    What test tone to tune amps with?

    You can't just blindly do this. You need to use your senses and TRY really hard to listen to anything that sounds distorted. Listen to EACH driver independently as well. Super hard to hear your mids distorting if your bass is redlined.

    powerus amps?

    I know what you meant, still useless. No need for that much pre-amp voltage. Not going to get thermal noise with WAY less.

    Sq hdx subs

    For that amount of dough I'd buy something made by SSA. There are sweet spots for SQ, but the HDX I don't think will fill that.

    Ported Sundown truck box build

    Love the work so far...but am unsure how you determined the port length before measuring the overall volume. It isn't something that you can approximate...

    powerus amps?

    Which would be HORRIBLY useless. As for where, not sure.

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    Drive my sisters Trackhawk. It would actually be a reasonable replacement for the big ugly. $99.5k for a Jeep tho....fuck
  7. Clipping lights dont work. Worrying about output is silly. 1200 or 1500 you won't hear ANY difference
  8. Should ask what amp won't crap on you like your last one did. Jcarter gave you one option. In general your list is lackluster. Definitely run from the Skarbage.

    Well recorded music that you know well and well recorded music you dont know well. Tones are silly.

    So my stainless would then wipe down more easily afterwards? If so...I WANT.

    Help tuning amps

    The smd is the biggest waste of money you could possible have. First step is to teach yourself what distortion sounds like. Pretty sure you are used to liking it. Have to get beyond that first and then it is rather simple to set the gains. Just put them in a spot where they don't distort.

    Adire Audio back in business

    Funny that it coincided with some Linkedin activity by dan
  16. Check all your wires. They are currently either lose or grounding out. ....and turn down your gain

    SSA Evil 6.5 Opinions & Info

    Perhaps the installation and overall plans question wasn't specific enough. What processing, mounting locations, and potentially other drivers would you like to use with them? In general these are beasts in their category, but the question is does that category fill your need?

    Move North. That is terrible.

    SSA Evil 6.5 Opinions & Info

    Installation is the most critical factor in any install. Would like to understand what your overall plans are to make sure they are a match. As for what makes them special? They were designed and built to fit a niche in the car audio market. Most other drivers are shoe-horned compromises that don't fill that spot. Spending more than on the Evil's is somewhat of a case of diminishing returns, but none of us will carte blanche recommend them to you until we know how you will utilize them.

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    My boat is still at my dock...but I don't think it will get used. Just want to get it warm on the water before putting it on the trailer so I can winterize it warm.

    Holy. What are you doing to it? Copying me on the X3 but without dealer involvement?

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    The association I have with Klotz makes me want to smell it whenever I can. Teases me into some off season snowmobile action.
