Re: What amplifier should i use?

I think the concept series was meant to be a cheater amp, so it's rated 25x4 at 12.5volts. When you are up to 14 volts likes like triple the power. I don't want to tell you that it's ok to run it at 2 ohms mono, but I don't think you'll have any issues as long as you bridge it right. So this model ...

Re: What amplifier should i use?

Another vote for the 0.3 on the fronts and the 400 or 600 to the sub. I think the sub is rated overall. I've never seen a sub rated per coil. Thanks for your reply its my first dual coil subwoofer so i was not sure how they are rated, im sorry to say i could not fit the zpa and zx in my trunk becau...

I think that im going all Phoenix i can exchange the zpa0.3 with a zx600ti or 600titanium but the zpa sounds great on subwoofers, hope i can fit it all in the trunk lol

Re: My new amp repair project Harman Kardon CA5250

DC? anything above 0.5vdc should trigger the dc protection circuit. Yup, it tries starting up but the volt goes up on the sub channel and it goes in protect mode, i checked caps they have contact and the caps are mounted the right way. I changed all the fets and im waiting on the small smd resistor...

Re: Look what i got today Orion 97.2 concept dsp + 97.1 conc

Yeah perhaps just the crossover boards are different but the boards are exactly the same. Am still trying to figure out how much the XTR475 goes for, I priced it at 300.00 @DIYMA and got a few interested buyers but yet to sale it. I think it funny that no one have seen this before i even see people...

The ones i find online all say special edition and edition but maybe there were two ty...

Got any gut pics? I can verify if its the same amp just different chassis...perhaps that's why its special edition, it has a brushed chrome finish.
