Engine static. There should be a supressor fitted to your audio system to counter this. it may be faulty. You can install in line ones via the power cable to your system.available from auto parts outlets.

I cannot turn the volume down. i even removed the plastic button and turn the post but the volume will not go0 down


If it doesn't get louder when you increase the volume, then possibility that is not the volume control or the potentiometer isn't in volume adjustment mode. Try pushing the knob before you rotate it, it might switch to a different function. Other cause could be that the switch is smoked. This is possible specially with analog type rotary and slider potentiometers. With digital static switches it also happens when it's just so used up and doesn't conduct electricity at the contact surface inside the wafer casing.

If i put the TS-swx310 sub in a bigger box would it get help the sound.......i have a 12'' regular sized box and the speaker is going in a car now???


It is amazing the difference box construction can have on the overall sound of a system. Size is only one factor. Using a larger sealed box may make the sub hit lower, but not necessarily louder. Because the TS-swx310 is a shallow mount woofer, it is designed to run in small enclosure. Putting it in a much larger box could potentially cause damage to the woofer over time. If you want more bass my advice is to use a normal woofer in a box built to spec for it. Generally a ported box will provide more output, and sealed hits tighter. It all depends on the type of music you listen to.
Hope this helps

I have a few problems. i have 2 amps and 4 subs. first problem is when i connect one amp to my speakers it just hisses and crackles. this never happened before. when i turn up the gain to try and get...


The first amp, sounds like there is straight power going through the gain instead of it being limited. The second amp...hook the other subs up to it and see if it sounds ok. If so, then the subs are messed up. If it sounds the same, make sure the subs are connected correctly.

Crysler lhs, static buzzing noise in speakers when accellarating?


This is usually indicative of a ground loop causing noise from the vehicle electrical system. Long story short your stereo isn't grounded well enough.

There are two possible solutions:

1. Ground all components to the same point. This will reduce the potential and should greatly reduce any noise.

2. If number 1 is not possible (and it often is not), use a "ground loop isolator", available at nearly all electronics stores, or car audio suppliers. This device prevents a direct electrical connection between the two sources and will usually fix the ground loop.

Station 1450 has irregular noise when car is running; 1240=OK


Hello,

If the "static" you are getting is a high pitched whine and the noise volume increases and decreases with changes in engine speed, you probably have alternator induced radio noise.

Many times such noises are caused by poor ground connections that have begun to corrode over time. First try removing or loosening the screw or bolt which grounds the radio to the vehicle frame. Using a fine wire brush or a piece of steel wool, clean off both the terminal and the location on the vehicle where it was attached. Then reattach the ground. While you are behind the dash, make sure that the antenna connection is fully seated. Pull it out and put it back in again to make sure.

If these steps do not solve the problem, you may need to install noise supression devices. The are available at many retail locations like Radio Shack and some auto parts stores, as well as numerous online stores such as: http://www.crutchfield.com and http://www.sonicelectronix.com.
