    AP 1800 Louder then saz 3000d..Why?

    i had the gain on the audiopipe at 1/4 - 2/4 sometimes, i dont have a oscope but i just listen for distortion. well on my saz, the **** thing does not even get that loud at 50% gain. running at 1 ohm, and i wonder what could be the problem.



    -My Current Setup-
    Head Unit - Pioneer AVH-P4300
    Sub - Audioque HDC4 15 - 4.0 Cu @33hz (Built By @DBeez ; )

    the gain could sitll not be high enough on the saz and you could be clipping on the ap... or theres some kind of magic involved

    i have a stock cd player in a g6, but i assumed that most people only set the gain to about 1/4 cause thats what i was told. you dont go past 1/4 most of the time.

    Not the most accurate, it varies amp to amp, even 2 of the same exact amps in the same exact car hooked up the exact same could have their max gain level before clipping be at a different spot. I havve seen an aq amp not start clipping until the gain knob was around 90%. that doesn't make it a better amp it's just how it calibrated.

    Gains setting vary greatly from one amp to the next some are made for high volt inputs then they would set low but a cheap amp may not accept but say a 4v input so it would appear to be set low in that instance, basically turn your gain up preferably with a dmm hooked up!

    I dont see why anyone is jumping to conclusions saying the amp is faulty when the gains arent even set correctly
