  2. Audison Bit One & output voltages

    General Car Audio Discussion
    Hello Friends, Been a while since I posted here. I've been busy but I decided to pick up my old hobby again. I was hooked up with some excellent stuff. Got myself an Audison Bit One DSP for just $100, and some other stuff. Rockford T1500bcp for just $200. Now, I've got some kind of Android...
  3. Amp not working, voltage drops JL e1400d

    Technical & Advanced Car Audio Discussion
    I just bought a used Jl audio e1400d amp to power my 2 Jl audio 12's. The 250/1 I had there before I think over heated. I am not getting any sound out of it but the power light comes on. When I use the multimeter with the amp off I get right around 14v for the power and remote wires, but as soon...
  4. Tuning with DMM, out of ideas.

    General Car Audio Discussion
    I'm relatively new to car audio as this is my first personal system, but I'm completely out of ideas as to what may be going on even after months of searching. I bought a 600w subwoofer package back in March of this year which included a Boss CXXM1250 amp and an Audiopipe TXX BD1-12 sub. The...
  5. Does something like this exist?

    System Design: Help Me Choose Equipment For My Car

I have an Audioque AQ 200.2 that I'm bridging to run an Arc Audio Arc12D4 V3. I know how to install this amp with a LOC, and I have one of those as well. I know...

  8. Using a Capacitor for main electrical instead of amp?

    Technical & Advanced Car Audio Discussion
    i just thought of this idea today. Since caps "stiffen" the voltage for whatever is on the receiving end then would this help the electrical system such as the lights from dimming? i realize you would need a lot of farads in order for this to work well but it could be worth a try. Has anyone...
