WHAT SIZE AND TYPE BOX DO I USE FOR ONE PIONEER TS-W304C SUBWOOFER


You have a lot of choices for this. First, unless you are tuning the sub to a specific frequency you have options. You didn't specify the size of sub so it's difficult to say specifically, but if it's a 12 inch sub, you need about 1.5 to 2 cubic feet. Of course the performance of the sub depends on the music you listen to. If you listen to rock, pop, classical, or country, I recommend a sealed box. A sealed box gives you better control over your sub. The air acts as a cusion and decreases the return time of the cone to rest position. This gives you tighter bass. If you listen to rap or hip hop, I recommend a ported enclosure. This type of enclosure allows for more cone excursion, thus allowing the sub to recreate lower frequencies. Hope this helps.

Popping noise on my 12" type r subs


The subs are making that sound when the bottom out + when they reach full excursion be careful if it keeps happening eventually your subs will fail because you will end up damaging the subs voice coil.

Burnt voice coil??


Sounds to me like your amp is clipping. You can tell by watching the power lights on the amp when your system is cutting out. If so, the most common problem with this, is a bad ground, otherwise, the problem is internal and the amp will need to be repaired or replaced. If your speakers were burnt at all, or defective, they would simply not work anymore. Hope this helps, good luck.

If i put the TS-swx310 sub in a bigger box would it get help the sound.......i have a 12'' regular sized box and the speaker is going in a car now???


It is amazing the difference box construction can have on the overall sound of a system. Size is only one factor. Using a larger sealed box may make the sub hit lower, but not necessarily louder. Because the TS-swx310 is a shallow mount woofer, it is designed to run in small enclosure. Putting it in a much larger box could potentially cause damage to the woofer over time. If you want more bass my advice is to use a normal woofer in a box built to spec for it. Generally a ported box will provide more output, and sealed hits tighter. It all depends on the type of music you listen to.
Hope this helps

Two 10" Rockford Fosgate P1 subwoofers stopped making sound


Sounds like you've blown them.

When you were playing back to the friend, were you playing louder than usual?

Was the old box ported, and the new one sealed? The lack of ventilation may have caused the blow...

Sub cutting out


Check the 12v wire running from the battery to the amplifier. Also the sony explode is a garbage subwoofer compared to the Alpine.. sony (they say 1200w max but its more like 100w to power the thing) Amp could be going. Is the amplifier hot when running. If there is a burnt smell comming from the amp, its the amplifier

I had my subs installed a month ago and a few days ago the subs are working,everythings connected but not working and my subs aren't blown out because i don't have my music that loud so whats the problem?


what model kenwood speakers do you have? what head unit do you have? do you know how they hooked up the rca cables to the back of the deck? if this deck has got 3 pre outs you may have lost the sub pre-out. are you amp lights coming on? if you are still having problems you can take a 9v drill battery or bigger and touch the wires from the speaker to the battery, make sure positive to positive and neg. to neg. the speakers should pop if they are ok, that should re-assure you on the speakers. let me know and ill help where i can. good luck
