Sub wont hit

This is the scotter stereo thing again. ok so the deck and speakers all work great now. but now the sub wont hit. I feel it vibrating but it just isnt doing anything. i have the amp turned up all the way and the sub section turned up all the way on the deck. it is a bridged sub therefore i have wires running from both terminals on both sides of the sub and then the wires from the amp connected properly. also i have the amp side wires of the sub connected to the L+ and the R-

the subwoofer is a c4 x-10 i had to put it under another product because its not an option

Hi,

Appreciate again the "Ask Me".

Appreciate the "FixYa" rating you have given me here. sub wont hit - moz-screenshot.jpgA request if I may, my being able to assist you is largely dependent on my standing (rating and raking) on the site. Since the Panasonic has been successfully dealt with, perhaps you can re-evaluate and rate the following as you see them fit:

Many thanks in advance. As to your current concern, the 400watt bridged amp:
  • if the Panasonic was wired reversely, might it be possible that the sub amp was likewise wired reversely and therefore suffered similar electronic failure?
  • most high power amps have a built-in DC to DC power supply other than the external 12VDC, these would often fail if reverse power is delivered even just once;
  • since it is heating, then it is actively drawing power. that would mean that (if it is wired correctly), the SMPS (switch mode DC to DC power supply) might have a problem. Often culprits may include:
  1. capacitor;
  2. regulator;
  3. diode;
  4. or any of the other components.
Further diagnosis leading to a repair would require familiarity with electronic circuitry and components, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. Or perhaps you may again seek the assistance of whoever worked on the Panasonic.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

My 10" subwoofer is hitting hard but no vibration, why? please help me to fix this issue.


It sounds like your crossover point is too high ie: 100Hz and up can cause vocals to come through.

Or you are having "crosstalk" between channels.

You need a low pass crossover set at 80 hz & below. It will stop the music you hear in the sub. Don't expect the feel of a single 10 in a room to be like the same sub in a car. A car fills with pressure & gives the feel you want. A ported box designed to work with your sub will give you 3db or more output than a sealed box.

I recently hooked up a new kenwood deck put new front and back speakers in. I hooked up a 1200 watt hifonics amp about to plug in my 2 15 inch rockford fosgate speakers rfz1412 and they dont play. All the...


Ok, so I am assuming that the other speakers are working, and it's just the subs that are not, right? If this is the case, start from the source. Make sure the RCA cables are plugged in and not crimped anywhere. Then to the amp, Did you check the gain levels on your amp. That is the knob next to the RCA input on the amp. Also, check the wiring to the subs. Make sure all your + are goinig to +. Sometimes in the "heat" of a good install, you just lose track of those things. When in doubt. Undo all your wiring and start from scratch. Good luck.

Car stereo Installation Help


As much as it might sound retarded i want to suggest to you that intead of all that hongkong stuff- just go to walmart and get the sony package that comes with the deck/cdplayer and the 4 speakers it comes with a pair of door speakers and a set of 6x9s and all the wiring that you need for a basic install-plus the deck has the rca pre-outs to install an amp. Get an amp and subs from a pawn shop at least you can be sure that it works before you buy it that way- I'm not knocking your idea, but it could be simpler and when you deal with flea-bay you never know whats going to show up on your doorstep. Good luck to you

your speakers probably cant handle the bass.,also they are probably full range speakers ,so hwen the base hits at the same time a voice is singing the woofer is vibrating to produce the basss,there fore distorting the highs and mids {or voice}.You need to add a seperate sub woofer.And puyt capicitossr on the full ranfge speakers to limit the bass..Rating please. :}
