Take the car to Pepboys and have the codes read, they will tell you what your problem is and get you the parts to fix it yourself or they will do it for you, don't keep fixing untill you find out what it's not. Most likely it's your alternator or bad ground.

Hi i just got 2 new infinity 860w reference 8'' subs 250 rms each and pushing it with sony 600watt amp pushing it but very low sound and no bass why the othier speakers i have in 10'' hit the bass fine but...


The amp may no thav eenough to push these subs, these are top of the line subs, they probably require a bigger amp, if you are running other speakers through this also, you certainly need another amp, or a bigger one with more channels. also double check all your wiring.

also what ive seen happen before is the speakers (if mounted in metal shelf or door and arnt bolted down correctly can flex under bass notes and flex the speaker that much the termanls short onto the metal and amp hits protect mode
(rare but worth a look if you think u have elimanted most other things Had a dude come to me when i was working in sydney with this problem )

also could be things like clipping protection , overheat protection ,amp drawing to much current from the alternator

do your lights dim when you hit the bass notes ?

Makes head lights dim wen bass hits.


You need to install someting called a power cap. the amp needs so much power to produce the big bass thump that the alternator cant keep up. Use a powercap and its like a power reserve.

Amp doesn't come on


Hello rheabarb,

You did not say whether or not you checked the wiring going to your subs. Many times, a shorted or grounded speaker wire will cause an amp to fail. And if the amp powers up OK with the subs disconnected, I'd suspect one or more of the wires.

Hope this helps.

What duz level adjustment do


Hello,

The level control controls the input level coming from your head unit (receiver) to the amp.

Your Sony users manual is a little vague on how to best adjust the level and other controls.

Here is one method that some installers use and works well with most amps.

Most 10" subs sound best between about 80-100hz and below, so start out by setting the LPF at about 80hz. The HPF will not be used. Next turn the bass boost and gain all the way down. Turn on the radio and set all tone controls, bass, midrange, treble to flat, usually "0" on most head units. Turn the volume up to approximately 3/4 volume level or just until you begin to hear distortion. Now, back the volume down until the distortion is gone. Next turn up the gain control on the amp until you hear the subs start to distort then back the gain down until the distortion disappears. Next turn the bass boost up again until the subs begin to distort, then either back the bass boost down or back the gain down until the distortion is gone. You may need to play around with the bass boost and gain controls to get exactly the sound you prefer.

Hope this helps.

Car sound system. only sub is giving off sound. other 4 speakers dont work at all


Could be bad outputs from the back of your head unit or also could be bad rca cables. Make sure the amp is on and powered.

Amp and sub bass playing through all speakers


You need to go into the setup menu and find out if the radio has a sub low-pass filter that redirects the bass to the pre-out for the subs, and away from the main speakers. Fiddle in the audio menu.
