Question about Velodyne HGS-10 Subwoofer

Open Question

I have an HGS-10, and the unit has current, fuse is good. Issue is that I have no responsiveness using the single sub out on the back of my amp, have configured amp to power up the sub out, also, have followed advice to use a "Y" adapter to make both "in" ports in use. I have absolutely no responsiveness out of the speaker, but amp does have power. Any ideas? Could it be a capacitor issue, and if so, how would i tell?

Im just hooking subs. to my amp , so do I run my woofers to the terminal that say's sub or to just the other speaker terminals.the thing is I have two ssubs. and one sub terminal


If you want to use two Kicker Coaxial or Component Speakers on a single
channel of your amplifier wire the speakers in series. This will improve the sound quality, lower the total harmonic distortion and
lessen the thermal load at the amplifier. This may prevent an amplifier from shutting down, due to over-current protection circuitry.....so definetly on the SUB terminals as this channel provides the better bass response........

I have a 2002 Velodyne SPL10BV. I used to leave it on all the time because on auto it would cut out. It would come on late when watching a movie. Like the signal was delayed to the sub. Now the sub...


The problem is in the amplifier section.

This sub uses the same amp the HGS units have. The pre-amp is a lot like the HGS units as well.

The only place you will find to service the unit will be Velodyne.

My guess is that you will need to send the amp section to them.
It is easy to remove, just make sure to mark the speaker leads before you remove them.

For the auto on function.

You may have a low signal to the sub.

If your source has adjustments for the sub output, try setting it up a number or two. Then use the volume control on the subs amp to mach your main speaker volume.

Bare wire sub to single RCA jack receiver


Yes you can modify RCA cables to make bare wire tails.
If the unit has a sub o/p then you just connect up your sub bass unit to whatever the amp needs.

An RCA cable is 2 wire which is all you would normally need for sub bass speaker level signal.
It may be a good idea to eventually upgrade the wire size if you want really good sub bass as lower frequencies draw more current and so require more copper.

Please let me know if this any help, thanks for using FixYa.

That is a code to inform you of an issue, and to help direct you to a particular area of concern

HOT & E-1 = both for heat issue

E-2 = for a voltage issue

E-3 = for a current issue.

While yours is a current issue, that reflects a problem with your input or output signal pairs. You should disconnect the subs at the amp, then operate the unit as normal to see if the code reappears. This is the start of your process of elimination, where as you will be able to determine the general location of the issue, weather it is before - internal - after the amp, hence If after the subs were disconnected, the code did not return then it would be obvious that you should focus on the subs and their signal pairs. troubleshooting in small increments until the issue is discovered.

Hope this helps...Good luck

Crackling coming from Velodyne DD-10 subwoofer


One of 2 things is going on.

First, the servo mounted in the driver may be going bad or is picking up some noise.

Second, Something in the amp section is going bad, hard to pinpoint the exact problem.

you say that it plays, so I tend to think it is the driver mounted servo unit.

If it is within the warranty time, take the unit back to the retailer you purchased it from, if not contact Velodyne for repair.

Have one wire for audio sub out, but two input ports to amp


This one Wire should be for the +. Try connecting the + to the Head Unit and - to a Common Ground. At the Worst, You will Blow the Amp Fuse if not Correct. The Lead from the Head Unit is Only an Off and On from the Ignition. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Wharfdale PC 10 subwoofer


Some basic trouble shooting is required here. First you need to see if it is a problem from your source or the sub. Try a different source to the sub-woofer and see if it changes the response. If still nothing on the sub, then most likely there is an issue with the amp or driver. Check to see if there is a fuse on the sub, if so, it could be blown. There could also be an issue with the auto switching circuit on the subs amp, in that case, it would need to be repaired in the shop. But before that I would check all of the connections to the sub, and also to the driver in the cabinet. If everything looks good, then put some type of source directly to the woofer to see if it works, if you get sound, then looks like the amp has a problem. Again a repair or replace issue.

Fuse keeps blowing?


The fuse is a protective device. Fuses dont blow unless the amp ( in your case ) is drawing too much current. DO NOT put a bigger fuse in. Obviously, there is a problem with the amplifier inside the sub. If the sub is under warranty, send it in for repair to an authorized warranty depot. If not it's not under warranty, then take it to the authorized warranty depot anyway. Why ? because they will have the schematics ( electrical diagrams ) to troubleshoot the unit quickly and it may be a common problem. If it is a common problem, the factory may have released a modification and possibly it could be covered under warranty under a factory 'goodwill' program. Good luck. Rob

Fuse keeps blowing when sub volume is turned up


the amp draw rating on the amp is 100 you need to put a larger fuse in, such as a 150 amp, it would be a good idea to go to 0 ga but not needed. you might also want to upgrade your altenator.
