    Connect two amps to my subs. Newbie alert!

    That last part is really the only real option. 2 amps if you can strap them but one is really the best and most ideal solution to this.
  2. Regular headlights react to the smallest amount of voltage fluctuation. Alternators don’t produce power immediately, it takes a small amount of time to get the power going, even if you have more than enough alternator power. Batteries will help smooth that out but you will still have voltage fluctuations. Different type of headlights are the best way to deal with dimming, but don’t confuse dimming with weak electrical if you know you have enough of it. You are probably ok with stock alt and a nice AGM battery.
  3. I just bought a dd1 distortion detector and I was wondering what track I should play to tune my amp. They have -5db, -10db, and -15db. I currently use a usb with all songs downloaded at -7.5db and want the loudest and cleanest sound I can get out of it. I have 4 skar ddx 15s on a crescendo 4.5k @ 1 ohm. And will using a dd1 make my system much louder if tuned right?

      Have you read the manual? 

  4. Well I definitely straightened it up for a picture. But I have to keep it fairly clean because I work from home 2 or 3 days a week. The other keyboard there is my work keyboard and dock for my work laptop. The desk is also a sit/stand desk. I do love that monitor, way better than 2 monitors.

    Skar subs and deep bass ?

    subs don't have to be big to go low, you just need cone area to do it loudly. My two 8s dropped into the 20s quite easily, but the box they were in was designed to go low. It's true it wasn't as loud down low as a couple of larger subs, but it wasn't as loud at any frequency. Bigger subs don't play lower generally speaking, you just need less of them to obtain large amounts of cone area. You also don't need smaller subs for SQ, large subs work fine for that too.

    SMD what are you Drinking thread

    last night was Corona, but I wanted something light to drink. It's like picking what I eat for me, I can't eat the same thing every time I eat. I really only drink beer, so I keep a few that are my favorites around and pseudo randomly pick one or two six packs of something I have never had (or at least don't remember). I have found lots of beers I like that way that I probably wouldn't have tried otherwise.

    Single Voice Coil Impedance Adjustment

    i won't work.
  9. I have a kid, only debt is my house. Kids don’t make you broke unless you are terrible at money management.
  10. ain't that the fucking truth. I wish we had more people in the industry that encouraged and educated people like these guys.
  11. my guesses... 1. Voltage is what determines a normal headlights brightness and there isn't really anything on a car that maintains a constant voltage level even if you have enough alt/battery power for your system. Alts and batteries are always going to be reactive to electrical demands regardless of how much electrical you have. 2. put a voltage regulator on the headlights and make sure you have enough electrical to support your demand or switch them to HIDs. Those are my guesses.

    HELP! - Killing Amps with Vibrations...from 8 18's

    if your enclosure is built correctly it is probably the most solid place to mount an amp.

    just a thought

    "It's good for the money" won't go away. Informed people already know the company is lying and still spend their money on those amps.

    Power handling

    shouldn't they be able to tell you how much power it can handle?
