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

Will a pioneer receiver vsx d309 run 2 8 ohm speakers and 1 jl audio w3


It will drive the speakers but not the subwoofer. U need to connect the subwoofer pre- output from your amplifier to another amplifier that will drive the subwoofer.
If you connect the subwoofer directly to your amplifiers speaker output it will force the subwoofer to play the entire spectrum of frequencies (not designed to do that) consequently causing damage to the sub and maybe even the amp. So use the sub pre out.

hope this helped

No sound from amp when amp is powered up, whats wrong? Alpine m-1000 wih alpine deck. Was told something about resetting it but don't know, please help?


There is a number of things that can cause no sound from the amp.

Check to make sure your RCA's are plugged in to the amp.
Make sure the ground and remote are not touching on the amp.
This will cause your head unit to gray out in some areas.
Verify, your subwoofers are in working order.
Test another pair of speakers on your amp to make sure.
If those speakers work, your subwoofers are fried or have come unhooked inside your subwoofer enclosure.
Make sure you have not set the head unit to Surround Sound if you have a DVD player in your vehicle.
This should be set as passive.
Make sure your gains aren't turned down on the amp.
MAKE SURE YOU DIDN'T BLOW A FUSE UNDER THE HOOD.
Even if there is a light on the top of the amp, the fuse might have blown.
Make sure a fuse on the amp didn't blow. This will in some cases cause the amp to go into protect and no bass.

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.

Brand New MRP-M500 light is on but there is no sound


Try making sure your sound input to the amp is good (could be a bad output from the radio or RCA cable), could also be a bad input from the amp, bad outputs from the amp or even a bad sub. You have to check each of these and eliminate the problem. I would make sure you have a good audio signal to the amp first.

Amp is on, but sub wont produce any bass


Make sure the subwoofer is set to low frequency, make sure subwoofer and bass are enabled on the headdeck. Make sure the gain is turned up on the amp, make sure the rcas haven't come out of the back of the head deck.

400 watt amplifier not working


Disconnect all the speaker wires from the amplifier that runs the 6-speaker system. Switch off the amplifier or disconnect the remote turn-on wire, then re-connect it. Does the power light still flash with no speakers connected? If so, your amplifier is probably damaged. If not, then connect one speaker and see if it plays. If it doesn't, disconnect the first speaker and connect a different one. If the first speaker plays, continue connecting the rest of the speakers until you find the one that's causing the problem.

Amp is on, Subwoofer works, but no sound.


here is a short test you can try, remove the rca audio cable from the amp & connect a diskman or toher audio o/p device that you can hook up with the same rca wires, turn on the amp & see if you have sound. you can also remove the speaker wires from the sub & using multi meter read the ohm's of the sub, most subs are 4 ohm. Hope this help locate your problem
