    Think 10k and the sq of an old PPI. Really enjoying this amp. Last year I tried SQ 7k. Ampere 9.0 and 7500, sound digital 12k evo. 1700 watt cross fire, taramps hd 15k, audio legion 3500. And a few others. the crescendo C1100.4 has been an ok-good amp, also fixed my old ppi powerclass 450 and it’s still amazing. Been awhile I just thought I’d pop in.

    Think you have a few on the Facebook page. i really need to get around to taking a vid of it playing. I just upgraded to iPhone xs max and I think it has a better camera than my old iPhone 6 did. so far I have enjoyed the evils, maybe I’ll get a 2nd IA80.1 and burp them at more power.

    Hey how’s it going!

    Taramps hd15k seemed to be a work horse. With my rise at close to 4ohms at 44hz wired at 1ohm it did 155.5 db, evo 12k doing same clamped 5k and got 155.1. I likes the remote clip light and never had a problem with amps. sound quality wasn’t the best tho and kick drum notes would carry over to next note. But would play just about everything on the Dj russticals line up. Cheap loud power and it wasn’t to hungry on my electrical system.

    Ended up with 200 foot of 2/0 ofc. dual mechman 320’s with external regulator two ssa evil 18’s seems easy to post pics now.
  6. Always need a fuse if your running a hot off the batt. (Fuse close to batt) Blocks are nice for system upgrades.

    Which is the best amp !

    Both amps 1000 dampening factor I've never seen a rating like that in car audio. Thought the old ppi power class at 500 was among one of the best dampening ratings in car audio.

    Which is the best amp !

    12k evo is rated at 12k at 12.6 volts Not sure who would buy power 8k rated at 14.4 for same price. Thd is good on both amps but .09 evo .015 power 1250 amps fuse rating on evo and think 800 on power 8k

    New h/u or just keep what I currently have?

    I used to update every year One year I didn't like the new hu's and have been running this avh8500xbs or something. It's lasted 2-3 trucks so far as I like to change out rides every 3 years. Have been seeing this network mode that's intriguing.

    Arspl Forget name of town was 3 hour one way drive. Thinking about getting an evo!

    Which is the best amp !

    Seen two evo 12k's clamp 18.8k at comp few weeks back. Just over 160 c piller build 4-hdc4-15.
  16. Also picked up 3 ssa evil 18's new in box. So there is always that option.
  17. I know the math for cubic foot. I'm good on taking out sub displacement and wood to get internal volume. I've just learned how to get two of the port height and width by using cubic foot of box times 17-18 depending on if I overpower them........think i Will a bit. So I need 2.25-2.5 per sub think I'll go with 4.5x17 to get port, maybe 5x17. Port volume. Both subs will be close to .4 cubic displacement. So I've almost got this. My Q is what is the math to get port length? Think I want box tuned at 32hz. I've looked for answer to this for over a week now, and besides a program I can't find anything. Math to take port volume out to get net volume of box should be same as getting box volume. Just add port displacement like I would sub displacement. So if I can ever get the magic formula to get port length I'm good. Sorry if this is kinda turning into a rant........I've been watching YouTube vids...reading everyplace I can think of and I can't find it.
  18. Finally got dual alts in wired up, both new batts in, did frame grounds with bolts. And hooked up my 7k Hell of a change. Does great beating out all 30hz and bit lower but on normal music with a bit higher bass it doesn't do so well. May redo build box and tune 35hz

    Question about Air pressure and Watts

    The old ear spl meter isn't really that great. Now a days spl meters are small and accurate Check for sales at Gp audio or ssa. Increase in 3db is 2x as loud extra 10db is twice the air pressure.

    2 RE AudioXXX12 D2's- 2000WRMS/each

    Boss 4K

    Sorry I got your name wrong. I do watch your vids on YouTube and think you do a great job.

    Boss 4K

    Jump up to 200-230 range and you have 2k scar, audio pipe, cab 1600, ppi black ice 7k and other amps that do power for cheap. Some are power hungry tho. Think soundqubed just came out with a budget line of amp that are priced pretty low also. I'm sure others will chime in. So just don't jump on the boss bandwagon right off the bat, look around at other amps 1st.

    Boss 4K

    Don't think the boss is the amp you want. A member here does test on amps and he might have done this one I think. (Didn't do so hot) Check out Ryan Blankenship I think is his name. He also sales amps he test. Also scar makes an rp1500 that last I looked does rated power and is below $180
  24. If op doesn't want the pc275 I'm interested.
  25. Had a break with an eye infection but I'm doing better and back at it again. After I finish sound mat I'm going to tackle the dual alt set up, my trucks alt's voltage is pc controlled. Anyone found a way around this without throwing an engine code light? Seen a vid while back of Steve mead on YouTube doing a plugin to his alt that fixed voltage and didn't let car's computer control the voltage. Anyone else try this???? Think I'll put the mechman 320 on Starting battery and from starting batt run back to 480. I'll hook the gp 370 straight to the North Star 480 in the back. I need to find a fix for the pcm voltage controller or the mechman will do very little since both alts will end up on the same battery.
