    Subs Hello 👋 I’m new here and fairly new to car audio. I’ll cut to the chase. Last summer I got my hands on 2 Skar EVL-15 D2 for a heck of a deal. They came in a triple x box with 2 2 1/2 ports in the middle and a 2500w Rockville RVA-M2. Now that I’ve done more research on these subs and amp I...

    Hello. I have a Hertz H8 DSP that I bought used. I've been trying for two days to crossover my speakers. I've ran the speaker configurator in every possible way and it still joins the crossovers as if it's component sets and they're all on the same amp or something. I have three 2-channel amps...

    I've been using Spotify for a while now and was pretty happy with it. Today, one of my coworkers wanted to show me some songs so they popped in their dead mouse CD and the songs had a lot more punch then what I was used to my system sounding like. I pulled up the same song on my phone and it...
