    help with my amp wiring

    i have a soundstream vga 500.4 and have it wired now with channels 1+2 running to my component set, and channels 3+4 bridged to my sub at a 4 ohm mono load.... for some reason it's not pushing my sub well..... i have the att button on and the rca sense switch on bypass..... can anybody help here.... what could be the problem... my sub is a 10 inch rockford punch 3 which handles 400 watts rms and the amp should be pushing 500 rms?? i'm lost

    gains are all up? yikes, remove fingers from gain and turn that thing down, it is NOT a volume control. Read the gain setting tutorial!

    I am assuming the att button means attenuation? Turn that OFF, and turn the RCA sense bypass OFF, see how that works.

    Re: help with my amp wiring

    yea dude. ATT = LOWER (basically like a -24db button or somthing similar) and the same thing with "RCA SENSE BBYPASS". turn all that **** off.

    turn the gains to 1\2 way, and then give it a try. unless your sub is SVC8 - or RMS of like 800 in a small sealed box, you should be fine.

    Re: help with my amp wiring

    i have the att off and the rca bypass off... still not hitting hard... if a put the gains all the way up it sounds ok... but i know that it should pound with 500 rms watts to a single punch 3 10" ...........i have it wired correctly.........don't know what else it could be....i even tried a different line output converter... still no luck.. any ideas?

    Re: help with my amp wiring

    swop the channels round, so 1 and 2 go tot he sub, 3 and 4 go to your components. that should let you know if the amp is faulty/sub faulty.
