I dont know if I have everything hooked up right or not, I thought I did, but when I turn on the car to power the amp to the subs the subs just start giving off a loud constant bass that is to no music or anything. So I was wondering what could be the problem

You might check the grounding connections where inputs of amp are connected. Sounds like you have an open (unconnected ground) circuit

Preout section cannot ingage


If you are using a pre out to a sub woofer, you need to make sure that the sub has it's own power amp or it will not work. You also need to go into the user menu and tell the amp that you are using a powered sub. Otherwise it will not turn on the pre amp output

Yamaha rx-v2500 receiver how to hook up speakers


HI,

Follow these steps to connect a powered sub woofer to your receiver: You typically have two options when connecting a powered sub woofer. Input (1) on the rear of the sub woofer would be used when connecting the sub woofer to the receiver using speaker wires. You would then connect the main speakers to the opposite end, or output or the sub woofer to the main speakers. Option (2) would be using RCA line level output jacks, input (2) on the rear panel of the sub woofer directly to the single sub woofer output on the back of an AV receiver. blank.gif

How to hook up 18"


Hello!
SO I am going to give you more of a signal layout from the turntables (or whatever you use to DJ) to the speakers.
Turn tables-> Mixer-> Eq-> Amp-> Sub and other speakers.
The part that I am not understanding is why do you need the QSC amp if you have a powered sub? The powered part of that means that there is a built in amp, which eliminates the need for the QSC amp unless you are sending that sound to main (non sub) speakers.
Hope that helps!

Everything is hooked up and all the Speakers work except the Subwoofer and I dont know why


Make and model would help, also if it is a powered sub.
But, check if the front speakers a set to large or small. Should be set to small if using a sub.
In the menu you can also switch the sub yes or no check that too.

My redceiver gives me a message saying "protect" when i turn the volume up. this started after i hooked up a subwoofer, why is this happening?


You should consult the manuals for the receiver and the subwoofer to make sure you haven't connected the sub improperly. If the amp was working normally before you connected the sub, I would look at the sub hookup first. If the sub is a passive type, and you have connected it in parallel with your main speakers, the amp may not be able to handle the extra load. You may have to get another amp to drive the passive sub. If you have an active sub, you may not be using the right input/output connections between the amp and the sub inputs. Or, you may have hooked the sub up in a way that causes the amp to become unstable. Check the manuals. If you can't resolve it, come mback here with a lot more detail about your gear.

How do I hook up a non powered sub woofer on my htr-5630?


You will need an amplifier or 2 channel receiver. Hook the sub out rca jack to the rca inputs on this new amp or receiver and hook the speaker terminals on sub to speaker terminals on same amp or receiver. Your Yamaha receiver doesn't have any power for a passive sub.Just pick up any old fairly high powered receiver for fifty dollars and you're good to go.I use old dolby pro logic receivers as they are a dime a dozen today. Good luck.

Rca preout not putting out anything after amp/subs are hooked up and ready to pound


On most Pioneer's, there is an option in the main menu that allows you to turn the sub-out on or off. This must be on to let a signal pass from the head unit to the amp. Check this, and if it is on, try replacing the RCA cables. Let me know if this helps :)

Can i hook up highs and subs together to a 800 watt 2 om amp?


Ok firstly it will depend on how powerful those subs are seeing that the amp is 800watts you might want to install a sub which is no more than the 800watts or your amp will bum out......haha trust me I know. I had a JVC car radio and it kept switching off everytime the bass was high, or the volume was high because the 6x9's where too over powering for the system to handle. But I'm affraid the amp won't react in that way something will burn. So just ask the sales person for advice when you purchase those subs and highs.....

SA-AX720 no subwoofer signal?


THIS UNIT HAS NO SUB WOOFER AMP IN IT. THE ONLY WAY TO OVER COME THIS IS TO HOOK THE LEFT AND RIGHT FRONT SPEAKERS STRAIGHT TO THE SUB WOOFER AND THEN GO FROM THE SUB WOOFER BACK TO THE INPUTS ON THE BACK OF THE UNIT FOR THE FRONT SPEAKERS. THE SUB WOOFER THIS WAY WILL EXTRACT THE BASS AND THE FRONT WILL RECEIVE THEIR PART. THIS SOUNDS CRAZY AS HELL I KNOW BUT THAT'S HOW I GOT MINE TO WORK. THE OUTPUT FOR THE SUBWOOFER IS USELESS AND PUT THERE FOR YOU TO HOOK UP AN AMP FOR A SUB WOOFER. EVERYTHING HAS SHORT COMINGS, AND THAT'S THE ONE FOR THE AX-720.

Two amp


I don't know why you'd set the Peavey to 2 ohm to drive 8 ohm speakers??? My other thought is... I wonder if the phase is correct. try reversing one of the speaker wires Left or right side.
