  1. So i will have a 2000 watt amp running two new 10" KIcker CWR 600 Watt RMS subs. Sense each will be getting around 1000 watt max each sub when really needed. I already have the box and 14 Gauge Speaker wires and all. Anyways apart from that i have a stock 60AMP alt and a crap battery. I'm going to be upgrading with a new battery and Alternator and hook it all with 0 AWG. My question is what battery and what size Alternator should i get? i'm looking at the yellow tops but still i'd like some opinions on what i should go and budget i'd say is around $600. and just for the giggles this system is going in a single cab F-100 Half ton Pickup with the famous bullet proof engine
  2. I have 2 12" Alpine Type R subs, they are dual 4 ohm subs rated at 1000 RMS each and right now have them on a cheap amp and they need more power. What kind of amp should I get that fits them the best? I see on most amps they say they are like 3k but they end up putting out about half that when they are tested, I need an amp that will give me true power. They will be put into a sub box I am building now that will be tuned to 33 hz. Let me know what would fit them the best.
  3. I'm looking for an amp that will push 2 of the new kicker CompR's that are rated at 600rms each. Ill need a 1,200-1,500 watt amp. I'm not fully educated on running at one ohm but if someone wants to educate me and persuade me to buy theirs then go for it ! Thanks !
  4. Hello! since I am waiting for the ct sound 1400.1 amps to get restocked I found A jbl pbx2200.1 used for 300$ which should put out 2.4krms 4ohm! Which by my understanding should need less ampers due to --> p=v*i r=v/i, v is constant so the current will be lower than if it was 1 ohm. Ct sound 1400.1 will cost me 600$ because of import taxes and the jbl will cost 300$, is it worth to buy that old amp or should I just buy a brand new ct to power the Fi Q 12" fully loaded? Thank you for your help. Ps. This is not to a vs thread, the idea is to help me decide how to invest my money and if it's worth to buy the jbl amp.
  5. Hey Guys, I have an 08 F150 Supercrew with a 110A alternator. I recently built a new box for a Soundqubed HDS312-D4 and it is running on a Power Acoustic A2400DB at the moment. I want to get my sub a more worthy amp and have decided on the Q1-2200D, That will match the subs 1200wrms and still allow for an upgrade later on if I decide I need more. My question is what electrical upgrades do I need to do before getting the amp? This will be my first system since the early nineties that will require any electrical upgrades and I have no clue where to start. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.
  6. Hey guys I want to upgrade the Mids and Highs in my car from the current stock ones. I have a Rockford Fosgate P3S Shallow, a Rockford Fosgate P300 amp hooked up to a Alpine CDA-9887R Head Unit. What Mids and Highs would you guys recommend and what amp would you say to go with it?
  7. So I have finally figured out my problem! Even though my amps are shitty I knew something wasn't right... So my power cable I have One fuse in the hood like normal. Going under my carpet and to ANOTHER FUSE BLOCK. TWO 30 amp fuses. I took the fuse block out and just dasiy chained my power to the other amp (highs and mids) and the difference was AMAZING. I also doubled my ground wire. Please when you are using a fuse other than under your hood beware (unless your amp does not have a fuse). I will take pictures and post.
  8. Hello everyone, I am buying a Fi Q12 and need a matching amp. My current choices are CT sounds 1400.1 or SAZ 1500 , both do around 1500-1700 rms which is perfect for the Q. I don't live in the US so prices here are a bit higher, I have found a new saz1500 for around 400$ and to import the ctsounds 1400 will cost me around 400$ too. Which one would be better for the Fi? Thank you.
  9. Considering buying a new amp for my truck. I'm running a 12 kicker cvx, dual 4 ohm wired to 2 ohms. Have a kicker zx.300.1 using 2 gauge ofc wire. No electrical upgrades. I was told the audiopipe apsm 1500.1 was a great budget amp.
