Question about Volfenhag Car Audio & Video
I'm really stumped here. I was under the influence that the zx-4712dvx subs would work best with a Volfenhag amp. So I went ahead and got a pair of subs and the zx-8400. Please bear in mind that I don't have much experience with car audio systems. I went by what I researched and hoped for the best. Here's the config: H2 Hummer, Stock Bose 6 cd changer which I didn't want to replace, no auxilary outs so they spliced off of the speakers and decent sized "enclosed" box with several round vent holes.
After the installation, 3 techs spents close to an hour each trying to tune the system but without any luck to get a decent sound of the system. The sound comes out extremely muffled and besides that, the bass is controlled from the remote knob (not the radio where you would turn the volume up and the bass would turn up as well!!!!!). Now that seems extremely odd to me, but they insisted that this was the only way for this type of a system to work - a german thing they proposed - which is complete B.S. if you ask me.
Now could someone PLEASE help me out here. I'm starting to assume that they have no clue as to what they're doing although they were highly recommended!

Well, you should tell them they have no idea what they are doing, you should have them re do it with a seperate amp that is DESIGNED for a bass and then it will work fine :)

First of what you have should work great together....now the next thing is: does the bose system carry powered speakers if so the spliced speaker wires should be put onto a converter(a small box with RCA outputs) then you should make sure the levels in the little box is not set to full but 75%, if set to full you can be looking at distortion. Then they should set the amps to full range and see what you get.........oh and by the way you don't have to use that little controller(with the telephone wire) for the bass. You can control the bass with the frequency controllers on the amp or your head unit. And it's not a german thing trust me they come with nearly all amps now. These guys are full of ****. If you don't get the punch you want they should try bridging the amp for more of a punchy sound. Oh and you can use that decent sized box with the vent holes......that should work fine.
