Sooooo.....I thought I knew what I was doing setting my gains with a dmm and test tones but apparently I'm retarded or something.
here's the issue. my bass knob is clipping at only half turned up. can barely turn at all before it starts clipping. bass knob has clipping light.
what I've done is first I am running a stock toyota 4runner headunit and it's one of those that as u turn it up it starts to roll off the bass, starts happening around volume 35 of 63. so I've decided to set everything at volume 30 on headunit being most. I've got an audio control lc7i set the input @ 4.5volts then mids and highs amp is sundown sfb500.4 and sfb 5k.
-320 amp alt charging @14.8volts
- lto 40 ah bank
- 3/0 awg royal excelene welding cable.
-plus double frame grounds.
-channel 1 & 2 for highs set @3khtz -3db test tone @4.5 volts
-channel 3 & 4 for mids set @100htz -3db test tone @4.5 volts
- sub channel set @30htz -3db test tone @4.5 volts
-channel 1 & 2 set same using dmm of 25 volts for 300watts rms @3khtz -3db
-channel 3 & 4 set @ 25 volts as well, but 100htz - 3db
- set @70 volts for 5000watts rms at 30htz -3db test tone. no bass boost or anything.
please help. I'm unsure what I'm doing wrong and already smoked a wolfram 1 of 3 wolfram ag 10's. can't let it happen to one of my re audio xxx12's.
