Re: Channel summing for full range signal

Hello, I think, hope this will be the last update on this.

Re: Channel summing for full range signal

After a few days, I was still having the same issue. Intermittently, the amp would shut off when the volume was up and the bass was strong.

Re: Red Trailhawk

Not sure, but I think the rears are 20% (darker). I wanted to do the front the same, but it's not legal for the fronts darker than 35% in Texas.
