I just got off the phone with Chad over at ascendant audio and ordered my new avalanche 15. man I cant wait to get this sub and test it out. Shipping was only $20 you cant beat that. Well I just wanted to let you guys know cause I have been waiting a long time to check these out now I will let you all know how it really is once I get it. Also he had mentioned that in the near future if people are interested he will be putting out a line of snailshell enclosures that have a black satin finish that he claimed" will look like a million bucks" not oly will they be nicer then powered 4sounds but they will be cheaper as well so if you guys are interested let me know and I will let him know he has a following with the idea to go through with it faster.
Gosh. That's cool man. I'm still down about the Brahma, but I finally sold some stuff so I'm gonna order the Eclipse 7100 12" this week. 2.25 cf box tuned to about 35 hz, Johnathan said that fits to specs.
hey Joe just a thought. My avalanche came to $319.98 shipped. Why dont you wait and I will let you know how it sounds. If you were ready to pay $250 for the Brahma then about $40-50 for shipping it might be a smart move to get the avalanche. Its up to you man but I will have it by next week. if you dont want ot wait that long I understand. Man I sure can't wait.
Are you gonna hook it up tonight if you get it? I need to hear how they sound. I know you'll be able to compare them to Brahma's and x.x.x's because you kinda own a Brahma. If it's what they say they are then I'm gonna hold off and order one.
they havnt come out with the avalanche 12 yet. It will be out very soon. Hey Joe I cant hook it up tonight because I havnt built the box yet but no worries I am all over it tomarrow. The speaker came today so I am gung-ho to get it in. I will keep ya posted man.
Awwwwwww, So close. Sweet man. I'm in a pretty bad mood today becuase the guy that was gonna buy my guitar and amp backed out, he didn't even have the money. And nobody will buy any of my subs or amps around here. I am getting really fed up at people wanting something, and then they change their mind and go buy crap or I find out they didn't have the money. AHHHHH. I'm never gonna be able to upgrade my stuff. I'm going insane.
I hear ya man that sucks.well I plan on getting this done today if this snow holds off a little bit. I am sooooo damn psyched I cant wait. I have wanted to her one of these for a long time. By the way this sub looks very very very nicce. If it sounds half as good as it looks I will be extremely happy. I was sooo close to taking my brahma out of its box and putting it in just for a little test run but I figured I would do this the right way and not let my anxiousness get the best of me.lol!
James, did ya get it in yet? I know you said if there's snow then you probably wouldn't. Not sure on how it is where you are, but in Michigan we got about 8 inches between yesterday and today. Just checking up on the Avalanche.
Hey Joe, I got it installed today. Finally got the damn box built but this thing is like a tank. I havnt really gotten full throttle on it but it souns very very very nice. I put on Late night tip at a relatively low volume ok it was more like medium/high and it sounded absolutely amazing. It was very comparable to my Brahma. It almost sounds like the same sub. I cant wait to turn it up a little more tomarrow. I will keep you posted but as of now I would be on the phone with Chad cause I am giving it a "A"
I havnt even turned this sub up all the way and I have had a head ache since I got out of my truck. It is plenty loud. as far a being louder then two l5's I would have to say yes. Not to mention sound a ton better. Its like comparing a Gremlin to a vette.
yeah it is pretty nasty Hunter. I was just outside and I turned it up a little more and I am gonna have to tell you guys with the amount of power it sounds better then my brahma and they are both in 2.5 cu/ft sealed with 600 watts from my PPi a600.2 which is underrated also. I would call chad guys cause this sub is a WINNER.
Alright James, I got some questions, because I am eventually gonna buy an Avalanche, (just as soon as I sell my MotherF*cking guitar).
The Avalanche is dual 2 ohms, and you can wire it normally, unlike the Atlas, correct?
Secondly, I did sell my old system, so I can start amp shopping. I'm probably gonna go with a box size around 2.2 cf (the smaller the better, I have a dinky car), which is the recommended sealed size. I forgot what you said you had your Avalanche on... But what would you recommend for wattage? I'm thinking maybe, 600, 700 rms. It says you can run like 500 to it and it would stil sound good. I'm also debating on which would be better, or cost cheaper for an amp... wiring the Avalanche in series, and getting a 2 channel amp and bridging it, or wiring the sub in parallel and getting a mono that goes down to 1 ohm.
