I've read that some people say the Imprint doesn't allow for enough bass when you run it. I'm just throwing that out there. I'm sure it has a lot to do with my sources. It seems that a lot of people on CA forums are bass heads and they probably just complain because it's not rattling their teeth. I guess a lot of people don't understand that subs are supposed to blend with your front stage, not stick out and overpower them.no pictures but for the sake of a blog..
finally received the replacement rca cables. had to reroute the wires again which was really fun. but, all is up and working again as it should.
also received the alpine imprint system so i can get the most sq out of my head unit. apparently i have to install some software on my laptop, plug it into the head unit, set up the included microphone at four different locations and the software makes a couple sq presets i can choose from
Like I said, from the car audio forum I used to frequent, I heard that complaint. I believe most, if not all, of the people on that forum are bassheads. I've also heard about the EQ not being fully accessible without the Imprint kit. And of course, the 9887 requires the more expensive Imprint. I'd attribute that to it's 3 way capabilities.hmm I haven't heard that complaint before. i guess well see once/if I figure this thing out. I don't like how the bass / treble controls aren't there without the imprint. also have to print out the manuals so I can really learn how to tweak it
