Hello, I think I may have a good setup..
I have a
Memphis PRD 500.1 amp
JL Audio 8W1v2-4 subwoofer
I got a 8" sub for 3 reasons:
1. I have VERY LITTLE room in my truck
2. I have had 10", 12", and a 15" sub, so I wanted to try an 8" and see how it sounds
3. I am not looking for a lot of bass, just a bit upgrade and less strain for my door speaker's bass.
The Memphis amp is rated at 200w @ 4 ohms
and the 8" sub woofer is rated at 150w rms @ 4 ohms
Is this setup correctly? I have the amp Gain turned down to 1/4, because I was thinking 500w vs. a 150w rms sub, but it's 4 ohms... Should it be about 1/2?
Also where should the Bass EQ be about?
Also, it sounds like it's missing every bass note, what is a basic way to tuning your amp? The amp has 2 knobs for Sub Sonic, and Low Pass.
Thank you in advance!
