    Hi everyone, This is my first post here so I'd like to start off by saying nice to meet you all. I have had a sealed enclosure in my ute for a good 6 months now. I went sealed as I thought I was very constricted for size having only gone off forum research from others previously taking on the...

    I am attempting to model my full system (i.e sub/ mid bass/ mid range/ tweeter) to align the phase based on crossover points of each driver to get a baseline before tuning. That said, I have found no discussion on the difference between the System Overall Transfer Function Phase graph and the...

    First post here and new to the forum, apologies if covered elsewhere. Question on gains and target curves for active 4-way SQ setups. Most curves I’ve looked at depict a 12-15 dB roll off from subs to highs. Does anyone use differing test tone levels to set gains and would this help build in a...

    I'm looking for recommendations for a good Car Audio Tuner in Michigan or Northern Ohio/Indiana. Already have a full install with good equipment and sound deadening that uses a TWK-88 DSP for EQ.

    I have an active system. Since my DSP allows for multiple presets/modes, I was thinking of making a preset for tailgating (playing music outside the vehicle for say, a pre-concert parking lot pre-game!) Anyone ever done anything like this? Any tips? My effort was I guess just going to be tuning...

    Been working on an install on my '19 Civic for a few weeks now. I decided to run a JL Fix86 to clean the signal and fix the bass roll-off that is built into the Factory HU. After getting everything set up and multiple attempts/tweaks I consistently get a constant static noise coming from...

    So I'm ready to tune my amps and head unit for my new system! I'll be tuning using an o-scope and test tones. I had been going off a popular post over at SMD, but I ran into two conflicting statements from the author. Just looking to clear up the right answer. First statement: Step 1: Tuning...

    Today I installed a MTX Terminator TNE212D loaded sub enclosure with a Rockford Fosgate R500X1D amp. Everything seems to be working as it should and all that's left is to set the amp properly. I'm using the factory head unit and have tapped into the rear stock subs for the amp input. Many of the...

    Rookie Tuner here so please be gentle: Each time I tune my system to match the standard ATF curve on the Helix I am disappointed with the resulting midbass, specifically I lose all punch in the mid bass area. I'm running a Helix P6 120 watts to Hertz ML 6.5's in the doors LPF at 250 hz -24db...

    I'm relatively new to car audio as this is my first personal system, but I'm completely out of ideas as to what may be going on even after months of searching. I bought a 600w subwoofer package back in March of this year which included a Boss CXXM1250 amp and an Audiopipe TXX BD1-12 sub. The...
