OK since I am the oldschooler of sorts and I am now getting into the new school stuff, What is all the differances in amps (watts and class), I am used to the old school underated stuff so are your now paying for the wattages, dollar to watt or something like that? I also have no Idea on this class junk? class a, b, c, d, and so on whats all that about? I was used to " ya got what ya paid for". I think the classes refer to sound quality right?
So I may sound dumb now but hay I have been out of it since 96 or so, I had kids and other hobbies, but now I have an hour drive to work one way so I have time to enjoy it again.
Ok so I asked about the amps now on to Subs and stuff, I see all these super high wattage Subs and speakers how are these thing rated now? I never saw the need to have a sub I couldn't come close to maxin'out in power, when I got out of the CA stuff JL was hittin it big and had some monster stuff, Soundstream and Kicker were all big players then to. I got out right before the db drag race's started up. I just wana know how all the speaker ratings add up to what I am used to
The last system I had when I competed was in a 1991 Laser, Black if anyone ever saw it?
It was respectable even today I think, But that was back when SQ was king in 1994 -1993 area. I ran in the under 250 watt class with all kicker components and subs.
4 Kicker Comp 12's Sealed Enclosure
4 Kicker 6.5's
4 Kicker 5.2's
4 Kicker tweets ( don't remember which)
Alpine HU 5140
Alpine 11 band passive EQ with sub adj.
2 RF punch 40I DSM's
2 RF punch 60I DSM's
2 1 Farad Caps
and about 300 pounds of Dynamat and I still had the back seat
250 watt and under class = 1600 watts
Those were the good old days
Highest spl I got was 142 DB
I was 18 Y/O
So all you guys can call me old school now but I feel like an *** now cause all the tech has changed
