I have read in several places that they will do over 300x2@2 ohms bridged. They have dual built-in cooling fans and a pretty small footprint. The end cover screws are getting stripped but are still usable, and there is a small bit of corrosion on the bottom corner of the frame as seen in photos. Nothing to be concerned about IMO. $100 shipped CONUS.

  5. Hello, I would like to know how to connect a crossover to the amplifier. there are 2 crossovers that have 2 way and 3 way they have in+ and in- and for tweeters, sub and medium. thanks regards
  6. I am confused on how you tune an amp and line out converter at the same time. I have an LP7-2 LOC, and R1100M Amp and they both have gain knobs on it. I understand that for each, if tuning by ear, you need to put your radio at 3/4ths volume, play a 40hz test tone, and then turn the gain knobs up until the subwoofer starts audibly distorting, but how do you do it both? The only thing I can think of is to just leave the LOC at 100% gain and then turn the amp up until it starts to distort and then leave it right before it distorts, but is that really the right way?

    New subs and amp (Nemisis)

    Hello, Im looking at buying 2 Nemesis Audio 12s both rated at 1500 watts rms. Subs powered by the Nemesis Audio 3000W Amp. Does anyone have any experience with these subs and the amp? Is it actually 3000w max rms, or is that a fake number to draw attention. Thanks
  8. I have a fusion fp-402 amp connected to two sony xplod subs , there hasnt been a problem with it since i connected them at home about 1,5 years ago , just last night i turned them up and they were cutting out , when the volume is turned up the protection light starts flickering when the bass hits , the amp is also powered by a 620w pc powersupply

    Amplifier -- Sub -- PSU -- Speakers

    Hi, do you connect the amplifier to the 2 jacks (RED-WHITE) behind the radio and the sub do you connect it to the amplifier? having a 250w psu is enough for sub amplifier and a 2x 60w speakers? car radio aiwa 40Wx4 Thanks Regards
  10. I have purchased a sub, amp and complete wiring package to install in my caddy (14 plate) but can’t find a way through the bulkhead for the power cable from the battery. All grommets seem un-accessible without removing things. Just wondering if someone has already installed one and managed to get a cable through.
  11. Hi, this is my first post! Any help would be much appreciated. Now I am looking at getting 2 subwoofers and these are Pioneer TS-W311D4 (12" Champion Series DVC 4 ohm). These subs perform at 800 watt rms combined (400 watt rms each) and I'm going to wire the DVC in parallel and in parallel with the amplifier to make a total 1 ohm load. Now I have 2 amplifiers in mind and these are the Pioneer GM-D9601 or the Pioneer GM-D8601 and these of course are 1 ohm stable. So the GM-D9601 performs 1200 watt rms at 1 ohm and the GM-D8601 performs at 800 watt rms at 1 ohm (which would be a perfect match). So my question is, is it a good idea to buy the GM-D9601 and have more "headroom" or just match the rms ratings and get the GM-D8601? And would I be right in thinking that the GM-D9601 will run cooler as it won't be as stressed as the GM-D8601? Thank you :)
  12. Hello folks! I'm currently putting together a modest SQ build and have run into a bit of a snag with subwoofer, enclosure, and amplifier selection and would greatly appreciate some advice on the matter. The snag is my lack of familiarity with the current "good brands" and the strange lack of shops willing to demo SQ subwoofers or their "high end" subwoofers. While the overall goal is excellent sound quality, I am an oldschool basshead at heart and still want exceptional levels of loud when the mood strikes me. I have, over a few decades, owned various sizes of subwoofers and enclosures and have found that they all have their own merrits however, my favorite subs/enclosure were 2 Soundstream SS10R's (circa mid nineties) sealed with a 600w monoblock supplying the juice. I would love to have something that either matches the level of output and accuracy of that set up or exceeds it, in terms of sonic transparency, as well as the ability to compliment my front stage set up and rattle some door parts loose. I have access to Arc Audio, Hertz, Focal, FI, DD, DA, JL, Audio Frog, Sun Down, and Fosgate. I would prefer to stay within a budget of $1500 for sub(s) and amplifier. The environment is a 2018 Mustang GT, and I have, roughly 3 cubic feet to use for enclosure space. The build, so far, is as follows: •Hertz Mille pro 163.3 three way front stage fully active. •Arc Audio XDi 1200.6 •Arc Audio PS8 DSP Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  13. SPEAKER: MB Quart QS216 (1-pair) AMP: ? CAPACITOR: ? Looking for amp to match MB Quart speakers rated at 80/170w. Power rating is 4 ohms. I only prefer to shop at sonicelectronix. I found a couple 2channel-ClassAB amps that have an rms ranging from 100-150w. Are there any benefits in going above RMS but still way below the max wattage output? I want to emphasize keeping the gain below 50% as I had a terrible experience a couple years ago and i'm back at it finally! Then, once I have my amp I want to be able to support it with a capacitor. So let's just assume my amp is 1000w should I double the farad from 1 to 2 at this point or triple it? The following are amps based on an arbitrary factor where I subtracted the max wattage and rms then side viewing it with price. I don't wanna be robbed or regretting a purchase for a higher priced one (sorted by descending order by price): Rockford Fosgate Punch P500X2 Price: $270 Watt Rms: 150w Watt Max: 500w EARTHQUAKE SOUND PH800W/2 (My initial choice, any reason not to get this?) Price: $140 Watt Rms: 125w Watt Max: 800w Soundstream ST2.1000D Price: $110 Watt Rms: 140w Watt Max: 1000w Pioneer GM-A5702 Price: $115 Watt Rms: 150w Watt Max: 1000w Precision Power PPI ICE800.2 (This looks too good to be true) Price: $80 Watt Rms: 130w Watt Max: 800w Hifonics ZXX-500.2 Price: $80 Watt Rms: 125w Watt Max: 500w Planet Audio AC600.2 (Ok,....what's the catch?)

