  1. Me as well, especially since I have one of their subwoofers.
  2. and 100% output too. I'm just wondering if that 12 amp rating is an average draw rather than max draw.
  3. I’m lower than novice when it comes to electricity, but 2k watts at 120V is about 16amps I think...so 12 amps isn’t that far off, considering the extreme dynamics of home theatre bass, is it? Again, my understanding is lower than novice so I could be way off here.

    Alternator or Battery

    Alternators are slow to respond to voltage changes though. Even with enough alternator amperage to meet your needs you would want some battery reserve. I still think starting with an extra battery (or just an upgraded one) is the right first step if you are unsure you need to upgrade both.

    2 questions regarding sealed enclosures

    A divider would be around .1 cubes. So if you are at 2.74 now that would put you at 2.64, I think you would be just fine.
  6. Box looks great. Nothing wrong with those subs either.

    Rockville dB45 4 channel

    Hell yeah man I’m glad it’s working out for you!

    Rockville dB45 4 channel

    You tuned your mids on -10. Glad it sounds good for you though! Good info to know for people who want a cheaper 4 channel. Also lol at birthsheet says 600watts and box says 3200watts...
  9. your front speakers would be playing the right signal and your rear speakers would be playing the left.
  10. A single plug for the sub you mean? Sub outputs are mono so splitting it will be fine.
  11. That would sound terrible. Keep it simple, run the front speakers on channel 1 & 2 using the front RCA output. Run the sub bridged on 3 & 4 using the SUB RCA output. The rears you can just ignore or use the headunit power.
  12. Finally got it back. Got the cam upgrade (I don't remember which one off the top of my head), Trask Assault 2 - 1 exhaust, and some other things necessary to make it all worth while. Only got an idle video so far, no riding video. I did take it out for a spin and damn. Nice power upgrade but the sound is beyond what I expected.

    How to clamp for power and find impedance rise

    Yep, I think so anyway...

    How to clamp for power and find impedance rise

    I thought Tony D. Said clamping wasn’t accurate.

    Wire size for subwoofer

    I thought current was related to wire size and voltage was related to the insulation capabilities. --this might be semantics though...we might be saying the same thing.
