  1. thank you. im looking for a specific band and it just might be that they arent being upped by anybody. Dont flame me on my taste as ive been feeling kinda pop-ish as of late. im trying to find a band called "Loote". Maybe theyre just too obscure. I appreciate the responses and any further info you guys can give
  2. thanks for the heads up, i have a vpn thats been treating me quite well. gives me a list of about 130 or so places i can mirror out of. I try to change it up just for kicks. Might try Warsaw tonight. Do you know if there is something people are using instead of the good ol torrent sites?
  3. while trying to stay in the legal reals of downloading stuff, what services is everyone using to download things these days? seems like the pirate bay is pretty barren. PM me if this isnt allowed to be discussed on a forum post pls
  4. 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?
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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?
  8. 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
  9. yeah, its a dual 4 ohm driver. 8 ohms seems like it would be horribly inefficient tho
  10. 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
  11. gotcha. thats kinda what i figured. thanks man
  12. 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.
  13. do any of you guys know of any plate amps for a HT sub project im working on that can handle 2 ohms?
  14. 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
  15. 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.
