My New Stuff After the break in
I will have pictures because all the stuff is coming in over this next week but i will list what i got and you guys can rip me apart or say what you want but since insurance payed for it all.. I am happy. What i originally had is still in my profile and these are the new things...

Infinity Kappa Perfect 12" Subwoofers 12.1 (2 of them)
Alpine In-Dash CD Player (CDA-9827)
Power Acoustik Amp LT1920/2 (370W x 2)
Then a 4 gauge wiring kit with a 1.75 Cu. ft. box (ported)
Power Acoustik 1.2 Farad Cap

I think what i got will really boom, probably should go out and buy some dynomat wink

how do you ahve 1600 watts into that sub? Do you rely on your amp by the total power it says is puts out? Look at what it puts out rms. Most brands don't even put out the watts they say besides fosgate, jl, zapco,alpine..etc...other amps such as sony, power acoustik, audiobahn are way overrated. The thing is that Infinity can't take more than 350 real rms watts because it will burn their coil. They had a real big problem with this. Even their company doesn't recommend anthing over 300 watts. So make sure you give it around 300, and have a warranty on it.

ya the amp gives more than enough power to the subs.. the RMS runs at 350 for the subs and the amp will give around 380

easy i can tell you now i had one before it got stolen...

you find a good ground (not the same ground as the amp) and ground it, then run your power wire to the battery and hook it on the positive terminal, then put another wire on that same positive terminal and run that wire to the amp. Everything on the cap has to have a ring terminal on it because the two top bolts are what screw everything in. if this is unclear just tell me

yeah rms is what you have to go by. there's max power and there's rms power. i don't know of anyone who is feeding 1600 watts of rms into their sub(s).

Your insurance really went through your claim quickly. I had mine broken into over a month ago, and I'm still fighting with them...Nice stuff. thumbsup

Actually pretty much all brands give fake Wattage values, all the entry level amps mainly. Rockford sells their shitty punch series amps at Best Buy claiming like 1500W so when i tell people that i have a 500 Watt Power Series, they say "thats weak only 500W" and other shit like that then i have to go to the parking lot and pop my trunk and proceed to blow their ear drums. damn system ricers

true^^ i think the break in period for subs is a joke. its an advertising excuse rockford used so people would not return them after 15 minutes of incorrect installaion. otherwise retards would run everything at 1 ohm and come back in the store after 30 seconds. i never believed the break in thing if stuff is installed right


Where did my sig go? help me find it..........
