  1. Hey all! I was wondering if anyone has any experience in running soundigitals at .5 ohms?
  2. I need help deciding on an amp to purchase, I'm currently running one kicker cvx12 wired at 1 ohm to a 800 watt pioneer amp. I recently purchased a couple FI bl12v3s fully loaded and have been looking for an amp to run them at 1 ohm. No, I don't have the electrical to support an amp to run them but I plan on playing it low and watching voltage till I upgrade, can anyone suggest an amp, would like 2.5 to 4k at 1ohm and 1.5 or more at 2. Budget is 550usd but I'm willing to pay more if it's high value and on sale or if I just feel impulsive enough. I've been looking at the crescendo symphony s1 plus but I'm still new to car audio, (built my first system less than a year ago) and don't wanna make a purchase and then regret it, like I did with my cvx. Thanks in advance for any support/advice, I really appreciate it, -Nico
  3. So my remote wire from back of HU won’t turn my amp on. I tried running directly to a fuse I actually tried all the fuses and the amps turn on then immediately off. If I run my remote straight to my battery everything works fine. What could the problem be? Thanks
  4. Im going to be using 2 kicker L7T 12" subwoofers in a sealed box in the back seat of my 2017 toyota tacoma. For door speakers im using 4 6.5" Deafbounce Arnold M65AN on a Down4Sound JP23 1000 watt 4 channel amp. Each kicker subwoofer is 600 watts rms a piece and they will be wired down to 1ohm making the final wattage (rms) 1200 watts. My goal is SPL, I want to rattle the doors off my tacoma. The question is which 1200 watt rms amplifier is best for me, I need a high efficient, not a huge footprint, and an amplifier that can produce the 1200 watts under 14.4 volts. If anyone has any suggestions that I should change in my build im open to new ideas. Thanks for the help
  5. ok im new here but im not new to the sub world ok im looking into putting a sundown sa-12 d4 or d2 but heres my problem i got about 700 bucks for my full system after the the sub and box im going to have 400 still need a head unit wiring and an amp i have full alpine type r componet speakers form my old whip but nothing else can i get some opinions on what amp and should i go with the 2 ohm or the 4 ohm dvc sa-12?
  6. hello I recently purchased a distortion detector and the problem is I have a BMW 3 series and it does not show the volume level, How would I use this properly without knowing the acutally volume level that its at?, it's the navigation headunit type, Plus if I remove the subwoofer speaker wire from the amp, the door speakers still play loud from the Cd tracks is that normal ? becuase in YouTube videos i see online i dont hear any sound while they set their gains. 2 Amps: Mrv500, do I set the LP filter back to 80hrz after its tuned? 2 subwoofers: Pioneer TS-W309D4 12" Champion Series Subwoofer with Dual 4 Voice Coil
  7. a good friend of mine called me up yesterday and said he had 2 Soundstream MC500's for sale and would hook me up proper. Of course i said yes and to bring them by. Back in 1989, i JUST graduated High School, my parents moved away and i didn't have but a wooden nickel to my name. I couldn't even come close to something of this caliber at that time. Anyway, when he told me he really needed the money i figured it was my duty to make him an offer he couldn't refuse and try to take both of them . I couldn't help it, as soon as i saw them i knew i had to at least try. He took my offer and they are both mine. No, i am not sure what i am going to do with them just yet. I will open them up, show the guts and run them on the dyno at some point i know that! It would be fun to do an oldschool SQ build with all vintage Soundstream amps some day. But just having them in my collection feels so nice More pics and some vids coming soon! Serial #25XX (i forgot to take a pic) and Serial #31XX (also forgot to take a pic). Ill have more updates to this post as i pull them apart and look at the guts
  8. I plan to purchase some Sundown Audio equipment within the next 2 or 3 days, and I would like some suggestions on where to purchase it. No "brick and mortar" dealers near me, woofers etc. is not an option, 800 woofers is not an option, SSA is looking like my only option, so how is their shipping, customer service? I don't want to order from somewhere that has a ton of old stock, but don't want to wait 2 or 3 weeks for a build either. I have read mixed reviews on SSA's shipping times, but only from one side of course. Any other options other that the ones mentioned? Also would LOVE a coupon code, or forum member discount maybe?! Input appreciated!
  9. Is 100 dollars a good deal for a memphis 1200 watt mono amp? does anyone know how much they are new or how good they are?
  10. my system was loud as shit but after a having it for a couple of weeks it just isnt the same but is still loud.. so i gotta ask is it just me or is something wrong? could i be just getting used to it. it happens everytime i upgrade.
  11. So my amp works when i first turn on the radio at low volume then when i turn the volume up the amp goes into protect mode but if i turn the head unit off and back on again then the amp will once again work at low volume and when i turn it up goes into protect. Any ideas of what this problem could be?
  12. lookin to see if anyone has any box ideas for a single cab f150 `63 inches long 9 inches at the bottom 4-5 inches at the top 25-30 inches tall about 60 inches long at the top of the box got 2 kicker compvx 12 dual 2 ohm 750 rms 1500 peak got a concept cd-2410 amp to power them it can fit 0 gauge wire into the power ports and what not, was wondering if any of yall had a box idea or somethin or if yall could deisign somethin it would be greatly appreiciated more then you know, ill help out and supply as much information as yall need whatever yall need.
