Question about Vibe Car Audio & Video

3 Answers

My port plug (for the EVO10 active sub+amp enclosure) doesnt seem to fit as well as it did two weeks ago (ive only had it for that long). It just ends up being pushed out because of the air pressure, even if i try and put it right in it still comes out after about 30-40 mins of use. Any reasons why this could be?

    it seems to me more of a physical problem
    i.e. two weeks ago the plug fitted nice inside the port, whereas now it seems to sit in the port very loosely and wont go in much farther

    i will get someone to take a look at the voltage/fuses etc, but i dont think thats where the problem lies, might consider getting a new portplug and seeing if it still fits badly...

  • jakeytb Jul 06, 2010

    what i really want to know is:
    -why isnt the plug fitting into the port nice and tight, when it did 2 weeks ago
    -do i have to buy a new plug
    -if buying a plug wont help, what will?

Hi! Is there in any way you can put screws on the speaker frame? This will certainly help.

    Alright. Please try this. Before putting on the plug make a loop wire. This will make the wire hard to loose for it will have a play and wont pull the wire easily.

Plug pushed out due to any kind of air pressure this is not possible.But yes in some rare cases it has noticed that plug gets thrown out due to high voltage issues.In the unit there is a fuse and the power supply.If the fuse is weak or if the unit is receiving less power then required then due to internal circuit overheat the connections will get cut and due to this port plug gets pushed out.But this is seen in very rare cases.Just get the units fuse and voltages checked out to confirm the fault.A local electronic tech will be helpful to check the connections.
Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

    If it seems to sit in the port very loosely and wont go in much farther then check out the port as well as plug for any blockages.In other case replace the plug if it looks cracked or worn out.Get it checked properly before replacing any part.
    Thank for the query.

12 inch sub(JBL) in box with a 500 watt pioneer amp, sounds good with some types of base. would you cut a port hole in speaker box?


riverray1969 it would help if I knew the exact model number of that JBL sub you are referring to. With that info I can provide exact specs.


Basically, you need to build/modify an sub enclosure that is suited for the sub, the music you mainly play, and vehicle tuning. Generally, sealed enclosures will provide tighter bass response and get decently loud. Some would argue that it will give you greater sound quality. A ported enclosure will give you a louder more booming sound. That depends also on where the port is tuned (ex. 32 hz, 36 hz, etc ). You need to make sure that the enclosure meets the sub's airspace requirement as well. A customized well made enclosure is just as important as the sub you put in it.

Hi i have apioneer ts-w2501d4 sub and i am running it with a vibe a7 slick 1300 watt amp and doesnt sound well ,.what is the problem?is it the amp>?.and can you tell me as well which enclosure box is...


ported enclosures are for spl only using these will be louder on certain frequencies but can sometimes not play others at all. i say if you want it loud go ported if you want clarity go with sealed. and you have to look at the manual of the sub it self. each sub has a desired volume of air that it wants for the best sound. my subs like to have around 1 cubic foot of air per sub. that might be a good spot to start. but me personally it sounds like you might have your gains set high so your amp is making a static sound which will change the pitch of the sound. and also i prefer a sealed box but thats your choice.

I got to 12 they are about 400 watts each what would be a good amp to put on it to lift the subs


Hello jeremymikjha,

Basically you want to match the subs in impedance and power.

With 4 ohm subs wired in parallel, the final load will be 2 ohms. Depending on how hard you want them to hit, a pair of 400 watt RMS subs will need an amp that delivers 600-1,000 watts into a 2 ohm load.

The enclosure you use will also make a big difference. A sealed enclosure will need more power. A ported enclosure will be louder with less power.

The Hifonics shown here would be a good choice for a sealed enclosure. It's rated for 1,100 watts RMS into a 2 ohm load.

http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_17598_Hifonics+BXi+1610D.html

The Eclipse XA1200 outputs 600 watts RMS into a 2 ohm load. It would power the subs very well in a ported box.

http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_17598_Hifonics+BXi+1610D.html

Somewhat less expensive but good quality would be one of the Alpine MRP series. The MRP-M500 is only $179.99 at SonicElectronix. It delivers 500 watts. It's big brother is the MRP-M1000 with twice the power. Be sure your subs are securely mounted or this amp will literally "lift the subs".

