    break in smell?

    My buddy has a couple of 600 rms rated 12s they are memphis PRs. His amp can only push about 400 to each but they smell like burnt voice coil. is that normal? Ive never had the issue

    That's what I would guess but if he's sending a clipped signal the distortion would make it sound like ****...but then again, maybe he can't tell the difference?

    Re: break in smell?

    I set them, gains down, no clipping and under the max rms, its a ported box, they arent bottoming out or anything else. Sounds pretty **** good actually but its that smell similar to burnt coils but not quite the same i dont think. just rather be safe than sorry.

    What do you mean gains down? You can't just set the gain wherever you feel like...that's not how it works

    Re: break in smell?

    hu puts out 6.5v and its set to 4v which is the lowest, bass boost is off too

    Well there's still a lot of play between the gain being set at 0 and it being maxed. It doesn't have to be maxed out to clip.

    The gain is set at 4v? And that is at the very minimum, as in the gain is set to 0?

    Do you know how to wire the subs to the right ohm for the amp?? If so prove it...just to make sure we arent wasting out time =)

    Re: break in smell?

    theres a difference btwn the glue smell at break in and burnt coils... experience is the only thing thats gunna help you tell the difference lol.

    id say if you dont hear any distortion, play them at a good volume so they're bumpin and start backing off the gain from there. you probably wont hear much of a difference as you start slowly turning the gain down, but it might be just a tad bit to high...

    also, why not just set the HU to 6.5v and back the gain down on the amp more? im guessing mids/ highs are running off the HU?

    yes mids and highs on the hu but everythin on the amp is turned to off. the HU drives the amp pretty loud
