How to tell when amp is clipping?
It is a GP3000D-Pro. Would this mean the sound all together stops for a second or two, then starts up again?
I ran a set of RE Audio SE15's on it wired at 1-ohm mono and they were shot after a few months. Maybe too much amp for the subs, maybe not. I have never really blown anything in the past, so it is a bit frustrating. I don't abuse the system that I am aware of. I do have a factory NAV HU going straight to the amp and I guess I could use something to get a better signal out, such as a JL CleanSweep.
Also, the factory HU volume goes to 40, and I have never turned it past 27. The bass is typically set to -2 o -3 on the HU.
Also, on these amps, when using the bass knob, does it override the gain completely? Meaning, does the gain setting on the physical amp even matter when you have the knob connected?
