  1. Crutchfield doesn't have a ton of high power mids. Best best is Sky High & Down4Sound shop for nice comps. I'd imagine a 6.5 comp set would be fine, mid in the door and tweeter in dash. Can also get some coax's for the rear doors or just put each tweeter and each midwoofer on a channel. The LC7i is nice but lots of manufacturers like Pioneer and Kenwood make great HU's. You are looking in the $600-$1400 range though depending on features like wanting wireless Apple Play/Android Auto
  2. Yeah my boy in Sac is a Brand X retailer and the amount of people who come back to him bc they chose to go Auto Tech and it broke shortly after is endless
  3. I will say...never go Auto Tech. Its cheap bc it's junk. Brand X is the way to go, they'll be my alt when I finally upgrade. When Wolfram was selling alts their alts were really just Brand X, which many didn't realize.
  4. My stock alt is like 150-160a. With one AGM it was fine. Even better with the 40ah Headway lithium. No Big 3 and I charge max 13.8. Volts only drop to about 13ish when full tilt and that's running my Wolf 3K at .5ohm
  5. That's the power I have on my 4 door speakers, even without the rear fill it keeps up enough with my Wolf 3k.
  6. I know man, been a while. I browse once in a blue moon. Super slow day at a branch I'm covering in Pacifica so got some time. Last we were talking about was shows, Sky High had one this past weekend but I couldn't make it. Saw Steve was out there. I think there is one this weekend in Vallejo. Haven't changed anything with my system. Though I want to get the front stage louder, the funds aren't there lol.
  7. Me too but you said a dyno showed a 20k doing only 12k and I was like nahh no way that's a Crossfire lol
  8. Looks like another fly-by-night Chinese build house company. Not too mention the name XFire is similar to a shortened Crossfire which is an actual beast brand
  9. Surprisingly the new Eminem album has some bangers on it
  10. Still lurk around, mainly in the build log section. Didn't have car audio from about 2013 until 2016. Been slowly going bigger and bigger since then.
  11. haha unfortunately I don't get on this site much anymore. Sent you a PM though that might help you sell some things
  12. Are you running Spotify on your phone then connecting via BT or are you using Android Auto/Car Play?
  13. Went to the JL Audio Twitter and saw they commented on a tag from PASMAG who shared your photos of the subs
  14. Yep, like Smoke said, Korean/Chinese/Brazilian (style) boards. Full Bridge are "Brazilian style" after being made popular by Taramps/Sound Digital (same company pretty much IIRC). Most companies that are putting out true high wattage amps are using Korean boards. Wolfram has the C2400 which is a great Chinese board for cheap, about $250. They have he W/AW series amps which are Korean, 3K and 4.5K versions for about $600-800. Both series being half bridge. Then they have the O Series which are Full Bridge and are doing 8000w for like $600. Full Bridge tend to be more compact in size and a lot of power for cheap. Sundown also has their SFB line which is Full Bridge, I think the Crescendo Symphony are also Full Bridge though they are Korean boards. I've had an MD3K and MD5K from Taramps, I switched to a Wolfram 3K and even on less power it was louder, deeper and sounded a lot better. Full Bridge get loud but Half Bridge is where the quality is at sound wise (IMO) and in reliability. Also, those more compact amps tend to have really loud fans whereas Korean boards are usually dead silent. You can Google "Half Bridge vs Full Bridge" and find discussions on it.
  15. Good to know...seems to be Pioneer distorts at 32. Need to def do mine since I'm usually at 35/36 on mine. Haven't had any issues with my system though
  16. I believe what my buddy suggests is to just leave the AGM in front and tape off the neg cable so incase you ever need the battery to start the car you can disconnect the lithium and quickly get the car started from the AGM And yeah, Jose from Phat Boyz runs JVF subs which is what I run. Jeff Vue is a hobby sub builder from Sacramento. Love his beast subs lol.
  17. yeah I know, on my to do list. Either my LC1 or my Wolfram since both were installed together and I had no issues before them. LC1 being the easiest to test lol.
  18. Sub Level on HU should be set to 10 At what DB is the 40hz tone? Should be 0db or 5db. My buddy tried to DD1 my Wolfram 3K on my AVH2300 a few months ago but was getting major distortion when first trying to find max volume for some reason. Unplugging the ground loop isolator before the amp got rid of it a bit but had to use a -10db 40hz tone and my "feedback" noise back without the isolator. So we scrapped it and reset the gain to how it was. I recently got the 2660 to replace the 2300 since the buttons on that died, interested to see if you can get this working. Don't think I'll be able to try DD1 on my unit anytime soon.
  19. If you need a car audio shop then check out Phat Boyz in Oakland, solid shop https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jWn0gHYnTEU
  20. Versus threads aren't allowed on here...on that note, DC amps are top notch. Can't go wrong. Also, this video:
  21. Where do you see it wants a 2v or less input? I have an MD5K and have no such issues running 4v from my Pioneer
  22. Fik needs to drop more heat. Still one of the dopest with the bars out the Bay LOL I can see why he says "speakers about to explode", that bass is distorted gonna be careful in the car lol
