Im pretty sure its something to do with his HU settings im not quite sure yet, but ive seen the system in person and it was installed pretty **** well, he just needs to play with it a lil more. Be careful though lol.

ya doesnt look too loud make sure u have the sub wired correctly

GrandCherokee
08-23-2008, 12:08 AM
wiring is all good...idk what could be wrong with that part.
i guess ill just play with the headunit settings...
i just got
Fo and Q bass adjustment and there both on the loudest choice.
Fo=200hz
Q=2.0

and my High Pass Filter is OFF.

Lowered my SSF to about 25hz
and LPF to about 80
Gains are half way.


btw TC2K15X2^^^ will hear it Monday or b4 that so he'll check it out and see if it should be going louder or not.

It does make a little sense...different surround, heavier cone, who knows...but it shouldn't make THAT much of a difference...It seems like you just have alot of settings wrong OP...although ur gettin a little closer based on that vid

...whenever it gets loud it clips-wtf??

thanks for the normal responce
but btw what settings can be wrong...?
amp setting are set-headunit is set...
whenever i put it louder it clips so i just put it a tad lower

grimreper912003
08-23-2008, 04:40 PM
did you try using a DMM to set your gains? Also do you know for a fact you have it hooked up right? Maybe the RCA's are on the rear output from the deck instead of sub out? Just a thought. It should move much more then that.

916Kev
08-23-2008, 04:49 PM
Just take it to the shop.

GrandCherokee
08-23-2008, 07:00 PM
everything isnt set how it should be if its clipping

it only clips when i blast it but it feels like it should be going louder without clipping so ill have friends check it out and then if they think it should be going louder ill bring it in the shop. Better not want alot of $$$. lol

is there any chance thats just how loud its gonna go without clipping?
like any chance lol

edit-vid shows no clippin at all

So I just got off the phone with DJ

just turned my gains up a lil and set my High Pass Filter on to 120hz

idk I guess the vid ***** but you can hear me from a long ways away so its all good lol

GrandCherokee
08-25-2008, 06:46 PM
So yea Ive been getting a lot of compliments especially from people in school, but yea my next upgrade would either by new door speakers or a new box.

I talked to DJ and the only thing that might make my system a lil louder would be a different port size-with the port facing up with the sub. He hooked me up with the new dimensions, its just a matter of time...but I like it the way it is 4now :D

you are a complete ****in idiot. that's all there is to it. im starting to think you are just here to anger the people trying to help you. you dont listen, you are cocky, you know nothing about setting amps up. your box is prolly horribly tuned/designed if you did it. prolly some of the reason your setup ***** right now. that thing should be moving about 2.5 inches. it's moving about 3 centimeters.

but you can be heard from a block away. congrats. you top us all. you could be heard from 5 blocks away if you would listen to us, but no.

enjoy your system.

nice build



It is at its full potential movement + its tuned prefectly fine. Remember its on a AQ2200...yea some are right it could be moving alot more...maybe on a bigger amp.
the main reason that it might not be at its full potential when it comes to loudness is the box...and i know that. And I already talked to DJ about my box and all.

system is tuned fine

fyi: next upgrade would be the box: fyi

GrandCherokee
08-30-2008, 06:26 PM
btw fyi on Da Blow the sub doesnt move as much as in Put On/Lil Wyte
Next vid-main purpose would be sub movement

GrandCherokee
08-30-2008, 07:30 PM
how different would the new box make it sound...
like as in is it worth the $50+ and time

We put alot of time and effort into the box I got now its just that the port could be better...
Also...I have gotten a new battery/alternator and might not till one or the other goes bad

Could it be possible that just what an AQ2200 can do? it is tuned fine

bryan_15
08-30-2008, 07:36 PM
wtf why do you always ask questions people with common sense could answer? out of all the people who told you yes.. you still ask the question would a new box be worth it or how it would sound.... we dont know how excatally it will sound and yes IT'S WORTH THE EXTRA 50 ******* GOD **** BUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GrandCherokee
08-30-2008, 11:02 PM
"Don't believe everything you read on the forum, the only way to know how loud a sub is you have to meter it. How far a sub moves is mostly determined by the frequency played and the box tuning. If you are playing notes at or near box tuning the sub will have very low excursion. High excursion by a sub usually indicates notes/frequency are being played below the box tuning. While this may look impressive it does not mean the sub is louder and the sub is "unloading" which is very bad for the sub.

If you want to find out how loud the sub is have it metered.

You do need to build another box."

can't we all just get along... in gmc's defence the noob could have done alot more reading before buying such nice equipment at the risk of damaging it due to a lack of knowledge, in the noobs defence gmc... cut him some slack for being a newb, just because you have the knowledge doesn't mean its common knowledge even if it is easily obtained

oh i read the whole thread, trust me i'm on your side... i almost posted a rant that would have said something along the lines of *** everyone who posts videos of their subwoofers but never actually show their subwoofers because no one cares how much your **** rattles or your doors move or your roof bounces... cuz its no impressive... i could give a 5 year old chocolate and leave them in a SUV and they would make everything rattle, the roof flex and the doors move

but my point is sometimes noobs will be noobs and its better to cut them slack and teach them no matter how hard it is... then beat them down and have their failure lead to a scuicide with your avatar stapled to their chest lol

thats **** that scares me lol but yea near 100% sure but when i go get it metered sometime soon...im gonna get them to look over my whole system

its simple..take the sub out of the box and look at the wires..if the red ones are connected together and so are the white ones...which i think is the color on the 18s for negative are together then the sub is wired to 1 ohm...also its going to be running off my single 1200d then im going to be getting another so i can run 1400 to each coil..out of all this i honestly think the sub is wired to 4 ohms...thats the only other god **** reason its not moving as much

