    Check the Master/Slave switch on the Nine.1, make sure it's set to Master. If it's set to slave, you'll get close to zero output.

    With a tune of 37hz, I'd personally set the SSF to 30ish hz.

    Lower your sub sonic freq. 40 is to high! Everyone on here has said to set it around 28-30hz including AQ's owner. WE ALL CANT BE WRONG

    With 1k-1200 your barely touching the potential of that sub.

    Re: audioque hdc3 12 on a nine.1 and something is wrong...

    i know 1200 isnt much but i find it hard to beleive that at 200watts over the rms its not attleast doing 80% of its full potential...

    Another soul letting ya know that the ssf doesnt have to be box tuning. I personally set mine at 25ish with every set up I have!

    These HDC's will take a beating! Turn your SSF off and see if it makes a diff. At 40hz. your choking that freq. What I mean is the ssf limits the amount of power at that freq and lower to avoid over excursion etc...

    I have 5k at .5ohm going to my HDC 10's. 1200 rms is about 40% of its potential.

    Re: audioque hdc3 12 on a nine.1 and something is wrong...

    Given a proper install, that Nine.1 should be pushing closer to 1400+ watts at full tilt with engine running. I'd think the sub should at least work normally with that amount of power?

    Seems like something isn't right for sure.

    Oh, and just in case the OP missed it..... 30 hz for the ssf!

    You might want to check your sub wiring and see if it's wired correctly. The HDC will have increasing output through out it's power range. It will get pretty loud on as little as 3-400 watts.

    Re: audioque hdc3 12 on a nine.1 and something is wrong...

    my hdc3 12 is a beast. it literally destroys my car. i have it off about 1600 rms and 2.5 cubes tuned to 38 hz. set your amp gains with a dmm. do everything that people have mentioned in this thread before you ask any more questions because chances are one of the things mentioned is your problem.

    Personally, I wouldn't do that with such a high tune. There'd be a good chance the sub would unload below tuning frequency, which leads to nothing good.
