There is a short in your wiring somewhere, unfortunately, it would be impossible for me to tell you where it's at. The best advice I could give you is to start at the speakers and work your way back. Hope this helps and good luck!

It sounds like one of them is out of phase (wired backwards). Check the polarity, or just reverse the polarity on one, even if they both look right. What happens is that, if one is out of phase, on bass notes, one cone moves inward while the other moves out, causing them to cancel each other out at low frequencies. It's only on low frequencies because of the long wavelengths.

Cda 9885, When in tuner mode sub does not play


Does you car volume get lower when you stop. If not sounds like an internal issue. No sound at all my brother hooked his up and when he switched to tuner everything would go through the subs but you would not know it sounded like his 6x9s no bass. was a wiring issue. I dont know if this helped or not.

Gigaset a420 has stopped making or receiving calls


You mean unplugged it from the power outlet or the RG45 wall jack? OK so if the battery is fine and you unplugged the power from the source, then the issue is with either the cord itself or the charging unit. Just because the little red light comes on does not mean it is working properly. Put a multi-meter on the charging tabs to double check for continuity. Sometimes and as weird as this sounds, it just takes unplugging a nearly spent power pack/inverter to finish the job so to speak. If you unplugged it from the RG45 then you need to look at the pins in the RG45 wall jack to see if you inadvertently bent one out of shape.Phone won't work if there's no signal. Wish I could help more. Good luck with that issue.

I own a 1992 Silver City MSN jukebox. I have checked the crossovers and polarity of the woofers. Found 1 speaker to be out of phase. Crossover fine. Better bass, but still weak..How can I increase the bass...


instead of hacking your unit, frankly speaking buy a new one if you want to increase the bass, its circuit is design only to produce that amount of bass sound. the sound it produces depends on how much power its audio amplifier has and how much its powers supply have.

No display and Thump and static from bass


The poor display is a known problem.. see my other posts for the cure. As for the thump..a slight one isn't uncommon... but static?- you mean crackling? from the cubes? all of them? unplug the audio leads from the head unit to the bass and see if it stops..then you can narrow it down a bit.

Bassles Powerplant 6x9s


try reversing the polarity on one speaker.
they might be out of phase.
what happens is the speakers cancel out.
put the balance to one side,and if it has bass,then that is the problem.
if there is no bass with only one playing,then phasing is not the problem

Amplifiers GT Series GT5-A604 ........explain settings


the amp probably has a x-over knob, a bass boost knob, and an eq knob. the eq is probably an internal crossover switch that will take the output from either high range (tweeters) or full range (6x9s) or low pass (subs) leave it on low pass. the bass boost however, will add distortion if turned up too high. its not noticable in the car, actually it sounds louder in the car but if you open the trunk and listen, you can tell its distorted bass and actually frying your speakers. the x-over knob is used to tune the frequency at which the amp stops pushing out bass tones. if you like rock music loud, turn it up higher, if you like low deep rap bass, turn it lower. keeping it too high might give you bad sound from either type though. ALSO THE GAIN OR LEVEL.IT IS NOT TO MAKE YOUR SUBS LOUDER IT WILL BLOW THEM .the gain is used to set your amp to your head unit which there is a procedure to do it.

Quick question, amp problem


make sure you ground wires arent shared, meaning run each ground wire from each amp to its own grounding point

No power


You probably have ONE of the speakers wired out of phase.

If the speakers are wired correctly, you may have the crossover set to high pass instead of low pass.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
