I have a pare of infinity component's and wen you turn the it up they sound like they are distorting on just the s's. Like in a song wen the say a word that has a s in it it sounds more like sh insted of an s. Hope that made sense. Could I have the treble turned up to much or what?
I hope it isn't clipping! I don't know if this matters or not but if I am listening to it wen it is doing it, then I turn the treble down and it almost stop's it. I would leave the treble down, but the treble is turned down so much that it is no longer loud anymore, and defeat's the purpose. So maby it is the hpf?
Which Infinity components are they? Also, how do you have them installed?
I have the exact same problem with my Polk DB650, the "S" sound more like shisssss. I'm not using and AMP yet but I have ordered one hoping that it will make a diference. If not I'm planing on returning the speakers and get another brand.
I didn't buy them my dad did, and I can't find out what they are. I will keep looking. I had them installed at a shop, if that is what you are asking? Is there any to tell witch component's they are with out have the box or anything?
Look at the crossover. It'll say the series, it'll be either Reference, Kappa, or Kappa Perfect. By install, I meant the location of the drivers themselves, such as tweeters being in A-pillars, dash, etc.
They are in a chevy extended cab, and the 6.5 is on the bottom of the door, and the tweeter is like where the windo and door lock switches are. Just a little down from them! I can't explaine it that good... so if you understood that, you are a genious:-)
The truck is a 1998 1500 z71 if that gives you any idea, and I will check to see what component's they are! Thank's for all the help!
The crossover comes before the speakers, you'll need to trace the wires from the amp to the speakers to find them. If it was professionally installed, I'd hope they didn't install the crossovers in the door without making some form of drip shield.
I'll attest to the drip shield since my pass door crossover was corroded and ugly. It cuts in and out and the dealer that did the install had no drip protection at all. I'm replacing and adding a shield. Whats the best way to do this? Sorry about hijacking your thread.
My speakers are the INF60.5cs Kappa's! I looked it up on the website where they were bought!So I don't know about the drip thingy! I had them in stolled at ultimint electronic lol or how ever you spell it:-)
First off, the crossovers (if you find them) allow you to cut the tweeter by 3 db. You should try that and see if it helps. If that doesn't produce the results you want, experiment by either moving the tweeter closer to the mid, or angling them a little away from your ears, more off axis. Reverse the tweeter wires as well, it can help by a large amount by making the drivers blend together better(depending on install). Your treble may very well be turned up too high, and it is likely frequency specific. If your equalizer offers it, try turning down the treble in the 5khz-8khz range and see if it helps. It may also be upper midrange, which is around 2-3khz, but since you said turning the treble down helped, I'm assuming it's the tweeter.
The crossover has a -3db setting, meaning it adds resistance so that the tweeter is 3 db quieter. All you do is move the tweeter positive wire from the normal + terminal to the -3db terminal. It'll tone down the tweeter a tad. If I remember correctly, that Pioneer head unit has a 3 band parametric EQ and also separate bass and treble controls. Try setting the Parametric treble center frequency (I'm assuming you know how to do that, if not, it's in the owners manual) to around 8khz and start from there. Turn down the treble by a certain amount (whatever produces good results) and then adjust the Q it to your liking. If 8khz doesn't work, then set the treble control (EQ-EX function) to 6khz, and adjust from there. With those settings, you should be able to get results you'll like. I recommend you try the other stuff first, though.
