IM getting a whinning noise from my speakers on my 2nd amp

Added a 6 farad cap and a distrubution block, and added a 2nd amp. My original amp and subs work fine, but when i connect speakers on my 2nd amp I get a high pitched whinning noise from those speakers
Also ran the remote wire from my 1st to the 2nd amp , not sure if that is a cause, i have different ground wires running also, not sure if im getting the whinning from a loop or bad ground?
Like i mentioned my system works perfect, its just the 2nd amp i get the noise from when the speakers are hooked up.

CHANGE YOUR REMOTE WIRE TO A SINGLE LEAD, AND THEN CHECK ALL YOUR CONNECTIONS.

Hi, im thinking of getting a new subwoofer but there's some subs with speaker cones facing from the front,back,side,or the bottom what's the difference between these different positions ?


Bling factor, as long as they are all wired in phase. Downward and side fired subs are usually the "all-in-one" type with the amp built into the sub enclosure. I would stay away from those (the type with an integrated amp) because most aren't exactly good performers. I added pictures of what I was calling "bling" which is really only good for show, unless you like having more space taken up by the box and sub.

Hello. I need help installing an Eclipse sound system in my Dodge Ram 1500 Quad cab. I went from a Kenwood HU with db Drive 6.5's and 5x7's to the Eclipse CD3200 HU and noticed an immediate improvement...


So you wanna run the subs off of the rear pre amp output rather than just the sub out correct? just get a splitter and run both the rear speakers and sub off of rear channel and front off of front channel. or run all four off of front and subs off rear output. this should give you the sound you want

I have got the Fusion FJL-1211 Class D Amplifier.When i turn the music up the amp switches off and back on until i reduce the volume and it plays fine.


your overloading the amp and its going into protect mode. turn the bass down on the deck or adjust the controls on the amp itself. get lower power rated sub(s) or more powerful amp since you won't be able to push the sub(s) you have with that one since the sub(s) is/are pulling too much power from the amp.

Hey i had 2 car amps +for 4 speakers(140W maxi) and a sub 12inch


1 cap, either .5, 1 or 1.5 farad will be fine. they make 5 10 and 20 farad that cost way more than u need to spend for 400 watts RMS. i like the rockford fosgates, you can get a low cost Tsunami, just make sure you follow the charging instructions.

I installed a scosche 500k micro farad capacitor in my truck. i have a 800w sony explode running a volvonhag 12" sub, the doors are run by a rockford 40i amp. sounds great till capacitor hook up. amp cuts...


You need to put the capacitor after the in line fuse/ distributor block. Because you are putting it on only your subs you are running it into fail because of a negatuve ground loop which is why they play low then cut out. Also check your grounds for both amps after rewiring and make sure they are tight.

Amp stoped working


You need to run a larger power/ground cable. If you are reading low, you are not getting the kind of voltage that the amplifier requires to run, you may have been fine before adding the other products but if you wired them all to the same power wire (say an 8 gauge) you'd encounter problems. You should probably use a 2 gauge or at least a 4 gauge power kit.
