I would turn the bass boost down. Chances are it is bottoming out. Continuing to bottom out the coil and it could start to deform/mushroom out. That would seize the sub up and turn it into a paperweight.
Or its such a low frequency that you could just be hearing mechanical noise from the woofer. Hard to tell without hearing it in person.
not entirely true. but then again most pple dont play test tones as low as 15 hz like i do.
OP, you most likley are bottoming out ur sub like everyone else has said. turn ur bass boost down, and keep ur volume at a sane level. if you hear that noise turn the volume down! go and get an amp with a subsonic filter and your problem will most likley go away. set ur subsonic at ~26hz. this should give you a good enough roll off.
Yes but if there was a certain frequency where he was bottoming out and turning up the subsonic eliminated the said frequency causing the sub to bottom out wouldn't that fix the problem and tell you that you were bottoming the sub out? I looked at it like the rule of thumb for about turning your subsonic to about 5hz below tuning of course the box is sealed but I felt the principles were still similar.
I am thinking of getting the new JL 1200/1 v3 slash amp, a shop near me can give me a good deal on it. And then down the road if I ever want more bass, I should have enough head room to run 2 subs. Whatda ya think?
i like the JL slash amps. but there are better amps for the money. i cant help you pick an amp simply because i havent been able to decide on an amp for over 6 months...
lol, my main reason for the slash amp is the W7 is 3ohm svc, and the slash amp will give me rated power from 1-4ohm.
Hard to find a amp that will give me 1000w at 3 ohm.
i bought my amp in sig for 820 shipped and it does 4000+rms at 1 ohm point being jl is way over priced
for 950 you can get more power at 3 ohms..... check in the classafieds. there are a TON of good amps on there right now.
even if your set on spending that much you can get a monster of an amp for 950. are you dead set on jl or open to suggestions
Yeah, I live in Canada. All audio equipment seems to cost more here. And if I bought in the classifieds or online shipping, duty and customs is a *****.
I do also want good clean power, not that audiopipe stuff, or I mean popcorn sounds lol
Do you guys recommend any amps that can give me 1000w at 3 ohm?
