Hi all! Wow I think it has been ten years since I last focused on car audio. I'm back!
Here's what happened that leads up to the title.
I bought an amp at Walmart. Yeah, laughing begins. :p
Actually I bought two. I bought a 125.2 Kicker DX series. Then I went and bought a kicker DX 250.1.
I bought them thinking I was going to power the doors, mmc650s by Polk, with the 125.2, and thinking I would power a pair of rear DS693s (kicker) off the mono amp. Stupid decision.
Well then I decided I was taking both amps back. Suddenly, I can only find one receipt; the one for the 125.2. So, I became stuck with the kicker monoblock d class that's brand new. Now I don't know but here's what I'm wondering:
The monoblock is definitely filtered just by looking at specs. In my mind I thought what the heck at first, maybe I can just run the 6x9s together as mono and lose stereo, since I have the Polks right next to me in the SUV. Then when I realized the filtering aspect, being a machinist I usually problem solve, so I thought, could I just open the amp up, find the cap(s) that are filtering out the high hz, and solder in new caps to the board? Or would I be better off keeping the amp new in box, and trading or selling for an actual 2 channel?
If this is something people do easily, I do solder a lot and this would not, presumably be hard for me to do, if that's all I would have to do. I could be at radio shack and done in an hour if it's as easy as the idea sounds. But could it be done that easily and worth it, or would it be worth the time of selling it as new, not getting this project finished quick, and waiting to find the right amp?
Thanks for any suggestions. I guess I'm a little antsy to get the 6x9s going soon is all. I do have an old Sony 202 the neighbor gave me, I could steal any parts from it's board I need to, because it's only 20w x2, possibly not even needing radioshack. Haha. Yeah this is goofy.
