Question about Rockford Fosgate (P210D4) Car Subwoofer

3 Answers

Speaker Failure I have just fitted two JBL GTO 627 6.5" speakers into my k reg Honda CRX. When you turn on the sterio (sony explod) the two speakers bleep and make a kind of shorting noise and turn themselves off and a message saying 'failure' on the sterio comes up. Could this be to do with the magnet of the speaker touching the metal of the car as they are deeper than the original speakers? The orginal speakers frames are metal so I have taped over the frames to ensure no speakers terminals or wires are touching the metal frame, but this makes no difference. If you take the speakers out of the mounting, they working perfectly. Any ideas? I'm stuck, speakers are usually simple fit, four screws and two wires, not usually a problem.

I hook the speakers up to an amp and it does not work I need to know if I can sent it in to you to get fixed or send in for some refund on a new one. Or can I fix this problem myself, it is a 12 inch sub and it has no sound coming from it and I don't think it is blown. The sub (speaker) is an MX autotek and it is very heavy for a 12inch sub.

Search for a short to chassis when you mount the speaker,there's no problem if the magnet touch the chassis. you can test the cables with a multimeter.check if the tiny flexible cables on the speaker touch metal when is in movement. (on sound).

Can i connect spekers to tv without any sterio sisteem

Most of the Sony TVs have a sound output less that 4W or so. If you connect an external speaker directly, sthe speaker shoud match both in impedence and watts, to the internal speaker fitted inside the tv, otherwise the audio output ic inside the tv can get damaged.
You can connect the earphone output of the tv, if any provided on your tv, to the aux; input of your stereo. There is no trouble.

I have a JBL GTO 7001, it switches in an out of protection mode. i pulled out the amp, an noticed that the positive wire from the speaker was pulled out. so i disconnected the power scorce an reconnected...

Make sure that your positives and negatives are lined up correctly. This happened to me during my latest install and the problem was I had one positive speaker wire plugged into a negative speaker terminal. This switches the amp on after a few seconds and then back to protect mode once it detects a faulty speaker wire. Hope this helps!

Amp is putting itself in protection mode.

I would check to see if you have a secure ground and check all of your connections for shorts.

An active crossover is needed if you plan to do a 2.1 or 4.1 or 5.1 setup.
Check if you have a subwoofer output from your head unit (most later models have). If there is, you might not need an active crossover anymore, but it depends on how you like the sound quality of the separations (low, mid, high). Please note the speaker polarities too.

Speaker Failure

If your receiver's ground wire isn't connected probably your going to cause a chain of small short circuits that will continue to arise. The head unit needs to be properly wired and installed. It is a possibility that you may have a problem with the speakers building a magnetic force onto the steel frame of your speaker mounts, causing it to give you the "faliure beep and message" and the cd player takes action in cutting off the source of problem. I would remove your head unit, if you are unable to do so bring your car to a a local service tec, and have it removed, but watch carefully so you know how to do it next time. And once out, trace all your wires to each other and assure a contact is made. The ground is easy, If its fair sizes wire in length and it isn't connected. Look for a mounting screw inside of your dash, preferably one running to your metal dash itself. If you cant find one, you can always mount the same screws your cd player mounts onto. BUT look for a stand alone spot for it to screw in for insurance that its not gong to come loose.
Good luck and ask more questions so i can further assist you.

JBL Sub Amp Wiring Please

it seems rather redundant to bridge a mono amp. Unless the instruction manual states otherwise, i would assume that one speaker output is identical to the other (ran in parallel, like an A or B speaker, not like Left or Right), and you would present the amp with a two ohm load by wiring one speaker to each output. Bridging it may or may not work, but, again, it just seems redundant.

It's a mono amp. There's no bridging with this amp.

The two pairs of speaker terminals are connected together internally. The second set of terminals is for convenience.
