Subs not working but amp is

Hey my subs stopped working on me the other day so today I was checking found an un-related problem with the amp so I changed it out but am still having problems, I have even tried changing RCA cables from the deck to the amp, and checking the wires from the amp to the cone of the Sub but all was ok. They would stop before but come back on, either on there own or if I hit a good bump

    Nope didn't work, I changed grounds and still no reponse from the Subs, the Amp still has complete power and getting power to the cones on the subs...

    I mean that I can touch the pen light to the wire going into the sub right up to where it disapears and still get it to light up, the subs aren't even responding to anything unless I remove the black wire from the amp and touch the penlight to where it connects to the sub then it trys to repsond (it kinda crackles for a second then nothing) I am only using one amp for both subs (if that is what you mean by running a seperate crossover)

    My subs are only a few months old, and the other day they started cutting in and out and now I'm getting no sound. The amp is fine, the fuses are fine, the fuses under my hood and under my seat are fine, the wires aren't burnt or anything...I literally have no idea what it could be

Sounds like a Ground problem on the amplifier earth connection to chassis, could be a little loose if so.. also check if the paint is scraped off, so there is good ground. Also check all positive 12+ on the amplifier if all wires is tight. Cheers mate

    Sorry I could not understand the cones on the sub, do you mean the sub is in motion? but still no sound coming out from the Sub?

    Are you running a separate crossover if so.. is it before the amp or after the amp? And if not would you be able to tell me the frequency setting of any crossover that is going to Subwoofer Channel.

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.

My logitech X530 speakers wont turn on

the fuse is soldered in the circuit board in the sub. you have to take the sub apart and get the protective metal cover off the circuit board and un solder the old one. new fuses are found at radio shack they call for a 5a125v fuse.

Car amp's stopped working. Putting out a heart beat sound through subs but no bass.

could be low current ,disconnect all power including ground for 20min N.B most amps will seem to be shorted at output but this is normal due to damping ratio.
