I have questions about my setup for a 8w7. I like coming across real experiences or general help from anyone.
1.) So, Definitely getting a ported enclosed to Jl Audio Specs. With a 250w JL Audio Amp, or I was truly considering a Jx400/4D. Hard to choose because I don’t know if it will really make a difference using one or the other. I want as much bass as possible for this subwoofer, but I don’t want to over power it.
2.) Is an extra battery necessary for an 8w7?? If so, any suggested brands and/or set ups? I’m open to adding an extra battery because I own a BMW ‘02 330i, its a nice car but not that trust worthy right now. I plan on keeping my stock harmon Kardon setup because they bump as it is!
I have been out of the game for a while, not only that but I’ve never owned a w7 before... so any help is greatly appreciated!
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.
I have just got 2 Kenwood KFC-w3012 subs and am not sure what type of amp to get to push both of them...I do not want to spend a fortune on an amp seeing as I still need a box for them however I do not want some crappy amp that is going to burn up within the first month...any advice will be greatly appreciated thanks ahead of time
