I've been in the car audio hobby a lot longer than home audio. My first install was a Roadmaster EQ/booster in my mom's Mazda in 1984.

We drive one car 95% of the time and the audio system was...

I use a Behringer EP-2500. I've turned it off twice this year. Both times I was leaving the house for multiple days. The rest of the time, the power switch is in the ON position.

It's a must. Go for a 2-way design with efficient speakers or even use coaxial car speakers to save money. Ebay has some band name (Pioneer/Kenwood/Sony) speakers for about $25/pair.

I had similar issues with the TC-3000 driver. Using a Behringer Feedback Destroyer I used 5 or 6 filters to bring down a 14db peak at 55hz. It went from sounding like a car audio boom box to an...

Let's say those are designed to work with an amp's 25k input impedance and your amp has 50k. That's like designing a crossover for a 4 ohm driver and using it with an 8 ohm driver. The crossover...

If you go with the MOFO subs, get the dual 4 model so you can wire it to a 2 ohm load and power it with an iNuke 3000.

You can buy an iNuke to power the shakers without any problem. It's just pointless to use it to power your Dayton sub.

I was clear when I said a terminal would need to be installed. A 99 cent model from eBay, a set of 5 way binding posts or a Speakon terminal are all acceptable.

Correct.

You taught wrong. Is your name Tweety? Seriously, it will give your DIY sub more punch. It's not designed to work with pre-built subs unless they are passive models.
