Remote Gains/Punch Gain Controls

13 posts in this topic

So I have a couple of questions that I'd like to address before buying my R500-1. My first question is about the remote control knob that comes with the amp. Say that I have the gain at half, When the remote knob is at max does that mean that the gain would be half or actually all the way? My second question is how useful is the Punch level control @ 45hz? Most likely I don't think I'm going to mess with it since I currently do not have an O-Scope.

Thanks.

If your gain on your amp is set at 50%, then when you turn the gain control knob all the way up, then it will only be at 50% gain.

right the knob is bass boost not gain control at all. think of it as an EQ really

not bass boost, it turns the volume of the subs up or down in short

Actually, if you check out the Prime amps on the RF website it says:

Punch Level Control

(when connected, is linked to "gain control" to provide remote output level)

So the Punch and Power amps have bass boost and the Prime amps get gain control. REALLY wish they had this for the Power amps rather than the bass boost. I'd like to be able to cut gain for daily listening, but all I can do with the knob for mine is mess up the EQ.

On my RF T500-1bdCP I use my Remote Punch EQ (Optional Controller)all the time.My amp didn't include a remote knob, I had to buy one! Most of the time I have it set to 1/4 for SQ and 1/2 for bass and then 3/4 for noise. Once you have set your gains right, you don't even need to mess with the EQ, just adjust the knob for daily use depending on the level of SQ you want. – The Remote Punch EQ connection is made with a RJ-45 cable and can be installed in a variety of ways for easy control access.The control is used to boost low and/or high frequency information to overcome road noise. The remote overrides the Punch EQ on the amplifier when

connected.

I have the PEQ knob for both my T1500-1bd's and I hate it, I wish instead of bass boost knobs, they cut gain. THAT'S what I want, I hate having that horrible peak in the music. Plus, it seems to distort the signal, so I never turn it up, I figure it's clipping my XL's all to hell...
