For a serious top end install power caps are a must. Have a look at one of pioneer or vibes demo cars they have extra batteries but still require power caps.
what is wromg wih 15s.everyone here has 12s.I would want to go for something different.My aim is to buld a system to blow away the competition.Are power caps really needed.I read on some site(Cant remember which one.It was some time ago)that the power caps just function like a battery,drawing power from the battery and then feeding it to the amp.Their expensive for nothing.I was thinking of the battery and so along with the regular batter for the car,i will put in 2deep cycle batteries of good quality in the back to run the amps.what do you think?
Sorry to sound silly,but what is dynamat?I guess i will go for the 12s then.could you recommed any good subs for the 10k watt maxximus amp and also a good power cap to match.Also is a X-over necessary if the amp already has a built in X-over?What gauge wire should i use for the power connections and for the sub?
Alright then i will go for the 12s.which ones would you recomend for the 10k watt amp.Also what power cap would be good for the 10k watt amp.do i need like a 50 farad cap?The sound shops here do not have the equipment here so i have to do my research and import the best components myself.I have had 2subs before and have heard4subs running on an amp of leser power than mine and the sound was fantastic,so im going to stick with4subs.Is a X-over necessary if the amp has a built in X-over ?
the amp is 1200 watts and the subs are bridged some door speakers and your set
also running 2 12 audiobahn eternals with the new alpinev 1000
Do you know the RMS watts of your amp.
When buying a Power Cap you need 1 Farad per 1000 Watts of RMS power. Find out your RMS output and that will tell you how many Farads you need.
If I was you I'd run two 12's. With a big enough power cap you shouldn't need an extra battery. How is it all wired up? The quality of the wires used will make a difference also.
