    yup wired correctly. It was working before for about 5 months, and ive babied them. Then all of a sudden it stopped working. I thought I some how blew it. But it isn't blown. Like i say if i lightly press down anywhere on the sub it works fine. But its screwed! I might tape one side down haha! Warranty expired just expired of course. And i was about to just buy a new one at the same place, but they were charging $200 for the sub when i bought them for $75. (Same place remember*). So ill just run off one sub for now ;).



    ~Thank for your help

Are the wires connected properly? The SUB may be a dud, do you have warranty. Maybe there is not enough power getting to the SUB from the amp. Is it connected to 2 channels?? It will not play if only 1 channel is connected.

If the lights on your sub box aren't coming on it's either your ground of power wire came loose or the transformer blew. As for the subs, make sure all the connections are good, especially on your RCA wires. If your amp is getting power, then check your speaker connections. Also, make sure to turn the gain know up. The gain knob is located next to the RCA input on the amp. Let me know if this helps.

New in dash reciever, have sub woofers, they turn on but are not working


There are a number of issues that could be going on here. Go down this check list.

1. Check to make sure your head unit is getting power
2. Make sure the volume is up and that you do not have the unit on mute


The following list is if you have an amp (I assume you do if you have subwoofers).

1. Make sure the RCA cables are plugs to the correct outlet RCA's on the unit.
2. Make sure the RCA cables are not crimped at any point on the way back to the amplifier
3. Make sure the power and ground are good on the amplifer and that the remote turn on is functioning (this will turn the amp on).
4. Make sure the RCA cables are plugged into the right place on the amplifier.
5. Check the gain levels on your amp. This is a dial next to the RCA input. You will need a small flat head screwdriver to adjust.
6. Make sure the subs are wired correctly. If they are wired to the wrong ohms load they may cause the amp to go into protection.


If this doesn't help, you may need to get more specific in your next post.

So after getting my car back for the garage my subwoofer isn't working I checked to make sure all of the connections are correct and the settings are there why won't it work


Check to see if your amp is on. You may have blown a fuse somewhere maybe on your amp. Check for proper voltages and make sure the sub isn't blown by pushing on it. If you feel unequal resistance, you probably blew it. Also check the ohms on the woofer.

My sub woofer will stop working if i put the bass up to loud, ill have to turn my car off and on to get it to work again. What could be the problem?


Seems like your power amp for the sub woofer may be going into protect mode/thermal overload when you push the volume too much. Therefore it shuts down. I am surprised the speaker hasn't blown yet.

As far as turning car off/on to get it to work, it's as if your car is the power switch.

Amp and speakers may not be wired correctly, as you want to make sure your amp/speaker ohm measurements are within a specific range for the amp and speakers work together properly. You may have it wired for a 2 ohm load, and maybe your amp can't do 2 ohms all day long.

How do i get the best sound from my infinity 1250w subwoofers


Make sure the ohm's are the same on all your speakers and amp.
You amp watt should be equal or higher then your speakers total amps.
You base box should be completely air tight, and have about 1/2 of the box stuffed with cotton.
Make sure you use a good thick speaker cables to connect from the amp to the speakers.
and finally, make sure your trunk seals tight and wont rattle... cause nothing sounds worse then someone pulling next to you and all you hear is a buzzing sound from the trunk rattling... Also... sell the infinity's and get something like memphis, or panasonics. :P

Sub woofer is blowing up and down even when head unit is off


This is an internal power supply failure - most likely a failed capacitor or bad ground trace..
Your amplifier requires repair.
To verify this - remove the RCA cables and if the "heartbeat" is still present - take the amplifier to a local repair shop that specializes in car audio and tell them your symptoms.

Is my amp powerful enuff for woofer


That amp should work fine for that sub, but you should make sure that the amp has a good power system going to it, and the box for your sub is the right one. Either one of those things could cause problems if not done correctly.
