Whats up!!! well check this out. The sub isnt working at all? don't hear anything from it? more then likely it can be one of the following problems.

before you do these steps make sure that the amp levels are all the way low so you dont have a chance in poping the sub for unnecessary jolts of power

you can check to see if the sub itself is good by getting a AA and touching each of the speaker +- on the sub see if you hear anything. More then likely the sub itself is good.
Moving on to the amp. Do you see any lights? red/green? or none

if no lights check the pos/neg terms and make sure there properly installed. have to check underneath the hood for that while your there check the fuse if its a inline one if not then there should be a fuse located on the amp itself.
if you see green then the amp is getting power and the amp is properly grounded
if nothing check the grounding and make sure thats its connected to the frame of the vehicle either by sanding down a small piece of the metal exposing the silver and using a self-tapping screw.

You need to get another amp for your sub. I would say if you want good quality go for MTX because I have had amps from MTX and never had a problem. what you need to know is look at the fuses on the amp if there are 3 of the 25 amp fuses on there then it should push out about 750 watts but on MTX they under clock the amp so it will push about 800 at 14.4 volts for that you will need a 4 gauge wiring kit with a 60 amp fuse in the fuse link. As far as your other amp hook up the speakers and tweeters to that but be sure to tune in down and you would need a 8 gauge wiring kit. I hope this helps you.

Need to know how to wire my system ...I have the infinity reference series 611a I was told it was a mono block but it has two channels on the exterrior...also I have two 12 inch MTX thunder dual voice coil...


it all depends on what kind of box the mtx subs are in as far as wiring the subs. The best way would be take the speaker wire from both sub boxes and run the positive into the right positive then the negative into the left negative. and run 8 gauge wiring kit to the amp because 10 might be to small and 4 is to big 8 gauge is perfect for this amp.

Can you help with my wiring?


The more amp you are pushing the better. Better too much amp then not enough. How many watts per speaker? less then the amp I hope. When you need decibles the more air you push the louder it will be. Enclose in a MDFB enclosure or plexiglass and feed towards each other and port the box to the sides. This will cause some annoyance. We ran 2 rockforts @1000 watts and abtained 137dc before the back windshield blow out,,lol

I have a mtx thunder 7801 and a sledge hammer box


Sounds like the subs are blown with the voicecoils fused together which means the amp is/was seeing a dead short ( zero Ohms reisitence) not good for any amp. Disconnect the speaker terminals from the amp and see if it turns on. The funny smell might have been the subs blowing up, i'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

1501d,, What subs should i use/


I would stick with Kicker or MTX. The best place in my mind to get them is soncelectronix.com
Just try to mach the specs as close as possible. Make sure to look at the recommendations of the subs for the size of the box and the port volume.

Just put an MTX TE1501D amp in my truck but it isnt getting power?


Hello,

First check all the fuses to make sure none of them are blown. If they are that is the cause.

Second, make sure your amp is properly grounded. 9 out of 10 times power problems are caused by not being grounded. Make sure your ground wire is connected to a bare spot in your car meaning it touches metal.

Post back if you need further assistance. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

My car AMP will play for a few minutes, then just Turn OFF


Is your sub single voice coil or dual? If it's dual, is it wired in paralel or series? It's possible for an amp the heat up so fast, the outside is not hot to the touch. Also, the next time it happens, use a paperclip and short the 12+ to the remote wire on the amp and see if it comes on. Let me know, and be sure to leave feedback or I don't get paid
