There's a lot more power available with constant current hence the necessity for thicker wires.

Err, no.

AC is AC. DC is DC

10V RMS (Root Mean Squared) AC, has a peak of 14.14V (10x (Square Root Of two))

Thicker wires for DC is a function, generally, of losses in cable. AC, especially HT (over 11KV) is used in grid level distribution, as once every 1/100 sec, the voltage is 0, so no loss!

AC on thin cables, is cheaper than DC over fat cables, at grid level.

mr diesel allegedly commited suicide when he found out his invention was going to be used in weapons [submarines i believe was the main idea dont quote me tho was at least a week ago i saw the bbc documentary lol] i may have misremembered or have been misinformed on this tho.

i need to look into gennys more as it goes because altho everyone i know is using much more amps on a much smaller unit than i want to use id rather nmot follow them lol
If you want people to feel the bass then a reflex design is probably best as you get the most air movement per decibel from those.      errrrr yes wtf?

We should just run it with my generator first just to see what it actually pulls mark the distro I made has voltage current and hz so u know if it's spazzing out or pulling too much and can just turn the amps back a bit I think it's the best plan so we know the real power consumption then can see what we need so got a bit of headroom.

its the amps its pulling that we want to see [assuming the voltage doesnt start to drop]
