Default Help, i dont have the power.

Hello,

I just built a Sonosub with a Dayton 12 in driver and Bash 300 W amp. I hooked it up today but something is wrong. It doesnt seem to be getting much power even with the volume on the amp maxed out. I can feel the sub moving. Does anyone know what I may have done wrong? Wrong enclosure size maybe?

Thanks

Jeff

Jeff,

You're gonna have to be a bit more specific. Which Dayton 12"? Dual voice-coil? Have you tested the driver outside the subwoofer enclosure? Have you tested the amp with another driver?

Hi guys,

I posted to soon. I found the problem. My reciever (sherwood newcastle 771) has a bad sub preout. I knew I should have gone with the NAD. Thanks.

Jeff

The same happened to me recently,

Mission 73AS sub upgrade (if possible)

If you have old cassete deck with monitor function you can cheaply amplify the signal as I did.

regards,
