Default Is this ok?

If you didn't read my thread about the problem i'm having, i have a 15" RD sonance and a RD 1750. I'm not getting the right amount of output i should be and i'm still trying to figure out what's wrong. I'm wondering, would it be bad if i left the sub in my car with the gain about 1/4-1/2? Is it alright for me to listen to it like that even with little output or could it be messing something up? I'm probably going to get a new battery soon and hope that will help, and if not i'll just save it for a different car i should be getting in a few months.

thanks.

oh here...the other thread... Got some problems

No way to tell. Did you try turning the gain past 3/4 just to see if it got loud or not? There is clearly something wrong with that setup somewhere. Either bad/ partially blown amp or bad/blown sub.

Do you have a DIMM?

Check the final resistance of the sub all wired up and make sure it is correct, If possible try a different amp with that sub and also a different sub with that amp. This should help you to figure out which one is the problem.

Also I know everyone said check your wiring in the other thread but check it again and don't forget your RCA's, swap them out for a set you know is good.

I could be the battery but I would think you would notice other problems if the battery was the issue.

Put your DIMM on the battery and see what it's resting voltage is.
