  1. You bring up an interesting point between high and low level. The only answer I say about your question is your speaker wire isn't shielded like RCA cables are. It's odd that you would have amp whine w the rca and not with the unshielded speaker wire. Unless the voltage signal increase overcomes the floor noise? I saw a video from 5 star on youtube and he had a great explanation of amplified noise as you turn up your gain. anyway, the 10v you mentioned from the high level coming from radio, is that full tilt? I have a rfx-8140. it has 8v balanced and 17w unbalanced. never knew how to use the unbalanced. you need an adaptor to use it.
  2. 300x2 amp. so 2 channel. doubt he was active. Why use such a high rated amp if the handle 100w rms? You didn't mess with the biamp switch did you? If you connected the amp to the crossover to the first + - (TWT in the manual) than that is normal. if you hit the bi-amp switch that 1st + - TWT now becomes the amp for the tweeter only! Hopefully you had the radio off when you disconnected the rca's from the amp.
  3. Devin made me a playlist with one of those Tiny I-pod MP3 for the gym. I heard of BVB but I thought they were a teen punk pop band. Man this song is F**kin' killer for working out to. This song sort of sounds like a mix Bon Jovi's rhythm and chanting rear vocals, mixed with A7F's guitar riffs. -Frank
  4. Travis Tollet, the first quadrapalegic to make it up Pikes Peak, passed away today after living with a C6 and C7 fracture that left him paralyzed. Bad deal man. He ended up winning a few UTV championships Well some good news. The surgery was long and they were able to stabilize the fractures remove 3 disks. Next surgery will be to stabilize the rear portion of the vertebrae. The surgeon said the cord is bruised with swelling but not severed. -Frank
  5. Spinal Cord Injuries!!!! Just found out today Lisa's cousin Jarred Williams #949 raced in Baltimore today. Somehow he wrecked and suffered a spinal cord injury. He was rushed to the hospital and "could not feel his legs". Lisa has layman's terms-limited information -as of now. Last bit of info from the family was -he has a C6-C7 injury was rushed to surgery. This tells me the fracture was unstable and there's cord compression. Even with stabilization, there is no guarantee of neurological restoration. All smart ass comments aside please say a prayer for Jarred. This saddens me because Jarred's only 21! And Lisa and I were JUST talking about getting my ZX7R back on her road for this coming summer. May want to just sell it. -Frank
  6. Back to listening to almost all rock now. Love this band. -Frank
  7. Just bought a Samsung S6 and I'm scared to use it til I get a case for it. -Frank
  8. Eyeing a Kenwood M.A.S.K. on Ebay now. 6 Days left. From what I am seeing, this might be the last series before the change to a dual motorized face like the Pioneer DEH-P960MP I had. I'm going for 1 for every year if I can find them. When purchasing these units, I am starting to see a pattern.....no wiring harness in the auction. No lit screen to see lit up. And "No turn" when I receive it and plug in my harness. Maybe still a coincidence. lol. Come on, the cheapest harness is $4.60 or best offer w/free shipping. My bet is this unit does not work. lol. That just bothers me!!!!! -Frank
  9. Holy Crap! Look at how your board compares to a Older Rockford Fosgate 800a2. 960W x 1 @ 4 Ohm Class ab, looks very similar !!!!! Found this as well. This is claimed. No certificate to visually prove it. Brand New Bare (internal board only) Rockford Fosgate 700s (883 watt rms) I was trying to post this earlier but it said I had less than 5 posts and that it could be spam so I'm just posting the item number so you can check it out: 280161929368. It is just the amp itself with no casing. It is a brand new rockford fosgate 700s with certificate of 883 watts rms. Good for a custom chassis or to get an old ugly unwanted chassis like Pyramid and put it in there. Trick everybody including thieves. LOL. Don't hink they'd want to steal a pyramid. -Frank
  10. The subs could also have unloaded because the prior owner may have tried tp play lower then tuning. I love buying HX2's in sealed boxes. I'm always leary of ported HX2's. But that's just me! -Frank
  11. Cool. Those tinsel leads are alittle on the short side if you chose to repair it. If the lead broke at the post you can push the post forward to make up any length loss, or unsolder the leads, remove the nut that holds the post. Remove the post, you'll find the posts are screwed in with a phillips screw. Loosen and spin the post around so the tinsel part of the post is now closer to the spider than retighten the phillips and reinstall the posts. This will give you about 1/4" inch advantage if you need it. I had to do this to the Power Hx2 I had. I reconed it, but it rubbed. when I cut the lead instead of unsoldering it (I was pissed) I found I was short 1/4". Live and learn. If you're not going to use the bass knob let me know! -Frank
  12. Nice score on the subs! People on here will tell you back in the early 2000's these things were awesome. 3" voice coils. 500W RMS. They get pretty loud. I had several of them. I just sold 4 of my D2 version. I installed 2 D4 12s' in my gf's daugther's truck. I still have 3 D4 sitting here right now. One word of advise. check the ohms of the coils as well as seeing that the coils are shiny copper. These things can definitely take a beating so just check to make sure. Mine all read 4.1-4.2 Ohm per coil. Check the spiders as well. If they are alittle depressed that's ok, since they are broken in. I dismantled a fried Hx2 and found RF reinforced the spider with another spider believe it or not. lol. It was just cut down by 2 ribs on the outer aspect. Also, If the box does not measure 4.15-4.25cf internal you may want to build a new one. Each sub needs 2cf a piece with a 4" port, 10.75" long per manual specs. http://www.rockfordfosgate.com/rftech/library/2000/5_Subwoofers/LIT10683_DVCwoofers_MAN.pdf As far as the amp, these are still good amps. Their amps went main stream and could be found at Best Buy. They all produce power as rated with 14.4V. I believe they are class AB. Someone correct me if I am wrong. The only complaint most people had is that they get pretty hot to the touch so a well ventilated mounting area is a must- not an option. You may have to call RF directly because my 800a2 has the 2 gain knobs and the manual does not state anything on how to set it, other than call RF tech for further info on how to set the gains. http://www.rockfordfosgate.com/rftech/library/2002/3_Amplifiers/MAN3769B_2ChPunch_MAN.pdf One cool thing is that you have the bass knob. That thing sells for $49.99 new on Ebay when you can find them. They are a replacement for the a2 series amps. I know because I am looking for one now! It looks like they have the same chassis, just a new heat sink. Can't say much for the internals. Great find overall! Enjoy them! -Frank
