Just set my gains BUT.....
I followed the jl recommend steps to set my gains and my front and rear speakers sound great. My sub is not as loud as I was hoping. According to the jl tutorial on gain setting I am looking for 31.6 volts for my sub channel. Here is my issue.... with my gain set allllll the way down (not even turned up slightly) the volts read 32. I figured this means I did not need to turn the gain at all.
My speakers way over power my sub so I turned the gain down on them after properly setting them both to 20 volts and that helped a little.
If I turn my gain about a fourth up it improves my bass dramasticly.... But I do not want to ruin my sub. Any advice?
Listen to Hip-Hop/Rap especially when its Chopped&Screwed, classic rock, hard rock, and most electronic
