  1. Hi there, anyone knows anything about this amp? I saw that's it's rates 2.9kw @ 1ohm, that's max or rms ? I cannot find any information about it. Nothing on the amp performance, and on the forum is one topic from 2007. Guts in the attachment Thanks a lot for any information.
  2. Hopefully someone can help me out here, I would appreciate it very much!! To start off I just recently purchased a Epicenter and I would like to know how to setup with with my amp. What I mean is how to correctly set up my gains and setting in the Epicenter. My setup is nothing big at all. I have an Almani HA 600.4 (300 watts RMS) which was given to me and I have it in bridged mode and a 12 inch JBL GX 1200 watt sub with 250 Watts RMS. I want to know how to correctly set it all up so in the end im not clipping, distorting or killing my sub. Since I got it for a week now ive been slowly able to get it to where I want it, but I want to perfect it. Current setting on the Epicenter is the "Wide" setting is 1/4 way up and the "Sweep" setting is 3/4 up. Bass output is stock at 5 Volts on the inside untouched. Also does anyone know the input voltage that my amp is capable of taking in, I talked to audio control and they said to check on that if not i will have to adjust the bass output on the epicenter? Appreciate it if someone would help out im fairly new to using a Epicenter.
  3. ok so I have a single 12" sundown x 12 d4 soon to be getting another in the mean time im looking to upgrade form an alpine mrx-m100 (1000 @ ohms [email protected] 1) its a weird amp wanting 2500-3000 rms at 1 ohm or a 2 chl that does 1250-1500 @ 2 ohm ect open to all offers on amps but I do not have 700 bucks to buy one lol you can pm me or reply on this thread ill get back asap thank you for any and all inquiries in advanced. p.s. new to buying on this forum so I will be noobin it up when it comes to buying someone with experience on how its done would be very much appreciated also
  4. Alright guys, I am all done hearing about "clamping". The numbers generated from that are so far off and don't account for many factors. I just did a quick little dyno run vs the clamps tonight to show how drastic the error is. If you want to know more detail about why clamping doesn't work, there is another video on the D'Amore Engineering youtube channel that describes the problems in detail. Clamps vs Amp Dyno vid here: Detailed explanation of why clamping is wrong vid here:
  5. i have the materials for the big three and that should be done sometime this week but was looking into second batteries and don't want to go too overkill on power and spend too much. will the big three and the hc600 battery keep my voltage safe and the amp from clipping or should i get the hc800? i have this all in an 01 monte ls with the 3.4 lt v6 with stock alt. the amp is pushing a nightshade v1 15 with psi recone
  6. So this is my problem guys, i have 8 mid range speakers 8" 4ohm 1000 watts/ 500rms each speaker in my 2007 nissan altima, i am looking for the best amplifier to push these mids to their capacity. now i know i will need more than one amp to these seeing that there arent mid range amps that push this much watts per channel. So im throwing this out the so i can get some feed back on which amp should i get to push these mid range of 4000 watts rms power
  7. I have 2 12" Alpine Type R subs, they are dual 4 ohm subs rated at 1000 RMS each and right now have them on a cheap amp and they need more power. What kind of amp should I get that fits them the best? I see on most amps they say they are like 3k but they end up putting out about half that when they are tested, I need an amp that will give me true power. They will be put into a sub box I am building now that will be tuned to 33 hz. Let me know what would fit them the best.
  8. i just got a sundown sae 1200d amp and was wondering what all i should do to my electrical to keep it from clipping or burning out. i just got everything for the big 3 today and i am installing that stuff tomorrow but didn't know if i'd need an extra battery on top of it?
  9. I'm looking to buy an amp in the true 1200-1500 watt range at 1 ohm. It can vary from this range a little bit, just post anything you've got. For my budget it can go up to $300. I'm interested in cheaper stuff as well, though, such as the Soundqubed 1200 and other amps.
  10. so i have a jl 500/1 amp. i checked all my connections and everything was ok. my green power light comes on, no problem there. my problem is that there is no output to my sub at all. any reasons why it is doing this or solutions to fix it?
  11. Planing and sq system for my daily driver ,anyone have any input on the fi audio Q sub ?? or another great sq sub with around the same rms ???? need help ASAP... Please
  12. If you would like to learn more about electricity, electrical networks, what RMS is, what clipping is, and much more to come; check out the D'Amore Engineering University FREE EDUCATION video series. We launched it last month, are averaging 1 video per week. Most of the time a homework problem is assigned at the end and answered in the next video. We are starting off slow and basic and will work up through how and amplifier works and more. Join us! -Tony http://damoreengineering.com/freeeducation.html
  13. ok so ive been trying to get my amp tuned with a dd-1 but I cant find a single soul that has one in my area so im going to go tune with a multimeter but I know that it does above rated so I need some clamp test results or ad-1 results or something that tells me what this will do anyone with info please help I need to be able to tune my amp
  14. I dont mean to run down the same street looking for whats already been found but i must ask. Si my build is for an 18. The plan was to get a re sx18 d2 wired down to 1. as of now i just got in a hifonics 1800 Which im not sure how good it does rated. The reason i was going to do RE audion for the fact it as so many reviews and vids. Seems like its well iked.then i get on top of my research and alot of peple are saying the sub has changed over the years and is not putting out like it use to. So my price range is about 300 ogive or take a few. Ie recently learned about AA18 , and Hcd3. But from my understanding the Sx is rated at 1k rms. so if i feed it 1800 woulnd the sub hit harder vs. a sub rated more? When money is a concern wouldnt a lower rated sub be easier to move and product a better sound for my needs? thanks for all the help. And im not looking to get anything else besides an 18.
  15. my buddy has an 02 eclipse with the infinity sound system. we tried hooking up subs and i had every wire ran correctly but amp won't turn on. i suspect i have to bypass the infinity amp but was wondering how. all advice will help! thanks!
