I recently bought a 900w class D mono amp (Digital Audio DAD9004). It's 1ohm stable, so I've got my heart set on wiring my subs that way. I had a 10" Power Acoustik FUBR in a sealed enclosure (2ohm dvc running @ 1ohm) - and I fried it! So, I borrowed my brother's until I could find a replacement (identical speaker), turned the input level down on my amp (to be sure not to blow this one too) - and the wiring rips out from between the speaker terminal and the side wall of the speaker. I mean come on!!! I guess from the sub moving so much... I don't know. So can anyone with knowledgeable advise please help me decide on a final purchase for my amp. I would really appreciate all the help I could get. It seems like the people on this forum have intelligent opions and are surprisingly helpful. So I'd appreciate all professional opinions. I'm pretty much limited to a 10" sub, but I could deal with a 12" if need be. I think my Power Acoustik didn't have the frequency range I'm looking for either. Any thoughts? Thanks, everyone.
Hey, basslova. Thanks for helping out... I would like to keep it within the $150.00 range, but realistically speaking - I get the impression I will have to spend more. So, only if I absolutely have to, I guess I could spend as much as $250, $275 at the very most. (and this would have to be one exceptionally awesome speaker). Keeping it from $100 to $200-$225 would be more comfortable for me.
I hope I didn't disappoint you, please try your best. Thanks again.
Thanks, James. But, I've never heard of Image Dynamics before. Is it pretty nice, or... I appreciate your help. If it's a good sub let me know. I'm not doubting you - just kinda wondered, you know? thanks again
Well, thanks you guys. I appreciate the advise. I checked it out a little, and it seems to be a pretty nice one. I was wondering though: why don't they list a max output too. ( not that it matters - just different ) No mention of how many oz. the magnet weighs either. Tell you the truth, I couldn't find the frequency range in plain english either. Maybe someone has understandable specifics for this sub. If so, let me know... Honestly, though - it sounds to good to be true. Is it right up there with the big boys in subs or ??? Again, I'm really glad I have you guys to help me. Any other suggestions are welocome as well, of course. Thanks.
www.imagedynamicsusa.com I believe. There's almost no sub on the market that can touch its sound quality. If you want more SPL, then you may go with another sub, but when it comes to SQ, look no further.
What are you referring to when you say "max output". That's a very broad term. The T/S specs are on their website. Click "Products". Move your mouse over the subs tab, click IDMAX. on the bottom where it shows the models, click on "View" under where it says "Tech Page". Everything you should need to know about it. Also has enclosure specs to boot.
Thanks for all your advise, everyone. I really appreciate it alot! You've almost got me convinced... now, all I'm thinking is how much spl am I looking for. I've gotta do some more researching to find out how other sub's spl levels compare to the Image Dynamics - but all the help and input you guys may have is more than just appreciated! I value your expertise, and seriously, "thanks again!!!"
