  1. Whats an elephant doing on the highway? about 2 miles per hour I'll be leaving now
  2. Howdy everyone, I was looking into some Rigid led bars and pods and i heard that they changed the quality of lights. They are saying the new lights are brighter, I think i was watching a video about the old driving pods vs new and the new pods had 1000+ lumen more. Do you think anything changed from the old vs the new other than the case? here is what the old ones look like, The pair i own: and here is the new style: My dad bought a pair of floods for his RZR but i haven't had the time to really mess with them. I did take them out of the box and the finish of the new style is kind of disappointing. feels like regular paint and the old style finish feels more robust. I've seen a lot more negative reviews with the new stuff compared to the old. Maybe its just getting more popular and people don't know how to properly use it or know what to order? It wouldn't be a fair test to put the driving lights up against the floods. Do you guys have experience with the new lights? know anyone who does?
  3. Just to chime in, I got 53 square inches of port area on my two Atomic AP 8's. I might be blind but how much power are you running to your woofers?
  4. If you ever crash with a agm and it flops over it wont leak acid either, Flooded lead acid batteries will however.
  5. its cheaper not to solder and its not like they make stuff to last anymore.
  6. Because a comp build has a bunch of wires, and it would take a ton of rolls of solder to do all the lugs. Its also time consuming. I solder my 0/2, i can hang 300 lbs from a soldered 0/1 lug on a wire so its not like its flimsy.
  7. I recently bought a few amps from our member Mike4068. He was excellent with shipping, Communication, Packaging was top notch with lots of bubble wrap and foam and everything was in working order when i received just as he said. I would have no issues buying something from him again.
  8. MB Quart OA1000.1 with a matching OA800.4, still use the 4 channel to this day but i sold my oa1000.1 to a buddy who didnt know anything and wired his subs to 0.25 ohms and burnt it up
  9. FI is always a good pick. They sound great but I imagine the build time will be long since the recent sales they had.
  10. The EVL-10's have a 3" coil compared to the DDX's 2.5", they might be able to handle more abuse. Motor weight isnt everything too. What kind of box are you going to put them in? maybe mess around with a few designs and use the specifications of each and find what you would want to build/can fit? Both of them are pretty comparable in prices too

    Exactly what Mike4068 said, you need two of the same amps, Your probably giving your sub dirty power so it clipped/distorted itself to death. I'll give you a visual:

    from what i read so far is you strapped two different amp models together, one being a BRZ and the other amp a BRX. I would highly recommend getting the same model of amps to strap together. (two Hifonics BRZ's or two Hifonics BRX's)
  13. i see a number on the gasket around the basket, 1498. looks like a FI/AA magnet but not 100%
