Question about Lightning Audio B1.10.4 Car Subwoofer

2 Answers

Subwoofer problem My husband and his friend installed stereo ,amp,subwoofer last year. Two weeks ago all of the sudden I noticed I wasn't thumpin'. I made sure wires didn't get hit and pushed off (kinda wiggled them too) fuses aren't blown . It worked for a few minutes and then quit again and still not working and no one has time to look at it. Is there something I can actually do fix it?

If it thumped and then stopped working, that rules out a bad fuse. i can only assume that the settings in the radio panel are set and that the cables are properly connected because it played again and then cut off. the cables may be loose not only on the amp, but also behind the radio panel. you should take that also in consideration. also, the next time you try to get your thump going, touch the amp to see if it's really hot. sometimes if the car sits in the sun for a while the amp reaches its maximum temp even before you turn it on. either that or it's close to the maximum temperature and as you're thumping along it reaches the maximum temperature. obviously if it gets to hot it shuts off to prevent fire.

Take a look at the amp is there a light on with the car running and stereo on? if no check the big black ground wire that connects to bare metal somewhere near the amp , also check the big red wire for 12 volts and the small wire for 12 volts let me know -jeff

Possibly the voltage spike/surge destroyed your subs. I am surprised you didn't lose your amp as well.

Subwoofer buldging out problem


When speakers are wired in the wrong way the will do the "pushing out" you're describing. Basically the polarities have been reversed and if kept like this over a period of time will blow the speaker. Best thing to do is to disconnect the power by the negative on the amp and take out the fuse from the power supply. Check the wires running from the amp to the subs, negative to negative and positive to positive. I know it sounds basic but many people do mix it up! I would also check to see what channels the subs have been wired into?

Best way is to have one sub from channel 1 and the other sub from channel 2 for example. Or if its a bridged 4 channel amp, have 1 sub running from channel 1&2, and the second sub running from channel 3&4 still making sure of the polarities. Again this all depending what kind of amp and sub you have.

-----------------------------
For example;
A 4 channel (bridged) 1000W amp. 250W max per channel or 500W per 2 channels! So if you have 2 500W subs, by connecting one to a single channel will decrease subs ability due to the lack of power supplied. However by combining 2 channels you optimize the output!
---------------------------

Once you know all your wiring from your amp to subs are ok/good connections/good wires etc you shouldnt have to "wiggle the wires" to get it to work as this is just a bad connection. Also ensure that no 2 wires are touching. Make sure that the master volume on the amp is turned down. You dont need this to be on loud at all, in fact far from it or you'll risk damaging both the amp and subs!

Hope this helps!

Subwoofer pushing out problem


it sounds like one channel in your amp had shorted and letting dc go to the speaker...a speaker is an electromagnet and requires ac to make it pulse..the amp has a blown channel and would have to be repaired and a factory service center...there is no quick fix..

Powers on but no sound


Check the main amp fuse under the hood, even if it looks good just change it. Often times that light on the amp can come on just from the power amp tunon wire. Try a friends subwoofer box just to make sure the connectors on your box are good, and if that doesn't work then give me some more details....year/make/model of car, what kind of sub, what types of things do you see on the side of the amp....is there a green light as well as a red light?
