Re: aw1206t sub wont work

How do you fix that problem. Cuz i have the same problem too. I hook up one 10 inch sub and it works but when i hook up the second one the red light on my amp comes on. Both subs used to work fine.

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.

I have 2 10' sony xplodes connected to a 2

If your radio is still playing and the subs are giving you music, you most likely have the amp remote wire hooked to a constant power source on the radio. Generally, this is a solid blue wire on both the radio and the wiring harness. It allows the radio to turn the amp on and off when the radio is on or, subsequently, off.

2 MTX Thunder Problem.. Bridging?

Is there a option on the chanels that say ''Bridged''? If so, you can hook the subs up in parellel or series to get different ohm loads. Usually the lower ohms, the more power amp puts out. Those subs can handle 225 watts RMS whitch means the power it can handle constantly. If the amp gives more than 225 watts RMs, you could be at risk of blowing the sub. If you could give me the model # of the amp, I can be of more help.

Subs will pound then suddenly stop, when you turn the ignition back they will sometimes start to pound.

What you must do is check the amplifier when they stop playing.

Check wether the amplifier is not in protection.

If it is feel how hot the amplifier is. You may have the subs wired incorrectly to the amplifier.

Check the thickness of your power cabling. If it is not thick enough then the amplifier will also go into protection.

IYou can also try disconnecting 1 of the woofers to see if maybe you dont have a faulty sub.

My subs sound distorted and dont pound right 2 12in cvr kickers and a kingwood 2 channel amp think its not wired right

Are you sure the polarity is correct on the sub's connectors? This is very important as reversing them will cause the sub to pound inward instead of out. Make sure the wires are thick enough and that the amp's + connector goes to the red(or +) connector on the sub and that the amp is grounded properly to a clean piece of metal on the car's body. This ground wire should also be as short as possible. Also make sure the fine-tuning for the bass level on the amp is adjusted correctly and that the sub's enclosure is the correct specification ie. Ported or sealed, right size, etc.
