Hey man i just bought a 1600w mono class d PG (V8001) amp and was wondering if you know how to make a homemade bass remote. i noticed they look like a variable resistor with a phone cord that plugs into the amp. i dont feel like waisting money on buying one and thought id make my own. any advice to point me in the right direction would be great! thanks!!!

I classify this as a sleeper of the car audio industry. it is powerful, well built, cheap, feature laden, sounds great! very comparible to the big names such as kicker, alpine, fosgate an all the rest. i would prefer this amp over any of them any day of the week! here are the specs for it incase u didn't have them.
Max. Power Output: 800W x2Ch.= 1600W @2 Ohms
330W x 2Ch.(@2 Ohms) Less Than 0.5% THD
220W x 2Ch.(@4 Ohms) Less Than 0.3%THD
Bridge: 660W x 1 Ch.(@4 Ohms) Less Than 0.5% THD
All Measurements Done @ 14.4V DC, 1 KHz Input Signal.
Dual Fan Cooling System.
LPF (Low Pass Filter) Variable 30Hz-250Hz
HPF(High Pass Filter) Variable 50Hz-l KHz.
Slope Adjustable 12-24dB.
Variable Bass Frequency(30Hz-120Hz).
Variable 0-18db Bass Boost.
High & Low Adjustable Level Input.
Dual LED Indicated Power Status (Protect/Power).
Mosfet DC-DC Switching Power Supply.
Built-in Protection Against Short Circuit, High Temperature & Overload.
Hi mate very nice amp you got there here is the specs for it
Model: MA Audio HK401SX
Hard Kore Series 1800 Watt 1 Channel High Performance Class
X Car Amplifier
1 x 1800W RMS @ 0.5 Ohm Mono
1 x 1200W RMS
@ 1 Ohm Mono
1 x 650W RMS @
2 Ohm Mono
1 x 500W RMS @
4 Ohm Mono Fully Unregulated MOSFET Power
Supply 2 Ohm Stable @ Mono 1 Ohm Stable @ Mono 0.5 Ohm Stable @ Mono
if you have 2 12s just bridge them and you will have 650wrms at 2ohm running to them or one sub at 4 ohm 500w rms ps they should pump iam running 2 12s with just 360rms at 2ohm and they do the job good luck
i beleive they have to be the same amps.an i think they have to be able to handle being strapped together.id look into getting new amps to run it elemental deisgns i know u can strap them together an controll them from the master amp.i dont think alpines handle 3ohms that good either.im going to check a few things an see if u can strap them two amps toghter.if u need more help email me email@example.com
That amplifier is 900W x 1 @ 2ohms.
If your subs are 4ohm SVC wired Parallel, resulting in a 2 ohm load, each sub will only see 1/2 of the rated power. (450W ea.)
Your gain (sensitivity) setting should be between 75% and 85% to max. You will be fine.
Sounds like one of two problems: either your subs are beginning or have gone bad, or you amp is going bad. What size power and ground wire are you using? You should be using at least a 4 gauge for both. Also what impedence are you running with the amp, ie; 4ohm mono, 2ohms stereo, etc?
Sometimes problems like this are caused by tiny strands of wire in the amp. These can cause catastrophic amplifier failure. If you pull the cover off of the amp, you should be able to see the strands (if they're present). If that's not the problem, you should send the amp back to PG for repair.
Before you pull the cover, completely disconnect power from the amplifier.
