Older Phase Technology subwoofer help
I am currently using a 15 inch Phase Technology Octave 1.0 sub. I have a few questions.
I have noticed that the amp runs extremely hot. I was watching a movie the other night and it was so hot i couldn't touch it with out getting burned. And the wall behind it was very warm as well. I have the sub volume set at the 8 oclock position and i had the sub output set to + 4.5. It seems that if i go lower that it shuts off during a long quiet passage of a movie. I have lowered it to + 3.0 and set it to 9 oclock and see if that helps. It also stays on the warmer side when it is just in standby mode and not in use, is this normal? I had a velodyne vx-10 and it was cool to the touch when not being used. Also the specs i found were 240 watts rms and frequency response 18Hz - 100Hz.
