Question about Audiovox BA100 Car Subwoofer
Hi, I have one of the above subwoofers. My headunit has preouts for a
subwoofer, (RCA jacks) plus the spkr. preouts. I'm powering my spkrs
with a 2 channel 800W amp. If I connect the RCA jacks from the head
unit sub preouts, to the - and+ on the subwoofer, and run 12V power
from the battery, and a ground, shouldn't I have sound from the sub?
The directions say to splice your - and + from your spkrs, to your sub.
Is this the only way this will work? I can control the frequencies from
the head unit. I would like to control the sub from there also.
Actually. I don't think you have to wire a remote switch from the radio to the amp on this product. This powered subwoofer supposedly has automatic signal sensing turn-on circuitry. I have the same problem. So I think I'll try to just hook up the power (to the battery), ground and the + / - speaker wires to one of the back speakers in the car and see if that works.

Choycemoon, that will work, that's how I did mine. I can control the
Low frequency, and the Bass from my headunit, which kicks **** bigtime.
You don't need a remote switch, to turn on anything. Everything will
power up when the key is turned on, and shuts off when it's turned off.
Hook it up just like you said, and it will work fine. Once you get it
hooked up, and hear it, just for grins, diconnect one of the sub wires,
and hear how bad your speakers sound. That little sub kicks ***! Can't
beat it for the $.
