right, 6x9's distorting at high vol.

my sony xplod 6x9 speakers rated at 200w distort when at high volumes, why?- the distortion changes when i change my bass/treble

so on my stereo for the bass and treble it has, - 12 to + 12 to change it(goin up and down 1 by 1), so can you tell me what to set it on to get none or least distortion. oh as well the stereo is rated at 4x40 watts, if that helps.

Re: right, 6x9's distorting at high vol.

The distortion is caused by your headunit clipping out the signal. Adjusting the bass and treble will indeed make a difference as you are altering the signal. Bass notes generally get distorted more, so setting the bass to the minimum will solve at louder volumes.

But to solely solve the problem, the 6x9s should run off an amp. Your headunit is underpowered for your speakers - which is causing your problem.

I'd say thats quite a high probability

Seriously tho, try not to keep turning up speakers really loud when they distort as it really dont do them any good.

Re: right, 6x9's distorting at high vol.

Yeah, I'd agree, turn the bass down, or turn the volume down. Failing that, amp the 6*9's with a decent amp and set your gains up properly, possibly getting them scoped.

Although, ditching them would be the better idea.
