I from time to time ask questions on here but generally no one ever answers them...but anyway I will try again anyway...I have a two kicker cvr 10 inch subs with dual 2 ohm coils. My question is why do my speakers cut out when they hit. The amp is a kenwood kac-8152d. It only does it when i put a cd in a turn up the volume it doesn't do it on the radio. I have a 99 f-150 reg cab so i don't know if its due to the enclosure or what i don't have alot of room to work with. It just sounds like the cd player is skipping or something. I don't know any help would be appreciated.
well what head unit do you have? you want to match your HU's pre out voltage to your amps input voltage. as far as HZ you want to run your low pass x-over and set it to 80 hz is a good starting point. some people go up to 100 some as low as 60.
i have a kenwood kdc-mp228 hu, how do i match? and for the thermal protection it doesn't seem to be going into it the red light glows the whole time... when ur amp clips does it cause all the speakers to act as if the cd player skipped if so that is what it is doing
aight drunkbob, i went out and took the cover off, and i got LPF Frequency(HZ) knob which consists of 50,70,100,and 150. And, a Input Sensitivity Knob(V) with 4,3,2,1,.5,.3,and .2 max.. and a ISF switch with 15HZ-25HZ and a Phase switch 0-180 degrees. so explain what i need to do with all that to make it sound best, remembering i have reg. cab truck with tiny boxes behind the seats.
set the LPF to 70hz and the input sensitivity to 2. dont think the ISF comes into play since you are just running a sub off the amp (not speakers), and im not sure about the phase switch... what were they set at when you first took off the cover?
set input sens. to half way up at most. set LPF on, and to 60-80Hz range set phase at zero (0) set subsonic filter to whatever your box is tuned to if it's ported. turn off any bass boost circuits. all set
yeah well i set the gain to 2 volts and now the speakers don't hit hard at all, but it did cut out almost all of the clipping...Any suggestions on a box build or something better for a reg. cab truck? or do i need to get a hu that has lower pre-out voltage?
glasswolf...you said cut off any bass boost circuits? do u mean the remote bass boost? when i turn it all the way down u can't even hear the speakers that much...or did you mean to just unplug it all together?
