I bought a new BOSS BASS 600 . I presume I have done all the wiring correctly , power,remote,line-in and ground. The Amp turns on with the green light ,so does the control box light comes on. But there is no sound from the woofer , what can I do ? How can I check if there is a signal from the head unit line out and remote line ?

The process is pretty much straight forward for any amp.
This is what you will need to get the job done:
15 ft- 4 gauge power wire (RED) with in-line fuse
3 ft - 4 Guage Ground wire (Brown)
15 ft - 12-16 Gauge Remote wire (Blue)
15 ft - RCA Wires
Here are the steps:
BATT - (Battery +12v) - This will be a 4 guage red wire that you will run directly from your car battery to this Terminal. Be sure to buy a wire a with an inline fuse. This is the main power supply to your amp. Be careful 12 volts doesn't sound like much till you see it in action. I would do this wire last, last thing you want is a hot wire accidentally touching some bare metal.
GND - (Ground Wire) - This is the terminal you will use to ground the AMP. Run a 4 guage wire from this terminal and fasten it to some bare metal in your trunk. Not more than three feet.
RCOM/Remote - There will be a small gauge wire from the back of your stereo that will be the remote wire it will be blue, most stereos have this wire labeled. Its purpose is to send a signal to the amp to turn on when the radio is powered on.
RCA Wires - The location for these is not pictured above, on the back of your stereo there will be amp outputs. Your stereo will send all your low frequencies (Bass) to your amp using these wires. On the amp you will see where these wires will go. They are essential to have a system.
The best way to go about this is hook up the power, ground, and remote and test the Amp to see if it powers up. I have seen so many of my friends skip this step and they paid for it later.
I hope this helps if you need any more help let me know.
It's not bad, but at 400 watts, it's a bit underpowered It'll be plenty loud, but the amp will distort before the speakers do, particularly if your subs are wired in parallel (as dual-driver boxes are typically wired)
Listen for distortion, and turn it down a bit if the sound gets fuzzy or static-y sounding
I have never seen one of these amps however it is probably just like the rest of the remote bass control ports out there. Just get a phone cable and cut the one end off. There will be four wires. The inside pair get tied together and soldered to the wiper of a potentiometer, the outer wires get solder to the outer legs of the potentiometer. I believe a 600 ohm pot is what i used for my phoenix gold amp. Good luck
Main power wires
Yellow to constant always on power
red to accessories
black to ground
blue if you have an amp this will be remote wire if you dont have amp then just cap off
the other wires are as follows
top section speaker wires right and left
bottom section speaker wires right and left
the speaker wires come in colors like purple purple line
grey grey line
orange orange line
white white blueline
these are your speaker wires simple just remember power lines grounds
You need to check the DC voltage across the B+ and ground terminals. You also need to check the DC voltage across the remote and ground terminals. If the voltage is less than 11 volts, you need to check the B+ supply and remote wiring for breaks or open fuses. You should also check the ground connection to confirm that it's not loose.
If the voltage is OK, the output transistors are likely shorted.
