  1. Well I set the amp without the sub woofer connected to 55v. Connected subs and tried. Was loud but seemed to need more umf. So I said F it and put my test tone on, -10 db 40 Hz, cranked it to max (un-distorted) ran to the back and adjusted gain till the clipping light came on then backed it down a bit. Needless to say it was definitely louder and didn't hurt my subs. I didn't measure the volts it was putting out while connected to the speaker because it was 9 PM here and didn't want the neighbors to complain but I'll measure tomorrow. The only thing I'm concerned with is the amp doesn't have much breathing room (2nd pic) but I'll play with it to see if it gets too hot, if it does then I'll have to move it.... EDIT: I've been using the amp the past few days and it is freaking great. I've never had speakers above 1.5k rms until this system and the amp is pushing them very, very well. Greatly pleased with the amp. Gets warm, but nothing to cry about and it absolutely rips.
  2. Yea I should be ready this weekend to hook it up. Taramps support left me on read after I asked to set to 55v for a 1 ohm load LOL Still have to trim the bolts up and other things but plan on making the box in the next couple of days. Not too concerned about "pro" look since it's my work car (explorer) but I couldn't do "pro" if my life depended on it.
  3. I still don't want to connect my brand new subs and give them full amp juice at max head unit volume .....Can I just set it at 55v with nothing connected ? I guess I can set it to whatever LOL but want to do it right. We'll see once I put it in either way gonna be fun EDIT: I'm messaging with Taramps Technical Support USA (facebook) and they said to use a voltmeter if the subs aren't connected. Still trying to get more info.
  4. Well my head unit can go to max without clipping so I would just use a -10, -5 etc... bass tone or is there something else less "hard" on the speakers ? They're brand new and worried about pumping them full of Brazillian juice so soon !!
  5. All threads have been helpful to me but this one has answered most questions I haven't found an answer to. Well an answer in 2020. Thanks to all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  6. 2 Def Bonce Apocalypse 26-15s, 3 Taramps smart 3's, 4 ds1200x4 came in the other day.
  7. I got everything on Amazon. I just went simple black box, which was the smallest plastic one I could find on Amazon. Plastic so I could drill plastic easily. Didn't have to solder anything I just drilled the bottom hole and cut it to the lid side so I could just slide cables and grommet in. With the lid on it tightly fits and looks good. Knobs: Any speed control knobs for LP (les paul) guitar Box: Hammond 1591ASBK ABS Project Box Black Universal Car Amplifier Bass Knob Control Via RCA RCA Audio Interconnect LC-1 f you decide to do it and need a red knob like the one I have I can send it to you, I don't think I have any use for the other 3 I have so If you or anybody wants just let me know. There are lots of customization options one can do like adding leds, switches for remote, hell I may even try to add one to a funko pop figure !! I
  8. Items came in today so I did it. I like it. Box is not the same dimensions as yours but still fits in my hand ok. Definitely like it better than the Pac 1 original knob housing. I put cheesy stickers on it LOL
  9. Thanks, Just bought the grommets from your link. I bought all the things to do this when I posted my last comment LOL. Thanks for the info/pics.
  10. Looks good. I may try this with an old RX 200 I have LOL. For me with the soldering, because the pac 1 rcas dont look cool, would be a turn off. I can do it but parts plus time seems I'd end up spending 30-35 bucks when I can get a low tier custom for 45 ish. Edit: On second thought I may try this LOL many things you can put it in LOL What size grommets did you use?
  11. This weekend....its these Going to Chicago this weekend.....on the way gonna pick me up some Zombie Dust
  12. This is what I had in my Baby Fridge this weekend.....
