    read the thread on here about tuning with the imprint setup and it should help you. make sure that you have the 2/3 way switch in the correct position on the pxa as well. personally i never liked the sound that i could get with the imprint kit, auto-tuned or manual.

    if you can't find a thread on here chances are you can't tune your system properly. either find someone locally who can help you or sell it and get some money back.

    or you can spend a few mins and search more. the answers are here.... somewhere.

    Be sure that the switch on the bottom of the HU is set to EQ/Divide. You may need to remove the cage to do this.

    yeah just make sure to switch to either internal amp or ext for what your using. I had the same problem when I first installed mine. Somehow when I installed the switch got moved to internal amp and had me going round and round for half an hour.

    the style of amp has nothing to do with the switch on the pxa.

    Re: Alpine PXA-H100 Problem HELP

    His wording is a bit mixed up but kubie is correct. The switch settings are NORM and EXT AP (which looks like AMP).

    yeah sorry my bad if it sounded confusing. The switch is on the side of the head unit. Thanks for the clarification Jim.
