So sadly my 4 channel amp refused to power up anymore. RIP
It was an Eclipse PA5422 with a modest 85 watts, so I just installed another eclipse, this time an XA4000
There's two things that are annoying me.
1)At very low volumes, there is a hiss that wasn't there before. Kind of like a tape player. Could this be because the amplifier is amplifying more than the old one was? It happens with the Ipod, USB, CD, etc... So I know it's not the source.
and 2 and the reason for this post... it has a bass boost from 32 to 64 hz up to 8dbs. Now considering that in the head unit I have the crossover for the speakers (alpine spx's) to 160 and a 6db octave slope, I suppose this would have no significance, but I'm not completely sure, can anybody correct me/inform me?
Last questions, will this amp be good enough to handle a pair of SR6500's? I really don't want to bi amp and lose my rear channels (i know i know)
