Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty. Your amp is clipping. Double check all connec

Hi,i think you should check the wiring connection from the battery to the radio unit,there is probably disconnected wire from the battery which supplies power to the unit,particularly the places you applied the electrical tapes,also ensure to bolt down the radio properly because constant distortion of the radio from its desired position might affect the server unit of the device. However,its a power problem,so ensure you carry out a thorough check on the wiring power connections in your car.

Thanks and take care

My subwoofers cut out after 30 seconds of use but work fine during the 30 seconds...my fuses are all fine and i'm running thick wire with an 80 amp fuse connected off battery...I have a lanzar vibe286...


If it's only your subwoofers cutting out and your speakers are still playing and all, try turning gain down on sub amp and see if that fixes it. I know if I crank my amp too high it kicks itself off to try to keep itself from blowing.

I hooked up a Sony deck and new Kenwood 12' subwoofers and amp that came together in a box set in my 95 Jeep Grand Cherokee and when I play the radio the stock car speakers play but the subwoofers are...


their should be a blue and blue white wire on the Sony radio. cut the blue wire and then connect the car side to the blue white wire and tape off the blue wire that is on the radio side.
the blue wire only turns on when the radio is activated. the blue white wire is activated when the radio is turned on.
please rate my solution.

My inside highs cut out . want causes this?


Alot of amps and speaker crossover have protection circuits built into them so when you turn up the music to much it's there so you don't blow your speakers. Try turning down the gain on the amp if that does'nt work check your speaker wiring for out of phase meaning
+ - wires are backwards. To test them use a 9v Battery touch the speaker wire to the + - terminals on the battery if the speaker pops out it's inphase and good if it pops in it is out of phase reverse wires and if all that checks out get a stonger amp.

I put an after market cd player in my 2003 acura 3.2 tl type s. all the speakers are working fine but i am not getting any sound out of the factory subwoofer, it is not working. any idead what i did wrong...


You got to connect the blue amp turn on wire. If still dont work. then you got to find the factory amp find the two wires that sends frequency signals to the amp. You will see a total of 7 wires. So you've got to use process of elimination. Use a multimeter.

1.Constant 12 Volt
2. Ground
3. Amp turn on
4. + output wires going to the + of the subwoofer
5. - output wires going to the - of the subwoofer
6 + input wires going to the radio harness
7 + input wires going to the radio harness

6 & 7 are like the rca's you plug in at the input of an aftermarket amplifier and and on the other end plug in the output subwoofer of the Radio.

So on a factory amp you wont see any RCA's its all wires. Once you find the first 5 just remember the last 2 wires.

If you want your radio to control the gain and volume of the Subwoofer get a long RCA plug it on the back of your radio that says sub output and then cut the other end of that RCA and connect the positive the + input wire on the amp and the negative to the negative input wire on the amp.

If you dont know whats positive or negative just go ahead and connect it and experiment. You will know if your in phase when the subs sound boomy. Then the connections are correct. If it sounds Tinney then the connection is out of phase. solder then tape all connections with black electrical tape. Dont leave any power wires exposed or else cause a short and blow fuses.

Good luck

My PG Xenon 600 watt amp will not power my subwoofers


hello it sounds like your problem may be in the remote/power wire that goes from the back of your radio deck to the amplifier. the amp should have a wire connection that says remote,p.con, or antenna. and its usually the smallest wire connector located by the power and ground wire. this wire goes to the solid blue wire coming out of the deck. you can conect the wires together any way you want. i usualy shave off a little pice of the wire cover and wrap the wire coming from the amp around the bare wire then cover it in electical tape or cut the blue wire from the deck at a fit length and use a wire nut and put the two cut ends in and also the wire coming from the amp. also make sure the amplifire dose not have power to it just to be safe. wouldent want to fry anything.

There is also the left and right wires(ususaly red and white) that go on the back of the deck to the amp.

also chek the volume on the amplifire

JVC Subwoofer problem.


You may have a break in the wire. You can find out by slowing moving your fingers down the wire until you notice sound coming from the subwoofer. You can fix it yourself by cutting about an inch away from the break both ways. Then cuttings some of the wire off, so the copperwire is exposed. then wrap the two copperwire ends together and seal it with elections tape. or Try replacing the 60 watt subwoofer wire.

New car speakers cut out when I turn up the volume.


You just have to check all of the speaker wiring.It's a wire touching somewhere and it will do that till you fix it. What it is is just where the negative wire which is the ground for your spreakers it's touching the positive wire which is know as a power wire.When this happends it lowers the frequency of the volume which will cause the speakers to cut out and volume level to drop.
