Downgrade to two subs.

The simple fact of the matter is these are long out of production. Nobody can get you a replacement coils/spiders at this point.

The sub could be rebuilt, but it could only be ran by itself. It would be a different sub all together and couldnt be run with the counterparts.

Bad solution for you but the only viable one.

How do i fix a frozen 12 inch power acoustik FUBAR-12W sub


You have a case of a blown sub. You will need a recone kit. You ca send it in to a company like fix my speaker or google recone kits for Power Acoustik FUBAR. May be cheaper just to get another sub.

Both subs quit at the same time


- kkkjohnson - Please clarify your question. Do you mean they stopped working all together.
-First make sure the amp going to the subs is still working. -If not, stop and trouble shoot the amp (fuse, loose wires,etc) -If it is working, check the wires going from the amp to the subs -If the wires are connected, your next step should be to dismount the subs and hook them up to a digital multi-meter (DMM) To use a DDM to test the subs ohms do the following:
Figure out what the specs of you subs are...ie...what ohms and voice coils the are (dual 2 ohm, 4 ohm, etc. After that, place the black/negative wire/lead coming from the DMM tol the negative terminal of the sub. The place the red/positive wire/lead to the positive terminal of the sub. Then set the DMM to the ohm symbol. It should look like a horse shore symbol. Then allow 5 or 15 seconds for a accurate reading of what the ohms are. For instance a dual 2 ohm sub should read anywhere from 1.6 ohms to 2.4 ohms...each sub is difference. Check both sides/voice coils if it is dual voice coil subs. For instance if your sub is dual 2 ohm sub and you get a read that is higher than the numbers listed above (ex. 8 ohms, .05 ohms, etc); this would indicate that you have a blown sub.

I have a pioneergm-d8500m amp and it stopped working and the green led just flashes.. i bought a new amp to replace it and it just does the same thing.. what is going on to cause this


crossed speaker wires or loose strands creating a short circuit, improper speaker ohmage or a blown speaker.

verify that you dont have any positive strands coming in contact with negative strands/terminals, the amp case, the speaker frame, or any metal part of the car chassis.

verify that you only have a 2 ohm load connected to the amp. most car speakers are 4 ohm (siginfied by the greek letter "omega" on the back of the spoeaker magnet, or in the speaker specifications), but some are 2 ohm and/or 2 ohm x2 voice coils per speaker. 2x2 ohm coils/speakers would produce a 1 ohm load, which would cause the amp to overload, and go into "protect" mode. to achieve a safe load, you need to use 1x4 ohm speaker, 2x4 ohm speakers or a dual voice coil speaker with 4 ohms per coil x2 voice coils, wired in parallel.

you can also achieve 2 ohms with 2 speakers with 2x2 ohm voice coils apiece (that is, 2 speakers, each with 2 ohm voice coils apiece, 2 speakers with 4 voice coils altogether of 2 ohms apiece) by wiring the two coils per speaker in SERIES, and then wiring the two speakers circuits in PARALLEL. wiring the coils in series means connecting the positive lead of one coil to the amp positive, then connecting the same coils negative to the positive of the second coil, and finally connecting the negative from the second coil back to the amp negative terminal. if you wire both dual voice coil speakers in series, and then connect both series circuits back to the amps positive/engative, than you have the coils in series, and the speakers in parallel- achieving an overall 2 ohm load from 4 total voice coils between 2 speakers.

if you need a better explaination, comment back with your exact speaker combination (brand and model # of speakers + number of speakers), and i will provide a more specific description with your exact speaker set-up in mind.

How do you wire a AW1000V to 1 amplifier?


The easiest way to wire this would be to make sure you have a 2 ohm amp, wire both voice coils in parallel to the amp. This means to connect both + terminals on the speaker to the + speaker output on the amp, then wire both - terminals on the speaker to the - speaker terminal on the amp. With the voice coils in parallel like this it makes it into a 2 ohm load at the amplifier. If you are running for example a 1000 watt amp at 2 ohms into this speaker it would give each voice coil the equivalent of 500 watts of power at 4 ohms. The other way would be to run the voice coils in series (voice coil 1 - terminal to - speaker terminal on the amp, voice coil 1 + terminal to the voice coil 2- terminal, voice coil 2 + terminal to the +speaker terminal on the amp.) The series wiring would give you a 8ohm speaker load to your amp so you would need a 8 ohm amp.

How can i tell if a dual voice coil alpine type x is blown, apparently it was only wired in and only one voice coil was hooked up?


they best way to do this is with a multi meter on the OHMS setting.... to do this set the multi meter to the least ohms setting, usually it reads 20 or under. Connect the wires to each voice coil (by the speaker wire connections) if the multi meter reads 2 to 4 ohms whichever your speaker is, then the voice coil is not blown, but if it reads 8-10-12-14 or OL which means open loop then the coil in junk.

System cutting out


Pull the subs out of the box and check the connections... Check to see if the wires running from the connectors on the sub itself to the voice coil... had a JL 10 that had a frayed wire to the voice coil system would cut in and out. Hope its helpful
