  1. Hello friends. I've been having a problem with my computer's Firefox browser for the last couple of days. The problem is, multiple Firefox processes running in the background. For which a lot of internet bandwidth is being wasted. This is why I am having so much trouble working on my computer. Guys, is there anyone who can figure out a way to solve this problem for me? Any help will be appreciated.
  2. I have 2 PSI Platform 2 12's at 1800 watts rms 1 ohm powered by DS18 Hooligan 5000 watt rms amp to power them, I used to have Soundstream arachnid 8000 watt max 4000 watt rms until it crapped out. Pretty sure it lied about it's output but could have been user error. They are run in a series-parallel circuit. The box is 4 cubic feet tuned to 40hz. The left sub's cutout is a little small so there is a little bit of air leak coming through there. the speaker wire is 8 gauge and the power wiring is all 0 gauge. I have a line converter as well. They've start to smell funny when I turn up the music and play a song for more than 30 seconds, at first I thought it was a power issue so I just installed a new 360 amp alternator from apex alts. the setup is running in a 2013 Mazda 6. I have 3 batteries at 650 cca plus the high output alt to power the setup but I am still having this smell. I'm not saying I couldn't have done something wrong, but I would like to know the source of the issue, any help would be great. The smell is like when you buy a new video game and open up the case. Nothing smells burnt just odd. My subs do not feel hot at all, just slightly warm, like they should. I have had this set-up for 3 years roughly, and just keep my gain turned down as I do not want to damage anything. Except for when I installed the new alt, I then re-adjusted my gain. Any help would be greatly appreciated, please let me know if I screwed up doing something. Thanks
  3. Anyone using an SMD Fuse Block with Sky High Car Audio 2/0 lugs?? I just bought 3 SMD fuse blocks (1 - dual, 2 quads Heavy Duty XL) and my SHCA 2/0 lugs DON'T FIT with my 500 amp SHCA ANL fuses longways. I had to add thick aluminum washers to the studs to raise the fuses up above the wire lugs because otherwise they will not fit. Yes I bought the XL versions. What is going on here??! Secondly, when I tighten the nuts (NOT acorn nuts) down onto the studs to secure the 2/0 lugs and fuses, the round clear glass on the BACKSIDE of the fuse block CRACKED (one completely shattered and fell apart/out) which otherwise prevents the bolt from spinning!! What is the maximum torque specs?? Again, I'm referring to the small portions of glass on the backside, not referring to the plexiglass cover!) Apparently not strong enough as they are. I'm highly disappointed because these are supposed to be the best fuse blocks on the (car audio) market. Based on this 3 time experience. VIDEO of showing this issue:
