    In my system my hu turns on, followed by bit ten, then amps. So does your amp turn on before the ms8?

    I'm curious why you need a cap on the tweeter. I don't have any and my tweets are fine off the bit ten. Pops sound like clipping to me .

    Just go ahead with the sr's. Where are the tweeters going?

    Cross the sub/mids around 50-60 hz 24db/octave.
    Cross tweeters 3-4khz, 12 or 24 db/octave .

    My guess is that the initial tune is...

    Still tweaking but I have it much better now. Main issues, bringing down 2k on up, raising the 160 -250 by a little, and raising the 800- 1.2k a little. Overall left right balance is spot on though...

    Bit Tune Impressions

    Yesterday I took my car to a great shop in Mesa, AZ that has been using the Bit Tune with success for a while so I had them run the system to tune my Bit Ten.

    I would like to quickly summarize my...

    (1) I would go with a 10 or 12 inch sub, 12 being better. Polk MM, JL W3 or W6, Arc Audio, are just a fiew to consider.
    (2) I would get DVC, so that you can pull more power from the amp. If your...

    You can try to use RTA as a guide but in the end you will have to learn to tune with your ears. A flat RTA is awful because we don't hear all frequencies at the same intensity. If you want to RTA I...

    I highly recommend lowering that sub filter down to 60Hz. Your sub is generating way too much midbass that may be muddying things up. How does everything sound without the sub. If it doesn't sound...

    Sounds good. I imagine that you won't have to cut as much as me in the high end because you have paper woofers that won't have cone breakup and you have a three way so your mids extend better and...

    From the looks of it, my guess is that your system sounds awful. Definitely lower your xovers to 50 or 60Hz. Also switch over to the Linkwitz Riley filter type. Everything from 1k on up is way too...

    I'm suggesting that you not power your rear speakers at all or at most power them a tad with deck power. Rear speakers are bad in car audio. Think about it. If you listen to music at home, even on a...

    I would not even run the rear speakers. They cause imaging issues and phase cancellation in the bass range. I would just run the front stage, if you can find bass blockers for 60Hz that would work,...

    MM are $209, DB are $149. Its only 60 bucks and the MM's are well worth that difference. They will reach down lower and blend better with the sub. I have another idea for your amp solution.

    The DB drivers are ok but are not as transparent and detailed as the MM. There is more midbass/bass from the MM series as well. Go to onlinecarstereo.com, they have the MM for cheap. I would highly...

    Buy a MM1240 from onlinecarstereo.com for about $150, get a nice sealed box for $50 to $70, and an Alpine MRX M55

    If you don't have a phase switch, swap the positive/negative speaker wires going from the amp to the sub. This accomplishes the same thing as a phase switch.

    The purpose of time alignment is to set up your system so that the sound of each of your drivers hits your ears at the same time. You generally want this because when sound is out of phase it causes...
