I don't really think they need to be broken in, just start playing it and it will loosen up on it's own. But then again i've never used these subs so i'm not sure

I'm breaking mine in for sure, not going to risk getting any mechanical noise. If I were you I'd break them in correctly also, put about 20 hours with low volume, and no low notes.

jbizzle
07-30-2008, 07:11 PM
Also, why the low tuning?

Also, why the low tuning?

tuning to 35hz for daily listening is too high for me :D

GrandCherokee
07-30-2008, 07:16 PM
yea im just stickin with the 35hz...but 20 hours of playing time is over a month :(

GrandCherokee
07-30-2008, 07:17 PM
no big reason about the tuning*

JEXTEL
07-30-2008, 08:06 PM
Also, why the low tuning?

because what ppl dont know is this bishes will get LOW in a low tuned box BUT in a box tuned to 40 hertz they do get low and alot louder but not a LOW as a lower tuning..

Its kinda weird what im tryin to say by..hmm

30-35hz they get super LOOWWW

37-42hz they'll get low BUT it will have better SPL

jbizzle
07-30-2008, 08:07 PM
I don't suggest tuning it anything below 38...

38-40 is ideal

mazdakid

play it in your room for 20 hours straight?

They are suggested to be broken in at moderate power levels for 8-10hrs.

This is so each spider can loosen up at the same time.

If you do not break them in properly, the top spider will loosen up quicker than the rest of the spiders.

i had my hd3 12 tuned to 32hz!!!!!! :fyi: and it still sounded good

If you dont do this what would be the result.... what kind of noise are we talking about.... I mean is it going to sound like it's botteming out?

I just got my HDC3 12 in today.....and mine looks sick....i cant imagine the 18".......

should sound nice....i wish i had room for such a sub like that.....lol

07-30-2008, 09:36 PM
sorry if im jacking the tread but.... think i need the full 6-8hrs of break in if im only running a aq1200 to my hdc3 15?

shizzzon
07-30-2008, 09:37 PM
What would happen if you don't break it in...

I wish i remember, DJ told me before, email him he knows.

It's nothing detrimental but i think it's something that could effect the projected longevity of performance for yrs to come.

GrandCherokee
07-31-2008, 01:18 AM
basicall if you blast it righta way...itll sound bad in the long run as in the low notes sounding bad and bad motor noices...
btw did someone say hookin it up in my room (stereo) it would get it moving wouldnt it?
6-8 hours just seems A LONG TIME before I get to blast it.

I hope you are upgrading your highs with your lows because with that HDC18 and stock mids I'd be surprised if you can hear the words on some songs.

That KLM kit will be fine, but be warned that the wire is far from flexible. I'd suggest purchasing a 1/0 lug crimper as well.

skmfkr
08-03-2008, 01:30 AM
for some reason that kit doesnt come with RCA cables or speaker wire like the 4awg kit does. so you need to also order RCA cables and speaker wire

you can get some cheap 12ga speaker wire from walmart. hell if u want send me a pm and i can send you some ive bought 2 4ga kits from them. so ive got like 40feet of it

GrandCherokee
08-03-2008, 10:08 AM

pretty much gonna go with Tsunami (http://cgi.ebay.com/TSUNAMI-AMP01BL-1-0-AWG-GAUGE-WIRING-INSTALL-AMP-KIT_W0QQitemZ300245633986QQihZ020QQcategoryZ79815Q QssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem)

Tsunami doesn't have RCA's either, you can get either one you want...

I have the KNU and I have no complaints.

08-03-2008, 12:24 PM
It will probably be little bit over 100$ shipped, and depends on how much speaker wire you need.

08-03-2008, 01:15 PM
alright sounds like im gonna order the stuff through Knu Konceptz

it there a special rca i need or i just choose from the wide selection...6m/20ft is way too much

bass adjustment. im guessing is your lpf set ito 80hz and the hpf to 80hz i dunno what the treb adj is for or the q. your amp should have the subsonic, i kno the aq2200d will. which you need to set it to about 25-30hz

But just how loud should it be since Im breaking it in...
I put it at half volume with the sub level all the way up and it still barely moves up and down...kinda like vibrates. But it sounds good-loud for about 700watts

Should it be moving a lot when Im breaking it in and what is good music to help break it in?
thanks for any help :)

youve been told that its going to make noises if you play low notes before breaking it in

where do you guys get your ideas on "break in" periods?

528hz
08-06-2008, 10:38 PM
Well, I think it all depends on how stiff the sub itself is and how much power you intend to throw at it RMS wise.

You'll find that most will say "just wang away" and typically that would be OK, but if those AQs are super stiff, I would throw half to 3/4 the RMS handling is on it for a couple of days and not go past half volume on it. Stiffer subs need to get loose before you go full throttle.

In my case for instance, I have 2 RD Alpha 10" and I will throw 1600 to each of them. I was told by the owner of RD to put 1000 watts to them for the first 2 days and send some 45-50 hz tones through them for short periods of time.

That's just my opinion and advice.

