Default question about bass fading in and out

Hello again, Thanks for the help before. I have a new question. I have noticed that my bass seems to fade once and a while. I just noticed this recently. It seems that some days, the bass hits hard. Then on other days
it just doesn't seem to. Almost like it's a volume thing. I was wondering if you have any ideas if you think it may be the hu(kenwood ddx714) or the amp(hd 900-5). I have never heard of either of these units having a bass fading in or out problem. Have searched on the i-net and found no complaints with either. The other day I tried to use a computer program to RTA the sound
levels to bring it more flat. I also noticed that there is a peak around 10k htz with my focal 165 k2p upgraded version, that I can't get around. And I turned off the mid-high selector and I think I may put that back. The program didn't seem as good as when I used to use an actuall RTA machine. I want to fine tune the flatline, but first things first, I need to figure out the
bass fluctuation. Or, maybe it's just me. I am actually thinking of taking out the head unit again and making sure all the wires are correctly installed. The reason for this, is that I originally had someone install the deck for me and it was hooked to the factory speakers and amp. So, I installed the new stuff and just hooked up the wiring harness to have the pre amp outs. I physically unhooked the factory speakers and replaced them, but the wires are still going to the factory harness. Im wondering if I should disconnect that because I am pretty sure the factory amp is still turning on and off with the imputs still routed to the that factory amp. This could be an issue with the HU sending signal to the factory amp and the RCA's to the aftermarket stuff I added. Sorry to be long and drawn out, but I got a lot on my mind about this system, haha.

Sorry for the delay, If the stock system was bose I would think that your head unit is somehow getting faded out threw the stock system. I would either way run new speaker wires, the head unit... is that powering the speakers or if a amp is I would check the crossovers and the filter to see what it is set on for your new speakers it should be set on full or high pass set at somewhere around 80 or 60

I ended up going with Alpine head unit/processor/dvd changer, Audison for amps, and Focal for speakers. Bottom line, think it out and take your time!

I will give you props for your knowledge when it comes to car stereo; you seem to know your stuff, but I think your definition of " do not rush" when it comes to installation must be way different than mine.

LOL well I try my best to take my time. One install actually took me 3 full days to install aftermarket stuff and integrate it into the factory head unit. But I take my time and make sure everything is done right. Thanks for the complements.

No problem.

Not sure if you understood what I was saying: make sure your final install doesn't look like it was thrown in at the last second; you have to make all aspects of your installs look their best. Don't spend 3 days wiring a harness and 20 minutes installing an amp. Your installs (again, IMO - others may disagree) are missing their final cleanliness. Hide the wires on amp installs, etc... and you will be golden. Better yet, try hiding all components for that stealth look; you won't be disappointed. People will judge your installs by what they can see - even what they can't see or maybe know what is behind some panel.

*Looking at the links you posted in your thread to the caraudio.com forum, you take a pretty hard lick for installs. Again, I give you props for showing your installs, (we all started off in the same boat) but if you don't clean them up a little, people are going to continue to lash out at you in your threads. Just a little constructive critisism. Keep up the installs

I will keep that in mind, If I had more time I would of made it nicer as I even said in the description of the install. Fiberglass takes time to cure and sand and paint. I had three days some installs only one. How wiring is done is important just as much as other things. The customer liked having the amp where it was installed. Plus cost goes up for fiberglass. Install looks great! though especially for being in your own car and being able to take your time I would say that you easily took over 4 days to do that.

Another install was done the direct link here " 'O8 CR-V Overhaul - Day One - Car Audio Forum - CarAudio.com " It was a 2008 Honda CRV came out great. I will not say much more as the customer "Adam" said most of it.

Directly from him

Today was the first day of my '08 CR-V's metamorphosis. With the help of forum member bigaudiofanati2 (Matt) - who I can't recommend highly enough whether you just need questions answered, want to hire for a build or to work along with and learn something at the same time while having things installed well (e.g. good solder skills, and methodical). We started with my car:

FROM:
'08 CRV LX, with Pioneer DEH-7000BT I previously installed (together with bluetooth, external XM module, but everything else stock (speakers, no amps, no sub - blah blah sound with lots of road noise).

TO (so far):
Alpine PDX-5 5-channel amp; Polk MM6501 6.5" component system for the front; Infinity 6032si 6.5" for the rears. Also, 3-bulk packs of Dynamat Extreme, Kicker 09PK4 4AWG amp wiring kit and Monster MPC I306 6-channel RCA cable. The sub-choice remains pending (but will be powered by the PDX-5) - as I'm still considering either sub-box location or some way of integrating a shallow-mount sub or the like in the truck (without buying a $$$ JL Stealthbox; I'd rather be a bit more unique/custom than that).

Well, without further adieu, here are some pics from Day One. The dynamating was all my work, so don't hold any faux pas there against Matt, lol. I'll leave it to him to reply and detail the considerations he has taken so far on the build.
