I have been running my SRs for about a month now and cant get them sounding right. I am using a JL 300.4 Bi amped passives removed (They just didnt get loud with them in) I have Hi pass on the tweets at 45K and the mids at 80hz hi pass and that is the best sound I can get below that is blingy I set the gains with a dmm and test tones but am no were near that high on the gain and cant get there. I have tried them on lo pas from 2k to 38k with no improvement. hu is pioneer avic z1 . I have the input on low the slope on 24 hi pass on the hu at 80hz.
1st question. What am I looking for out of the tweets should I understand every word coming from tweets only with talk radio I hear slured s sounds if I turn the gain up from were I have it but it seems like it should be louder. I have them mounted just below the dash almost like if they were in kicks after trying many different spots.
2nd I have a 97 olds 88 and the door panel has a hard piece of plastic 10" x 10" wide with 3 side on it like a square with no back and no top. Have dynomat in behind it there is a "basket" of sorts via the metal in the door but with the panel off you can lok down and see the front and back of the speaker and the plastics is about 1/4" thick. I can hear music bleading throught the door panel is this my problem is there any way to combat this like would poly fill help
I was told by polk not to put them in kicks so what can I do