GrandCherokee
08-07-2008, 01:35 PM
well they arent real LOW notes
Gucci mane has LOW fuckin notes. lol
I definitly dont play those.
I play
Ya Dig
Put Me In The Freezer
Money Man
Lil Shawty
and they all have good notes to break it in.
None of those songs have REAL LOW notes that can mess up my sub in any way
remeber its 700 watts and Im not putting it full volume.

Yea true that
700watts is about 1/3 of what im about to have in a couple days and Ive been running that for about a week.
the AQ hdc3 is REALLY STIFF but i cant tell its starting to move a lil more

4 gauge is rated for around 130amps at the most iirc. at 18 volts 2200 rms would be over that. at 12-14 volts, plus I've heard the 2200's are a little underrated? Hell no, 0 gauge.

they want way to much for the JL/Kicker 0awg amp kits...and I need to get a new alternator/battery sometime during the week.
So Im going to order the Kicker 1/0kit for $125 off ebay...But Im thinking by buying off of knukonceptz. I just need the 0gauge ground wire/power wire and everything else Ill get from the car audio place. There is stuff in the Kicker Amp kit that I wont even need.

Get the Knu 1/0 Wiring. I have used plenty of it and it is great stuff. Don't forget RCA's.
And I highly suggest ordering another battery, along with another 1/0 kit to hook up that battery. You won't be happy if your car drops to 10's or 11's and then your alternator or battery goes, or both.

My friend recently was dropping to 10's, I told him to fix it or he'll regret it and **** will break. He didn't. His alternator/voltage reg went, and started running at 15.9 volts. This in turn boiled his battery. Much more expensive than he expected. So now he's selling the car. Haha.

Why does your AQ2200 have a bass boost? wtf :confused:

remote gain has the clip led on it. Set the amp gain halfway...crank the remote gain till you see the clip led start blinking.

Also looks like you have the bass boost turned up....turn it back down. My hdc318 didn't move a ton with the aq2200 but it was still new like yours...give it time to break in and see what happens

yeah its hard to tell what you have them set to? i would do like deuce said set the amp gain to 1/2 and adjust the remote gain til u see the red light, thats how i did mine. and when i first got mine i had the lpf too low lol. i would probly set the low pass all the way up and subsonic all the way down first,then adjust them later to like 30hz and 80hz

Why have the subsonic filter OFF when you're trying to avoid playing low notes?

I say leave SSF @ 28-35 and leave the LPF @ 80 and leave the gain @ 1/4 for a few hours, then slowly raise it..

Thats my plan tomorrow, first day gain @ 1/4, second 1/2, third full tilt :D

turn down the bass boost all the way

plug in the remote, start with the knob all the way down, slowly start cranking it till it blinks the clip led.

Might want to turn down the subsonic a tad to and mess with it once you get into the clip light.

or just play it as loud as it can go with the light "blinking"

Cuz I got the gains almost all the way up and the knob up till the clippin indicator blinks

If that "red clipping light" is on you better start turning it down or be ready to buy some recone kits.

subsonic is at 1:00 LPF is at 2:00
http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e209/drummermarco/SYSTEM002.jpg

Last night the light did blink one time so I just quickly turned it down...and that was with the volume on my headunit at about 4/5

sooo you guys recommend lowering the gains to 1/2
bass knob set to max
and blastin the **** out of it
correct? :D

what coils does the sub have?
how do you have it wired to the amp?

GrandCherokee
08-16-2008, 02:13 PM
i just wanna know if its the right thing to do putting the gains at 12:00. If I do i pretty much have to put the volume on my headunit all the way up or really close to that
consider i do that-would it be the loudest itll get?

mazdakid
08-16-2008, 02:42 PM
you have something wrong if the volume has to be all the way up

GrandCherokee
08-16-2008, 03:13 PM
...nothings wrong
I just got the trebble/bass down on my door speakers.
the volume on my alpine ida x100 got up to about 4/5 and that was blastin it

so i should put gains half way-keep everything else how it is and i should be set forever???

rdaudioman1256
08-16-2008, 03:22 PM
Just go get a DMM to set the gains correctly. It's the best way to do it.

mazdakid
08-16-2008, 03:36 PM
you never answered the coil question, and how many ohms the amp is running at
if you have to ask all these questions then theres no way you can say nothings wrong.

to bad i dont fail though

It was just the Fo(previously set to 60hz now to 200hz) and Q (previously at 1.0 now at 2.0) bass adjustment
and yea sub volume is all the way up.

The bass now moves the speedometer stick up to about 10mph...and also moves the rpms
pretty fuckin sick

you probably have your subsonic too high...the lows on it are at like 29hz iirc

Based on how loud it sounds/looks from the videos it looks like you have no clue what you're doing when it comes to setting gains/etc

jbizzle
08-20-2008, 04:31 PM
Theres a trick I learned to AQ amps, when ever you move the nob, its like a "tick," you feel it...

for SSF every tick, it goes up by 1, starting from 5 ending @ 50 i think, so I moved my nob 20 times, so that puts me @ 25 hz..

for LPF, every tick is 5, so I moved it up, counting by 5's till I got to 80.
