  1. When I flip my subwoofer phase at the headunit (pioneer nex), the subs get a great deal quieter, however my door speakers sound alot better.. is there a way to have both the clarity and the loudness at the same time? I have a pioneer 1500w for subs and a 3700w boss amp for rear speakers.
  2. It's a pioneer avh 2300 nex, not sure of preamp voltage
  3. its stock alt that dips to 13v but rests at 14.6ish but yea im going to lower the gain a bit..
  4. Also, it was like a 10minute trip, nothing too extensive.. around 25% on HU i couldnt really pick out what it smelled like.. almost like plastic but then later i thought it smelled like glue.. so idk wtf is going on lol.. i checked connections and every wire seems to be fine, however on my 4 channel amp (to the door speakers) the wires were melted at the terminal.. so im kind of hoping that is the cause of the smell, but im really concerned about the subs.
  5. Yea i have the amp so high to get it to where i want it, because it IS sealed box lol.. they still work fine, so i dont believe they are damaged, just smelly asf
  6. I have 2x punch series 600rms and a audiopipe 1500 wored at 1 ohm. I have had this setup for about 3 months and just started smelling a burning smell filling the trunk. Could this be the excess glue burning off still? After nearly 3 months of use? I have my gain set quite high, about 80% up... Could it be clipping? Both of the subs have a peak of 1200watt, I find it hard to believe a 1500watt amp pushing 2 of these subs could have enough power to harm them, but I may be wrong. Any help would be great!
  7. i have 2 fosgate p3 12's and the site recommends 1.02 cu ft. per chamber for sealed, and my current box is 1.26 cu ft. per chamber... should it be fine or should i fill it with something to get it down to the 1.02? my main concern is damaging the subs as they weren't too cheap!
  8. Ok I have 2 kicker 6x9s in my dear deck, and the right one crackles and pops when the audio is around 50% on the HU. I have both of the deck speakers running off an old 5 channel amp. I checked connections at the speaker and the amp and they seem fine.. What should I look for? I really don't want to put new speakers in there because pulling the deck out is a pain in the ass.
  9. Also, does the NEX 2300 have the pico fuse issue? how could you tell if its blown?
  10. I have 0 gauge from battery to a 2.5 farad cap, and 5 guage from the cap to the amp. the amp is grounded to the cap, which is grounded to the chassis using 0 gauge. I didn't sand down the paint or anything, so i guess ill try that next. the HU shouldnt be the issue as its a fairly new pioneer NEX. i plan on adding a second amp solemnly for the subs. and was also wondering if it would be ok to use the cap as a distribution block?
  11. Ok, so I installed a boss phantom 3700 5 channel in my car (I know, boss is generally garbage but I got a decent deal on it) anyway when I turn the key to battery on there is a slight hissing sound which only occurs when the input sensitivity is set to 200mv setting and goes away when I select the 2v to 8v setting, but I'm using RCA inputs so I would really like to use the 200mv setting as it is much louder. When I start the car there is static noise which is extremely annoying, this gets louder as I raise the volume, the hissing stays a constant volume no matter what volume the HU is set on. I don't believe it is a alternator issue as it doesn't change pitch with rpm. I have the power wire to amp on the driver side and the rca wires on passenger side, to try to avoid interference. Could this be a grounding issue? Any advice would be great.
