DCR reads .7 but the load on the amp is still 1 ohm

When I put a dmm on the terminals on the outside of my box it reads .5 ohm.

Ok regardless. When you wire 3 dual 1 subs they wire to .67 load. Now when I add a second amp I will wire them to what 12volt says will give me a 1.5 load making each amp see a .75 load. At .75 or .5 they will be drawing more than I have now and need more battery power.

I really like diehard plats. That's what I have for my main battery. Awesome warranty and sears is right down the road.

They have a friends and family night every month with special discounts on everything. November was yesterday haha.

153.0@37hz headrest in Meca yesterday. Did a 131.0 in Park & Pound DB4. That was on 300amp of fusing.

Two 1st place trophies, best truck and best install medals as well. I really want to pull a 55 at the headrest though.

Now its time to add more batteries, distro blocks, more 2/0, add the second 5500 and also incorporate this DD 2 channel amp I have to run just the tweeters while the 4 channel runs the mids. Also gonna be doing my doors and will probably be running all Rockford Pro Audio gear soon. Crescendo cant seem to keep anything in stock so I will probably switch tweeters too. Will more than likely have 3 6.5's in each door and one or two tweeters in each door. Whichever one disgust M5 the most is what I will probably go with. lmao

Congrats on the score and trophies!

I don't know why M5 would be disgusted. He helped design the supertweeter. He wanted a tweeter that mated perfect to a 10" mid. I also believe his rule of thumb is 2 to 1 ratio. So if you plan on 2 mids per door that would equate to 4 supertweeters. You can do a 1 to 1 but that wouldnt be a true sq setup. That would be more of a ""SQL"". Which is a phrase he coined as well I believe.

maybe 5 3100's with a good batt under the hood

I have a 3100 under the hood and 3 in the back on one 5500@.5 and the voltage is pretty good

If I got a 2nd I'd want to add a couple more 3100's

Looks great swift!

Anxious to see the results.

Did you manage to fit all the batteries under the floor or are they going in the tool box?

The new amp is a C1100.4 to run the front doors. Gonna be doing a large very loud front stage. All Rockford Punch Pro Audio. All batteries are going in tool box. 4 Die Hards and 2 3400's in the tool box and the other 3400's under the hood. I hope thats enough battery power. I think I may order some Knu Krystal RCA's. Now I just have random shit in there, some are tsunami, rockford and maybe even a Memphis set. lol

Decided to just make my own bus bars. The trick will be making them for the Die hard batteries as I have .5in thick Aluminum and only .5in studs.

These are the copper bars I got in to use as my fuse blocks. They were suppose to be 2in wide but these are only 1.5in wide. I still think this will work. I have a 3rd bar that will be used for the ground block. 6 runs of power to the block from battery bank and 4 runs going to amps and 1 run to the 4 channel. Bad thing is I cant run dual inputs on the amps unless I double up lugs. These will be mounted on pass side when you open the rear doors for easy access.

photo21-1.jpg

The ground block will have 5 runs coming off the amps and 4 2/0 runs from there going to the frame where they meet the 4 ground runs off the battery bank. I hope this will be efficient. This will be mounted on the driver side when you open the rear door aswell.

At Home Depot they sell the copper screw down terminals that you can use to terminate 2 1/0 wires in a single terminal. Not sure if they make it for 2/0 but that would work if you wanted to run dual inputs off a single terminal.

After hours and hours of labor I basically have the copper power fuse blocks, copper ground block, battery terminals, and XS bus bars done. I will have to run jumpers on the Die Hard batteries unless I buy wide copper buss bars but I dont think its needed. Jumpers will go parallel and will also have runs going straight to fuse block and ground block/frame from each battery too. After spending hours among hours doing all this shit myself its very rewarding when each step is done.

No I can finally start cutting on the truck and running all the 2/0 under truck and up into bed / tool box, through the floor into cab and get the blocks mounted, amps mounted. Then I can focus on the front stage.

      1. Product: 2 Fi SP4 18s with Carbon Fiber Dust Caps
      2. Specs: Both are dual 1 ohm (0.7 ohm)
      3. Description/Condition: Ran them for a little under a year on low power (Audioque 2200). Magnets have some scratches but the surrounds, baskets, spiders, and coils are in excellent condition. Does not include the original gaskets. A couple of the pictures are next to a 10" Kicker "Competition" (lol) for size comparison.
      I threw out the original boxes some time ago, but Fi was nice enough to send me two brand new boxes to ship them in. So these will ship in original Fi packaging.
      7/10 Cosmetically
      10/10 Mechanically
      4. Price: Asking $900 SHIPPED OBO for the pair. Because they are dual 1 ohm, I would like to keep them as a pair. NO TRADES, just trying to get rid of all my stuff.
      I'm located in Huntsville, AL 35810. Would be willing to drive to meet someone within reason.

      This sub has been nothing but great to me. Can't say enough about it. Sadly I have just sold my amp and made a bunch of space in my trunk for a lot more business. ( (2) 12"s )
      This 12" can do it all..handled my MMATS m3000.1 with ease, hit the lows, and was great for a daily woofer.
      Has always been on a good supporting electrical cast. I am pulling the sub tomorrow because I'll be pulling my amp as well. Can take more pictures for people with more interest then.
      Recone has a date of 9/xx/14 and actually didn't use it for about 4 weeks it was installed because I had to wait on a warranty claim on a battery.
      There is a bit of a glue splotch on the top plate, but no biggie, just CA. bottom of motor looks mint.
      Minimal chips in ferrite. Included is the motor boot and 12" gasket.
      Price:
      275$ plus shipping
      Shipping and Miscellaneous Item Information:
      Ask me for a shipping quote
      Will be using UPS.
      US 48 only.
