  1. Kind of an oxymoron to say "I set my gains properly using a Multimeter" to start. How bad is clipping? It kills stuff, so it's pretty bad. It occurs when the sine waves go from curved to square and you get thermal and or mechanical failures.
  2. First, welcome to the forum. Stick around, read learn and enjoy. I always suggest picking subs/drivers last. Start with your electrical and make sure it's a solid as can be and figure out what kind of power you can support. Once you know how much power you can run, figure out how much space you can use if needed for your enclosure, then shrink if/as needed. Then, fit as much cone area as possible in that space without suffocating subs of course. Box design, build quality, and placement will have a bigger impact on output than anything. Each brand ha
  3. I'm still alive, but been away from audio for a while. Some familiar names in here for sure. I am easing back into it and have a few things I am working on or planning. Plenty of GFY in here.
  4. Sorry Kyle.

      Sorry for your loss!

  5. Its super easy. Snapchat doesnt auto save to your gallery though. After you take a pic you have to go to your snaps and then select save to camera roll. Should be g2g from there.
  6. This isn't the first time, but I took advantage of this perk recently and thought I'd share my experience. I am helping my brother in law (he's 18) with his first system and we needed a few things. I emailed Tony at the email address in his sig on Saturday to inquire about some product pricing and availability and wasn't expecting a reply until sometime this week. Tony actually responded the same day, and we exchanged a couple of emails over the weekend. After figuring out exactly what I wanted/needed Tony reminded me that as an SMD forum member I get 10% off of my order which is a huge plu

  9. Damn those towers ain't no joke!! Damn Steve you could throw one helluva party in there. Sure you've been there done that though.
  10. Just make sure you have the big 3 done and that all of your terminations are done proper. Maybe this will help: Adding batteries helps reinforce and stabilize your voltage around the 12.6v - 13.2v range depending on a few factors. No amount of batteries will help you above that range. Your alternator is what gives you the high 13's - 14's that you want to see. If your voltage is dropping below 12.5 ish then you need more alt and battery usually. If you hold high 12's when wanging on it then your battery is doing it's job, but your alt is not enough. Also, make sure you are using a good vo
  11. The patent, and the new ride are both bad ass. Excited to see what's in the works. The years of hard work and sacrifice to get your credit score where it's at, is what I respect the most out of all of this. Congrats to you and Mrs. Meade!!

  13. Ha! I remember a period when I thought there was nothing better than an Obcon box. Always wanted one of their bandpass boxes in my trunk, but they were out of my budget lol.
