    Icon32 I need Help Wit my GROUND WIRE

    i got 2 12'' Alpine subwoofers 600watts and a SPL amplifier 1200 2 channels and a Pymarid Crossover. When i turn my amplifier up my subwoofers start to making a loud loud noise or when i turn my crossover on my subwoofer make a loud noise. I think its my ground wire or my speakers is about to bust.

    If the noise is a popping sound you're putting too much power into the subs. Turn the amp gain down.

    if i turn down the gain would it be as loud as it is now. i have two things to turn out on my amplifier i think one is Bass and Gain. OR DO HAVE TO GET BETTER SPEAKERS.

    either trun both the bas and the gain down or get subs with a higher rms.

    the gain is not the volume control....if u turn it up to high u can cause your amp clip the signal which can damange/ruin your sup/amp........
