    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.

Light blinking and sub just sounds like a heart beat


Swap the wires of your Sub with another channel and if the same sounds comes out, you blew your sub. If a different sound, you blew a channel on your Amp

A2200 htc wont bump my subs and the fans never turn off


check your wiring's, there are two positive lines, one is directly connected to the batteries positive terminal and the remote positive is connected to the ignition's positive, and make sure it is properly grounded.

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.

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 JL subs just dont beat like the ONES IVE HAD before as well as the ones my friends have had


sounds like they have your sub amp in mono but they put the speakers in series which totally cancels the benefit of running your amp in mono. you will probably be happier if you just hook the left speaker to left plus and minus and the right to right plus and minus. Cuz even though subs aren't directional they do pass some higher frequencies that are and that dilutes the stereo effect.

Car amp's stopped working. Putting out a heart beat sound through subs but no bass.


could be low current ,disconnect all power including ground for 20min N.B most amps will seem to be shorted at output but this is normal due to damping ratio.
