    Headunit Skipping

    I have a Pioneer Premier DEH-P880PRS and my DD9917b on a single IA 20.1 (0.5 ohm) in a box tuned around 35 hz makes it skip at about volume of 30 on the deck, 1/2 gain on bass boost knob, and 1/8 gain on actual amp. These settings are only to show off to friends when they wanna hear it, and I don't ride around with it like this. But I am building a different box tuned to the low 40s (rear fire instead of upfire) that I might use in competitions. But I would need to stop the skipping before I got into any competing.

    So basically I want to know if you suffer(ed) from this problem and if you found a way to keep it from skipping, how you did it. In another thread, someone said get a lens cleaning CD and someone else said bend up more metal things .

    While you're at it, if you have/had this problem, list up your HU, what you were running, and if you know what you were hitting on a meter when it happened.

    yeah, seems like it's a recurring problem with Pioneer decks

    Re: Headunit Skipping

    I have had the headunit installed for about 3 months now, but have only had the sub and amp in for two weeks. I do not think it is braced in the rear, I think it's got space behind it.

    Re: Headunit Skipping

    yeah, i am probably gonna get an iPod using my grad money after I get the window tinting done. I guess that's more incentive to get one. ***** though cuz Pioneer makes us get a $30 cord. Capitalism....

    Re: Headunit Skipping

    i gotta get an ipod... i usually pull my head unit out and hold it when i burp... recently i've stuffed a bunch of napkins and stuff between the hu and the mount so it fits a lot more snug... pretty ghetto looking but it actually works...

    anybody know what they were hitting on a TL when there stuff skips? I want to get on a meter but don't live in a hotbed of car audio enthusiasts, so I am just looking for a range of possibilities

    Re: Headunit Skipping

    ^
    trying to get an idea of how many dbs you're hitting by when people's hu's start skipping is quite... retarded ( i couldn't think of any other word for it sorry).

    skipping depends on make/model, quality of installation, dash position, ect ect... vibration of the cd player causes skipping, and that in no way relates to sound pressure...

    Re: Headunit Skipping

    well my hu would skip pretty bad with my 12s and they registered 147 in the kick on the TL... it had a lot to do with the frequency of the notes playing as well. anything under 40hz really made it bounce around and skip pretty easily...

    and for the record, i knew someone with a pair of wal mart 10s in his jeep that made his hu skip and he probably wasn't above 135dbs...
