OK guys here's the deal..... recently upgraded some of my system with an audio control lc8i, audio que 2200, and just reconed my dc lvl 4 xl..... both the AQ2200 & the audiocontrol lc8i have clipping LED / indicators...
i don;t know if maybe -
1.) my ipod has a bunch of super distored or $hitty quality music files on it
2.) the AQ2200 clipping indicator is a bit overly sensitive
3.) my amp AND/OR lc8i output vs gain levels are all jacked up-(which i'm personally assuming)
4.) OR YOU GIVE ME YOUR IDEAS AND/OR ADVICE
i've tried various ipod EQ settings INCLUDING FLAT & OFF, regular "0 +db" all the way to about "+65%"...
the audio control lc8i's clipping indicator hardly EVER activates but th AQ22's remote gain with the clipping indicator is EEEASY to get blinking/almost but not so much solid red (which i immediateley turn it down or disconnect the music source because i'm not trying to trash my DC, almost to a paranoid extent).almost anything with some serious bang it sets it off. on and off......
analog settings on the amp itself are
bass boost - OFF
gain - 55ish-60ish %
sub sonic filter - 40ish hz
low pass - 80ish hz
the audiocontrol has both adjustible input & output preamp voltage levels
i just know that something isn;t right and that this DC should beand has been much louder.. i does get loud but many times the AQ22 starts saying it's trying to or is clipping
WHAT THE F IS THE PROBLEM? please please give me some advice/knowledge that you may have that could help me. we'll start at that description of what's going on... if you need any additional info just ask..
ok gurus let's see what you know
