    Rockford T1500bdcp two D2P315’s dd1

    Yep double checked reading 1.8 ohm

    Rockford T1500bdcp two D2P315’s dd1

    We chose a larger amp being most of the time sealed needs more power and to have clean headroom of power when we first installed we set with the 0db weak sauce and the try -10db no good now back to 0db thinking about trying-2.5bd but don’t understand with this amps power output at 2 ohm on these subs does any overlap even make sense?
  3. Ok so setting up two P3 15’s d2 subs sealed box net 2.45 per sub sealed on a T1500bdcp when we set with the dd1 at -10 dB sound was awful being chunk up to way to much power. 600rms subs what if any gain overlap would be safe right now set at 0db to be safe. Seen amp dyno saying amps around 1600 Watts 2ohm and that’s where we are running it so would 0db be the best bet it sounds kinda weak for two 15’s currently. Any help would be much appreciated!
  4. Subs is kicker cvr12 , port area is 99.00 in2 tuned to 36.5 gross 9.18 net 5.93 cu ft , port area per foot 16.69 in2 . Honestly two in the kicker pre fab box sounded better then the four in the built box for four.
  5. Have a ported box for four 12’s was built under spec subs need 1.75 min and what I have is 1.48 after displacement. Would polyfil help? Plug the ports and just run sealed or just run 3 subs ? I was leaning on just running 3 as each set of two is on an amp at 2ohm for 1000 Watts I can have the single sub still at equal power as the others and gain airspace idk. Any suggestions would help Obviously a new box is got to happen when I can make that happen will take time.
  6. Have a set of focal 165 krx2 components should you use a hpf or just run full range? I’m running the passive. The crossover has a hpf option and full so I take it full is safe?
  7. Already gave that a try no help. He has to mono sub amps in the rear and both power and ground is off the battery I say ground the amps separate but he’s not willing.
  8. So what’s the best ground loop isolator? I know most say avoid them but if you absolutely had to use one what brand model is the best?

    Focal power 165kR2

    Upgraded to the focal krx2 components they have a rms of 100 watts, I ran direct 14 gauge from amp to the doors. When I check Impedance I get 1.9 ohm per so that’s maximizing that Rockford amp given the power that thing puts out would I be safe going into any gain overlap at all?
  10. Strange mine does it on the amp side, I really only like having it for the clipping light.
  11. I’m using the remote gain control and at high volume I get a thud sound from the subs, also does this any time the system is on say if I pull the wire that’s plugged in to the amp any. So I’m guessing the bass moves the wire . Is this common? I have use a few different wires all do this.

    Currently with the stock wire from behind the H.U to the doors is causing a rise from my speakers my last set that was a 4ohm was reading like 6 ohm in the rear of the car at the amp idk if the car has some crazy stock crossovers from the factory speakers in-line I don’t see or what.

    You are correct! I’m planing on running 14ga direct from amp to crossovers asap once weather is clear and I have a free day. I’m thinking then 0db might be fine cause amp will see 2ohm or I believe focal says 1.8 , but for now with that 3ohm load would -5db be safe ?

    Focal power 165kR2

    They are wired correctly I checked, should I actually use overlap say set at -5db?

    Focal power 165kR2

    So I have the focals on a Rockford p300x2 the speakers are 2ohm with my whimpy stock wire they read 2.9ohm at the amp . My question is with that amp should I even set the gain with the dd1 with any over lap? The speakers are 80rms .i set with 0db now and they seem kinda Weak
