Question about Jensen XS-1010 Car Subwoofer

1 Answer

Home theatre subwoofer

I have a Jensen sub with my home theatre system. It'll make random burst of bass even after the tv has been turned off or if it's gone a while without any music where it's needed. It drives me crazy. It's like a random giant burp.
Is there an adjustment on the sub itself or in the audio set-up to prevent this from happening? My product wasn't listed below.

Re: home theatre subwoofer

Sounds like you have a loose signal lead. Check to see if this cab be tightened if not replace the cable as this could be the cause of the problem. Over time the leads/plugs do loosen especially on subs as they vibrate so much. If it's not this then it's probably something internal to which I am reluctant to advise you on looking at yourself unless you are pretty proficient with electronics :P

I have a system installed and i have mtx speakers plus mtx subwoofers i want to know how could i take the bass of the speakers because it sounds horrible when loud

if you turn the bass setting in your radio down it will take the bass out, but may take some of the bass out of the subs as well, if this occurs and you still are not satified, you either have to get a car receiver with a non fading subwoofer preout, or you could get bass blockers for all the speakers you dont want the bass in

I have a Jensen KS212 and I'm connecting it to a home theatre receiver direct to see if it works but nothing comes out of it. Does this mean the sub is not working or there's not enough power from...

Hi, welcome to FixYa..

Your subwoofer requires a seperate amplifier that has low pass filter in the pre out system, which means it will allow all low frequency signals from the input section of the amplifier/ crossover. Your receiver has combined signals of high, mid and midbass signals that will not be able to drive your subwoofer. That is the main reason why some receivers has "Subwoofer Out" to allow you to use "Active Subwoofer systems" (also known has self powered or has a built in amplifier w/ subwoofer)
For you to use your Subwoofer, it must have a seperate amplifier, connect it to Sub out of your receiver and from there you can hear the difference. Hope this helps.

Need to hook up bass system to 1999 ford explorer can anyone assist me

Probably need an installer - depends on yr/make/model of car - stereo and wiring diagram for sub system. There are lots of questions need answering and if not installed properly, you can certainly damage the stereo, sub system. Subs use a lot of power and improper wiring could cause problems, even fires !

Low volume bass

You need to look got the amp for the sub if there is not one there is notting you can do. If there is one then just turn up the gain on the amp.
If not there are some times the gain is on the radio in a setting and the only way to find that is to look in the user manuil.
