Default Sub not as loud?

Randomly, the sub seems to not be as loud as my front stage today.

I can turn the lc-1 all the way up and it's kinda better...but used to be I didn't need to do that.

What could be going on? Nothing changed. Voltage always 14v

Have you checked ground and power wire for bad ground or even burns or bad fuse?

I don't run fuses any more but I will check for burns and things like that.

I don't see why I would need fuses though. I literally never go under 14v and I know how to properly wire things up.

You're either getting used to it or there might be a signal voltage problem from whatever your source is. Could be loose RCAs or something.

How long does it generally take to get used to the bass? 0% chance the RCA's came loose - they are matching and all very very tight connectors.

check for pinched connections. This happened with my RCAs and it limited my output.

Is it possible that one of the speaker leads that are connected to the speaker terminals inside the enclosure came out and when you hit a bump it loses connection? A friend of mine would lose bass completely when he hit bumps and it turned out the spring was weak in the terminal and the wires came out.

Some days my system seems louder then others. I know if I eat a Vicodin it makes my system sound not as loud. Makes me have like plugged ears so I don't take those for head aches no more because I need my loud boom booms
