  1. Zapco ST-6X DSP amplifier review with testing

    Member Reviews & Product Comparisons
    Over the past two weeks I have both installed and uninstalled the Zapco ST-6X DSP six channel amplifier. My access to the amplifier is due to my having installed it (and a companion Zapco ST-2000xmII) in a friend’s car, only to remove it six days later. I’ll try to keep this review objective...

  3. USB cable dangling from back of the radio, where to secure it for one-hand operation?

    General Car Audio Discussion
    You can buy panel mount usb kits that require a square or round hole and extend usb to an accessible location. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    I've enjoyed the quick access for tweaking. The DRC is a must, for sure, for access to presets and sub level. If you use the tuning for preout of the 800/8 you don't need to tune the 1000/1. In fact, you could use any sub amp of you wanted to use the pre out on the 800/8 for tuning the...

    These are very efficient, especially when ran active. I put the same combo in a Scion tC on a stock alt. It replaced two 600/4 and a 1200/1, pictured below. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  6. Hertz HSK V MPK

    General Car Audio Discussion
    I'm currently testing a set of the newest Mille Pro, the coax with the concentric tweeter, in some custom towers in my living room. They are surprisingly nice. Different than the HSK, in a good way, and I really liked the HSK. Tweeter needed some slight EQ but it's a simple coax. Tweeter...

  8. How to set gain on tweets/mids with TWK-88

    General Car Audio Discussion
    What head unit? If stock, its own distortion may limit what it can provide. You can view the stock HU electrical output by running the output into your sound card (LOC may be needed here). This way you can view levels electrically before the amp. This also lets you view clipping in more...

  10. Looking for dampening/insulating tips for 1968 Ford Mustang

    General Car Audio Discussion
    Agreed, leave it be. As far as heat goes, a thermal radiant barrier would be the recommended layer in place of the Jute padding that is there now. This is one example that I've used: https://www.homedepot.com/p/UltraTouch-48-in-x-24-ft-Radiant-Barrier-30000-11424/100661257 or if you just...
  11. FAST Rings... Worth It?

    General Car Audio Discussion
    I've been using foam weatherstripping for over a decade. The open nature of the FAST rings is why they make a poor front gasket. We all know they are for sealing to the door panel, but that is just one of the three gaskets needed: You can see the indent of the factory door panel in this...
  12. FAST Rings... Worth It?

    General Car Audio Discussion
    The idea is good. The FAST rings are just an example of poor implementation. The wrong material is used, and it is usually installed without matching the needed gap. My first comment is the material. I have tested it for water absorption and it does absorb water. The cellular structure...
  13. JL VXi amps

    General Car Audio Discussion
    They sound good. Coming from the Audison, I was curious what I would think. I don't feel like i am losing tonality. The way the clock signal is distributed probably plays a large role in this. The sound stage is really good and deeper than before, an adjustable all pass filter is a nice...
  14. JL VXi amps

    General Car Audio Discussion
    Here is the way I see it. Figure that you want DSP on every channel. And with external processors you quickly run into limits on how you can assign channels, how many channels are available, and how you want to cable to each of the amps from the processor. With the VXi you can network them...

    Yes! It comes unattached. I was part of the Beta group as well, and I ran it "incognito" with a panel that only let the LED shine through, no badge. The badge is stuck on with the supplied two-sided foam tape (already attached to the badge). You can probably just heat it up to remove it...

  18. Hertz Mille MLCX2-TM vs TW cross over

    Technical & Advanced Car Audio Discussion
    Gotcha. Many crossovers have a resistor network that functions as an attenuator pad. It is specific to the crossover. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  19. Hertz Mille MLCX2-TM vs TW cross over

    Technical & Advanced Car Audio Discussion
    A lack of midbass is usually due to a lack of seals at the door panel speaker openings. My one pair of ML165 have plenty of midbass. Are you asking if the TW crossovers can lowpass the 700.3? I also prefer tweeters with a 4kHz high pass. Passive crossovers protect speakers but rob some...

    Your local dealer can help ship them at your cost but they are not likely to give up their stock without a purchase from them. We sacrifice local support for online prices. My local dealer swapped a year old ML165 woofer that was making noise (not blown). But it was purchased from them...
