Make sure all your gains are turned up to atleast half.
Check your head unit, make sure your low pass frequency for the RCA's amp is set to high or set to more than 0. Make sure you don't have your fader set toward the front of the vehicle or you won't get any bass, but the subwoofer will be pulling only what the head unit is sending to the amplifier.
if that doesn't work I would try another pair of patch cables.
Do you have another subwoofer you can swap out to test your subwoofer with?
I have a subwoofer that has something wrong with the coil itself. Has your amplifier blown any fuses? If so the subwoofer coil is bad.
Also make sure you have a solid ground for your amplifier.
Hope this helps!

I have a bose accoustimass 3 i'v connected it to both rear and main outs but still the sub sounds muffled very very quiet and no low base at all if it was blown surely there would be no sound the


The sub amplifier could be damaged even if you still hear sound. Electronics components don't always blow completly, sometimes it sill works a little bit and then it's harder to find the source of the problem. Make sure your audio source is good and if it is the amp might be damaged.

I have 2 l7 kicker with a 2000 watt amp not really a good brand though..sometimes the subs work perfekt but sometimes they dnt work as the way they suppose to sound they sound really weak n when im driving...


OK-3 issues here but you already know one lol-you bought a substandard amp for some bad *** power hungry subs---thats your first issue :)

Check the ground for the AMP it shouldn't be any longer than 12" from the amp to its grounding point-Any longer than that and several issues can happen, like poor power to the amp, feedback (winding noise over the speakers, usually changes pitch or frequency with the engines rpm's), intermitant substandard sound (your experiancing this) and coil bounce (your subs move in and out producing little to no sound, you are experiancing this as well)

The same issues can come from the amp not having enough constant power to sustain the subs when they hit repeditivly, to fix this you need to buy a cap and add it to your system- A cap quickly charges using the battery, and supplies the extra umph your amp needs so it can push the subs without starving itself. With the subs you have I recommend a 1.5 to 3 fared capasator

Ok I just bought a used fosgate amp belive its a T10001b could be wrong its big has fan 3 led lights and some pioneer premier 10 flat subs think there 4ohm. I bought a brand new amp install kit 6gauge...


eyp, most of the time speaker connections blow and fuses wont stop that from happening. They are there to stop the mainboard from frying and not working at all. try running rca splitters to the operational side of the amp. run the sub on 1 channel. you will start hearing a difference but both sides will work. if not, run the splitters from the head unit and bridging it. these are the cheapest solution i could provide

Install subs on back doors on a 95 suburban


Install Dynamat. That should stop the rattling and distortion. the distortion is from the door vibrating the sound waves and messing the sound molecules up before they reach your ears. stopping the vibration should stop the distortion.

High wattage car stereo


positive (1 guage) from main battery to second battery positive terminal. hook all amps positive to second battery and hook 2nd battery ground to frame of car (where amp is now grounded) if you have a 2nd battery a cap is a waste of money. make sure all grounds (battery and amps) are together on same ground point of car, do not ground amps to battery - ground everything to 1 spot on the frame or body of the car ! - yes you can pigtail remote leads.

Diferent sound


The entire difference may be due to the vehicle.

He could check things like the B+ reaching the amps when driven hard. It should remain well above 12v. If it's dropping below 12v, that could be part of the problem.

He also needs to check to make sure that all woofers are in phase. If he has one woofer connected improperly, it would only be approximately as loud as one woofer because one would be cancelling another out.

Audio system makes extra noises... pops


Check all the wiring. It could be a loose connection since it's intermitent. Really pay attention to the power cable, both the end for the amp and the one that's going to the battery cable.
