    Re: How to stop breaking windshields.

    I'd recommend a custom lexan windshield or contact some places that build armored vehicles they might could lead you in the right direction for an unbreakable windshield...

    Re: How to stop breaking windshields.

    You mini van just must be built weak from the factory. My Tahoe windshield is fine 155db+ and my buddy Tahoe is fine 155db plus daily... our passenger door takes most of the beating then we roll up the window....

    I would keep adding wood to the roof. Make sure U can put the headliner on but make it as thick as possible

    I never blew my Wrangler JK or CRX at 154s daily ..best in my JK was 156.1 ..so most likely something with the curved roofline of his van

    Re: How to stop breaking windshields.

    the flatter and smaller the windshield the better it will do, usually vans have big curved windshields and they break easy.

    i saw a van with i think 1/4" lexan and he said he was down over 1db just so he didnt have to replace the windshield every time he turned it up.
    and god forbid someone opened the passenger door during a loud demo..... pop gone

    Re: How to stop breaking windshields.

    Is there anyway to reinforce the curve? I suppose you could have a removable stripper pole which would be almost as nice as having a removable stripper.



    Gain on an amplifier to meant to be matched to the output voltage of your headunit. Think 3 volt, 4 volt, 5 volt pre out specs you see on headunit specs. This is how gain works for a given pre out(5 volt) theoretically. However most head units clip(start to distort) at around 80% of your volume so your 5 volt pre out wont give 5 volts Cleanly. You will most likely get 4 volts out at something like 33/40 on your volume knob and would thus set your gain to 4 volts. (these things can be measured with a GOOD Multimeter. )
    80% of your total volume is (max volume) X 0.8.
    Example is 40(is your max volume so, 40 X .8=32
