i need help anyones opinion and advice would be greatly apreciated.....

Recommended Posts

Ok, I have a single cab 2006 Silverado. Ive got a custom box built for a speaker that is 6 1/4" mounting depth and 12". The amp i have is a Kenwood 1200watt class D i bought from Electronic express. The sub i have wich i have been buying is a Kicker 12" CVR rated at 800watts. I also have a Power accoustik cross over with remote bass knob, my head unit is an alpine cd player not really old but doesnt have ipod hookups or anything like that. Ok, My problem is that the sub was working fine and then all the sudden it would like cut in and out if i tapped the box it would kinda work, if i pressed on the rca cables going into the x over it would work also. Now 2 days ago coming home from work it completely quit playing thru my sub, checked all my fuses and wiring, i have power at the amp and at the x over but nothing coming from the sub. the sub is an older model cvr with the aluminized plating on the cone n speaker itself, the new cvr is black wich i had but completely blew on me this older cvr blew a voicecoil like a month or so back, but i just wired it to the good side that wasnt blown and cut the amp way down, it worked. but now ive got this problem. Has anyone ran into this before???? and If i may ask what 12" sub would yall suggest for my application. I really been swayin towards a focal or like a round solobaric 12. Thanks Steve

I'm no expert, but I'd assume playing it with a blown coil on the 1 good coil blew the good one too eventually, I'd say you need a new woofer.

^^^agree... I am also under the impression that box is not big enough to house a high power sub like that, then again we dont have dimensions so I cant say for sure. second, it is never a good idea to hook up only one coil in a DVC.... can you give us the box dimensions, it will greatly help in picking a new sub

      connecting kenwood kdc-mp245
      have to hardwire into car, no harness
      have the speaker and ground connections figured out.
      I need to know which connection goes where: connect the (Battery/YELLOW) wire and (Ignition/RED) wire INTO either the (RED/YELLOW Main stereo supply/radio switched 12v+) or the (WHITE/GREEN Constant power 12v+).

      So I just got a jl audio 12w6v2 sub for my truck and I am having trouble deciding on the right amp. I've been looking at 3 main options but I am open for any suggestions.
       
      Option 1: PIONEER GM-D8400M
      PIONEER GM-D8400M 1200 WATT MONO CAR AMPLIFIER AMP - eBay (item 390221734181 end time Aug-02-10 06:55:53 PDT)
       
      Option 2: KICKER 08 ZX750.1 750W
      KICKER 08 ZX750.1 750W CLASS D AMP MONOBLOCK AMPLIFIER: eBay Motors (item 400132733992 end time Jul-29-10 20:54:35 PDT)
       
      Option 3: JL 500/1
      500/1 JL AUDIO 1 CH SUB AMP MONO 500 WATT AMPLIFIER NEW - eBay (item 120596922041 end time Aug-15-10 17:50:58 PDT)
       
      I would be buying the 500/1 used because its out of my price range so what do you think?

      Recently I bought a pair of Polk Audio DXI 460P Speakers for my doors and a pair of Kenwood KFC-6993PS speakers for my back. The door speakers can handle 50 Watts RMS and the back speakers can handle 120 Watts RMS. I am looking for an Amplifier to power them.
       
      I have come up with a few different Amps that I am considering.
       
      1. (My first choice) An MB Quart Discus amp that is going for 83.47 on Amazon.
      Amazon.com: MB Quart Discus DSC450 200 Watt A/B Class 4-Channel…
      I have heard MB Quart makes good Amplifiers and this seems to suit my needs, but I have also heard some bad things about Mb Quart as well.
       
      2. A Refurbished Rockford Fosgate R300-4 that is going for 114.95. It can produce 50 watts RMS to four channels at 4 ohms.
      Amazon.com: Rockford Fosgate Prime R300-4 300 Watt Multi Channel Amplifier: Electronics
       
      3. A Kicker 08ZX200.4 amp for 99.99 with free shipping on Crutchfield. It can only produce 35 watts RMS.
      Kicker 08ZX200.4 4-channel car amplifier — 35 watts RMS x 4 at Crutchfield.com
       
      4. (My absolute last choice due to price.) An Alpine MRP-F300. It can do 50 watts to all four channels but will also cost me the most money.
      Amazon.com: Alpine MRP-F300 - Amplifier - V-Power - 4-channel: Automotive
       
      I am almost broke from this audio adventure and the Amp is the last thing I am buying for now. Out of those can you please tell me which is the best and worth the money?
