Re: Stereo gurus assemble!!

Well believe it or not, Hifonics amps are actually pretty close on there rms ratings. i have used them before and they worked great. here is a pic of a test a german car audio magazine did on one. as you can see its real close to what to they say. Not to mention that they are CEA-2006 compliant which means it has to put out what it says.

Re: Stereo gurus assemble!!

I have a 15" Fi Audio SSD with a couple added options that I'd be willing to part with for a good price. Would come with a specially built ported box (made the box to best fit the subwoofer's specifications). If you haven't heard of Fi Audio, do a little search and you will see that they are substantially better than anything you can buy from Best Buy. I'm sure there's someone else on here that could back that statement as well. PM me if you have any interest.

Caps are just a band-aid and are really a huge waste of money. If you're having dimming issues, the right solution is an after-market alternator. I had a Kicker ZX1000.1 in my Jeep (pushing 1300 legitimate watts) and I had no dimming issues.

You are correct, caps are major band-aids...waste of money

Re: Stereo gurus assemble!!

Okay, I'm not going to challenge a CES_2006 report. But the amp is still under powered for the subs it's paired with. If you want the loudest, hardest bass you gotta feed it the power it asks for.
