I have a buddy with 2 12"w0v1's and we just hooked them up in his SVT contour. He has vocals and some other 'higher' pitched sounds coming out of the subs. I am telling him this is not supposed to be happening and if it is not damaging the sub then it is at least limiting it. He says every sub he's heard has done that, which I take for a lie.

Does he need to F with the crossover a bit? Vocals arent supposed to be heard out of the subs lol.

You Hi pass filter is on, or if you have a stock HU your Hi-Lo converter wires are not tapped in right.

set amplifier or headunit XO to LPF (low pass) for subs.
set XO point to 80Hz. Set Q or slope (if offered) to 18dB/octave.

that should clear up any troubles with the subs.

50Hz with an 18dB Q is a bit low if the box happens (as is commonly so) to be tuned to 45Hz.

you set it wherever your crossover is.
on the head unit, the amp... or a separate crossover if you use one.
usually set on the amp itself.

My amp only has a low pass, gain, and bass boost for me to turn....

I'd say it was a simple matter of your Kenwoods just having a higher frequency response than the Rockfords. Could be due to the speakers themselves and/or the enclosure they're playing in.
