Default cactus k9 is more than expected

just powered the system up for the first time time since i got back from deployment. im running 4 hdc3 12's at 2.4ohms on a cactus k9 and was worried about the load being so high that it would have problems. just the opposite. with the gain maybe 20% of the way up the hdc3's are just about maxed out. this amp produces way more power than i expected.

i still have to finish the install so once everything is together ill post pics. vid if i can.

Those subs shouldn't be maxed out at that nominal or gain setting...

Box specs?

box was 10.24cuft after displacements. i installed more internal bracing when i installed the cf dust caps and havent redone the math on it yet. without doing the math im thinking roughly around 10.1ish. without qeustion its more powerful now. today i played around a little with tuning and it caused a small crack in my dash. the wiper blades are jumping close to an inch from the windshield. another thing that i noticed that is very clear to hear is its alot cleaner sounding bass now with this amp. im going to start working on the engine and tranny tunes tomorrow. after those are done im taking it for a 6 hour road trip. so everything is about to get some time put on it.

You sure they are maxed out? Are you playing below tuning much? Either way it goes sound like you are enjoying it, and honestly that's all that matters! Glad you are happy congrats!!! Hdc3s are Mean!
