Most often it's a thermal overload, which is most often due to an impedance (ohm-load) that's too low. Check your speaker configuration against the minimum impedance your amplifier can handle.

The Ground wire is hooked up right but the red light wont go off and stay green so the amp will work. It is very frusterating all the cables are the right size its is a 1000 watt amp. I have two 500 watt...


Sounds to me like the amp is going into protection mode. Try placing one sub on the amp with very little gain. One of the biggest reason why this happens is because the subwoofers are wired wrong. What is the brand and model number for your amp?

The subwoofer just quit working the green light is on sound comes out (here voices) the subwoofer no bass


if the light still comes on then the fuse is still good....

a possiblity exists that either the amplifier or the actual speaker itself went bad....if you like you can dissasemble the the subwoofer to access the insides....a simple test....if you connect the driver to another amp (any amp will do as this is just a test) and it makes sound then chances are your amp is bad or just a loose connection.

Amp is going out.


Have you tried replacing all of your fuses? If that does'nt work check your ground........ I would check all your connections also could be a connection shorting out causing your red light to come on.

SUBWOOFER NOT WORKING?


if you have real old wires from the amp to the sub try getting new wires on it. check the little wires that go to the cone itself on the sub. sometimes they can manage to get pulled out of their terminals and make sure that thier touching the terminals on the correct spot
