I just swapped my CD7000 for a 9887 and now I cant hear the subs. Ive gone through the HU and the subs are turned on and in stereo mode (L/R vs just one channel), bottom of the unit is set to F/R+sub rather than 3-way. Subs are set in phase. I guess the only thing I have left to try is the Imprint.

Any ideas on what to check?

The eclipse has a much higher pre-out voltage. check gains?

Preout on the CD7000 is 5v, 9887 is 4v.

Make sure subwoofer output is turned on. Just had this problem on a 9886 in a buddy's truck...

When you push on the main knob (the volume knob, has fade and what not), a subwoofer level should come up. If it doesn't the sub isn't on.

It comes up. I have that set at 0 of 15.

If it's like the older alpine units, it should be at 15/15 to get 4v to the preout

I figured it was some sort of bass boost so I left it off, but I guess the Bass/Treble settings would be bass boost?

It's not bass boost, you have to turn that up to get any kind of voltage for the sub output...

The SQ on the 9887 is steps above the CD7000 and I havent even gotten out the Imprint kit or done TA yet. Just the clarity in the speakers is insane. From reviews Ive read its on par with the Pioneer P880PRS/P800PRS.

Regardless. The only thing the manual says about the subwoofer scale from 0-15 is that you cant change it if the subwoofer is set to off.

Set you're gains to about 25 or so on the headunit and up to 10-15 on the subwoofer level so you can turn the subs down without have to turn the volume down.

I was going to set gains at 20/35 and then go set the subwoofer level at 15. Then just tell my wife that she can only go to 15 on the volume so she cant blow anything.

I wouldn't set the full gains any higher than 28 volume on the h/u. Doesn't sound as good imo (I have a 9887).

I wont go any higher than 20 although gains shouldnt be to far off in the first place.

Did some tuning today and I ran into another question. When doing T/A it doesnt do even numbers. It has random presets like 13.7cm, 1.2cm, etc.

My FL speaker needs to be delayed at 38.1cm or 14", neither are on the list. Closest I can get is 13.7". The sub needs to be delayed by 10.1cm or 4". 4" is on the list so the sub is right on. What do I do for the speakers? Delay the left and right side so it equals 14" combined between the two?

Do you think your ears can tell the different of .3" delay? Don't be too set on the measurements you wrote down. Use them ears

Guess you cant read. The 9887 trumps the CD7000 hands down in SQ. Got it figured out too. Its not complicated at all. I was making it more complicated than it needed to be.
