  1. the charger cuts off when it the battery is fully charged. it took all night until half way to the next day to finish charging at 6 amps but now the battery is fully charged and the car starts properly now. but that took a long time!
  2. Mine is a dumb charger and just applies constant current constant voltage up to 6 amps and 14.7v so the battery wasnt even drawing much current at first for some reason. but after a few hours it drawed more current and the voltage dropped for a while then started rising again with the current staying at 6 amps
  3. but now how batteries work. shouldn't they immediately reach full charge current and slowly rise in voltage over time? not immediately reach full charge voltage then increase in current and drop back down to like 12.98v then slowly go back up in voltage again? My other batteries just reach max current immediately and start at like 12 to 13v and slowly increase until they reach 14.7v then the current slowly drops until its full.
  4. I dont know if its charging properly or if theres soemthing wrong with the battery because at first the voltage shot up to 14.7v immediately and only drawed about 5 amps of current but over time it started drawing more current and dropped down to 12.98v before starting to go back up again slowly it just seems weird and strange to me. why didnt it immediately start drawing 6 amps immediately? my other smaller batteries all work fine and dont do the same thing with the same charger.
  5. ok immediately when i put it on charge my charger was set to 6 amps and the battery was super dead only starting at 11.5v or something and the voltage quickly shot up to 14.7v and it only drawed 5 amps I decided to let it sit on charge and a few hours later the voltage dropped down to 12.98v and the current increased up to 6 amps. i checked back every 30 minutes after and the voltage has slowly started increasing. its now at 13.1v at 6 amps. battery is stone cold. not warm or anything.
  6. i was just seeing how low of a voltage it can run on. and that was the quickest and simplest easiest way to test it. because 9v alkaline batteries have just enough capacity to slowly drop the voltage rather than plummeting rapidly
  7. if i just run some music at listening volume with high pass filter to my stereo speakers from the amp it keeps running down to 6.2v running on an alkaline 9v battery and hasn't shut off yet i have cut the bass just to see when it will cut off and its still going How is it able to run down to such low voltage without cutting out? does it not have low voltage protection? its at 5.8v and still on somehow it finally starts cutting in and out around 5.5v
  8. Maybe some kind of really really smooth paint that they cant attach a nest to? so theres not raw metal exposed otherwise just keep on spraying them with some long reach foaming wasp sprays we've had 2 in the last couple years but they are gone now. I was also thinking lining the whole thing with something that is very unsuitable surface for them to attach a nest to. double sided tape. or some something they won't like to be around.
  9. could by your alternator changing into "float" mode charge once the battery reaches full. try revving it and see if it changes? or try restarting the car and see if it immediately goes to 14v or stays at 13.2v? 13.2v is a bit low for float charge though unless its really really hot where your at. check the amperage draw of the battery and alternator to see if anything is dragging the voltage down by drawing a lot of current/amps or see if simply nothing is drawing much current/amps at all.
  10. try uploading the images to an image sharing site and then share the direct image url as a link on here. so that you dont have to worry of the tiny image size limit
  11. I cant change the slope on my amp. its fixed internally with resistors or capacitors or something built in. so I have to stick to 40dB if I raise it up at all. I start hearing vocals and mids coming through my sub. and I dont want any vocals or mids coming through my sub. it sounds fine the way it is.
  12. the slope on my amp is probably like 8dB or 12dB so thats probably why i have mine set so low plus my room resonates HARD around 45 to 100hz. so i definitely dont need a boost of bass in that area. my stereo speakers can fully do the job at 45 to 50hz and they are only 4-inch 2-way bookshelf style speakers. so my sub does everything below 45hz mostly. i still have an EQ set for -15dB at 45hz and -18dB at 50hz with a smooth curve from 50hz to 100hz going to 0dB because its way too boomy otherwise. insanely punchy sounding but i dont care for that kind of punchy sounding bass i like lower deep clean bass.
  13. set the low pass filter lower. like 40hz not higher. turn it to the left more until you stop hearing words coming from your subs and only hear bass and make sure its actually switch on to low pass filter. your subsonic filter should be set if you have a ported subwoofer box but its not necessary if you have a sealed subwoofer box set subsonic filter just below the boxes tuning frequency if its a ported subwoofer box.
  14. i cant delete my reply. oops. and it depends if it sounds good to you. you should be using low pass filter on subs. not high pass filter. thats weird. but i have my subs set to 40hz low pass filter. and my speakers are just set to high pass filter around 80 or something. my room gain/resonance fills in between 40 and 80 easily. so i dont need to have them crossed over around the same frequency
  15. use a -0dB track if you want to be sure they wont get any clipping ever. you have more headroom but slightly less wattage on quieter bass hits. but its safer on your subwoofers. less chance of cooking them if you accidentally play one of those bad "bass boosted" songs. and thats weird. take a look at this chart to get the wattage you want. and adjust the gain and voltage accordingly.
