Hifonics are outstanding amps.
I would need a complete description of your system ( or your system to be) including High quality pictures of all amp connections and controls followed by a chat or preferably a phone call.
Let me know, and if you ever want to get rid of that amp..........

The recommended settings for a mofet car amp 50.4 , theres a few knobs not sure what they should be turned to


The gain knob is used to control how much the volume (output) of the amp increases with each increase in volume on the deck (installed in the dash). This is used to match speakers running of your deck. Other knobs are probably for a crossover (labelled in Hz). This controls what frequencies are passed to the speakers connected to the amp. A Highpass (HPF) crossover passes all frequencies above what the knob is set for. A Lowpass (LPF) pass all frequencies below what the knob is set for. A HPF is typically used when the amp is powering component or full range speakers to keep the ultra low frequencies (anything below 90Hz) from going to theses speakers. A LPF is used when the amp is connected to a sub. Subs dont handle higher frequencies very well.

Volfenhag amp adjustments


Firstly, you will want to set all options to a low pass, so the high frequencies are filtered away from the subs, avoiding damaging the voice coil. Start with the Gain of the amp about 3/4 of the way up, and all other knobs, such as the bass knob to the lowest setting. From there, test your subs for soujnd, and then change the gain and amount of bass for the sound you desire, since each person is different. I have my gain about 1/2 way up and the bass about 1/4 of the way up. If you have a crossover knob, set it to the highest frequency available, since the low pass will filter all the high frequencies out anyway.

How do I turn my amp up...what nobs do I turn?


The purpose of the gain is to match the signal volts RMS coming from the source (CD player, etc.) to the input of the amp for correct power matching and to prevent clipping (damage by over powering).

Here is a guide that will help you set the gain correctly http://www.box.net/shared/uchv4dbk88

You'll need a multi-meter (AC voltmeter, $15 from Radio$hack), Microsoft Excel and a way to burn an audio CD from an MP3 (test tone included).

If you don't have Excel, You can downlaod OpenOffice by Java (SunMicro Systems) for free to read spweadsheets (and you thought spreadsheets were for business).

Set the LPF to just below the highest range of the frequency response of the subs. Meaning if the frequency response of the sub is 20-200Hz, set the LPF to about 180Hz

OR

set the LPF to where the other speakers start off. example, if the speakers start at 150Hz, set the LPF to about 160Hz. This overlap (or crossover - where the term comes from) is the ideal setting.

Set the subsonic (infrasonic) filter to about the same as the lowest setting in the range of the frequency repsonse of the subs. Meaning about 20Hz if that's the lowest in the range (20 -200Hz as above, if applicable).

Don't set the Bass Boost above +2dB (if applicable).

Set the phase to 0 (if applicable).

I have an xploid 760 same amp wit ha 800 watt sub. eb=verything should work fin. but the same prob when i turn up the valume the overcurrent kicks on


use a bigger ground wire for amp and protect mode will stop clipping and shutting amp off also make sure power wire and ground wires aren't the same size ground bigger .............if this doesn't help change settings on amp to lower power
easiest way to set amp is (turn the knobs on amp all down turn up your system to the level you listen to normally and then set the amp knobs for bass turn knob slow to set properly but i think the ground needs to be bigger and maybe moved to a new location
hope this helped

Wired bass control knob


Not all controls are the same. Manufacturers use various schemes to control the level of the audio. If you use a control that's wired improperly, you risk damaging your amp.

Car amp


and you adjusted the gain knobs? sometimes they're recessed in small holes and you have to get a tiny screwdriver to turn them up. If the amp has a crossover, that may be set incorrectly also...

May i suggest removing the equilizer unless you can adjust the settings for each amp seperatly. The amps themselves will allow you to add bass boost and treble boost. I think the problem your having is trying to run to much bass through your system causing it to distort badly.
