    Plate amp

    ill prolly swoop it up from the guy and give it a whirl. any suggestions on the grounding issue? just retouch the solder points maybe?

    Plate amp

    gotcha. i know a guy who has a Bash 300 he will sell me for cheap(like $30). He says it sometimes makes a motor boat sound at idle and thinks it might be a ground issue

    Plate amp

    that is a clever arrangement, but yeah, its not what im needing. Im really looking to daisy chain off my current sub and put this conceptual one back in the corner behind the couch for some more oomph. I guess a Micro Tech would probably work, just wanted to avoid the chunky size of it. Im still open for suggestions of an amp that can handle 2 ohms before i settle for a 8 ohm situation. I do have my heart set on using this HE2

    Plate amp

    they failed? seriously? thats lame then :( thank you very much for diggin this deep into this with me. are most plate amps from dayton and the likes like this? yeah, didnt think about the two dollar pistol aspect of that. also, nice euphemism! i bet many folks havent ever heard that phrase LOL so, youre thinking a PA amp is the only feasible way for me to put this HE2 into use again in a HT sub situation, right?

    Plate amp

    dang, i was hoping to avoid the pro audio amps. im terribly familiar with those and just procured a crown micro tech for a buddy not too terribly long ago. Im not against running it at 8 ohms, but it just goes against everything i know about getting power out of an amplifier. just as an example, this guy has these specs 156 watts RMS into 8 ohms @ 0.1% THD, 252 watts RMS into 4 ohms @ < 1.0% THD even dropping to 4 ohms, id be leaving 96 watts on the table by running it at 8. 156 watts isnt anemic by any means, but it just feels wrong leaving so much power off my radar because of impedance mismatching. Id probably be letter off getting a 8 ohm resistor to have the amp see 4 ohms. The parasitic nature of the resistor would easily be offset by the wattage gain, wouldnt it? I could be dead wrong too

    Plate amp

    yeah, its a dual 4 ohm driver. 8 ohms seems like it would be horribly inefficient tho
  7. any of yall know of any plate amps thatll handle a 2 ohm load that isnt stupid expensive? The daytons on PE look great, but only handle 4 ohms at the lowest. I have an old HE2 id love to use in a HT box build, but would like to avoid using a Micro Tech or something of that sort if ya know what im talking about

    Dash pods

    gotcha. thats kinda what i figured. thanks man

    Dash pods

    Been tossing the idea of dash pods for a 4" and a tweet for a while now, but wasnt sure how you guys go about fabbing them. From what i can tell, the base of the pod matching up with the dash is the hardest thing. Do you recommend tape the dash and use body filler to get the shape? The rest of it should just be framing up the insides of the pod and then glassing it, covering with vinyl and a grill of some sort.

    Home Subwoofer Amp

    do any of you guys know of any plate amps for a HT sub project im working on that can handle 2 ohms?
  11. youdoofus

    dual 2 or dual 4

    2 ohm it is then. its going in a 17 year olds car who has already blown out the drivers on my B&W mains because he thought it would be fun to show off my home audio sub to his friends and cranked the piss out of the receiver volume instead of going for the gain on the plate amp. I think i would have preferred if he blew up my sub tbh LoL thanks man

    Tough decisions on amp

    i agree that people shouldnt be here to piss others off, but people also shouldnt be so easily angered. It seems that some just get mad at anything that doesnt agree with their thoughts on things.

    Tough decisions on amp

    "can take" and "actually benefit from" are two totally different things

    dual 2 or dual 4

    i have pretty much locked in on an American Bass XD 12" in a custom vented birch enclosure built to the T/S parameters for it powered by a SoundQubed S1-1250 which has led me to this quandary. Should i show the amp 2 ohms or 1? Im gonna be using OFC 4 gauge yada yada yada, but ive recently heard reports of the S1 amps popping under pressure. Which sub should i get for this amp? Sorry if this should have gone in the amps section, but i already have the amp, and i was leaning more towards it being a sub question at this point
