I have an amp hooked up in my car.when I tried to connect the two woofers up to amp, the stereo cut off and the deck said that's all it will do is read protect.Wat do I do?

This is a circuit protection to stop you frying your audio! Could be a short circuit or wired wrong......remove the fault and it should reset! First remove the 2 sub woofers since that was when this happened and test the deck!

If the lights on your sub box aren't coming on it's either your ground of power wire came loose or the transformer blew. As for the subs, make sure all the connections are good, especially on your RCA wires. If your amp is getting power, then check your speaker connections. Also, make sure to turn the gain know up. The gain knob is located next to the RCA input on the amp. Let me know if this helps.

I have a pair of pioneer ts A-6987 connected through an amplifier and pioneer cd player..i noticed today that the left speaker's cone woofer stopped working whereas the its producing voice but if very low...

double check the ratings on the speakers and amp. speakers that size don't usually require an amp. compare the wattage and resistance numbers, if you haven't fried an amp, you may have blown a speaker. another possibility is a short in the channel. check wiring connections.

Hi i have problems with my subwoofer it wont play it's an alpine 12'' type e with alpine mrp m350 amp. there is light on the amp. how do I find out my subwoofer is blown or what else can be...

ok, your amp is in protect mode. either the speaker wires are crossed and shorting out, your woofer's vioce coils are melted and the speaker is blown or the amp is dead.

to determine if the speakers voice coils are melted, and thus the speaker being blown is the reason for the "protect" light, simply push in the cone of the woofer in gently with your hand. the woofer should move a little more than an inch, without any resistance, before bottoming out. if there feels to be any resistance, like a rubbing or scratching, before the woofer bottoms out, then your voice coils are fried, and you need a new woofer.

Can a kicker cvr be fixed if it is blown if so how

Speaker lesson here. For space and time, I'll not get into certain nomenclature. Working from top to bottom, you have the cone, rubber surround, basket, spider, voic coil former, voice coil, and the magnet. The binding posts are connected to the tensil leads which connect to the spider and the voice coil. As the woofer is positively + and negatively - charged, it creates a magnetic field which moves the woofer up and down. There is a small gap between the magnet and the voice coil and former that's called a magnetic gap. This gap is what helps the speaker to move up and down, and creates the Xmax. The Xmax of the woofer is the maximum linear excursion the woofer can travel without causing permanent damage. With a blown speaker, normally the voice coil and voice coil former have been pushed out of the correct magnetic gap, usually around the top of the magnet. That means that the only way to fix it is to take the woofer completely apart. My suggestion is to just go and spend the money. A blown speaker is a sign of abuse, and voids warranties from the majority of companies out there to include Kicker.

I wired my alpine sws-1243d and in a matter of 3 minutes it burned up now the speaker wont even turn on so dont know if its blown or what but im getting no sound whatsoever from the woofer i wired positive...

The polarity of speaker connections verses the connection to the amp should have nothing to do with situation. The sound reiforcement would be weaker in one direction is all.

Make sure the amp was not rated for more power than your speakers. If you overdrove the speakers you may have fried the voice coils.

Have 2 blown square hifonics 12inch speakers. Was playing goos and then just stopped. Took to radio shop and they said I have 2 blown sub-woofers. How can i get them fixed.

They probably will have to be reconed. Slight chance the flex leads have broken in which they MIGHT be repairable. If this occurred during playing very loud, you probably burned up the voice coils.

Have them reconed and then use an amplifier that maxes out at MUCH less power to drive them. Also fuse the speakers to protect them.

Do you know if my woofer is blown?

well if you hear a rattle sound its probably already blown...and the amp could be drawing too much power if the radio shuts off...make sure all your wiring is correct. also if your car is off and you turn it up it will most likely shut off cause the battery cant handle it. but as for the sub i think its blown. good luck

Bass in Car Gone, i don't know why!!!

Does the amplifier power up? If so, then check the voltage at the outputs...sounds like the outputs fried. Also, check the RCA cable to make sure it is getting a signal to the amplifier.
