  4. I am getting so tired of this shit. I can go to any forum, lots of channels on YT, even my own.......FB and other sites, and see people talking shit. I see people all the time talking about how "i asked a simple question and steve blocked me, he is an asshole" and other things like that. Totally making themself look innocent. Then i pull up the log of what they said to me and its usually a Vial, HATE FILLED, asshole, dickhead or just plain rude ass comment. I might be guilty of responding back in kind, i can't help it depending on what is said. Then when i do that, i am an even bigger as

  7. just like it says.... you got one of those garbage volt meters, with the adjustment screw on the back? Chances are, it will break soon. Even if it doesn't, how can you trust a volt meter, that you get to choose the reading? How ridiculous is that? If you had a DMM with an adjustment screw, would you trust it? For voltage? how about impedance? If you had 4ohm speaker reading 3.6 ohms, should it be ok to adjust it to read 4? How about if you were checking a diode and it said the electronic flows from A to B......but you didn't agree, so you switched it so now it reads B to A? would you trust t

  8. guys, these are in full production mode right now. I am hoping to have them within a week, week and a half......maybe 2. I know i said March but i waited too long before dropping the cash to get it started. Its a pretty expensive piece to build and a heck of a check to write to get the process started. The first phase of the release is as follows: just a raw unit like the ones you saw online. Adjustable, everything else, a really cool piece.....but you will have to get creative on your install to make it look right. We are in the process of having a smoked faceplate tooled for it to ma

  9. a few months back, one of my youtube buddies got his shit stolen and when i saw the video it really bothered me to see someone go through what i have gone through a few times in my life. Getting your car broken into, even if they just rifled through your glove box and took nothing, is a terrible feeling.....but losing an entire system is the worst. So i thought about it for a while, what can i do to help this guy. I made a few phone calls and arranged getting him at least some of his stuff back. He was running JL Audio but i don't know anyone at JL so i called my boys at Rockford. Now kee

  13. guys, this site is supposed to be a friendly place to hang out. Everyone isn't always going to get along, some people are way overly sensitive.... but for real, some of you are straight up assholes towards each other. This IS NOT the place. Go to some other shit forum where the admins and mods don't care but don't do it here. I am getting tired of reading the most terrible posts and for what? for nothing. I am just going to ban any and all who think this is a place to start some shit with the next man. I will also personally go into your settings and block you from being able to see whoev

  14. So since DC is a build house and not a retailer its really odd for someone to knock on the office doors but last week thats what happened, The man on the other side said he drove 4 hours because of a woofer issue that the 2 different shops he had working on it could not figure out. They both had blamed the subwoofer for it not being able to handle 2000 watts. He explained to me he had spent a lot of money on our product and was really unhappy with it. its rms is at 2200 so he would expect it to take the 2000 watt amp he had it hooked up to. He explained he had purchased a DC XLm2 12 from a ret

  17. I got into Car Audio in the 1980s, long before the Internet. Obviously, the Internet is the largest free exchange of knowledge our world has ever seen. However, with fact also comes fiction. The following, are all Myths - no matter how much you'd like to believe in them. Inconveniences such as the Laws of Physics prevent a myth from ever becoming a fact. 1. "Clamping" is an acceptable way to measure the power output of an amplifier. By far and away, this has to be the biggest myth ever purported in the history of car audio. Quite simple really - the laws of Physics don't permit it. As

  19. So since I found it funny And since someone thinks they can make demands I'll answer his demands. No. The links stay. Everythign stays. You should be proud that your mom is a standup woman who understands the right and wrong. Its just too bad you didnt Stephen. Its also too bad you didnt think about what mail fraud felonies would do to your poor little young life. I am surprised by the audacity you have by making demands after trying to screw someone over on a deal you should have never been doing. In case you didnt notice. you are now in bright pink. You also have no rights on the forum. You

  22. alright, So after pages of suggestions heres what I got for a concept woofer for ya, This will be The 8 m3 Its subject to me making some changes here or there if I see its needed but the concept is here and Im now starting the toolings to build the parts for this driver. Dont ask me for specs, Im still working out some details that answers to questions like that will all depend on how certain parts of it turn out. Time for some eye candy.

  24. Isn't it nice when everyone is cool, getting along and barely any attitude in the air? The wave of fucktards has subsided and everything is back to normal, just like i knew it would. Sometimes we gotta play "whack-a-mole" to get rid of trouble makers, even when those trouble makers are long time members. True colors ALWAYS eventually show through and it is no skin off my back to get rid of them and quickly forget they ever existed. After a few days, their tirade and attempted attacks on this forum settle down....but in the end, they are still gone, i am still here, and the place becomes nic

  26. well its a long story, no need to tell it.....but lets say this. Your boy JP was done a lot of shit to piss me off as well as a lot of others before me. I have every reason not to like the guy. BUT. I am never mad at anyone forever. I feel that karma kicked in hard with that horrifying install and the hundreds of shit talking comments that followed. I feel like the guy has had enough. I think he got his payback and i didn't even have to dish it out, someone else did it instead. That being said, i don't feel like being mad any more. I doubt he can read this since the account is prob

  27. I'm sure most people here have come across the "12-16 sq in of port area per cube" guideline for slot ports and the "9-12 sq in per cube" for aeros. The problem with both of these is they only consider box volume. Both input power and tuning frequency, along with box volume, have a great effect on how much port area you need. This is why myself and many others recommend NOT using those rules of thumb. Online you can find several websites (such as carstereo.com) that have port area calculators using the formulas developed by Dickason or Small. These have a similar problem of ignoring input

  28. Good day guys. My name Eduard, im CEO of PRIDE CAR AUDIO. Glad to welcome you all on this wonderful forum. Need few days, and I will prepare our section properly. One member asked in last theme : " PRIDE its new name of Red Star Audio?" Will be correct to say - NO. "Red Star" was small start up of one my friend. He is engineer. After his first step i invested money and my vision to my company, we (team Pride, where now working engineer which started RSA) changed many things from basic point (idea how and what we will do), spent much money for mistakes, new machines, new materials, technolo

  29. -Resistance is NOT Impedance. -Volts * Amps does NOT equal Watts in AC land -You can NOT use an AC voltmeter and AC current meter to get true power unless you are powering a resistor and are using a scope or clipping detection device. I don't care what your friend the "electrician" said. -You can NOT use a DMM to measure impedance -Clipping is NOT DC -There is NO SUCH THING as Watts RMS (though we use it in audio) -WTH is "Box Rise" -The word "subsonic" to describe low frequency audio is TOTALLY incorrect -CCA wire is NOT OK -Class D is not better, it's cheaper WTH is Class D?

  30. Still around... Long story short I was hanging around the wrong crowd and got addicted to heroin. Tried getting help and ended up relapsing. Then got arrested and did 6 months in county. I've been out for a month now and don't plan on ever going back to that chaotic lifestyle. Currently just trying to get back on my feet. No car and no job but I am clean! I also would like to apologize to anyone that I have hurt or fucked over in the process. Those were never my intentions and it will obviously take some time to gain some trust back but the SMD family is worth it Swung by Steve's shop toda

  35. Let me start out by saying this. I have NO CLUE what is going on with the AA SMD woofer. Every 3-6 months i hear "its going to come out". Lots of silence in between. I have a Van which needs woofers and a Civic which is almost done but needs the RE MT's replaced. I was planning on the v2 SMD subs for those projects. As of right now, i have no idea if that is ever going to happen. Any Joe off the street knows as much as i do. Nothing. That being said, while i wait to see what's going to happen, i have this 91' Toyota Tercel sitting there, with 2 cylinders still pumping out about 20hp of pure
