    Sundown SA 12's Sound Weak

    Can you wire the subs to 2 ohms for the pair? Not surprising though....

And yes, you should use the crimping tool. you can also just use orange wire nuts (not recommended). If you do, make sure to use the ones that have the metal inserts.

    Subwoofers not working ugh!

    This... and d2 subs can not be wired to 2 ohms each....only 1 or 4 ohms.....
  4. Having the SS ref amp for the front.....why not use the ref 500 for the sub? Much better amp vs the HFi 1500.... and x2 on ditching the rear speaker idea....just use the factory speakers and fade them down for "fill". Use the ref 4ch to run your front components active and you will have a very nice "entry level, budget" start!

    kicker zr 360 power ?

    The test I seen here says 725.4 watts bridged at 2 ohms.... http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=7&ved=0CF0QFjAG&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.carsound.com%2Freviews%2Famps%2Fzr360.html&ei=ow7bUqCMMa6-sQS0yIGADw&usg=AFQjCNHqhge9WenqDgOTA6OLfScOyuIdWA&bvm=bv.59568121,d.cWc&cad=rja this is from carsound.com....
  6. CFA 1000d was rated @ 1k @ 1 ohm 12.5v..... Hit up the bay and grab you an older Fosgate 200x2/dsm....rated @ 100wpc/400 bridged 4 ohm... They will do over 800 watts rms @ 2 ohms bridged and they are a small-ish amp.
  7. I had an issue with one of my old Crossfire amps that would make the sub sound like it had coil rub at times. It turned out to be the XO adjusting pot/switch was dirty. A shot of contact cleaner took care of that.... So check all the switches and knobs to see if that could be the issue...

    My weekend old school scores

    I'm looking at buying a Crossfire lot from Dave(LA_CRX) here soon maybe. He had an eq/possessor, BNITB CFA142, a 302, 202, 602 and a used 142...all CFA amps.

    I may just take you up on that..

    My weekend old school scores

    Ah...yes.... I have a CFA 30hc that is rated for .5 stereo or 1 ohm bridged. Has the high power/high current fuse positions on the back. In most of my testing, she makes about the same power at 1and 2 ohms stereo and bridged. But yes, she can get warm. The others do not....at least not using them as they are intended. Now the Kicker ZR600.....I cooked breakfast on her this morning...lol

    Say what? These are not smoke stream amps... I have a lot of CFA amps and have had them a long time.....no fires here....lol

    On a side note...the ZR600 makes 821 watts rms @ 4 ohms bridged..... and still has head room to boot! Not to mention the power supply coil is huge!

    I will get a family shot of my Crossfire CFA amps soon. I also have a ZR240, 360 and ZX460 on the way....
  14. Found my Unicorn amp this weekend. Crossfire CFA555 5ch. VERY rare and is nearly the exact same as the Fultron Memphis Belle. 40x4 and 140x1 @ 4ohms/12.5v. The only difference between the 2 is the Crossfire's sub ch is mono and the Fultron is a 6ch rated @ 40x4 and 75x2. The CFA555 is just as under rated as my other CFA amps. I have since toughed up the areas that needed it and she is now a very show worthy amp! Excellend SQ and great output. And then I scored this old school power house. Kicker ZR600. Do not see the 600's often. This one has a plexiglass bottom. She is one big, heavy, class a/b power house beast and did I mention a current hog too? Now I just need the end caps for the 600...

    New Amp in protect

    No....you can connect it to the battery ground. Try bypassing the remote turn on wire. Jump a wire from the + terminal and see if she powers up fine.
