View Full Version : blue print for power acoustik mofo 15 152x d2 box

01-29-2013, 12:16 AM
ported box tuned around 33 im going to be running 1500 rms to the sub an its a van so space is not an issue i have never built a box so i wanted something i could look at i also sent a email to power acoustik but they were not much help

01-29-2013, 01:24 AM
I had a 12 and they won't take that much. 600-900rms was fine. 1200 was way too much

01-29-2013, 02:02 AM
did you break it in for the full 48 hours?

01-29-2013, 05:12 AM
Where does it say to break it in for 48 hours? I liked mine. Just know they r overrated

01-29-2013, 12:04 PM
yeah the new ones do not compare to the old school 4" coil beasts!

I would be careful and not give them more than 750w each

01-29-2013, 03:34 PM
said on the website when i ordered it.. but i have been reading the new ones are ****

01-29-2013, 06:53 PM
I wasn't trying 2 dog on them. I loved my 12. Id just go with manufacture box specs. Mine hit low. U should be ok. What amp r u gonna use?

01-29-2013, 07:19 PM
i think you can get away with more then 900rms, i had one and it was hooked to a sundown saz-2k. it was probly getting about 1200 rms or more

make sure power is clean however

Planet Audio AP3000D should be at my door tomorrow hopefully wire came today but that is very disappointing that the mofo is that weak

01-29-2013, 07:35 PM
1500 is gonna smoke that turd quiiick!! My buddy had one running on about 1kw~. Played a sweep to find his "sweet spot" and it smoked half way through the third 10 second sweep.

01-29-2013, 09:41 PM
prolly run at 4ohms until i get another one.. was considering this dc audio 18 off car audio classifieds just aint got the money right now

01-29-2013, 11:43 PM
I'm not 100% sure but id say that amp is way over rated too

01-30-2013, 12:17 AM
probable is iv read that planet audio amps are garbage but its only $100 hope that gets hear tomorrow i aint had anything in my car for a week now dont even wanna drive around

01-30-2013, 12:19 AM
those ap3000s have a design flaw so ive read

01-30-2013, 01:44 AM
what kind of flaw i cant find much on it

01-30-2013, 05:34 PM
yeahhhhhhhh just got done hooking it up way louder then before an i have everything turned down an bass knob quarter way up **** is rapeing that mofo hopefully it last awhile before it fucks up

01-30-2013, 10:30 PM
wow that didnt last long even at 4ohm rip mofo

01-31-2013, 02:39 AM
U should have set the gain the right way. That's more than likely y it fried it. Can u send it in for warranty?

01-31-2013, 02:47 AM
wow that didnt last long even at 4ohm rip mofo

Lol. Was it loud while it lasted?

01-31-2013, 12:53 PM
sounded good for a minute until bob marley appeared in the back also i got it to work with the other set of push terminals but it sounds fucked up i think it is still under warranty.. BUT i cracked the basket trying to break a striped screw that was in the box so ill have to see if they will take it back.. i mean i just got everything back yesterday now i gotta start the wait processes all over again

01-31-2013, 01:12 PM
That sux. I'm waiting on subs 2 come 2day. And can't install anything til I get my car runningv right. Good luck

01-31-2013, 01:24 PM
good luck to you also i feel your pain.. if they do take it back im thinking of goin with something else **** these new mofos the only thing that really made me wanna get it was the rms ratings its crazy that they can legally lie about that

01-31-2013, 01:49 PM
whats really weird is i took it to my car to finish it off an it dont sound bad still gives off deep bass with no rattling noise.. did i burn out a voice coil?

01-31-2013, 01:59 PM
Throw a multimeter on them coils and see what's up. If smoking something was going wrong. Still man, I'd upgrade. There's good stuff out there for a good price if you know what to look for.

Try free airing the mofo, see if you can hear anything mechanical going on.

01-31-2013, 02:28 PM
you could it was a rattling noise.. what would you recommend in the price range

01-31-2013, 07:15 PM
now its dead.. i want my money back damit!!

R.I.P. Mofo...:tomatofa:The new ones are str8 garbage.Yeah it should be illegal for companies to inflate ratings just to rip you off.
I seriously doubt you'll get a replacement.

amazon always gives me my money back.. but since i broke the basket idk might have bought this 1

if you have to buy s $100ish 15" sub, get a Audiopipe TXX series. Specifically, the ones with the fiber cones. Those cheap subs are actually pretty beast. 3" coil on the TXX- BE15

02-01-2013, 12:58 PM
How do we know it's the subs fault and not user error?

You more than likely didn't set your amp right and were clipping it to hell.

02-01-2013, 02:04 PM
prolly i just wanted to play it.. they took my amp back an that was my fault so ill have to wait an see @av83 i was lookin at those actually only reason i didnt go with them is cuz the rms on the mofo was better also i wasn't liking there surrounds

02-01-2013, 02:07 PM
been seriously considering saving up an getting something better they had a dc 18 in my price range

02-01-2013, 03:50 PM
well amazon wont take it back but they did give me my money back.. lied my *** off to the hazardous materials guy told him it caught on fire as soon as i hooked it up (:

02-02-2013, 03:08 AM
had to tell somebody.. amazon gave me my money back an told me i can keep the blown sub something about the magnet being hazardous material an they wont take it back but power acoustik said there gonna recone my sub that fucked cuz its still under warranty so i basically i got a sub for free.. when i get both back im gonna have the amp set by a professional.. prolly was my fault
