    just bought this amp quik ?

    I just bought this amp

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...category=38638

    I was going to buy a pyramid, but after a bit of research.. their not durable and fail after a while long of use.. even my cousins did the same.

    Everyone said either Power Acoustik or Lanzar . So I first said ide only spend 140$ ... I ended up spending 175$ you guys know how it is.. MORE POWER NEEDED !!!! POWWEEERRRRR... anyways.. it will be here sometimes this week.

    NOw, im curious
    these being the specs:

    2 x 500 Watts RMS at 4 Ohms

    2 x 1000 Watts Max at 4 Ohms

    1 x 2000 Watts Max at 4 Ohms Bridged

    2 x 800 Watts at 2 Ohms

    this means I will nead a pair of DVC subs , or just one monster single sub at 4 ohms correct ?

    What would yall reccomend for subwoofers for this amp with these specs: under 120$

    go ebay searchin guys

    If you can find 2 Alpine type R's on ebay.....usually sold as a pair.
    There like $140.
    $120 for a nice pari of subs is a tad low

    i was about to tell ya, i highly doubt that it will put out anywhere NEAR half its bridged power (2000w?)

    maybe 700 if your lucky.

    well, I consider the old Vibe 250 to be basically the same as the 258 and that amp did 600-700 bridged. I would expect the 268 to be 800-900.

    Well you haven't owned the 268 now have you.

    The 268's wattage out put is very low. What do you think your going to get for such a low price but for that price you get 500 great sounding watts. I had that amp pushing a couple of pioneers but it couldn't distort them unless I turned on the bass boost and that's when the amp ran hot.

    Re: just bought this amp quik ?

    I got the dough to buy a Davinci sound stream !
    CASH ISNT **** FOR ME !

    Its logic ..... I dont compete, and understand that the rated wattage isnt what is advertised.

    I wanted reliability, THUMP , and low cost :

    Needless to say, Even though one of my cousins pyramids burnt out He had

    2 600 watt pyramid amps , each one bridged to its induvidual Pyramid Imperial 1200watt sub.

    I took a raidoshack spl meter ! and at his front seat , he was hitting 141db's


    CHEAP or not : THAT **** THUMP , MADE HEADS TURN .... I wasnt asking for people to drag on my purchase : or hate on the specs ! ... those who mostly DOG on SPECS are those who are in lack of experiance in efficiancy based projects :

    LOW COST PROJECT : Science will make it loud ! and the only ones to hear it, are those stopping to ask what I got ! Not how much decibals im putting out ! and if someone did stop to ask how much decibals.. well then maybe this lanzar made an impression : I WILL SEE SOON !

    Not everyone in here competes ! and many will agree with me , the best rating .. is a persons ear and the pride in their equipment.

    Some take more pride in the $$ they put into it. SOme who hit the same level with cheaper equipment, take pride in the work put into it !


    analogy : STOP FLAMING ****.. those who are respected are those who have been there done that and respect someones taste : most of the replys on this message are cool people:

    Only one seems insecure with the descision he once made to boast on others choice : ask yourself some questions before you make yourself look like an *** .



    Obviously N2audio :

    is a vetran member here and you "Dont" see this homie flaming my purchase: Instead he interviend with his personal experiance and prolly has upgraded since then ! WE all want more: Sometimes you gotta start somewhere to see if your the one who wants more:

    he's putting in his experiance and knowledge into what he thinks is problably the real output wattage ... Its still not the advertised ... but that wasnt the first thing outta his mouth doggin on outputs !

    **** here in San Antonio , I could prolly resale this amp for 250$ without question.

    Every ratshack SPL meter I've seen has only gone up to 126db Either way, I wouldn't exactly call that a reliable number.



    But regardless........back in the day I had a Lanzar. For the price, it was decent. It was a 4-channel, and I ran a pair of channels at 2ohm bridged for about 2 weeks........and though it would shut off after about 30 seconds (if I played it at too high of a volume level), the damn thing never fried


    Anyways......what's the word on the cost of your subs? Any chance you could budge up a little more??

    BEFORE MY JOB HERE: I worked at radioshack , ask them about their digital spl meter: Not the shelf one ! in the catalog ! theres a 95$ meter.. not the 65$ one your talking about.... its madfe for car audio... prolly not accurate but still .

    Re: just bought this amp quik ?

    k ****it, I knock about 1300 a check every two weeks, got a couple grand stored : Im being cheap ! LOL... If its was a new video card , or motherboard ide spend mad cash on it :

    Just my wife *****es at me about the system I have now being stock and I turn it up.

    I always say some price lower, and then I always spend more.. so like doin a line on snow you know dont buy small cuz yoll come back for moe

    range it to 200$ + shipping. Ill build the box now , and do the math now as well !

    Also : quik ? When I build my box, should I take the parameters of the speakers magnet into consideration for vas ? or ignore the volume of the speaker and make it in-significant to the enclosure ?




    Should I get 2 DVC subs ? bridge each sub for 2ohms , and use each channel per sub ?

    Those of you who once had a lanzar , or can obviously post knowledgeable non-falming educational suggestions .. give me your idea the best text schematic I should wire this amp ? It says its 2ohm stable, but with those specs im not seeing it showing two ohms bridges for max output ! should I dis-regard this ?

    Can 2 4ohm subs be bridge for max power out of this amp ?
