Subwoofer wont play

The amp turns on and the amp light is on. I am pretty sure the subwoofer is not blown. I actually tried another speaker off the amp and all I get is static when I hook up speaker. Is my amp blown? and sometimes my amp works. Let me know what yout think.

Check your rca cables they might be loose or not connected to the amp or the radio. Sometimes those rca cable outlets get worn out by being bumped, moved, hooking up and pulling out connectors. Plug in your rca cords and wiggle them on the amp while radio is on and see if the music cuts in and out

Hi i have problems with my subwoofer it wont play it's an alpine 12'' type e with alpine mrp m350 amp. there is light on the amp. how do I find out my subwoofer is blown or what else can be...


ok, your amp is in protect mode. either the speaker wires are crossed and shorting out, your woofer's vioce coils are melted and the speaker is blown or the amp is dead.

to determine if the speakers voice coils are melted, and thus the speaker being blown is the reason for the "protect" light, simply push in the cone of the woofer in gently with your hand. the woofer should move a little more than an inch, without any resistance, before bottoming out. if there feels to be any resistance, like a rubbing or scratching, before the woofer bottoms out, then your voice coils are fried, and you need a new woofer.

Fuse blows


Both 3 or 4 amp slow blow fuses are suitable replacements for the 3.125 amp subwoofer fuse.

It could be that the subwoofer is blowing the fuse because the one you installed was not slow blow.

But, more likely is the subwoofer has a short in the power supply which is causing the fuse to blow.
