I was driving and I turned the volume up a little bit and my sub just went out. I pulled over to take a look at it and the light on the sub amp was out. I noticed that a soda had spilled on my other amp but that one was working fine. Its a sony xplod im not sure what the wattage is it is pretty big. I'm using monstor cables and its just a 10" jl sub. What do u think the problem is? I have no clue

The amp inside the sub has failed. Basically a sub is a mono power amp with a speaker. Though it seems to be getting power it could be that the main semiconductor that does all the work has gone open circuit. If it went short-circuit it would have killed the fuse and power.
The best thing to do is to contact the manufacturers. From this i understood that your speaker system is new. You surely have the manufacturer's guarantee. So its better to contact them than to get it repaired or replaced for free. Sir please do not try to open the sub as it will void the guarantee policy.
Hope your subs come into play as soon as possible....... All the best...
hey unplug your amps and waiting 15 minutes and plug them in...the amp went to protect mode to keep it from blowing...should work unless you have a amp that only the factory can reboot but most amps just reset themselves if you do what i just told you
It could be that the unit is bad, it could also be that the device providing the input is bad. I doubt the cables are bad, but that could be also. Could it be possible that your television has a menu setting that turns the outputs off and on?
Even without the sub, you still get sound through the Bar.
Only way to test it is, different cables, alternate device to provide input for sound.
Turn the bass gain all the way down., Turn up your your volume on bass test song. Crank up the little box next to the steering wheel wide open . Now go gradually turn up the bass gain on the RF amp until you get distortion. Turn the gain down slightly. Now you can enjoy playing the bass from one end of the little boxes setting to the other without ovrloading your amp and subs. Open a can of whoopass on anyone who tries to crank up on your gain.
Suggest turning the volume down on the Receiver/Amp before changing modes. Changing modes can produce signals that can hurt speakers if driving at mid-high levels.
Regarding the sub, turn off the receiver first, then turn off the sub. When turning everything on, turn on the sub first, then the receiver. If you still hear the noice in the sub, turn down the volume in the sub before turning it off (making note of what volume level you prefer for it when it is on).
You had the settings set incorrectly and overdrove it. The voice coil leads are burn't open. If you look at the little flexible braids by the terminals I'll bet they are black/brown and maybe even burn't in half. It's toast.
