I use TeslaFi therefore my car goes into deep sleep when idle. The amp only powers on when it sense audio signal. My volume is always up and haven’t noticed any loss in range.Stock amps from any manufacturer are not designed or built to impress. They are designed to do the bare minimum and not break or need maintenance. JL on the other hand is made to crush your eardrums. I have a JL Fathom 12" sub in my Living Room and it can wake up the neighbors.
I'm curious if you notice any appreciable loss in range or additional phantom drain when running the dual sub setup?
For those that are interested here is my bass setup.
JL Audio 10TW3 setup in parallel at 2 ohms
JL Audio 8W3v3 4 ohm
Helix M One X - 400 Watts 4 ohms for the single 8W3v3 or 700 Watts 2 ohms for the two 10TW3
Helix V Eight DSP MK2 for my front speakers.
I am switching between to two subwoofer configuration using terminal block.
Sure here is my album. Tesla Model Y Audio UpgradeNice amp setup! I'm doing almost the EXACT same thing in my Model 3 SR+ right now, using a V Eight and an M One (non-X). Any issues running off the front battery? My M one causes all sorts of errors if I run off the penthouse.
Given how similar the 3/Y are, can you show any pictures of where the power wire comes in from the frunk on both sides? Thanks!

after DSP was tuned I enjoy listening in my car even more. Helix guys from Arizona came out to Cali and custom tuned it. I listen to all master quality on Tidal and it it’s amazing. Tesla stock audio is pretty good but with the amp it’s even more crispy clear vocals to and all the background instruments.
Thanks for sharing. I wanted the Director as well but I couldn’t find a good deal. I wanted to go JL Audio VXI but I was convinced Helix much better solution bc more DSP functions and we wouldn’t need separate OEM integration unit like the JL Audio Fix or Audiocontrol LC7i. I am very happy with my set up and glad I went with Helix set up. I am a JL Audio fanboy and these German amps are very good stuff.Thanks, that helps out a ton! I’ll have to see if I can fish the power through that same grommet. That’s awesome that MSC came out and did that. I plan to have mine final tuned by some folks up here in Portland.

Good to know if I get a Y I can just move it all over. I’m still surprised nobody puts amps in the frunk. I keep thinking that would be a great place to do it. I see you have the URC for your helix. I had one but I got a screaming deal on a Director so now I have to get that going.

To answer your original question about power, not a single issue with power warnings. I pushed the amp with JL Audio W7 13 omg my neighbors were probably pissed, my dash was rattling nutts and not a single power error or warning.
