15" JBL Sub

Well i had a 15" sub and whenever iturned it up it sounded like ****. So i talked to my buddy and he said that it wasnt getting enough power to the sub. So i went out and bought a 400rms pioneer amp. I turned the gains down to about 25% and i turned it up. Well now it sounds like its just punching the sub. Theres no sub sound in it anymore. Its like someones hitting it from the back and it sounds like ****, i dont know what to do. Please help!!

That is a compleately stretched voice coil my friend
only thing to do is take it to where you bought it for warantee
or purchase a sub that will be effiecient in the box you have
also there could be a chance that your impedence is not matched for the proper amplifier output
what is the resistance on your coil or coils

I have a single 15" sub woofer in a box it was


Simply put, burned voice coil. Either too much power can do this or not enough power with distortion. solution- if the sound is clear then its too much power- turn the amp down. If the sound is distorted and raspy- its not enough power and your getting distortion-get bigger amp.

Trying to put ported reccomended subs in sealed box.


Well, 1.6 cubic foot for a 15 is not nearly enough. A ported box for 1 15 should be in atleast 3 cubes by itself. I suggest building a new box yourself or getting someone else to do it for you. If factory specs on those subs is no larger than 3 cubes per sub then I'd get the box built to 3 cubes per sub after all displacement and tune it in the upper 30's range. Putting big subs like that in a small sealed enclosure can and will damage a sub. and if you try to port an enclosure that is too small to begin with that will also hurt the woofer. Do it right or learn the hard way.

Two A2300HCX amp on ONE AW1508X is it possible? Over doing it?


Nothing is too much but surely it's worse and destructive if you don't have enough. If you can bridge the amp to power a single sub that would be the best. So if money is not a factor then having too much will only be destructive once you set it more than it's limits, you'll know when that happens. It will be very annoying or really quiet.

Can I mix subs


You can, but if you wire them in parallel that is a pretty heavy load on your amplifier. It may even sound better to use one sub until you can get some more power behind them.

Rule of thumb, you can never have enough power! Check out my tips on wattage.

well my friend either your amp is not powerful enough to push your subs or you have a sub that is shorting out cause i just had the same problem with my 2 15 kicker cvr competition subs

I HAVE A NEW AMP AND SPEAKERS, AND THEY DONT SOUND ANY DIFFERENT.


if you dont have a crossover you will not get the best performance out of your sub. you need to seperate the frequencies and send only the lows to the sub woffers.

Speakers cut off when bass goes up...


it might be that your wires from your amp to your subs are too thin. since they were relatively new the first three months, they were probably undamaged, but after pushing them too much, they probably have broken wires, and can't get enough power to the subs when turned up, i suggest getting thicker wires before investing in a capacitor, it could save you money.
