  1. I have a 2018 f150, want to run skar 2000.1 and 150.4. I am wiring the mono to 2 ohms for 1400 watts. Also have a 20 ah battery going in the back. Is this enough or do I need electrical upgrades. I believe I have a 220a alternator
  2. Hello everyone , I`m new to this forum . I`ve been searching for an answer for some time now and can`t find it. So for example I have a 500 W rms subwoofer , and an 500w rms amp. The sub is rated for 1000W peak, how can i reach that , when I set my gains , I get only 500W then the signal clips. So i will never reach 1000W peak. Buying a bigger amp for let`s say 1000w rms , and setting the sub that way will mean it will play all the time at 1000W (peak ) and blow. Is peak only for SPL competitions where you do 2 3 sec of peak , or I should hear it when playing music in my car and a big bass drop comes in ? Please someone... I need some light on this.
  3. Would it be ok if i put a xs3100d in the trunk of my car? Would my alt be able to supply enough power for the 2 batteries? Also is is ok to have a smaller battery in front and a bigger one in the back? I would like to just put a 3400d in the trunk also instead of the 3100d if that would be enough power.
  4. I have recently gotten a sundown audio zv4 15" d2. I'm looking for an amp that will power it along with a secondary battery and then the best way to build a box to go into a Toyota Corolla trunk Whether it's sub port back, sub back port back etc What are some great amp brands that will rms 2000-3500 watts and sustain play It can be bang for buck or bigger price range Also would a aero port be better or regular port space wise and effiecency wise Thank you very much

  6. does anybody know what the primary and secondary column under wattage means on the xs wattage chart?
  7. looking to upgrade my battery under hood of a 2005 Elantra anything with at least 110AH and 1000+ CA preferably kinetik or xs power wanna stay under the $250 mark. Thanks
  8. I needed a wiring kit to power my amps that I am getting. I had been talking to Tony for a week or two and he was a huge help with getting it figured out what I needed based on the setup I'm going to run. I am very pleased with the quality of his products and will be purchasing from him again! I didn't really have a clue what I needed as far as wiring and didn't want to go with a regular kit for this reason. He guided me through the process via email, responding multiple times a day, and we got it figured out. I ordered the kit last Friday, and received it in the mail on Monday; he has great turnaround time and fast service. Nobody beats CE Auto Electric Supply as far as quality and knowledge goes! Here is the custom kit he put together for me: 20 feet 4 gauge power cable w/ ring terminal installed 2, 3 foot 8 gauge power leads w/ ring terminals installed 2, 4 foot 8 gauge ground leads w/ ring terminals installed 4 feet split wire loom 1 rockford maxi fuse holder 1 fused distribution block 80 amp, and 2 30 amp fuses 1 wire grommet On to the pics! Thanks a bunch! I HIGHLY recommend purchasing your electrical equipment from him! He already knows that I will be ordering again here shortly
  9. I'm replacing the power and ground in my car to 0 awg and plan on doing the big three upgrade too. I'm on the fence on choosing which brand to buy though. EXO from YouTube talks Audio Technix so I checked there site and I am guessing 20 feet will be enough to run from the battery to the back seat and maybe the big three too. But I can get 20 feet of 0 awg power wire from Audio Technix for $70 but I also did some looking around and found Cadence 0 gauge on AudioSavings which is $50 for 25 feet. I just wanna buy the right stuff. Help.
  10. I know i can use a power cell battery as a replacement battery for my vehicle but what I need to know is if it is safe like a dry cell battery to hook up or do i need to do specific different steps?
  11. Hey I have seen people fit d3400's under the hoods of 2002 chevy blazers and can someone give me a little advice. I already modded the battery tray so it sits better but the chords don't seem long enough. Can I use the battery while it is laying on its side or what make a bar to put the leads on. Any help would be appreciated thanks
  12. 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?
  13. Here's the run down so you'll can give me the best opinion. I drive a 2006 F-150 XLT 4.6 (V8) crew cab. Stock 125 amp alt. I plan on replacing my battery soon and I'm gonna try and convince the 'rents' to buy a better battery than the ones you buy from Ford. I'm tore between getting a XS Power and Kinetik battery. I have no idea what size I need. So your opinion on what size and brand would be wonderful. This isn't 'vs.' thread just a 'suggestion and opinion thread' since I know you'll hate the 'vs.' threads. I also am about to rebuild my system which be consisting of an Orion HCCA 12.2 with 2500 watts pushing towards. I added that just in case it might change your suggestion on size. Sorry for this being long just want the basic run down to get the best opinions. Thanx!
  14. I have one Rockford Fosgate 12" T0, model # T0D412, that I bought several months ago. I decided to just buy a pre fab ported box and there was always port noise at most lower frequencies. It has finally bugged me to the point where I'm building my own box. Any ideas or dimensions other than the one recommended in the manual? Since I only have one sub, I'd prefer a ported or 4th order bandpass type enclosure for the most bang for my buck.
  15. Ok, so some our Team Sundown guys got their NS-1's and clamped them on a resistor...this basically means there's no rise the resistor pack used for this test is 0.7 ohms Power supply 8 Stinger SP 2150's resting at 12.9v measured 80 volts 114 amps voltage drop 11,8v Power: 9120 watts guys said the amps is a beast in terms of low impedance stability, stayed cool the whole time the vid Effficiency 984 Amps of draw at 11,8 volts 78% efficiency at 0.7 ohms is damn good
  16. My good friend Aaron, aka Psyph Morrison, has never had a real system in any of his cars before. If you don't know who Psyph is (pronounced Sife), look him up on itunes, spotify or any other music app out there. Youtube as well. I have known him over 10 years and even worked with him on his last 3 albums as an executive producer. Ok, now that is out of the way, the reason he is getting a system is because well, the entire time i have known him and worked with him making music, especially music with a lot of bass, he has never had a system of his own. I don't know anyone who has had more car issues than him so we really never made it to the discussion of a system. Not too long ago he picked up a 2002 Honda Accord 4 door. I knew right then he has a reliable vehicle finally. So i offered to slap some beat in it for him. Watching him pull up, slapping his own music in a (not so great) stock sound system was really bothering me. How can my boy ride around like that if he know's ME? Long story cut short...his car is at my shop for a few weeks while i figure out what i am going to do. I have NO "plans". I just want to get him some good equipment, set it up proper and make him happy! ****NOTE, anything you see here is subject to change as i am totally freestyling this. Trying to just make it work. First i stopped by Arden Audio in Sacramento Ca. They always have what i need in stock over there and if they don't i can get it same or next day. I decided to pick Psyph up a new head unit first and foremost. I also got the dash kit and wiring harness to go with it. Grabbed some SkyHigh 16ga OFC speaker wire to run to the doors. The system will consist of (so far) Pioneer DEH X7800 BHS Head Unit Rockford Fosgate Punch 1000.1 (BASS) Rockford Fosgate Punch 300.2 (Highs) (2) Rockford Fosgate P3 12" subs (ported enclosure) (1) Set Rockford Fosgate T2 6.5" separates SMD Fuse / Grounding Blocks Mechman 1/0 OFC Power Wire Skyhigh 12 and 16ga Speaker Wire I already had a P300.2 but i got him a matching 1000.1 to go with it. These P3 12" subs are not brand new but might as well be. They are in brand new condition! They are my old ones. This box was already finished and just hanging around the shop. I KNOW it sounds good so it should do great in his trunk! The trunk floor is at an angle so i have to make a platform and flatten it out some so the box sits level.
  17. 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!
