    2008 SX4 Harch

    I finally got my Rocksford Fosgate P2 12' Dual voice coil sub installed 2day. Its amazing and i love it! Its hooked up 2 a Kenwood amp @ 8 ohms and its pushing about 250 RMS. Its also tuned and installed in a ported box. Here are some pics....









    Notice - I didnt do the install but i still want to kno what yall think???

    no everything has its own different settings. During the gain down won't really affect the others.

    Re: 2008 SX4 Harch

    12 sq inches of port FTW... Get a cheap 4 channel and some decent components and you will be able to hear your highs and mids over the bass better and the overall sound is so much better. Shouldnt cost ya more than $150 used

    Re: 2008 SX4 Harch

    Happy to see you over @ this forum and not just the SX4 forum. I'm "Brick" over there.

    Glad everything is working well for you. Turn the bass boost on your amp all the way down. Then adjust the gain to an appropriate level. Then use your H/U to fine tune it during play time.

    Enjoy

    (Reminds me a lot of my first sub stage. Now the addiction begins? Lol.)



    System Layout help available via PM.

    My system:
    Sounds good.