Hope this helps.

Rockford sub squeaks


Hello markwasicki,

You did not specify what type of enclosure the subs are in or if they share the same airspace. But the sound you describe sounds suspiciously like the enclosure is at fault and not the sub itself.

Remove and reverse the subs in the box and test for the noise again. If the noise is still produced on the same side of the box, it's the enclosure. If the noise follows the sub, then you have a problem with that sub.

If the box is making the noise, and it's a ported box, you probably have "port noise". If it's a sealed enclosure, you could have either an air leak or flexing noise. In either case, repair the enclosure or put the subs in a new one. If the sub itself is making the noise, there probably isn't much you can do. Most likely some part of the voice coil assembly is touching where it should not.

Hope this helps.

Have kenwood mono amp 4,2,1 ohm capabilitie. What is the best sub to run. The amp is 1600 watts, howmany ohms and 1 or 2 voice coils.


Hello pelikant75,

The best answer depends on your budget for the sub(s) and exactly what kind of sound you are looking to get. Your amps RMS output at 4 ohms is 200 watts and at 2 ohms, it's 400 watts. I could not find that it was 1 ohm stable.

If you are looking for the absolute best bang for your buck, I would highly recommend a pair of entry level MTX 10" subs, model 4501-04, currently priced by Crutchfield at $49.99. And if you buy a pair, they throw in a free Bass Slammer BS210S sealed enclosure. The MTX's power range is 112.5 to 225 watts each, right in there with your amps output. 2 of them in parallel give you a 2 ohm load, just right for your amps best power. And they sound great. You simply can't find a better deal for $100 bucks!

If you want a little better SQ, a pair of Rockford-Fosgate P1S410's should be considered. Again, going to Crutchfield, they currently have this one "BOGO" (buy one get one) for $99.99. You will have to provide your own box, though, no free one with these.

Finally, if you want the best SQ, and your budget allows, consider a set of Alpine SWR-1022D's for $179.99 each. These have dual 2 ohm voice coils, allowing you to series the coils and parallel the subs, resulting in a 2 ohm load to you amp just like the MTX's and RF's recommended above. You will probably want a somewhat larger enclosure for the Alpines as well as a fatter wallet. Your amp is right at the lower end for powering them, so they probably will not be as loud. But they will sound good.

One thing we haven't discussed is the box. The enclosure is just as important, perhaps even more important than the sub(s). More accurate bass is generally produced from a sealed enclosure. A ported enclosure will be louder, but at the expense of sound quality. And whether it's sealed or ported, the enclosure needs to have enough internal volume for the particular sub you are planning to use. A sealed box in the range of .75 to 1 cu/ft will be OK for any of the recommended subs. Add about 15-20% more volume for a ported box and keep in mind that the port needs to be specifically sized for the frequency for which it is tuned.

Hope this helps.

Bass not Very deep


250 watts rms seems a little low for a 12 inch woofer, a 500 or higher will likely fix your problem. Specific model numbers and the type of enclosure you have will allow a more specific answer.

Kickers dont beat like they should


try to check and clean the wiring as clean as possible to avoid messing up on your connection. Check the polarity of you subs to yuor amp if you have it connected on the outher way around it would not give you a good result. check the polarity this will solve your problem. Over powering your sub will fry it easily try to tune it a 10" sub wont give you a 15" performance..

Subs dont beat like they should


you've spent alot of money on **** by the sounds of it!!. you should only ever run multiple subs the same brand, power and resistance you can just connect any old subs to a system you need to wire them depending on the load that the amp needs to see. first thing is to try the amp/s on a individual sub to check your amps still work once done check the subs 1 by 1.

Amps


The phase is used to match the phase of the sub, highs amps. If you don't know how to determine if there's a phasing problem between the two amps and you can hear no difference, leave it set to 0.

Many people use the subsonic to prevent over driving speakers in a ported enclosure. If you're using a sealed enclosure, leave it set to the lowest frequency. If you have a ported enclosure, set it just below the resonant frequency of the port in your enclosure.
