Do you use a amplifier to power the subs? If so, the amp needs a signal to turn on. This is supplied by the blue/white wire labeled 'system remote' in pioneer radio's.

Subwoofer not working.

Most likely, the "remote" wire to the subwoofer amplifier has come off or is not making good connection.

Why cant i get sound from my subwoofer? All wires and fuses r good but still no dound??

Check all of your connections and your receiver's surround
modes. Also, you may want to consult your troubleshooting
guide in your receiver's and subwoofers owner's manual.

Other than that, even though the receiver has been tested,
there might be a problem with the subwoofer output of the
receiver. You might also try different interconnects between
the sub and receiver -that could be the problem.

Has it worked in the past with this receiver and subwoofers?
Try it with just one subwoofer and see what happens. If you
still get no sound, then it might just be in your best interest
to get a new, higher quality receiver. That's what I did when
I ran out of help to get the subwoofer problem solved, and it
worked after replacing the receiver

I hooked up a Sony deck and new Kenwood 12' subwoofers and amp that came together in a box set in my 95 Jeep Grand Cherokee and when I play the radio the stock car speakers play but the subwoofers are...

their should be a blue and blue white wire on the Sony radio. cut the blue wire and then connect the car side to the blue white wire and tape off the blue wire that is on the radio side.
the blue wire only turns on when the radio is activated. the blue white wire is activated when the radio is turned on.
please rate my solution.

Subwoofer turns on and is hooked up, but no sound.

The signal don't seems to be present to the sub input.
Try change the wire betwen the audio system and the subwoofer.

I just picked up a 12" type r in a box with a alpine m 350 how do I know what kind of type R I have without taking it out of the box?? and how do i hook it up to this amp??

Not to insult you in any way but u need to know how to wire into car's electrical system at the battery then to a fuse then to the amp and then output the signal from the deck to the amp.. finally to the subwoofer. you need to hook up 12V constant battery power , then remote from the deck ,ground wire from amp to chasis for power.. then wire to sub.

Could a ground stop your woofer from working?

First check the speaker wire from the amp to the sub, see if it's connected right. Second check the rca cables that goes from your amp to the back of the deck. I f both wires are still connected fine try to replace the rca cables. If it still doesn't work the rear out put at the back of your deck, where the rca's are connected are bad. FYI deck is bad.

No sub when listening to a cd

you're using the wrong remote output wire. You have it hooked to the power ANTenna wire (blue) which turns off when not using the tuner. You need to use the REM OUT wire (blue w/ white stripe).
