  1. Okay, so I'm replying to the last two posts, which were started during "this decade" lol But do they realize this thread was started 10 years ago ? Anyway, people used to always ask me shit like.... "Hey, I got this Shimano real for $10. Are Shimano reels any good" ? Answer > Shimano makes everything from cheap little pieces of crap, that are not worth their weight in dirt, all the way up to totally bad ass, silky smooth, ultra precise pieces of high tech machinery".... and everything in between. So, does Shimano make good reels ? Hell yes ! But the one you got is a total POS lol Subwoofers are kind of the same thing. Most of the big names make some rinky dink entry level stuff too.
  2. I'm sure this build is going to totally amazing, because its SMD ! Wouldn't expect anything less But I'm thrown off by a few things, and trying figure it out. 1) Your only going to be giving your 15"s, 1500 wts RMS each ? Aren't you giving the subs in your Tahoe like 5-6 Kwts ? 2) I know those amps are TOP quality, and probably make super clean, efficient power, but it seems odd to me that that they make the 2 x 1500 RMS amplifier (which your using on your subs) and a 4 x 1500 wts RMS that your using for mids / highs, and they have the same footprint ? 3) So your going to be making 6 Kwts (for all four ch) total for your four 15"s.... and 12 Kwts (for all eight ch) total for your mids/highs ? Am I missing something here ?
  3. I'm running this one. Love it. 3yr unlimited for only $169 https://www.samsclub.com/p/auto-group-65agm-36-mo-free/prod9070062?xid=plp_product_1 However, IMPO, all batteries are over rated. No matter how you look at it, batteries are just for storage. What's WAY more important, is making plenty of juice to begin with, so you need to store very little. Id rather add another alternator... or six
  4. Hey Bass Monkey, I saw where you replied, "Good question"....  Well I think so, and its just killing me that I can't seem to get a straight answer ? I know the whole car audio crowd is stuck on the "more batteries, more batteries, more, more, more" train.... But I'm really feeling like this is all false. Just make enough juice to begin with, and you will have no need for additional storage. Still waiting for somebody to prove me wrong.

  5. That's cool. And I never have a problem with old threads brought back from the dead. Often, old threads are still completely relevant now. Still, some guys actually seem to get mad about this ? Odd, but whatever
  6. I totally believe Xs makes better batteries. I also believe they are way overpriced, and more importantly, I believe "batteries" in general, are WAY over hyped in car audio. If you need more power, MAKE more power, with as large, or as many high powered alternators as you need. Unless you plan to sit and play your system with your vehicle turned off. I never do that. I just saw a video where a car used "NO" batteries. Only a super capacitor bank, with like 5 amp hours. Granted, this was just for the car itself, and no high powered stereo system. But I truly believe that with enough power generation, and a nice strong super capacitor bank, batteries are pretty much meaningless. Granted, super capacitors are nearly impossible to get right now ! Urgggg !!!
  7. Doers everyone realize, this thread was started 11 years ago ? lol Seriously though, did anyone ever ask the OP about his alternator ?
  8. Tell you what, I go to South Lake Tahoe all the time. Maybe I could meet you in person some time, and we can see then if you still feel the same Peace. BTW, I don't mean that to sound confrontational. Maybe we could trade stereo demo's... although I'd likely be in my car, and that system definitely leans towards SQ. The truck system ins my SQL setup, but I'm usually in S. Tahoe with my car.
  9. Why ? Because first they say this; "Small adjustments may be required for this battery to fit into your vehicle." Then they say this: "Disclaimer: XS Power is not responsible for incorrect vehicle fitment." Okay, so make one that fits perfectly, no adaptions needed. Especially considering this is "the most common vehicle" (and that includes cars and trucks) on the road today ! I get that it might not be feasible to make a specific battery for every different vehicle on the road. However, at least start with the most popular vehicles, and then have adaptions for the less common vehicles. This would be the most logical thing to do. {sorry, I'm not trying to make this bold... it wont let undo that ?)
  10. I drive one of the most popular, common vehicles on the freaking road... a freaking Ford F150 ! You have heard of those, right ? And then I just saw this > https://4xspower.com/bci_group/59/ Seriously ? Id figure that when XS Power first started as a company, making a battery for my truck would be one of the first 4 or 5 batteries they produced. And the real sticker, is when they say, "The option below is powerful enough".... Powerful enough for who ? For what ? That reminds me of when a speaker company says, this sub "can work in as little as X cubic feet"..... I don't give a shit "what it can work in", What does it work best in ! Powerful enough ? No ! Tell me, "This battery was designed to be the most powerful battery that will fit perfectly in your truck" ! Honestly, I was on the fence between an XS and a much cheaper Duracel AGM, but I think now I've decided. They make one to fit my truck perfectly.
  11. That's awesome, as I'm pretty sure then, I could drive 5 minutes to his shop, and buy my next amp in person, no shipping required ....well unless its drop-shipped. But I will check ahead.
  12. Thanks guys. Yea' I know there are lots of buying options for Skar equipment. I'm just curious what the deal is with SE discontinuing Skar stuff ? Seems kind of a shame. Two great companies having a problem between themselves ?
  13. WTF is this about ? I've always had good experiences with SE, and loving my new Skar subwoofer. Was thinking about getting a 4 ch Skar amp soon. Come to find out ALL Skar products have been discontinued at SE ? Really ? I guess there is always Amazon, but sometimes I try to spread my money around just a little. Just wondering if this has to do with some sort of feud between companies ?
  14. I freaking hate it when a holiday falls on one of my normal days off Like last Monday being presidents day For one thing, I don't get a day off for the holiday, because I'm already off anyway. Then, no matter what I want to go do, I have 10 mil idiots in my way. I SOOO prefer to have my days off, when most people are at work. I'd gladly work every Sat + Sun, + every holiday (works out to about 120 days) to have the other 245 non-holiday week days off ! That would just be my dream work schedule Fish
  15. Right on SonicE is great ! bought a lot of stuff from you guys, including my baby ....my RF Power 1 5ch, which I still beat the heck out of daily, almost 3 years later Oh... got all my Polk Audio mids and highs from you guys too ! Thank you SonicElectronix ! Peace, Fish
