    Just take breaks from the system, turn it down a bit and listen to some non bass heavy music for a day and it will be back in full force the next day. It is easy to get used to it when you wang full out all the time.

    Re: Subs quiet sometimes or im retard

    Whenever I first install a system it always seems really quiet to me, then for some reason over the course of a few days it starts to get loud, and eventually gets even louder over time. I never got why, but eh.

    and i've only purchased used subs before, so I have no idea why that happens.



    Amp: None
    Sub: None
    HU: Parrot Asteroid Single Din
    Front Stage: Massive CK6X Component Set (one mid-woofer went out recently)
    Rear Fill: None
    Electrical Upgrades: None
