    That is pretty slick right there! Very cool how you did the ports too, and the amp rack under the middle there. Awesome!!!

    Re: Trying to help my stepson into the rabbit hole

    His friends are telling him the subs are “unloading”. What does that mean? The box and slot port are built to manufacturers’ specs. I thought it sounded great, but I’m sure he is just blasting it to impress them. I’m also sure that whomever is hooking his amps up, probably doesn’t have the gains set correctly, and I’ve never done that. Any suggestions on the “unloading” thing?

    Equipment is 2 Massive Audio Hippo 84 subs, Pioneer GM-D9601

    Re: Trying to help my stepson into the rabbit hole

    Second question: We are going to do a Flute 6.5, and a PG 5.25 in his doors running off a Pioneer GM-D8604. He does not have a DSP, so we are going to have to use the amp filters. I only see the option for HPF/OFF/LPF for each pair. How should I use these?

    The tweeters will be run off the head unit, and I believe they have an inline filter for protection. Thank you everyone for your help, as always!!!

    Unloading typically means the subs are playing a bit past the tuning frequency - you may want to look at the amp and see if there is a subsonic filter (SSF) and turn it up to about 25 or 30Hz - the head unit may have a filter built into it as well.

    I would highpass the door speakers. He's likely going to keep it cranked, and low freqs will probably kill them with no crossover. The top end will roll off on it's own, and you can swap polarity on the tweeters and/or mids to see what blends the best.
