Question about Pioneer TS-W3004SPL Premier 12" SPL Component Subwoofer with 3000 Watts Max. Power Car Speaker

1 Answer

Premier sub used to work great ... now nothing

Ok, i have a Premier TS3004 12" hooked up to a MA Audio HK898 w/ 1 farad cap. the amp had no problem whatsoever pushing the 12. last week, i noticed the bass was not as loud as it used to be (i also have 2 10's powered with a seperate amp). poped the trunk and found the 12 not doing a damn thing. I've checked voltage on the amp, has power, no faulty ground. took the sub out of the box and it seems the connections are ok. the voltmeter goes from 0.00 to 0000.00 when a signal is sent to the 10's and the 12. wtf is going on with my subwoofer. i set the 12 on a 4ohm load and my amp gets up to 600rms@4ohm, so there's no problem there. but absolutely no sound is coming out of the sub!! somebody have any idea what is going on with this??????

Did you check to make sure that you didn't blow a channel in the amp? Another thing to check would be the connection on the inside of your box, maybe there is just a wire loose.

I have 2 MA AudioMA100XE 600 watt woofers and a 1500watt monoblock amp hooked up to them now. they dont hit as hard as my old 800 watt ma audio amp that blew. why is that?


mono block anps are usually rated at lower impedance.
if your subs are dual 4 ohm , i'd wire all v/cs in parallel for a 1ohm load... unless the amp is all chromed up, than that rating is probably a WLS rating(when lightning strikes)... if the box says anaba group it typically does half of what it advertises.. :-(

Amp burned out but fuses still good?


this is caused by inproper wiring from the speakers/subs to the amplifier.. an amp will still put out power to subs and speakers when it's wired improperly but it won't last for very long doing it... 6 months is longer than usual....

The cable should not cause the problem unless it is shorting out somewhere on the remote or positive cable. I would use a larger gauge wire first as this is the cheaper way to go, and if the same problem occurs you are having a short in the sub or box causing the protection mode. You will have to back trace to find possible cross connections.

Amp cutting out


Sounds like your amp is over heating. it wouldnt have nothing to do with a power cap as it would just die. your making your amp work to much. look into bying a line driver as this will boost the volume going into the amp wich will also make the subs louder

Amp not functioning right


Check the wires for a lose connection or corrosion. You may need a capacitor.

Basically, at low power the amplifier is not asking for a lot of power from the electrical system to power your sub woofer. For lack of a better term and probably the best way to explain it is. It uses up all the power in the wires leading to it at a high volume, and has to wait for more. Kind of like when someone squeezes a garden hose2_bing.gif when your trying to use it. That would be the high volume, starving the amplifier. The capacitor stores power in it to power the amp at high volume. 2 farads would probably be bulletproof on a single amplifier system, but 1 farad should work well enough. Or seek help from an expert on exactly what size capacitor you should use. If you find yourself saying: My amp cuts out.

If this assisted in solving your problem, please take the time to rate it. Thank you.

You're using the wrong control wire. You're likely using a wire marked antenna control. You need to use the one marked amp control. They are both blue.
