View Full Version : vocals really low

05-02-2011, 05:25 PM
i hooked up my XXX components to my amp today and im not getting that much vocals but im not sure what to set my xover to that comes with them and if the amp needs to be set to a certain freq. and all that... i am getting alot of bass out of the woofer tho lol. also i ran my RCAs from my brutus1600.1 to my highs amp could that be why? should i run a new set from the back of my HU just for the highs? thnaks

The crossover for component sets are usually around 70~100Hz high pass. Does the Brutus have full-range preamp outputs or does it have a crossover for it too? If so then set it to "pass thru" or full range. I had one and I should know but I don't remember.

Is the gain on your 4 channel turned up? Also make sure the preamp outputs from the headunit are set to "full range" and not something else if you're running the highs signal from the sub amp.

just make sure set the x-over on your deck or amp around 70-100 hz
you can go lower just make sure deaeden your doors & place your tweeters to good location.

troubleshooting is a bitttccc isnt it?

I spent all day trying to figure out why my sub isnt playing. i did so many switch between my amps. test with other speakers....come to find out the fuse holder was no good. i even checked the fuse and it was ok. but the fuse holder had some corrosion in there.

yeah, it had me confused for sure.. i started thinking at first maybe i didnt tune them right so i wasnt getting good output.. then i drove the car and realized the ground was bad from the whine coming through.. these XXX components very nice tho now.. im pretty pleased with them

Glad you got in figured out always wanted to hear a pair of those speakers.. I also have a whine but I have my rca's crossed with a power wire somewhere gotta take care of that someday..
