Do you have a strong alternator to charge your battery? even though you have a capacitor and a strong battery you will also need to make sure you have a strong alternator to handle the charging needs when that capacitor puts out its juice that its been storing. Make sure your alternator isnt on it way out by bringing it to somewhere like autozone or advanced auto parts....they usually will do a free test and it only takes 10 minutes.

if it isnt that try a higher farad capacitor.....that could also be the problem.
check all your ground connections as well as look for corrosion on the battery terminals.
might as well check the battery fluid too. (be careful not to touch battery acid as it hurts like hell and is very flammable) you wont have to check your acid levels if its a maintance free battery. if the acid is low inside the battery you can add bottled water to it and run the car for awhile to change the water into acid.

I have 2 12" Pioneer TS-W3003D4 subs and I wanted to know can a Pioneer GM-D8500M run them?


pretty much any amplifier can run any sub, so the question is not weather or not the amp can run them, it is how well the amp can run them. Those Pioneer subs are dual VC models and are rated at 600 watts RMS. You have two, so that would be about 1200 watts of RMS power you will need in order to power the subs correctly and to optimum efficiency. The amplifier model you have is rated at 600 watts RMS for a single channel at the lowest stable impendence. That power coming from the amp will be split two ways between the subs and divide the power to each speaker. So each speaker will be receiving 300 watts of power. So in short yes, your amp will power those subs, but they will only be operating at half their rated power. Your amp will be running at maximum power so it might get a little warm after a while. make sure you wire it correctly and keep the amp well ventilated if you decide to push it that hard. if you need help on how to wire them search the web for wiring options by typing into Google " how to wire two dual voice coil subs into amp". There you will find plenty of illustrations to help you decide.

Hi, you can split the preamp RCAs with Ys available everywhere. The amp input impedance shouldn't cause much load on the head unit. Let us know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Whats the best kind of amp to use with two of these in a box


Walmart sells a 760 watt 2 ch amp.....It works well with these type of subs. Or any amp rated @ 150 watts per channel RMS. Start with the low pass filter on and with it hooked up and playing raise amp level until distortion can be heard through subs...then back off a bit...Your level is now set.

My Pioneer DEH-4900IB plays music but there is no power to the unit. I can't turn it on or off, change volume, see a display but it still plays music. How can it do that?


I just had the same problem with my Pioneer radio. I pulled the radio fuses from my car's fuse box. This essentially forced the radio to turn off. A couple days later I placed the fuses back in and the radio functioned normally. Hopefully this will work for you.

Ok, without knowing if you have the 2 or 4 Ohm Dual Voice Coil (DVC) version of the subwoofer, I'm going to assume you have the dual 4 Ohm version. The reason why is because, assuming you have the Pioneer GM-5300T amp, that amp does not support an 8 Ohm load. If you wire it in parallel, that would give you a 2 Ohm load. Parallel will be solid red connected to red/white dot, then to amp +, and solid black to black/white dot to amp -. Without knowing more specifics on the amp, that should fix the problem. Let me know what you get.

Ive bought 2 of them . after 1 week they both sound distorted. only running a pioneer 760 amp to itthere is nothing wrong with the wiring


If they were OK at first, you maybe put too much power into them and fried the voice coil. If so, it is fatal and they would need to be re-coned.

I have a Pioneer GM-H100 amp and I can not figure out the whole 3 prong thing is there a special wiring for it i have seen mixed comments of this same problem on different website can you please help me...


I have a gm-h100 amp. The three prong plug is for a remote turn on. Mine has two wires one of which goes to the radio where it gets a power on sigonal (12 volts when the radio is on). the other wire goes to the an accesory fuse where it gets 12 volts when the key is turned on. the amp needs both of these before it will run

If the light on the amp is dimming when the bass hits it's usually a power related problem. It sounds to be that you don't have enough power going to the amp to drive the sub. It should stop if you reduce the volume at which you are playing the music. Yes?
How to solve this is to, increase the size of your power cables, add a power capacitor if needed & change the car battery to a higher capacity one.
The other option a little more professional, would be to fit a split charge system & a secondary battery to the boot/trunk of your car just to run your stereo system, with a power capacitor too. This will provide all the juice that your system requires so you can bang your head as long as you want :P
