Hopefully someone can help me out here, I would appreciate it very much!! To start off I just recently purchased a Epicenter and I would like to know how to setup with with my amp. What I mean is how to correctly set up my gains and setting in the Epicenter. My setup is nothing big at all. I have an Almani HA 600.4 (300 watts RMS) which was given to me and I have it in bridged mode and a 12 inch JBL GX 1200 watt sub with 250 Watts RMS. I want to know how to correctly set it all up so in the end im not clipping, distorting or killing my sub. Since I got it for a week now ive been slowly able to get it to where I want it, but I want to perfect it. Current setting on the Epicenter is the "Wide" setting is 1/4 way up and the "Sweep" setting is 3/4 up. Bass output is stock at 5 Volts on the inside untouched. Also does anyone know the input voltage that my amp is capable of taking in, I talked to audio control and they said to check on that if not i will have to adjust the bass output on the epicenter? Appreciate it if someone would help out im fairly new to using a Epicenter.
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?
Almost done building my door panels which will have 2 6.5s 1 8in and 1 tweeter in each. I do not have any crossovers and want to keep my factory head unit. Iam looking to possibly getting a DSP instead of wiring up a shit ton of crossovers. Can anyone reccomend a good one with 8 channels or possible setup alternatives that will meet my needs? I live in Hawaii so the only options I've seen locally were a Masconi for 1k and RF 3sixty for 700. I'm not worried about having the most amazing SQ I just want to make sure I have them all tuned properly as I don't want to blow any of them. If needed the vehicle is a 2016 Veloster. Both sets of 6.5s are Deaf Bonce Arnold's pushed my a Deaf Bonce AAK 201.4. The 2 8s and 2 tweeters are Rockford Fosgate Pro speakers pushed by a T600.4.