  13. Whats up im sure this has been answered before but im thinking of buying 2 sundown sa 12 d4 im getting rid of my memphis m5s for these i want better bass so i recently had a custom box made 4.50 cu ft tuned at 34 htz i see no sense in haveing another box made at 1.75 cu ft per sub so what i want to know is whats the best amp or what are my options to get optimum potential out of them sa 12s with this box note that the subs are going in the trunk of a lincoln town car thanks. note im really not trying to spend 500 on an amp at max maybe 300 350 or lower which is always better trying to run them at 1 ohm note that i dont have a high output alternator yet but will get one soon and im also running a duralast goold battery i already have the big 3 done and 0 gauge running to what ever amp im going to upgrade to right now i have a memphis audio mc1.1100
  14. I recently screwed myself out of a deal and need a new amp. I've been looking around and came across the Sundown SAZ-2500D. (I have an Orion HCCA 12). I just wanted to know what the forum thought about this amp on this sub. I bought a nice sub and I don't want a cheap amp that's why I choose Sundown for an amp, I plan to do this the right way.
  15. i wanna buy a good amp to load 2 12" sony subs DVC 400 rms each or 2 kenwood 12" SVC 400 rms each so i did my research and i've heard about this amp DB DRIVE: PD2000.1 2000 Watt http://www.audiosavings.com/products/Mono-Car-Amplifier/DB-DRIVE-PD2000.1-2000-WATT-RMS-PLATINUM-MONO-AMPLIFIER/PD2000.1+RB.aspx is it a good and reliable amp or not is there any alternatives ?? and plz dot tell me to buy a rockford or sundown etc .....

  17. Currently I have the Hifonics amp. I am expecting two new Skar VVX 12's tomorrow. I am wondering which amp out of the two would be a better match for the subs, with sound quality and spl in mind. What would the pros and cons of either amp be for this setup or similar ones? I'm asking this, because I am selling one of my old type-r's on craigslist, and I have someone that wants to trade the p1000 for my type-r. This made me wonder if this amp would be a better option for me, or if I should just hold out for cash and either keep the Hifonics or save up for an even more powerful and better amp like an AQ 2200 or similar. I don't mean to start a vs. thread, because it seems like they are rather disliked on this and any other forum. I'm just looking for opinions from others with more experience than I have. Any input would be greatly appreciated!
  18. hey guys i just got a new car and sadly decided to go from my dc xl 18 to 2 12 inch DC lvl4 m2. i have read goood things about these so i am staying positive lol. my question for you guys is what amp would you recommend? i have and AQ 2200d. would i be good running this? Or should i upgrade to an AQ3500 or DC 3.5k any help would be great thanks!
  19. What is a good four channel amp with good sound quality with around 100-130 RMS at 4 ohms? I would like to stay in the $250 to $300 price range if possible, but something less expensive than that would definitely a plus lol. Any opinion would be greatly appreciated!
  20. This the Design of the box that i made out of my old wardrobe I have build the box already but im going to be taking it apart to tidy it up and carpet it, i will have pictures of my system and cars up a.s.a.p 10" jbl 1000 watt subwoofer toxic 800 watt Amp 4 channels Kenwood USB headunit In my run around it has standard speakers My project car have Fli (by Vibe) Door speakers Vibe rectangle 6x9's (I use them as sub's) Vibe 4 gauge wiring Deep cycle yellow top battery
  21. I've decided on buying a Fi Q 15, I just need help on finding an amp that would be best suited for it. I have a Treo amp that pushes 1000 watts that i'll use to break it in.
  22. I'm adding another amp to my car, i have a zx1000.1 mono for the subs already and im adding the dx400.4 for the speakers. Should i expect a voltage drop, and if so how sufficient will it be? Right now with only the mono i have about 14.4-.7 volts on average when everything is running and turned up. I have an 01 cadillac deville which already has some stock beefy wiring to it. Stock electrical wiring, but I will add another battery as my next upgrade. What can I expect voltage wise when i add the second amp? Thanks
  23. Im confused as to what dimensions my box needs to be for the SA-8 i got in the mail, i know .6 cubes and around 35 Hz, but i don't know how to construct it, i am a noob, i do need to be walked through on certain things. thanks.
  24. Well I just want to take the time and thank you guys down at DC for everything they did for me. A few months ago you guys helped me pick out what subs would work best for my truck ended up getting the new level 4s M2's was really impressed in how quick they got to my house and how great they looked. Also thank you for this past weekend on helping me on a Saturday with wiring my subs. you guys have a great customer service and have a great audited toward helping out people and making sure they are satisfied with what they get. My 3.5k came in today and all i can say that thing looks flawless, absolutely beautiful. I thank everyone down at DC for all the help they have given me and the great items i now have for my truck. I hope to someday be a part of the team and see you guys at some shows and compete with you for Team DC. I am proud to own some great products and i cant wait to hear them this weekend. This week is going to be a long week of anticipation on waiting to hear the subs. but i thought i would do it right and get another battery and get it DD-1 so everything is perfect. Thank you guys again i would recommend you guys to anyone for anything. Keep up the great work and I will see you guys around hopefully. DC FTW!
  25. I've got a Orion HCCA 12.2 in a ported box and I'm in need of an amp but unsure which brand or wattage I should get. My sub is rated for 2000 rms 4000 max power. I plan to wire it down to 1 ohm so it needs to be 1 ohm stable. Suggestions? Help? Thanx
