  1. Hi everyone, im in some serious need of help. I just recently purchase and will be doing my own sub and amp installation. My setup will be JL RD500/1 for the amp and 12w0v3 for the sub. My problem right now is that my 2018 tacoma access cab doesnt have a lot of good grounding point in the back. Unless I drill my own holes which is the last resort, can someone take a look at this picture and tell me if this will be a good ground? In the picture you see, is a bolt down area for the rear small seat. This is the only spot i can find with a bolt that will fit through the ground cable terminal to be bolted down to the car chassis. However as you can see there is a piece of metal (part of the rear seat) between the car chassis and the ground cable. Will this work for the ground? Ive sanded down every side of that seat latch to make a bare metal to metal contact with the car chassis. Will this work? Or will I have to drill the ground directly to the chassis with nothing in between?
  2. Hi, I will soon order a taramps smart 3 for my subwoofer, I wanted to know what was the best method to adjust the gain on this amplifier, that is with the subwoofer connected / disconnected, with a multimeter or simply using the clip LED on the monitor of the 'amps. Thanks to all bassheads!
  3. Reading is difficult 3. Pictures with your name and date on a piece of paper shown with every item being listed is a MUST!
  4. Right or wrong until this point i have always tuned amps by ear and have have really good luck getting things to sound good. After tons of research and watching various videos on YouTube, i know that I can get more out of my systems. Question 1. When setting amps with the dd1 and other special tools, I see how to tune the amp to the max for the gain. I don't know how that would set that for a particular speaker. For example a 6.5 vs a 8in mid range. Obviously they are going to have different capabilities. Also the difference between various types of speaker frequency. 2. When using a crossover, i know you tune frome the source down the line. How do you know where to put all the crossovers before the amp? 3. When using a crossover before a amp, do you just set the amp as flat with no filters? 4. How do you tune the amp to run certain frequencies as recommended by the the speaker and how the max rms power it can handle?
  5. I just got a brand new DD M1D pushing 2 610’s redlines. My gain on the amp is set almost maxed and my friend has a M1D and his is only set about 1/4 of the way and it hits harder than mine. Am I doing something wrong? I have the correct 1 ohm from the subs. I got 14.1 voltage. I’m using a 4 gauge wire with 100a fuse. Do I need to go 0 and 150a fuse? Any input would help thanks
  6. I got a brand new M1D amp from digital design pushing 2 610’s redline. The gain is almost maxed out. And the head unit SW level is +5. Before this amp I had a Memphis VIV 1100.1 and it gain was set more than half and SW level at 0 and pushed the subs pretty good. I got 14.1 voltage to the amp. I got 1 ohm from the subs. Running 4 gauge wire with a 100a fuse l. Do I need to go 0 with 150a fuse?
  7. hello I recently purchased a distortion detector and the problem is I have a BMW 3 series and it does not show the volume level, How would I use this properly without knowing the acutally volume level that its at?, it's the navigation headunit type, Plus if I remove the subwoofer speaker wire from the amp, the door speakers still play loud from the Cd tracks is that normal ? becuase in YouTube videos i see online i dont hear any sound while they set their gains. 2 Amps: Mrv500, do I set the LP filter back to 80hrz after its tuned? 2 subwoofers: Pioneer TS-W309D4 12" Champion Series Subwoofer with Dual 4 Voice Coil
  8. a good friend of mine called me up yesterday and said he had 2 Soundstream MC500's for sale and would hook me up proper. Of course i said yes and to bring them by. Back in 1989, i JUST graduated High School, my parents moved away and i didn't have but a wooden nickel to my name. I couldn't even come close to something of this caliber at that time. Anyway, when he told me he really needed the money i figured it was my duty to make him an offer he couldn't refuse and try to take both of them . I couldn't help it, as soon as i saw them i knew i had to at least try. He took my offer and they are both mine. No, i am not sure what i am going to do with them just yet. I will open them up, show the guts and run them on the dyno at some point i know that! It would be fun to do an oldschool SQ build with all vintage Soundstream amps some day. But just having them in my collection feels so nice More pics and some vids coming soon! Serial #25XX (i forgot to take a pic) and Serial #31XX (also forgot to take a pic). Ill have more updates to this post as i pull them apart and look at the guts
  9. Hello everyone im new to the forums just made an account today but I've always looked for info on here just finally made an account. I recently ordered my dd1 recently and finally got it home today. Ive always had friends tune my amps in the past but this time I wanted to give it a try myself. My amps are autotek sm4 1000.4 and autotek MM2500.1 if yall needed to know. When I go and set my gains up on the amps im not sure what to turn up and down. I have went through all the topics and couldn't really understand much so that's why im asking. 4 multi amp it says put in full and db at 0 but for the LPF and HPF do I just crank both all the way or leave it alone? Because it says turn frequency all the way up. Im new to tuning so I am unsure on what to turn up or down on HPF and LPF. Mono 0db subsonic, level, bass nob, and LPF so do I put the bass nob all the way up and crank the subsonic and LPF all the way before I do the ggains? Im not too sure on subsonic and LPF If yall can help guide me through this that would be wonderful and any information is appreciated thankyou everyone!

