2015 Cadillac Escalade Sound System Install - 6 12's all 1" Acrylic box, mids/highs started update page 25


Recommended Posts

I made a few changes to my new amp rack. Had to make room for the 5th battery (on the way) plus a few other mods. Multiple layers of 1/2” and 1/8” acrylic (Clear, mirror, white and black) were used. The pieces are still loose, i will probably bond them together tomorrow. I have a lot more to do of course before it will take shape, but this is where it’s at right now. I can’t wait to see how it looks in the Caddy! These D'Amore Engineering amps are gonna look nutty when those displays light up!

I'm sure this build is going to totally amazing, because its SMD ! Wouldn't expect anything less :)

 

But I'm thrown off by a few things, and trying figure it out.

 

1) Your only going to be giving your 15"s, 1500 wts RMS each ? Aren't you giving the subs in your Tahoe like 5-6 Kwts ?

 

2) I know those amps are TOP quality, and probably make super clean, efficient power, but it seems odd to me that that they make the 2 x 1500 RMS amplifier (which your using on your subs) and a 4 x 1500 wts RMS that your using for mids / highs, and they have the same footprint ? 

 

3) So your going to be making 6 Kwts (for all four ch) total for your four 15"s.... and 12 Kwts (for all eight ch) total for your mids/highs ?

 

Am I missing something here ?

after playing with several options and not liking them too much, i decided to switch up. The new plan is (6) 12’s! B2 Audio Rampage! 4 of them arrived today. 2 more on the way. Here are some pics.

i'm not sure what the Tahoe has to do with this. Sorry man two totally different vehicles, totally different system's. 

 

Anyway, as far as the mids/highs and the power i have on tap, it is more about the channels than the power.  But i will definitely have an endless amount of headroom.  The subs will be slightly underpowered as far as total rated power handling but they will still get stupid busy.

That's bad ass! No particular reason behind it, and not that it matters at all, but I'm a 12" guy. This build is going to be sick! 

Just out of curiosity, what impedance load will you be sending the amps? (I don't know the proper term for what I'm trying to ask, sorry lol) Will you strap them? Or just run 3 subs with the 2 channels bridged? Just curious how you'll be running those bad ass amps.

planning on .67 ohms for each set of 3.
