    I am working to expand our amplifier offerings, while staying high quality, somewhat unique, and affordable. First up looks like a class-A/B 6 channel. No crossover network, individual gains, 150watts x 6, will keep footprint as small as possible for the design, similar appearance to the current models. Feeling out interest as it will effect the total amps I put into production. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ As a side note, I am considering a 2-channel of the same line, but the demand for 2 channels right now are so low. Would not really want to build them if they are going to sit for a while. Just curious on any input before I get production going.

    Class A/B 150 x6. Sounds like a very adequate amplifier for an 8”,4”, and tweet active setup !!! 2 channels, I know what you mean. Guess I’m the only old schooler that loves them ... Lol 4 channels seem to be good on the market, wish I could give yours a demo.

    Well, it's been a while but I thought I'd give a final update. I decided to just make the fronts sound as best they can. Using tones, I set the crossover to as low as I could go before they started losing sound. That turned out to be around 60, when I went lower, they just didn't play it. Then I adjusted the sub amp to the same point tones. I wonder if time has anything to do with this, do speakers wear in? It sounds better now than ever. Drums from the front punch, loud, the bass is perfect and the high end is crisp and clear. My system does not have much power, but the sound quality is what I wanted, and have. My head unit blew up, I think that cheap Dual amp for the subs did it. It was making popping noises for the last year. Now I'm just using the KAC-8405 for the fronts and subs, and I swear it sounds better. I replaced the KDC-X397 with a KDC-X302, this one plays .flac so no more .mp3's, no more lossy music. I really want to thank everyone here, all the advice helped me to achieve my goal, quality sound.

    Has been an eargasmic week! Running these in a 2.5 config, with both woof's playing to 50hz and the bottom guy playing up to 400hz. The mid being sealed. Got lucky I think with this combo, with phase tracking etc. ONly had to match the levels and set the x-overs. Still have yet to need any eq'ing, even after plowing through the same half a dozen cd's I've been tuning with for the last year! lol

    So I see theres a subwoofer that comes in a 4 ohm and a 2 ohm version. I believe a 2 ohm version would be easier to run and most D class amps are compatible with lower ohm rated subwoofers? So is the only reason between the versions, based on which amplifier you have? Just trying to understand this. Thanks! Also, yes I did buy an Acura TLX 2017 tech. With the ELS speaker system. It sounds pretty good but is lacking in quality bass. It has an 8 in subwoofer which sound distorted and horrible. I'll first start by getting a decent subwoofer and then speakers later. Edit: also what SSA sub would be comparable to the JL 12w6 and one comparable to the JLw3? I'm pretty sure that JL has good subwoofers with SQ but they are expensive due to the brand name etc... Looking for 12 inch subwoofer that leans towards SQ but still decent loud. thanks The Icon 12" 1250W seems within my price range. except the RMS rating seems a bit much? So if I don't want to run an amp with more than 600 RMS rating, would that mean it won't sound as great?

    might as well make an 8ch instead. with 8 ch you can do a 3-way with sub or a 3-way with high power to midbass or 2 way with 2 subs or 2 way front and rear. more options

    JL products are not expensive because they're a name brand, they are expensive because they are a premium manufacturer. All of their products are great and in demand and demand drives pricing. Let's throw the SQ term out the window in regards to subwoofers, it's a fallacy. While certain drivers excel better in certain areas, most subwoofers are going to sound the same. You can spend $100 and it can sound just like another $500 driver that is a "sound quality" driver, AND they can both easily get loud. You're covering a small range in the spectrum here. Just focus on picking a quality driver that will work for your application. Narrow down your driver and how you're going to apply it, then pick an amp.

    I think that year Wrangler is a single DIN. If so, I recommend this Pioneer. I am running two of them myself and love them. The Pioneer app makes phone integration very fluid. https://www.crutchfield.com/p_130DS5120B/Pioneer-DEH-S5120BT.html

    (2) D4 B-Stock/Blem Brahma 12's $375 plus shipping each, would prefer to sell both as a pair. They are in perfect working condition and have never been mounted. One has a scratched motor and one has some glue on the surround. https://imgur.com/a/xpqn6bm

    No offence dude. But have you tried any online calculators? http://www.mh-audio.nl/Bandpass.asp http://www.carstereo.com/help/Articles.cfm?id=32 THose where just the first two that popped up on google... with the search term "sixth-order bandpass subwoofer enclosure design calculator" I'm definitely one of those guys that when others say "why?", I say why not!" So I'm all for you giving it a crack. I've never done a 6th order, but have played with 4th's. Was hard not to if you where around in the 90's. lol
