The purpose and benefit of the D’Amore Engineering / SMD Destortion Detector PLUS.
The purpose of this tool is to enable the user to set the gain of an audio amplifier to match the source unit’s output level, quickly and accurately. Proper gain overlap setting of a system ensures that no matter how high the volume of the headunit is, the user cannot excessively overdrive the system and cause damage to the amplifier or speakers.
Proper gain overlap setting also ensures the end user is getting everything possible out of his/her system while minimizing unwanted noise. The DD-1+ can also be useful for detecting distortion in the audio signal caused by poorly designed or malfunctioning audio equipment.
The purpose and benefit of the D’Amore Engineering / SMD Crossover Calibrator.
Most modern car audio amplifiers have a built in crossover on the side. Usually, it will start at 30hz and have a huge gap, all the way up to (sometimes) 500hz. The purpose of this tool is to enable the installer to set the crossover frequency of an electronic crossover to the desired frequency, accurately and quickly. Enter “Competition Mode” and easily match gains on any 4-channel amplifier or even multiple bass amplifiers. This is VERY important when using subwoofers that share a common chamber, especially if you have 2 (or more) amplifiers on a dual voice coil driver.
