try it since it puts out the same power in 1 ohm as it does 1/2 ohm. There are no switches like with the SoundStream (high current/high power) so I wouldn't have to do anything except unplug a speaker and viola!
Maybe it's a bug, but no matter how good my system may sound, it is never enough. What are you going to do with the head unit you are now using once the new Alpine comes out?

Intruder
01-26-2004, 04:04 PM
I was asking about the sound quality/level, not the dimming. ;)
Tell me about your new enclosures! How do you like the sound now compared to two subs sealed together.

As for the 9815, I'm going to sell it. You may remember that I had the 9807 and I was thinking about buying the 9813 or the 9815. Well I got the 9815 about two months ago and sold the 9807 on ebay just recently (I got $202.50 for it which IMO is a good amount of money considering the fact that I paid ~$220 when I got it brand new).

So tell me about your subs and how you like them better - one sub with more power in a sealed box, two subs in a sealed box, or the way they are now. Is there a huge difference between the sealed and the two vented boxes. Also, do you have the e12K.44 or the .14 subs?

Intruder
01-26-2004, 04:18 PM
I just got an email from Eric Brooks @ eD and he writes that the 12K.44 is temporarily out of stock. eD is still offering those, and will have them in stock in about 3 weeks. They are going to make the current 12Ks until they make the "big switchover" - that's what he said.

cold cathodes or CCFL's are like neons, except much thinner :bubbrubb: they are easier to mount, since they don't have a huge tube.


12" red CCFL vs 10" blue neon:
http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid101/pf8f51ca7dcc5148493e1eb40c1e20061/f9d66e72.jpg


Intruder, did you put a variable resistor or anything else inline with your CCFL to adjust the brightness? i'm thinking about doing that, cause when the voltage is high, they are way too bright, and get almost pink :freak:

Intruder
01-26-2004, 10:48 PM
yeah, you can do that...
in my case I used a 3 way switch and wired a resistor so that the switch goes like this -- HIGH(no resistor, light is connected direclty to 12V)/OFF/LOW(going through a 50ohm resistor). The resistor value is up to you actually. Experiment with different values till you see the desired light output. :)

that's pretty cool :bubbrubb: how much does the 50 ohm resistor dim the light? i'll have to look through my resistors and see what i've got lying around here :scratch:

so do you have a switch somewhere on the sub or is it in your car??

I was thinking of sticking a neon in my sub.. but a Cathode would work better, seeing the size difference..

try out different values... that's my best advise :) the 50ohm resistor dimmed mine about 50%. as it turned out that whole thing wasn't necessary. the black walls of the enclosure absorb a huge amount of light and act like a dimming resistor, so I've never had to switch the light to LOW. :)

Lil Freek, I have a switch on the back of the sub. Here's a pic:

http://www.pixelmaths.com/martin/eD_box_19.jpg

Here are a few more pics:

HIGH mode
http://www.pixelmaths.com/martin/eD_box_10.jpg

LOW mode (notice the intensity of the light - it's as bright as on HIGH with the painted walls)
http://www.pixelmaths.com/martin/eD_box_11.jpg

Here are the two boards stacked together. The one on top is the one that powers the CCFL, the one below is my switch/dimming circuit. ;) Later I had to spearate them because I found out that the CCFL cable cannot be extended without getting huge amounts of loss in light intensity. I wasn't able to figure out a way to extend the cable without dimming the light, so I had to extend the cable that's powering the CCFL circuit (12V) rather than the cable between the CCFL and it's circuit (500V). Blue, you might wanna take that into account.

http://www.pixelmaths.com/martin/eD_box_53.jpg

I have the light hooked up to the remote wire of the HU. :biggrin: I am using a relay to turn on the light. I have it connected to 12V coming off the car battery and the remote wire from the HU. Basically all these connections are made on the sub amp's terminals. In the pics above you can see two cables coming out of the terminal cup - gray is 12V + and - (goes to the + and - terminal on the amp), white is remote wire (goes to the remote wire terminal on the amp). When the sub amp turns on, so does the relay in the sub box and lets juice from the battery flow to the switch/dimming circuit, and the light goes on.

by the way, those pics are old. they wer taken while I was putting the thing together. I didn't really have to disassemble my enclosure to show you guys what it looks like on the inside. ;)

I have always had sealed enclosures except when I had a full size GMC Jimmy, I used a crappy prefab bandpass box. I liked two versus one, even though one had a little more juice (100 watts more) when in a sealed enclosure. I have yet to try it (single versus dual subs) since the ported boxes Blue LEDz designed and made for me. The weather has been really crappy, so it may be later in the week or weekend when I get to it. As far as the ported box sound, I am much more satisfied with it. I wish I had 100 watts per sub more though and I'd be set! With adequate highs and mids, increased bass sounds really good without sounding like it is too much bass.

An example is a friend of mine who had 2 Kicker 10s powered by good sized amp and the headunit powering a pair of 6x9s in his doors of a Toyo P'up. The bass was great and you really felt it behind the seat. I could here him coming from blocks away, but his highs sucked! You could not here it when the bass hit.

I'll let you know how it sounds with one sub hooked up versus two in the ported box.

Alright, thanks!
I don't have to worry about power. My amp has 1100W at 1ohm :biggrin:
If I get another 12K.44 and hook both of them in parallel I'll have a 1 ohm speaker(s) and be pushing 1100W into it (550 to each speaker). The K's are rated at something like 350, so I gotta be really careful.

Blue, I was going to use bandaids but did not have enough of them and the proper size... :( j/k!!! :biggrin: that duct tape was temporary... just so I can see how the cable has to be run ;)

I was thinking about your plug and play 8" sub idea... I have an amp that I think would be ideal. It's an alpine MDR300 or something like that, puts out 300x1 @ 2 ohm. That should be more than plenty for an 8. But then again I'm a car audio :dunce:

well Blue.. since you offered and apparently nobody reads the 'For Sale/WTB' Section.
I need a ~1.0F Capacitor, preferably digital but not a neccessity if the $ is right. And maybe a couple of those new 4ga. line connectors you just got? :)

Thanks

don't waste your money on a cap. they are worthless until you upgrade your alternator and battery;) once you have an alternator that is capable of supplying current to the car and system, the cap is useful for that split second when the the alternators voltage regulator has to react to the drop in voltage. i can get you one, but i don't see a need for it. i should be able to get street wires, power acoustik, and one or 2 other brands of caps.

and the 4 guage line connectors, do you mean the ANL fuse holders? i've got 4 available. i might pick up some more, and probably some 1/0 holders pretty soon, too.

thanks for the advice Blue. I will go spend some money on some Eibachs or Coil-Overs instead?

sounds like a plan to me;) and as a side note, if you do decide later on to get a cap, DO NOT get one with a digital top. that increases the resistance of it, therefore making it even less efficient.

how much do you want to lower your car? i've got tein springs on my car and love them:) $156 is a helluva deal on them. (http://www.clubprotege.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4732) i'm not sure how the roads are in ohio, but these springs do lower a little more than the eibachs, i believe. i like that they lower the front a little more than the back, which is good for having a heavy system. i'm planning on getting tokico struts eventually. especially since i've got 95k miles on my stock struts :mdrmed:
