if you have real old wires from the amp to the sub try getting new wires on it. check the little wires that go to the cone itself on the sub. sometimes they can manage to get pulled out of their terminals and make sure that thier touching the terminals on the correct spot

HI SOUFBOY , Theres a few things you need to check , First make sure that your amplifier is getting an audio signal form your head unit,Check all the wires for breaks in the amplifier input, secondly make sure that your 12 inch woofers are still connected to the amp check all the wires . Thirdly check your woofers are they blown ? . The best way of grounding your amp is by scrapping all the paint on a spot on the car body inside the trunk or wherever you have it and making sure the ground wire is securely screwed onto the car body on that spot ..

I have sound when I play the radio but no sound when the dvd, cd, or ipod is playing. What could be the problem? Do I need to hook the mute wire up to?

are you running sound through an amplifier? if so, it sounds like you are using the blue wire (power antenna remote turn on) instead of the blue/white wire (amplifier remote turn on). the blue wire turns off when leaving tuner mode, so the power antenna will go down.

Was there sound before? Was it the factory stereo or same aftermarket? You may have missed the factory amplifier turn on wire in the harness.

No sound coming from subs

You definitely NEED a source signal for the amplifier to amplify!

You should have a Main Power Wire, a Ground Wire, A Remote Turn on Wire, and RCA cables (or hi level speaker wires if your amplifier has them)
and the speaker wires to the subwoofers.

I have a 2600 watt Power Acoustik Gothic Amplifier and two 12 inch MTX 7500 superwoofers. When I go to hook up both the subwoofers, it seems like the subs won't work as well, but when I only hook up one...

look at the speakers, is one jumping out and the other drawing in? If so try this. Hook one speaker up normally, reverse the polarity on th other. Hook it opposite how you hooked the other up. This won't hurt a thing but it may cure the problem. Sometimes the amps get wired up backwards inside. I know for a fact that fosgate does cause mine was.

Subwoofer acting wierd

If you turn the power off and restart, the most logical answer i know of is your amplifier is going bad.
I am not sure of the model and brand of your amplifier, but there should be a protection light on the amplifier somewhere that will most likely be on, caused by overloading the amplifier.

You will most likely have to replace the amplifier, or check with the manufacturer to find out if they can repair it or help to further diagnose the problem.

Amp is on, Subwoofer works, but no sound.

here is a short test you can try, remove the rca audio cable from the amp & connect a diskman or toher audio o/p device that you can hook up with the same rca wires, turn on the amp & see if you have sound. you can also remove the speaker wires from the sub & using multi meter read the ohm's of the sub, most subs are 4 ohm. Hope this help locate your problem
