I have a pioneer GM-X524 amp connected to a TS-W253C subwoofer and it isn't working. It has 12v power to it and a solid ground, but the power light wont come on and the sub isnt working


there should be 3 power related cables connected to the amplifier:

1-From battery to amp via fuse (positive)
2-From chassis of car to amplifier (negative)
3-From head units (power continuous) (blue or blue/white cable) to the amplifiers remote connection.
this connection enables the amplifier to switch on when the head unit is switched on and off when the headunit is switched off.
I hope this helps and let me know if I can further assist you.

I just bought two ten inch JL Audios and i hooked them up and they work great.... i installed them two days ago, and since then my battery has died on me twice.... i dont know what the problem is... i...


Hi there, check when you have switched off the power in the car to see if the amp power lights are still on, if so there could be a problem with your remote wire. Check the cables to he rear of your stereo and with a test meter, determine which one loses power when the ignition key is removed. When you have found this cable, splice your remote lead to this one, and your amp should switch off when you switch the car off, thus saving your battery. You could wire it to a permanent live feed and install a switch to allow you to run the amp without the key in the ignition but dont forget your battery will run down fast because Amps use a LOT of power.

I have this hooked up and works fine with the key on, but when i start the car, sub light, amp and sub dont come on.


You have connected it to the wrong power wire - one that is only active in service mode - first key position.
You should draw a wire directly from the battery (don't forget to add a 40 amps fuse on the wire) to the amps. If you don't want them constantly operational (you will have to manually shut them down) install a relay on the wire with the command coming from a wire from the instrument key position - second position of the key. Use a voltmeter to identify the wires.

Amp has power but sub doesnt work


You say the amp has power so you mean the green l.e.d. comes on correct? If so and you don't get any juice to your sub, check your RCAs make sure they're hooked up correctly. If they are check the wires to your sub, make sure they're making good contact, if its a binding post connection to the sub it can look connected but not be i've had it happen to me before. If the l.e.d. is red, you either blew a fuse on your amp, or your sub is blown, but if you get a green l.e.d. on the amp don't worry about those. If everything checks out and you still don't get power, take your setup to a professional and have him personally look it over for you....... hope you get your bass bangin!!!

Prot. light at High vol. (forget Bass CD)


You may have the speakers wired for the wrong impedance.

How many ohms per voice coil?

How many voice coils per speaker?

If the speakers are DVC, are the coils of each speaker wired in series or parallel?

Are the speakers bridged on the amp or one per channel?

Not working


Make sure the remote (rem) port is powered, if not take another look at your inputs from the head unit as sometimes we tend to forget the channels orientation of ground and positive left and right.

If all else fails, have an audio installation expert help you out, a pari of extra hands would be helpful too...
