U need to make sure your subs are wired correctly. And u need to make sure all your speakers are at the same ohm load. If u hook up two subs on one channel and two more on the other one u need to make sure that your subs are all 2ohm or 4ohm subs cause if u got two 4ohm subs ran parrallel then u will have a 2ohm setting and if both of them are 2ohm subs them your load will be a 1ohm load witch could harm your amp unless its an 1ohm stable amplifier.

My amp won't play bass everything is hooked up


I have a similar problem with my 2012 civic, I hooked up my 1800w kenwood mp to my 2 12" w6s and 1 song plays and sounds great, the rest of my songs have no bass from the subs, just the car speakers sound normal so I dont know what the hell thats all about. I thought it was a wiring issue but I can play the one song all day and it sounds perfect so any suggestions? thanks in advance

I have an old soundstream reference class a 5.0 and a set of mb quart pwe 254 10 duel voice coil subs. i would like to know how to wire this set up for the most power. parrallel the voice coils then run...


The Soundstream Class A 5.0 will deliver its full power at 1 ohms mono.
I think your subs are two dual 4 ohm voice coils.
If you wire the voice coils for each sub in PARALLEL, that's 2 ohm for each sub. To get 1 ohm mono, you need to hook up the subs in PARALLEL to the amplifier, in bridge mode. That's the way to get to 1 ohm mono. Please add a fan to your setup as the amplifier will get very hot. You will need to use a relay to hook up the amplifiers and fan(s) to or you will damage the remote ouput of your HU (if you hook up the fan straight to the remote of the HU) as the remote output of the HU is not designed for the amount of current a fan draws.
Good luck. If you need help with the relay issue, have a look here: http://www.caraudiohelp.com/newsletter/multiple_amplifiers.htm

When you hooked up your amp, did you hook it directly to the head unit so that it didn't come on with the car? Did you find the inline fuse in the amp positive cable? Few things to check..

Home theater hooked up volume sounds low


Check your different settings either in your t.v. or your amp. In your menu settings you can change your audio. Bass trebile etc. and even sometimes switching it from stereo,mono, dolby digital will increase your volume. Dolby digital is very quiet if your not running and exteranal amp system. so try changing it to stereo and your volume should increase.

Adjusting wattage on kenwood kac 9103 class D mono amp


That amplifier is 900W x 1 @ 2ohms.
If your subs are 4ohm SVC wired Parallel, resulting in a 2 ohm load, each sub will only see 1/2 of the rated power. (450W ea.)
Your gain (sensitivity) setting should be between 75% and 85% to max. You will be fine.

I bought a 500/1 jl audio amp and also a w7 10 sub


if its cutting off and right back on then check your ground and your power wire makes sure both are connected good and none of your fuse's are blown, either that or you got a wire hooked up backwards in the sub.. but my guess is that the sub is hooked up wrong... that sub should be hooked up in a series or in parallel,

ok if your running just one speaker, it should be hooked up like this and 2 speakers are a different way...

this is parallel :pos to pos , neg to neg, then one wire coming from pos on sub to pos on amp then neg on sub to neg on amp but bridge the amp on your amp should be 2 pos and 2 neg in two different channels take the pos off the sub into the pos on 1 channel and then the neg from sub to the neg on the other channel,

this is series : on the sub it will go pos to neg then the other neg and pos will go to the amp, but make sure the pos and neg r on different sides of the sub, dont hook them both to the same coil

if your need more help give me your email and ill send you a pic of how to do it...
