Just so I have a place where I can remember everything I've done to my car for quick reference in the future.

Sensitivity: 93.4 dB at 2.83 volts, 87.5 dB at 1 watt

Yeah! Isn't it sad? Now I'm thinkin I need a 4-channel amp. But I reaaaallllly don't wanna install it. It's going to be a MAJOR pain in the butt.

Many thanks to sinsear, Nap, and LEC for helping me with various aspects of the installation(s).

Also, thanks to Sound Warehouse for installing the amp originally. I definitely paid for their services, but they did a great job and have since hooked me up with free fuses and splices when I've been back there for miscellaneous help.

If you do decide on a 4-channel amp, I will gladly help with the install (assuming it is after finals are done). YOu can also use my garage for the project, or any other project you got.

Sinsear, you are the MAN!

Self: I'm looking into this. After I get my door fixed, call this guy.

BUMP!

The Xtant's cone started separating from the surround. I noticed because my bass output seemed kind of low for what it normally is. Last night I took some Gorilla Glue to it (with the help of mi padre). Haven't tested it yet (had to wait for the glue to cure), but I suspect that this sub's life is now pretty limited.

Time to begin the hunt again. I'd like to use the same box if possible, so I'm scoping out some other 12s.
