  1. Hey what's up. Working on a SPL build for my 09 Chevy Tahoe and could use your guy's opinion and recommendations on the items for the build will appreciate it much!! I have Possible Ipad install (soundman) with Sony XAV-9500 es 2 DC Audio Lvl 6 18's Either DC Audio 10k or a Psi 10k ? 370 Mechman alt -dual possibly*? 1/0 ga D4S and SHCA ofc* SMD 4 and 8 ANL fuse holder's Big 3 or 4 ?* Lithium/battery delete ah/brands*? Starting from scratch so let's get it ! Lol
  2. Ok so I've been doing research and honestly I'm kinda stumped, I know I wanna go with lithium titanate but I would like to avoid building my own bank so I've been looking at cased cells https://www.google.com/amp/s/store.soundsolutionsaudio.com/amp/ces-custom-electric-service-40ah-lto-battery-cased-lithium-10-spot-terminals-actively-balanced/ https://caraudiobargain.com/xs-power-ioxus-ix-3160-60ah-lithium-lto-battery-10-000-rms-handling/ But would I be able to hook my current battery terminals up to it without a battery delete since my battery is already in the trunk or do I still need to do a delete and run everything off that? I have a BMW e46 sedan with an h8(group 49) duralast agm in the trunk as my "under the hood" battery. Still new to car audio and this is my second build (first was a single 12 on 800 watts) so I've got a lot to learn, any feedback is appreciated. Thanks
  3. Hi there, I wanted to get opinions on whether I should run the powerus 13.5k or 8k. I have 80ah lifepo4 and mechman 400a. I realize 80ah isn't the greatest to run the 13k but I'll be wired up to 1.3 ohms on my subs subs I'm not sure if the 8k will be putting out enough power after rise. Thanks!
  4. I have a couple of questions about a new build I'm putting together. I'm switching to my system to all lithium and will be eliminating my agm. I see everyone say that if you put lithium and agm together it will blow your alternator. Is this true? Also is it safe to start your car with lithium batteries? And is it recommended to purchase a bms for these deafbonce lithiums I got? https://alphardaudio.us/products/lithium-battery-lt-lfp-300p My system will be at around 9k watts powering 2 custom made 18 inch pierce audio 4k 12 magnet neo subs. My alternator is a 240 amp mechman, will 240 be enough to charge up my system I've heard that lithium is a lot of strain on alternators. If I'm driving my car just about every other day will I have to hook my batteries up to a lithium charger every other night or will they be fine to start my car every day and just wait a couple min for the alt to charge them? Sorry for all the questions but thank you for the help!!
  5. So my buddy is into bass and I help with his system, he basically knows what's in it and how to play it safely, not really big into doing the work. That's where I come in. Currently his setup is SFB 200.4 Running Punch speakers in each door @ 4 0hms 88w x 4 SFB 5000 Running 4 American Bass XD 15s @ 1 Ohm CES 370 Large Case 2 Turbostart 80ah AGMs WIth this setup, it holds mid-low 12s all day easily. Well, he's got the bug and wants more. I'm thinking Running triple alternators, the current CES 370 and a matching one for the bass side and then putting his stock alternator back on to run his doors. So basically, Stock alternator with the 2 80ah of AGMs running the SFB 200.4 and the truck. While the 2 370s are on a separate system running to a lithium bank in the back. We plan on running 2 SFB 13ks right now on 4 15s. I saw the CES 80ah banks are rated for 10kw clamped with 200 amps of available charging. Would 2 of these be sufficient to feed the 2 SFB 13ks? I feel like 1 13k may clamp around 9kw-10kw after impedance rise. So I think it would be good. Don't mind going overkill though. This is a daily driver by the way, it doesn't compete, it's for his own enjoyment and when we go to truck meets people may ask for a demo.
