How do you know it's not the amp?  Have you tried hooking up good speakers to the same output terminals of the amp?

Speaker failure modes: Usually they fry, the foam surround disintegrates, or there's a bad internal wire connection/solder joint that fails. Subwoofers are designed to handle a lot of power and rarely fail.

There are three possibilities: 
1) The signal isn't getting to the amp from the crossover.
2) The amp is toast.
3) The speakers are bad. 

You don't tell me whether you have a separate amp for the subs with an external crossover, or whether you have one amp with internal crossover and separate internal amps and speakers outputs for subs and standard speakers, so I can't be more specific.

What you can do is:

Check all external connections, including the power connections.

Try substituting replacements for the patch (signal) cables to see if you have a bad cable.

Beyond this, it's pretty much up to a repair technician.

The amp needs to "see" a load and if the new sub is incorrect the the amp will sense improper amps and will shut down, a protective circuit. Load the amp with the correct speaker....

KAC-9102d no sound, Amp powers on but no sound to the subs.


If the sub isn't working, you won't get a pop. All you need is a small speaker. Don't need a sub, you just want to test the sound. I recently blew 2 subs, no smoke, no smell, no sign of being blown. Absolutely nothing from the subs.... In the past my sub locked up. You can take your sub out of the box and hook the + and - to the battery to see if you can get the sub to pop there. I believe a small box will push a sub into a deep excursion to the center of the cone. I have 2 lanzar VW12D's that just quit. I hooked a 6 x 9 up to my amp and low and behold I had sound! Try that and see what you get...

Infinity PS-10 quit working


I think the electronics have a 3 years warranty and the drivers have a five years warranty for this product, maybe you can have it replaced. Maybe the auto on/off signal detector is the culprit.

Sub quit working, where do I find new board/amp/crossover panel


I have the same problem with mine and since Acoustic Research went out of business, I too have been looking for a solution. I may have found an alternative to throwing away this really nice speaker. I found a company on the web that appears to sell an amp that may fit nicely into this speaker enclosure for $99.00. Check it out...http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?DID=7&PartNumber=300-805

UPDATE Feb-16-2016: This Amp is still going strong since 2012 when I replaced it. The price has gone up to 139.00, but may still be worth it to replace a bad one given the cost of Sub's today.

Amplifier problems!!!


it sounds like your running your ohms to low, check to see what the amp can power and then read up online about ohms and your subs and how they should be wired
