    They can handle it with the gains maybe 1/5 of the way up (2 volt input) and crossed over at 100Hz. I need new speakers so the amp can really shine.

    Now it's like 10-15 cents a watt.

    I know what your saying I've been looking at alot of stuff online the past few weeks. I can't believe what has happened to this industry. Even my beloved Earthquake seems to have gone down the crapper

    Re: Alot has changed in 10 years

    quality hasn't dropped... if anything its gotten better, BUT, there is a TON of crap out there now... know what im sayin... if you look hard enough, you can find better, but if you don't do your research, you can easily buy crap....

    I'd say average is .50cents/watt... if it goes up from there, you either A. bought some REALLLLY good stuff, or B. Bought a prestige "brand name" like X-tant, or JL....those retail for about 1000 bucks for 1000watt amp...but may not be as good as a cliff designs, or IA amp

    edit: what you mean down the crapper.. its still around (dunno if its any good)



    Refs: Projectpat, XylerB, decipha, blados, protonman, Wlmrs, Nucleareskimo, gl0ck, mobeious, JBizzle (picked up box) mlstrass (box design) Mazzasec (bought 18" RD Alpha from him) SKMFKR: Traded subs Wrenchguy: Sold 18" Q to him. psychoacoustics: bought some bullet horn tweets from him Shinju: bought some 0awg wire from him. Sold a box and 18" HDC318 to chitown_impala. Bought my 2 custom 15's from 99Vic on steave meade forum. NJTStang11- picked up 18" SSX and box from him krispy cream SCAMMED ME $200!!!





    2 Pistol Shrimps in a 4.0 cu^ft box tuned to 32 hz for the WIN !!

    Re: Alot has changed in 10 years

    Alot has but there still is some decent stuff out there. I own all older amps myself. Although i have toyed with the idea of checking out some newer stuff, i always come back to the older gear. I know they are good, and i know what they can do.

    In PA Earthquake was not well known. But was some of the best stuff you could buy. Their logo was kinda cheesy and their stuff wasn't flashy but it was of the best quality. They where on the cutting edge too. They where not affraid to try new things. Now it seems they have all but disappeared. Even their website is old. Still talking of stuff that is 10 years old
