If you have subs on it set it at about 80 up to 120 hertz maximum I find the best result is at an 80 hertz limit... A LPF is used so the amplifer will not allow any frequencies above say 80 hertz to pass through your subs... your subs are set up to reproduce the lower end anyway so an 80 hertz setting is a great start...

What is lpf switch


lpf is low pass frequency. You would want to have it turned on if you are running a sub off the amp.

Fujitusi multimedia projector about its lumens and prices


The Fujitsu LPF 4800 has 1500 lumens and was first sold back in 2001. Then 3 years later they stopped selling it. It cost about US$6000 when it first hit the market.
Hope that answers your question.

What do hpf and lpf switchs do


Hello rwalinske, The abbreviations "hpf" and "lpf" stand for High Pass Filter and Low Pass Filter. They do exactly what their names imply. They allow frequencies above or below a specific setting, while blocking or attentunating frequencies below or above the setting. There's also a "band pass filter" which allows frequencies within a specific range below the high setting and above the low setting. Finally there's a "subsonic" filter which blocks inaudible frequencies below the threshold of hearing. The hpf is generally used in speaker component systems to send the high frequencies to the tweeters. The lpf is normally used with subwoofer systems and is set to send frequencies below the setting to the subwoofer. While most amps will amplify a wide range of frequencies, they are more efficient when the range is limited depending on their intended use. For example, a typical 2-channel amp might have a frequency response of 20-20KHz. When used to drive a set of normal speakers, you would not use either the lpf or the hpf, but simply let it send all frequencies to the speakers. But when used to drive a subwoofer, and operated in "bridged" mode, the amp can put all of it's amplifying power into frequencies than can be used by a subwoofer if the lpf switch is turned on. Hope this helps.

Frequencies


Hello again ronnieyannon,

It's probably best to allow the amp that is powering the subs to control the frequencies going to the sub(s). I would not use the lpf on both the head unit and the amp in any case. The control settings are not completely precise and you could end up with a lot of tweaking between the units to get the sound you want. I'd send full range to the amp and with it playing something with a lot of bass, set the 401s to "LP", the crossover slope to near maximum, and then adjust the frequency until it sounded best to me. Starting on page 11 of your manual are the Rockford-Fosgate recommended adjustment procedures, including setting the gains and the filter frequency.

Those numbers for the lpf on your head unit sounds like it allows you to decrease (-24dB), as well as increase (+6dB) the bass at the specific frequencies of 50, 63, 80 and 100Hz. You probably don't want to decrease the bass boost for subs. And the 401s will allow a boost up to 12dB and is variable from 50-250Hz.

Hope this helps.

Overtightened lpf knob


it seems like the POT is going to have to be replaced if it is broken, if the LPF won't adjust when you turn the knob eighter side then it is broken.
