Question about Kicker 02S10L74 Car Subwoofer

Subwoofer works at high volume, doesnt work at low volume

Just recently noticed that my sub only works when i turn the volume up pretty loud or i turn the bass up on my alpine deck higher than normal. When I listen to music at low volume levels, the sub doesn't seem to be working. Also as of today, I'm getting nothing out of the sub even at high volume. I checked all of the connections from sub to amp and so forth, but could it be something inside the sub box, or maybe is there a fuse out??? Thanks for your help.

    I have the same problem with my Alpine Deck. I have noticed that it starts working again when I go over a speed bump, or when I lightly press on the cone. I'm guessing it is something within the subwoofer. Anyone have a solution?

You had the settings set incorrectly and overdrove it. The voice coil leads are burn't open. If you look at the little flexible braids by the terminals I'll bet they are black/brown and maybe even burn't in half. It's toast.

Your volume control is not tracking properly. Might want to clean out the control chemically.

Check the surround on the subwoofer speaker. If it has self destructed the surround needs to be replaced.

Why aren't you looking at the sub for the reason? It may have the crossover set too high.

If the sub is loud enough during level setting, look at receiver settings, otherwise it's the sub amp.

Sound shuts off, sub still works


That is a common problem with this radio, for it can not go to loud without going down in volume or shutting down.

At high volume sound shuts off, subs still work


You most likely have a shorted or damaged speaker, which is causing the internal amp chip to shut down (but does not affect the preamp outputs). A test you can do is to fade to one speaker at a time and turn it up to se if it shuts down. Repeat with each speaker until you find the one that causes the fault. Then replace it.

If the sub has a volume control, turn it down then turn up the volume on the amp to the very high volume you mentioned. If it still has very low muffled sound, then we know the problem is about the amp.

Sounds like your original and this sub have bad amps. The amp for the sub is not the same as the amp for the other speakers. The old unit has a dead amp and this new one is on the way out. (Pulling too much current on high bass)