09-02-2008, 09:22 PM
well i always thought movement doesnt really matter, really depends on which song your playing. anyways the sub will get the loudest when its not moving as much...but yea ill definitly double check on that

GrandCherokee
09-02-2008, 09:24 PM
"Don't believe everything you read on the forum, the only way to know how loud a sub is you have to meter it. How far a sub moves is mostly determined by the frequency played and the box tuning. If you are playing notes at or near box tuning the sub will have very low excursion. High excursion by a sub usually indicates notes/frequency are being played below the box tuning. While this may look impressive it does not mean the sub is louder and the sub is "unloading" which is very bad for the sub.

If you want to find out how loud the sub is have it metered.

You do need to build another box."

Is the amp real hot after you get done playing it? I would do a check of all my wiring to make sure you're not burning fuses or wire. Start with the amp and sub and go from there.

I have 1400 watts total between my sub (1200) and my components (200). I have a Kinetik 1400 battery in the trunk, all of my wire is 1/0 and i still get dimming. (most likely because my battery under the hood is corroded and old as hell, i plan on getting a new one soon)

about clipping...for the record, I've been clipping these MJ's daily for over a month now, no issues, no burning smell, and at the clipped volume they're getting around 1800+ watts, when they aren't really made to handle more than 800 a piece. With the subs facing the trunk, the clipping is inaudible, so its just louder (very much noticeably) than if it was unclipped

clipping isn't a problem if you know what you're doing...the only inherent issues are when its audible (which means it sounds like crap...) or when its enough power to begin with that you start overheating your subs coils, or damaging your amp

and bottoming out is where your VCs are hiting the back plate of the magnet. the hdc3 subs would have to move close two 3 inchs to do that. and well your vids u show us of your aq moving is realy not moving at all.

Those vids didn't really show anything.
Open up the back, and focus the camera on the Subs cone while playing the music that is causing the noise.
But I really doubt it bottoming out. Its probably just something rattling.

yeah the song plays like 27hz. its def bottoming out. mine does the samething on the opening note. but i also keep my ssf at like 10hz and dont play low notes

also to play that note in my car i had to turn the ssf up like half way or so. but then when i played welcome back it wasnt as loud as before so i just put my ssf and dont play put on.

Immacomputer
10-06-2008, 07:29 PM
The lowest that "Put me in the Freezer" song goes is 39hz, "Put On" gets down to 27hz just for your reference.

It sounds like it might be a suspension problem that the HDC3s seem to have that causes excessive noise.

thats what i like to hear...so if i wanna play Put On i should lower my ssf to about 15/20hz

other than that i should keep it at 25hz??

but why didnt make that noise...was it cuz my ssf was to low-or too high

10-07-2008, 07:57 PM
I suggest setting your SSF to a few hz below box tuning as that's what it should be set to.

Playing it loud and hitting freqs way below tuning is NOT good on a sub as the box/port offer no control, so you're basically playing free air...

It's got a slope on it, it's not just gonna analize the signal and go "Opps, 34 hz, i'll completely cut it out"

I didn't here anything alarming. If the VC hit the back plate it's sound like a fking hammer hitting metal or wood. It would be loud and you would know it right away.

If anything the spider is maxing out or its the surround as it moves, or distortion =p.

how are we suppose to listen to songs like put on if our ssf it at around 35hz...

There are a few things you're not understanding.

1) The port on an enclosure will reduce cone movement at, around, and below the tuning frequency for about 1/2 an octave above and below. For 35hz, 1/2 an octave is:

35/4 = +8.75hz

So the subsonic is best set at about 35-8.75= ~26hz. But in reality, your sub may be fine to have the subsonic set lower. Below tuning, the sub is relying on its own suspension for cone control. Some subs have a beefy enough suspension to handle loads of power and some do not. It really depends on the design. The HDCs have quite a stiff suspension and can usually handle playing below tuning to a point.

2) Just because the filter is set to 26hz does not meant that the sub will not play anything below 26hz. It's not magical and can't instantly get rid of any frequency below that point. Instead, it's a roll off of power and so the sub will still play those frequencies but they will be at a lower volume level.


Your problem sounds like it might be the suspension popping problem that many HDCs seem to have and that AQ blames on an improper break in. :rolleyes:

No. That is a bad box design, I don't care if Jesus designed it. The port wall extends too far back into the enclosure and your port area changes at the inside of the enclosure. The port will not be as effective as it could be and you could easily get port noise from it.

I think you would be better off going with a different design. I could crank something out for you if you would like.

oh and the noise i was talking about b4...its only on certain notes...

16" long port in a 17" deep box? not gonna work, bend it 6" from the back like said above. if you keep the port 16" long, then you only need the port wall 10" long, the bend will make up the other 6" difference. Im tired, so correct me if im wrong, i only took a quick look at that pic :hihorse:
