Just stop quoting me man, im tired of you calling me out on my SLR camera/phone, and now how much my dynamat on my trunk weighs in at.. I dont care if you use it or not, I DONT.

Im was not even talking to you. Its about 1/2 pounds per square feet, Its more like 12-15 lbs. But nothing excessive.

If anything my battery is the real weight killer here.

sticking towels and tennis balls work well for the rear deck rattling too. It probably the cheapest easiest way of eliminating the deck rattle.

The fact that even during full tilt operation of the amp it never goes below 13.8 volts is an indication im getting enough voltage.

Weight matters nothing to me. My car is slow and always will be.
100lb box, 35lb battery (x2), another 50lbs of dynamat for a quieter car is fine by me.

My real goal is to trap bass inside the car as much as possible and rid myself of the some of the annoying rattle

Mods why was this moved to classifieds of all things?
Nobody is attempting to purchase anything or sell anything here. This was about noise attenuation and rattles.
Please move to at least an appropriate sub-forum

I've filled my entire trunk lid with expanding foam...

Did a great job at keeping the bass noise in, along with the heat. When the car would frost over you could see where the internal structure vs foam was.

Dude you are totally right!! Love love love it! Real quality. My Buddy competes and is with DC audio and audio technix. I made my own box and shop in school. I fiberglass resined and used cocking glue on the inside to seal all of the cracks and possible openings. Hitsthink it's harder than I thought. MDF or nothing! I'm using an Audiopipe 1500. It's been amazing these past 2 years. I'm on 1/0 gauge wire too.Attachment 496683 This was before I Carpeted the box.

Dude I need a box just like that, I have one that's 2 cubic feet tuned to 33hz that hits hard but takes up too much room in the trunk. That amp is a beast I was going to go with the RF 1000.1 which is great but the audiopipe apsm1500 does just about the same for a third of the price

To be honest, I have another box sitting in my garage that I had as my first box. It is not as big as my other one, but definitely hits. Attachment 496702

Yeah but you said you were getting 14V currently anyway (kinda confused me). So I don't see your problem. Or is that just the dual batteries you have putting that out?

Stock alternator can only do 1600 W max, so you would need a new one I guess.
