  1. They also said that it was the most difficult laptop to take apart ever. The batteries are glued in The RAM is soldiered to the motherboard and the SSD will ONLY work in a MAC. in otherwords, you cant upgrade shit, you just have to buy a new one.
  2. I have a JL 1000/1 V.2 Slash, you'll need to upgrade your alt, the damn thing pulls over 100 amps. I'd go with the hifonics, I'm considering changing mine to the hifonics because of the current draw.
  3. Sometimes, if it was an option on the laptop, its possible to find one, it wont be cheap though.
  4. I have 24 gigs in my main machine, and all my laptops have 8. I RARELY see it go over 8, I even have the pagefile off.
  5. Steve, love your build, looks amazing. Woodworking is awesome. Are those 120mm in the sides? If so, the fans they use in Dell's seem to move more air, but they're a bit thicker than a standard 120mm fan Model is ARC1212DE Dell PN is Y4574 If you want to get a hold of some let me know. I've found they work better than most standard sized fans. Keep up the good work, map props.
  6. I think you misread, he said hit down to 20hz, not tune to. That's what I mean, if he wants to have the movie theatre experience, movies can get down to 7hz and below. Just my my .02 My HT sub is an old 15" MTX in a 15.5 cubic foot box tuned to 20hz Most plate amps wont play below 20 hz How do you figure they won't play below 20 Hz? All car audio amps say they don't play below 20Hz, but you still see people slapping away 9hz and 15hz test tones. Sanitarium and Gary Killian are prime examples of that right there. Well I know my reciever only plays to 20hz on the frequency range.

  8. Oh. The registry is not some magical mythical being. Its pretty easy to understand and all I would do in there is to delete some boot items in hklm and hkcu.
  9. He doesn't want to buy any hardware for the computer, just clean it up and make it run good. Still specs would help. regedit. Disable system protection
  10. HP DV series used to have overheating problems, I believe there was a class action lawsuit about it. Asus is awesome, So is Sager
  11. You can slot port a HT box. The ones that are areo ported are usually tuned WAY higher With an 8 a T line would be awesome, it all depends on what you're going for with your design. Do you want it to POUND out some music? Do you want it to sound flat on music, but hit down to 20hz for movies? Do you want the best of both? A T line is the most efficent box, and is usually overlooked in car audio but works amazing in home audio because of the large box design. With an 8, it wouldnt even have to be that big.
  12. First you have to realize that you're not going to get very high output out of it, and probably will max out at 200 watts in a ported box (at most depending on the driver you choose). That being said you can run it sealed in pretty much any enclosure. PE is pretty good about supplying T&S parameters. As far as using a 6.5 as a subwoofer, with that little airspace, you COULD port it, but your output would be low under 40 hz, even if you tuned it low. Your best bet is just to seal the enclosure and fill it with fiberfill, it will give you the best and cleanest response for your airspace. Even if you dont have the correct TS, it takes a lot to be off by that much in a sealed box. With the top down I dont even know if you could hear it. Pinoeer makes a small under the seat powered enclosure with a passive radiator that may be better suited to your situation.
  13. So have I, but it was way back in the day when memory was SUPER expensive.
  14. No dude, 4gb of ram, a 32 gb pagefile and you need a 690 GTX to keep up with that CPU.
  15. Geez, I'm trying to make it to 300 to post noodz. lol Anyway, all of those do different things with different subwoofers, tuning will be different and so will the sound.
  16. Unless you're running the latest gen processor, you wont notice a difference in terms of PCI-E bus speed. To put the CPU bottleneck in perspective, I went from an overclocked E8400 with 6 megs of cach @3.6ghz to a i3 @ 3.8ghz and my FPS increased by almost 80, though you will see a HUGE jump in preformace as the 285 is almost as fast as a 470 at 1920x1080 I also have a E8400 I can send you if you want it.
  17. All versions of PCI-E are backward compatible. Depending on your CPU, it will bottleneck the card. A nice (and cheap) upgrade from the 7800 would be a Geforce GTX 285 from ebay, they're very fast and usually 120-150. Memory bus speed is 512 bit and they have 1gb of vram. I would also look into upgrading memory if you havent already. To use that card you might have to upgrade power supplies, at least 500 watts, single rail would be nice. http://www.ebay.com/itm/EVGA-NVIDIA-GEFORCE-285-GTX-702MHZ-GPU-01G-P3-1287-AR-GRAPHICS-VIDEO-CARD-UNIT-/110881364112?pt=PCC_Video_TV_Cards&hash=item19d10b5890 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182131 15% off w/ promo code RW15PSUM, ends 5/21
  18. Handbrake is multithreaded and 64 bit, its the fastest one I've seen on a good computer.
