Make sure that the amp is properly grounded, paint somtimes makes it hard for the wire to be grounded, scrape off the paint with a screwdriver or whatever. also make sure that none of the wire are crossed exept if that was done on purpose

I get a pop from the sub when the power comes on.


This is caused because the stereo you have put in, is a high power output, or higher than the factory and puts that extra power into the factory amp systems causing the amp to surge the power to the speaker resulting in the pop sound,most newer cars use a stereo system without an internal amp so as to reduce heat and a external amp in usually under a seat or dash and a high power stereo boost the output of the amp.

Did you know there is a fuse on the back of the radio and one on the amp? Have you checked them? If the radio is working and no ssound it could be the radio, speakers or wiring. In your case it sounds like either the radio or speakers.

No sound..amp has power to it


Hello eric_sodergu,

**First thing is verifying that the powerlight is lite up, this shows that it is receiving power and is grounded properly.

**Next thing you need to ensure is that the remote wire is connected properly on both the head unit and the amp.

**Third Make sure the RCA wires are all connected properly, try jiggling them around on the amps end to make sure there not just shorting out.

**Check all fuses related to the amp to make sure all the channels are working properly. (Applys to amps with multiple channels and fuses)

If all these things are fine, then the sub could very well be blown. Did you have it up loud before it stopped working ? You said it was working fine then just went all quiet, did the head unit power down as well ?

Post back with any further info or questions so that I can assist you further.

Popping sound! please help - jl 500/1 and two jl w3v3 2ohm subs


no connection are good + to + -to - thats all that matters. either the speakers are blown or you need a stronger amp. since you already tried speakers probably need bigger amp. definitley not the box. no such thing as a break in period, are the subs 10 12 inch or what. you could try to bridge them too that means hook both up to the same +-terminals, 2 wires per screw. it usually isnt the way they hook them up, its the wires fuses etc that cause problems. what guage wires is the speaker wire, the power line etc. if you give me these guages i might be able to get somewere

only thing to do is take it to where you bought it for warantee
or purchase a sub that will be effiecient in the box you have

Popping


If you Wire the 13 w7 in parallel you get 0.75 ohms which this amp is incapable of handling, that's why your speaker is popping. Be carefull cause this setup could ruin both your amp and sub. You have to wire that sub in series so that the amp "sees" a 3 ohm load which it's best suited for.

Car sound system. only sub is giving off sound. other 4 speakers dont work at all


Could be bad outputs from the back of your head unit or also could be bad rca cables. Make sure the amp is on and powered.

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.

Speakers cut off when bass goes up...


it might be that your wires from your amp to your subs are too thin. since they were relatively new the first three months, they were probably undamaged, but after pushing them too much, they probably have broken wires, and can't get enough power to the subs when turned up, i suggest getting thicker wires before investing in a capacitor, it could save you money.
