tuning the deck!

Hey guys, so I finally replaced the old mach head unit and got the pioneer av-x2500bt. So far I really like the change, but I'm having a hard time getting the tune right... Does anyone have this unit and have any tips?

Have you went through all of your setting and set that stuff to your liking? What's wrong with the tune of your radio?

It doesn't sound right, and I have no idea what I'm doing with these so I can't get it to sound right, im almost tempted to say it sounded better and cleaner with the factory

I'm pretty sure the reason is the same as what happened to my car, after replacing the Mach head unit you no longer use the rear amps which causes your door speakers to not work as well as your rear bottom speakers in a vert or the rear deck speakers in a coupe

I dont know anything about that deck, or even the Mach system, but if you have all the speakers hooked up correctly and in phase, then the next step is properly adjust the crossovers so that you are getting the correct range to the correct speakers.
