The display screen says protected and there is a weird low tone sound from the sub woofer and nothing works! The unit stays on for a few seconds then turns off automatically. The manual said to reset it by turning it on then off and hold the SRS WOW button for more than 5 seconds. Ive tried that and it did not work still the same, the screen read protected. I even tried to pull the plug out and leave it out for a few hours but no change the screen read protected!!! Any help would be greatly appreciated!
By your description it looks like an internal protection has tripped. The reset will not work if the unit is fried. Did this happen when you were pushing the unit really hard or distorting it? You may have to have it repaired, or replace it. Repairs can sometimes take a couple of months so be wary of this.

Hello Jerry, This means that the unit is going into protection mode. The unit will only go into protection mode for 2 reasons. The first reason would be if there is a short within the unit itself. The second reason would be if one of the speaker connections is causing a short. To isolate which of the two is the issue, you would first turn the unit off and unplug all of the speakers. Turn the unit back on with no speakers connected and raise the volume up. If the unit turns off with no speakers connected then we know that the issue is internal and would have to go in for repair. If the unit stays on, that will tell us that one or more of the speaker connections was causing the issue. If that is the case I would check all of your speaker connections and possibly start with fresh copper connections. Thanks, FJD
are you getting any sound at all out of your sub woofer? what about if you bypass the EQ? If you're getting sound but just not the control over it then the Potentiometer (the volume knob) is bad or has become loose from the connection to the board. More than likely you would not have any sound at all if it's loose. If you have no sound and you are not getting sound after bypassing the EQ then check your head unit settings to make sure that it is set to have full frequency output of the RCA's. It may be set for high pass which will filter out the low tones, leaving nothing for the EQ to work with.
if you have your front and centers set to 'small' you want your Bass out to be subwoofer only, and the rca jack labeled 'sub out' is the only place to connect your sub to if you want to control the frequencies with your reciever. I dont know the brand of your sub, or the inputs on the back of it to advise you where to connect, but it sounds like it worked for you at one time, but suddenly it does not
If you are getting power to the amp, try this....Find a small speaker, unhook your sub and wire speaker to amp. Turn on your system at a low volume....If the other speaker is playing through amp, then your sub is shot.....If the small speaker doesnt work, then its either your channel is gone on the amp or the rcas have quit off off your head unit.

When you touch tone button on your front panel repeatedly, you will get two option for setting bass and trebble, when you select Bass immediatly press your updown Sound field Program Button.
Please note:for better sound if your using Small front speaker keep bass to 0db and select the low frequency through sub woofer and program manually LFE from only Sub woofer and addjust CUT off frequency of Subwoofer to 160 and incase if your bass is not clear put it into rev mode.
The subsonic filter is to help your system's overall performance by blocking frequencies that your subwoofer cannot effectively produce. For example, if you have a single 10 inch sub, it's not likely to be able to produce sound much lower than 60-80Hz with any respectable volume. If you have the subsonic filter on and set to 60Hz, it will prevent a 40Hz tone from being delivered to the sub. If the subsonic filter is turned off, your sub will get everything, and it will try to produce every sound. If it gets a 40Hz tone, it will make the sub work extra hard without any audible noise. It'll just degrade the overall so the answer to "shoud the subsonic filter stay off" would be "it depends on your system" but in most cases, you should keep it on, and set it to the low end of your subwoofer or woofer range. This also applies to filters on mids and highs.
