    Installed new amp but its acting weird.

    Alright dont burn me too hard but i have an a2300hct and 2 aw1208t's. Ok anyway my problem is when i hooked it up it sounded like s*** i thought maybe just because its audiobahn lol. but when i unplugged one rca (does the same thing for both rca's and both subs) and only ran one sub it worked awsome and sounded good. Could this be a power problem, i only have a 75 amp alt and a 650 amp battery. The amp supposably produces 1200watts x 2 into 1 ohm stereo. I emailed audiobahn but their tech support is kinda bunk. I was hoping you guys could help me out here.

    Ummm how can you guys possibly know his subs are wired out of phase?

    What is the problem. Describe the sound. Sounding like shit is not a valid description.

    I was guessing, Too early to seriously think about problems.

    Hmm lets see. When one sub is wired, it sounds good, but when both are playing, it sounds bad. That can be a problem caused by phase which creates either cancelled waves or unbalanced waves. It is a logical guess and a good way to troubleshoot a problem.

    Understatement of the year... Never did find out what my 6 channel did bridged at 8 ohms... lol, those were some fun calls.



    Caraudio.com - Where the average member couldn't wire a SPST toggle if they had to.


    More proof.

    No, Andy, I'm sure the context is fine.
