Sounds like you have burnt out something (as you probably already know LOL) but maybe you just over heated some wires that couldn't take the Amperage. If this is the case, you MUST find out:

Why there was so much Amperage there at the time
Why didn't the Fuse blow? (perhaps too high an Amperage fuse for the Unit?) and
Why could your unit not handle the Power? (perhaps not Rated for that Power Output?).

Note: Watts and Amperage are not Musical terms, they are Electrical terms. So an Amplifier Increases the output Current to a maximum level designated in various ways as PMP (common but misleading) RMS (the International Standard) and DIN (the mainly European standard). The receiving unit (in this case your sub woofer is designed to handle a maximum level of Current input and this is usually desribed (again misleadingly) as simply Wattage. The common factor here is that both your Amplifier and Sub woofer are probably using the PMP rating.

If this is the case then you can easily determine if the 2 units are compatible using their "Wattages". For instance, a 275 Watt amplifier is too much at HIGH outputs (volume) for a set of speakers Rated at 160 Watts (they will "blow") but will work fine at Lower volumes because the Amp is putting out less Power at Lower volumes and is therefore probably below the Speakers Maximum input range.

Conversely, it is OK if the speakers are Rated for higher inputs than your Amplifier can put out. For example, a 175 Watt amplifier is fine with speakers Rated for 240 Watts because it can never produce enough power to "blow" the speakers.

Just putting in heavier wires will almost certainly bow up the sub woofer if the initial problem is not solved.

Take it to a HI FI shop and get them to look at it. If they simply say "Can't repair these, buy this one", try another shop.

Sorry about the lecture.

Good luck.

I have a single 15" sub woofer in a box it was


Simply put, burned voice coil. Either too much power can do this or not enough power with distortion. solution- if the sound is clear then its too much power- turn the amp down. If the sound is distorted and raspy- its not enough power and your getting distortion-get bigger amp.

My sub was working fine and then began to smoke and hasn't began to work since. What should I look for to see if it is blown or what settings should I set it to so that I can get it working again?


the resin bonding the cone to the coil probably began to boil. this usually spells death for a woofer. if the sub is 1000 bucks, theres generally recone kits available.

My power pyramid sub is smoking i think its the jl 1000/1


If the sub is new, they need to be broken in.

All sub woofers need a break in period of about 5 to 6 hours at medium volume.
The reason is because the glue needs to be cured. This is done by the heat from working.

If you are giving it too much volume too soon, you are burning the glue.

Back off the subs and only play them at medium volume for about a week.

Are my speakers any good


Hello. What you are describing sounds like voice coil damage. Depending on the model, they may not be worth fixing. The amplifier and wiring should be checked carefully before the subs are replaced.

HOW TO CONNECT SUB WOOFER IN 4CH CAR AMP


sounds like you need another amp, if the amp has a speaker already connected to each channel, you have no open channel to connect a sub-woofer.
Some years ago I seen an amplifier that was designed to use 3 speakers on 2 channels. what they did was had a speaker on each channel and then they bridged the 3rd speaker across it. That amplifier was designed for this configuration, unless you have an amplifier like that you should not try it. It may result in smoke from the amp.
