Re: No Sound

Well, first thing you need to check is to see if the amplifier is going into protect mode(red light coomes on). also go through and check all your wiring with a test light(buy at autozone, oreillys, napa walmart, etc.) and see if its all right. (positive, ground, and remote) then check your rca with i dont think is possible so you might as well buy knew ones. if all that doesnt work then make sure all wires are hooked up to the speakers, take the apekers out of the box and check. if all fails then bring it to a car audio shop to let them take a look,

I have an alpine mrv-f307 4/3/2 channel. I have it hooked up to 2 12in Kenwood subs. Right now standard 2 channel each sub having their own. I heard doing a series hook up and bridging the subs to the amp ...

Bridging an amplifier refers to combining the power of two channels to run one speaker at higher power. If it is wired correctly, your amplifier is running with 4 channels bridged into 2 speakers now.

Are subfoofer ts-w308d2 and amplifier GM-5300T compatible with each other?

Yes. You will be able to run this setup with the sub bridged across both channels of the amp, which will give you more power (which the sub will be able to handle: 380 watts rms), or with the sub wired to a single channel, which will give you less power (125 watts rms). The sub can handle 400 watts rms.

My amp and subs work but the subs dont sound very loud. how do i adjust my Pyle PLA4340 amp and fix this problem

Hello polarisracin,

You need to bridge 2 of the amp channels to each 4 ohm sub to get the most power from the amp. Bridge channels 1/2 to one of the subs and channels 3/4 to the other one. But the amp is only rated for 75 watts RMS per channel and Pyle products are sometimes rated higher than their real capabilities. So, even bridged and with the rated output, you'll only be getting at most 150 watts from a pair of bridged channels. That's not much for a sub.

Hope this helps.

Random Protection mode.

Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty. Clipping means you have exceeded capacity. .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. random-protection-mode-lv2kkrmxrai4iihdvw4m3np2-1-0.jpg

Left speaker channel not working

you may have to send it in or back to the company... being that its one side it could be a blown amp or perhaps a bad speaker on that side ..

hooking up two 6x9s and a sub in bridge mode you could have a wiring problem when i bridge an amp i go from positive of one side and negitive on the other to the same positive and negitive on the sub or box

` bridge =========== > SUB

Bass sounds flat when volume is increased

probably your power is too short, increase your gauge wire, and your ground wire of the amplifier has to be shortly as possible, and the positive has to be enough to support peak power, you can also put a big capacitor on the positive wire to give some more power while the bass peak.
