Check the GAIN level on the amplifier. Also make sure the RCA's are plugged snugly in , and activated on the Car Audio Deck.

When the volume is low the subwoofer sounds good, but when you go up a little volume, the sound is more acute. I have two subwoofer 1000rms each, when use 500rms power aprox, it sound great, but when


If the sub doesn't appear to have any damage like broken surround or a torn spider then I would suspect the amp may be having problems. What impedance are the speakers, what impedance can the amp handle, how do you have it wired to the amp?

My speakers do not work but my subs do.


Good day sir, hi, there reason why speakers don't work could either be the folowing:
  1. you speaker voice coil is burnt, to test, you need to get the door speakers out and locate the terminals, prepare a 1.5 double AA battery, use this to test you speaker. connect a wire from the negative of the battery to the negative of the speaker, and the positive battery to the positive terminal of the speaker with a series of gentle taps, you should hear clicking sound. if not replace the speaker.

2. check your speaker line from the amplifier to the door speaker.
3. check your power amplifier for loose and improper connection.
4. check your power amplifier itself. Thats it.

Its a little work, visit your local electronic repair shop if your speaker still won't work.

My car's sub is ''sub-par'' my expectations


Hello css42103,

You did not specify the impedance or the model of your Audiopipe replacement woofer but if it is the TS-V6 DVC 6.5", then the impedance of each voice coil is 4ohms. If you wired the coils in parallel, you now have a 2ohm load to the amp. At 2 ohms, the amp tries to produce more power, and even at moderate volume, can be driven into clipping causing distortion. Not good for the amp. Definitely not good for the woofer.

I'd try wiring the woofer coils in series and see if it stops cutting out.

Hope this helps.

My PG Xenon 600 watt amp will not power my subwoofers


hello it sounds like your problem may be in the remote/power wire that goes from the back of your radio deck to the amplifier. the amp should have a wire connection that says remote,p.con, or antenna. and its usually the smallest wire connector located by the power and ground wire. this wire goes to the solid blue wire coming out of the deck. you can conect the wires together any way you want. i usualy shave off a little pice of the wire cover and wrap the wire coming from the amp around the bare wire then cover it in electical tape or cut the blue wire from the deck at a fit length and use a wire nut and put the two cut ends in and also the wire coming from the amp. also make sure the amplifire dose not have power to it just to be safe. wouldent want to fry anything.

There is also the left and right wires(ususaly red and white) that go on the back of the deck to the amp.

also chek the volume on the amplifire

No sound comming from car speakers


What kind of car? What kind of system? More details will help me assist you better. If it is an aftermarket in-dash stereo, it sounds like the blue/white wire is not hooked up correctly. This powers up the car's amplifier and lets the sound through.

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
