My speaker wont put out sound

I just got two punches from my friend that i dont think have ever been used. one of them plays good but the other wont. if you turn the one that wont play upside down, something will knock in it. i cant figure out what is wrong with it. the speaker wont put out any sound at all.

The voice coil is blown off the cone. It's a goner.

I have a boss cx-3500 amplif & and a rockford p2 15 inch sub & not much punch what can i do to have more punch

mess around with the frequency on the amp till you get a good heavy loud sound and turn up the bass more and make sure the speaker cables are in the correct ports if one is in the other the wrong way around it wont give out as good quality or bass

I recently hooked up a new kenwood deck put new front and back speakers in. I hooked up a 1200 watt hifonics amp about to plug in my 2 15 inch rockford fosgate speakers rfz1412 and they dont play. All the...

Ok, so I am assuming that the other speakers are working, and it's just the subs that are not, right? If this is the case, start from the source. Make sure the RCA cables are plugged in and not crimped anywhere. Then to the amp, Did you check the gain levels on your amp. That is the knob next to the RCA input on the amp. Also, check the wiring to the subs. Make sure all your + are goinig to +. Sometimes in the "heat" of a good install, you just lose track of those things. When in doubt. Undo all your wiring and start from scratch. Good luck.

Fiona@jossi have a mazda 3mps with 6 disc changer 3 of the discs wont eject and it keeps saying check cd. discs wont play either. can anyone help please!!!

sounds like you are using discs you have burnt yourself

these discs are thicker than the ones you get in stores and frquently get stuck and dont work in units not built to handle these discs

it is very hard to get out without removing unit and opening it

you might be able to carefully grab or hook disc if it partially ejects but you risk damaging disc or unit you might need to bring it to repair shop

good luck

Base only comes out when I press on subs

my friend it sounds like you have a seperated voice coil, you can try to superglue the sub back to the voice coil, recone it, or just replace the whole sub.

Can you bridge the vega 124 or just use 1 channel on a punch 400x4

Good and bad news you can bridge the speaker it will make a 2 ohm load pretty hard on an amp but the Rockford can take it if you dont over drive it Bad news 400x4 will only go to 2 channels but should sound pretty good hope it helps

I put a cd that my friend made for me and the radio worked for reading i saw numbers but nithing was playing try to take it out and everything went blank now i just have a buzzing sound and cant do...

Assuming other CDs work, it sounds like your friend recorded the CD in the wrong format, probably digital format or your CD player cannot read the CDR. Not all CDRs can be read by all CD players regardless of what others may tell you.
Good Luck,

How do I wire my tape and cd player to same speakers?

There are really only 2 options.

#1 Buy a fm modulated CD changer. This will allow you to play CD's over a FM frequency, and will use your factory radio as the output.

#2 Again you can buy a stand alone FM modulator with RCA inputs, and use an aftermarket CD/DVD player as a source.

Subwoofer wont go off.....vibrates like mad

Sounds like a short circuit, check all connections and check that it will work as set up. Some will only work as a mono(i.e. you use 1 caannel not a combination of both) could also be a loose connection.Also if the head unit is off, the amp for the sub should be off. Is the amp wired to permanant live? If so this will cause this. Wire to electric aerial switch on head unit.( there will be a live wire and a switch wire on amp).

Subwoofers are working but aren't that loud.. help me!

not a bad set-up at all. i can help you i do need some more info though. what head unit do you have? what type of box is it just the normal rectangle box with or without divide sealed or is it ported? measure the size of the box and give me the dimensions please? how did you run the cables and how did you hook up between the deck and the amp? does the amp have built in crossover this could be problem just a little tuning? if it does make sure you selelct lpf mode and turn the hz knob all the way down ( counterclockwise) check the gain control should be another knob turn it clockwise all the way. you might need a little flat screwdriver to reach all these. is this amp bridgeable and if so are you running bridge mode ( 1 channel) if not look where you hook up the speaker and look and both channels and you will see a pos connect on 1 channel and neg connect on the other, put both neg wires on neg terminal and put both pos wires on pos terminal. in this set-up you will have full raw power. let me know about this and i will help you the most i can. good luck and happy booming.

Jensen vm9411 has no sound from radio hookups put rca wires have sound

If the previous radio played all the speakers and the new one wont either:
1. You have not hooked the speakers up right.
2. All your speakers are blown.
3. There is a factory amp, you just don't know about it.
4. The radio has blown final outputs.
5. One or more speakers or speaker wires is seeing a ground (shorted out)

First check the radio, hook up a know good test speaker directly to the speaker outputs on the radio. If it works, then take a 9volt battery and try to pop the inside speakers with it. When you touch the + & - speaker wires to the battery + &- you should hear a pop at the speaker. If you do you don't have an amp. If you don't you might have an amp or the wire going to the speaker is dead or shorted out. It is unlikely that all four speakers would be bad or have bad wires. If none of them will pop you need to turn on the factory amp. Then they will play. If only one speaker wont pop then that is the bad speaker. If they all pop then you have a bad speaker or wire.
