I do wonder if I will ever outgrow SPL, but I've been enjoying it for ~4-5 years (more seriously in the last 2) and am more into it than ever. Thanks I won't hesitate to ask any questions!Lots of car audio folks were into SPL before getting into SQ. There are many here with a great deal of knowledge and first-hand experience in SPL. If you have any specific questions and/or ideas, post 'em up. You might be surprised.
But yeah, this is very much an SQ-oriented forum.
Well we have info....and some of us have been around since before spl was known terminology.I do wonder if I will ever outgrow SPL, but I've been enjoying it for ~4-5 years (more seriously in the last 2) and am more into it than ever. Thanks I won't hesitate to ask any questions!
Honestly Taramps is usually acceptable for the average normie looking for some dBs. We are not the average person though lol. At least they are hitting rated power around or under 1% THD. Boss and other brands are on a different level of terrible lol.also a lot of SPL gear is honesty just pure trash.
@daloudin may have something to say about Taramps lolGet out of here with your loud music!!! Grrr you young kids and your loud music grrr!!
Jk LOL (I’m not even that old) but yeah most people here are more into SQ - don’t get me wrong I like to jam out with some loud music and the subs hitting hard. I just don’t care about having four 18” sundown ZVX in a 5 cube box tuned to 40hz
I will take a single or dual 12” sub sealed and it gets plenty loud while still being accurate.
also a lot of SPL gear is honesty just pure trash.. I like electronics as a hobby so I am not fond of the Taramps cheap **** amps or the generic Chinese $hit that is so prevalent in the SPL scene.
Taramps ARE cheap and when compared against other brands of similar topology and construction they can be found to be lacking in the areas of noise floor, connector quality and many other aspects of construction. Mine is dead silent except for the fans (which is a no go for a lot of folks but mine is in the spare tire well under a false floor) and produces competent bass from the SQL12 even on par with other Class D sub setups I've had in the past. No complaints but I'm not expecting it to keep up with one of those surfboard ½ bridge monsters.
