Question about Bazooka EL1204 Car Subwoofer

1 Answer

Stops working for some reason, it just started today. I was leaving a store, turned on my truck, and started playing the subs, within about 3 seconds, they stopped working. the subs randomely stop, and randomely turn back on, but however, when they turn back on, once the volume gets to a certain point( and nothing that is too loud, i mean the volume is actually fairly low) the subs will quit, and randomely turn back on at a later time, once again though, when i raise the volume on my head unit, the subs disapeer. I checked the wires, power is fine, remote is fine, and ground looks good, does anyone know wat this problem could be from ?

    ya, thats wat i thought, so under the hood i went, it turned out, the connection to the battery terminal was jsut a lil loose, so when the volume got loud, and it moved around, allowing the power to the amp to be interfierd with, now im faced with bigger problems, getting a new clutch for my truck ahah

  • Yea, you blew the voice coil. Pressing on the cone where you are is hitting the spot that is making the coil connect again. Just like a shorted wire. Sometimes you can bend it and get a connection. You are gonna have to replace the sub.

You probably have too much hooked up for the size of your power supply which is presumably a small car battery. You either need to get:

A) New, better bigger battery.
B) Capacitor in series with battery.
C) Both of the above.

Yes and Yes. If bypassing that noise filter, has no effect your subs could have blown.

Sub cutting out


500W x 1 @ 2ohm

How did you "switch the sub from 2ohms to 4 ohms"?

If you have the swr-1222d as listed, your only options are wiring 1 or 4 ohm, as it is a dual 2 ohm voicecoil.

If it was wired @ 1 ohm - you may have already done the damage to your amplifier - as it is not rated @ 1ohm mono.

There are 3 reasons the amplifier will go into protect mode while playing...
Thermal - overheating due to too low impedence.
Ground Loop/Short Circuit - Blown voicecoil, bad amplifier ground, tinsel slap, etc.
Overload - Impedence not within specs.

Disconnect every wire (including RCAs) from the amplifier. Reconnect only power and ground - make a short wire to loop from power terminal to remote terminal.

If the amplifier stays on without turning off - remove the jumper, add the remote wire, and try again.

If it turns off - the problem is internal and needs repair.

Still on? plug in 1 rca, and re-try.... then the other.

Still going??

Now use an Ohm Meter - or Digital multimeter set to ohms 20, and check both voicecoils. They should read 2ohms +/- .5ohm.

If they are OK, wire up the 4ohm load (series the voicecoils) and turn the gain on the amplifier to 1/2.

Retry -

If the amplifier continues to fail at higher volumes - the thermal protection relay has become weakened because of your improper wiring, and will need to be repaired to solve your issue.

Sub is blowing fuses!! :(


The issue is most likely a short in the amp internal circutry where power is essentially flowing without resistance acrosss the short. You may or may not have sound or crackling noise as it depends on where the short is.

If you are electronically inclined, I suggest the folliowing:

- disconnect all power and open the amp up
- look for any burn marks around the circut board and parts.
- first focus in on the area where the power comes in - see if any diodes (black cylinders with stripes on them) are burnt / cracked
- next have a look at all the MOSFETS. These should be 3-legged components and will likely be mounted to the shell or heatsink. Look for any burn marks or cracks on these.
- also look for any wire or component that may be shorting other components. Generally all wires should have shielding and all components should be soldered firmly. Anything crossing other components could be a problem.

If you find any burnt/cracked components, they will need to be replaced.

Here is a sample image showing the MOSFET chips to the top and bottom on the aluminum rail.

Subs cutting out


Agree with Kev. Even if the woven lead wire looks ok, it can still be bad. I unsoldered it, clipped a lil from both ends, and re-soldered it. Works great now.

Subwoofer seem to be broke


The one sub that you described is gone, there should be no reistance at all when you push on them. It sounds like you got your gains set to high on that amp (maybe the amp is underated for your subs). When you turn up the gain to high your cause your amp to distort and it can get as bad as sending a pure DV current to the sub. That DV current will blow subs because of all the force directed in one direction. If you think about it the amp takes a DC current and turns it into a AC current which creates the frequecy (rate at which it alternates) that alternating current pushes and then pulls on the sub keeping it within its boundries.
