OK so I have the C2A-CHY3 and Amp kit...I need to know which one to buy...1 ohm DVC or 2ohm DVC??? What will work best with the Sundown? Based on my research I am leaning towards the 2 ohm DVC...please tell me so I can order this damn thang
Sorry bud, I just got back not too long ago.

The 1000d outputs 1,000 watts @ 1 ohm... so you'd like to get a dual voice coil 2 ohm woofer - this can be wired down to a 1 ohm load.

Re: STEREO Install - Sub/Amp

HAHA thanks you were missed! Hope you had fun wherever you went...

2 ohm DVC is exactly what I was thinking...I dont want to run @.5 ohms!!! I am going to order right now!!! Thanks for your help, you are the only reason for me getting a system!!

Also, where can I find a good sealed box? I decided I am going to hold off on building a custom one like yours; do a plug and play system and then build your box if i want the extra cargo space. I do not really care what color carpet, as I am sure whatever grey I get will not match, so I will prolly go black.

Ouch indeed, haha!

As for an enclosure... you can get a plain old sealed/carpeted one from partsexpress.com. Check out eBay too - just make sure whatever you get is using 3/4" or greater MDF.

Re: STEREO Install - Sub/Amp

K now I need to order a box. I have cut and pasted the ICON's specs. I cannot find a ported or sealed enclosure that matches up with optimal #'s. Anybody know where I can find a sealed .95-1.05 OR 1.35-1.5 ported/slotted tuned @ 30HZ??? Any help is appreciated. I have looked on crutchfield, onlinecarstereo.com, beach audio, knukonceptz, partsexpress, digitalaudio, amazon, buy.com, overstock.com............HELP I dont really care about the color...prefer dark khaki, but black will def work with the right specs.

Also, with a .12 displacement, do i need to gross the volume of the box up to accommodate? ie .9 box is actually a net .78 interior volume?

Re: STEREO Install - Sub/Amp

Honestly, I'd build your own box. the Type-R I put in sounds good, but the box is too small for the sub. I plan on builin a 2 cu ft box pretty soon here. WinISD makes it very easy, and all you have to do is buy the MDF and cut it to the right specs.

The #'s that SSA gives you are net numbers, so you want to go a little bigger that those to accomodate for displacement. That one above should be perfect.

Re: STEREO Install - Sub/Amp

Thanks Matt...I never checked out Sonic...+rep for you sir!!! Just ordered it

I have a couple more questions (what a surprise)...talk to me about where I will hook up the power wire to the car's power source. I know I can do directly to the battery, but I do not like the look with the red rubber cover not sitting flush on the battery...can I hook it up to one of the two fuse boxes? There are what appear to be power screws/nuts in each fuse bank...is there any benefit/downside to hooking it up that way? I can take pics if my description isnt clear

I spent 20 mins last night searching for the firewall entrance for the pwoer wire and could not find it. I found the main one where the majority of the cables/wires go into the cabin, but they are all sealed/taped up nicely. Can I just undo the tape and piggy-back the main entrance and re-tape/seal?

Re: STEREO Install - Sub/Amp

You probably could, but see if you can find the grommet that matt and I used. Check my build thread for pictures. If you follow the power wire, you shuold be able to see it. they might have removed this grommet on the '08s though. As for the power source, I'm not sure if you could hook it up in the fuse box. If you don't want the battery cover flopping around, go to your local hardware store and buy a longer ring terminal.

Re: STEREO Install - Sub/Amp

I started the build...I have a log going now. I piggy-backed a rubber grommet underneath the main taped-up firewall entrance. Do I need to worry about chaffing of the wire? I can take a pic if necessary but the 2 gauge wire and that existing wire/grommet are a tight fit...doesnt seem like it will move at all as I have taped up both interior and engine side. I went direct on the battery and just trimmed the red casing for the + cable. Thanks for your direction with this...
