    I need of help

    I **** at explaining things so hang in there.

    Im putting together my list for nex spring-summer upgrade.
    Im adding a ZX2500 to make 2 total. I looked into going with 1 MOJO 4K or a SAZ-4500 but this is my far cheapest option. The problem is the amp is not stappable but I can link the RCAs so that means two bass remotes. Is there a device like some audiocontrol unit that I can run infront of the amps to eliminate this issue, and just run the bass remote the unit has? Ive been on Amazon looking but nothing has came up.

    Also will my electrical hold up? It does OK with 1 2500 but I still have moments of drop, mostly at idle but some tracks still pull it down at speed. It dont stay down but it drops. I think my chassis ground isnt cutting it. I will be adding a ground from the front soon. ( Scion tC )

    EA 200 amp, 1 Group 34 YT front 3 Group 51 YTs in the hatch. there will be four full runs of 1/0 OFC(2 and 2) when the time comes. Both amps will see a 2ohm load and they are pretty efficent.

    I really want to do this right so please, any input is welcome.

    As for sub choices. Ive narrowed it down to. BLTs N2s, Zcons, RD Alphas, HCCAs, RE MTs. Or just go with what I know, DC XLs. Box is 4.5 cubes tuned at 32 with areos(2 12s).


    Cliffs... Just read it

    The tc is already getting beat. She has 20K miles and my hatch panels are screwed on. Dash is broken somewhere. Headliner rattles like hell.

    Im at about 25k miles. my hatch panels still rattle like hell (might havta screw em on like you did). My glove compartment sags on left side. and that mothereffin headliner is the biggest pain in the *** ever! I just went back low power and am working on maximizing my SQ (lurkin Diyma like a muddafugga). Actually happier now than I was flexxin the hell out of it. (still miss it sometimes though) Thats why i'm waiting to see what happens with this thread in case I decide I wanna go back loud.

    You mean like a Bass Enhancer? My buddy has this. I need of help

    It's decent for the price but settings are somewhat limited. Those amps are power hungry beasts.. You're going to get a fair amount of drop with two of 'em. I used to have one in an F150 with a DC Alt bigger than that and it still dropped when I let her eat. I didn't go crazy with batteries though either.

    I got some of the foam hushmat and put it in the panels.. It helped a bit. And I put it where the back of the sunroof cover thing goes.

    Did you have the 2011 model? they seem to be better then the old ones. I had a 08 1500 and it was hungry.

    Re: I need of help

    you could always use that thing he recommended or an Audiocontrol Epicenter, use y-splitters to connect both amps to the processor then your knob from the unit itself could be your "bass knob".

    the question is though, is the bass knob on kicker amps an actual bass boost knob or more for gain attenuation?

    Re: I need of help

    I might just be stuck with 2 knobs. Ill scope both amps and find the one with the lowest voltage and match it up. And try to keep the knobs matched. Only move them when the sound is off

    What about some kind of radioshack adapter that adapts 2 of those phone Jack type things into one.
