  1. I recently borrowed this amp from a local tech after repair to see how it would perform. Amp is from 2016 and promises 7000W at 1 ohm. Let's see how it does...
  2. Here's a cool project of making a car audio boombox coffin. I used old school car audio equipment including Rockford Fosgate source units and a Power 300 amplifier from 1988. Check it out!
  3. The PR7000 was Jim Fosgate's first car audio amplifier, introduced at the Summer 1973 CES in Chicago, Illinois. This unit was ahead of it's time with RCA inputs, bass and treble boosts and more. Originally priced at $300 USD ($1850 in 2021), this amplifier was truly ahead of it's time. The built-in equalization circuitry would carry forward for decades inside future Fosgate and later Rockford Fosgate amplifiers. Thank you, Jim for your contributions to car audio!
  4. Hello BigDWiz,

    Thank you for all the amp dyno tests and videos. It has been very educational and helpful to me while doing research. They are also entertaining, "Ya big dummy" that cracks me up every time. I am running 2 JL audio 12w6v3 that I've had for 2 years now on several different amps, from Pioneer GM-D9601 to 2 JL Audio HD 750's. I am waiting on a delivery of a Rockville Rxd-m5. I am curious to see how that sounds.  I also want to ask, "Sounds digital processors and digital active crossovers, do they create more bass without distortion? I know a little bit about them and how to use them. Other than using the sweep and width knobs, I see that they have volume knob. I am not sure if this is similar to bass boost/ distortion or not. The other benefit I see with using them is the output voltage is higher than my head units output voltage but I don't know if that would create more bass or sound " any information would be greatly appreciated. 

    Y'all have a great week,

    Stewart Kolsch

  5. still not sure why my amp is getting so toasty. is my amp defective? other than the heating up it works fine it hasn't cut out or went into protection mode.
    it still does it even when nothing is playing and i have no idea why. theres nothing weird or abnormal with my wiring setup. it does it even with nothing attached except the power wires and remote wire to turn it on.

  6. How do I go about sending you an amp to dyno.

  7. 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...
  8. 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
  9. I think I remember an article where Garry said he upgraded to the 20 or 25kW version and it was like $40,000? Insane! Don't quote me on that price, I can't recall for sure. This power supply is sweet, will turn that power meter like Clark W Griswold's 20,000 imported lights though ?
  10. Us amps 6000 for sale on Las Vegas offer up. Looks chrome. Says $4000 new... $1400. Just thought I'd let Big D Wiz know. 

  11. Dat's one ugly dude!! First up in our 3-part series of Korean 3000-3500 watt amps are the Crescendo BC3500D and DC Audio 3.5k. We compare these amps for a specific reason and you'll see what I'm referring to in the video. I decided to split up the 5 amps into 3 different test videos. The Crescendo and DC are together in one test, secondly, I'll show the Skar SKv2-3500 and last, but not least, the Orion HCCA vs Sundown SCV. As you can see, this video alone is 20 minutes, one of my longest videos to date. I wanted to take time explaining the amplifiers more, thus the longer video.
  12. Sony made a BIG statement with the XM-2000R back in 1999. This amp was listed in Car Audio & Electronics for $4000! Let's take a closer look at the amp, some amazing installs using these amps and then test it on the Amp Dyno. Watch on YouTube in 4K UHD resolution or embedded below:
  13. Here we have John Enzweilier"s 1993 Chevy Silverado Ext Cab pickup with the 90's Rockford Fosgate equipment. John's truck has the following gear: Pioneer DEX-P8000R Head Unit (5) Rockford Fosgate Punch 200x2 Amplifiers (1) Rockford Fosgate Punch 400x4 Amplifier (8) Rockford Fosgate Punch DVC Special Edition 12" subs ESB Audio 8000 6.5" component speakers 3.5" JL Audio Coaxials 6.5" JL Audio Coaxials Stinger OFC Wiring / Distribution Note: this is not an SPL setup, just a fun old school install.
