Well.....I have just about everything I need to start one final build. Getting to old to bend in awkward positions anymore....
Anyway, list of equipment is below
Keeping OEM head unit for function. All processing will be done with the processor. I plan on taping in after the head unit to void any issues with the Alpine amp. I will be using the revised PAC adapter to do this. If I have noise issues, I will let you know for those considering this. I will try the Navone noise filter as well. I will also ground the head unit using a 10 gauge wire to a bare metal ground location after I test resistance for the best location.
Zed Audio Leviathan III Front Stage
Zed Audio Minotaur II Sub Stage
Rockford 3sixty.3 Processing
Speakers - 3 Way active
Scan Illuminator Tweeters
Scan Discovery 10f mids or the Fountek 89's. I have both so may play..
Scan Illuminator 18WU/4741's Midbass...doesn't get much better. The Kippel results are the best I've seen on any woofer of this size..
If it's anything like the tried and true Revelator.....it's going to be sweet.
If I could get an 8" to fit, it would be the Peerless SLS....nothing better out there and it's like $60 each. Another member is going to try an 8". If he is able to fit....well.....Peerless here I come.
Stealthbox that has been reinforced, sound deadened and stuffed.
Sub of choice JL Audio 10w6v3. Decided to try it out. I also have the Morel Ultimo SC and the ScanSpeak Discovery 10. All these subs will do well in the box, which I don't think is actually .62 or whatever the W3 needs, which is why I think they may have added the poly fill to trick the sub in thinking its in a bigger enclosure
...not a big deal many high end manufacturers do this. The W6 was optimized for .55 and I'm putting in acoustic fill.....
For those interested in reinforcing your box, I just used 3/4" MDF at the mounting points to the bottom of the box...secured with JB Weld and the original screws from the W3. I did install 1 1/2" MDF spacer for clearance...the W6 is huge and heavy..allot heavier than version 2. I used fiberglass resin to add another layer...covered the MDF braces as well for extra support. From there I covered the inside of the box with acoustic spray. After that, I will be adding some acoustic filler....not poly fill...something a little more dense.
Even though I don't need it, I plan to run 1/0 power cable to a splitter than 4 gauge to the amps. I haven't looked for a good ground location....I can make my own if needed. I plan to cover all wiring to include speaker wiring with tech flex to void any rubbing issues...pretty much indestructible.
The RCA's will be just standard RCA's from Knuconceptz..nothing special...there all the same at the end of the day...just be sure it's shielded and your good.
Just so you know, it's not going to be some show piece...just something that will sound good. Don't care about looks....or entering some show.
