Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

I have a 2600 watt Power Acoustik Gothic Amplifier and two 12 inch MTX 7500 superwoofers. When I go to hook up both the subwoofers, it seems like the subs won't work as well, but when I only hook up one sub, it works just fine. I have no clue what to do. I have 4 AWG wiring. Someone told me it might be because the wiring isn't big enough, but I have no clue and I am getting so annoyed. Help please!

Look at the speakers, is one jumping out and the other drawing in? If so try this. Hook one speaker up normally, reverse the polarity on th other. Hook it opposite how you hooked the other up. This won't hurt a thing but it may cure the problem. Sometimes the amps get wired up backwards inside. I know for a fact that fosgate does cause mine was.

You have a case of a blown sub. You will need a recone kit. You ca send it in to a company like fix my speaker or google recone kits for Power Acoustik FUBAR. May be cheaper just to get another sub.

Hi,


Most fan cooled amplifiers would be fine on its side provided the flow of air is not impeded. Unless it's been modified the probability of a wire falling into the blades is pretty small. Where you may want to be concerned is if it's a convection cooled amplifier which would depend heat rising away from heat producing components and their heat sinks. Placing this type of amp on its side could reduce the efficiency of its cooling capabilities possibly causing it to thermally shut down and/or shorten its lifespan.


Please accept the solution if it's helpful. Do get back to us for any further query.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com

I have 2 15 inch mofos do i need two poweracoustik 4000D AMPS?


You want an amplifier that is rated for the subwoofers. In your case your subwoofers are rated at 1500 watts rms each, so you will need an amplifier of 1500 watts rms or more for one subwoofer. good luck

Amp Not working!


If the amp goes into protect mode, it's likely due to shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible problems, read through the following page:

Amp in Protect Mode - Troubleshooting

If the problems are not with the wiring, follow the link at the bottom of the page to the Amplifier Repair Primer page.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
