Hit bump and subs and amp wont work

My system was working fine and then i hit a bump and noticed my subs were out. ive checked all connections and they are good. when i turn the radio on the amp gets power and immediately shuts off. i figured it was the ground and when i push on it i get crackles and pops but no sound.

    power and remote wire are good so i opened up the amp (JL e1400D) and only one LED (d2) is lit up out of the total 10 (including the exterior power light. would this be a fuse or something?

Loose wire or connection is causing stereo to short out, Check all connections including amp,Stereo,Speakers and make sure nothing is touching places it shouldn't

If bumps affect the noise then you should be looking at loose wires and connections for the speakers and at the back of the system. Look for a bad earth or the earth wire connected up to something that is not really a good earth

You can use a "Y" cable to combine the two RCA cables to the one out. You will need a 1 male to 2 male cable. That will solve the signal problem. Is the amp functioning properly. I would check that first. Make sure your wiring is correct. Hope this helps

Kickers dont beat like they should


try to check and clean the wiring as clean as possible to avoid messing up on your connection. Check the polarity of you subs to yuor amp if you have it connected on the outher way around it would not give you a good result. check the polarity this will solve your problem. Over powering your sub will fry it easily try to tune it a 10" sub wont give you a 15" performance..

Subs dont beat like they should


you've spent alot of money on **** by the sounds of it!!. you should only ever run multiple subs the same brand, power and resistance you can just connect any old subs to a system you need to wire them depending on the load that the amp needs to see. first thing is to try the amp/s on a individual sub to check your amps still work once done check the subs 1 by 1.

Deck, Sub and Amp Problems


check for any loose connections at the fuse block or a loose fuse
using an ohm meter would help
check the harness on the back of the radio for loose connection
bad igntion switch, again an ohm meter would help !

Amp does not power on, flickers when cable disconnected.


With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage drops below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.

Spontaneously shorted, now blowing fuses on amp too.


Time to go to the repair shop. Sounds like you have a blown amp. Good luck.
