My big question would be "Did your friend know the subs were dead when he gave/sold them to you?" If so, he needs a swift kick in the ***.......But onto your question.

If the cone doesn't move at all, or there's a scratching sound when it moves, you've definitely have problems. I have no firsthand experience with speaker repair, but I do know it exists. A quick Google search for "speaker repair" can give you some ideas for places to ask. Keep in mind, most of the speakers that get repaired are those that are discontinued, classic, or otherwise expensive enough to make the repairing of it a better option than replacing it. In your case, it may be the same price to repair it as it is to replace it.

I hooked up my two 10 inch JL Audio W3v2 2 ohms to a mono JL Audio 500.1 amp and the subs will not work. I have the subs wired in a series. I then hooked them up to my friends amp and the subs worked. Any...


try one at a time. if they work then try hooking them up differently. if none work, then check to see that your amp is not in protect mode. if amp is ok, then check to make sure you have your rcas connected to your amp. in other words, re-check all your wiring. if still nothing, try your amp on your friends car and vise versa.

I have this same problem


Check the power with a volt meter. The battery power, then the remote power. Also make sure it's grounded properly. bad grounds cause mayhem.

Orion xtr15 to a american leagacy la 660 amp


your only choice is to run the amplifier at a 4 ohm mono load - this will not reult in the amplifier making much power.
Positive on sub to Positive on amp.
Negative on sub to Negative on amp.
This is your only possibility.

Adding a second sub in the same fashion will result in a 2 ohm load, and your amplifier will run at its rated potential.

How to wire 2 dvc subs to a orion 2150sx ? dont know the wire colors or how to hook um to my amp.


what impedence are the voicecoils?
Dual 4 - Dual 2 - Dual 1 ??

Orion SX / GS / HCCA amp Wiring guide:

Orange = Right Positive
Black/ Orange = Right Negative
Yellow = Left Positive
Black/ Yellow = Left Negative
Blue = 1+1

Bridging of SX or HCCA Amps:
1. Use the Orange wire for Positive.
2 Use the Black/ Yellow wire for Negative
3. Push "in" the Mono Button
That amplifier is only 4ohm mono stable - so assuming the subs are dual 4 ohm voicecoils...

First wire both in Parallel Independently So each subwoofer is now a 2 ohm load. (combine + and + - and- on both subwoofers)

Now Take a positive on one voicecoil of sub #1 and attach to amplifier+(orange)

Take a - on that same subwoofer and attach it to a + on the OTHER subwoofer.

Finally, take a - from the second woofer to the amplifier -(black/yellow)

Now you have a 4 ohm load on your bridged channels.

Sub does not operate


There could be many issues, from fuses in your amp, to power getting to your amps, to "low" impedance on your amp, and the circuit shutting down. Or it could even be your head unit, perhaps there is a setting on the HU that turns ON/OFF the subwoofer. BTW, you are running to low of an impedance on that amp. If my memory serves me correct, the lowest impedance that they JL Audio recommends is 1.5 Ohms.

Blown solobaric?


how did he messed up? anyways, if u push the cone of the sub down and u hear a sound like "TUN!" its most likely ur sub is irremediably damaged. The cone needs to come up perfectly as a good sub would do. I need to know exactly what ur friend did b.c it is quite weird to mess a good sub by slightly switching cables
