But you don't have the ability to really tune your system. You have a crossover and a gain adjustment. You don't have any more EQ than you had before. You don't have L and R output levels.
I'm afraid this experience is why I don't recommend that people amplify HiFi speakers.
do you recommend putting in an EQS then? I wanted to stay away from adding extra components/wieght to the car.
Yeah, I guess I'm going to have to see about blown speakers. (I made sure to set the gain way below the maximum voltage output specified for 2 ohm subs).
don't get me wrong, the car sounds better than stock, just probably not mind blowing as I'm sure it would if I threw in some Morels and sws's. (which is ok for me because i don't want to hurt my ears
