So, I've been doing a ton of reading on this site, and realize I have barely scratched the surface of realizing I have lent the slightest idea what I'm doing lol.
I have a little background knowledge of wiring, voltage, voltage drop, honing things out...etc etc as I do service and install irrigation systems.
This is my first sub system. I have been around them before, (back in high school) my good buddy had a set of r 12's in his explorer, another with a set of Memphis 15's in his buick...some diamonds. So on...
I've always appreciated music and wanted a system, so here I am at 30 trying to put one in my truck, and I haven't a clue what I'm doing. Sub I got came with an amp, cheap boss riot3002. I did the install. Watched some YouTube videos(probably the last thing you want to hear), read a bunch, have totally rewired trailers, irrigation, other things, so I'm no stranger to wire connections. Figured I could probably do it.
I decided to put (what I thought would be) a better amp to my comp r 12. Got a kicker cx600.1. I just got it swapped out, and the boss amp sounded better. The kicker amp doesn't seem to want to hit bass notes. I don't know if I need to tune it, or if I've done something wrong or what. But I can't get it to hit like it was with the boss amp.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Please be patient with me, as I'm still trying to figure this all out. Have always had an interest in the stuff. Just finally acting on it and plan to stick around.
Thanks in advance.
