Re: are these speakers any good?
These would make great secondary subs if your going for an elaborate install, but in the end even cheap no name subs will sound good if coupled to a good amp. The best way to know is to test them, push on the cone and feel it's resistence, if it feels tight, they should pound, if not, be careful.

If the radio fader is adjusted fully to the rear and there is no sound the speakers and wiring should be tested.
Best way of testing is to remove the radio to access the wiring to the speakers. Identify the pairs of wires to the rear speakers and apply a 9 volt battery to each pair. If the speakers and wiring are good they will make some noise and the fault will be either the connection to the radio or the radio is defective.
If no noise is heard when applying the voltage, the rear speakers should be accessed, disconnected and tested in the same way. If you have noise it is the wiring at fault. If no noise the speakers are faulty.
The result of testing can be verified at every stage by using a known good speaker and a couple of micro jumper cables.
It may not be worth the expense, but if the cone or surround are torn, they can be replaced by a speaker repair shop. I just had a pair of JL 10W6's re-edged (the foam surround around the cone deteriorated after 11 years), and the repair cost $100 for the pair, including parts.
make sure all your gains are turned up to atleast half.
Check your head unit, make sure your low pass frequency for the RCA's amp is set to high or set to more than 0. Make sure you don't have your fader set toward the front of the vehicle or you won't get any bass, but the subwoofer will be pulling only what the head unit is sending to the amplifier.
if that doesn't work I would try another pair of patch cables.
Do you have another subwoofer you can swap out to test your subwoofer with?
I have a subwoofer that has something wrong with the coil itself. Has your amplifier blown any fuses? If so the subwoofer coil is bad.
Also make sure you have a solid ground for your amplifier.
Hope this helps!
The problem is that you need the satallite speakers , they have the volume control on them which thats why you only hear the subwoofer.. yes , i tried other speakers to it and no sound either.So you will need the satellite speakers it come with..
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.
