    • I knows subwoofer technology has changed immensely over the past several years hell even ferrite magnets are made stronger today then they were 10 years ago but I still love me some older subs too  
    • I can't find any firmware-update for this unit. Has there never been new software for it?
    • There's one mfg I'm aware of with that feature -- Sony - a couple of their $200-250 models.  Are there others? It's a 15w HU unless stated otherwise.
    • They must be trying to cater to retards like everyone else these days.   Sonic had a few low end Diamond subs show up a few months ago but they are way over priced for what they are. 
    • I wanted to see what ole diamond audio was putting out these days since about 10+ years ago I used a lot of their stuff but knew they started making some junk but just wanted to see what was up and I see this weird red bolded disclaimer on every subwoofer they have listed on their products page.  SPECIAL NOTE:   LIKE ALL DUAL VOICE COIL SUBWOOFERS A DUAL 2 OHM SUBWOOFER IS ACTUALLY A 1 OHM...OR 4 OHM SUBWOOFER -
      IT WILL NEVER BE JUST 2 OHMS!!   
      AND A DUAL 4 OHM SUBWOOFER IS ACTUALLY A 2 OHM...OR 8 OHM SUBWOOFER -
      IT WILL NEVER BE JUST 4 OHMS!!

      BE CAREFUL WHEN DESIGNING YOUR AUDIO SYSTEM AND YOUR SELECTION OF AMPLIFIER/SUBWOOFER COMBINATION(S).   LOWER IMPEDANCE IS NOT A GOOD THING.  DAMPENING FACTOR OF THE AMPLIFIER SUFFERS (HOW IT CONTROLS THE SUBWOOFER) AND THE HEAT OF ANY AMPLIFIER DOUBLES WITH EVERY HALVING OF IMPEDANCE.  NOT A GOOD THING!!!  REMEMBER THAT HEAT IS YOUR ENEMY.   
    • I've used GT Mat for both, but I've done my car and these days I mostly use it to line metal speaker cabinets. Which is why I only need a quart.
    • There are some brands that are still in the same avenue that RE used to be.  Hint hint.
    • Hi everyone, I'm looking to upgrade my setup for the first time and have some questions.  I'm not an audiophile (maybe yet, haha) but I do love music and want it to sound reasonably good, considering price. But I wanna start with something basic and go from there. My plan is to buy the parts and get a local shop to install everything. Hoping to keep it around $500 (I'm Canadian but using USD to presumably make it easier for people here) all in if possible.  I have a 1997 Honda Civic CX. There's an aftermarket Kenwood deck in it but its old and I'll be replacing it. Beyond that there's 2 stock speakers in the back, and none in the front, just the plastic things that look like speakers, which I found kinda odd.  So onto the questions. How many speakers do I actually need? Can I just get a new deck, 2 speakers, and a powered sub and call it a day? Or do I need 4 speakers? The first scenario seems more convenient, because if I understand correctly (correct me if not), I can only plug in 4 things to the average lower-end deck. 4 speakers plus a sub would require me to get an amp, yes? Prefer to not go down that road if possible for budget reasons. Can I get 2 new speakers and keep the existing rear ones? Would that sound bad? Examples of components I'm looking at: Heads: https://www.crutchfield.ca/p_105KDX360B/JVC-KD-X360BTS.html https://www.crutchfield.com/p_130DS5120B/Pioneer-DEH-S5120BT.html Speakers: https://www.amazon.ca/Pioneer-TS-F1634R-200W-2-Way-Speakers/dp/B0081SRIFS/ref=sr_1_5?keywords=car+speakers&qid=1560738414&s=gateway&sr=8-5 https://www.amazon.ca/Kicker-43DSC6504-Coaxial-Speakers-DSC6504/dp/B01BLVEVNS/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=car+speakers&qid=1560738414&s=gateway&sr=8-4 https://www.amazon.ca/Rockford-Fosgate-R165X3-6-5-Inch-Full-Range/dp/B00BF6HWCM/ref=pd_sbs_107_10?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00BF6HWCM&pd_rd_r=fd3d6628-913e-11e9-a19e-076b366cd722&pd_rd_w=kgvev&pd_rd_wg=T8GM0&pf_rd_p=5dcda75b-8643-4da3-9bb1-5c0233790500&pf_rd_r=VZNPG9H461JQCD2FM8N0&psc=1&refRID=VZNPG9H461JQCD2FM8N0 Subwoofer: https://www.amazon.ca/Rockville-RW10CA-Profile-Powered-Subwoofer/dp/B019Z3R582/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=subwoofer+car&qid=1560738464&s=gateway&sr=8-3 (looks like it just sold out) https://www.crutchfield.com/p_777B8P/Sound-Ordnance-B-8P.html   Will appreciate any help. Thanks!
    • I still have a couple 2005 RE XXX's and the original xbl^2 XXX 6.5's around here somewhere. Ah the good old days...
    • In a 4th order bandpass, all the output comes from the ports, so the direction the driver faces is irrelevant.
