I have a audiobahn ATB12AT powered subwoofer and i noticed that it powers on but only puts out very little sound when running, then i turned the gain back and forth and the sub moves in and out. what might be going on?

SOURCE: Audio system makes extra noises... pops

most of the time when a high power amplifier starts making noise not all the time but every once in a while or even all the time its the ground, if the amp turns on its not the power cable. try moving your ground to a different location or try using double grounds. the better the ground the better the sound. and as for turn on pops, put a toggle switch inline on your rem wire and turn it on after the car is started.

SOURCE: Powered Subwoofer won't work

This problem has many causes... but try this one... often when a faulty subwoofer speaker is to blame this test will tell you. Connect another speaker(any speaker) temp to check if there is audio still to the sub. Keep the levels down to ensure you dont go on a trail of destruction.
The spider wires from terminals on the speaker to the cone may be intermittent. I have seen this a lot on all types and makes of subwoofer driver!! This a common failure and can often be detected by tapping the speaker cone when it does the cut out thing. If it starts up, and they often do..., then you probably have intermittent spider wiring to the cone. A GOOD “Hi Fi speaker repair dood” can help here and replace the spider wires for you and save the expense of replacing the driver.
This is just one solution to the problem you are having.... there are many more..... and you should try this FixYa and see what happens. If you cant tell WTF then hit me back up here again. I work WITH YOU, to get the problem out for you.

If it sorted what you suspected... then rate me !FixYa!!.... Thanx

SOURCE: i have an audiobahn A8000t amp with the protection light on

There are many different ways that an amp can fail but the two most common failures are shorted output transistors and blown power supply transistors (< those are not blown). There are several types of protection circuits in amplifiers. The most common are over-current and thermal. The over-current protection is supposed to protect the output transistors. Sometimes it doesn't work well enough to prevent the failure of the output transistors but it will work well enough to shut the supply down before the power supply FETs are destroyed. If the amp remains in protect mode, goes into protect mode or blows the fuse as soon as the remote voltage is applied, shorted output transistors are almost certainly the cause. If the fuse protecting the amp is too large, if the protection circuit doesn't respond quickly enough or if the power supply is poorly designed, the power supply transistors may fail. If you see a lot of black soot on the power supply transistors (near the power transformer), the power supply transistors have failed. Soot on the board doesn't necessarily mean the transistors have failed. Sometimes, technicians don't clean up the mess from a previous failure.
In general, when a transistor fails, it will either short (common for output AND power supply transistors) or open (common for power supply transistors). Transistors act like valves. They control the current flowing through a circuit. A shorted transistor acts like a valve that's stuck open (passing too much current). In the case of an output transistor, the shorted transistors tries to deliver the full rail voltage to the speaker output terminal. If you've ever seen a damaged amp that pushed or pulled the speaker cone to its limits when the amp powered up (common on some Rockford amplifiers), that was almost certainly due to a shorted output transistor. When checking transistors, you most commonly look for shorted connections inside the transistor. You do this by using a multimeter to look for low resistance connections between the transistor's terminals.
Note:
I used the terms short and open on the previous paragraph. A short (short circuit) is a path through which current flows that should not be there. An open (open circuit) is a break in the circuit.

What would be the best size amp to purchase for two audiobahn aw1200 subwoofers and two pioneer 4-way 6"x9"?


First, I would purchase the amp based on the subwoofers alone. Allow unit power to run the 6x9's unless you are planning a intricate setup. Things to think about when buying your amplifier. Always get an amp that offers an RMS output of 25-30% greater than the combined RMS output of your subs. Also, the stability of the amp to handle ohms loads (1, 2, or 4 ohm stable). If you have two dual 4 ohm subs you can get a 2 channel 2 ohms stable amp, or a monoblock 1 ohm stable amp. This will get you the most power and sound for your buck. There are so many amplifiers out there at different price levels, it's really up to you. Hope this helps.

You have a Direct Short in the System Between the Head Unit and the Amp. Check the Ground on the Amp and then Check all the Wires behind the Stereo and the Common Ground There. You could even have a Spot in the New RCA Cables that is Touching Metal Somewhere. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

It doesn't hurt to have a separate battery for your system but not necessary. You're pulling enough power to do it if you want to save the beating your alternator takes evan with a power cap

Improper function


try hooking up your subwoofers in series. then connecting them bridged to the amplifier. as follows: positive from sub#1 into positive of amplifier left channel.. negative sub#1 into positive sub#2. negative sub#2 into negative amplifier right channel. turn the gain down as this will sound pretty loud.

It wont run my subwoofers


See if a) the head unit has a separate subwoofer output control, and make sure it's activated; b) the amplifier you're using for the subs has the gain control properly turned up; c) if neither of these fixes the problem, make sure all of your amp fuses are intact; d) make sure the subwoofers are in a properly-sized enclosure (too much or too little airspace can affect the sound output).

Static in speaker


Check to be sure you ran the audio wires away from the power supply wiring. I always run the audio down the Passenger side and power to amp on Drivers side. Also check you Ground, and be sure you have metal to metal, no paint obstructing the power.
