i got a pioneer 770mp and an audiobahn a8000t amp, i was wondering is i should turn the bass boost up on the amp and have the bass low on the HU, or have no bass boost at all and on the HU have the bass up?
turn the bass boost off on both. set the gains correctly and you will get the full 800wrms. dont ever use the amps bass boost but if you want to use the HU bass as a cutoff point you can for example tune it at level say 5/10 and turn it down when you want but i wouldnt go far above 5 then. bass boost is false power. for every 3db of bass boost your asking the amplifier to double its power.
and by the way, the bass on your HU will make your subs sound like crap, you want that real low at all times, lots of times like negative 2. but if your talking about sub level, it should be kept on the level you tuned it at or below.
its cause it can play lower freqencies then when it is at 34hz. you shouldn't do that if your box is tuned at 34hz. you can damage your subs. if your box is tuned to 34 hz then setting your subsonic filter at 30 or 31 hz should be fine.
no i dont know why, but a subsonic filter does not cut off at its setting. example if its set at 30hz and you play a 25hz tone, it just reduces the power to keep form over excursion. with a 34hz tune you can set your SSF at like 28-30hz.
