You could have a bad remote wire running to the amp or a bad remote circuit in your head unit, try connecting a small wire to the remote and jumper it to the power wire on the amp if this turns on the bass simply wire in a toggle switch and turn it off when you turn the car off so you dont drain the battery

if you have your front and centers set to 'small' you want your Bass out to be subwoofer only, and the rca jack labeled 'sub out' is the only place to connect your sub to if you want to control the frequencies with your reciever. I dont know the brand of your sub, or the inputs on the back of it to advise you where to connect, but it sounds like it worked for you at one time, but suddenly it does not
We used to use what we call bass blocker capacitors on the component speakers to block the bass coming from the head unit and to allow the bass to only come from the subs...there is several values of these capacitors that you can use(different values correlate to different frequencies). These type of capacitors are available at Radio Shack. You will need to request a NON-POLARIZED Electrolytic capacitor at a voltage rating of not less than 25 Volts...As for the value of the microfarad rating..you may need to experiment with different microfarad values to get the sound you desire...standard microfarad values are 1uF, 2.2uF, 3.3uF, 4.7uF, 10uF, 22 uF, 33uF, 47uF.
You probably won't need to go any higher on the value than those listed....in my experience, I have found the 4.7uF and 10uF to be good for most speakers...to install these...you need to put one inline with the positive lead to each component speaker.
It sounds like the installer wired the amp remote turn-on terminal to an "accessory" lead in your vehicle. Many stock radios do not have a dedicated amp turn-or lead and the alternative is to connect the amp to a switched power source (ignition or accessory). This means the amp turns on whenever you turn on the vehicle ignition, often resulting in a thumping from the subs. It is a perfectly satisfactory alternative, and will not damage either the amp or the sub. But it's irritating.
If the thumping is objectionable, have your installer wire a SPST (Single Pole, Single Throw) toggle switch inline with the turn-on wire. The switch should be mounted so it is accessible by the driver, and whenever you turn on the radio, turn on the toggle switch.
i had the same problem a few times, they are pretty picky receivers.
first take a look in your settings and make sure none of your speakers are set on large, if they are they automatically shut off the woofer,
2, try the adjust option and crank the bass and throw on the bass boost
3. manually turn the woofer on through the receiver itself
4. try and turn up the woofer itself if is powered
5. try hooking the woofer up to the secondary speaker jacks by bridging it, (positive on left and negative on right for even power)
if none of these options work then the woofer itself may be defective even though it lights up
So when you aren't using the sub woofer there's not enough bass, so you need more out of the other speakers. Chances are the front speakers are set to "small" in the receivers menu, change it to "large"if your front speakers have a 6 inch woofer or larger. Note: If you leave the sub on, the input signal to it will be greatly reduced when the speakers are set to "large". Hope this helps.
alot of times its not just the amp that gives you better sounding bass.. A lot has a to do with a few other factors as well.. first off your subwoofer.. the bigger the subwoofer the deeper the bass. Some woofers exturde, or flex differently depending on the quality and structure of the woofer.. 2nd is gonna be the sub box. different size boxes will give your sub diff. depths of bass. ... general idea is the bigger the box deeper the bass. But if your woofer is not supplied enough power a big box is useless.
With that size amp your best bet is too run a single woofer. Probably a 10inch woofer would sound the best.. but it in.75cub inch. sealed box.. should sound great.
hard to tell whats causing this .Just curious make sure speaker wires going to subs are POLARIZED meaning positive from amp is with positive at woofer and NEGATIVE is with negative at woofer.When these are crossed and when volume is raised you will hear the bass cancell each other out..
No there are no adjustments to that model as far as I know thats why they call them sub woofers my nephews would break their hearts getting at one of those and they would have the bass full bore...hahaha!
