Question about Eclipse SW8102.4 Car Subwoofer

1 Answer

Brand new sub deied 5 minutes after fitting

I brought a 12" mutant x 1205 sub 2day wired it in ( which iv done plenty of times b4). It was working fine then just stopped. On inspection the protect light on the amp was on and the sub cone was rock hard. Then i took the sub out of the box and there was plenty of smoke. Now i realise that the sub is obviously fried i'm just miffed as to what has caused this as i just shelled out for a brand new sub 5 mins down the road and its knackerd.
I wired everythink correctly i am certain. When i disconnect the sub from the amp and restart the car the green light on the amp stays on so i think the amp is o.k but i'm not to sure.
all help greatfully received.
cheers Mark.

Maybe u had ur crossover set to full on the amp. Check it bcause, if you have to many high frequencies sent to any subs at a high level u can seize them in minits.

How do you reprogram start duration for a longer time


You do realize that there are multiple remote starter manufacturers and, that these multiple manufacturers have different programming methods. However, the 12 minute run time is a default run time for Directed Electronics (Viper, Python, Clifford, Avital, etc) but, that does not mean that it is a DEI product. If it is a DEI product and you wish to change your runtime to 20 minutes, it can only be done with a BITWRITER. The installer should have this. The runtime settings that are optional without the bitwriter are 12, 24 and, 60 minutes for the more expensive units.

MEX-BT5700U, no sound in speakers in CD source, tuner source OK.


What many people do on this model is connect the remotes wires improperly. Use the solid blue wire for the amp and the blue with white stripe for the connection to the car.

You would be better served to go to a local shop and get the correct fittings to fit the connections, and use those to connect your subs. Just running the wire tips will result in loosed connections and plenty of headaches..

Compatible amp for subs


hi there. yes it should work providing you have the correct wiring it for it, if you buy the LV 416 enquire about a wiring kit to fit, most will. theyre normally around 20pounds. most amps will be compatible with most subs. i run both my 12inch 1000w off one 1200amp at half power, they kick lovely and i have no problems.


any other quiries please ask

Amp Will Not Stop Overheating


You say you have 2 p312d2 subs. Ok so the d2 stands for dual 2homs (2 X 2homs voice coils per sub) , conecting in parallel the 2 voice coils of only one sub will create 1hom load to the amp, and if your amp is 2homs stable per chanel that means you are lowering too much your homs causing the overhwating to it.