  11. Well I just want to take the time and thank you guys down at DC for everything they did for me. A few months ago you guys helped me pick out what subs would work best for my truck ended up getting the new level 4s M2's was really impressed in how quick they got to my house and how great they looked. Also thank you for this past weekend on helping me on a Saturday with wiring my subs. you guys have a great customer service and have a great audited toward helping out people and making sure they are satisfied with what they get. My 3.5k came in today and all i can say that thing looks flawless, absolutely beautiful. I thank everyone down at DC for all the help they have given me and the great items i now have for my truck. I hope to someday be a part of the team and see you guys at some shows and compete with you for Team DC. I am proud to own some great products and i cant wait to hear them this weekend. This week is going to be a long week of anticipation on waiting to hear the subs. but i thought i would do it right and get another battery and get it DD-1 so everything is perfect. Thank you guys again i would recommend you guys to anyone for anything. Keep up the great work and I will see you guys around hopefully. DC FTW!
  12. Is 100 dollars a good deal for a memphis 1200 watt mono amp? does anyone know how much they are new or how good they are?
  13. What is a good four channel amp with good sound quality with around 100-130 RMS at 4 ohms? I would like to stay in the $250 to $300 price range if possible, but something less expensive than that would definitely a plus lol. Any opinion would be greatly appreciated!

  16. I'm adding another amp to my car, i have a zx1000.1 mono for the subs already and im adding the dx400.4 for the speakers. Should i expect a voltage drop, and if so how sufficient will it be? Right now with only the mono i have about 14.4-.7 volts on average when everything is running and turned up. I have an 01 cadillac deville which already has some stock beefy wiring to it. Stock electrical wiring, but I will add another battery as my next upgrade. What can I expect voltage wise when i add the second amp? Thanks

  19. Alright guys I have an issue, I'm just not sure exactly where or what. Ill try to include as many details as possible. My current set up: 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee with "premium" speakers and amp. Details on that here Pioneer AVH-5500BHS bypassed Rockford Fosgate T1500.1BD 1 15" Fi BL @ 1Ohm 4GA power wire So to my issue. I've had this amp for about a year and a half now. About 6 months ago i noticed that occasionally I would hear a very high pitched humming and my amp wouldn't come on. This always happened when I started my car, i assumed that it was because the inside of my Jeep was hot so it went into protective mode. Yesterday it happened again, drove it home, left about an hour later (parked in shade) and it came right back on. This morning I was driving to work and it was working fine and suddenly my amp died. Got to work and checked the fuse, it was blown. I've never blown a fuse until today. Thought it was a fluke and put another in at lunch, it was hot inside my Jeep again (all black is HELL) and it did the humming so let it sit. about 30 mins later it came on when i stared my Jeep. Started to listen to a song and the moment I turned it up I blew another damn fuse! 2 in one day, what the hell! I come home disconnect my amp, check all of my wiring which i believe is good. Reconnect all of it, I have the power light come on the amp.... but no bass. Turn it off and restart my Jeep, and i get the humming, amp isn't on. I learned that the humming is coming from the 2 front speakers on the dash not the amp. Took out the fuse and put it back in, I went to check the power (not running but just power) and i have the light but once again no bass so i turn the Jeep on and now I'm here. Amp not working and humming constantly coming front 2 dash speakers. Does anyone have any ideas of what this could be? Bad wiring somewhere? Faulty factory amp interfering? Bad RF amp? I'm at a loss any help will be greatly appreciated.
  20. I've got a Orion HCCA 12.2 in a ported box and I'm in need of an amp but unsure which brand or wattage I should get. My sub is rated for 2000 rms 4000 max power. I plan to wire it down to 1 ohm so it needs to be 1 ohm stable. Suggestions? Help? Thanx
  21. I am thinking about putting 1 12" Sundown ZV4 12" REV 2 in the trunk of my bmw 530i. Most likely going to face the box towards the seats since my seats fold all the way down. I will most likely get a 220 amp H/O alt from exsessive amperage, its about the biggest I could find from a notable company (singer, mechman, dc power, or anyone else that might be named has already been contacted and they wont make one for my car). I will probably have 2 extra batts (xs power d3100s probably) and a stock replacement, big 3 and a couple runs of 0 guage ran. My questions are, What size amp can I get away with here? I was hoping to go with a sundown SCV-3000d just to keep it in the sundown family. Would this be too much for a single ZV4 12? Reccomendations welcome... Would a straight back facing box or maybe a rear deck blowthrough get me better numbers? Would the elictrical I have be enough to keep this amp happy? Please help me out, all opinions are welcome. Any opinions on possible numbers? Any help is greatly appreciated. (No im not a "sundown fanboy" I actually just had a 15" FI BTL N2 on a BC3500d in my last vehicle, I just dont have the room for it in this one and wanted to try something new)
  22. I plan to purchase some Sundown Audio equipment within the next 2 or 3 days, and I would like some suggestions on where to purchase it. No "brick and mortar" dealers near me, woofers etc. is not an option, 800 woofers is not an option, SSA is looking like my only option, so how is their shipping, customer service? I don't want to order from somewhere that has a ton of old stock, but don't want to wait 2 or 3 weeks for a build either. I have read mixed reviews on SSA's shipping times, but only from one side of course. Any other options other that the ones mentioned? Also would LOVE a coupon code, or forum member discount maybe?! Input appreciated!
  23. Hey errrrrbody. I am very close to locally purchasing a ZX350.4 for my first mids & highs amp for a great price in my city up here in Canada. the reason the deal is good is because the amp is supposedly not working properly. What the seller has said in his ad, and as well as through text messages is that it "Works great but won't turn off. The technician said the FAT must have been fried (whatever that means) other than that it still works." and.. "it turns on the moment you hook it up to the battery but it won't shut off even with the car turned off. It was bought brand new but I just shorted it when I installed it." Has anyone ever dealt with a problem like this? Is it repairable? I personal had my bass amp repaired at some circuit board repair company in town so that may be an option for me as well. Please advise!!!
