How far away does the port have to be from the back or in your case the bottom? You said it should be as long as possible

Worked in a Custom radio shop in the late 90's. Sold lots of Kicker subs, including the L7's. One thing I learned about people. The more bass they wanted meant the less brains they had.

But definitely definitely a win. Looks great I would have changed very subtle things but I would probably do the same. Unfortunately I have OCD and things have to be even if I have 2, or if I only have 1 sub then it has to be centered

I mean you could have put the port at the top of the box and left the sub in thE middle to make it look better lol. Both performance and aesthetic

Well, the whole channel stuff isn't that important. Since you can connect 4 speaker in two or less channels, but some knowledge is necessary. On the Ohms side, never connect a lower Ohms speaker that your amp support, yep you can connect a 16 Ohms speaker in a 1ohm amp, doing the reverse will result in burn amp. On watts the reverse is kinda true. But you shouldn't run your amp close to max power.

You can never compare a manual clutch to an auto. Auto has now and will forever be quicker and smoother.... but it will never have that same slame a stage 3+ has. People like that seat feel and slam on acceleration and manual will never be beaten. Stretching the gears for power will always beat an auto which no matter how built unless race built the auto is it will never have the same engaging of a manual clutch. That is the fell of a car. Today the paddle shifters and autos are made for idiots with money and gas efficiency not power. I leave my low end geared truck with the keys in it 99%; I have had a couple stock car drivers stall my truck 1st time. Saying that 1st gear in my 4.0 built 4x4 ranger with 34's is a bitch and you need a feather foot. It takes most about 5-6 stalls and a few minutes to get out of a parking lot.

That amp definitely isn't pulling 111 amps and definitely doesn't hit 1600 peak but none the less very good advice and very informative. But im sure it does more than the rated rms power. Either way 100 amps is more than enough for that amp, but a bigger fuse does allow for future upgrades lol. Most good brands like kicker, jbl etc exceed their rms ratings. Great video. Love your channel! My jbl 1001ez is rated for 1000rms and will do 1300 on the smd dyno and it has 3 40 amp fuses (120amp total) but I have 200amp fuse on mine because I plan on adding more power to my four 8s.

How to know how much power that amp will draw at maximum to get appropriate wire: Step 1, look at the fuse or recommended external fuse. Step 2, refer to step 1. There is fault in that math, because under load you likely WON'T have 14.4v, modern cars often regulate at 13.6v if there isn't significant demand or the temperature is high, and the "peak" spikes won't effect the wires ability to handle the current. That millisecond of "excessive" draw won't pop the fuse or burn the wire.

I think the max power draw and 100 amps is actually good. You do not want to blow your amp. so 100% maxing it is not ideal cus a tiny over spike could cause damage, hence even though 111 amps. the 100 amp fuse seems like it would be a safer or better fit?

All wires lose voltage over their length, it has nothing to do with if they're oxygen free or not. It's a result of the gauge (size) of the wire.
