...the amp was a ppi, i think.. but I don't remember the model #. :/
The enclosure was custom built for a cow painted minivan (Chrysler/Plymouth voyager?)
And wired in parallel / parallel...measured at .89ohms or something like that...almost an ohm.
The enclosure was about 3.5 cubic inches of air per chamber. Ported ,tuned to 40hz.
We tried a HIFONICS Brutus but it gave out around 135db.
Then i think the ppi was installed...i gotta look for the pics in the old cabinet.

There is to many factors involved for us to just tell you how to get 140 decibels. Your cabin frequency, air space, power, electrical is all going to come into play. From the sounds of your reply's you have a lot of reasearch to do start reading man. Im working on my new setup right now 2 sundown saz 3000d and 2 12" dc level 5's

140db shouldn't be too hard.
In my explorer I had a single 15 with 800 watts and was hitting over 140db.

$5000? you got totally ripped off as far as performance goes. what exactly made your setup cost $5000?
you dont need to spend tons of money to get good loud bass. you just need to have the knowledge to spend the money in the right places that make the most difference to performance. a do-it-yourself install will also drop the price dramatically and it will be way more satisfying than just dropping your car off at a shop.

He also didn't ask about his BASS hitting 140dB... IIANM, he wants his ENTIRE SYSTEM to be that loud.
Oh, and you DID get jammed. Did they supply any kind of kiss with that $5K?
It all reminds me of something that Molière once said to Guy de Maupassant at a café in Vienna: "That's nice. You should write it down."
