just thought i'd share this little story in case any of you have troubles keeping your sub(s) in one place

It is a story about AxB, a 7gen Accord owner; Bob, the 7gen Accord; and his sub, who was named Joe. This is Joe:



As you can see, Joe is not too big or crazy. But you see, Joe would always want to move around! He had so much energy that he would bounce around the walls constantly. He would always come loose from the power cables connecting him to Bob. Alex decided to talk to his friend, Pikachu. This is Pikachu:



Pikachu had the bestest idea ever, which was to bolt Joe to Bob! But Alex had to wonder, would it hurt? Pikachu then said, "Shut up it's a car and a subwoofer."

So, Pikachu cut some sheet metal and bolted Joe to Bob. First he put one bolt:



Then, he put another!



But, those two weren't enough, so he put one more!



Finally, to make absolutely sure that Joe couldn't become disconnected again, Pikachu put one more bolt:



Then, Pikachu and AxB went and ate a dog:



Well, not really..

Sorry about the picture sizes... I'll crop em down when I get home.

Also for clarification, there's another big piece of sheet metal under the trunk mat.

Man, I'm an audiophile, but have never had to lock a box down to that extent, even with my reckless driving habits. Eventually I will get my pics up on my car & when I do, I'll let you check out my setup. I've got 2 factory hooks on each side of the trunk compartment near the fender wells that I anchor a pull strap to. It goes across the top of the box & pulls the box tight to the floor. Maybe not quite as secure as the above pics, but even with my dramatic cornering, the box has never moved.

Sabbasaun, most people blow speakers from under power & distortion, usually not from over power. Distortion is what really blows them, turning the volume above the clarity level. So, I'd rather have a speaker over powered than under powered.

With that said, you must consider a few things: 1) that IS a 12" sub, 2) looks like a competition 12" at that, 3) Kenwood's power is over-rated 4) ported boxes require more watts than sealed enclosures, esp when talking about banpass or isobaric enclosures. So, that amp probably is ideal for that setup.

The Type-R is definitely a nice sub for mainstream stuff. If any of you would like to put together a system, let me know! I have been on caraudio.com's forum for years now and gained a ton of knowledge. Heres the subwoofer in my 6th gen accord coupe, next to one of my old 10" JL Audio w3's:

Joe, meet Bob:



And heres a picture of the custom box its in, in my car's trunk, just a test fit and it has been carpetted with the port painted, oh and some pics of the build:

Man, that T1 is no bullshit, just takes too many watts to push that bad boy. I used to own a pair of JL Audio 10" W3s, good speakers that last for ever & you can beat the shit out of.

I'm dropping a pair of 10" P3s in my bimmer soon, being pushed by a pair of 500w Punch amps. I had to hand design a box that would allow for my rear strut tower brace, which was a bitch to install. I used 5/8 fiber board, it's a sealed enclosure with a divider, & of the correct approx volume.

Eh I'm a huge fan of ported. Set up right it can sound just about as good as a sealed subwoofer. Now I know I'm not looking for sound quality as much with a 15" sub, thats for sure! Hah pure sound pressure out of that beast. It's being pushed by a 1200 watt RMS Hifonics amplifier. Funny thing is, Rockford tells you to put about 600 watts RMS max on the T1, and I've had double the RMS running to mine for 3 years now. It has survived many a sound competition and I play the hell out of it every day. *knock on wood* I sure as hell wouldn't put anything more than a component set and an amplifier to power them in my gen-coupe though. Too much weight added!

With the GenCoupe I'm keeping it simple, don't want to add much weight or spend much money. I hate factory subs almost always, so I'm predicting I'll hate this one too. Therefore, I will replace factory 8" GenCoupe sub that's mounted to rear deck with one of the 10" P2s & the 300w Punch amp that's coming out of my bimmer. That's right, I'd rather have an old Punch P2 than a new factory sub, plus I finally blew one of them after a couple of years of abuse & what else am I going to do with the single sub. I knew better than to run a 300w amp to 2 P2 10's, needed more juice. Oh well, gives me reason to drop those nasty P3s into the bimmer.

See I really am an audiophile, I have stereo equip stacked on top of stereo equip on shelves in my shop. Oh & wiring, OMG, don't get me started. Not to mention, I just have enclosures lying about, hell I have one out of an S10 flipped over between a sofa & love seat that sit across each other in my shop being used as a coffee table. Not bragging, it's just that I was installing stereos before I was old enough to drive (I'm 39) & you just accumulate stuff. But , I will admit I know very little about this new 30g hard drive computer stereo equip etc & will need some help with the more sophisticated stuff.

Accord2Genesis, Rockford does tell you to put to little watts on their speakers, yet my Rockford distributor in town always recommends too many, I guess trying to sell me a more expensive amp. But, I get my stuff for 10% over cost, so I don't mind, but still usually pick an amp between the 2 recommendations.
