The ssf is set at 50hz which is all the way up for some reason, where should I try and set it and the bass eq and the x over at?

Lol yeah thats not helping. Drop the ssf only enough that the woofer dont play too hard under tuning.

Since the box is tuned to 32.5 should I set around there to start with?

Sure. Some amps dont necessarily have an accurate SSF value printed near the dial so just make sure you've got it correct by testing.

Thanks man, I'm going to go do some adjustments and I will let y'all know. The sa8s sounded really good so I didn't think about making any changes for the 15.

If your ssf was all the way up with the sa-8's then that zv3 will KILL the lows compared to the 8's.

OK so I adjusted the ssf and it helped some but I didn't play the sub enough to get it really warmed up to see if it will loosen up and play the lows better. The mid bass is very loud though. I'm sure if I had this same set up in a SUV it would be killing lows lol.

You want "SSF" (infrasonic filter) about 1/2 octave below tuning.  if you KNOW you're tuned to around 32.5 then set filter to 25-28 as a starting point and see if subs bottom out etc.

OK so I got in some play time with the sub and did some adjusting on my amp and it sounds better but what I have came to realize is that I simply do not have enough power for this 15" sub. The sundown sae1200 worked really good pushing the 4 sa v1.5 subs and I expected it to push the zv3 15 enough to equal or surpass the loudness of the 8's but it just isn't enough power. I did change the tune down to 30hz and it now has the bottom end lows that I was looking for and I think it had something to do with it being in such a small area of my reg cab Dodge ram. Thanks for everyone's help and this is a great site for information and technical support, thanks again

      It's been a LONG time since I have updated this build on here! Hope my video shows up! 😂 I compete in N.S.P.L. so I only test for that class and don't give out my build specs cause I still compete. My scores are Outlaw with mic in the kick with the subs firing from cargo area. That is how the class I compete in is setup. However for those that like to know I'm about 1db down for a legal sealed score mic on windshield. This video was from start to finish for me reaching my 150db goal I set for my self.

      Hello all I tried to find this question already asked which I am sure it has been but don't spend a lot of time on the forum and for some reason find it really complicated to search for stuff.
      My equipment Dc Audio level 6 18 m4, Sundown Audio Scv7500.
      Question #1 What is a good setting for my low pass crossover?
      Question #2 My old amp is a Scv3000 it suffered water damage several mosfets were destroyed in the event. Would sundown be the best place to send it for repair?
      I stepped up quite a notch from the 3000 to the 7500 but its bad ass! Love the woofer I have had them all seems like and before reconing this one it was the M2 series which lasted longer than anything I have ever had. I reconned it maybe 2 months ago I probably would have never blown it but my 3000 watt amp was clipping like fu. I purchased a cheap pos oscilliscope for $60 off amazon after the recone and found out my amp was clipping by the time I turned it up to 10 on my deck. This is the reason I purchased the 7500 so my now M4 woofer could enjoy clean power.
       
      Thanks for your time I appreciate anybody answering this question one more time.

      Hi there guys after a few suggestions in regards to a new build, Been out the audio game for a couple of years now. (Im from the UK), My UK based forum I used to use seems to have turned from audio to magazine based sadly. 
      My previous build was in a Citroen C2, Consisted of: Ascendant Audio havoc 12" tuned to 33hz, B2 Quota, Focal 165v30, Genesis profile 1 etc,
      Now my new car is a MK1 8n Audi TT 225. 
      I originally had thoughts of going for 2x12" setup but I think im swayed towards 2x15's.
      After a bit of advice on this sort of setup:
      Standard alternator is pushing 120ah
      Subs: Sundown SA-15 x2, How do these run off of 750w. I know there sweet spots like 1k-1.2k, But I can't afford the jump to 2k watt amp/battery.
      Enclosure: Not sure on 15's only ever built 12's, But at a guess Im thinking 7 cu/ft? Ill post in the enclosure page on help regarding this. Tuning wise, had in mind 28hz but maybe around the 31/32? Opinions?
      Amplifier: Sundown SAE-1500D, Any alternatives if this isn't reccomended?
      Battery: Bit of a newbie area to me. Ideally I'd like a big primary battery that can handle the 1500w. Question is do I buy a 12v? Or 14v? I saw the XS Power XE14-50  Which seems to be able to handle 1500w. Any other suggestions would be great.
      Sound deadening: Silentcoat Multilayer, Had great success with this in my previous car so I'll probably jump on that again.
      HU, Front Comps, Comp  Amp undecided yet as I want to work around the sub setup first.
      Design wise, I did a quick sketchup of an idea I have.
      Inside of the TT looks like this:.

      I was thinking a sealed forward facing semi wall I guess sort of setup:.


      Bare In mind nothing in the sketchup drawings are to scale it's just to see my idea.
      By semi wall, It won't be permanent. I'll be sealing off the the edges of the "wall" with high pressure ducting foam. Will be secured to the car floor in regards to L brackets or however else I decide to do so.
       
      Bare in mind im from the UK guys, Not many suppliers out here of some of the american brands, (1 Authorised sundown dealer in the whole of uk...).
       
      Any helps appreciated

      I'm really interested in buying some subwoofers from DC audio or Sundown, but really struggling to find dealers in London.
      Does anyone know any retail dealers I can contact to grab myself some gear? thanks!