BTW, I'm gonna need to keep the amp cost below 300 bucks. Below 250 if possible, which I know by now probably isn't.
ok Joe, yes unlike the Atlas you can wire the Aval any way you want. I am running it at 4ohms right now off my ppi a600.2 which is underrated but not much so I am prob pushing about 650 or so. It sounds amazing. I have it in a 2.5cu/ft sealed so 2.2 will work well also. as far as an amp there is a PPI a600 on ebay right now that might be a good buy for you it is a really sweet amp or you can get a Orion HCCA 250g4 all day long on ebay for $300 that wuld give it 900 @ 1ohm which chad told me would work well also especially if you are going to go with a sealed enclosure the extra power will hook you up. I would go class a/b if you could and stay away from the class d's if possible. Let me kow if there is anything else you need man. you will not be disapointed I promise you
Awsome, as for the Orion, should I go a little bit smaller, say the 2.2 over the 2.5 cf if I'm gonna be pushing 900 watts to it? I'm gonna go check out amps on ebay right now. I'd love to have an Orion amp. Any other good amps that would push the Avalanche well that anybody could recommend would be greatly appreciated.
well when I bought my sub I told chad that I was going to be running it off either my a600 or and orion 250g4 and he said that is an excellent choice of amp I might say. So when he gave me my specs I told him somewhere between 650-900 watts and the fact that I have an SUV he said go bigger but he said anywhere from 2-2.5 would be very nice. Just call him up he is an awsome guy and he is more then willing to talk to you about what your plans are and what type of car you have just shoot the SH!T with him.
yeah I hear ya man I was just F'in with ya that amp would be sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeetttttttt for that sub I cant wait till I get mine although it sounds soooo damn good already I dont know how it could sound better. I guess I will wait to hear from you to see how it is.
hey CUUM guzzler Hunter! I was wondering where you went to. I thought your mommy had you on lock down! lol! your right man I dont have a life dont ever get married and have kids cause you will turn into me! lol! yes Joe I am getting a 250g4 I am waiting on the guy to get in the new plugs for it. Isaac hooked me up with the same guy he got his from.
ya i was on lock down.i pissed her off though, she was trying to talk to me while i was posting, and i wouldnt respond to her and i would give her an angry look everytime she said something. she kept on talking and talking, and then she got mad because i told her she talks too much. so now im not on lock down haha i already feel like im married and im only 18. might have gotten her pregnant too.(and no im not talkling about rupaul. i knew that one of you were going to try and say something)
no i think i got my girlfriend pregnant, god it is james mom. jeeese guys i thought you knew. hey james i prefer that you call me daddy, or big daddy. when i think of new mexico i think of a big sh!t hole that im stuck in. i think gkod just took a dump here and said hey it kinda looks like mexico(?) and named it new mexico. and then wiped his a.ss with arizona.
hey i gave advice on that thread. didnt have any and i was naked and so was she and i was really nervious and and it was good and and i lasted like 1 minute and and it was good and and i forgot that i can produce magical love lotion and and this was like my hundreth time havingwell you know...heeheehee it was awesome i was scaredand sweating really bad and i was really scared, but then she told me that i put it in her belly button and i was like oh my god i knew that and and it was really good

lol. thats funny. nope not yet, i think tomorrow or im going postal. i installed dynamat today though. not hard but i didnt take much time though, doesnt look awesome. but im buying some edead soon so ill cover it up.
i dont think she is but im freaking out. nope no subs or anything. shell try and make me take out my system because its bad for the child, well ill tell her f*ck the "child" lets get an abortion, where are some stairs? im just kidding iw ould never do that and if she is ill probably be saying bye bye brahma so i hope she isnt
"Everytime I think of child birth I cringe and grab my nards, thanking god that I have them. Lol. I can't imagine what it must feel like though..."
Everybody told me that childbirth was one of the most miraculous things to witness, so I got excited about it. Needless to say I shudder at the thought of witnessing it again, the baby's head combined with everything stretching out just makes that place in my stomach turn knots and be thankful that a kidney stone is the worst thing I'll go through. I understand why expecting dads used to stay outside the room pacing floors and smoking cigarettes.
hahahahaha I hear ya man I was lucky enough to have to endure that sight twice lol i think people say that it is miraculious because after the fact when everything is all cleaned up that is miraculious and paople just forget about the whole horrid process lol I think guys just tell that to other guys so they will expierience the same thing they did hahaha its like yeah man its the greatest thing you will ever see.......SUCKER!
