ive plugged up my amp to my stock HU through an LOC and i have my two subs connected to the amp, and through this set up, im hearing the actual music as well as the bass coming through my subs. what's causing this? is it fixable? how? and is it bad?

Re: weird sub issue

You didnt set the filter on the amp. LP= only low frequencies go through, HP= only high frequencies go through, Straight through.. well we know what that is. Set your amp to LP, and your filter to about 160-180hz.

Re: weird sub issue

its dark out so im gonna check that out tmrw. that sounds right though, i think i do have that set wrong. also, one more question, on the LOC, if it's adjustable, what exactly are you doing when you adjust that, and what is the 'proper' way to set that? im guessing it adjusts the voltage of the signal, but again, how would you go about 'properly' setting it?

Re: weird sub issue

I have no idea.. I've never used a LOC. You may want to put "LOC issue" or something similar in the thread title so somebody can come in here and answer your question.

Which LOC are you using? You only need to change the factory settings in rare conditions to match the expected input voltage of the downstream amp.