  14. Good evening, I'd like to upgrade my stereo in a 2011 Toyota Land cruiser Prado 150. I have a factory audio system with the amplifier under the passenger seat. The only requirements are 2xUSB, Apple carplay and the ability to connect a reversing camera. The Pioneer SPH-Da120 looks as though it would be suitable. Could anyone tell me if this will connect easily to the factory speakers on my Prado. I would like all the speakers to work and be connected correctly, but I'm not at all familiar with these things. So if anyone has done this on their Prado or has any advice it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  15. So I'm intrested in two Soundstream T5.122 Tarantula T5 Series 2,000 Watt 12″ Subwoofers each is rated at 1,000 RMS. I used the amplifier slection tool on https://www.sonicelectronix.com/Matching-Subwoofers-Amps/2-63-94454?filter_f_op_123=232 . I know I want a class D mono amplifier and I want each speaker to have 1,000 or more RMS but no more than 1,500. I'm planning on adding this to my 2004 Ford F150 XLT Extended Cab. The vehicle has a OEM 110A alternator and a regular 12V battery. I need some help if whether or not I have an adequate amount of power to run the whole system.
  16. So I recently purchased 4 Polk Audio DB652's for my 2012 Subaru Impreza (with a stock in-dash stereo). I like them but I wanted more out of them so I purchased a Pioneer D9605 5 channel amp. I chose this amp because I wanted to see more output from my current 4 door speakers and a sub woofer that I am planning on getting (Rockford Fosgate P3D4 12"). I feel like I got my amp without being well informed on other factors and was wondering what some great car enthusiast think of my purchases and car audio goals. Ask any questions that I would need to further clarify to help y'all help me! Also, are the Polk door speakers I got that great? All help and recommendations are very much appreciated!!! P.s. I don't have a large knowledge of car audio if it isn't yet obvious.
  17. I am currently driving a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix. I drove my car for about two hours today with no problems whatsoever. Once I got in the car to head out for a quick errand tonight, I found that all four of my speakers were not working, but my subwoofer was hitting. I have a 10 inch Diamond D3 in the trunk. I am unsure if the speakers are aftermarket or stock, but I do know I had a Pioneer FX-X730BS installed about half a year ago. All of the features of my head unit still work, I can alter sound settings, change the input from radio to bluetooth to USB, and I am sure all four speakers are simply not working because when I turn off the subwoofer through my head unit, the there is not a peep from the system. I do know when I started the car, I heard a subtle pop from the speakers. I tried restarting the car, I tried altering settings, I did a reset on the head unit as well. I am thinking this is an amp or fuse issue, but I have not been able to find a factory amplifier in this car online. This is not the Monsoon stereo system that come in some Grand Prix's. Any advice on where to start outside of checking my fusebox in the morning would be greatly appreciated. I am also not very hands on in terms of audio systems, so as detailed as possible would be best as electrical work tends to be my weak subject. Thanks!

