    All cheap amps garbage?

    I did custom install and built the box myself so it is just how I want it to sound

    I am running all Rockford punch and power series and I have nice clear sound. Had no issues. However i am only getting 2350 watts rms because i don't care about spl just sq

    Bass sounds muddy in my car

    you will need 2 2 ohm subs or 2 4ohm dvc each wired in parallel to get full power. also ported box will give you a bit more bass punch.

    it does 1 ohm so you could get 1200 out of it just make sure to run it at 1 ohm. i have a punch 1000bd and it runs 1497 watts rms and is about 150 dollars more so i would say it is a good deal. car audio places always push certain products so dont believe them. pioneer makes good products. i love the pioneer hu's

    Audio Control ?

    thanks to everyone for your input. you all have valid points. my dqdx does come with a adjustment knob connected with a cable for delay adjustments and i am going to get my friend to turn the eq dials while i sit in the front seat. this way i will get perfect sound from the drivers seat.

    I am also using it for the delay system which will lift up the sound because the speakers are low in the door of my dodge journey. Also for more precise bass adjustments .thanks for the info.

    Audio Control ?

    i am going to buy a audiocontrol dqdx so i can increase my rca voltage to my amps up to 5 volts. i have an aftermarket jvc double din which is a little weak on rca voltage. i am running a rockford punch 1000bd at 1 ohm on two punch 12" p3d4 subs ported to 33 hz and a punch 600x4 running 4 power series 6x9 in the doors plus 4 punch p1ts tweeter kits running off a punch 400x4 pushing 2350 watts rms(which is lots for me)and i think in this situation it will be a game changer for me. maximizing my rca rms in will maximize my watts rms out.
  8. have you tried using grounding loop isolators on the rca plugs going into the dsp? it is considered a bandaid solution but i had that problem and it eliminated it. Check your ground connections also.

    Need help with my amp

    I have a punch 1000x2 running 2 d4p3 12" punch subs in a ported box tuned 33hz. i am running 1/0 gauge ofc power wire and have done the big 3 as well. i have an excellent ground to my seat bolt(measured less than 1 ohm from the battery for resistance) and i also have a 30 farad rockville capacitor. punch 6x8 door speakers and punch p1ts tweeter kits running off a punch 600x4 and punch 400x4. after having the system in for 4 months now, i was driving down the road and suddenly with my stereo only at mid volume my sub amp shut off and my other amps kept going. i shut everything down but noticed until i unhooked the power cable from the sub amp my car voltage was 11.8 volts with the engine running. after disconnecting the power cable from the amp the voltage shot back up to 14.4 volts but i also noticed that my 150amp inline fuse to the sub amp did not blow. all of my equipment is brand new and less than a year old. i did notice during the 4 months however that one of my d4p3 subs would be quieter and have less excursion that the other then other times have the same excursion. i checked and doublechecked all connections by eye and with a multimeter and always my static impedence total was 3.6 ohms.(what it should be). could i possibly have a short in the one sub that only happens when it is driven under load? how do you check this? this same sub was in this box when i had a different sub on the other side while i was waiting to get an identical sub to match it and i had a ppi black ice 5000.1d running them and that amp blew after only one hour of use. i just thought it was a cheapo amp and got the punch which after 4 months has now blown. HELP!!! I have doing installs in my vehicles for 28 years and this is a first for me. how do i begin troubleshooting this. i have already done a bunch of different tests and all come up no problems.also, since my amp warranty is not valid(bought from amazon) i took the punch and ppi apart to see what happened. both had melted epoxy on the top of the inductor coil but no other damage visible. i also should note that there was an epoxy burning smell when my amp shut off in both cases. any help would be greatly appreciated.
