I miss the old ways of posting pictures where you can put a caption above the pictures to explain then.  

 

If you look at each picture, I have a different set of channels highlighted under the OutPut Section in the middle. Each set of channels is named to the corresponding speakers it controls. Under that section you will see crossover points. These DSPs are easy to use once you get your hands on one, I felt lost when I first played with one but with the help of Google it wasnt that hard.

I really can't decide on a new sub amp, not really gaining tons of power.

Sundown Audio Salt 4k

Crossfire C7-4k

DD Audio M4000

Incriminator Audio IX4.1

Not anymore, amp was ordered last night and should be here Monday. :woot: :rockwoot:

 

Also plan to meet with my box builder who built my box for my two Sundown 12s last year and the box for my Icon thats profile picture. I might be going back to two 12s but we will see. Might need to work on more electrical after this new amp so that will determine my next step.

The same day my new amp was delivered, I sold my old amp. That worked out perfectly

Since I did not plan on selling my amp last night, I never got around to order new fuses for the Salt-4. Ordered them last night after I sold the amp, they should be here Friday or Saturday so I won't hear it till then. But I didn mount the amp up and wire it for now, no bass for a few days but I'll survive.

These Sundown Bass Knobs are pretty dope, voltage and clipping light plus amplifier temperature guage. I'll compare my current volt meter to this bass knob and see how accurate one is over the other.

I love the look of those amps.  I ordered their 5 channel full bridge last year and it was a mess.  Took 4 months to get my refund so I swore I'd  never order from them again, but I still really like the SALT amps.

Me too, I love them. I can't wait to get this thing in and playing, I even set the pots for quick install when I get fuses. Tune will commence later. Its time for lithium, I need reserve.

I had to recone my horn driver since I broke a spade terminal awhile back. I had the shop solder some wire on and eventually I got static at certain times. The recones were cheaper than I expected and easy as 1, 2, 3 to do.

New High Score, all sealed up. Salt amp stays cool after pushing on it real hard. Gained over a db with the swap alone and no tuning so far than with my Ampere Audio 3800.1.

 

Box tuned low to 31hz as well, sub up and port back. I designed this box myself and had my last builder construct. I'm proud of myself but want more now.

The rear cup on the horns, can that be tuned (dampened) to control diaphragm movement?   I do this to planar drivers and find I can tune them a lot lower and eek a little bit more power handling as well.   I was crossing BR Neo3s at 1200.

These can be crossed as low as 700hz but I keep mine crossed at 1200hz. I honestly have no clue, would have to message Eric Stevens about that one.

Cleaning up the wires going into the DSP, using some Tesa Tape which I love vs using Electrical Tape.

Put some work in on the car early this morning, I remounted my volt meter and finally mounted my bass knob. Due to the slope and curvature of the console I couldn't get them lined up but I'm not complaining at all.

Who would of thought that I would have twins, especially at 55lbs a piece. My trunk, suspension, sunroof and car in general are going to hate me.
