View Full Version : voltage of speakers?
02-19-2007, 12:12 PM
can someone tell me what the voltage should be set at (for the gain) for these speakers with the following amp
front speakers - http://www.crutchfield.com/S-ygMwuw5s0KZ/cgi-bin/ProdView.asp?g=400&I=107DB6500
rear speakers -
i have the JL audio guide to setting the gain but it only shows u how to find the voltage you need with their amps and speakers...

also...where can i download a 1khz test tone....thats what i should use right..?

Some good reading here, as well as the calculator.....

100 Watts -- 1.0 Ohms, V=10.0 -- 2.0 Ohms, V=14.14 -- 4.0 Ohms,
i saw that
so does that meana with 100 watt rms speakers i need to set my gains to 14.14 volts or does it go by the RMS of my amp which is 80x4 so i would follow this
80 Watts -- 4 Ohms, V=17.88 -- 6 Ohms, V=21.90 -- 8 Ohms, V=25.29
and set my gain voltage to 17.88?

You go by the RMS of the amp.... unless you want your speaker to get less than that amount of power.

so i need to get a voltmeter and turn my gain until the speakers terminals are reading 17.88 volts

as long as you're running the amp with a 4 ohm load, yes

alright so i had some audio installation place set my amp but my volume on the cd payer goes up to 35 but he said don't go over 25 and when i do it gets all distorted is that because he has the gain set too high...
