  1. Smoke coming from box, it's not a coil smell but more just a normal rubber smell...none of my wires are hot and my cap is only a little bit warm. Any suggestions?

      Gains were also set with a DD1. SA15 on a twisted 1.3k

      Too much power is your cap is getting warm... SA's don't handle 1300 watts IMO, I'd tone it down a bit, but that could be me. I ran an SA as well on 1000 watts and it ran fine. Could depend on box size etc.

      The 1.3K's and all of the Twisted amps are a bit underrated. I want to say the 1.3k will do 1600ish watts rms @ 1ohm.

      SA's can take some serious power for being only a 2.5 inch coil, but typically as you go up in power and push them far beyond their rated rms you need to start shrinking box volume (as with any woofer).
      You can throw gobs of power at it in a box that is ideal to what they ask for, but prolonged periods of time your just going to be asking for issue.

      I had a pair of the old rev 1 SA 12s in a 4th order bandpass powered by a SAZ-4500 and they took it fine for the longest time until one day they had enough and the surrounds tore, coils where still good though.

      Granted even though the power is clean there will be a point that too much power is just too much, and an quality 3 inch coil is by far more forgiving than a 2.5 inch coil.

  2. What do ppl think of ct sound meso componets

    i love them so much that I got 4 sets of the 5.25. Solid build quality and when tuned right they sound so damn good for such a low price.

    This is absolutely amazing. Keep on keeping on man!

      Pics or it didnt happen!  Also, have you thought about starting a build log?

  6. CAB 1600.1... Any guesses what happened?

    This x2
  7. Looked back a few more pages didn't realize there's a lot LOL....But the wrap on your amp/back of box.

    I'm over here in Massachusetts....think I'm gonna go pop my cherry this year 😍
  10. Got a failure to stop ticket 2 weeks ago...so I go to pay it online and well turns out cop wrote the wrong date(month behind) so they're tryna hit me with a $50 late fee HA! I feel like this was definetely not a mistake because this dude was MAD 

  11. the great feeling you get when everything in your car finally blends well and sounds relatively decent 😍

  12. That moment when you get pulled over by a cop who does a 160+ in his personal daily LOL. Coolest cop I've ever met and he wasn't young either!

  13. Using OFC for speaker wires?

    Ahhhh ok exactly how I figured it'd be. I have plenty of CCA think I'm just going to replace all my old wire(3 years) for the shits and giggles. I'm sure something may have corroded a bit by now 🤣
  14. Fixed my headunit, was just a bent prong inside the adapter lol...got the clarion EQ finally working, what an unreal difference it makes. Found out I was trying to power it with a low voltage wire LOL . Remote was fine power was well, close to dead. Finally having a day off Saturday so now I'll finally be able to get everything tuned and looking good

  15. No sound from Clarion EQS746

    X2 on that, this was only a test setup(explains messy wires as well) find it to be kind of scary how they're all so close together.
