    blew a JL

    can you believe it....

    all that talk about JL Audio subs

    i have an hifonics z1000d and 2 jlw3v2d4's wired at 1 ohm.

    i was told w/the right box and if i have my amp tuned them jl's could handle the watts



    Well after having them babies for 2 months, i blew one!! today!! haha

    went back to shop (hi fi buys for those that live south), told the guy i blew a jlw3v2, he was like wtf.... yea right..... we went outside he heard the "farting" was like danggggggg

    then they went into a big thing about who installed it and all that crap .. when really they tuned the amp, wired the subs, sold the box (box matches specs)..... soooo, i got them replaced...

    i went ahead and used my own judgement and got 2 d2's instead of d4's .... so now i'm running them babies at 2ohms... meaning w/my amp they are getting now 750watts total giving each sub about a good 375.... i'm pretty happy now...

    sound is a little different too... they sound better.... the guy was like yeah b/c the ohm isn't so low on the sub and now the subs will move better or something.... i really didn't knwo what he was talkin about but i did know that they aren't gettin max watts anymore and a li' more closer to rms......

    Also, my lights aren't blinking too bad.. guess this zeus i got is taking a lot of power from my car..... but now seeing how we're at 2ohms, and no blinking........ no need for an Alt..... esp w/this pos car i got...... haha!

    i still want more powerful subs though........ something w/a low end of a jl but the loudness of a kicker.... hummmmm... o well..... maybe later... i'm content for now, but tomorrow i'll probably be dreamin about new woofers again !

    shoot w/this big ol amp one needs to use all of its power (1000 watts)!
