Yes go with the Sundown! Which line sundown are you looking at, the SA series?

Also take a look at soundqubed, aka audioque.

Looking at SA. Not sure how they perform sealed, though.

I'm running 900w and my volts meter drops on higher volumes, it doesn't move to much but enough that at night it makes my already ****ty headlights dim.
Can I prevent this by upgrading my wiring from the battery to the alternator, grounds, and my headlight harness?

You need a power cap. 1 farad is all you need for 900w. I use a 1.5 farad cap and I'm pushing 2000w, works great, but barely enuf.

The big 3 is always a good upgrade (upgrade wires from alt to battery, chassis ground to battery and engine ground). How much does the voltage drop? If it is dropping a lot then I would suggest you first check and make sure you amp ground is a good ground.

The only way to prevent the dimming is to upgrade the charging system but an extra battery can help hide the lacking charging system.

Okay, I have no idea if I'm doing something wrong. I've posted on other audio forums, and people just say XJs suck for midbass because of how the standing waves are. I believe this because if I put my head over the steering wheel, or below chest level of my driver/passenger seat, there is midbass. If I open either front door, there is midbass. If I have my head where it normally would be when driving or in the passenger seat, there is absolutely no midbass. The peak of the deadzone is 80 Hz, where there isn't a response at all. My sub with its box should peak around 70-75 Hz, and I have my crossovers set so the sub goes above 80 Hz and the speakers go below 80 Hz. I'm not sure if I have to relocate speakers to fix the midbass, or if I'm just SOL. Any ideas?

I've got my LPF at 120hz, HPF at 100hz. But I'm only running 5 1/4"s and the 10" subs.

And I assume you have no deadzone around 80Hz?

My Alpine deck has a Bass Center Frequency. I happen to have that set at 80hz, so no, it kicks you in the head everytime it hits 80.

So does mine unless you're in the driver or passenger seat. I don't really get it.

Please forgive the interruption, but I have a question about the filters (low pass / high pass) in a head unit and what they affect.
Do they only affect the head unit's amplified outputs, or do they also affect the preamp outputs??
It's a Kenwood KDC-MP6025 if that helps...
TIA

On mine, HPF affects speakers, and LPF affects the sub. Should be the same for yours.

Which way are your subs facing? Comparing my setup to how most people would set up 2 10"s...is unfair.

I've had rear facing ported and currently have a side facing cubby sub. Had issues both ways.

I always hated that my "bass obsession was in the way of using my cargo space. So I designed my own extreme custom install. I took a "wall" concept and moved it all the way back to being a false floor. All the detailed pics are in my build thread, if the pics are still there.
