Hi Mate

Just installed this Bass pack into mine today and I initially had no sound either.

Check all of the following.

- Make sure that you have a good earth to the chassis. (Check for green power light led on amp).
- Make sure that your remote signal wire (blue) is connected to the right out on the back of the head unit. If it doesn't have one, use the power antenna wire.
- Check inline and amp fuses, if either is blown, it's most likely a bad earth - clean up contact area/blot with wire brush/wire wool.
- Check the underside of your head unit to see if there's a switch to activate the pre-outs on the back of your unit.
- Check your owners manual about how to actually turn on the sub!! I have an Alpine unit and you need to turn it on from within the menus. There was also a seperate bass level setting.
- Carefully adjust gain and crossover until you get bass.

Hope this helps....If you get any more probs, give me a shout at obzy@blueyonder.co.uk

Cheers

I want to install a self powered woofer and tap it to the rear speakers. Can you please tell me what are the colors and polarity of the rear speaker wires for 2006 Honda odyssey right hand drive


FIRST OF ALL --- THERE IS A FEW THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE HOOKING UP
A WOOFER LIKE THIS ---- IS THIS A STORE BOUGHT POWERED SUB WOOFER ? DOES IT HAVE IT'S OWN CROSSOVER BUILT INSIDE ?? I WOULD GUESS IT NEEDS TO BE HOOKED
UP TO A SUB WOOFER OUTPUT FOUND ON THE BACK OF THE IN DASH PLAYER ..
THE WOOFER NEEDS TO RECEIVE ONLY LOW FREQUENCY AUDIO WHICH MOST OF THE NEWER CAR STEREOS PROVIDE BY AN RCA JACK ON A SHORT WIRE COMING OUT OF THE STEREO ...
IF YOU TRY AND TAP IT TO FULL RANGE SPEAKERS THAT ALREADY ARE CONNECTED TO AN AMPLIFIED SIGNAL THE SOUND WILL BE DISTORTED .......
POWERED SUB WOOFERS NEED A LINE LEVEL INPUT WHICH IS MUCH LOWER THAN SAY
SPEAKERS ALREADY RECEIVING AN AMPLIFIED SIGNAL.
POWERED WOOFER WILL ALSO NEED TO HAVE A 12 VOLT ELECTRICAL CONNECTION AND A GROUND WIRE TO OPERATE THE AMPLIFIER BUILT INSIDE.
IF YOU HAVE NO EXPERIENCE WITH THIS TYPE OF HOOK UP I WOULD STRONGLY RECOMMEND SOMEONE WHO DOES [ CAR AUDIO SHOP ]

Box specs and airspace for 8 inch subwoofers


<span>Regardless of your wattage rating on your sub woofer, sub woofers</span> differ in only one way. You get an "Open Air" and a "Closed air" <span>Sub woofer</span>, That being said, you'll have to check on your magnet which one you have, to make the boxes for that particular sub woofer. If it is an "Open air" <span>Sub woofer</span>, you should see a hole with "wire mesh" or "metal grid" in the center, at the back of the magnet. If it is a "Closed air", the magnet will be solid with no hole whatsoever.<br /><br />If it is a "Open air" sub, your boxes should always be sealed with silicone sealant, and no ports are to be cut in your box.<br /><br />Regarding the "Closed air" <span>sub woofers</span>, you should have 2 ports cot in the corners of the boxes just below your sub on the face of the box, and the port sizes should be around 50mm in diameter. Get yourself some 50mm PVC drain piping to use as ports. Firstlycut yourself a 100mm piece and insert flush with the front of the box. Test your sound. then try a 150mm piecs and test again. You should start with a 100mm long piece in the one box and add 50mm increments to "tune" the port up to 250mm, depending on the frequency of bass you require. Carry on testing the sound on each increment until you find the sound you want, Then silicone the port to the box for permanent fixing.<br /><br />On a 15 inch <span>Sub woofer</span> ranging between 80Hz and 100Hz, the ample box size required should be a box of 9 inches high, x 9 inches wide, x 9 inches deep. Or 400mm high, x 400mm wide, x 400mm deep. <br />Enjoy! <br />
