Well, my house only supplies 1500 Watts of power besides the laundry room. Its legistically a bad ides to even push more than 1kw RMS out of a such when my computer pushes about 550 Watts gaming, with decent speakers is 100 Watts ems or so times 5, then in the summer, I have a window unit AC on, in the winter, a 900 Watt radiator... with 1kw in a sub, I'd kill my breaker every day I played dubstep.

Quality bass matters a lot to me, but I plan on doing a custom build for my speakers. What do you guys think about fiberglass enclosures vs MDF?
I guess ill get some new silk domes, then attempt to find a way to make my bx5a's battery powered and test fiberglass enclosure on that, it should be fun to get some sexy curves in the iPod dock, which will actually be USB, RCA, ad 3.5mm available, USB charging, computer cord lowered and self charging.
Basically, all I need to do is figure out how to make it battery powered and find a mini USB charging pre amp that works off iPod, phones, flash and external drives, has RCA, an auxiliary. The fiberglass will be cake.
A crossover will not be needed, and I will really make the plate amps. Can anyone help me with links to learn what I need to learn?
By the way, that custom build will be before what I plan to build later, when I learn more. Ill use my velodyne for a while until I can get better. I might use mg mbquarts car amp hooked up to speakers for a while too because my NAD T751 is dead now.
In anycase, why would I need more than 120db? My velodyne without the servo working at my friend's house party made pictures fall off his wall with clean, tight bass.Edited by coreyL - 5/1/11 at 11:50pm
