Autotek & CDT audio
 
So, here is what I am thinking for building my system.

Autotek SS-350.2 amp, $149.95 from thezeb.com

CDT Audio CL-61T, $149.95 from thezeb.com

http://www.thezeb.com/p-CDT-Audio-CL...tem-109415.htm

I will use the head unit I pulled out of my old car, an older Alpine unit. I dont remember the model. It was $200 3 years ago when I bought it.

At some point in the future, I may add a 10in sub, nothing crazy, just to add a little umph to the bass.

Thoughts? I haven't heard any Autotek amps, but it is full MOSFET circuitry and I have heard good things about the amps. For $150, it seems like a great amp. Are there some other amp brands I shoud take a look at? And no, not interested in cheap crap (Sony, Bolt, Rockford, you get the idea).

well i dont know anything about the other company you mentioned, but the stereo shop that i used to work at sold Autotek, and i ran some of it in my car for a while, and it slams. the SS series is the basic entry level stuff but its still true power, none of the sony, pioneer bull of 1000 watts but its really 500

well anyways autotek = the good

Yeah, I use to carry Autotek years ago and it was the thing to have. I don't know much about it now.

autotek was bought out by maxxsonics last year. maxxsonics owns hifonics, crunch, and now autotek. they aren't the awesome cheater amps of back in the day, but they are still good amps for the money. their subs are pretty good as well. i had a mean machine 12 that lasted over a year of my abuse, which was pretty good seeings how most subs didn't last 2 weeks during that time of my audio destruction;)

yea, we took a mean machine 15 and plugged it into the wall literally, which is about 1800W @ 40hz and it never blew, its funny plugging cheaper subs into the wall and watch them shoot flames :lol:

walls are 60 hz, or at least that's what they say. i've never checked it myself, though. but i have plugged a few subs in, just for shits and giggles.

here's theoretical power break down from 110 volts:
1 ohm = 12,100 watts
2 ohms = 6,050 watts
4 ohms = 3,025 watts
8 ohms = 1,512.5 watts

wattage = (voltage x voltage)/resistance

course you'd have to be careful what breaker you plug it into. you'd theoretically need a 110 amp breaker to plug a 1 ohm sub into the wall without blowing the breaker (course you'd probably blow the sub first). 2 ohms would need 55 amps, 4 ohms would need 27.5 amps, and 8 ohms would need 13.75 amps. anyway you look at it, i don't recomend doing it unless you know what you are doing and have a fire extinguisher handy :thumbsup:

Yes, 60hrtz is what 110AC is. I do it all the time with my demo sub. The people are just amazed on how well the subs pound!
