Must be simple, its a problem that I am having with installing friends system, everything is working fine everything gets power including amp, reciever, and well no major problems. I have preformed the most toughest troubleshoots. Including rewiring the speaker wires to the front individuals and the rear individuals. I have also rewired the ground in a few spots including sanding down the spot. I have made sure it has been taking a good 12v supply, and well the ground is deffinitly good. This is the sinario, I start up the reciever everything turns on even the amp it gets power, I turn the radio on all the speakers work, just it feels like all the speakers are running on a very low treb. This might be true as that I have reversed the true polarity, as in positive and negative terminals on the speakers alone. Can someone maybe post a few troubleshoots to actually fined out why the speakers are just different the music that comes out of the speakers doesn't come out loud and clear. It feels like it is having not enought power I am running a Infinity refrence amp series 1210a, I will be powering it to about 2 subs in a few days just have to figure out this problem first. Do you guys think that could be the problem that the speakers polarity is switched from positive to negative and vice versa. thanxs for everything. If you guys need anymore info. just PM me or just post away.
