I think it's pretty good for that low of tuning, running 4 ohms and on music.

thanks! i am getting to fi q 15 running at 2 ohm on 2500 watts, doing same boxes
with new batcap 2000 underhood
and dynomat for the back doors so that presure loads off them better

and i will to test inbetween each stage to see how much each improves score

LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE ANY OTHER CHEAP IDEAS FOR BETTER NUMBERS

why?

idk, lol. because you can't beat high scores that are nice n low (Hz) :)

sounds good! i will do 8 cubes each and tune to 18hz!!!! it will hit like every note!!!! lol

Not a bad score at all.:)

Forgot to ask but why is the Stetsom running at 4ohms? You realize with rise it is probably running 5ohm or higher:(

I bet unlike my system yours sounds good also.

Ah didn't see you were on stock elec. That score should increase significantly with an alt upgrade and another batt in back

Thanks alot! its the loudest around my parts! there is a little show here in augest and i have to win!!!!

Once you do you will be hooked I bet. I know I was. I love my trophys more than my wife dog and cat put together lol.

ya its pretty good with the bose!



how do you know that?



What do you mean how do I know that:wow: Box rise, impedance rise, it all plays a factor man. You should do some research on the subject. I would be willing to bet a paycheck you are sitting at 5ohms at least. You are never going to get 100% of what the amp is putting out, nature of the beast.

hmm i didnt know about that stuff... would you mind sharing more?

I am not aware of any formula to come up with rise. Each install is effected differently. I have my amp wired down to .34 ohms, and after rise I am probably 1.5ohms or more. This is a cheap amp also, no protect, nothing. In order to get the power from your amp, you have to wire it down. But make sure you have the electrical to do so.

I don't recommend this of course but I run all my amps at half of rated ohms. The reason being is I know box rise will bring me right up there ohm wise. Never blown an amp except for dumb wiring mistakes when I was in a hurry.

Of course I don't pound the lows I have my subsonic filter set fairly high.

I agree, only way to get power from your amp

not too bad but should be a lil louder i did 144 on music with 2 re se 12's on a zx1500.1 but still very nice score!

people put way too much stock in numbers around here.

good score. as always it could be better, it could be worse.

Get this wired down and you will see a big gain I am sure;)

Nice number for having the amp at 4ohms for sure. I'd wait till you get a bigger battery then drop the amp down and give it a try. But only with more battery and watch your voltage and how hot the amp gets.

I think that is the key with wiring down any amp. Having the power to back it, my boy will be wiring down his Stetsom 7k to .35 daily, but with rise should be well above 1ohm. Only way to get the power out of it though, rise can be a muthfvcker:(

You didn't get metered @ Bumpfest in Cortez did ya?
