I'm running my ESK165 passive at 100 per channel from a Massive NX4 and have enough power to push them......the ESK165's have the same power ratings as the HSK130's.....with the JL 300/4 you should have more than enough power to push them.
Run as much power as your speakers can handle, use your ears so you can hear em break up as they start to distort. Your tweeters will not take a ton of power to get loud. I don't run active, but I am sure you can find some Hertz owners that do.
When you have the shop tune your amps, ask them if you could watch them so as you have reference on how to do it later on. I find though a lot of shops just tune and set gains by ear. Find a good shop with an owner that will let you understand your equipment and take the time to help you learn as well. I try to buy from an authorized dealer, so as they are more willing to work with you on teaching about your equipment.
If it was done at a shop and you dont know what you are doing bring it back there.... dont go cranking gains and shit. there are a number of reasons why it may appear to be breaking up at high volume. Just let them have a listen with you and show them what you dont like and have it taken care of.
thanks, the new shop owner is gonna let me do just that
only reason i went to the other shop is cause i figured they knew the speakers they sold inside out plus they used to carry JL so i thought they would be familiar with the amp also
Ok, as long as you plan to get educated along the way that's a good plan. Just hate seeing people blow shit up cus they think the shop automatically cheated them by no cranking the gains or setting the xover a certain way. Not that you said that just in general. GL tho and have fun!
