Hello empsglen,

If the sub voice coil is open, you will get exactly no sound. No crackling, nothing.

Use a multimeter to check the sub voice coil. If the meter reads infinity, the coil is open and to the amp, it's as if there's no sub connected, and you will need to replace it.

Hope this helps.

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

Ive got a kenwood kvt-512 n im tryin to hook an amp n subs up but dnt know where to plug my RCA jacks from the amp 2 the radio!


Your unit should have 2 plugs in the back...one for the audio and power wires to connect to your factory connections and the other plug is just RCA connections for your video, subs and front speakers. If you have a 4 channel amp and a amp for your subs, you will have to split the 4 channel amp down to 2 and run them to your front RCA connections. Subs will connect to the sub connections. If yours are not listed then you may have to track down a wiring diagram. Hope this helps.

I just bought two rockford fosgate t1 twelves duel voice coil 4ohm I'm running a old school alpine v12 1507 mrv 2channel. I want to bridge the amp to get the most out of these subs would it be better...


Hi there,
This amp should run comfortable at 2 ohms/channel. However, your dual voice coil subs are rated at 4 ohms. This means when you connect the 2 voice coils together in parellel (positive to positive and negative to negative both coils wired to one output) the amp will see 2 ohms. So if you connect both subs to one output then your amp will see 1 ohm (not good) If you run the voice coils in parellel but the subs in series then the 2 resistances (ohms) will be added together. So that way the amp will se 4 ohms. This is fine but the amp would push more power into 2 ohms. You can run one sub on each channel if you can split the head unit output to 2 outputs, problem is then you will be halving the amount of power to each channel. Personally I would probably be more inclined to run 1 sub on this amp and run another amp from the pre-outs on the first amp for the 2nd sub. Try to find another amp the same to run the second sub. Mind you, 2 of these amps will need some big power cable to run them but should shake your teeth out!
Hope this helps

I have phase linear uv8, need to know how to get subs 2 work! Amp goes into protect mode when rca's r plugged in, there r 3 sets of preamp out puts 1 front left and front right, 2nd is rear left rear...


try testing the amp without speakers plugged in. Run the sub preamp out to the amp that you will drive the subs with, but don't wire up the subs yet. Test for protect mode kicking in.
Yes - unplug the rca ins from the amp. retest.
No - Problem lies within the sub wiring. What is the load on the amp (measure with an ohm meter)? If it is below 4ohms, chances are the amp can't dip that low. Give it more resistance by wiring it differently (series vs. parallel)

Alpine type-r 2ohm dual voice coil help


try reconnecting your rca's from the deck to the amp when finished wire one speaker positive to positive on left channel and negative to negative on right channel then connect the 1st subwoofer. if all power and sound is fine and working turn off power to amp and connect negative terminal of 1st sub to positive on 2nd sub and positive from first sub to negative on second crossing the wires runs the speakers in series another way to try is parralel the speakers wiring by connecting positive left channel output of amp to positive on 1st sub same with the negative then splice positive to positive on second sub and same with negative.

Kickers dont beat like they should


try to check and clean the wiring as clean as possible to avoid messing up on your connection. Check the polarity of you subs to yuor amp if you have it connected on the outher way around it would not give you a good result. check the polarity this will solve your problem. Over powering your sub will fry it easily try to tune it a 10" sub wont give you a 15" performance..

Subs dont beat like they should


you've spent alot of money on **** by the sounds of it!!. you should only ever run multiple subs the same brand, power and resistance you can just connect any old subs to a system you need to wire them depending on the load that the amp needs to see. first thing is to try the amp/s on a individual sub to check your amps still work once done check the subs 1 by 1.
