    Help sub sound like crap!!

    Ok I have a Rockford fosgate p3slim and I bought it with the enclousure and i have a phenox gold titanium 400 watt amp wired with a kicker 8awg amp kit along with a rf 1 farad cap..now when I first installed it it sounded nice it was loud but not like extremely loud..about a week after I put it in I got another p3slim and another phenox gold 1000watt amp..i don't kno why but I was compelled to switch subs and amp jus to see what it would sound like..now afterthat was done and I swithced everything back to normal it sounded fine that night but the next day the sound quality has decreased and has continued to do so..so I took the sub out thinking it was the problem and sent it in I jus got it yesterday and installed it and it sounds the same..the sound that I'm hearing is like a distorting and it's clipping..on the amp I had the gain turned up about 75% and it sounded fine but now it's like at 50% and it clips..any ideas??

    double face palm. you have much to learn. Firstly you need to learn how to properly set your gain because you are frying those subs.

    Could be alot of things.... Sounds like amp is the problem if you sent the sub in to be fixed and it came back sounding like that.

    Try a different amp and see what it does! make sure they are wired correctly, and not over powered.

    Well what sub would you reccomend?it has to be shallow and I will be adding multiple...I have 3 12's that I'm planning on putting in along with the fosgate 1000bd and I jus installed a optima yellow top battery and getting 4awg RF amp kit..(if you haven't noticed I'm a fan of fosgate)..I heard I can go wit 2 10" full size p3's..I have a 94 toyota pickup so it's a really small space

    The sub isnt a problem, people here just arent fans of fosgate for certain reasons mostly sound and quality. If you love fosgate then so be it....Try a new amp for starters i think thats your problem.
