My system sounds like A$$ what am I doing wrong?
Hey guys Ive been having problems with my system ever since I added the Alpine 9813. My system sounds like bum. It distorts real easy, sounds weird.
Now before this deck i had a pioneer deh-5500MP and it sounded kick ***. I mean I could crank it to like volume 50 out of 55(maybe 52?) and it would sound sweet *** with speakers runing from the deck. Now with the alpine I can maybe get it to volume 23 out of 35 but it still sounds weird. The subs are a lot quiter than they were before aswell.
Now I am pretty sure the poor quality in sound is my inability to set up the H/U correctly. But this is a hopeless situation for me. I have started several threads since threads since the summer asking for help setting the EQ curve and x-over settings. But no one will help me. Everyone tells me I have to just spend a day trying it all out. Well I have. Ive spent months just sitting in my car tweaking ever little thing I can and I CANNOT MAKE IT SOUND GOOD NO MATTER WHAT I DO. I am handicapped using this H/U. Yes I have consulted the manual, the manual tells me how to change features but not how to actually use them. for example. It will tell me I can select the bandwidth 1-3, however it does not say what it does, what I should set it to, and so on.
I just really need some people out there to guide me in the right direvction. Honestly I am so frustrated with this thing and am ready to smash it to pieces. Please if you wanna help heres my set up
H/U: Alpine 9813

Rear: HPC2206 Rockford Fosgate 6.5" 2 ways
Sub Amp: Rockford Fosgate Punch 300S

I did buy a new amp for my subs so that I could switch the RF to my speakers but thats not gonna happen till I get a new alt and a second battery so for now everything will be runnin off the H/U.
Please any help would be greatly appreciated like I said Ive had ****** sound for like 4 months now I cant take it anymore!!!!
