I was playing a song and decided to turn the sound and bass all the way up. Bad idea. Suddenly, all sound stopped. I'm pretty sure the speakers just blew out or something. Now, no sound will come out of them at all. Any ideas on how I can fix this? Everything is still plugged in and I tried just restarting, but no luck. Suggestions would be appreciated.

Right now I am having the same problem. When the bass goes high it's an awful noise like rattling and I'm afraid I blew the speakers. But I was only listening to them on a simple iPod 3rd gen. Please helpppp!!!!
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
You might have blown the speaker. This happens when you play things too loudly and you ruin the speaker inside. You can test this by playing something with a decent amount of bass and turned up a bit. If you hear like a "rattle" in the sound or like something isn't right in the heavy bass notes, then you definitely blew the speaker out. This isn't a tragedy. They're fixable if you bring them to a place that repairs speakers. But I would definitely test it first by hooking it up and playing a loud song with a lot of bass. Hope that helps a little!

Offhand, could either be the subwoofer speaker itself or the electronics (amp and/or crossover). One way to determine is by physcially checking the sub speaker. When playing with bass on, pls try restricting speaker movement by pressing on it and see if the noise is reduced. Another is to temporarily replace the speaker. You can try speakers meant for the car, home entertainment or book shelf, just dont set the volume too high.
If the speakers are ruled out, then it would be the electronics inside. For this, you would need familiairty with electronic components and circuittry, a DVM and a soldering iron. Access to an oscilloscope and an audio signal generator would be nice but not a necessity. The idea is to inject a constant audio signal and determine where the noise (if electronic) is coming from. In most instances, it would be a leaky electrolytic capacitor either in the input stage or feedback loop. At other times, it would be also a capacitor in the band pass filter.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
If the amp still goes into protect mode, the easiest thing to do is disconnect the RCA cables from the amp and see if still goes into protect mode (after turning off/on). If it does, the issue lies in the amp or the wiring to/from the amp (most likely case). Check to make sure no speaker wires came loose and touched +12V or ground (car body). From the sound of it, my guess is something internal to the amp died and will need repair.
