  1. Past hour
  2. I was looking at some 250 amp alts
  3. There's no such thing as too much electrical. Biggest amp alternator you afford and as many batteries as you have space for lol. Not really, but you get my point. I'm running 4000 watts on a 370 and 2 80ah batteries. No problems whatsoever, if that helps. I'm about to run 10,000ish watts on the 370 and a lithium cyber 12k. Should work no problem.
  4. What amp alt would really push this amp (taramps hd3k) My headlights are already led. So like after volme 32 the rca voltage sky rockets up to like 7v. The thing is that the clip monitor flickers but i dont hear the sub distort or like crackle. The max headunit vol is 40 and at 32 volume it puts out little less than 4v, I had played a 45hz tone I think or a 40hz to determine the rca voltage.
  5. Basically, isolate your equipment until you find the culprit
  6. There's really no 100% way to stop your lights dimming unfortunately. You can combat it by getting LED's, if they're not already. LED's use less current, so they tend not to dim as much. As far as that amp not liking anything over 4 volts, try giving it whatever the voltage of your RCA's at 3/4 volume. If it's over 4 volts, see what it does. If it seems like the amp is getting pissed off, then drop it. Couldn't hurt
  7. Today
  8. Hello so I'm back just finished doing the big 3 and now my lights dim even more lmao. Idk but I didnt really feel a drastic difference other than my voltage got up to 14.7. So I was also doing some rcs voltage measuring and I can only get up to 32 until it reaches 4v. These amps don't like anything over 4v so thats my max volume. I set my gains according to a equation yesterday and today when I finished the big 3 I didn't really feel a difference other than the light dimming even more. Gets me thinking now I need to save money on a high output alt
  9. Yesterday
  10. I hook up my the devices using both bluetooth and usb... both same result. Maybe it has something to do with the Sync (Lincoln MKZ). I will try the RCA idea but I fear I will have the same result. I will also take the DSP out of the equation as you suggested and see if that helps!
  11. talk about still creepin. how many decades has it been since you posted? Yeah I see you are still working out a lot. I'm working out too, but it's only my eating muscles these days.
  12. As said in the description, maybe the pre outs need more volts? What makes them bad? Need some help, this may help others. Thanks everyone
  13. Okay. I have 3 Skar VD-8 subwoofers going in the wifes build. I put in one, in a sealed box, and didn't like it. Long story short, I ordered another pair and I am going with three in a ported box. I've always done large air movers, and done tuning LOW... Like 32hz and lower. The manufacturers website suggests tuning of 41hz. However, I do have the room to tune down to 32hz and still have ample airspace for all 3 subs. However, I am a few cu/in short on port area, but this isn't a HUGE issue to me. I've done less with manageable results. I guess, my question is, those of you with expe
  14. Good to see N8, Skippy, and LT Smoke still creepin. The rest of you, i don't remember yall.
  15. Try getting some RCA's to headphone Jack, or if you have an iPhone, RCA's to however you can manually connect it to the RCA's, then connect your phone directly to the amp. See how that plays. If it plays fine, try it from the head unit with the DSP out of the equation. How do you hook your phone to the head unit? Blue tooth or otherwise?
  16. Hi Guys, I am new here... I would give a detailed introduction but let me keep it short by saying I'm 100% a JL Audio fan! Anyways, to the help needed. My amp keeps cutting out and alternating channels at certain volumes. If I keep the volume low enough all speakers play but if I play it too loud (which isn't even that loud) only one channel will play while the other channel cuts in and out. My amplifier flashes yellow (JL HD600/4) so I cut it down and it immediately goes back to green. I suspect it's my DSP....I have a Mosconi DSP
  17. Last week
  18. Me too but my stock is a lot nicer now than it ever was. Still have ole red but it hasn’t been driven hardly at all in the last several years. Been through a lot
  19. Trying to get my build done. It's during the worst time in my life but hey... we all have it rough one way or another thru this shitty time. It's become a job, not much fun but i have a car in pieces than needs to be put back together. This site has changed some much i don't hardly recognize it. Back in the day post would last minutes on the main page, now they last for days.... Happy holidays SMD.

  21. Not an OG in audio or the forums but I'm still at it. Daily 62's. Building a new sixth order right now in my Escalade. I remember I made a post saying trunk 150s when I first got on here hahahaha. Trunk 50's easy these days. Still having fun.
  22. If anyone else has more experience than i and can provide me some help id be grateful
  23. I cant get WINISD to accept the parameters given by skar audio. you posted parameters on loud speaker data base for the 2 ohm skar zvx 18. i wanted to know if u measured them youself. I haven't the tools to do so myself. the recommendations for a ported box they give doesn't dd up to me. my email is [email protected], id appreciate your help
  24. Thanks for the reply. The BDC4s I have are dual 4 ohms, so I can wire them down to 1 ohm. I know that I wouldn't see 3000 rms from the Bully amp due to box rise and my alternator output. I'm just looking for suggestions on the better setup or any suggestions using this equipment.
  25. I don't always post but I'm here quite a bit but there was a brief stint that I was away. Life got in the way
  26. I recently sold my two Skar SDR12D2's in their Harmony Audio ported enclosure w/ 5.5 cubic feet & tuned at 30hz that I was pushing with a Kenwood KAC-9106D that I had wired at 1000watts RMS / 2000watt MAX @ 2ohms, the subs are rated at 600w RMS/1200 MAX so this should be just under their limit if the amp puts out true power, it seemed to push them hard with the gain turned at 3/4, all bass boosts off, HPF @100hz and subsonic @20hz, I originally was running an Audio Dynamics LC2i LOC to power the RCA's from the factory Mark Levinson subwoofer amp to my Kenwood amp but recently installed an
