Test Tones

On this page are test tones used everyday for testing audio system. EVERYDAY!!! This separates the “men from the boys!” this is where we cut thru all the BS on knowing where yout head unit or DSP or amplifier is clipping at. Or WHAT is clipping (could NOT be the thing you think is clipping…like your amplifier!! Maybe..MAYBE NOT)

 

REMEMBER – That audio is AC volts. So it’s easy to measure. Using a Voltmeter, DVM, O’Scope, DD1+, RTA, etc.

These are all tools of the trade – and the test tones needed to do that testing

 

PINK NOISE ICON

Here is 10 minutes of Pink Noise to download.  Simply right click the Pink Noise Icon and then save the file. It will be downloaded to your computer.  Use this for tuning any bike!!  Use an RTA (preferably the Audio Control Apple App!! – all of $5 to purchase the RTA portion!!) and VIOLA!!!!   Like the Pros do!  Go to the Test Equipment page to find the tools WE use.

1KHZ ICON


Here is a 1kHz Sinewave.  About 1 minute long.  Perfect to see where your headunit  or amplifier clips.  Use a simple volt meter, DVM  or O’Scope to see what is happening.  Always look at our Test Equipment page as you will see what the Pros use to test with (you may be surprised!!!)

100HZ ICON


Here is a 100Hz Sinewave.  About 1 minute long.  Perfect to see where your headunit  or amplifier clips, for BASS!.  Use a simple volt meter, DVM  or O’Scope to see what is happening.  Always look at our Test Equipment page as you will see what the Pros use to test with (you may be surprised!!!)

PHASE TEST ICON


Here is a Positive and Negative “Pulses” for testing Phase.  This is SUPER important as HD has been known to reverse polarity on their speaker wiring in the fairing!   This is the TEST for that.  You’ll need a Polarity Tester app for your phone.  Which are FREE on both the Apple and Google Store. Always look at our Test Equipment page as you will see what the Pros use to test with (you may be surprised!!!)
