  1. ckeeler11 is right my old Tacoma barely will do 1.2k with an 80amp alt and agm battery upgrading it this weekend
  2. I got 2 skar vd-10 in a prefab box each on their own jbl gtx 500 dual 4 ohm wired to 2ohm each side I have a 03 pre runner single cab and it gets low and shakes hard hard to beat for the price and mine did not disappoint
  3. yes it will control all 3 as one
  4. if you are asking if you buy a dual voice coil? then yes 4ohmx4ohm if you have a single voice coil then 2 ohm yes power both amps and ground
  5. I spent my weekend putting down the noico on my doors and the back wall of my cab I cant compare it to anything else but I can say it works 30% of the outer skin of the door it went on clean and easy and although I thought I had no rattles this made my cab alot quieter also I had a hollow square tube for support that was making sympathetic noise being right at the port and this shut that down too I can say easy to apply no real smell fairly thick and seems to have worked just fine wish I could do the roof but thats a major project as to where true anything that rattle but also the bigger the piece the more it can benefit the door skin was a big stamped sheet metal piece easy to slap on where I figure itcould and have it make a difference trried to think that smaller pieces were better
  6. low budget as follows jbl gtx 500 came with adapters to hook in to a full pass speaker out put for about $80 on amazon and it has a feature where you dont need to run a trigger wire if you do it that way its 500w rms pick a sub and box wire it (if you don't know ask before you buy) single 2 ohm or dual 4 ohm voice coil run a solid fused hot from the battery and a good ground I say pick a sub and a box because the choices are endless you can get more complicated or bigger amp but this is simple and will make bass
  7. probably same type of dude who walked with my toolbox never saw that him but I spit every time I think of my tools and some dumbass like him tossing them because they aren't what he wanted should have called the cops but it is a huge hassle
  8. I am a bit confused here we are talking 1k yes? I dont see any electrical support listed how about the basics?? when I did the big 3 I made sure I did a good chassis ground and BODY ground and one to the motor from the battery just for added insurance I have a strap from the body to the motor , the body is where your headlights get their ground just like the wiper motor and all the little vacuum emission devices also one from the alt to the battery, I really looked at what was feeding the fuse block (8ga?) and I was sad that I had over looked that the best I could charge the battery was 8gauge maybe and I have 3 runs of 4 gauge seemed a bit weak I have a low budget battery 800 cca and if I dont clip I dont see much in a drop anymore long deep notes will drop the voltage a bit at idle but my old halogens dont blink anymore still going to get some led bulbs my idle is 500 rpm but she stays at 14.1 like a champ worst I have seen is about 13 but it bounced right up to 14.3 after that note my light dimming was bad before the grounds 03 tacoma with 80 amp alt 1k for the subs and 200 for the highs yes rms I posted a budget build on here
  9. depends on what runs off that belt most items are pretty durable a/c bearing is strong nut belts are crazy strong these days my s/c runs off the power steering belts and the added tension makes the fluid dirty faster but its cheap should it fail and fluid is easy to change I have seen belts damage main bearings so yes you can damage stuff but its takes alot of effort to do that make sure you can flex the belt if its a long run usually being able to turn it 90º by hand with good effort is a fair test cleanliness is godliness so get some spray cleaner (brake or carb clean) and before assembly spay some cleaner and take a snack break while it drys
  10. have you considered running 2 alts? share the load brother my s/c uses a long belt and w/o serious tightening it squeals like deliverance drags the rpm down to 500 at idle the reason for that part it has an idler to make sure the belt covers maximum surface area
  11. well the easiest is to stick a ammeter (or high resistance test light)) between the ground and battery and the slow process of pulling fuses and power till you know whats pulling what sorry man the process sucks I also try and remember whats newest and check it first, usually its the new stuff that you think no f.ing way but yeah uh huh
  12. got the same receiver used some old wood box speakers for my atmos atmos is fun congrats
  13. alt is as stated above your best security I am just wondering how did you set your gains? I recently had the same experience of lights dimming and dang near kill the truck and I was clipping like crazy I did a little figuring and spent some time, I lost some out put but I no longer clip and no longer blink to the beat I have a similar set up 2 jbl gtx 500 on a pair of skar vd-10 80 amp alt and my battery is new but not a performer and the big3 and figuring out I was trying too hard, she hits hard and only on real long tones do I drop voltage but I dont play it loud for extended periods either
  14. Meave I can see you are not exactly reading you just hope to up your post count when you do you will realize I advised he had enough charging for 1000 watts I was indicating that he had enough to charge the system unless he was running around playing a constant test tone the system will charge fine I asked what alt so I could be sure but unless it a 3 cylinder or a pre 80's car he should have more than 80 and I could say for sure no issues I feel a little trolling from you sir Meave Stede and dont like it
