    How to make bass hit harder!!

    I have a Kicker 12inch CVR 4ohm sub, Quantum Audio 1000watt amp, and Alpine 9884 headunit. At first, I had this system installed without the Alpine headunit. I used the stock deck with a converter. The songs bass hit harder and throughout almost every part of the song. I decided to upgrade and buy a deck, so I bought the Alpine 9884 headunit. I got this installed, and now the songs don't hit as hard and some parts of the song don't hit like they used to. My Alpine headunit has 3 preouts with 2V. Could this be the problem, maybe the converter that I used with the stock deck had a higher preamp voltage? I got my amp and deck gain and EQ adjusted at the shop I purchased my stuff but it still doesn't sound as good. When I had the stock deck and converter running my sub and amp, the bass hit hard throughout the whole song. After I got the Alpine headunit installed and EQ and gains adjusted, the songs still slap, but not as good as they used to. Any suggestions? On my deck, the bass is at 0. The bass range is at 1. The bass bandwidth is at 80hz. The treble is at 7 and the treble bandwidth is at 12.5. Loudness is on. I am using sub system 2. Sub level is at 13 out of 15. The amp gains are already adjusted.



    Car System:
    Subs: 2 Kicker CVR 10 inch dual 2 ohm
    Amp: Kicker ZX 750.1
    Headunit: Alpine 9884
    Wiring: Rockford Fosgate RFK4X
    Speakers: Stock for now
    Box: Ported, prefab for now
    Car: 1996 Toyota Camry

    oh no...

    just because the gains are set with the old setup does not mean its gonna be the same. get a meter and set your gains properly

    I doubt your amp is putting out 1K watts @ 4-ohms.

    But, I've never heard of it.

    Anyway, set your gains again. Either by ear or preferably a DMM or O-scope.

    Alot of shops will find it easier to try to sell you something to fix the problem than to re check your settings for you. Also you'll probably get a better sense of bass if you don't crank the treble to the max.

    and nobody cares what your sub is.

    If you use a better lure, the bass will hit it harder

    Turn the gain up all the way or put twice their RMS to them.
