  1. Yes i did spot some ceramic fuses at a reputable electronics provider here in the uk called RS Components. Expensive though.
  2. Problem is most of the brands like sky high, knu, rockford etc all have those fuses made in china and their name painted on it. None of those fuses come with actual spec documents like the ones you get from littelfuse, mta and bussmann. Will hunt around more though and see what i can find.
  3. I dealt with regular blade fuses and the MAXi type blade fuses and found there to be a fair difference favouring branded fuses from the likes of littelfuse, bussmann, and MTa. but with fuses like ANL, and mini anl i cant seem to find those made by reputable manufacturers. how do generic brand ANL fuses fair like in this link: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ANL-Gold-Plated-Fuse-Fuses-Car-Audio-50A-80A-100A-150A-200A-250A-300A-350A-500A/133303852057 do they blow as they are supposed to or do they just get hot and melt the fuse holder etc?

    RE Audio 35.1d

    what would its true rated power be? the specs sheet says 1500w rms at 1ohm but i dunno if it was overrated and is more likely to be 1200ish? also what sort of efficiency do these amps have? one thing to note was when i bought the amp it has 3 x 30amp fuses on it. this was apparently some sort of mixup at the factory according to support at the time and it was supposed to have 3 x 40amp fuses. again makes me wonder if it even cracks 1000w.
  5. I could make the box myself. Local diy shop provides mdf cut to size. Id need to assemble it and cut the hole out for the sub. Odd sundown suggest a 1cuft ported box for the 10inch but the design plan on their website seems to say its 1.2cuft net?
  6. Just checked this sundown sub: https://sundownaudio.com/lv/sa/subwoofers/e-series/ E series 10 has recommended ported box size of 1cuft. So what difference would there be with my 12 inch pioneer sealed vs the sundown 10 inch ported?
  7. iv attached some pics of the car boot(called a trunk in america). also some measurements of the tray thats in the back of the boot, is there some sort of shallow sub/box or other decent sounding setup that could fit in that tray area? would give me loads of boot space. amp is under front seat so that gives even more space up back. just looking for all possible options.
  8. I noticed this sundown audio 12inch lcs sub has a lower vas than my pioneer. Would it also work as a good drop in replacement to the pioneer? https://sundownaudio.com/lv/sa/subwoofers/lcs-series/
  9. What would you recommend that takes up little boot space? 1cuft space used up is acceptable to me. Can a 8 inch ported in 1cuft box be better than the 12 inch sealed i got now?
  10. here is a photo attached. so i guess what im trying to do is replicate this sort of sound but in 1cuft space. its been 18 years since i got the reaudio setup so wondering if technology has advanced enough since then for me to achieve my goals.
  11. Ok i see that i am being a bit vague in this. I have 2 cars with some sounds in. The pics of the pioneer sub is in my mk7 Toyota celica. Now i also have a mk3 ford fiesta and the bass is exactly as i like it goes deep and loud. It used 2 x 12inch reaudio se12 subs on the re35.1d amp also from resonant engineering. I will get some pics up of it. But it uses all the boot space since its a ported box of 4.8 cubes. I guess im trying to replicate the sound on a smaller scale so it doesnt eat up the boot space since i use the celica for the shopping run. Sometimes use fiesta for shopp
  12. Out of interest what would sound better the alpine in the sealed 1cuft box or if the pioneer was put into a ported box?
  13. Sounds like a plan. Change sub now and then in a years time saved up cash for a new amp.
  14. i dont think i can get skar audio stuff in the uk. alpine type r seems to have a lot of excursion compared to my current pioneer sub. what does excursion mean in terms of what you hear?
  15. Cheap really. Around 160 british pounds. Iv seen an alpine 12 type r sub in that price point. Sundown audio lcs 12 seems very good value but not sure how these will sound compared to what i have at the moment.
