  1. the difference on the meter from 1 3800 at .5 vs 2 at 1 ohm is not what you guys would expect... lol

      Strap those suckers at .5 and see what it does ;)

      Bad :/ .5db loss... yesss they will be strapped low soon enough

  2. in a daily setup, impedance is fluctuating so much that you are never seeing a steady amount of power for a long period of time. I often overpower all my subs for that very reason. Shit bighoss ran 16k to 8 XFL 12sdaily, he'd be good with overpowering the sub IF he knew what he was doing, and what to listen/smell for. But in his case, I'd keep it at the rated spec x2 on this. Running rated rms power always disappoints me. I feel like those rating are intended for newbies who match amp to sub rms power but clip the shit out of the signal. Setting gains correctly I don't see why you couldn't 1.5x rms or more and get the the most out of your equipment. Sure say you match rms of a sub with the rms of the amp. Impedance rise and all is going to eat away that power so at the end of the day you'll be seeing 1/4 of rms rating. I enjoy when I can put CLAMPED rms to my subs. Just my 2 cents.
  3. any 8" subs made with 3" coils? my x-8's are big but just curious if 8's with more power handling can be made

      I'm not going to go from the x-8 to vfl 8 if there is a power handling loss.. thanks though guys

      Still though, there is a reason good companies don't build 8s with 3" coils.

  4. Great guy. Always willing to help and bullshitting all the time lol. Hit him up.
  5. Oooo another honda just like mine. There is something about these cars that really makes them put up awesome numbers. This is the same class as me. Im only about 3db away from playing with this guy HAHA "only"
  6. 149.3 today in the trunk 2 class legal sealed on the dash in my honda civic. .7db left and I can finally drop this 150db out of the trunk goal.

      Thanks!

      Chris, I might make a day trip a day this summer to bullshit at your place!

      Very nice. 150 Db out the trunk is a good goal. Whats after that? =)

  7. Thats a little short for a mint 3k. I sold my 2500 for that. Your best bet around these parts would be around $500+ sh
  8. The only swap was his amps.... So everything else such as subwoofer wiring is irrelevant (but not unimportant). Lets try to narrow it down to amp ground, rcas, amp settings etc.
  9. Maybe look into one of the mainstream brands? Not sure what alpines mrx line is going for these days but you can always try that.
  10. Plasti-dip the to the rescue!! Although depending on how deep the scratches are it might contour and still be slightly visible.
  11. You also know, that the .5 load test, is reactive right? .Not nominal....Would you wire to like .2 ? I thought it was nominal not reactive. Like nominal would mean that it is always .5 and a reactive load would change.Could be wrong though. No, the Dyno tests using purely resistive loads. It is NOT subject to any type of rise. If a test is done at 1 ohm, then that is what the amp is seeing for the entire duration of that test.Now that being said, the dynamic test is much easier on the amp and electrical than the certified or uncertified tests. I would be very surprised if that amp stayed on for a .5ohm certified test. And for the fact that he simply states they will not warranty the amp at .5 ohm. I don't get why a company would test at .5 ohm load and then not warranty if they are going to brag about results? Still great numbers and loved my 4500s.It will give you an idea of what you will get with impedance rise factored in.For example, as kyle said, 1 ohm dyno will be similar to wiring to .5 in your vehicle. I have to disagree. I have wired to .5 ohm and seen anywhere from 1.2-6 ohms reactive.Should have been so specific. Obviously you're not going to see exactly exactly 1 ohm on the dot every time.But the point I was trying to make was it will get you in the ballpark.
