The director showed me all sorts of cool stuff. Woofers, tweeters, power supplies, amplifiers, even funny stories about a speaker “torture chamber” that he built to simulate intense heat/cold/humidity. That was an interesting discussion as I learned that the most resilient speakers he had ever tested were the HAT Imagines which took extreme head/cold/humidity with ease for a 24 hour period as it played at maximum output and did not skip a beat. Meanwhile he had destroyed the likes of Focal, Rockford Fosgate, and many other speakers with this same testing as well as many micro amps from other manufacturers (Rockford’s “boosted rail” amps were a dirty word there given how quickly they go into limp mode even with easy loads). This was my first real exposure to HAT which would later lead to me installing Unity components in my wife’s Jeep Grand Cherokee. His dedication to testing and finding the best products for his end customers was fascinating.
Wish I was better equipped to do the necessary testing to figure out the intput level limitations, etc. of these...but they seem to work really well with even just 1v max voltage. I'm IM'ing with one of the engineers over there right now to see if they have any more data that might help us figure it out
These guys have a 100% satisfaction guaranteed policy so if someone were to buy one of these and find it doesn't work well with their current source, you can send it back for full refund. These guys really take great care of their customers.
You're welcome Scott! I was blown away with what they were putting Imagines through there, amazing what you've done with those. The team there speaks very highly of you, cool that it is such a small world
I pulled the trigger on one of these a few weeks back. Reading all of this makes me even more mad that I have been to busy to get my new install in motion. I will note also about the great customer service I have been shown so far. It has been great. The signatures on the back of the amp of everyone who worked on your amp is an awesome touch. Gives you the feeling that they stand by their work and want their name to be a part of it. All the little things so far have been above and beyond. Now the only thing left is to see if the dyn's like it.
Hmm, I wonder if that will work for the sub. Sub will be up front, amp in the very back of the trunk. Not worried about power, but might need to run a short run of 18 gauge to a block and then up the size to the front of the car.
I have been waiting for a while to write a review about my DS18 amplifiers. I wanted to spend time with them and form my conclusions after more than a month.
Current system consists:
minidsp cdsp 6X8
Si m25, M3 and TM65 V2
SI RM 12
and 2 ds18 exl sq 600.4.
Not a whole lot to...
Hello everyone ,
In this thread we will discuss rePhase and it’s uses on many different platforms to be used in a car. Let’s not talk about running jriver or cpu convolution unless it’s going to be used in a car for the most part this will be discussing FFT convolution and relatively lower tap...
"Smells like a man" she says as I open the box.......
Time for another Average Joe review! Remember folks, I am not a pro. I dont compete, I dont have thousands in test gear. I just listen to them in a car as you would in the real world and try to find the weak spots and what sounds really...
While this review is intended to provide insight in to the use and subjective opinion of the end result of the MiniDSP with Dirac Live, it is not intended to be a full tutorial on how to tune with Dirac Live. I have linked various documents for that purpose. My discussion in that...
With the closure of SDS, along with some other companies on top of the creation of new companies like Resonix, its time to put these products through the gauntlet again.
I have plenty of time, but no funds to do this on my own, so I am fundraising to get this going. This test rig will be more...
