I have 2 Orion H2 12.2 subs that will be powered by an Orion 2500D amp at 1 Ohm (I think). I've been searching high and low for all my options. I am going to do the Big3 upgrade for sure but i was thinking about getting a Kinetik HC1800 battery for a secondary battery in the back and I still have my regular Duralast Battery in the front. I'm going to run 0 gauge throughout my truck (2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee). I have a stock 136 Amp alternator.Thoughts?????

Yes It would be a good idea to do a second battery, I run 2k from single battery and I drop from 15v to 13.2 under load,(If I REEEELY FLOG IT) Lights dim of course. To avoid dimming and to avoid ruining yo carz I would get an 1800 though the 1400 would probably work ok too.

You were better off not mentioning that. On a good note, go sell it and use the money to help fund your battery.

So why not disconnect it/bypass it till it's sold?

I actually placed an ad up here earlier to try to trade it or sell it...I'll take that money and put it towards a new battery...

You'll have better luck on craigslist, especially for that price.

while we're at it - can someone explain to me why exactly caps are bad??

I'm not saying they aren't. I never used one and never will simply based on all the people bashing them, i just don't understand what exactly it does that hurts you. Someting along the lines of "power it stores still comes from sowhere so in reality u're rubbing your...."

They are not bad at all. They simply don't add what the uninformed people claim they add.

But a cap, in no way detracts from the performance, and it most definitely acts as a filter, smoothing out any electrical noise you may have - and this is probably not audible.

 

The whole subject is a clusterfuck on the net, so good luck being pointed to a reliable source, and there is usually a similar reliable source saying the exact opposite.

 

Just read as much as you can on the subject, and make your own conclusion. Haven't read about anyone adding a cap and then reporting noticeable reduction in performance.

Might want to look into a battery isolator if you're going to be running two completely different batteries (duralast wetcell and kinetik agm).

Okay, I'm hearing mixed opinions here...some folks are telling me to keep the Cap and get a second battery! They said that the cap will help when that deep bass demands alot of power! as supposed to pulling all of the energy from the alternator....

      Hi everybody, 
      so I recently purchased 2 10” subs for the trunk of my lancer. They are hooked up to a 1000 watt pioneer amp, at it sounded awesome, but I recently soundproofed the trunk and I took the subs out for it. I was being stupid and I forgot to disconnect the negative power source from the battery when I was hooking everything back up and I blew the fuse on my power chord. I thought it was no big deal and I replaced the fuse and it seemed like everything was normal, but after this my subs were extremely quiet and they also started putting out higher notes. My friend told me that I might have fried my amp, but I checked the fuses and they were fine on the amp, but just to be sure I bought a new amp and hooked it up and nothing changed! Still really quiet. I’m so frustrated guys, I put so much time and work into this and now they don’t work. If anybody has any idea how to help me I would appreciate it so much.

      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?) Price: $60 Watt Rms: 150w Watt Max: 600w

      Haven't been here in a bit, and figured I'd drop a few random shots of some of the latest subs we've been building/re-building here at the shop.
       
      Full pictorials with step-by-step build pics are at our forum, if you want to see them all. I'll just post finished pics in this post.
       
      Don't mean to spam the place up.... just know how we all love to see random subwoofer pron!
       
       
      If you have any questios, please ask. If not, enjoy the pics.
