    I will just "valet mode" it. He won't mess with the gains. It is always a good idea to have 8 or so thousand watts in reserve.

    It is in a ford edge cargo area. I haven't confirmed the impedance rise, but I have heard that the level 6 in recommended (small) box volume has a lot of rise. I am counting on some to keep me above 1 ohm when it is wired at 0.7. I have also heard the Brazilian amps don't like impedance below rated.

    It does more than 5k. I dont use two 150 amp fuses and that does not limit the amp to 3k anyway. I also didn't say it wasn't "booming". It does 152+ sealed at the dash. I just believe it still has more to give. My question was about a single 18 that can handle 12k daily. There are vids on youtube of single level 6 18's on 9k and 20k. I was looking for other suggestions, not comments questioning my equipment or installation skills.

    My son is currently running a DC level 6 18 on a Hertz HP6001. It was previously in a dc3.5k which was not nearly enough amp for the sub. The HP6001 was a huge improvement, but I still think the sub can handle more. I ordered him a Soundigital sd12kd yesterday. I'm not sure how the sub will handle 12k. Is there any single sub that can?
  8. I have one that randomly let out the magic smoke a couple years ago. It was installed in my son's Bronco that was parked a few months. I went out and started the truck and the smoke went rolling. I opened it up and couldn't see anything burned up. I just took it down out of a closet and tested it in the garage. No power or protect lights, just an awful smell. I don't have any use for it or I would send it off for repair. What's it worth?

    Regardless, I've already purchased the sub. I will build the box as big as possible for the space I have and see what comes of it. I have a feeling it will do well in the space I have.

    the 6 net at 34 with 87 or the two 6" flared?

    If I use flared ports instead of a slot, I would gain a small amount of airspace. Would two 6" ports be good?

    Now that it isn't raining, I was able to go out and remeasure. I now have 36x19x23. 6 net tuned to 34 with 87 inches of port
