    Wiring Questions for Audison 5.1k

    Got my wire yesterday and it is definitely huge, probably not going to fit in the amplifier. I wish I had bought the non-oversized welding wire now but I wanted to just get everything from one place... So much for that. I also didn't think about what I was going to use to crimp the ring terminals on the cables so now I need to get something to do that, it looks like the hydraulic crimper or hammer crimper are the most popular options.

    Wiring Questions for Audison 5.1k

    I saw those and didn't figure there was much difference but I kinda thought it was a little bit of a safety issue to have the positive hanging out in the opening where if something bumped it that it would be short to ground. Honestly, the 1/0 will probably fit depending on how oversized Knu's 1/0 is so I'm hoping I don't need to do anything to it. There was a good bit of room in the terminal around the 4 gauge Monster brand cable that I already had in the car.

    Wiring Questions for Audison 5.1k

    It's a 2016 Chevy SS. The generator is in the front. The factory cable from the front to back is quite large, I'm not sure what gauge exactly but it looks larger than 1/0. I didn't get a reply notification to this thread so I already ordered some KnuKonceptz 1/0 guage wire last night. I figured if it won't fit in the amplifier then I will just shave off some strands since there is almost nothing out there for 2 gauge and the price was about the same and then there is other stuff widely available also like the fuse holder and ring terminals. I plan on running redundant wires from the generator to positive junction under the hood, engine block to chassis, and battery to chassis using the 4 gauge I already have to further boost the electrical a bit.
  4. I just bought an Audison 5.1k and I have two questions about the wiring. The owners manual says it can take 2 gauge cables but 2 gauge isn't very popular, it's either 0/1 or 4. Since my battery is in the trunk and my cables might be 5 ft. long at the most, the chart Crutchfield has on their web site says I can use 4 gauge. Does that seem reasonable since it's such a short run? I have a bunch of Monster Cable 4 gauge already so that would be great if I didn't have to buy any more cable. My other question is that this amplifier has a provision for a capacitor. The owners manual (unless I missed it) doesn't say that it is required. I was always under the impression that if a capacitor is needed then the electrical system of the vehicle isn't up to the task. I haven't noticed any issues with my current amplifier (DD D5.1000). Should I be ok without it? Thanks.

    5 Channel or Seperates?

    I figured as much, I see a lot of people do that and always thought about airflow. I currently have it mounted upside down under the package tray. I guess the 5 channel might be worth the little extra money so I can hopefully leave it in that location. That would make the rewiring somewhat easier as well.

    5 Channel or Seperates?

    Luckily the battery is in the trunk so that helps significantly. The Audison 5.1k looks nice but I'm worried that the 75 watts for the tweeters may not be enough since the MD102's are 8 ohms and the mids will get the full 140 watts since they're 4 ohms. I could probably save $100-$150 keeping the Zapco I have and getting a monoblock for the subwoofer but the rewiring is the only thing stopping me because it'll be a PITA and I'll probably have to relocate the amps to the spare tire well (will they get to hot in there??).

    SSA Icon 12" vs. Fi SSD 12"

    I’m still deciding on if I’m taking the amp out of my car to use in my truck but either way I was going to buy the dual 2 ohm to run at 1 ohm. The amp I have now would give it 1000 watts so hopefully whatever I do will keep it near there.

    5 Channel or Seperates?

    This requires some back story but I'll try to keep it short. I just bought a truck and I've decided I want to upgrade the sound in it also but I can't spend a huge amount of money. My car currently has an Arc Audio PS8 DSP, Digital Designs D5.1000 amplifier, Dynaudio System 222 front components, and a PSI Bass-Line 10" sub tuned to 30Hz. I've been planning on going up to a 12" sub so I'm going to use the 10" from my car in the truck since I already have it and the box is already built. I thought I was going to bi-amp front components and run rear door speakers in the truck so I bought a Zapco ST-6X SQ and then realized I would need much more expensive speakers to handle the power and then I decided I didn't want to give up the space to run two amplifiers. I ended up buying a set of HAT Unity components. Then I thought about using the Zapco in my car even though I don't need six channels and adding a second amplifier for the subwoofer and using the D5.1000 in truck but the thought of redoing the wiring in my car makes me cringe. The D5.1000 will fit in place of the factory amplifier under the center console in the truck but it is discontinued now which really sucks as I'm not finding anything else that makes the same power that's the same size. They offer a D5.1500 now but that's definitely more than the truck needs so that leads me back to changing the car to use that amp in my truck! This brings me to my actual question. Is there any benefit to using separate amplifiers over a 5 channel? If I stay 5 channel in the car there's a possibility of the rewiring being minimal if I can still get a physically larger amplifier mounted in the same location but I already have the Zapco which is Class A/B which should be an improvement over the Class D. I could stay class D and buy the new DD D5.1500 for my car and sell the Zapco. I could sell the Zapco and buy a different 5 channel like a used Audison A/V 5.1k or Phoenix Gold Elite.5 both seem like they'd fit the bill. Or I could keep the Zapco and buy a monoblock amplifier to go with it to run the sub. I think options A and C would be the cheapest but probably not by a huge amount of money if I'm buying used stuff. Any thoughts on this? Hopefully this isn't just rambling babble. I think it at least somewhat makes sense.

    SSA Icon 12" vs. Fi SSD 12"

    I'm pretty sure I'm set on getting the Icon but I still want to make sure that I'm using WinISD correctly so I can get the box design right.

    SSA Icon 12" vs. Fi SSD 12"

    I want a good musical sub that can get loud. The PSI 10" I have now is not quite enough on certain songs.

    Ok, so that's what that means. Maybe @denim can answer that question?

    What are they supposed to be? I figured it was wrong but that’s what was on SSA’s and Fi’s web sites.
