I only post pictures if customer is OK with it, cant be to careful these days....
I do alot of celebrity cliental work. so many dont want to be public.


I sell the brands people ask for, Skar (Kevin) has never done me wrong, he has gone out of his way in the past to help me out when others couldn't. I read the forums, heard the stories, asked his side on some topics and have my own opinion, I not out to make enemys but to make money, With that I get what the customer wants when they want it.
I posted something in this forum because it has been dead for 4 weeks, and I know there is alot of caraudio guys in my area, giving them an option rather than the over priced shops in the area who have no clue how to build a real system...... Thank You for interest, turn the volume back up!

You sound like the kind of "installer guy" I wished I could have gone with. I got a pretty good one though, from Craigslist. And I'm in STL MO.

You need to find another installer guy since he can't do anything right in your install.

My installer guy did a LOT of good work. Installed HU with generic Chrysler radio plug I didn't even know existed, ran 0AWG 12v+ and gnds to battery, mounted amps, wired everything, did a s h i t ton of sound deadening, worked well on everything! Did basically all the electrical hardware install. He told me up front that he didn't know much about DSPs and he was correct, and referred me to Tim at Custom Sounds who did. Tim of course mistakenly reported my passenger side door speaker wire as bering shorted with a DC resistance oif 0.3 Ohms, which was incorrect and I pulled the plug off the wires and measured with MY VOM to be 4.00 Ohms, perfect! Works perfect too! I thought I was gonna have to have the door speaker wires rerun! But not so, just replace the 12" subwoofer and driver's door 6x9 then SET THE AMP GAINS PROPERLY! That will be a huge step in the right direction.

Do we know how to disable the Alpine PXA-H800 DSP for the purpose of setting amp gains? I haven't found that yet in the instructions.

Your best bet would be to find a shop that can set all your gains for you, be it with an O scope or an SMD DD1. That way you know when your system clips and you don't ruin any more speakers. After shop sets everything up for you DON"T touch any gains.

I thought Caraudio.com wisdom was I should have done everything myself? Granted if a shop has a scope, yes! I will call Custom Sounds and see what they charge for amp gain tuning if they use a scope. Objective is best, then I can get in the DSP and play from there!
