The problem was too long of an attack time for the Xilica DSP. I had set it to 20ms. I should have been 10ms, as it is crossed at a 100Hz

I like to limit everything because you newer know what kind of people are behind the decks and Im not a millionaire, I can't afford 50 L'acoustics subs.

I use what I build myself

Or perhaps simply don’t read what others actually post before weighing in

Good luck with your limiting, Augusts.



Yes, Give up. You do not have any experience on the issue August is facing. It's that  simple! LOL

@smitske The problem was with FaitalPro 18HP1030. Thankfully there was no failure but I heard the voicecoil hitting the backplate. Since then I thought that it was because I hadn limited the peak power on the amp which I did thus lowering also the rms. But after reading the articles here and talking to a few people I now know that it was the attack time and not the peaks. I set the peaks +6db as it should be

Wasn't there any audible distortion before that point? Because it should definately be there.

Which track? Need it for reference Tongue

For subbass testing, try to find "Judgement Dub" by Rog Mogale. It contains strong bass down to 30 Hz, and towards the end even deeper, iirc goes down to around 20 Hz

@Bob4 
It could have been something like this but I dont remember the exact track, but he has alot of stuff that could destroy subs.


Thanks for the Judgement track!

that's not really the issue. And frankly if people don't have a better answer than what others have posted it is better that they contribute NOTHING on that topic. I think you are being called out for persistently acting like a bit of  a know-it-all and dispensing advice to new members which doesn't really stand up to scrutiny - and then has to be corrected by others. You do make interesting posts now and then but often you seem to be afflicted by Dunning-Kruger.
