Do the door speakers cut out completely? Are your subs running on a separate amp? If the answers are "yes" and "yes", there's a good chance your door speaker amp is either overheating or being overloaded (i.e. running 1 ohm loads on the channels). To fix this would require either re-mounting the amp somewhere it can get better airflow and/or rewiring the door speakers to be less of a load on the amp. If you provide details on your door speakers and amp(s) setup, I can provide a more detailed suggestion.

I hooked up my 2 dvc 12in subs to 1100 w interfire ib2900c 2ohm stable amp..however after hooked up subs make very loud bababababa sound when turned on ..what don i do to fix this?


It's in your rca lines or you are missing or don't have good enough ground to your amplifier or CD player. To check this simply unplug your RCA's at the radio it's your radio. If it dosent it's in your rcas

Can I connect two Sub-woofer speaker to my car CD receiver Model No.DEH-P4950MP without using Power Amp ? because I really don't need very high Audio sound volume but I need to hear all Audio...


head units do not provide enough power to run subwoofers. instead, get yourself some new door speakers, and enjoy the difference. if not, you will need an amp to power the subs.

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

Is there a wiring diagram for the nikkai EAPA450 Amp


Hi, if you still need a photocopy of instructions email me mail@srands.co.uk

If you want instructions in brief this involves POWER CONNECTIONS, PHONO LEAD & SPEAKER CONNECTIONS:

POWER (At the same time when routing these wires, I would connect the PHONO LEADS from the car cd player to the amp, if your car cd player only has 1 preout (1red & 1 white) then you will need two phono splitters, a female to 2 males. Phono leads carry the unamplified sound from cd player to the amp):
~ Permanent 12V+ (Thick lead that is fused direct from battery all the way to the amp, wire must be 20a to 30a +, hence 1cm diameter wire, known as AWG8, Maplin sell cheaper kits then most)
~ Amp REMOTE (A thin insulated cable (5a is OK) from car cd player amp remote wire, this turns the amp on when the cd player is on, if your car doesn't have an amp remote wire, suggest nearest ignition supply or seperate switch that you turn on when you want to turn on the amp)
~ GrouND 12V- (Insulated lead (20a to 30a) to nearest part of unpainted car chassis such as interior panel screw hole, instead of an insulated cable all the way from the batery, this is common practise.

SPEAKER:
Each speaker has a - negative & + positive, these must connected correctly. The amp has 4 channel, 2 channel labeled as front, 2 channels labeled as rear. Using speaker wire, connect cable from amp to speakers. Note: Ensure the speakers being connected only receive sound from the amp (Not cd player as well, as would damage players or at the very least impair sound)
The amp has a feature called bridgeable this means a sub 8" or 10" sub can be powered by 'bridging' two channels. For example there are 2 ways to bridge power a Sub on the NIKKAI EAPA450:
i) Sub speaker wire positive + to channel RL and Sub speaker wire negative - to channel RR.
OR
ii) Sub speaker wire positive + to channel FL and Sub speaker wire negative - to channel FR.

Switches:
~ Bass boost, meant to be on for a channel if using sub, otherwise off.
~ X-over mode adjust hi/lo frequencies, only work if both x-over switches are on! Then adjust switch frequency knob, until it sounds right.
~ Gain (Volume knob) adjust volume knob up or down, until it sounds right!

NOTE:
You will need patience! many hand tools and parts such as: Wiring kit, fuse holder 20a/30a, Phono leads, speaker cable, Fork/ring connectors, wire strippers, wire cutters, set of screw drivers, also ueful to have zip ties to tdy excess cable and 'P' cable clips to tidy speaker wire to shelf, etc.

OK

Any more questions just email me mail@srands.co.uk

Only door speakers have sound on the cd mode


the amp requires a 12 volt power constant, and a 12 volt "on" signal. you prolly have the 12 v "on" hooked up to the car stereo's antennae remote, meaning your amp gets power when the radio is on, cuase the radio is sending a signal to the amp (thinking that it is sending a signal to the antennae to raise)

you do have one of those collapsable antennas, right?

Another question for zzedly about the speakers cutting out


So, as I see it, your system is hooked up like so:
  • Ch1 = Left speakers, front and back
  • Ch2 = Right speakers, front and back
  • Ch3 = One sub
  • Ch4 = Other sub
One thing you can try is swapping channels. Swap Ch1 with Ch3 and Ch2 with Ch4. Then see if the issue still occurs on the door speakers or do the subs suddenly cut out at loud volume. If the subs start cutting out, that means the issue is with Ch1 and Ch2. If you haven't already, check the RCA connections to Ch1 and Ch2 as well as the gain for all channels. If the gain isn't already set to about 50%, put it there.

Speakers All Cut out Including Sub When Music is Played Loud


UNPLUG THE GREEN WIRE FROM THE COMPUTER AND PLUG IT INTO A CD PLAYER IF IT WORKS BETTER ON A CD PLAYER THAN THE COMPUTER IT SELF THERE MAYBE A PROBLEM WITH THE SOUND CARD AND ALSO TRY THESE STEPS I AM GOING TO GIVE YOU I AM SURE ONE OF THEM WILL WORK.

1. Please ensure that the all the connections between the satellite speakers and the subwoofer are firmly connected.
2. Next, please connect the green colored 3.5mm audio jack to another audio device such as an iPod or an MP3 player.
3. Ensure that the SoundTouch remote control is firmly connected to the back of the subwoofer.
4. Connect the power cord from the subwoofer and connect it to another single power outlet in your house. If you have an automated voltage regulator (AVR), please connect the power cord through the AVR instead of connecting it directly to a power outlet in your house.
5. Power up the speaker system and check whether the power button on the SoundTouch remote control will light up.
6. Turn on the Matrix Mode ON. This option is on the SoundTouch remote control. This is to ensure all speakers from the speaker system will produce audio that will be played from the audio device.
7. Play audio from the audio device. Check and see whether the all the speakers will produce audio being played from the audio device.

IF NONE WORK TRY THESE STEPS:

Sound shuts off, sub still works


That is a common problem with this radio, for it can not go to loud without going down in volume or shutting down.

At high volume sound shuts off, subs still work


You most likely have a shorted or damaged speaker, which is causing the internal amp chip to shut down (but does not affect the preamp outputs). A test you can do is to fade to one speaker at a time and turn it up to se if it shuts down. Repeat with each speaker until you find the one that causes the fault. Then replace it.

HU Shuts Down - "Protect" Blinking


if it is only doing it over 30 then you need to turn down the bass level on the deck and make up for it with the subs sounds like its putting out too much juice. also if your car has a factory amp for your door speakers ect make sure that your factory speakers are the same ohms as the cd player which is 4ohm ,most fancier car speakers are 2 ohm. if that is the case the amp on the cd player is going in to protect mode to prevent frying your factory amp if you have one. check all your wiring from the cd player to the car and make sure it is all properly hooked up and there are no crosed wires. or wire hooked up incorrectly. also make sure the amp wiring kit is big enough gauge for the amp. make sure its not the amp that runs your subs that is cutting off the HU.
