You don't have a phono ground, use the AM ground

Ok, I'll try it when I get a chance. Been really busy with school lately. Only 16 days of actual school left, then I will be a junior once the next school year starts!! Can't wait.

Re: 7.6 cu.ft Maelstrom- X 18" build

I noticed a slight distortion today, and nothing was clipping, and the sub wasn't bottoming out. When I walked by the AntiMode, I noticed that the "Bypass" and "Lift 35" lights were lighting up. Has anyone else had this happen to them when the volume is up pretty loud? I'm assuming that those lights mean that the AntiMode is clipping.

Just wanted to throw that out there.

The sub sounds much better with the foam removed from the box I can't believe the difference that it made.

My apologies for a triple post.

Dan, would it hurt anything if I just cut the Shield wire right at the number one prong, and soldered another wire onto there that will go to the AM ground? Or do I need to take the complete "Shield" wire out from the rest of the wires?

Does anyone know? I would really like to get it fixed, but don't want to short things out if I leave the Shield wire in with the rest of the red/white and black wires.

Thanks . Breaking Benjamin has quite a few songs that are good, whether it be for lyrics or a wide range of bass things. "Breakdown" by them has some pretty unique bass in it also.

FINALLY!! I read the whole topic so I have learned a lot about subwoofers now

I'm planning on building a pair of subwoofers with a Mal-X 18 and two 18" PR's so I'll be following this from now on
