Re: what eq settings do i need

Hello ed4037, If you are blowing fuses this means that you are drawing too much current check your impedance value on your amplifier it should be 8 ohms to match the subwoofer's 8 ohms of impedance. In addition make sure that you have the proper value fuses. In other words you should not be tuning the amp not to blow fuses, because you should be able to go to full amplitude on your amp without blowing anything. As I alluded to this sounds like an impedance mismatch problem. I hope this helps, Thank you, Shuttle83

Jl 1000\1 v2 and 13 w7

it depends on how you wired your 13 w7 did you wire the dual voice coils up or down?? the w7 comes with a book and it has the 1000/1 settings you need and then there is a guide that comes with your 1000/1 v2 and on page 14 it tells you how to set the gain accordingly to your ohm load for perfect sounds with little to no gain overlap (you can set the gain louder if you don't want maximum sq and are not worried about clipping cause a 1000/1 shouldn't blow a 13 w7 from overpowering only from clipping (and since the w7 are practically bullet proof clipping takes a long time)

Blown fuse

What size fuse are you using?

Have you checked the speaker to determine if it's damaged?

Do the speaker and amp produce clean sound up to the point where the fuse blows?

2 12w6v2's with a 1000/1

I dont know how you blew both subs with a 1000/1. the subs have an rms of about 400w. according to jl,the sweet spot for them is about 500-600watts. are you sure that you had the jumpers wired correctly and the amp at 2ohms?

Setting low pass and bass eq

Hello, i have a hifonics brutus also, in the manual it states to set the eq at half way, so that there is no clipping or at least to prevent clipping , the eq will make the bass punchier, if you do go pass half way, i would recommend to readjust your gain settings, also check your head unit settings and make sure everything is flat, bass, mid bass etc. example i had my eq past half but i had my gain at mid way, it was hitting hard, then i tried turning the eq all the way down and the turning up the gain and the bass was smoother so it depends where you set it, and what settings you have on your head unit tone control (bass, treble etc)

Amp settings

It's going to be mainly "what sounds best", but I'll give you a start.
  • Set the gain to 50%.
  • Set the LP filter to 12db at about 80Hz.
  • Set the infrasonic filter to ON and at about 20Hz.
  • Set the Bass EQ to ON, Q to 0.7, center freq to 40Hz, and boost to about 5dB.
The other settings are going to be based on how the system is connected to the head unit.
