right now i got each in 2cubic ft sealed, but it isnt as loud as id like.i just installed them about a week ago and im powering them w/ a kicker kx1200.1, gain is just under 2/3. any suggestions? maybe i just havent turned it up far enough yet, how can i know how high i can turn it up without hurting anything?? im afraid to turn it up too much cause i dont want to damage anything
^^^when i set it that way i can have the gain up pretty far, and after i've set it..for my taste for daily listening i set the EQ on my HU and set some of the bass settings a couple notches up and then it causes it to clip at high volumes...
seriously i think u have got something hooked up wrong, is this your first install?? because my 1 15" arsenal slams pretty good for 1 15 in a sealed box, my rearview wont stay up, lets just say that lol. i mean how loud is it? because the first time i hooked it up i messed up the ohm load and it was really really quiet so u might wanna chack that, but mayeb u just overestimated it, who knows
i've got 1 15" and i think it is plenty loud enough. it's loud enough that you can barely scream over it. port those aresnals, give them more power, becuase 600wrms isn't nearly enough, and make sure you have got a ho alt, good battery, good cables and a big well built box.
i know but guys say they will make windows flex on buildings and im just not getting that, ive been through parking lots, windows down and never set off any alarms, and my rearview vibrates some, but it doesnt fall, i really think i may not be turning it up to its full potential but im afraid to cause i dont want to damage anything, when you are poor like me, you really dont want to blow something you just spent so much on, after all, my system cost more than my car did.
TURN THEM UP! if you set the gains right and didnt max out the BB or anything stupid, you can turn them up to full volume. I wouldnt suggest it full volume all the time but you could do it. you got: -the power from the HO alt -the big 3 -and not overpowering them
are the gains on the amp and hu set properly? and have you tried putting the back seat down to see how it sounds? cars suck for systems, you lose alot in a car, thats why i'm shooting for a small suv here soon. but if it's still not loud enough then i'd go ported and maybe put more power to them.
Just turn it up till u hear distortion (sh!t outta ur subs), if u cant set off a car alarm with ur subs then there is seriously something wrong with ur install, its real easy for me and all i got is a couple of cvrs.....
i turned it up about as loud as i ever have earlier and the subs were comming out about 1.5 cm,from their normal position. the xmax on these subs is 2.5cm, does this mean i can push em harder? is it ok to push subs all the way to their xmax? and is the xmax that ascendant audio gives one way or both?
1ohm, but its actual like .75, bacause i took the digital multi meter to it, after i already it wired , and i measured it at the end of the wires and each sub was 1.5 ohm, so when i put the +s and -s together, it should have been .75, i didnt check it after i wired them together though
