View Full Version : Install error???

04-06-2005, 10:14 PM
I installed my RE comps today and I hardly feel any thump in the door. I took to get dynamate and the speakers installed, and I was in a rush so had to leave before listening. Was something installed wrong? I think they have all my bass going to my subs.

They might have connected the postive to the negative?
What are the RMS value of your comps and what are you using to power them?

and you feel this is a problem because?

... because midbass is suppose to be coming from his midbass drivers not low bass drivers such as his subs. :rolleyes:

check the crossover freq..
check the crossover from the comp set

Im goign to take it tomorrow, because all i hear is highs and no mids or any form of bass. No thump at all!

Well no wonder, you're trying to get a "thump" from your mids... you should get more of a "thwack." BTW you shouldn't get bass from your mids, you get midrange & midbass from them. Bass is from your subs.

the crossover is probably not set correctly, if you can, check to see what the frequency is set at.

dont expect too much midbass out of them.... but yes, be sure to check the xover points and all.

on my two front doors i have a pair of 6 1/2 alpine type-s comps and dynamate.

and i have a pretty good thump.

maybe those f***ers didn't even intalled the dynamate and the midrange woofers. they just intalled your tweeters.

The funny thing is the tweeters are putting out all the sound. and the 6.5 isn't putting out hardly anything. Like they have the two mixed up. Pretty dumb! Shouldn't I expect some form of thump in the doors?

you should listen to the actual speakers... if possible you should disconnect the tweets and listen to the driver, vise versa...

the driver will play some pretty high freq notes that you might be mistaken for the output of the tweet

Probably had them wired out of phase, unless it was a power issue.
