  1. dumb question dudes... Icon d2 on 1000 w rms, can I use some 16 gauge speaker wire for connecting the coils in parallel (12 gauge runs from amp to sub). Or should I get something thicker?
  2. i was running a dayton dta-120 on the tritrix and its working pretty well. my source is a pc so I don't necessarily need a ht receiver for surrounds/center/sub I think. https://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-dta-120-class-t-mini-amplifier-60-wpc--300-3800
  3. anyone do some av receiver shopping recently. I was running a stereo setup with some tritrix but re-purposed the 2 channel amp for another project. Should i get something with 4k support for future proofing? My original plan was to grab something cheap or used. my current setup is a 1080p 55" tv that I dont plan to upgrade anytime soon. Im also thinking about setting up a screen and projector for movies (1080p again, 4k is too expensive).
  4. no moving assistance. I was considering giving them more notice but id rather move on quickly.
  5. i have no intention of staying. If the work was more similar or if the current job had any redeeming factors then I would definitely give them a chance to counter offer.
  6. ya but the benefits are shit. overall compensation is higher.
  7. Going from non-contract back to contract, both hourly. I should be getting hired on in a year or so. So something to work towards. Negotiated a higher pay rate so the financial hit of breaking my lease/moving wont be too bad.
  8. Anyone have advice for quitting a job you started 2 months ago? I was offered my position back at my previous employer so ill be moving back to Illinois this week. It probably would have been better to give them more of a notice but it was decided last week...
  9. Got some fresh carnage pictures of my brother's icon. The Coil actually spins freely on the former. The coil could slide off but the former is flared at the bottom either by design or from smacking the backplate. In the second picture it looks like the coil wasn't centered correctly when I reconed it previously or something happen mechanically while my brother was abusing it (or happen while trying to play it while/after it failed). In my defense it sound fine after I reinstalled it so it probably died from abuse rather then a poor recone job.
  10. You're right about the 4k on a 13inch. Totally unnecessary on my asus zenbook. Probably miss out on some batter life as well because of it.
  11. ya it looks pretty dark to me. I've reconed this sub before but in that case something caused coil rub which I think killed it. olds pics of coil rub. this is another shot of the same coil and it looks fine otherwise
  12. hey guys, does this vc look burnt to you? my brother's icon that was powered by a precision power p1000.1, one VC reads 2ohm while the other isn't reading at all.
  13. auburn hills
  14. Just moved to Michigan for a job. Wish I found something somewhere warmer, haha
  15. what model is it exactly? If its a high quality amp it might be worth repairing but watts are so cheap now days, you could replace it for cheap.
