Black F150 Stepside

6 years 3 months ago - 6 years 3 months ago #1 by Tezzating
Sold everything else, have this.. 2001 F150 XLT Flareside; less than 10% of the total F150 run was a flareside and most of those were Lightening.
It tips the scales at 2500kg (2.5 tonnes) making it 300kg lighter than the red F250 it replaced.

- Triton 5.4l, PI spec with the better heads, intake & cam. On the fly 4x4, limited slip rear.
- Magnaflow dual exhaust
- K&N CAI and intake tract
- Edge Evolution tuner (trans & ECU tuning chip)
- 3" suspension lift, 33" Mickey Thompson Baja mud-terrain tires



Of greater interest to this place;
- Pioneer touchscreen DVD
- Infrared reverse camera
- Gutted out some junky Alpine & Rockford gear (gave it away)
- Extensive sound dampening
- Focal 5x7's in the front
- 120A alternator

So do you think this would be better if I ran:
The Focal's off a SoundStream Van Gough 2x 400, fitted a DD 12" and ran it off a Focal 700WRMS monoblock?
Or should I get a Focal 4x 100WRMS, fit a DD 12" and run the Focal's off 2 channels, and bridge the other two with the sub ?
Or keep nagging until the owner sells me a 2001 Kove Armageddon M 15" D4, running that off a Focal mono?

focal amps may sound good but they really don't make that much power. and couple that to a pickup truck and a power hungry DD sub and that to me adds up to an unhappy steve. would the focal amps happen to be those sweet looking Ferrari red ones that a certain local car audio shop sells? if so, just grab the 4ch, run all your speakers off it, and use the van gouge for a sub.

Yeah i agree.....4ch for speakers and get more power for that 15 ;)

Too late. Got a Focal Solid1 700WRMS mono and DD 12", box is just small enough to fit into the space behind the front seat when the back seats folded up ;)

So here's the little Focal amp


And here's the sub fitting like a glove


And I even bothered making the wiring neat and tidy with zip ties and conduit

The plan is to fit the amp on the back of the drives seat, rather than under it.. but I dont have any MDF to make a mounting board :) so its a weekend job

Looks good so far, i like the sexy red Focal amp B)

Is that DD in a slim enclosure? I assume its ported?
5 years 6 months ago - 5 years 6 months ago #15 by Tezzating
Its not slim! 12"x20"x15", thats just under 2 cubes. There's a pair of 3" aero's firing up, not sure how deep.. they sound to be tuned to 45hz.
Crossed the full range at 100hz, and the sub at 100hz. Amp has a fixed subsonic thats On or Off, but I assume its set for 25-30hz.

Amazingly, no rattles.

I totally metered it.. 130.6dB @ 61hz :P I should tune the amp on a CRO, setup the crossovers on the HU a bit nicer, and experiment with box position.. there's a few dB's in that I'm sure.

Still, not bad for a pre-fab in a pickup truck with 700W

guess who has two thumbs and a CRO......THIS GUY!!!! :) (im holding both my thumbs up but you cant see obviously)

although I do not have a meter, so country mike may be the guy on that one

NICE! So i assume it loud enough for daily beats then?

61hz is abit high though, i'd have thought 50-55hz?
5 years 3 months ago #19 by Tezzating
Yeah you can drum out some good sounding bass on hiphop and metal. Sounds pretty nice, I'll have to check on the RTA how smooth it is?

Amps not calibrated obviously, need to CRO it. And the preouts while I'm at it. Also need to do some proper testing.. right now the sub fires into the door, and ports up :P
