Question about Boston Acoustics Competitor 1200 Car Subwoofer

Subwoofer shut down

I have a 2006 Dodge Charger with a Boston Acoustic 6-speaker system. When I turn the volume up on a song with a fair amount of bass, the rear speakers shut down. The front 4 speakers work fine. I have taken it to the Dealer but they claim they cannot replicate the problem and basically ignore me. Is there some sort of resistor that is causing the rear speakers to shut down?

The amplifier probably has a built in protection circuit to keep from over driving the subwoofers. This will prevent the dealer from replacing woofers........most likely it's designed to be overly safe.
There's likely not much you can do about it, if there's not enough bass you may have to seek out a larger amplifier.

Acoustic reaserch subwoofer dont have any sound


If this is a powered sub then it's most likely the internal amp inside it that has failed. It's more than likely the part that works the hardest on the board. IE the main amp semicoductor.

Hello
Did you find the value of ZD3.
I need it too.
I have the same problem, and I take out the ZD3 and the subwoofer works. But I'm not sure that is correct. I think it may be the circuit stand by.

Replacing sub speaker


I wouldn't try reinventing it by replacing the driver. Drivers and their enclosures are designed to work together. And this being a self-amplified subwoofer, there is one more piece that's electrically optimized to the rest. Don't mess with it.

Why don't you just set your receiver's individual relative speaker volume levels so the sub isn't weak by comparison to your other speakers? Weakness, as you call it, is relative.

Is your receiver properly channeling Low Frequencies to the sub? Experiment with the cutoff, too.

This problem doesn't require meatball surgery.

Fuse on subwoofer keeps blowing


Subwoofers draw a tremendous amount of power. With the amount of heat generated by amperage flow and the movement of the voice coil, you may have burned out the coil. Do a resistance check across the coil. Easy check? Temporarily attach another speaker to replace that one. Use LOW VOLUME and slowly work the vol up,and, if the fuse does not blow, it's the other speaker.

Try installing an old creative driver for digital audio but use system restore to take a backup of your settings first. Also, you may have to update the bios and unselect the AUTO mode for sound.
