SOURCE: subwoofer works at high volume, doesnt work at low volume

You had the settings set incorrectly and overdrove it. The voice coil leads are burn't open. If you look at the little flexible braids by the terminals I'll bet they are black/brown and maybe even burn't in half. It's toast.

SOURCE: bridging to 12 inch kicker competition subs to my 1000 watt alpine 4 channel amp

I'm a bit confused. For Alpine amps, the "M" prefix is for monoblock (aka single channel) amps and the "F" prefix is for multichannel amps. The only M550 I find is an MRD-M550, which is a monoblock, not a 4 channel like you say.
Unfortunately, I can't give you accurate help until we know weather it's truly 1 channel or 4 channel. Then I'll be glad to help!

SOURCE: My car subwoofers work, but theres no bass

turn them off and carefully push in on the cone (gently) and listen for scratching or scraping- push strait in and they should flow freely in and out if they DO without feeling or hearing scraping the subs are probably ok, next its either the amp is not powerful enough or the box is not soundly built, by that i mean its too small for the subs- is the box ported or sealed? if ported try plugging off the vent temporarily and see if bass increases if it does i would permanently seal the box

Hey names Nathan and I just got a kicker ZX300.1 and a I connected it to my kicker comp 12 and an alpine cde 102. So the problem is that the protection light flashes with the beat of the bass at high...


Your speaker wires could be shorting to ground at the subs or at the amp. You could be experiencing a drop in voltage when the bass hits. Check your power connection at the battery, fuse and amp. Check your ground connection at the chassis connection and at the amp.

Alpine 9845 cde head unit car stereo i Cannot figure out how to access the Fader not the balance,altho i havent seen that function either. ive been to the alpine site and they dont even mention it. im sure...


Press the Rotary encoder (CDE-9845/CDE-9843
only) or press MODE (CDE-9841 only) repeatedly
to choose the desired mode.
Each press changes the modes as follows:
BASS → TREBLE → SUBWOOFER* → BALANCE → FADER
→ DEFEAT → VOLUME → BASS
BASS: -7 ~ +10
TREBLE: -7 ~ +7
Subwoofer : 0 ~ +15
Balance : L15 ~ R15
Fader : R15 ~ F15
Defeat : ON/OFF
Volume : 0 ~ 35

Subwoofer for alpine cde-9843


In short, no.

The CDE-9843 cannot drive a sub of the type you mention without an amp, but you can fit a sub with it's own built-in amp.

As standard, the head unit has a basic in-built amp supplying 4 x 16w RMS at 4ohms but there is the facility via the unit's own menu to turn off the in built amp and use the output sockets as a pre-amp feed, but in reality if you want to drive an amp you'd be better off to start with a more highly specified head unit to begin with, even the next model up, the CDE-9845 is better suited as there are pre-outs for front and rear speakers.

Subwoofer doesn't play through ipod, only radio and cd's


Hook up the remote wire from the head unit (grey w/ orange stripe) to the power antenna wire (blue) on the wiring harness adapter.

No sound from sub woofer Mutant MTSBP12 fiat punto 57 plate


Hi Mate

Just installed this Bass pack into mine today and I initially had no sound either.

Check all of the following.

- Make sure that you have a good earth to the chassis. (Check for green power light led on amp).
- Make sure that your remote signal wire (blue) is connected to the right out on the back of the head unit. If it doesn't have one, use the power antenna wire.
- Check inline and amp fuses, if either is blown, it's most likely a bad earth - clean up contact area/blot with wire brush/wire wool.
- Check the underside of your head unit to see if there's a switch to activate the pre-outs on the back of your unit.
- Check your owners manual about how to actually turn on the sub!! I have an Alpine unit and you need to turn it on from within the menus. There was also a seperate bass level setting.
- Carefully adjust gain and crossover until you get bass.

Hope this helps....If you get any more probs, give me a shout at obzy@blueyonder.co.uk

Cheers

Hi Gott Mudd,

 

I can relate to feeling it in the bones. You got the stuff to do it.  You should try the Alpine MP3 head units with bass boost, those are bad to the bone.

 

Wiring: 

 

Amp to Speaker I like to use the code VC for Voice coil, and AO for Amplifier output.  Also + for positive.  If I say VC1-, I am referring to the first connector starting left to right on the Alpine Sub. Now I have not seen a Kicker KX1200.1 amplifier.  All I see are MRA, MRP, or PDX prefix on the part numbers. So take what I am saying as a guess. You may want to revisit looking at the model of the amp to be sure your giving the right information.

 

We are going for  2 Ohms. Paralleling the two subs, not the voice coils. The voice coils will be series.  Bridge the amp if necessary to get mono channel. only using AO+ and AO- for output.

 

AO+ to Sub1VC1+

AO+ to Sub2VC1+

Sub1VC1- to Sub1VC2+

Sub2VC1- to Sub2VC2+

AO- to Sub1VC2-

AO- to Sub2VC2- 

 

Set your Crossover to LPF

Adjust the bass gain down to lowest until you test.

Set the Frequencies to midrange between 40 and 100hz  

 

Your box can be ported or not. It depends on the space your have.  If you do not have much room, go Enclosed and build a box that the inside space is less than 1 cubic foot.  Make sure you give barely  enough clearance for the speaker to fit.  If you have room, Go with a box and vent it with a 3 inch Vent tube 10 inches long.
