Why doesnt my subs play music through my amplifier all the wires are hooked up
Make sure that your amp is getting power. This means check the ground wire and make sure it is solidly connected to the vehicle chassis in a paint-free location. Also make sure that the live power wire from the battery is connected properly, and that the in-line fuse is not blown. Make sure the power wire is a large enough gauge to supply the required power to the amp. You will probably need at least a 6 gauge wire. Also check the input leads from the head unit. These are the RCA cables and the remote wire. The connection must be good at both the amp and the head unit. Then check the speaker leads and confirm they are connected to the proper inputs on the amp (the user manual will tell you which inputs to connect these to). Finally, make sure the amp is not in protect mode. There will usually be a light on the amp that indicates if it is in protect mode or not. If it is, consult the user manual to decode why it is in protect mode. If you do all of this and it still doesn't work, it is possible that your amp is broken and you will have to get a new one.
