    If you are running the 200.2 bridged into two speakers wired in parallel, you are loading each amp channel down to only 1-ohm. I am really surprised you are not putting the amp into protection...

    The horns do not use the enclosed air in the can as a compliant element, so it would be fine to leave the poly out and not change the sound of the horn. If you want to be really anal, go ahead and...

    OH yeah, that 6-volt AM tube radio. I got to rework that thing a few years ago. We installed a 12-volt alternator and battery to run modern gear. I then used an FM to AM modulator so I could get...

    What is the bass tone control set at? Is the loudness feature, (if the radio has it) turned on or off?

    Most of the time, popping speakers in a head-power-only setup is due to tone controls that...

    Also, be sure to make sure crossover FREQUENCY is set properly.

    For the towers, something around 100, (or higher, probably not lower) is about right. For the in-boats, something around 60, (or...

    You really cannot change the laws of physics, regardless of brands. Sound behaves in a pretty consistent manner. Sound comes off both sides of a speaker cone, and in a can or other enclosure the...

    You probably don't realize it but you diagnosed your problem in all likelihood. The head unit is at a different voltage potential than the amp. See bold part of your post above.

    Yeah, the clipping was EITHER coming from the radio behaving badly at full volume OR the amp gains were too high.

    BTW, your radio will almost never be turned all the way up, unless you are playing a low amplitude, (low volume) song. Very few head units work at 100% volume without clipping on normal music.

    My best means of testing a start cap on a 110 electric motor was to replace it. They are relatively cheap. If the motor runs after replacing the cap, the old cap must be bad. If the motor doesn't...
