  1. I'm not a pro in this area so please be patient. I recently had my sub installed at a shop in my area along with an amp and a lc7i. Whenever I crank the volume up I get this low rumbling sound from the sub. It makes this noise even when there is no bass in the music I'm listening to (i.e. intro, outro). However, it doesn't make this noise while the music is paused. When I looked in my trunk i noticed that they ran all of my signal cables with my power and ground, so I figure there's a ground issue. I went back to have it looked at and the guy told me that since my car is so small it will make that noise due to the amount of bass that I have, and if it was in the trunk of a small car instead of the back of an suv I wouldn't hear it. None of this sounds correct to me, am I correct in assuming that he was just being lazy? I also noticed that my bass knob does not turn my amp all the way off. When the knob is all the way down I can still hear my sub, just at a much lower volume. Is this normal? Oh yeah, due to my sub being a 2ohm and my amp not being 1ohm stable I am forced for now to operate at a 4ohm load. This is only pushing 750 watts to a sub that 1100 watts is recommended for. The instructions say that I can safely power it with 500-1200 watts rms. Could this be a contributing factor? 2009 BMW X3 single Kicker Comp Q 15 Kicker ZXS1500.1 Audiocontrol LC7i

  3. i received this amp a few months ago and tried to get it to work, powers up (lights up) but not sure on troubleshooting, i know my wiring is good bc my other amp works... thanks in advance
  4. Anyone can build a woofer box, slap some carpet on it, and with basic instructions of hooking up an amp, let the gear do its job and make you look like the hero... But we all know that deep down inside! How about really seperating your install apart with some trick motorization gear, For $300 plus shipping (heavy so I estimate in the 48 around $50 shipping) you get the following: 2 36" 300lb capacity drawer slides brand new 1 36" 200lb capacity linear actuator brand new 2 22" 100lb capacity drawer slides brand new 1 12" 75lb capacity linear actuator new was used for a mock up of a larger plan Spent about $1k for everything, but it is just sitting around Here is some creative things you can do with it: motorize a big screen up/dn motorize an amp drawer hidden under a woofer enclosure motorize a woofer enclosure motorize a smaller amp/eq drawer motorize a seat out motorize a drawer out of another motorized drawer and yes, you can even do this for home use! possibilities are only limited by your imagination PayPal ONLY! and I will ship the 48 states, anything else conatct me [email protected]
