    Haha - wait until this year's project goes together. Will do everything that one does... only louder and in less space.

    Good Lord! Does the madness never end?!

    TBH, I would LOVE to have something similarly batshit insane in my living room. Only I don't really see the wife going for it. SAF=0! Oh the joys of being a single male...

    P.S. I really miss J5.

    End? When one of my tapped horn projects induces ventricular fibrillation, I expect. I've never even heard the upper limits of the one in the video... it gets too loud. It was hard to even get close to it for the video. The new guy is just to see if I can do a better job with the design, and not require 4 sheets of plywood to build it.

    I already have the drivers... a pair of 10 inchers. All I need now is a trip to buy wood and the snow to be gone

    I think her eye popped out right before it even started.

    But that does remind me of one video I saw. Girl was sitting in the back of a van during a show. Subs kicked in and her hair went flying all over the place.

    I believe her eye started moving as he was turning up the volume just after she started lifting her sunglasses. She even reaches up and messes with it before it comes out.

    I believe this is the same guy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JrI28...feature=relmfu

    Using products other than RF because he wouldn't be around to get their shit for free?

    Default You always want to run caps at the highest voltage possible...

    Remember, capacitor size is roughly proportional to C×V, but energy storage is proportional to C×V². For a given quantity of capacitor, you'll do a lot better adding something in parallel with the 400V primary caps than across the 12V rail. I had a computer that kept rebooting when the pool pump started. One beer can sized cap across the PSU primary (yes, I ran the 400V outside the case) solved that very nicely.
