Total user error I bought some used zv4s 18 months ago and I coulda sworn they were d2s. But my dmm was broke that day and they were d1s. Long story short amp been repaired before due to vibration damage and not knowingly I ran it at .25 for a year before a few caps on the inside exploded. The bad news is it just went out of warranty and I won't repair it a third time but just keeping it real this is one of my top favorite amps I ever owned.

Hmm. Was amp mounted to box? If so how long did you have it mounted like that? I'm asking because I'm worried this will happen to my DC5K... Although, I did have CJ18 build the box with double layers in the back so that I could mount my amp but is that enough to not break the amp due to vibration?

My amp rack/center console ( all mdf ) has the port and subs firing directly at . No rubber bushings or anything. Its the first time this has ever happened to me. I've been told use some small rubber grommets .

Typically rubber grommets will not stop anything from happening, unless your using an isolate type mount (meaning the bolt that connects to the wood amp rack is not the same bolt being connected to the amp). Otherwise the vibrations will travel through the fastener itself. The rubber needs to be very very very soft as well or else it wont absorb any vibration, and even then if its a violent system it still may not do anything.

I actually just switched to zv5s and taramp 8ks and it seems just as loud if not louder
