  1. I know I can strap two compatible amps together for double the power, so two 2000w 1-ohm stable amps should be 4000w 2-ohm, right? So could I wire the D1 sub to a 2-ohm load to the strapped amps at the 2-ohm load, or should I just buy the D2 ver. and run the amps to a single voice coil, or like wire the D2 sub to a 2ohm load. I'm using two CT-2000.1d amps and a single SunDown zv6 12 D1. Should I buy new parts or could I hook them up? I don't wanna blow this expensive gear, I can return them if I've made any mistakes in my calculations so.
  2. So I got an saz-1200 and would really like to match subs and amps. What you you guys personally recommend? I have plenty of air space. I like hard hitting lows. Most of what I play is below 45hz so I'm not really picky about being loud up higher above that. I really like the lower 30s and upper 20s. So what are some sundown recommendations on that kind of power? And it can either be 1 12, 2 12s, or 1 15. So what dother you think? Single sa 15? X 15? Sa 12s? X 12? Very open to suggestions. I hope this doesn't count as a vs thread. Thanks! Greg
  3. Hey whats up everyone? I am looking at upgrading my 2 12" Q Power Deluxe's to 4 15 Deluxe's. I got 2 12" Q Power Deluxe series subs and I am pushing 2500rms to them, While they are surprisingly taking the power like champs I am looking to upgrade to 4 15" Q Power Deluxe's. Only problem is the Deluxe's only come in D4 subs. I wouldn't be able to run 4 D4's at 1 ohm. I need 4 D2's. So as much as I want to stay with Q Power look like I am going to have change brands so I can get 4 D2's to run at 1ohm. So I wanted to stay with Q Power because I want a system that the everyday person can afford but still compete and carry home a trophy with. I will be competing in the SPL lanes also so this is really an SPL build for my Tahoe. I will be running aero ports on the box instead of the traditional wooden slot port. I want something different and hopefully a little better performing. I will post pics of some boxes I came up with in torres. I will post the Aero Port box and the Slot Port box below. I will adding another Soundstream rub2500.1D to the one I got so I can strap them and run 5k. Also will be adding 2 more batts just so the electrical wont struggle. I will build the box and add the subs before I up my power and electrical. First off does anyone have any D2 15" subs that are around $100-$115? I am looking for something that can handle 1250w rms daily for when I run 5K to them. The 2 12" Q Power's I got now are rated at 700rms but 1500 peak and are taking the 2500w really well. All the subs I have been pricing are $200+. Looking to stay under 500 for all 4 15's. For SPL wouldn't 4 15's post higher scores than 2 18's? if not please correct me so I wont be wasting money on a system that wont post anything near 145 in the lanes. To reach a 145 if I really HAVE to save more and spend more on subs then just let me know. The goal is a 145 @ 35-40hz. Tuning: I am thinking around 30-32hz and have the box around 15.5ft*3. Aero Port: Slot Port: Thanks for any opinions or any help -James
  4. Im new to D.7 D1 D1.4 etc im looking for a final impedance of .7 to 1.3 my question is what would be the final impedance on a single D.7 and 2 D.7s also same question with a single D1 and 2 D2s and same with the D1.4s
  5. Anyone know if this type of port division would cause any issues? 3 inches wide, 26 inches long total. 2 12" DC LVL 4's SUBS FACING UP!
  6. heeeeeelllllooo! I just bought two vvx-12's with a custom box tuned to 32hz. I am now looking for an amp to power these and am stuck due to electrical.. I'm between an audioque1200 and an sk-1500, but am edging away from the sk-1500 due to being scared and not having enough electrical. I have a 2005 Acura RL with a 130amp alt and stock battery. IF I got the sk-1500, would all I need to do is put an extra battery in the back? Or am I going to have to upgrade stock AND extra battery in the back. Will the extra battery in the back @ around 40amp hours(630 cranking amps)(http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_16770_Stinger-SPV44.html) @ ~1320watts be perfect? Or will I need more? Thank you!
