Gt5 12 inch 275 watts how many watts of amp best?


Depends on what output your stereo is. If you underrate the speakers (speaker watts is less than stereo output), the unit will sound louder for a while, then you end up blowing your speakers with the excess distortion. If you overrate the speakers (speaker watts is higher than stereo output) the speaker will not operate correctly and the distortion can damage it also. Its best to get a close match. Slightly higher is better. It is important you know actual wattage output not PMPO ( Peak music power output) A lot of stereos are rated at PMPO. The higher number sounds great but in reality, the figure is the MAX output and by then the sound is distorting badly. Distortion ruins more speakers than anything else...

Fosgate 1500 amp settings


low pass of course set the crossover around 80Hz. Then turn the bass down to around 35% on headunit and the volume all the way up on your head unit just below distortion. slowly turn the amp gain up until you start to hear distortion, then turn it back down until it's completely gone. Then, lower the gain just a little more to make sure you keep out the distortion on all songs. From here you should be good. If the gain is still to high. The adjust to your taste. Just don't move the bass up on the headunit or the gain past your distortion point.

I have brought these speakers, when i turn the headunit up above about 3 quaters of the way they distort, they are running off a 4 channel 4ohm amp with 400watt rms but they do it with the gain on the amp...


If you run the power amp at a very low setting it makes the amp subject to noise and distortion. You want around a 60% setting.

Speakers also need to have proper loading, that is in a cabinet or enclosure that is kind of matched to them. If the amp is rated at a true 400 Watts RMS then the speakers should be at least 800 Watts as they "cheat" on those SPEAKER ratings and MANY A SPEAKER IS BLOWN AS A RESULT.

I have a fiesta zetec 52 plate with standard ford radio cd player and over the last few weeks I keep losing my FM signal it is there for seconds and just fades to fuzz can get MW/LW but quite distorted...


thats sounds really weird never come across that problem in my 3 years. only thing i can suggest is taking it out and checking all the connections, if there okay might be a faulty headunit which you can pick up from ebay quite cheap.

if you do take out headunit then please make sure you have the code for the stereo, or dont unplug the iso lead :)

Need anyhelp then just let me

Sub woofer volume adjustment


The gain dial is not a volume control. The gain dial is used to compensate the output level of your car radio head unit. all car stereo units output are not alike. If you set this gain level too high, it will cause major distortion (clipping) to the audio output of you speakers when cranked up. This excessive distortion WILL eventually, or even quickly damage or blow your speakers.

I personally blown speakers this way no not properly setting this. (lesson learned, I guess :| )

Speaker Distortion


I would definitely say yes to the new HU, however at the same, the issue could be the actual wiring from the deck to the speakers. If you've got a cassette player in there I'm assuming the vehicle is a bit older. Over time the copper in the wiring has a tendency to corrode if exposed to the weather. Either way replacing the player is a win-win situation since you'd be stepping into the CD era (lol), but if it doesn't make a difference I would be looking towards the wiring. Outside of that the only possible wild card would be you bought faulty speakers, the odds of that being very low since it's coming from both. Hope this helps.
