Signs of a blowed 15 inch subwoofer

Melted voice coil? Short circuited voice coil due to overload? does your amplifier work properly? Is the (-) properly grounded? If the SUB is in working condition and there is nothing wrong with the amplifier.
1) The amp is not powerful enough to run the sub
2) The amp is not properly grounded or powered
3) Remote Sensor wire is not connected
4) RCA Cables or Hi - input sensors are not connected
Check out the installation to verify or the sub may be damaged

I have a Lanzar Vibe 235 amp. the green power light is not coming on, but the red "protect" light is. how do i solve this problem??

Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty. Time to purchase an old school Lanzar Opti Drive. Any of them. The 50 will kill some 12" subs .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. lanzar-vibe-235-amp-green-power-shonxoarcym4awy4zl1imx4o-2-0.jpg Lanzar

Lights up & getting no power to subs

for a test
disconnect everything from the remote terminal in the amplifier
get a bit of wire and connect the remote terminal to a 12 volt supply
does it turn on now?

if yes then check the remote wire from the radio does it become 12v when the radio is on and 0v when it is off

if no make sure that the amplifier has been grounded properly and all the power cables are connected properly

Will my car handle a rockford fosgat 801s power load?

Hello dreww1005,

If your alternator and battery are in good condition, you probably don't need a capacitor. At maximum output, the 801S will need to draw a little over 30 amps at 12.8V. The specifications call for 8-gauge power and ground wiring and a 40A primary fuse. The Vibe's electrical system should be able to handle it OK.

Hope this helps.

Subs dont beat like they should

you've spent alot of money on **** by the sounds of it!!. you should only ever run multiple subs the same brand, power and resistance you can just connect any old subs to a system you need to wire them depending on the load that the amp needs to see. first thing is to try the amp/s on a individual sub to check your amps still work once done check the subs 1 by 1.

Car amp only powers when headlights are on

The remote wire is probably hooked up to the illumination wire or the dimmer wire. One or both of those can be found behind the factory stereo. No big deal. Unhook that and find a 12v positive accessory wire. It will turn on and off with the key and the key only.

Amp prob

The speaker wire will not shut off the amp. Make sure that your power wire and ground are all connected properly. Check for any break in connections with these wires. Also check to see if your remote wire is connect properly and that there is no break in the wire. If there is a break or disconnection in any of these 3 wires, the amp will not come on. Also, check the amp fuse to see if the fuse has flown. Also check the fuse that is connected to your 12V source. If the fuse is blown, there will be not power on the amp. Check all your connections and fuse and you should find your problem
