    One sub=lower class...

    I am seriously thinking of running one SoloX 18" off of two Eclipse DA7232's. I want to compete Meca M5 but don't know if they have anything in Arizona. I could pull off street C in DB Drag. If you know of any events in Arizona, help me out.

    Check out USACi at www.caraudioevents.com
    Theres always tons of comps in Arizona, and if not Arizona, Vegas, which i dont think is to far from there. If you want to travel, there is a 2x weekend in Northern California on the Sept. 25/26th weekend for USACi, there also may be a show friday night, but its still up for debate.

    Just check out that site, and it should set u up. dB Drag isnt to popular in Arizona.

    Cottonwood, AZ---7/24
    Glendale, AZ---7/25

    I guess if u really want to go u can go in 2 weeks lol.

    Also if u can, theres a Triple point event in Vegas this weekend. $45 to enter, which for a triple, isnt bad. You should check it out if u like to drive.

    Id personaly send more power to the solox, 4kw might get a decent score but more power couldnt hurt.

    That is 2000 watts each channel. Equals up to 8000 watts.

    4000 watts max.....1000 per channel rms=2000 watts per amp x 2 amps = 4000 watts

    Re: One sub=lower class...

    Even with "only" 4kW on that sub, you are going to blow the coil if you abuse that sub like most people I know do.....

    Lots of thin wire gives great BL (40+) but not so hot (or actually very hot) for power handling...

    1 volt = [1(kg)(meter^2)] / [(second^3)(ampere)]

    1 watt = 1 joule / second
    1 watt = (1 Newton)(meter) / second
    1 watt = [1 kg/(second^2)] (meter) / second

    simplifying we find:

    1 watt = [1(kg)(meter)] / (second ^3)


    therefore:

    P = (I)(V)

    1 watt = (1 volt)(1ampere)
    1 watt = ( [1(kg)(meter^2)] / [(second^3)(ampere)] )(1 ampere)
    1 watt = [1(kg)(meter^2)] / (second^3)


    And that is WHY Power is in the SI units of Watts. enjoy!

    Re: One sub=lower class...

    Its 2000 max "per channel", two channels, dual mono. I know its the max rating, but that is what I plan on running it at.

    4kW rms is the power rating you'll have if you use 2amps or 8kW peak. Eclipse uses off terminology at times....



    1 volt = [1(kg)(meter^2)] / [(second^3)(ampere)]

    1 watt = 1 joule / second
    1 watt = (1 Newton)(meter) / second
    1 watt = [1 kg/(second^2)] (meter) / second

    simplifying we find:

    1 watt = [1(kg)(meter)] / (second ^3)


    therefore:

    P = (I)(V)

    1 watt = (1 volt)(1ampere)
    1 watt = ( [1(kg)(meter^2)] / [(second^3)(ampere)] )(1 ampere)
    1 watt = [1(kg)(meter^2)] / (second^3)

    Do you plan on plugging in to a nuclear reacture to pull off the MAX rating max means nothing. :thumbsup

    No, instead I'm going to plug each amp into 3000 potatoes(series). That should give me the power I need.
