Vendetta 4 line converter feedback

I just finished ripping out $3000 worth of equipment to install the vendetta. I did this because my ice-link will be here tomorrow and I also wanted a cleaner look to the dask. The Vendetta line converter is sooo easy to install and sounds terrific. No matter what I did with my Eclipse system I could not get the alternator whine out of the system. With the V4 I simply installed the ground wire where the speakers are grounded, used the diagram from some fellow Fanatics and voila! perfect sound. I turned the gains on the V4 up all the way which enabled me to reduce the gains on my amp about 30%. The sound is really crisp and only required about 20 minutes of tuning to get the balance/fade/ sub level perfect. I am running the Eclipse 3532 and 3232 (the 2 channel gets it's input from the primary amp). Again, awesome product that delivers for about $50. I can't wait to hear the ice-link with this system. Sorry, I was sweating too much for pics, but, if anyone needs help with this install send me a PM.

Thats weird that you have the ven4 gains all the way up. A lot of us have used this converter and gotten cliping in the amp if the gains are naywhere over a 1/4 turn on the ven 4. I actually just ordered an lc6 so i can get rid of the ven4 and the noise and balance problems it comes with.

I am telling you, its black magic. Some people have great success, and others not.

I installed the VEN4 and was very unhappy with it. I had the gains on the VEN4 turned way, way down (made sure they were equal using an ohm meter) to the point were I got ride of the clipping, and most of the hissing noise, but had to have the amp turned way up and still lost a lot of volume. I tried this with a couple of older Rockfords and a new Alpine. Finally I tore the factory head unit out and put in an Eclipse, every thing worked well.

Of course, I just added a second amp, and now seem to have ground gremlins. It never ends.
