NVX Boost Subwoofer upgrade - installed

Curiosity killed the cat, I wanted a bit more bass.

Installed the NVX 1,000W amp this weekend. To add a layer of safety I also installed a manual switch for the amp turn on lead and can fully disable the amp when not using. This should keep the 12V battery healthier.

Sounds amazing, hits much harder. Need to trace down some new rattles. 😂

Don’t happen to be in SoCal do you? Looking for an installer so I can take the plunge!
 
Sorry, out east in central Ohio and only do this for fun.

Any competent shop should be able to do this. Other than connecting power wires under the seat and not going overkill with the amps there is really nothing special about the Tesla install.

Another user here on the boards added an additional layer of safety and used a 12V trigger that only has power when someone is in the drivers seat. Pretty slick.
 
I have the nvx enclosure & sub but wanted more power. I went with the AudioControl LC1.800. It has the built in line level inputs LC2i. I got a warning right away once everything was plugged in. I used the speaker level turn on option (GTO). For people that are worried it doesn't harm the vehicle. At first, I would pop the trunk & turn off the (GTO) switch when leaving the vehicle, but now I just installed a rocker switch up front on the side of the center console. If i forget to turn it off, i will either get a warning in the morning, which i will do the reset (10min) super easy, or I get lucky & there is no warning. Its all randomn. It is a really easy install. If anyone needs help in the Seattle area just message me.

That’s awesome. I have been turning off the toggle switch and so far no warnings at all. The key seems to be preventing high amp draw when not in the vehicle or driving.

I love it! I’ve had mines installed since February with 0 issues and sounds amazing I didn’t put in a switch and have never gotten any messages but seems logical to have just in case. Also I still have no battery issues and I pound this setup daily and twice on tuesdays lol. If anyone is on the fence, reach out I’ll send videos if it makes you feel more comfortable but the NVX1000.1 is my “go to” now.

Are you running 2 10’s @ 1 ohm or a single 10 @ 2 ohms?
