alright u caught me out
.. i didnt read it! i had friends over at the time...
but first thing i done was drop the LEVEL.
after reading the site i couldnt help myself but to drive to the rail way line where i could pump up the volume with no one noticing..
i set all the settings back to 'flat'.. including LOud setting (had that on high)..turned sub off..then increase volume too 95 percent where sound quality was beginning to drop. i figured settings of amp was close enough so didnt touch that.
seems i was running alot of bass through the speakers to composate for my sh itty sub...before the changes i only ever ran the HU at 50% volume. thats why i could turn it up now.
then i turn the sub on and ran it at full volume with me face right up against it.. no distortion.. played both rock and rap..
so that was good..i didnt have to touch the amp settings..
then i turned the hpf and lpf to 80 hz..
cracked up the volume again.. the sound was awsome...loud clear and the 'stage' was perfect.. the bass sounded like it was coming from the speakers..
i must have sat in the car for 30 mins enjoying the music after that..
i havent touched the Eq settings as yet.. i'll play around with that tomorrow..
thanks again for all the help and infomation!!!!
