    If horns are not Loud enough? what to do

    horns are NOT loud enough to keep up with boom.

    I need a killer front stage.

    Make one or me

    thinking 2 pairs of coaxils
    and 2 pairs of components

    they are cd 1 e's powerd by an arc amp that does 70 x 2 at 4 ohms.

    I just dunno what to do...


    I thinking of getting 2 sets fo germaniums, 2 sets of slc coaxils and putting them in my car to get rid of the weak front stage issue.

    My horns also mute after a certain volume. Its getting anoying

    what are you powering them with..

    how many watts?

    i think they are 8 ohm

    and my amp is 70 X 2 at 4 ohm.. around 50 watts? that not enough, could tha be my problem

    If they are 8 ohm, they are probably seeing 35 watts... should be plenty for horns.

    Find out what ohm they are and how much power they are rated for... if they will take more power, try that first. Watch your hearing.

    Re: If horns are not Loud enough? what to do

    Horns should never not be loud enough.

    Let me rephrase this, if horns are not loud enough your a ****ing retarded who needs to donate your ears to someone who will learn how to use them.

    OR

    Your a ****ing retard who can't install car audio.

    Eitherway your still a mother****ing retard, the thread title helps prove this futhermore.

    Thank you.
