    Audiobahn aw 1005 - who knows about it?

    Thanks a lot! Great info. This is the sort of answer I hoped or imagined I might possibly get. Thanks! This might help me with finding designs for a box.

    I found it. Too embarrassed to say where. I'm just lucky it wasn't a snake.

    No, that's not it. But I do appreciate the link. I'll be sure to try to use the advice contained, therein.

    Thanks! I saw a post/thread about box designs on here, somewhere...yes, I did use the search button but can't seem to find that thread anywhere. Maybe I'm just distracted, being at work, but I feel like Stevie Wonder - I can't see sh**!

    Trigger pulled. Excited to get this ball rolling - it's been a long time. Now to start the research about choosing/designing/building the box. I have a box that the pair subs were in (vented) and they romped...but dropping to a single sub, I am going to have to brush up on my math to figure out the best design - then get my Bob Villa on!

    exactly what I found - I think I'm going to pull that trigger today Thanks for the input and guidance, fellas! Now it's time to get cracking on this box situation...

    Thanks, guys! I stayed up WAY too late last night watching these videos, searching for videos of amps I am considering. I'll take a closer look at that Stadium 1000, since it replaced the "sister sub" of the Infinity I'm strongly leaning toward right now. I understand that they are discontinuing the Infinity K1000 - is that right? As always, I appreciate the ideas and questions and answers!

    I'll have to do some research on adding a second battery, it looks like... Thanks for the insight! I saw a list of "good" and "bad" brands on here, somewhere...but subsequent searches haven't turned it back up. I've been out of "the game" for about 20 years (when I knew what was quality and what was crap), so forgive my ignorance. That's why I'm looking to you guys for guidance. Thanks, again.

    Thanks. What about adding a separate Optima Yellow Top? Will I also need a capacitor? Like I said, I'm not looking to blow the windows out (been there) but I don't want to hurt any equipment or my vehicles. Upgrading the alternator on the Audi isn't really a viable option (it's a MAJOR pain in the ass! And expensive!) The 'Burban is simple as pie, though.

    Great questions - thanks. I don't want to spend a ton, so I really want to stay under $200 (as far as possible) - but obviously, I don't want trash. None of the vehicles have any upgrades. I'd love to learn some specifics about how to go about this, as well. As far as listening goals go, I have outgrown the BIG BASS phase (meaning I've gotten old) but I would love to have some bass to augment the (basically) stock Bose systems. There are times I like to listen to my music loud, though, and I'd like to be able to comfortably outperform my comfortable listening levels. I listen to damn near everything besides country. Old school hip hop and R&B, mostly - but I also enjoy some sessions of classic rock. I have better nunchuck and bo-staff skills than woodworking skills. But I'm not completely helpless on a saw. Thanks again for the questions and answers.

    To the best of my knowledge, they are dual 4 ohm Thanks

    MATCH AMP TO SUB

    Interesting...I'll definitely keep it in mind. Thanks
  13. Looking for advice about some options for an amp to run the sub (or subs) I have. First off, I have a set of old (at least 15 years old but in excellent shape) Audiobahn AW1005 subs (900watt RMS each) - not going to buy new subs, just work with me on these, please... I think I've decided to break up the pair and put one of each in two different vehicles (2001 Audi A6 Avant and either a 2003 Suburban or 1993 Honda Accord). I have done a bit of looking around and I have found a few amps that look like they'd fit the bill and just wanted your opinions and input - maybe even some recommendations, if you have them: Kenwood KAC 9106D (new $299 vs $169 factory refurbished) - 500w RMS x1 @ 4ohms/ 1000w RMS x1 @ 2ohms JBL GTR 1001 ($179 new) - 700w @ 4 ohms/ 1000w @ 2ohms Infinity Kappa K1000 ($199 new) - same as above (700/1000) Also, not sure about the size of box to use or to go vented/ported or sealed. Any input is appreciated.
