Question about Nitro BMW-481 Car Audio Amplifier
SOURCE: What is the best adjustment
First you need to determine what kind of subwoofer it is and by that i mean, is it a dual voice coil subwoofer or a single voice coil sub woofer.
Dual voice coil(DVC)
Depending on how many Ohms each voice coil is you will have the amplifier drive a specific load (4OHM stereo (75 RMS x 2) 150RMS total power / 2OHM stereo(100RMS x 2) 200RMS total power) Connect each voice coils separatley to each speaker output of the amplifier for this configaration. Always making sure that the + & - of each voice coil go to the coresponding location of the speaker outputs of your amplifier.
If your sub woofer is a single 4OHM voice coil then your cables should be connected to the coresponding location on your amplifier which states "BRIDGED" It is marked clearly on the speaker outputs of your amplfier.
If it is a 2OHM then do not connect it to the amplifier. The specific amplifier is not stable at 2OHMS bridged and will most likely get damaged if you try to operate it at that OHM load.
On the side of the amplifier where the adjustments are there is a switch that indicates X-OVER. (LPF/HPF/FULL) Make sure to set it to LPF (Low Pass Filter). (not doing so can damage the subwoofer)
On the left hand side of the X-OVER there is the adjustment for the LPF (30-250) the best setting would be at the same frequency that your speakers stop
If your speakers have a frequency response of 60Hz to 20KHz then setting your LPF to roughly 70 to 80 will be ideal. The rule is that where one speaker drivers frequency ends, the other must continue in order to complete the full range of audible frequencies.
if you have any more questions feel free to ask.
