    lol!
    your so doped up you cant even tell an suv to a mini van lol, if you ran affordable amps you might be driving a mustang now instead of that Taurus, or maybe you got that from your mom and didnt even have savings to buy your own car, i hope the latter.

    ever stop and think that maybe i PM'd him and was just bored so I figured I would see how long Timmy would go back and forth with me?

    And yeah, I know how an SPL contest works. I coulda clipped the hell out of my stuff and probably gained a little more but I'm running a pair of 10"s that are rated at 600w~ rms and are getting almost double that, no thanks on the clipping. LOL I know everything has it's application and I know JL isn't an SPL brand but the guy was piiiiissed that someone with like 10% of his investment beat him that bad. After the show, we actually talked and he ended up buying a SunDown amp and an Fi BTL18. spent 1/2 the money, gained like 3dB and was MUCH happier with his setup. Again, when I see a post asking about PA and SS, mono-block amp, I just assume the poster isn't an SQ freak! hahaha

    I played around with it a few times, found out that I dont gain a 1/10 clipped to hell. Voltage was dropping way to far way to fast

    Put it this way. Clean I hold 14v clipped I drop to the 12s. With a big amp thats a big power lose. The way its set up for daily I get a minimul soft clip on 10% of the stuff I listen to.

    lol..... my dc power alt is pretty good. its rated 220a but does about 248amps @ 2k rpms. its charging alittle bit slower now tho it seems. again i thinks its where the battery i have under the hood is like completely shot/dead dread what ever you want to call it and wont hold a charge AT aLL. Its tied into my rear battery bank so the charge has to go through that dead @ss battery before it reaches the back battery bank. i know its not good thats why im probly unhooking it today and run it off my 3 dekas in back.

    On 14.4v the 5500 model should make about 3200RMS. Idk if they still are korean made amps. But i know they used to be.