    Subwoofer Hits way harder when idiling

    Hello Everybody! I am having problems with my Subwoofer not hitting real hard when my car is moving. The subwoofer hits, however, it is really light. Without adjusting the volume, I can come to a complete stop at a stoplight, and the subwoofer starts hitting super hard, shaking the entire car. I have an Alpine UTE-52BT Deck, a Rockford Fosgate R500X1D Amp, and a JL Audio 10W0v3-4 Subwoofer. Does anybody know why the subwoofer hits way harder when idling vs barley hitting when moving and a possible solution to fix this issue? Thanks in advance!

    Detailed Alpine X-A70F Specifications

    Hi. I'm looking to find out some very detailed specs on the Alpine X-A70F amplifier. What I'm looking to find out is roughly what the true power output is per channel at 4 ohms (birth sheet gives highest power output at lowest ohms), what its true efficiency is, and its maximum current draw for a 4 ohm load. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Subwoofer AMP power supply help

    Hello, I am new to this forum anyway I’m new to the whole audio systems and stuff but I’ve been doing a lot of homework over it and I still have a question. So I know you can take a computer power supply rated at 12 volts and let’s say 66 amps for 800 watts. Now I already have a 1200 watt peak power amp. I know it will be under powering this amp a lot but that’s okay because the subs are rated at 250 rms 800 peak. But let’s say I get a power supply that is 12 volts 200 amps. That’s 2400 watts of power into a 1200 watt amp. Is that okay to do? Because the way I see it is the amplifier will not pull over 1200 watts of energy or else it would hurt itself and it is smarter than that. Reason for asking is I have a 12 volt 200 amp supply from a huge server computer. And I know car batteries and alternators put out around that. So basically 12 volts 200 amps input into 1200 watt amp will not hurt the amp because it can’t draw more than 1200 watts correct? Thanks guys! Can’t wait to get my first system going (also not going into a car using for PC)

    Please help

    Hello All, I have been doing subwoofer work for a while but figuring out proper amplifiers to use always gets me stumped. This time its not something as easy as usual so I came here to beg for help. I purchased a box with two Audiobahn ALUM15Q subwoofers. The specs are: Dual 6 Ohm 3 Ohm or 12 Ohm Operation frequency response 18-500 Hz power handling 1100 watts RMS (200 watts per coil) sensitivity 96.4 dB The 6 ohm voice coil is something I've never worked with and has me thoroughly confused. Anyone that could provide information on the Wattage of amplifier to buy or whether to wire in parallel or series would be greatly appreciated. I'm on a relatively tight budget so I'm ok with a little underpowered but I just don't want to break them. Thank you so much
  22. I’m doing a bit of an upgrade after being out of the Car Audio game for a while and would like some suggestion for a clean 750 watt @1 or 4 ohms RMS sub amp to drive my newly acquired RE SEX10D2 that I got for a good price locally. Right now it’s in the JL pro Box from my old school JL 10W3v2 the surround rotted out on ( I’m going to replace the surround and put it in a custom center console box build in my truck I inherited. I had got a Kenwood KAC-7204 for a good price years to drive the W3 but it’s not keeping up with the the RE sub and I don’t like how hot the amp runs. So for my cobra I’m looking for a better amp that won’t break me. Thanks from a user coming out of retirement, any input is helpful.

    Help choosing 6.5 components

    Hi I have a 2003 avalon with the jbl sound system. I am an avid MB Quart fan (old school stuff) am looking for great tweets but mostly good midbass. Everything is factory and I want to add ipod hookup and bluetooth. I have a great powered eclipse single din head unit as well as an audiobahn 8volt line driver eq. I am looking to power with either an old school rf or an ppi art series. I am unfamiliar with some of the new brands as far as amps and speakers so I was wondering what new amps would you recommend if I dont go old school. Looking at skar audio, soundqubed, nvx etc for amps. Also looking at focal, hertz, cdt audio, sundown audio, infinity, morel for components. I plan on adding rear fill co ax in the back and one 10sub in a sealed enclosure love nice tight bass. Also looking to maybe replace the factory sub with something else in addition to the 10 in box?? Have no clue what to get but I want to spend no more than $300 on 6.5 components and $300 max on an amp and 150 on the sub and box.
