I was just wondering if someone could give some insite on how bad clipping is. I have two Infinity Perfect Kappa dvq's and my amp likes to clip. Will clipping damage these subs at all. I'm just curious what i can get away with.
Basically clipping is when the top and bottom of a wave is cut off. Amps will do this when they cannot provide enough power for a hit. By the way I reset my gains, and the system is sounding alot better. Your right the gains were way to high. Now if fact i can even hit harder than what i would normally clip with before. I even have it so well tuned that If i even wanted to clip i would have to were ear plugs because the clipping point is so much higher. Thanks for the simple but good advise guys. I have asked this question before, but everyone told me that i need a cap, which when i add more to my system ill get, but for the meantime this is much eaiser, and cheaper.
i dont know if my sub is clipping but..i have a 10' kenwood sub.(DB+) and when i put it loud i hear a high pich sound if i put my ear near the sub..could it be the power wire?..if not how could i put it loud without hear'n that damn noise?
if this will help,i'll put wut i have...
SUB:10" 1000WATTS AMP:1000WATTS (digatil) ..and the power wire is 8 gaug..is that big enough?
