The subs are good overall depending what kind of amp you are using. I personally use a ported box for all audiobahn subs.

My brand new Kappa One amp is powering 2 brand new Kappa 100.9w subs at a 2 ohm load. The Ground an Power are both 4 gauge wire. The problem is my amp is just getting so hot that I can only touch it for a...

Sometimes these amps have been known to get hot very easily. That said, I would first confirm the resistance on your speakers at rest is 4 ohms each, so that your amp is seeing a 2 ohm load. Be sure that the smart switch on each sub is flipped to the 4 ohm mode, and measure each separately.
Be sure that you've properly set the filters, gain, and bass boost so that your amp is not being over driven. Your HP filter should be set no lower than 20Hz--most music is never going to go that low so there is no point. A narrower frequency band is always going to be healthier for your subwoofer. The LP filter should be set no higher than 90 to 100 Hz at the most, depending on how much midbass your speakers can handle, so that you don't have too much of a sonic gap between the subs and mids. As for the gain, a good place to start is with your radio set at it's highest comfortable, distortion free setting, minus 25%, then start with the amp's bass boost all the way down, and the gain set to the minimum level at which you can just begin to hear music. Choose a bass heavy track if you ever listen to bass heavy music, so we can prepare for the most stress that the amp will experience. Slowly turn up the gain until you start to hear distortion during heavy bass hits, and back off 20% - 25%. This should be the highest volume you ever push your amp to, and from here, you can ever so slightly turn up the bass boost if you absolutely must, but not to the point of any distortion, if you hear any, back it off a bit.

I installed my eclipse and the only problem im having is when i have the truck key turned forward it sounds good except you cant hear my subs that well and when i start it and turn it up once i get to a...

First off, you need to disconnect your battery immediately.. The reason for the feed back is you have a hot wire touching ground somewhere....probably a large sub speaker cable.....What will happen is the power going from the amp to the speaker or from the head unit to the sub will come into contact with bare metal and feed that current back into the system through the isolated ground. This will either reduce sound, or when the power is high enough, turn from a low hum to a heavy crackle. now if it crackles with the bass, more than likely its in your sub/amp configuration....if its constant or completely random then it could be anywhere in the system. check for bare, broken, or exposed wire.

Just bought 2 12 in d3 dual 2 ohm subs with d5 600.4 amp. Need to know how to wire subs. They were in a box already I assumed they were wire at 2 o When i hooked One up to my amp it hit really for Jus...

what wattage are the subs and amp? if your subs are more wattage than your amp, your amp will blow fuses as cant handle the output to your subs. for example. you have 2 500 watt subs and a 300 watt amp, that is no good as amp isnt powerful enough. if you have 2 500 watt subs you need at least a 1200 watt amp to power them both. 200 watt more than the combined wattage of subs as amps should never be turned up to max as they tend to blow and overheat more quickly. 80% volume on amps is reccomended by installers and manufactures.

Two A2300HCX amp on ONE AW1508X is it possible? Over doing it?

Nothing is too much but surely it's worse and destructive if you don't have enough. If you can bridge the amp to power a single sub that would be the best. So if money is not a factor then having too much will only be destructive once you set it more than it's limits, you'll know when that happens. It will be very annoying or really quiet.

How do I sight-in(zero-in) my handgun(S&W Sigma Series 40 cal.) Factory issue sights, aiming center mass hitting target bottom left.

The problem with this is, the Sigma comes with Fixed Rear Sites. Non Adjustable.

I also have a good buddy of mine that was in the Police Academy who bought that gun for his duty weapon and was having the same problems you are. Hitting Way Low.

Now, another side to this problem Ive heard of is that the Sigma Series has a really heavy trigger pull. And a lot of shooters (More than 20) have come together with the fact that due to the heavy pull, it causes you to pull the muzzle downward as you squeeze the trigger...without even knowing it. Causing you to hit low.

If this is the case, I would take a guess that if you are a left handed shooter, you have too much finger on the trigger causing you to pull left...mixed with the heavy trigger pull, forcing downward. Or a Right handed shooter with the correct amount of finger on the trigger, but such a heavy pull, your pushing to the left. Just another thought for ya.

But from what my research has led me to find, there is no option yet for adjustable rear sites.

Here is a LINK to a website discussing the heavy Trigger Pull causing dropped Bullet Impacts. Read what they say and it might help ya. If you change some things, let me know. Id be interested to hear if it changes your POI. (Point of Impact)

Hope This Helps!

Zx-8400 amp too much for zx-4812?

The amp and sub combo should work fine the subs can really take a crapload of power-i have a neighbor thats running 1200 watts rms to each sub in his caddy and OMG- its sick. Your amp should be pushing around 800 watts rms(continous) to the sub which should do very well-my concern with your setup is that the sub is designed for a vented box- you can use any box u want but im just suggesting that you use a good solid vented box with these subs- my other concern with your setup is that having only the single sub if its a dual coil 4ohm + 4ohm coils then you might run into trouble if you dont have it set up right-by that meaning to get all the power handling capability of the sub you would want to use both of the coils right? well to do that you have to either wire the coils in series or wire the coils in parallel right? In series the coils will yield an 8 ohm load to the amp and youll only get about 400 watts from the amp bridged into that 8 ohm load- on the other side of that if you wire the coils in parallel then the cols yield a 2 ohm load and that could cause the amplifier to become unstable and fry its little guts. All of this is assuming that the amp is made to run bridged at 4 ohms- if it is 2 ohm stable in bridged mode than you have nothing to worry about. Now the popping noise- that sounds like its coming from the amp somehow and just feeding through to the sub-like you ive never heard a sub popping unless its bottoming out and you say its not so its gotta be the amp id say-if it were me id check all power connections especially the ground for the amp . It could be that on the heavy bass notes that your amp is not getting enough juice -throw a 3.5 farad capacitor on the power line and see if that helps your system out-