  8. hello everyone!! Looking to build a box in my trunk . walled off . I don't have the tools or a shop. So my question for everyone one out there is: Does anyone know of a GOOD shop in the Columbus ,Ohio area. perferable with experience of walling a trunk. I have to get the pressure off my trunk lid. It is ripping at the hinge mounts. my car hates me...lol
  9. We are proud to announce our entry into the subwoofer market. We are on pre-order right now, they will be shipping by Oct 15th. The AF (Alta Fedeltà) series of woofers have been optimized for very small sealed or medium sized ported enclosures. They were designed for the highest sound quality in the smallest space. All of the drivers in this series feature: • Aluminum cones, aluminum dust caps, and aluminum voice coil formers for maximum heat transfer from the voice coil to the cone. This helps keep the voice coil cool during high output. • Rubber surround for long life • Tinsel leads woven through spider to minimize unwanted mechanical noise and increase durability • Single 4 ohm voice coil to minimize moving mass and lower distortion • Triple shorting rings to minimize distortion • Nickel plated binding posts • Each driver individually tested before it ships • Detailed Speaker Performance Report with T/S parameters FOR THAT SPECIFIC DRIVER ships with each unit. (An industry first) Sample Performance Report All the info you could want here: http://damoreenginee...subwoofers.html SPY PIC!
  10. Well I just want to take the time and thank you guys down at DC for everything they did for me. A few months ago you guys helped me pick out what subs would work best for my truck ended up getting the new level 4s M2's was really impressed in how quick they got to my house and how great they looked. Also thank you for this past weekend on helping me on a Saturday with wiring my subs. you guys have a great customer service and have a great audited toward helping out people and making sure they are satisfied with what they get. My 3.5k came in today and all i can say that thing looks flawless, absolutely beautiful. I thank everyone down at DC for all the help they have given me and the great items i now have for my truck. I hope to someday be a part of the team and see you guys at some shows and compete with you for Team DC. I am proud to own some great products and i cant wait to hear them this weekend. This week is going to be a long week of anticipation on waiting to hear the subs. but i thought i would do it right and get another battery and get it DD-1 so everything is perfect. Thank you guys again i would recommend you guys to anyone for anything. Keep up the great work and I will see you guys around hopefully. DC FTW!
  11. NEW UPDATE 2-13-12!!!!! IF THE THREAD RUNS UNUSED FOR OVER 6 MONTHS IT WILL BE LOCKED. ANY INQUIRIES CAN BE HANDLED BY P.M. TO THE O.P. NEW UPDATE!!! 2-24-09 YOU MUST HAVE 150 POST TO POST AN ITEM FOR SALE (that also means you CANNOT sell items through your sig or in the chat room below 150 posts) I only have a one, the rest is common sense. If your not looking to buy a product that someone has for-sale, Do Not Post in that thread, no matter how much you think someone wants to much money or what not. if you know they are scamming then that's a different story, otherwise Shut up, I'm tired of seeing peeps trying to tell people what is or isn't a good price on something they DON'T OWN. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I hate to do this but people aren't understanding common sense. 1. Do NOT post dump. - Post dump is an unnecessary post - All items listed for sale must be listed with a asking price for each item - If you hate the price don't complain about, its up to the OP(original poster) to set his price, other wise PM him/her - If you are not interested in purchasing or are interested but do not have the money to purchase the item at the time you see the thread on that item that is for sale, do NOT post - Posts may be deleted without warning - Report to mod button is there for the sake of reporting the thread, USE IT - Repeat offenders will have a short ban from the forum 2. Do not question the moderators - No need to explain this rule, basically don't argue with them 3. Pictures with your name and date on a piece of paper shown with every item being listed is a MUST - if you have time to post you have time to take pics. if not we aren't interested in your thread here. - We have a moderation staff, we don't need 40 members posting that they need pics/150 post minimum or it will be deleted, it just clutters up threads and we have to delete all the random chatter to keep the threads clean. Anyone caught playing Rent-A-Mod will be sent on a 24 hour vacation. The rules are for everyone's benefit, just read them and abide by them its not hard. 4. References will help your sale 5. Do not bump your thread more than once a day - There is a difference between bumping and updating - A bump is a term used to move your thread to the top of the list - Do not BUMP others threads 8. Do not ask us to delete your for sale thread, they will be here for archive, we however can lock the thread. 7. Respect each other 8. NO FEELERS 9. IF you do no have 150 posts you CANNOT sell period. Nothing in sig either. 10. No links to off site sales other than Hot Deals. If you want to sell it here, make sure the post fits all rules for the appropriate section it is listed in. 11. NO RAFFLES WHAT SO EVER 12. DONT ADVERTISE YOUR ITEMS FOR SALE IN A WANT TO BUY THREAD IF YOU DONT MEET THE CRITERIA The rules are for everyone's benefit, just read them and abide by them its not hard. If you are a Vendor here with your own Section these new rules do not apply to you if your in Roscoe's thread below this of Super sellers these new rules do not apply as well.
