Yes, I would solder it back to its original place and it should work like normal

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.

I have a legacy 4000 watt 15" subwoofer and it has two connections on the sub but only one in the box and the ones on the sub are not labeled + or - so I don't know how to install

Hook it up one way and turn it up a bit, then hook it up the other. As long as you don't crank the volume this won't hurt it.

The louder of the two is probably correct.

The Sub should move Outward with each bass hit, if it is backwards it will "****" in with each bass hit.

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.

the memory wire isnt connected properly, you have the memory and the power on the same switch. the memory needs to be connected to a hot wire that is on 24/7 the memory wire is usually always the yellow wire. the red wire is the one that just gets turned on and of as you key your vehcile. hope this helps

No bass in the sub

you could have a bad remote wire running to the amp or a bad remote circuit in your head unit, try connecting a small wire to the remote and jumper it to the power wire on the amp if this turns on the bass simply wire in a toggle switch and turn it off when you turn the car off so you dont drain the battery

I have this speaker and it dont work

You dont want to do any repair to that sub... take it to a trusted alpine dealer and see if it qualifies for warranty repair... unless you get a high end sub like orion hcca's or others of that quality you cannot repair them and should never attempt to... any repair you do to them will make them distort unless you have the proper tools and know-how to do it

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.
