    Default Finally installed my setup. Clicking sound from speakers? bass tuning? Suggestions?

    I have a feeling its just an issue of settings on the amp hopefully. But I was wondering how to tune my subs. I have two 10" kickers in the back powered by a 500W Alpine amp. Bass comes from them, but I feel like the bass should be louder than it is. I have my amps settings (gain, LP, and EQ) All on the middle setting, and Gain on 3/4. I feel like people's cars ive been in with only one 10" made louder bass than my two 10"'s

    And I noticed one 'tiny' problem today though. When the radio was on, I heard a clicking sound when music was playing coming from the speakers. When I paused the cd, the clicking sound still clicked. I didn't have long to play with it, but I hope its nothing serious.

    Other than the clicking problem and bass tuning, thats it! Im glad its all finished and hope I can fix these two quirks soon.

    Any suggestions?

    I would suggest checking your RCA cable. Sounds like your'e picking up some sort interference, due to it being cheaply made or it is being crushed somewhere. RCA cables are one thing that should not be skimped on as far as wiring goes. It may cost you 100 instead of 20 bucks or whatever but will be worth it in the long run.

    x2 could be a bad ground somewhere ... possibly engine noise.

    Here is a link that might help you.
