    Re: System Keeps Killing Amps! HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    some power acoustik stuff is pretty cheap. but the mofos are one of the best 12's or 15's you can get. they out perform even the pricier L7's. and my old power acoustik amp BAMF is not a bad amp eather. and yes a 4000 watt system is "POWERFUL IN A CAR THATS ELECTRICAL SYSTEM IS FROM 1973"

    This statement has fail all over it. Best 12's or 15's you can get? No friend. I hope your not including fi dc re sundown and all the other superior brands. That bamf is only pushing 1k-1500 watts. Thats not powerful at all im sorry. And seeing how you had no electrical to back it up your prob not even seeing that. Pa is pretty much all cheap, can it be loud yes but still cheap. All the equip you have mentioned so far is sub-par. No offense but it is what it is.


    And as for your vid, well flex is impressive to some true. But a old car will rattle likle crazy especially if you have no deadner.
    There are many vids to be found with mad flex. Like these of mine. My car has 2-3 layers (depending on location) of deadner, and 5 cans of expanding foam in the trunk. Still have pretty good flex(even though I tried to get rid of it all, as flexing makes you loose db's.

    Re: System Keeps Killing Amps! HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    your system is hitting pretty hard but newer cars are much easier to flex. the sheet metal is like tissue paper compared to my sheet metal. my car is made of streight 16 guage steel, trust me i have been doing body work on it for years. it is like a tank compared to what newer cars use. i think its 24 guage. i threw my system in my friends civic once and everything was flexing. even the front bumper. and i said that the mofos are some of the best budget subs you can get. sure they dont out perform btl's or tc sounds but they are great fot the money. as for the class d BAMF 4000 w. it definatly pushes more than 1k. that would mean that i was getting that flex form 250 watts on each sub

    With the fuses it has it's only seeing 1-1500 thats just the way it is sorry. True newer cars are easier to flex but like I said with 2-3 layers of deadner and expanding foam thats the ticket. I def advise getting a nice box made. I do all of my boxes you can throw some sub par subs in a nice built efficient box and get mad output.

    fail, and you're doing something wrong.

    Yes.

    Cool story brah.

    Bad idea, sure didn't.

    It isn't, fail, and no.

    Doesn't seem like it holmes.

    scary brah.

    No, no, and it isn't a "4kw system" so stop calling it that.

    True story. 1500 is probably the most you're going to see out of that amp...any more and you're talking about some dirty power at that point.

    You come here asking a question and then you don't listen to answers and dismiss everyone's opinions...last time I checked you were the one needing help. Not to mention you say some lulztastic things along the way, how can we resist to not have some fun with that?
