  1. Final Update problem SOLVED Ground Moved to dedicated location, RCAs replaced problem still existed. Played the music with my rear seat up so I could see the lights on the LC7i turns out after vol 17 with the LC7i gains at 80% the maximized light indicating distortion started to blink just when I would get the crackle. So adjusted the LC7i gains down to aprox 45% and turned the amplifiers gains up to compensate. system is fine now with the head unit all the way up to 24 which is where the dd-1 said it distorted at. The DD1 however never measured any dis
  2. only just now seing this post I always say thank you in a comment when i get help. You are right I have been here long but I honestly never knew the importance of the link or thanks. I also never knew that you gain any sort of points from me doing it or I would have been doing that to all the ones who have helped me in the past. Apologies. Didnt think this was like facebook or youtube where likes mattered that much.
  3. Just an update i tried switching the RCA from front to Rear and having the highpass crossover set on the amp. The Crackling moved from the front to the back. so you could have been right bad RCAs. I will replace them and also move the ground while im at it and let you guys know.
  4. will make those changes and report back thank you
  5. I can try different rca cables just curious how would the cable be bad if switching crossover on the amp from highpass to full range solved the crackling but just introduces to much bass to the doors. the amp is connected to a ground bus that goes to the secondary battery and directly to the frame of the truck. the LC7I however jumps its power and ground via 18 guage off this amp if that matters
  6. Hi Guys Something strange im using Sundown Components on my front doors and Sundown coaxials on my rear. The Amp is Taramp DS800x4 . if the amp is set to highpass at Volume 17 the front components start to crackle. Amp gains are moderately set. the SMD DD-1 says i can go up to vol 22. So i switched the amp crossover to full range took the volume up to 23 no crackling but the components and coaxials are not putting out too much bass and it sounds farty. any ideas or sugestions ? there is an Audio Control LC7i in the mix and the factory headunit is set to flat
  7. Will I blow up my amp or just be running under powered Taramp DS800x4 2ohm Amp is capable of running 400RMS x 2 @ 4ohm in bridge mode. Would like to run in parallel 1 Eminence 8 inch beta -225 RMS @ 8ohm 1 Eminence 6.5 Beta -175 RMS @ 8ohm without adding a second amp just for the tweeters can I add my 4ohm Soundstream SST-05 Bullet Tweeters they are 50 RMS @4ohm What will my final impedance be and how will the power distribution to each speaker be ? if this will drop the impedance below 4ohms i would prob stay away from
  8. Hi Guys Im trying to build my own underseat box for my 2020 F150 Supercrew. i will do the construction my self can someone help me some a basic shape and some exploded panel views of the enclusure I will mess around with the kerfing and adjustments my self I would like a center port for 2 x Skar Audio ZVX-8s on Taramp HD3000.1 Double front baffle 3/4 Inch Plywood Max dimensions Width - 53 Rear Height 8.5 Top Depth - 14 Bottom Depth 16.5 Appreciate the help
  9. I understand that much but my real question was why pick those frequencies and not pay any attention to the tuning of the box, or manufacture specs.
  10. Guys Can you help explain to me how cross over points work in a nutshell so I can understand where to set my freqencies. I dont want you to tell me where to set them just the theory behind where is best to set them based on the specs of the speakers/amps. Subwoofers Example : Taramp HD3000.1 2 x Skar Audio ZVX-8 manufacture says 40-500hz if my box is tuned to 36hz my question is is this speaker even capable of playing that low ? Should my Crossovers be set right at the 36hz, or should i be right on the 40hz or should i choose a value right bel
  11. Not installed yet but found out that the crossover on this thing sucks nothing to fine tune just high , low or full . and even with that the highpass is from 90hz upwards. low is 80 below . full is 10 upward. so no way around it your subs will be playing way to much of the pass and your mids loosing out on the 60 to 80 frequencies .. an external crossover is in my near future. as to hooking it up i will try using the shared positive terminal and see how it goes.
  12. I dont know if this matters on the front doors im using the sundown 6.5 components that has its own crossover. On the rear doors I'm using the sundown 6.5 coaxials Can someone recommend an external crossover for under $200
  13. If i understand you guys I can use it on the bass amp and just add some processing for the stereo amp ? Recommendations?
