ur deck only has
Three Sets of 4-Volt RCA Preouts (Front, Rear, and Sub) just like mine


what i meant though was at least 4v outputs. but i've never seen a deck/amp combination that takes 16v

I didn’t imply that I did have 16 volt pre-outs; I am aware of the specs of my equipment, after all it’* in my signature. You’d think I would know what I have, but thanks for pointing it out anyway.


Eclipse has for a long time had some of the highest pre-outs available. The owner of the audio shop I frequent has an eclipse with 16volt outputs. Any amp should accept the signal, I think the theory behind it is the AMP doesn’t have to work as hard? or it can amplify even more? Not sure, but here is an Eclipse with 16v

http://www.canze.org.nz/reviews/inde...roduct_ID=1035

My only point in bringing all this up is 1994SE was looking for a very economical solution (a $3 switch) to suggest that he upgrade his HU so he has on/off control, phase control, and have 4volt outputs, etc. just seems excessive, so I sarcastically suggested a 16volt HU instead...

I am just joking around with ya, hope you don't take me seriously..

alpine mrv-f10008.5 Volt Input Capability


Rockford 1001bd - Voltage -150mV - 6 volts


notice no eclipse amps say they accept the ENORMOUS 16v input capability


i don't think you could physically hear any difference in sound quality of 4-6v preouts


ok but enough thread stealing....goodtimes

yes the eclispe pre out are 16 volts. most amps i have seen will accept as high as 8 but i have seen none that go to 16. as far as the swicth for the subs yes i would place it on the remote turn on wire if your head unit does not do so. i can turn my sub on and off as well as adjust the signal through my headunit. that is the best why if possible
