I would recommend increasing your altinator and getting a yellow top battery. Basically what is happening is your using more power than the car can produce.

Additionally please follow the instruction on your user manual to activate the SUB ,as is follows..

Low-frequency (bass) signals can be directed to the
subwoofer and/or the front left and right speakers

to output low-frequency signals from front channels to

According to the manual for your amplifier would be a good start. It's just a passive sub. Plus to plus, minus to minus.

Does the servo led stay on? If so, you might have a fractured solder joint. Inspect the switch control PCB for fractured solder joints and check the Positive and Negative 15v outputs on the same board.

Subwoofer blows internal fuse when receiver is turned on

Has it ever worked?

Try this - connect one pair of its speaker wires at a time and test it. Watch the polarity.

• Make sure all cube speaker arrays are connected to the proper terminals according to their
position in your room.
• Check to be sure all wires are connected to your surround receiver with the proper polarity
(+ to + and – to – wires). Incorrect wiring can result in a total loss of module output.
• Correct any wiring problems before you plug in your receiver and turn it on.
