Thanks all! I'll try a -3db tone. So basically I could even do a -5db tone and still I would never experience clipping?
Say I set my gain to get the 40v AC that I'm shooting for, with a 50hz @ -3db tone. You're supposed to use 75% or so of HU volume correct? So that'd be like 38 out of 50. To make it simple I'll just use 40 out of 50. Does that mean I should never exceed 40 when listening? Can I listen AT 40?
Sorry guys, somewhat noobie here but you have to learn somehow. First time setting the gain myself.
145.18 @33z... with less than 500 watts!
While the AP is only marginally better than your old XPlode, was the Sony a 2 ohm or 4 ohm amp? I don't know much about them. If it is, you were probably getting more power @ 4 ohms with the Sony. Whereas the AP is onyl doing what... maybe 300-400w on a pair of 8 ohm subs?
I would suggest you double check the phase again though. Just because they are moving similarly, doesn't mean they are in phase. Just unhook one sub and see if it get louder.
