    Crossfire C7 3k Amp Dyno Test

    Yeah Boi! Crossfire uses S&I design and is build more like a 5kW amp (and should do 5kW certified if provided 14.4). Strong like bull. I need to calculate the 4 ohm efficiency as the Nendo and DC were in the low 90's (94% IIRC)

    Crossfire C7 3k Amp Dyno Test

    A while back, I tested several 3000-3500 watt Korean amps in a shootout. Since then I'm continually reminded of the amps I "forgot" to include. Heck, I tested what I could get my hands on at the time! Recently, Ethan P. from TheAmpLab.net contacted me about trying out a Crossfire C7 3k amp. He said I would be impressed. Was he right or wrong? Let's watch and find out! Watch on YouTube or embedded below:
  3. Those on a budget and needing extra power for a car audio system are in luck these days. You can get a lot of power for the dollar these days and since the budget amps are so popular, we decided to try the new Ignite R3000/1D vs the established Boss Audio Armor Series AR4000D in the popular "Amp Dyno Drag Race" format. Let's take a closer look at these amps and then strap them up to the Amp Dyno for a side by side battle! Watch on YouTube in Ultra HD! or embedded below:
  4. Today we'll look at the Rockville RXM-T2 (clone to RXD-T2), which is a 2 channel, high powered, mini-amplifier. At a footprint of approx. 12 x 7 x 2, this amp can fit virtually anywhere. Rockville rates the amp at 400x2 at 4 ohms, 600x2 at 2 ohms and 1600x1 at 4 ohms (or 1200x1 depending on where listed). So, how does this $115 amp perform? We'll take a closer look at the amp, try it on the Dyno and powering subs and BigD gives his thoughts on this amp. Check it out! Watch on YouTube up to 4K UHD video quality or embedded below:
  5. I got a lot of feedback from the unboxing of the MA Audio COM 1 “Command Center”. I made two videos so I could attempt to get more info about this massive amplifier. YouTube commenters came through, mainly previous dealers of MA talking about this piece being showcase pieces when you bought other MA Audio gear. Makes sense, but MA not showing it off to the masses did not make sense!! Let’s hook this amp up to the Dyno, try out those channels, then take a closer look at the internals. Is it as impressive on the inside as out? Only one way to find out... Watch on YouTube in 4k UHD Video: or embedded here:
  6. In 2002 MA Audio introduced their flagship amp, the COM 1. This is a six channel amp which includes dual 30 band EQ's and is one of the biggest amps most people have never seen. Let's unbox this monstrosity and see what it's all about...
  7. It's 6 channel, the "sub" channels are separate, but can be bridged down to one. Can be used as 6/5/4/3/ch amp. Flexible like yo girls Yoga pants

  9. Today we are trying out the 2001 Sony Xplod Mobile ES XM-6001GXD on the Amp Dyno. Yes, Sony, you could've made that model number a bit longer! This amp has the infamous "1000W" screened on the amp itself. Is this a MAX number, or does it truly do 1000 watts? Gotta watch the video to find out.. Watch on YouTube in 4K UHD quality or embedded below:
  10. The Alpine PDX amplifiers have been around for many years and models such as the monoblock PDX-M12 were introduced at the 2010 CES. Almost considered "old school" by some people's definition! Today we'll take a closer look at the PDX-M12 and try it out on the Amp Dyno. Can this amp, which is smaller in footprint than a sheet of notebook paper, put out the rated 1200 watts at 4 ohms? Gotta watch to find out... Watch on YouTube in 4K UHD quality or embedded below:
  11. Ok, so some big dummy wired the Stetsom amp incorrectly for the first video, so I decided to make a follow-up one showing it wired correctly for the Dyno test. Let's see if it can do rated wired correctly... Watch on YouTube in 4K UHD quality or embedded below:
  12. Dat 8/0 is skraight up water hose!! Jealous of the power supply, but I gots to build up my baller status before I can afford that power bill. Enjoy
  13. One of the first commenters just noticed I had the wires hooked up incorrectly for the bridging portion on the Amp Dyno. EPIC big dummy move! I'll retest and post short vid of bridged tests...
