So everything is together now and playing as it should.
One thing I ran into when I did the install of the JL CL-SSI is that if it is not getting full-range singal from the headunit through the channels you picked to tap into, the CleanSweep will not calibrate. Let me take a step back and explain how the SSI works. The SSI has 3 inputs and is capable of 2 or 3 way converting. Input A is your higher frequencies, Input B is your midbass or bandpass, and Input C is your sub stage. When I first had everything hooked up I had it as follows:
C- Rear "Subwoofers"
I could not get this format to calibrate. I called JL and talked to them about it and they said that without knowing what frequencies each channel is, its hard to really tell me what channels I actually needed to be hooked up to. Now with the Sony 12 speaker system you also have the front and rear center channels. I took a second to read up and see what frequencies they covered which is, 350-3500hz. So from there I changed my setup to:
B-Front and Rear Center Channels
This format also failed to calibrate. At this point I was out of ideas. I then tried:
B- Front and Rear Center Channels
C- Rear "Subwoofers"
This finally worked. The only thing that I can guess is that the frequency range of the tweeters was too small to cover the what the center channel didn't and that's why it was failing to calibrate. With using the front doors for input A I covered a wide range of frequencies since they are used for both vocals and some midbass, but mainly vocals.
After cleaning up the static in the system and getting the CleanSweep to calibrate correctly with the SSI, it has made a huge difference. Before I had the static from the CleanSweep cleared up I had it calibrated, but I had to have the bass and treble on the headunit turned completely down, which is not how its suppose to be calibrated. Now everything is set up correctly, the bass and treble are both set at 0 and now I will actually be able to use the bass adjustment to help with the tuning of my sub. I plan on going to see my buddy in Indy on Sunday to have all my amps tuned so no clipping occurs.
