I got 2 audiobahn AW1208T's and you guys were right. . .they dont sound that good , but they hit very hard which is good cause I'm not much for SQ in this vehicle im going for spl and they do extremely well for that.
Well it will be a while because I only have one hifonics bx1500d hooked up to them right now so its only pushing 1000 watts at 2ohms (500 a sub). As soon as i get the other amp and a cap im going to run them at 1500 a piece at 1 ohm
that sound's like a hard hiting system! The only thang is that everone is saying that audiobahn is a crap sub and that it won't stay to geather. I was looking at a pare of audiobahn alum10q subs but everone talked me out of it so i bought a pare of rockford fosgate 10 inch hx2's.
Ive always used audiobahn , the only problem Ive ever had out of them is a sub , I was pushing its rms of 1000 and about a month later it blew , I then took it to a buddy of mine and he fixed it , believe it or not with finger nail polish lol , after that it worked fine and still does to this day. Im not sure what cause it to blow , but I *think* it could have been from not breaking it in and ripped the voice coil or something. I also had rockford subs and amps , I like them also , but I blew a 12" fosgate power dvc , but i know why i blew it , i had it hooked up to a 1000w tsunami amp , and was trying to give it more power than the amp had to offer.
I have one audiobahn aw1208t hooked up to an audiobahn a2200hct 1600 watt rms amp and an audiobahn acap7p 1 farad cap and I think that the thing absolutley pounds. I could not imagine having two of those in my car. With that cap, my lights don't dim one bit, headlights or my interior lights. I can't believe that your two don't sound that good. I am very impressed with mine. The box that it is in is about 2.25 cubic feet, and that thing will make my wiper blades vibrate when the remote bass boost is only up half way.
jon doe. Man, you really need to learn a lot. Capacitors do not solve dimming problems.
Also... Did you guys ever stop to think that Audiobahn makes their stuff all chromed out and flashy because they cant sell it based on performance? Its hot garbage in a box. BTW there is no way Id run an audiobahn at 800 watts rms of its rated at 800 watts rms. It reaches xmax way before that... Youre gonna blow the crap outta them.
I knew they werent top of the line when I bought them , I thought I mentioned that above lol , my experience with audiobahn has been great , so until I have a bad experience i wont change my mind. And maybe they make them chrome and flashy because they like looks , thats like saying ferrari makes their cars look good because they suck and just want to sell them. Caps will stop the lights from dimming , but its just hiding the real problem , your alternator. I would recommend getting a more powerful one , even if you cant see it because the cap is helping the light dimming problem , your probably still cuasing strain on your alternator.
if you're happy that's what counts. glad it's working for ya. a capacitor will only at best, mask the symptoms of the need for a larger alternator though. they smooth out spikes in demand, but they still have to recahrge, so while the lights may not dim suddenly, they will be dimmer continuously as a result of the sagging voltage rails. This is a common misconception about caps.. that they replace the need for the proper charging system. just an FYI there.
I bet CC told him to buy a Cap, you know them greedy SoB's
