You haave either connected it incorrectly.make sure the ohm of the speaker matches that of the amp ..connect the positive coil to the positive coil at the back of the sub and the same for negative .then run your cables to the amp .you should only have one positive cable and one negative cable .this connection will create a 2 ohm connection make sure the amp can handle that load .prefarably using a 2 channel bridgable amp or 1 channel monoblock

Speakers cutting in and out at high volume


The amp is going into protect on the two channels powering the speakers. Turn down the gain on those two channels. You also may want to consider crossing over the speakers a little higher than they are now.

The rating on those speakers are way too high. 6.5's and 6x9's will take 50-100 clean watts tops before they start to break up.

The best solution to get it perfect is....unplug the subs. Turn the gain on the speaker channels all the way down. Then turn up the deck 80% as high as it will go. Play a song. Then increase the gain on the amp until the speakers are as load as they go without distortion. Shut off the car, replugg in the subs and do the same thing. Gain on sub channels all the way down, deck then to 80%, find a bass heavy song, then turn gain up until subs become distorted. If you do this procedure your speakers and subs will be "gain matched" to the proper levels.

Good Luck

Flashing Blue is not defined in the manual.

Have you tried changing the Auto Standby switch to ON?

You can prove if the sub amp will respond to a known good input by TURNING ITS VOLUME DOWN tp start and just feeding it ANY RCA output from the receiver while playing, say, FM (to keep it simple). That way you would known in which direction the problem actually lies (internal or external).

I wired my dvc sub woofers to 4 ohms and bridged my pioneer gm-5400 amp and it cuts off when i turn the volume up.


1. Check if your power cable is of adequate Gauge 2. Try turning the volume down from the amplifier gain level 3. You could even check to see if your battery is on it's way out and just cant feed the amplifier with the power it needs. (very rare case) do the car lights dim when the volume is not really that loud? 4. There could be an error on the way the subs are connected, double check that you have absolutely configured them to run @ 4OHM. could be checked with a multimeter before connecting to the amplifier. 5. Another rare case is sometimes the fuse block expands when it heats up on loud volumes and can have contact issues so try tightening the socket that the fuse goes into. 6. It could also be a problem with one of the sub woofer or even the amplifier. more details might help me better understand the problem, but i hope this helps. dreamsystems

Why do i need to open my gain up to 3/4 to full turn inoder to achieve a loud bass?Im using punch 2400 amp and 2 12" kicker.


the amp may not be powerful or your setting on the cd player is not right try adjusting the cd player. turning the gain all the way up will damage your subs even go above halfway

Sub seems to not get louder with volume increase. It seems to be overpowering at low volume or boomy then as you increase volume the front main speakers seem to take over.


Try adjusting the frequency cut off of the sub and also play with the gain control on the sub. Turn your system up to where your front speakers are sounding as you like. Then try adjusting the sub to match the fronts so you have a good balance and blend.

I have a Pioneer GM-5300T amp wired to a 10 inch kicker sub. The music plays throughout the speakers of my car but the sub goes in and out. I noticed that the amp's power light dims when the sub goes in...


Hello pburgfootbal,

You do not specify which Kicker sub you have or how it is wired to the amp. The GM-5300T is only stable to 4ohms in bridged mode and if your sub is a 4ohm DVC with the coils in parallel, it presents a 2ohm load. If the sub is 2ohm DVC with the coils in parallel, the load is only 1ohm. Either configuration would be too low of an impedance for the amp in bridged mode. I'd check the sub specifications and make sure that the wiring configuration properly matches it to the amp.

Hope this helps.

Usually an 800 watt peak sub would be a 400 watt rms. Hmmmm. Anyway, just bridge the amp (1x 380) nd keep the gain up enough to stay clean. Watch the sub and turn up gain until it starts to distort, then back it down a hair. Do this with the CD players volume up 2/3 to 3/4 volume with the BASS and treble at zero (bass better at minus 4 or so if you are a bass head! Hope thishelps.

The specs I read on the Pioneer site say the amp is not 1 ohm stable, so keep that in mind.

It partially depends on the impedance of each voice coil on the DVC subs. If they are dual 4 ohm, and you connect the DVCs in parallel ("+"s together, "-"s together), you could run a sub on each channel of the amp(s). This would put about 200W on each sub.

The other option is to still tie the dual 4 ohm voice coils in parallel, tie 2 subs in series (one "+" to the other "-"), and bridge the two channels of the amp (aka put them in parallel). But this, also, would be about 200W on each sub.

Things get different if the subs have dual 2 ohm, 3 ohm, or 8 ohm voice coils.
