It sounds like the wiring either to the amp or to the subs is put together wrong. This can be because you have them setup in stereo but have the sub on bridge mode or vica versa. This can also be from how you ran the audio input wither from speakers or rca..either wired wrong or the switch for the two options is wrong. Also make sure your gain is turned up. Sound also depends on what kind of box it is in. It HAS to be in a box.

Hi ,how can i connect my two 10 inch JBL double voice 4 ohms coils to my jbl gto 7001 amp


It is confusing with the 4 channels it gives you but you really only need to connect it to one or the other positive and negative terminals. The amps channel setup looks like this + - + - . You can connect to the first positive and negative, the second, or combine them. I had mine installed by a professional which is how I know. Also if you want to run your amp at 2 ohms then connect the subs voice coils in a parallel circuit which means that all positives are connected to each other and the same goes for the negatives. it should match the impedances of both sub and amp. Hope this helps!

I have a Kenwood KAC-9105D amp with 2 Rockford fosgate 10 inch subs in a sealed box. When i turn the volume up loud the bass fades out for a few secs and then comes back to being loud again, this keeps...


It's the battery, not enough juice to supply your amp at loud volumes so the bass will drop out especially on long bass notes. Replace your battery!

I have a 500/1 mono jl audio amp and two w3 10" woofers, every time my bass hits hard my low ohm light will flicker on and off but the light doesn't stay on to long it only flickers every time the bass...


not really a problem, your just running a the threshold of the amps comfort zone, a lil trick to raise your impedance a little bit its to run an additional 10 feet of wire before your sub, (longer the wire the more resistance) 10 feet should jump you up about .5 ohms. you wont hear the difference but your amp will fill it, and run a little better. 20 feet will give you right around 1 ohm. now if you dont mind loosing some power run the subs in series and then run them bridged. your amp will work harder, but run easier because its on a big open loop. but before all this take a multi meet and read out your voice coils to see what the ohm level is, then read out what it is at the speaker, then you will see 1. if the subs are okay, and 2. how much you need to raise your impedance for you amp to run comfortably.

Amp shuts off


is this a new problem or has it always done it?? it mos tlikely needs repairs, but try this first. Hook up ther + of one sub to the speaker + on the amp. Hook the - of that samne sub to the + of the other sub. Then connect the - of the other sub to the speaker - on the amp. This will run the speakers in series and will put alot less strain on your amplifgier. It will not "hit" as hard but it sbetter then having it shut of fall the time. I would also make damn sure that:
Your ground wire is large enough and properly grounded. It should be BOLTED to a solid poiece of metal on your car. Use a screwdriver, whatever so scrape off any rust as the connection should be a clean, BARE METAL connection. Next make sure your power wire and fuse are ok. If you are using round glkass fuses, replace it even if it looks good. I have seen those fuse smelt the solder in the ends. They can look great but really be bad.

SO go through all the basics and if it still gives you problems then it needs repaired. Please dont rate me un-helpful.
