i bi-amped these about a month ago so i could cut tone down the very bright highs, which worked great.
right now im running the tweeter off the built in crossover and full range on the amp, and the woofers full range (need to change that) the problem is, im just not getting the bass i want from them. they seem to be really lacking in the low end.
im using marilyn manson - coma white (acoustic) for my testing on these, just because it has a nice strong bass line through it all. the vocals and the upper range sound excellent, but the low end of the acoustic guitar just isnt there.
im running these of an xtant a4004 4x50wrms @4 ohm and an alpine cda-9815. the speakers are in some open air speaker boxes right now. (used my old speaker boxes as a temp, and these new speakers wont fit, so theyre half in and half out) would real sealed boxes help with this? ive been putting off making them for awhile now.
which this actually brings me to my third question/concern. i seem to be clipping a bit with these speakers, and i dont think im any where near their limits. the first thing i did was drop the HU volume from 27 to 25 (35max i think), and up the gains, and this helped alot. im currently not even going past 20 just so they dont clip. is it ok if i drop it to say 23 and upped the gains even more? or keep going even lower/upping the gains until i find a spot where they dont clip,and theyre as loud as i want? im currently sitting at about the 11 o clock position for the woofers, and 8 0 lock for the tweeters.
