View Full Version : Local car audio shop installed amp and sub today...

09-28-2008, 01:48 AM
I got a JL 12W3V3 (2 ohm) in a slot ported enclosure powered by a Clarion APX1300.

I should be getting 400 Watts RMS to the sub at 2 ohms.

I have an Alpine DVA-9861 and I can control the sub level, 0-15 but when level is 0 the sub is still on. I think 0 should mean off.

I'm happy with the sound but it vibrates my rearview mirror so bad that my view is of the backseat 5 seconds into a song.

JL 12W3V3, Clarion APX 1300, Slotted Enclosure, Amp wiring kit and installation was $650.

I could have saved some money by doing it myself. However, having it done in less than 2 hours and not having to do any actual work was worth it to me.

The Fight Club Soundtrack sounded great on this set up.

Who needs a rear view mirror

And suprisingly thats not a bad price for all that stuff installed. Where did you get it done?

Pics? maybe tomorrow (if I'm really bored)

Where done? Columbus Car Audio

yeah that doesn't sound like a bad price. also do the deck go into the negatives for sub level? 0 is probably just no extra boost.

Yeah, negatives would be nice but it stops at zero.

Also, my gain is only half way up and it still pounds really hard. I was happy about that.

I somehow managed to add a picture of my HU to my gallery. If you knew me you would be proud.

I copy and pasted this from their web site...

Three great locations to serve you:

2975A Morse Road
Columbus, OH
(1/2 mile west of Easton)

1922 Brice Road
Reynoldsburg, OH
(SE corner of Livingston Ave.)

360 Baker Boulevard
Newark, OH
(off 21st Street near Wal-Mart and Meijer)

Their web site is columbuscaraudio.com and it is a really crappy web site!
