I had these 12in pioneer subs so I went and bought the new Rockford Fosgate they came out like a week ago my problem is every time i hook them up to the amp the protection red light turns on can you...


if the amps impedance is higher than the speaker, it will trigger the protection circuits, because the amp sees it as an overload, example the amp has 8 ohm impedance specified, and your speaker has 4 ohm specification, that is a clear overload. Bring the subs back to the amp's dealer and have the amp replaced; the one that matches your subs. Hope this helps... ;-)

I have this same problem


Check the power with a volt meter. The battery power, then the remote power. Also make sure it's grounded properly. bad grounds cause mayhem.

I just got the Kenwood Sub KSC WA100 from my cousin with no electric wires or nothing so pretty much what all do i need and where can i find it i will be putting it in a 07 nissan sentra 2.0


Subs are subs, they come with no wiring. You need an amp and all necessary wiring to get it bumping. What type of deck do you have? Where will the sub be placed? In the trunk? Amp install is easy. Also suggest purchasing one of those amp kits for $20-$30, makes it a bit easier.

I had my subs installed a month ago and a few days ago the subs are working,everythings connected but not working and my subs aren't blown out because i don't have my music that loud so whats the problem?


what model kenwood speakers do you have? what head unit do you have? do you know how they hooked up the rca cables to the back of the deck? if this deck has got 3 pre outs you may have lost the sub pre-out. are you amp lights coming on? if you are still having problems you can take a 9v drill battery or bigger and touch the wires from the speaker to the battery, make sure positive to positive and neg. to neg. the speakers should pop if they are ok, that should re-assure you on the speakers. let me know and ill help where i can. good luck

Ive had 6 blown subs in the last 6 months


be careful with fosgate amps. They are more powerful then what is stated on them. I found this out when I blew a 15 with a punch 260ix. These amps are made for competion use. The 600.1 does not push 600 watts as stated. I had one tested and it actually pushes close to 800 watts. Turn ur bass level and ur gain to about 3/4 power and this should solve your problem

My amp wont power both subs the same


you most likely mess up you wiring... im not sure what ohm resistance your subs are, but if its 2ohm or 4ohm you wire straight foreward one sub all positive wires to left positive, all negitive to left negitive, and the same with sub 2 to the right terminal. BUT if your subs are 8ohm then wire it with all positives from both subs to LEFT positive and wire all negitive wires to RIGHT negitive... and see if that helps and good luck!

15" JBL Sub


that is a compleately stretched voice coil my friend
only thing to do is take it to where you bought it for warantee
or purchase a sub that will be effiecient in the box you have
also there could be a chance that your impedence is not matched for the proper amplifier output
what is the resistance on your coil or coils

How to


First of all, make sure your amp is bridgeable. There are a few ways to bridge subs. series: hook one wire from the negative on the left amp output (or whichever is labeled on amp for bridged)to left sub negative. left sub positive to right sub negative, then right sub positive to the amp positive output.(like a big loop through both speakers) parallel: both speakers get their own set of wires, both negatives go to the bridge negative terminal, and both positives go to the positive bridge terminal. Series-parallel: A combination of the two. say two speakers in series, and one hooked up alone, but all to the same amp outputs. Bridging your amp/speakers basically lowers the resistance of the circuit and makes more current flow, more power, louder, harder hit. In series, it also makes both speakers do exactly the same thing, instead of "stereo sound" or L/R differences. What you're probably looking to do is Bridge in parallel. That will drop the resistance of the circuit the lowest, allow the amp to put out the most amount of current to the speakers, and allow your bass to hit the hardest. If your amp only has one output, hook up the same way as above. Just see what resistance your amp is stable down to. If down to 1 ohm, no worries. if stable only to 2 or 4 ohms, you may want to bridge in series to be safe. That will cause the resistance to go up, and will not pull as much current through the amp. The whole time, just remember Bridgeing and higher current mean HEAT so watch your amp. I hope this helped.
