Check all of your electricial connections, especially the ground. I wouldn't suspect anything internal to the amp is the problem.

I just purchased a 12"


Did you purchase your subwoofer from a retail location or online? If it was local, I would take it back. It sounds like a blown subwoofer. Pull the subwoofer out and smell it. If there is a burned smell, the coil was blown. This would also explain why the cone was not moving, just vibrating. Now the other possibility is the amplifier. Check the fuses and check where you grounded the amp. If you can use a multimeter, use it to check your ground. If it does happen to be a blown subwoofer, you should be able to exchange it (from retail), online takes more time but can be done. However, if you purchased from an individual and the equipment is used, there isn't a whole lot to help with. Good Luck.

Hi! I have a Jensen XA2150 Amplifier, from the speaker output I have connected a Subwoofer Sony 10 inch 1100W. Tha'ts gave me a nice bass sound, but now it's death! The amplifier have a 25A fuse,...


Have you checked the fuses inside the amp?Unscrew the cover and with the amp sitting on its back,remove the cover.You have 2-4 fuses,old round type,in there.

When i switch the car on the amp red light comes on


It could be a power fault (polarity is crossed), thermal fault (amplifier is too hot), subwoofer fault (subwoofer is blow or impedance is too low (ohms)), or either the amp has been ran too hard, meaning you played it till it went into themal, turned it off, and turned it back on to reset it, didnt allow it the time it needed to cool off, and continued to play it. If you did that, its hard faulted, and you need to repair or replace it.

Subwoofers bump with cd player turned off...?


This is caused by feedback. Turn off the amplifier or if there is an on/off switch on the subwoofer - turn it off. You could also make sure all the connections at the back of the amplifier are good and try not to have any cables crossing over the one from the amp to the subwoofer.

Ok . i have a pair of crossfire subwoofers, @


Your amplifier is 4 channel... and only 2 ohm stereo capable.

You will get the most power putting 1 subwoofer wired in parallel on each BRIDGED channel.

This will give you a 2 ohm stereo load.

Both + on 1 subwoofer to + terminal on amplifier bridged channel 1
Both - on 1 subwoofer to - terminal on amplifier bridged channel 1

Both + on 1 subwoofer to + terminal on amplifier bridged channel 2
Both - on 1 subwoofer to - terminal on amplifier bridged channel 2

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.

Amplifier Issues


HERE is the manual for your amplifier.
It is listed as being 4ohm STEREO stable Bridged.
Meaning the lowest impedence possible on (2) bridged channels is 4 ohms.
If you have a Dual Voicecoil Subwoofer, chances are - it is wired in parallel - resulting in a 2 ohm load.
This low resistance causes rapid heat buildup, and is causing your amplifier to go into protect mode.
There are many reasons the amplifier is doing it NOW as opposed to the prior vehicle...
If you alternator is not giving your amplifier 14V, it must work harder to produce the same amount of power. WORK = HEAT!
If the head unit is not the same, the signal voltage also has an effect. If the voltage is lower, the amplifier has to work harder to keep up at the same "volume" setting.
In any case, you are over-driving the amplifier, and it is shutting down with its thermal protection circuit.
Either lower the gain on the amplifier, or purchas a mono channel amplifier made to drive subwoofers.
Your Subwoofer is craving power, and you're giving it 60W !!

Improper function


try hooking up your subwoofers in series. then connecting them bridged to the amplifier. as follows: positive from sub#1 into positive of amplifier left channel.. negative sub#1 into positive sub#2. negative sub#2 into negative amplifier right channel. turn the gain down as this will sound pretty loud.

Goes into protect mode


Your amplifier is trying to draw too much current. Your battery doesnt have enough power to run the subwoofers. My solution to the problem would be buying a power cap with equal or more power capasity to your current amplifier. The power cap stores a high amount of current so that when your subwoofers hit those low notes that draw a lot of current, instead of taking it directly from your battery, it will use the stored current from the powercap and wont go into protect mode. Also make sure that your connections on the back of the subwoofer arent touching. If you are hitting hard bass notes and the speaker (+) and (-) wires touch, it will short out and go into protect mode. But I dont think this is what your problem is. I am 99% sure if you go with the powercap, it will solve your problem.

Amp is on, Subwoofer works, but no sound.


here is a short test you can try, remove the rca audio cable from the amp & connect a diskman or toher audio o/p device that you can hook up with the same rca wires, turn on the amp & see if you have sound. you can also remove the speaker wires from the sub & using multi meter read the ohm's of the sub, most subs are 4 ohm. Hope this help locate your problem