  12. can anyone tell me anything about fultron depth charge subs got a pair of 12s for free no nothing about them tho
  13. I have a problem finding a re-cone kit for my Goldwood Audio sub. It's a 12" dual 4 ohm sub with a massive motor structure. I don't remember what model it is because I purchased it 8 years ago new and it had no stickers on it to identify it. I've been beating the hell out of it for the entire time that I've owned it and was expecting failure some day; and it let go spectacularly! the smell and sound was TOTALLY worth slamming on brakes and pulling to the shoulder in traffic! I'd like to find a re-cone that also has the leads woven into the upper spider and all of the other things that made this sub so nice to listen to for all of these years. It has 6; 1/2 - 3/4" phillips head bolts that hold the basket on the motor assembly. This is an extremely well built sub that sounded fantastic and I'm not willing to part with it. I'd like to go from dual 4 ohm to dual 2 ohm coils. HEEEEELP!
  14. With 2 P3's running at 600 watts rms in a ported box, will this drown out the mids and highs and make the system sound shitty with too much bass? Or will it sound clean with all that bass with the mids and highs still quality?
  15. i'm new to the spl worl and loving it. i have 4- power acoustik mofo 152s on a hifonics bre2500. i keep reading about people blowing subs by clipping them. what is clipping and what causes it?
  16. Any suggestions for a 12" sub that handles double bass, just as well as rap? I need sound quality.
  17. now try reading the rules.
  18. ok so here is my deal i got 2 audiopipe txxbd 12's brand new had them for 2 days there rms is 750/1500 each i have a audio oipe ap1500d speakers wired at 1ohm i have all the bass boost things like that turned all the way down and the gain turned half up to break them in they where jsut palying along and they cut out... i didn't smell coil or any burned up wires. i took each speak by its self and hooked it up to the amp alone and both don't work the amp is on and everything but the subs dont turn on did both subs short at the same time or is the amp short? i don't know what to do or how to tell
  19. Hey guys I'm finally doing videos and updates of all the things I've been doing to my car over the last few years. I stumbled into the world of car audio a little over a year ago so im still learning. Its nice to have a community of intelligent people that I can bounce some ideas off. Let me know what you think!

  22. Hey everyone, currently in the market for some new subs for daily use. Looking at either one level 5 15 on a 3.5k, or 2 xl elite 12’s on a 2k each. what would be better in your opinion, and why? thank you
  23. 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.
  24. With 4 evl 8’’, to 1ohm configurations, how big an amp should i get to safely get the most of the 4 subs??
  25. I am currently using only a SoundQubed 120.4 amplifier, with a set of components on the front channels, and a set of subs bridged on the rear channels. If I set both front and rear channels with the DD1 4 channel instructions, I get significantly less output through the subs. If I set the rear channel (bridged) with the DD1 sub amp instructions, the subwoofer output increases. My question is, is it OK to set the bridged rear channels of a 4 channel with the sub tracks, if that's what I'm using the rear channels for, or should I stick to the 4 channel settings regardless? I haven't seen anyone ask about this yet.
