PA D5000.5 setup questions
Ok, it was 15 years ago when I last dealt with custom stero installations so ignore the lack knowledge here because I have forgotten a few things or they simply were not an option on the amp I used way back then compared to now.
Everything is finally installed, minor brain fart with my F/R crossover being wired wrong and no engine noise so no filters required thank God! Needs some tips on the amplifier setup.
Here is what I have questions about...
1. level Control: My HU has three sets of 4 volt pre-amp outputs. How do I set the level control on the amp for the sub, the front and rear speakers? I turned it to 6V and then backed it off to what I think is around 4 volt. Can I use the voltmeter to check the signal being output on the speaker wires to get the actual voltage?
2. SUB Sonic filter and LPF Control: I am setting this by my own intuition and what I think sounds good
3. Full, HPF and BPF switch: I set front and rear speakers to HPF. Manual said this seeting is for midrange and tweeters. Since all four doors are DXI6500 components with crossovers I assumed this is the correct setting. Any advice would be welcomed here.
4. Frequencies: Anyone have any recommended settings for these or should I just play with the settings until it sounds good to me. Obviously I don't want too low of a frequency going to the 6.5's since I have a woofer to handle that.
Thanks guys for the input!
