    Default Some One Please Tell Me The Settings For My AMP!!

    So here is my setup.
    ALPINE 9857
    Polk Momo 4 channel amp
    Polk Momo 6x9 Rears
    Polk MOmo 6.5 Fronts

    Thing is i have NO idea how to tune my amp. THere are tons of settings in the back. IF anyone has this setup please tell me what to do. I have no idea where to start and there are all sorts of things like slope, crossover and what not.

    Oh yeah and eventually there will be two subs in the back but those come later.

    Please help thanks!!!

    its hard to tell you what they should be, all of us do it by ear. My recommendation is take it to a local audio shop and ask them to tune it for you

    A good place to start is to leave the low pass and high pass filters off since youre not running any subs and play the speakers full range.

    Then you should set the gains. The easiest way is to turn both gains all the way down and turn the HU volume up to about 25 on your Alpine. Then start turning the front gain up slowly til you hear the speakers start distorting. Then back the gain back down til the distortion stops. Now adjust the rear gain til it blends well with the front.

    Thats all the setting you should do with the amp for now. From here adjust using the head unit's EQ's. There is no set way to do it, just tinker with it and eventually youll get it dialed in.
