    I just put a bass clef 6k in this weekend
  2. No problem, enjoy your system. Be careful though, car audio is addictive and it will take all of your money.
  3. His hu has adjustable slopes. The cc1 is nice for fine tuning though. I just used mine today to set my new amp.
  4. Leave those gains at zero unless you can max out the hu. Then you can try increasing them. If you can't reach max volume don't adjust them down. Just note what volume you can't play over. Adjusting them down will prevent you from getting full pre out voltage. That is not normal for the equalizer. I've never heard of that before. As far as setting eqs, don't boost weak frequencies, cut the stronger ones. This will help you to avoid clipping your signal. Keep it flat to tune though.
  5. Crossovers on the hu probably have selectable slopes but a fixed number of frequencies. Depending on what you like and need for your particular build you may prefer either one. It's whichever you like best. Use your dd-1 to find the hu max volume. If you can max out the hu, try and adjust the hu gain. You may or may not be able to.
  6. If you don't have a cc1 I'd use the hu. The numbers on the dials on the amps are not accurate.
  7. Crossovers off on hu and amps during tuning. Bass boost off always. After you set up your gains decide whether you want to use the crossovers on the hu or the amp. Don't use both.
  8. My guess is that the belt is loose enough that it doesn't spin the pulley properly
  9. Spray some belt dressing on the belt and see if that helps before you get a new one. If it helps then get one
  10. Droppin hz refunded my money this morning and a new amp is already on the way from crescendo. Had a tracking number within 5 minutes.
  11. Really? I've never ran crescendo, always rockford fosgate. That's disappointing to here. I was going to run ampere audio but droppin hz fucked me on black Friday. Sold me an amp that is on backorder like he had it and now has me getting PayPal involved to get a refund.
