hasa68mustang
12-30-2006, 07:00 PM
when mike and I left he had did a best of 145 or something, when he first got there he played it and the coils got HOT. you could smell them a good 10 minutes after he had it turned off. dunno about blowing them though. I gues the gains were wacky and they tried getting them straightened out but I think most were disappointed.

squeak12
12-30-2006, 07:01 PM
Did he strap them or one per coil?

pimpedout97x
12-30-2006, 07:02 PM

the727kid
12-30-2006, 07:05 PM
He said 1 per coil but I thought they were strapped too?

squeak12
12-30-2006, 07:08 PM
Batteries wired to 12 V?

Gain matched?

Chevyaudio
12-30-2006, 07:08 PM
I hope they were strapped...If not, These are the problems that me and few others warned of with one amp per coil, You run into all kinds of problems.

with a single 20.1 @ .5 nominal, The dustcap on my BTL got warm, but not too too hot.

squeak12
12-30-2006, 07:10 PM
My dustcap on my 12" BTL was pretty warm after burps for about 5-10 minutes off and on with sundowns at .35

Chevyaudio
12-30-2006, 07:13 PM
The one time my BTL got both of the 20.1s Strapped at .5 (each amp .25) It was only 10 seconds, and it didnt get warm at all...LOL

the727kid
12-30-2006, 07:13 PM
These were warm and gave a nice smell lol. The amps were burning up too.

Chevyaudio
12-30-2006, 07:15 PM
Meh...Mine never smelled, and my 20.1s never even think about heating up. I run one of them at .5 Nominal daily, and even after a 4 hour road trip listening to music, it is barely warm.

squeak12
12-30-2006, 07:18 PM
Mine smelt, but I think it was excess glue cause it went away after the first few burps. My brahma did the same thing when I got it.

So who thinks they accidentially had some 24 volt batteries?

the sundowns shut off above 18v

12-30-2006, 07:39 PM
yea if they somehow wired the batts to 24 volts, his car wouldnt of liked it very much and it would of let him know very quickly, hopefully he didnt blow them, that be $hitty! Cant wait to see some pics and hear what happened.

Can anyone say video? :D

12-30-2006, 07:40 PM
they were strapped @ 1.4 ohm

tommyk90
12-30-2006, 07:42 PM

My guess is that he somehow wired the coils out of phase or something similar.

Chevyaudio
12-30-2006, 08:28 PM
Robin...he did strap the amps right. Not one amp per coil correct?

Kenny Pollock
12-30-2006, 08:28 PM
Yeah, was a ****** day... subs aren't blown, but I would get dual 2s if they were.

The problem is still unknown, the amps were red hot... stable voltage (NO voltage drop) ...subs both moved, although my new BTL was stiff from not bein broken in.

Good thing is that Ill be past 150 when things go right, I'm very confident about that.

I slept in my car last night and Jon has worked over 30 hours STRAIGHT yesterday/today....he's just now getting sleep.

Someone link me to a good clamp meter and oscope...need to buy those for sure.

Definatly need to to a detailed inspection. Start from the front and work your way to the back scanning over everything.

Also, where is your peak and where is your song frequencies? Chevy is at that same score and going up with half the power and only 1 12" sub. Sounds like you need to do a **** load more testing :)

Lots more testing will be done when this problem is fixed....I've only used my TermLab for 10 minutes or so.

We guessed 78 volts... but everything is so ****ing confusing with the amps strapped.

How do you set the gains with strapped amps and what impedance so we set with, 2 ohms or 1?

Your gaining to base it off of the load that each individual amp is seeing.

Turn the gain all the way up on the slave amp.

On the master amp, start off with the gain ALL the way down. Turn it up until you hear clipping (then turn it down an 1/8 turn or so) or until you are comfortable with where it's at.

Thats the way I've always done it and never had any problems.

Turn the gain all the way up on the slave amp.

On the master amp, start off with the gain ALL the way down. Turn it up until you hear clipping (then turn it down an 1/8 turn or so) or until you are comfortable with where it's at.

Thats the way I've always done it and never had any problems.

Set your gains like this Kenny.

When you get to that much power, don't use the DMM method.

Not too familiar with what clipping sounds like...

And should I leave bass boost off? I know you're gonna say yes, just making sure

Uh... while I'm at Sears maybe Ill get a battery charger... how many amps/what features should I look for for charging 7 blue tops? My alternator still hasn't charged them... they sit at 12.6 with car on....

saywhat?

i may get flamed but it seemed like noone was 100% sure on what to do, so i dont know why it ws really messed with, but its unfortunate that it happened that way.

i did a 138.1 at 39 hz once the guy from floridaspl left. i had my **** ALL WRONG. Joel helped me out and we got it doing very well IMO. I pulled a ~136 on music, the Jhypnotized song, the first long low note.




Also, FOOD WAS THERE ****IT! WE SAID BRING YOUR OWN! IF YOU HAD A PROBLEM, you DID NOT READ. it was only a couple people, no names, and they said it TO ME, not knowing who i was, which i though was fairly comedic at the least.

was a very fun day though.

And as for the heating of the amp, make sure the ground wires going into the amp are as short as possible.

tprj82
12-31-2006, 09:24 PM
also make sure the amps aremt running at .175 ohms

dbornotdb

Let me throw this in, as I wired everything up.
The batteries are wired for 12 volts, not 24.
The subs are strapped 2 per sub in series so they are 1.4 to the amps. So they are seeing .7 per amp. Warrantied to .5 so that should be no problem.

With the 84.xxx volts that were mentioned earlier. They were figuring out what voltage to set the gains at but the big question was what load to use? What the amps are getting together or what they see each? Someone mentioned what they see each in this thread so that was NOT what was used and it was decided to turn the gains down till the proper answer was got and the proper tools purchased. (clamp meter and o-scope)

The bass boost was turned all the way down and the slave amp had everything turned down. Gains included. If they should have been turned up, we didn't do that. Thought the master controlled them.

Was I disappointed? Yes and no.
Yes becasue he didn't get the score he wanted. I felt bad for him when smoke rolled out. But they aren't blown so that is a good thing.
No because they were freaking loud when he did turn it up. Just ask any of my neighbors. One guy came over and said we vibrated him out of his bed.

I would have liked to have more time to smooth the pods out and prime them and the amp rack. But **** happens.

I also discovered he likes bass way more than hearing his mids and highs.
And I got a very nice 12 hours of sleep before waking up to head out to the final Bucs game. Still tired though.

It was something easy. Apparently being tired and wiring do not go together.

Anyways, it plays now as the other thread has shown.
