Subs not hitting

Everything is hooked up to the sub box, amp, and battery. The amp is on and the lights on the sub box are lighting up to the beat, but the subs arent hitting. What could be the problem?

What puts out more power when subs are ran in series or parrelall


Depends on your amp, ohm rating of your sub, box dimensions and ports or chamber size, size of vehical.
Run the subs in 2 ohm if the subs and the amp can handle the demand. Look for the Qtas of the sub. You'll loose 1/2 of the control to stop the sub if you run it in two ohm. You'll blow the works up if any part of this equation isn't up to the task of a 2 ohm load.
If your budget, space allows, run it in 4 ohms at the max RMS of the lessor (sub and or amp) and add more amps for more subs for more effect. A very well designed box/enclosure with an average component list can make a wonderful sound. It will usually beat a bigger budget sub/amp setup in a generic box. Theres lots of science that goes into a great sound. Dig into it and have fun

I have two audiobahn aw1206t 12in. subs in a box hooked to a 100.1 american bass amp its 1000 watt mono block. i also ran a capacitor due to my lights dimming. but for some reason my amp keeps kicking over...


This could be caused due to the impedance load being to low. Your amp is stable to 2 ohm load however its very possible that you have your subs wired to a 1 ohm load that would cause the amp to go into protect mode. The subs you have are dual 4 ohm voice coils and would need to be wired in series/parallel. I've included a link that will show you how the subs should be wired.

Why doesnt my jl 1000.1 pick up my 13.5w7


ohm load check the way you wired it if the amp can handle 1ohm make the sub 1 ohm dule 2 ohm subs hook the neg from one coil to the pos on the other then take the empty neg hook it bridged to the neg on the amp and empty pos to the pos on the amp also check to see if you hooked it up bacwards subs dont hit hard when they are beating in and not out

Subs stoped


Any sub can be blown in 30sec if given bad clipped power, so just measure them with a multimeter and see if the coils still have resistance. Throw away the test light and only use a multimeter.

Sub cutting out


Check the 12v wire running from the battery to the amplifier. Also the sony explode is a garbage subwoofer compared to the Alpine.. sony (they say 1200w max but its more like 100w to power the thing) Amp could be going. Is the amplifier hot when running. If there is a burnt smell comming from the amp, its the amplifier
