    Icons in a dual 15" + horn setup

    And really nice and Behringer probably shouldn't be used in the same sentence either.

    I think he's describing a different use for them though. They're not ment as midrange drivers and probably won't perform as well as something you can get from madisound or parts express. If you're thinking of using them in a three way setup though, by all means, they'll be great for the low end.

    Whats better than a Fi BTL?

    YT and BT's are the same internally. The only differences come with the posts.

    I concur with Ryan on this one.

    Time Alignment and Me.

    I sincerely doubt each one of those drivers outputs sound at the EXACT same instance as the others. Hence the reason you align the drivers to themselves. Then add time alignment L/R.

    Time Alignment and Me.

    How would that help? If the speakers are located at the same locations in the vehicle (i.e. doors), and you measured to a point in the center of the vehicle.....the speakers would measure equidistant You would have to measure the differences at the listening position. Then again, I've never set time alignment with measurements.....I've always set it by ear. Because your head moves. You can't account for how you sit or if you're leaning to the left or the right. You also can't account for passengers being in the way of the waves. Better to just pick a common open spot in the space and aim for that. As close to your natural spot as possible of course. You can do timing by ear, or measuring, the only real way to get it right though is with mic and computer that can measure down to the .001 ms.

    Incorrect. Time alignment should be used so that all the drivers are producing sound that is coming to your ear at the same time. Regardless of how many drivers he has producing whatever frequency, placement can be corrected with alignment and phase filters.

    Time Alignment and Me.

    You can still use time alignment. One millisecond is about 1.12 feet. Rather than measuring right to your ear, measure to a common spot in the middle of the vehicle. Or just around the driver side. Set up an object about as tall as you so you have something stationary to measure to. Also, here's a calculator I use to help with the conversion of inches and microseconds. http://www.sengpielaudio.com/calculator-soundpath.htm
  9. Not to mention, less wiring to send out of the amp for sure.
  10. Indeed. With the multiple wiring options of the dual voice coil woofers, one or two mono block amplifiers would be much more efficient and probably cheaper.
  11. Is your unit even able to control an iPod? You should flip through the user manual for clues..

    LED's connected to Amp outputs?

    You can get both iirc.

    15" ICON and Sundown audio saz1000d problems

    Try disconnecting the woofer from the amp, then see if the amp turns on.

    Cool, go ahead and post it here. This is SSA.

    Stetsom Not For Sale In SSA Store?

    You should be safe to list them with a "see price in cart" deal. No advertising there. Once a customer adds the amp to the cart, it means they intend to buy it.
