  1. not to be blunt but ummmm....... to the frame, as short of a run from the battery and the alt as possible
  2. ok lemme try this again... picked this up over the weekend. been wanting a rifle for a while a finally had a little money to go stroll through the gun show and look. only had around $500 to spend but saw this and liked it enough. got for $600. i feel like i at least didnt get ripped off, only one i saw with a brand i actually know, and had the foregrip and sight, their both base model but for me its good enough for now.

  4. lithium is definitely where its at if long term demoing is your goal, for SPL its not the best but will work because the voltage does stay in the 12's, with continuous output, rather than caps which have output at a higher voltage but voltage drops off quicker. as for your other questions, lithiums are fine paired with AGM batteries, they just have mildly different floating voltages so when your vehicle is off the lithium will be drained down to battery level, but its not a problem as long as you have a good alternator. also you can charge lithium with a regular battery charger, but unlike AGM, you cannot leave it to "maintain" the battery, they need to be charged then taken off the charger since they can be over charged and become volatile. you just have the watch the voltage and take it off once it reaches peak charge voltage, a lithium battery charger will simply know when to stop so you dont have to watch it, along with cycle the battery for you to keep it alive longer
  5. update looks sweet but why are the notifications set to send only to email and not actually on SMD, it says the admin has it blocked so theres no way to stop getting emails for every topic youre subscribed too?
  6. thats pretty awesome. although when it comes to larger amounts of power i would be a little skeptical because neo magnets are made of ceramic, and coated in nickel. and only the nickel coating is conductive, not the magnet itself. but being such a small connection id think it wouldnt be too bad with small power, since the electrons dont have to travel very far, now stack 50 magnets together and do the same thing and resistance would definitely play a part. i also think about the heat created by having a current pass though the magnet, and the build up over time potentially affecting the magnetization, and the resistance the heat increase causes. i also just read that when you pass a current through a magnet, the flow of electrons in one direction, affects the poles on the magnets since they flow in both directions, and can negatively affect the magnetic bond. something to think about, seems like an awesone idea though.
  7. they can spin in reverse but you will see... i think its ....around 25% less output because of the fans not spinning properly. its been done before though
  8. glad everything is on the path to getting better, the audio community would be at a loss without your knowledge
  9. thank you for the incredibly detailed explanation of how the crossover works. That puts fact to what i assumed to be true i just had no justification. but as stated in my example/question i had the AMM-1 hooked up to the speaker wire that is coming directly from the amp, into the 2-way passive crossover. From your explanation it seems that since the amp is seeing a constant 4 ohm load, the AMM-1 should also register a 4ohm load when calculating its figures. Yet i have been unable to get a proper live, or dyno, power reading from the AMM-1 with this configuration. So if i am trying to measure the complete output from the amplifier to the component set, what have i done wrong?
