    power acoustik amp HELP

    i got soundstream rw 12 (600rms"1200w") and power acoustik ovn 4 "1200w" amp , and (2) soundstream rbt 653 (100rms) speakers,
    and my bass isn't that much, i think i need to adjust it better and i don't know how ..
    should i have the amp LPF, HPF, or FULL?
    cause when im trying to configure it sometimes the speakers can only be heard, and sometimes only the subwoofer

    Re: power acoustik amp HELP

    the 2 ch that you have running your 6.5's should be set to hpf @ around 100hz or so.

    The 2 that you have bridged for the sub should be set to lpf @ around 80is hz or so.

    To be honest, that amp *may* give you about 60 wpc @ 4 ohms and you would be lucky to get
    200 bridged.
    That particular amp just dose not have the umph to run a sub IMO. Or at least yours, it may
    do better with something "smaller" and more efficient

    He's saying the 2 channel AMP that's running the speakers.

    HPF for speakers

    LPF for sub

    Yes for new amp

    NO. we know what you are running. YOur not the first person to use a four channel amp that way.
    You will wire it up and get 2 chanels @ 100watts rms at 4 ohms. and that is probly going to be even less according to the volume levels
    When you bridge the rear channel you will only get 250watts rms @ 4 ohms. and that will probly be less as well. And it will definately be less than your recomended 600watts rms for that subs. (I assume you only have one sub?)(I hope)

    If you bridge that amp and run it at 2 ohms it might get hot and shut down. With a dual 4 ohm sub, the only wiring options you have are 8 ohms and 2 ohms and that amp doesnt say it is 2 ohm stable in a mono bridge.. So, what I suggest is that you go buy a better amp for your sub.

    sub specs
    Sensitivity: 84 dB
    RMS Power Range : 600 Watts
    Peak Power Handling: 1200 Watts
    Impedance: Dual 4 Ohm

    Low Frequency response: 30 Hz
    High Frequency Response: 400 Hz
    Diameter: 12 Inch

    amp specs
    Gothic Series 4-Channel Car Amplifier
    RMS Power Rating:
    4 ohms: 100 watts x 4 chan.
    2 ohms: 125 watts x 4 chan.
    Bridged, 4 ohms: 250 watts x 2 chan.
    Max power output: 1200 watts
    MOSFET power supply
    Pulse width modulation circuitry
    Remote bass level input (remote level control sold separately)
    LED power indicators
    Bass Boost (0-18 dB bass boost at 45 Hz)
    Tri-Mode capable
    4/3/2 channel operation
    2 Ohm stereo, 4 ohm mono stable
    Preamp RCA outputs

    Low level inputs (200mV-8V)
    Variable high-pass filter (40-250 Hz, 12 dB/octave)
    Variable low-pass filter (40-250 Hz, 12 dB/octave)
    Frequency response: 10-30,000 Hz
