Question about JVC KS-AX3500 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Hooking up only one sub, no sound.

This is a new install of the JVC ax3500 amplifier, the woofer has been tested on another amp and is working, the woofer doesnt produce any sound. It does however make small vibrations when a lot of bass is being played. I tried changing the RCA cables to different positions as well as turning the HPF and LPF switches on and off and one on one off, all different possible combinations.

Amp power light is on, but sub not making sound ?

If you have power, and the amp has previously worked.
Check your audio input and make sure you do not have any filters on like a sub woofer crossover, that you do not want.

If that still doesn't work try hooking up a different speaker for testing purposes.

I hope this helps

My amp is on but when the bass hits it pulls the sub back and it goes into protect mod what can i do to fix this?

You may have a woofer with an impedance that is not correct for your amplifier, or possibly a damaged woofer. Try hooking up a different sub in your car without moving your amp, see if it does the same thing. If it does your amp has an internal issue. If it doesn't you know it's the sub.

I have jvc car audio model # kd-g335 how to connect my sub woofer?

You can not connect the subwoofer directly to your head unit. You need an amplifier installed to play the sub woofer. Asuming that there is an amplifier installed then: If your head unit has an RCA output on the rear, connect that to the LINE IN of your amplifier. Also there should be a Blue&White cable at the rear of the head unit.(amplifier remote) That should be connected the the remote terminal on the amplifier. (this will turn the amp on and off when the head unit turns on or off) Hope this helps. dreamsystems

I have a passive 450 watt sub that i have conected to my amp but i get no sound my amp is a mc voice 5.1 esl 24 bit amp

If this is a straight power amp it might require a pre amp
that inputs decoded 5.1 signal other wise the sub may not be receiving an input signal.
make sure there is nothing wrong with the sub by hooking it to one of the other channels FL or FR if this works then it got to be a problem with no signal getting to the sub woofer.

Hooking up a new 8" woofer speaker to my amplifier

If I'm reading the amp manual right, you should be able to connect the amp in 3 channel mode. To do this:
  • Connect both left door speakers in parallel to Ch A Left.
  • Connect both right door speakers in parallel to Ch A Right.
  • Bridge Ch B and connect it to the new 8" sub.
  • Set the Ch A LPF/HPF to HPF.
  • Set the Ch B LPF/HPF to LPF.
This should allow you to run all 4 door speakers and the sub from the amp. It will also automatically route non-bass to the door speakers and "only bass" to the sub.

Amp light is on but no power to my subs!

Hi There.

When you say the 40 Amp fuse blew. Was it your mains battery fuse or was it the fuse on the amplifier? If it was the fuse on the amplifier then you may have hurt the amplifier. The Kenwood KAC-8101D is a 1000 Watt monoblock amplifier. Therefore if you say that 1 of your woofers is not playing, then it is almost certainly blown if you are sure it is connected correctly. Try disconnecting it and only running the woofer that tries to play. If this woofer is still working correctly, you will notice a drastic drop if the sound of your bass. The reason for this is because you have changed the impedance load on your amplifier due to the fact that the other woofer is not working. Have your working woofer checked and replace the faulty woofer then you should be banging again.

Hope this helps!!
