No power Hello! Ok Where do i start? I was driving one day and then it was working fine the next day I turned on the car. no sound from the subs. So first i startde by taking the rem wire and connecting with the power on the amp. I noticed it would turn on. Out of the 10 times i tried it, sound came out once or twice. I also noticed that the green light was dimmer after 1 second. So i thought there goes my amp. So then i tried my kicker amp just for fun. It did the same thing. When I hoook it up normally running off the deck, isomtimes the red light would come on ( which is bad) and then sometimes no light at all. I checked the fuses, theres power. What could i possibly do other then drive, open the window and throw everything out:) lol

Check all of your wires. Be sure you have a ground, hot, and trigger and that they are indeed supplying ground, +12volts and +12volts in that order. Make sure that you are supplying a signal from your RCA inputs (maybe by substituting another amp) and make sure that you haven't lost the ground on your RCA's also. If ALL of these things are indeed good, then you have a problem with your amp. Because you said that when you connected another amp that you had the same problem, then the problem is obviously with one of the things I mentioned above. Be thorough! Good luck.

I have a 2002 bmw 745li I was listening to music the other day really loud when I was in the car but everything was working fine. When I got home I turned off the car and they (the speakers) still sounded...

Hi check all the wires. Sometimes with the vibration caused by sub woofer can disengage.
Re-plug all wires again and see if that cures the problem

Hello. I have one (1) XS-L1035 being powered by a JBL gts 180X 2/1 channel amp. The sub works fine if i power two(2) subs thru 2 channels BUT if I try to bridge the power to one sub the amp cuts out. Is it...

It sounds like the problem is with the amp. try using the other sub in bridged mode and see if it still turns it off. If it still turns off then its definitely the amp. In 2 channel mode you are using each channel at 4 ohms right? and in bridged mode to 1 speaker it should be throwing a ton of power on a 4 ohm load as well,it should work fine bro -its gotta be the amp

No sound..amp has power to it

Hello eric_sodergu,

**First thing is verifying that the powerlight is lite up, this shows that it is receiving power and is grounded properly.

**Next thing you need to ensure is that the remote wire is connected properly on both the head unit and the amp.

**Third Make sure the RCA wires are all connected properly, try jiggling them around on the amps end to make sure there not just shorting out.

**Check all fuses related to the amp to make sure all the channels are working properly. (Applys to amps with multiple channels and fuses)

If all these things are fine, then the sub could very well be blown. Did you have it up loud before it stopped working ? You said it was working fine then just went all quiet, did the head unit power down as well ?

Post back with any further info or questions so that I can assist you further.

Amp doesn't come on

Hello rheabarb,

You did not say whether or not you checked the wiring going to your subs. Many times, a shorted or grounded speaker wire will cause an amp to fail. And if the amp powers up OK with the subs disconnected, I'd suspect one or more of the wires.

Hope this helps.

Amp is shutting off after 10 min of driving!! please help!!

Does it happen at all volume levels?
What is the gain setting on the sub amp?
Have you checked for 12V @ remote turn on after problem occurs?
Sounds as if the remote turn on relay inside the amplifier is losing signal, or has become damaged. If the protection light does not light up, the problem is not thermal, shorting, or high/low voltage.
The amplifier is in need of repair. This is not an end-user fix. Looking at about $50 to repair.

Thanks for using FixYa- a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

Subwoofer just stopped working. There's power but no sound.

I have the same problem. My guess is that the subwoofer coil is messed up. You MIGHT have to get it recoiled. But before you do any of that get someone with a sub to play their sub in your car, if it works.... then your sub is messed up, if not.....then your amp is messed up ( trial and error ). Today i noticed my subs rubber surrounding is crooked, that may be the problem for me. Also when I press down on the sub it makes a sticking sound, like something came loose. So once i get everything opened and out ill let you all know the solution. Good Luck!
