    Adire Audio back in business

    Hi @Tidbit96 we just as excited to be back as you are for us to be back! While Dan is not the current owner or involved in the day to day operations. He is very active in consulting on the design and recreation of all the Adire drivers!

    Adire Audio back in business

    Hi @Tirefryr The Brahma is hand assembled here in California. Thanks for pointing that out, I will update the description. Dan still has the patent, when we acquired Adire we acquired the ability to produce XBL^2 drivers.

    Adire Audio back in business

    I pinged the owner so he may come into this thread and answer some questions for you guys.
  6. Lol, thanks for the reply man, I was under the same assumption as that myself but surely you know how the YouTube comment section is, its over run w/ rocket scientists & ppl w/ MULTIPLE engineering degrees just cruising the videos dying to tell others how smart they are & how dumb the rest of us are... I'm assuming this is where that myth originated since it's where I first heard it, TWICE if you can believe it lol.... Well thanks for the information regarding my issue man! This forums been a Big big help compared to the YouTube comment section lol.

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    Not weird at all. I would like something like that. Life has been rough and I don't have the positive relationship with the W now, so me building one with the FIL feels hollow. He is a great human, I just don't know if it's a good idea considering the turbulence I'm dealing with.

    Help tuning amps

    I was reading old post where i said the speakers and sub had a sort of buffer. I think i worded it wrong making you think thats my problem but in other words the sub can put out a lot of bass 80hz and below obviously but when it comes time for the speakers to play bass it is not as loud and doesnt seem to flow with the system well. The speaker amp is slightly underpowered btw. Overall the entire system is ok but i came to the forum to find out how i can tune my amps to the max which the awnswer is by ear. My only concern is i dont want to clip my system again. Hopefully this cleared up any possible confusion with my wording.

    Help tuning amps

    Front and rear waves of speakers? Kinda confused on what u mean. I know that all speakers are in phase and as of right know they all sound decent but i dont want to risk clipping them by trying to tune them to be louder by ear. Ill give it a shot since its all i can do. Sub driver is sealed as well. If i dont use the punch eq on the sub amp there is hardly no punch/bass ever. What do i do since i should not touch the eq? Does this also apply to the bass knob? Thanks again

    You have an application problem. I'd venture to say you may have a phasing issue as well. Make certain the front and rear waves of the speakers never meet. Make sure the drivers are sealed as best they can be. Do NOT use the EQs on the amplifiers at all. FIx the application issues, and then adjust your amplifiers,
  14. You can not underpower a driver. I don't know where this myth even started. You can cause damage if the small amplifier is driven into clipping though, but to what extent requires some time consuming measurements. Basically the clipping heats the coil. Too much heat and you have a failure point. If the coil can handle the heat and dissipate it, then it's a non-issue. You can only hurt a driver if you take it beyond it's thermal or mechanical limits.
  15. Hey man, Thanks for reply, I was affraid that was the issue.... I have 1 more ? for ya, soon I plan 2buy a matchin Soundqubed Amp to push it & monitor the clipping, til' then I have an extra cheap $100 Walmart bought Power Acoustics Razor Amp... of course it won't produce anywhere near the 1200 RMS that my HDS is rated, but do you know is it harmful to run it on insufficient power like that even if it's for just a short amount of time? I'll be able to get my Soundqubed Amp in 2-3 weeks so it would be just a short time...but some1 once told me runnin insufficient power to a sub can cause issues w/ Subwoofer so if this is true I'll just tough it out w/o bass for next few weeks....thought I'd ask if you had any idea if this is true or not. Thanks again though man for the reply I really appreciate it!

    Help tuning amps

    Ill try doing that again. Just dont want to blow everything like i did the first time. Couple questiones tho. First of all for my rockford amp there is a bass knob, punch eq knob(db), and a gain knob. Do i turn the bass know 100% then gain then punch eq till distortion or how do i go about that? Second question, i have rockford p1650 and 1675 on a kicker 300 4 channel. I was told to only adjust the gain on that amp and not touch the 12db increase however i hardly get any bass at all out of the speakers and it makes a nasty buffer because the sub plays 80hz and below but the door speakers make almost no bass. Should i adjust this or leave it alone. And as for the hu, its an alpine cde-xm145bt and the max volume is 35. Im tuning my amps with the volume at 26 but should i turn this up until it distorts? All help is greatly appreciated!

    I run them in the 4runner doors, stock location. Powered by the SSA IC 150.4. They replaced AA carbons I was running. Direct swap and they sound very close, all I had to do was add a little more mid bass.

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    I know some of you have played with them, but does anyone have any input on the Evils 6.5s in-door? I'm just looking for shit to drop in the place of the factory stuff. I'll need to construct baffles, but that's simple. No deadening or anything. Just using the factory weather seal in place. . . . Well, if it's still there. I guess I should remove the door panels and check.

    Funny side note, when I bought the car, it had an enclosure in the trunk with some old Kappas in it. They were green cones and I remember having a set of those in HS. I think they were the first Kappa subs actually. So I got to talking to the dude and he told me he was MECP certified and this car used to be his demo vehicle. Check the pictures below for the most professional installation.

    Matt, I'm no beast. It you can unplug some wires and remove bolts, you can easily swap an engine. The chassis were nearly all the same in the Mustangs from 1979-2004. I call them the modern day Beetle. There's nothing to them really. Very simple and crude actually, but fun to beat the snot out of and that's what I plan on doing. I got the trans separated and cleaned today. Took off everything else I need to swap over and when removing the oil pan, I found pieces of the timing chain guides which is what I thought was the problem. I'll know more once I teardown, but I don't plan on doing that until this thing is up and running.

    I tell you what, you got me thinking with the ceramic now. Different product, but hydrophobic, so. . . I picked up some of that Rustoleum Never Wet at the dollar store. I'm going to coat my engine bay and the engine itself. Hopefully it will hold up well. Hard to resist for only $1.

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    Every job I do is time spent with my FIL. Doing this is such a release and trip down memory lane for me. I know it sounds weird, but that helps me keep things in perspective.
