Subs not working but amp is

Hey my subs stopped working on me the other day so today I was checking found an un-related problem with the amp so I changed it out but am still having problems, I have even tried changing RCA cables from the deck to the amp, and checking the wires from the amp to the cone of the Sub but all was ok. They would stop before but come back on, either on there own or if I hit a good bump

Re: Subs not working but amp is

Sounds like a Ground problem on the amplifier earth connection to chassis, could be a little loose if so.. also check if the paint is scraped off, so there is good ground. Also check all positive 12+ on the amplifier if all wires is tight. Cheers mate

How can i get my speakers fixed

It may not be the subs, but the amp could have caused the subs blowing/freezing up. If an amp is clipped it will send to much voltage to the subs, thus blowing the subs. Clipping the amp is when someone sets the gains on the amp to higher than the sub can handle. Find this out before you buy new subs. If not, you may have blown subs again.

Subwoofers won't work and they are brand new


I've got a pair of these MTX's subs powered from a Fusion 450 watt 2-channel amp. For the price, they are great. By the way, they are 4-ohm.

My first suspicion would be that something in the first incorrect wiring damaged either the amp or the subs. Can you explain specifically what the "installing the subs incorrectly" means? Was the amp output shorted out at any time or was it operated without a load? Either of these conditions will fry an amp and sometimes, the protection circuitry doesn't work either.

First make sure that your amp is still working. Check both the primary power fuse, usually located near the vehicle battery, and the fuses on both sides of the amp. Make sure that when you turn the system on, the power light comes on steady (blinking is protection mode). Test your subs one at a time on a speaker output.

Subs stopped working & protect light on the amp is red...

well at this point i would say it is both,, the subs fried because your amplifier passed dc [direct current] and fried the voice coils on your subs....return them if they are under warranty,, the amplifier sound like you either operated it beyound its specifications or it has a defective output stage allowing it to pass or leak turned the voice coils into the equivelent of the runners in a toaster oven....when an amp passes dc it is going to do so to whatever speakers you hook to either bring it to a shop to be fixed/ return it to place purchase for exchange or throw it away.....or you will continue to experience the same problems....I am the amp goes into protection when it detects a short...[ the short is produced by the amp and it is detecting its own fault and putting it in to protection after it BURNS up your drivers....

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.
