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.

Re: Brand new sub deied 5 minutes after fitting

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 I bridge a sub 12 Kenwood kfc-w3003

old school huh? Well those Kenwood subs are single voice coil so you can't bridge them to themselves like you can do with dual voice coil models. however, if you have two or more the speakers can be bridged to each other. You can wire them either in series or parallel. If you need instructions on how to do this just Google wiring two single voice coil subwoofers/speakers. There are plenty of detailed illustrations available on the web.

Hi Ive brought a Sony 2dx-gt590ui and sub and amp got it all wired up but the sub only works on radio can you tell me what Ive done wrong???

You can try to connect the remote power wire at amplifier to main power with a jumper wire if sub works with cd and other sources.Then check remote wire from behind radio or you can simply connect remote power wire to a another switched power source from fuse panel.Just make sure its a clean dedicated power source from fuse box and make sure it turns off amp..Goodluck

Custom install of pyle red label sub

Start here:

Go to the "How to Make a Sub Box Mold Thread" and look over some of the photos.

Building a trunk box for a single sub is a great first project and depending on the time and attention to detail that you put into it, the results can be really fantastic.

Also take a look at the "Tools of the trade" thread. There's tons of good information and ideas on the fiberglass forum, including sources for materials step-by-step photo logs of various projects.

Hope this helps and that you enjoy your new DIY sub enclosure.

Good Luck!

5 stage band pass sub box, 1 sub stolen, box built to spec subs

I would try walling it up unless you are going to buy 2 brand new subs. the problem is the older power subs had such small magnets so they needed alot less air space inside the box. Unless you can find the EXACT subs this box was made for I would recommend chopping it and doing a single sub. if you try a replacement sub go with the 12" P1 series they are a close match for the power 12's of the past.

Sub installation

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..
