I had the same problem double check your grounds, thats all it was

Be sure you havent already burned voice coils in the also reccomend only running one of those type rs in a ported box it will run one no problem without the CUR error

"CUR" basically means there is a short in the wire... i had that problem with the exact same amp... except mine kept cutting in and out and eventually just didn't get any power at all. use a voltmeter on your inline fuse on your power wire... my install kit came with an 80A fuse... what happens is if your amplifier draws enough amps... say 70-75... it will melt the connecters on the fuse but wont blow it... that was my problem... switched the fuse and everything worked fine... if thats not it, check your ground... or just make sure your wires arent fried. i have 6 gauge wiring for mine and it does just fine, 8 gauge should be changed for this amp.

My legacy 12 inch subs are making a crackling sound what can do?

Hi rodneybarton

The problem of your unit may be its amplifier. You need to open the box and inside of it, there is a component that attached on the heatsink you need to replace that one. or better send your unit to qualified technician.

I just got done with 10 others like this with the same problem, just look at some of my other solutions to see what you will be doing. Basically you need to upgrade your entire charging system to run these amps, You guys are not even considering the power draw that it takes to keep these things running at full power! You need to plan out your system way before you start to buy things to make sure that you will only have to install it once and do it correctly. It all starts with the power available from your alternator. You will have about 40 to 60 amps of left over current to use from a stock alt after it has to charge the battery and power the car while driving. That means you can have a head unit drawing 15 amps and a sub amp that will draw 35 to 40 amps before you will need to upgrade your entire charging system. Failure to do this will result in Batteries lasting 1 year a new alt every summer, your amps will burn up the insides a few times before you realize the importance of this all.

2 12" subs + 600W amp. Turn on, goes boom once, then red light

Is your gain all the way up? If it done this before, sounds like your over working the amp. Make sure your subs ohm load is capable with the amp load to. If they are 1 ohm and your amp is only 2 ohm stable, it would beat for a lil bit then go into protection mode to. Check your wires too.

your pre-amp output has failed.
it will require repair.
use your voltmeter and measure the voltage from the RCAs.... it should be approx. 2.5v
If nothing - it is in need of repair.

Subwoofer to receiver hookup

In general, there are two ways to hook up your sub-woofer. First using the high level outputs from your receiver ( speaker output from the front R & L speaker terminals ) run a set of wires from the outputs to the speaker inputs on the sub-woofer, you do this in concert with the speaker wires going to the front R & L speakers which you then attach to the R & L speaker outputs on the sub woofer amp. Note that the sub woofer doesn't power your front speakers, the connections from the sub amp are just a pass through connection where the signal needed by the sub is parasitically taken from the inputs.
Second is via a low level output from your receiver / amp to the low level input on your sub amp. This is normally done via a RCA type of patch cable and connected to the sub woofer RCA jack on the rear of the source receiver or amp, Next run the patch cord to the sub amp an into the RCA jack input. IF you have a right and left input, use the Right input.
