      Did you ever retest based upon setting the baseline as I described earlier? If so what were your results? Trying to do it by ear is virtually impossible as there is quite a lot of overlap in the EQ...

      Raoul, colors are going to change but pinouts wonít. As long as both channels are consistent, polarity in this configuration in a car sub is not going to matter as there is no phase alignment. I...

      There are crimped tap connectors that will allow you to preserve the factory ends if you canít find a factory mate.

      DIY Subwoofer - 2018 XC60

      When you try again, take a reading with nothing playing to see what your ambient baseline is first. Then youíll have a better sense where +40 dB will be.

      Rahul, thanks for uploading the graphs. There is an issue with your test environment in that you either have too much background noise or your levels are not high enough. You need to have at least...

      I am afraid you are going to need to perform some tests as I did starting with my post here. Your equalizer/tone controls are different from mine. You need to understand the frequency response...

      Congrats on completing your project! I'm glad you found my thread helpful. I'd be interested in what your final tone/equalizer settings will be since I am sure Volvo has changed things since 2011....

      Raul, it looks like you made great progress! I feel your frustration as I hit some similar bumps as well. You did a great job on the vents. I dod use the stock gaskets and would go with the bigger...

      The fronts are full range as long as the Dolby Processing is not engaged which introduces the Center Speaker into the picture with its perspective processing.

      It's likely that the JL Fix has a lower input impedance than the minDSP which is why it works. Mark sue you order the MOST Y adapter as the HU may not work w/o talking to its amp. There is a black...

      You are correct that we now know what the problem is; however, your solution to cut wires or change the harness was not. You canít keep a load on just some channels and expect the other channels to...

      Volvo V60 - Audio Install Log

      Since you have the external speakers you used in #2 test at hand you can use them for the ďloadĒ to tap off for the DSP signal. I would expect that unless something is defective in the MiniDSP...

      Unfortunately, "garbage" is not a technical description that I can decipher, which is why I suggested sending a single tone (80Hz, 400Hz, IKHz, etc) from the Head Unit. By varying the volume you can...

      There are internal sensitivity settings in the DSP using DIP switches. I would first start with those, after making sure you have not switched any input polarity or channels in the wiring. Itís easy...

      The answer is likely that you are not accounting for pin C3:16 which I believe provides bootstrap power to turn-on the high current line that enters via the C1. Generally, you should only be removing...

      The PSP vent is 2Ē ID. The reason for the flares is to reduce turbulence as well.

      Yes, their surrounds should not touch as this will reduce the excursion. The reason turbulence is important to minimize is that it reduces the output. Obviously, in this design the vent is the only...
    29. DIY Subwoofer Project - A Premium Journey to the Low End

      In examining the model for the smaller vent, you need to also look at the vent turbulence (velocity) which should be less than 20m/sec. I would expect it to go up with a smaller vent. I donít...
