    I just hooked it up. last night. And the amp works great. I had it hooked up to a friends car. The sub can handle 450 watts the amp is 600 hundrend but it is turned all the way down. My ground is on my bench seat could that be the problem or the audio out puts but they are brand new

    Please post more info. Is it a regular pattern no matter what? Is it always the same or does it change?

    It could be a bad patch cord, your amp. may be turned up too high, could be a faulty amp, bad ground.

Probably that ground, seat bolts are bad 'cause they rust, seat belts are even worse 'cause they have some sort of coating on them to keep them tight but it screws up their grounding characteristics.
Find a good solid metal place to ground to as well.
Also, make sure the head unit is grounded well and if all else fails, try a new patch cord from the head unit to the amp. Process of elimination is needed to solve these problems.

What cause my 15 speaker go off when the beat kick in but the amp still on n make noise out da speaker


Sounds like it's overloading you may have a sub to small for your amp cut all the settings on your amp back to minimum wind them up until sub cuts out then drop them back a bit .

Sub woofer is blowing up and down even when head unit is off


This is an internal power supply failure - most likely a failed capacitor or bad ground trace..
Your amplifier requires repair.
To verify this - remove the RCA cables and if the "heartbeat" is still present - take the amplifier to a local repair shop that specializes in car audio and tell them your symptoms.

1000w amp not sending signal to subs


there is a wire that you must connect behind the radio deck that is blue, this is the remote wire, this goes from the wire to the amp and is what sends the signal that tells the subs to beat/make noise
you will want to run the wire from the amplifier to behind the radios wiring harness. this should fix the problem.
you also mite want to chek the settings on your deck and the volume settings on the amplifire

YEs i have a Kenwood X592.And my subwoofers only beat when the tuner is on.when i place a cd or my jump drive in all it does is play the music.the subs dont work


you have the remote amplifier turn on wire hooked up wrong. The power antenna goes off when the radio does... so it will lose power when you put in a cd or go to aux.
install the blue wire labled AMP. or REM.
Problem solved.

It sounds like the "flex" surrounding your SUB has not been flexed properly. When it comes to SUBS, if you can't fix it in the 1st hr. Its better to replace em.

Try pushing on your SUB repeatedly for about 3-5mins. Working the "flex" on it. If there still is not give in it, time to replace.

My subwoofers have a heart beat to them


Ok.... FIRST COMMON PROBLEM: recheck your ground connection. Make sure that your amps ground wire is securely bolted to the metal body of your car. Not only that- yo uhave to scrape or use sandpapar to make sure that the terminal is touching bare metal.. this is a very common problem. Nobody realizes that the ground connection is just as impoarant as the power connection... Next unplug youir rca cables from the amp. If the heartbeating goes away then mabye you have a rca cable or deck issue. If you can wiggle the rcas at the amp and make it heartbeat more or less.. then perhaps the rca terminals have come unsoldered form the circuit board... in any case without me looking at it personally this is about all i can tell you. CHeck your connections and GOOD LUCK!!!!!
