    Here is where i will post all info from my build. Attached are the pics of the build that i currently have. Its a Kenwood Excellon head unit with a Alpine 701 with rux. a zapco i force 4 ch on the sub and the front woofers and a lp 952 on the tweets. Front stage is zapco i force 6.5" and the sub is a DLS reference sweden built 10". Everything is run fully active. Does anyone have ideas of a sub enclosure for me? I will be using the blues 10 Sub off course with the blues 6.5 active set in the door and the tweeter in the same position as they are shown in the pic. i measured up the passenger side footwell and realised that the sub cant fit there so i will put it in the trunk. I have 30" across and 14" in height max. I can play with the depth of the box. I will be using all Stinger Level 3 Wiring ( Signal and Power) with optima batteries. What are your thoughts.

    I highly doubt its a lack of power issue. An amp thermals because it reaches a temperature level that makes the thermal circuit trigger. That means its getting too hot. It has already been mentioned once that Ray can get the 2250 to shut down in one hour. Another user mentioned he has got his amp to shut down. Now here is someone else stating their amp shut off in 40 minutes with no ventilation issues. To me that is fast. As i have stated before, the modified DPS500 will stay running at max level for around three hours and that amp wasn't even designed to run that hard. None of it even makes sense to me. For an amp that is supposed to be extremely over built with parts running at a fraction of their capabilities, you would think the amp wouldn't break a sweat to make rated power. I haven't had this issue yet. However, my amps have had other issues so I haven't had the 2250 installed long enough to even get to the point of tuning. Clearly, if these users are running their amps into clipping for long periods, that can have an affect on the amp going into thermal quicker....as stated previously. However, "SQ Audio" has stated previously that he runs his amps at minimum gain.
