    Project "Bottom Octave Heavy Artillery"

    Very good customer got bit by the low frequency oscillation bug so we went big this time in his winter vehicle.

    Ride: 2002 Chevy Trailblazer
    Front end: Hybrid Audio Imagine convertible coaxes all around
    Front amp: Arc Audio XDi 4080
    Subwoofers: (2) Sundwon X18's
    Sub Amp: CT Sounds 4000.1

    Made adapters to fit the front end



    Factory rear speaker adapter



    Mister router table



    Getting there



    and done



    14 cubic feet has to start somewhere



    just a couple of group 31 batteries - no big deal



    the start of bracing



    double layered front baffle - laminated the front panel with about a gallon of wood glue





    little big of amp rack and battery rack fabrication



    transferring 5kw+ of real power - terminal cups don't work



    3 x 4" Aeroports - but we gotta invert











    Bracing? Yup. 5/8" redirod



    ahh yes - spl - that isn't /that/ ugly





    Overall impression is flat out holy shit. Easy 150's all day long - and the lower it plays the louder it gets. Definitely low frequency heavy artillery - already starting to break pinch welds in the trucks rear section

    Yes. I was agreeing with your decision to put it in there.
