Rampage BA-100 200W amplified 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.

Re: Rampage BA-100 200W amplified subwoofer

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 $.

Amplifier when i plug the rca cables from the radio to amp the subwoofer is jumping and going out of control with no music playing

Make sure the amplifier is properly grounded. If the ground is good, hook an ipod up to the rca's to test.

If the problem goes away, you may have a problem with the headunit. If the problem remains there may be something wrong with the amp.

Hi i have just bought a alpine dvd headunit the 105r and it only has 1 phono sub output and not the left and right phono output how do i connect my amp to this

it has 3 pairs of rca outputs, one pair for the front, one for the rear, and another for the subwoofer. the other sub preamp output is not needed to run to your amplifier.

For better sound quality, buy an RCA Y splitter cable (single male connection to double female connections), and run your regular pair of rca cables to the amp.

Where do i plug my rca jacks into to go to a subwoofer?swl swr,fl fr,or lin rin?

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Either of the SWL or SWR or better yet join the SWL + SWR if the subwoofer has only a single RCA jack for the input by using an RCA combiner.


Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

When I am listening to my stereo in my truck with a pioneer headunit and a rockford fosgate p1 10" subwoofer. I listen to music and part of the song will hit hard then it will weaken dramatically. What is...

Your amplifier is going into protect mode.
It may already be damaged from repeated abuse.
The subwoofer is either bottoming out... has a blown or damaged coil... or your charging system is not adequate to keep your batter charged above 8VDC.

You need an amplifier with Hi level inputs - or a line level convertor (hi to low)
This converts the signal going to a factory speaker into RCA output the amplifier can use to amplify the sound.
