    Setting up everything, JF get over here!!

    For the plate amp for the sub, should I set the gains like the gains on a car amplifier?

    I have a dd 8". Is about 1 cube after disp good? And where should the port be firing?

    Ill add more as I think of it.



    Best receiver ever?
    I think so

    *thumbs up*

    I have no idea Contact DD for their recommedations...I assume this box is going to be tuned lower than a regular in-vehicle box?

    And where should the port be firing?
    Wherever's convienent. The same plane as the sub works, as well as firing it out the back.

    Are you downfiring the 8"? That might be a way to get the most out of the smaller driver, output wise...

    Hmm I havent thought of downfiring.
    For now Ill just do forward firing. I might change it later though

    For hookin up the plate amp to the receiver, do i use the preouts or the subwoofer mono output?

    If you can afford the Colossus, you can afford tube gear

    A mint Decware Zen SE84C sold on Audiogon last week for $395...
