    phase ?

    Not getting the type of bass response out of my newly installed speakers I think I may have crossed some of the wires up. What is a quick way to tell if they are in phase or not?

    Front Stage: Kicker 6X8 (2) Kicker 5 1/4 (2)
    Rear Stage: Kicker 5 1/4 (2)
    Mid Amp: Hifonics Titan TXi 4408
    Sub Amp: Audiopipe 1500d
    Subs:Alpine Type R 10'' (2)
    Box: TBH 4th Order @ 45hz
    Wire: 1 run of 1/0awg Big 3 1/0awg
    Alt: Stock 130 amp

    Look at the subs if they pull in when should be pushing that is one way. If headunit has ability to switch phase try that if it gets louder or just swap RCA's

    Not subs. Door speakers. Should have been more specific.

    9v battery, if mid pushes out it's in phase, if it pulls in it's out of phase....

    Play some music and fade the sound all the way to the front, then pan it from left to right. If you have the most bass when the balance is centered then your electrical phase is good on the front speakers. This is how you test to find out if your wires are swapped on one speaker.
