Fader/sub/speaker not working properly


I'm not an expert but often people connect subs to normal speaker wires in back of the radio. You need a dedicated subwoofer line so high frequency sound doesn't go to the subs. Only bass. Sounds like it wasn't wired properly.

Hi i have a bnps102 subwoofer system along with a pyle 1400 watt amp. my amp is getting power to it hence the green light lighting up and the subs sounded great but last week during a song they both...


You are right about the scratching sound meaning the speaker is blown. The other one by it not playing it could mean the voice coils in it are blown or burnt.The safest way to check the speaker is to connect it to a standard 9 volt battery and listen for a popping noise when you make the connection and look the see if the cone stands up as long as the connection is made n returns to normal and no noises when disconnected from the 9 volt battery. To test this while the sub is plugged in to the amp but out of the box move the cone as far in and as far out as it will go. If it comes on while u hold it on either one of these positions but when released it goes back to not playing then the coils in it are blown or burnt and is no longer any good. As for selling the box its on you, aim anywhere from 2/3 to 1/2 the price you paid for it minus the speakers.

My tv has one sub output socket,but my active sub woofer has a red and white input sockets.what lead do i need to connect it up with?


Sounds like the output on the TV is a phono socket or a jack and the inputs on the sub woofer take banana plugs. You need (or should make up) a lead with a phono or jack plug one and and two banana plugs the other end. (phono plug/socket has two connections and banana plugs just one)

If you can provide the model numbers of the two bits of equipment I can check this for you.

You can hook them up either way, the banana jacks are good for hooking two speakers to one terminal (ie one through the botton, one banana) but the electrical connection is the same either way. Sometimes the banana capable jacks are on speakers A and speakers B, and the surround don't accept banana plugs, your stuck with how your reciever is wired.

Alpine MRD-M1005 Subwoofer Amp Problem


He may be right! You might try finding a new source of contact for your ground cause it may not be sufficent enough to ground to, also make sure that no wires from the back of your radio have any wires sticking out touching other interfering things that could possibly be causing the noise

Subwoofer just stopped working. There's power but no sound.


I have the same problem. My guess is that the subwoofer coil is messed up. You MIGHT have to get it recoiled. But before you do any of that get someone with a sub to play their sub in your car, if it works.... then your sub is messed up, if not.....then your amp is messed up ( trial and error ). Today i noticed my subs rubber surrounding is crooked, that may be the problem for me. Also when I press down on the sub it makes a sticking sound, like something came loose. So once i get everything opened and out ill let you all know the solution. Good Luck!

Voice coil has been blown open. Most likely alot of times what I do to test a speaker is connect it to a 9 volt battery. on and off and the speaker should bounce. If not speaker is blown. Plus this way you could save yourself lots of problems. If the speaker was shorted and not blown open. You would now possible have a blown amp and home stereo.
