i have a kenwood deck and a 1200 watt sony xplod xm-gtr 2022 amp and a 15'' concept competition sub that has a max rms of 2000 watts. everyone tells me sony xplod amps **** but not this one. my sub hits hard and i had it tested and its hitting 156.7 db. im entering it into a comp after i dynamat the trunk. and ideas on what i should do to make it louder? maybe LPF settings, low boost, and filter.

if that sub/amp combo could do a legal TL score of more than 150 everyone would be doing it...

tell the BS story to the noobs on cawko....

i wasnt there when it was tested the guy hat had it before me took it in. either way im having issues with it not hitting right. it used to be able to hit highs and lows but now its not hitting highs at all and the lows dont sound as loud and clean as they did before

GTR Series 2-Channel Class A/B Car Amplifier
RMS Power Rating:
4 ohms: 202 watts x 2 chan.
2 ohms: 250 watts x 2 chan.
Bridged, 4 ohms: 500 watts x 1 chan.
Max power output: 1200 watts

cuz it and the sub are junk....

yes i know ive seen all the specs for it. my sub specs are * Peak power handling: 2000 Watts per voice coil
* Continuous power handling: 1000 Watts per voice coil
* Impedance: QuadCoilf- 1 ohm (4 X 1 ohm)
* 4" black anodized Aluminum voice coil form
now how and the hell does that sub that costs $1200 with a sony xplod amp sound louder and hit harder then 2 18" solo x kickers hooked up to a 2000 watt amp?

link to this wonder quad coil sub you speak of?

if it is 1kw rms per coil thats 4kw rms and you have it on 500 rms...

never gonna happen dude...


and 2kw wont even move 2 18" solox subs :fyi:




















































I think I need some boots...

You keep believing that that 156 and I'll keep nodding my head. You expect to reach that number with no sound deadener and no knowledge of how to set up an amplifier?

if that sub/amp combo could do a legal TL score of more than 150 everyone would be doing it...

This.

i wasnt there when it was tested the guy hat had it before me took it in. either way im having issues with it not hitting right. it used to be able to hit highs and lows but now its not hitting highs at all and the lows dont sound as loud and clean as they did before
So basically the guy made up a high number and you believed him. You then proceeded to hand him some form of currency in return for a bunch of junk.

Question though...is this trollz?

and no i paid him 350 for a system that originally cost 2000 for so no its not junk and 2 its hitting something at 156 im not an expert and never claimed to be. i took it to a shop they used what looked like a microphone hooked it up to a computer and turn the sub up and played a cd and i say 156.7. im assuming that is not dbs? if not then what would it be

dude I am 1 of the 1st to freely help members just ask

but when you bring the bullshit to the table what do you expect in return?

then you expect us to believe your POS 15" on 500 watts is better and louder than world champ record setting subs are?

get a fking clue ....

im sure that anyone with their head on straight would say that its worth way more. you think this systems **** but i can assure you for being what it is and being in a mustang its definitely worth the money. and i said im slightly knowledgeable when it comes to car audio, cuz if i knew as much as the next guy i wouldnt come to this site and ask for advice! look are you going to give me any advice on tuning it to make it louder or are you going to continue being a douche bag?

dude if you have this elusive 4 cil sub you say you have you need an amp that will push it the amp is the issue here...


get an amp that pushes the subs RMS as a minimum...

according to you it is 4 1Ohm coils at 1kw rms per coil

that means you need a 4000 watt rms amp..

problem solved...

i never once said its the baddest sub on earth and i know its not. most people tell me i have a ****** system until the sit in it and listen. not trying to be a d1ck but **** dude dont come off as a raging tool or aint no body gonna ask you for anything. obviously im not a genius when it comes to this stuff. and if you are one of the first guys to offer help then why didnt you do that in the first place?
