    Prv Audio AD3500.1-2ohm

    First look



    It is small. Smaller than my CT sounds 125.2. But this is very dense and feels well made. Nothing flimsy.







    I hope tomorrow I get to install this. I hope to God that the fans aren't super loud!!

    More review to come

    Re: Prv Audio AD3500.1-2ohm

    Interesting!! Ive been wondering how these perform within the Mono/ Bass sector? Ive heard the stereo amps, but havent heard any of the mono amps or have been able to get any information on the performance of them. Im sure that you will not hear any fan noise if it performs properly..SubScribed!! Let us know how it does??

    If you're feeding a sub 3.5k I don't think you'll be able to hear the fans...

    It's just really hard for me to wrap my head around that these amps actually do rated. They are so small.

    Brazilians did two things right, produce big booty women and make tiny amps that do power

    We will see. Don't think my new alternator will go in today but this probably will.

    The manual, the part where it goes over power connections is confusing me. I know having a extra battery would benefit me but I didn't do it yet because I wanted the mechman installed first. I'm going to just do 0 gauge to a 4gauge reducer.

    What do you think of this?

    I cant read/blow that up The big 3 and two good batts with 0 ga supply would be fine till you get that alt in, but go easy on the gain..stay above 12v on a low note..

    Put the alt in before the amp. Otherwise your going to be making a thread saying how my amp blew up.

    Re: Prv Audio AD3500.1-2ohm

    Be sure to get a 0,2,ga ANL fuse holder at the main batt..Id run a 200 be fine/shouldnt hurt anything on the 0 ga run to the rear..deff need a Fused Distro Block from rear batt/batts Poss?+ post from 0,2.- 0-4 ga..again, ANL fuses are my preference..Fuse for the amp there.Stinger make great Blocks and have never failed me over the years and Lord knows how many installs over the years.A solid Non Fused 0,2ga-0,4ga will be just fine as well,makes grounding so much easier

    Its a 2011 Accord. 130amp stock. Big 3, AGM upfront 0 guage to the trunk. Distro for 2 two channel amps and a Clarion dpx15001. I don't have any issues with voltage right now. Stays in the mid 13s on big notes. I don't listen to decaf or anything bass crazy. Rap and mostly metal/rock. And Stern!!!

    I got the mechman because I have put 150k on my car in three years and had a similar setup the whole time so its a preemptive upgrade.

    I was going to hook it up today to make sure it works for one, and see how the fans are. Then install the alt and a battery in the back(now) 😀 Need to get a box built for my Sundown z12v3, or that OG XXX that's in the classifieds.

    I tore out my Air box in the CRV and put a short Air Intake filter on the Throttle Body and had room to place a bracket/holder for a full sized Batt under the hood.and gave me room to do the ELD Bypass easily, Tire well held other batt and majority of the wiring.Drilled a hole in tire well and found a spot for the )ga Ground wire on the Axle

    If you find yourself loosing out put it will be that ELD bringing you back down to 12v and kick back up once driving or running that RPM back up..It tappers from time to time to save fuel/a Fuel Economy feature that majority Hondas have and can get really annoying to say the least..LOL.Drove me Nuts till I found that Keep_hope_alive found a way to by-pass it to maintain voltage. I took the risk, and ran all the power I needed without doing a beef up on my roofing.Close to Creasing Im sure, but Ill never really know since its gone now..LOL..That joker Fired up every single day and drove me anywhere I desired

    I have read that post and all the comments. It seems doable. It does scare me a little. I run my headlights to keep the voltage up. Also the rear defroster works too.

    Thanks for the advice. I knew when I bought something in this power range things would have to change. But that's cool, the car almost paid off so its going to be my project car anyways soon

    You will never hear that fan unless you have your rear seat/seats down and volume all way down at idle..I could hear my 8" scroll fan running at that point in the CRV keeping the amp cooled down in the rear.Id at lest test it out?? What better to spend a Sat with new goods..Its like Christmas..Its raining here, so Im taking a break till it passes, and start back in my sealing/Framing
