My sub woofer distort why is that?


Try another speaker - if it does the same thing your amp is damaged.
If replacement speaker sounds fine then your original speaker is defective.

Marshall MB4410, with low volume gives no real volume,


Guitar amps have preamp sections (think unpowered audio mixer) and power amp sections (Crown rack-mount amp). An excellent way to isolate audio problems if amp is still producing audio is to check the preamp out (line out). Preamp output distorted = preamp failure. Connect MP3 player to "Power Amp In"...sound distorted = power amp failure. In your case the latter is the case as your "line out" is clean. Also test each speaker for clear sound as speaker cone damage from being overpowered is fairly common. At 300w. I'll assume the failure was not from cranking the volume to loud but a shorted speaker or speaker wiring could zap the power amp in an instant.

On low volume using the clean channel the sound is great but as soon as you get to about three or more the sound gets a bit distorted,the amp is the fender hot rod deluxe, ithort i may had blown the...


try a differrent speaker of suitable wattage and ohmage (displayed with a number next to a ? symbol on the back of the speaker),

or

remove the original amp speaker and gently push in and out on it, checking for uneven resistance or scratching. the speaker should retract and return smoothly, without any scratchiness or uneven resistance from within, and if there is any of this scratchiness or uneven resistance from within, the speaker is likely damaged from too much wattage or distortion.

Wires to main speaker are, Yellow & Blue witch one is the positive ?. Also I am getting distortion from the clean channel even at low volume, the speaker is Peavey 1230 model 8 ohms.


Yellow should be the positive. Try plugging in and reversing. The louder of the two is the one in phase and the correct wiring. If the speaker is pushing out when playing , it is in phase and correct also.
The distortion problem could be a speaker going out. It may not be totally blown, but may be verging.
Holding your hand out as wide as you can push against the speaker lightly. If there is a rubbing or scratching sound, the speaker could be damaged.If it moves freely, and there is no scratching its okay.
Another possibility is the clean channel may have a channel volume set to high. Make sure the clean channel volume is set lower than the master volume otherwise you can get distortion on that channel too.
Good Luck.

My fender hot rod deluxe is distorting in clean channel when I push the volume past 2


Realize that the number on the volume control is only relative... it means nothing regarding what the amp can produce. With a high level output guitar you can easily drive the amp into distortion at very low volume control level settings... what counts is the actual output sound volume and specifically the voltage output going to the speaker. Once the amp reaches saturation, any further input just pushes it into distortion or "flat topping".
An oscilloscope on the output will quickly show when amp starts to flat top.

Konzert AV502a (500watts per channel) + Konzert 600 watts speakers Will I not have problem with this setup? I heard that my amp should have higher wattage than my speakers.. Pls advise..


Your listening habits should not have you pushing the volume level so high that the amplifier will distort, as it is DIRTY wattage that kills speakers. A more powerful amp will distort less if pushed to a given loudness.

BTW: the specs for the amp and speakers are not really what they claim. Since the same company made them the numbers are probably equally wrong. Don't sweat it and don't turn it up so loud that it distorts.

MY amp is going into clip mode. what is clip mode on an infinity car audio amp?


either your pushing your subs to hard and its creating a backsurge of resistance, or the spider wires are touching the frame causing them to foul out. It honestly sounds like you are trying to run too low of an impedance subwoofer, and your amp infinitys clip to keep from distorting, distortion played through a subwoofer at high volumes is damaging to the subwoofer and the amplifier. reduce your gain, and check your wires, the clipping should stop, a good rule of thumb always have an amplifer that will do rms what your speakers can do peak, so that way you can keep the amp turned up only 1/4 of the way and be pushing your subs at a decent rms volume with 0 distortion.

I have a kenwood kac-8452 4 channel amp that makes the speakers pulse after the volume gets turned up to 10. I also have a kenwood amp doing the same thing with my subs. any ideas?


Its not pulsing, its called clipping. The sound is being clipped due the amp being pushed past is power capacity and distorting the signal. This will damage your speakers very quickly. No amp should be turned more then 3/4 up. If its not loud enough you need to purchase a larger amp or be comfortable with the wattage it produces at 3/4 volume. You may also have speaker wires touching/crossed causing th issue.

What duz level adjustment do


Hello,

The level control controls the input level coming from your head unit (receiver) to the amp.

Your Sony users manual is a little vague on how to best adjust the level and other controls.

Here is one method that some installers use and works well with most amps.

Most 10" subs sound best between about 80-100hz and below, so start out by setting the LPF at about 80hz. The HPF will not be used. Next turn the bass boost and gain all the way down. Turn on the radio and set all tone controls, bass, midrange, treble to flat, usually "0" on most head units. Turn the volume up to approximately 3/4 volume level or just until you begin to hear distortion. Now, back the volume down until the distortion is gone. Next turn up the gain control on the amp until you hear the subs start to distort then back the gain down until the distortion disappears. Next turn the bass boost up again until the subs begin to distort, then either back the bass boost down or back the gain down until the distortion is gone. You may need to play around with the bass boost and gain controls to get exactly the sound you prefer.

Hope this helps.

12w3v2 Started making distorted bass noise at low volume


Connect each speaker coil one at a time to a square 9 volt battery and watch for the cone to move.

Also try hooking another speaker to your amp just to make sure the noise isn't in the amp.

You can use a 9 volt battery to test wire polarity also. Hook up the + wire of the speaker to the + terminal of the battery and the - speaker to the - battery terminal. If the speaker moved UP or OUT then the wiring is correct. If it moved IN or DOWN then the + and - wires are backwards on the speaker.

Also if you have two or more speakers hooked together test all the same way while they are hooked to each other. ALL of the speakers need to move in the same direction at the same time.

Clipping causes more speaker damage than anything. "Dirty Power" can happen in good quality amps too. The gain control is to match the voltage between the headunit and the amp. It is NOT a volume or boost knob. If you overdrive the first stage of the amp and then clip it damage will occur to the amp and speakers at some point.

Hope this helps.
