    Newbie here - need help

    I am having a problem with my bass not being consistent. It will hit hard at first, then dissapate(sic), then if I turn up the bass on the HU, it will hit hard again, but after a couple mins, it will return to lower levels.

    It is not the RPMs or speed limt or anything b/c I have paid attention. It is more of a time issue. It may be a program thing in the deck. If so, can I override it? I have read the manual in and out and have found nothing that mentions it.

    Here is an abridged version of my setup:

    Dual Optimas(yellow and red top)
    1.5 farad cap
    Alpine CDA-7995
    Orion HCCA 225R
    2 10" Orion Cobalt in custom box

    If you guys need any more info, let me know. It is driving me crazy.

    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

    Thanks

    maybe you don't have a big enough alternator. that would then drain the batteries a little, which can cause the bass to not hit as hard.

    I am pretty sure it is not the alternator b/c my volts never change and my lights never dim. Also, the bass hits would be proportianal to the rpms of the engine, and since it doesn't matter if I am @ 1500 RPM or 4500 RPM, then it is not the alt imo.

    It is possible it is the amp. I am not sure about the protection issue of the amp b/c I got the amp off eBay. There was no instruction manual and I would dl it from the Orion site, but it has been down for construction.
