I'm going to just be up front about this and say my sound system is lacking.
I had 400RMS before, and have since upgraded to 1200RMS from Kicker CVX 10"s.
In my honest opinion, it doesn't feel like the ~1000RMS it should be @ 1.5 Ohms.
It's in a 1.8 cubit foot box which is the same box my 400RMS subs were in.
(I have a single cab truck, don't tell me my box is small.)
Point is, I feel like I might have 500RMS with my new Brutus BRZ1200.1D....and that's strange.
I figured if 400RMS shook my rear view mirror like no other, than ~1000RMS would make that **** move down and go crazy or something.
I swear to god if someone says "set your gain lower", you're not helping, because I've tried all of that adjustment stuff and nothing makes me get that extra 500RMS I deem lacking.
So I just had some quick questions. My headlights dim when the bass hits, if I upgrade my battery, will I get more wattage and get that extra bass I think I'm lacking?
The guy at Brutus said 400RMS is a sweet spot for a 1.8 cubic feet box. Is that true? =/
If I upgrade my battery, will I need another alternator? Currently at 130amps.
Are Kicker CVXs meant to be blasted all the time? I blew my MTX SVC subwoofer since it was meant for crisp bass and not to be blasted. I figured the Kicker Competition Dual Voice Coil sub would be able to take the beating.
Thanks for any help given!
