    Already checked the surrounds...I'm not sure about the as filter grandpa, I'll have to look...butt seems like that's close to where I set it...it's actually a little hard to tell exactly where this particular amp is set

    Yeah I didn't figure the warranty would cover it...its ok though even if it is shot it's not like I'm out a lot of dough...just time to look for diffrent subs that'll sound good in this box

    Rattle from subwoofer

    no actually it was the one farthest away...i ran a new ground wire today and grounded the rca' s to the frame of the hu...so far it seems to be cured butt I haven't had time to listen to it much, had to work tonight

    Lpf is set at 85 on hu somewhere close to that on amp...not sure if you'll be able to hear it on video or not butt I'll give it a try when the weather breaks here

    Perhaps I've missed something butt the majority of posts I've seen on here suggest a higher powered amp...the amp doesn't work as hard to push subs and you get less distotrion...or have I misunderstood this?
  6. Tommy108

    Rattle from subwoofer

    Yeah that's right...the gain is not turned wide open only about halfway then the remote knob is turned down to even less...i don't see why I would be pushing to much power...and if it was blown I wouldn't think I would get a reading from the voice coil

    Yeah really sounded good...can't figure out what could've changed to cause the problem

    The box has been awesome...really sounded great for about 3 weeks now until this issue started

    Yes they are wired to 1ohm final impedance...i have pulled both subs out of box and inspected them. I also tested them with a multimeter...voice coils of both subs still read 4ohm just like they should and I couldn't find anything wrong

    Rattle from subwoofer

    I recently began a build that has been plagued by nothing butt problems...im running 2 12" fu 300's a ppi p1000 amp and a box designed by shredder2...after finally getting everything together and finishing the box I must admit I was vaguely impressed with the bass output, however after about 3 weeks one sub has developed a strange rattle...only hear it in the higher bass notes the lows and really hard punchy bass sounds fine. So is the sub blown? If not any ideas what might be wrong?

    Budget amp questions

    Thanks that's pretty useful info I really hadn't even given a second thought to I was just looking at wattage per sub...I've had a few stereo systems in the past butt it was always get a couple subs an throw all the power I could at them. Now that I'm over the young a stupid stage I would like to build a better system...my main goal with my build was to build up a front stage however virtually every piece of equipment I had fell apart so I'm almost starting from scratch...lol it's sucking up all my budget a lot faster too

    Budget amp questions

    I went ahead and bought the p1000...i actually wanted just a fuzz more power butt there's so much crap out there that it takes to much effort to research them all just to see which ones actually measure up to their ratings

    Not really sure about box...probably prefab came with my old subs which were used will be running 2 fu 300 12's when I decide on new amp...would like to upgrade to 3 ---------- Post added at 12:33 AM ---------- Previous post was at 12:33 AM ---------- Not really sure about box...probably prefab came with my old subs which were used will be running 2 fu 300 12's when I decide on new amp...would like to upgrade to 3

    Budget amp questions

    After my last post about the problems with my new build I've come to the conclusion I need a new amp...after some internet research the best candidate I've found so far is ppi trax 1.3000 for a little under $100 however if the specs are correct this will do about 1500 rms @2ohms...will this still give me a little wiggle room to run an extra amp for my front stage or will I need to upgrade my electrical? With the electrical upgrade it would probably be cheaper to go with an amp with a little less power for a little more cash
