  1. The kicker having a fixed sub sonic filter at 25hz 24db slope , the E1500 has an adjustable SSF with a 12db slope. My enclosure is tuned to 35hz . Just don’t want to have any issues with playing to far below tuning.
  2. I have two kicker comp q 12’s dual 4ohm and looking at two different amps , the kicker cxa 1800.1 and the D’Amore engineering E1500.1 . Love the idea of the E1500 but I feel like the kicker would be better power wise just not sure .
  3. Do newer models have a newer version of Bluetooth that has better SQ/bandwidth? I know I have seen some new models that even have wireless car play that works over WiFi from the head unit I’m just curious if the sound quality is better?
  4. I have an iPhone 11 and using Apple Music and Spotify free Trial and in streaming over Bluetooth HU is an older pioneer probably 4 years old . Non CarPlay . The music doesn’t sound as full to me , am I crazy or is there an actual difference? I hate the thought of having to plug my phone in every time so I haven’t even tried the phone wired.. but when I swap back to music on my usb stick omg sounds so much cleaner.
  5. With my components the crossover has -3, 0 and +3 dB what do most people use? I will be right at the sets rms maybe a little over but not by much.
  6. Don’t see how it’s safe to the wattage. And very low Ah compared to yinlong for the price. Over priced because D4S.
  7. All my previous amps have had a ssf with a 24db slope I have set 1/2 octave below tuning. My new amp has 12db slope and is 2000 watts more power than my old amp . My tuning is at 33hz on two sundown U10 putting 2500 to each sub so would best bet be to set the ssf at the tuning?
  8. ok so running a sundown sfb 5000 on two X12's right now i have skyhigh 12 ga ofc to each sub from the amp so maybe 3 feet of wire to each d4 sub. is 12ga ok or should i use larger say 10ga i have not really hammered hard on it yet.

    Subs what direction to face box!

    So I have been playing around with it today. Lpf at 80hz with box facing the back is a little louder but damn I have a rattle that is damn near louder than the bass is Wallop of a sound. Can’t figure out where it’s coming from. Thinking about trying the box firing up now . With the subs and port both firing on the back of the car is just asking for this extra rattle. The back and hatch sky high sound Deading.

    So if they do roll off before is it going to sound bad or just not benefit from it? Right now the lpf is set at 63hz and would like a little more punch bass that you feel in the chest. Is that possible with the set up? Some people telling me I need to raise the lpf to 80 to 100hz .... the components in the front is high passed @100hz also.

    True ... my box has a bandwidth of 24hz to 63hz tuning @32hz but I’m just like damn it’s 10’s could I not benefit from a little higher lpf say 80 to 90hz or would setting that high just be pointless due to my box bandwidth?
