    Re: Sub not hittin at all, both amp and sub fairly new

    looks like its wired right ,switch the wires at the amp for the subs around ,may be out of phase

    How do you have all your settings on the amp? LPF, subsonic, phase, gain, etc?

    thats not how you set the gains ,you might wanna read the sticky here for setting gains properly .also try wiring the sub to 2 ohms for that amp

    not if you set the gains properly .f you want more output ,then a ported box will help as well and a custom built one ,not a prefab

    It,s better to over power and turn down gain than under power and try to turn up a dirty signal
