I'm wondering why it seems nobody uses this little class D amp with its small size and power output? Seems a good match for a couple sets of 2 ohm polks or Kappas. Is this not a good amp?
Let us know how you like it.Looking at the specs, it looks like the stealth is 125x4 @ 2ohm vs the nano at 130x4 @ 2 ohm. Might be worth giving up the 5 watts for size. The stealth is 3" shorter and 1.75" more narrow. Seems like it would make it a better fit and be able to be mounted on top of the radio. Since I have not installed my nano yet, I may order one of these and give it a shot.
if you were running (4) Polk MM651s on it, I guess it was hot. That amp is not designed to run (4) 2 ohm speakers unless you had them wired in series.Thanks for your reply Big_Gary. I did buy one for $98. Since everyone seems to only be using the larger sized soundstream I'm wondering if I shouldn't be looking at a Picasso or tarantula nano. I don't know sh*t about amps so I'm lost. I need a new amp to run the four Polk MM 6.5's in the fairing. Maybe this little guy won't handle it. I took the little PBR 300X2 heater out and put it in my car. That's a hot little somebitch when you're making it work. I know someone has a suggestion.
http://www.crutchfield.com/learn/learningcenter/car/cable_gauge_chart.html?g=710Just got this little st4.1000, could some one tell me what gauge wire to use for power and do I hook it up to both red wires on the input or just one, the book is clear as mud.
I've never hooked up an amp on a bike. But on a car you just have the one power and one ground. With a remote wire. Have you tried just the one power and one ground to see if it powers the amp? (Don't forget the in-line fuses)Here's a picture of the wires for the power connection in the back of the amp for the power not sure if I'm supposed to hook power up to both red wires or just one. And I guess I could use ohms law to figure out the amperage draw but I'm a little concerned about the small wiring going into the amp, looks to me like it's only a 16 gauge wire on the red. Also the book says to use a frame around not the battery negative I've always run the negative from the amp to the battery
That's weird. Not the same on the Nano's. I wonder if the extra power & ground are for connecting an additional amp in line.I'll have to look online, but the 2 red ate the power, the blue is the remote, if you look at the pic of the amp you can see it has 2 power and 2 ground.
