worst case the breaker will pop, if it happens too often change the wire and socket for a 20 amp circuit

Thank you everyone. Just wasn't sure if it would plug into a standard socket.

Is there a single "sticky" post in this thread that consolidates all the knowledge and parts required to either get stable performance (trimmers, pots, resistors, etc.) or quieter operation. I've read about 700+ posts this morning and there seems to enough things to improve or watch out for that it would be convenient to have a consolidated post.

This consolidated post may exist....I just haven't made it through all 4900 posts and was looking for a potential shortcut. I was thinking about ordering two of these - one for a pair of SI 24s and another for 4 x UXL-18s.

I been trying to find where to put my trim pot on here by a picture. Seen a post where supposedly which posts would have it but on mobile its hard to go 2 pages everytime for another 2000 posts to find it. I pmed someone asking for the picture and info. My fb14k after being on continously will start to power cycle. I notice it early this AM and once before. But when i turn off and turn back on later its fine again.

Edit.i got the trim post cellar posted on page 160 and got what notnyt got for the 80mm fan and what cellar got for his 60mm fan. I didnt use resistors for the fans. Didnt need to. My fb14k also has 1 more fan then the fp14000 and i only got enough to change all but 1 of the 60mm fans and found i dont really need to change that fan to 1 of the ones i bought to switch out with.

That should work pretty good.

I would strongly suggest that you buy a fp10000Q for the quad UXL-18, that will give you 2.1kW x4 @ 4-ohms.

Running a FP14000 at dual 8-ohms like that might not be enough power for 4 UXL-18's. That's only 1175watts per UXL with the clone exploding.
If you risk it, you can operate the clone at dual 2-ohm which will give the UXL's 3.5kW each; I would guess that most of the time you wouldn't be north of 8kW out of the 14kW. So that's good, the amp will run cooler.

Don't say we didn't warn you.

Here is what Sanway told me, just thought I'd share the info:
"honestly, our current fp3400; fp6400; FP7000; FP9000 and FP14000 two channel amps are stable on 2 ohms load; our current FP2400W; FP6000Q and FP10000Q four channel amps are only stable on 2.67 ohms load, not stable on 2 ohms load."
Apparently the Fp14k I just bought can do north of 12kW, that is a scary amount of power though for just 1 or 2 drivers to handle.

Also box rise helps. The FB14K manual they sent me doesn't even have 2ohm specs. I don't have the guys email just Anne. I should ask.
