I run No Name

Post by Mauldropper454 » Sunday, 28 August 2005, 7:31 AM

I run a 3lb. *Censored* driving a 8lb. *Censored* driving a 32lb. *Censored*. Sometime I take the 32 pill out and run a 3000 tube in front if the 3x8. I get around 12,000 to 14,000 rms bird and around 30,000 to 35,000 peak bird And I do drop the *Censored*. I built the 3 and the 8pill. Stickman AKA Mr DaveMade and I built the 32pill. Stickman and Dave from the real Dave Made in N.J. built the 3000 tube box at Daves shop with me sitting back in all, watching two masters at work. as far as I know there is no one better Dave and Stickman. O ya don't want that Dave Made Junk comming out of N.C. LOL. I use a General Lee Radio with a 227swing kit to dive it all.

I love my 515 Big Boy. 32 pill, but haven't had the snot to run it in awhile. I sold my big mobile, and 16 pill is all I can run at the moment. DaveMadeNC are awesome boxes, don't be fooled! The real Dave hasnt built a amp in 11 yrs, but his company is still alive and well in NC. If ya bought a DaveMade 15 yrs ago, you get the same exact amp these days. Not a spray painted fake! (((And IM FROM NJ!))

I have heard a lot of good things about Fatboy and Davemade amps. That maybe the way I go when I go up wattage. My problem is my 2005 Dodge Dakota doesn't have much room under the seats. So I need to come up with a plan B. Thought about putting in the center console, plenty of room but no air to keep it cool in the console. So I need to think of something. Any suggestions?

What sort of superpill are you testing out? I run their boxes too and they rock out, a lot better than the xforces I used to use. Read my sig for what I run...Superpill all the way, they got my vote! Beaver (main guy) said that they got picked up by ALA (http://**NON-SPONSOR LINK**) to sell amps thats pretty cool too for a couple small time local boyz (website url deleted)

The Superpills have worked very well so far. They just need the test of time. The workmanship looks quality.
The Palomar 450s and KL 500s run very very hot; within 10 minutes they are too hot to touch. It may help a little to put a fan on the outside.
