What on earth is that! I guess the install is not final yet and needs some finish. 32 subs in a car is crazy even if it is a demo car.

Its a test to check whether you can reach the moon faster or whether you get stone deaf before the flight.

Some overdone job.... some sub's may be dummy ones though (my guess).

Cant see very clearly, but from the construction, it looks like the Elemental Designs ED 7kv.

That sure is a lot of effort gone into fabricating the enclosure, if he knows what he's doing, I wont be surprised if it sounds really good.

For all we know, he might be running it off just one amp.

when the hatch is down wont it form a box now some subs are firing into this "box" and some are firing out.. given the total surface area available and the SPLs this thing should be capable of it would really have been lovely if it was dipole.

Navin, the subs in the hatch are not in isobarik loading.

They are direct firing, and the subs mounted inverted are mounted out of phase to the ones mounted flush (or vice versa).

None would be firing out. All subs will still be firing into this "box", rather than half firing out which would be a requirement for isobaric.

JB, that is why i said it "depended on the wiring" but....B&T you are right, all the subs are firing into the "box" wonder how the bass feels.

BTW seems like the OLD MAN has some AP friends...
