Nope. Sometime in the last 6 months she has moved jobs and i havent seen the car since :(
All the CRXs for sale here are imported 4 seaters, might as well buy a civic :laugh:

Ya know here they just let you fold down the back seat, or swap it out for the 2 seat interior.
People are such whingers about rules in Oz, it really is refreshing to come here and not have to deal with it.

Yep, well DB Drags in Oz has gone downhill BIGTIME since Angelo gave it up.....the new owner is a rule master and very strict. :(

The MEA format of "Bass Battle" seems to be more popular nowadays, the rules are relaxed and there's no fee for holding a sanctioned comp!

I'll keep searching, gotta be a nice stock CRX lying around somewhere, :laugh:

I think he checks your compliance plate? :unsure:

I have done some further mods to the box and added dual 0G runs to the D3. Will whack it on the meter tomorrow night and see if i cant do 150 from this D3 :)

Or make it belch smoke ? :P

Didnt get the chance.....i sorta messed up and blew the deck in a VE Clubsport (Holden Commodore)....been trying to "rectify" the situation :(

TBH, this D3 has been rock solid at 0.7 daily. I crank it for over an hour at 3/4 volume almost every day, the sub and amp both get too hot to touch and start to smell a little, but they're all good ;)

Want me to send you pix of my burnt out D3 ? :)

Nah its all good, this D3 is rock solid......not many amps can take 0.7 daily and never go into protect or smoke, i actually think its gained some with the dual 0g inputs, i have purchased a 1000A true RMS clamp meter and plan to clamp some amps, including the D3 :)

Give it 11V and it'll let the smoke out dont worry :P

Im not silly enough to give it 11v :laugh: Not sure what its dropping to, but with the Optima there and a 140A alternator i dont think its dropping below 12 TBH.

Clamped it today, still not sure im doing it right but got 2321w, does that sound about right or a little low? I would have thought 3k atleast.

Whats your A & V ?

I always clamp for A, probe for V, and have both on max. hold mode. Never waste time with "RMS" stuff, or W readings 'cos V & A tell you more.

V / A = impedence
A * V = W PMPO
(A * V) * 0.707 = W RMS

Cant remember, it was something like 118V AC and 20-25A AC. I just multiplied the two so i had the PMPO rating, haha.

My multimeter dosent have max hold, but the clamp meter does so i just watch the multimeter. Yes i use the clamp meter for amps and the m/m for volts. I play my peak frequency at max volume (rear door is open though).

Didnt know V divided by A equals impedance.....nice :)

:huh: :huh: :huh: :huh: simple ohm's law mate! :lol:
5 years 2 months ago #175 by Andy
Haha......that ohms law thingy jogged my memory from the old TAFE days (learning my trade). I checked some paperwork i still have and sure enough, ohms law was there.......must have just forgotten, never actually had to use ohms law :laugh:
5 years 2 months ago #176 by amcinstaller
yea I did that at a similar school here. also not sure I ever used it much if ever.
5 years 2 months ago #177 by Tezzating
I didnt learn that at school :P guess I just remember it cos I love this shit haha.

So, what are your numbers?

I dont remember the exact figures, but i'll do another test and record them......it was something like above but abit less i think.
5 years 2 months ago #179 by Tezzating
I would expect a much higher current and lower voltage.. only amps I've ever seen pump out 110V were the JBL BPX2200.1.. Crown 6000 dumped 200+V :P

The D3 should make more like 60-80V, and 40-50A

Here's a pic from the test i did today....





66.8V and 27.9A

This equals the following:

1863w PMPO
1317w RMS
2.39 ohms


Sound right? I would have though abit more power at 2 ohm?
