    Super help for a super idiot.

    First, the amplifier you have is a super cheap brand and may never sound good no matter what you do with it. Ok, here goes nothing. With the crossover switch set to low pass, the high pass knob does nothing. So you can ignore that one. Turn the bass boost all the way down and ignore it as well. That just leaves the low pass and the level. Set the low pass to around 80 hertz. ( it goes from 35hz to 300hz, so about 1/3). That just leaves you with the level ( gain ). The easiest way to tell you to do it is to set the stereo to a normal volume level. Not blasting, just a regular level. Start with the gain on the amplifier all the way down and slowly advance it till it sounds good. The listen to it at high volume and see what it sounds like. Adjust as needed till you find the happy medium.
  2. It is a loose connection somewhere. Probably a loose ground under the hood. I would suggest doing “the big 3” upgrade. If you don’t know what that is, it is basically adding extra grounds and power wire under the hood too help carry the extra load of your amplifiers. Look on YouTube for a tutorial.

    APMI-2000 running @ .5ohm? Anyone tried it

    It is going to come down to impedance rise. I know someone who ran a AP amp at .5 for about a year with no problems. Then he decided to change boxes. Amp died two days later.

    Weird Sub Issue

    Sounds like you have a phase problem. Reverse the wiring on one of the subs and give it a try.

    Super Cheap Budget 10s - Help me pick from these.

    I would consider doing a isobaric pairs with the blaupunkts. Double the power handling with half the apparent box size.

    Guess Papermaker's SPL score thread

    Every Meca event I have been too, they did test metering for $5 a run. And you could put the mic anywhere you wanted. Not just Meca legal. Why not at least try the other side of the car, instead of saying it woulda, coulda, should’ve done xxx?

    Calling out @Hertz Mafia

    Anyone here remember Mike Singer’s Eclipse with the Tc Sounds 18’s? (Search YouTube for it). That thing had stupid amounts of flex and broke windshields almost at will. He was doing 152’s.

    Morel comps for $60!!

    I bookmarked the seller when this thread was first started. He now has two negative feedbacks from people who never received anything.

    American made amplifiers

    The only one that comes to mind right now is Mmats. I know that up until a couple of years ago Rockford Fosgate’s high end amps (power series) were US made, but the prime and punch series were not. I am not sure if that is still true.

    Help with dead sub

    Swap the working subwoofer and the dead sub. If the ‘dead’ sub now works, it is a wiring/amp problem. If it is still dead, you have a bad sub. Use the same process of elimination for the speaker wiring and rca cables till you find the problem.

    Cobalt alt only charges sometimes....

    You have a pcm controlled alternator. The voltage you are describing is normal. Depending on your exact vehicle, you may be able to get a bypass module to fix your problem. Or it may be as simple as unplugging the voltage sensor wire at the battery. GM Modules

    Morel comps for $60!!

    Scam. Seller only has 6 feedbacks, only one of those is as a seller. He also brought something on EBay but never paid for it.
