    Skar VVX-12D2 on AB VFL-100.1 (1500 rms) in BHE Prefab

    Sorry for the poor quality vid, other camera is dead and I has no AA's ftl. Absolutely Lovin the Skar! Noticeably louder and lower and I can't get it warm with the gain at almost 1/2 way and the sub on +2 outa 4 at the head unit. Sub is still pretty **** stiff too. Think it still has some breakin in to do. Will get better vid when I get some AA batts.

    Nice, but turn the bass off on your head unit and reset your gains to ensure the future safety/longevity of the sub.

    Bass is at 0 as well as bass boost. I know how to tune my system thank you. I do not have a bass knob with this amp so I use the head units subwoofer level (built in gain att) as my bass knob. That is what i have set at 2 out of 4. I listen to all types of music and back it down to 0 when listening to stuff other than rap so it blends a lil better with the front stage. Thanks for the tip though.

    Then it should have been worded different..thank you.

    Also the sub should not get hot. If it is you are generating to much heat by power or distortion that the sub can not dissipate. If that continues you will have a sub that will fail. Just saying.....

    Not defensive, just confident in my abilities. As you can see it was just a misunderstanding anyways.

    I just hooked up my pair last night - wow they are pretty impressive.

    I had a pair of 12w6's and these def hit harder however I was running the w6's sealed.

    But either way for less than 1/2 the price I think these are some **** impressive subs!

    Awesome. I've had AA Chaos, IA Leathal Injections, the SA-12, Kickers, and even a RE MT/PSI Hybrid 12 and I have to say this is the BEST sounding sub I have ever owned.

    Decided to flip my box around and ghetto seal it off to see how it sounded. Results are iffy. To my ear sounds like it got louder on higher frequencies but lost some of its low end output, but it sounds clean as hell! Gonna leave it like this for a while and play with it.

    Re: Skar VVX-12D2 on AB VFL-100.1 (1500 rms) in BHE Prefab

    Played with it this morning and brought my ssf up a lil and backed off the gain some (think maybe it was loading off the trunk lid and was helping keep it under control when it was flipped the other way) got the sub back under control thermally. After beating on it for a while full tilt it was a lil warm but not nearly like it was last night and no more stinky FTW.

    This thing is a BEAST driver's door open. Brings the low end back big time! Pretty **** happy right now.

    I like it, only have to have the 60 side of the seat down, which I keep down most of the time anyways to help keep the Eagle cool.
