  1. I'm not a pro in this area so please be patient. I recently had my sub installed at a shop in my area along with an amp and a lc7i. Whenever I crank the volume up I get this low rumbling sound from the sub. It makes this noise even when there is no bass in the music I'm listening to (i.e. intro, outro). However, it doesn't make this noise while the music is paused. When I looked in my trunk i noticed that they ran all of my signal cables with my power and ground, so I figure there's a ground issue. I went back to have it looked at and the guy told me that since my car is so small it will make that noise due to the amount of bass that I have, and if it was in the trunk of a small car instead of the back of an suv I wouldn't hear it. None of this sounds correct to me, am I correct in assuming that he was just being lazy? I also noticed that my bass knob does not turn my amp all the way off. When the knob is all the way down I can still hear my sub, just at a much lower volume. Is this normal? Oh yeah, due to my sub being a 2ohm and my amp not being 1ohm stable I am forced for now to operate at a 4ohm load. This is only pushing 750 watts to a sub that 1100 watts is recommended for. The instructions say that I can safely power it with 500-1200 watts rms. Could this be a contributing factor? 2009 BMW X3 single Kicker Comp Q 15 Kicker ZXS1500.1 Audiocontrol LC7i
  2. Hi, I am new here and am currently installing a new system into my car. I just wanted to ask if it is ok to screw a amp directly into the metal chassis of the car (I know that there is not a gas tank behind it). This is the same part that the amp is grounded to. I just wanted to ask because I got a amp that once would not come out of protection unless it was not screwed into the car. The amp I am working with is a P400x4 running at 2 ohms. Thanks! -Josh
  3. Quest for 150db

    I'm currently running two dd 712s on a soundstream t1.4000DL with skyhigh 2/0 amp kits as well as a DC 270a alt. I'm currently metering 143.7 and would like to know what my best course of action is to get as close to or go over 150dB as I can. Any tips or pointers would be greatly appreciated
  4. I have a NNBS GMC sierra extended cab. I want a clear sounding system that gets loud and have decided to go with 4 crescendo pwx 6.5" , with one in each door. Also 4 Ft1 tweeters, with one in each door. I am not sure if these mids will fit but I am willing to cut the factory bracket to make them work. FYI I will also be getting an amp for these speakers and have it mounted on the back wall. I have done the big 3 with 0 gauge and also a dual battery setup. Im taking my two 12s out and getting a sundown x15 with a custom built box to fit the back seat that my Hifonics brz1200.1d will be running. My question is how do I go about wiring the tweeters and mids with a crossover or the crescendo tweeter crossover. The speakers and tweeters come in 2 choices of 4 or 8 ohms and I am not sure which ohms I would need for the tweeters and mids to use along with a regular crossover or the ft1 tweeter crossover. I will be running new wire to the amp from each speaker crossover in the doors so my main question is what wiring configuration and which ohms do I need to compare for a correct setup?
  5. I have a pioneer avh-x1700s and it doesnt come with bluetooth/hands-free, can it still be installed separate ?
  6. Just got all my equipment and now its time to get batteries, I want to usethe XS batteries but have a little bit of a budget issue. Stinger batteries fit the budget but I like the XS stuff. If I have 4 RF T-1500 BDCP's and 2 RF T-1000-4AD's How many of what type of XS Batteries would I use. One more question, is there Wire any good? Thanks for the help everyone
  7. Where on the site can I talk to steve or a member of his staff for specifically inquiring about the cost of a professional car audio install or technical assistance?
  8. Allows the retention of the factory BOSE Amplifier and speakers when adding an aftermarket radio to 911, Boxster and Cayman vehicles Not compatible with 2005 911 Turbo / 996 Chassis with Black faced radio. The MOST-HUR/997 provides audio integration into the stock amplified sound system, allowing the end-user to replace their factory radio with an aftermarket Navigation/DVD head unit, while retaining the factory amplifier and speakers. Installation is easy, with only 5 wires connected to the vehicle, an included antenna adapter and a MOST fiber optic extension. The MOST-HUR/997 supplies accessory power, illumination, VSS (vehicle speed pulse), foot brake, parking brake signals and infrared steering wheel commands to Kenwood or Alpine (only) aftermarket radios. Note: If the vehicle does not have the Bose audio system, the speaker connections will need to be hardwired to the factory harness from the original radio. Also, the subwoofer in some vehicles uses a secondary amplifier, which also needs to be directly connected to the aftermarket radio. A high-quality Double-DIN dash installation kit in either Black or Silver is also available, and is highly recommended for a professional looking install.
