  1. hello everyone and thank you for your time... i recently installed a new system in my car SETUP : DC AUDIO LEVEL 3(connected on 1 ohm) , Skar skv2 1500D Monoblock , MOREL VIRTUS 602 as for components, Audison SR4 as for 4 channel amp, under the hood is a deep cycle AGM battery, and a 1.5farad capacitor in the trunk jvc kw-v21bt headunit WIRING : 0AWG from the hood battery to the monoblock and the ground is 0AWG from the amp to the chassis (about 20cm) , 4AWG (+ AND GROUND) from the hood battery to the 4 channel amp, and ofc high end cables and RCA from the headunit to the amps... big 3 : NO Problem : when i play at low volume everything works perfectly, as soon as i raise the volume up to half (mono gain is 1\10) the music dies. the amps doesn't go into protection and the voltage doesn't drop! , when i close the gain i can go to full volume with no problems, Notice : i currently using a stock grounding from the battery + a 16AWG to the chassis ( i think its weak), sometimes when the bass kicks really hard without the music dies, i hear a bit of distortion coming out from the tweeters What could be the issue? Thank you all for your time <3
  2. I'm getting rid of my SPL setup I have currently ( one 12" DC lvl4 sub, ported box)and I'm throwing in a "behind the seat box" sealed enclosure... But here's my question as to what would sound better?? Either two 10" skar VD-10's or three? The box will be made the same dimensions for each set up so having two 10's I'm closer to what the subs call for in a sealed enclosure. Total inside box volume will be 1.5cubes the vd-10's call for .65 cubes per sub totaling 1.3cubes if I do two and the enclosure would technically be two small for 3 sealed vd-10's but they would fit. I can power both set ups efficiently just curious as to what would sound better, either 3 subs requiring 1500rms in a sealed box that's too small or two tens in a correct sized enclosure requiring 1000rms?
  3. Hey everyone! Here is our latest amplifier dyno video! We are making our way through the SKv2 line. Next up is the SKv2-200.4D and then on to our bigger mono amps! Enjoy! - Devin
  4. We were finally able to make a demo video of the Skar Audio EVL-65 6.5" subwoofer! Enjoy and share! CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO ABOUT THE EVL-65
  5. Just a short video of my newest ported box, 4cuft tuned at 33hz 58sq in of port area.
  6. i recently got a MA-8, i need help with box ideas. any input ? oh, going in a jeep liberty so i have plenty of space for any box.
  7. So after getting to play with the Skar Audio VVX subs - http://www.stevemead...-audio-vvx-12s/ we were anxious to try the amps of the same brand.... and here they are, in Russia, posing for a quick photoshoot along with the awesome SMD DD-1 and CC-1 that we got from Steve We already had the VVX12's out of the Audi (and sold actually as quite a few people were very impressed by their abilities) and the Sundown z12v2's with d1 coils in.... so this meant we could take two SK1500.1's and and run them bridged @ 1ohm (0.5 nominal per amp) Gains were set using the SMD DD-1, to ensure that there is no clipping. here's a good vid playing Gucci, moving quite a bit of air and being slightly loud with 148+ @30hz on the meter (I know it's hard to see in the vid) and here's the clamp of the power figures @ 148.4 we got 2930 watts of clean power from two amps with a rise to 2.5ohms and a drop to 11.6v.....this is also after about an hour of testing and playing music on drained batteries...... which is damn good, especially at this low a frequency Overall, the amps are great, very well built, sound extremely plesant and are stable below 1ohm Good job Skar Audio!
  8. Alright so lets go ahead and get right to the point, i have a 01 Toyota Camry and it has a 90 amp alternator and a stock battery, well brand new but just a regular o'reilys battery. and i did the big 3. Im planning to stick with stock alt and stock battery, so i'm stuck trying to decide what amp to go with, i have 2 skar audio ddx-12's and currently have the good old trusty (audio bahn fire amp) on them right now. I have narrowed my choices down to 3 amps, ill order in them in favoritism. 1. skar audio rp1500.1d 2. soundqubed s1-1250 3. skar audio rp1200.1d. what amp would work best with the power i have currently, and non rev matching either, just good ole idle power. All comments appreciative lol.
  9. I've heard the latter can handle the impedance but the former just simply can't. I know they both need big power so for the sake of conversation let us assume they do. Which will hold out longer or do the job at about half gain. My future build: (2) Skar ZVX 18's D2 wired in parallel @ 0.5 ohms Electrical: 370 amp Iraggi H/O Alt, Yellow Top front, XS Power D7500 back. (Any better ideas on the back battery support?) and Knu Koncepts 0ga. Unfortunately, due to Christmas aha, I only have the Yellow Top and one ZVX. Hopefully have everything by Feb if not sooner. Would love some ideas! This is all in a 2001 Impala.
  10. I was always told not to mount the amps on the box, but really dont have much room to work with. Where would you mount them?
  11. Hey everyone, It has been ages since we built the Skar Audio Escalade so we are in well need of a new show/company vehicle so we decided to do it big, and by big we mean doing a 2017 Maserati Ghibli. The plan is to have a lot of power, a lot of bass, and a lot of mids/highs all in a very very clean and modern build that sounds amazing! So far this is the list of what we will be running! (Products may change or be added throughout the build) Bass: (2) Skar Audio ZVX-12v2's (2) Skar Audio SKv2-2500.1D's (strapped) Mids/Highs: (4) Sets of Skar Audio SPX-525C's (2) Skar Audio SKv2-100.4AB's Power: We plan on running XS Power batteries but have not decided on the exact models! We are definitely leaning towards lithium but are still looking at our options! Wiring: Stinger 1/0 power/ground Stinger 9000 series RCA's Stinger Speaker Wire Pac AP4-CH1 Here are some shots of the 2017 Maserati Ghibli! Let the door panel build begin! We plan on putting a pair of SPX-525C component speakers in each door making it (4) sets total in the vehicle! LET THE CUTTING BEGIN!!! ? Thats a wrap for today! Check back for updates on Monday! - Devin
