    Long time lurker, first time post'r

    Been lurking around the site for a while now gathering intelligence. Looking forward to spending some time here, extremely knowledgeable crew on the forum! Currently have 2 PL400's i purchased and used for a few years in the early 90's but have been in storage now for some time and looking forward to "bringing them up to par"

    Self proclaimed "newbie" when it comes to working on electronics, most of my technical background has been wrenching on motorcycle race engines.

    thanks for taking me into your forum.

    Greg

    Welcome Greg. Don't think there is a better place for you to be but right here. Good start with the 400's....enough to get you in trouble. Dust them puppies off and get 'em singing is the first thing. Good luck with everything, the fun starts now!

    Love it when a long time lurker joins up, cause they obviously know what sarcastic and and smart-ass birches we are....so Fish don't have to tell em...

    Thanks everyone. Already caught the bug, boards ordered from Joe and DCP has arrived already. One of the 400's getting the full WOPL. Not sure on the 2nd one as the more time I spend on the forum I get the feeling of inadequesy of running a 400 and not a 700.

    That was quick.

    Some of the guys know how you feel on having a small one (they used to get laughed at in the locker room) LOL

    700 and a WOPL kit = good times for all..............

    I can clip a 400 on my corner horns , which some folks say is insane anyway, but I have not clipped a 700 on them. I melt voice coils in the woofers first. Yep, I like physically interactive sound levels....

    Hey...I resemble that remark!!!!

    400 does me fine - no complaints (except from the neighbors). She's just so sweet sounding I see no need (at this time) for more. Personal preference, no knock on the 700 and not saying that may change someday.

    If it's not broken fix it anyway
    Good choice going full WOPL when you get the parts Joe sends you you will be blown away by the quality of the parts that are second to non and the way he designed it and laid it out where everything just seems to flow together is brilliant. Good luck with your build.
