  1. Recently I got a 2006 Nissan 350z (Enthusiast trim) with 250,000 miles (mostly highway). The previous owner was quite the stoner, judging by what we found in the various interior compartments during its first detail. After checking around the car, I noticed that the previous owner, let's call him Chad, had installed an aftermarket audio system and subwoofer. Great right? Who doesn't love getting a little extra in their investments? Well, let's just say that Chad was probably high as a kite when he installed this system. The first thing we noticed was that the subwoofer was set to take all frequencies of audio, not just the low ones. In case you didn't know, subwoofers are specifically designed to handle and play the lower sounds in your music. Alright, we said, maybe that was a little dumb but it isn't a huge deal and we can just fix it real quick. Well, as I was finishing up the installation of my first mod (a CAI) we noticed that something looked a little off by the battery. The wiring for the audio system, to be exact. When we took a look at the wires we found a fuse on the negative wire and absolutely nothing on the positive wire. Anyone who has basic electrical knowledge would know just how wrong that is. I was shocked to find out that I had been driving around with such a dangerous fire hazard under my hood. If something had gone wrong with the wiring there would have been absolutely nothing to prevent my car from bursting into flames. I wish I had taken a picture! Of course, we fixed it and all is right now, but man that was something...
  2. Put together all of the pieces for a 6000W subwoofer setup, however, I need to know from someone that is a little more knowledged in this area whether or not it will work. Here's a list of what I'm buying.. List of Items (4x) 15-inch subwoofers (1000W RMS/2000W Peak) (2x) 3000W two-channel/bridgeable amplifiers (1x) 5/8" MDF Subwoofer box (four holes, supports four 15-inch subwoofers) (1x) 25ft. 0 gauge power cable (1x) 25ft. 4 gauge ground cable (1x) 0 gauge to two 4 gauge power distribution block (1x) 10ft. 4 gauge power cable (from dist. block to amps) (1x) 50ft. 16 gauge remote start cable (1x) Splitter for remote start cable (1x) 25ft. RCA Cables (for running from head unit to first amp) (1x) 4ft RCA Cables (for bridging the two amplifiers) (1x) 10ft Speaker Wire (2.5ft x 4 from amps to subwoofers) (1x) Power Capacitor (I'm not sure what size I need, or where to put it, or how many..) (2x) 3000W Fuse (I'm not sure if I need one 6000W fuse on the 0ga lead or two 3000W after the distributor) Yes.. This is a huge system and you're probably thinking it's expensive.. Well, I'm pulling it off for under $800 (before a decent radio) Do you guys think this will work? I've attached a schematic on how I'm planning on wiring it. Thanks for any suggestions that you guys have. Also, this system is going in a 2002 Pontiac Grand AM SE1. Should I get a second battery for just the subs? Thanks! Also-- If I have four 15" subwoofers that are 1000W RMS and 2000W Peak each (4000W RMS/8000W Peak for the system) and I run 1500W to each of the subwoofers, will I harm them at all?
