Just to play it safe I would NOT jump start while charging, It sounds like one would be putting out too much volts/amps ETC and could damage or the even kill the battery.

I have a 12 inch auduobahn 400 watt that is a special edition d jones. what is the best and most efficient way to install it with a jensen 400 watt 2 or4 channel mosfit power amp.


Is it a 2 or 4 channel amp???? Does it have a lpf (low pass filter)??? If its a four channel it prolly wont sound too great. If its a 2 channel you need to bridge sub to amp. Usually its the 2 outside terminals on the amp. Might have a diagram on the bottom of amp

My amp runs from 4 ohms to 8 ohms.it states at 4 ohms it output 2 x 1000 watts or 8 ohms output is 2 x 500 watts.The amp is a pyle pro PDG2000.Does the numbers make sense.If it does how should I run my...


There is simple no answer to a question like this. It's just an amp. There are no tweaks except volume. What are the speakers and how much undistorted power can THEY handle?

Amps don't 'run' from 'x' to 'y' ohms. The spec you're viewing tells you how it acts with loads at those values so you can plan accordingly. Since they don't mention distortion values with those wattage numbers the power specs are meaningless.

ANY amp driven beyond its 'clean' power limits will start distorting and THAT will kill speakers if not the amp itself. Audible distortion and excessive heat at the amp are signs of stress. The best sound and performance will be somwhere below that point.

http://www.pyleaudio.com/manuals/PDG4000.pdf

It's not clear what is represented in the "XXX Total Watts Power" statements on page 6. I'm guessing that would be what it DRAWS in wall power so you can plan where to plug it in without tripping a beaker.

Hence, given that no amp converts all of its drawn power into audio power since a lot of heat is created, the actual usable audio output wattage would be somewhere closer to maybe 40% of the total divided by how many speakers are driven. No reputable manufacturer specs an amp at 'x watts time y channels'. It's "PER CHANNEL all channels driven" that makes any sense for comparison.

If a car can go 150 miles per hour and has 4 wheels is that 4 x 150 for output if it had only one wheel?

I have the "Service Engine Soon" (SES) appearing


IF you are absolutely certain YOU know why the light is on ... and there is no other reason ... you can probably have this code cleared by someone with a SCAN tool ... expect to pay for the service ... and probably pay near what it will cost to repair the problem. When the mechanic clears the code, he or she will have to get enough money to "recover" when you come back in a few weeks and say HE or she DID IT AND NOW MY CAR WILL NOT WORK.

Please don't kill the messenger ... Thank you

I have 2 kenwood 3011 400 watts rms and 12oowatts peak power each 1 is blown and wonderin about upgrading 2 the Hifonic Olympus OLM1612 would this be a good upgrade even thought i only a 400 watt kicker...


yea for sure thats a good upgrade. You shouldnt havebeen able to blow the kenwoods with 400 watts though-meaning that they probably blew from distortion which causes heat(fast) Check your gain on the amp start it out at 1/4 gain and turn up your deck to the point where you can hear distortion from your mids and highs or to the maximum level that you listen to your music at. If you're jamming out at a level that is causing distortion then you will be sending a distorted signal to the amp as well. The amp then amplifies the distorted signal through the subs which overheat and blow. So find the distortion spot and then turn it down just a little bit till it clears up your sound-then adjust your gain on the amp up slowly until you cant hear it getting any louder. Once you have done that you have reached the limit of CLEAN power that you are going to get.Thats where you want to keep it. Watch the bass boost too if you have the bass up on the deck and then crank up the bass boost on the amp it really f's up the signal too. Good luck

SHOULD I GO AHEAD AND BUY A 400 WATT AMP?


All amps aren't created equal. More exspense amps put out "cleaner" power. You need to know what the RMS power rating is for the amp at 8 ohms and 4 ohms. Also, is the speaker an 8 or 4 ohm speaker? How you wire a speaker or speakers (series or paralell) can change the ohms (resistence) which will change the power put out of the amp. Also, I'm assuming you are setting it up in mono?
