Thanks for all the replies guys. I switched the positive and negative...and the sub worked both ways. I think i identified which way was better but im not sure. The real problem im having is my component speakers are creating a lot of bass so its hard to distinguish whats from the sub and isnt from the sub. Anyway...the new questions are:
-Can I get only sub output so i can do more objective tests?
-Any other ideas on how to fix the phase problem besides switching the polarity?
-What are the little dials on the amp for (the bass one is obvious, but theres a gain and something else)?
haha! No Kidding. I'm still trying to get my EQs to blend!You call that a problem!? Do you know how much work people put in to get their substage to blend like that?
