    Anybody in the Fayetteville/Sanford/pinehurst area worth a fart at tuning amps

    I need some helping tuning my amp I don't even want to talk about how the settings got changed but anyways, is there anyone is this area able to tune a gt-2125 with a dmm or oscope or something? Or could someone troubleshoot me through it.

    Dang man that would be perfect but its so long away. I can't find any shops around here that set gains with oscope or such. I'm sure I could do It on my own I just don't wanna pay 170+ dollars for a oscope I'm probably only gonna use once.

    Dmm and O scopes are different... You can get a Dmm from wally world for less than 20 bucks.

    Or this, if you are really wanting an o-scope.

    You don't need a f'n O scope you use a Dmm if you want really accurate you can use an O scope but, a Dmm will get you close enough.

    Square root of power times resistance. Flatten my eq, volume 3/4s or so and adjust gain until I reach that number right? What kind of tones should I play for mids and high amp vs sub amp

    Depends on the crossing but, Mids 60 (maybe), 100, 500, 1k Highs 4k, 6k, 8k

    You don't have do use all of those but I would use two of each.

    Would also look at when your head unit clips on the internet unless you want to set it at a lower volume.
