    rca's bad?

    Alright I got new power wire and already had new rca's I was gunna put in. So I took all the old wire out and put in everything new and regrounded to the frame. But when I ran the wires I accidentally ran the rcas on the same side as the power. When I did that I switched my head unit too though. Now when I try to play music and it is just as quiet on volume 20/35 as it is on 2/25. Could that be the rca's being beside the power wire?

    Could be anything from plugging the RCAs into the wrong jacks or some stting on the HU you need to change.

    It's the same amp (sundown sae 1200d) same subs (ab xfl 12s) diyma oversized 0 gauge, stinger RCA's, not sure what brand but 16 gauge rem cable, 300 amp inline kicker fuse and kicker fuse block, alpine cde 9852 head unit and everything is set to 0 on the head unit and everything is set the same on the amp as it was before when it was working. gain set about 1/3 of way up, subsonic at about 26, Lpf at about 80 I think. Xover is at about 100hz, phase is at 0, bass eq is at 0. See anything wrong with the settings?

    Re: rca's bad?

    measure the output voltage on the headunit. if you are getting no volume adjustment there could be many issues going on inside the headunit. Did you purchase the headunit used or new?

    Put the old one back in see if it works.
    Sure you didn't touch any wires together you werent supposed to when you were swapping everything out?



    "When I listen to a stereo loudspeaker playback in my room and an auditory scene has formed in my mind, how would I know that what I hear is an accurate replica of an auditory scene that could be had at the recording venue? Or more generally, that this is an auditory scene that could have existed at all?"

    Re: rca's bad?

    Try inputting a signal from a different source, like an MP3 player or iPod to the amp. That'll tell you if the problem is the HU or RCAs.
