XC audio advice
Alright I have my amp sitting at the house and ill be putting it in when I get home on the 27th. Actually ill probably be getting some quality time with the wife on the 27th, ill be putting it in on the 28th. My question is has anyone ever put a lightning cap (capacitor) in the fairing on an XC? I have an extra .5 farad sitting in my closet at the house, and im putting in the Soundstream PN4.1000D (140 rms per channel @ 4 ohms) so im not sure how power-hungry this amp will be. I do have a brand new battery, and it lives on a tender, just trying to get some educated/experienced opinions.
My next question is more curiosity than anything else. I have the polk audio 5.25s mounted in the lower fairing (used a shower drain for a grille template), and kicker 6s mounted in the factory locations. I bought a set of Power Acoustic tweeters (rated at 200 watts) and im thinking about putting them in too. If you were me would you try and mount them in the factory grills, or would you go behind the grill since they arenít waterproof (I donít ride in the rain if I can help it). I have a decent idea to keep the amp dry (I think/hope). Also would you hook them in before the amp, or hook them in amplified? Im wondering what it would throw the ohm load to. The amp is supposed to be 2ohm stable, but im not sure how its going to do running one side at one ohm load, and the other at another. I wonder how long its going to take me to upgrade the speakers to 4 polk 6.5s (donít tell me about ARC audio and Hertz, I know theyíre awesome, but I will jam a razorblade in my urethra before I spend $400 on two speakers for my motorcycle).
