The amp review says it can handle a 1Ω load.


Looked at the reviews on that amp and seen like 20 people liking it and saying good things about it, plus a guy had a pair of audiobahns and says it pounds like a champ, took his trunk lock off. The wire kits seems like a snag of a deal...it's real 0 gauge and not some skimpy crap. The farad was the cheapest I could find...lol was cheaper than a 3 farad.
Sorry to break it to you but you're getting very very shitty equipment if its only 248....good copper 1/0 wiring and fuse holders alone are going to be at least $100....you can get away with copper clad aluminum wire if you want to save money, but its not the best. and i have yet to hear an audiobahn sub that sounds good....also, there's no way that amp is delivering 2600 watts RMS. check around for some of the better 2000 watt RMS amps, and i gurantee you won't find anything under 3 times the price you quoted!! theres a reason for that

i see two 20 amp fuses on that amp....tell me how it is delivering 2600 watts rms at 12-14 volts....

Aren't you a hater today? lol. You didn't even check it out did ya? Probably not. Audiobahns are meant for all deep bass..they're not high range. My audiobahn beat a pair of JL, MTX, and a pair of DB subs. I'm sure you didn't hear a good pair of audiobahns when you are basing your opinion. =( P.S. I'm not spending $2,000 for a sound equip when I can get a good one that does the job at $300.


Oh and the RMS ratings....I don't even pay attention to that...means almost nothing when it comes to speakers...just a fancy term to improve amp selling.

Why in the world do you think you need that kind of power. Are you trying to impress someone? Are you trying to go deaf? Do you have any clue how annoying loud thumping noise is in residential neighborhoods? Get a life! And keep your noise out of my neighborhood!

OK - rant over, I feel better now.

dang michael, if he wants to light his car on fire...

You've got the rms vs peak thing backwards. rms it the number that matters peak is meaningless sales talk. run the system at 6ohms and it'll be happy. hope you have a 200amp alternator.

Sorry to hear of your affliction. Why do you want to make it worse? And don't you understand that your 400 watt statement is irrelevent? I don't care about watts, I care about excessive dB levels and the way it disturbs the peace, and how it is annoying as h#ll. I have no problem with someone wanting to ruin thier own hearing if that's what they wish, but I don't want to be forced to hear it happening. Can't you understand that if If I'm sitting in my home with the windows closed and trying to listen to my own music, and suddenly my walls start to shake, the floor starts to vibrate and the windows rattle, that it's a violation of common courtesy? With freedom of choice comes responsibility.

Lol. I was talking about my alternator amps...not watts. Sorry for the confusion. I'm not one to play my music blasted to the extent of blowing my own windows. I live in Flint, Mi. I know how annoying loud bass can be. I'm using my bass for competition, not constant playing. I guess you're happy that you don't live anywhere near me =P. And I'm not talking professional competition, I'm talking competition among my friends.. like one owns a pair of DB 3s with a 1000 watt sony amp...and his bass is louder than mine...of course it's 12s and is competition speakers. But I want to show him that a small system can beat his. =] and why are you so hating on High dB volumes...you're on an audio forum... lol.

Also when you come up to another car is playing some annoying rap crap. I want to be able to mute them with Dubstep n Techno. =]]

^ I agree. (with bean)

Btw carshateme, I was joking about the peak wattage hence the :/

And I do have subs in my CRV...they compliment the active SQ system I have...and I don't blast the bassssss with the windows down either. There's a difference between wanting good sound and just wanting the windows to fall off the track while sounding like ****.
