On the right side of your display you will see a pair of buttons in the upper part of the face. These two buttons are vertical. The bottom button of those two is the SW/Bass button. Press this button and it switches the display to the subwoofer menu . Check the settings here to make sure the subwoofer output is turned on. Each time you press it, it should change menu setting. If you press and hold, it will change to the bass boost menu.

If this does not help you to turn on the subwoofer, it could be an internal problem in the radio that would need to be checked by a professional. Many of these Pioneer radios have an internal fuse that can open up. It is not the type of fuse you could change yourself. It is a surface mounted fuse that is very tiny and does not look like a fuse at all. It would require very good soldering skills to replace and knowledge of this particular component just to locate it.

If you found this free information helpful a good rating would be appreciated.

Let me know if you need any more help.

If the lights on your sub box aren't coming on it's either your ground of power wire came loose or the transformer blew. As for the subs, make sure all the connections are good, especially on your RCA wires. If your amp is getting power, then check your speaker connections. Also, make sure to turn the gain know up. The gain knob is located next to the RCA input on the amp. Let me know if this helps.

New in dash reciever, have sub woofers, they turn on but are not working


There are a number of issues that could be going on here. Go down this check list.

1. Check to make sure your head unit is getting power
2. Make sure the volume is up and that you do not have the unit on mute


The following list is if you have an amp (I assume you do if you have subwoofers).

1. Make sure the RCA cables are plugs to the correct outlet RCA's on the unit.
2. Make sure the RCA cables are not crimped at any point on the way back to the amplifier
3. Make sure the power and ground are good on the amplifer and that the remote turn on is functioning (this will turn the amp on).
4. Make sure the RCA cables are plugged into the right place on the amplifier.
5. Check the gain levels on your amp. This is a dial next to the RCA input. You will need a small flat head screwdriver to adjust.
6. Make sure the subs are wired correctly. If they are wired to the wrong ohms load they may cause the amp to go into protection.


If this doesn't help, you may need to get more specific in your next post.

I have a power acoustik 0V4-1200 amp and 2-12" kicker cvr dual 2 ohms. My amp keeps getting really hot and turning off. I have two pair of rca jacks from my cd player to the amp. One speaker hooked up...


i have found the specs to your amp. 1. Amplifier connections: Lets make things simple. As we look at the amplifier speaker connections, we will number the outputs 1 2 3 4 from left to right for the top connections and again 5 6 7 8 from left to right for the bottom connections. 1 should be connected to a positive (RED) (+) on sub woofer A on voice coil (a) 4 should be connected to a negative (BLACK) (-) on sub woofer A on voice coil (b) Now using a small piece of cable, connect negative of voice coil (a) to positive of voice coil (b) Follow the same procedure for the other sub woofer using 5 and 8 as 1 and 4 This configuration should make the amp run at 4 OHM BRIDGED x 2. i hope this helps. dreamsystems

I have a pioneer 760 2 channel amp bridged to a kicker comp vr woofer. Amp has 8 gauge power and ground 18 gauge speaker wire run to woofer wooofer has 4 inputs two - two + . mine is run amp + to woofer +...


Ok, without knowing if you have the 2 or 4 Ohm Dual Voice Coil (DVC) version of the subwoofer, I'm going to assume you have the dual 4 Ohm version. The reason why is because, assuming you have the Pioneer GM-5300T amp, that amp does not support an 8 Ohm load. If you wire it in parallel, that would give you a 2 Ohm load. Parallel will be solid red connected to red/white dot, then to amp +, and solid black to black/white dot to amp -. Without knowing more specifics on the amp, that should fix the problem. Let me know what you get.

Sub woofers and amp


first of all is the amp a four way amp? if so then you need to know what the watts of the subs are (you dont want to melt them) wire + and - of channels 1 and 2 to one sub and + and - of channel 3 and 4 to second sub, nice thick lead from battery positive (fused) to positive terminal on amp thick lead from a good earth point to negative terminal on amp run a set of rca leads down the opposte side to the positive wire to prevent interference, run thin wire from remote wire of radio to the remote terminal of amp, rca's are plugged in at stereo and at the am. may need a RCA splitter to be able to power all four channels

Good luck Davelee

12" sony subs not working


If all co0nnected properly and working except the woofers only thing to check is to disconnect the bridge and try to connect regularly one woofer at a time to see if it still works.

Could a ground stop your woofer from working?


First check the speaker wire from the amp to the sub, see if it's connected right. Second check the rca cables that goes from your amp to the back of the deck. I f both wires are still connected fine try to replace the rca cables. If it still doesn't work the rear out put at the back of your deck, where the rca's are connected are bad. FYI deck is bad.

Bass in Car Gone, i don't know why!!!


Does the amplifier power up? If so, then check the voltage at the outputs...sounds like the outputs fried. Also, check the RCA cable to make sure it is getting a signal to the amplifier.
