  1. i couldn't tell you what happened. i'm just wondering if it would be worth getting fixed and who would be a good person to send it to. if its going to cost me $200, i'll just stash it away and buy something new. its possible that it was mounted on a box, hot swapped crossover or anything really. i never saw it powering a sub. buddy got out of car audio and into performance cars and gave me a bunch of his old stuff.

  2. So i have an old school kicker ZR1000 2 channel "cheater amp". My buddy gave it to me to use and see if i could fix it. the only stipulation is i can never sell it, if i i get rid of it, it must go to another audio guy who would value it.

    Anyways, i hooked it up about a week ago and have no output. it has power, no protect light and the RCAs are good. i can turn the gain every which way i want but get no ouput. Multi meter reads 0 across the board on the outputs. i opened it up and see no visible damage. He last used it in 2007 and has had it stored in his house since. I'm just wondering if it would be worth getting it looked at and repaired, and if so, what would be too much to spend on repairing it?

    I don't need to use it, it'd just be nice to have since it is a beefy 2 channel and capable of a good amount of power for a substage. I have 3 crossover boards for it and my ms8 to fine tune everything on it. I see them going for about 2-250 everywhere.

    i also have a matching zr360 that has a cooked power supply. i'd probably get both fixed and use them to run my front stage active off the ms8 and get a nice mono for my subs. no idea on what the front stage is yet.

    any help would be awesome guys. sorry for the scatter brain post.

  3. see, i had dual agms in mine for a month and for the first two weeks, i was sitting where you are also. then the car started doing the 12.6 thing again while i was on the freeway...

    trunk looks good as hell. love the dual port and oem look with the battery

  4. externally regulated alt.

    I emailed everyone when i got my car back in january and was told "we do not make one for your car" if when i asked about a custom made.

    Singer, will be the one making it now though. i just don't see the point in paying for a new alt when i don't need more than the stock 130 if it were to work right.

    nice false floor and carpet job. really liking the build

  5. 2012 Cruze owner here... how are you planning on overcoming the charging system on these cars? from the factory they have the voltage regulated to get the best mileage possible which means during the day if you're driving, you'll only see about 12.6v

    box looks sexy though, tuned in

  6. when you have 4 different boxes for one sub

    when your girlfriend wakes you up at 3am because you're talking about 0 gauge in your sleep

    when you work at a battery store to get agms on the cheap

    when cops stop by your house to see what a good system sounds like rather than the prefabs everyone else has (true story)

    When your girlfriend thinks something is wrong, there is no porn on your computer, only car audio

    Stop eating popcorn, and get to work!

    He's waiting on me to have some free time from work and school before going ham on the truck.

    i'm waiting to be blown away by your build man. haha, can't wait

  8. the battery is a 12 volt battery but your alternator puts out about 14.4v. this means, simple terms, the battery will be 14.4v and the amp will see 14.4v when the car is running. if you turn the car off and run the system, you'll see 12v and not see the rms your amp is rated for at 14.4.

    you'll be fine for a basic system

  9. so, i've been creeping on your install since day one. i really envy you for the truck. i've always loved the xtremes and have had my eye on a few locally just to build a nice daily truck setup like what you have. Great work man, i can't wait to see what else you do
