Well, guys. Here is the box for my 8 RE8's. Too bad I don't have them 8's yet but I should by next Tues or Weds. ;) So, I will definitely have pics of them installed and some videos. :)
Anyway, this box is about 4.0 cu ft tuned to 32Hz. You may noticed some of the corners don't line up. That's just because this is just a test fit in the trunk to give me an idea of how much room I would have left in the trunk. I may push the box all the way up and have the DEI amp on the box mounted. Don't know yet.
Well, here are some pics....

naw it's MDF. I just didn't use the other side because it's a little scuffed up and ugly lookin'.
I don't plan on getting carpet on this for several weeks. I just am not too woried about that much of a "customized" look.
Gotta keep it ghetto. ;)

the torsion bars have been ripped out since my last box that was 8.5 cu ft with my XXX 18. ;)

I am not too worried about not being able to just have the trunk held open by something else. I can just hold it open myself if I want to get something out or put something in.

Well, I just wanted ya'll to know that I got my 8 RE8's today. :)
However, due to this down south weather, I may not be able to install Friday or Saturday. Really depends on the weather.
BTW, I know ya'll want to see pics. But, I am not going to take any until I install them.
So, all of ya'll can be patient as I was to get these subs. The pics and video porn will be here soon. ;)

Okay well. I found out that I didn't have to work the rest of the week. So, I decided to prepare for the hurricane, but first....
I had some things to take care of. ;)
It's not the best but it'll work for now until I have time to move everything around for a better install.
Take a look. :)







:p :eek: :D

they sound freakin' awesome. SQ is amazing and the output is incredible for 8's. :) On the other hand, pack a bunch of subs and you will have some output because of cone area. :)

I do have to do some tweaking. I have the bass on the deck on 0 (as always), the Epic is 1/4 of the way up (as usua), but I only have the gain set at 1/4. I usually have this gain on or below 1/2. I also have the bass EQ on the amp off. Oh, and the amps bass knob is at 1/4 as well.

All in all, I couldn't be happier. Can't wait until they break-in so I can crank the volume up around 22 and set the gain at 1/2 and then the other settings as well. Should have some impressive numbers for 8's. ;)

BTW, the volume on this Alpine deck around 22 is LOUDER than my X859's output was when it was around 32. Better sounding as well. :)

I'll keep everyone posted and I will definitely let ya'll know when I host the videos. :)

I know I am going to use Late Nite Tip from 3-6 Mafia.
Any other suggestions?
