    Distance between subs

    I have a bandpass box, I just bought 2 new subs because the old ones were blown. I though the new subs would fit the same circles as my old subs. Both sets are 12's but my new ones are a little to big. So I used a rasp and made the holes bigger. Now the 2 subs are about a centimeter away from touching. Is this okay? How much space is needed between them? (They have their own air space) They are just close to touching on the top of the box. Thank you

    No space is necessary between the mounting rings of the subwoofers. As long as they fit, you're fine.

    So if they are touching, it wont effect the sound? Since they both will be vibrating against each other

    Nothing to worry about. You won't know the difference.

    Re: Distance between subs

    The amp puts out 300 rms at 2 ohms bridged. Does this mean i need the gain turned all the way up to reach 300 rms? or which knob on the amp controls rms? im trying to get my amp tuned correctly.. Also my subs are 300 rms peak so the amp and subs match. Just confused on what to put all the knobs to. Im not touching and of the settings on the HU im just going to turn the "loud" on.
