    So it is Saturday, and some times people do not work on Saturdays so not getting an instant response from a company is usually a fairly common thing.

    How did you connect the CC-1 and or DD-1 test probes to the amp?

    Sometimes with some amplifiers you must use the negative probe of the DD-1/CC-1 on the negative speaker output of the amp.
    Sometimes you must use the negative probe of the DD-1/CC-1 on the negative power wire of the amp.
    This really depends on the amp, the type of RCA inputs on the amp, if the amp uses a differential style rca connection, the type of class the amp maybe such as class a a/b, d, full bridge or half bridge etc.
    It can vary a lot from what Ive noticed over the years tuning amps.

    Also where you using the left channel or the right channel?
    Sometimes it doesn't matter, sometimes you have to use the left channel or right channel. I cant remember the reasoning behind this but iirc I remember it being explained in the manual or in a post by Tony D'amore.
    So try both channels!

    Also make sure there are no crossovers being used on the 4 channel amp, make sure that all settings on the amplifier are set to Fullpass and not Highpass or Lowpass.
    Same goes for the headunit, disable/turn off any sort of high pass filter on the head unit, turn any EQ settings to flat, and turn Bass, Midrange, and Treble to 0 or flat.

    So go through the steps and try different things. Read the instruction manual because there is a lot of useful information in there.
    There is no problem with the DD-1/CC-1 because you said they worked fine to do the sub amp so that leaves it to be something you are either doing wrong, or due to something with the amp that requires it to be hooked up differently.
    Report back once you tried the above things I mentioned.



    Well, the Saturday thing is normal, but I emailed on a Thursday, Wednesday, Monday. I only emailed recently on the 2nd of May, which is a Saturday. I do understand the Saturday email thing though. 


    I connected my DD-1 and CC-1 lead's to both my amp and my friends amp. All though the speaker terminals, I tried both right output and left output of each terminal. I didn't think about using the negative power wire for my connection, I'll have to try this next time I am over at my friends house. 


    As for the amps tested, I used a Skar Audio 1500.1Dv1, JL Audio JX 360/4 these amps being mine, and my friends amps, which were an Apline 500mrp and a Kenwood Excelon Gouriki Series 4 chan amp. I used the same way to tune all amps. Leads to positive speaker and negative speaker in their respective places. The crossover for the 4 channels were set to off as well as on my headunit. 


    For the DD-1/CC-1 I saw that I can send them in to get calibrated, I think I will go with that option. I don't think I did anything wrong when using the DD-1/CC-1 but I am human and am not perfect.

  2. Well I figured I'd make one last attempt to get help through the forums, I've sent an email, multiple actually but never got a reply once. I was told, from a reliable source that if I emailed the support on wccaraudio then the techs had gotten my email and were looking at it. Never heard back from support and I have not heard back from the reliable source, even after dming and pinging them in a chat. 


    I also sent wccaraudio an email from two different emails, both of which work and are used on a constant basis. So not total sure why I never got an answer. 

  3.  I have a problem with my DD-1 and CC-1, I bought my DD-1 and CC-1 back in 2013. 

    When I tried to find the max distortion on my friends headunit using my DD-1 I got the subwoofer amp measured. But when I tried to do his 4 channel amp, a Kenwood Excelon X600F my DD-1 could not measure the distortion from the headunit though this amp. For one thing I noticed that even when I tuned my amps way before my friends, my DD-1''s signal light would flicker, never stay solid. Same thing happened with my friends amps. I didn't think anything of it until  tried set the gain for my friends sub amp, an Alpine 500MRV, that showed no distortion at of the gain positions. Just to clarify I put the correct track in on the CD. For his sub amp I tried all three settings on the track just to make sure that I was not going crazy, 3,5,7. None of these made distortion light go off. But when I set the gains on my friends 4 channel, I could set the gain correctly.

    To see if I did anything wrong I retuned my system after I got the weird results of my friends amps. I noticed the same thing, the signal light was always just blinking never solid, I could get it to stay solid red but if I turned it down one notch then the light went green but with the blinking.
    The same thing sorta happened on my CC-1, I cant set the crossover because it never goes blue. When I set my system back in 2013 my DD-1 and CC-1 worked perfectly. Now, I have just moved from TN back to CT, I should mention that in that time frame of 2014-2019 I did not use my DD-1 or CC-1 at all, it was just sitting in my bedroom. I have changed the batteries several times on both my devices and I have also at least for the CC-1 have held the "off" button for 2 seconds to clear it but nothing has seemed to have helped. For my CC-1 when I was trying to tune the systems I was working on my CC-1 signal light was slowly blinking. I tried to turn it off, and hold for 2 seconds, that didn't work. I then just took the battery out to see if that would fix it, that didn't work.
    For the subwoofer amp, both in my system and my friends system I used track 7. For both my 4 channel and my friends I used track 4.
    I emailed WCCAUDIO but I never got any reply so now I am trying here.
  4. you-wont-believe-where-UPS-left-this-pac

    Tracey Sole, a mother in Barnhart, Missouri was understandably upset when she read a UPS InfoNotice indicating that the new tablet she purchased for her daughter’s Christmas gift was left, “In Black Trash Can.” The delivery was made on garbage pickup day and when Tracey looked in her black trash can for the delivery, it was nowhere to be found.

    She told KTVI Fox 2, “I was crying all night last night. I was like, I came home and I, I mean, I saved for months to get that for my daughter and then for them to just throw it in the trash.” She explained that the family keeps their trash can on the curb because of ice on their steep driveway. Tracey figured that because the bin was empty, the driver probably thought the trash had already been picked up.

    Tracey was distressed and contacted UPS. “I called them that night and they put me on hold, then they hung up on me after sitting on hold for about 20 minutes. So, I called back and sat on hold for another 10 minutes, which just made things worse because I was already upset.” Tracey said, “I was trying to talk to the guy on the phone and he’s like, ‘You’re going to have to calm down. I can’t understand what you’re saying.’ And I’m like, ‘Well you don’t understand.’ But it was, it was awful. It was probably the worst feeling.”

    UPS investigated what happened and it was found that the driver did indeed leave the package in Sole’s trash can. The company told the station that,”…drivers are trained to leave packages out of sight and protected from inclement weather,” a practice the company calls, “driver release.” UPS apologized for the mistake and eventually agreed to buy a new tablet for Ms. Sole’s daughter before Christmas.

    After the story was broadcast, people offered to purchase a replacement tablet for Tracey’s daughter, or money for a new one. She refused all of those offers, but suggested that those donations instead be made to Toys for Tots.

    Has anyone else had a similar experience?

    I read about that and watched the video on yahoo, While its understandable to place a package in a place that's out of reach of potential theft, Why of all places would the UPS person not put it by the house? In the video it is said that the garbage can was at the bottom of the hill by the driveway, I don't think anyone would think to walk up to to the house if they don't have to do something other than just being curious, Especially if its located on a hill. Even being said, the UPS person walked up the driveway or drove up it to the house and then either walked back down or drove back down and then just thought that after putting the note that indicated where it was left on the door to put it in the garbage can.

  5. I don't understand, what is Doge meme and how did it get so big? I don't know where it came from but I think its stupid, Can someone explain what's so funny about it and why its so big?



    Cyanide & Happiness

    All things that people find funny that not everyone will understand. Have you ever had to explain memes to someone? It's just like that trying to explain doge. I find them hilarious

    Someone once explained the meme of 412crv or someone named around that, I understood that lol.
