    Not as much bass as expected

    Thanks guys this really helped me out! Everything went according to plan: Dropped to 1 ohm Fussed with the gain/ no clipping/ distortion No devastating voltage drop/ electrical is fine There is a vast improvement and now I know more about my amp and it’s capabilities. Hifonics is hifonics

    Does anyone recommend an amp that puts out reliable numbers? Whether it is cost efficient or not?...

    Thanks guys I really appreciate the help. I’ll drop it to 1 ohm and let you guys know how it does. Maybe in the future it’ll be time to put some money into a new amp.

    @kr15 it’s a 2ohm dvc @Boomin Tahoe it’s a pioneer something or other I would have to check. The enclosure is 1.25 cu ft. Don’t get me wrong it does bump a little but definitely not as much as expected. @papermaker the only reason I’m worried about wiring to 1 ohm is because of my stock power plant besides big 3. Do you really think 500? I have a friend that showed me his cheap 350w jbl and it can compare. Do you guys suggest that I check the wattage it’s putting out? Or purchase a amp?
  5. Hi guys, I’m definitely a beginner when it comes to car audio. Here’s the jist of my situation: I decided to tackle a subwoofer build. In the project I installed the Big 3 upgrade with 0 gauge CAD, aftermarket head unit, hifonics Brutus 2416 super class D, sundown audio SA-10 rev 3 (750 Watts rms), and designed and built my own. I am running the at 850 watts @ 4 ohms. The problem: After having the build for a month now I’m not as impressed with the bass response as I once was. I understand that this could be due to becoming acclimated to the sound system, but even for pushing the sub 100watts over rated rms in a very small cab (ford ranger ext cab) you would expect it to be more intense than it is. I am also fairly confident in the design of the sub enclosure because of long, careful hours of working with WINISD and google sketch up. Just in case this helps it’s tuned @34 hertz. I’m wondering if it is possible that the hifonics amp, not being the most reputable brand, has something to do with the power output. When I tuned the amp I made sure to do enough research as I have heard some horror stories. The ‘gain’ filter is set at its most open or highest position and I am still not experiencing clipping of ANY sort. Does this seem unusual or is it that I am not that experienced and 850 Watts is not an especially big amount of power. I am also wondering what you guys think about wiring the sub to the amp at 1600 @ 2 ohms. Please only helpful comments and suggestions Thanks for the help!
