You can wire a switch to that wire and then just ground it... that way if you get inspected or anything you can just flip the switch and it functions legally... but you didn't hear that from me.

Hello, I have an 2011 Ram 1500 Sport Crew Cab with the Alpine system... IT sounds ok but is missing the bottom end. Does anyone know of a sub box that will fit the Crew Cab.

I have a friend with a Quad Cab and the area under the rear seat is different. So am I pretty sure one for Quad Cab will not work...

Thanks!

Default Amp Setting Help

I finally fired up my truc today after doing a big install of stuff. Tomorrow I am going to run the Alpine IMPRINT software but I want to make sure my amp is set right first and the manual has me confused.

Alpine PDX-5

Channel 1/2 Front door speakers - Alpine SPR-69C
Channel 3/4 Rear door speakers - Alpine SPR-17C
Sub - JL Audio Stealthbox with 10" sub

Questions:

Channel 1/2 & 3/4 have switch with 3 positions - OFF, LP, and HP. What should they be set at?

Channel 1/2 & 3/4 have a dial for gain and one for crossover. How do I set them?

Sub has a dial for gain and one for LP filter. How do I set it?

Thanks

I am sure some one will answer this that has more knowledge then I do. But from what I do know...

Channel 1/2 & 3/4 I would set them to LP, The crossover is to determine at what frequency the crossover occurs between the mid range and the low. This should cut out the really low frequencies. The gain is relative to the volume adjustment. (Do not over power the speakers). Use it to adjust a balance between the speakers.

Turn on the LP filter for the sub - it will stop the higher frequencies from going to the sub.

Now hopefully some with more knowledge then I will correct my understandings...

What year truck are you putting this system in?


By the way - Sounds like a great system.

I still give you reps for helping out, but it's actually the other way around.

A high-pass filter passes frequencies above a pre-determined frequency and attenuates those below. A low-pass filter passes frequencies below the crossover point and attenuates (blocks) those above.

The setting should be to HP, maybe start around 90Hz and see how your mids handle that first, then slowly turn the number higher until you don't hear any distortion.

The gain settings are a bit trickier. It's best to have an empty parking lot for these settings. Typically you would set them as low as possible. Crank the volume knob to a reasonably loud level and listen for distortion. All still clear? Then start turning the gain knobs up. Once you start to hear nastiness, turn them back down until they clear up again.

Default Thinking about replacing my 8 in sub in my 10 ram quad hemi sport

i was thinking about replacing the stock 8 in alpine sub with a 8 in jl and was just wondering if the stock sub would be able to handle it or would it just be better to do a custom box underneath the rear seat even though there is limited space for mounting bigger subs

I was wondering about that - thanks for clearing it up for me!
