  1. Oh yeah, I challenge you to try and top this score on the Tomb Raider benchmark. Highest setting pre-set @ 1440p
  2. Nice build! Play many games that utilize SLI? I've had a few SLI and crossfire set-ups recently. I kinda went back to a single card set-up due to the issues I was having... Can't wait for them to come up with a solution that doesn't require the developers to put in extra work to make it compatible with multi-card rigs. Yeah, Port Royal is pretty hard on a RTX 2080Ti, that's the best benchmark to really see what those RTX 2080Ti's can do. It does cost a little bit to run that one though... If you have 3DMark Advanced it's like a 3 dollar upgrade. Otherwise, Time Spy is their latest free benchmark that most use. Other free benchmarks: The demo of Shadow of the Tomb Raider has a benchmark in the setting page. You can download it on Steam. Neon Nior is another good one for Ray Tracing https://www.cryengine.com/marketplace/product/neon-noir
  3. The ads are so aggressive on this site. It took almost 2 minutes to load this site on my work PC. Navigating the site is a nightmare.

      What if you change the site to the mobile version?

  4. Most of the deals we want are actually going to be on Cyber Monday. Some sites have decent stuff on Black Friday, but the ones following that week are just as good. I would suggest picking a brand you want to go with and go from there... If your going with Sundown, I'd suggest just getting a Sundown SCV-2000 when it's on sale. Otherwise, I'd keep a lookout for an Ampere Audio 2K, DC Audio 2K, or a Twisted Sounds 1.8K. As for subs, I'd also check into the Fi X series.
  5. What is your full set up specs. How many amps have you tested with the DD1?
  6. You've all ready invested into your electrical, I would definitely stick to the higher power set-up. I would also suggest checking out the Twisted Sounds 2.8K amplifier. It's basically a 3500w board for $600. They did a dyno on it, and it scored very well: http://www.caraudio.com/forums/amplifiers/622796-twisted-sounds-new-amp-2-8kw-dynos-included.html Here is a good round-up testing of a bunch of different AGM batteries: http://www.stevemeadedesigns.com/board/topic/189121-my-test-group-31-battery-roundup-round-1/ If you have a batteries plus near you, I'd highly suggest checking them out. They have X2Power batteries, which are re-branded Northstar. If you can't get one of those, then i'd be looking into the XS power batteries next.
  7. You have a space in your user name lol https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=nte-POzdZ9I
  8. Here is the manual on that amp https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://sundownaudio.com/product-manuals/SAE-1000D.pdf&ved=0ahUKEwjZvdiUlsXMAhUKySYKHcbxA1kQFggbMAA&usg=AFQjCNF083feES29oNILK2rHb0A40zydnQ&sig2=UbHyypwEt2S_Dki4VEDo5Q It shows exactly how to set up a dual configuration.
  9. Since you are running in the 600w range, I would actually suggest picking up a E12D4 v3 instead for a final impedance of 2 OHM's and pick up an amplifier like the Alpine MRV-M500. It's easier on your electrical due to better efficiency and they are pretty cheap. Amp dyno's have shown the MRV-M500 is under rated.

      I read the book...it was great.

  11. What's your budget on an amplifier? If you have passive crossovers, you would just need one 4 channel amplifier. If not, you will need two 4 channel amplifiers.
  12. The Pioneer AVH-4200NEX or 4100NEX is going to be about the cheapest route for what you want and actually get what you want. You get what you pay for... That Jensen headunit would of made a lot more news than it has if it was actually as good of a deal as that... It's been out for a long while and not many have praised it.
  13. Looks like you need a re-cone: http://www.stevemeadedesigns.com/board/topic/101673-re-cone-prices/ You are going to want to e-mail them and get a new one. You could also look into a PSI recone. http://psicaraudio.com/
  14. I don't think I would of ever found that last switch to even get beyond the first phase.

  16. I would definitely install a nice camera system in my shop at that point... I wonder what the background is on what is going on with someone else at the moment though. If I had some expensive equipment, like those rockford 2500's you got, i'd consider looking into GPS tags installed in the amps since they are worth the security.
