Subwoofer Output Not Working...

I've had this deck for about a year, everything has worked well. I have subs hooked up to the RCA sub output connectors to an amp and 2 10 inch subwoofers. I removed my subs to put somthing in my car, put the subs back and now I hardly get anything out of the subs. I took the subs and amp into a shop and verified they are working perfectly. I even hooked my ipod up to the amp and it worked fine. The amp powers up and everything, and only a little bass comes out. The shop said it is probably the deck that is the issue, has anyone ever had this issue? Everything works find except for that! It sux! Thanks for any help! I recently changed the head units in my pathfinder and the subs were working before. I have two Kicker 12'' CVR and a performance teknique 1200 watt 2 channel amp. I had a kenwood head unit but then purchased the Eclipse head unit. I switched RCA cables and my amp isnt blown because i checked with another amp. I can hear the subs when i switch the amp from LPF to HPF, but the subs wont play. there is a amp turn on wire and a amplifier ground wire,...i dont have them hooked anymore, but could that be why? and now i dont have them connected and its still the same results.

First check that the subwoofer function on the actual head unit is turned up,second check that the gain on the amp is at bout half way then check that it is on a lp (low pass setting)
then check that the boost on the amp is turned up.
please leave feedback.
cheers

Were is the sub woofer tie into at.


You should have two (or more) RCA plugs on the back of the deck that will act as pre-amp outputs for subwoofer and speakers.
Failing that, your wiring harness should have come with a wiring diagram that will let you know which is the subwoofer output.
Failint THAT, the deck itself should have a wiring diagram on the bottom or side telling your which wire is which.

And if that fails, Your deck may not have a subwoofer output. Just attach your sub to the amp pre-out like everyone else.

Subwoofer output: Hold the (AM-) button down for at least two seconds. You can do this function when "SWPRE" in is set to . The SWPRE (Switching Preout) Switches the preout between rear output ("R") and subwoofer output ("SW").

Still no sub woofer output


SET THE CROSSOVER TO "L.P.F."POSITION AND SELECT THE LOWEST FREQUENCY AS THE CROSSOVER POINT.
[AN AMPLIFIER IS SUPPOSED TO "AMPLIFY"(TO INCREASE)ANY OUTPUT.]

TRY CHANGING THE POLARITY OF WIRES FROM AMPLIFIER TO SPEAKERS /SUBWOOFER.{it leads to cancellation of bass output.}
if u still have doubt contact me again.

Swapped out cd players now getting high pass through subs


this is very easy...just unplug the rca cables out of the back of the deck, and plug them into the "subwoofer" output. On some alpine decks this is on a "pigtail" wire that extends from the deck. Once this is connected to the right output, you can control the subwoofer level from the volume knob by pressing it inwards.
Also.... your amplifier should have a low pass filter, it should be on a switch marked "LPF". Make sure this is switched on.

No sub when listening to a cd


you're using the wrong remote output wire. You have it hooked to the power ANTenna wire (blue) which turns off when not using the tuner. You need to use the REM OUT wire (blue w/ white stripe).

Subwoofer Output Not Working...


The first thing to try is disconnecting ONE of the two subs. See if you get more bass with a single sub than with both. If you do, re-connect the second subwoofer, but reverse the (+) and (-) wires.

RCA Problem


You need an active subwoofer input in your amplifier.Which amplifier you are using? Only latest pioneer amplifiers has active sub input and sub output which can be connected to subwoofer.If you dont have active input then you will have to connect it the way you did in old player.
