Sure, but first see what it does on the TL in a box, then what it does on the TL frying it.

well the wall socket is 110v and i've had my amps to put out 110v and the sub was fine. maybe its different if its real electricity.

yeah plug that so we can compare to the apx and see if it has some guts but by the way the apx was plugged at a 220 volts outled and took it like a champ and the coil looked like new :-) it was around 26000 rms close to 30k rms watts at like 60 hz

the prob is chad not the amperage its the fcat it wont be dc anymore like in a car it will be ac. which dc is continuous and ac is little pulses which the frequency is 60 in the us so it will be getting 60 pulses every second thats what messes it up.

come one now rob. you can't compare this sub to that monster apx. give me a break. but 110v i know it can take.

isn't the apx suppose to handle like 30,000 wrms for short burps?

when it comes to power, rob is right when he talks about the apx. they are just about the toughest they can be.

i know but i think the btl will handle that power im sure the btl will take up to 10 k at burps so yeah wire it at 8 ohm and ull be fine :-)

charlie wth r u talking about that was an entirely false statement, a sub in a car is getting AC current, you have 3300 posts, you have to have been here at least as long as i was, please, pretend like you know what your talking about

mr kebo the amp takes dc and converts it to ac when it sends it to the subs. that is why when you set the gain with dmm, you set your dmm to ac volts.

i realized that 110v would be around 12,000 wrms at 1 ohm. i think my sub can take it. the question is what frequency will that be?

and if you wire it at 8 ohms its only 1500 rms, maybe a bit more

60hz. thats pretty good. my car peaks at 51hz. i should get a tl and meter it while the sub is plugged in to the wall.

how about i get a strong power inverter in my car and just plug the sub to that. you think i will get full 110v out of the inverter?

the problem i have doing that troy is my sub is dual 2 ohm. i would have to use both of my subs to get 8 ohms.

nope, itll blow a fuse, it makes 110v but only like 50 amps while a house socket would make lets say 150 amps... im not sure on the numbers im just putting it in perspective

well wire at 1 ohm and make some boom, or if you want to garentee not hurting the sub wire @ 4 or use both subs........ if you wire @ 4 it will be ust like wiring both subs at 4, just the wall will see a diff ohm load

I used the voltage target calc to figure out what 220V would be equal to in a 1 ohm load and it said the amplifier would be 48410 rms, lol. Polo.

damn how many batteries and runs of 0 gauge do you think you need to support such an amp. damn.

What will happen is you're going to blow a fuse. the standard wall outlets are only rated for a max of ~25-30 amps. which =~22500watts

If you are going to try it you need a load that will give you about 1500 watts, as depending on if you're house is new or old there could be problems going above that. Like a house fire at worst, at best just a blown fuse. The wires in the wall could heat up adn start a fire.

Dont get me wrong, i would love to see a vid of it. But be careful as i dont wanna see you're house burn down because of it.

IT wont burn down the house or nething....its the same thing if you have too many things going at one time like a toaster, foreman grill, and microwave....it will pop the breaker once it reaches the most current....15-25 amps in most houses....not sure exactly what yours is.
