    Will they blow?

    Hey peeps. Working on my first build. I have two Rockford p3d4 15's should I go with a 4 ohm or 1 ohm load into a Rockford Power t1500?

    I'd run the amp at one ohm and take it easy on the gain. You'll probably be able to keep the signal clean and as long as you're getting proper power to them in the correct enclosure, they should sound great.

    Cool. I'll watch those gains and yes I will have the proper power. Big 3 is my final step. Thanks Tilt

    Re: Will they blow?

    Yes. I hope so. I built a custom box using the specifications that Rockford had in their manual that came with the speakers. I used high quality three quarter inch MDF, drywall screws, tite bond, and silicone. Labyrinth ported. I'm thinking I should of went sealed though.

    Sounds like a good quality box without pics or other evidence to prove otherwise. Glad to see a first timer not taking the short way out. Good luck with build, and post pictures when done!

    Patient everyone. I'm 41 years old. I've been a Basshead for 25 years. Just now have the time to start this hobby. Just bought a Ford Transit Connect. This thing is just waiting to filled with speakers. Been studying and hard (especially wiring configurations) for the last 6 months on how to build. I have Rockford amps and speakers. You'll see

    Yup



    "When I listen to a stereo loudspeaker playback in my room and an auditory scene has formed in my mind, how would I know that what I hear is an accurate replica of an auditory scene that could be had at the recording venue? Or more generally, that this is an auditory scene that could have existed at all?"
