  1. that looks sick, i like a good zip tie job vs split loom anyday now if i could find a hook up on wire so i can start upfitting povs it would be on lol
  2. what ever happened to "assman" and bill? seem's like all the older folk just took time away or something, and galatic monkey? i dunno if he was banned or not, been a while and who was the dude with the acura car that changed the box in it about every month? had 4 kicker comp vr 12's in it off of pg amps? had some good fg skills i thought
  3. i think its made for spraying fields and what knot, could be transformer tho
  4. im thinking if you glue the thermocuple to the radiator you could possibly sense engine temp with the temp guage, i would also love for tony to make some custom guage like fuel and what knot, man if u did make tacomitors i think they would fly off the shelfs to car guys, i love the look of analog meters but with the accuracy of digital meters, some sweet stuff ya'll have come up with, great work, and they look sick as hell now if a vu din mount with a separate circuit board so u could maby put a temp and voltage guage in the middle of the 2 would be sick as hell looking, dunnot how much trouble it would be tho,
  5. never seen the 4 channel ones, i got a 2ch majestic amp does ok for a 90's amp i think, not alot of power tho
  6. blazer sounds killer man since u like abandon all ships, try this song out, its a little different n weird but i like the beat to it this video better, other one was kinda ehh lol prolly something u would like to, good band
  7. no, ive had that same amp, great amp, mitek who makes mtx audio also makes coustic, that amp needs atleast 4guage and try not to run it lower than 2ohm stereo, they tend to get hot the 3 30amp fuses just helps your circuit board from burning up due to over powering your amp and what knot i had a mtx 500d that i wired to i think .5ohm or maby lower than that n i blew one of the "internal" fuses, replaced it and wala for that amp ied try to run a inline fuse of atleast 80amps if u got it wired to 2ohm stereo, cause when i had mine it kept blowing my 60amp inline fuse due to amp trying to put out more power than its getting coustic makes some good amps, but why u have 3 30amp fuses is due to the requirements of the amp, i guess u could say if u was to clip it enough to get it to put out more than rated power into a 12v signal to subs it will blow a fuse instead of amp, and also help with hooking up the amp backwards, ie pos to neg and neg to pos
  8. i just wonder what it will sound like when everything is acually hooked up vs the shit they did, he's lucky from running it on just batteries didn't burn shit up could have good potential i love big setups
  9. whats the water level in the batteries? if its low it could cause them to read a little low ya those deepcycle 6v batteries aint cheap, i think ours cost $750 and we just have 6 i wonder if u could run 3-4 12v marine/deep cycle batteries in series instead of 7 6v? could be cheaper but i dunno if resurve is the same, imo if it would work maby 3-4 everstart maxxx batteries to get said voltage if u need anything, heres a link to some info on soem things http://www.everythingcarts.com/ hope that helps
  10. mtx designed a box for this that they sold with it, might check there site, but some of there boxs are not the best but they work
  11. folded horns get louder due to space, i dunno how a 4th order would sound in a big area, buddy of mine had some b&w 3ways with 18's and u could feel the "midbass" like 2-300ft away something like this http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?Partnumber=246-406 most pa drivers do there best in the right box, and they dont need extreme xmax to acheve this either, dudes 3ways where getting 150w if that and was loud as hell, and 18'' hardly moved depends if inside or outside, but inside a good slot ported box will work, outside a folded horn does better heres a video of what im talking about hope this helps
  12. pritty much, but most car crossovers are built a little better and usally take more power but in some cases, home audio is built a little better, thats why most of em dont need to be lower than 8ohms and dont take much power to get loud this is different from pa audio tho, my buddy had one hell of a setup in the shop, 2 b&w i think 3ways with 18'' slot ported, horn mid n horn tweet, ran from a realistic 300w 2ch radio and got loud as shit for 150wrms each side, and they take 1000rms each lol, just make sure ur boxs are good for the speakers, are u useing the pa style mids, and if u want loud ied try either 8's or something, but being its going in ur car after collage i can see where 6&1/2's would work, but the bigger mids aint that much more, and would help to keep up with the super tweets, just my .02 good luck with what ever man, should be a killer party setup, imo ied look at pawnshops and what knot for a powered sub like u would use in a home surroundsound setup to hook up with it to help the bass output
  13. ya, most of the xovers ive got the ohm load is mostly on mid/woofer than tweet, but a little info about a speakers ohm load is that, the ohm load a speaker u see has is at rest (not moveing) when moveing it gives or takes resistance (goes up in ohm load or down) why theres a set point is that it gives u something to base off of so u got it in your mind where ur at with something so u dont blow up stuff thats why u hear about "independance rise" while a sub is in a box but with an amp, depending on your budget ied pick up something like this http://www.audiosavings.com/products/DJ-Professional-Amplifier/TECHNICAL-PRO-1500-WATT-INTEGRATED-DJ-AMPLIFIER-PRE-AMP/RXB503.aspx its cheap, should do good for what u want, and its not a car amp, should give u a cleaner power output, i mean its not the best ie crown and what knot, but its good for the price
  14. ya, a dc power alt is about the same price as a new replacement, but i know of an alt place but he dont like aftermarket alts, prolly cause they cost him buisness due to them not being made out of shit like stock stuff is i checked both batteries apart and front is like 12.5 or so, and rear is 12.3-12.4, would be a bitch to take the + terminal off, i was gunna try that but to much wire changeing, my power wire is stiff as hell but when im stoped my voltage goes down to 12v or so and when i go it goes back up again, i dont think its susposto do that that fast but then again i think it might be a voltage regulator going bad in the alt making it do this, i mean if belt was slipping it would make a noise, i dont make a noise anymore i have nere no time to work on shit but i'll try to see what i can do this weekend thankx for the feedback tho ppl
  15. Well,somewhat of an update, I risked it this morning and drove my truck the 30+ miles to work and about a mile away from his house my voltage went from 11.4 to 12.6,12.8, 13.4, 13.8,14.2 OK now wtf is going on with it? Maby its not all the way gone? I guess its OK
