mclaren, I guess is the strobes (depending on their wattage) would be the most power hungry but my expereince is mostly with strobes that are used as part of stage lighting.

Maybe you can turn off the "chirtmeas tree effects" when you want to turn up the music.

Stiffening caps will help primarily with the bass amp (Blau 150W).

ya naveen u guessed it right,the strobes do pull out a lot from the battery as these strobes are as good those used in stage lightning..btw if u ever happened to see a disco on wheels in bangy rest assured its got to be mine ..so just pull over the christmas tree on wheels and maybe we can have a chat..

Just make sure not to drive near the airport. you'll confuse the pilots.

Add a stiffening cap in parallel to your power circuit. It will help all the amplifiers.

Eg if you are using 1->4 distribution blocks the three outputs are taken by your amplifiers in both positive and ground. Attach cap's +ve and -ve with the fourth output of the both distribution blocks.

it starts with "Paaneesaaa, ramaramarama", repeats "ramaramarama"
then breaks into
"Main hain Disco, Tum Hain Disco, ........Duyniya hain ek Disco".

and actually the chorus goes "Disco'82....Disco'82, na na na", and then after 4 or 8 beats comes "Paaneesaaa, ramaramarama".

the song contains the lyrics "mere sapne" beyond that i did not understand one word. it was a female voice wailing and some "Ma Baker" type male voice.

one english phrase in the song - sone one says "come on" about 3 min in.

so there! I can use google too!

they are both good amps and they'd be fantastic if sued to drive 4 component speakers and 1 or 2 12"/15" woofers.

hhmm..now now..navin u giving me ideas..
so u suggest to go for two pairs of components..one pair on the front doors and the other on the rear mdf tray..
and the only reason i decided to go for a 10'' sub and not a 12'' is purely the space factor in zen..the rear mdf tray will be so low once fitted that it might virtually touch the sub enclosure(the enclosure of a 12'' ought to be bigger than the 10'' right)..ur views..

Hey Navin,

Considering he's calling for the amps from Singapore wouldnt you recommend some other brands which are better then Pioneer. Plenty of them available, Alpine, Earthquake, Rockford , Soundstream, Orion etc.
