Question about Infinity Reference 1052W Subwoofer - 10" Dual 4 Ohms Polypropylene Cone Butyl Rubber Surround Car Speaker

1 Answer

Blown sub, butIdon't know why

My Infinity Reference 10" 1052W blew about a week ago. It was in a small enclosed box with roughly 170W x 2 channels x 4ohms pushed through it. I used 2 channels, 1 on each coil. The speaker was not torn and when I push or pull on the speaker cone, I hear bass. If it just sits naturally, it doesn't work. Can someone tell me if it is repairable or what may have caused it? Thank you.

If you use a right channel on one coil and a left on the other different frequencies are going in different directions in each channel thus blowing a coil or badly damaging it-z

If the lights on your sub box aren't coming on it's either your ground of power wire came loose or the transformer blew. As for the subs, make sure all the connections are good, especially on your RCA wires. If your amp is getting power, then check your speaker connections. Also, make sure to turn the gain know up. The gain knob is located next to the RCA input on the amp. Let me know if this helps.

Check your subwoofer for resistance. It is more likely you blew a sub than a channel on the amplifier. If your subwoofer has no resistance, which can be checked using a multi-meter, then it is blown.

Need to know how to wire my system ...I have the infinity reference series 611a I was told it was a mono block but it has two channels on the exterrior...also I have two 12 inch MTX thunder dual voice coil...


it all depends on what kind of box the mtx subs are in as far as wiring the subs. The best way would be take the speaker wire from both sub boxes and run the positive into the right positive then the negative into the left negative. and run 8 gauge wiring kit to the amp because 10 might be to small and 4 is to big 8 gauge is perfect for this amp.

Subwoofer buldging out problem


When speakers are wired in the wrong way the will do the "pushing out" you're describing. Basically the polarities have been reversed and if kept like this over a period of time will blow the speaker. Best thing to do is to disconnect the power by the negative on the amp and take out the fuse from the power supply. Check the wires running from the amp to the subs, negative to negative and positive to positive. I know it sounds basic but many people do mix it up! I would also check to see what channels the subs have been wired into?

Best way is to have one sub from channel 1 and the other sub from channel 2 for example. Or if its a bridged 4 channel amp, have 1 sub running from channel 1&2, and the second sub running from channel 3&4 still making sure of the polarities. Again this all depending what kind of amp and sub you have.

-----------------------------
For example;
A 4 channel (bridged) 1000W amp. 250W max per channel or 500W per 2 channels! So if you have 2 500W subs, by connecting one to a single channel will decrease subs ability due to the lack of power supplied. However by combining 2 channels you optimize the output!
---------------------------

Once you know all your wiring from your amp to subs are ok/good connections/good wires etc you shouldnt have to "wiggle the wires" to get it to work as this is just a bad connection. Also ensure that no 2 wires are touching. Make sure that the master volume on the amp is turned down. You dont need this to be on loud at all, in fact far from it or you'll risk damaging both the amp and subs!

Hope this helps!

Thunping coming from subs when car is turned off.


2 things to try, one. run your RCAs on the opposite side of the car as the positive wire. if you still hear the thumping try changing your RCAs. if you still hear the thumping, try a different anp or head unit. if you still hear the thumping, your subs are blown. best of luck

Infinity Entra Sub 150 no sound or power


I had the same problem. When I opened it up, the fuse was blown, and it was a pain to find the fuse it needs (3 Amp, 250 V slow-blow fuse, 5x20 mm). Also, the 2 large electrolytics (big purple things near the amp) and one small capacitor were all blown. For 4 fuses, bought seperately from, and the 2 electrolytics and 1 capacitor, it cost about $20, plus almost 20 more in shipping, which still isnt bad considering the original price of the sub. However, the tricky part is that you have to know how to use a soldering iron to take out the old components and put in the new ones.

Subs cutting out


Agree with Kev. Even if the woven lead wire looks ok, it can still be bad. I unsoldered it, clipped a lil from both ends, and re-soldered it. Works great now.

Protect light flashing/ticking


this problem sound like you have too low of power going to your amp, test your battery and make sure its putting out enough power for at least the mininum amount of power that your amp requires, you can find that information in your manual or sometimes they post it on the amp itself. i hope this info helps
