I have 4 sony xplod speakers on a 4 channel sony xplode amp and 2 kicker cvr12's on 2 sony 2 channel amps. the subs pound in my trunk but the bass on the sony speakers suck. i have to keep it on -5 or it gets distorted when i have it up. Could this be because of the amp (XM-554ZR) or the speakers which are XSV1642A and XS-V6942A. I was thinking about replacing the sony 4 chan. amp with a kicker 4 chan. Do you think that would make the bass sound better or do you think it is the speakers?
OUT OF ALL HONESTY I WOULD NEVER BUY ANY CAR EQUIPMENT FROM SONY...TO BE HONEST THEY JUST PLAIN S*U*C*K(NOT TO BE RUDE)
U SHOULD COMPLIMENT UR CVR'S WITH ANOTHER AMPLIFIER MAY BE JL OR PG OR KICKER OR ECT...AND IT AS FOR UR SPEAKERS TRY GETTIN SUM FOCAL, RAINBOW, POLK I THINK MAKES GOOD ONES OR BOSTON AUCOUSTICS...AND A BETTER AMP FOR THOSE...IM NOT TRYIN TO BE DICK BUT ITS JUST SONY FLAT OUT IS LIKE A TRASHCAN WITH A VOICE COIL ON IT
so if i got a kicker amp for the sony speakers do you think the bass would be better on them cuz the sony amp sucks. I dont know if its the amp or the speakers though that make the bass distorted. this is for just the front and rear speakers not the subs cuz they hit hard
BUY KICKER AMP AND NEW SPEAKER LIKE THE ONES I MEANTIONED EARRLIER....FOCAL, POLK, RAINBOW, BOSTON AUCOUSTICS, AND SO ON AND TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH IF U BUY A NEW AMP FOR THE SAME SUBS U WILL PROBABLLY GET MORE OUTPUT FROM A BETTER BRAND AMP.....WUT ARE UR AMPS RATED??????(RMS POWER AT WUT LOADS..LOADS ARE IN OHMS IF U DIDNT NO??)
both of them are running at 500 rms x 4 ohms 1 of them bridged on each sub. There already wired at 4 ohms so i didnt want to get another amp and have to wire it at 2 ohms to get the same power. also all the reviews for this amp are good and it makes my rear view mirror fall off so i dont know if the amps i have on my subs are bad
ON A GOOD DAY U ARE PROBABLY GETTIN 300 MYBE 400 TO EACH.....LOOK SONY IS OVERRATED WUT I MEAN BY OVERRATED IS THT IT SAYS IT PUTS OUT MORE THN IT REALLY DOES...NOW UR PROBABLY THINK IM LIEING BUT IM NOT IF U BUY A GOOD AMP FOR UR SUBS A DECENT 1 CHANNEL AMP BRIDGE THM TO GET THE MOST POWER OUT OF THM U WILL AND I MEAN WILL HEAR A DIFFERENCE... FROM WUT UR TELLING ME IM GUESSING THE RMS ON THE CRVS ARE 500 CORRECT???WELL BUY DECENT 1000 WATT AMP...SUCH AS THE JBL GTO1201.1 JL 1000/1 OR MAYBE THE PG 1200.1<<<<<probably>>>>>U WILL GET THE AN IMPROVED PERFORMANCE WAY IMPROVED.....BUT IF UR RMS ON THE SUBS ARE 250 TRY THE JL 500/1 OR THE PG 600.1 OR THE ORION 600D ALL THESE GOOD CHOICES...HERES A METAPHOR I HAVE HEARD BEFORE "U WOULDNT PUT A PINTO ENGINE IN A FERRARI WOULD YOU...WELL UR NOT GUNNA PUT A P.O.S. AMP ON GOOD SUBS WOULD YOU...WELL THTS MY INFORMATION OR 2 CENTS. HONESTLY IF U THINK THIER LOUD ENOUGH KEEP EM AND AS FOR UR SPEAKERS BUY NEW SPEAKERS AND AN AMPLIFIER FOR THOSE SPEAKERS...MY 2 CENTS :o LONG BUT INFORMATIVE
IDK ABOUT KICKER SPEAKERS HAVENT HEARD TO MUCH BOUT THM BUT YES THIER AMP ARE OF GOOD QUALITY.....IF U WANT SUM GOOD SPEAKERS GO FOR FOCAL, BOSTON AUCOUSTICS, INFINITY(DECENT), POLK, RAINBOW, SEAS, OR JUST TRY THE KICKERS....ITS ALL UP TO YOU AND MONEY(PARENTS MONEY )
do you turn the bass up on your regular speakers when you have subs or do you turn it down and have bass from just the subs. i want good bass on all my speakers so the bass will be coming from all around the car and not just the trunk.
do you think having 2 kicker zk350.2 amps on my cvr12's 1 on each bridging them for 350 rms each would be better than having 2 sony xplode xmgt2200 amps bridging them for 500 rms each. so would 350 rms each from kicker be louder than 500 rms each from sony.
