Db Drag Trunk class

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,   I will be entering Db Drag trunk class this up coming season. Im running into a problem and was looking for advice. In trunk class I will be limited to only two batteries total, 15 volts total and 4k of power total that will be clamped at time of burp. Which sundown amp will be the best fit for me? also I plan on using either 2 nsv3 18's or 4 nsv3 12's at .5 ohms.

You need to start building and testing.

a single amp wouldn't be the best as you'd have to get either the NS-1 and wire at 1ohm or the 3500d and wire to 0.5ohm

3500d= more current draw= lower voltage

NS-1 may work but is expensive

 

I can't guarantee you'd get ~4k from an NS-1 at 1ohm 

 

I'd personally to 2 stout amps if you have to stick with Sundown.

 

Like 2 3500ds and wire each at 1ohm and control it's output that way.

 

 

Unfortunately, those who are clamping power, if they are not using devices to consider Power Factor like our product can, then their clamped readings will be a LOT higher than what it suppose to be so depending on how you measure vs the competition, it may be impossible to properly regulate power output where you want it.

You are right, just seems to me that competitors should be able to use as much product that will fit in the trunk. Or have no power limits in the class. I think I would go with the 3500d and just hope my box design will give me the numbers i'm looking for, and the amp output stay under 4k

So drag doesn't have an unlimited trunk class?

sure don't. guess its a way to keep cost down for basic compeitors. wish they do come out with a hardcore trunk class or pro class. other spl org. shows are too far to travel to from Maryland.

X2!

Your local to me so we'll probably be going to the same shows/comps this season! I can help you build if you want.

      Question about the use of amps crossovers and sound processors. Is it best to go all active not at all or combine?? Are amp filters as good as sound processors? 
      When you buy a component speaker system you are paying for a crossover too. More expensive units have better crossovers. It’s been suggested that these crossovers use up power so not using them and using HPF and LPF on your amps is the better way to go. An alternative method is using a digital active crossover that can be programmed. 
      Different methods are also to influence phase shifts that can create cancellation  or have better frequency curves. 
      The cons would be a dedicated amp just for tweeters and one for mids and one for subs so instead of a 4 channel amp driving 4 pairs it would drive the mids on two channels and two channels for the tweeters then not using the expensive crossover that came with the speakers. 
      I’m running everything thru an Audio Control DQX with sub filter crossover point and EQ that is separating the signal at 90hz which I can adjust. Then thru a programmable crossovers The component and coax speakers are all actively crossed between subs and mids but I am using factory crossovers still. I’m assuming they are only helping tweeters but guessing they may have a filter for the mid too? 
      Do you think I am negating phase advantage by leaving factory filters in? Is the phase pollution not disruptive in high frequency so phasing mids and Subs is sufficient?
       I’m bi amping a pair of JBL competition speakers that has a jumper to remove in the crossover when doing this I am also using amp HPF and running other tweeters off all 4 channels. The JBL owner manual goes into great details about phase shifts and axis to explain what this crossover is doing to help  
      is there a better way to measure it sounds going to me but who knows?

      Good evening everybody. I have a few items to install for an Audio System upgrade; but don't know how to go about it. The Items that will be involved are -1 Distribution Block -2 Amps. -1 Capacitor. -1 Equalizer/Crossover -6 Speakers in Total (2 tweeters, 2 Front Door 6.5's, and 2 6x9's) -1 Subwoofer

      I'm trying to connect 2 amps; 1 for the Subwoofer and the Second for Speakers. My Aftermarket Head Unit has 3 pairs of RCA plug-ins.
      1) Subwoofer 2) Front 3) Rear.

      How Would I connect the 6 speakers (which I'm going to rewire) to the 1st amp? Do I wire the Speakers to the Amp or Straight to the Head unit itself? Also, how would I connect the amp to the Head unit if it only has the 3 RCA plug-ins as stated above?

      Any advice or suggestions are Welcomed. Thanks in advance.

      What are the pro's and cons of Korean built amps compared to Brazilian and Chinese. And for daily spl builds which is better.
