  1. Totally disagree. More power will almost certainly add more depth. He may not be able to drive them as hard and they may not seem as loud as they were with a fully clipped low power signal, but the speakers will almost certainly sound better, especially at lower volume.
  2. I got one of the "test" one's they sent out before they were released to the market. Came with the mile range remotes, sensors, and siren. Been installed on my wife's car for probably close to two or three years now. Been pretty awesome. Install is a breeze on any vehicle that runs mostly on data. Get pretty much everything you need from the vehicle on just a small handful of wires (some cars only need like 4 or 5 wires). Still has the ability to be installed on an older vehicle that requires all the w2w hookups, but then it's about the same as any of the older traditional systems.
  3. Most of the kenwoods I have tested were clean right up to 32 or 33 with eq flat, any kind of bass boost or loud feature turned off, and usually the sub level a few clicks shy of max. With the sub level maxed out, I usually got distortion under 30 on the 40hz tone, so I would back that off to match the level on the fronts and then just make a mental note of how far I could go with the sub.
  4. Fully understand how to do the math. This one doesn't work that way, or the switch is labeled incorrectly (I've never measured one, but have seen them). I don't know what they've done here. Maybe, as another poster mentioned, they're dropping a coil, but we know that would affect power handling and they don't seem to mention that, so.............I dunno.
  5. He probably means 4 to 2. Infinity shallow subs have a switch that goes 4 to 2 also. Same company, probably same technology. I don't know how they do it and agree with you that if they were simply changing coils from series to parallel, your numbers would make more sense.
  6. This isn't really anything at all like a 360. It's just loc, not a processor. It has their little built in bass restoration thing and is able to sum, but that's the extent of the processing capability. No crossover or eq. It's for someone who wants to put aftermarket amps on a factory deck, and start with a clean signal.
  7. I love the audiocontrol loc's. FWIW, the little 20-40 dollar pac ones are good too. They don't give a very high voltage, usually 1-2, but will give a clean signal and have summing capability. They'll take a much higher input voltage than the cheapo's too. Some of the audiocontrol's or higher end pac pro's will get up near 8v output and accept like 100w inputs. Long as you can get a flat signal out of the factory setup, that's just as good or better than an aftermarket. The axxess and scosche ones have been junk. Like you said, most show a dirty signal even with the pots all the way d
  8. They don't know how to shoulder a rifle or you have a scope with terrible eye relief that's positioned too far back to compensate?
  9. No kidding. I'm at about 14 months now, stuck in the infamous "fbi background check" mode for two toys at the moment. Just started another process on two more cans about two months back, hope they don't get stuck too. Such bullshit.
  10. I ran an ms8 and tried one of the cadence processors, had terrible luck with both. Was looking at a mosconi, but the guy had a twk-88 open box he said I could have for $200, so I tried it. I haven't had any issues with it and bought a second for my wife's car. I'm not really anti-anything I guess. I normally wouldn't buy jl stuff because I think I can find better value elsewhere, but if the price makes sense, I have no problem running it. I think, for the most part, they make solid equipment. I have a 15 sierra, our front stage will be very similar (same speakers, just diff processi
  11. I didn't know audiomobile was even still around. I wanted a pair of the MASS 12's badly around the time I was graduating high school. I run your 3 way set in two vehicles now, both on jl processors. Love them!
  12. Can't go too wrong with a 1911 so long as it uses standard 1911 parts, which I believe that one does. Long as the frame isn't complete junk, you can build the guts over time to change things you don't like about it. I have a ruger, which is definitely a budget-ish 1911, and it's thrown a few thousand rounds down range without a hiccup. Had a surprisingly decent trigger from the factory too. Little long, and most stock triggers are a little heavy, but the break is clean.
  13. Right call. Don't put your life in danger for someone you don't know. You could get yourself killed, permanently disabled, and/or cost yourself thousands to hundreds of thousands in legal fees. Not worth the risk. Always flee if there is an out. Cops, military, first responders, etc-get paid to put their life in jeopardy to protect others, you don't. They have insurance and lawyers paid to represent them if things go south, you don't. It just isn't worth it.
