    Bazooka subs....
    The smaller 8-inch tube sounds the best although the larger versions will have progressively more output.

    It's much better to use a single active crossover filter. If given the option, I would set the source to 'full' and exclusively use the amplifier lowpass filter. I wouldn't want the cascading phase...

    The Kicker KM10 is a decent subwoofer but stands no chance in the factory application.
    I suspect that the KM10 is a moderately high 'Q' sub that will work just okay in an infinite baffle...

    The surfaces of a round pod in particular reflect back against the cone in a very coincidental manner. So you can get a profound peak at one frequency and a profound dip at another. This can add an...

    That's unusual that you would have a pronounced whine on the subwoofer amplifier that you do not have on the fullrange or highpass channels of other amplifiers since the sub amplifier lowpass filter...

    Quote "That's what happens when you retire. You get old too."

    I guess I won't get any sympathy from youth.

    off2fly,
    Something isn't making sense here. Wetsounds absolutely repairs speakers. Period. And many here have experienced that. The replacement midbass drivers and HLCD diaphragms are very...

    A marinized amplifier is an essential if you are in a coastal or very brackish area.
    I would prefer that any fan-cooled amplifier has a conformal coating because you are constantly pouring moist...

    Yeah, crazy to replace the speakers without hearing them on better power. Source units may be rated at 4 X 50 watts but by the standards used by external amplifiers that would be a more realistic 4 X...

    Yes, they have a full-covering front poly dustcap in some cases and the paper cones are simply coated on...

    Independent of the specific noise that you are describing, do these additional LEDs interfere with FM radio reception?

    The dual 4-ohm voice coil in parallel (net 2-ohm) on a monoblock amplifier is the right choice.

    Nothing sounds better than a subwoofer where the power nor driver is over-taxed. The rest is up to...

    Yes, 600 watts total whether you wire the voice coils in series or parallel. Either route is fine in order to get the best match with a particular amplifier. The only thing you should not do is use...

    Okay, I originally overlooked that because of the 'DC' abbreviation.

    Under the driver's helm is the best location by a country mile even if you must size the woofer down. That is the only location where you can get direct radiation.

    I don't necessarily suspect water. Just being as thorough as possible. The fuse blew for a reason and that protects you from something more catastrophic. You're in good hands with Wetsounds.
