    HELP Hertz HSK165

    Okay, I have my new HSK165. I bridged my JL 300/4 to get 150watts to each speaker. Now, I set it for Bridged 4Ω: 150Ww x 1 (set to 24.6 V), using the input sens. (GAIN). I also put the filter freq to 80hz and set the 24.6V using an 1khz test tone.

    I set the 24.6V at volume 30, now i cant even get past 21 without my amp cutting off. I dont know why, or what i did wrong. Am I doing something wrong???

    The speakers cut off when I go past volume 21-23.

    when im up that far, the speakers sound really bad.

    Re: HELP Hertz HSK165

    If i understand you correctly. With you new settings (gains) you can't get pass 21 on the volume of your headunit. Truthfully it sounds like you are overloading the inputs of the amp. The JL may have a protection on the inputs, but not sure I will have to check the PDF. for the amp out, for now back the gains down slowly and see if the problem goes any.

    What headunit are you using?

    Re: HELP Hertz HSK165

    So what converter are you using. Clean swap, Audio Control DQL8, Rockford 360?

    I have a TSX too.
    Are you running mercman's custom amp bypass harness?

    Try turning the input freq. on the amp to LOW

    Re: HELP Hertz HSK165

    Yea im running mercmans harness...it takes the outputs and puts it into an balanced ouputs. I believe that the TSX outputs has no spikes in EQ so i did not need a clean sweep or anythig.

    wong05tsx: what do you mean by input freq? the 300/4 doesnt have one.

    Re: HELP Hertz HSK165

    hey i sent you a pm back and just realized this. when you bridge them it turns your amp into a 2 channel. you cant run it that way because then it puts the final load down to 2 ohm. your amp isnt stable at 2 ohm bridged. you have to run them undbridged. one crossover to each channel. switch it up and problem solved

    Re: HELP Hertz HSK165

    Hey blackbonnie....

    So if I do that, im only going to push 75 watts to each speaker?

    Why can't the JL hold the ohms?

    Re: HELP Hertz HSK165

    its just how the amp is, its not stable bridged at 2 ohms. try it an see how you like it and if you dont then sell your amp and upgrade to a higher output

    Re: HELP Hertz HSK165

    OP - You should pick up mercman's BALUN, and run some different amps. I ran JL amps for a while before I got his balun, and was never impressed by any of the JL amps. 3 of them shitted on me too. Switched setups, and havn't had a single problem now

    Re: HELP Hertz HSK165

    I've got my sundown 100.4 bridged to my hsk's. a 100.2 to my rear hcx's.. I'm about to unbridge it though and have my 100.4 run it all soon, since I need some more trunk space, which is why i'm selling the 100.2. It'd be perfect for your hsk's if you're interested

    It'd outperform the jl 300/2, IMO. More tuning options too
