    The black ice is twice as heavy as the vfl.. If not more. I got offered 300 for the black ice lastnite so i sold it. Neighbor kid did not want to wait over the weekend to have one shipped so he made an offer I could not refuse!!! Hahaha
    You could get by with using a 200amp fuse.. I plan on getting a smaller 2 channel and prolly another 1800 to hang onto..

    Thanks for the gut shots, but I would have tested it before breaking the warranty seal if there was one
    Got the fuse yesterday. All Hooked up last night in the pitch black. It seems something isn't right. Doesn't quite hit like I feel it should.

    And no warranty seal I triple checked lol so not a problem man

    Its wired to 1 at the amp. I think its all because I switched my set up all around. I have my sub and port aiming in the cabin and I got it shoved all the way forward in the backseat opening so its like a walled trunk.

    This is an older thread, but for what it's worth, I gave in and emailed them to ask about the THD specs. I got a response today saying that they test at .061%. For what it's worth....

    Re: anyone with a Precision Power BK1800.1D ??

    I got one of these the other day. $183 down the toilet. The input sensitivity is backwards, meaning I set the potentiometer at about where 4v would be (0.2-6v range) to match my Alpine CDE-147BT and got little to no output. The only appreciable THUMP came when I'd plug in / unplug the remote gain control. Then I started messing around with the HU adjustments. Finally I stumbled across the phase reversing and it made the oomph a little more noticeable yet. I have 2 shallow Alpine subs I planned on putting in the box for this amp to drive, but currently theres two Kicker 10" CVT's that I planned on watching go 'POP' from this amp driving too hard. Nope. These 400RMS subs (wired in parallel for 2 ohm load) are eating the claimed 1100RMS this paperweight is throwing at them all day long. Not even that nice hot plastic smell of the voice coil getting hot. Nada. No way this amp is anywhere near rated power.

    What is this 'subsonic xover' for right next to the low pass crossover for? It ranges from 10-50Hz. ?

    Any insight is appreciated

    Re: anyone with a Precision Power BK1800.1D ??

    Apparently a few changes have occurred in only a short amount of time with this series. They advertise acrylic covers but mine has a brushed aluminum painted black. I'd prefer metal over plastic anyway, not only for durability but heat dissipation as well. They cheapened things up with their terminal lugs tho, I've heard people that have allen screw fasteners on theirs but mine are just #2 phillips.

    For the sub sonic filter - I have it in a 1 ft^3 sealed box, so I guess theres really no difference where I put this setting (10-50Hz) as this enclosure is not really hitting any of those frequencies anyway. I guess this feature would only really apply in a bandpass enclosure where the lows are accentuated all the more?

    If I can say any good things at all about this paperweight, they would be that a) it delivers it's severely overrated power without heating up at all. Mind you it was 20 degrees here today, but it stays cool even when run hard for long periods. b) it doesnt clip at all while delivering this modest power. c) well, I'm out of good things to say already.

    If you want an inexpensive ~1000 watt mono sub amp stable at 1 ohm but whose 'features' or controls are lackluster and backwards at best, this passes muster.

    If you want an inexpensive amp that performs at its claimed power, has all it's teeth, and controls properly marked and functioning, lean more towards urban Audio Works or Jensen.

    Also no offense man but you sound like you have absolutely no idea what your doing with the settings if you dont even know what subsonic filters are and how the gain knob normally looks like YES its commonly called a gain knob not a pentiowhatever and THE GAIN KNOB IS NOT BACKWARDS! THATS HOW THE KNOB LOOKS LIKE ON 90% OF THE AMPS ON THE MARKET LOOK LIKE. ALSO just because your head unit pre out voltage is 4 doesnt mean you put the gain knob on 4v...

    Try this, for the Head unit, have the sub level max, bass boost 0, Low pass filter 80, Equalization flat, loudness off
    amp settings: subsonic filter off, Low pass filter close to 80, bass boost off, 0 degrees for phase setting if your subs are normally set or 180 degrees if your subs are inverted. MOST important thing is to learn how to properly set your gains with -6 db 50 hz test tone and a digital multi-meter. Do a quick google search on this method. DO THINGS RIGHT before making these Ignorant claims.

    Hell if you dont have a multi meter, you can even set it by ear. the gain knob is from left = minimum input voltage to right = maximum voltage. Turn your head unit volume to a level where you normally listen to with the mids and highs then slowy turn the knob from left to right till you get the amount of bass desired dont go past 70% of the way.
