For all of you FV15HP owners does a red light flash when your amplifier is clipping? The reason I ask is because my old LV12R's would flash red when driven too hard.
I've yet to see the red light flash on my two FV15HP and i've pushed them pretty hard to -8 on my Yamaha RX-A2010. I have had the limiter kicked in though, I only noticed when testing the subs with all speakers disabled, but there was no flashing of the red light
I actually have a question myself, I know this question is fairly subjective as it is based on room dimensions and frequency response. But I would like to know what are the peak SPL you folks getting with your FV15HP? I'm running duals in my room that is roughly 2300 cubic feet. The max volume I've seen on my spl metre is 114 decibels and that is with two ports open on both sub. My FR is pretty flat from 31 hz to 80 with +/- 1 variation. I am in a basement, not sure how much the contributes to loss of SPL.
I forgot to add the room is not completely sealed. There is roughly a 5 x 8 feet opening on the right that leads to a staircase.
