  1. Get a quality battery under the hood first. Big 3 doesn't always fix dimming but it is still a benefit to your system. Most capacitors are garbage, what brand is it?
  2. New vs Old I've had them in for about a week. They are definitely louder. I am really impressed by these things.
  3. It doesn't matter if you use 40 or 50hz. What matters is the DB. 0db is the safest but leaves a lot on the table. I wouldn't go past -10 DB.
  4. The long awaited 8's are finally here. Picked them up this morning. I should have them installed by next Friday.
  5. I've ran mine for over a year. MD8000.1 though. No problems. Just don't wire below rated ohm load.
  6. Taramp's MD 3000.1 1 Ohm 3000 Watts Class D Full Range Mono Amplifier https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07F2JQKWX/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_VxhXDb219C5GY
  7. I run 4v pre outs to my taramps MD8000.1. I think it was the HD models that didn't like higher voltage, but not sure.
  8. The subwoofer changes impedance depending on frequency as it's playing. So the amp doesn't always see 2 ohms. This will reduce amplifier output. To calculate your impedance divide the voltage you measured from the Fluke by the amperage from the Kline. Try measuring at different frequencies and you can make a graph. That would be your impedance curve.
  9. It depends how much it is. I wouldn't waste my time for 20 but if its 100 or so I'd go for it.
  10. Send it to the Amp Lab. www.theamplab.net It's definitely broken if you get DC voltage at the speaker outputs.
