Re: Audio install -Urgent help needed!

what wiring are you using.
How is the enclosure constructed

In your case nothing need to be changed , just some tuning in amp as well as in head unit.
and some modification in the enclosure.

Wiring has been done recenlty and its a branded one but not sure of the name!.the enclosure came with the subwooffer Kindly type KICKER VES 12 SUBWOOFER IN google images and you can see.The details I would not find anywhere.Found out the RMS of the sub is just 150.Otherwise suggest a powerful subwoofer to match the Amplifier.

Yeah its power is 125 rms , but that must give a good boom i hope.
just try tuning the amp .
keep everything flat in the head unit.
and then tune the amp .
after the max satisfaction you get , try fiddling in the head unit.

Thanks Mate! but the Amplifier RMS is 600 Rms at 1 ohm,475 at 2 and 300 at 4 ohms I guess,I think its too little power the Sub has to give that Thump

Hello buddy welcome to the forum!


With Focal mono amp and kicker sub the thump should be real good! As Ilango said try tuning the amp , since you are in Chennai there are many ICE installers around.

And BTW is that HU having 3 RCA outputs and is that enclosure a ported one?

hey kartikramu just had some guys have a look at your prob and these were the conclusion they came up with.
1) the sub is very low powered for that amp. and that amp coul fry the sub. so please try to change.
2)make sure not to play the music with the boot open. as the car itself acts as an enclosure for the sub. hence you might have not felt the punch.
3) if you think of changing the sub then change to a JBL GTO 1514 which is perfect. please put this sub in a sealed MDF bass fx box which can be custom made.

any other queries would love to help cause have sound system in my car worth 1.5lakhs approx
