    Quick question about phase on my powered sub...

    I've added a Rockford Fosgate 12" powered sub to my system. It sounds good...

    The question is about the phase switch 0/180. How would I know if I need to swap it?

    What scenarios require changing the phase on a sub?

    Re: Quick question about phase on my powered sub...

    it depends on which direction the sub is facing, vehicle acoustics, how far away the sub is from you etc etc. Basically, try it on both settings and whichever sounds better to you is the way to go

    I just added 5 SoundQubed stickers, and despite having no equipment upgrades, it added 76 DB!!!
