    More Stetsom 10KD Testing

    I got a chance to do some more testing with my 10kd today. For the first test I wired it at .5 ohm on 3 fully charged Kinetik 16 volt batteries. For subs I used 2 Soundstream T5 12's. Here are the results...........................

    Start Voltage..............17.5
    Drop Voltage..............12.8
    Ac volts.......................87
    Ac Amps......................88
    Watts.....................7656
    Imp Rise..................... .99ohms


    The second test I used 3 fully charged Kinetik 16 volt batteries. For subs I used 2 Soundstream T5 12's wired at 2ohms. Here are the results.....................

    Start Voltage.............17.5
    Drop Voltage..............13.8
    Ac volts.....................142
    Ac amps.......................37
    Watts........................5254watts
    Imp rise.....................3.84ohms

    ***All measurements were taken after 4 seconds into burp***

    You happen to have the DC amp draw rates for these tests? I dont feel like doing math.

    See how even with higher impedance it does more power. These amps don't need to be run into the ground to get power. Point proven at 2ohms still does over 5k. And wonder why you're hardly getting any impedance rise out of those subs? That amp loves 1.5-1.8 after impedance rise for maximum efficiency and power. Nice job

    Re: More Stetsom 10KD Testing

    Why such a huge voltage drop? Running just off batts for power?

    Solid power output, but the price chased me away...

    I can't wait to star my new build, I'll be doing some test new week... Hopefully I get an impedance rise between 1.5 and 2 ohms!

    I was only using 3 kinetik 16volt batteries. I'm going to do some more testing with eight kinetik 16volts, and see what I get.

    more like 5kw @ almost 4 ohms, even with the voltage drop

    How much would you expect to pay for an amp that can deliver this much power on 12v? $2000, $1800, $1600, $1400, $1200 or less?

    Why dont you post some of your test results on 12v and 16v.

    Re: More Stetsom 10KD Testing

    Both of the tests that I did had voltage drops below 14volts. So they actually are 12 volt tests. If your suggesting that I run 12volt batteries....The 10kd was not optimized to run below 12volt, so I could possibly damage my amp and I can't afford to do that.

    Correction, below 10v. This amp is designed from 10-18v.
