I just installed my deck, amp and sub in my car, everything works well except for the subwoofer won't make any noise.
All wires are correct per the diagram from the install manual and the amp is powered and lit.
I have tried all 3 rca jacks (rear output) with and without the amp on several different speakers and none are producing sound.
I have gone through the sound settings and it tells me that the sub is on.
Could all 3 channels be blown?

The speaker level input option is designed for receivers that don't have digital output for the sub, used this way when you set to digital the speaker outputs only get the higher range outputs so won't reproduce much bass. To get the sub to work in digital mode you need to use the digital output (single RCA) from the amp to the sub
You should have two (or more) RCA plugs on the back of the deck that will act as pre-amp outputs for subwoofer and speakers.
Failing that, your wiring harness should have come with a wiring diagram that will let you know which is the subwoofer output.
Failint THAT, the deck itself should have a wiring diagram on the bottom or side telling your which wire is which.
And if that fails, Your deck may not have a subwoofer output. Just attach your sub to the amp pre-out like everyone else.
The "Front output" from the Pioneer deck would connect to the "Main In" on the Clarion EQ. I'm assuming that your Clarion EQ can only deal with one input, and will send the adjusted (equalized) signal out both of the outputs. The "Front output" from the Clarion EQ should go to the "Front Input" on the 4 channel amp. The "Rear output" from the Clarion EQ should go to the "Rear Input" on the 4 channel amp. The "Sub output" from the Pioneer deck would connect to the Left/Right Input on the Epicenter. The Left/Right Output on the Epicenter would need a Y-splitter for each side, so that you could connect each amp separately. One suggestion would be to use one sub amp for both subs.
try reconnecting your rca's from the deck to the amp when finished wire one speaker positive to positive on left channel and negative to negative on right channel then connect the 1st subwoofer. if all power and sound is fine and working turn off power to amp and connect negative terminal of 1st sub to positive on 2nd sub and positive from first sub to negative on second crossing the wires runs the speakers in series another way to try is parralel the speakers wiring by connecting positive left channel output of amp to positive on 1st sub same with the negative then splice positive to positive on second sub and same with negative.
No. I would recomend running front and rear to the crossover. Use the sub out on the deck so you have total control of subwoofer output at your fingertips. Your deck should have at LEAST an 80hz crossover built in. Any further fine tuning can be done at the sub amp.
1 Use MULTI-CONTROL to select SW CONTROL. 2 Press MULTI-CONTROL to display the setting mode. # Press BACK to return to the previous display. 3 Press MULTI-CONTROL to select the segment you wish to set. Press MULTI-CONTROL repeatedly to switch the segment in the following order: REAR SP (rear speaker setting)—PREOUT (RCA output setting) 4 Use MULTI-CONTROL to select the desired setting. Turn to change the setting. When REAR SP (rear speaker setting) is selected. REAR SP:SUB W(subwoofer)—REAR SP:FULL (full-range speaker) When PREOUT (RCA output setting) is selected. PREOUT:SUB W (subwoofer)—PREOUT:REAR (full-range speaker) # When no subwoofer is connected to the rear output, select REAR SP:FULL.
first check that the subwoofer function on the actual head unit is turned up,second check that the gain on the amp is at bout half way then check that it is on a lp (low pass setting)
then check that the boost on the amp is turned up.
please leave feedback.
You need an active subwoofer input in your amplifier.Which amplifier you are using? Only latest pioneer amplifiers has active sub input and sub output which can be connected to subwoofer.If you dont have active input then you will have to connect it the way you did in old player.
