Default A more detailed description of my PT's stereo

We start with the amp. An old school Zapco Z400 C4-SL competiton series built in 1995. Underrated at 200W x 4 channels at 1 ohm and 0.1% THD. I've blown the 2 40A fuses in it before.

This single amp powers 2 Rockford Fosgate P2D2 12's wired in a parallel-series 2 ohm configuration. This allows me to bridge 2 channels to run a 2 ohm load. The subs are in a sealed box with about 1.1 cubic feet of airspace per woofer.

The other 2 channels power a set of Rockford Fosgate PPS4-6 mids in the front doors and P1TS tweeters. The pioneer DEH-64BT is running the 6x8's in the rear.

Being an old school amp, it does not have a built in crossover, and I have an external audiocontrol 24XS line driver/crossover that is 24 db/oct. Being a line driver, it also provides well over 5V preamp voltage.

I'm dying to take the PT to competitions for both SPL and SQL. It's been incredibly loud and clear. If you really crank it I can't even tell what kind of car is behind me.

I've never had any headlight dimming issues, and have an aftermaket 120A alternator when the stock died.
