Dd1 and Spotify?


Recommended Posts

Imo spotify is a pain in the ass to add your own files to use on your phone; I've tried, and it seems it is now broken yet again from when I made a post last year about it.

 

The playlist you mention is likely from the Rockford Fosgate 3sixty setup which is completely fine to use. Otherwise I would add the files from https://www.wccaraudio.com/downloads to something like apple music or google music - much easier.

 

The difficulty with using bluetooth is that some head units can actually accommodate higher than the base source level without distorting. For instance my 80 PRS on bluetooth can take +2 or +3, I can't remember, on source level in settings to reach a distortion point at 61; while at 0 source level it just doesn't distort at 62.

 

The video below from 5star shows exactly this; and also shows the CD will get you the same RCA out voltage (4.9) at 0 source level with max volume as the blue tooth (4.9) at 62 with +2 source level. This varies unit to unit though, so you will have to test yourself. Imo just tune with the most common source unit you will be using.

Thank you brother ! I will use the Spotify one then... Then I guess just keep it connected and switch to say siruius and test max volume with that til it distorts?

Only two things I listen to really.

Are you running Spotify on your phone then connecting via BT or are you using Android Auto/Car Play?

I'm running Spotify on phone over Bluetooth I don't use car play,

 

According to dd1 it's telling me my max clean volume is 37/38 with my factory head unit.. does this make sense ? I'm using a Rockford fosgate dsr1
