Okay, so I have a Clif Designs CDX-20A and a Treo Engineering SSX 15.
My head unit is a JVC KDR540, my line driver is a Rockford Fosgate RF-BLD.
I am tuning my system using a DMM. Unfortunately I do not have a distortion detector to help with tuning, so I need some advice.
I have tuned my amplifier to these setting hoping for success.
Bass level: -6 Range: -6 to +6
Sub level: 0 Range: -8 to +8
Volume: 30 out of 50
Line Driver: About 3/4th's up, not even barely reading on the 2V meter on hardest hitting song, but read up to the 3V meter when tuning.
Amp: Gain is set to slightly over half, no db bass boost. The speaker outputs read 79V at 2 ohms or about 3000 watts when tuning with a 0db 50hz tone.
However whenever I play my hardest hitting song (bass mekanik), it clips at Volume 26, and sounds fine at 25, but when I dmm it at volume 25 it is only putting out 30V, out of the speaker outputs.
Something is wrong I believe. It is really loud, but I believe it could be louder if I am not wrong.
Any help is much appreciated!
