Sorry I'm not going to touch this one with a bargepole. I will suggest you go to a car hifi installer and get him to have a look at what a mess you've made and see if it can be fixed.

Bass feed bacl help


The ground wire inside the bass is loose, not connect, or not connected correctly. Make sure it goes to the CASINGS of all the kobs, the switches, if any, the negative side of the plug socket, and under the bridge. All of these surfaces should be grounded together, the connection under the bridge is necessary to keep from looping the ground with your hands.

Hi, i have hooked up my CS-AT1100 sub bit the power is not coming through. I have put it at the back on my Toyota Camry (1993) and pulled the wire through. The battery power is sourced from the supply to...


Here are the steps you need to take:

• Connect the ground wire to the vehicle first(Chassis) (clean dirt and paint to bare metal). • Connect the remote on (blue wire). This wire will be on the back of your stereo • Connect the RCA cables • Connect the remote level controller with the supplied lead. • Connect the 12 volt (red wire) to the positive battery terminal. (Make sure to use a power wire that has an in-line fuse. • Check all connections.
If you need more help let me know

Got error 10 and dont know what to do


from REalMacoi your problem seems to be related with the AdaptIQ failing to do an active equalisation. HAve you connected the AdaptIq sense headphones on the AUX (left and right coz it will still fail if only one cable is connected) Also make sure tha the sense headphone cable is in the correct color orientation and none is connected to the black jack just below the red one. Try this procedure and if the system still shows error 10 do the following in sequence...

1. Turn off the media center via the"ALL OFF" button in the tray (no DVD disc inside the tray)
2. Turn off the bass module by the power switch underneath the bass module (certain versions may not apply)
3. Unplug the power adaptor of the media center and remove the power adaptor connection from the wall socket.
4. Unplug the bass module (if this has not yet been done
5. Disconnect all speaker wires (satellite speakers I mean)
6. Disconnet the data cable linking the bass module and the media center
7. Allow 10seconds to pass
After 10seconds then connect the following again in this sequence

1. Connect the media center and the bass module data cable first
2. Connect the satellite speaker cables.
3. Connect the media center adaptor (DO NOT TURN ON YET!)
4. Lastly connect the bass module power cable (DO NOT TURN ON YET!)

Once verything is connected, press power "ON" button o nthe RF remote and the media center should turn on. Only the you should switch the bass module power "ON" so that a fresh handshake is achieved.

This ERROR 10 occurs when either the ADAPTIQ process is interrrupted, the data calbe link between the bass module and the media center is loose or when the power connection is interrupted.

If all still fails, then there is a problem with the DSP board of the bass module and would require servicing.

I do hope I was able to help you

Broken bass unit


(Please read the whole thing before opening anything)
Loose connections inside either the receiver or the subwoofer. Open the subwoofer case (the screen should pop off, if there is no screen there is usually some hidden screws somewhere) and see if there are any wires that have been separated. The problem with subwoofers (more common in car audio) is that they will vibrate so much that when you have something meant to have a lot of bass without the subwoofer and then you add the subwoofer to it, it's overpowering it which causes it to vibrate harder; seperating the cord that attaches the fabric of the speaker itself to the metal harness.
You can do one of 2 things:
1) Souder the wires back together using a heat sink.
2) Get allagator clips, cut them down pretty short and just extend the length of the wires a little bit giving it more bouncing room. Caution with this because if you dont cover the clips and they touch the metal frame, you will have no sound. Electric tape them once they're on.
If nothing is seperated, check the input jacks from the speaker box frame to the speaker itself. Loose connections are common for the crimp on kind.
Also a good idea: if you really (I mean really) want bass and you have no neighbors within a 1/4 mile radius of your house, have a friend who is getting rid of his car woofers to hook you up an AC outlet from the power source, and then use the red and white cables going into the amp to come from your receiver. I've seen this and it's great when watching a movie or playing games. Surrounding people hate it. (Wonder why?)

Doesnt sound good


my suggestion is try using electrical tape and make sure you wires are not making connection with other wires or any kind of contact with the chasis. That can sometimes mess with your sound quality and can cause your speakers to act up.
