Hi Jimmy:
Most vehicle stereo systems speakers have two wires and are connected to the stereo. The stereo is grounded to the vehicle, but the speaker leads are connected to the stereo.

Assuming that your car is a negative grounded car, it should not make any difference in the power supply if the metal is galvanised, zinc conducts electric the same. As long as the ground connection is good, it should work fine.

SOURCE: Subwoofers won't work and they are brand new

Hello,

I've got a pair of these MTX's subs powered from a Fusion 450 watt 2-channel amp. For the price, they are great. By the way, they are 4-ohm.

My first suspicion would be that something in the first incorrect wiring damaged either the amp or the subs. Can you explain specifically what the "installing the subs incorrectly" means? Was the amp output shorted out at any time or was it operated without a load? Either of these conditions will fry an amp and sometimes, the protection circuitry doesn't work either.

First make sure that your amp is still working. Check both the primary power fuse, usually located near the vehicle battery, and the fuses on both sides of the amp. Make sure that when you turn the system on, the power light comes on steady (blinking is protection mode). Test your subs one at a time on a speaker output.

SOURCE: SUBWOOFER NOT WORKING?

I would say that you blew a capasitor on the out take of the amp. All the green light means on the amp is that you are getting power to it, not that it is working properly. If this is the problem it is because you probally tried to bridge a non bridgeable amp. This problem occurs when an amp is not ready to take the 1 or 2 Ohms that come back through it and it blows this little ***** capasitor inside rather than frying the amp, again if this is the case you should be able to open it up and see the one that you have blow. If this is the case get a sodering gun and take the capasitor out, but make sure you mark the - side so that you will know which side to put where (it will be the side with a  different color line on it). after that take the piece out to a radio shack or another electronics store and tell them you need that exact piece. After that just soder it back in and see if it works, if it does great if not ..... it is like a $1 part and you can't break something that is already broke. oh and if it does work .... don't bridge it again XD

Hope that helps :)

A FACTORY INSTALLED AMP/SUB WILL BE WIRED INTO THE VEHICLES FACTORY WIRING JUST AS ANY OTHER COMPONENT. YOU WOULD THINK THAT YOU WOULD FIND THICK POWER AND GROUND CABLES ALONG WITH RCA CONNECTIONS AS YOU FIND WITH MOST INSTALLS.NOT THE CASE HERE.YOU MUST FIND THE HARNESS THAT HAS THE POWER AND GROUND CONNECTIONS ALONG WITH THE INPUT WIRES FOR SOUND. YOU MUST OBTAIN A VEHICLE SPECIFIC WIRING DIAGRAM THAT HAS THE WIRING FOR THE SOUND SYSTEM PACKAGE THAT CAME WITH YOUR VEHICLE. YOU MUST THEN WIRE IN THE BLUE REMOTE TURN ON LEAD FROM YOUR UNIT TO TURN THE AMP AND SUB ON WITH YOUR RADIO AND NOT YOUR CAR BATTERY. YOU WILL ALSO NEED TO FEED SOUND TO THE AMP USING ONE OF THE REAR OUTPUTS FROM YOUR RADIO.

Where is the ground wire bolted to on a 2004 Lincoln Town Car


Hi Jimmy:
Ted again...
The ground wire that is connected to the stereo is to be attached to a common ground or to the frame.

I hear noise coming from my 10'' Alpine subwoofers while my car is running


  • You have a ground loop coming off the amp. Make sure it is grounded solid and use connectors not just bolting the wire itself. Use sand paper and sand all the ground points well to make the best connection.Ground the amp to the frame well. Your hearing the alternator in your sub. Make sure to use the same size copper strand gauge wire as the power wire. Make sure the head unit is grounded well too.

This is most likely an amplified factory system. These usually dont' work with aftermarket radios as they use a common ground for the amps in the speakers. Unless you get a specific wiring harness for this system, your best bet is to install new speakers and wiring all around.

Rewire your stereo cables as such:

Red- positive - battery
Black - ground - chassis
Remote (Yellow) - ignition switch

The "LINE OUT" should go to your SUB-WOOFER.

The while-lined wires paired with the solid colored wires are either your Front LR and/or Rear L/R.

Speaker removal


Good day,
In your trunk there are 2 small amps. The first amp is connected to your car speakers. The second amp is connected to your subwoofer. Once you locate the subwoofer amp. Your subwoofer amp will be the amp close to the sub enclosure. Unplug the subwoofer from the amp. Your next step is to unscrew the 4 10mm bolts so that you can remove the sub enclosure. At this point you can now remove the enclosure. It will take a some time as it always seems to be up there pretty good. But once it starts to move it should come out with little work. I hope this helps with your removal of the subwoofer.

How do i wire mtx 9500 subs 2 10'' down to a one ohm


THE T9510-04 SUBS ARE SINGLE COIL SUBS AND YOU CAN VIEW THAT WIRING DIAGRAM AT THE FOLLOWING LINK:
http://www.mtx.com/caraudio/products/subwoofers/TechData_T9510-04.pdf

THE T9510-44 SUBS ARE DUAL VOICE-COIL SUBS AND YOU CAN VIEW THAT WIRING DIAGRAM AT THE FOLLOWING LINK:
http://www.mtx.com/caraudio/products/subwoofers/TechData_T9510-44.pdf

SINCE YOU NEED A 1 OHM LOAD, I PRESUME BRIDGED AND ARE USING TWO SUBS, THEN HOPEFULLY YOU HAVE THE DUAL VOICE COIL TYPE, AS THEY ARE DUAL 4 OHM AND YOU WILL HAVE TO CONNECT THE VOICE-COILS IN PARALLEL WHICH WILL MAKE EACH SPEAKER A 2 OHM SPEAKER AND THEN CONNECT THE TWO SPEAKERS THEMSELVES IN PARALLEL AND THIS WILL PROVIDE YOU THE 1 OHM LOAD. IF YOU IN FACT HAVE THE SINGLE 4 OHM VOICE COIL VERSION, THEN IT WILL ONLY PARALLEL THE PAIR DOWN TO 2 OHMS. OK. LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED FURTHER ASSISTANCE.....V
