    Thanks for the reply Aaron. I did notice it was a pretty big amp. I think I will just run the kenwood for now until I upgrade to components and build a nice board for all the amps to sit on.

    Also I must have thrown you off. I don't think the DC looks cool at all. It's a massive black box, probably 3x the size of the kenwood.

    Sorry, I should get better at conveying thoughts. I kind of assumed since the dc audio amp has people making custom parts for it, then it might be more sought after or prestigious than the kenwood. When I spoke about the size, I mean the internals of the amp. The DC has bigger and more caps and a second mosfet, but rated near the same power. Granted they could be lower quality components therefore needing more, just popped into my head. I'm all for running the kenwood, also not opposed to just seeing if it's what I expected or more. The crossover thing is throwing me off though, since the DC has active crossovers. Don't know if it's that big of a difference. I don't even know how to use them. Just wanted to dodge a bullet if one was coming. Didn't know if somebody here had obvious answers that I might be oblivious to.

    I still have the kenwood, still an option to keep it. I just had a little buyer's remorse I guess. Just can't find anybody making a backplate and such like they do a dc 90.4 or why the open case pictures compared to the kenwood look like 2x the amp. Also not sure about active crossovers or if there is much difference between passive or active.

    Hey guys, I'm looking for a good 4 channel to finish out my setup. I have 4 sundown 6.5 coaxials, says 80 rms per speaker. Running the Sundown 2.75 full ranges in the dash, 35 rms. I got a little Infinity 2 channel (primus 6002) to run the dash speakers alone. Going to Y off the front rcas coming from my Kenwood DNX997XR for those. Looking for a good high quality SQish 4 channel for the sundowns. Pulled the trigger on a Kenwood XR401-4 but something inside is telling me not to go with big box brands. Something inside means people at my work. That XR401-4 is pending return now and I'm looking at getting a DC Audio 90.4. Just curious if somebody can explain the differences of some of these entry level competition amps, i.e. skar 125.4, wolfram 125.4, dc audio 90.4. I'm looking for the highest quality entry level stuff. Hoping to upgrade the coaxials to components soon so I'd like to get a great amp the first time around that I could just double up when components come in. Let me know what you think, thanks. P.s. sub setup is a crescendo bc4k and a single DD 9915
  6. Reason I said nightshade is because sundown recommends 2.5 cubes for the 12 and 1.5 for the 10. I figured these speakers would work well in smaller enclosures, could be wrong. I agree more air is ideal to feed the beast, but I was hoping to find something that is designed for what I'm looking to do. I also saw the sp4 recommendations start at 1.8. Granted that's the low end but still. You guys know of some good Facebook groups or something that is more up to date? This place kind of feels like Myspace.
  7. I can make more room available but I was hoping not to. The box could be bigger but it would have to be taller. I could also switch the setup around to taking up the 60% seat section which would equate to like 3.5-4 cubes of room taking up most of the rear section. I can get some measurements if there are folks on here willing to give me box advice. I really wanted to have most of my backseat available while getting the strongest speaker available in there. Here's a link for an example. My rear section is smaller though the truck in the video is a crew cab. I was hoping to keep it more contained if possible like amps mounted behind and under the seat.
  8. Wow this forum is dead AF. 70 views, 3 replies lol, really makes me want to get into SSA audio.
  9. It has a 60/40 seat split in the rear, I took out the 40% section and I'm going to fill that side with a box. Trying to keep it contained to the 40% side so I can keep the 60% seat. I had a 3.6 cube box sitting in the back with a Sundown 15 but I got the bug.
  10. Hello everybody. I'm trying to build a small, powerful setup in my 2016 Silverado doublecab. I want to run 1 woofer. Breaking it in on ~2400 rms, then linking another amp going to 4800 once I finish the electrical. I'd like some clean sounding air movement. Not super into high notes, but I'd like to be able to hit the full range and then go down low with extreme authority. I'm looking to run this sub in a ported box as big as I can in the space I have, 2 cubes or less. Open to aeroporting. I've always ran single 15s but with the space constraints I'm open to moving down to 10 or 12. Interested in a nightshade nsv4 but can't decide/don't have the knowledge or experience to know the differences of what the speakers will sound like. Thank you in advance for any advice you have to give.
