AQ 1200 Clipping

Recommended Posts

I recently just put a 1200d and 2 Aq 2.5 tens in my buddys toyota avalon and for some reason It begins to clip when you turn the gain up past a 1/4... Amp settings are all right, Using a kenwood deck not positive on model. Any help would be appreciated

we all know THC is in poppy seeds. This leads me to believe that other things contain THC as well.

I will second that, im teh guy with the scope and on an AQ 2200 we played tones and the clipping went off before actual clipping on the scope. But it was pretty close, hooking up the scope would be the only way to find out if its actual clipping.

 

Edit: also you can hear audible clipping but from a trunk its pretty hard IMO

I enjoy the sound of pressure

 

2 Ohm speakers offer higher fidelity due to how freely the cone moves with lower wattage.

 

wow! why so mean?

 

look it up. it has a bigger thump to it.

How much preamp voltage are you running? If you are running a 5v or 8v deck that isn't uncommon. Kenwood's are very strong on the preouts. I've seen 5v Kenwoods do 7.5 volts through the preouts. Also do you have the bass boost turned up?

Its probably only a 2 or 4 volt preout and there are no bass boosts up

how about the "loud" feature that a lotta kenwoods have? Also, some have something that can control the SW preout volume. Is that cranked up to?

The same thing is happening to me. I can be playing at a moderate/high volume, and my clipping light on my bass control will light up. I had a professional car audio store(known for being one of the best places in Kansas) install all of my equipment. But when the light does turn on, I don't hear anything out of the norm though. Any ideas, or should I just ignore the light?
