  1. I currently have an AQ2200D, I'll be running 0 gauge for everything, including the Big 3. I'll be running two 12" Fi SSD's fully loaded, if that info helps. I'm looking to upgrade my battery under the hood as well as putting a battery in the trunk. I've looked into xs power, tempest, dekas, etc. I do not know what to look for when finding the right batteries for my application. I'll be using this system as a daily ground pounder. Thank you all for your knowledge.

  4. ok so on my quest to find a better amp than the one I have now ( alpine mrx-m100 600 @4, 1000 @2, 600 @1 that's straight out the manual) ive came acros an older alpine mrv1507 the alpine mrv 1507 is near 18 or so inches long and it is a 2 chl amp heres the spec form user manual 12v 20-20khz per chl 4 ohm - 150w 0.08% thd per chl 2 ohm - 300w 0.3% thd bridged 4ohm - 600w 0.3% thd 14.4v 20-20khz per chl 4 ohm - 225w 0.08% thd per chl 2 ohm - 450w 0.3% thd bridged 4 ohm - 900w 0.3% thd ive done some of my own research and everywhere I found says the amp is under rated but how far? and does anything it will handle 2 ohm bridged daily? ( I never drive far or bump to long so about maybe 10 or 15 min runs ) ohh asking price for it is 200 bucks
  5. Hey im thinking of getting 2 Sundown Audio e series 12s but i was wondering what a good amp to power them would be. Right now im deciding between the aq1200 and the ss taranchula 1300. Is there any other good options or something you guys could recommend? Im looking for a semi high-end amp that is class d and is pretty efficient. Ohh and if ur thinking or recommending boss, lanzar, etc...dont even bother lol
  6. i just sold my 2 AQ HDC3 12inch subs and im ready to upgrade just don't know what subwoofers to get to many options has to be 2k rms + im running 2 strapped aq 2200 at 0ne ohm my voltage drops to high 13s low 14s im guessing i have 5k rms available my box is gross internal volume is 5.15 cuft port is 8" diameter and 15" long 36.8Hz, 50.24 square inches of port area. i thought about team ifs or sp4 12s but it doesn't have to be fi. that's just what im most impressed with right now this is my log http://www.stevemeadedesigns.com/board/topic/194077-04-gmc-reg-cab/#entry2907502
  7. so a fellow car audio bud of mine is selling off his setup to upgrade..... 2 15 aq hdc3s and 2 planet audio bb 2400.1 Ive heard they don't do rated but they can do close to rated... I don't need the 1700w claimed at 2 ohm I only need like 1200-1500 (upgrading from an old alpine mrx-m100) to power my sundown x 12 d4 im not making it a perm amp just something to give the sub more juice until tax time anyone got some info on these amps (I know he hit a 154.3 in a 8.4 cuft box tuned to mid 30s in a dodge caravan w/ 7 agm batts stock alt) but I don't have that much electrical I have 2 kinetic hc 1400s and 1 run of 1/0 on a stock Honda alt any opinions or info would be awesome (getting the amp for 200 w/ tool man dual 1/0inputs (going to be getting a nother run of 1/0 during tax time also)

  10. Hello all, this is my first major build and now that it's finished I have a few questions. Here is a list of what I have installed. Fi Sp4 15 d2 fully loaded Audioque2200d SHCA 1/0 wire Xs Power D4700 My voltage holds well, playing full tilt it drops to 13.7. I have the set up firing towards the rear and the back seats up(Chevrolet Cruze). I just feel like I should be louder than what I am, but I could be wrong I don't know. I do know that I need deadener...lol, but once I do put deadener in should I turn the set up around and seal it off from the trunk? Just need some wise advice from people here. Thank you guys.
  11. hey everyone, i have a question that im just trying to get an opinion on. so, i have a 2000 blazer with the stock alt still (yes i know laugh it up LOL). but i have done the big 3 with skyhigh 1/0 OFC. i have just an average duralast battery up front, and an XS power D4700 in the rear. all wiring in shca 1/0. the rear battery is grounded to where the rear seats bolts to the frame/floor, is that a good ground? Im running an AQ2200 @.7 ohms. my voltage drops to mid 11s. is that to be expected with the batteries and wiring i have? do you guys think i need an HO alt for this amp or just a few extra batteries? thanks!
  12. do u gule down the spider or just bolt it? or both. also the holes arent lining up right on plasic ring on spider btw before and after it was blown so i turned up the gain and bass bost lol
  13. After plenty of research, i came down to my final two options i'm considering: 1.) 1 ssa icon 15 w/ aq 1200d 2.) 2 sa12s w/ soundstream 1600d I'm going for more sq than spl since i have a small car (05' corolla) and i really appreciate great sounding bass. Just to answer the basic questions, i like bass heavy music, both choices would be ported in a proper custom enclosure (which i will build) and i really wanna use less power since i dont wanna invest too much in my electrical system. Thx a lot for any input and u guys really helped
  14. Leave what you have for sale below and a price or pm me!
  15. my buddy wrecked his car and he needed money bad. so he sodl me some of his car audio, I bought a sundown saz 1500d v2 with 1 28ft., 2 10ft, 4 2ft 1/0 scha for 300 bucks ok so now I have a fusing and dual input question my head is telling me that ill take the needed fusing and divide the need fusing by 2 for the 2 runs so 160 for the saz and another 40 for my mids and high amp. ill need 200 amps fo fusing so ill have 100 amp fuse on each run right? and im ordering toolmaker dual inputs is there any fuse blocks that will take 2 1/0 cables and use a single fuse? not needed just would prefer?
  16. What's up guys? I've decided that this weekend, I'm going to wall off my blazer. I've currently got my hdc3 18's subs up/port back and I'm not happy with the box. It is currently 13 cubes at 34.5 hz. with 210 sq in of port. I am having some unloading issues since I'm pushing 1900 watts daily to the subs. I was thinking of doing a smaller box at 36 hz. What do you guys think optimal box size would be for this power? Thanks!

    kicker amps?

    ok so ive been looking around for some deals on amplifiers and I keep in touch with several local pawn shops, and have them on the lok for quality high output amps. (everyone around here with anything worth a damn doesn't sell it though, especially to pawn shops..) never the less you never know when someone might sell I nice aq2200 or need some money and sell an actual good amp. well I know kicker subs aren't the greatest but ive heard a lot of good form their amps, and I was contacted by a buddy at a pawn shop who just had an amp default on pawn. its a kicker zx 1500.1...... does 1500 @ 2 14.4v cea-2006 certified 1.5% thd.... I thought that was strange but yea any thoughts? there asking 200 with my old alpine mrx-m100? little steep but room to talk them down should I snag it for the extra power (needed) power or hold off on something better fyi- funds are short cant afford a good new amp, a break in to my car about a month set me back quite a bit
