  1. I know it's hard to grasp the concept of distortion if there is no clipping. I will try to get some good pictures from my bench, showing the SMD DD-1 in action. For now, check out this picture of a distorted sine wave vs. a clean sine wave. Your little hand-held scope is not going to tell you about this, it may show it on the screen but unless you have robot eyes you aren't going to know what you are looking at. Hell, you have to look closely at those little LCD displays even to see clipping! By the way, the blue is the distorted signal, red is clean.
  2. Me too. Ray usually says it like it is too...no bs! I really wouldnt expect much less from Tony D'Amore though Thanks man
  3. Hey man, no not me. Tony Janke designed the 3sixty.1 and 3sixty.2 The 3sixty.3 is something totally different and neither Tony Janke or I had anything to do with it. My claim to fame at Rockford was the T15kW as well as various other amplifiers. ah shit my bad... too many tonys haha no worries man

  5. Voltage limit is 125 VACrms, 176VACpeak. This equates to a 15,000 watt RMS amplifier at 1 ohm, or 7,500 watts at 2 ohm ect. This, I believe will cover everything on the mobile and home audio market. I recommend setting the gains without the speakers being connected, just to save your speakers from having to deal with a continuous sine wave at full power. My testing has shown that with the speakers disconnected you end up with about 1 - 3 more dB of overlap. The exception to this would be if the amplifier has a regulated power supply, then it wouldn't matter either way. I just did two cars with it last night. Set the fronts at 10dB overlap and rears at 5dB overlap without the speakers connected. They both came out perfect. Neither car has subs yet, but when they do I'd set the sub with 15dB overlap. Tony D'Amore D'Amore Engineering When you say overlap what do you mean exactly? like you used -10DB tones for the fronts and -15 tones for the rear? Yes sir

  7. It's supposed to be D'Amore Engine2ring. As in e squared. It's hard to see the little "2". I need to make it larger.
