    Anyone else curious about subs from China? JLD Audio?

    I have read some HT threads with guys that have bought and tested these subs. It seems to be hit or miss even within 1 line of subwoofers. Sometimes they perform well and otehrs they fall flat on their face. I think there is really poor QC for these speakers.

    Car stereo question

    If you have an Android Auto or Carplay headunit then I believe it can.

    Subwoofer problem HELP!

    I assume you are using RCA's from the headunit to the amp? Are you using the remote wire from the headunit to the amp?
  4. the 2x8's would be best if the enclosure is not to undersized then you would be better off going another route. 2 sealed will probably be about the same output as 1 ported.

    Need Help with a new build

    How do you know the 8 will be louder? you are giving up cone area and keeping the same power so??? Yes ported would be louder but you are losing cone area so it could be a toss up. If you are going to upgrade power and go ported then would definitely make a difference. For the X-8 you would need to double power over the SA to have a noticeable difference. even then it is not like wholly shit difference.

    Lightning Audio S4.15.VC2

    Flea Market brand. The only specs I saw showed a 2" magnet and 500 watt power handling.

    What’s the best option?

    Yup. had to take the door gasket off and give it a kick to get it in. maybe the old trunks are 4x's larger IDK. Are you going by online specs or did you measure the trunk and opening? The specs I see online show 11 cu.ft of cargo area.

    What’s the best option?

    Yea thats not happening in an Elantra. I had a hell of a time getting a 6.5 cube box to fit in my sons car, which is a 09 Elantra.

    Bass sounds muddy in my car

    That ground is terrible. need to get to bare metal. That amp does 120 watts bridged, not going to be banging on that power. Sealed box, Low power, improper tuning, entry level equipment, all equals less then stellar performance.I think you are expecting to much from what you have.

    cross-post: Matching amp to sub(s)

    Are they dual 2 or 4 ohm?

    Looking for Custom Sub Builder... East Coast

    What problem are you having? Its a sub so not to many things that could be the issue.

    Bass sounds muddy in my car

    Muddy could be several things or a combination of things. First I would turn the Punch eq to off. Boosting a frequency will make that frequency louder adding to the boominess. Learn to set a gain . It is not a volume knob and should not be treated as so. You will fry your speaker. What are the specs of the enclosure it is in? Using loudness eq should not be required if so then you did something wrong or you are expecting to much from that gear. Is your car a hatchback or trunk?

    I doubt you would notice any sound quality difference.

    Dc xl10 m4 in a 4th ?

    Not an expert on 4ths but If the sub is suitable for ported it will work in a 4th. Generally a high QTS and low FS sub is ideal.

    What Alpine amp? If it has speaker level inputs then use them and tap into the speaker wire for a signal. IF not then you will need a LOC. Use the LOC to tap into the speakers and then it will have RCA out. If the factory radio has any bass roll off at higher volumes the LOC should have some correction for it like the Audio Control LC2I.
