The power cord might be the culprit, it is not supplying enough power

I have a system installed and i have mtx speakers plus mtx subwoofers i want to know how could i take the bass of the speakers because it sounds horrible when loud


if you turn the bass setting in your radio down it will take the bass out, but may take some of the bass out of the subs as well, if this occurs and you still are not satified, you either have to get a car receiver with a non fading subwoofer preout, or you could get bass blockers for all the speakers you dont want the bass in

What would cause my fossgate t1500 to shut off everytime the bass hits hard I have two t12s that it pushes


Sounds like your amp isnt powerful enough to power your subs, whats the wattage of your amp and both subs? Its shutting off when hard bass hits to protect itself from blowing, a good feature as a blown amp means a new one. an amp should always be more powerful than the speakers / subs you are connecting to it. for 2 500w subs your looking at a 1200w amp minimum.

When i first bought my alpine type r 12's they were perfect bass really loud but now they aren't as loud i think the cone inside messed up


If the cone messed up there would be a lot of rattling. Most likely the subs have just gotten broken in and won't sound as loud as brand new. Over time and with use a subwoofer magnet will start to weaken. When the magnet weakens it won't hit as hard anymore.

I have hooked this up to a working reciever that


Fill in the blanks about the working receiver.

You mention another subwoofer, which suggests your receiver manages the bass and possibly sends most or all of it to the sub.

If it's NOT sending the bass to the speaker terminals you use to drive the AM5 that would explain it's virtually silent bass module.

If those speaker terminals on your receiver can be set to LARGE, do it. Otherwise they assume the speakers are incapable of handling bass.

How to mount a bandpass sub


usually you will get the best sound with the box mounted approximately 3" away from rear of trunk with speaker facing toward the rear of trunk if it is a single speaker enclosure you want to do the same just offset it to one side of the trunk corners always amplify sound however just so you know 10's are not really made for low bass they usually have more of a hard hitting pound instead of a low rumble usually 12's will give you the low bass better and it also depends on what kind of box a vented box would be best for low bass sealed box gives you tighter bass but you need more power ported is good for low bass but gets sloppy when loud and a bandpass is used for loud hard hitting bass

Subwoofers not hitting as hard as it should.


First thing when your care is idleing turn you system up and watch your rpms. Is it going all over the place when you turn it up?If so your altenator isn't putting out enough power.Might be able to fix that problem with another fadar cap. You should buy the digital read out for your cap to see how bad its draws power.They have ones that will mount to the top of your fadar cap.You can all so get a bigger altenator.Also check your ground clean it along with other connection batter,both sides of you fuse and any other connection,bass will loose all bolts/screws over time because of the bass,even to sub have had one work its way off in a year once.

Unwanted bass coming out of my subs


there has to be sumthn hooked up wrong bc i have had same problem with my 12' subs but it was simply a matter of my rca jacks but sense you have checked them try rewiring the speakers if that does not work then your rca module may be burned out within the amp..iso then check the amp by taking the cover off and making sure nuthn is burned on the inside.or if any wires are loose or touching.

"cracking" noise


Your subwoofer is not capable of playing as loud as you want it to. That sound is the woofer reaching its limit. If you have any bass tone setting on your receiver set them to flat. If there are any other bass settings i.e contour, loudness boost etc turn them off. You can also try putting the woofer into a corner. This will increase the output. Closer to you would also be louder. Otherwise you need a sub with more output. Don't let the power rating fool you when you get a new one.

SubWoofer


Sounds like your original and this sub have bad amps. The amp for the sub is not the same as the amp for the other speakers. The old unit has a dead amp and this new one is on the way out. (Pulling too much current on high bass)
