Pretty sure that is the one I am thinking of if the lights in the center got brighter as the boost level was increased.

Re: Custom Bass Cube Remote

Seems like there is a short in the dial where it turns it on/off. Road bumps make it cut on/off sometimes, and tapping the dial can do it too. It's probably a simple soldering fix. Ever since I read where someone made one that you could tell what level the boost was from the light I have wanted one ...

Custom Bass Cube Remote

A while back someone here on the Phorum said that they had made a custom bass cube remote that the light brightened and dimmed depending on the boost level. Does anyone know who that might have been? My cube remote is going out, and I am exploring the possibility of having one made that better integ...

Re: 2012 Chevy Silverado (Full Phoenix Gold Install)

I found myself wanting new subs recently. I was looking for more SPL, and went into that on the understanding that I would lose a little SQ. I went with Digital Designs Supercharged 9500 12" subs. I figure since many regard them as the greatest SPL sub of all time, I would be hard pressed to fi...

The new tiny waterproof amps are being marketed as "powersports amplifiers". Seems these are designed for UTV's and motorcycles.

Re: Understanding RMS vs Peak

But one thing I do notice is that when I play that Downlink song you sent me Kirghiz, it sounds extremely clean except for one note, all I can describe it is a "Dun - dun dun - dun". I'm sure you know the one I'm talking about. But that note I always turn down the knob a little because it...

never paid a bit of attention in the power handling #'s of my subwoofers. One of the most useless numbers on the spec sheet. Build the box right, keep the signal clean and unclipped and throw as much at them as you can. This. The published RMS power specs on subs are a "safe number" that ...

Adding the second driver and second amp should get you over 150-151 if you are at 147 now I would think.

Re: Hair tricks

Short answer......No.

You might could do it with an Elite.1 and (8) Ti2 12's, but definitely not a pair of Elites. Really, you're probably going to need a bunch of 15's.

Re: Help Tuning Ti21300.1 and 2 Ti212D4's @1ohm **I'm a noob

Basically what I want is to have my subs pushing 85-90% of what they can handle. You don't want to be there for a few weeks. Subs need to break in a bit before you really start pushing them. That said, what music are you playing on them? Go and download this track from somewhere (itunes or wherever...

You are wrong. I've never had bigger than 12s, and only had sealed boxes, and I've beat out 15s in my SPL competition days. Hitting a higher number on a meter in a competition =/= rattling store windows and setting off car alarms. "Obnoxious bass" and the OP's definition of it has nothing...

Well I guess my definition of obnoxious bass is you know that guy that drives around your subdivision with his system blasting and it shakes the windows in your house. You won't get there without at least a pair of 15's ported. A pair of twelves with enough power will be audible for a fair distance...

Is the enclosure ported or sealed? If it's sealed you'll kill them quick trying to get "obnoxious bass". One twelve ported will feel like more bass than a pair sealed. Actually, I don't know what your definition of obnoxious bass is, but for mine you really can't get there on a pair of 12'...

They're externally powered. They're actually on the same circuit as the lights for the Elite subs. It is all wired into the vehicle's alarm so I can use the key fob to turn the lights on and off.

Edge lighting the plexi isn't possible I don't think. There isn't enough room inside of the track that holds the plexi in place to conceal the LED's. There is only about 3/8 of an inch of space in that notch, and the plexi occupies it all. Someone may prove that wrong, but I asked several people abo...

All this discussion about the Elite.1.......Since you already have a Ti21300.1, I'd just get another one and run two of them rather than try and get an Elite.1. You won't be able to run a .1 at 1 ohm without upgrading alternators, and a pair of 1300.1's make more power than a .1 at 2 ohm anyway. By ...

First. When you burn the CD in itunes, select the Apple Lossless format. Makes a bigger file on your computer, but the quality is much better and well worth it.
