Re: Car Audio Cutting Out

Stereo is detecting a short , or low load on speaker wire and or speakers .Go behind car stereo , disconnect all speakers and apply a known good speaker to one of four wires and see if volume works normally ..If it works use same speaker on all outputs one by one ..If all are okay then you should figure out what speaker and or wires are causing issue..Also make sure your ground is okay

How to fix a speaker

I assumes that the speaker of your car audio system has been burned out and posts this solution. Youcan buy the speaker cone paper along with it voice coil, ready to fit on, from any electonic spare part selling shops at your town. Never think that you can get the quality of sound as it was before. Because,there are so many calculations and fitting technique for making speakers. You can hear it. That is all. OK.

You could use any kind of silicon (white or black color). Also you could use Rubber Cement. Just apply it evenly & make sure you don't spill anything in your subwoofer's spider.

My subs sound choppy

Sounds like your sub is "clipping". Clipping is when your speaker is trying to pull more power than the power supply. (head unit, amp) If it sounds good at a low volume and choppy at high volume, supply it with more power. Bigger amp. If it sounds choppy all the time, push gently on the middle of the speaker. It should go back and forth smoothly. If it feels rough, you have blown the coil. Replacing the speaker is the fix for that.

What duz level adjustment do


The level control controls the input level coming from your head unit (receiver) to the amp.

Your Sony users manual is a little vague on how to best adjust the level and other controls.

Here is one method that some installers use and works well with most amps.

Most 10" subs sound best between about 80-100hz and below, so start out by setting the LPF at about 80hz. The HPF will not be used. Next turn the bass boost and gain all the way down. Turn on the radio and set all tone controls, bass, midrange, treble to flat, usually "0" on most head units. Turn the volume up to approximately 3/4 volume level or just until you begin to hear distortion. Now, back the volume down until the distortion is gone. Next turn up the gain control on the amp until you hear the subs start to distort then back the gain down until the distortion disappears. Next turn the bass boost up again until the subs begin to distort, then either back the bass boost down or back the gain down until the distortion is gone. You may need to play around with the bass boost and gain controls to get exactly the sound you prefer.

Hope this helps.
