  1. I've been looking at that incriminator audio ia30.1. That thing looks like a beast! It'll push those subs no problem and last you forever the way they're built
  2. I've looked within the past week. I can only find them on Ebay. Sound solutions audio has them on their site, but they're selling them for $1000. My concern with the Orion's are, and maybe you can help me with this, is their build quality. I've never owned one, I'm not saying they're bad, this is just what I've read.... that the boards and components don't hold up to actual abuse.... I'm not talking cranking the gain, but more like accidentally dropping it. They're going to be mounted in the bed of my truck and it's my daily driver. They're going to be mounted VERY securely and in their own enclosed amp rack fitted with fans. The way the incriminator amp says its built, it sounds like the old school Nokia phones of amps lol. Has yours seen much hard bouncing or anything like that which it would see in the bed of a truck? I hope I'm explaining my question without sounding like an idiot lol.
  3. I'm going right now to check that out. Thank you very much!
  4. Yeah, I was looking at those hard, and they do well over advertised at 1, 2, and 4 ohm. And they're a company, though sold a million times, have been around forever.... though I guess just the name being sold doesn't mean the company is still the same.
  5. Thank you! I couldn't find any information explaining just that so I figured do too much, you can't go wrong. That will save me at least almost $100 right there. I asked a couple of weeks ago if anyone could point me in a direction to learn more about electrical, wiring, fusing, batteries, numbers describing the batteries and what they mean, so on and so forth. I didn't get any replies. Whether it's a book, website, YouTube videos, if you know of anything, it would be greatly appreciated
  6. Lol. I'm only running 1200 in mids. I tend to go overboard on things sometimes. I asked a couple of weeks ago if anyone could point me in a direction to learn more about electrical, wiring, fusing, batteries, numbers describing the batteries and what they mean, so in and so forth.

  7. 1 370 amp mechman, 2 stinger SPP1500DC's under the hood and I'm planning on buying a full throttle 1150. I emailed sky high car audio and asked them their recommendation and they said that setup would push 2 DC Audio 3.5k's and my highs amps. I figured I would upgrade my big 4 from 2/0 to 4/0, then battery to battery go 2 runs of 2/0. I'm thinking though, if I get that incriminator audio amp, I'm probably going to need a little more. I'll have to check out American bass...I haven't checked them out yet at all.
  8. I guess it depends on where you go, though I've never heard of an installation shop that couldn't do that. And I wouldn't think it would add massive amounts of extra labor to the cost. No special wiring. Just either a premade mounting bracket or they'd make their own.
  9. Cool. Yeah, everything I've read about the incriminator says it's a tough amp. Very well made. And being mounted in the bed of my truck, it's going to get bounced around a little. Thanks for your feedback!
  10. Well, start by measuring to see if you've got enough square footage under your seat to build the box and not choke out the subs...I don't know the dimensions if a 2017 Silverado, but I doubt I'd be able to get the right square footage in my 2011 even with a 3" seat lift. I can think of 3 scenarios that might help. 1- my current setup in my truck is 4 12" jl audio w6's. I took out my back seat and built a sealed enclosure that had openings for the seat belts. The back of the "seat" is my amp rack. I had the box reupholstered to look like a bench seat with the back able to be pulled off to expose the amp rack (I used to live in a bad area, everything had to be hidden). No one over 5'3" can sit back there, let alone its probably not safe to do so anyway. 2- my cousin had 2 kicker L7's in his 2001. He faced them up toward the seat and used slot ports up behind the back seat to get the correct area if the box and port. I know, different, way weaker subs, just throwing it things to think about. 3- you can always do like I'm preparing to do now and build the box in your bed and port it into the cab. Exo on YouTube has a great series I watched where he did a blow through in his dad's truck and it actually answered a lot of questions I had about accomplishing the blow through. Hope this helps a little.
  11. I wasn't trying to spread anything. Just repeating an article I read that the person who wrote it actually used skar as an example. That's all. To clarify, the writer was talking about why some amps are more expensive than others that are rated the same. I was just trying to have a conversation about it.
  12. I haven't really heard anything positive about the skar amps except they're cheap in price and in the perfect conditions perform really well... but as far as things like box rise and unforeseen issues, they fall flat. One thing I read was at a perfect 1 ohm, the skar amps kill... but when you factor in box rise, with the skar amps you could be seeing half our even 1/3rd of the watts. Not dissing skar, I've never owned one. I'm just stating what I've read hoping for some further insight
  13. I did go to their website and all that sounded great! I only found 1 website that sells them and they where I think $1,089 a piece. Is that a decent price? I can't ask the stereo shops in my area to pick one up for me. They'll purposely gouge the hell out if the price because it's not jl, fosgate, or kicker. (There's only 1 place around here that JUST started carrying Digital Design) those incriminator amps seem beefy as hell though!
  14. That's been the direction I've been heading. Leaning more toward dc just because of price but I've read incriminator is more reliable
