That sounds to me like the woofer is blown.

    p.s. If you could hook the same speaker up to another amp and it does the same thing, you could confirm that the problem is with your speaker (rather than your amp).

Why is my pyle pro pt 2000 burning the fuses


When using this type of amplifier, especially to run subwoofers, you need to use a capacitor of at least 1F in value across the power input. Large capacitors counteract the effect of voltage drops caused by audio program elements such as heavy kick drum beats or other low-frequency spurious elements, and can save your car alternator from being damaged as well.

When I hook up the speakers in the back to the left and right side for the in and out, do I connect the front or rear speakers. do the speakers connect to the subwoofer first then to my receiver or the...


I was trying to find an owner's manual or picture of the rear panel of the sub, but had no luck. The subwoofer is a powered type - or "active" speaker. This means it has a built in amplifier. These active subs usually provide for one or both "low level" and "high level" inputs. Low level signals are usually carried by shielded coaxial cables and have RCA type plugs on the end. The low level is also called "line level". This is an un-amplified signal that might be heard on cheap earphones - but that's about it. It is similar to the output of a tape deck, DVD or phonograph. These signals require an amplifier to be heard. If you have a sub woofer output on your receiver or amplifier, you could run a patch cable between the low level input on the subwoofer and the subwoofer output of the amp or receiver. You receiver or amp may call this output "low frequency effects" or similar. The front and rear speakers would then connect directly to the receiver or amp's corresponding connections.

If you lack low level outputs on the amp or subwoofer, you'll need to run speaker wires from the amplifier or receiver's front left and right speaker output terminals to the subwoofer's high level input terminals. High level signals are speaker connections or amplified signals. These are typically connections that accept bare wire connections. The front speakers would then connect to the subwoofer's front left and right speaker output terminals. The rear speakers connect to the amplifier.

I hope this helps - and good luck!

The saftey red light keeps coming on


It means that the subwoofer is blown. The red light is called the Protect light. Disconnect the speaker wire from the amp and then turn the amp on and see if the red light goes away. But if as soon as you hook the speaker wires back to the amp and the red light turns on that DEFINATELY means the sub is blown.

I hooked up 2channel 500 watt amplifer and 1200 watt 300 rms subwoofer now the protection light comes on when i turn up volume


your speakers rating is too low for your amplifier. 300 watts RMS means the speaker can operate on an average of 300 Watts continuously. the 1200 watt rating is peak wattage input and meant for intermittent intervals only, a like a bass drum beat count. also , your speaker impedance must match your amplifier impedance or the speaker must be a higher impedance than the amplifier. Never lower than the amplifier's impedance output rating. If The amplifier is rated into an 8 ohm load, your speaker must be 8 ohms or higher. in other words you cannot use a 4 ohm speaker or you will damage the amplifier .

Subwoofer seems to be bumping way too fast for the beat.


It sounds like you need to use or at least adjust the crossover. It should be on the amp and are sometimes adjustable. Make sure it is set to "Low Pass" and the sub should be playing nothing above 120Hz or so. Most people don't like the way that sounds and cross it over lower around 60hz or 80Hz. Try that and let me know if you still have a problem.

Subwoofer


Most AV receivers do not have a built in amplifier block to drive a subwoofer, and merely provide the subwoofer output channel at line voltage. Thus, a powered subwoofer is required. Does the subwoofer require mains power? From your description, I'm guessing it doesn't. If not, it does not have a buit in amplifier, you will need to purchase a monoblock amplifier, which is just a mono amplifier with a volume control, no tone controls or anything else. Make sure that the amplifier power rating is as close as possible to the subwoofer power rating, as it is quite possible to blow a speaker by using an amplifier whose power output is too low, by overdriving the amplifier , and putting DC through the voice coil when the amplifier clips. If it does require mains power, it will have an amplifier built in, but does not have line level inputs.
