Alright just got home from work after only a few hours of sleep
There we go, sorry about the dirty room in the process of redoing everything.
It does look a bit big
but wow it absolutely pounds
With audyssey calibration it only needs to be at about 7oclock(1 dash line) to require 0db of adjustment. So at half way it makes me feel like my walls are gonna fall down and my ears explode. I tried it all the way down to 17hz and I can certainly understand wanting to go lower. However, I am very happy.
Just some safety questions before I really start messing around..
I am using a Dayton Audio RSS390HF-4 15" and a Bash 300w.
Is there any possible way I can damage this sub/driver/amp with those two? Anything I should avoid doing?
Is running sine waves OK? at all frequencies? etc etc.
For an amp the volume dial, are they linear for how much watts they supply?
For say 300w, half of the max on the dial gives it 150w? a quarter 75w?
I ran it once at about 75% and with sine waves from 17-50 and didn't hear anything that sounded bad. But only for a few seconds and then I thought I should make sure I have a decent understanding first.
Thanks everyone for all the replies in this thread which I read several times.
and especially thanks to lilmike for helping a huge newb have an amazing sub.
Edit: Watched a couple movies and listened to some music and feels its fairly boomy. Going to move it under my TV perhaps and use it as a stand of sorts.
