haha, that doodie lol. But just make sure you build the box to spec for the subs and they will hit HARD! If you need help with a box specs, let me know and I will help.

I really wanna go sealed for space reasons. So what volume would you go for a dual sealed enclosure, Just follow Alpines recommendation?
Optimum Sealed Box:
    External Box Dimensions 12.5" x 12.5" x 10"
    Gross Internal Volume: 0.60 ft³
    Net Internal Volume: 0.50 ft³
    F³, Qtc: 46Hz, 0.90
per sub obviously :-D

Yeah, those dimensions are the best, provided you have the room of course. But rather than just doubling the size and putting 2 subs in it, I would do a dual chamber box so its really 2 boxes in one. Here are the dimensions based off the above dimensions.
External Box Dimensions 12.5"H x 25.75"W x 10"D and put a divider dead smack in the middle of the box that is the same size as the depth and height of the box. So put the divider at 12.875"(7/8ths). And lastly make sure to use PLENTY wood glue and to predrill your screw holes with a 7/64ths bit.

So it's all in and working, UNTIL, I sheared the thread off the capacitor!!! My new battery will arrive in 1-2 days so I'll be able to power it all up fully then, pounds pretty hard at the moment tho.

New Wire arrived today, Looks like 0Ga but could very well be 2Ga.

How do you like that HiFonics amp? I know they were good back in the 80's, but they are awful "inexpensive" for what they "say" you get. I want to get some opinions before I buy. I am running JL audio on the rest of my system
