I finally added the AMM-1 to my toolbox. I received it last week and of course I decided to do some bench testing with it. However, I was pretty disappointed to discover that my DD-1 and Oscilloscope are both detecting clipping BEFORE my AMM-1 does. (See Attached Video) Can anyone else with an AMM-1 and a DD-1 or Oscilloscope confirm this same performance? My DD-1 is the older "Made in the USA" version but my AMM-1 is the newer "Made in China" version, so could it be a quality control issue? I'm just wondering if I might have gotten a defective AMM-1 or something. I mean it's gotta be defective right? You can clearly see the signal is clipped on the oscilloscope long before the AMM-1 ever picks it up. Of course the DD-1 is all over it though so why would the $450 AMM-1 not be performing just as good as the DD-1? I tried sending an Email to [email protected] but haven't received a reply yet. @[email protected]'Amore O-Scope vs DD-1 vs AMM-1.mp4
Hello all, new to this forum and I’ve stumbled across here many times for research. Now brings my question and I’m hoping someone will be able to provide me with some insight with the DD-1+ (which I also recently purchased and have used a few times). While finding my maximum undistorted volume on the headunit, I notice the distortion light illuminates at about halfway on my 2016 VW Passat stock headunit but if i go a click up... the light stays out and continues to stay out until the headunit’s volume is maxed out. Now why is this happening, it’s been puzzling me all day, does my HU just distort at one point for some odd reason? Or is this device just capable of detecting such small amounts? So far I’m highly satisfied with it just have this very question with my situation. I have a P1000x1bd amplifier that has the “clean setup” and is equipped with led that comes on when the HU distorts, but this stays off consistently throughout the process. My guess would be the DD-1+ Is superior to detecting it over the clean setup, but like I said I’m not too sure, any insight helps. Thanks guys!
i'm new to the spl worl and loving it. i have 4- power acoustik mofo 152s on a hifonics bre2500. i keep reading about people blowing subs by clipping them. what is clipping and what causes it?
I have a dual audio deck that i guess rms at 18watts. is there any other way than using a DD1 to find the clipping volume. I know how to use a DVM to find the rms on my sub amp abut i wanna get the best volume from the deck first. Secondly. Everything in my jeep is stock except for the deck, mono amp, and subs. .... alt, battery, everything else is stock. im only running 250rms and my lights dimm a little on heavy bass (yes i know its only 250 but it slams for just that) i want to upgrade. 12's down to 10's for more punch but go from 250rms to maybe 500ish to 1000rms (for now). and get a 4 channel for my speakers and get some decent compenents. What are the best things to upgrade on a budget that are necessary for running a god amount of power. Thanks
