    My speakers dont sound that clear

    I have a set of component speakers. They are morel maximo 6.5s They are currently being ran on a kicker 650.4.
    They don't seem to be that clear. I really don't know how to tune the amp and radio I have that well.

    The radio I have is a kenwood excelon x996.

    I currently have the amp gain at a little under half. The Bass boost at 1 db out of 16 or 18
    and the frequency at 100hz.

    The headunit has a manual 13 band eq but I just have it set under the rock setting.

    Can anyone tell me how to get the best sound out of my speakers? thanks

    Re: My speakers dont sound that clear

    Have you checked the crossover output wiring? These speakers are VERY polarity sensitive on the output of the crossover, as a 2nd Order design is 180 degrees out of phase at the crossover point and these crossovers will have the polarity compensated because of this. So, double-check that the crossover OUTPUT polarity exactly matches the driver INPUT polarity, ie + to + and - to - on both drivers. If the polarity isn't right, there will be an extreme dip at the crossover point, which will definitely give a strange sound to the system.

    Double check all the settings in your head unit, and make sure they are correct. I have an older Kenwood head unit that has PAGES of settings, it took me quite a while with the printed manual in hand to go all through them. If in doubt, do a "factory reset" of the unit and start over with the settings. I have attached the Kenwood manual picture of the "reset" button to my post.

    Hope this helps you!
